Working with Eric was an extraordinary pleasure, and we are beyond grateful for all of his support and help at every step of the process of listing and selling our house (which happened, from initial consultation to listing to closing, in just over five weeks!).
Eric's professionalism shines through every step of the process. We had a situation where time was extremely limited and we were overseas during the close. None of that proposed the slightest difficulty for Eric. I simply can’t imagine the process having gone more smoothly - from setting the price, consulting with us through negotiations with multiple offers, every detail of the inspection process handled with ease, and a straightforward and quick close that happened even while we were out of the country.
Eric knows what a treasure it is to be living in the beautiful part of the world that is Humboldt County, and his deep knowledge of the area and the local community, combined with his expertise on the local housing market, made him an absolutely invaluable partner as we navigated the process of selling our home. I could not recommend anyone more highly than him.-R Webley and J Alwood
My experience with Eric was outstanding. He understands the market, he is responsive and he is personable. He works hard to make sure the the needs of both the seller and the buyer are met. As a seller I felt that Eric always provided advice the helped to move the transaction forward. He was a delight to work with. -G Nesbitt
We had a delightful experience selling our longtime family home in 2019 with Eric’s help. Knowledgeable about marketing strategy and the use of digital technology and the internet, he also offered excellent advice on preparing the property for sale. Eric is a positive, personable, problem-solving professional who is completely dedicated to his clients. -Ralph and Melanie Faust
I have known Eric all of my life, I went on my first house tour with him and my parents when I was 6 months old. When it was time to find my first home, there was no question that it would be Eric that I would want to help me. Being a first time home buyer, he made this whole process easy and fun, he was there to help me every step of the way. Eric has been a local realtor for many years and has a colleague for every aspect of the process that was needed. I would highly recommend Eric for anyone that is looking for a home in our area, he is very responsive and just a great person! Thank you Eric!!! -M Hansen
Eric is great. The best real estate agent we've ever had. He helped us to get the property for way below the asking price. He negotiated free brand-new heater, water heater, and septic repairs. The whole escrow process went smooth with Eric's guidance. He called us almost every day with latest updates. We still use his advice on local contractors as he is very knowledgeable on anything property. -K and M Voronov
We have worked with Eric twice now and there is no one else we would rather work with. He’s honest, thorough, and has nothing but our best interests at heart. We highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for a realtor. -T and L Castagnetto
Eric is very enthusiastic and helpful. He was a good source of information about the characteristics and nuances of the various neighborhoods in the region. He was always readily available to answer questions, solve problems, and keep the transaction moving forward. -M Perkins
I was ambivalent to hire a realtor in the first place, but I was far too busy to sell my house myself. A friend recommended Eric so I gave him a call. I knew right away that he was a good guy, but what I wasn't expecting was the level of service that he provided preparing the house for listing and the amount of time and energy he put in to making sure my house was sold at a great price. Eric is a professional. He is thoughtful, a great communicator, dedicated, and if I could rate him with six stars I would. His positive outlook made the process stress free and successful. I highly recommend Eric whether buying or selling a home. -T Crockenberg
Eric Cecchin is a first class Realtor and person. He negotiated the sale of my house in Arcata, CA. Eric is great to work with because he follows up with every detail throughout the entire process, and is very responsive. He organized the cleaning, yard care, and professional real estate photos. He even shopped around for estimates for a sewer replacement required for the sale of the house. I highly recommend Eric for listing and/or purchasing.–K Kotaka
I relocated to Humboldt County last year to be close to my grandchildren which was a huge undertaking. I tried working with a few realtors in Eureka who had been recommended from my previous realtor in Sonoma County. After a few months I was left feeling very disheartened and unimpressed. Then one day my car needed a windshield repair and I told the mechanic my frustration at trying to find a house in the area. Right away without any hesitation he recommended Eric. Said, "you have to call him". Well, I did and if you are looking for a house in Humboldt County you also would be very impressed with the level of service Eric provided. He understood my housing needs, listened and was very insightful and knowledgeable. Needless to say I have recently found a lovely home that suits my life perfectly.Eric is very reliable. My phone calls, texts and questions were answered right away. Thank you Eric for working so hard and being there to put my mind at rest in so many instances. -Rosemary Holifield
Eric is so easy to work with, he is attentive and conscientious.I really appreciated how he was always available by phone, email, text or in person.It felt like a win-win for us and the buyers.Thanks Eric for keeping the whole process so positive.–Matt Malkus

Eric was able to assess our property and what it would take to sell it from the first meeting. Then, as we followed his advice, we had accepted a full price offer within a week.

We have highest regard for Eric as a professional and a person and recommend him without reservation. Truly a great experience with Eric as our realtor. -Karen P.
