What Our Clients Say
We lucked into finding Eric to represent us in our Athens home search. As the saying goes, ``It's better to be lucky than good.`` Well, we were certainly lucky, and Eric is much better than just good at what he does. If not for Eric's reputation in the market, the seller would have accepted a different buyer's offer, and we would not have been able to buy our home. In addition, Eric and his team (especially Warren Johnson), helped us every step of the way. I simply could not recommend Eric (and Warren) any higher for anyone looking for a home in Athens!

-Buyer, 2017

We so enjoyed having Eric as our real estate agent. The process was painless and even enjoyable. He kept us up to date on all showings, feedback and general information about our property. He went out of his way to help us sell the property quickly and at a great price. He is professional, thorough, pleasant and a quality agent. I would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs!

-Buyer, 2017

Buying a house when you live out of state can be especially challenging. But, Eric and his team made the process seamless. He was responsive via email working to figure out our preferences and sent us home options in a rapidly changing market. We were on a tight time frame to find and purchase a home. Eric maintained email correspondence with us before and after our purchase. Additionally, he was able to accommodate electronic signing of paperwork that could easily be signed on our phones. We had contacted other agents before being referred to Eric, one of which still hasn't contacted us. Eric continues to help us navigate trusted vendors in Clarke County.

-Buyer, 2017

We worked with Eric in buying a house in the Boulevard neighborhood. We were in the process of moving to Athens from Atlanta with a 2 year old and a new baby and Eric was extremely helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend him.

-Buyer, 2017

Warren worked with Eric Vaughn to help sell my house in Watkinsville. He took excellent photos, made suggestions and was extremely helpful. After the house sold, Warren was extremely savvy, pointing out construction flaws, as well as highlighting good features, in various future buying possibilities. He is very knowledgeable and has an expert eye for aesthetics which I found useful. I love my new home in Statham!

-Buyer & Seller, 2017

We have been trying to write a review for Eric and Warren for 2 months now. They are so wonderful, are so very helpful, that we very much wanted to list everything that they had done for us during our home buying experience. 2 single spaced pages later and we had just skimmed the surface. So for the sake of brevity, let us just say that YOU WILL NOT REGRET choosing Eric as your agent. He and Warren will be there for you through thick or thin. They will allow you to take the lead and simply stand behind you protectively, ready to catch you should you stumble and fall and/or they will take you by the hand and guide you through the process, teaching you all the way. For us they did both. And should those descriptions sound more like the acts of family rather than that of an agent... well by the end you will most certainly think of them as family. We can say with all honesty that the most bitter sweet experience of finding our home is that we are no longer in regular, really near daily, contact with the two of them. Quite frankly, we miss them. Fortunately even once your home is purchased and all the papers signed, Eric and Warren are more than willing to provide advice and references for all your home owner questions. The process of buying a home can be stressful and scary. A metaphorical dragon, if you will. With Eric and Warren as your knights in shining armor, you will slay it together and find your castle.

-Buyer, 2017

Selling my home was a true pleasure with Eric as my realtor. A consummate professional, I never had a moment of doubt that my best interests were always his goal. His ability to keep me calm, provide honest and constructive feedback, and manage the showings on a timely and courteous schedule never wavered. There were no requests too large or too small that he and his staff did not make time to accommodate. I would not hesitate to use Eric again and can highly recommend.

-Seller, 2017

Eric Vaughn made the enormous and detailed process of selling my home so much easier. He walked me through every step with kindness, patience and grace and I am so very grateful. I highly recommend Eric if you're looking to sell your home.

-Seller, 2017

Warren Johnson makes selling a house MUCH more enjoyable. Always quick with a smile, it's Warren's attitude and work ethic that makes him a great realtor. Highly recommend.

