Erin Swenson's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Erin Swenson

    • We were absolutely blown away with Erin's effort, diligence, follow through and genuine interest in selling our home. We had previously worked with a different agent for a few months, with little to no results. After taking our place off of the market for a few months, then re-listing with Erin, we had showings within the first week, and within a month had an accepted offer! Erin did a great job marketing our property and was in constant communication every step of the way. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND working with Erin!

    • We worked with Erin through the Homes for Heroes program and she was fantastic! She was helpful, knowledgeable and patient with us in our search. She was willing to show us as many houses as we needed to find the "one." She worked with us through the entire process and beyond. Six months after we moved in, we had a furnace issue and she helped us work with the home warranty company to ensure we got what we needed. That is great customer service to me! I would, and already have, recommended Erin to people looking to buy or sell their house.

    • Erin was great at zeroing in on what we were looking for in a house, even though we couldn't necessarily clearly communicate it. She kept finding out more about us as we looked at houses and really was able to narrow it down to what we wanted.We wondered when she ever slept because she was always incredibly responsive to our questions and was able to get showings setup very fast. This was very important as new listings were not staying on the market very long.She had a great grasp of what the fair price for a house might be and would help us with her opinion of what the seller might be willing to accept.We also were selling our house with Erin, and as a selling agent, she was incredible as well. She brought in staging materials for the picture and video. The photographer/videographer did an excellent job of showing our house in the best way.As with the buying side of things, she had great feedback for us on what she thought we could get out of each offer we had on our house.All in all, we had an excellent experience and have recommended her to several of our family and friends.

      - Buyer/Seller, Cottage Grove, WI
    • Erin was not our first broker, but she actually was the selling agent of a house we were looking at. After that house sold, we liked Erin enough that we switched brokers as she was super nice, and she had a sincere interest in helping us find the right house. She never got frustrated as we revised our budget significantly, and had her driving all around the Madison suburbs. I cannot speak highly enough of her, and it was great when we found the house we bought because she knew it was the right house as well. Very easy to work with, and we love our new house. Also, she has a program that saved us off closing costs from where my wife works.

      - Buyer, Madison, WI
    • Erin did a great job working with my wife and I throughout the entire home buying process. Erin is great to work with, very knowledgeable, and professional.

      - Matthew L, Sun Prairie, WI
    • Erin guided us through both the sale and purchase of homes last year. She provided us with great customer service as we looked at many homes, to finally find the perfect one. After our closing, she still provides great customer service and is ready to help with anything that we might need.I would recommend her to anyone looking for their next move. She made the process and transition very smooth and we enjoyed working with her.

      - Buyer/Seller, Fall River, WI
    • Erin patiently guided my wife and I through the entire house hunting and buying process. She initially met with us to get an in-depth understanding of what we were looking for, and then dutifully followed up with us over the course of several months to show us a wide variety of houses. Once we found the house we wanted, she helped us at every step, assisting us with negotiating a price, navigating the inspection process, finding people to fix defects, and helping us find a lender that we could trust. She was our one-stop point of contact, as she had a great recommendation for any problem we had: a chimney guy, an electrician, a plumber, etc. However, the best part about working with Erin was her friendliness and wonderful personality. Once we moved into our new house, my wife an I both remarked that we were happy to be done with the process, but we missed getting to spend time with Erin. Simply put: She was great.

      - Buyer, Madison, WI
    • Erin went above and beyond our expectations for a realtor! We loved her! She was friendly and funny, and really made the stressful process of home-buying very enjoyable! We were first-time home-buyers and she put us immediately at ease with her knowledge of the area, ability to adapt to an ever-expanding home search as we figured out what we wanted in our home, and information on what to look for in each home we walked through. She was available 24/7 for any issues that arose during the buying process. We had a sticky situation revolving around closing (my husband couldn't be present at the time set because of a work emergency) to the point where we may have lost the house, been sued for the deposit if he missed closing or both! Erin worked tirelessly over an entire weekend to figure out how the papers could be signed and closing could still go through, and it all worked out because she got the title company to open early so that he could still sign! She was a life-saver! I have no doubt that she will do anything for her buyers and she proved that over and over again during this process. On top of all of that, she participates in Homes For Heros, which gives money back to those who are military, police/fire, or health care employees! Saved so much because I'm a nurse! She is still our first resource for any questions or referrals we may need in our home. Couldn't be happier to have used Erin, and will definitely do so again if we ever need to!

