Ed was born and raised in the Phillips area. Growing up in this rural location, I learned to love the outdoors at an early age. Hunting, fishing, mushroom and berry picking, cutting firewood and being self sufficient were part of life in rural Phillips.
During my high school years I worked in the woods, on a dairy farm and in some of the local factories; and my love of nature and wildlife grew as did my interest in real estate. Price County is so special with all of the public lands, including county, state and national forests; and with the lakes and rivers, it is a wonderful place to live or just vacation.
After high school, I earned a Marketing Degree and became a Realtor in approximately 1978. I received a Graduate of the Realtors Institute (GRI) and a Certified Residential Specialist Designation (CRS) through the years. This took additional training and a performance standard to obtain. As a matter of fact, only 4% of realtors in the United States have earned the CRS designation. With nearly 40 years in real estate, I pride myself on my knowledge of the area, attention to detail and accurately representing properties and determining values. That along with my experience and training allows us to offer unmatched real estate service.
