Eric Van Winkle was unbelievably patient with our family as we navigated the crazy COVID market in Mammoth. He was professional 100% of the time and quick to answer any and all questions and when asked for an opinion would offer a heartfelt answer. We continue to ask him questions even two months after closing and he promptly responds kindly and again quickly and professionally. Do yourself a favor and s...

Eric did an amazing job of working with me to help me find the perfect property in Mammoth! In an incredibly competitive market, Eric helped us move fast and walked me through every step of the process. We even closed early during the holidays! I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Eric again, or recommend him to anyone looking for property in Mammoth.

I can’t say enough good things about working with Eric from start to finish. He was very attentive to our very specific type of property we were looking for and any time a property came on the market that was a contender he was there the same day taking videos, photos, and all sorts of details down for us. He made the house shopping process fun and easy and once we found the right one he was there every ...

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!
