As an avid chess player and successful business man, Ed Smith's been making the
right moves his entire life, especially in business. Ed began his business ventures as a boy, starting simply by sweeping out barbershops for 25 cents a day. At the same time he mowed numerous yards per week and built up his paper route from a fifty household delivery to an enormous six hundred household route. Using the money he had earned through these successful ventures, Ed made his first real estate investment when he was in the seventh grade, perhaps foreshadowing his future.
Later, Ed sold that real estate investment
and continued to work throughout high school and college as he earned his degree in Accounting from Marshall University. Although he enjoyed his accounting experience, he came back to his true love, real estate. What was originally a part-time pursuit grew to a full-time passion.
Ed began his real estate career when he ventured into commercial real estate development. He conceptualized, developed, and managed multiple retail stores; all in major shopping centers. His real estate business matured and intensified as he ventured into single and multi-family residential development in Virginia and North Carolina. Today, that professionalism and dedication has been taken to the next level with Ed starting and owning his real estate firm, RE/MAX Valley, REALTORS.
