I started out in the real estate industry in 1996 on the Sunset Strip, I worked at Coldwell Banker assisting top agents in the Beverly Hills/Hollywood Hills areas whose clientele included many of Hollywood's most successful people even today. It was here that I began developing into the kind of real estate agent that I wanted to be: honest and grounded. My only goal is to do an outstanding job for my clients. Soon after I left the Strip and moved south in search of a new real estate adventure.
In 1999 I began selling apartment buildings and income properties in the South Bay and Los Angeles; I became adept at all facets of cash-flow buildings and can prove to be a benefit to income investors, fix-and-flippers and new home buyers as well. Also, it was around this time, I started managing apartment buildings as well, the largest one being 29 units. This also gave me keen knowledge as an operator that most agents do not get a chance to attain. Winning awards in sales at Safari and working as the office manager for 3 years, I supervised and trained agents and became an over-all, well-versed professional in the real estate industry.
Joining ZipRealty in January of 2013, I am in awe of Zip's superior technology: The website, mobile app and technological advancements stand above the rest of the industry. Zip's website and Seller's Center assists me in providing top rate information and service to my buyer and seller clients. I currently service the South Bay, Los Angeles and most of Orange County. Most importantly, I am a keen negotiator and property value evaluator. Bottom line: I find you the deal and I get it done for you.
News flash: Just given the honor of "Best new Zip Agent of 2013."
On a personal level, I believe it is my modest Midwest up-bringing, my university education from Purdue and my easy-going attitude that keeps me well-grounded, in touch with my clients needs, and well-liked in the community and by my clients. I cherish my relationships with my family and friends; my memories I hold close.
I am an avid fisherman, and love catching exotic, big game saltwater fish, like White Sea Bass, Halibut, Dorado and Yellowtail. I also love writing and recording original music. I have recorded over 300 songs in my life and really love it. The ultimate day for me would be for us to reel in a house or apartment building together, go fishing, while listening to an album I just recorded.
I wish you a great day and more importantly... a wonderful life full of blessings.
The only reason I didn't give Edward 6 stars, is because they only allowed 5 ! Buying a house is a process comprised of a million intricate details. Edward knows every one of them & this will put you at an extreme advantage when competing for a property. Edward also has the unique ability to make a very stressful process, comfortable, and dare I say, even fun. Utilizing Edward's skillset will get you the property you want at the price you should pay, in a very reasonable amount of time. I highly recomend Edward Halterman .

Home buyer in Los Angeles
I enthusiastically recommend Edward Halterman, my Zip Real Estate professional (and I am already passing along his name to colleagues and friends)! As a first-time buyer, I needed a realtor not only with experience and knowledge but also honest and respectful communication abilities, patience and follow-through for my million questions and excellent negotiation skills on my behalf. Unlike some agents, who are pushy and patronizing, Edward listens to what his client wants and needs BEFORE making suggestions or expressing opinions, based on his experience. Then, he listens, again. He takes time to research questions and to contact necessary parties if he does not have an immediate answer, and he responds in a very timely manner, always keeping his client "in the loop." As a lady, I very much appreciate Edward's construction background and forthright comments on what he observes on-site. I watched my own knowledge base grow and my attention to detail expand from our interactions. I have an intense schedule involving family, work, performance and volunteer activities; Edward always managed to arrange property visits and paperwork sessions, including inspections, appraisals, escrow and key exchange, so that it was convenient for me, his client. (He willingly came to my worksite and other locations to facilitate processing various submissions.) In this particular financial climate, obtaining a satisfactory loan can be challenging--a headache to say the least. My experience was a major migraine that traversed through five different institutions! Thanks to Edward's experience and determination, he was able to make suggestions that helped me screen lenders and that even assisted my funding lender in resolving issues to secure my loan. Edward is a realtor that walks with his client from start to finish, an agent who helps his client achieve the goal--home ownership! I am very, very pleased with his service.
