if I can tell you just one thing, you really need a buyer’s broker! Any other real estate
agent has a fiduciary responsibility to the seller, regardless of how
they shake your hand, smile, how friendly they are… their purpose is to make the SELLER money, not to save YOU money; or making sure that you’re aware of any possible negatives of the property…well, just forget that. Get a buyer’s broker.
I highly recommend Eric Walz. No other choice made any sense for us. Eric fulfilled our needs admirably, and we are even friends with him to this day.
I was in California and my wife was here in Michigan, I felt right along with them in the search, every step of the way.
I had a lot of emails and phone calls from/to Eric, and this communication is essential to how I felt about the process.
Eric was very committed to finding the home which was right for us. His extensive experience in building and in remodeling meant that we could fully discuss design/structural issues, understanding the true condition of each house that we saw during our six-month search. I have to say that it was a tremendous relief to finally find “our house”. During the whole process, he never gave up and was always just a phone call or email away. Eric expertly guided us through negotiation, inspection and all the legalities, always addressing our interests.
We truly benefited from his dedication, which made our house-buying experience a welcome adventure!

When my husband and I started looking for our first house, we had very different ideas of what we wanted. He wanted to live in Ann Arbor and I wanted to live in a township. All we really agreed on was that we wanted a fireplace. So when we met Eric and Mona, we presented some challenges.
They were very patient as we visited a number of listings. As we looked, we got better ideas of what was really important to us, and so did Eric. Not once did we feel pressured to buy a house that didn’t seem right for us.
After our daughter was born, we stopped looking for almost a year. When we were ready again, Eric was ready to help and within a few weeks we found the perfect house. Eric helped us negotiate an awesome deal, and a year later, we are absolutely thrilled that this house is now our home. Of course, it does have a fireplace!
If we ever have to buy another house, we will not consider anyone else to help us find it.
Thanks Eric and Mona!
