Edwards Abstract and Title Co. established Edwards University in 2003. The company has had the benefit of resources offered by national underwriters who have always supported Edwards’ forward thinking and service to customers. A few years later ,Mary Hausenfluck (Trendsetters Realty) was the GMAR Education Chair and she contacted Edwards about partnering with GMAR to offer courses for members….. and the rest is history. Glad we could assist Mary! During these challenging times, Edwards University has not taken a step back. Utilizing technology, Edwards has coordinated 15 hours of CE, MCE and MCLE via Zoom for Realtors and Attorneys during the months of April, May and June.
