J. Kent Erickson

Agent, Owner, Broker Associate

Listening makes all the difference.  Thirty years as a business owner have sharpened his negotiation and organizational skills.  Kent sees a number of similarities between real estate and his experience in custom clothing. Finding the perfect property for each individual client is always his focus. He says, “There is no difference in customer service between a three-button suit and a three-bedroom house.”  Kent’s real estate clients are well served by his careful attention to detail and deep understanding of what true customer service means. He believes that “listening to my clients makes all the difference. You have to get to the heart of what’s important to people."
