Success - Customers Matter

I wish to relay the excellent service and advice I received from Realtor Doug Collins of EDI Real Estate Company. I purchased my home in 2008 with Doug as my primary agent. At the time, I was residing in Philadelphia, Pa., so I had limited mobility when I came in to town to look at homes. Doug was kind enough to pick me up at the Charlotte Airport several times and take me around Tega Cay. I knew Tega Cay was the right place for me, it's lovely! He, or his wife, Deborah, were always available and returned calls promptly. They are both a delight to work with! ... Dedicated professionals that do an excellent job promoting the property and getting buyers in the door. I will continue to recommend EDI to my all my friends....

"As a former tenant of EDI Real Estate I knew that when I needed a place to lease once again that they would be able to help me find a home. I used their Rental Assistance Program Search and was provided a list of homes that was specifically designed to meet my needs. These homes came directly from the Multiple Listing Service. I did find a home that I loved and Doug helped me through the application and leasing process. I would definitely recommend EDI Real Estate and their RAP Search program to anyone looking for a place to rent.... Darla Lilleberg (RAP Search)

"...I found your firm through an internet search. Read through many agent sites. Talked to some of them on the phone. Looking for the "fit," because even though this is just a rental, it is a big move for me. Why I chose you:  Read through EDI info and liked what I saw  Noticed photo of married couple in business together and figured you were stable & dependable  Talked to you on the phone and felt comfortable You followed up as promised   Thanks, Constance  .

 "Really goes the extra mile for its clients--or even its potential clients. EDI knew my husband was from the Pacific NW and was a little bit hesitant about retiring far away. The owner of the company wrote my husband the nicest e-mail; thanks to him, my husband is actually considering making a move. If you want personal service from an agent who truly cares about you as a person, you simply cannot do better than EDI." 

Our townhouse wasn't selling in this down market so we turned to EDI Real Estate to assist with finding a renter. From the outset they helped by finding multiple qualified renters and have continued to serve as ongoing property management for us.   When maintenance issues have come up in the rental EDI has been quick to offer suggestions for capable tradesmen to resolve the problems ? keeping our renters satisfied and saving us from the hit and miss process of choosing good servicemen. 

Selling Matters

"In these trying times selling your home can be very difficult. I have many friends who had to short sell their property just to get out from under the weight of the house that was worth less than what they owed on the home. I was lucky when I found Doug and Deborah with EDI Real Estate. They came up with the perfect plan to market and sell my home within two months of having the house on the market. We had a great offer and closed on the house. It really pays to pick the right real estate agent to represent you and Doug and Deborah did a great job. Thank you. Myles R."  

 "Working with EDI was the best home buying experience one could hope for. All of my expectations were exceeded. From the first conversation to signing the closing contracts, everything was perfect. Plus, I saved a lot of money with EDI. What more could one want? I will ALWAYS choose EDI for my Real Estate needs. You should too!" 

 "Our realtor shows it every chance they get and the advertising works because so many other realtors have shown it. It is a pleasure to do business with EDI!

Loyalty and Good Service

"Doug and EDI have managed my residential rental in Charlotte since I moved to Asheville and I give my highest recommendation. Terry"  

"Purchasing a home in this day and age can be very tricky and there are all sorts of roadblocks placed in your way. Doug and Deborah were able to help me navigate through the home buying process and buy a home that fit all my needs. Thank you for helping me purchase a wonderful home at a very reasonable price. “   

 "This is a comprehensive site that features any home for sale in the metropolitan Charlotte area including Tega Cay and Fort Mill. Very good information, easy to use and user friendly. The firm overall is exceptionally professional. I would trust any and all or my real estate needs to this firm."  


I am writing this to give a testimony on the customer service provided by EDI real estate brokers Deborah and Doug Collins. My husband and I chose EDI for a couple of reasons... first it was the time given to explain the process and secondly the feedback and time put forth to selling our home. We sold our home within the first month it was put on the market! If any issues arose my agent Doug Collins was ready to handle them with knowledge and solutions. I would recommend EDI Real Estate to anyone looking to sell their home. You will never be lost in the shuffle and they CARE about selling your home as much as you do. 

People are Our Business

Sincerely a wonderful community. I can wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone. Please feel free to call me anytime! Many thanks for allowing me the opportunity to share this information. Sincerely, Kirsten Parrish   

EDI and Doug Collins went above and beyond! An FHA appraiser refused to approve our home as FHA due to some exterior paint chipping. The seller was uncooperative and unwilling to solve the problem. Doug suggested we paint the exterior of the house ourselves! We removed the chipped paint and used his paint sprayer to fix the home to the appraisers liking. Thank you for all your hard work Doug.  We strongly recommend EDI! Larry Hoekstra II
