About Don Edwards

Don Edwards
Commercial Agent

Since 1984, Don has enjoyed a varied career in real estate, development and construction. His first transaction was a industrial lease for a Canadian firm, which hooked him on commercial real estate. During this period, he did franchise site selection, zoning, assemblages, sales, leasing and 1031 exchanges, enjoying a term as president of the Association of Georgia Real Estate Exchangors, and earning many commercial and residential designations in the Century 21 system. In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Don was involved in trust real estate with Trust Company Bank and SouthTrust, where he was the Vice President/Manager of the trust real estate department. While in this position, he managed a wide variety of assets including industrial, retail, office, multifamily, residential, land, farms, timber and mining properties. Other duties included asset management, leasing, acquisitions, disposals, insurance, taxes, division management and property inspections. He also became a CCIM candidate. In the mid ’90s, Don left banking to pursue a dream of developing and building commercial and residential properties in the north Georgia mountains. He is now affiliated with Keller Williams Realty Signature Partners as a Associate Broker and KW Commercial Director, resuming his passion for commercial sales, leasing, exchanges and development, and is the current president of the Georgia chapter of AGREE.
