Andy Florance is the founder and CEO of CoStar Group. Two of its subsidiaries, Homes.com and Apartments.com, saw significant growth in traffic and transactions in 2023.

Apartments.com introduced new features designed to provide a more seamless and efficient experience for renters and operators. In addition, CoStar Group made an $18 million commitment to support the development of Virginia Commonwealth University’s forthcoming Arts and Innovation Academic Building.

“Since founding the company in my college dorm room, I have remained dedicated to building platforms that simplify and streamline all aspects of the real estate business for consumers and professionals alike,” says Florance.

“I’ve been working in the real estate industry for nearly four decades, and during that time I’ve seen how CoStar Group’s innovative technology has effectively digitized and transformed the real estate landscape into a more efficient and effective marketplace. The satisfaction from our users is the greatest reward I could ask for,” he says.
