I love real estate. As a kid, I had a relative who built houses and I hung around building sites and explored homes in various stages of construction. It was mysterious to see the guts and fun to watch houses get made. 

Ten years ago I came back to real estate, went pro, and still love it. I've sold over 350 homes since.
 
So when you contact me, you'll talk to me personally, not a team. Not my assistant or the fresh-from-training newbie. I'm always on call (or text) at 612-220-1191 and I work all over the twin cities metro area.

I keep on top of the market with an eagle eye on what's happening. I personally step through a thousand front doors a year. Think about this...as a home buyer, the service of any individual agent costs basically the same. Why settle for less knowlege or ability?

What makes a difference for buyers and sellers is an agent with energy, experience, and dedication to customer service to help them with the largest transaction of their lives. Sure, we all love the show House Hunters, but it's just not as simple as a half-hour, three home tour!

Nominated 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 as 'Super Agent' by Mpls/St Paul Magazine for excellence in customer service.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in New Brighton, MN.

Erich was very helpful in pointing out important features of a home for our family that we didn't think of on our own.

He helped us thin the field of available homes, but when we wanted to dig a little deeper on our own he gave us access to as much information as we wanted.

Erich was not afraid to disagree with us, which we loved. He would debate the merits of a home we liked or tell us why we should consider a home we were dismissing. However, if we still held our opinion after discussing it with him, he would then go to bat for us and do more homework to support our position. He brought incredibly useful experience and perspectives to the table throughout the process.

Erich's negotiation tactics fit our style pretty well. I wouldn't call him a hard-nosed negotiator who lowballs and scratches and claws for every penny. But he does his research and understands the market really well to know when houses are overpriced and when they're priced to sell. With his understanding of the market, he worked with us to put in a somewhat aggressive bid that allowed us to negotiate to a final price that was good for both us and the seller.

If you just want someone to agree with you, then I might not recommend Erich. But if you want someone who's experienced, knows the market well, and who will challenge you a little bit, then I would recommend Erich 100%.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Greater Eastside, Saint Paul, MN.

I used to think that all realtors are created equally. But after actually being in the market for purchasing a house, boy was I wrong! When dealing with real estate, you need a professional. You need someone who knows the area and the market well. You need someone who can look at a house and honestly give you its positives and negatives. You need someone honest, ethical, and aggressive. You need someone that knows how to communicate and negotiate. I'm not the type to normal give someone full marks on a review, but Erich impressed me immensely. He is incredibly skilled at what he does and after seeing everything that goes into being a great realtor, I suspect that there aren't many like him.  More Less

Sold a home in 2014.

Erich Young has been an absolute delight to work with selling our home. He was our top pick for a realtor because of his knowledge of the area we lived in. He knew what to price it at, and it sold after one month of being on the market. I am going to have Erich find us a new home as well because of how great he is to work with.  More Less
