ED SHERMAN REALTY
I moved from Illinois to DeLand, Florida in 1977. I acquired my real estate license in 1979 and have been selling real estate in the DeLand and West Volusia area ever since. I am a member of the West Volusia Association of Realtors and received the Realtor Associate of the Year award in 1985. I was a charter member of the Realtors Honor Society and have been an officer and board member of our association. I currently serve on the Professional Standards Committee.
I received the Humanitarian of the Year Award for 2013 from the West Volusia Board of Realtors and was again inducted into the West Volusia Association of Realtors Honor Society.
My husband Ed and I are very involved with the West Volusia Audubon Society. Currently I am president. We are also members of the Museum of Art DeLand. I am also on the board of MainStreet DeLand and have photographs featured in their Art Expose program of photos in windows downtown. I enjoy volunteering at community events like the DeLand Fall Festival of the Arts & the Wounded Warrior Project. Photography and bird watching are my favorite hobbies. I also enjoy giving presentations of my bird photography to local groups in the community to help promote conservation.
I have three grown children and four grandchildren. One Daughter and Granddaughter live in DeLand. The rest live out of state, in Ohio & Washington. We enjoy visiting them when we can.
I really enjoy meeting new people and real estate offers me that opportunity. Over the years I have made many new friends while showing them property. I like the challenge of finding the right home for people and seeing them years later still happy with their choice. It is also rewarding to assist past clients with their new housing needs. I have been involved in home sales, new construction, land and commercial sales. Please feel free to call me with any questions regarding buying or selling property. I will be glad to assist you.

I moved from Illinois in 1977. Arnette and I met in Illinois, but were married in Florida after we moved. We made our first money here by buying, repairing and reselling houses. We both obtained our real estate licenses in 1979 and opened our own office a year later when I passed the broker's test. After a number of years, I became more interested in other things, so we closed our office and I bought a portable sawmill which I ran for 14 years. A few more years sharpening sawmill blades and then a total hip replacement brings me back full circle to real estate.
As all of this was going on, computers completely changed how real estate was bought and sold. I bought Arnette a computer knowing absolutely nothing about them. Because I have always wanted to know how everything works, I began acquiring broken computers, learning how to test parts, and reassembling them as working units. I took a number of classes at the local community college to get more answers and I now build and repair the computers and the network in our home office and am the webmaster for www.edshermanrealty.com and formerly www.westvolusiaaudubon.org.
Through the years my interests and hobbies have always centered on making things work. I built the house we live in and am capable of repairing almost everything in it. I understand good construction and how things can be improved.
Even though I wandered off somewhat, I was never really very far from real estate. I have been assisting Arnette with her real estate sales from the very beginning.
