MEET Erica


Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Erica has always had a love for property investment and design. While working towards her degree in Real Estate, Development and Construction at Virginia Tech, she spent her summers working for a prominent Miami architect. After graduating with honors, Erica spent 10 years in commercial construction. She began as an intern and within five years was managing as much as $60M new construction projects, as well as helping start up a restoration division in Virginia, Washington D.C and the Carolinas. Yearning for something more, Erica started her own construction sales, marketing and real estate investment company.

One weekend, Erica came to Charleston to visit her cousins living on Johns Island. Immediately she fell in love with the Lowcountry. Beautiful beaches, mild winters, enriched with culture and history- Charleston has it all! Within five years, she relocated with her husband to raise their son in this coastal paradise. Devoted wife and mother, when Erica is not working she enjoys life outdoors in the water, on the tennis courts or volunteering at her son’s school.

Honesty, integrity and strong work ethic have been ingrained into Erica’s core. After her years of successful personal real estate dealings, she is passionate about applying her knowledge and expertise to helping her clients achieve their own real estate dreams. Buying a home is the biggest financial and emotionally charged decision most people make. Erica treats every client’s needs with as much care and diligence as if it were her own. She keeps her finger on the pulse of market changes, providing her clients with the very best advice when they make the decision to buy or sell a home.
