"After working with a realtor that created more problems and very unreliable I looked for another realtor. Based on a national reference I contacted Ed. Best move I made! He was patient and walked me through the process of getting back on track. He is right up front, straightforward (a quality I find lacking these days) and returns calls quickly. To me it quickly became apparent that none of my questions were "dumb" questions. The property was sold in a reasonable amount of time. I would not even consider anyone else."
