WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
"A home is more than just a house or condo. It's the place you will build memories with family and friends and take pride in the home that you have created. Doesn't it make sense then to work with an agent that understands this in addition to the typical real estate transactional services?"
The longer I'm in the business, the more I realize that Buyers and Sellers at the core are looking for simply this - an agent that they like and can trust. Isn’t that about how you feel in selecting an agent?
I was born in Toronto and have lived my entire life here. This has given me the distinct advantage of understanding and appreciating the transformation of this great city to what it is now and what it’s becoming – an international destination for investors and highly talented and educated immigrants and widely recognized for its tolerance, diversity and cultural exchange. The crazier the world gets, the more we seem to get noticed.
I began my real estate career straight from University where I completed a BSc in Pharmacology and Physiology (what was I thinking), and then a MBA with emphasis on Marketing and Finance.
During my real estate career I've worked in diverse disciplines from Corporate Executive level buying investment properties on behalf of pension funds, to Commercial Brokerage in selling apartment buildings under Power of Sale for financial institutions during the early to mid-1990's, to running my own brokerage in offering Office Leasing services to downtown companies and finally to the present, in working in Residential Brokerage in representing home owners and investors in the purchase and sale of single and multi-family residential properties. Over 25 years’ experience in the business has given me insight into market cycles and trends, a firm understanding of what makes a good deal and how to best negotiate it in the optimal outcome for my client.
In addition to being an Ontario licensed Real Estate Broker, I am an Investor (having bought/renovated properties and still hold onto almost all of them), Custom Home Builder, as well as an Instructor with the Toronto School Board mentoring those interested in getting started as Investors themselves and as a way of giving back to the community. My passion is real estate Investing/Renovating/Building and I’m always happy to share with those Buyers/Sellers/Investors looking for an agent with hands on real estate investing knowledge and experience.
"Ed has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to real estate. I had the privilege of having him as my real estate instructor and have witnessed first hand all the great negotiation techniques that he uses to get his clients the best deal. Also he is a very likable person with a great personality."
“We feel that Ed sets himself apart from other brokers in that he has a strong background into various types of household construction, and offers insight into possible problem areas. He offers a strong set of soft skills as he was very perceptive to the Sellers' interest and coached us through a winning offer. Without hesitation, we would recommend Ed to our friends and family. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful on many fronts, and we are confident others prospective buyers or sellers would have a very positive experience working with him, just as we had.”
“Ed's a great real estate agent. He is very patient when working with buyers to find their property, an excellent strategist when it comes to negotiation, and a thoughtful professional throughout the entire process. He listens carefully to his clients' wishes, and then goes above and beyond to make them a reality. We've worked with Ed a number of times, in both commercial and residential environments, and have been very pleased each time -- as have our friends who have worked with him at our recommendation.”
