Erick sold our home for more than the asking price in one day, and helped us find and close our new home two months later. Very knowledgeable about both Santa Cruz County and Silicon Valley. Can’t really do a better job than what Erick did for us
Erick has always been an amazing resource for us when it comes to real estate. From guiding us through our first home purchase to selling our home, Erick has a wealth of valuable experience and knows how to successfully navigate the market to get the best outcome for his clients.
Buying a house is a stressful process and Erick made it as pleasant as possible! Santa Cruz is a competitive market and we aren't cash buyers or millionaires, but Erick never gave up or lost hope with us. His local knowledge and connections helped us get a house before it hit the market which we know we would have mostly likely been outbid on. Erick was incredibly helpful and kind the entire process and we now think of him as a friend. We will definitely be recommending him to our friends and will be using him if we ever move on from our current home.
Erick was a proactive partner in the successful sale of our home at the top end of the market. Together, we developed a comprehensive renovation and marketing budget based on optimizing our net proceeds from the sale. Erick recommended local subcontractors and service providers who performed on-time and on-budget. In short order, we had the house on the market for top dollar and received a full price offer with 30-day close in the first 48 hours. Everyone, including our buyers, were happy with the transaction and it's notable that the buyers requested an accelerated closing date soon after they entered escrow. Erick was always accessible and delightful to work with. He strives for a win-win relationship and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell!
Erick had extensive knowledge of the various smaller neighborhoods and surrounding areas of Santa Cruz. This greatly helped to find which areas would be best suited for me. His understanding of the process and city specific details, as well as professional network is what secured the deal. I would highly recommend Erick!
Easy to Work With
Erick was easy to work with very knowledgeable and professional. Professional tradespeople supporting him for setting the house up for sale and got us top dollar. Can recommend him highly enough. House sold in less then week for over asking.
Helped Us Immensely
Being first time home buyers in the Bay Area made us very nervous, but Erick helped us immensely throughout this process. Erick guided us through the negotiation buying process and got us a great deal on the first house we put an offer on! We went into this process being pre-approved thinking we had our finances in order while after submitting all the financial documents into underwriting our lender went M.I.A. Then, Erick suggested we get in touch with Matthew Falconer from 02 Mortgage. He was able to get us closed on the house in only two weeks! Erick not only helped with the financing but also provided us with advice on home inspectors, termite inspectors, and septic inspectors. He made our home buying experience as painless as possible and without his guidance and suggestions this might have not been possible. Thank you, Erick for being there for our emotional roller-coaster as we bought our first home!
Found Exactly What We Wanted
We had the pleasure of working with Erick twice - he helped us buy our starter home in San Jose 9 years ago and helped us sell it this year. As a buying agent, he showed us good options in our price range and was patient until we found exactly what we wanted. As our selling agent, he was amazing in helping us coordinate, get staging done, get cleaners and last minute landscaping, and got us TWENTY THREE offers ALL above asking!! Incredible.
He helped us evaluate all those options and get our house sold timely. We had already moved cross country, so he was able to do all that while we were remote. Highly recommend him! Thanks again, Erick! :)
We've just bought our house with Erick as an agent. He was absolutely professional, provided us with all information, patient, kind and always positive. We are really thankful to Erick for amazing job!
Great to Work With
Erick was great to work with! Very knowledable, patient, reassuring and all the other things you hope your realtor will be. The purchashing process in this market can be incredibly stressful, especially funding, and it was so nice to work with someone so on top of it. Thank you Erick!!!
Erick was a consummate professional in every way for our search for a new home. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a skilled and knowledgeable Santa Cruz county representative.
Erick is an amazing asset for anyone in the real estate market. His expertise, follow through and communication skills are what make Erick a great partner. I have used Erick to sell and buy homes and you should to.
If you want a full service realtor that will see your sale/purchase to the end, look no further. We had such a wonderful experience with Erick! Buying and/or selling your home is a stressful process, but Erick made us feel comfortable and supported the whole way through. He gave thoughtful advice, helped us connect with vendors (contractors, inspectors, etc.), and was patient with us as we searched for our forever home. He's professional, very knowledgeable, and most importantly, honest. I cannot recommend this guy enough!
