Erik Carlson REALTOR®Personal Real Estate Corporation (Lic #167000)
"My husband and I recently purchased a condo with the help of our realtor, Erik Carlson. Although the home purchase process is generally stressful, Erik did his best to make this experience as easy as possible for us. What stood out most for us was his professional demeanour, his knowledge and how he patiently and willingly shared his information of homes with us from the start. If you're looking for a knowledgable and professional realtor who is patient and not pushy, yet knows when to act fast, then we'd definitely recommend Erik to you."

"Erik is amazing at what he does, I wouldn't have been able to buy my first home had it not been for Erik. He is incredibly diligent and patient. He made such an overwhelming and nerve-racking experience for a first time home owner, a walk in the park.
He hand held me through ALL aspects of becoming a home owner and gave me an education on topics ranging from building materials to types of furniture. Erik goes above and beyond and cares deeply about the clients. There is so much to learn from Erik, not just about real estate but life in general.
The level professionalism and earnestness with which Erik works is just extra ordinary, I wish to inculcate that in my own life. Seeing Erik brings me immense joy, he has wealth of experience and yet is very humble and has your best interest at heart.
Thank you Erik for making my dream come true."

"Erik Carlson REALTOR® knows the market well that we live in now and that we were looking to purchase in. His proximity to downtown Vancouver made him an ideal choice for availability on short notice for showings and meetings. I have known Erik first as a friend and someone who's honest, genuine, and diligent.
His abilities as our buyers agent did not disappoint. Erik listened to what we were looking for and enabled us to proceed through the process of making an offer that lead to an accepted offer and successful purchase.
Erik was especially good at handling some of the difficult situations the seller's agent created for us and putting in extra effort to get us what we needed when the seller's agent fell short on their responsibilities."
Mike T, Vancouver (Buyer) Fri, 07 Jun 2019 10:32:13 +1000
"I met with 2 realtors before meeting with Erik. I knew right away he was the one. He goes from efficiency to success thanks to his knowledge and exceptional inter personal skills.
He helped me buy my first condo in 1 month while meeting all my requirements. He also helped me to sell it in less than 1 month. He always had a solution for any challenges we had (timeline, tenancy, ...).
This is why I would highly recommend Erik Carlson REALTOR® to anyone interested in real estate in Vancouver."

"Erik is a great communicator; we never felt rushed or pressured. In the process of buying, we saw numerous good and bad examples of real estate marketing. When it was our turn to sell, Erik’s advice and marketing plan was second to none. Our place was sold in just ten days for more than we were looking for."
Suneil K, Vancouver (Seller) Sat, 03 Nov 2018 04:58:20 +1000

Anne Agustin, Vancouver (Buyer) Fri, 02 Nov 2018 14:44:17 +1000
"We first connected with Erik in 2015 and since then, we have used him for all of our real estate services. We have bought a place, sold a place and bought one more. Throughout all of this, Erik was extremely supportive as we explored various investment ideas, which included trips to the Sunshine Coast, rental properties in the lower mainland and joint purchases with friends. He has the patience of a saint and always goes above and beyond! Erik provides detailed market analysis, gives thoughtful advice and constructive feedback, and responds to all of our questions/requests (sometimes panicked ones late in the evening). Above all else, Erik is honest and extremely trustworthy; we lucked out considering there are thousands of other real estate agents in Vancouver. We have recommended Erik to our family and friends, and will absolutely continue to do so!"

Robert Laing, Vancouver (Buyer) Thu, 13 Sep 2018 10:33:33 +1000
"We wanted to engage with and support a gay or gay-friendly agent, so we looked through the Pink Pages Vancouver and discovered Erik Carlson at Oakwyn Realty.
This process was extremely smooth and easy. We had no concerns to address along the way.
Erik Carlson was fantastic. We felt extremely well taken care of despite never having met him in person. He was attentive, listened to our needs, provided clear advice, was quick to respond, was pro-active in asking us things we hadn't thought about, dealt extremely professionally with our tenants - which can be a challenge, advised us on our offer options that eventually got us what we wanted - and more, and was a delight to work with.
We highly recommend Erik Carlson!"

