Joins team

Greg Erdie, associate broker and certified residential specialist, has recently joined the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office at their 65th Street, Ocean City location.

Erdie has 34 years of experience as a top producer in the Ocean Pines, Berlin and Bishopville markets as well as Ocean City.

Erdie was recruited in 2013 to manage the Coldwell Banker Salisbury office which he did for the past six years.

He decided to transition out of management and pursue his true passion of real estate sales back in the resort area.

Erdie is certified in Coldwell Banker’s luxury property marketing program, known as “Global Luxury.”

He specializes in marketing properties to assist sellers in obtaining the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time.

His “Listing Concierge” professional marketing program plus his vast experience of many additional marketing techniques has made Erdie, as he says, “A HousSold Name in Worcester County.”

A former elementary and special education teacher, Erdie moved to the area from West Virginia in 1982 when he married his wife, Paula, a native of Salisbury, to start his full-time real estate career.

The 2019 awards were drawn from flight students and pilots who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience this past summer through an online customer satisfaction survey. The process yielded an evaluation of 972 different flight schools and 1,876 individual flight instructors.
