“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 great! Knowledgeable, helpful, went above and beyond to make the sale happen."
"My wife and I have been working with Erik for over a year to find the right home for us. Erik was extremely patient with us as we looked at well over 30 homes in the area. He was very flexible and accommodating in his schedule for us. Sometimes we would see a home come on the market, text Erik, and we would look at the home that same day. Erik always maintained constant communication with us throughout this process. Erik is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate market in the Chicagoland area. His advice and knowledge was priceless. Erik has also done numerous home builds and rehabs. He is highly attentive to detail on things my wife and I often overlooked or didn’t think about. These attributes contribute to his vision of a home’s potential.
Once we put a bid in on a house, Erik took over the process making it extremely easy for us during contracting. He gave us great recommendations from inspectors to lenders to lawyers.
Overall, my wife and I highly recommend Erik and I couldn’t have imagined a more positive experience in a very stressful buying process."
"Erik was great to work with. Our sale was not the typical scenario and despite this, Erik's extensive network of contacts allowed us to sell quickly without having to officially list."
"Erik was fantastic! He was very patient with us with all our requests and eventually found us our dream home! We couldn't be happier!!!! Erik is also extremely personable and I think works great with people. Would definitely recommend him to anyone ."
"Erik was a fantastic resource during our house hunting experience. Having never lived in the Chicago area, we were coming in with little to no information regarding what suburban areas to consider. Erik provided great advice in terms of matching the property location with our personal needs and we ended up selecting a fantastic home. Having been in the location now for a few months, I can successfully say that we made a great choice and could not have done so without the assistance of Erik!"
