“It was an absolute pleasure to deal with the Erins team. Ray was incredibly knowledgeable, straight forward, easy to get along with, and well versed in all areas of our real estate sale. We closed quickly on our home, and can not thank him enough for his professionalism and expertise. Using his services will not disappoint, I highly recommend him and will gladly use him and the Erins team for any of my future dealings.”
“Ray was a delight to work with! My husband and I only had to tell him once what we’re looking for in a house, and voila, he found us the perfect home in a week! He made the whole buying experience so easy and seamless. He’s very easy to talk with, and always quick to respond to my text messages/emails. Highly recommended!”
“Ray helped us buy our first home so we knew that, since we wanted to move again we were going to use him. With his knowledge of the Sparta area, he was able (and very willing) to point us in the right direction. Our search for our new home was difficult, and selling our original home more so, but Ray was always there for assistance.”
“Working with Kristina was a great experience, She helped kept me sane through a very difficult sale and consistently found solutions to every issue that came up. In the end, the sale went through at a price that was more than I expected when we started the process. I feel very fortunate that I was able to work with her and would recommend Kristina and her team repeatedly!”
“KRISTINA’S LOCAL KNOWLEDGE , BEING RESPONSSIVE, NEGOTIOATION SKILLS AND HELPING ME STEP BY STEP IN THIS PROCESS AND GIVE ME SOLUTIONS FOR ALL THE PROBLEMS ON MY WAY TO GET APPROVED MAKE HER SUCH A SPECIAL REAL STATE PROFESSIONAL
DEFINATLEY RECOMMEND HER TO MY FRIENDS IN THE FUTURE.
SHE ALSO GAVE ME LOTS OF HINTS ABOUT INSPECTING THE PROPERTY.”
“The Erins team took me through beginning to end. Answered any questions I had. Very prompt I addressing any of my concerns. They were very knowledgeable and professional in guiding me through and explaining what was happening for each step in selling my home.”
“My family and I have used Ray multiple times to buy and sell houses, so having him represent our most recent house for sale was an easy choice to make. He is professional, efficient, and was always available to answer all of our (many) questions. He was able to work around our crazy work schedules and plan multiple showings within the first week which resulted in multiple offers! We will always use The Erins Team for all of our home buying and selling needs! They are always a pleasure to work with!”
“I was introduced to Ray and Kristina Erins through the Zillow Website. Kristina called me withn 5 minutes of submitting my request throught the Zillow Site. She took time to understand my needs, asking a lot of detailed questions but came across as very genuine. I immediately felt comfortable using her and Ray as our realtor team. . I could tell her primary goal was finding us a home that met our needs. We were introduced to Ray later on in the process and he treated us with the same care throughout the entire process. We never felt pressured to make a decision on purchasing a house. The Erins Team was extremely responsive and caring throughout our entire home buying process. They even introduced us to our lender (Youseff) who was also amazing to work with. Ray and Kristina found us our dream home and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home. It was a truly a pleasure working with The Erins Team!”
“Ray helped us navigate purchasing our first home, which included showing us many houses before we found “the one,” and then a fairly difficult/extended closing process. His responsiveness is very impressive and appreciated- he really will answer your questions almost anytime! Thanks Ray!”
“They made this process very very EASY before I knew it we had our closing on our home. They were very informative and kept me up to date on all aspects. The Lawyer and the Insurance agent that they gave us was wonderful. I like to thank them again. “
“Kristina and her team know the Sparta Area and market very well. They worked as if they were buying the home for themselves, always there and available when needed. I would not hesitate to recommend them or use again. True experienced professionals”
“Ray and Kristina truly went above and beyond through every step of our home buying process. They were patient, helpful, and accessible the entire time. Wouldn’t have wanted to go through this process with anyone else!”
“Ray and Kristina are AWESOME. As first time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions and they were always able to provide us with answers – and quickly. They are very text-friendly and always answered the phone when I called. As a result of their expertise and patience, they made the process of buying a home a pleasant one.”
Gus and Liwen He Pollastrone
“My husband and I can’t give enough thanks to Ray and Kristina! Like many first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and concerns, luckily Ray and Kristina are very experienced and super knowledgeable in the whole buying and selling process. Thanks for being extremely patient with us and finding the time to work around our busy schedule. It was nice to having Ray and Kristina available to help us. Ray and Kristina helped us find our dream home at the best value, we highly recommend them!”
