Real Estate from the Ground Up

Ed is a 20 year veteran NYC Broker, a Co-op owner in Manhattan, and the owner of several successful investment properties. Being completely immersed in the business, his experience will help you to realize your goals, whether selling, buying, renting or investing.

Ed's professional history is a path of entrepreneurial business growth. With a College Degree in Business and Culinary Arts, Ed moved to Aspen, Colorado. He taught skiing by day and worked as a Chef at night. Securing his first commercial Real Estate deal, Ed opened a restaurant on Nantucket Island and another in Telluride, Colorado. He grew that venture into five restaurants by the age of 28. In 1992 he moved to Manhattan, moved his focus to Manhattan Residential Real Estate and founded two of his own Real Estate firms. The first retail business was located on 72nd and Central Park West, and the second location opened shortly thereafter on Broadway and 70th Street. Three years later, Ed joined forces with founder Clark Halstead and now CEO, Diane Ramirez to continue his growth.

Client Testimonials

Dear Ed, I absolutely love the apartment. I am so, so happy there. It's the perfect amount of space for me, and I can't get over how lovely the block is. Thank you again for all of your help throughout the process! Sally M.
On a personal note, Ed, I have valued our relationship. Having had to work hard for most of what I have, there are not many I would trust to have my best interest at heart. I do know that you can be counted on to take care of business, in this case, my business. Thank you for that. - Otis T.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Ed sold my studio years ago. He then found me a much, much larger apartment and sold that for me too. Ed staged the apartment, and sold it to a qualified buyer in record time! - Roger P.
When Ed and I started looking for a Manhattan home, I didn’t really know the market. Ed was so familiar with the city and the inventory that we focused like a laser beam and found exactly what I was looking for. He even negotiated an amazing deal for me. Ed is on top of it! - Brian C.
Edward is the real thing. I’ve bought and sold many times in Manhattan and I can tell you that Edward separates himself from other agents. He’s been in it for over 15 years, he is a businessman. He cares about what I want and works tirelessly for me. I want Ed on my side. - Michelle A.
Mr. Herson’s marketing methodologies were even Impressive to me. And I work in Social Media! - Mike W.
Ed managed my transaction so smoothly, he just seems to have a knack for anticipating things. - Jean B.
Ed is my friend and my agent. Not easy to be either of those but I trust him with my family and glad he’s my friend even more. - Joseph D.
