Meet Ed

Hello my name is Ed and  I am  a native of Michigan. I have been a resident of Manatee County since 1978. After moving to Bradenton, I graduated high school and started a career in the grocery industry. After several years in the grocery industry I decided to go back to school and received my certification from S.C.T.I as a Fire-fighter and began my career in the Fire Service in 1983. I also received a certification from M.T.I as an E.M.T in 1986. Still on the job, I am currently a Lieutenant Fire medic with 30 years in the Fire Service. With retirement around the corner I am shifting gears and now able to spend more time with my wife Perla to assist her with the growing of her property management and leasing business.

Throughout my career as a Firefighter I have also been involved with customer service working for companies like consumer electronics, floor covering , residential heating and Air Conditioning. I received my Real Estate License with my Wife Perla 17 years ago and we are both Property Managers and Leasing specialists.
