Eric was far and above more knowledgeable than his competitors. We couldn't have found a better realtor. If you're considering "For sale by owner" or considering using a realtor other than Eric, DON'T! I certainly wouldn't want Eric on the other side of the negotiating table.

‐ Meagan and Tyler Risdon, Charlotte

Eric was awesome to work with throughout the entire process, but what really set him apart is that he helped us even after closing. He was willing to recommend and help arrange painters, cleaners, etc. He truly went above and beyond and we trusted him to help us find the right Home.

‐ Laura, Charlotte

We've worked with Eric on past home purchases and he continues to provide excellent customer service as well as incredible market knowledge. Our home was well priced and we received an offer the first day it was on the market. We really appreciate all his hard work!

‐ Kevin Devore , Charlotte NC

Eric was excellent in providing me with the type of service I was looking for - someone attentive to detail, is very clear cut with explanations, has experience in home building with contractor connections, and is timely with responses. Eric was respectful, patient with all of my new home owner inquiries, and assertive when it mattered. He brought all of his knowledge and... Read More

Eric is a fantastic realtor and great to work with. He's professional and trustworthy while looking out for your best interests. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Eric Layne is very professional and one of the most knowledgeable and helpful real state agent I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He assisted us during such a stressful time selling a house out of state and finding our dream home. I would strongly reccomend Eric to all my friends and family. His expertise, patience and negotiation skills are impressive not to... Read More

If you're looking for someone with tremendous knowledge about investment property in Charlotte, Eric Layne is the one!

‐ Charlotte Walker, Charlotte NC

Eric was extremely helpful as we worked through the process to purchase a new home and sell the old home. The process was as seamless as it could be, understanding things always come up that may be unexpected. We appreciate Eric's diligence and professionalism. I will certainly be referring him to others looking to buy a home.

‐ Justin & Aislin Graupensperger

Eric is the best realtor in North Carolina! Our family has bought and sold homes with him for many years now and we are so pleased with his professional service, his knowledge, his friendly manner and his negotiating skills.

‐ Jennifer Salluzzo

Marcel and I have been investing in real estate for the past 3 years, during which time we have been guided by Eric Layne. Prior to meeting Eric, we had worked with other agents who had been, frankly, disappointing. Eric worked hard to gain our trust and our business. As a fellow investor, he fully understands what we are looking for and strives to find us suitable... Read More

Eric is the best realtor I have ever met or worked with. His knowledge, expertise, and ability to get us the house we wanted were top notch and amazing. Without him, we would not have gotten the house we wanted. His help thru the process made it easy and gave us a lot of faith on getting the deal done. Everything he said and did was accurate, spot on, and right 100% of the... Read More

I don't believe there is a better real estate agent in Charlotte. Nancy and I have had Eric as our agent since we moved to the Charlotte area in 2010. We have purchase and sold 5 residences and 2 investment properties with Eric's help and expertise. Couldn't have done it without him.

‐ Richard Hickey

Eric did a great job! He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, & polite...a true expert and professional. Good communication skills. I will definitely work with him again in the future. He's one of the best Real Estate agent's I've ever worked with

Eric has assisted us with several home sales. His knowledge and expertise is second to none. He has advised us on six home and investment properties in the last five years. Even though we have moved out of state we will continue to take Erics' advice on investment properties in the Charlotte area. Helen Adams should be proud to have a person such as Eric Layne working with... Read More

Couldn't ask for better service than what we got from Eric. Will definitely use him again in the future!

Eric was amazing. I meet a lot of realtors and he is by far the most knowledgeable and professional realtor around.

As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
