There are numerous valuable qualities worth seeking when selecting a real estate broker, but there’s one quality which stands out far above the rest. Experience. It’s the one quality which ensures that your broker will know what to do to no matter what challenge the market throws your way.
Real estate is constantly changing, and recently, that change takes the form of the real estate team. With these teams come more opportunities for miscommunication and for the ball to be dropped. With me, there’s none of that.
I’m a hands on broker. So when you call me, you talk to me.
I’m the type that believes in the power of a phone call, but I don’t discredit the opportunities provided by digital marketing. I’ll use Premier Homes and tap Hasson Company networks to get your home in front of eager buyers around the world, and if you’re looking to buy a home yourself, my familiarity with these tools will ensure that I find the best fit for you.
Each of my clients gets my undivided attention. I don’t have someone else doing my paperwork and I certainly don’t have someone else putting together offers. I’ve worked diligently over the last 26 years to build an understanding of the housing market in Lake Oswego and the surrounding communities, and it’s a hard-earned understating that I like to pass along to my clients directly.
Working with a single broker provides a personal experience, yes, but it’s more than that. It just makes sense. Working in this time-tested way streamlines the experience, and prevents the process from turning into a cycle of information chasing.
Beyond the focused attention I give to my clients, there’s the distance I’ll go to make sure that the deal is what they need it to be. I’ve cleaned gutters, taken a more than a few trips to the dump, and even found myself in a crawlspace or two – all to make sure that the experience is painless, and that the home meets my clients’ standards.
If that sounds like something you’d like, give me call. I deal equally with sellers and buyers, and would love a chance to work with you.
"I was introduced to Ed through my employer's relocation package and at first didn't expect much because I thought (incorrectly) that they just gave you some "Joe-Schmo" to do as little as possible to get you setup. Boy was I wrong. The market here at the time is very competitive with houses selling almost instantly with multiple offers. Ed was not only very skilled/knowledgable about the market but also a great, friendly guy I enjoyed working with. The house we loved and offered on he helped us beat out 5-6 other offers thanks to his knowledge and negotiation skills and got a great house - even closed early on it. I would highly recommend him to anyone."

"Ed was so easy to work with, scheduling time was always flexible. He had great ideas on how to evaluate properties, and how best to approach making offers, as well as detailed items that were worth considering when putting an offer together. He's got contacts in many helpful areas that go beyond just the process of looking at and buying properties. Top notch."
