About John

John Eric is a Californian by birth and a Washingtonian by choice. Having grown up in Los Angeles, he headed east for college and never looked back. Upon completion of college, John jumped into the political realm. After working on a presidential campaign, the ensuing Presidential Inaugural Committee, and numerous other political organizations, he transitioned into the media.

Media and marketing flow through John’s veins. Growing up, his father owned a publishing company in Southern California, exposing him to the industry at an early age. He has an extensive background in marketing and advertising in tv, radio, and print, having worked for some of the largest media companies in America.

John’s extensive relationships in the worlds of politics and media made his transition into real estate seamless. John has worked with DC’s most prestigious firms. After twenty years in the business, John is proud to be a founding agent and Executive Vice President and Senior Advisor at Compass in the DC region.

Whether dealing with high-net-worth individuals, politicians, athletes, or media personalities, John is known for his unwavering commitment and discretion, maintaining confidentiality, and delivering exceptional white-glove customer service. His adept negotiation skills and determination to close deals only further solidify his long-standing success. Nurturing relationships is at the core of John's professional longevity.

John's marketing efforts have earned him a remarkable reputation for exceeding expectations, as evident in his exceptional listings and acclaimed self-published magazine, John Eric Home. His dedication and expertise have gained him national recognition from publications such as The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Washingtonian, Northern Virginia Magazine, Washington Life, Capitol File, and Arlington Magazine. Given his expertise in the real estate market and his insightful perspectives on current conditions, John is frequently sought after for his opinions, resulting in his frequent appearances in these publications.

When John isn't immersed in the world of real estate, he cherishes quality time with his family and actively participates in community and social events throughout the DC region. An ardent supporter and advocate for pet adoption, he dedicates his efforts to finding loving homes for animals.

"Be prepared to be wowed. We weren’t prepared. But, boy were we wowed. In the run up to prepare for selling our house, we invited a couple of agents to present to us. From our first encounter, John distinguished himself as a business professional with a business plan. A strategic analysis, supported by a lineup of tactics to accomplish each objective, separated John from his peers. John did his homework. He came prepared with an analysis of the neighborhood, its features and demographics. He shared his marketing plan. Based on his ideas of the target price point, this house will likely appeal to a certain customer profile. John’s team’s marketing plan had a development process for leveraging these known targets. Slam dunk. I didn’t tell John that he had me at this point without yet having had the pricing discussion."

"John Eric is an excellent realtor. We worked with John and his team to purchase and sell several homes in Northern Virginia and are always thrilled with his market expertise and flawless execution. John's attention to detail goes beyond a simple checklist. He takes ownership of the entire process, going above and beyond to help his clients find the perfect home and providing a seamless experience in the administration of documentation and inspections. We always felt like John's most important clients, and he goes out of his way to provide white-glove service and a positive attitude. Additionally, we always felt that we could trust John and his team to keep the process moving, providing incredible peace of mind during what could potentially be a stressful and draining time. We enthusiastically recommend John to any buyer or seller in the DC market, regardless of budget. Thank you John, Trevor, Janis and the entire Compass team!"  - Chip and Ali

★★★★★
"John Eric is incredible to work with; he has strong dedication to his clients, a passion for his work and a commitment to excellence. I have worked with John Eric on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed or let down by my experience. He is very easy to work with and get along with. He took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for and understand what my expectations and limitations were. He puts a great deal of thought and effort into each client. He is very professional, personable, and respectful. I would recommend him entirely." - Cristina M.

★★★★★
"John Eric's knowledge & professionalism were truly outstanding. I highly recommend both John Eric and his entire team. They provided amazing service, information and advice at every step of my home search and purchase." - M. M.  

★★★★★
"John Eric is an outstanding realtor. His team is professional with immediate responsiveness on every detail. John has endless energy to make everything happen. He and his team are helpful with any questions to make every step of the way move smoothly. John’s team also has a pulse on the market to make a sale happen. With our home the sale happened even before the open house! I highly recommend his team if you want the best."  - Clay and Irene 

★★★★★
"John, Janis, and Trevor exceeded my expectations when they helped me sell my home. I thought that I knew the local real estate market very well, but the team has more details and insights that I do, which resulted in a significantly higher sales price than I expected. My home was listed, placed under contract, and sold in two weeks. They are an amazing team and working with them was a pleasure. I will definitely use them again when needed and refer whenever possible.

