“Eric is a very charismatic, competent, knowledgeable professional. This was the second house he had sold for us. He is a great asset to your agency.”
Barbara Burka, North Bethesda (Seller)
“Eric helped me sell my condominium in Rosslyn and buy a house in Cherrydale in what has to be the most competitive real estate market in Arlington's recent memory. With a full-time job and a 5-year-old at home, I had no time to declutter my condo, much less make it market ready. Eric ensured through a careful analysis of the market and strong negotiating skills that I got more money from that sale than I would have thought possible based on my review of the comps in my building. He also was there in every pinch, including personally going to Home Depot, picking out and then installing a new toilet when mine cracked and broke the day before my buyer's walk-though inspection.
Eric then helped my find the house of my dreams, in Arlington, on the heels of Amazon's announcement and the resulting skyrocketing prices and lack of inventory. He became quickly attuned to the rapidly changing market conditions and made sure that my bid would meet all the conditions necessary to obtain the house I loved, notwithstanding the 7-way bidding war it took to "win" it. And in the months before that, he traveled with me to numerous houses, and used his practical construction background to point out deficiencies in houses that looked beautiful to the uneducated observer but were ripe for drainage and other problems. He also would not let me bid on a house I strongly considered but did not love (even after making him go three times) because he knew I would regret a decision made out of desperation.
Eric maintained open and consistent lines of communication with the realtors involved in both of my transactions, ensuring that both of them went incredibly smoothly.
If you are looking for a realtor who will take the time to listen to your unique needs, help you find the house of your dreams, keep you from being your own worst enemy, and go the extra mile (including replacing your toilet at the last minute) -- look no further than Eric Solomon! ”
Emily Miller, Arlington (Buyer)
“I have bought and sold a half dozen properties over the course of my life. Eric was, by far, the most helpful and hard working agent I have ever worked with. He personally assisted with the preparation of my property for sale and when a last second plumbing crisis occurred the day before the walk through, Eric dropped everything he was doing and (toolbox in hand) personally arrived at the property to fix the problem. In the end, Eric sold my property for more than I ever expected to receive--after it was on the market less than three days! Outstanding knowledge, service and results...that was my experience with Eric.”
Kevin in Chantilly (Seller)
“Eric is an extraordinary sales agent and throughout the entire sales process consistently went above and beyond. Eric handled every detail of the sale of my home and provided valuable guidance on how to maximize my home's value. Through Eric's leadership, the sale of my home occurred faster than anticipated and the price paid exceeded what I expected by 10%. I would highly recommend Eric to any buyer or seller who is seeking an agent with exemplary character that consistently advocates on their behalf.”
Rebecca S, Tampa (Seller)
“Eric was absolutely great to work with and we felt lucky to have him as our agent. He was very knowledgable and helpful. He watched out for our best interest and tried to make sure we made the best decision. He gave his honest feedback and was patient. He went out of his way to help us out after we purchased as well. We'd recommend anybody to work with Eric with no hesitation and in fact we are working with Eric again for another transaction. We'd not work with anybody else. ”
Gokhan U. MA (Buyer)
“Eric made the process easy, stress free, and he got a great result. I highly recommend working with Eric!”
Steven Lavender (Seller)
“Listing, selling and moving out of my first house wasn't easy. Eric provided constant communication, walked me through the selling process, helped the house sell quickly (for a good price), and even continued working with the new buyers to make sure my needs were met.
I strongly recommend Eric. ”
Ethan Pittleman, Arlington (Seller)
“Eric Solomon is a true professional. He is the most superior real estate agent we have ever dealt with. His knowledge, attentiveness, expertise, & his charismatic personality are all qualities that make him such a dynamic agent. Selling our house in 2 1/2 weeks was all due to Eric’s responsible actions. He is an asset to your company and should be recognized for his superior expertise.
