We had the pleasure of working with Eric on selling our property as well as purchasing a new home. It was our first experience with him and definitely will not be our last. During the entire process can be stressful but he has reassured us every step of the way. Eric’s communication was great and super quick on responses which is a must when it comes to making one of the biggest purchase of your life! He kept us up to date with the sale process and he was detailed on every aspect of the sale. His attention to detail and calm demeanor is definitely an asset that many realtors do not possess. He was extremely thorough on explaining the features of each home we have looked at and at no point were we ever felt pressured or rushed. You can tell he loves what he does and he takes really good care of his clients. We will be 100% referring him to our friends and family. Thanks so much Eric!

Kris is a consummate professional and such a delight to work with. His passion for helping others is evident, and he puts a premium on relationship-building. We were contemplating a move from Vancouver, and corresponded with Kris for several months before meeting in person. His expertise and knowledge of the island and housing market are impressive; he answered questions promptly and thoroughly with consistent follow up. There was no sales pressure at any point, and we appreciate how genuine Kris is, and how often he goes the extra mile! Kris’ professionalism, client-centered focus and affable nature are among his many fine traits. In a volatile market, he matched us with our dream home at a fantastic price within a few weeks of our first island visit. Highly recommended!

Having sold a condo and purchased a house this summer through Eric Smith, my partner and I got to spend lots of time in meetings, emailing and on the phone with Eric. The model of professionalism, Eric came through for us again and again. Between calling the city to track down specific bilaws, always giving us his full attention no matter how busy he was, and answering my countless emails until late in the evening, Eric was consistently courteous, patient and an absolute pleasure to work with. I can honestly say that the realty portion of our sale and purchase was the least stressful part of our summer, and I would whole-heartedly recommend Eric to anyone even beginning to think about real estate.

I’d say that we’ll go back to Eric when the time comes to sell, except that he helped get us into our dream house so I don’t see us getting back into the market anytime soon! Eric – thanks again for everything!

He was very personable and honest. He gave me his card and told me we could take all the time we needed and offered to start showing us homes at our leisure. We spent the next few months looking at many properties from Sooke to Sidney, Shawnigan Lake and as far as Cobble Hill. He was very skilled at lining up these showings and very efficient with the coordination required to make them happen. He never pressured us to list our house, but continuously updated us with current market conditions. When we finally decided to list, it was our absolute pleasure to obtain Kris’s services as our realtor. His advice as to what to do and what not to do to list our home was sound and in hindsight absolutely correct in every way.

Eric is an outstanding Realtor. In life, you occasionally come across people that have found their true calling, and Eric’s is Real Estate. He is knowledgeable, reliable, dedicated and determined. He gives excellent advice when it comes to buying or selling your home. We are incredibly happy that we decided to choose Eric to list our property, and we will choose him again in the future to sell our next home; we wouldn’t trust our property sale with anyone else.
