Lewis Realty Associates, Inc of Surf City is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Ed McKenna to Vice President.
McKenna started with Lewis Realty Associates, Inc in 2011 after over 30 years in the real estate industry. McKenna fast became a top producing agent of the firm in a very tough market as a result of the financial crisis and housing industry collapse. McKenna was identified by several banks who held foreclosed properties and assisted them in liquidating 100s of their assets which aided in the repair of the local real estate market. The skills McKenna honed during this time has proven beneficial today with his certain aptitude to successfully move properties where other agents have failed. McKenna has also represented many developers, builders, investors and completed a transaction with the North Carolina ABC Board.
In 2014, Lewis Realty Associates, Inc completed a successful acquisition of another original Topsail Island real estate company, Bryson and Associates, Inc. McKenna was appointed to head Lewis Realty’s sales department at that time. Since that appointment, McKenna has recruited top agents and grown the department exponentially to become one of the area’s leading companies.
McKenna has also been instrumental in the local Topsail Island Association of Realtors by serving as their president for 3 terms in 2012, 2013 & 2018 and receiving their coveted Realtor of the Year Award in 2012.
Lewis Realty Associates, Inc President Chris Rackley said “When the company had the opportunity to recruit Ed we knew it was a must do. Ed’s track record since has solidified that decision and he is a tremendous asset to not only the company but the local real estate market.”
