Edward S. Ecker, local real estate investor and owner of Simple Sailing Charters, is pleased to announce that he has joined the Remax Team as a sales associate. This new venture will allow him to be involved in a number of exciting new projects in the St. Petersburg area.
Ed Ecker has been an entrepreneur his whole life, and has deep roots in the St. Petersburg area. His first business ventures were in office equipment sales and service, and he founded, grew, and sold two separate businesses in that field. (The first was Carousel Computer Solutions, an Atlanta-based firm with offices throughout the South, including West Palm Beach, FL. The second was Tereck Office Solutions, a North Carolina-based company with offices throughout the Southeast, including a sales and service office located in St. Petersburg for 14 years.) During this time he also was involved in a number of residential and commercial real estate development projects in GA, NC and FL.
Given his extensive experience sailing in Tampa Bay and on the Gulf Coast, St. Petersburg was his first choice for a new home after the sale of Tereck in 2010. Since moving to St. Petersburg, he has made substantial investments in the area, both in Simple Sailing Charters and Sales and in Ecker Properties, LLC. He continues to be active in community and philanthropic events, and is a member of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.
Ed has invested in multiple residential and commercial properties throughout the St Petersburg area, including single-family, townhouse/condominium, and multi-family residential properties, ranging from golf communities to downtown properties to waterfront communities on the Gulf. He plans to continue to focus on real estate in the area, both by helping his clients find the perfect properties for their needs and through investments of his own.
