||A straight-shooting, no-nonsense New Yorker, Ed Thompson aims to get the job done.
During his business life, naturally Ed got involved in real estate. For several decades, he has been buying and selling, building, occupying, managing and renting residential and commercial properties and he has chaired a commercial condominium board. Ed has participated in all aspects of real estate transactions.
Ed comes to City Connections after a distinguished career as a multi-faceted entrepreneur. Ed is the founder and president of Forox Corporation, which designed and manufactured high-end 35mm cameras—$50,000 an up—for the audiovisual trade. Ed has traveled the world, attending trade shows, selling product and for pleasure.
Ed's joy now is in using his experience for clients seeking to buy or sell a home. He understands the weight and importance of the home sales decision, he considers his clients' needs and desires and makes them his number one priority. Whether buying or selling a property, Ed's clients always comment on his knowledge of real estate, his professionalism and his clear and concise guidance through the sales process.
Honesty is the best policy. Mutual respect is the basis for a successful relationship. Ed is an advocate of the trader principle: value for value—win-win. Let's make your search an adventure; let's have some fun. When conflicts arise, he has that special ability to diplomatically and creatively resolve the issue, assuring a mutually satisfactory conclusion for buyers and sellers.
Ed lives in the prestigious Corinthian Condominiums in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan. He loves New York City and has an intimate knowledge of many of its diverse neighborhoods.
Ed is an avid sailor, of late out of Newport Rhode Island. He is also a licensed, instrument rated private pilot.
