Meet The Team

Ed Akers

Team Leader

Branch Development Manager - Avondale Office

As a Jacksonville native who has resided in both Duval and Clay County, Edmund has an extensive and comprehensive understanding of the lifestyle, communities, schools, neighborhoods and businesses on the First Coast. Edmund is a proven leader with a strong record of professional achievements and boasts years of experience and knowledge in both the real estate and mortgage servicing industries going back to 1987. His experience as a REALTOR, Real Estate Office Manager, Real Estate Software Developer and Market Analyst, Program Manager and Corporate RiskDirector for a multi-billion dollar company provides Edmund with all the tools in his back pocket to achieve success on every transaction. Edmund realizes that each transaction is unique and multifaceted, thus, he utilizes all his learned experiences with buyers and sellers, as well as his meticulous attention to facts and detail, to create a well-rounded, individualized service that assures results. Additionally, Edmund maintains a large network of business contacts and has served on several non-profit boards. His intrigue and passion for the real estate business plus his long history of volunteerism are evident in every effort to help his customer’s in every aspect of the real estate transaction. His former leadership on a local historic community non-profit board, Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR) Council, as well as on-going work experiences of engaging the City of Jacksonville on various matters on historic and older properties have become priceless in maneuvering through some very difficult real estate transactions. In 2021, Edmund started THE AKERS GROUP with Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty to share his experience with others in the real estate business, thoughtfully recruiting members to the team that shared the same passion and experience of the real estate business and create a team of excellence. THE AKERS GROUP services the Greater Jacksonville, Florida real estate market collaboratively working as a team to bring the level of service possible to our customers.

Glenn Guiler

Glenn Guiler has spent a lifetime learning how
to make a house a home…wherever it may be. Born in England and raised a military brat, from Air Force base military housing to residences in seven U.S. states, plus England and France, Glenn truly understands the value and meaning of “home”.

He also knows the value of relationships. Building trust and goodwill with customers is something he learned over a long career as a luxury retail sales and management consultant. And it’s one of the foundational skills he brings to his real estate business. He’s also a detail-oriented planner, always working with the end in mind. It’s a trait that helped him succeed as an advertising account manager for a wide range of prestigious luxury brands, and it informs his approach to guiding customers today.

Having been settled in Jacksonville for more than a decade now, Glenn is an enthusiastic supporter of the arts, including the Jacksonville Symphony, and a member of the Vestry of St. Johns Episcopal Cathedral. He’s an accomplished “armchair” interior designer, with a keen eye for color, as well as an avid gardener.

When you’re ready to embark on your next real estate journey, call on a professional with the proven skills to help guide you home…



Investors are great clients for us. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to us.

Whether it’s a land, shopping mall, a small office building or a restaurant space, we are your commercial property specialist. Contact us for your commercial property needs in the Jacksonville real estate markets.

Our residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and we do it with professionalism and a total dedication to our clients. This property type is the majority of our market transactions, but by far not the only one in which we have expertise.

While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and we are experts in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type.

I worked with Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty for the past 6 months & would highly recommend them! We already closed with them on one property and am in the process of finding another one with them.

Hands Down, The Best

I bought several houses and hands down, Edmund is the best real estate agent I’ve ever used. They know every inch of the Jacksonville area and housing marketplace.
