Going Above and Beyond the Job

During the first 6 months of starting her real estate business, Erica designed her own website, designed her own business cards and open house signs, and targeted her sphere of influence with confidence and determination. Shortly thereafter, Erica was writing offers and closing escrows left and right. I gave Erica the freedom to express herself, and be "Erica, a proud US Veteran." Erica has since succeeded in areas where most agents fail.

A Commitment to Developing Professionally

She is very motivated, has many referrals due to her excellent customer service. She has closed eight escrows in just her first year of practicing real estate! Also, Erica is very ethical and trustworthy in everything she does. Once you get to know Erica, you know you can trust her! She is an exceptional young lady!

A Focus on Customer Service

If a client has an objection to the property, Erica will find a way to remove the objection and make it work. She is a problem solver. During her short career (she started in April 2017), she has had to learn quickly how to handle a foreclosure property, a Probate Sale, how to write a PMM (Private Money Mortgage), a 1031 Exchange, manage a cash offer for vacant land, and numerous VA loans. Most agents do not have this incredible range of exposure to so many different clients. Erica was able to tackle and get through each challenge!

Contributing to the Community

20 years of service in the military, moving from one country to another country, while raising a family with two children. She has endured a tremendous amount of sacrifice for her country and family. After retiring from the military as a sergeant, Erica came to work for Realty By The Sea, where she has excelled as an agent and dedicated wife and mother. Erica knows how to get the job done. She is not afraid of getting her hands dirty, she is an example of today's modern woman, that is dedicated and very hard working. She is a self-starter, who has done more in six months than most agents accomplish in years. She is a true professional and will go very far in her career. She once told me: "Compared to combat when I was in the Army, [real estate] is a piece of cake!"
