What Separates the Best From the Rest?

Being the best in real estate is not a self-proclaimed right. It is a title that can only be bestowed by happy clients. Happy clients result from hard work, long hours and a love of what you do. And there's no resting on your laurels - it takes happy client after happy client to be the best. 


So we thought we'd share some feedback from a client who describes - in his own words - what separates Erika from the rest...
"Erika Pereira helped us in a real estate search that lasted many months. Her expertise, promptness, commitment, and overall professionalism are unrivaled.

I am sure that most agents would have lost patience with us, given the duration of our search, and the fact that we modified our search criteria many, many times. Not Erika. Erika told us to walk away from several properties, even when we were interested - we found this compelling because she could have earned her commission and moved on. Instead, she took the time to steer us in the right direction. Erika promptly and clearly responded to every question we asked - many of our questions were about minor or even insignificant details - and maintained enthusiasm even when we grew weary. On one occasion, we backed away from a property after making an initial bid; I feared that at this point Erika would write us off as unreliable or undecided clients. When a listing appeared that finally met each of our many criteria, Erika took immediate action so that we could bid before the property's scheduled open house.


She then helped us negotiate credits to our offer, enduring, again, what felt like an excruciatingly detailed back and forth series of emails between the various parties. Erika looked after our interests through this entire process and helped win our prize without over-bidding. After our deal closed, she remained available to us when we sought recommendations for local contractors. I would not consider making a real estate decision without her."
