  1. One word: PATIENCE! If you want an agent that will help you to find the house of your dreams, never push, and have your best interests at heart, Eric is your man. it took a while for us to find a good match in terms of price, neighborhood, and commute, but after living in our home for nearly two year, we couldn't be happier.

  2. Eric helped us to pick our dream house 2 years ago (2009). The experience was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable of the housing market, and houses in this area, and used his great negotiation skills to get what we wanted at the price we wanted. He was always very timely, organized, and knows what the customer wants. Great agent and would definitely recommend to anyone. Great customer service.

  3. Eric Hurvitz is a stellar buyer's agent. Usually I do not bother to write reviews, but it has been such a pleasure to work with Eric that I simply must. Over the past two years, Eric has shown my husband and I about 15--20 different homes for sale. We had some very specific ideas in mind about what we needed/wanted in our first home, and Eric was extraordinarily patient and helpful the entire time. With his help, we finally settled on the right one for us. Then, with complete professionalism and thorough knowledge, Eric guided us through every step of the home-buying process. As first time home buyers, we had many questions, and did not understand all of the terminology and/or steps involved. However, Eric made sure that he thoroughly understood our questions/concerns, so that he could then address them as accurately and clearly as possible. When we encountered some discouraging setbacks involving the home's appraisal, Eric was incredibly adept at helping us work through them. We ended up with the best scenario possible! We have now been settled in our gorgeous home for just over 3 months, and we could not be happier. Thank you so much, Eric!

  4. Eric helped my wife and I buy our very first home. He was always willing to answer my questions day or night. It was pleasure working with Eric.

  5. Eric did a wonderful job selling our home. This was our first time selling a home, and Eric made the process very easy and understandable. His excellent Internet marketing and local network enabled us to receive several offers in only a few short weeks on the market. This is even more remarkable because we listed our home around the holidays, which is typically a bad time to be selling. He provided us with good advice and didn't pressure us to take any offers. Eric was extremely responsive via phone, text, and email. He took care of everything for us, making the process virtually worry-free. I would recommend Eric to anyone looking to sell a home in the State College area.

  6. Eric helped me buy a wonderful house in 2014. He is very knowledgeable about all the ins and outs, and most importantly was very patient with me and reassuring in manner - which made a stressful process a lot simpler! The fact that I don't live in State College was never an issue because of how helpful Eric was through the entire process, and I would recommend him wholeheartedly and look forward to working with him again.

  7. Lindon & Mailene Kwock

    I have had the privilege of working with Eric in buying a home in the Bellefonte/State College area. From the first phone discussion to meeting in person, Eric has provided exceptional service with the difficult of process of finding a new home. Even after closing on our house, Eric has continued to help us settle in our new home and area. We have owned several homes and Eric has easily been the best realtor we have ever worked with.

  8. Andrew & Kristen Baxter

    Eric was a great agent for first-time buyers like my wife and I. He walked us through the process and was able to clear up a lot of the confusion along the way. He was always friendly and prompt with replies to our questions, and was supportive when houses got bought before my wife and I could decide whether to make an offer.

  9. Eric is extremely knowledgeable of the housing market and various locations in and surrounding State College, PA, and makes a good effort to be available and work with our schedule for showings. When we were interested in putting an offer in on a house that was in a suboptimal location and had design elements that would make resale extremely difficult, Eric was quick to point these things out rather than urging us make an offer, even though it could have been a quick commission for him. He is a thorough, honest, and truly caring agent that wants you to get the most out of what will likely be the largest purchase of your life. As a first time homebuyer, I have no basis for comparison, but from some of the horror stories I have heard about other agents, I would definitely do business with him again in the future and also recommend him to family and friends! Give him a chance - you won't be disappointed.

  10. Richard & Susan Caschera

    We were lead to Eric from a friend, and now we are happy to call him one of our FRIENDS! His advice and leadership was answered by the sale of our home under contract in TWO DAYS! Service after under contract was great! He made all the necessary arrangements and his follow-up was on spot! Thanks Eric and keep up the great work!

  11. I purchased a home in State College, PA, December 2014 after transferring to a new job in the area. [He was] straight forward with the expectations for both of us. He understood my housing needs and price points. He set time for us to visit homes we both suggested. He knew better my needs and showed me a home not considered. He had the contacts to facilitate the purchase. A time table was set and meet. Closing occurred with surprising ease. It was a good clean purchase in a timely manner.

  12. Edward & Neng McKeon

    My wife and I interviewed Eric to learn more about his experience, and we were very impressed right from the start. Once we chose him to be our agent, he was very thorough and detailed in getting our home listed. Along the way we experienced several unexpected obstacles, and Eric was very patient in working with us to resolve the situations in a timely manner. In the end, we were quite satisfied with how everything turned out. We would highly recommend Eric.

