Thinking of buying a new home, but not sure if you’re ready? According to Erik Brubaker, one of the Eastern Shore’s top Realtors, now would be an excellent time to “jump off the fence” and investigate your options. Why now? Because, according to Erik, “Interest rates have continued to rise, and it doesn’t look like they are going to slow down or level out any time soon.”
Erik also encourages potential sellers to consider the advantages of acting quickly. Due to a shortage of houses for sale, “homes are selling extremely fast right now,” he says, noting that “the demand is so high that some sellers are getting multiple offers, sometimes above the listing price.” If you’re curious to know what your house might be worth in this unusual market, why not take a few minutes to phone Erik today? After touring your property with you, he’ll answer your questions, suggest a price, and chat about the many cutting-edge services that you can expect from him and his teammates.
And just who’s on Erik’s highly respected team? Aside from marketers, administrators, and mutually supportive Realtors, all under one roof are in an in-house mortgage company, a construction and remodeling company, a plumbing and HVAC group, a property management team, and even a moving-and-storage company—all ready to quickly serve virtually any need that you might experience during the buying or selling process. And to these resources you can add Erik’s knowledge of Delmarva’s towns and neighborhoods, his real estate experience, and his strong commitment to helping you sell or buy happily and successfully.
Erik entered the world of real-estate more than a decade ago after working for a time in the golf industry. (Erik has better than a 1.4 handicap and nearly qualified this year for the U.S. Open.) While serving as an inspector of foreclosed property in Arizona, he ultimately concluded that he was helping the banks, but not individuals. “I wanted to do something that would help people,” he decided. His next steps were to move to the Eastern Shore in 2009, earn his real-estate credentials (he’s now licensed in both Maryland and Delaware), and “learn the ropes” of the business. Seeking guidance and a job from Brandon Brittingham, the group’s leader, Erik told Mr. Brittingham, “I finally want to get into real estate, and I want to help people, and I want to do it the right way.”
Nine years later, Erik is an articulate, dedicated, highly successful professional who will do everything in his power to steer your real estate journey to a happy and financially pleasing conclusion, just as he has for countless clients, including many folks who chose to move to Delmarva from other regions.
Whatever your real estate plans—whether you’re looking to buy or sell near the beach, find a new family home in the city or the country, or move to a smaller place where you can enjoy retirement—your first step is to discuss the current market and explore your options with a friendly, knowledgeable professional. Take a moment now to contact Erik Brubaker. He’ll be delighted to answer your questions and, if you’d like, set an appointment to chat face to face.
