"Let me start with how I got the house that I finally bought with Eric's help: It came on the market on a Friday night, and I called Eric right after I saw it. He immediately contacted the seller's agent and set up a visit for me on Sunday. Once I made the decision to make an offer on Monday, he helped me put together a preemptive offer and presented to the seller that night. With some back-and-forth, the seller decided to wait for the offer date a week later. Eric then helped me decide the best offer based on my financials, and helped edit a letter I wrote for the owner. A week later, Eric helped me seal the deal by communicating with the seller's agent many times on the offer date. This was not just for the house that I finally bought. Eric helped me make 4 other offers before that. He was always super responsive, and moved swiftly to get things done. This was even more impressive considering I started house hunting when the covid-19 outbreak started in March. As a real-estate agent, Eric was very knowledgeable about the real-estate market in San Francisco, as well as Daly City, Pacifica, and South SF area. I could ask him about any target property, and he could often tell me what the neighborhood was like, and offer his honest thoughts about it. This is because he's helped buy and sell so many properties in these neighborhoods. Eric also understood how stressful the home buying process could be, especially for a first-time buyer like me. He held me through the journey like a close friend. Eric is the kind of agent that you'd love to invite to your new home after you move in. Eric is professional, responsive, trustworthy, and a pleasure to be around. I can't say enough good things about Eric, and I felt very lucky to have him as my real-estate agent."

"I had a steep set of requirements for buying a property, and a low budget for the San Francisco market. Eric showed me multiple properties that could be an option, and didn't mind when they didn't click. He also monitored the market and gave me an overview of where prices were during this unusual time and where they may go, as well as an overview of neighborhoods with good prospects and the amenities I wanted. It took a few months, but he found a property that checked all the boxes, and had just been reduced to fall within my price range. Eric arranged multiple showings for me (during the pandemic!) so I'd be comfortable with making an offer. He walked me through offer considerations and provided some recommendations on how to proceed. Taking his advice, I made a below-asking offer that was accepted ahead of other potential buyers. That's a very difficult path to navigate when buying in San Francisco, and I appreciate his judgment and advice that made that successful offer possible. I'm an attorney and very detail-oriented. I'm sensitive to when someone isn't on top of the details, or fails to execute on them. Eric was deep in the details during the course of the transaction. He knew the answers to all of my questions, responded quickly and clearly, and frequently anticipated the questions I'd ask before they occurred to me. Like any transaction this one had a couple of hiccups. Eric explained the issue, the likely impact, and managed the problem with the sellers. He successfully kept the deal on track, with the final result of an on-time closing. Right before closing, he pro-actively provided the contact info for PG&E, the various internet providers available in my new building, and the contact info for several moving companies, which was a considerate and helpful touch, and much appreciated. I'll certainly work with Eric on my next real estate transaction, and I recommend him highly!"

"It was a pleasure working with Eric. Eric goes above and beyond to provide the best customer experience. He was always attentive and responsive. I felt like he always had my best interest at heart. When the sale looked bleak with COVID, he gave me objective facts and a plan of attack. Even when we were about to close, and there was nothing more he needed to do, he listened to me talk about a complicated lease break situation with my apartment, and he was able to give me alot of perspective on this, outside of his responsibilities as a real estate agent. He was addressing me as a person at need at the time, and I will always remember his kind response as a neighbor and friend. Go with Eric. He will close with professionalism, efficiency and care."

"Eric Li offers the rare trifecta of brilliant strategy, flawless execution, and stellar customer service. He loves strategy (I think of him as the real estate equivalent of a chess master) and quickly developed the optimal strategy for me. This allowed him to be extremely efficient with my time, while providing a level of customer service that made me feel like I was his only client. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, strategic and responsive. Eric leveraged strong relationships he's built across his successful career to help me negotiate an incredible deal in the ultra-competitive San Francisco market. Once my offer was accepted, Eric coordinated with the entire team (seller, loan officer, escrow team, etc. -- all with trusted partners he recommended, which saved me a lot of time) so that I didn't have to worry about anything falling through the cracks. I basically showed up, signed the paperwork, and got my keys. I’ve worked with a number of realtors over the years and Eric is hands down the best. Eric made what could have been an overwhelming process easy and enjoyable. If you're hoping to get the best deal with as little work as possible, Eric is the realtor for you! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

"Eric represented me as the buyer in a recent transaction in SF. He is a pleasure to work with, took time from the early showings and my feedback, to eventually - maybe 3+ weeks - to hone in on a great home for me and at the right price. He knows the area, actually LISTENS to issues raised as we looked at homes together, sent me "possibles" via email that let me process information at my convenience. I commented on the listings and that helped him help me! Then as the deal was going forward, he assisted at every step... the inspections, dealing with changing closing dates and a holdover by the sellers, and then arranging changing of the locks, etc. Every time I reached out - roofer for an inspection, etc. Eric had some options and assistance. I would work with him again in a heartbeat!"