-Buyer, 2017

Choosing Eric to represent us was the smartest choice we made during the home buying process. We have lived in Athens for many years but were first time home buyers. When we decided to start looking, we asked several friends and colleagues that have been through the process who they would recommend to help us—Eric’s name came up time and again. The first thing that impressed me about Eric was his responsiveness. Anytime I would email Eric with a listing or a question, he would respond to me immediately. He instantly made us feel like we were his only clients and always his top priority! That was incredibly important to us, especially since this was our first time purchasing a home (and we had A LOT of questions/concerns). It was also very important to us that we work with someone that we felt had a lot of integrity. This was the most expensive purchase that we had ever made—we needed someone who would give us honest feedback and help to ensure that we were spending our money on a home that was worth our investment. Eric always had our priorities and wish lists in mind but also gave us really useful advice if he saw something that he thought wasn’t a good buy or something that we might not like later on. He helped us to see opportunities and to identify important aspects of homes that we might have otherwise overlooked. After some searching, we found our perfect house the day it went on the market. Thanks to Eric’s quick work, we were able to schedule a showing for the following day and put in an offer soon after. Eric guided us through the offer process, giving us advise and perspective on how we should proceed. With his help, we were able to get an amazing house at a great price, even though at the time there was barely anything on the market and tons of people looking for homes. I’ve heard so many horror stories about buying a house, but my husband and I were amazed at how easy and smooth everything went. I honestly believe that we would not be in our home today if we’d have gone with anyone other than Eric!

I really loved working with Warren to sell our home in Historic Boulevard. It was hard to decide the sell a house that we loved so much, but Warren made the process a breeze. We had several offers within the first couple of days! Listen to the advice they give you! It saves so much heartache (and back ache!) We were able to choose the best offer for our needs based on Warren's experience and everything worked out smoothly and happily. Warren took BEAUTIFUL pictures of our home and really made it shine for our listings. I really appreciated seeing a home that I loved so much for 10 years look so wonderful for our listing. (Is it weird that I wanted to keep them all and hang them in our new home?) All in all we had a great experience selling our home with Warren. I felt like we were in capable hands.

-Seller, 2017

Eric and his team were absolutely amazing to work with. My wife and I worked with Eric to find and purchase our first home. Eric was extremely helpful to us in finding new properties to look at, and we really appreciated all of his valuable feedback throughout the process. Eric was extremely professional, friendly, and available. He always got back with us in a very timely manner. He was also great at locating properties that fit our needs and he made sure we had a thorough knowledge of each property we explored. Once we found the house we wanted to purchase, he helped us every step of the way. We were very unfamiliar with the the negotiation and closing process, but Eric made everything very easy for us. When the time comes for us to purchase our next house we will absolutely call Eric and his team again.

-Buyer, 2017

We really enjoyed working with Eric! We loved his perspective. Be specific about what you need, and flexible about what you want. No home has everything, but you'll get damn close!

-Buyer & Seller, 2017

Eric worked patiently with my wife and me for over two years, until we found the perfect house for us. Then he turned around and sold our old house! Couldn't recommend him more highly.

-Buyer & Seller, 2017

Eric was great! He was able to quickly understand what I was looking for and pointed out the positives and potential negatives of each house. Very knowledgeable, helpful and patient! He is also easy going and the whole family liked him. In the end we got a great house we love and enjoyed the experience!

-Buyer, 2016

My husband and I were very impressed with Eric and his team! He went above and beyond to help us find the right house in a very short time. He provided advice when asked and he always made us feel comfortable. He provided us with an excellent home inspector and was always there to answer our questions. Despite it was not our first home, Eric and his team walked us through every step of the closing process making it stress-free. We highly recommend Eric and the team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

-Buyer, 2016

Eric is a professional and knowledgeable realtor. He is patient and truly listens to your ideas. Eric is able to guide you to be realistic regarding what you want and what you can afford. He knows the area very well and will search tirelessly to find a home that is right for you. I would highly recommend him.

-Buyer, 2016

We absolutely loved working with Eric and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy in the Athens Clarke County area. He is that rare realtor who combines comprehensive knowledge of the area, shark-like negotiation skills, true southern charm and a commitment to treating every client, no matter what their budget, like a million-dollar client. He really listened to our wants and needs, walked us through the whole process from start to finish, and even though there were some ups and downs with our negotiations (there always are!) we knew we were in good hands with Eric and are THRILLED with the house we got - and the price we got it for! If you need a realtor in Athens, look no further than Eric Vaughn.

