  • Eric listed, but didn't sell, my home

      Eric is the best....very responsive and knowledgeable. He provided excellent guidance and kept me informed at every step of the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a top producing agent!

    • Eric listed and sold my home

        When I was looking for a Realtor I asked some friends for recommendations. Some did not respond, others were slow in their responses; however Eric was on top of things. He was referred to me by one of our former neighbors. Since they had a great experience with Eric and they sold their home quickly, I contacted Eric. Initial Impression Eric was timely with his responses and he showed up on time. Eric was very knowledgeable about the housing market and what the home would sell for and gave us a breakdown of approximate costs (transfer taxes, fees, etc.). I was impressed with him and felt confident I would sell my home with him. Getting the Home Ready After signing on with him, he came over to assess the home for what should be fixed and/or changed in the home. Again, he was on time and very honest about what we needed to do to have the home ready for showings. Listing I had about 11 showings in the first 4 days of the home being listed. Offer/Negotiating/Contract I received an offer from one of the showings. After discussing the offer and my options, I sent over a counter-offer. No one gets everything they want when negotiating, but the potential buyer and I came to an agreement, with the help of Eric's negotiating skills. After the home inspection the buyer wanted a lot of concessions that did not make a lot of sense. Again, with Eric's negotiating skills the majority of those were removed and only the reasonable/big things were agreed to (such as an HVAC repair). Closing Eric's cost breakdown was spot on. He reviewed the cost breakdown with me at closing and it was exactly as I had expected. His Team I can't leave this review without mentioning the great work and help of Gayle and Lauren on his team. They are great people who helped answer questions and resolve issues. They were also very knowledgeable and always responded very quickly. Recommendation I would not hesitate to work with Eric and his team again. I can't say enough positive things to do them justice. I was very happy to work with him and his team since I thought selling the home would be stressful, but they made it a breeze.

      • Eric listed and sold my home

          Eric Pakulla and his team did an amazing job selling our house. We’d worked with other realtors previously to try to sell our house and were left wondering what exactly their role was in selling our house. Not so with Eric and his team. They took the lead immediately and let us know that had everything under control. Being that we’re out of state from the house that we were trying to sell, we were concerned about being there for appointments and inspections. Eric’s team assured us that they had it handled and was able to be there and represent us at every inspection and appointment. Due to their diligent efforts and dedication to selling our house, we were amazed at how much attention our house got when it was placed on the market. And due to their great insight and hands-on guidance, we felt confident that we knew what needed done to make the house more presentable and appealing to sellers and, ultimately, we quickly sold the house for exactly what we were looking for. When it’s all said and done, Eric made what we were expecting to be a highly stressful, tiring and uncertain endeavor into a smooth, clear-cut and problem-free success! We’re highly grateful for the work that they did to get our house sold and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.

        • Eric listed and sold my home

            I am a repeat client. He and his team as always were very responsive to any emails I sent or phone calls I made. They are all knowledgeable as experts in my opinion. Eric made me feel valued as a person and not just that he was doing a job. He included me in decisions and took the time to explain any question I had about the process. I respect Eric's opinion and would highly recommend him.

          • Eric listed and sold my home

              We were most impressed by the professionalism of Eric Pakulla and his team. He helped us find a fair market value for our home, and to get the house ready for sale. The house sold quickly, with very little stress involved, as Eric made certain the house showed well and often. We highly recommend Mr. Pakulla, with no reservations.

            • Eric listed and sold my home

                Eric sold our home fast. Much faster than we expected. He and his team are very professional and responded to any emails very quickly. We closed on our home today and everything went very smooth. We will definitely use him in the future.

              • Eric listed and sold my home

                  Eric and his team impressed us with thier responsiveness to our needs and clearly explained the current selling environment. They set realistic expectations and timelines. Everyone was professional and Eric as the leader of this team demonstrated, through his actions, why he is successful at selling homes in Maryland and specifically here in Howard county.

                • Eric listed and sold my home

                    We've been thinking about selling our house for years always hesitant to hire a real estate agent, then we met Eric. Eric is a true professional and a master of his trade. He and his helpful team answered all of our questions and were very responsive. Eric is a very organized and focused individual. Eric's knowledge of the area and real estate market in Howard county are unsurpassed. We will definitely be referring Eric to both family and friends, and will absolutely use him again when we buy or sell our next home. We couldn't be happier.

                  • Eric listed and sold my home

                      This is the second house that Eric and his team has helped us sell. It was complicated by having to find and settle on another house on the same day. Eric gave great advice throughout the process and was always there when we had a question or needed direction. We would highly recommend him.

                    • Eric listed and sold my home

                        Eric and his team were great when I had to sell my mother's house. Eric was very professional and honest when we first met with him. He showed us options and came up with a price that was obviously consistent with the market since it sold for that amount in less than a week. Gayle helped get all paperwork complete for us and was persistent when the buyers team wasn't quite prepared for settlement.

                      • Eric is very knowledgeable on the Howard County area and has wonderful relationships with the other local realtors in that area, which greatly enhances the selling process. After a six month relationship with another realtor who failed to get an offer on our house, Eric was able to quickly get us a couple of offers and follow through on one of them through a completed sale. Promises delivered!

                      • Eric and Team are awesome! Very professional, easy to work with, best interest of their clients at heart. We have worked with Eric and his team since 2010. He has helped us sell two homes and buy one. All three experiences were great. We are able to sell quickly for the right price, full price. Our buying experience was also positive

                        - James Tyler
                      • We were elderly sellers and much appreciated all the help we got from Mr. Eric Pakulla re getting property ready for sale, answering my multiple questions, keeping us informed. Gayle Soriano was great. We moved into our new home the end of August so left a lot of the details to Eric Pakulla

                        - James & Nancy Carter
                      • Eric and his team did an excellent job advising us with the sale of our property. He informed us what to anticipate at each step of the process, which was particularly helpful. Most importantly, he has a thorough understanding of the market conditions, which helped us set realistic expectations. Overall, I would highly recommend Eric and his team to others

                        - Sirisha Upadhayala
                      • Eric and his team had our best interests throughout the entire selling process. I especially appreciated the high level of communication and never once had to wait for a call back. I wish I had more homes to sell with the Pakulla team!

                        - Josh Drazkowski
                      • Eric has now helped us sell multiple homes and done a great job every time which is why we keep coming back to him. He's immediately responsive and on top of the process from start to finish but doesn't bug you in the middle if there's nothing new to talk about. :-) He is familiar at all times with what buyers in this area are looking for and willing to pay for at that specific point in time - this is invaluable to help you as a seller make the best decision on pricing, improvements, and offers.

                        - Amy LoPresti
                      • In a difficult sale situation, Eric treated all parties with respect, communicated effectively throughout the process and gave great advice while allowing us to make the final decision on everything.