I'd recommend Erik Carlson to anyone! Thank you so much Erik!!"

"Imagine a realtor with infinite patience, unbridled dedication to meeting your goals, and a trustworthiness that you haven't found outside your grandmother - that's Erik! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Erik. He is incredibly knowledgeable and consistently goes the extra mile to ensure you get what you need.

Dara Parker, Vancouver (Buyer) Tue, 06 Feb 2018 09:55:34 +1000
"We could not have imagined a smoother home selling experience than the one provided by Erik. Less than a week after he helped us find the perfect new home, he had a marketing plan and open house schedule ready for our previous home. He was always available for questions and advice.
Thanks to his expertise and the beautiful photos and videos he arranged, Erik had our condo sold after the first weekend on the market. He expertly advised us through a multiple-offer scenario to receive more than our asking price.
Most importantly, Erik did everything with professionalism, knowledge, and a smile. If you are buying or selling a home, don't use anyone other than Erik Carlson - you won't find anyone better."
Tristen Gilchrist, Vancouver (Seller) Thu, 26 Oct 2017 09:18:47 +1000
"Erik went above and beyond to help us find a home that met our unique needs and wants. He played a strong advocate role and shared useful insights and perspectives with us throughout the process. Erik demonstrated professionalism and integrity at every turn. His pleasant and positive attitude made house-hunting a joy (I actually miss going to open houses with him!). I would recommend Erik in a heartbeat to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. I'm convinced he's the best there is."
Adam Hyslop, Vancouver (Buyer) Sat, 14 Oct 2017 09:06:58 +1000
"Having Erik on your side is going to make your home purchase a great experience. Buying a home especially for a first time homebuyer is quite overwhelming and scary, but Erik did whatever it took to make us feel comfortable by understanding our needs so well. Erik was always very thorough in his analysis of the market, pricing, home constructions and just very aware of all the small details. Even while he was away on vacation, he made sure we got what we needed. His co-worker, Milt, was also extremely helpful and professional. All in all a memorable first time home buying experience.
Some words for Erik - More than anything we appreciate the education you gave us that every prospective home owner should get!
We always like to work with people like you, Erik! My wife and I both agree that we have learnt a lot from you how to deal to clients, market yourself and handle everything so professionally!"

He made the process as stress-free as possible, and took the time to understand our needs and answer all of our questions.

We wouldn't hesitate to work with Erik again, and we would recommend him highly to others looking to find the perfect home."
Brian Johnson, Vancouver (Buyer) Fri, 16 Jun 2017 10:23:49 +1000

Erik is a very good realtor. Reliable and honest. My sale all went to the plan Erik laid out. No surprises.
Oakwyn staff were very professional and focused. Quality people who respected my home and neighbors during showings.
Very professional and honest. A great experience."
Paul stephens. Vancouver (Seller) Wed, 31 May 2017 08:58:22 +1000
"We knew Erik personally, so we knew in advance that we'd be working with a friend, and had confidence that he would work with our interests in mind! He was professional and friendly, easy to communicate with, advocated for us, and helped us secure the property we wanted. We would definitely work with Erik again and do not hesitate to recommend him!"
David, Vancouver (Buyer) Tue, 09 May 2017 10:13:30 +1000
"I appreciate how Erik listened and understood my needs. He patiently answered my questions and shared his insights throughout my search and my purchase. Erik was very professional and exceptionally thorough; He invested time in reviewing the documents before we made offers. I felt his enthusiasm and sincerity. When he had to be away to care for his newborn, he went the extra mile and made sure a colleague could guide me while he was away. His coaching and support gave me the confidence to seize the opportunity to buy in the West End. Erik is an excellent ally and resource, and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a realtor."
Michael Santos (Buyer) Tue, 14 Feb 2017 16:46:34 +1000

He was always available to us via text and email, gave us a lot of updates, was always quick to respond.
Provided thorough analysis of real estate comparables.
Barret DeMaere was also excellent! Assisted while Erik was away!
Erik is a genuine and honest realtor with integrity. I would recommend him to everyone."
Gina, Vancouver BC (Buyer) Tue, 13 Dec 2016 13:33:23 +1000
"Erik has been instrumental in my home ownership and selling journey. The care, balance, and perspective he provided was way beyond the call of duty. Erik is a realtor like none. He was right there to curate a perfect marketing campaign to connect prospective buyers with my home.