-Buyer, 2016

I couldn't have picked a better realtor to help me though the process of purchasing my first home! Eric was quick to understand what I was looking for within my budget. Despite his busy schedule, he was always quick to respond and available to meet. He is undoubtedly the in-town expert. Eric and his equally amazing assistant Warren were very knowledgeable, encouraging, and supportive along the way. Expectations exceeded.

-Buyer, 2016

Eric was absolutely great to work with! He was very responsive and always available! He worked hard at helping with negotiation and got us a full price offer on our house! I would highly recommend and definitely would use again in the future!

-Seller, 2016

Eric was the agent who sold my house for me. He helped me accomplish everything that was required to sell my house, providing excellent workers to get the house in shape and bring it up to inspection requirements, presenting it effectively online, hosting an open house, and giving excellent advice regarding pricing at various points and negotiating during the selling process. In addition to providing this kind of crucial expertise, Eric is honest, sincere and a highly talented communicator. He always maintained good cheer and a positive attitude. Eric went far beyond what I expected in a realtor. I could not recommend him highly enough.

-Seller, 2016

We are currently in the process of buying a home in Atlanta. Our experience there has made us evenly more keenly aware of Eric's superior level of service!

-Seller, 2015

Eric's knowledge about my neighborhood and value far surpassed any research I did before listing. After settling my concerns and agreeing on a price, Eric had offers coming in immediately. My house was under contract and the selling process started faster than I ever imagined. The process was very smooth and all questions asked were answered immediately. I would recommend Eric to anyone looking to sell or buy a house.

-Seller, 2016

When I think of Eric Vaughn words that immediately come to mind are professional, realistic and honest. From the moment we met about getting my house sold I was impressed with his attention to detail and work ethic. He was there by phone, email and text every day throughout the process. I was so worried about getting my house sold and yet with Eric's help it was a painless process! I would recommend Eric Vaughn and his team without hesitation and would use him again in a second if I returned to Athens!

-Seller, 2015

Selling a house with Eric and his team at the helm was a breeze. Through a combination of his minor, but important, suggested improvements and the exquisite photographs, our house was under contract within a week of its listing. His attention to detail, quick and knowledgable responses to our questions, and professional demeanor turned a complex process into an enjoyable one.

-Seller, 2015

This was my first experience with a house sale. Eric was very professional and understanding of my situation and guided me every step of the way. He responded quickly to my texts, emails and phone calls and was always encouraging ( even when I was discouraged). I was very pleased with his expertise and advise and did get the price I needed - all thanks to Eric

-Seller, 2015

Eric was terrific in helping us list and sell our house. He gave suggestions in preparing the house to be listed, kept us updated on showings and was effective in negotiating the sale. He gave us a contact for a handyman for a minor repair and kept us informed about the events leading up to closing. We will definitely contact him for future real estate transactions!

-Seller, 2015

Eric was a trusted ally throughout my experience. I had questions and admittedly a few reservations after touring the property, but he took time to help me weigh pros and cons, and to understand the property's potential. I never felt pressured or sucked into a sales pitch, but was confident that I had someone looking out for my best interest. Eric's experience, local knowledge, contacts, and professionalism will assure any potential buyer or seller that they have the right guy.

-Seller, 2015

I was dreading selling our old house and buying a new one. However, Eric Vaughn made the whole process not only painless but even enjoyable. He went above and beyond the call of duty. His kind personality put me right at ease. He explained all the necessary details completely and clearly. He made us feel like we could call him anytime with questions or worries, and he always put our minds at ease. He is a gentle, conscientious person and a man of integrity. I would recommend him highly to anyone!

-Seller, 2015

Eric was very, very easy to deal with. I feel like he listened to my concerns, and really respected those, as opposed to pushing me to complete the sale. He did a lot of extra things, like offering to go over and let the pipes drip when there was a freeze warning, or picking up extra bales of pinestraw for me to spread- without being asked! He was also completely available, and very responsive, very professional. And he sold my house in a timely manner. Really, a great experience overall. And I would, and have, recommended him to others!

