About Andrew

Born and raised in La Crosse, WI, I have become very familiar with the city and its surrounding area. Recently married, my wife, Aspen, and I plan to remain in the area to raise our dog, Ali, and our future children. When I am not working, you can likely find me on a softball field during the summer or taking in a basketball game during the winter.

I chose to become a Real Estate Agent because I love meeting new people throughout the community and get excited by the thought of assisting people in finding their dream home and making the process of the biggest purchase in their life as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

I chose Castle Realty because they share the two core values by which I conduct myself in all aspects of life, honesty, and respect. I am readily available and can be reached by phone, text, or email. I look forward to meeting you and assisting in your home buying journey in any way possible!

Andrew is a member of the:

National Association of Realtors®, Wisconsin Realtors® Association, La Crosse Area Realtors® Association, and the Castle Realty Expert Advisor Team where we are using a proven strategy to net our clients more money and make the transaction more efficient.


Community Give Back:

It is difficult to narrow it down to just one as they are all extremely fun and rewarding to be a part of. If I had to choose, I would say my favorite so far has been the Neighbor’s Day Castle Clean-Up. It was great to spend some time outdoors and be able to lend a helping hand to others throughout our community.


I am married with just one furry, four-legged child, a Boxer named Ali. Outside of that, I have 3 sisters. Our families, along with my dad, make it a point to get together as much as possible, either for sporting events, cabin trips in the summer, or just gathering somewhere for a grill-out.

Bucket List:

Bucket lists are important to me because it gives me something to continually strive for, either short-term or years down the road, and they help me keep a healthy balance between my personal and professional life. Being able to share them as an organization has helped me better understand the values and dreams of those around me, as well as come up with a plan to achieve my own goals. One adventure at the top of my bucket list is to visit all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums as well as the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Andrew Bakalars was an amazing REALTOR and I've worked with some of the best in the industry including Bill Favre. I was fortunate enough to work with both on this sale and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We found the perfect house and in the crazy market now, Andrew made it effortless. Will be recommending him to anyone I know looking to purchase/sell.
