JB Edwards has a comprehensive knowledge of the Florida real estate market which comes from being a fifth generation Floridian. Real estate brokerage and investment are a natural fit for him, given his business experience and the fact that his mother has 35 years in the industry as a top-producing agent, broker and coach. Florida has always been home base for JB though his father is a career United States Air Force officer (ret.) and his family was stationed accordingly. JB gets his business acumen from working in his family's advertising company, EIG Inc., until the company's sale in 1997. That same year, he became a member of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and traded index futures until 2003.
JB’s analytical skills are extremely helpful to buyers and sellers alike. Since becoming licensed in 2005, he has developed a comprehensive knowledge of Palm Beach island inventory and pricing of single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and commercial properties from the inlet to well south of Sloan's Curve. He is prepared to bring all of the local knowledge and global reach resources that the Sotheby's International Realty brand has to offer to a client's needs, whether buyer or seller.
JB is an active member of the Palm Beach community, including the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church Palm Beach, and is active in a number of outreach programs including the True Fund, St George’s Center, Empty Bowl 2014 and 2015. He is currently a member of the St George’s Center Board of Directors and enjoys membership in the Kravis Center of the Performing Arts, Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach, Norton Museum of Art and the Society of the Four Arts Contemporaries. This community involvement serves as a foundation of knowledge that is passed along to clients new to Palm Beach and all that it has to offer.
JB is a licensed Broker Associate and has completed the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) coursework on topics from marketing and servicing listed properties to real estate law.