-Seller, 2015

I have had the pleasure of selling 2 houses and buying one, within a very short period of time, all with Eric as our agent. He is conscientious, thorough, responsive and personable. He made the whole process easy and worry-free. He provided us with the pertinent information in a very timely manner and always followed up quickly. He gave us plenty of feedback and advice that helped us make decisions. I so enjoyed working with Eric, that I am almost sad that we don't have any other real estate needs in the foreseeable future! I would highly recommend anyone relocating to or moving within the Athens area to contact Eric Vaughn. I know you will be pleased with his work.

-Seller, 2015

Our property was certainly a challenge as it was in the country and had some unconventional qualities. We were grateful that Eric was not only positive about the home but didn't suggest lots of expensive changes. Eric was amazing at responding to texts, emails and phone calls and even seemed to figure out quickly that it was easier for me to communicate via text and that my husband preferred the phone. Eric was professional, honest and incredibly quick to respond to any concerns or questions that arose during the process. His knowledge of the market and the real estate process allowed us to feel protected in negotiations. We have only good things to say about our experience with Eric and are very happy a friend directed us towards him.

-Seller, 2015

Eric is a realtor that is going to work for you. He is very professional and has wonderful customer service skills. He took the time to talk with you through everything along the way. I would recommend him to anyone in the Athens area that is looking to buy or sell. Eric will get the job done right!

-Seller, 2015

Eric sold my house in less than a month and was fantastic to work with! He was very patient and always responded quickly to messages. His assistant, Warren took the most amazing listing pictures and made my house fantastic! I would absolutely recommend and would definitely use again!

-Seller, 2015

We hired Eric to sell a house that we had completely restored. He and his staff were the ultimate in professionalism and responsiveness from the initial meeting through the taking of photographs and listing. His pricing was spot-on, and his knowledge of target market buyers was key. The house sold immediately. We couldn't recommend Eric highly enough and plan to use his services on our next flip.

-Seller, 2014

Eric was incredibly professional and worked diligently to sell our home. We felt as if we were his only client and the top priority, as I’m sure every other client feels as well. His communication with us was frequent and informative. Eric kept us in the loop on who was seeing the house and shared any feedback quickly. We always felt completely informed and on top of the process. He always reached out to us with any updates and to just check in.

- Seller, 2014

Eric is a true professional and very knowledgeable of the area. He is responsive, helpful, and takes the time to listen to clients' needs and preferences. I am thankful for the quality results and highly recommend Eric.

-Seller, 2014

When I began looking at a home, I didn't think I needed a real estate agent, but Eric certainly proved me wrong! While we have both lived in the Athens area for some time, Eric's knowledge of both the real estate market and the community was much deeper than mine. Additionally, he connected me to a local mortgage lender who offered rates that were comparable to the best online rates, and he suggested a top-notch home inspector who provided me with very valuable information on both the home I purchased and one other home. Eric was quick to respond to messages, and he was very committed to finding a home that suited my needs and preferences. In short, Eric's service has completely changed my view of the real estate profession. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone buying or selling a home.

-Buyer, 2014

Eric did a great job working with us to find just what we were looking for. He was available anytime we needed and experienced enough to anticipate many of our questions. Eric is a pleasure to work with and highly professional.

-Buyer, 2014

Eric made it possible for us to accomplish what seemed an impossible goal to us old folks who had stayed put for 37 years: moving to Athens from Albany, New York. All along this path, he gave us the highest level of professional service. His sense of responsibility, careful attention to detail, information sharing and integrity gave us the confidence that we could find and buy a new home in an unfamiliar place. Beyond that, his friendly, engaging personality made Athens a welcoming place. To top it off, his wit changed house shopping from the dreaded task it has been to one that was actually fun. Needless to say we think he is the best real estate agent that there could be.

