    Erik was very patient with the process. Both the seller and ourselves were hesitant going into the deal. Even in this crazy market he did not push either party and I think this was critical. When it looked like it was going to fall through, we worked on some other options. we felt he did a great job. Listening was key! did a super job even during the pandemic they offered a means to communicate with the office safely overall very pleased and impressed with Erik and the office

    We had never sold before, and when the offers came and we excepted one. Erik Jura went above and beyond to help us work through the details. Example items that came up on the home inspection. He helped us with contractors or ideas to get those few things fixed. All and all we are very happy with the way everything went. Thank you

    Erik did a great job, he showed us houses that we wanted to see in a timely manner. He knows the local area and knew what we were looking for. He handled the contracts fast and effectively, met us where it was convenient for us to take care of some of the money issues. He worked very hard for us and resolved some issues that we were facing and made it easy for us to make the decisions that we made. I would highly recommend him to anyone, great job! For a first time buyer, Erik was very helpful anytime we had a question or concern he looked right into it and got back to us very quickly. He was very approachable and helped in every way that he could. Our experience was good, exciting and in the end very pleasing. We are happy with the home and very happy with Erik's performance. Thank you to everyone. I would recommend Erik Jura to anyone looking for a home, he is friendly, pleasant and very helpful. We had some rare questions and he researched and reached out to other professionals to find out the answers and informed us how to handle it. It was a tree safe issue, and he helped out tremendously. Thank you Erik, you did a great job for us and we really appreciate you.

    Best Realtor by far in the area. Have used Erik Several times for both purchasing and selling homes. Will use him again every single time I need a realtor. Works harder than any other realtor. I’ve bought and sold houses in other states, and Erik is phenomenal.

    We have bought and sold everything with Erik, he gets it done. We recently moved my mother in with us and were afraid she may not be able to get her a house because it’s such a competitive market. Erik found her a perfect house walking distance from ours so she can see her grandchild whenever she wants. The man has the patience of a saint, and worked a miracle for us. Thank you sir.

    Erik supported me in the purchase from the start. We had some hurdles at the start, but we worked them out quite well. He covered a lot of ground, grooming the lists to provide a full list properties until we hit on the property I bought. He was steady, and helpful through to the final signing.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better agent than Erik! His knowledge and expertise were vital in helping us find a home in Maine while we were living in Texas. Erik goes above and beyond, it’s not just a job to him, you can tell he loves what he does. We were worried about being able to find a realtor that would be straightforward and honest especially since we couldn’t actually be here for 98% of the time. Erik made the process easy, kept in constant communication, and answered all 1,837,529 questions I had.

    My house was ordered by the court to be sold and so I needed a broker that was willing to deal with the selling of my house. My lawyer highly recommended Erik Jura for the job. Erik was very professional and friendly. I hired him because he knew exactly what to do and how to go about selling the house for my situation. Erik had a buyer for the house approximately 7-8 weeks after it went on the market. The closing was scheduled for one month later, but it needed to be extended due to my having to go back to court. The buyer had no problem with that and the closing date was rescheduled. Erik did a great job keeping everyone informed of the progress and also with the selling of the house. I could not have asked for a better broker to sell my house!!! I am more than pleased with Catre Real Estate!

    When I began our house hunt, I was quite dismayed by my realtor choice. She said things like: "this house'll be gone in a week!" To push my decision... Otherwise she seemed not really interested. A new friend of mine suggested Erik; apparently they're neighbors. When we met I realized he was fathoms of depth more Professional than my other realtor. He had us sign things right away, he really was interested in the details of our situation, and he held our hand! I no longer felt we were 'on-our-own' in the real estate game. And he did No posturing or pushing. Actually urging prudence and welcoming the inspectors in ... wanting us to be happy with our purchase ...

    Erik Jura is a rare gem in the real estate business, he is the guy you want to have with you when your house shopping and working your way through the tremendous mounds of paperwork There wasn't a hiccup that we hit that Erik wasn't able to find a speedy solution to, he works with years of experience and it shows in his work. I'd highly recommend giving Erik a call if you're buying, selling or just have some questions, he's a friendly character that can help you along your journey.

We sold a previous home in February of this year and did not have a good experience with the realtor so we were so glad that Erik came highly recommended from family and more than exceeded our hopes. Thanks for making the process of buying land easy Erik. We will definitely recommend Erik to anyone looking for an excellent realtor. Thank you!!

    We had a Goal! Our dream was to sell our place here and be able to fund a snowbird get away. we needed to meet two requirements, Sell this property for near its full potential, and do so in a short timeline. We knew this created opposing obstacles for a agent. The selection of a Broker/Agent was going to be critical. being tied into a exclusive agreement with the wrong agent would crush our dream. Knowing this was a "Do or Die" I undertook a selection process perhaps more in depth than most would, We had the opportunity to do so while we finished preparing the property for the Market. Other Brokers seemed to be out of touch with the owners of property listed with them. I interviewed property owners attempting to sell from three brokers from a list that I had narrowed down from a larger group, I wanted to see how positive they felt about the choice they had made. I asked if they were comfortable signing a exclusive agreement, inquired about how they felt about effort and commitment to selling their home. It quickly identified who was seen as satisfying the needs of the seller. I spoke with three agents. Other individuals whom were interviewed did not seem to able to come up with a marketing plan that I felt would achieve the results I wanted in the timeline given. It just felt like the same sales pitch again and again, lets list it and see what happens, the market is a variable, the location could work for or against us... blah, blah, blah. Erik listened, questioned, and presented what he though would help. He was not willing to over-commit but displayed dedication. When the time came to sign the agreement i was comfortable with my choice. That was the easy part, now the work began. With his sense of humor tempering my anxiety regarding the goals I had presented, we pressed forward. The house was listed and It was in his hands. Erik understood my goals for the property and the approach I wanted to take to sell it. He effectively used his knowledge of the local market, and targeted buyers for that property. He provided suggestion and good counsel Erik gave credible advice, was flexible on the presentation strategy, and the end result was a closing in less time than expected, and for the targeted amount. In the end and during the closing it was clear that he not only wanted a sale for myself but wanted the buyer to be satisfied with the results. This resulted in a stress free transaction between the Buyer and myself. I would without hesitation use Erik again. Feel Free to contact me with questions.
