When we decided to sell our beloved Colonial Village house, we turned to the realtor who sold it to us to begin with. Erich Cabe held us sell our house in less than three days, for 99% of our asking price with a minimum of stress Throughout the entire process, Erich was professional, capable, helpful, accessible, and results oriented. He had a professional stager evaluate our house and give us recommendations, free of charge, and sent in a professional photographer to take photos of our house. What a difference both made! The stager helped us arrange our house to play up its strengths (which is hard to do when you love your house and can?t imagine how someone else wouldn?t love it immediately). The photographer painstakingly took gorgeously-lit photographs which were worlds above iPhone photographs or the ones I can take with my camera. The staging and the photographs came together in a lovely full-color, professional photographic brochure Erich produced (again, free of charge) which we believe helped sell the house. From pricing the house, to timing of the listing, to negotiating the final contract, inspections, and closing, Erich was consistently a pleasure to work with. He is reliable, easy to reach by phone, knowledgeable, and very helpful. He made what could have been an overwhelmingly stressful process smooth and easy. We would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house in DC. Less ... More

We first worked with Erich a few years ago when we bought our home in Bethesda. When it came time to sell it recently, we knew we wanted to work with Erich again and called him immediately. He quickly helped us develop the right listing strategy and referred us to a great stager to get the house looking its best. He held multiple open houses in the first few weeks to ensure we had maximum foot traffic. Erich was also really good about keeping us in the loop on whatever developments there were and has been the most responsive agent we've ever worked with. He is knowledgeable, experienced, trustworthy, and committed to helping his clients. We truly appreciated Erich's guidance and support and, having moved out of the DC area, will miss having someone like him to help us buy/sell future homes. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We met Erich by chance while we were in the process of interviewing other realtors to both sell our home in northwest DC and buy a home just outside of the District, and what luck that was. The place that we were selling had very few comps and was thus difficult to price, but in retrospect Erich chose the right strategy in terms of pricing, timing, and marketing that allowed us to sell our home above asking with multiple offers. He served just as critical a role in buying our new home, even going as far as helping us negotiate with lenders to get the best possible rate on our loan. Erich worked many late nights on our behalf and was always responded immediately to our emails or calls, regardless of the question. He knows the market in DC, NoVA, and the Maryland suburbs very well and treated us as if we were his only client. We could not be happier with the way the process turned out and highly recommend Erich Cabe as realtor. Less ... More

We were so grateful to work with Erich. He helped us find the right home for us and was super knowledgeable about every aspect of our purchase. I have already recommended Erich to my family and would readily recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell a home in the DC area. He was really really wonderful to work with! Very many thanks Erich!

Selling your home and relocating out of state can be a very stressful event. That is why hiring the right realtor is extremely important. Erich Cabe is that realtor. He is talented, knowledgeable and extremely customer service focused. Erich was there every step of the way to make the process as stress free as possible. From his invaluable advise on preparing the condo for listing to his amazing negotiating skills. Erich listed and marketed my condo and within 6 days I sold my condo at 4% over list price! If you are looking to buy or sell a home I would highly recommend Erich. Less ... More

Erich is an exceptionally capable real estate agent. I am the executor of my father's estate and had to sell his home on short notice. Erich is a consummate professional, he understood the market better than any of the other highly-recommended agents I interviewed, proposed a sales strategy and marketing approach that was clearly superior to the other proposals I reviewed, and handled all the details of the sale. The house sold its first week on the market, at a price higher than I expected. Erich also is a delight to work with and was compassionate and understanding with me and my family as we went through the difficult process of coming to terms with my father's death and the sale of his home of more than 40 years. He was always on top of things and always available to respond to question and provide advice. I recommend Erich without reservation. Less ... More

I have lived in Forest Hills since 1959. My children were raised and went to school in the neighborhood. The friendships that we made here are still a part of our lives today. In 1978 we sold our home and moved to a smaller house several blocks away. That buying and selling experience was not a very good one, so when I decided to put the second house on the market in 2011, it was with great trepidation. I interviewed 3 Realtors who sell homes in my neighborhood. They all told me that my split-level is the wrong style house for Forest Hills and would not show well, sell quickly or command a very high price. They suggested that I put all my furniture in storage and let them stage the house. Needless to say, as an Interior Designer of 54 years standing in this community, I was terribly offended and discouraged. My son Robert Wilkoff, an architect in the DC area, suggested that I speak to Erich Cabe a Realtor he knew who, he assured me, had excellent credentials. I met Erich at my house and, after a brief discussion, I knew he was the person I could count on to guide me through the selling process?..and I wasn?t disappointed. Erich suggested that I start with a home inspection to identify the most important problems and repair them immediately. He recommended very competent contractors for certain areas when I didn?t have my own workers. Erich explained exactly what should be done to show the house to its best advantage as well as things that were unnecessary to do. His directions were uncomplicated and straight-forward. Once the work was underway, he came by or phoned almost daily to check on the project. When it was completed, he creatively used the description Mid-Century Modern which was more suitable to the Forest Hills community than a split level home. Erich worked with his photographer to take quality pictures that, within three days of showing on-line, caused a bidding war and the immediate sale of my house. Although selling a home can be, at times, joyful, difficult and challenging, Erich?s knowledge and guidance made the entire process worthwhile. Less ... More

