The Ed Acevedo Group
Hello! We would like to take a moment and tell you a bit about ourselves!
Meet Ed Acevedo!
I was a flight attendant for 28 years with a major airline. I have a slight problem - I can't sit still - I had a flexible schedule and was able to delve into some very profitable side ventures. I have worked as an investment consultant, loan officer, prepared income taxes, and had my own home remodeling business. All of these were stepping stones that lead me to my passion - real estate! I was injured on the job as a flight attendant and had to take time off to recover. In 2009 a long time friend had just started in real estate and convinced me to join him - what started out as a part time job turned into a life long career.
I love and live my job! I am very technology minded so as long as I have my phone and a lap top I can do my job just about anywhere - and I do! Keller Williams is very technology forward and was a perfect fit.
What excites you about your work? I love the art of the deal! Negotiations, the back and forth sometimes nail biting deals - Getting my client the best deal - I live for that.
Where can we find you when you are not working? Not working? I don't understand the question - if I am sitting in a restaurant, with the neighbors, my daughters - I am always networking - you never know who needs real estate help.
What is you favorite room in the house? The kitchen - I don't cook I create! Nothing is better than sitting down over a good meal and catching up with people.
What do you do in your spare time? I like to play golf, Philadlephia sports - Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, taking my 3 dogs to the dog park, traveling.
Five things I cannot live without: My wife, my daughters, my dogs, coffee, sports.
Meet Celeste Acevedo!
I was a flight attendant for 17 years and held a couple of outside sales positions when one of my best friends was hired as the Team Leader of Keller Williams. She said I would be perfect for the Market Center Administrator’s position and hired me. I was the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer for an up and coming Market Center. I was in charge of the daily running of the office, the finances (the agents loved me – I paid them!), and the keeper of the files – you name it, I did it! My favorite part of the job was helping agents get through their transactions smoothly – I did whatever I could to make the office a place where they could get what the needed – a hug or even a kick in the pants!
In 2011 I felt I needed a change, got my licenses and joined my husband who is a Realtor! I am licensed in Delaware Maryland and Pennsylvania – I love helping people turn their dreams into an address!
What excites you about your work? I get excited when I can watch clients eyes light up when they walk into a house – you know they are “home”!
Where can we find you are not working? I usually most evenings are spent on my front lawn! After work all my neighbors and I sit out front with a beverage and let their kids play until its time for dinner or bed – it’s a great way to catch up!
What is your favorite room in the house? The kitchen – everyone who visits ends up in my kitchen – I love to cook and sharing food with family, friends, and clients is the best way to get to know one another!
What do you love to do in your spare time? I love to read – like really read – like 1 or 2 books a week! And I sew – clothing, quilts – my friends always are asking me to whip up something, I have even started to sell the things I make!
Five things I cannot live without: My husband, my dogs, books, leggings, and lip balm.
