format_quoteErik and his team were great! They went above and beyond helping us get our house ready to list. Erik helped us prioritize what items to fix, recommended great contractors and even rolled up his sleeves to touch up some paint. His marketing materials were excellent. All communication was clear and timely. Erik made selling our home as easy as possible and helped us get top dollar. With other realtors you sometimes wonder what they did to earn their commission, not with Erik. I can't recommend him enough.format_quote
format_quoteErik is the best. He helped us buy a home in Seattle this year and we feel so lucky to have had his expertise, patience, humor, and experience through the process. When we got a bit impatient with how long the process of finding our dream house that checked all the boxes was taking (there are a lot of imperfect homes out there!), Erik was patient and great at reminding us of the things that were important to us and helped us hold out until the perfect house came along. When it did, he helped us negotiate a price we were happy with. When the process got a bit complicated around closing he carefully explained everything to us, advocated for us and went above and beyond to make sure everything worked out in our favor. If you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy, smart, and fun realtor to help you buy or sell your home, look no further!format_quote
format_quoteOur experience working with Erik surpassed all of our expectations. Erik was extremely prepared for the sale of our home in Madison Park and provided just the right amount of detail needed to start the process. He was collaborative, while at the same time providing his expertise in the local market. Erik did a fantastic job of staging our home and went the extra mile in making it easy on our family to prepare our home for the sale. His ability to connect with buyers, sellers and agents is impressive and made the experience for all very rewarding, ultimately helping us to achieve several offers, resulting in a final sale price well over asking. Erik has the right mix of real estate acumen, personality and passion to ensure a successful and rewarding experience. I highly recommend Erik for your next real estate need, whether it be searching for that special place to call home or helping you place your house on the market!format_quote