"John did an incredible job selling our condo in Arlington. He knew the area, the building, and what perspective buyers were looking for and how to reach them. We had renters in our property at the time and he did an incredible job balancing our wishes to sell the property while respecting their privacy and rights. I can’t recommend him and his team (Janis is amazing) enough. They made what could have been a very difficult and cumbersome process/event into an efficient and effective experience. " - Reagan and Clark

★★★★★
"We just completed our fourth transaction with John and are currently in the throes of our fifth. So long as we keep living in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, we’ll have no other realtor! As I wrote way back in 2013 (!!), John is the best at what he does: trustworthy, communicative, with an impeccable pulse on the market and always ready to go to bat for his clients…many of whom become close friends. Five Stars all the way. " - Joseph Katona and Rebecca Hook

★★★★★
"From the outset, John provided us with a proven prescription for success. His multi-point marketing approach, responsiveness, attention to detail, and detailed workplan with milestones enabled us to achieve optimal results during our desired timeframe. Mostly, I was impressed with his ability to:
• Offer an informed analysis and opinion of current regional market trends that was both broad and deep, and included pricing, comps, and market segmentation/buyer demographics.
• Offer innovative solutions to complex problems, especially for preparing our home for sale, and resolving the numerous home inspection items.
• Communicate effectively by providing daily and weekly status reports (both written and oral) for our listing as well as the local market.
• Display interpersonal flexibility in working with our hectic family schedule and other personal constraints.
• Pay attention to detail with staging the home and accomplishing repairs in a timely way.
• Leverage strategic partnerships with vendors in the community to deliver prompt and quality service for maintenance – specifically for the roof, and front/back wood facing. (Rarely would an agent volunteer to troubleshoot home repair issues).
In following John’s blueprint, we were able to successfully sell our home in 30 days during a historically slow season. John exceeded our expectations for service delivery and responsiveness, displayed integrity and honesty throughout the process, and brought true value to the transaction with a positive attitude, result-driven approach, and keeping his word. I honestly can’t say enough good things about John’s performance. We also truly enjoyed working with him because, besides being very talented, he’s also a really nice person. I truly believe that because of his superior service and ability to overdeliver, John is single-handedly raising the bar for your industry. We plan to recommend John to our contacts for their real estate needs, and also plan to collaborate with him on future transactions. One exceptionally satisfied customer.
" - Adriana Zimmer

★★★★★
"Simply put, John goes above and beyond for his clients. From the time we engaged him and his team, we felt like they helped us develop a plan to get our home sold on the schedule and for the price that was agreed upon. The sale of our home presented some unprecedented challenges in the time of COVID, and John continued to do everything required to ultimately meet our goals and expectations for this process. Even after the closing of our home, John has still been as responsive to our questions as he was at the beginning of the process. If you are looking for a realtor, you definitely should consider John Eric! " - Jane and Erik

★★★★★
"John Eric has a proven strategy for selling your house quickly and for the greatest return. The superb John Eric + Trevor Moore team can seamlessly handle every aspect of your move (or as much as you need them to), from pre-planning the sale through to the final close. And with the Compass Concierge program, any owner can quickly present their home in the best possible light. So just shut up now and do what he says! You’ll be glad you did! " - Bruce W.

★★★★★
"John Eric and his team are exceptional. He and his team have helped us with several home sales and purchases throughout the years. You will not find an agent more dedicated to his clients. He is responsive, familiar with the market, dependable, and an excellent negotiator. We can’t recommend John enough. " - Heather and Brian

★★★★★
"John Eric was an extremely knowledgeable, dedicated real estate agent. It was a pleasure working with him and Trevor Moore. They made us feel like they were totally focused on the sale of our condo: advised on how best to prepare the condo for sale, worked with other agents to broadly market the availability of our condo, and successfully executed the sale of our condo in 3 days at full listing price. But their work with us did not stop there. Both John and Trevor worked closely with us until the day our condo sale closed. They went above and beyond the sale process…even helping us to store some of our furniture and move to an apartment so we were prepared to go to closing within a very short time-frame. I would not hesitate to highly recommend both of these real estate agents. " - Maddy and Paul

★★★★★
"You will not be disappointed if you have John Eric represent you in the purchase or sale of a home. I should know as John has helped us sell two homes and buy one over the course of the last 6 years. He is smart, incredibly responsive, and just a really nice guy. He is also honest and insightful. He helped us really narrow down what it was we were looking for in a home without putting any pressure on us to buy quickly. I have recommended John many times to friends and will not hesitate to do so again in the future. He has my unqualified recommendation. " - Eduardo

★★★★★
"My husband and I recently had the pleasure of meeting and using the real-estate services of John Eric. Our experience with him left us in no doubt that he is one of the finest in his field. He is flawlessly organized and has a high professional ethic as well as being a delightful person to work with. Under his exceptional guidance we were relieved the pains one usually experiences when selling their home. John went all out to promote the sale of our home no detail escaped his attention. He was on top of what the housing market was doing in our area, and made prudent recommendations on how to price our property. John also put together a detailed marketing plan and timeline for the advertising and promotion of our home. He created an excellent web site and a color brochure that highlighted all the best selling points of our home. Above and beyond John offered the services of his decorator, for the perfect showing, and also the services his cleaning crew, who took care of those areas that are sometimes overlooked. He then introduced us to his top quality service people, who like John, had first-rate work ethics. These associates took care of all our flooring, painting, heating/cooling and moving needs with great care. Thankfully, if my husband and I were unavailable, John or a team member would kindly meet with the service people in our behalf. In addition, when I mentioned that I had several pieces of furniture and art that I needed to sell he made up a colored sales brochure and presented it to each person who visited our home. Wow if that is not over-the-top, I don’t know what is! John Eric and his team worked tirelessly together, having an open house every weekend until we had a ratified contract. However busy John was, he always was prompt in returning our calls. The entire time John kept us abreast to all the potential buyers that visited our home, along with their helpful comments by way of a feedback system that John devised. This feedback was invaluable in not only obtaining comments, but the level interest of potential buyers and their agents as well. Our experience with John and his team was excellent beyond comparison. He gave us superior service that blew our minds with optimal results. With John’s accomplished guidance we sold our house in 14 days in a downward market. Not only did we get the price we wanted but we sold our house well before the competition down the street. So, without reservation we give our full-hearted recommendation of John Eric’s top-notch services to all our friends and neighbors who are thinking of selling their home. " - Bill and Cindy

