I can't even begin to explain how wonderful our experience was with Erika as the agent selling our home!


Erika knows all the ins and outs of this business, she is very respected in the industry and it is obvious why.

If you are a buyer or a seller, you cannot be in better hands...

Finance Executive
Erika is the best, most professional, meticulous skillful agent ever. Her attention to detail to protect her client is exemplary. And she is attentive beyond call of duty. We were absentee owners and had to rely on her for renovation and other set-up detail. She did an amazing job managing the process like it’s her own asset. And finally her process delivered great results and we sold at a great price with no hassle. Highly and greatly recommended. And above all a delightful professional lady to work with.

Working with Erika is a pleasure. She is always ahead of every detail, I never had to worry about a thing. Her reputation precedes her as a top agent in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills. I highly recommend her as an agent whether or not you are selling your home or looking for a new one!

Erika has helped us with two property purchases over the last couple years and was of great help in both purchases. She provided good advice both times and would recommend her to others looking to buy a property.

Erika recently managed the leasing of our property in Palo Alto. She performed very well in all of the standard areas one would expect of a real estate professional. She was exceptional in preparing the home for rental. She provided a lot of assistance on what would make it more attractive, organized various vendors and made the place look fantastic, while keeping us in the loop and implementing at a reasonable cost. In the end we got a lot of demand as soon as it went on the market, and we closed on the tenant in a few weeks at the price we wanted.

Thank you Erika for a fantastic job.

Erika managed the leasing of our home in Palo Alto. We have rented it out for over 15 years using many different agents in the Bay Area. Of all the agents we have worked with over the years, Erika was the most thorough by far. She was meticulous with the preparation and presentation of the house, and really understood her market. I would highly recommend her services.

Corporate Counsel
Erika did an outstanding job helping my family find our new home, from start to finish! She educated us about the housing market and buying process, gave us a grand tour of a host of neighborhoods meeting our general criteria to help us contextulize, walked us through pros and cons of different neighborhoods and houses and then helped us refine our search down to specific target neighborhoods. Once we found the house, Erika's skill helped us win it: we drew on her deep experience to craft not only a competitive bid but one that strongly resonated with the sellers. Her professionalism also gave her strong rapport with the selling agent which gave us a key advantage over competing bids. And Erika didn't stop there - once our offer was accepted she was extremely proactive in ensuring all processes to closing went smoothly, including by drawing on her extremely strong network of professionals (from lenders to insurance experts to builders), and we were in our new home in a flash. We are overjoyed and cannot recommend Erika highly enough!

Erika did an amazing job for us. She's incredibly responsive and well connected. We rarely had to wait longer than an hour get replies to emails and texts. Even in the middle of the night! She was always able to get us appointments to view properties within a few days of us expressing interest. She's extremely knowledge and efficient. After closing she still continues to provide excellent service - connecting us with people and giving advice. We would definitely use her again and recommend her highly to others.

Erika is very professional. She knows the area and she coordinates with us. She is responsible and fast. She definitely respects our point of view and provides the right helps whenever we need. I believe she can deal with all kinds of buyers and sellers. I highly recommend Erica and look forward to work with her again in the future.

Erika is extremely knowledgeable of the local market, great in promoting the property, taking great care of our interest and definitely a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend her to all of our friends and family and looking forward to work again with her in the future.

Erika is by far the best relator I have ever dealt with. Erika is not only very professional, but knows exactly what needs to be done to prepare a home for sale. Erika kept me informed on everything happening at every step of the way. Erika was also very mindful of our budget for having things done and her contacts for painting, staging, landscaping were all fabulous and did outstanding jobs. Erika had comps available so I could list the home where it should be. Erika gave me advice when I needed it, but always left the decision up to me; I never felt pressured to do anything. Erika's knowledge of the business is at the highest level and her handling and working with the buyer side was of the highest level too. I would recommend, and will going forward, Erika to everyone I know. She is the most delightful person to work with. You have a STAR in this woman. I am so very glad I had Erika to help me with my estate sale.

First of all, I cannot say enough about Erika Ameri - we were lucky enough to meet Erika at an open house she was conducting in our neighborhood. After speaking with her on the phone when we were ready to sell our home, I could immediately tell that Erika was the right agent for us. Not only is Erika amazing at what she does, but she also has a team of supporting characters that she can call upon (contractors, handymen, professional cleaners, stagers) who are top notch as well. It is because of her extensive network and Erika's expertise that we were able to get our house ready and sold in less than a month.

