My husband and I recently purchased our new home in Cambridge with Erik as our realtor. Erik was professional and courteous, but most importantly to us, helpful. This was not our first home purchase, but it was our first in the Commonwealth where the processes are quite different than where we were coming from. Erik guided us step by step and, because of his calm understanding of the complicated process, eased our anxiety about it. We definitely recommend Erik to anyone, but especially to first time buyers or those buying first time in Massachusetts.
