About Eric

I've been working as a realtor in Marin County for about 15 years. I absolutely love what I do and am blessed to be able to help my clients achieve their real estate goals. In addition to focusing on the transaction, I believe in creating relationships with my clients, with other professionals in the area and with the area itself. It's more than just neighborhoods and addresses; I know the towns and residents, the schools, parks, shops and cafes. That's all so I can help you sell your home for the best possible price or help find you the ideal place to live.

She understands and helps to the fullest. I would recommend her to any one and especially with difficult or involved transactions. “

"...We found HomeLight, searched for agents with experience, and connected with our agent in one day. She helped us snag a property in a competitive part of town, largely due to her relationships in the area."
