Ed was highly proactive in anticipating and solving problems; always returning phone calls and emails promptly. To sum up, we feel that Ed went considerably above and beyond what was required. He exceeded our expectations and made the entire process as painless as possible.

I am Writing this letter to express my appreciation of the work that was performed by your sales representative, Ed Swindell. The property at 2608 Burtus Drive had been for sale with different real estate companies in Goldsboro. Those two companies "talked the talk", but were very short on performance and enthusiasm.
Ed started with honest, professional discussions and guided us through the entire selling process. He made suggestions that helped move the property in a timely manner. He also came by the home several times to discuss current market issues in Goldsboro that helped me make decisions to sell the home.
In short, I was very pleased with Ed's professional help and guideance through out the selling process. I will certainly recommend Ed Swindell to anyone interested doing any real estate dealing in the Wayne County area.
When we decided to relocate from Northern Virginia, Ed took charge of the entire process. He found land for us in Goldsboro, found a realtor for us in Northern Virginia, helped us through the selling process, and was by our side during the building of our home. He did it all. Ed truly understands all aspects of real estate and scrupulously listens to his clients, making sure that they get what they really want, even if what they want wasn't what they thought they wanted. I have never worked with any realtor who has more understanding, empathy, and integrity than Ed Swindell. Can't sell your house? See Ed. Having trouble finding your dream home? See Ed. I know we will again!

I corresponded with Ed for several months from New York State. He was instrumental in locating and focusing what our residential needs were and what properties we would be interested in. Without his efforts, I doubt that I would have purchased the home that we are now very happy with. I have a lot of "snowbird" friends that want to locate here and Ed will definitely help them with their home buying decisions.

When we met Ed at an open house, we were about at our wit's end. We are in our seventies and knew that it was time to sell our twenty acre retirement farm and downsize, but the farm was my husband's hobby and he really didn't want to give it up. Another problem for us was that other real estate agents had told us that our farm would not even sell for tax value. Ed was very patient and listened carefully to our needs and fears. To make a long story short, within thirty days, Ed had not only put our house and farm on the market at a price much higher that tax value, but he brought us a full price offer from a young couple that seemed to love our farm as much as we did. While waiting for the closing, Ed found us a new home under construction on an acre of land that suited us perfectly. I have a new house and my husband has room to garden. I will recommend Ed Swindell to anyone.

My banker recommended Ed to me. My first experience in building a “spec house” was turning disastrous. The house had been on the market for 387 days with another agent my partner had insisted on using. Ed met us at the house and showed us market comparisons of why our house had not sold. We were way overpriced. Ed worked with us to adjust the price and 27 days later he negotiated an offer that allowed us to break even. If I ever decide to build another “spec house”, Ed will be involved from the selection of the lot and plan through the closing.
