Very helpful and professional. Eric provided all documentation, explained everything well, was always available to contact. He was dealing with every other parties involved and contacted us directly only when some information or decision was required on our side. He did a lot of work. Alexander Shirokov
Thank you for helping our family get the house of our dreams. We could not have asked for a better broker to help us through the entire process. From the first time we spoke, you told me that you would be available 24/7 and would make sure you personally answered all of our questions. We certainly put you to the test, as we had a million and one questions, day and night. You surpassed our expectations and we cannot thank you enough. Anyone looking to buy a home, contact Eric Schwartz He is THE best there is. Laura Donaher
“Eric is a diligent realtor. We would not have gotten through this process without his help. Not only was Eric able to navigate a challenging transaction; but he is there with all of the resources we will need to setup and move into our home. From handy men, landscapers, painters, movers and more, Eric had us covered.”
“Eric gets the job done! We sold our house and bought a house which was a short sale and Eric was with us every step of the way. We were especially pleased with Eric’s full range of contacts to help us with all parts of our move.” Aliza Sherman
We first met Eric during his hosting of an open house and was immediately impressed by his passion. It is easy to find a realtor with long and big number track records, but it is hard to find an agent that loves and cares what he/she is doing. Not to say one with impressive track record and sparks in the eyes such as Eric himself. That open house was not a fit for us but the realtor is. Eric is experienced and knowledgeable and he is willing to share his insights along the way. Even though we thought we know enough after buying selling multiple times, believe me, there is still much to learn from a good realtor. He and his team is efficient too. Things can be turned around in extremely short time. On top of knowledge and efficiency, Eric simply gets it. After a few conversations, Eric could precisely grasp our preferences and our value proposition and then put himself in our shoes. He will do his homework and provide listings or other information just as we needed. This saved a boat load of time and back and forth. It is like having another you but loaded with well informed real estate knowledge to aid you making sound decisions and to avoid costly mistakes. Most importantly, Eric puts your interest first. While working with him, you can feel that he cares and all his judgement or recommendations were based on the client’s benefits. We were at ease to have Eric act on our behalf. We felt safe and confident with him representing us around every corner of the process. Thank you Eric for getting us our dream home! Bo Zhang
“We bought a house in 2011 for which Eric was the sellers’ agent. He was great at showcasing the house under its est light without ever overselling the features. His knowledge of the market gave us much confidence, to the extent that when we went abroad in 2014 we used Eric’s services to rent the house while we were away. He did a fantastic job advising us on the rental and we found great tenants immediately through him. Eric has been with us all the way from planning and making decisions down to helping with tactical steps of getting the house rental ready and welcoming us back to the house and the states.” Benoit Massal
“Eric helped me find my first home, and could not have been a better realtor. He was detail oriented and followed through to make sure all of our needs were met. Highly recommend him for anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.” Daniel Spicehandler
“Eric is a pleasure to work with! He’s extremely friendly, very smart, and focused on his clients. I recommend him to all my friends in the area!” Cheryl Fradin
”Eric is one of the best real estate salesmen I have worked with. He was always available and did extensive research to find homes which met our criteria. I also trust Eric to negotiate the best price and fairest terms while following our lead on issues.” John Accardi
“We had a great experience purchasing our first home. Even when issues came up from the seller’s side, Eric quickly found a solution. The agency really looks out for their clients, they always respond very rapidly to all inquiries or requests.” Linas Sausaitis
Eric is terrific agent with a with a great knowledge of price, market and buyers. He, and his team, work hard and smart for sellers and buyers. And, he is great with customer service, providing or recommending all of the services needed for the transaction. Gene Chollett
Eric, congratulations on your ranking among the 100 most influential real estate agents! You are a true professional and I’m proud to have you on the Weichert team. Best wishes for your continued success.Jim Weichert
Eric is terrific. He advised us on selling our home and buying our current home. Eric is ethical, fully available for his clients, a problem-solver, very knowledgeable about market conditions and keenly focused on a smooth path to closing. I would work with Eric again in a heartbeat.
