Ed was a life saver!!! We were looking for a home near IMG In Bradenton, Florida and he was the only Realtor that returned our email by actually calling us to introduce himself. He went right to work personally touring properties for us since we were out of state. He found us a great place within 48 hours right at IMG's back gate. My son will be able to walk to his training! I couldn't be happier with the service I received from this Realtor. If you want a good guy that does business the old fashion (personable) way, Call Ed!
The Service Industry has surely changed. Ed has it all figured out. We met him by chance last Winter while looking for a condo near Bradenton Beach. He was one of many encounters as we have shopped all over the Island. Everyone says, they will follow up or send you information but he's the only one who did. Casually checking in periodically while sending us everything within our specifications the whole time, till I was ready & knew Exactly what I wanted. Even then, Ed had listened to us. I had my mind set on 1 property. He said but 1st, while we are here, take a look at this one. He was right. It was everything we wanted, furnished for 100,000.00 less. After making our offer we were relaxing on the beach with a cocktail. The phone rang. There was another offer on the table & 1 more document to seal the deal. Anyone else would have had us drive back to the office, email, scan or DocuSign. Not Ed. He drove to us. Then in under 24 hours we knew we won the bid on our new retirement condo. This will not be our last deal. Keep sending & we will keep shopping. Thanks for Everything!!!
Five star review. Ed was very helpful in our hunt for a home on Ana Maria Island. We met him at an open house and decided he would be a good person to help find us our condo. We would definitely use him again if we purchase more property. He was attentive to details and really went out of his way to make this a simple easy process. Tom Lopata
We enlisted Ed to find us a Condo unit to purchase on Anna Maria Island within very specific parameters. Ed was able to locate the property for us in less than 3 weeks and help us prepare a creative offer that the seller accepted. Because of Ed's knowledge and diligence, we are acquiring the property for a very fair price. Since we are buying remotely, Ed has been our eyes and ears. He has completed walk through live videos, coordinated inspections, managed furnishing removals, and many other services that normally would have been handled by us. He has offered to help us with many other tasks. He has been excellent to work with. Very responsive. We would highly recommend Ed to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, hardworking, extremely helpful realtor in the Bradenton Area.
Ed is a Dynamo. I received his info from a website, as I am an out of state buyer. He read me very well, encouraging me to consider properties I might not have seen before that matched my wishes better. As I had a limited time to search, he was very efficient. He even hooked me up with the necessary places to complete the purchase (abstract company) . Thank you!
Ed was very professional in handling all the details for me as I was in the process of selling my home in SC. It was a very easy transition knowing I had a competent realtor handling everything on this end.
I have known Ed Taaffe for over 25 years. Professionally, he is detail orientated, sales driven, consciousness, customer-centered, and a good marketer. His creative marketing concepts and his key eye for detail saved us all a lot of time and money. Ed will always do what is best for his customers which has brought him tremendous success in business. Personally, Ed is one of the most caring, honest, trustworthy individuals you will ever meet. He is a loving father of seven children, and yet, he has always also found time to help others. He coached hundreds of children in Little League baseball for 15 years in our community including some of my own children. Ed always brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to anything he does. I can’t think of a better real estate agent in Florida for you to work with. Steve George, CEO of MBF PrintGroup

If you want a true professional to help you find your dream home, call Ed Taaffe! Ed asks all the right questions to discover what is important to you in your home search and then relentlessly searches the local real estate market to find the best homes that meet or exceed your want list. He is honest, hardworking, knowledgeable, and you can tell that he really loves finding people their dream homes. I asked him to find me a home with an awesome water view that would have excellent sunsets and a boat dock that had access to the Gulf of Mexico. In less than 30 days, he found me the "Perfect House" that exceeded all of the criteria I gave him and he helped me negotiate an unbelievable deal that saved me thousands of dollars! Thanks to Ed, I now enjoy a glass of wine nightly while watching sensational sunsets that lookout at the Skyway Bridge to Tampa. On weekends, I travel out to remote islands in the Gulf of Mexico on my boat that is conveniently located on my dock that I can see from my porch. When I say knowledgeable, I found out that Ed used to be a mortgage lender, a real estate appraiser, and the CEO of a successful medical recruiting agency where he negotiated large dollar contracts for physicians. With the outstanding service that he provided me, Ed used all of his past professional skills to locate and close the deal for me on a truly spectacular water front home. I do not plan on ever moving from my home in paradise, but if I did, there is no other Realtor that I would choose to help me sell this home and find a new home than Ed Taaffe! 5 Star Review Sandy Moore
