With 24 years of experience in the medical field, Edward brings a sense of calm to his work as a real estate agent, facing challenges with emergency room-type savvy and bedside-quality care. He says that helping people in their most stressful times helps him feel calm and he is driven by the responsibility and accountability he feels to produce a positive outcome for his clients. One of the qualities Edward gained in his extensive healthcare career was a keen ability to read people and put them at ease. A connector, he thrives on building relationships. He is also a straight talker, providing facts and helping his clients make informed decisions about their real estate needs while protecting their best interests. While he appreciates the varied experience he received in his first career, he loves the world of real estate and climbed into the top 22% of producers at his former agency in his first seven months. Edward is not only an active member of the Arvada Chamber of Commerce, he also loves being part of the community there, especially the first responders. It’s not uncommon for him to drop by the hospital or firehouse with pizza or ice cream for his friends and former colleagues and enjoys having many of them as clients. (Someone once told him, "Nurses don't trust people, we trust other nurses"!) He also volunteers on his kids’ PTO board and would tell you it has given him answers to questions he never knew he would need. Edward grew up as a military brat, born in Germany and then lived in several states in the US. Some of his biggest inspirations are Joe Banomassa for his exceptional guitar skills (Edward just took up the acoustic guitar), and friends who demonstrate playfulness, honesty, humility, drive, self-confidence and who don’t judge others and always put family first. Even though he is a competitive cyclist (he continues to ride as a medic on as many as 6 century rides annually), he is a mountain biker at heart and grew up racing mountain bikes in each of the Four Corners states. He is often a riding medic for the races he participates in including Elephant Rock, Copper Triangle and the Triple Bypass. Edward surprisingly hates blood, gets faint easily, but worked in the ICU and ER anyway. He loves The Princess Bride (it’s the only movie on his original iPod) and cries easily when talking with his seven-year-old daughter. He hates waking up, but hates sleeping in and prefers calling instead of emailing or texting. He loves to travel and Heli-ski (he recently returned from Heli-Boarding in British Columbia), enjoys a variety of music (especially live), appreciates a good book, and likes tattoos, motorcycles, the Broncos, powder films and following the Tour de France. More than anything else Edward has accomplished, nothing makes him more proud than the role of father to his kids and husband to his wife Kellie who he describes as kind, forgiving, nurturing, brave as crap…and a darn good cyclist!
