Choy was the Founder and original developer of Lake Olympia, a 1,000 acre prestigious planned community in the suburb of Houston, Fort Bend County, Texas. Choy's group purchased 1,000 acres of scenic land in 1982 which was known as the Palmer Plantation, previously owned by Judge Palmer's family and heirs for over 100 years. The land was very rich in Texas history. It was one of the first 300 land grants by Stephen F. Austin in 1824. In 1865, all the slaves in Fort Bend County were declared free under a huge magnificent live oak tree in this plantation. The slaves celebrated under this tree for months and they named the tree "The Freedom Tree". The book "Freedom Tree" was written by the late Edward Palmer. Today, under Choy's "Master planned by nature" unique concept, giant oaks, wild lives, and 130 acres of sparkling lakes still remain. The Freedom Tree and an abundance of nature areas are untouched and preserved. Lake Olympia was presented by the National Association of Home Builders the highest Gold MIRM Award for the "Best Overall Marketed Project" in the nation, as well as numerous other industry awards from Texas Association of Builders and Greater Houston Builders Association. Over the years, numerous national and world renowned celebrities have called Lake Olympia home. Most notable celebrity residents include the world's top female pop singer, Beyonce Knowles and her Destiny's Child singers, NFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon, NFL coach Jack Pardee and quarterback Chris Chandler, many other NFL, NBA and Major League players and coaches, television celebrities, etc. During the deep Houston recession years in the mid-80's, Lake Olympia was one of only a handful of developments that were able to weather the storm and survived. Choy's group sold the development company to a foreign investor in 1997 who later passed away in 2002 and his family closed the company in 2003.

Greater Houston Builders Association presented Choy the most prestigious "Harris B. Lieberman Distinguished Service Award" for his outstanding service and dedication to the construction industry community and its trade association. Choy was also presented the "Developer of the Year" Psiam award by GHBA, and "Asian American Entrepreneur Award" by Houston Mayor Bob Lanier. Choy served on the Board of Texas Department of Transportation Toll Road Association, City of Houston Redevelopment Authority and Reinvestment Zone #1, Fort Bend Economic Development Council, Fort Bend President's Council, Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, etc., governmental and trade organizations. Appointments were made by the State of Texas, Mayor Lee Brown of Houston, Mayor Allen Owen and Mayor John Knox Missouri City. Choy designed and created the official flag of Missouri City and was a member of several committees that created and enacted the city's subdivision, signage and park land dedication city ordinances.

Choy's picture appeared on the cover of a Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce Magazine, honoring him among a group of most influential civic leaders responsible for making Fort Bend County one of the 10 fastest growing counties in the nation in the past decade.

By now, most people are aware of the sub-prime mortgage problems which brought down the entire financial industry and pushed America into the deepest recession since the Great Depression. Andrew Choy was aware of the sub-prime problem long before most people realized. 4 years ago, Choy was a key government witness who testified on behalf of the U.S. Attorney Office and Internal Revenue Service against scam artists involved in loan frauds. Now, with the financial crisis hitting all Americans, the scam artists turned their business to troubled homeowners, offering them loan modifications services that are nothing more than scams for hundreds and thousands of dollars over the Internet. Determined to help Texas homeowners to avoid these scams, Choy is now dedicating his time to teach them how to do loan modifications themselves through seminars, thus saving them a lot of money and time.

Choy is the author of the book Homeowner Survival Guide – the Housing Bubble. His author pen name is Andrew C. Mungar. This book is the most comprehensive guide book ever written about the housing bubble, teaching troubled homeowners how to solve their problems, and revealing all the lenders’ secrets on loan modifications, short sales and all options available to homeowners. This educational book traces the causes of the financial crisis, offers solutions, and predictions of the housing market. It also warns readers how to avoid scam artists. Choy was a key government witness who testified on behalf of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Internal Revenue Service against scam artists involved in loan frauds. Due to the popularity of his book, Andrew Choy is constantly booked for radio and television talk shows all over the country. His book is available on Amazon.com and all major book retailers.
