Eric just recently helped me buy my first home - a condo in Culver City.
I had met with another agent prior to meeting with Eric and was not very impressed. Eric, on the other hand, was very professional and patient; he had a binder full of information for me and we saw several properties on the first day we met. As this was my first purchase, this was a huge decision for me and Eric was very supportive of every decision. He didn't pressure me into making an offer I wasn't completely comfortable with.
I went to a few open houses on my own and when I told him that I was very interested in one of them, he went later to the open house so that he could see it for himself and be prepared for helping me with my offer.
When I found a complex that I really liked, but lost the property to another buyer, he looked at old listings and contacted previous sellers from the same complex that didn't go through with a sale. Unfortunately, I didn't hear back from anyone before I found my condo in a different neighborhood - but I appreciated the effort.
It was great to work with Eric and I would refer him to anyone looking in West LA.
