I met Ed Kinkopf when I saw a sign on a duplex and wanted to look at it inside and needed a realtor asap. Ed was quick to get to the property and show me inside. We put in an offer and lost it to a cash offer. I explained to Ed exactly what type of investment property I wanted to acquire he said we'll find it! I came about the Shorewalk community and we submitted three different offers on three different properties and lost them all to cash offers. I was a bit down and was ready to give up as I was financing. Ed said "Angie don't give up on Shorewalk we'll get one!" I'm very happy to say that we didn't give up! And now I own a piece of paradise. Forward three months later I wanted one more investment property and Ed made that possible he showed me a duplex and we closed on it with tenants in place. Ed is a pleasure to work with answered all my questions is very responsive and quick to get back to me. Thank you for making dreams come true in owning a piece of paradise
Just so you all know, Ed Kinkopf was our realtor. He diligently helped us find our dream home. He made us feel like we were his only clients. We almost bought a house for the sake of buying and he talked us out of it. He pointed out that it didn't hit all of our criteria. He couldn't have been more right because within the next week our dream home was on the market. He facilitated our sale beautifully. He is an artful negotiator. As this is our forever home we won't be in need of his realtor abilities but we did need an appliance repairman and Ed had a friend of his at the house the same day!!!! He's brilliant !!! My husband and I highly recommend Ed Kinkopf we know you won't be disappointed. Ed is a 5 Star ⭐️ Realtor
Ed was extremely helpful and professional. My house sold quickly and everything went smoothly, thanks to Ed. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a realtor.
Ed did a great job for us. He knows his market very well. I would highly recommend him to anyone selling or buying a house. Michael Watson
Ed and Casey- what a team! They work tirelessly to make the whole experience of selling your house as pleasurable as possible.

Ed is extremely knowledgable and finds a way to overcome problems. Ed and Casey are true professionals. Mick and Carol Manders

Wow, we can't believe you got our office building on Manatee Avenue sold in 2 hours! Thanks for a fast smooth closing!!
Ed and Casey were great. I'm a first time home buyer and they made the process so smooth. Their experience really shows. They were kind, didn't try to upsell and I felt confident and comfortable that I could trust them to make decisions in my best interest.
Ed, by far, is the most professional and knowledgeable realtor we have ever met. His patience and.willingness to help us with every step in buying and selling our homes. We enjoyed working with him. Absolutely the best !
What great things can I say about Ed! His professionalism and drive to help are second to none! He makes himself available to you whenever you may need him or have questions and concerns. His knowledge of the real estate business knows no bounds. I would recommend to anyone that they work with Ed. Undoubtedly best realtor I've ever worked with!
A visit to the Keys during Covid & a lucky chance meeting Ed, led us to buying our vacation home in Florida. Ed was always ready to show us houses & research everything we needed to know. He was extremely patient, knowledgeable & so easy to work with. We’ve become fast friends! He made a long bumpy process fun & would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Ed Kinkopf is recognized as a Top Producing Agent at Wagner Realty awarded with the Chairman's Circle Award. Contact Ed when you have a home to sell or looking to buy! He's the BEST!
Ed is a true professional and makes the real estate transaction easy and streamlined....which in todays markets can be anything but. Highly recommended.
Ed Kinkopf went above in beyond in getting our home sold. He was very responsive and always on top of what needed to be done. And he always has a positive attitude. We will definitely be asking Ed to help us again!
I’m often caught complaining about real estate agents and all of the disclaimers I have to sign absolving them of any duty and responsibility. So why do I need one? In years gone by, I counted on my agent to make sure that there were no hidden pieces of information I may need to know. Or do some research to help clarify all my questions. It is not like that anymore. That reduces my need for an agent to just getting me into a property. With an inspection and an attorney I’m good to go for a fraction of the price. But you... are all over it. Making sure we understood what was in the contract, asking questions about what we wanted added to the contract. Giving suggestions. Talking about the area and those selling best or similar properties meeting our need, etc. best part was following up on everything as we prepared for closing. Making sure we hit all of our dates. So you sir.... still provide that good old fashion service. You are at the top of the list. And you being funny and putting up with my yakking, know it all attitude, and sense of humor, is icing on the cake. Eddie Kinkopf, friendliest agent providing good old fashioned service.
Ed Kinkopf makes the journey of homeownership painless and honestly enjoyable. He takes his time to understand the buyers needs and wants to fine tune the search to make for an overall rewarding experience. Can’t say enough of how humble and kind hearted he is when it come to his clients and getting them into their forever home. Thank you so much Ed for all you do.
Best realtor we’ve ever worked with. Ed overcame some unpleasant surprises we encountered during our purchase. He is a true professional and works hard to put a deal together and works hard to keep it together.
Best agent we’ve ever worked with. Our purchase hit some bad bumps in the road and Ed got them all resolved to our satisfaction. He works very hard and gets results. You won’t be disappointed.
Buying from out of state especially during this time with the pandemic I was a little apprehensive... but working with Ed he made it very pleasurable. He was easy to reach and he was always very helpful. He's #1 in my book. If I need anything again in the future , he'll be the first call!!
Thanks to Ed, our experience with Wagner Realty, both as buyers and sellers, was exceptional. He is knowledgeable, resourceful, professional, personable, and responsive. We could not be more impressed!
I am a first time home buyer. Ed is absolutely a wonderful agent! He was on top of any questions or concerns I had and made it a very easy experience. I highly recommend him for buying or selling. Thank you Ed! You are a keeper!
