We bought a house with Edward in the RTP are in July of 2013. Due to a rather restrictive criteria, our home search took about 6 months to complete.
Throughout the process, Edward was always responsive and immediately available. As first time homebuyers, we had absolutely no idea about the process, paperwork, costs, etc. During our first meeting, Edward explained the ins and outs of home buying in North Carolina in incredible detail that showed an expertise that we simply had not seen with speaking with other agents. We walked away from that conversation sure that we had found the right man for the job. Over and over, Edward proved that he had a mastery of process; it might be tempting to say he did an excellent job at walking us through the process, but in reality, he did all the hard work himself.
One thing we really appreciated was Edward's patience with our criteria; he never tried to put us a place we didn't want, or ask us to change our criteria. Instead, he took an offensive approach, trying to find properties that weren't listed in traditional places. He was able to find us a property that was originally for rent, Thanks to his professionalism and knowledgability, he was able to take the property owners through the For Sale by Owner process. He flawlessly managed the tension of representing us as buyers, and still walking the sellers through all the appropriate processes and never once tried to represent both sides. So much so that in a conversation I had with the sellers afterwards, the seller said, and I quote, "That guy is awesome! I'm going to recommend him to anyone we know who's buying or selling."
Edward is an excellent agent; I can't think of a thing I would've asked him to improve on.
