A North Carolina native and resident of Wilmington, NC for over 20 years, Ed is entering his eleventh year in the real estate business. He's experienced the booms and the busts and has learned that the real estate market is ever changing and an agent must adapt when those changes occur. Through this he has also learned that the antiquated salesman approach when handling the purchase or sale of a home is rarely a good thing. By eliminating the "salesman" technique, it allows Ed to provide objective advice based on what is best both financially and emotionally for the consumer. This approach gives the client a sense of confidence and control, fostering a positive working relationship.
In 2003 Ed attended an intensive 3 day workshop where he obtained he Consumer-Certified Real Estate Consultant (C-CREC) designation offered by the National Association of Real Estate Consultants. This is the only such designation that focuses solely on the consumer's best interests and providing options tailored to their needs. Many agents call themselves consultants, but Ed was the first to obtain this designation in the Wilmington market. Additionally, Ed has completed all the necessary requirements to earn Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist designation (CLHMS). This designation not only focuses on the upper echelon of homes, but on how a consumer wishes to be treated during the buying and selling process. He also holds degrees from UNC-W and UNC-CH.
Ed has been married to his wife Melissa for 14 years. They have two sons ages 9 and 6. The performing arts are Ed's passion, but real estate is his livelihood. Ed teaches as an adjunct lecturer at UNC-W with the Department of Theatre. As a hobby he works professionally as actor in film, television, and commercials and has worked with such stars as Judd Hirsch, Eva Marie Saint, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, and Haley Joel Osment just to name a few. If time permits a round of golf is always nice, but not nearly as nice spending time with the family on the water.
