"This review is long over due for Erika Chavez.
She was honestly a god send for us, after having a rocky partnership with another realtor, I was determined to find someone with the tenacity and strong back bone that would speak on our behalves as first time home buyers. I found reviews on Erika and decided to give her a call, she guided us through good, bad houses and was honest with us regarding our choices. I loved her transparency and the fact that she could also relate to us as Latinos.
We found our perfect home and had her negotiate on our behalf. We went back and forth and not once did she say "well... we will have to offer more... or well.. you may not get it because of your offer..." (I should add we weren't lowballing super low.. we were being realistic based on the condition of the home, comparables and season). She agreed with our offer and contingencies and at the end we negotiated over 10,000.00 below asking price, right before winter. If it wasn't for her, we probably wouldn't be in our beautiful home. We have referred her to other people and will continue to refer her out to others. She is a working mom and that may be why I am very forward with referring, she was very responsive, honest and thorough from when we submitted offer to when we went in to sign. She was there with us to sign our lives away.. she didn't need to but she was there. She would communicate with our attorney and the seller, very grateful.
Erika Sorry this took soo long!! We thank you for everything and thank you for our sweet welcome home gift too!
If you want someone who will be transparent, honest and will fight for you then contact her immediately you will not regret it!"

"Erika was terrific. She was extremely helpful throughout our home-buying experience. This was my first home so there was a lot I did not know. She is very knowledgeable about the whole process and about the areas we were looking in. She graciously answered all our questions, no matter how silly some of them may have seemed. We could not be happier with our new home. We will definitely recommend her to friends and family. Thank you, Erika."

"I enjoyed working with Erika Chavez, she was there all the time helping me get a great new condo at a great price. This was my very first time buying and she even stayed in touch with my mortgage lender to make sure i wasn't paying to much. If you are looking to buy or sell look Erika up."
