“Selling a house, no matter how many times you have done it, is a highly emotional experience.”

Selling a house, no matter how many times you have done it, is a highly emotional experience. Erika Johnson and Joe Koscal made the sale of my home a positive experience, on a financial and a personal level. From day one, I knew that I was working with individuals who would be my strongest supporters but would also serve as the important reality checks necessary in the process. Erika and Joe’s marketing plan focused on capitalizing on the qualities that have always made my house a HOME, while also presenting it in the most effective manner possible in a highly competitive market. I truly appreciated how they respected my sense of what made MY house a home, while encouraging me to see through the eyes of the buyers and what needed to be done to see my house as THE BUYERS home. Their marketing advice, from starting asking price to target audience to the necessary preparations for selling was spot on. As I approach my closing date, I know that Erika and Joe were crucial in achieving the price I needed – while also incredibly helpful as I personally processed the sale of my home. If you want realtors who will give you sound realty advice while providing personal support along the way, than I can think of no better people than Erika Johnson and Joe Koscal.

“Knowledge of the local market is amazing”

Erika did a great job selling our home. Her knowledge of the local market is amazing allowing her to give best advice on selling your home with regards to your competition, pricing and staging your home to best appeal to potential buyers. We received 2 offers within the first couple of days and ultimately sold to the first offer. She also resolved a stressful situation for us that we had after vacating the home (after moving across the country) when the new buyers wanted a refrigerator in the basement removed that would not fit through the doorway.

We can honestly say that we are completely satisfied with the services we received from Erika. She was always ready to help us throughout the process of selling our home that sold in less than a week! Very professional and easy to reach. It was a pleasure working with her.

“Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value.”

Erika represented my wife and me on the purchase of our home and the sale of the home. She proved to be the ideal counselor, advocate, and market expert on both ends. She listened to our desires, asked thoughtful and pointed questions, and advised us on the proper path. During the negotiation phase, she was able to provide advice and direction on various repairs and refurbishments. Her insights and recommendations during the searching phase and the negotiation phase were proof that she listened and understood our goals. On the sale of our house she was direct and prepared. Her grasp of the market was right on point. She had done her research and it showed. I wish she could represent us on every transaction we have in the future. She proved her worth time and again to us.
