"She is hard-working, detail oriented, a pleasure to be around, and somehow makes you feel like you are her only client!" - Rose G.

"Unbelievable positive experience working with Erika. We were first-time home buyers with two small children and a third on the way who had no idea how to approach buying a home. Erika made it all understandable, painless, and worrry-free. She is usually involved in much bigger home purchases than ours but you would never know it by how she treated us! Even came to our house on a Sunday to get the final paper wok notarized so we wouldn't have to haul the kids somewhere else!" - Ryan AC.

"Erika has deep knowledge of Woodside, Atherton, PV and other markets. She’s lived here for decades and has seen numerous market cycles. She’s a terrific negotiator and super easy to work with. I’ve both bought and sold with her. Top notch!" - Steven D.

"Erika represented the seller of a property that my buyer purchased in Redwood City. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable - a pleasure to work with." - Helen G.

"Erika is the best and we can’t imagine why anyone would work with anyone else. She is smart, knowledgable, part of the community, honest, straightforward, fun, funny, productive, effective and successful. What more can I say? I can say that she is not only the consummate professional, but someone you’d like to have as a friend. My husband and I realized, going through a house sale, how important it is to actually “like” as well as respect your agent. Erika puts in 150% - always answers a text or a call, shows up when she doesn't have to, shares in your excitement and pending life change, and is an all around great person. And she loves our dog, Cindy Lou. And our dog loves her." - Robin S.

"Erika has managed multiple real estate transactions for us throughout the Bay Area. She is a consummate professional and approaches her clients with perfect balance and keeps their interest front and center in everything she does. Professionally, Erika has quite simply earned our unqualified trust and respect. She is our first call for anything “real estate” related. Personally, we also consider Erika a dear friend. And one who has the unique ability to manage those two worlds without issue." -Tracy Z.

"Erika is the realtor you need, she is smart, has an a amazing work ethic, honest, and knows the Silicon Valley real estate market like no other. She has assisted me in several transactions, and there she was gone so far beyond my expectations, I can’t thank her enough. Erika is a long time resident of San Mateo County, and really knows and loves our wonderful community. She sold our Woodside home for an amazing price, and handled the whole transaction with the utmost professionalism. When we were ready to buy again, she assisted us on buying side, and made sure we got the house of our dreams at the best possible price." - Ruth W.

"I cannot begin to tell you how lucky I feel that we found you to work with. I know that we (especially me) were not always the easiest to work with and that we were always changing our minds. You were there to guide us when we needed it and mother us when we need that too. We are so happy with both the sale and purchase of our homes and we know that we could not have done it without you. You treated us like family which I hope (for your sanity) was greater for us than your usual clients. We will forever be thankful for all of your help!" - Dan I.

"Erika — How lucky I feel that you came into our lives. You are a different soul in the countless ways in which you are willing to give yourself to others. Your generosity, genius, kindness, sternness, humor and grace are a rare combination from which my family benefited greatly. We’re in a different life thanks to you. And after traveling around with you weekly for months, it’s so clear others feel the same about you. Thank you for entering our lives." - Sally G.