    • I worked with Erin Swenson to both lists and sell my home of 22 years and then to purchase a smaller condo.I found her to be proactive, honest and upfront with me about the local comps and the value of my home. She was knowledgeable about repairs and offered affordable contacts to assist with the items I needed to update in order to list. I sold my house in less than 6 weeks, so she was obviously right.Erin was also very active in her search to assist me with a new place that was just right for me.I love my new place.

      - Seller, Stoughton, WI
    • Erin was phenomenal in helping me and my fianc purchase our first home. She is very good at explaining the process and paperwork and made sure that everything went smoothly. She is very quick to respond to any questions and even met us on Labor Day so we could submit our offer right away. She is very down to earth and easy to work with, and I felt she had our best interest at heart the entire time. I would definitely recommend Erin for your real estate needs!

      - Buyer, Madison, WI
    • Had a great experience with Erin, she really went out of her way to help us sell our condo even though she was not going to make much on commission! Also brought Homes for Heroes to our attention which was another savings for us. She also helped us to purchase our new home which was not the most straight forward - several complications when the owner passed away but in the end, we got what we wanted. Very appreciative for her help!

      - Buyer/Seller, Madison, WI
    • My family and I moved to the Madison area with very little knowledge of the local market. Erin quickly taught us what the local market was like and how to navigate the area geographically and cost wise. We decided on the Sun Prairie area for various reasons and Erin went straight to work for us. We toured many homes in the area and she got a feel for what we were looking for. After only 3 weeks she was able to find our dream home in our dream neighborhood and 1 short month later we moved in. Erin was a great help and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for that new place to call home.

      - Joey L, Sun Prairie, WI
    • Erin is the best! She worked tirelessly to help us purchase our first home. We had certain specifics and she was able to find us a home that met almost all of our criteria. She helped us deal with a difficult seller and less than stellar agent. I cannot comment on the negotiation of the purchase price; I'm not sure there was one. There was, however, good negotiations for issues with the townhome and we were very happy with the final outcome. I would not hesitate to contact her in the future.

      - Buyer, Madison, WI
    • Erin is a wonderful Realtor with the patience of a saint. We were between jobs and did not have a huge budget to work with, but Erin took a lot of time showing us a number of homes until the right one became available. Erin is a very pleasant person and hands down the best realtor we've worked with. We couldn't recommend her more!

      - Buyer, Madison, WI
    • If you are looking for a positive and personable realtor, Erin is your gal. We were impressed that she listed our condo for more than what we thought we could get for it. She kept us informed on how showings went as soon as she knew. Even if she was out of town for business or family time, we were always aware of how to get in contact with her. We can't thank her enough on how quickly and smoothly the sale of our condo went.

      - Seller
    • We loved working with Erin. She was very helpful and responsive. I felt that Erin really listened to our concerns and helped us get the best deal for our home. Buying a home can be stressful, but we felt that Erin kept us informed of all of the steps in the process and addressed any issues immediately (even late at night). We would highly recommend her!

    • My husband and I started looking for our first home while I was 7+ months pregnant. Needless to say, our time and energy were elsewhere and the idea of house hunting/negotiating was daunting. Enters Erin with her real estate savvy and bubbly personality. Her knowledge and organization removed the stress of buying a home for me and my husband. She helped us find a place we love at a great price. We closed on the house just 2 weeks after our son was born. During that time, Erin took care of much of the communication and paperwork to give us uninterrupted family time. She is a smart, accommodating and skilled professional as well as a sweet and compassionate person. We were fortunate to find her!

    • Simply stated, Erin is fabulous. She responds immediately to texts, e-mails, and calls, providing us uneasy first time homebuyers with great information and advice. Despite my numerous questions, she was extremely patient and eager to please. After we closed, I gave Erin a huge hug and, despite the excitement of our new home, I was sad to knwo that I wouldn't get to chat with Erin all the time anymore. We truly think of her as a friend.

      - Amber S, Madison, WI
    • We worked with Erin to find a lake home for several months. She was great in developing leads to possible home and helping us avoid a disastrous purchase after we made an offer on a home. That home was shown to have major defects after we had an inspection. Her skillful negotiation with the seller's agent helped us end the deal with a full refund of our earnest money. We continued to work with Erin in our search and have found her to be resourceful and ethical in all our dealings. As our buyer's agent, she worked hard on our behalf. We think she's the greatest.

