“Mr. Eric van Swol of your firm recently served as our agent on the sale of our townhouse in Columbia. My wife and I were extremely pleased with the professional and personalized service we received. As we are currently living in Rochester, we entered in the effort to sell our townhouse “long-distance” with quite a bit of anxiety. With Eric’s help, everything went very smoothly. He kept in touch with us on a regular basis concerning progress in selling and closing on the townhouse, and performed several tasks which were “above and beyond” his responsibility, thereby saving us considerable time and effort. In closing, we believe that outstanding service should be acknowledged and applauded. It was a pleasure doing business with Eric and your firm.” - Murray J, Rochester, New York
“Several months ago when we began looking for a home in the Columbia area, we were fortunate enough to have encountered your agent, Eric van Swol. After having been subject to countless “I have just the house for you” lines from high pressure real estate agents, it was refreshing, as well as gratifying, to find such a candid and knowledgeable real estate agent. Eric took the time to introduce and show us the myriad varieties of homes available in Columbia. While other real estate agents were only interested in an immediate sale, he sought earnestly to work with us until we were totally satisfied with our choice to purchase a new home in Tanglewood. After going through the formalities required of all agents, Eric persevered In helping us secure financing and continued to assist us in countless ways be- yond what his duties required. He called us many times just to check the progress of our home. His concern was truly more that of a new friend, than a business acquaintance. We are proud to call Eric our friend as well as our real estate agent. We certainly commend him to your organization. We know that friends we recommend to him who are thinking of moving into the Columbia area will be as equally well taken care of by Eric.” - Brenda and Alan F., Columbia, Maryland
