Sold a home in 2013.
It was a pleasure working with Erich! He knew the market inside and out, knew exactly what we needed to do to make the sale (ultimately saving us from making costly and unnecessary improvements), and looked out for our best interests from beginning to end. Erich brought us an all-cash, near asking-price offer just three days after putting up our duplex on the MLS. He expertly walked us through each step of the process through closing, making himself readily available for any questions that came up. We will definitely work with him again and highly recommend his services. Thanks, Erich!

Kysa, you all were good clients to work with, too. We had a few tricky legal issues to deal with, but prevailed in the end with a successful sale.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2013.
After a really bad experience with a 3-month listing contract with another agent, we called Erich Young because of his presence on Zillow. Believe the 5-star reviews! Erich is the definition of a real-estate professional.

We called him before the Labor Day weekend and he got right to work to have our house listed by Tuesday. The pictures he took of our home made the previous agent look like a kid with a disposable camera.

When you call Erich to work on your listing, you can be hands-off. He knows what to do and is darn efficient too. Erich initiates communication with you at every step and his phone calls aren't annoying because he's a fun guy to talk to!

For personal reasons, we are not able to sell our home at this time - when we discussed this with Erich, he was totally understanding and even offered photos, vendors and advice to help us during our difficult time. When the time is right for us to sell, we will not waste time with another agent and will call Erich right away!

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.

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.

Bought a home in 2013.
Erich was very knowledgeable and helpful all through our home buying process. In addition to the big decisions, he helped us along the way with small but very impactful decisions, like suggesting to us to make a deposit payment when we needed time to think about our decision. This helped secure our new house(they literally had others at the door when we dropped the cheque).

Based on our discussions, he had a very good idea of teh kind of house and community we were looking to be in and he was very helpful with pointed tips when we had questions about the houses we looked at.

Overall we had a great time working with Erich and would definitely recommend him

D - thank you for allowing me to help you with the big decisions. I am thankful for our mutual trust, because without it, you would not be living in your dream home today. Remember, you're the one who ran over to the builder's Medina model, check in hand at my behest, and handed it to them, beating out the other buyer by 30 seconds!!!!!

Sold a home in 2013.
We trusted the sale of my mother's home to Erich and found his expertise and advice to be spot on in every way. His suggestions helped us prepare and price the home effectively. His marketing plan was tailored to our specific needs and worked so well the home sold very quickly - full price in under three weeks! Erich is a true real estate professional in the best sense of the word and we wouldn't hesitate to use him again and recommend him to others.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Audubon Park, Minneapolis, MN.
I was faced with the daunting challenge of finding a buyer for a 100 year old house that was clearly showing its age. Fortunately, I contacted Erich and my worries were over. He confidently took command of the situation and, within a matter of a few weeks, crafted a win-win sale. Erich's process expertise and local knowledge were immediately evident. He recommended improvements that would make the house more appealing,identified the unique selling features of the home ( as well as the area where it was located ), determined an enticing, albeit, appropriate market price and placed it on the MLS. After attracting several prospective buyers, Erich skillfully negotiated a purchase agreement that exceeded my best-case expectations. Closing was a snap! Throughout the preparation,marketing and sale process, I knew Erich always had my best interest in mind. He kept me updated on each offer and was always available to answer questions and, give timely advice. If you are looking for someone to sell your home, Erich is definitely YOUR go-to professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Maplewood, MN.
I found Erich on Zillow. He promtply returned my call and 2 months later I moved in to my new house. Erich, Jenny, Breah, and Edina Realty were awesome to work with. Erich in particular was truly a "Buyer's Agent". He made sure I understand what I'm getting myself into. Also, his negotiation skill is excellent. I was able to by a house worth more than what I paid for - talk about a good deal! He is very good at his job, very professional, honest, and doesn't settle for less. I thank God for him and all the helpful people at Edina Realty who has helped me through the whole process. I am currently living in what I call my First Dream House. I would love to do business with him again and I highly recommed Erich to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!