    • Erin was awesome from start to finish. I liked a home I found on Zillow and was moving from out of state so I did not have a realtor of choice. She showed up as a realtor on the sidebar and I picked her because she had good reviews and looked really friendly. When I called her, she listened to my story and what we were looking for. She even shocked me by telling me that she does a program called Homes for Heros, in which since my husband is a Vet, she donates 25% of her commission back to us to purchase our home. I picked the right person for sure. Once we got into the state, she promptly set up showings for us. She was very knowledgeable of the area we were looking at and very helpful while touring homes with all the questions we had. We put in an offer on the house we wanted and she even helped us to include extra items we would like in our offer. Our offer was accepted! She was there for the inspection of the home, and throughout the whole process answered all my crazy questions promptly via email and phone. She even got our lender to eliminate some closing fees so that we would not owe at closing. She worked HARD for us, and I would hands down recommend her to anybody!!!!

      - Buyer, Arlington, WI
    • Erin was recommended to us by some friends and we connected immediately! Erin is friendly and confident. We had a very positive experience and quick results!

      - Seller, Madison, WI
    • We listed our home with Erin, and couldn't have been happier that we had her as our realtor. We just love her!She and her stager did an awesome job preparing our home for listing. It was really amazing! Erin spent so much time helping to make our home picture perfect, including providing some of the decors herself. It's very obvious how much she cares about her clients. She was so easy to work with, and was quick to return calls or texts about anything, and always cheerful and friendly.We were happy with the whole home selling process from the day we signed with Erin until the day we closed on the house.All in all, we would give Erin a 10/10 and would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

      - Seller, Poynette, WI
    • We found Erin's contact information through a Homes For Heroes program flyer and she did not disappoint! She is professional but also very friendly and down-to-earth. We immediately felt extremely comfortable with her and continued to throughout the entire process. Erin is very knowledgeable about real estate and we whole-heartedly trusted her. She offers suggestions and assistance but is never pushy. I had numerous questions and she promptly, and patiently, answered all of them. She was there with us every step of the way, both on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. She explained everything and always kept us updated of next steps. Best of all, she sold our house in 3 days for $15,000 more than we anticipated! We would use Erin again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing realtor!

      - Buyer/Seller, Arlington, WI
    • Erin was Fantastic to work with in every possible way. She went above and beyond the call of duty and did way more than she technically had to. I was purchasing my first home and she wanted to make sure it was perfect for me and that I wouldn't regret it in the long run. When problems arose (such as the seller trying to back out of signed agreements) Erin told me not to worry that she would make everything happen that the seller originally promised even if it meant spending money out of her own pocket. I can personally say based on my experience with her she is not in it for the money but rather to make people's dreams and envisions come true. I will not hesitate to contact Erin in the future when I need to sell this home and purchase my 2nd.

      - Buyer, Madison, WI
    • Erin is an amazing real estate agent and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or to sell their home. She helped us sell our condo in a very overcrowded market (at one point there were six condos for sale in our development) and went above and beyond to make sure that we were able to get the best price possible for our home. She even went so far as to bring in a home stager and brought her own belongings into our home to help us stage it so we could sell faster. On the buying side, her expertise was invaluable. The home we purchased wasn't even on our list of homes to look at, because the pictures didn't really do it justice online, but she recommended that we take a look at it and it ended up being the perfect neighborhood and home for us. When it came to negotiating the price she spent time researching comparable home values in our neighborhood, which gave us assurance that the price we were paying for our new home was more than fair and I still feel that we paid exactly what we should have after living in our home for close to three months. She also made the selling and buying process absolutely seamless for us and I didn't feel rushed or overly stressed during the process because I knew she had everything taken care of.

      - Seller, Prairie Du Sac, WI
    • Erin was my realtor on my recently bought Condo. We looked at multiple places a week for over a month until I found the perfect place. Erin worked hard to help me find the right place and she worked hard to come to an agreement when closing. Erin research other condo's in the area to find out if the price is right. Erin has a great personality and will help you in any way she can. When I would text, e-mail, or call Erin she would respond immediately and if she couldn't talk at that time she would call me back when she could. Erin made closing super easy. Erin is great to work with and I would work with her again.

      - Bryn C, Madison, WI
    • Erin has help me and my siblings purchase a home in the last year and a half if there's a house you want to see she will make sure that you have an appointment for it when you want to see it. she has great staging team that helped stage my house, its sold within the first five days and we were able to find me a house that I liked within the first few months of looking.

      - Joe V, Madison, WI
    • My Husband and I had a great experience with Erin. We searched for a while and she was very patient with us and helped us along the way and in the end, we found the right home for us!