Attentive to Our Needs
Erick helped us purchase our first home, and more recently has helped us to sell the same home and purchase our second. We can count on Erick to be accurate, equitable and timely all while making us feel like valued customers and friends. Additionally, Erick is attentive to our expressed needs and wants and does his utmost to make them a reality. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
You Will Not Be Dissapointed
I don’t usually write reviews but I must make an exception when it comes to Erick! I listed my home of 18 years with him as part of my plan to prepare for retirement. I am a few years away from actually retiring and I was very nervous about selling my house. I wasn’t sure I was really ready to do it! My first meeting with Erick put me totally at ease. He listened to my plans and offered the information and suggestions I needed for that first meeting. He was extremely informative about the market, the neighborhood, inspections, the title process, etc. He had every answer to my questions and absolutely no pressure! It was like talking to a trusted friend. My house needed a few repairs, both cosmetic and necessary, so when I did list the house, Erick was right there with trades people lined up and ready to go within the first week. And did I mention I was nervous about selling? Well, I stalled twice and again, no pressure from Erick. He was committed to me being 100% comfortable with the entire process. Getting my house on the market was only half of the process. I had some very specific desires in finding a new home and I soon learned how really very knowledgeable Erick is about the market, the trends, types of properties, mortgages, etc. He made finding the right home easy! The right home turned out to be a great buy with multiple parties ready to make offers and Erick’s expertise in knowing the ropes of presenting an offer got my offer accepted. That same weekend, I accepted a great offer on my home ( the first and only open house!) and both escrows closed 3 weeks later. If you are looking for a great realtor, call Erick. You will not be disappointed!
Torchbearer of Our Whole Process
Erick has been the torchbearer of our whole process of getting a home. I found him online, didn't have any references. He is extremely punctual, has a great deal of knowledge about the bay area properties and market which can only come with lot of experience. He met us and understood what we were looking for, and whenever we visited properties, he would take deep interest in our likings and give valuable suggestions. His estimates for extra work on the houses were always accurate. He has a very good knowledge of offer ranges as well. For every property he knew exactly what would be the range of the winning offer.
He never missed a call, never a minute late for any open house/ house tour. He went on a vacation in the middle of our house hunt process, yet he made sure he was in touch and sent someone to cover for him during that week. Our escrow was 21 days, and it wouldn't have been possible without all his help.
I would highly recommend Erick for first time home buyers as he addresses all the concerns and questions patiently and tries to make you feel very comfortable about the purchase. Also, he is not at all pushy and lets you be confident about your range and only then does his job. He is also very prompt with all the paper work and puts a great personalized offer, which I think makes a difference.
I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family and would love to work with him in future! We got a house within 3 months of hunting!
Erick worked closely with us through the grueling search of finding a home in the bay area. With prices continually rising, we were impressed with Erick's expertise of neighborhoods and where he thought we would be happiest. Our purchase came after Erick encouraged us to look at a home and even went through the inspection process with the inspector before we looked at the house. Even after the sale, we were happy with Erick's follow through with our move-in process. We were very happy with our choice to purchase a home with Erick!
Easy to Work With
Erick helped our son purchase a condo on or about the same time he helped sell our condo. Very professional, courteous, and easy to work with. Would definitely use his services again if needed and would recommend him to our friends and families. He also has a good, competent network of service providers and contractors related to home repairs, remodeling and financing.
Erick was a very personable and friendly person that made us feel at ease from our first meeting. At the same time he was very knowledgeable, kept in touch with us and honestly answered any questions we might have. Having lived in our home for 36 years we were dreading the selling process. Fortunately for us Erick's professional skills made the process run smoothly which we greatly appreciated.
We had an excellent experience working with Erick to buy our first home. He was very knowledgeable and very patient with us. We would definitely recommend working with him.
Erick also had a great ability to build a relationship with the selling agent which we think made a huge difference in the process.
Would Definitely Recommend
We would definitely recommend Erick as an Agent, he is the best!!! He is very knowledgeable, and works well with his clients in getting the information we needed and working with us in all fazes of selling our Mother's home. Thanks Erick!!!
Erick is the best... THE END! Let me start off saying I am probably one of those home buyers that agents hate, but Erick never made me feel as if I was too picky or unrealistic. My husband and I were first time home buyers and found Erick through our lender and we couldn't have been happier. We started looking for our home in 2011. Our first trip out Erick showed us a few properties based on our likes and most were pretty good. We were impressed with his professionalism, his knowledge not only about purchasing homes, but everything thing that goes with buying a home. When we did find "the home" we wanted Erick was very competitive and never steered shy of letting the selling agent know we are the buyers that will make this deal happen. In the end we got the home in South San Jose and we couldn't be happier! Erick made us feel like we were his only clients and always put us first, even though I know he was always juggling multiple clients. If we needed to look at a home late at night to be the first bid we did it. Erick never fell short! AAAAAA+ Realtor!
Because Erick did such an amazing job the first time around and we felt so comfortable with him we decided to buy house number two! YEP! He was again the best Realtor one could ask for. With the market very competitive we had a heck of a time finding the perfect home, but Erick found it for us. In fact, he found this home before it hit MLS...YES so we got the home before it hit the market! He does his homework and it pays off!
If you need a Realtor don't hesitate to contact Erick.. you wont be disappointed!
