Erik Blinn - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Erik was a tireless worker on the sale of the house.

He was easy to work with and listened to what you had to say. The closing was nicely done by his staff at BW office. We were very pleased with our time with Erik and would highly recommend him.

Erik was extremely helpful during the pursuit of my first place.

Once I had decided on a unit, he was even better.  Even with virtually no help from the seller's agent--Erik picked up keys numerous times, met contractors at the unit to get estimates, while the other agent did little more than pick up her check at closing.  Despite this, Erik went above and beyond in helping me out throughout the entire process.  I highly recommend Erik to anyone looking to buy or sell.


Erik was an absolute pleasure to work with and always went the extra mile.

 He is responsive, professional, knowledgeable and always kept a cool head under pressure.  He made the whole experience of selling our condo so much easier than it could have been.  Erik is an asset to your company and I would highly recommend him to all friends and family members who are considering selling or buying a home.

The process went exceptionally smooth and from day one I appreciated the professionalism and many features of service offered to me.

One being have a booklet with information and pictures of all of the places we saw on our tour. I am a visual learner and like to refer back to my notes to rank and rate. That was awesome, I also really liked how a lot of the process was able to be handled via email especially since I was moving across the U.S. and wasn't readily available to talk 100% of the time. Erik was very professional and efficient with making sure I knew what was required to close in the time-frame we predicted. I came up to Chicago during Martin Luther King Jr weekend to look at places and I closed before the end of February and it was so smooth and I am very happy with my place and decision to move forward and become a homebuyer.

Erik did a fantastic job for me!

It was challenging finding a place since I was relocating from another state but Erik found me a beautiful property and the process was painless.

  Erik was an incredible asset in the home-buying process, and worked tirelessly to make sure that things went smoothly.

He showed me numerous listings that fit my early search parameters, and then helped me narrow them to more effectively find properties that fir my needs.  As a first-time buyer, he guided me through the process, and explained all of its parts thoroughly. He kept me from being overanxious and accepting a counter-offer that was too high. He saved me thousands of dollars in the process. He was also extremely helpful and attentive during the closing process and the closing itself.  When I look for my next place, I will definitely be working with Erik again.

Working with Erik Blinn from Baird and Warner was an excellent experience from beginning to end during the recent listing and sale of my home.

His expertise and recommendations were invaluable in the sales process, and he was always available to answer any of my questions and help me through the paperwork required with the sale of my home. Overall, it was a very seamless process with minimal stress to me and I appreciated the concern and dedication Erik showed during the time from listing to closing. I would highly recommend Erik and by association Baird and Warner with buying and selling of a home as I have used his services for both. A job well done. Bill Weaver

  January 2012 I was given the role as executor of my mother’s estate.

At that time I was introduced to Erik Blinn by another BW professional who I knew from their Residential side.  I needed a Commercial Real Estate professional to work with me to sell a parking lot and a building in Lakeview.  The parking lot had been listed with another firm long before my mother passed away.   Erik listed the parking lot and building. Both sold within six months.  My siblings and I were in awe. He has been absolutely amazing to work with. He knows the Chicago market and has connections to make sure his listings are viewed. We actually received three bids on the building. Dealing with Erik on a personal level has been a privilege. I have six siblings who are looking to me to make sure my mother’s estate is properly handled. Erik responds in a ‘heartbeat’. Regardless of what or when I ask him a question he is right there and answers me immediately. I have relied upon him for guidance on a number of issues dealing with these sales and he is always considerate, compassionate and professional. As one of my attorney’s told me, Erik is one of the hardest working individuals he has ever seen and I completely agree.   Erik goes above and beyond what one would ever expect from a Real Estate professional. He understands the market, but more importantly makes it a point to understand his clients. I would welcome the opportunity to personally speak with anyone about Erik’s exceptional skills.  Meeting him when I did has made a very difficult situation much easier to deal with.

Erik is an excellent choice as your next Realtor whether you're a first time buyer or an experienced veteran.

 I could not have been more pleased with Erik's services.   Erik's extensive experience, patience, flexibility and profound knowledge made for an easy and enlightening endeavor.  Positives of each property were always highlighted as well as any potential challenges to ensure the purchase of a wise and lasting investment at the best possible price.  As a first time buyer, Erik's expertise proved invaluable as necessities and priorities were determined.  When challenges arose, Erik was always able to provide viable solutions. Ultimately, the purchase of my first home could not have been more successful and Erik will be the first person I call should I ever be in the market for another property.

"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."

"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"
