Agent Ed Carp
Email: [email protected]
Ed moved to Washington from Long Island, NY in the summer of 1992 after accepting the position of Director of Development at Share Our Strength, a national hunger relief organization. Subsequently, he worked for or led several organizations including: Nurture: The Center to Prevent Childhood Malnutrition, The Kamber Group & The University of Maryland at College Park.
In 1997 Ed bought a 3,000 sq. ft. office space at the corner of Kalorama and Champlain Streets in Adams Morgan (just off 18th St.) He slowly turned the office space into a pretty cool, industrial loft type home and loved every minute of it. Buying and renovating that place changed Ed’s financial life, and he began talking various friends into buying real estate. In 2000, he quit his job at The University of Maryland, and went into real estate full time. His goal wasn’t just to become another real estate agent, but to be a resource for first-time buyers and take some of the fear out of buying a home.
Ed is extremely proud of the way he has developed his business. Ed has a very committed cadre of clients, many of whom refer him to their friends, eliminating the need to advertise for new clients. With a sincere respect for his clients, Ed tries to always be mindful of what a daunting process buying or selling a home can be. Ed feels very lucky to have found real estate as a career, and doesn’t take any of its benefits for granted. Ed says, “I truly like real estate – and I expect that’s why I do well at it”.
In his free time Ed loves to travel: the more exotic the place the better. He has been to Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Dubai, Istanbul, Bangkok, Singapore, India as well as many European countries. He has a friend that teaches at Oxford University, and finds himself traveling to England often, “I love everything British”. Still on his list of places to visit are Shanghai, Tokyo, Zanzibar and sail the Amazon. Most of Ed’s clients are a well-traveled group.
