Testimonials

“Erin Garcia helped my daughter and her husband buy their home and they raved about her, so my wife and I asked Erin to be our agent in finding and buying a home in the Charlottesville area. She is an absolute charmer, incredibly hard-working, available and responsive in a timely way, knowledgeable  of the market, straightforward and savvy in her advice and recommendations, willing to try suggestions and to “go for it” even when she can’t be certain of the outcome but considers the request reasonable, affable and on good terms with other agents and local professionals (contractors and skilled technicians in electrical, HVAC, plumbing, construction/handyman, etc.) whose services a new homeowner may need. In short, Erin is top-tier not only as a professional but also as a human being, and she really seems to enjoy her work! We are very happy with our new home and super-pleased with the way the whole process went under Erin’s skillful hand. We offer our highest recommendation for Erin Garcia.”

“Erin is an absolutely fantastic realtor and we are SO glad that we found her. We had toyed with the idea of for-sale-by-owner and are relieved that we opted to have an agent represent our sale instead. We interviewed three top realtors in the Charlottesville area before deciding who to list with  and Erin was the winner hands down. From the very first meeting she put us at ease as first-time sellers and that commitment to us never faltered even though we had a roller coaster of a sale process. All in all, we are so grateful for Erin and could not recommend her more highly.”

“Erin Garcia is the best realtor by far that I have ever encountered. From the beginning she was genuinely interested in finding just the right house for me. She worked with me for over a year. When I found just the right house she took care of a thousand details for me because I lived in  California. I had several inspections and she recommended very competent companies including hiring a structural engineer, home inspector, well water tests, and testing the septic system. The settlement went smoothly. Erin is a native of Charlottesville and knows the entire area. I would recommend Erin to anyone who wants communication and service way beyond your expectation.”

“You won’t find a better agent than Erin Garcia. She always goes the extra mile and does her best to mitigate some of the craziness in buying and selling a house (I have done both with her). What I particularly admire is Erin’s ability to lay out the pros and cons of every sale, to offer her  opinion, and then to stay out of the way to let the concerned parties deliberate. She strikes the best balance of personal involvement and respect for others’ financial decisions.”

“Erin has been my realtor of choice on 3 transactions thus far; two on the listing side and one as buyer’s agent. In the event of my demise/disability I have left special instructions for my home to be marketed by Erin Garcia. Need I say more? “

E Henderson


“We worked with Erin twice – once to buy our house in Charlottesville – and then again five years later to sell it. As an attorney, I have been particularly impressed with her advocacy skills. She has taught me a lot about what it means to truly serve a client. She also came through for us when  we had some last minute mishaps in moving out. She ushered us through the mayhem with a calm and steady hand. I can’t recommend Erin high enough.”

“Erin Garcia recently helped us with the sale of my mother’s house.  Throughout the process, she was a pleasure to deal with, she was always available and prompt with her answers to our questions and concerns. She was knowledgeable about the market and gave what I thought to be excellent advice on  repairs, pricing, offers and counteroffers.  She demonstrated the highest level of personal responsibility and professional integrity. She is, in short, a skilled professional. Whenever the subject of real estate agents comes up in conversation, you can be sure that I will give my highest recommendation and endorsement to Erin Garcia.”
