It's that 'then some' element of Eric's personality that affects everay aspect of his life.from work to volunteering in different areas for the communityor simply competing against friends in a game, I have always been a relentless example of the proverbial 110%. "Service is everything I have been in sales for over 25 years, I have learned that when you treat people like you want to be treated, and give your absolute best effort, the result is always customer satisfaction."
For someone who is so driven to excel, it's no wonder that Eric has become a successful real estate professional. Combining my "anything's possible? philosophy with solid business skills and thorough knowledge of real estate and the local market, I am helping home buyers and sellers realize their dreams-and then some. With a strong influence on client satisfaction, I pay attention to the wants and needs of families who are going through a move. "I get to know my clients and I listen closely to their objectives,? "By asking them the right questions, I can plan how to best help them achieve positive results?
As a native of the area, I have an insightful knowledge of the amenities and attractions of each separate community. This is an invaluable asset when it comes to showing buyers all this beautiful area has to offer or when he is marketing a home to reach its maximum potential. Sellers benefit from my innate ability to showcase a home. It's About Confidence I have the kind of warm, friendly style that is easy to know. You will feel comfortable from the moment you meet me, and as you experience a organized, professional approach and you see first hand how I protect your best interests, you will be confident that your real estate dreams are in good hands. When you are thinking of making a move, you owe it to yourself to contact the one professional who's confident you will be completely satisfied with his high level of service. Thats me.
I take my chosen profession and my duties toward my clients very seriously. Here is a brief summary of how we here at Erlandson Realty & wilandandhome.com help people like you fulfill your dreams of property ownership:
1) THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME
Honesty and frank assessments of the real estate in question.
Familiarity with the area.
Full attention to your needs (I listen).
Appropriate property suggestions based upon your specific needs.
Property suggestions with layouts that meet the needs of your entire family.
Knowledge of properties - Fishing, type of frontage, building sites, exposure, etc.
2) THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM OUR COMPANY
Buyers Agency Available
A Company That Cares About You, Your Wants And Needs.
Knowledge of all necessary paperwork
Willingness To Work Around Your Schedule
3) IN RETURN, THIS IS WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU
Honesty about what you want, what you can afford, the area that is right for you, and your specific needs - help me help you by answering questions honestly.
Agreement by all the decision makers involved in the investment - spouse, business partner, children, etc.
Preparedness to walk the property - appropriate scheduling, attire, etc.
Emotional and Financial preparedness to invest in property.
You must have made the decision to make a decision if and when we find the property that is right for you. On a weekly basis, I speak with people who found the "right property" 2 or more years ago, but did not take advantage of their opportunity. They are calling me because they still have not found another property that feels like the first one or because any replacements they have found are not affordable. Many of them eventually give up completely. You don't want this to happen to you, and I don't want to be part of an experience like this.
Keep the appointment agreed upon with all parties present.
Be willing to complete government mandated paperwork (disclosure of agency) Have planned in advance what you will do when we walk on the right property.
Now, just to be certain that we are "on the same page", let me assure you that I immensely enjoy helping people like you fulfill their dreams. This is a fun and exciting time! The 3 expectations were created so that we have the best possible chance of fulfilling those dreams and so that we do things the right way the first time.

Bob and Karen:
It was a great pleasure to work with Eric. He was very informative and helpful and a lot of fun to work with. After looking for a long time for that perfect piece of land with a fantastic view, he had it. We highly recommend Eric, as the experience was very professional and hassle-free.

Our experience with Eric was handled very quick and easy. We told Eric what we were looking for, and in less than 2 weeks, we saw what we wanted and had a accepted offer. Even after our land purchase, any questions that we have regarding permits, contractors, etc., we know that we can call Eric and he will get the information that we need. It was one of the easiest transactions we ever made.

Mike & Patricia:

Having worked with various real estate persons, we have high expectations. Eric fulfilled all our requirements with his dedication to service and commitment to detail. All our questions and issues were handled in a helpful and timely manner both before AND after the sale. We have already recommended Eric to other friends looking for property.
For me buying land was a personal investment I wanted to achieve. For two years I was searching for property to buy but always ran into issues. I about gave up on the goal until I was passed the number for Eric Ristey. Not only were the right questions asked and addressed but the time consuming and difficult parts of buying land was handled by Eric. Everything about the purchase of the property was made easy. When I was handed Eric's number I never expected to be treated so well and actually have fun buying land. I would recommend Eric Ristey for anyone thinking about buying land!
Thanks for all your help!!
Eric was very straightforward. He answered all questions directly and was very good about getting back to us. He is very patient and was fun work with. I would recommend him to family and friends. As I said, Eric was fun to work with.
Dave & Linda:
Arden Hills, MN
Two years ago, Linda and I were looking for a place to call our own. We had visited many resorts, B&B?s and vacation hot spots, but it was finely time to fulfill the dream and actually own our special, favorite get-away. We contacted Eric promised us that he would help find a place that would wrap its arms around us and give us a big hug. Eric found just that! Now after watching a stunning sunset, sipping a glass of fine wine and warming up by a crackling campfire, we find ourselves hugging each other all the time.

We own several properties in different states and have therefore dealt with a lot of realtors. We can honestly say that Eric Ristey is simply the best! He is very personable, honest, respectful and has a great sense of humor. The best part is that even after the sale, while most realtors lose interest in you, he is still there for questions, suggestions or a friendly conversation. We can not recommend anyone so easily or as highly as Eric Ristey!
