Hi, I'm Ed.
Coming from a family with three generations of home building experience, I have always been interested in real estate. When I was a kid, I'd help my dad on job sites during the summer doing masonry work and building spec houses. Swinging a hammer instilled a strong work ethic at an early age as well as an appreciation for homebuilding. After graduating from Penn State, I headed south to Charlotte to start my career as a financial advisor. I was fortunate to be offered an opportunity in 2004 to help grow a car dealership in metro Atlanta, specializing in luxury cars. I loved selling a tangible product … so I started my own auto brokerage company and used car dealership in 2012. I enjoyed taking the stress out of car shopping for my clients and making what is normally an arduous process a seamless and pleasant transaction. I took great pride in the number of customers that returned to me time and again, often purchasing multiple vehicles for their family and loved ones. Let's be honest, the used car shopping experience is often plagued with doubt, and I thrived on the opportunity to provide a fair, safe and enjoyable sales experience for customers. After 15 years of helping thousands of clients, I decided I wanted to do something on a bigger scale ... homes.
I joined a startup here in Atlanta, which was a real estate crowdfunding platform specializing in residential property loans for fix and flips. After working with real estate developers and rehabbers here in the Atlanta market, I gained an appreciation for what our great city of Atlanta has to offer in the real estate market. Due to my experience lending and working closely with real estate investors in the Atlanta market, I'm able to help navigate the buying and selling process from both personal and investment perspectives. My career path has allowed me to be involved in some pretty major life choices from managing financial planning to cars, real estate investing and now homeownership. With my drive and experience as a trusted sales professional, I would love the opportunity to be your REALTOR® to help you buy or sell your home.
I currently live in Virginia-Highland with my wife, two kids and our English Bulldog, Sylvester 'Sly' Stallone. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, hiking, cooking, soccer and art. I have lived in Brookhaven, Old Fourth Ward, Inman Park and Virginia-Highland as well as owned a business in Marietta, so I'm very familiar with many neighborhoods in metro Atlanta. I'm willing to go where my clients need me, so please don't hesitate to reach out.
