"As a real estate investor, I needed the property to sell as quickly as possible to maximize my profits. Eric did not disappoint. He found a cash buyer and we closed escrow within 2 1/2 weeks of the listing." - Eddie

"Eric was our purchasing agent when we bought our first home. He was very quick and knowledgeable at responding to all our questions as first time buyers, and guided us in the right direction through the process." - Michelle and Scott

"We highly recommend Eric, as he really understands all of the selling and buying nuances of the South Bay – and most importantly, how to get your home sold quickly and correctly!" - Amanda and Jeff

"I can’t recommend Eric highly enough. We found our dream home in Hermosa Beach through Eric. His attention to detail, integrity and tireless work ethic helped close what was an extremely complex deal on a multi-million dollar property. Unfortunately, we were a party to one of those rare transactions that go totally awry. And, in retrospect, feel incredibly lucky to have had Eric by our side. Otherwise, it probably would have turned out very differently. In short, after signing the contract and spending our deposit, the sellers tried to get out of the deal as written. Before anything official happened, Eric had sniffed out the trouble that was on the horizon and took a number of steps that ultimately positioned us for a successful close. We’re now living in our dream home right at the beach and couldn’t be happier. I hope it goes without saying that we recommend Eric with the greatest of enthusiasm and the exceptional job that he did for us." - Ed and Larissa

"Working with Eric made the process much easier to navigate. With his help we were able to get exactly what we wanted. Eric is very professional, knowledgeable about the area, home values, school districts and pays close attention to detail to make sure your wants, needs and concerns are met."

About Eric

As a South Bay native, Eric continues to enjoy many of the same beach community activities he did as a kid. He says, “I have so many fond memories of the Manhattan Beach Hometown Fair, participating in Junior Guards, playing with friends on the Sand Section walk streets, competing in the Six-Man Tournament, and now watching the Manhattan Beach Pier fireworks with my family during Christmas time.” These experiences, along with Eric’s lifelong knowledge of the South Bay, gives him exclusive insight about the area which, in turn, benefits each of his clients when it comes to making great real estate decisions.

There are many advantages that Eric brings to his clients as a real estate broker, it’s his world-class, competitive history. After winning a Gold Medal as a member of the beach volleyball team at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, Eric continued to be a dominant and consistent force on the AVP Tour for the past 16 years. He says “My background as an Olympic athlete resonates well with real estate because as a world-class competitor, I didn’t make excuses. It’s the same for my clients and the gold-medal service I provide to each of them, which includes my attention to details and making sure my buyers and sellers are happy when escrow closes.”

In addition to his exceptional abilities as an athlete and realtor, Eric is a true local community activist and honoree. He is the founder/CEO of Dig for Kids which helps children in inner cities excel in school and volleyball. He was named to the UCSB Hall of Fame, Significant Sig by Sigma Chi fraternity, Mira Costa High School Distinguished Hall of Fame, and inducted to the CBVA Hall of Fame. Eric has personally raised over $1.5 million dollars for kids in need and continues to work towards bettering the lives of others within and outside the Beach Cities. “My favorite thing about the South Bay is the beach community. We’re a town who knows our neighbors and helps each other in times of need.”