D. Roberts, Burnaby BC (Seller) Sun, 09 Oct 2016 09:18:04 +1000
"I chose Erik as my listing agent due to his thorough sales presentation and comparable market analysis. Erik spent considerable effort in developing the market analysis and presented it to me in great detail. As a result I had extreme confidence that his suggested list price was accurate. When he described his extensive marketing plan I knew he was the listing agent for me. He quickly arranged photographers and web and print publishers who met my tight schedule. Erik gave me lots of practical advice on how to prepare for the listing and generally guided me through the entire process. The sale was quickly and professionally handled such that I had complete comfort in the transaction. I suggest you engage Erik, whether you are selling or buying a property!"
Brian Mathae, Vancouver (Seller) Sat, 10 Sep 2016 04:14:15 +1000
"I never met Erik in person nor was I physically present at the property during the campaigning/ sale process. I felt that Erik worked very hard to keep me informed and make the process smooth for all parties involved.
Originally, I'd enlisted a discount realtor to sell my Burnaby condo, with no results after three months. Erik, however, made short order of the sale.
I was impressed with his clear and concise communication, his availability round the clock, and attention to detail. It was noticeable and very appreciated."
Frieda, Victoria (Seller) Sun, 28 Aug 2016 03:51:58 +1000
"Erik is awesome. Patient, caring, helpful, and extremely professional. Good looking too!"
Tim Ellison (Buyer) Fri, 24 Jun 2016 14:50:28 +1000

Stuart Cohn, Vancouver (Buyer) Mon, 13 Jun 2016 23:59:07 +1000

Jeanette Brown Sechelt (Buyer) Fri, 10 Jun 2016 02:10:21 +1000
"Erik went above and beyond in selling our place. His research right off the bat was great for us to get an idea on price. Having him there during the preparation time was amazing and we could have not asked for a better result. We will be selling our next house with Erik for sure."
Aaron Ursacki, downtown (Seller) Fri, 15 Apr 2016 05:52:48 +1000
"Erik Carlson made the sale of our Condo simple and easy. It was easy to ask questions around the process, and he always had answers on hand. Erik had great knowledge of the local market and gave us the necessary information to price the Condo appropriately. This all resulted in having extremely well attended open houses and receiving multiple offers. We could not have been more happy with the result, which is a credit to Erik and his dedication to the sale of the property."
Michael Murray, Vancouver B.C. (Seller) Thu, 14 Apr 2016 06:01:16 +1000
"Erik made the impossible possible by walking us through a smooth, effective, efficient, and satisfactory first home purchase! In downtown Vancouver! In 2016! Erik was very knowledgable of the neighbourhood's properties and community and always offered valuable and unbiased insights. What I liked the most about the experience was the fact that Erik was always empathetic, very easy to talk to, and able to understand our values and cater to them. He also went above and beyond in terms of recommendations and tips to make the experience easier. I'm super happy to have had Erik as our realtor!"
Daniela G, Vancouver (Buyer) Tue, 05 Apr 2016 12:21:24 +1000
"Erik made the whole process very easy and also made me feel comfortable while making my decision. it was a great experience the whole time and I knew he was very knowledgeable and realistic with both me and the market. Nothing but goods things to say about him and I would say he is a great representative for your Company.
I was extremely happy with Erik from the start, After our initial meeting I knew I would be using him as a broker. I had heard good things from friends which is why i decided to meet him"
John O'Connell, Vancouver (Buyer) Thu, 31 Mar 2016 13:14:48 +1000
"As a realtor, Erik Carlson's professionalism, knowledge of the local area and market values, and genuine caring made me feel in good hands as a purchaser. Erik spent the time to walk me through the building of my customer profile to find out exactly what I was looking for. This helped me to understand how to navigate the email updates that would be coming my way and gave a voice to the things I wished for in my new home. As a client, I always could depend on Erik for prompt communication of new listings and replies to any questions I may have. If there was ever missing information regarding a listing, he would investigate to find the answers prior to me even needing to ask. In this strong sellers market, being able to buy back-in has it's challenges. When it was time to put forth an offer, Erik created a prompt and detailed analysis of current comparable recent sales, as well as met with me in person to explain his findings. Knowing my budget, Erik made an informed suggestion of what price to go in at to secure the property. He also wrote a letter on my behalf to present alongside my offer to the seller. It is a scary thing to place an offer in a market where you need to go in above the asking price, but Erik made this feel as informed and safe as possible. It was his competitive offer pricing coupled with the letter that highlighted who I am and my desire for the property that ultimately secured the sale."

