In 3 Words: Grit, Results, Service. Life is good for Erik Berg because he makes it good. When you choose the place where you want to live and you choose the perfect profession for yourself, it’s simple. And when all the other pieces of your life make you happy then it doesn’t get any better. That’s what Erik Berg has made happen. When Erik wakes up he knows it is going to be a good day. He kisses his wife (who also happens to be his business partner), spends some time with their two young children, and walks to his office in the heart of Aspen.
Erik’s days are filled with setting short and long-term goals, planning with his team, conferring with clients, keeping up with the latest about the local market, enjoying a collaborative lunch with a fellow broker, perhaps holding an open house or accompanying a client to a closing. You might say he’s just having a typical business day but, for Erik, no day is typical and no two days are alike, just as no two client relationships are alike. That is what makes the business of real estate exciting for him. Whether Erik is creating a film of a new listing, staging a home for viewing, negotiating the best deal he can for his client, making new connections or researching market trends, he always pays attention to the details while simultaneously keeping his eye on the big picture. It does not matter if you are a seller, a buyer, a renter or an investor, Erik’s aim is to make you a client for life. He achieves that goal with candor, zeal, focus, creativity, insight, business knowledge and, most importantly, a strong work ethic. That is what made him excel as a tennis professional prior to his life as a real estate broker.
Just ask his clients who have witnessed Erik both working a deal and acing a serve on the court. Clients will tell you Erik is the most respected, responsive and accessible broker they know. He seamlessly can assemble a team of attorneys, financial advisors, accountants, appraisers, interior designers, inspectors, and title companies for his clients. And when it comes to Erik’s managing private transactions of unlisted and available properties in the local market, clients are assured that discretion and confidentiality are a given. It's no wonder Erik sold $48 million in 2017 and $50 million in 2018. Oftentimes Erik comes home in the evening and tells his family that he didn’t have a good day . . . he had a great day. It means that all his dedication and all his efforts have resulted in a positive outcome. This is what Erik likes best. This is what makes Erik tick.
