Edward has been around land deals for as long as he can remember. Edward was born an “Airforce brat” on Johnson AFB in Japan, was brought to the USA at 6 months of age and his family settled in NW Oklahoma for his early years where his Grandfather owned the local Title Company and partnered with his father in acquiring mineral interest and oil and gas leases. Edward’s family moved to Tyler, Texas, in 1973 when his father took a job with Millican Oil Company, and Edward has called Tyler his home from then until today, except for a few years in Beaumont and for the 7 years in the DFW area prior to returning to Tyler in 2008. Edward, his wife Ginger, 3 of their 4 children and 6 of their 8 grandchildren all call the Tyler area home. Edward has been employed as a petroleum landman since 1996 and has worked with Petro-Land Group, Inc., of Tyler, for the past 24 years and is presently on of their Project Managers. Prior to becoming a landman, Edward worked in many industries including welding, painting, home remodeling, roofing and is a State Farm trained Catastrophic Claims Insurance Adjuster; but his passion has been in working with homes and land, and Edward has just recently obtained his license as a Real Estate Agent. Edward now works with our team at Dwell, alongside Ginger, and is enjoying being able to help the team in understanding how mineral rights pertain to the properties owned by our sellers or those in which our buyers have an interest. Edward enjoys being with family, cooking, spending time outdoors, and attending his grandchildren’s sporting events. Edward has been helping Ginger with her land deals for several years now and is looking forward to helping his clients who are considering selling or buying a home or land. Edward has found that both a buyer and a seller can maximize the outcome of buying or selling land when they actually know if the mineral rights are still connected to the surface of the land. Please call or text Edward today for a market evaluation of your home or land, or for a list of properties he can show you that fit your criteria. Edward is ready to meet with you, to understand your needs and desires, and to help you as a buyer or a seller!
