Erik Petersen

Agent, Team Admin Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Alliance Real Estate - Clayton/Ladue Office

Erik is a life-long St. Louis resident. He grew up in the Florissant area and attended Lutheran High School North. After high school he attended Rockhurst University where he played soccer and received a BSBA in business management. After college he joined Central Pattern Company where he worked for eight years as a sales engineer operating a CMM (computerized measuring machine), ran the ISO program, and was in charge of OSHA and purchasing. Erik has always had a passion for residential architecture and typically found himself attending open houses just for fun. It never occurred to Erik that he could make a career out of this until the idea was brought up around family members. He started slow, taking night classes and after passing the real estate exam, what seemed like a dream was coming to reality. He decided to leave his current job and has never looked back. In his first year he had great success receiving a rising star award and he was asked to join the Breihan/Malecek team.

Erik lives in Creve Coeur with his wife Jackey and dog Dex. He is involved in many organizations including the Rockhurst University Alumni Council of St. Louis, Lutheran High School Association, and Juvenile Diabetic Research Foundation. In his spare time, he enjoys playing soccer, golf, cycling and any other outdoor activity.

Eric Petersen did a fabulous job working with us and our home sale and purchase. We cannot say enough good things about the Breihan Malecek Petersen and James Team. They were all absolutely phenomenal! We would recommend them to anyone and will definitely use them again in the future. Thank you for all that you did Eric!

Erik did a great job assisting Steve and the team with the preparation and subsequent sale of my house. I could not be more appreciative.

He is professional, friendly, reliable, and prompt. I will definitely work with Erik and Team again.

Eric helped us to buy a house this Summer. We were moving from out of town, but he was happy to put in the extra effort to explain the different neighborhoods, schools and other things we might find attractive. He is extremely responsive to every little request.
We were also very impressed how much present Erik was throughout the transition period when we needed help in things beyond new house purchase. Even after sale went through Erik was still responsive to our inquiries which tells us who he is as a person - caring, helpful and excellent professional!
We couldn't recommend him more highly!

Erik did an awesome job working with us to get our old home prepared to sell, which sold very fast (1 day) and has been involved with making sure our new home is everything we dreamed it to be. He is very professional but personable and has your best interest in mind. I would recommend Erik to all my friends and family who are looking to sell or buy a new home.

Erik made the home buying process very easy and stress free. He was always available to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend using Erik in your home search.

Erik was a fantastic realtor. He responded to all of our questions very quickly. Kept us in the loop throughout the entire process and did what he could to make our first home-buying experience a pleasant one. Always made sure he made time to get us out to see a house or set something up with one of his partners right away if he was unavailable. But the biggest quality that we admired was, he was forth coming about things, he didn't pressure us to make a sale but was honest with us when it we decided to dig in where we were at. We would recommend Erik to anyone and use him again in the future.

In working with a first-time homebuyer, Erik Petersen exemplified the listening skills, service commitment and responsiveness that will earn him a lifetime business relationship. He exhibited outstanding market knowledge, was willing to explore all options, never tired of questions and ideas, and thoughtfully negotiated an advantageous contract. The timeliness of his efforts was consistently outstanding. I highly recommend Erik

Erik was great for us, even as first-time home buyers. He was extremely organized as well as helpful/knowledgeable with all the questions we had. We were buying in a pretty strong sellers market, but Erik found a great place that was in the area we wanted and checked all our boxes. We got a great deal within our budget as well. Signing contracts, negotiation, closing, etc. were all quick and painless from our end. Highly recommend.

Erik was/is a great realtor! We couldn't have asked for a better person to help us buy our first home. He was completely honest with us, didn't want us to over pay for a home. Wanted to make sure we were paying the right price and would be able to get it all back when he sold later on.!

I am typically a skeptic when it comes to realtors and always had the impression that I could do it better myself until I met Erik Petersen. Erik managed every aspect of the selling process, and without a doubt, he is the hardest working agent I have ever met.

Erik's creative ideas for selling our home went above and beyond excellence. Each time we saw him he gave us new insights about the buying and selling process. We were provided with market analytics, information about his team meetings and our listing was not only featured on the front page of a luxury magazine, but also was the #1 home listed under Zillow for several weeks in our market. Erik even had a special photographer come out to take drone footage of our property and beautiful interior photos as well. Erik raises the game as a consummate professional, selling our home in only fifty three days when the average home sale in our neighborhood typically took well over six months.

We were so pleased with Erik that we used his services to purchase a townhome and a villa while we were selling our home. Erik is an absolute pleasure to work with and if I could, I would rate him higher than five stars.
