Learn about The Williamson Team here, so when we meet, its all about… YOU!
Erin is amazing! She’s Professional, courteous, friendly, trustworthy and works hard for her clients. Her years of experience shows and she is very thorough in everything she does. She always kept me informed until escrow closed. In my case, she went above & beyond her normal duties to assist me with handling Prop 60 paperwork that I qualified for. Erin was the realtor selling the property that I purchased. Another realtor took me to see this house who was pretty much useless and lacked experience in many areas of her job. My realtor did not return calls or keep me updated. If it weren’t for Erin, I would not have been able to get my dream house. Even tho my own realtor was horrible throughout escrow, Erin made my experience a pleasant one. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, hard working realtor. She has not only become my realtor for any future needs, but also a personal friend. I can’t say enough about her.
We are first time home sellers and the Williamson Team made it a breeze! They are extremely professional, attentive, responsive and diligent. From the moment we met them we knew they were very knowledgeable about the real estate market in north and south Orange County. They gave us advice and helped us to make our home look like a model home. Their marketing was amazing between the photos, videos, 3D home tour and brochures. We had an offer the day after the open house and were in a multiple offer situation. Erin and her team negotiated and got us the best price and terms!! Thank you for all your hard work Williamson team!! We have recommended them to all our friends and family that are considering a move
Folks there’s no easy way to put it but if you want to sell a house the right way then Erin is your choice. Hands down, done deal! How do I know? Well pay attention because here it is.
I have two homes to sell. One is Yorba Linda (great investment home). The other in Lake Elsinore (Say OUCH)! I put both properties on the market late last year WITH AGENTS NOT ERIN and I got no decent offers in nearly 6 months for either property. These agents were good guys but hey you can’t with something that isn’t working.
Ok so look, here’s where it gets good. I found Erin after fielding more than twenty-five agents. I hired two before that didn’t get the job done. This time around I was going to make sure I got the right one.
Here’s the moment you have all been waiting for! How do I know I picked the right person when I said, “ERIN I CHOOSE YOU!” This REAL ESTATE SUPERHERO SOLD BOTH MY HOMES IN TWO MONTHS! That’s right folks TWO MEASLY MONTHS. I had two agents before that could even get decent offers in SIX months. I hire Erin and she not only sells one in two months SHE SELLS TWO!
And wait, that’s not it. It only gets better. With the property in Yorba Linda we got multiple offers above asking in less than 1 week after the first showing. Let me say that again, TWO OFFERS ABOVE ASKING PRICE. That property is now closed. On the second property we received the highest offer 3 weeks after listing. That property is now in escrow.
Here’s where it’s just too good to be true. SHE LITERALLY TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING! Ok maybe I installed some knobs on some cabinets. Sure I moved some stuff out. But Erin took control of Painting, Landscaping, Staging, Cleaning, Design consultation, watering the grass, and getting rid of leftover junk a few days before close including dropping them off at the savers. Hell I even hired the lady she found to clean the property for my own home after.
That’s right folks. There’s no way an agent like this exists. Everything I just wrote has to be make believe. But even if there’s a small chance she does exist, you better make sure to give her a shot.
After interviewing 3 different real estate agents, we decided to go with Erin and don’t regret our decision. Erin and her team are professional, knowledgeable, understanding, and problem solvers. She was able to accommodate us with our needs and is quick to respond back to us. Erin helped us purchase a new home and followed up with us to make sure everything was fine. I would high recommend Erin and her team for your real estate needs.
This is the 2 nd home that Erin has sold for us, In both cases they sold fast and because of her knowledge and professional service and providing us with qualified buyers, If you want the best price and to sell your home quick , She is the one to contact!
Erin Williamson, with The Williamson Team is by far the greatest and hardest working realtor there is. Morning, noon and night she was there for my husband and I, helping us with find the perfect home. She listened to all of our wants and needs, all the endless emails and phone calls and found us the perfect home. Her passion and knowledge of finding and creating a beautiful home is what amazes me. It’s rare. We have used Erin and Danny before and would never use anyone else. They are an amazing team and I cannot recommend them more!!!
Erin is a top notch realtor. I have used The Williamson Team 3 times. She is there with you through every step of the process. Even after your transaction is complete, she is still there checking up on you to ensure you are happy. Erin and The Williamson Team are the best in the bushiness.
Erin went above and beyond all expectations while listing and selling our longtime home. Her resourcefulness in finding the right contractors for needed upgrades helped immensely. If you want a professional, personable and prompt realtor, Erin will surpass your expectations!
Team Williamson is the best. Period. They sold our home for almost $100,000 more than any other agent was even willing to list it for.
They are the most professional and knowledgeable Real Estate people I have ever met. We would not have sold our home for anywhere near what we received, without the work of Danny and his staff.
Thank you for a job well done!
My wife and I listed our house with Danny. He helped us select the best price to get the most views and most action on our listing. Our house hit the MLS Friday night, we had our first open house on Saturday and Sunday and had 9 Offers to sift through by Wednesday; several of which were over our asking price. Danny was able to help us through the entire process and made sure that the buyer and seller (us) were both informed through the entire process. Danny went over and beyond what I have ever seen any realtor do to make sure that all parties involved were satisfied with the end result. Thank you for all that you do
I would like to express my deepest thanks to Danny for helping us sell our old house. He never forgot to update us about the progress and even answered all our questions through email and phone. The whole experience was stress free and never had a hard time looking for potential buyers. I sold my house for the amount I wanted. It was a pleasure to meet you.
