Ed graduated from a Military High School and then attended the University of Arizona, in Tucson, AZ where he received his BS degree. His first taste of the Real Estate business was after college with his partner Dave Fraker.  For a decade, Ed and business partner, Dave were quite successful developing and building “Finisterra”, a 356-acre luxury home community.  Ed has maintained friendships and still visits many clients he sold homes to who live in the community. When that building project was completed, and wanting to be closer to his mother who was in failing health, Ed moved back East where he purchased a Chevrolet dealership adding Mitsubishi to the mix.  After successfully turning the dealership around, Ed partnered with a Cadillac Oldsmobile dealer & put Chevrolet, Cadillac and Oldsmobile under one roof.  One of Ed’s fondest memories in the automobile business was earning business from his football heroes, the Pittsburgh Steelers as clients.  Ed eventually sold his dealership to his partner to become the CEO of a children’s home who cared for abused and neglected children. He had an opportunity to move back to Arizona and he got into the Real Estate business in Sedona with Roy Grimm’s “Buyer Brokers”, exclusively working with buyers at the time and within his first year in real estate in Sedona, became an elite member of the Top 20 Producers’ club!  Ed was regretfully turning away many clients working exclusively as a buyer’s agent.  Ed recognized the benefits of having a well-rounded career working for buyers and sellers and partnered with Russ Lyon | Sotheby’s International Realty brokerage in Sedona.

K. Mark:  Ed and Jeanette are the BEST realtors in Sedona! My experience from start to finish was incredibly easy, efficient and pleasurable. I walked into the process with specific desires and Ed and Jeanette both tirelessly met me with patience and an invaluable knowledge of the Sedona market. They tookcare of EVERYTHING and reminded me of every appointment and walked me through the entire purchasing process to ensure I was taken care of. They are a dynamic team and each provide very valuable assets to assist the buyer in making the best possible decision. It’s really apparent that they deeply love what they do and extend that to their clients. I am so incredibly grateful for their guidance and expertise.

J. Hendler:  Ed and Jeanette represented the seller of a spec home under construction that we purchased way before completion, making several changes. We were out-of-town and couldn’t be there on a daily basis. Ed WAS there, and acted as intermediary between the seller and us. He answered our emails and phone calls immediately. He told us what was going on and acted as our advisor. If it wasn’t for him, the deal would never have gone through because the builder worked for the seller. We can’t say enough about him, and he and Jeanette have now become good friends!


T.Green:  Ed and Jeanette are an amazing team! Highly professional, hardworking, ethical and they truly care about their clients. I have used them on numerous properties and I am never disappointed. I have had mediocre service with other agents and would say with 100% confidence that they are the best in town. If you want agents who will work hard and actively market your property not just list it, then I suggest you contact them!

L. Alia:  I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are to have met Jeanette Sauer and Ed Pennington. From our first conversation to the close of our home, the entire process was easier than deciding what to make for dinner…and I’m not exaggerating. We found Jeanette through a referral (Thank you, Todd!), and when I looked at her and Ed’s listings I wasn’t sure they would be interested in listing our little place (under $500K). Boy was I wrong! Jeanette didn’t skimp on anything, from the professional photographer, marketing materials, and most importantly her excellent service–it was all top notch. She was getting calls on our place before it was officially on the market because of her dedication to us. I could go on and on about the quality of service Jeanette provided, but why don’t you just find out for yourself! I promise she will not disappoint!

You can count on Ed & Jeanette’s Team to help you make well-informed, financially rewarding and timely decisions. He is committed to finding the right property for you or selling your property at the right price.