“I cannot recommend the Erins team enough. They are everything you want in a realty team; highly professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. They made selling our home and incredibly easy process. They provided guidance and made themselves available at all times to answer all of our questions. If you’re looking to buy or sell a home I’d look no further than the Erins team.”
“I tried to sell my home last summer with another real estate agency but I was not successful, I took my house out of the market in the fall and I was thinking about short selling it this year. Kristina contacted me in December and convinced me to sale my home, even-though winter time seemed to me unrealistic for selling/buying we had lots of showings and I got an offer in 2 months. They also helped me find my new home in time record, and it’s for sure the house of my dreams. The whole process of selling and buying at the same time was not stressful at all. Kristina and Ray had an excellent team of professionals supporting me on everything I needed (attorneys, inspectors, loan office, etc etc) I could have hired different people to help me with this process but I’m glad I listened to their advice. I recommend Kristina and Ray to all my friends and family. I can guarantee them 100% they will not be disappointed.”
“You are a true professional and have become a good friend.”
“We could not have asked for a better real estate agent. You were always there for me and never pushy. Your continued guidance and direction have meant so much. Thank you!”
“Thank you for all your help while we were looking for a house. We appreciate all the time, patience and effort you gave us.”
“Kristina was as helpful as we could have hoped for as first time homebuyers. She was an expert in the process and was extremely responsive to all of our inquiries. She was able to offer guidance throughout the process and facilitated all aspects on her side of the fence. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor.”
Fran and Chris Houlday
“I recently had the pleasure of selling my house in Sparta, NJ, and moving to Millsboro, DE. What is usually everyone’s worst nightmare became a joy, all because of Kristina Erins. We couldn’t have been more impressed. She made suggestions on how the house would show better. Kristina showed our house on the caravan, and held three open houses. Through her efforts, she brought in a huge amount of people. Before long we had an offer in front of us, and after a little negotiation, we had a deal. Kristina was flawless and meticulous in her efforts. She paid close attention to all the details, both big and small. She returned every call I made in a quick fashion. She assured us through the whole process and addressed every concern.”
Jo & Gary Matsko
“Gary and I would like to again take the time to thank you for all of your help with the sale of our home. As you are aware, we had 2 other agents prior to you in 2 years with no success. The first one had our house listed for 18 months and it was shown 8 times. The second one we listed with was for 5 months and, although it was shown over 30 times, he never followed up with any of the potential buyers, never called us and was just a waste of time.
When we hired you, we selected you out of 5 potential new agents. We were very skeptical in selecting anyone due to our prior bad experiences; however, you struck us as someone who would at the very least return our telephone calls! Well as it goes without saying, you did more than that, in fact while you were at our home for your interview, your partner/son came with potential buyers right then and there. Amazing!!!
In the very short period of time we worked with you, you kept us informed of everything every step of the way. You did the first open house right away and although nothing happened then, you continued to push our home in this very tough market. When you did our second open house, you struck gold! You found our buyers and, even though the selling, negotiations and moving were quite stressful, we were so pleased that you helped us throughout the process. Gary and I would recommend you to anyone in New Jersey would is selling a home and/or buying as well. In our opinion, you worked a miracle as this market is still very tough. We cannot thank you enough and it was truly a pleasure working with you. We wish you much success in the future.”
“I can’t say thank you enough for this. The work and patience you have put into selling our house is above and beyond what I could have expected. I wish you the best and once again thank you!!!!”
“Ray and Kristina were attentive, providing gentle persistence when necessary in order to sell our home. In a challenging market where the buyer has a distinctive advantage, they performed in an exceptional manner.”
Kristina and Ray were true professionals with us through every step of the sale. They were very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend them to any individual interested in selling their home.
“I wish to take this opportunity to write and give you my impressions of Kristina Erins. I am responsible for getting my parent’s house sold in Newton. At first, I attempted to sell the house myself. That was my first inkling of the patience it requires being a realtor. I also discovered that, for me, that patience doesn’t exist. All the ridiculous questions and wasted time are but a few of the things that all of you deal with on a regular basis.
