About Erik


After working in corporate America for 13 years at Unilever and earning an MBA from the University of Chicago, Erik changed careers to follow his passion for real estate in our great city of Chicago. It has allowed him to combine his earlier engineering background with his sales experience to create a true consultative approach with his clients.

Erik is always known for keeping his clients’ best interests at heart. He has a track record for matching the right people with the right homes and investments and he has gained a reputation for being a true partner in the home buying process. He makes sure his clients always feel comfortable and that they are not rushed into buying something that is not what they truly want, and prides on giving honest, practical advice that helps clients cut through the noise in the market.

Erik has the experience and business acumen necessary to calmly navigate complex situations, communicate effectively with wide-ranging personalities, and negotiate strong positions for his clients. His knowledge and constant monitoring of real estate market trends provides clients with the detailed information needed to make the best-educated decisions.

“This is a service industry and today's clients deserve the best advice available when looking at one of the largest investments they will ever make. It’s my responsibility to take care of my clients and provide them with the best home buying and selling strategies and relevant research to ensure that they are making the right decision for them and their families.”

A native of Michigan, Erik has lived in Chicago for 28 years in various neighborhoods on the north side, including Lakeview, Lincoln Square and Uptown. When not hustling around town for his clients you will most likely find Erik spending time at home with his wife and daughter. He will be figuring out a new way to grill something delicious for friends and family, and every Thanksgiving you can kind find Erik and his daughter dressed up on stage at the Music Box Theater for the Sound of Music Sing-a-long.
