Eric Pfeifer, Broker-Owner, CRB, CRS, CIPS, GRI, 2016 Citizen of the Year, 2015 Sanibel-Captiva MLS President, 2015 Sanibel Captiva Realtor of the Year

Eric Pfeifer (pronounced “fifer”) grew up in Baltimore, Maryland where he attended the Gilman School for Boys and later graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in Civil Engineering. Eric worked as an Engineer and Project Manager on jobs in both Georgia and Florida building bridges and wharfs and beltways. Eric later joined his two older brothers in a family business where they grew their company rapidly earning recognition from Inc. 500 for two consecutive years as one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States.

As a business owner managing over 80 employees, and working crazy hours 6 and often 7 days a week, Eric cherished his family time. Family vacations to Sanibel were always too short and too far between. After the birth of his second child, Eric and his wife decided that Sanibel could no longer be just a dream put off for future retirement, but a home for their family year-round.

Because Sanibel did not (and still doesn’t) have a big demand for Professional Engineers, Eric launched a new career in Sanibel Real Estate. Pfeifer obtained both his Realtor license and his Contractor License at the same time. Always a quick study, Pfeifer was honored as Sanibel & Captiva’s “Rookie Realtor of the Year” by his fellow Realtors in 2002. Then in 2003 and 2004 Eric was recognized as one of Southwest Florida’s “Real Estate Top Gun Realtors”. The following year, Eric earned the top agent award for all of VIP in Southwest Florida. Eric’s Real Estate Website: has received top honors as one of Florida’s most informative real estate websites for several years in a row until the competition was retired.

In 2008 Eric opened his own brokerage Pfeifer Realty Group on Sanibel Island's main street, Periwinkle Way. He went on to win the Sanibel Community Service Award in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2018 & 2019. Eric was also voted Realtor of the Year in 2010, Realtor of the Year for 2015, President of the San-Cap Association of Realtors in 2015, 2015/16 President of the San-Cap Kiwanis Club and 2016's Citizen of the Year by the Sanibel Captiva Chamber of Commerce.
