Edan built his bulldog work ethic young, beginning his career as a child film, tv, and voice actor in Hollywood in the 80s and 90s. You may remember him from any number of guest roles on hit sitcoms such as Cheers, Murphy Brown, The Golden Girls, Empty Nest, Newhart, Highway to Heaven, Married… with Children, Northern Exposure, and Herman’s Head. Or perhaps his iconic voice sent shivers down your spine when you heard him say, “Hi, I’m Chucky, wanna play?” in the “Child’s Play” horror series.
After attending UC Berkeley, Edan joined a global Fortune 500 company in their sales department and excelled immediately. His 18 years there was marked with numerous awards and national sales records as he advanced through every field position. The experience fine-tuned his direct sales, consultative sales, and overall leadership skills, resulting in a successful management tenure, including many years as a well-respected and highly sought-after consultant, sales manager, and franchise owner. In addition, he served on the Divisional Board as a Member and then as Vice President.
Edan’s interest in real estate began as a young professional when he was mentored by a successful investor and California property owner. He learned the basics and fundamentals of sound real estate investing and how to utilize proper strategies at different times in the market cycle. He continued his real estate education over the years by closely aligning with investors in the multifamily and commercial properties space, working to uncover opportunities not available on the open market.
Edan became an agent in 2017 when he began working with Justin White. He then joined Centennial Advisers as an Adviser, using his expertise and knowledge of the San Fernando Valley (where he grew up) and Los Angeles Markets to help clients maximize the performance of their assets and navigate through complex transactions and strategies with their investment portfolios. As Regional Vice President of Investments, Edan assists in the growth of Centennial’s Los Angeles market share through the recruitment of new agents, training and developing their brokering skills, and leading from the frontline, all skills he has mastered throughout his career.
