Client Testimonials

It has been a pleasure to work with Erik as our real estate agent. We met Erik through soccer, felt he was a great guy and are happy to say that we are glad to have had him to represent us as our agent. Erik was always there to help with whatever we needed and he went above and beyond to support us all throughout the process and in finally getting the sale through. Thanks Erik for all you have done! Merle W.

We have known Erik for about 5 years on his role as a soccer dad with our kids and as a fellow team member in our triathlon club. Based on our experience with him it was an obvious choice when we needed an agent to work with us. His dedication as a parent, his determination as an athlete paid off during our transaction process and we could not have been happier. We give him without hesitation our highest recommendation! Jose G.

My wife and I highly recommend Erik Hoffacker and Wilmington Real Estate Info. He is an excellent realtor, a great negotiator, is responsive, responsible and very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. Thank you, Erik, for an outstanding job! Jim S.

Betty and I wanted to thank you for your efforts in helping us buy our house. Considering the fact that we were living in Durham and had just sold our house there, and we were also expecting our first grandchild around the same time we were hoping to move, you went out of your way to help us find a house, getting all the paperwork needed for a seamless process, and since then you have helped us with any questions regarding the area. Everything worked out well, and I firmly believe that your effort was the primary reason. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Thanks again, Mike and Betty L.

As first time buyers we had no idea what was involved in buying a home and being able to contact Erik at any time with our questions was a comfort for us both. Erik answered all of our questions and told us what to expect during every step in the process. His knowledge of the home buying process and willingness to explain any details we asked about, no matter how small, made a complicated and stressful process much easier for us.

We really appreciate the personal attention Erik gave to our situation and we would highly recommend Erik to anyone buying a home.

Thank you so much Erik. You've been wonderful to work with and we appreciate all you've done for the sale of our lot. If ever someone needs a realtor down that way, I will certainly recommend you!! Fondly, Elena B.

We really appreciate everything that you did for us in purchasing our new home. We absolutely love it! Although it seemed to be a “cluster” at first, with your help, we saw Laurie’s black design book come to life.

It was a real pleasure getting to know you and the people in the Wilmington area along the way. Everyone has been so nice and helpful. Dealing with a client from out of state and building a new home is a challenge for anyone, but you made us feel comfortable through out the whole process.

We will be recommending you and Secof Construction to anyone we meet who is looking for a place in Wilmington. Thanks again for all of your help.

We began looking at properties five years ago. Hesitant to sell a home we loved where we had raised our sons, it was with both excitement and anxiety that my husband and I started considering a move to a new home that better fit us. We brought these mixed feelings to our search and to Erik. Erik never rushed us and patiently supported our process. During those years we would have weeks when we called Erik every few days with questions about homes and then months when we put our search aside. During that time my husband’s mother moved to an assisted living facility. Erik connected us with someone that helped us clear out her home and prepare it to list. In a few weeks it sold. A few months ago, with his help, we found a house listed as a short sale in which we could see ourselves living. We had finally become ready to list our home. In a few days it sold. Thanks, Erik, for going above and beyond. Marty H.

I was put in touch with Erik Hoffacker through a good friend of mine as my best friend and her husband were looking for an investment property here in Wilmington North Carolina. Erik worked with worked with me just like I was the one who was buying the property.

Ultimately, I put the two parties together and Erik was able to find a great investment property for them. It was a short sale property, which is sometimes complicated for all parties involved, but Erik always had patience and the perserverance to keep the process going. Erik is always professional and I must say one of the most responsive people I have ever met! I know when I am ready to buy, Erik will be the person who will guide me through the process as I know he treats his clients very well!

My husband and I feel like we've hit the realtor jack pot with Erik Hoffacker, a dedicated and professional agent filled with integrity who always has our best interests at heart. I feel 100% comfortable trusting Erik with any of our real estate needs and anything else for that matter; he's a down to earth guy who will go the extra mile in helping you. Six years ago we decided to relocate to a beach town, and he offered us invaluable information on the area and in helping us buy our first home. We stayed in touch over the years, and he graciously helped both my parents and sister who were interested in the Wilmington North Carolina area. It was a no brainer who to turn to when we decided to sell our first home. Erik quickly negotiated with a buyer and followed up with us on everything by calls, texts, and emails. We always felt updated, and he was consistently available to explain anything we didn't understand in the process. Erik will be the first person we call when we decide to buy again! Sharon S.

