‟To Whom It May Concern: When my wife and I decided to list our home, we wanted to take a thorough approach and interview several top realtors in our area. We were seeking an agent who understood the intricacies of the current housing market, has enjoyed a successful track record as a Realtor, grasped the value proposition of our home, and was able … to listen and respond to our concerns and questions throughout the process. During the interview period, we met Eric and Robin. They immediately separated themselves from the other agents we had encountered. First, Eric and Robin entered our home with a noticeable respect. They were the first realtors who didn't start the meeting by telling us what we needed to upgrade or improve upon should they take the listing. They listened to our story, and took notice of our thoughts regarding many issues and items within our home. Additionally, they didn't talk about their previous clients' personal stories- as other realtors had done. We weren't interested in working with someone who would share our personal information with their next potential clients after escrow closed. Second, we were impressed with their extensive knowledge and understanding of the current financial situation, especially during these unprecedented times. They demonstrated an outstanding knowledge that went beyond the typical housing averages, and were able to speak intelligently to current financial markets. I later learned that Eric has an extensive background in this area. Third, we were surprised that they knew more about our home builder than we did. Not only that, but they knew the background and history of the other home builders in our neighborhood and surrounding areas as well. To our surprise, this became a key element in the selling of our home. Finally, and most importantly, we do not believe we would have sold our home in this environment without Eric and Robin. Like many other escrow transactions, we encountered some serious obstacles throughout the escrow period. Because of their extensive knowledge, experience and ability to listen, they single-handedly overcame every major issue that we encountered with the buyers during the escrow process. Even more impressive, they sold our home during one of the worst financial crisis our nation's history, and sold it for the highest price that anyone has ever paid for our model! I think the highest complement you can give someone is a referral. Not only would I refer Eric and Robin to an acquaintance or friend, but I would refer them to my own family. I can't think of a better way of saying that we would use them all over again! Best” Read More ▾
‟Robin and Eric make a great team! We were looking for a 2nd home in CA (we reside in AZ) and were mostly unfamiliar with the area and the real estate landscape and we really relied on their expertise to guide us to the right buying decision. We couldn't be happier with their knowledge of the local market and their service and with the home they hel … ped us choose” Read More ▾
‟In about 20 years of trying of renting out my unit myself, I never had any better tenants than the fine folks Robin and Eric were able to find for me in 2011. These tenants left the unit is truly excellent shape and always paid the rent on time or earlier. Well done Robin and Eric, I highly recommend you for finding good tenants!”
‟We were very anxious about the process of selling our house, and even more anxious about the prospect of finding a new one that fit all our criteria in a price range and location we could be happy with over the long term. But Robin and Eric came through for us and made an inherently stressful process as stress-free as possible. From doing an initi … al walk-through where Robin gave us great ideas about how to declutter and stage our home before listing it, to providing a well thought-out pricing and marketing strategy that included professional photos and an online home tour, then sitting for multiple open houses, they provided stellar service. We felt they gave our town home the same amount of attention and effort they would to one of their $1 million+ listings. And at the end of the day, after helping us navigate through several low-ball offers, they found us a solid buyer willing to pay a price we could be satisfied with. They are definitely the go-to experts for real estate in the University Town Center area. Eric seemed to have every sale for the past 10 years committed to memory, which was a little scary... and very helpful! Mean time, they helped us narrow down options for our new house, were patient in showing us many properties, and spent even more time without us previewing houses and weeding out those that wouldn't be a good fit. They understood what we were looking for in a new house and neighborhood, then helped us find it, and gave us the tools to make a successful offer. We are extremely happy in our new home and grateful that Robin and Eric were there to lead us through the process” Read More ▾

‟I am so happy that I had Eric and Robin to help me out with the purchase of my first house. The process as we all know is a very daunting one, but Eric and Robin were always there to explain and smooth out the transaction. My parents even commented that my purchase was the smoothest house purchase they have ever heard. Most of my interactions we … re with Eric, and what I remember most is his integrity and professionalism. Even though he was down with the flu, he still took time to review my documents and made sure I wasn't taken in by the loan company. I highly recommend Eric & Robin and would definitely use them again for any future real estate transactions I may have” Read More ▾
‟Dear Century 21, My husband and I would like to let you know how extremely pleased we were to work once again with Robin and Eric during the sale of our Quail Hill home. We have now had the pleasure of working with them three times since June 2001, and have been completely satisfied with the exceptional service we received. Their diligence with ha … ving weekend open houses on a regular basis was key in the sale of our home and they ended up bringing in the buyer themselves. Their experience was invaluable in working with the escrow and title companies in order for us to close on times, as we had purchased a new home and the timing and wiring of funds was critical. Robin and Eric work well as a team. They are good listeners and were very willing to incorporate requests regarding the sale. They are always available and reachable by phone when you need to speak with them. We recommend them highly -- you won't be disappointed. Very truly yours” Read More ▾

‟My wife and I were very happy with Robin and Eric. We met them in our neighborhood at one of their open house. Right away, we had good feeling about them; that they were going to sell our house. We had 2 other agents in mind through friends but we decided to go with Robin and Eric. They make a great team. Robin is very artistic and Eric is a strong … negotiator. Robin helped stage our house perfectly with style. Eric knows how to negotiate effectively. Together, they helped us sell our house at a record high in our area. Eric is very professional and gets the job done. Overall, we had an excellent experience with Robin and Eric through the whole selling process.
