Meet Ed - Your Rock County Area Specialist

Ed was born and raised in Janesville and graduated from Craig High School.  His parents were both employed by the Janesville School District, and Ed briefly worked with the district as a custodian before he entered the Air Force. 

Ed's first six years in the Air Force were spent in law enforcement.  He was a Security Police patrolman and narcotic detector dog handler.  Ed had been stationed at Cannon AFB New Mexico, Osan AB South Korea, and Edwards AFB California. About that time Ed felt that it was time for a change so he cross-trained into a new career field.  He became a Computer/Display Maintenance Technician on the E-3 Sentry aircraft based out of Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City.  Ed spent 14 years in that position and saw the world from there.  He flew missions in Operations, Just Cause (Panama), Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Northern Watch, Southern Watch, and finally Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).  Ed retired with 4,997 flight hours on 574 flights.

Ed retired from the Air Force after 20 years of service.  He spent most of his Air Force years flying, as a computer technician, on board the E-3 AWACS aircraft based out of Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City.  

After retirement Ed obtained his real estate sales license and sold real estate in the Oklahoma City metro area.  He moved back to his hometown of Janesville in the Summer of 2010 and started school at Blackhawk Technical College, taking advantage of the GI Bill.  Ed graduated with a degree in Automated Systems Technology and a certificate in Industrial Maintenance.  

It was during that same time that Ed started out in pursuit of his Wisconsin real estate license. He obtained his Broker's license in May 2014.

Ed is very happy to have resumed his real estate career in his hometown of Janesville.
