About Ed Carp

Senior Associate

Picture of Ed Carp

I moved to Washington from Long Island, NY in the summer of 1992 after I accepted the position of Director of Development at Share Our Strength, a national hunger relief organization. I worked for or lead several organizations over the next eight years including: Nurture: The Center to Prevent Childhood Malnutrition, The Kamber Group & The University of Maryland at College Park.

In 1997 I bought a 3,000 sq. ft. office space at the corner of Kalorama and Champlain Streets in Adams Morgan (just off 18th St.) I slowly turned the office space into a pretty cool, industrial loft type home. I loved every minute of it. Buying and renovating that place changed my financial life, and I began talking various friends into buying real estate. In 2000 I quit my job at The University of Maryland, and went into real estate. My goal wasn’t just to become another real estate agent, but to be a resource for first-time buyers and take some of the fear out of buying a home.

I am extremely proud of the way I’ve developed my business. I have a very committed cadre of clients, all of who refer me to their friends. I do not advertise for new clients. I have a sincere respect for my clients, and try to always be mindful of what a daunting process buying or selling a home can be. I feel very lucky to have found real estate as a career, and don’t take any of its benefits for granted. I truly like real estate – and I expect that’s why I do well at it.

In my free time I love to travel: the more exotic the place the better. I’ve been to Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Dubai, Istanbul, Bangkok, as well as many European countries. I have a friend that teaches at Oxford University, and travel to England often, as I love everything British. In the future I hope to visit Shanghai, Zanzibar and sail the Amazon. Most of my clients are a well-traveled group.

Ed was an AMAZING agent and I walk around DC calling him the "best agent in the city" for a reason. This was my first home-buying experience and, while I am knowledgeable and strong-willed, Ed still taught me a lot and took me VERY smoothly through the… (more)


Ed was patient, meticulous, and knowledgeable. He’s both a good listener and willing to share his expertise. My home buying experience was a positive one, and a lot of fun!

Ed is great! I never thought I would stay in touch with my realtor for so long after I purchased my house. I talk/email with Ed at least a few times a year and he always gives me great advice about contractors, house projects and sometimes even life. He is a… (more)
