Buying and selling a home is a very personal experience and, likely, one of the most important events in a person's life. Whether it's a client's first time buying a home or selling their tenth home, I dedicate the same high level of care, service and commitment to everyone I work with. My services go well beyond the typical agent experience including hiring and collaborating with interior designers, architects and contractors to get a home ready to list; partnering with the best companies who handle all logistics for shipping and storage for cars, artwork and wine.
"Is six stars a thing? I can't say enough about my positive experience working with Eric to buy my home in Seattle. He is very knowledgeable about the local market, extremely responsive, always available for showings that worked with my schedule, provided thoughtful insight, and was a joy to work with! Eric is authentic and genuine, which you don't always find in an agent. I really appreciated that he never pressured me and wanted to make sure I found the right home for me. He expertly guided me through a stressful situation with another offer and I ended up getting the first house I put an offer on! Everyone should be so lucky as to work with Eric."

"Sitting at the end of the process of selling our first home, we can't imagine entrusting this job to anyone other than Eric. He's an amazing and thoughtful guide through the selling project, a real partner in all the decisions that need to be made, and a truly excellent, proactive communicator.
Despite many agent recommendations from friends and family, my husband and I sought Eric entirely based on his market accomplishments, when we noticed that he recently sold a house similar to ours in our neighbourhood. We were immediately impressed with his openness, his thoughtfulness about the market and the depth of his knowledge. We firmly believe that it takes a unique skillset to be a seller agent - and Eric was able to prove that to us, time and time again. From planning & strategy in a volatile market, to staging the house beautifully, to dealing with our (many) questions while being out of the country and in a different time zone, Eric has gone above and beyond for us. He handled everything with the grace of a friend and the professionalism we came to expect from him.
To us, liking our real estate agent was never a requirement, but we now understand why some people love their brokers...we're enthusiastically recommending Eric and we look forward to buying our Seattle home with him when we return to the US."

"Eric and the REAL Residential team are the best in the business. We first worked with the team to find our first home in 2011. Thanks to their sage guidance and preparation, we made an offer on a Ballard townhome upon seeing it, instead of "sleeping on it", like I planned to do, which allowed us to win the home from another buyer and gave us an incredible home for the next 11 years..
Earlier this year, it came time to find a new home and, once again, Eric and the REAL Residential team were stalwart guides through the process between seven different offers, all the strategy, and eventually a great new home for our next chapter – still in Ballard. Of course, this big milestone also meant we had to sell our first home. Thankfully, Eric made the process easy and absolutely crushed the outcome.
From the staging to dedicated website, proactive marketing to contracts, Eric was top flight, securing multiple, competing bids above ask within just a few business days of listing the property. Soon, we were all done after a fast close with our new home secure and our old home sold – all thanks to the tremendous work of Eric and the REAL Residential team. We recommend working with Eric on any of your home sale or purchase needs – you'll be glad you did!"
