"Erik Housh is the most conscientious and thorough realtor I have ever met. He has handled the purchase, sale and leasing for all of my properties for over 30 years now.

He finds investment deals when it seems impossible, and his ability to facilitate the most complex multi-property/multi-state 1031 exchanges is remarkable.

He often has the answer to complicated issues faster than the attorneys — I sometimes wonder if he secretly went to law school."

-- Narsai David, Colusa Circle Properties

"For more than 25 years Erik Housh has served as Smith & Walters’ real estate broker. On our company’s behalf, he has secured many tenants and negotiated the leases on our Berkeley property, the entire block within Gilman and Harrison Streets and 8th and 9th Streets. Erik has kept eight units fully leased with excellent tenants.

Three years ago, Erik became our property manager as well. It is amazing how much better everything looks and operates since he took over. He is familiar with every part of each building, he plans for the repair and replacement of major systems, like HVAC and roofs, and he sees that the outer areas are kept looking fresh, clean and safe. He considers our financial situation and budgets accordingly and he responds immediately to calls from our tenants. Our largest tenant (and the hardest to please) reports back to us that they are extremely happy with Erik.

For us, the owners, it is a wonderful to know that everything is being taken care of in the best and most efficient manner, with full accountability. All we need to do is relax and reap the benefits.

In short, Erik is the rare person who loves his job and who is never satisfied until everything looks great and works perfectly. I recommend him very highly."

-- Sharon Walters, Managing Member Smith and Walters, Inc.

“I've worked with Erik Housh for over 20 years and consider him to be our 'go to' person when it comes to highly knowledgeable commercial real estate assistance.

Erik has proven to be keenly knowledgeable in the Investment arena, including in retail, office and industrial properties in local, regional and national markets.

Erik has realized great success in supporting my group with property leasing, acquisitions and disposition."

-- Patrick Leaper, Partner, Moeser Square Partners, LLC, formerly GLM Real Estate Services, Inc.

““Erik is the kind of agent I wanted to be 30 years ago, when I had a real estate license. Then I met and began working with Erik, and I decided to let him take over. He is truly able to stand in the shoes of his client. He is very knowledgeable, one-hundred percent ethical and knows what people and resources are required to successfully get the job done. Maybe most important, he is willing to offer candid or even unpleasant advice when the situation calls for such.

Erik knows when he is the person to get the job done right, as well as when the task may call for a referral to another highly-qualified broker. I know from my decades of personally working with him, as well as from feedback provided by others I’ve referred and who became his clients, he consistently performs professionally, effectively and always gets results. On behalf of clients ranging from a hardcore East Coast pros to a local owner or tenant, Erik has the experience, intelligence, energy and commitment needed to successfully complete any project he takes on.

Some of the projects Erik has handled for me:

  • The acquisition of a large shopping center in Redding
  • The entitlement and sale of a 155-unit mixed use project in Berkeley, including securing a national retail tenant of 30,000 square feet
  • The redevelopment of an entire city block of retail space and the subsequent lease-up on Solano Avenue in Albany
  • The purchase, redevelopment, re-tenanting and sale of a large medical office building at El Cerrito Plaza
  • The sale of a couple of large apartment complexes in North Berkeley.

In completing all the above and much more, Erik, quite simply, did an outstanding job.”
