 "Ed was very sensitive & responsive to the special needs of my family.  When Katrina hit New Orleans, Ed was there to help move my family quickly. In a crisis, I was able to move with the Hornets knowing my wife and children were in good hands"   

Coach Jim Cleamons, Los Angeles Lakers

"I want to offer a sincere 'thank you' to your team for helping us sell our house so we could move to San Antonio. Thanks to your selling efforts, we're now in a gorgeous house on a cul-de-sac, with a pool and everything we could ever want. We are extremely grateful for all you did."  

Clarence Greenwood and Audra Hicks, Hawthorne                                           

 "We will ALWAYS be happy to refer Ed to other people.  HE DESERVES IT!  Plain and simple, Ed has our every confidence.  Thanks for moving so fast!  Our neighbor always told us that you were aggressive... after getting a top dollar offer in just nine days, we walked across the street and told her, you weren't kidding!"  

Michael & Traci Berry, Redondo Beach                                

"I am extremely impressed by your professionalism and assertiveness.  Thank you for working so hard on my mother's behalf.  I am thankful for the excellent service you all have provided her.  I live in Colorado Springs, and have been aware of the progress and hurdles you all have had to tackle to make this sale happen. I am a regular Dave Ramsey listener and his web referred you as providing high powered realtor services.  That is an understatement.  You guys definitely deliver. "

 Mark Sistoso, Carson                                                                                                                                                

 "Immediately [the] team went to work within 24 hours of obtaining my listing to ensure my success.  Ed was referred to me by Brookfield, a new home builder in Long Beach, as well as by my credit union loan officer, as the top Real Estate agent in the South Bay. I needed immediate results, because I was buying a new home, contingent upon selling my home very quickly. The builder mandated that I secure a buyer within 30 days and close escrow within 30 days of obtaining a purchase agreement for my property. I signed with Ed and immediately his team went to work within 24 hours of obtaining my listing agreement to ensure my success. Ed and his "Super Team" were professional, friendly, and always timely. They followed through on every detail of the selling transaction. Additionally, I was also impressed with Ed's strategy of using a "Home Staging/ Interior Re-design" consultant to capture the warmth and living space available, which was a great selling point. In closing, I would recommend Ed and his team to anyone seeking an experienced and professional agent."

Shirley Kennedy, Carson

"When we first met Ed, we knew he was the agent for us.  We came across Ed through a flyer and we also saw his name on a sale sign in the neighborhood.  He has a very straightforward, no "bs" approach.  His track record speaks for itself.  He is a very complete agent and we were very impressed with his presentation.  We spoke with other agents, but we liked Ed's style.  He did a fantastic job negotiating with the builder and was available when we needed to contact him.  Ed and his team did a great job following up after the transaction and we would definitely recommend him to others."                                                                                         

Angelina Sberna & Laurence Sotsky, Hermosa Beach

"I never had a problem reaching Ed.  He was always accessibly and able to answer any questions.   I decided I wanted to sell my rental property and I came across Ed's name in the local newspaper.  He's aggressive and was confident he could sell my rental property.  I've used other agents but they weren't as aggressive as Ed.  I have already recommended Ed to my friends."

Madonna Davenport, Torrance

"We got the price we wanted for the home and Ed made it happen very quickly.  We had been driving past the home we were interested in buying and we saw Ed's sign in the area and we called him.  He explained all the details in buying a home and took care of our needs.  Ed is highly committed to his job and surrounds himself with good, dependable people.  Ed is very businesslike and is focused on putting deals together and getting the end result."

Elizabeth Damerow, PalosVerdes                                                                                                                               

"I would most certainly use Ed again and refer him to others.  He knows how to sell homes.  We were looking to sell one of our homes and immediately called Ed, since he had sold another for us.  We knew he could do the job.  He's experienced, organized and totally committed to succeed and has great negotiating skills.  His support staff is extremely talented and detailed.  After the sale, Ed called and wanted to make sure we were happy and satisfied with the sale.                                                                                              

 Joe Giacalone, Manhattan Beach

"We're extremely satisfied with Ed's performance and level of commitment.  We heard about Ed when he left an advertising flyer on our door handle.  We originally bought the home in 1974 and we didn't try to sell it until we contacted Ed.  He was the first and only agent we used.  He was professional and explained the entire real estate process to us.  If we ever encountered a need to get a hold of Ed, he was highly accessible at all times.  We were so satisfied with Ed and his staff that we referred others for his services."  

Suburo and Furmiko Shiruru, Manhattan Beach                 

"Ed and his team worked very hard and are very dedicated to their customers.   We saw Ed's ad in the local newspaper.  I called him and he gave me a market analysis on my home.  He's an excellent agent who knows the market.  I personally found Ed very reasonable and easy to work with.  I am impressed with Ed and I never had a problem getting in touch with him.”  

Jackie Ung, El Segundo

“We were very pleased with the level of customer service we experienced. Very impressive! Ed's knowledge, marketing, integrity, level of professionalism, and follow through are second to none. It was very easy to communicate directly with Ed, and we would refer him right away to anyone we know who needs a top Realtor!"    

Peter Bautista and Karina Wu, El Segundo