Erich is a true professional. We have worked with a number of agents over the years, and Erich stands out among all of them because of his hard work, responsiveness to our specific requirements, and 24/7 availability. As an example, he participated in the home inspection in a serious manner, as if he was buying it for himself. Erich was able to secure the purchase of a great home for us in Chevy Chase DC in a highly competative seller's market.

We recently just purchased our first condo with Erich in downtown DC. He was very helpful and offered great insight throughout the daunting process, making it as painless as it can be. We would highly recommend Erich for your next purchase. SG

Erich was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was extremely knowledgeable and walked us through every step of the process. He was always available to discuss any questions we had or to take us on tours at the last minute. He was very professional and had tons of great advice for us during our search for the perfect home. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent. From start to finish he made buying our first house an amazingly smooth and fantastic experience!

Working with Erich Cable has been a pleasure. Having Erich as my agent on the selling and buying side worked out great. His communication was prompt and everything could not have gone better. He was so patient with me in trying to find just the right house I can call home for my family. Communication and details are extremely important to me, and Erich has exceeded these expectations. Erich was able to sell my previous home in a short time and helped me find a new one in a matter of weeks. I would defiantly recommend Erich. Less ... More

Erich was one of a few agents I spoke with before listing my home in DC. He was extreamly knowledgable of the market in both DC and the trends in my specific area. He was realistic with a timeline and pricing and gave me excellent advice on presentation. My home went under contract fairly quickly, even though he priced it higher than our local "neighborhood agent" who suggested I list it for much less. He was great with the closing process as well, and he went out of his way to make sure the sale went smoothly and happened on time. His communication skills with both his clients and the other agents were very empressvie and I will be using him again. Less ... More

Erich provides a good balance between real estate knowledge, detail and actions. He helped us "stay ahead of the game" in preparing us for the steps in home staging, selling and executing a contract. Erich is experienced in today's "buyer's market" and is skilled in the processes and communication skills needed to buy/sell a home. My wife and I were very pleased with Erich's support and direction thoughout the process of selling our home, and we would recommend him to anyone planning to buy/sell a property in the DC Metro area.

Mr. Cabe made himself available to us from the day we called him. He came to our home many times and made sure to make a note of everything that needed to be fixed, gave us suggestions and advice with affordable and highly reliable contractors who made miracles happen! When it came time for an inspection, Mr. Cabe wasable to do a run through before the home was listed and the inspector pointed one or two minor fixes to maximize the value of our home. Erich listed the home according to market value and we had a contract offering more than our asking price! Negotiations went well. Honestly without Mr. Cabe we may have not been able to sell our home as fast as we did, with the buyers he found, or the price we sold for. After a hands on negotiation with buyers in England, we sold the home for our asking price in cash. No hassles and very easy. I wish he was liscensed in Florida so he could take care of our land sale. Erich Cabe is the best. We highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling a home. Less ... More

Erich did a great job helping me on both the buy and the sell side. On the buy side he was able to provide the right marketing services and connections to all of the right contractors to sell my place fast (and over my target sale price). On the buy side, he provided great advice when trying to decide between 2 similar properties. Erich guided me in the right direction, and in time I think it will have turned out to be the wiser of the 2 investments. I would highly recommend Erich.

Erich helped me list and sell my house and is also helping me find another house to buy. He gave me valuable advice about renovating the house prior to selling it. His advice on pricing the house was spot on and he helped me all through the process from listing it, negotiating the price, to deal efficiently with things that needed to be done prior to settlement. He was always friendly, helpful, and professional. He always told me his opinion but made it clear that in the end, it was up to me to make the decisions. I would highly recommend him if you are planning on selling a house. Less ... More

Erich helped me through the process of a first time home purchase. Throughout the duration of the search, offer, and construction period, Erich was extremely patient, honest, and pleasant. It's funny, because he was extremely laid back as far as not applying pressure (as a homebuyer), but was very much a forceful advocate for my interests. Beyond that, his experience and knowledge of the area and what to look for, were beyond impressive and helpful. A great, great experience, and one that he made as stress-free and transparent as possible. Less ... More
