The guy is just a very talented real estate broker. But he is more like a consultant as opposed to an aggressive salesman. He is the most creative person that I have ever worked with in any field. Ed brought in furniture, artwork, flowers, fruit etc. He cleaned and organized our closets. He had someone do minor renovations to our floors and windows to make them look like new. He literally transformed our apartment into something that I could never have even envisioned. I practically did not even want to sell the apartment after he finished getting it ready to show. He then sold our loft in less than a week and we received the highest price per foot ever obtained in our building.
And I am not easy to work with. The thing that separates Ed is that he works so hard coupled with his out of the box approach to doing things. I don’t think he sleeps at night because he answers my emails at 7am or 2am. He will take phone calls at midnight. He just loves his work and he loves people. Furthermore, he shows tremendous attention to detail. For example, I asked him for some basic information on investing in real estate and he wrote me a 20 page report complete with charts and graphs. He is also the only real estate broker I know who is like a full blown concierge service. He had his limo driver take us to the airport. He set up the perfect caterer for the party I was throwing. He picked a high level moving company that did a wonderful job transporting our artwork. He helped the buyer through and arduous loan process on a multimillion dollar loan that was very tricky. His team of people was wonderful to work with as they exuded a level of professionalism that is just not seen very often. And his lawyer was amazing throughout the deal.
I could go on and on. Ed is just a great real estate broker and now a friend as well. I am so grateful to have met him.
