"We really enjoyed working with Erika to find a home in Bellingham! She was knowledgeable about the market, had great negotiation skills and always had our best interest in mind. She was able to find us exactly what we were looking for in a very timely matter! We really appreciate all the hard work she put in to finding us the perfect home. We highly recommend her and are so grateful she was referred to us!" - Katy
"I used Erika to purchase my first place, a small condo in Bellingham. I linked up with her, as I had with other agents, because she was the suggested contact for a property that I found. Overall, I met with about 5 agents in my purchasing process and Erika was my favorite. She was laid back, wasn't pushy, and didn't try to speak on topics that she wasn't an expert on. She went to bat for me during the negotiations and made sure that I understood some of the important legal lingo. She even followed up with me on multiple occasions, post-purchase, to see how things were working out. I'd highly recommend her." - Lauren
My approach to the client-agent relationship is hands-on and consultative: you’re the one making the important decisions, while I am beside you every step of the way, guiding you with useful research and carefully managing all the logistics until you reach your goals. To that end, every new relationship starts with a strategy session so I can fully understand your priorities and goals, because that is the only thing that matters.
Being an effective consultant means putting in the time and effort required to provide timely updates and useful insights about the market. Knowledge is power, so I constantly research the national economy and the local marketplace. I have also continuously worked to improve my skill set; earning the Certified Negotiation Expert and Global Luxury Specialist designations are just a few examples.
I have lived in 5 different left coast communities, and I believe Bellingham is simply the best. We have it all here: beautiful mountains and a gorgeous coastline, all within an easy driving distance. Helping people acclimate successfully and ensuring they find the perfect home and lifestyle to match with their individual preferences is a constant motivator for me.
As an agent who has consistently ranked in the top five percent of the Whatcom County market, I like to think the results I provide for my clients speak for themselves. If you’re thinking about making a move or just want to go over what options might be available to you, please reach out with a text, phone call or email—whichever is your preference.
I would love to connect with you and share my lifetime’s worth of local knowledge to help you achieve your goals. I look forward to the opportunity to earn your trust and repeat business.
