Prior to joining HOM Sotheby's International Realty Eric Bergman worked as a financial advisor at the Tax and Financial Group (TFG), a boutique financial planning firm based in Newport Beach. Eric focused on helping individuals and businesses creatively, using their personal and financial assets to enhance their lives and futures. Since 2003 Eric has been responsible for assisting his clients in the areas of: Investment strategies, Investment risk assessment, Proper Investment allocation and diversification, Financial planning, Estate planning, Tax strategies, and Retirement planning. Growing up in Laguna Beach, one of Eric's first real interests was the unique and awe inspiring coastal real estate that surrounded him. In 2008 he decided to pursue his dream of helping others determine not only their passion for coastal properties, but what homes "fit" their long term needs, as well as helping educate others on the homes he represents.
