"Eric did a great job. He knows Sanibel, is responsive, prepared and proactive."

  • The Messerschmidt Family Glen Ellyn, Illinois

"Eric was recommended to us by another Sanibel resident who knew him. We had heard him speak at our Shell Harbor Home Owners Association Meeting. Eric is a really hard worker and I even got use to his red headed temperment, and fun sense of humor!!. The entire staff at Pfeifer Realty Group was wonderful and the process of selling our home was a very good experience because of all of them."

  • The Roccia Family St. Louis, MO

"Everyone at Pfeifer Realty Group was very helpful, pleasant and went out of their way to help when needed before and after our purchase. After looking at listings online, iut appeared that Eric had some of the best listings in Sanibel. Eric Pfeifer is prompt, patient, helpful, knowledgable and easy to be around. We had a great experience, bought a house and are looking forward to our future on Sanibel Island."

  • The Allen Family, Lansdale, PA

"Eric's strengths include honesty, organization, follow thru, and knowledge. Eric made a complicated deal happen, that satisfied both parties."

  • Sandra Greco & Dan Drucker Sanibel, FL

"Eric is honest, trustworthy and frank. He provides great service and goes out of his way to help."

  • The Hansen Family Omaha, NE

"We found Eric from a listing we were interested in buying. His has strong knowledge about the Sanibel market and the area. Eric is professional, accessible, friendly, and we always felt that Eric had our best interests at heart. Buying a "vacation" home was a big scary step for us, I don't think we would have succeeded without his patience and guidance."

  • The Martin Family, Parkesburg, PA

"We met Eric at an open house and were impressed by his honesty, professionalism and straight forwardness. He provided good information, was business like and easy to work with."

  • The Edmonston Family ,East Sandwich, MA

  • H. Schoepke Barrington, IL

"Eric is dependable, knowledgable, courteous, and professional. Eric went above and beyond to make sure we could buy the house we "fell in love with".

  • The Triantafyllou Family, York, PA

"The fact of the matter is that in a less than stellar market, Eric Pfeifer and his associates managed to sell my property within six months of listing!

This was accomplished by his intelligent, analytical approach to determining what I consider the most important factors for a sale; listing price, marketing plans, staging and the consistent amount of communication with me, the homeowner! Eric shines in all these areas, and goes above and beyond the call of duty to get the sale accomplished.

After several years of listing with other "top" agents, I realize that it is not about how many houses and dollars of business agents have sold, but more about how the agent treats you and communicates with you throughout the process. Eric is the best and I wish I has gone to the best first!"

  • Nancy Gallimore, Barnegot Light, NJ

After trying for several years to sell our condo in a very bad real estate market, finding Eric and having him work hard on our behalf it was wonderful to have him find a buyer even though it wasn't easy in today's market. Eric worked hard and had good suggestions for us for selling our property. He made every effort to find the buyer and then worked hard keeping us up to date on the progress of the purchase. We also were comfortable using Pfeifer Realty Group because it is highly regarded by others on Sanibel."

  • The Burden Family: Sanibel, FL & Fort Myers, FL

"Eric Pfeifer is an outstanding Realtor. He is professional, extremely helpful and goes above and beyond a Realtor's job description. I am thrilled he sold my property in such a short period of time especially considering today's market. His marketing is exceptional. The reason I sold my home was because my husband passed away. Eric went out of his way to make a difficult situation as pain free as possible. He responded to any requests for help or information in order to help me. I am grateful to him that he basically took charge and prepped my house, did whatever was necessary to make the sale happen. It was one less thing I had to deal with. Eric is an exceptional Sanibel island Realtor and human being. Thank you, Eric."

  • The Basen Family , Orlando, Florida

"We first met Eric when we purchased our home in Sanibel. It was a very good experience and we then looked to Eric to assist us with a purchase in Fort Myers and the sale of our Sanibel property.

On the purchase side, Eric helped us narrow down the choices, created a negotiating strategy and helped us buy a great house at a fantastic price. To top it off, he had a moving van and was ready to help move us into our new home minutes after the closing! Eric helped do all the heavy lifting from beginning to end. He is always professional, informed and available.

On the sell side... he helped find a buyer who offered a fair price and brought the sale to closure in a very short period of time. In this tough market (Summer 2009), what else can you say? Thank you, thank you, thank you Eric. Warmest Regards"

  • Paul and Christy Schwartzott - Mooresville, NC & Fort Myers, FL

"We met Eric several years ago and he listened well to our preferences and desires."