Moving can be very stressful. Moving to a different state is even more stressful! Thank you Erik Hoffacker for making it so much easier. We love our first home in North Chase and appreciate all the work you put in helping us start our life here in beautiful Wilmington North Carolina. Scott B.

First let me just say, thank you! Jason and I appreciate all you have done over the last three months for us. As I have told you before, you are one of the best realtor's I have ever had the privilege of working with (even before we had a contract with you, you dedicated your services to our needs). There were times when I was right there at the edge of insanity, and you would call and give me assurances that all would be alright, and it was. The process of buying a home from a thousand miles away, you made easier than if I had been there in person, for this words can not express our gratitude! As we all know I am not that easy of a client, yet you hung right in there to ensure Jason and I had the home we were looking for. Never was there a time that I called and you did not answer or return my call immediately, you were there looking out for our best interest right up to the end and beyond. With your dedication and hard work for the both of us, we have went to settlement, and are looking forward to our big move. Jason and I will always recommend your services to our friends and fellow coasty's!! Thank-you Jason & Brandy C.

My wife and I were property virgins until last Wednesday. We were nervous about the whole process not only because it was our first time buying, but because we lived 400 miles away. Erik ensured me that he could get us through this process smoothly. That's exactly what he did. He did a fantastic job keeping me informed and minimizing my time spent worrying about everything. He went out of his way to ensure my family made a smooth transition to the area. Basically, all I had to do was pick a house and show up at closing. I would recommend Erik Hoffacker to anybody that's looking for a outstanding agent. Blake W.

It has been my pleasure working with you on my recent home search that resulted in finding our new home on Kirby Smith Drive. The particulars of working with a very choosy architect as a client made for a process that was longer than I think either of us imagined. Still, I appreciated very much all of your patience, communication, and hard work during the search and Meredith and I both are thrilled with the new home.

I would be more than happy to recommend you for anyone with needs in real estate buying or selling and would also be happy to provide a reference for you if ever needed. Thank you again and Happy New Year in 2012.

hired Erik Hoffacker upon a referral from a friend when another agent I had hired just did not work out. While the previous agent wasn't getting any showings, Erik came in and very professionally explained his marketing strategies, plan of attack and made me feel at ease right off the bat. He did not promise me the moon and stars, but gave me a very realistic overview of the state of the market, how many showings he hoped to achieve per month and how he planned to get those showings scheduled with marketing techniques from cross marketing to internet searches to even using QR Codes and YouTube videos.

His marketing of my home definitely paid off as the showings I started getting on my house after he took control exceeded everything we had hoped to have. In under 2 months Erik had my house under contract and worked additionally hard securing a lease/ purchase option for my house's sale that worked to the advantage of the buyer as well as myself, the seller.

Erik is professional, a pleasure to work with and very good at putting together creative pieces of the puzzle to make a sale happen. One thing that impressed me too was his work ethic. If he said he would be at my house at 3:00 pm for an appointment, then at 2:59 the doorbell was ringing. He always returned calls promptly, kept me informed of everything going on, answered all my questions and I never ever felt anything but at ease that he had my best interest at heart and was doing everything possible to take care of my real estate needs.

I would recommend Erik Hoffacker to anyone needing a great agent! I only wish everyone handled their business as professionally and well as Erik! He is a true asset to the real estate world.

To say Erik Hoffacker is an outstanding agent is an understatement to the fullest. We just sold our home this past week in what has been a several months long ordeal. Erik was on top of everything the entire way and dealt with issues that would have made me say 'forget it!' several times over (speaking as a former Realtor!). His patience, professionalism, follow-up, response time and negotiating abilites went far beyond the extra mile. He has made more of an impact on our life than he knows and we will be forever grateful for him handling the sale of our home! We didn't think it was possible and Erik made it happen. Thank you Erik and Remax Essential a million times over. Ashley Taylor

I would like to take a moment to personally thank Erik Hoffacker his outstanding effort in assisting me with the sale of my home. Recently, I fell under difficult financial times, and was left with no other option except to begin the process of a short sale. Erik took the time to meet with me at my convenience, and carefully explained my options. He was very thorough in his explanation of what lay ahead.