When I decided to list with an agency I interviewed a handful of realtors from different agencies. Kristina was one of those. She stood out as, by far, the most professional of them all. She knows the real estate business inside and out. I value her opinions and have implemented her suggestions on any number of occasions.
We began working together in September of 2009 and she truly has far exceeded my expectations. Whenever she showed the house I would receive a detailed e-mail from her about the outcome. She and I have discussed the house, pricing, etc. any number of times. It is because of her dedication, I am convinced, that she was able to get a contract on my house within a few months. This is contrary to the other houses for sale that are on the market for months if not years.
She and I continue to communicate as she is walking me through the inspection process leading up to a closing within the next couple of weeks. If I was required to describe my experience with Kristina in a word it would be trust. I approached signing a contract with an agency with much trepidation. Hoping that I wasn’t making a mistake and would ultimately be sorry for my decision. From the very beginning I knew that she was the perfect partner for me. For that I am so very grateful. “
John and Jennifer Obermiller
As first time home buyers, we did not know what to expect. Ray and Kristina made the process so easy! They were always quick to respond to phone calls and extremely patient. We never had to wonder where we were in the process, as they would keep us updated at every step. Although we saw many houses, they were determined to find us our home. And they did! We would absolutely recommend Ray and Kristina!
Gladys & Ray Toro
Kristina and Ray Erins from weichert real estate did a fantastic job in selling our home. Ray’s pictures of our home were if a professional photographer had taken them. Kristina handled everything from the moment the contract was signed to the closing. She made sure everything ran smoothly and went out of her way advising us what to do, to making phone calls on her own to make sure all went well. Many thanks again to them for a fantastic listing.
Both Kristina and Ray were very professional and persistent in selling my property. Their extensive network of contacts, systematic approach, and attention to detail helped sell a property that was on the market for 3 years with another broker. Very good negotiation skills helped close the deal and make me a dedicated client.
Colleen and Barry Howell
Kristina and Ray Erins were very professional in helping us sell our home, find and purchase our new home. They are very quick to respond to phone calls, e-mails and even text messages. It was a pleasure working with them and would recommend them to everyone.
We had such a pleasant experience with Ray and Kristina. They were very knowledgable about the current market. They were ALWAYS available when we needed them. My husband and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a home!
If you are looking for a Realtor that you can trust, you need not look further. Ray Erins will go above and beyond to meet all your needs and make what is usually a stressful process, a fun and exciting opportunity. Not only did he make himself available to show us our lengthy list of homes,. he did extensive research on his own of other properties that also met our needs. He has a wealth of information about different types of mortgages. And most importantly, Ray was brutally honest about properties, giving us information that most Realtors would probably not point out for fear of losing a sale – but it was this honesty that proved he deserved the up-most trust. His partner, Kristina also made herself available to show us properties or answer any questions we may have had during a brief period when Ray was out of town. Both Ray & Kristina are known for donating to Charities as well. I really can not stress how pleased you will be if you choose Ray Erins as your Realtor.
I was usure I could get a house but with ray and Kristina’s help I found my perfect house. If it were not for their knowledge I would have no Been able to find this house. I would recommend them to anyone. I could not thank them enough!!! I am so happy in my home and I got a great rate on a mortage thanks to them!
I’ve been burned before by real estate agents. Not doing what they say they will do, not calling me back, unresponsive to emails, etc. Kristina and Ray did exactly what they promised. Prompt listing on several websites, great pictures, frequent open houses of every kind, etc. In an industry that seems to be infested w/ unprofessional part-time agents, it was so refreshing to deal w/ people who were knowledgeable, professional, and didn’t treat it like a part-time job. Thank you Kristina and Ray.
Kris and Ray are a great team. Looking for a home can be an anxious time and they were always at the ready to send information to us and set up appointments to look at homes. Professional and personable.
Kristina and Ray were incredible! From the very beginning, they provided us with the most current information and prepared a sales strategy that met our expectations. Throughout the process, they were always available, attentive and proactive to ensure a smooth transaction.
Very professional, dependable and reliable to get things done. Willingness to help guide one through the processes of sale. Would not hesitate to use them again.
