‟Eddie is thorough and knowledgeable. He is always available and made sure to teach me along the way. I was buying my first unit and I wanted to make the right decision. Eddie brought in contractors, introduced me to lenders and continually kept me focused on the factors I felt were most important.”
‟My husband and I found Ed on Instagram and admittedly took a bit of a gamble, having never worked with him or known people who had. We are so, so glad we did. Within days, Ed had set up 14 different showings over a two day time span. This sounds minute, but even the logistics were so well though out - scheduling back to back meetings across the cit … y with time to spare in between is no easy feat! Nearly all of the places he showed us fit nearly all of our criteria - again, no easy feat. On the second day of showings, we found our condo, and Ed worked very quickly on a Saturday night to go through the offer process. His counsel to us throughout the process was spot on, making things super easy and seamless. Everyone he recommended to us for the actual process itself - e.g. lawyers, etc. - were great recommendations, and we could not have had a more positive experience. I think Ed would agree this was the easiest transaction, but we owe a lot of that to him helping us navigate any potential hurdles from the beginning, so we could avoid them altogether. We're now two weeks into living in our brand new condo, and couldn't be happier” Read More ▾
‟Ed did a great job selling our condo. He is knowledgeable about the market and made the process so easy. We highly recommend Ed for any of your buying/selling needs.”
‟I found Ed Grochowiak to be extremely professional -- not to mention dependable, reliable and accommodating. He gets my highest marks for providing fine service and insight.”
‟Working with Ed exceeded any of my expectations. As a first time homebuyer, I was not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away Ed was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with me to determine what would be a good fit for me. He even recommended a lending agent, which I ended up using and greatly appre … ciated. Ed was willing to meet me late in the evening to view my town house and put together the offer letter within a couple days of our first meeting. He was very helpful in explaining the entire process and really relieved my stress level even though I was on a very tight timeframe. I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in my offer getting accepted. I highly recommend Ed” Read More ▾