From day one, Erik and his team worked diligently to market my home. In my opinion, one of the biggest fears of a homeowner in distress is the concern of being taken advantage of by banks, attorneys, etc. I cannot express how at ease I felt when Erik informed me that he and his team were experts in all aspects of the short sale process, and that their number one priority was to look after my best interest. Erik made sure to put my mind at ease by intelligently answering the multitudes of questions I had throughout the process. They made sure to always make time for me, and made me feel as if I were their number 1 client.

Once an offer was made on the home, Erik walked me through the process of closing. He worked tirelessly to negotiate with the banks, and we settled on the deal that was best for me. I really cannot believe how easy they made it seem.

Again, I cannot express how grateful I am to Erik for helping me sell my home in this tough economy. This is a huge financial and stressful burden that has been lifted off my shoulders due to their hard work. Distressed property or not, I would certainly recommend Erik for anyone looking to sell their home. Fantastic job guys! Thanks again!
Travis C.

WOW !!!! That's the best word I can describe how I feel right now.

The listing looks magnificent, the pictures are outstanding (I was online talking to my daughter via IM when I was looking at it and she couldn't believe how amazing and big her room looked!) and I am breathing the biggest sigh of relief right now because I really feel like you have done everything exactly like you said, when you said and exceeded my expectations on how things would be handled and look!

I feel so confident that my house is in the right hands -- thank you for that feeling of calm! And thank you so much for keeping me updated on everything as it is happening. You ROCK.
Donna Foland

I just wanted to thank you for selling my house after no one else could. I loved how you kept in constant touch with me throughout the entire process. It was a pleasure working with you and I would highly recommend you to anyone. You were extremely professional and I appreciate all your help. Linda L. Albers

I'd recommend Erik to anyone looking for a home. Just relocated to Wilmington. The service and attention offered by Erik can't be beat. Expert knowledge of the area. Understands the needs of the client. I'm so happy in my new home. Robin Cowie Nalepa

Use Erik Hoffacker--a great agent! Peter Baish

Erik is a results oriented professional who works responsably and professionally with his clients. I can attest that Erik has achieved deals that others may have not been able to navigate. Mark Schmidt

Erik is a detailed and extremely professional real estate resource. I had the pleasure of working with Erik in 2008. Erik was always available to answer any of my questions and concerns. I would not hesitate to utilize Erik again if the need should arise. Gary Stevens

Erik is part of a team with a modern service oriented concept. I have experienced the in-depth detailed work that goes into every listing. Erik kept me updated on any information involving my property as well as like properties in the area during the listing. He retains an unusual level of organization throughout the process that will maximize your percentages of reaching the desired outcome. Dr. Chris Glendenning

Erik was recommended to me by a close friend that couldn't say enough about his expertise in the area of short sales. From start to finish, Erik managed the process and made it as "hands off" and low stress for me as possible. He made me aware of the pros and cons upfront and educated me on all sides of the transaction. Being an investor and having gone through other nightmarish short sales, I can say from experience that Erik's knowledge, willingness to help and attention to detail sets him apart from other realtors. Neil Whittington

Erik has captured both the old and new world abilities, listens and adapts, with great follow thru. He also has a very high energy level, with attention to the details. Erik is an asset to anything he puts his mind to, business, family,etc. He doesn't always have too be right, but he will always be ethical, thoughtful, respectful and professional. Erik will meet you at finish line or the closing with a smile. Erik on your team puts you a step ahead of the pack. Bill Bowen

We hired Erik during a very tough time in the market, his thoroughness and deep understanding of real estate in the Cape Fear area was invaluable. I would highly recommend using Erik again, and we plan to the next time! Neal Taylor

Karen became our agent at the recommendation of my son and we have been very pleased that we made the change! Karen was easy to communicate with and saved us money as she made some changes to our existing policies for our home and autos. I found her to be extremely pleasant and when meeting her for the first time felt as if I was talking to an old friend. She checks in periodically to make sure all our insurance needs are being met and they very much are. We are very happy to recommend Karen to anyone who wants great coverage and an agent who we feel is truly “on our side.-Kathy and Chris Underhill Karen made the process of insuring my home so easy. She was very helpful and efficient-- I can always count on her to respond to my many questions very quickly! Betsy Kiser

aren has always provided outstanding service. It doesn't matter if it's early in the morning or even a holiday, Karen's always there to help. She makes the insurance process so easy. Christine Hughes
