Andrew Lanoie

Founder

Andrew is an expert at building teams and connecting people with opportunities. Formerly a Talent Agent at William Morris for 16 years representing some of the world’s biggest celebrities, including Tim Allen, Taylor Swift, Steve Martin and Tom Petty, to name a few. In 2009, Andrew began investing in single-family residences and acquired well over 100 properties in under 4 years. During this timeframe, he discovered the massive demand for affordable housing in America and chose to leave the agency and focus full-time on real estate investing. After a few initial investments in manufactured housing and Mobile Home Parks, Andrew realized theopportunity for a powerful and positive disruption in the market by providing the dignity of a free-standing home with the affordability of manufactured housing—and hence the creation of Park Place Communities. In less than 5 years, Andrew and team have closed on over 26 manufactured housing communities in 12 states, with close to 1,800 lots, quickly making Park Place Communities a Top 100 Owner / Operator in the U.S. With his sights set firmly on becoming a national Top 10 owner and operator, Andrew will continue to lead the vision and execution strategies on a daily basis. Andrew will focus on growth through strategic partnerships, scaling the companies, and investor relations. In addition, he will be launching a foundation in late 2018 to assist familiesand individuals going through financial hardship.
