With over 12 years of experience in both the real estate and finance sectors, Ed Roberson’s career includes an extensive background in western ranch brokerage, commercial brokerage, and development. Since moving to the Rockies in 2005, Ed’s personal passion for responsible land stewardship and his deep professional knowledge of ranch brokerage have allowed him to successfully broker the sale of recreational, conservation, and legacy ranches throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho.
Originally from North Carolina, Ed worked as a commercial broker with NAI, specializing in office and flex properties in Raleigh-Durham’s Research Triangle Park. He was also part of the development division of Boston Properties, a publicly traded real estate investment trust. Early in his career, Ed was a financial advisor for both Merrill Lynch and UBS, where he provided comprehensive investment management services to affluent individuals, small businesses, and non-profit organizations.
M.B.A. in Finance from Wake Forest University (Bern Beatty Full-Tuition Scholarship)
Ed’s passion for western landscapes is a direct result of his love of outdoor recreation in wild places. He is a graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School and an experienced mountaineer, having reached the summits of Alaska’s Mt. McKinley (20,320 ft.) and Argentina’s Aconcagua (22,840 ft). In 2007, he climbed 30 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains in 46 days as a fundraiser for cancer research. He is also an avid runner and has completed several 50-mile trail ultra-marathons in the Colorado mountains.
