Extending his pulse beyond Los Angeles, Eric is acknowledged as a top-producing agent in the greater Palm Springs area, where he owns a second home and holds more than 15 years of real estate experience. This organic expansion of knowledge to areas outside of Los Angeles qualifies him to deliver services beyond the traditional, including relocation services, luxury leasing, providing invaluable insight on various price points, education on sub-markets, school districts, and architectural styles.
This foundation was created in his earlier career at leading Hollywood talent agencies, William Morris and UTA, where he honed his ability to negotiate favorable, creative deals strategically and tactfully for his clientele.
