At Edge, a low client to advisor ratio allows for personal and customized service for each individual.  Our goal is to work as a team for each client to provide not only portfolio management but wealth coordination and financial planning.  We make every effort to have frequent communication with our clients and to provide timely response to calls and emails.  I also enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids, playing and following basketball, playing golf, and participating as an advisory board member for Breakthrough Urban Ministries.

New Home Sales Rose in April

Sales of new homes rose in April

Sales of new single-family homes rose 7.3 percent to 323,000 in April, exceeding expectations the market would remain flat, the U.S. Census Bureau reported today.

Low interest rates, discounted prices and an improving job market are driving the increase, but sales remain more than 23 percent below the 420,000 new homes sold in April 2010.

The median sales price of new houses sold in April 2011 was $217,900.
