While earning his bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College in Moraga, Edward took night and summer classes to earn his real estate license, then immediately began his real estate career. Since then he has continued to invest in improving his knowledge and sharpening his skills. He earned his real estate broker's license, an MBA degree, and attended UC Hastings College of Law. Edward earned the designation of GRI (Graduate Realtor® Institute), which is the real estate industry hallmark. Only REALTORS® who successfully complete more than 90 hours of comprehensive training can be called a GRI. These agents are considered the elite of the business due to their in-depth training in legal and regulatory issues, technology, and professional standards, as well as sales process and negotiation.