I met Ray and Kristina while beginning the hunt for my first home and was not sure exactly what I was looking for. My first time meeting Ray he made sure to sit down and search through listing after listing to narrow down the homes before we started going out. Whenever Ray was not available Kristina was also willing to take me to see houses and both were always available by phone. After just three months of house hunting Ray emailed me a listing and when I walking in I knew it was the one; yes, lots of work, but I could make it my own. I made an offer immediately after Ray showing the house and from there he and Kristina continued to be consistently available for me. I hear many horror stories from first time home buyers, but this is definitely not the case when working with Ray and Kristina. I could not have asked for a more pleasant experience or more knowledgeable and patient realtors.
Kristina was a godsend she made our experience of buying first home wonderful. She is caring and professional and helped get our dream home. I would recommend Kristina to anyone she is knowledgable of all home buying information and was there anytime night or day made us feel very comfortable …
-Amy and Richard Quinn
Kristina and Ray were extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire selling process. They were able to spark interest in the property despite it not selling for six months prior to their involvement. Communication was open and frequent, adding a great amount of comfortability to what could be a very stressful time. I highly recommend this team and would use again!
We had a wonderful experience with Kristina and Ray. They were friendly, helpful, professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of marketing our house. They were readily available whenever we had any questions and promptly returned our phone messages and texts. We highly recommend them to anyone who is serious about getting their house sold.
-Rod and Christine Crawford
Ray and Kristina are a pleasure to work with. They definitely know how to take care of their clients and make home buying a great experience. They are very knowledgable and were willing to help us anytime. We will definitely use them again in the future.
-Andrew Havrilla and Caitlin Howell
If you are ready to sell your house at a fair market price in northwest NJ, I highly recommend Kristina and Ray Erins. They were pros every step of the way. Ray’s photos were excellent. Kristina’s responsiveness, attention to details, and communications were superb. I highly recommend them.
Ray showed us homes that were exactly what we asked him to and we found a house quite quickly. He was great and went the extra mile to keep things on track and going smoothly for the closing. He kept us informed of what was happening throughout the process and always responded right away to any questions we had.
Ray made everything very easy for me and was very informative and responded in a timely fashion , I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Kristina was a true professional in all respects. My sale was challenging and drawn out due to a number of issues regarding the condition of the home, but Kristina made the difficulties a lot more manageable. She always returned my emails and texts very timely and was there to handle a variety of tasks that I could not do myself due to my remote location. Highly recommended!!
Kristina sold our very unique, waterfront property. I had it listed for a year with a different agent without an offer. We got an offer within 2 months. There were many problems to be worked through because of the property issues, but Kristina was attentive, and worked through each issue with me. She was quick to return calls and emails and kept the process moving. I believe her knowledge helped bring the property to the final sale, where it could have easily gone bad at any number of points. I needed help with referrals of contractors to correct issues and it was clear to me that using her name got me very good response.
Kristina and Ray were excellent. Very knowledgable and knew the right price point. Always available to answer questions and always informed us of what was to happen next.
“Very pleasant to work with. Having a duo team is a plus. Would recommend Kristina and Ray to help you with your buy and/or sell of your home. Kristina was very helpful with recommendations to help sell my home at top dollar. Ray took great pictures that showed the beauty of my home. Kristina also gave me a great recommendation for a local inspector. Was very knowledgeable with the area I was looking to move to and found me a perfect place within my budget.”
“They were very skilled and professionalized kept me updated on Everything that was going on regarding the sale of my property and sold my home between 3 and 4 weeks. It was a pleasure to work with them.”
I have worked with Kristina Erins in looking for a home and I successfully found one with her help. Throughout the process, she was pleasant, positive, professional and spot on with her real estate knowledge and experience. I would use her again when looking to sell or buy another home, and I would also recommend her to my family and friends.
“My husband and I struggled through a very difficult sale, but Kristina and Ray were phenomenal in the way they handled this situation. Kristina’s expertise was unsurpassed when we had questions and concerns.”
-Shirlane Yannuzzi and Mike Yannuzzi
We dealt with Kristina from the very beginning (and met Ray at the final walk-through). We contacted Kristina through Zillow to ask the availability of one of her listings. We knew right then that we wanted her by our side throughout our home search. She did not disappoint! She took us to several properties, but in our hearts we knew we wanted the first one we looked at.