He is a superlative realtor”
Steven & Barbara Burka, McLean (Seller)
“We had worked with Eric Solomon a few years back when we essentially did a For Sale By Owner of our condo and he was representing the buyer. We were so impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, and character, we just knew he would be the best match for us when it came to purchasing a home this spring.
It was the best home buying decision we could have made.
Eric was on the ball, all day every day. He was proactive every step of the way, and was available both in person and via phone/email almost instantaneously. Eric always took the time to go above and beyond in discussing and working through all aspects of the home buying process with us. At no time did we ever feel that his commitment was anything less than 100%.
Just about every time we finished a phone call with Eric, one of us would say: Eric is the best.
Eric has the experience and expertise that home buyers need in this competitive market. If you want the best of the best on your side of the transaction, look no further: Eric Solomon is it.”
Chris & Jaime Thompson -- Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“Eric did a fantastic job getting the house ready. His attention to details was important and contributed to the final sale. Many thanks to him for the help.”
Heather Herndon (Seller)
“I've had the pleasure of working with Eric Solomon on both family real estate and personal real estate transactions spanning 15 years. I can say without reservation that he has no equal in the DC area, for the following reasons:
* Eric performs deeper and wider market research analysis than anyone in the industry.
* Eric never takes short cuts - he does everything the right way, and his thoroughness is evident in every aspect of his work.
* Eric has an amazing depth of expertise and knowledge spanning every corner of real estate, and it is simply unequaled. As an example, take a tour with Eric of a house for sale - come prepared to take notes because he won't stop at describing the more general characteristics of the house. What you will see from Eric is a real time evaluation of details that he can see, drawing from past experience as a builder and developer.
* Eric is always there for you. Every word he says and writes is honest and thoughtful.
* Eric's only priority is what’s in the clients’ best interests and addressing what his clients want.
* Eric is the ultimate professional - timely, reliable, and accurate.
Kevin Thompson, Arlington (Buyer)
“Eric Solomon is clearly an expert in every aspect of the sale process. His communications were always clear and timely. He has a wonderful personality and was fun to work with. My experience was smooth and easy from the start. I can honestly say that Eric made it stress-free. I feel that I got the best price possible for the house we sold and it sold quickly. You can't ask for more than that!”
LJNevares, Arlington (Seller)
“Eric is the man! I couldn't ask for anything more from an agent. He understands how difficult things can be for active duty service members and he accommodates. His local knowledge and expertise was critical in the selection of my home. In the future I have no doubt I will be using Eric again in the future. ”
Tyler Sweet, Alexandria VA (Buyer)
“Eric consistently delivered in all aspects of our purchase. He's the best.
Eric is our Agent for life. Will never go anywhere else.
He's #1 in my book. Would highly recommend to everyone I know.”
Will Lattanzio, Arlington (Buyer)
“Eric Solomon was extremely thorough in all aspects of this sale, from helping us get the house ready to show, to carefully pricing the house for a desired timely sale to helping us get moved out in time for settlement. Since we hadn't moved in thirty-eight years, he was always there to hold our hand during the challenges we faced and there were many. We couldn't have asked for a more professional, caring and supportive agent.”
Susan Pittleman McLean, Virginia (Seller)
“Eric Solomon is like family to my family. I trust him completely with any business matters. He has impeccable taste and is always available no matter what”
Virginia goddard , arlington (Buyer)
“I had been shopping for a condo ever since I moved into my Arlington rental in the summer of 2014. During that process, I met dozens of real estate agents, including Eric, whom I first met when I went to see one of his listings. While I did not bid on that particular listing, we did get to talking, and I was impressed with his candor and knowledge of the Arlington market from the moment we met.
I proceeded to hire Eric as my buyer’s agent in the summer of 2015, and have been very pleased ever since. Eric embodies three qualities that I think are essential in any buyer’s agent:
1) Knowledge of the local condo market and local real estate laws. Eric is intimately familiar with the history of many of the buildings I looked at, which provided me with a lot of insight into the market and resulted in a smart shopping strategy.