Dear Eric,Chaya and I would like to thank you for a fantastic job you have done in selling the house on 25 Crest Circle. Let us just say that you are a very accomplished realtor and a great human being. You witnessed our special situation and did your best under the circumstances. We will definitely communicate our appreciation for your work with the Weichert management. Best regards Chaya and Haim
I highly recommend Eric Schwartz as a real estate professional. He is experienced, knowledgeable, thoughtful and responsive. Most importantly, he will deliver! Nikolaos Tezapsidis
Eric is a pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Eric know the Real Estate industry and was also able to use all his resources and provide professional industry contractors that we needed to help fix our house to prepare for sale. Eric was always helpful and went above the call of duty to help me and my mom sell our family home when my father passed away. I highly recommend Eric. Ed Lamhing
Eric was a pleasure to have as our agent while buying our home in a desirable town in New Jersey. His personality is affable, and he is a very easy gentleman to get along with. He is up to date on the knowledge of the local real estate market, including values, trends, pros and cons, and legal issues. He is willing and capable of negotiating effectively and at times aggressively on behalf of his client on price as well as various other aspects of the transaction as much as possible. At the same time, he does not push to force or impose any decisions. He keeps in regular touch with the client as well as with other parties such as attorney and lender to ensure everything about the transaction is progressing well on all fronts. He is himself very flexible and energetic about accommodating various needs, and is readily available to speak or meet with clients as needed. He is motivated and tenacious, and demonstrates a problem solving mindset. He exhibits attention to detail on various phases of the home buying process. He is helpful not just during the home buying process, but even after the transaction is complete, he is caring about the ongoing needs of the client.
Eric is a true professional. He understands the market but more important he understands what people go through when buying or selling a home. Eric takes the time to listen to all of your questions and put you at ease with his professional approach to the entire process. If your looking for someone that knows how it all works, and to make it as painless as possible look no further.
Eric Schwartz handled the sale of my mother’s house. I’m also an agent, in Florida, so I have high expectations. He did an outstanding job. He got her several offers and most importantly a full priced offer. He was on top of every detail. He recommended a home sale contingency that my mother felt uncertain about, but assured her that the buyer’s condo was in a very desirable area. Sure enough, they had six offers the first weekend and my mother’s sale went as quickly as if there had not been a home sale contingency. I’ll recommend him to all friends and family still in the area.
I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know what an outstanding job Eric Schwartz did in the sale of my mother’s house, last month. It wasn’t an easy sale given that she had lived in the house for 50 years. Eric did an excellent job pricing. She received a full price offer, and both the sellers and buyers were very happy. Eric was on top of everything from oil tank removal to some termite issues discovered, and he made a sale with a lot of intricate details run very smoothly. I’m an agent myself, in Florida, so it’s rare that I see the level of professionalism and follow through that I felt warranted recognition, on Eric’s behalf. If my mother- in-law sells her house down the road, we’ll be sure to contact Eric. Thank you to both Weichert and Eric Schwartz for a sale well done!
Eric, just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for your help with the sale of my house. I strongly believe that your professionalism, knowledge and expertise, and sheer determination made the diffe/rence. Regards, Horace
I have bought and sold about 10 homes and by far Eric is the brightest and most knowledgeable realtor I have dealt with. He is extremely organized and responsive. Excellent negotiator and follows through on all details. Nmrsme, Seller
Eric was instrumental in the sale of my mother’s home in South Orange. As a senior lady who was not skilled in selling her home of 50 years, Eric guided my mother through this process with ease and understanding. Rakpak1, Seller
Great help to me. Knew people I could use for repairs ( I live out of the area). Great personality. Jane, Seller
Eric did just what he promised: despite a tough market in our price range, sold my house! He is one smart man who knows his business. I highly recommend him as a realtor, and, further, I recommend following his advice to the tee, as it is good advice. Casriel, Seller
As a first time buyer myself, Eric were extremely patient with me and explained to me the buying process with great detail. I successfully bought my dream house with planned budget. Nathan, Buyer
There are real estate agents and then there’s the Schwartz Team! In this challenging market they sold our Maplewood house in 13 days at full asking price after it went unsold for 6 months with a previous realtor. They also secured the purchase of our next home in Maplewood with one phone call! The Schwartz Team is knowledgeable, professional, hardworking and a pleasure to work with. Their long record of success is no surprise! Maplewood is filled with many wonderful people like Eric -they are one of the many reasons we can’t imagine living anywhere else! Nelson and Bernadette.