-Buyer, 2014

Eric is a full-time real estate agent who can be reached seven days a week. His clients know they can expect the very best customer service possible. Eric often exceeds client expectations and goes far beyond the realm of what is expected of an agent. He provides not only impeccable attention to detail regarding the buying or selling of client’s home, but he also thinks far beyond the transactions anticipating what his clients will need often times before they do.
My husband and I were very impressed with Eric and his team! He went above and beyond to help us find the right house in a very short time.

Absolutely, without question, I recommend Eric. Here is why: I am weary of realtors, so I decided to use a listing-only agent to put my home on the MLS and then sell by owner. Eric had a client that was interested in my home, so he contacted me for a showing. After the showing, he called me and gave me feedback, but then he informed me that I had no pictures of my home on the MLS! A detail our ``listing only agent`` missed. I was amazed and impressed that Eric would take enough interest in me (not knowing me at all, at the time), to help me out. Long story short, I terminated that contract and called Eric asking if he would be willing to list my home. He revitalized my listing with remarkable pictures, promoted my home relentlessly to other realtors, utilized technology through the web using creative methods, gave me open and honest feedback on how we could better stage our home, and always followed up with us. He is very easy to contact, is extremely responsive, and took a very personal interest in ensuring our home was properly marketed. No detail was missed in the closing paperwork and everything went very smoothly. You can, with tremendous confidence, list or buy with Eric.

My family was contemplating a move to the Athens area this past summer, and we worked with Eric Vaughn on several occasions to view properties. After our first meeting with Eric, he sent us an email, summarizing what he felt we were looking for in a house. Upon reading the email, we realized that Eric had not only listened intently to what we had said, but had also observed our reactions in the homes we were viewing. Eric was able to synthesize all of that information in order to create a list of our priorities--a list that we could not have created on our own! We referred to this list often to help us make decisions. We were continually impressed with Eric's level of professionalism and his genuine desire to help us, as his clients. We felt that he engaged with us as our advocate as we tried to make a difficult decision. In the end, we decided not to buy in the Athens area. As we thanked Eric for his time and services, and apologized that we would not be buying a house, his response to us was this: ``DO NOT apologize. I have enjoyed helping you sort things out so that you could make the best decision. Every property that I showed you has made me a better agent. I will use my knowledge of these properties to help my next client.`` To us, that is the epitome of professionalism. We are currently in the process of buying a home in Atlanta. Our experience there has made us evenly more keenly aware of Eric's superior level of service!

He did a lot of extra things, like offering to go over and let the pipes drip when there was a freeze warning, or picking up extra bales of pinestraw for me to spread- without being asked! He was also completely available, and very responsive, very professional. And he sold my house in a timely manner. Really, a great experience overall. And I would, and have, recommended him to others!

Our property was certainly a challenge as it was in the country and had some unconventional qualities. We were grateful that Eric was not only positive about the home but didn't suggest lots of expensive changes. Eric was amazing at responding to texts, emails and phone calls and even seemed to figure out quickly that it was easier for me to communicate via text and that my husband preferred the phone. Eric was professional, honest and incredibly quick to respond to any concerns or questions that arose during the process. His knowledge of the market and the real estate process allowed us to feel protected in negotiations. We have only good things to say about our experience with Eric and are very happy a friend directed us towards him.

I have had the pleasure of selling 2 houses and buying one, within a very short period of time, all with Eric as our agent. He is conscientious, thorough, responsive and personable. He made the whole process easy and worry-free. He provided us with the pertinent information in a very timely manner and always followed up quickly. He gave us plenty of feedback and advice that helped us make decisions. I so enjoyed working with Eric, that I am almost sad that we don't have any other real estate needs in the foreseeable future! I would highly recommend anyone relocating to or moving within the Athens area to contact Eric Vaughn. I know you will be pleased with his work.

Eric was terrific in helping us list and sell our house. He gave suggestions in preparing the house to be listed, kept us updated on showings and was effective in negotiating the sale. He gave us a contact for a handyman for a minor repair and kept us informed about the events leading up to closing. We will definitely contact him for future real estate transactions!

