Okay, this review has been a long time coming. Ed represented us twice, once when we didn’t end up buying, and once when we did. His advice was good, and he made the experience as easy as it could be.
On the first occasion that we were house hunting, Ed did most of the groundwork. I was flying back and forth from California, and needed someone to get inside and judge the houses for me. Circumstances took us out of the housing market, but Ed did a great job. He knew the neighborhoods well and pointed out the ups and downs of the houses.
The second time, we were already renting in the area, and we did a lot of research by ourselves to find the place. Once we found the place we wanted, we brought Ed on to help us seal the deal. He found comps, recommended an excellent mortgage agent, worked with our attorney, got contractors to fix things for the bank and helped us deal with a a miserable set of sellers who delayed closing and literally ripped out parts of the house that they wanted to keep as memorabilia. He did everything right, and was real help through the entire experience.