Dear Eric What a pleasure it was working with a “pro” like you. Your referral for Commercial Property was a lovely couple who wanted to make an investment. They, too, appreciated the time and expertise you demonstrated. We “closed” yesterday with all sides smiling – a pleasure. I can’t thank you enough for your excellent referral and hope that we can do it again soon. Regards Aaron Mittleman
Dominick P. mentioned at the Mountain Lakes Office Meeting on Wednesday that you had 32 visitors to your Open House in West Orange on Sunday. YOU GO !!!!! If the Studer’s were invited to see you in action, hopefully they were impressed with the superstar that you are!!! Take care, Janis F.
Eric – My personal congratulations to you on your 11 year company anniversary on Sunday . Not only are you a great guy, you are the quintessential real estate professional and I appreciate your tireless dedication to your buyers and sellers plus your contribution to the local market area.
Eric is THE BEST real estate professional we have ever worked with! He understands her clients fully, is on top of any and all issues, and gets the sale or purchase done! As long as we have known him, Eric has been the top performer is this area every year. Once you have worked with Eric, you always will. Jim
I met Eric at an open house, and immediately felt his passion for the area and commitment to help everyone else feel as connected to it as he does. My husband and I moved to South Orange from Virginia about eighteen months ago, and the realtor we used showed us available houses but not much else. After speaking with us, Eric realized that we had never been introduced to the area’s special charms or a community of people with whom we might have something in common. Even though we had not been her clients, Eric swung into action and began our real orientation to this wonderful area. He is still connecting us to special places and new friends, making South Orange our home instead of just the place where we live.
I have used Eric for several transactions and have always been extremely pleased with his service. He truly goes above and beyond the norm to help achieve great results in a timely fashion. I unequivocally recommend him as the best RE broker I have worked with.
I have bought and sold a number houses before, so Eric was not the first agent I worked with but he was the best. From the very first exploratory appointment when I felt they had all the time for me to the few complications during the purchasing process when Eric would way “Do not worry, I will take care of this”. And he always did. If my friends are buying in this area, I would really suggest that they use Eric as their agent.
A legendary real estate agent. Has a sixth sense for what will suit you best. Knows his living areas inside out. Full of honest and useful advice about decoration, and finances. A thousand experts at his finger tips. Really fights for his clients to get the very best deal. I would recommend him to anyone. Alice B
When I decided to move within South Orange last year, he found a wonderful family to purchase my home and helped me find a fully renovated home in a better location which worked for my family. If you are interested in selling your home, Eric has a long list of buyers to whom he can show your house. If you are interested in buying a home, Eric has a thorough understanding of what is available on the market, which properties will be coming up for sale and how to negotiate the best price. Eric is all about business and has a strong, creative team with good taste who work well together to achieve your goals. I highly recommend Eric and his team. Dina Runcie (15 year resident of South Orange)
To whom it may concern, this is a note to recognize outstanding service, customer focus and a true focus toward making a move a wonderful experience. I recently was transferring and starting a new job in NYC from Miami. My first connection with Eric was just to get some additional info on a property his was listening but he took the time to understand my needs and go deeper. As part of my relo package I was assigned another agent that really was not very good or knowledgeable of the area. Despite not being a agent of record Eric still went above and beyond to share other listings that met our needs weekly along with advice and insight on West orange and surrounding areas. My family came to NJ for a housing visit and upon my arrival received a call again from Eric Our assigned agent really dropped the ball on identifying good homes. Within 3 hours Eric sent us a complete package of available homes, by the morning had a full day of homes to visit and they really did an outstanding job.Eric came with us an not only showed homes but made my wife, 2 little girls and myself feel like we where at home. Within a day we found a perfect rental below our budget and meeting all of our needs. From then on the outstanding service never stopped despite being in Miami. From contracts, negotiating terms, following up in everything, providing input on schools, place to eat, moving and so much more. Even after we drove the entire way from Florida to Miami they followed up with providing our family our first meal in town. What can I say but bravo and thanks. It’s clear why they are one of the top agents in the area because it’s not all about the money to them it’s about making the move experience as best as possible with a special touch. Not only do I recommend but commend and thank Eric for going above and beyond. Warren Byrum West Orange, NJ