      - Buyer, Cottage Grove, WI
    • My wife and I immediately recognized Erin as a warm, thoughtful, and extremely competent realtor. It was very clear how hard she works for her clients and made our process of buying a home almost completely painless. As first-time home-buyers, her knowledge and expertise relieved so much of the anxiety and unknowns that we were facing. She was also extremely knowledgeable about VA home loans and various veterans benefits that helped us greatly. We would highly recommend Erin.

Highly HIGHLY recommend and I will use her services for any and all future home sales and home purchases. Period.

      - Seller, Waunakee, WI
    • Erin listed and sold my home. We had many challenges in the journey to which she championed and represented my interests throughout the whole process. She was always there when I needed her. I could not have done it without her. She is friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the Real Estate rules and laws. I would not hesitate to use Erin again for my real estate needs.

      - Seller, Arlington, WI
    • Erin made the process easy and comfortable right from her initial visit to our house. She made things very clear and also stressed that it was not necessary to make any changes to our house prior to listing that we were uncomfortable with. We were able to reach her when needed and also received all necessary information promptly. We sold our house quickly and easily with no hiccups. The process could not have been any smoother.

      - Seller, Cambridge, WI
    • I am very picky about what we were looking for throughout our search and Erin was always responsive (whether by email or phone). Once we secured our home (and we were first time home buyers), she helped us through all of our questions, confusion and kept true to her promises. I recommend her to all potential friends I have looking in the Waunakee area!

      - Buyer, Deforest, WI
    • My family and I could not more pleased with Erin. She is very knowledgeable with the market and how it works. She helped us find our perfect home.

      - Matthew R, Deforest ,WI
    • Erin was wonderful to work with!! Very helpful with the entire selling and buying process, advocate for a client! She helped us sell our first home and buy our next!

      - Seller, Deerfield, WI
    • Erin hit the ground running as soon as we contacted her about our intent to purchase a home. She is very professional, personable and well informed. Erin made the process extremely hassle-free, and was timely with each step required. I would not hesitate on moment in recommending her to any and all people I have the opportunity to do so with.

      - Bob W, Barneveld, WI
    • Represented our family very well through multiple purchases! Was willing to work with our crazy schedule and always had a fun attitude! Thanks Erin!

      - Ty S, De Forest, WI
    • Erin has been so wonderful to work with! She is so approachable and I felt like I could always ask her anything. Her responses are always honest and came so quickly. We learned so much from her that we never even knew was involved in selling a house. From the moment we met, we just clicked. Erin made the process so seamless. And got us an offer in 2 days! We would definitely recommend her to anyone and would definitely work with her again!!

      - Heather D, Madison, WI
    • We have worked with Erin in the home buying/selling process twice now, so that alone says how good our first experience was. Erin is extremely knowledgeable about both the buying and selling process, as well as walking us through the building process this past time. She responds within minutes to my texts and emails and is always thorough in her responses. If she doesn't know an answer she gets back to me within 24 hours with an answer. I would not hesitate to recommend Erin to others and in fact, I have recommended her already. I hope to not move again for many years, but if we do Erin will be my first call.

      - Buyer, Madison, WI
    • Erin was AMAZING! We were first time home buyers looking for a no down payment option. Not being a married couple and 1 veteran meant some extra work helping us understand our loan options between the VA and USDA loan types, etc. She explained it all very clearly and helped us choose the best option for us. She also had an insurmountable amount of patience! It took us over 2 years to find the right starter home and she stayed by our side through it all! If she works this hard as a buyer's agent. I can only imagine the effort she puts forth as a seller's agent!

      - Buyer, Mazomanie, WI
    • As a first time home buyer, the process of buying a home seemed intimidating, until we met Erin. We initially met Erin at a home buying seminar hosted by our local credit union. We were immediately impressed by her knowledge and confidence. Throughout the entire process, Erin was super easy to communicate with (her email/text message response time is like no other!) and felt as though she genuinely cared about us and wanted to get us into the perfect home. She is professional and very easy to do business with. I strongly recommend working with Erin!

      - Buyer, Marshall, WI
    • My husband and I had a wonderful experience using Erin as our realtor to buy our home. She knows the area really well and is extremely open to exactly what you want. She doesn't push her own agenda and truly wants to find you the best home possible. She has great advice on what to do and is very knowledgeable about the home buying and selling processes. She was available whenever we needed her and is very responsive.

      - Buyer, Sun Prairie, WI
    • Realtor has excellent knowledge and was very easy to work with and communicated well with me. Did her best to get me what I wanted and went above and beyond and overachieved!! Definitely would work with her again.
