Andy Sterns


A man who wears many hats―but not at the same time, of course.

It’s one thing to be a jack of many trades. To be a master of them as well takes a lifelong, concerted effort. And that’s exactly what Andy Stearns is all about.

A native of Scarsdale, New York, Andy attended Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio for two years, before moving to the Northwest. In 1989, he spent a life-changing semester at the National Outdoor Leadership School. While learning about climbing, rafting, winter camping, first aid and caving in some amazingly beautiful places, he realized how rewarding it can be to challenge yourself both physically and emotionally.

Shortly after that, he moved to Seattle and learned how to build a house. Then he bought a house in Eugene and subsequently rebuilt that as well.

Since that time, Andy moved to Bend and has worked as a carpenter, a general contractor and most recently, a property manager, generating a long list of happy (and lucky) clients, tenants and co-workers. Loving all of those jobs – and the various clients and subcontractors he came in contact with – led him to establish My Lucky House, which allows him to wear all of the many different hats associated with buying, selling, renting and repairing homes.

In his spare time, Andy wears a few other hats as a volunteer for the American Red Cross, an angler in his wood McKenzie River drift boat, and a “volcano-bagger”.
