About Eric–Buyer for Direct Property Buyer

Eric has always had a strong interest in real estate and business. After graduating from college, his first job was a leasing agent which helped him acquire a strong knowledge of Chicago’s neighborhoods. His first condo purchase for himself was a true “fixer upper.” Much of the work was done himself which strengthened and accelerated his desire to make real estate investing his career. As the Purchasing Manager for a national home buying company for over 7 years, Eric successfully negotiated and managed the purchase of over 500 houses. He was awarded with the national “Buyer of the Year” award for the most purchases in four of those seven years. Often meeting with homeowners and negotiating the deal directly, Eric always treated the sellers with the utmost respect, keeping the seller’s needs as the first priority. Now as managing member of Direct Property Buyer, Eric manages the purchase and disposition of houses covering seven counties in the Chicago area.

Shortly after starting in real estate, Eric obtained his managing broker’s license and started Spartan Residential, a real estate brokerage focused on investments. Eric’s specialty in buying many “as is” properties has helped his clients acquire investment properties as well as primary residences. Showing diversity in his skill set, Eric has negotiated deals for as low as one dollar and well over one million dollars. He is professional, discreet, and easily adjusts to new marketing trends, using his experience to assist his clients in making the best choices when buying, selling, or making investments.

While staying committed to real estate in Chicagoland, Eric enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters. Eric is the long-time captain of his adult soccer team, is a competitive golfer, recently took up water skiing, and enjoys running to stay in shape. A graduate of Michigan State University, Eric is an avid football and basketball fan.
