As a first time home buyer, I really had no idea what I was doing. Luckily, Ericka is extremely knowledgeable! She made the home buying process very easy, and I think I got a great deal on the place I bought. When I’m looking to sell my current place and move, I definitely plan to work with Ericka again.


Do not hesitate to contact Ericka Black for your DC Area home purchase needs. Her knowledge and experience of the home buying process combined with determination and patience in helping you find your home, makes her a great choice to fulfil your real estate needs. We've worked with her for years, and I can honestly say that she's one of the hardest working agents I've met over my 16 year career. Call her today!


Ericka was amazing to work with! She made the whole home buying process go smoothly. She’s very knowledgeable and provided great guidance in securing my first home.


Ericka was such a pleasure to work with! She is so patient, flexible, and committed to finding buyers a great home they love. I bought my first home with Ericka and she took great care in explaining the processes throughout. To add to that, Ericka was very nimble working with me as a buyer from out of state. I look forward to working with her in the future and would certainly recommend her to folks interested in buying in DC!


Ericka S. Black is a top tier realtor. Within 24 hours of a mutual friend connecting us, she already had tours lined up. I was like a fish out of water in the home buying process, but Ericka was super patient and understanding with me. She advocated on my behalf, and was a great voice of reason when I’d get discouraged. I highly recommend her services. You will not be disappointed.



The Home Buying Process


Before You Buy

Preparation is key when purchasing a property. From down payments and mortgage prequalification to understanding the type of home that will meet your needs and satisfy your wants, I can make sure your financial ducks are in a row and your expectations are grounded in reality when preparing to buy.


The Search

Selecting your perfect home will require research, expert guidance and knowledge of the local market, and you'll need to consider what it is you're looking for. I can help you find the place that fits your taste, your budget, and your lifestyle. I'm a home hunter's best friend.


Making the Purchase

So, you've found the perfect home that meets all your criteria, from a great location to just the right square footage. As your trusted agent, I will guide you through the logistical — and emotional — challenges of the purchase process, to ensure you are in a solid position before you sign on the dotted line.