  13. Barry & Susan Kroeker

    Eric was both our seller's and buyer's agent. He was extremely responsive, knowledgeable about the market, and was able to explain the processes of buying and selling extremely well. He gave excellent advice and made us feel as though we were his only clients. He went out of his way to be sure we were treated fairly by both the sellers of our new home and the buyers of our old home. He never pressured us in any aspect of our purchase or sale, and led us with much wisdom due to his extensive experience in the field. I was dreading the processes of selling our old home, and buying the new one, but Eric made both very positive experiences and we were thrilled with both the final purchase and selling prices. I would highly recommend Eric Hurvitz to anyone looking for a professional, experienced, kind, and generous realtor!

  14. Katrina Wehr

    I was under a tight timeline to relocate to State College for a job I was starting in a month, and I had no idea whether or not I could even be considered for a mortgage, let alone find a home that would work for my lifestyle. As a first time homebuyer with very limited understanding of the process, Eric was very patient and informative. While I thought I had a specific type of property and location in mind (and wasn't very open to going outside of that) Eric showed me what I thought I wanted and was able to let me figure out that I was actually looking for something different. He brought me into a different neighborhood that I never would have considered on my own, and that's where I ended up buying and I couldn't be happier. Even on Memorial Day weekend, he worked to get my offer submitted knowing that I was starting my job in the next week.

  15. John & Erika Heinz

    I strongly recommend Eric. He takes the time to fully understand what you are looking for and then delivers. We had a situation in which the lot next to our house went for sell while we were on vacation. We were unaware this was being listed and didn't want someone else to purchase the lot and build a house next to us. Eric recognized where the listing was located and knew about our situation. He was able to act on it and save us the horror of coming back from vacation with a sold sign next to us. This shows his dedication to his clients and understanding of their needs.

  16. Eric always made himself available when I was looking at homes. He was quick to respond and schedule appointments with other real estate agents to get the showings I asked for. After I found the right home, I was unable for quite some time to get the seller to agree on a price that fit my budget, but Eric continued working to reach an agreement even after I had given up and finally we had a deal. After a deal was struck he made it easier than I could have ever imagined, he took care of everything until the papers were signed and I moved in. It was a great experience and I would recommend him to anyone.

  17. It was a pleasure getting to work with Eric. We relocated to the area from Florida, and Eric was great as far as setting aside time and getting homes scheduled for us to tour during the brief time we were here to look around. He gave us great insight on the area and the neighborhoods we visited, and was there every step of the way through the closing. We truly appreciate his expertise and professionalism.

  18. Eric helped us to find the perfect 2nd home in the State College area. He was willing to work with us on our limited availability to be in the area, often working on his weekends. He showed us any house that we saw and then some others to give us a good perspective of what was available for what price, pointing out faults or things we would need to fix as he saw them. His help from start to finish was appreciated

  19. Ioanna Mina

    He came highly recommended to me and I highly recommend him to anyone. 1. He is very hard working and persistent. I needed to sell my rental condo while living miles away. He took care of everything! He arranged for cleaning and updating quotes, rental permits, carpet cleanings, landscaping, and the list goes on. He managed the tenants (not the easiest bunch), and the clients. 2. Unlike many agents, he is very responsive. He always returns calls and messages promptly. 3. He is a hard core local. He has the experience and knowledge of the town and the locals. This helped in dealing with the association and finding the (unexpected) buyer. 4. He negotiated a price that worked really well for both parties. I didn’t even need to drive for the closing! It was great working with you Eric, best of luck!

  20. Joost & Kathleen Keesing

    Our whole experience was great. He had everything ready to put on market after we returned from Florida and the whole process was flawless. He represented us well from beginning to end. We would definitely recommend him to friends.

  21. Karen Schultz & Martin Higgins

    Eric did a wonderful job marketing and ultimately selling our house in an extremely challenging market. His advice was right on and he was helpful and patient. He made the entire experience painless!

  22. Eric represented us very well. He was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the home buying process. Eric helped us think about our current needs, and our needs down the road. His service certainly seemed tailored to our styles, situation, and needs. We’ve already referred family!

  23. Stephen Holoviak & Linda Hanagan

    I would absolutely refer family and friends to Eric. We met Eric at an open house and appreciate his approach! We had been to lots of open houses where we felt either dismissed or pressured by the agent. Eric mostly listened to us which allowed him to understand our situation and our needs. We have actually already been referring people his way.

  24. Kurt & Lydia Kroeker

    Eric showed us all the houses we wanted to see multiple times – he gave us honest opinions, he communicated new info ASAP, he laid out alternatives, very diligent, and always on top of things. He tenaciously pursued our best interest and was honest, friendly, and explained unfamiliar things clearly.

  25. John & Anne McMillan

    Eric did a great job representing us and offering advice. Even when I couldn’t get to town fast enough to tour a new listing, Eric offered to skype with us as he walked through the house with his phone. He helped us compare it to a similar property next door and decide on a fair bid. Eric clearly knows the area and market. He helped us locate a neighborhood outside of town where we found a much nicer house for the money. He helped us find contractors to make minor repairs. I have already and will continue to recommend Eric and his services.

  26. Alfred & Martha Coren

    We couldn’t have been more happy with Eric’s outstanding service. From day one, helping with the stager, suggestions for sprucing up the house, Eric was on top of every detail. And, the house sold in four days!