★★★★★
"I have been on both sides of the real estate transaction with John — as a buyer and a seller — and there is no one better to represent my interests. John is the “go-to guy” for real estate expertise in the Northern Virginia – DC area. " - Jeff Z.

★★★★★
"John is an extremely conscientious real estate agent. Despite being on vacation when we put in a bid for our home, he managed every aspect of the sale. Even a year after the sale is finished, he continues to advise us on issues we encounter as new homeowners. My wife and I cannot recommend him highly enough. " - Vernon

★★★★★
"John worked tirelessly to secure our home. The sellers agent was unscrupulous and immoral failing on several occasions to follow legal obligations to his clients and the court system, as the property was in bankruptcy court. John discovered and confronted every scheme that was attempted and without fail out maneuvered the selling agent to ensure we got our new home. Though not a big sale, John had laser precision focus and guidance. It is now over a year later and we are exceptionally happy and grateful for his enormous efforts. " - Holly

★★★★★
"John Eric is simply the best Realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. His professionalism and attention to detail are exceptional. He has developed a highly skilled team – from staging to photography to brochure design – to execute his marketing plan. As I recall, we had a contract in 6 days. I would recommend John to anyone who is looking for a great real estate – whether you’re buying or selling. " - Charlie

★★★★★
"John sold two houses for us within a few months and he is amazing! He is dependable, punctual, knowledgeable and knows how to get the job done!!!! We were constantly surprised by his energy, skill and dedication. A highly effective advocate, we always felt he worked for our best interest and would not hesitate to work with him again. " - Sara

★★★★★
"John did a wonderful job of keeping our priorities in mind when helping us purchase two properties over the past 7 years. He strikes a good balance between showing us what we said we wanted to see, and making recommendations based on our preferences. In both cases John showed us properties that I probably would not have found on my own and both have been great purchases for so many reasons. We were very pleased with John’s support throughout the buying process. As for his ability to sell our last place, John took over while we were busy planning our wedding and sold our place 2 days prior to our wedding, he thankfully handled everything. I have recommended John to several friends and will continue to do so in the future. " - Amy

★★★★★
"In a uniquely difficult real estate market, John walked with us every step of the way in selling our home. John was always a consummate professional, providing support when we needed it, the right advice whether we were in a place to accept it or not, and a careful understanding of our personalities and situation. He managed the process each step of the way, particularly to make sure that our transaction closed (despite the fact that we seemed to come across every single bump in the road along the way). We’ve never felt so comfortable with an agent, and would recommend him to everyone and anyone in a heartbeat. We’re thankful that we had the opportunity to work together. " - Divesh

★★★★★
"When I contacted John, he quickly surveyed my Courthouse Hill condo and made several suggestions for easy improvements to increase the sales appeal. He quickly arranged all of the necessary repairs and upgrades. The condo was on the market in under two weeks, with a listing price much higher than I had anticipated. We had an exceptional offer less than 24 hours after listing, and it closed within three weeks. It was an incredibly easy process from my end, and John ably managed all of the logistics. I would highly recommend John Eric to anyone and everyone. I will be a repeat client in the future. " - Lindsay

★★★★★
"We recently moved from Arlington, VA to San Jose, CA. In preparing for this major relocation, we needed to make sure we found a capable and professional realtor to help us with the process of preparing our home for sale and getting it sold quickly and for the maximum amount we could get on the property. Luckily, our neighbor across the street had recently put his property up for sale and had hired a realtor to help him in this process. We watched as the realtor he hired came by numerous times while the house was being prepared for sale. The realtor seemed to be at the house a lot, making sure that the necessary steps were being taken to get the house ready for sale. Once the house came on the market, the house sold within a day. We knew at the moment, we were going to be using this same realtor when it came time to sell our house. The realtor was: John Eric. The day he came over to brief us on his company and what they could offer we were impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, confidence and attention to detail. He immediately told us what to expect and what he recommended we do to get the top dollar for our home. We followed his advice and replaced items he recommended we upgrade. As a result of his recommendations and assistance in getting our home not only upgraded to reflect current buyers tastes, but staged to bring in the most interest and demand, it sold within the first 2 days on the market for full asking price. This was the highest asking price received for homes in our complex since the housing market fell in 2007. We highly recommend John Eric as the preferred agent to handle anyone’s need to sell their house or represent them in buying a new house. We only wish John Eric was out here in California to help us in finding and buying a new home. We give John Eric 12 out of 10 stars!!! " - Pat and Steve