Dennis Parkinson Vancouver BC (Buyer) Tue, 13 Oct 2015 08:44:51 +1000
"I met Erik Carlson through a networking event and impressed by the way he introduced himself and mention how he enjoys the process of helping out first time home buyers. This made me remember him when it came time to make a first time home purchase.
He is very helpful in going through process for first time home buyers, and spending time with us in showings/viewings, providing information about buildings. He knew our needs.
Erik is always accessible with fast responses to our email inquiries and text messages.
He was great in supporting us when it came to making an offer and through the negotiation process. I would highly recommend Erik Carlson as he is trustworthy, highly knowledgeable about the market, and always accessible. He's great to work with and would definitely go back to him in the future when needed."

JC North Vancouver (Buyer) Fri, 18 Sep 2015 01:48:55 +1000
"Erik's enthusiasm and professionalism are amazing. The property sold in a few days over the listing price. Nevertheless, to before getting to that point Erik developed and implemented a comprehensive marketing plan that, I am convinced, got us the sale. From here on, I will strongly recommend Erik.
He should be the poster boy for professional REALTORS®"
Robert Laing Vancouver B.C. (Seller) Wed, 10 Jun 2015 04:12:25 +1000
"I cannot recommend Erik highly enough. He was fantastic at all points of our real estate search, bringing thorough thoughts and concerns along with an open mind and unbiased view to all the units we inspected (and might I add, he accompanied us on at least 50 viewings. He was a trooper as we struggled with our first ever real estate purchase).
When providing feedback, I always seek for constructive criticism to help individuals grow. That said, there isn't a single thing I can look to that Erik could have done better for my family. He was accommodating and pleasant in every respect. Whatever commission he is receiving is well deserved.
In the future, we will be requesting the help of Erik Carlson for all our real estate needs."

Jordan Elwood, Vancouver (Seller) Tue, 25 Nov 2014 11:54:08 +1000
"Having Erik as my realtor was like having my best friend helping me find the perfect home! Erik went way beyond selling me a condo; he had a deep mission and purpose finding me the perfect space. A home that is congruent with my wish list, character, values and budget. Erik’s expertise and knowledge made buying a home an effortless commitment. I appreciated his patience as he listened and directed me through my options, including calming my own fears. Erik cares. Everything went flawlessly and I knew Erik had my best interests at heart instead of his own, that’s what makes him exceptional!"
Dewald Oosthuizen, Vancouver (Buyer) Sat, 11 Oct 2014 09:50:55 +1000
"I am a first time home buyer and entering the housing market was a very scary prospect. I was referred to Erik by a friend and I am so thankful every day for having met Erik.
He was phenomenal in every aspect of my purchase. From the very first moment we met where he took the time to really understand my requirements, up until the moment the sale was confirmed, Erik was fantastic.
He was patient with the million questions I had, his knowledge of every housing was outstanding. He spent hourss communicating with me on the million questions I had and would let me know if he wasn't going to be available due to other meetings. Even the referalls that Erik made in terms of laywers, inspectors, bankers etc were fantastic.
I cannot imagine having gone through this process with anyone but Erik and I would absolutely without a shadow of doubt refer Erik to my friends and family."
