After leaving the San Francisco Bay Area in 1978, Eric moved to Oregon where he managed some of the finest hotels in Portland and Bend, Oregon, developing an unparalleled reputation for excellence in service, attitude, and hospitality. Prior to that, he was regional manager of a utility company and public relations manager for an insurance company.
Eric performed his first Real Estate transaction in 1994. He continues to set new markets in Central Oregon, and time and again reinforces his knowledge of pricing and market trends. His vast sphere of influence, relentless pursuit of the perfect property, attention to detail, and his love for the process will result in the most fun and worry free real estate transaction you could hope for.
Eric enjoys hiking, golfing, snow shoeing, community theater, foreign travel and lattes with friends. Eric is a Certified Toastmaster, involved with the Bend and Prineville Chambers of Commerce, and is a volunteer for Special Olympics.
Once you meet Eric, you will realize just how professional he is, how hard he will work for you, and just how much he loves the real estate profession, as well as life itself!
I have generally refrained from speciallizing in a specific area of Real Estate, preferring to keep my opportunities open in all areas. I have brokered first time home buyers, vacation home / second home deals, commercial properties, business only sales, and am as diligent and passionate in every deal from the $90,000 purchase to the $1,250,000 sale. If I were to name an area of expertise, it would be in offering a positive take on the market and business environment, my knowledge of the unique attributes of each area within Central Oregon, and my abilities to keep a deal in contract from acceptance to closing. I find the fun and humor in every situation and have developed life long loyalty from clients and fellow brokers.
I have a positive approach to the market and generally ignore the media's alarmist slant. This is a fun business! I find the humor in every situation. Oh, and I love paying 35% referral fees!