Dear Jim, Jace, and Dominick: I wanted to let you all know that the closing on our house went through smoothly, after much angst caused by a leaking fuel tank. In shepherding this to closing, Ed and I want to thank Eric who were unfailingly helpful throughout a long difficult process. Their professionalism is much appreciated by us and, I’m sure, by Weichert’s other clients with whom they work. Gail Hollister
Dear Ms. Botti and Mr. Weichert – We wanted to submit a testimonial regarding our wonderful experience working with Weichart real estate agent Eric Schwartz: Deciding to move to South Orange, NJ was an exciting and daunting decision for us. Eric was there for us every step of the way, and helped us feel confident and informed through the finding, buying and closing process of purchasing our first home. As first-time buyers, we needed a realtor who was readily available and responsive to questions and concerns. Eric did that and more. He checked in with us post-move to see how we’d settled in and was always ready with great recommendations for contractors, dog walkers, etc. He is a part of the happy memories of our first home and we hope to work with him again when the time comes for a second. Best Regards, Anisha & Michael Levine
Dear Messrs. Weichert, Botti & Prevete, I got your contact information after asking Eric Schwartz who I could write to about her work with my family. I live in Seattle, Washington. Two years ago I began trying to talk my elderly Mom into leaving the South Orange house my brothers and I had grown-up in — and my Mother had lived in for 50 years. My Mother was understandably reluctant, but gave me permission to talk with a realtor. I asked around the old neighborhood and then I called Eric Schwartz. I liked Eric from our first conversation. He was sympathetic, relatable, and (most important) truly understood my Mom’s reluctance to leave her home. Sadly, my Mom died last spring before she could move. After she died, I contacted Eric and asked him to meet me with my brothers at our house. It was a difficult day — only a week or two after my Mom had passed away — and Eric walked into a house occupied by three grieving brothers and managed to strike exactly the right tone: pragmatic, realistic, empathetic. There was no question that we wanted to work with him. We put the house up for sale in a difficult market and, even worse, found out bit-by-bit that the structure was suffering from a bad case of deferred-maintenance. Air conditioning was broken. Pipes were leaking. Termites were feasting. Every week seemed to bring more bad news about the house — and no good news about the state of the market. And every week I was grateful for Eric. Acting as Administrator of an Estate from 3000 miles away is a difficult task. Eric was there for me every step of the way, ready with a contractor recommendation, an offer to let a worker into the house, the name of a snow plow guy, or assurance that he would make sure a job was done correctly. Whenever I traveled east to check on things with my brothers, there was Eric — coming by to visit and cheer us up. Sincerely, Robert Kaplan
Dear Jim, Jace, and Dominick, I would like to tell you how much my husband and I appreciated the efforts that Eric Schwartz made in selling our condominium in South Orange this past summer. Even though our condo was very “humble” in comparison to the properties with which Eric usually works, he gave us all the respect, help and attention that we could possibly ask for. Eric gave us excellent advice on how to inexpensively prepare and stage our home for showing. He provided our listing to several online searches and regularly provided feedback with the numbers of homebuyers who had looked at our listing online. We were very pleased to have a signed contract within two weeks of listing. Eric helped us negotiate with the buyer, and the entire process was quick and easy for us. He was always available to help with any problems arising leading up to closing. We would strongly recommend Eric to anyone looking for a realtor in the South Orange area. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Marc and Susan M.
Ms. Botti, I just wanted let me appreciation or the wonderful job Eric is doing to be known by the company management. I have been involved in buying houses or apartments more than half dozen times and have never work with anyone as professional, good at what they do and just plain nice before. From the first, admittedly exploratory, visit, when Eric made us fell like he has all the time in the world to spend with us; to the negotiations and the closing process I felt like we are being supported be a very professional team. Every time we had a an issue with anything, I would call and hear: “Do not worry, let me call and take care of this.”. And he did. Anything from sellers not willing to deal during post-inspection negotiations to closing scheduling issues. While I hope I live in my new hose for a while, if I ever will need to buy again in this area, it will definitely be with Eric. Eugene L.
