A Minnesota native, Eric was raised the son of a builder and has lived throughout the west Minneapolis metro area all his life. After working in the construction business, Eric studied real estate and was licensed in 2002 and continues to make the Maple Grove and the west metro area his home. He enjoys using technology to market his property listings and to stay in close contact with his clients during a transaction.
Always a competitor in sports, life and business, Eric works hard on behalf of his buyers and sellers, while remaining focused on accomplishing their real estate goals. Over the years, Eric has won several awards for his real estate activities but is proudest of and would rather promote his clients successes.
In addition to being a full-time Realtor, Eric also enjoys an occasional round of golf, wetting a line in one of our local lakes or taking nature photos. An animal lover through and through, Eric and his Labrador retriever Tank can often be found at one of the local dog parks or an ice cream shop looking for a pup cup as a reward.

|Eric was very patient in taking us all around the cities as we debated the benefits of living in each area. Even suggested areas we hadn't considered. He walked us through each phase of buying and selling and leveraged ways for us to financially benefit as much as possible. Should the need arise, we won't hesitate to call on Eric in the future.|
|We choose Eric as I have known him for years and have seen first hand that he has the ability to work hard to ensure that people get their needs met. We wanted a home that was affordable, easy to care for and in a great neighborhood. Eric was willing to show us any house that we wanted, willing to redevelop new lists for us to view and choose from until we found the house we wanted. Eric was always respectful, willing to educate us on what we should expect and what we should do or not do when getting ready to make purchasing agreements. I have recommended Eris to numerous people with all different needs and have always had a positive response from them when I have asked how their meetings with Eric have been. I will continue to utilize Eric as a realtor in the future and as a referral for others when they are in need of assistance in purchasing real estate.|
|I choose Eric Helmers and I could not have been more pleased. With Eric's guidance, I was able to stage and sell my home within the first week! Eric took me to view my competition in my local market allowing my to understand where I needed to be and how my property needed to look in order to be competitive. My competitors are all on the market a month later while I have closed and purchased a new home using Eric. Throughout the entire process, Eric was professional, conscientious and motivated. At times, I actually felt like I was his only client. I found my dream home and Eric was able to show it to me the first day on market and get my offer in first. I know I would have missed out on my dream home if it was not for Eric's efforts.|
|Eric was awesome all around! Straight 10's!|
|I have used Eric as my Realtor several times in the past because of his integrity, knowledge and thoughtfulness in all aspects of both buying and selling homes. I can't think of one area where Eric could improve. The personal home locator and mobile app were very valuable resources in my search for my home and I was 100% satisfied with the service and information Eric provided. He also had great referrals for my loan, inspection and title. I would recommend Eric in a heart beat and have in the past.|
|Great Experience! With Eric's knowledge of the Maple Grove and Plymouth area, along with his detailed understanding of Foreclosures and how banks deal with agents, buyers and offers, we know we bought a great property in Plymouth that we can build equity into immediately. Great job Eric|
|Ron & Beth Praska|
|We chose Eric through a referral from an realtor related to use. Eric was upfront about what we needed to do to sell our home. We followed his advice and sold our home in less than a month. His on-line tour of our home was nothing less than spectacular! I would suggest to anyone who is ready to sell their home, to give Eric a chance as our experience was very positive.|
|Kurt and Mary Jo Anderson|
|In our history, we have made 9 moves due to relocation or move up purchases. Eric Helmers was the most informed, thorough and diplomatic agent we have ever encountered. Simply the best in the business and we have already referred several friends and family to Eric and he has been great helping them as well.|
|Bob & Arlene Fink|
|We immediately trusted Eric from day one and we felt very comfortable that he would get our home sold and find us a new one too. We had a great experience and would not change a thing!|
|Troy & Mindy Timm|
|Eric was the only agent that would sit down with us and explain the what all t took to buy our first house. We were very pleased with the job Eric and his loan officer did and I can't think of anything we would have changed. Eric, thank you very much for making our first home purchase enjoyable and very easy for us!|
|Working with Eric Helmers has been such a delight. He was great at anticipating my questions/concerns and addressing them. I felt that Eric was "on my side" and looking out for my best interests. He did a great job of keeping me informed about what was going on throughout the purchasing process. He worked with the seller and their agent to keep the work orders/clean up on track for closing. I honestly could not say enough wonderful things about Eric Helmers and his brokerage. I will definitely recommend Eric to family and friends.|

|Eric Helmers rocks..... He found us our home with very little to go on and even less on the market to choose from at the time we purchased. He was very attentive, caring and supportive throughout the entire process from start to finish. He also went above and beyond the day of our closing when we had received proceeds from the title company to cover repairs from the seller and while driving down the road, the check blew out the window. Embarrassed, we called Eric and explained what happen and he took it upon himself to speak with the title company and make arrangements for us to get a new check Two days later Eric called us with a replacement check. His service is 5 stars and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor with a strong work ethic, awesome negotiation skills and someone looking out for your needs. He is the one to work with! Thank you Eric….|
|Eric was referred to me by a friend. Eric was always friendly, available and a great listener. What else could you ask for? Eric and his preferred loan officer made the buying process so easy to understand from start to finish. It was so smooth that it did not seam real and I can't believe I am a home owner now! Thanks Eric!|