  • The Davis Family, Advance, NC

  • Pat Macchia, Sanibel, FL

  • J. Stegmeier, Grand Rapids, MI

"Dear Eric: I did not want our business dealings to conclude without thanking you, on behalf of Stephanie and her three sisters, for your excellent assistance in selling the Sanibel condo. You were a real professional and provided great service. I was given the job at holiday time of selecting a Realtor to sell the condominium, starting with three recommendations provided by a Sanibel native who is a close friend of the O'Malleys. Each of the recommended professionals was extremely impressive, and I felt no need to go beyond the three recommendations. I selected you because of your energy and responsiveness. You suggested the highest listing price of the three Realtors, and you had good reasons to back up your position. The unit sold for some $30,000 over the highest listing price suggested by the other Realtors. You kept us fully advised of the status of the sales effort and took care of many details that could have proven difficult for us to deal with. I think all of the O'Malley girls looked on you as a friend rather than simply a hired professional. You went out of your way to communicate with each of them, and your post-closing gift was icing on the cake. Good luck with the rest of your career. We hope to see you when we return to Sanibel as renters."

  • Thomas N. Biddison, Jr., Baltimore, Maryland

"Eric is Professional, Knowledgeable, Above & Beyond! Sarah, Eric's assistant gets and A+ too."

  • The Schwartzott Family, Mooresville, North Carolina

"Eric was the listing agent for my parent's house. In spite of very difficult personal circumstances, and Hurricane Charley, Eric's professional approach, yet attention to our personal situation, made a positive experience out of difficult times. I would never have considered contacting any other agent when it was time to buy on Sanibel. Eric's experience and attention to detail make him a 'winner'."

  • Jim and Amy Clapp, Maryland

"Eric is very organized, providing all the information we needed for future reference in an informative binder. He is professional, friendly, easy to relate to and very attentive. We always felt important."

  • Tony LaCorte, Fort Myers Beach, Florida

"Eric was our initial agent (and only agent). He has exceeded our expectations in all areas. He is extremely flexible and patient. He has provided objective information at all times. During the recent Hurricane, he went far beyond the norm in assisting us. He is a true asset to his organization. "Eric is extraordinary, above and beyond in all aspects. He really takes a personal interest in our satisfaction."

  • The Dash Family, Glenside, PA

"Eric is a fantastic agent and a conscientious caring citizen of Sanibel. Eric Pfeifer has been a great agent selling my lot and then sticking by me thru Hurricane Charley. His email updates helped me tell if I could get to Sanibel. His cell phone number for calling about the storm was wonderful."

  • Mary Snyder, Mitchellville, MD

"Eric always goes beyond what is expected. He did an excellent job and we consider Eric a friend"

  • The Bourassa Family, Hebron, CT

"We were so pleased with Eric Pfeifer's meticulous attention to detail on our sale of Loggerhead, we asked him to help us find another property to buy. I can't begin to express all of our thoughts about Eric. We wanted to be on the top floor of Golfview. Eric just kept searching and searching and put a sale together practically out of thin air. Eric truly listens to what people want and shows appropriate properties. We would use VIP Realty Group again, only if Eric is there."

  • Thomas Lamphere & Cathy Hill - Naperville, IL

"Coming from Colorado, we did not know of any real estate agents in Southwest Florida. Eric was recommended to us by a relative living in Ft. Myers. What a privilege it was to work with Eric. He went above and beyond what is asked of an agent, and he continues to do so. As a former athlete, I have lived in virtually every part of the United States and dealt with numerous real estate agents. Eric's professionalism, integrity, knowledge and courtesy are un-paralleled in this business. I highly recommend Eric Pfeifer."

  • Walt & Terri Weiss - Castle Rock, Colorado

  • Colleen Elias & Al Miller, Punta Gorda, Florida

"Purchasing a home can be a very stressful experience, purchasing a building lot can be more so, as most folks don't have the requisite knowledge to cover all the bases. Eric covered all the bases for us. It was like having a research team working just for us. All of our questions were answered all of our concerns were addressed, and the process turned out to be a wonderful experience thanks to Eric's knowledgeable approach. We can't wait to build our dream home on Sanibel. If we have any questions, we know we can always call Eric."

  • Nick Magli , Indian Shores, Florida

"We are happy to recommend Eric to you if you have interest in the sale of or purchase of a Sanibel or Captiva property!

  • John and Susan Gaffney, St. James City, Florida

  • The Murphy Family, Timonium, Maryland

"We had pretty well chosen our realtor years before we decided to sell. We were on Eric's email list and his reports of island conditions following the hurricanes of the early 2000's were accurate, timely and very much appreciated. He expressed a willingness to check on our property when there was nothing in it for him. Furthermore, through his PPBO website, he offered a free outlet for us to advertise our property for sale or rent, and with that he won our confidence. As a realtor we found Eric extremely dedicated, loyal, honest and optimistic within reason. He communicated regularly and went beyond the call of duty to wrap up details necessary for closing. It's possible there are Sanibel realtors as good, but none better!"

  • Joe & Lee Scheidler, Logansport, IN

Eric was always at our beck and call. He has good follow-thru and was always there to help us as we bought our Sanibel home.
