Eric did an amazing job of working with me to help me find the perfect property in Mammoth!

Buying a home with Eric was an amazing experience with Eric! His insight on the area and guidance was appreciated and what makes him shine above other agents. He went above and beyond working with us to find the perfect location and was more than professional and responsive down to the final signature.

Eric has been our real estate agent for two places in Mammoth. He is great! He was always helpful, quick to answer every question, very professional, and just a nice guy! We had the best experience with him!

We have worked with Eric Van Winkle TWO TIMES now. Once on the buy side. Once on the sell side. He is not only a class act, but a real pro. Plus he's a super nice guy. I have never endorsed a real estate agent before, but I can 100% endorse Eric.