  27. Bryan and Lauren Brightbill

    We felt very well represented by Eric. He was very knowledgeable and we will and have recommended him to friends or family. Eric made sure we understood the process and took the right steps to get into our first home. He was patient, kind, efficient, and great to work with overall. Thank you, Eric!

  28. Stephane Gawlowicz and Johey Verfaille

    I felt we were well represented. Eric is very enthusiastic about his profession and very dedicated. He is obviously very knowledgeable, especially about the State College area. He immediately made us feel welcome and like friends, important since we are new to the area. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

  29. Davis & Bea Clapp

    Eric immediately saw the potential for a quick sale. He stayed in constant communication and kept us well informed. He went above and beyond what we have experienced with previous realtors.

  30. Joe Davis

    Eric was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt comfortable asking him any and all questions about the home buying process. He would answer my questions even when the answer didn’t benefit him. He will be the only realtor I refer to any friends or family in the area.

  31. Rich & Sue Caschera

    Eric was always well prepared for all our needs and questions. You are well represented when in his care! You are friends and family with his advice in handling your sale. We liked the web address of the house – very cool! Friday AM calls were great – good weekly review!

  32. Michael & Rebecca Robison

    We found Eric to be extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the processes of buying and selling. We will definitely refer friends and family. He was always responsive to texts and emails within the same day and often right away. Always aware of all the details of the contracts for both buying and selling that were specific to us. Super friendly and helpful! The whole process was a pleasure working with Eric.

  33. Michael Montgomery

    Eric was great. He was punctual and followed up on things, kept in communication with me. Overall he took care of most everything and I greatly appreciate it.

  34. Lindon & Mailene Kwock

    Excellent service. Hard working. Knowledgeable. Will refer to future clients.

  35. Judy & Bob Burgess

    Eric did a wonderful job representing us and our property. He was able to find an interested party without us even having to list our property. This made our experience stress free!

  36. Bethanna & Bill Edmiston

    Eric went to bat for us on negotiations – even kept us from ignoring or pay for problems with house. Got us a great price and got seller to fix issues. Best of all got the contract settled quickly.

  37. John & Joy Ewing

    Eric was always on our side and represented our needs, thoughts, concerns very well. Even when things got tricky he was willing to go to work to help us solve it! Was there to help guide and find information through the process of selling AND buying and the mess in between! Even after the sale and purchase he is helping wrap up the loose ends.

  38. Robert Beadle

    It seemed that Eric represented me in the purchase. He worked it from the point of view of what was best for me and not the seller. Additionally, he had a plan to tour homes. He showed me a home that was unaware to me, and I purchased it. He knows the area and has a feel for the clients’ interest in the area.

  39. Chris and Lisa Morelli

    In the time we have known Eric (3 years now) he has helped us buy two homes and sell one! He held our hands through it all and I don’t know if we could have done it without him. The process had many, many bumps and Eric always had a solution. P.S. We absolutely adore Bellefonte. But I do miss the meat market in Millheim!

  40. Jessica Dolan

    I’ve known Eric a very long time on a friendship level. It was awesome to work with him on a professional level as well. He is in my top 3 realtor referrals for sure!

  41. Curtis Shulman

    I was nervous since it’s a new process for me. Eric made it comfortable and was very honest. Only good things to say. No doubt for my next home he will be my realtor for as well.

  42. Greg & Sharilyn Morano

    Eric has been keeping us informed for two years now of properties that may interest us. When the house became available he was informative and accommodating during the entire process. He is still available through this process to help us out in whatever we need. We appreciate his professionalism in such a warm and friendly manner.

  43. Karen Paczkowski

    Eric was a great help in selling my house. Very supportive. Knows the market and respected my concerns for selling my home. Thanks!

  44. Duane & Adrienne Eichenlaub

    We could not be more pleased with our experience with Eric. He was patient with us; making sure we saw as many homes as we needed to ensure we found the perfect home for us.

  45. Tom & Theresa Martin

    Eric was honest and professional. He provided contacts for the service providers we needed and even scheduled and met inspectors and estimators at the property we were considering. Eric was always prompt, offered advice when we asked and accepted respectfully when we choose other options. Working with Eric was easy because he made sure we met all the terms and deadlines of our sales agreement and submitted changes when we requested them.

  46. Fran Levin

    Eric was the best from the beginning. He took a serious interest in our plight and was determined he could find the right place for my mother. She became a first time home buyer at age 86! I tell everyone about Eric. He’s the best!

  47. Dan Francke

    Mr. Hurvitz was a great asset when purchasing my home. He was very patient and informative throughout the buying process, and as a result, I ended up with the perfect house for me! Being a State College native myself, I could tell that Eric had an intimate knowledge of the area, and he was invaluable in helping me to decide which houses were worth a look, and which ones to look past. If I ever need to buy another home in the area, there is no one else I would even consider using as my Realtor. Thanks Eric!

  48. Charlene Morett

    Eric is one of the most diligent real estate people that I have ever met and there was never any question that he had my best interests at heart. I have also spoken to others who have had the pleasure of working with Eric, we can’t say enough wonderful things about him and the job he does.
