Ed Hillis

  • Highlands Cove Realty is a second career for Ed. For 36 years he was a General Manager at Crown Automotive, with a focus on customer relationships. After living in the Highlands/Cashiers region part-time since 2003, he finally “retired” here in 2009 and fell in love with the area and the Old Edwards Club community. When he discovered real estate brokerage, he knew his second passionate career had begun.

    “As a broker AND resident of Old Edwards Club, I have a thorough knowledge, unique perspective and complete understanding of our incredible community and the surrounding area. This helps me provide clients with not only the highest level of professional service, but also personal guidance in choosing the PERFECT residence and real estate investment for them.” Ed


    “Ed is an inspirational leader. Over his years at Crown Automotive, he managed and developed people throughout the organization. As a General Manager, he successfully achieved objectives and grew sales. Ed was a wonderful asset to the organization.”

    “Having worked with Ed for many years, I experienced a level of positive professionalism that is difficult to find. Articulate and enthusiastic, Ed is a strong leader who demonstrates outstanding motivation and team building skills. I highly recommend him.”