Our Weichart agent for our most recent home purchase was Eric Schwartz. We looked for a house in Maplewood for over one year with Eric. We came to realize that we were indeed particular clients with a very specific vision for what we wanted and what specific area in Maplewood we wanted to live in. Throughout the app. 18 months of looking, Eric stuck with us and showed us house after house, often times providing us with his unique insight into the neighborhood or the offerings or lack thereof of the houses we viewed. We greatly appreciate Eric’s perseverance in finding us a house that we wanted to call a home and during that time, Eric became more than just an agent, Eric became a family friend. Thank you Cherre for helping to create this next stage of our lives, we enjoyed the journey with you. Nadia Cervoni and Hamish W.
Dear Jace, Eric was our agent when we first bought our house in Millburn. We found him very friendly, helpful and resourceful as we settled into our life in Millburn. Four years later, as we were relocating to Hong Kong for my husband’s job transfer this summer, we contacted Eric again in early spring to list our house for sale. Given the current housing market, Eric again offered good, honest feedback from start to finish and patiently guided us through the entire sale process. We always valued Eric’s advice and would not hesitate to recommend him again to our friends or neighbors looking to buy or sell homes in the area. Most importantly, Eric is a pleasure to work with. Eric came with high recommendation from everyone I had spoken to and his track record speaks for itself. Kind regards, Judy
We had the pleasure of working with Eric Schwartz in both buying and selling our house and new home. He is a consummate professional that gets results. Its not only Eric but her whole network of people to help in every stage of the buying and selling process. He took control of the process and insured we understood what we needed to do to get results. You can’t argue with results, and getting our asking price, which was 12% higher than the other 2 agents we interviewed suggested , and getting the buyers for our home before the first public showing. I would strongly recommend working with him. Marc, Livingston
Thank you! You are a wonderful realtor who goes above and beyond every second of the day. We will send referrals your way every chance we can!
Dear Ms. Botti, I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Eric Schwartz as our realtor. Throughout the entire process Eric was professional, reliable, and motivated. I always felt as though I was his only client.
My wife and I, at times, felt frustrated and nervous, but Eric was always available to calm our nerves and speak through any obstacles. He ultimately made our choice, a beautiful Cape/ Colonial in Short Hills, an easy one! We love it and owe it all to Eric. He always had our best interest in mind throughout the entire process. Furthermore, Eric has recommended professionals from a pediatrician to a plumber and we have never been disappointed. It is truly amazing how he has extended himself for our family. I would be delighted to answer any specific questions regarding Eric’s performance. Yours truly, Serge W.
Dear Ms. Botti, We just wanted to get in touch and say how utterly thrilled we were with Eric Schwartz as our buyers agent for our home purchase. Our recent purchase of a rare and lovely house in South Orange, was ONLY made possible because of Eric’s invaluable advice and assistance. For all the worries we had about buying in an area that we didn’t really know in the beginning, Eric educated us and helped us realize this was the best thing we could possibly do, without ever once making us feel that she knew our minds better than us. On top of his own expertise, he helpfully pointed us in the right direction for countless other services that helped make our house purchase smoother. Having previously purchased properties in another country, we really feel that the entire industry that we’ve encountered before could massively benefit from Eric’s attitude and appreciation of everyone involved in the transaction. We really cannot praise him highly enough, and the irony is, we came across her details quite by chance on the internet. It was a very, very lucky find. Each person we met on our home purchase journey after Eric told us how lucky we were to have him in our corner, and they were always right. We would recommend her without question to anyone buying or selling, and we are just so grateful to have had the opportunity of working with him on our new home purchase! Sincerely, Alice & Mark B. South Orange, NJ
Dear Ms. Jace Botti, We want to highly recommend and thank Eric Swartz for his hard work and persistence in selling our house in South Orange, New Jersey. In a down economic market Eric was able to promote, “show”, and attract buyers to our home. He made helpful recommendations and was flexible with our preferences. I highly recommend Eric as an agent for anyone!!! Jon and Miriam W. South Orange, N.J. 08079
Dear Jace, We wanted to let you know how happy we were with the services provided by Eric Schwartz. He did everything possible to accommodate our needs and answer all of our questions. When we decided to move to Maplewood from Brooklyn we were completely unfamiliar with the area. Eric picked us up, gave us a comprehensive tour, and took us to a dozen houses that were in our price range and fit the specifications we were looking for. When it was time to put in a bid, Eric worked aggressively to secure the home we selected. Once we were under contract, when most other realtors would assume their work was done, Eric did not stop taking care of every detail. He even emailed us a reminder to have all the utilities switched over 3 weeks before move in! We would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a considerate and professional realtor. Sincerely, Rebecca and Daniel G.