Eric is a realtor that is going to work for you. He is very professional and has wonderful customer service skills. He took the time to talk with you through everything along the way. I would recommend him to anyone in the Athens area that is looking to buy or sell. Eric will get the job done right!

Eric sold my house in less than a month and was fantastic to work with! He was very patient and always responded quickly to messages. His assistant, Warren took the most amazing listing pictures and made my house fantastic! I would absolutely recommend and would definitely use again!

We recently moved to Athens and worked with Eric Vaughn to help us purchase a house. We wanted to send a note to let you know that Eric was incredibly effective as our realtor and how much we appreciated working with him. Moving from so far away was stressful, and having Eric as an advocate and supporter made the process less stressful than it otherwise might have been. We ran into some typical real estate snags, but Eric was patient and walked us through each and every step carefully and thoughtfully. He was the perfect balance of counselor, advocate, and advisor.

We purchased new construction and were 1500 miles away for most of the construction process. Eric kept us posted on the progress of the home and kept us in the loop with any questions or concerns. He was (and still is!) very clear and quick in his communication with us and has gone above and beyond by helping us through some post-closing issues with the new house. Overall, Eric was fun to work with and we enjoyed the opportunity to get to know him. He helped to make our transition to Athens a smooth one and gave an excellent impression of the city.

Eric Vaughn, with Coldwell Banker, understands the legal issues involved with selling a home and the contracts for the sale/purchase. This legal knowledge is vital, our opinion, when it comes to real estate. Not all agents have this level of understanding and expertise. Also, real estate can be emotional and Eric understands this as he communicates well options and what still is to be done to sell you home.

Dear Eric, You made it possible for us to accomplish what seemed an impossible goal to us old folks who had stayed put for 37 years: moving to Athens from Albany, New York. All along this path you gave us the highest level of professional service. Your sense of responsibility, careful attention to detail, information sharing and integrity gave us the confidence that we could find and but a new home in an unfamiliar place. Beyond that, your friendly, engaging personality made Athens a welcoming place. To top it off, your wit changed house shopping from the dreaded task it has been to one that was actually fun.

Needless to say we think you are the best real estate agent that there could be. Fondly, Kathy and Jim

I wanted to thank you again for your kindness in referring us to Eric Vaughn for the sale of our house on The Plaza: he was wonderful to work with, and we only wish we had known him during our time in Athens. Thank you for such a good experience of the neighborhood; we will miss y'all!
We hired Eric to sell a house that we had completely restored. He and his staff were the ultimate in professionalism and responsiveness from the initial meeting through the taking of photographs and listing. His pricing was spot-on, and his knowledge of target market buyers was key. The house sold immediately. We couldn't recommend Eric highly enough and plan to use his services on our next flip.

Eric is a true professional and very knowledgeable of the area. He is responsive, helpful, and takes the time to listen to clients' needs and preferences. I am thankful for the quality results and highly recommend Eric.

Eric was incredibly professional and worked diligently to sell our home. We felt as if we were his only client and the top priority, as I’m sure every other client feels as well. His communication with us was frequent and informative. Eric kept us in the loop on who was seeing the house and shared any feedback quickly. We always felt completely informed and on top of the process. He always reached out to us with any updates and to just check in. His marketing of the home was impressive. We only entertained interested buyers and he made sure other agents and buyers were aware of our home and what it had to offer. At a time when very little was selling in our price range, Eric sold our house quickly and at a price we were happy with. We would recommend Eric without a second thought to any seller or buyer. He makes the process easy and as pleasant as possible.

When I began looking at a home, I didn't think I needed a real estate agent, but Eric certainly proved me wrong! While we have both lived in the Athens area for some time, Eric's knowledge of both the real estate market and the community was much deeper than mine. Additionally, he connected me to a local mortgage lender who offered rates that were comparable to the best online rates, and he suggested a top-notch home inspector who provided me with very valuable information on both the home I purchased and one other home. Eric was quick to respond to messages, and he was very committed to finding a home that suited my needs and preferences. In short, Eric's service has completely changed my view of the real estate profession. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone buying or selling a home.
