My wife and I are naturally skeptical people, especially about the real estate market. Nevertheless, we were sufficiently clueless about home buying process. We decided to pick an agent according to the reviews and grudgingly went along despite suspicions that the reviews sounded too good to be true. Erica won over pretty quickly all of the stars pretty quickly for all of the reasons noted below (see the many stars). Mostly though, we got the strong sense that Erica was working to get us something we’d be happy with for the best possible price. She was sincere and helpful from beginning to end. Just the type of person you need when looking for your first home. She was flexible with timings and availability when I requested to visit the property at the weekend. Erica gave us her honest view on each property that we looked at, and which helped us taking informative decision. She was quite patient with talking us through the reams of home buying process. Erica gave great advice as far as our offer went; she was very knowledgeable about what would make our offer stand out in an extremely challenging market. She made sure we view the place several times, put the offer together, and beat out three other offers, all in less than a week. Excellent, knowledgeable, and professional service by Erica. We definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a house.

We've had two seven figure transactions with Erica, and she was the lynch pin in navigating these deals when there are many moving parts. She's a consummate professional and provides an amazing buying experience and knowledge when your in the market to buy a home. She's is very responsive and follows up on every detail. I recommend her to all my friends looking to buy homes and will continue to use her in the future.

Erica is simply the best! She went above and beyond each step of the way for my husband and me. This was our first home purchase, so we had several questions throughout the process. Erica was extremely responsive as well as patient, really taking the time to explain every detail. We had a super quick close date, and she made sure the process not only moved as quick as possible but as smooth as possible for us. Her negotiation skills really shined through! I would absolutely recommend Erica, she is wonderful!

Erica sold my home in Mendham while I was living out-of-state, negotiating skillfully between renters, buyers, and myself. She solved all the problems that cropped up during the process, including some repair issues that required finding the best contractor for the job. When I became frazzled with the process, Erica was always cool, calm, and instrumental in getting right to the perfect solution. I had thought that selling from afar would be a difficult process, but with Erica on board everything went smoothly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

Erica sold our custom built luxury home in 2005. The level of professionalism and expertise that she brought to this process could not have been surpassed. Erica took great care in accurately pricing our home for the market and then followed through with beautiful photographs of each room as well as the landscaping. When it came time to show the house, she was extremely thorough and respectful. Erica’s attention to details and passion for her job helped to make the whole process go more smoothly. We look forward to using her again in the near future, if that's not a recommendation for trusting Erica to sell your home, I don't know what is!

Erica Levey is the most professional agent you will ever meet. We interviewed 3 agents from other agencies before meeting Erica. All 3 agents strongly suggested pricing our house at around the same price level, but we felt that they were all underpricing the value of our home. Thank goodness we interviewed Erica. We ended up selling our home for 27% more than the number all the other agents had suggested, and it was only on the market for one month! From your first meeting with Erica right through post-closing, Erica will be with you every step of the way, advising you on even the smallest of details to ensure that your house will be sold. Her experience with both the sale and purchase of real estate is second to none, and her network of contacts in the services related to buying and selling homes was a huge help to us. In short, we could not have done it without her. We whole-heartedly recommend Erica to anyone who is interested in a seamless, highly organized real estate transaction experience

I interviewed many realtors in order to sell my house and without a question from the moment Erica walked into my house she was businesslike, knowledgeable and I knew would be honest and hardworking. From negotiating the contract until closing she was on top of every detail and made sure the transaction ran smoothly!!! I could not have asked for a better realtor and would highly recommend her!!!
It is with great pleasure to write this recommendation for Erica because of her outstanding work she did helping me buy my first home and as a result of her hard work and dedication I’m now living in my ideal home. I mentioned to my friend I was looking to buy a house and right away he recommended Erica to me because his family had used her in the past. I told him I needed her to guide me through the entire process because I was so new to the home buying experience. He said Erica is most friendly and an exceptional real estate agent. When I met Erica she immediately impressed me with her professionalism, honesty and her level of knowledge in the real estate industry. She understood all of my concerns and became my advocate every step of the way. When I had my home inspection she was with me overlooking every detail discussing and identifying any possible issues with the home inspector. There was very little work I had to do because she took care of everything. I remember when we were in the negotiating stage Erica and I were talking on the phone and I remember looking at the time saying to myself she is working so late and wondering why she is doing all this work for me. I could tell she cares a lot about her clients and doing a good job with respect and integrity was her priority. This is why it is easy for me to recommend Erica to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to use her again in the future.
Erica is the best and the most professional agent you are ever going to have. Erica helped us to find home for ourselves and few members of our family in a highly competitive market - she is very thorough with her work, very responsive, cares more about what you want rather than getting you to just whats out there, she is very patient - knows her real estate market and very personable. One wonderful quality about her - is that she is relentless in getting information - she will call whoever she needs to get adequate information and makes sure everything is on track. She is just great!
—Leo, Florham Park
Erica is a true professional and has demonstrated this in 12 real estate transactions. We rely on her knowledge of the properties and the value that each property has and will have in the future. She is patient and listens to the needs of the buyer and seller. We have both purchased and sold properties with Erica and could not be happier. She gets all the difficult things done that transpire during a buy or sell and solves the issues with professional expertise. We recommend her to all of our friends and business associates. Needless to say we will use Erica for all of our real estate transactions.

My husband and I listed our home in Basking Ridge with Erica. She gave us excellent advice on just what to do to get our home ready for sale and helped 'stage' it prior to listing it. She provided us with a lot of research on home sale prices comparable to our home and while we were a bit nervous about the asking price, we followed her advice. It worked! We received 5 offers on our home and were under contract with our buyer in 4 days. It sold for considerably over the asking price. We could not have been happier with the process. Erica was always available to answer our questions and help us with any issues that came up during the closing process.
—Chris, Basking Ridge
In the course of a lifetime with multiple moves, Erica is by far the best real estate agent with whom we have worked. She takes the time to understand each client's likes dislikes and priorities and does not waste buyer time on properties that will never work. She knows the neighborhoods intimately and is willing to put in extra hours to fact find about unusual needs. She has the highest integrity and is clearly respected by other agents, tradesman and former clients.She is willing to work around the clock if need be to make sure that deals close on time. If we move again, Erica will definitely get the listing. She was recommended to us by a longtime friend who described her as an extraordinary agent and wonderful person and we couldn't agree more. We give her our highest recommendation!!
