Elva Jackson Garza has the ability to predict the future. One can practically see the wheels turning as she talks. At one of the many events she puts together for Edwards Abstract, she was chatting with guests one minute, then checking on supplies, making sure everyone had what they needed, then running off to take photographs. She makes it look effortless, even though she’s put untold hours into making sure everything runs on schedule.

Elva joined the Edwards Team in 2002 as Vice President and Marketing Manager. She has worked more than 30 years in the marketing and corporate public relations field. Working at Edwards feels to her like being in a family. She is quick to point out the strengths of her colleagues, and they reciprocate, like family members proud of their company and each other.

Managing the Business Development component for the company is an essential part of her responsibilities. She oversees the Edwards Business Central Group that includes the escrow officers and office managers in Cameron and Hidalgo Counties. She coordinates the customer, employee and community events on behalf of Edwards Abstract and Title Co. for the seven offices in both counties. She has been in charge of the company’s annual State of Real Estate Forum since 2003 and is proud that it continues to be one of Edwards’ premier events. In addition to her marketing, public relations, customer relations and advertising responsibilities, Elva prepares and coordinates with of the employee and customer education programs for the company. Two of her greatest assets are her organizational skills  and long-range planning that allow her to focus on multiple tasks at one time and to plan ahead and be prepared for the next program or event.
