Find a Great Local Fargo Moorhead Builder: Bob Pearson Eid-Co

Name: Bob Pearson
Business: Eid-Co Homes, a residential home building company
Hometown: Grand Forks, N.D.
Your first job was: As a courtesy boy and stockman at Red Owl in Grand Forks beginning in 1962. I ultimately became a store manager in West Fargo in 1970.
Favorite type of music: “Big Band” sounds of the 20’ through the early 50’s. Some country is OK also.
Professional training: On going education and training offered through the National Home Builders Association and through the National Association of Realtors.
Your favorite thing about building: Being instrumental in assisting young people/families in purchasing their first home. Knowing that in the majority of cases, homeownership has the greatest potential toward gaining long-term financial security for those acquiring their first home. My best
Did you or do you have a mentor? Morris Pyle got me started in Real Estate as a new home sales associate with Eid-Co Homes in 1974. At the time I remember thinking that I’m simply not the salesman type. Morris’ response was, “Approach selling real estate as being a problem solver. “You’
I ignite my sales by: Our furnished model homes and a state-of-the-art web site are very well received by our customers. We at Eid-Co Homes focus on providing homes that meet the needs of our customers and that represent an excellent value in the market place.
Your favorite fargo restaurant: The Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Ponderosa, as well as the cafĂ© in the Fargo Holiday Inn provide good value and consistent quality…one eating place would be boring.
When I cook at home I like to… grill a thick steak along with a salad and buttered French bread. A “plain old” hamburger hot dish also hits the spot a few times a month.
One thing every homebuyer should keep in mind when building a home: The most important thing is to explore the entire market in your price range so that you become an “informed” buyer. Many of the people that you may want toLink count on for advice have not been in the home market recently, and therefore, their advice may not be pertinent or accurate today. A great Realtor is priceless…ask acquaintances about their Realtor experiences…and choose the one you are most comfortable with.
Your favorite charity in fargo? and why: The Make-A –Wish Foundation. A young person hurting is such a difficult condition for me to accept. Therefore, if there is a way to lessen the pain and uncertainties these kids and their families are confronted with, it’s appropriate that we do something. They are entitled to a few hours or days of distraction and happiness.
