“I have a love for real estate and personal interaction so I consider myself fortunate to have found the perfect job. I am excited to put my experience to use helping clients on a daily basis with their real estate needs.”
Clients are saying:
"Erik is an amazing broker. His knowledge of construction services was very helpful as my wife and I browsed every type of house on the market from fixer-uppers to move-in ready. He found my us the house of our dreams in a very competitive buyer's market. With his help, we were able to navigate through the uncertainties that all first time home buyers face. We were in competition with THREE other buyers for our house and Erik designed an offer that beat all others while retaining value for us. He will be my very first call if we ever decide to buy or sell real estate in the future."
"My husband and I engaged Erik to sell our Wrigelyville condo we had been renting. Throughout the process, Erik was incredibly professional, engaging and great to work with. He took the time to share his knowledgeable of the market and appropriately gage our expectations. Our condo sold quickly and we were very happy with the closing price. In addition to our current sale, Erik provided insight and advice regarding our current and future real estate goals that has been invaluable. We could not have asked for a better agent."
"Erik has represented me during the purchase and sale of my personal residence and several investment properties throughout the Chicagoland area. He is very detail oriented and has always offered great guidance in navigating through a stressful process. I would highly recommend Erik to anyone looking for assistance in buying or selling a property."
"Erik helped me buy both my first condo and the house that replaced it. He knows a lot about rehabbing property (which I needed to know in the area where I bought my house), and is a warm, friendly confident when you are going through one of the more stressful experiences of your life. I called Erik when I started looking for my house, knowing that he was used to dealing with a much higher price point than I was looking to buy, just to see if he had someone he could refer me to--he immediately offered to help me find my house! He did not make a ton of money on the sale of my house, but you would never know that from his level of commitment and his care and attention. I would strongly recommend Erik if you are looking for a new home in the Chicagoland area."
"Erik is hands down the best realtor I've ever worked with (and I've had a few good ones). He listened carefully to what we wanted in our "forever home" and walked us through important details to consider for each property. He obviously did his homework and was able to leverage his construction experience. Two years into living in our dream that Erik found for us, we're as happy as ever. Thanks again Erik!"
