Eric is amazing! He doesn't sell houses, he helps people find a home! My husband and I are first time home buyers and didn't have a clue where to start. We had previously talked to two other realtors who would only talk to my husand, were very rude and forceful about their views, and didn't have answers to most of our questions. Then Eric was referred to us by my parents. I must say I would 100% recommend him to anyone buying a home, 1st time or 100th time. Eric is patient and knowledgeable. He also kept both my husband and myself in the loop, answering both of our questions and any questions our children had as well. He explained everything we needed to do, helped us find a lender that was right for us, answered every question we had about anything we had questions about during the entire process. He even answered us after hours and early mornings. He was very flexible and worked around our schedules as well. He is extremely poltie, friendly and just an amazing person to work with. I honestly cannot say enough nice things about Eric because he is that AMAZING! I highly recommend Eric to everyone and anyone wanting to buy a home.

We first reached out to Eric & Dana Topel to help us with selling our parcel of land because they are good friends as well as highly respected realtors. We are so glad we did! Eric was our primary point of contact and he was always responsive and helpful, making the process as smooth and seamless as possible. It truly was like having an ally on the “inside” that was working for us!

Eric was great as a project manager and an agent when you came to selling my home. He was always on top of repairs that the home needed and keeping an open communication line with us. He always answered my calls or gave me a call right back. A pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone in the area.

Eric was true professional from start to finish. He communicated extremely well and made the sale seamless! Nice to have a realtor who just isn't about getting the listing. Have used area realtors in the past and wasn't impressed by them at all. Will use him on all our future property sales! Great job Eric!

I just recently purchased a home thru Eric and the guy was a tremendous help. He was right there through the disaster with my financing lender with forewarnings and he was on top the sellers with home fixes before I closed. Eric made the whole homebuying experience worthwhile and was a great deal of help. He'll definitely be a the top of my list for a future home purchase.

Eric is amazing to work with. He showed us every house we wanted to see within a day or two of requesting to view the property. He also helped us receive our full seller concession on our new property by offering slightly more than asking because of his knowledge of this particular builder. He would respond to text messages within a few minutes of receiving them. We are first time home buyers and he made this process the easiest we could have ever hoped for! We highly recommend using Eric!

The duplex we have been living in for 11 years came up on the market. We contacted Eric, who immediately contacted us back. He was extremely helpful in getting all the necessary aspects of this sale together. From inspection, to contractor, to loan specialist. We had little to no worries, and closed in less than 2 months. My husband and I have lived in this area for over 40 years, and he knew more than we did. You can's go wrong with Eric Topel

My wife and I recently purchased property from Eric Topel. We found him to be right on the spot and every step of this purchase. From getting appraiser, to finding a contractor, as well as lending agent. Also available when needed. We cannot recommend him enough. We have lived in the area for 40 years, and found his knowledge of the area surpasses ours. You will not go wrong utilizing his vast knowledge and skills in this hectic industry.

Eric took care of all our needs throughout the entire sale process. He knew who to contact to get necessary repairs done for our property and at the right price. We've been able to let go of the wheel and let Eric take us across the finish line. Highly recommend.

"My husband and I met Eric Topel when we requested a showing at one of his listings. Although that house was not for us, when we were ready to see more we contacted Eric to be our realtor because of his professionalism and his disposition at the first listing. He listened to our list of wants, found us exactly what we were looking for, and had the knowledge and experience to help us submit a competitive offer. Eric Topel was dedicated to ensuring our happiness and made purchasing a home as first time home owners as smooth of a process as possible. He will be our go-to realtor for any of our future needs and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. "