With Erika, not only do you get a complete professional who knows the business inside and out, but you get someone who truly cares about her clients and who takes care of you during the entire process. In addition, Erika communicates with you every step of the way. She is an excellent communicator and there was never a time when we did not know the status of our sale. We had a couple unexpected items to deal along the way but Erika did not blink an eye - she just jumped in to take care of things and guided us along the way. She had our complete trust from day one due to her professionalism, knowledge of the business and her immersion in the Palo Alto, Los Altos, Mountain View area. She knows this market like the back of her hand and it shows.

Lastly, I remember reading a previous review about Erika when we were trying to select an agent for our sale and someone wrote how Erika had actually become a friend. And I can now see how that happened - not only is she an amazing agent but she is a truly caring person with a fun, positive attitude who we now call a friend (and who we hope to keep in touch with going forward!) To me that is one of the greatest compliments - there are not many people you meet in business dealings that you can say that about! That being said, as I stated previously, I really cannot say enough - we feel very lucky that we found her and I would highly recommend Erika to anyone! So thank you Erika - we truly appreciate it!!!

Erika is an outstanding realtor with a keen attention to detail. She's an expert at understanding her market and what it takes to make a successful sale and exceed expectations.

Throughout our entire home-selling process, Erika has provided her vast knowledge and guidance while ensuring that every task and deliverable was completed and met on time. Her extensive network of contractors ensured that we always had available resources to optimize and prepare our home for prospective buyers.

Erika is extremely well-organized and excels at communicating with her clients and keeping them completely informed while expertly handling all of the complex details that are required when selling a home. Through her hard work, we received multiple offers on our home at prices that exceeded our expectations.

I couldn't recommend Erika highly enough. She is a superstar!

I had the pleasure of working with Erika as she helped me sell both my condo and purchase a new one. During the buying and selling process there were numerous unforeseen "hiccups" that Erika navigated with calmness and assertiveness. When I was freaking out (which was often) Erika always talked me down and handled whatever problems that was in our way. I'm not sure either deal would have closed if it weren't for her. Working in the service industry myself, I was really impressed with her accessibility and attention to detail. Anytime I had a question or needed something, I could always count on Erika to respond quickly and get it done. Erika was truly amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Erika went out of her way to keep me and my family informed and engaged in every step of the process, from finding a place to closing on it. She ensured our bid won over competing offers and stayed with us all the way until move in. Thanks so much, Erika!

Erika was absolutely fantastic to work with! She went above and beyond to find properties both on and off market that would be a fit for our family. Most importantly she made us feel like she always had time for us and that she was genuinely concerned with helping us find the best place based on our unique needs. She helped us better understand the market just coming to California and Her connections/recommendations were priceless! I would highly recommend Erika and we would work with her again in a heartbeat!

I highly recommend Erika. She quickly and successfully completed a buy transaction for me, and did it so that I had very little stress about it, she just handled everything perfectly and professionally.

Looking forward to doing business with Erika again :)

This has been our second experience with Erika Ameri as our real estate agent and just like the first one, it has been fantastic. In fact, we do not think of Erika as our realtor; she is our close friend who always a phone call away with her invaluable knowledge and experience. Her intimate knowledge of the bay area housing market, her familiarity with all neighborhood, superior working relationship with other agents and lenders, as well as deep understanding of her client’s situation and needs makes her one of the excellent agents in the region. Perhaps the aspect that distinguishes Erika from other agents is that she is always by your side when you need her, even after the transaction is closed. She has an exceptional familiarity and working relationship with all the trades people that you might ever need; be it gardeners, contractors, designers, or any other expert, they are always in touch with you after getting Eirka’s call and are more than happy to help when they learn that you are her client. We strongly recommend Eirka not only as a superb real estate agent that make your dream come true, but also as a friend that makes your journey getting there a wonderful and pleasant one.

Erika has been the most responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and good heart person I could choose to work with. She knows everyone, everyone street, everyone on the market and upcoming property, and she is always available to accommodate her time. I will certainly work with her in the future and recommend her with my eyes closed.
