"Erik was recommended by a co-worker. Time was of the essence as I needed to move quickly, and Erik made himself available to see listings I was interested in. Besides the places I selected, Erik added other places that matched my interests. I was really impressed by his attention to detail as he had a binder that listed all the places and the specific details. He listened when I mentioned things that I liked and didn’t and addressed my concerns. His years of experienced showed when he talked about the major equipment at each of the homes. At one point I was feeling overwhelmed, anxious and exhausted, it seemed that every place I had the intention to place an offer, was quickly contingent/under contract. I remember telling Erik that I was giving up and he said to me be patient and we will find a place you will love. I will never forget that because today I live in a place that fits me and that I love. He recommended mortgage companies, inspectors, and attorneys, everything I needed for a smooth transaction. I highly recommend Erik."

"Erik was absolutely incredible to work with. 100% professional and without a doubt the best we could have ever asked for. He showed us 30+ homes before we found "the one". Erik really knew his stuff, he was always very friendly and did his best to work around our crazy schedules. He never slacked and went above and beyond every chance he got. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy"

"Erik was able to control every aspect of the selling and buying process. What could have been a very stressful time for me was kept under control by Erik’s professionalism, dedication, empathy, and knowledge of the real estate climate and business. Erik was able to emphasize what would be best for me, so I did not make any irrational decisions, such as jumping into something I would deeply regret later. Erik would always be there to answer my questions, by answering my phone calls right then and there, or calling me back immediately. Erik just takes pride in how he cares for his clients, his position as a realtor, and that he wants what best for his clients. I would highly recommend Erik in the future."
