Erik was wonderful to work with because he saw the entire transaction through to the end. He was very accessible and responded quickly to questions and was always happy to answer questions. Erik made you feel important no matter what price range you are shopping in.

Erik helped my husband and I purchase our first home and was a lot of help through the process. He was patient helping us find places to look at and worked through our frustration when it seemed we wouldn't find a place that met all our requirements. He was with us for all appointments and helped answer any questions we had.

I would give Erik 10 stars if that was available.. He was very professional, very calm, patient, and very helpful explaining the whole process to new buyers like us. We had lot of houses which we wanted to bid for, and some other agents would never say NO if you want to bid on something since they can close the deal ASAP. But Erik was different. He used to tell us to be patient, and not to hurry and not take something which is not worth the money. He would tell us pros, and cons of buying a particular house, which really helped us. He would advise you as a family member, and not a realtor, which his real asset. At the end of the day, we got a good house, and a good deal. After the deal is finished, he is even ready to help us to find contractors, or talking to contractors for re-modelling and also keeping an eye on them periodically if needed. I would highly recommend him to all buyers, especially new buyers which dont have much idea of what it takes to buy a house. He will be very helpful explaining everything and holding your hands all the way along. Thank you Erik. If I decide to buy or sell a property, it has to be you -:)

Erik is so adorable to workwith . He is instrumental in finding right house for me in short time. He is very knowledgeable in real estate in and around Bay area , California. Am a first time home buyer, with a low budget and lower downpayment ability. Many real estate agents I spoke with have tried to avoid me due to my situation. It was Erik who took time to understand my requirements and make me understand real situation that has helped me in adjusting my requirements and still stay within my budget limits. The instances he shares from his vast experiences were very helpfull to me. I can say that am very fortunate to have met Erik at right time. You should meet him atleast once to understand what am referring to. He is one of those precious persons.

Erik has been the perfect real estate agent for a first time home buyer like me !! After a couple of meetings with us, I think he was able to figure out the kind of home we were looking for and helped us finding this place. He has been a trust worthy partner to us in this whole home buying process. His help is very much appreciated by me and my wife ! Erik is a best !! :)

Zipreality, how to give more than 5 stars? Erik deserves more than 5 stars. We recently purchased our first home and Erik helped us through out the process. Erik is knowledgeable and very patient. He provided valuable inputs. He has a lot of experience in real estate. Very easily approachable. Never pushed us into anything. If any one is looking for a new home, I would strongly recommend Erik.

Worked with Erik for about 3 months until closing in March '13. Throughout, Erik was not pushy and allowed me to make my own decision as to when was the right time to buy. Behind the scene, Erik worked tirelessly with the lender and title company to ease the stress and frustration. Erik is highly recommended and will assist in any way possible to smooth out the process. Thank you, Erik!

We recently purchased our first home and Erik helped us make the entire buying process a comfortable one. We worked with Erik for just a month and bought the house that we really liked. Best thing we liked is the knowledge and patience that Erik brought throughout this process. He provided us very valuable information on the different stages of the home buying process and never pushed us. He has a lot of experience in real estate and it clearly shows in how he managed various folks (Seller, Mortgage professionals, Title company etc.,). He followed up with respective parties involved and showed up for all the important steps (inspection, title, seller negotiation etc.,). If you are looking for a home in Bay Area and looking for an agent who is experienced, patient and make you comfortable - we highly recommend Erik

My husband and I are familiar with Mr. Erik Bakker through Zip Realty. As first time home buyers, we were not sure how to find a realtor, what to expect, much less, how to even start the home buying process. We were, and still are, very lucky to have stumbled upon Mr. Bakker through some brief research of prospective homes that my husband and I were interested in. Mr. Bakker was able to not only help us with getting into these listings, but also narrow our potential city location down to one so that we could focus on a home within that city. He also made us aware of the differences between a short sale, foreclosure, new construction, and a typical used home and their varying degree of wait times for closing. Mr. Erik Bakker exemplified his expertise by recognizing exactly what it we really wanted, how much, and where. He is a true professional and not only can he fulfill the roles set forth as a professional realtor, he will be with you during the entire home buying process. In our experience, my husband and I went for a new model home on land that is currently being developed. Unfortunately, we had a terrible experience with the developer because [they] have a preferred sales team and preferred lender, which I cannot say anything positive about neither of the two. It was an extremely painful process that Mr. Bakker made so much easier. He even went to measure the windows for custom window treatments, which the sales team for the developer refused to do. In their comment, “…we always recommend that buyers come measure their own windows and not rely on blueprints…” which Mr. Bakker not only was able to accommodate this request, but he was also able to provide a template of the home we purchased (which made it easier for us to plan things accordingly with an image). He did not have to do this. He went out of his way to make us happy. My husband and I were appalled at the treatment from the sales team representing this developer. The face of an organization is crucial for repeat business and referrals, especially in a drab economy. If it were not for Mr. Bakker, I am not sure where we would stand with the purchase of this new home? If it were not for him, we may have pulled out. We are happy to have had Mr. Bakker because we got our dream home. My husband and I have already recommended friends and family to use Mr. Bakker with Zip Realty because he far exceeds what professionalism is, and does what he says, if not more! He really is a rare realtor and professionals like him are hard to find. We will use Mr. Bakker when we decide to sell other property in the near future, possibly even the new home we just purchased 10 years down the road. If there are ever any questions, we would be more than happy to answer any and all questions pertaining to Mr. Erik Bakker with Zip Realty. Thank you for your time! Hugo and Lesley Chacon

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Erik. I trusted his judgment and really relied on his opinion of some of the houses we looked at to make my final decision. I really appreciated the fact that Erik had such a strong understanding of the real estate market. It was truly a pleasure to work with Erik. Erik is very honest and very trustworthy. I would highly recommend Erik to anyone who is in the market to buy a home.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Erik to find my new home. It was like shopping for my new home with my dad. Erik had a wealth of knowledge in the area and helped me to weigh my pros and cons with each property we saw. I appreciated the fact that Erik did not rush or pressure me into purchasing anything in which I was not completely satisfied. He remembered my initial interview criteria and reminded me to keep within those boundaries and not get too carried away. It was truly a pleasure to work with Erik. I would highly recommend Erik to anyone who is looking for their dream home.
