Education and Books
“What did you learn today? Always be learning.”
Were the words of a mentor Edgar had. Although Edgar didn’t go to any traditional schooling after High School, he was devoted to learning all aspects of real estate since an early age. This passion of real estate developed since the first day he went to work on a construction site with his father:
“I remember going to work with my dad when I was 14 years old during my summer breaks. One day my father brought me a construction site that the developer was building for a school… I just kept seeing the guys wacking nail after nail into plywood with their hammers in one-two shots . I was amazed at how my dad did it so quickly as well, soon i followed and boy was i wrong, by the 10th wack that nail wasn’t getting even hit! I knew right then and there that real estate was for me, why? Because it felt good to be tired and sore but you could slowly but easily see how with one nail at a time, you can build a massive structure.”
An avid ready, Edgar reads as many as 1-2 books per month ranging in different aspects, from farming all the way to stories that enriches one’s soul. Edgar is continually educating himself on many aspects of real estate as well to continue to learn and grow.
Edgar has always been a long time believer in video marketing as the future for real estate. This doesn’t just apply to video tours of homes, but what’s also within the area of where people will be moving to. This includes videos of local things to do, events to attend to, family gatherings, etc. Real estate doesn’t stop at home it’s all about the environment and making the most of your surroundings. When you get a video from Edgar he will showcase the best the city will give you in more ways then you can imagine.
