About

Andrew D. Holman, PLS and President of Holman Land Surveying, Inc.

Andy Holman, Professional Land Surveyor & Owner

Andrew D. Holman is a third-generation land surveyor in the state of Washington.  Under the tutelage of his grandfather, father, and uncles, Andy began working in the field at age 8.  After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Real Estate at Colorado State University in 2002, Andy was awarded Business Student of the Year by a group of Denver businessmen and women for his outstanding leadership efforts related to the student-operated Summit Investment Fund.

Andy went on to work as a financial analyst for a boutique investment firm in Greenwood Village, Colorado.  Although he enjoyed his time as an analyst, Andy’s love of the great outdoors drew him back to the Pacific Northwest and he began working as a real estate agent in Friday Harbor, Washington.

In 2007, Andy was offered a part-time field position by John L. Thalacker, PLS. Within a month Andy was presented with a full-time work offer from John and he has never looked back.

When Andy is not surveying, he enjoys spending time with family, fishing in the beautiful San Juan Islands, and archery.

Memberships: Land Surveyor’s Association of Washington, National Society of Professional Surveyors, and the San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce.