Moving from Canada to the US to launch a new business is stressful enough. Moving children, households and pets takes stress to the next level. Eric Schwartz came highly recommended and working with him and his team was a pleasure. His deep insights based on years of experience and his clear understanding of our family’s needs reassured us every step of the way. His strategic approach to the process of buying our home was evident throughout – especially when we were faced with having to compete with several other couples for the home we had settled on. We have now lived in that home for the past 6 months and couldn’t be more pleased. Eric and his team went above and beyond on countless occasions. I would not hesitate for an instant in recommending them. Ginger J.
We got really lucky when we found Eric during our house hunt in the South Orange/ Maplewood area. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and very helpful throughout the buying process and beyond. Our property had been listed with another realtor for 6 months before we switched to Eric and within a week and a half he had sold our house. Eric aggressively marketed our house, delivered on his promise to sell it quickly (even in a difficult market), and handled all of the minor details as we had already relocated out of state. His communication skills were excellent and we always had a comfortable feeling about what was happening with the sale of our house. Eric is an exceptional realtor and I would recommend him to anyone who is seriously interested in selling their house. As newcomers to South Orange and New Jersey, Eric provided us a wealth of useful information and contacts based on his professional and personal networks. Making sure that we settled into the community quickly and efficiently. He is more than a realtor, he is relocation specialist! Eric understands that you aren’t just buying a house, your are choosing a home. He took care to listen to our needs, understand our budget and presented us with prospects that fit our family. We found our home within the first week of working with Eric! Ginger J.
We got really lucky when we found Eric during our house hunt in the South Orange/ Maplewood area. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and very helpful throughout the buying process and beyond. Not only did we find a wonderful and professional real estate agent in Eric, but also a great friend. We still keep in touch after 2 years of buying our home. If we decide to move, we will surely ask for Eric’s help in finding our new home. Yogini and Jay S., South Orange, NJ
I have known Eric for about five years even before we ever thought about selling our house in South Orange. When we decided to sale our house, we contacted 4 realtors in the area who appeared to have excellent knowledge of the area as well as good marketing expertise. Eric was one of them. I found Eric to be the best in the attributes we were looking for. After the listing, I found Eric to be honest, upfront, helpful and very friendly to deal with. He has a charming personality so that you enjoy talking to him about anything. We wish him success. Greg & Jennifer E., South Orange
We chose Eric to sell our home in South Orange because of his outstanding track record, impressive presentation, and above all, passion for the industry and our property. Eric delivered all of the above and more; his services pre and post contract to closing were truly ‘above and beyond’ which was helpful as we were mostly out of town during the process. We would unquestionably recommend Eric to anyone in the area buying or selling a home who seeks both outstanding results and the desire to work with a consummate professional. J.R ,South Orange
Knowing how difficult it is when you are in the market to sell or purchase a home of your own, having the right person to help you throughout this trying time is so important. I have been a home owner for many years and have bought and sold many homes, but I never had a person like Eric give me the care and concern in the real estate process. His unique and personal touch in every aspect of the process is second to none. I felt like he knew the community and every changing market better than anyone that I have ever seen. Eric made every effort to maximize the time of my search, listened to wheat my needs were, an led me towards my ultimate goal.” J.Kang., Short Hills
We had been looking around for about a year and worked with several brokers. Eric was a pleasure to work with, and we very much benefited from his wealth of knowledge since we were a first time buyer., He guided us through the daunting process of buying and closing on a house in a new neighborhood. In addition, he had a wide network of local contacts and referrals to help us get entrenched here. Eric is a real professional and trustworthy realtor, and we will not hesitate to recommend him to our friends.
