     Edward was a true joy to work with! He worked incredibly hard for me, and was very patient, professional, and organized throughout the whole process. He took in my search parameters, and was very thoughtful and creative in presenting potential homes for me to consider. Edward has a great interior design eye, so when looking at homes together, he was very helpful in thinking through potential uses for a given space or how a room might be utilized to fit my needs. I felt very well taken care of with Edward’s customer service. I highly recommend him!

    Ed was extremely hands-on throughout the entire process and did an amazing job. He was patient and generous with his time and made himself available around the clock as needed. We faced some very specific hurdles that could have blocked us from getting the place we really wanted and he went above and beyond to problem-solve for us. We absolutely recommend him for anyone looking for an agent.

    My husband and I recently left our long-time home in Greenville, SC to put down roots near family and a new grandchild in DC. Edward Heid of Long & Foster helped guide our journey both as a competent agent, as well as a delightful companion. In the initial phase of touring properties, Edward was patient, knowledgeable, and always going the extra mile to research & provide additional information to help provide context for our consideration. Both Edward and his partner Deborah Cheshire were always quick to respond to questions, give advice based on long experience, or provide local service providers as required. For example, they provided insightful perspective on the general inspection report and organized additional roofing inspection and a repair bid to adjust our contract price accordingly.. Edward provided help and support throughout our process, which fell in the midst of the 2020 Covid 19 pandemic, including new owner’s walkthrough (we were selling our property in SC), lining up and working with our mortgage lender, as well as providing the closing attorney. He and Deboral even surprised us at the end of the closing meeting (all of us in masks, of course!) with a bottle of champagne, having travelled considerable distance to wish us well in our new home. At each stage of finding and settling into our new nest outside Warrenton, VA, Edward time and time again patiently and pleasantly smoothed our way, helping to make this transition as easy as possible.
