Occupation: Firefighter for Station #50

Fun Fact: Terrance has served on the board of various community organizations through the years, and is presently on the Springfield Preservation And Revitalization (SPAR) Council board.

Q: What brought you to Springfield?

A: We bought our home in 1998 and 5 things attracted me more than any other: The people, proximity to Downtown, bang for your buck, proximity to the major highways, and the originality and character of each home.

The other pioneers of that time were as friendly and supportive as you could ever ask for, and you couldn’t find a larger home for a more reasonable price. You also couldn’t duplicate my house if you tried. It would be too time consuming & costly. The craftsmanship is amazing and there’s not another like it in the world. Those things brought me to the neighborhood.

Meet Your New Neighbor: Andrew

Occupation: Naval Division Officer, stationed at Mayport aboard the USS PHILIPINE SEA.

Fun Fact: Andrew was Student Body President of his class at The University of Tampa, which he just graduated from this past May.

Q: What brought you to Springfield?

A. The Navy gave me a choice of bases to be stationed at, and being a Florida guy, I chose Mayport in Jacksonville. Once I knew my destination, I started to look at houses online. I’ve always lived in a typical, suburban house. I wanted something different. The houses in Springfield really stood out amongst the hundreds of others that all looked the same. Being close to Downtown and all the fun things it has to offer was a selling point too.
