We have interviewed several realtors during our time in Austin and even worked with different realtors when we bought our first home here in 2011, it was not a pleasant real estate experience the first time around. I also work in affordable housing development, so I've seen my share of terrible brokers. In stark contrast, Erika is an amazing realtor, she's an incredibly strong advocate for her clients, very patient, and extraordinarily knowledgeable. She helped us get the best price for our Austin home when we sold it, and she even got us a great house under contract in Hyde Park for less than $500K when we were buying. She knows the market really well, is a total pro throughout the buying and selling process, and was such a breath of fresh air for us. She never pushed us one way or another, I totally trust her opinion and I know that she 100% of the time has my family's best interests i…

I would work with no one else in the city for my real estate needs. Hire her, she's an absolute dream to work with throughout the home-buying and selling process.

After searching several agents, typical friends' recommendations, family recommendations, etc. we did our own research. Our house was not a cookie-cutter sale so there was a lot of go outside the box, very hard comps, ensuring the type of client that would appreciate the house got to see it, etc. We settled on Erika at Allure Real Estate. Erika understood older homes and the potential for the house. The prep, the professional people she brought in for staging, and the photos were top-notch. With her laid-out plans we knew what to expect, her constant updates, and of course her tireless work, we felt like we were her most important client, not just a number. She priced the house correctly, and because of her quick action in dealing with offers, we ended up selling for 120,000 over asking. If not for her constant monitoring of the offers, I firmly believe we would be 75,000 below what we f…

Whatever people complain about agent fees, believe me, the good ones deserve every single cent they make and I count Erika as one of the best!

The cross-country relocation process is undoubtedly a stressful one, but Erika made this transition as seamless as possible. She helped us search for homes in Austin while we were still living in Boston with very short notice to do so. During our house hunting trip to the city, she took extremely great care of us, driving us around the various neighborhoods of Austin and showing us countless rentals until we found an area and home that we knew we would be happy in. Her help was invaluable in securing a great home in a favorable location, working with the negotiations of the lease, and even making sure we were comfortable and settled into our new place. We can't thank Erika enough for all of the time and effort she gave to us in such a friendly, professional manner that made our 2,000 miles move to Austin that much easier.

Erika has helped us rent out our home a year ago, and now she is helping us sell the same house. We wanted to work with Erika to sell our home, based on two things; she professionally and efficiently handled our rental property and she has incredible integrity and follow-through. Okay, a third factor is that she is an awesome individual, a total pleasure to work with! Erika is both positive and pragmatic. She has made our home sale as seamless as possible. She is always open to questions and is great at offering suggestions or tidbits to help navigate what can oftentimes be a difficult process. Because she is so knowledgeable about realty business, we always felt confident in her guidance. We highly recommend her to anyone that needs a realtor, for buying, selling, or renting! The best in the business!

I worked with several different realtors before meeting Erika so I can say without a shadow of a doubt that she is a gem in her craft. She was so sweet and kind but gave me very realistic goals and expectations. She treated us like family. She always stayed in communication with us constantly throughout the entire transaction. There was nothing that was done that I didn't know about or that she didn't explain to me in great detail. As a hard-working wife and Mommy myself, I admire her work ethic and ability to multi-task on so many different levels or projects. Her attention to detail is unmatched. I can't wait to work with her again! When it comes to such a big purchase, you want your loved ones with someone who will take care of them as much as you do. That's why I will always refer them to Erika!
