Ed Reams, Owner/Broker of Advantage Chatuge Realty, guides his clients through a real estate landscape littered with potential land mines. After thirty years in the advertising agency business, and twelve years practicing real estate – and with the scar tissue to prove it – Reams shares his knowledge and insight into where to focus your attention when buying or selling property. “Purchasing real estate is very different from purchasing a car,” according to Reams. “The investment is generally much greater, and the decision-making process should heavily favor the ‘intellectual’ rather than the ‘emotional’.”
Investor Warren Buffett, the multi-billionaire “Oracle of Omaha” has said that, “Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing” – a sentiment which Reams wholeheartedly endorses. Real Estate investing has translated Buffett’s comments thusly: “Those who don’t know how to properly analyze, enter, and exit real estate transactions think today’s market is risky. Those who fully understand the intricacies of creative real estate investing continue to participate and profit.”
Ed Reams specializes in assisting buyers and sellers of real estate in the mountain/lakes region of western North Carolina and northeast Georgia. His considerable hands-on expertise as the Owner/Broker of Advantage Chatuge Realty, combined with his prior corporate experience at advertising giant J. Walter Thompson, makes him uniquely qualified to research, recommend and advise his clients on all aspects of the local real estate market.
Clients Karen and Mike Straub stated, “We have looked for property in the North Georgia/North Carolina area for the last several years. When we asked an owner of a cabin we had rented for her suggestion of a realtor; someone we could trust and feel comfortable with, she instantly mentioned Ed Reams. After just one call, we were hooked! Ed went out of his way to make our buying experience just that – an experience. Ed has provided us with local information, and the do’s and don’ts for buying property/homes. He met each of our questions with answers which have helped us to make wise decisions. We thoroughly enjoyed our search for our dream mountain home because Ed helped to take away the anxieties of the search. We are thrilled with our home and have reached out to Ed again for assistance in acquiring some raw land (a new term we just learned from Ed). Now we own the top of a mountain.”
Jody Crocker had this to say about Ed, “My husband and I had our house listed with Ed during the real estate slump. Over the course of our lives, my husband and I have dealt with numerous real estate agents and Ed is by far the best. You can’t go wrong working with him.” Client Dee Beckstrom added, “What Ed showed us initially wasn’t going to work because we couldn’t have very many stairs. Once we fully explained what we needed, Ed took us to the perfect place at the right price. We put money down that very hour.”
