Ed has been a Whitefish resident since 1988. Upon his move from Santa Barbara, California, where he spent 8 years as a firefighter, he owned and operated Alpine Village Market for 17+ years. As proprietor of this small, local business, Ed made connections with many fulltime and part time Whitefish residents. This network allowed him to easily transition from success in the small business industry to success in the real estate industry. As a Realtor since 2005, Ed specializes in luxury real estate throughout the Flathead Valley. In addition to real estate, Ed enjoys hiking, skiing and playing golf. He is a proud husband and father of 2 children, and now 3 grandchildren. He and his wife love to travel the world, but Ed finds the greatest pleasure in sharing the beauty of life in Montana.
