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.
Edward was a pleasure to work with as I sought to find the perfect home. He listened to what I was interested in and sent me to potential locations in places I expressed interest in as well as other neighborhoods that were good matches for me. As he has been working in Southern California for many years, he had a lot of helpful local knowledge that was very useful for me.
One of the things I appreciated about Edward is that he communicated effectively in a way that respected my availability. I never felt like he was deluging me with too much information or that he was ignoring me. We had just the right amount of contact, and I think that shows a respect and trust from him that you don't often find in this business sector.
Perhaps most importantly, I really trusted Edward and his tastes. He truly listened to me and I feel that he was batting for me all along in the house hunting process. Some of the other realtors I have met did not make me feel valued, possibly because my price range was not very high, but Edward made me feel like I was someone special to him and that his goal was simply to make me happy.
A good example of this is when a possible unit came on line when I was out of town and Edward went to go look at the condo for me. He called me up and told me that it was just what I was looking for. Through his hard work, I was able to tour the location even after another offer had been accepted. Eventually, that was where I ended up. He was competitive, but honest and fair when negotiating a final price for the home, and I have nothing but good things to say about my experiences working with Edward.
When my friends and family decide to look for a new place in the LA area, I will definitely be sending them towards Edward Halterman.
Edward is a dedicated real estate professional who gets the job done.
He helped me find a great income property. I will hire him again to represent me in the future.
Home seller in Los Angeles
Dear Mr. Edward Halterman, I just wanted to write you again and thank you for all the help you gave me in selling my cousin's house that I inherited. I had so many emotional and physical concerns about selling it. My friend Betty Harbison gave me your phone number as you had helped her find her, "Dream Home." I don't know if you recalled how much help you gave me. You me back within the hour after I called you! We met the next day and several times within the week after you obtained all the information you needed. We discussed options in what to do and in a company that would be the best to work with. Once all the papers were ready, you patiently went over them with me and went to the escrow office with me to make sure all was understood & signed. Once everything was completed you called me, to "See how I was doing" and I told you I was at peace, satisfied and could now go on my inner healing. I want to thank you and I defiantly would refer others to you. After everything was finished there were some other questions and I knew to call you for help! You immediately gave me the resources to get the answers and I got them! I hope you will continue to have more business and help others like you have helped me. Sincerely, Dolores