Thank you so much for your guidance through this process of buying and selling. Terri and I feel like we struck gold when we met you at the first home we viewed. Thank you so much and have a good weekend
Ed Kinkopf was the best Realtor we have ever worked with, navigating the complicated waters of purchasing a for sale by owner home and answering any and all questions we had. When we are ready to sell and find our next home we already know who will be our first call!
Ed held several open houses for my home in Parrish and worked hard to get it sold. Then he took me six times up to St Pete to help me find a condo. He even helped me move a sofa with his truck. He also assisted with recommendations for lenders and movers etc. He was more like family than an agent.
A simple thank you doesn't seem adequate. We absolutely love our new home, and we want to let you know we sincerely appreciate your patience and time invested in helping us find the perfect home not only for us but our rescue dogs as well. I know working with out of state clients bring some challenges and we are very grateful that you persevered and didn't give up on us. You went above and beyond what the average realtor would do and that's what makes you a five star real estate agent. Thank you Ed Mark & Susan
Hi Ed, You're doing great work and other agents are talking about it.... "Ed was wonderful to work with! He was always on top of the details and looked out for his client. I'm happy to work with him again!" -Dave Ranck, Realtor, Keller Williams Classic
Ed went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. We needed a home fast, and the home we eventually moved into required us to act quickly as well and Ed worked tirelessly to make it happen. Even though he has many clients and a busy personal/family life, he still managed to make us feel like we were his top priority at all times. I'm incredibly grateful that Ed was recommended to us and we would recommend him to anyone who needs help buying or selling their Home! Thank you again Ed.
Ed was GREAT to deal with! He listened to what we wanted and went above and beyond to help us find the RIGHT home! We greatly appreciate his help. Our title /closing agent Katie, was also wonderful and our closing went very smoothly!
I'm not surprised Ed won the 2018 People's Choice Award for Favorite Real Estate Agent. He is easy to get a hold of and does what he says he'll do! He found a buyer for my property quickly and stayed on top of all the closing details. We closed on time and I couldn't be happier. I will recommend him to everyone!! Thanks Ed! PS I heard you just won again for 2019. Congratulations!
Ed is GREAT! He communicated well with us. He kept us posted on showings and the feedback. He went above and beyond fixing the "little things" and kept on top of the property. I would recommend Ed to anyone!
We feel so very fortunate that Ed was our Realtor. He is not only knowledgeable in LOCATION, but he is an amazing communicator. Ed was always prompt in replying to our numerous phone calls and requests. It was such a pleasure going through this process with him. Ed is pleasant and patient and is open and honest when giving advice. Ed really came through for us with additional recommendations for completing the purchase of our condo. We HIGHLY recommend Ed Kinkopf.
Dear Ed, It was truly a pleasure to work with you as I set out to sell my home in Parrish and purchase a new condo in St. Petersburg. You were always there to show me all the various options and gave me some valuable advice about inspectors, movers and location along with value for the money. Although I hope my personal real estate needs are behind me for some time, I know others will also benefit from your personal expertise and kind nature to make their experience more enjoyable and successful. Thanks for being there in my time of need in this area. And congratulations on winning the People's Choice Award for FAVORITE REAL ESTATE AGENT for 2018 & 2019!!! Sincerely, Brian Cormier
Ed is a wonderful caring realtor! He was very patient and helpful as we searched for a condo for our daughter. We had closing and our daughter is moved in. We will give him a 10 out of 10!
Ed goes above and beyond for his clients and friends!
"Ed Kinkopf is simply the realtor you wish for. I live in California and needed a lot of help, to say the least, to prep the house for sale. Ed was instrumental regarding the disposal of any remaining items, including donations. He literally rolled up his sleeves and was there when I needed him. He knows exactly what buyers in the area are looking for and pointed out all the issues that needed to be fixed before the sale. I had to leave the state and left everything in Ed's hands, which would scare anyone. Ed knew who he could trust to fix what was needed at a fair price. He was in constant contact with me regarding the status and his office was very helpful as well. Ed knew what range to price the house and what changes needed to be made when needed. He made a very diffciult situation run very smoothly. If you need a realtor who cares about his community, look no further than Ed Kinkopf."
We were ready to leave town and saw a house we were interested in at the last second. We’ve never even met Ed but got his name from a home listed near our rental. He had personal plans that day but still went out of his way to give us information, answer questions and even follow up with us. Courteous, knowledgeable, and very professional...And that’s with someone who’s not even one of his clients!
Ed is the best realtor out there! Very friendly and knows how to negotiate in a tough market situation!
Ed was such a pleasure to work with while we were looking for a home. He kept in contact with us every week. He is so easy to work with. We couldn't have chosen a better agent!!
Very good. He's very experienced and guided us with suggestions until completion. Kept us updated during selling process. Even had been in contact with Ed for a few years as we were preparing to sell. A+
Pleasure to work with, both with helping me find a condo and selling my house - great job
Ed worked with me for a long time and did not abandon me until I found the exact property. Highly professional and knowledgeable.
Ed went above and beyond to make the deal go through.
Ed was very knowledgeable and very helpful in the sale of my dad's home. We would most definitely recommend Ed to our family and friends.
Awesome - Ed handled the sale of our house & condo, so professional, quickly & helpful in so many ways - we had nothing to worry about.
Ed is a pleasure to work with and was on the ball with sending me a listing as soon as it came on the market and I bought it right away. Bradenton, FL
