Donald B. Edwards, Jr. has been a commercial Realtor since 1984, enjoying a varied career in real estate brokerage, development and construction. My first transaction was a industrial lease for a Canadian firm, which hooked me on commercial real estate. During this period, I did franchise site selection, zoning, assemblages, sales, leasing and 1031 exchanges, enjoying a term as president of the Association of Georgia Real Estate Exchangers, and earning many commercial and residential designations in the Century 21 system. In the lat '80s and early '90s, I was involved in trust real estate with Trust Company Bank and SouthTrust, where I was Vice President/Manager of the trust real estate department. While in this position, I managed a wide variety of asets including industrial, retail, office, multifamily, residential, land, farms, timber and mining properties. Other duties included asset management, leasing, acquisitions, disposals, insurance, taxes, trust real estate division management and property inspections. I also became a CCIM Candidate. In the mid '90s I left trust real estate to pursue a dream of developing and building commercial and residential properties in the north Georgia mountains as well as continuing my brokerage activities. I am now doing commercial real estate as a Associate Broker and KW Commercial Director affiliated with Keller Williams Signature Partners, resuming my passion for commercial sales, leasing, exchanges and development. In addition, I am serving as the current president of AGREE, the Association of Georgia Real Estate Exchangers.