Our original lenders were moving at a snail’s pace so Kristina recommended someone she knew and trusted. Within two days, we had an accepted offer! Further, she put us in touch with a lawyer who was great (and at a reasonable price).
She remained in touch throughout the whole process and answered any questions we had for her as well as relaying messages from the seller.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use both Kristina and Ray for your home search. I’m sure the sellers would agree with that sentiment as well!
Lastly, you may have read, as a buyer, that you don’t want your agent representing the seller as well. Ignore that statement when it comes to Kristina and Ray! They’ll work just as hard for you as they will for the seller.
As first time home buyers, I’m so glad we had Kristina there for us.
-Barry and Jenn Chesner
“Kristina was recommended to me by someone that worked with Kristina about 10 years ago. They said ” if she is still in business you should reach out to her, she was excellent”. I contacted her at around 8pm on a Sunday night and she instantly emailed me back to set up a time to speak the next day. prior to connecting with Kristina, I was discouraged by a previous lender/realtor that buying a home would not be an option for us. Kristina turned that right around! She got me in touch with Annie-Mac, we went through the process amazingly smooth and quick. We set up time to see houses in less than a week, found one we loved, and closed in a little over a month! We couldn’t rave more about Kristina and her step by step guidance. I would absolutely recommend her time and time again!”
“We tried to sell our home a year ago with a different agency and unfortunately did not receive any offers so we decided to take it off the market four months later. Kristina and Ray drove by one Saturday morning and introduced themselves. I informed them that I did not want to place my house on the market until the Spring but that they could reach out to me again in a couple of months. Sure enough, they did reach out and we set up a meeting to do a walk thru and discuss their marketing plan. They were very prepared and had recent stats, market information, comps, etc. Their preparedness, willingness to listen to our concerns, and professionalism convinced us right away that they were the right team for the job! We had several showings during the 1st week as well as an open house. Within a little over a week, we received an offer and accepted. Kristina and Ray were very responsive and always reachable. I was very pleased with their services and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to sell their home!”
Kristina Erins helped me buy a house in the Parsippany area in Feb 2018, and it was an absolute pleasure working with her through the entire process. She was always very responsive to any questions I had. She referred me to a great attorney & home inspector, which made the entire process as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to buy a house!
– Mohammad Akhtar
They did a great job both showing the house, recommending great contractors for home inspection, septic, and water testing, etc and were always available and helpful for me and the rest of my team, (lenders, attorney, etc.) every step of the way through my home-buying process. I managed to close on a bank-owned property in 3 weeks from the time the offer was accepted and it would not have happened without their help. Both first-time buyers and those experienced in real estate transactions will find working with them to be an excellent experience. Thank you both for your hard work, professionalism, great communication, and thoughtfulness through the entire process.
As first time home buyers we were completely clueless. Ray went above and beyond to help guide us every step of the way and make us feel like the process was a bit less stressful. No matter the time of day he was always a phone call away and communicated everything throughout the process. Though Ray remained professional from start to finish we feel like we could consider him a friend for how involved he has been in our lives these past few months and how kind he has been to us. We hope to do business with Ray again when it comes to selling our home in the future and buying the next one in the years ahead!
Ray is great person and a pleasure to work with. Trustworthy, efficient, responsive, and so much more. I would highly recommend him to do business with.
We found Kristina and Ray through agent finder on Zillow based on their experience, customer ratings and company (Weichert). They had a lot of sales in the past year and seemed to be able to sell homes fairly quickly. This was a key requirement because I was relocating for a new job out of state. We met with Kristina and Ray and explained out situation and told them our last 2 house sales both sold within a week, so they had a tough bar to meet. Well, to get to the point, my wife and I were not disappointed. We listed out house and had an offer within 3 days Kristina and Ray were very knowledgeable, professional and responsive. I would highly recommend them.
-Brad and Alison Moskiewiz
“Thanks for finding me the perfect home. I love it! I will always remember your help and will tell anyone who needs help to look you up.”
“Thank you Kristina for all your hard work and dedication. I truly appreciate your kind efforts. Hopefully the market will pick up and you will not have to endure anything like this again!!”
They are absolutely the best team in Sparta, they do not stop until your house is sold. I could not have asked for anyone better.
Thanks again Kristina and Ray
