Edward has real estate in his DNA. It has been his passion and driving interest since he was a teenager: he grew-up helping his parents manage their multi-family assets in Montreal, Canada where real estate investment was dinner-table talk. Los Angeles has been home for the last 19 years and Edward is now a proud Angeleno who thrives off the unconventional character of LA. After a brief stint in entertainment as an agent trainee at the then-William Morris Agency, and television development at Dreamworks SKG, Edward’s love of buildings, architecture, and the urban environment drew him back into the real estate world quickly.
From his start bidding on residential foreclosures on the courthouse steps in Norwalk to acquiring debt from regional lenders and making plays on a variety of distressed assets throughout the last Great Recession, Edward has a breadth of knowledge about the industry that surpasses sales. He has flipped homes, developed small infill projects in inner-city neighborhoods, and as a developer in the hotel sector, he has sourced hospitality deals and assembled his own projects totaling over $150M dollars that attracted illustrious partners in the field.
Edward has worn every hat in real estate and because of this experience, he brings a unique perspective and set of tools to the table along with his market expertise, his creativity, his instinct, and his work ethic.
Edward received his undergraduate degree in Communications from McGill University and his MBA from Loyola Marymount University where he double-majored in marketing and real estate finance. He is trilingual (fluency in French, working knowledge of Polish).
