I am Eric Martin Johnson, Realtor at Sotheby’s International Realty in San Francisco. I love selling beautiful homes and am excited about the prospect of helping you live your dream. Having modeled my business on the fundamental principles of “Results, Service and Integrity”, I am humbled to know that nearly 70% of my clients come from referrals. I am a strong negotiator, an optimist, and a real estate coach to buyers and sellers alike.  I want to see you win.  With the highest dose of humility, I believe in my ability to go out and get you more of what you want, and we’ll definitely have fun in the process.

PASSION: My passion for Real Estate was fostered by my father who studied architecture before going to medical school. On “Open House Sundays,” we would tour architecturally significant homes in Malibu, Bel Air, and Hancock Park. He taught me about the key architectural elements that transform a house into a dream home. Since then, my interest in real estate has grown into a successful career at Sotheby’s International Realty.

HOME: Your home is more than just shelter from the cold. Home is a place where you can shut the door from the world, free from the judging eyes of others. It’s a safe place to recharge, dream, love, and maybe even procreate. For buyers, your home reflects your vision of who you are and how you want to live. For Sellers, home is an investment that will finance your future plans. Because home means so many different things to so many people, my job is to first understand what is most important to you. Then we will leverage your smarts and mine, along with the marketing power of Sotheby’s International Realty, so that we can get you what you want…and a little bit more.

SELLERS: Do you want to sell your home for the highest possible price? If your answer is “Yes,” you’ve come to the right Realtor. My proven strategies will maximize your home’s visual appeal. My marketing plan will give your home maximum exposure to ensure that every buyer in your price range knows about it. As a result, when you decide to accept an offer, you will feel confident that you did not leave any money on the table. Call me for a complimentary home assessment.

BUYERS: I am here to help you buy your dream home. Together, we will assess your needs and explore the market. Once you identify the property you want, I will negotiate the best terms and price for you and assist with property inspections. You will also have access to my network of preferred contractors, architects, and designers that will help you understand the cost and scope of any renovations you desire. Once you are satisfied with your due diligence and your purchase has closed, I will be standing by in front of your new dream home, ready to hand over the keys to you.

COMMUNITY: My parents instilled in me the importance of giving back and I feel blessed to be able to support the community that supports me. A portion of my earnings from your listing or purchase will go to supporting a nonprofit of your choice. or one of the several nonprofit organizations I work with including Headlands Center for The Arts, Larkin Street Youth Project, Glide Community Services Center, Enterprise for Students, Morrow House and more. Call me if you’re interested in any of these organizations.