2) Excellent deal-making instincts. Eric is quite shrewd in dealing with seller’s agents, and simply put, knows how to get a deal done. He remained a strong advocate for me from the initial bid right through the settlement
3) Responsiveness. I worked with Eric for nearly a year on several different properties before I completed a purchase. He never got impatient, and was always quick to return my calls and take the time to address all of my concerns.
In the end, I purchased a beautiful, somewhat rare condo that ended up in a bidding war, which I won in no small part due to Eric’s advice. If I were looking to buy another property I would hire him again without reservation. ”
Andrew Miller - Arlington, VA (Buyer)
“I am so fortunate to have worked with Eric Solomon on multiple transactions during the last 5 years. Being pressed for time, it is so refreshing to work with a professional who is willing and able to get a transaction completed. Eric recently sold the home my parents had lived in for 40 years. Eric not only provided excellent advise as to what renovations needed to be done in order to maximize their net return but coordinated most of the work. By the time the renovation work was completed, Eric's experience and expertise yielded 9 decent contracts within days of it being listed and it closed two weeks after that. As long as Eric Solomon is available, he will always be my GO TO professional for any real estate transaction! ”
Patrick McNemar, Arlington, Virginia (Seller)
“Eric was great in walking me through the whole process, start to finish. I had toured Arlington with him before and he knew what I was looking for. Once we found my home, we were always talking or emailing (I was overseas), Eric kept me up to date and on track making sure that I was hitting the proper timelines to get to close signing on time.”
Casey Cross, Falls Church, VA (Buyer)
“Eric Solomon is by far the best damn broker in the Notthetn Virginia. He undesrands the needs and requirements of hearing and vision impaired veterans. ”
Chul. Campbell, Alexandria VA (Buyer)
“I would not hesitate to work with Eric again. He went over and above the call of duty. He not only suggested ways to "spruce up" my townhouse to get it ready to sell, he also participated in the clean up by painting, caulking, patching walls, etc. He is stern yet always professional and courteous. He was a pleasure to work with and our cumulative efforts resulted in my townhouse being sold in 2 weeks!! I recommended him to all the neighbors. I cannot say enough on his behalf and a job well done!!”
Dana Short, Alexandria, VA (Seller)
“Eric had worked with my friend Virginia Goddard on the sale of her Alexandria condo. She highly recommended him to me.
Eric was quick to market my condo and the photos and advertising that he produced were excellent. He communicated with me at a high level throughout the sale and ensured that the buyer was on track to close on time.
Very personable and a very hard worker. I didn't have to follow up once with Eric, as he was always on top of everything.
Thank you Eric, for making a very stressful experience an easy and pleasant one!”
Mary McCartney, Arlington, VA (Seller)
“Eric Solomon recently helped make buying our first house easy and stress free. He provided consistent support throughout the process and always kept our best interests in mind. His knowledge of home improvement pricing was very helpful for negotiating after our home inspection. We highly recommend Eric and will work with him again. ”
Jessica in NoVa (Buyer)
“My husband and I have sold many properties over 40 years in Northern Virginia and Maryland. I can easily say Eric Solomon was the most helpful and most professional agent we have used in all these sales. He was hands on concerning preparation of the unit for sale, often stepping in to do work on his own to save time and avoid additional costs to us. His advice was crucial in determining the preparation of the unit to appeal to the largest selection of buyers. I would highly recommend Eric to quickly sell any property.”
Toni Roche (Seller)
“I was purchasing my first home and Eric made it a smooth and stress-free experience. I met him back in November and had my sites set on one particular neighborhood but nothing that met my requirements was for sale. It took a few months and some work from Eric, but he found me the perfect home that had everything I wanted and was in my price range. The house wasn't on the market, it was put up for rent, but Eric was able to make it happen anyways. Once we found the place, I was able to close in less than 30 days and as of March 31st I am a proud home owner!
Working with Eric was a true pleasure and I feel like I have found an agent that I would come back to without a second thought!
