"Jay and I were fortunate to find Ed's website on the internet in 2004 when we were living in Ohio. We communicated via the internet for several months, and he sent us valuable information and photos of perspective properties before we actually came to see the Sarasota area for ourselves. Our first meeting was at Lakewood Ranch, and he instantly made us feel comfortable with his knowledge and his easy-going manner. We never felt pressured or rushed, and he really listened to us when we expressed our desires and our concerns. We decided on a property, and Ed stayed in touch with us during the next six months while our house was being built.
We now think of Ed and his wife as our friends, and we would certainly recommend him to our friends."

"We just wanted to sincerely thank you for 'going beyond the call of duty' in helping us find our home. It started in April when you called us in Canada as a follow-up to an internet inquiry and culminated with the successful purchase of our new Florida dream home. However, between these events you spent three days showing us numerous homes, making many visits to take progress pictures, and arranging home inspections with three hours notice. Your efforts to help us went well beyond the normal professionalism in the real estate market. Your kindness and thoughtfulness will always be remembered and appreciated."

I wanted to take the time to let you know how appreciative we are for the kindness, professionalism, and generosity you shared during our relocation process. You did more than one would typically expect a Realtor to do. You were certainly a great asset throughout the entire process. Thanks for everything; we will never forget the hard work and dedication you shared with our family."
