Eric was great. He got me through a complicated process explaining all the steps along the way. I found the house of my dreams and Eric helped me buy it. I couldn't have done it without Eric's help.

My wife and I recently bought a house in D.C. It would not have happened without the experience and grit shown by Eric. We had built a great relationship for over two years with Eric while we considered the idea of buying our first home. Eric was incredibly patient with us, while still being attentive to our questions in the earlier stages. Once we were ready to buy, Eric made it seem effortless. We know there was a stroke of luck along the way, but Eric made it seem stress free. He was organized, responsive, strategic and comforting throughout the entire process. If you're looking to buy a home in the DC area, you'd be lucky to have Eric by your side.

Eric is, quite simply, the best Realtor I've ever worked with. I've bought and sold before, but was a first timer in D.C. Eric came at the recommendation of a colleague, and the experience was beyond excellent. Eric is always available (morning, midday, or late at night), punctual, and he has the best work ethic I've ever seen from a real estate professional. He helped me identify several homes matching my criteria, toured *all of 7 them* with me on a Saturday, and by Monday evening, my offer had been accepted. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and I'll be letting everyone in my network know that if they need a Realtor in Washington, Maryland or Virginia, Eric is the first -- and only -- person you need to call.
