    Subject: Letter of Recommendation for Erica Orr, Empty nesters, like us, have difficulty knowing when the right time is for down-sizing to a smaller home. With her bubbly personality and her boundless energy, Erica developed an excellent relationship with us as she canvassed our neighborhood. So when the time came to down-size, we knew who we wanted for Real Estate support. Erica gave us information related to the local home values and current interest rates that resulted in the selling of our former home and the purchase of a "right-sized" home at the most fiscally, beneficial time for us. She developed an excellent working relationship with the Real Estate Agent who represented our purchase and they collaborated to ensure the seamless transition from our former home to the new home. Additionally, Erica knows instinctively that moving is difficult, both physically and emotionally. She assisted by providing informative lists for businesses that assist with relocations, i.e., moving companies, handyman, exterminators, professional housekeeping, & gardeners. She visited or called frequently to keep us informed of the status of the sale of our home. She hosted our garage sale with advertisements and actually attended and helped sell merchandise! Finally, Erica is a professional. She educates and supports her clientele through the Real Estate process. There is an initial meeting and manual that contains valuable information related to selling and purchase of homes. There is data that shares the current state of the market. There is online support. And most importantly, Erica is there to explain the process as it progresses. We highly recommend Erica Orr as a Real Estate Representative. Dont be surprised if you make a friend in the process! Mr. and Mrs. John Still Corona
    As first-time homebuyers, we were initially uneasy about the home buying process. Erikas professional, friendly approach and abundance of knowledge put us at ease. She was always available for any questions we had. She worked very hard for us and kept us well informed at all times. It was a real pleasure to work with someone whose primary interest was finding us the home that would fit us best. When we found the home we wanted, having Erikas experience on our side helped us get our offer accepted, despite the fact there were many bids in play. She went above and beyond during both the home search and buying process. We would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to have a wonderful, smooth home buying experience! Sincerely, Greg and Jessica Everett Murrieta

    Dear Erika Without a doubt, you are the best Real Estate Professional we have worked with. We say that with confidence as we have purchased and sold many houses. As you remember, we met on the phone. We tasked you with helping us relocate from Northern California. With only internet research, we thought Corona was where we wanted to live and we wanted you to help us confirm that location. For anyone considering to work with you they should know that you: Know how to zero in on your clients requirements; understanding requirement that may not be articulated Will do whatever it takes to find properties that meet your clients requirements Guide (especially Newcomers) on serious things they should know/thinking about when purchasing a house. For us your advice of selecting a place off the 91 corridor was priceless! ALWAYS consider your clients best interest throughout the buying processing. We were well informed and VERY WELL represented. We still comment today about how much you did for us to ensure everything was just right! While we were your clients, we could tell that you genuinely wanted the best for us. As many know, buying a home can be quite an emotional roller coaster. We have to say working with you, it felt we were always soaring. There were no surprises, doubts or disappointments. You continue to Rank #1. Without hesitation, we would recommend you to anyone looking to buy/sell their home in the Inland Empire Area. Sincerely, Alison Oshodi, Corona
    I would like to personally thank, and highly recommend Erika Orr for all your real estate needs. Erika was extremely helpful and patient, walking me through every of the process to find and purchase a home. She provided with a variety of options and helped me to narrow down the list of what I was really looking for in a home. With Erika's assistance, I am now the proud owner of a brand-new home. Erika was there with me throughout the entire process, and I felt that she always had my best interest at heart. She was professional, personable, and now a friend. Janet Sheely, Lake Elsinore, CA Lake Elsinore
    Dear Erika, Rose and I want to thank you for all your help with the purchase of our home in Lake Elsinore. From our first contact on the internet, to our first meeting in person, during all our visits to over thirty properties and all of your phone calls and emails in between, you have been a true professional and a joy to work with. At times we were discouraged and frustrated with the process, but your patience, confidence and knowledge got us to the finish line. You explained things thoroughly and in terms and language we could understand and even after the sale was final you continued to follow up with contact numbers for utilities and emergency services we will need at move in time. In a world where people often don't seem to take pride in their work it was refreshing to work with someone who was positive, excited and upbeat about what they were doing and who seemed to really care about our concerns and our needs. By the end of the process we felt we not only found someone who helped us make a huge decision affecting our future, we also found a new friend. We would not hesitate to use your services in the future or to recommend you to others. With sincere thanks, Steve and Rose Strnad, Lake Elsinore, CA
    Dear Erika, Farrah and I wish to thank you again for the great job that you did for us in selling our home in Murrieta. Your knowledge, professionalism, and integrity were much appreciated and rare in business today. In every aspect of the transaction you went above and beyond. The selling of the house was stressful to us, but with your dedication and extra efforts you made it happen. We both enjoyed working with you and would recommend you highly to anyone seeking realtor services. Rick and Farrah Douglas Murrieta
    Dear home buyers We have bought a house five days ago in Riverside, As we are new to USA and it is our first house here, we were really concerned and have a lot of tension in terms of passing this complex process at least for us. But, we were very lucky to meet Erika Orr the kindest and most professional Realtor ever. She definitely made it very easy and smooth for us. We will not say the other brokers are bad, but there are too many added values with Erika, she is a great interacting and motivated person, very strict regarding her customer rights, benefits, and comprehensive safe process. She has proven even in this short period that she is one of our highly trusted friends we have ever met before. We highly advise anyone to use her for his next home I keep telling that to whoever I meet because she really deserve to be trusted Finally, many thanks Erika for all the great service you have offered. Randa, Lawrance, Donice, Wajd Riverside
    Re: Erika Orr real estate services To Potential Real Estate Customers, My husband and I would like to highly recommend Erika Orr for all of your real estate buying and selling needs. We did not personally know Erika when we hired her to help us sell our home in Corona, CA. She won our trust when she came to us with a full report prepared in advance to help us make the best decision regarding pricing our home and how she would market it. She advised us through every step of the process to ensure all legal aspects were met and handled correctly and in a timely manner. We sold our house quickly and received a better price than if we had tried to sell it on own. Erika is a seasoned, well respected, professional in her industry. She made every effort to market our home ranging from creating and distributing direct mail pieces in key targeted areas, multiple open house events, and advertising. She also goes above and beyond the requirements of real estate agent to help make your move easier and less stressful. She is the consummate professional and has become our friend in the process. Do yourself a favor, hire Erika, she is the hardest working professional in the business! (and I come from a real estate family) Sincerely, Sheri and Eric Sands - Corona
    Dear Erika, Thank you so much for your tireless efforts in meeting with me for open houses in both the Green River area as well as the Cypress/La Palma area. It has been such a pleasure working with you while looking at a lot of beautiful homes. It was quite a long process, but thanks to you, I've found such a nice place to stay in. This would not have been possible without your hard work, effort, and commitment to me and my family. Thank you for making us a priority and I hope we'll be in touch. All the best, Pir-an La Palma
    Kudos to Erika Orr for doing an exceptional job in getting my house sold in an expeditious manner and at a reasonable price! Shes VERY hard working, knowledgeable, conscientious, and professional. I also found Erika to be empathetic and compassionate, as well as a good listener. Her empathy, compassion, and listening skills made a difficult time in my life that much more bearable. I feel that Erika genuinely cared about my situation and displayed an understanding above and beyond the call of duty. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Erika to anyone who needs a realtor. Sincerely, Darnell Price - Murrieta
    As of yesterday afternoon, our home has officially closed escrow thanks to Erika Orr. Her efforts to market and show our home on consistent basis, represent our interests as sellers, and coordinate all aspects of our sale put her a notch above the rest! If we weren't moving out of state, we would have also used Erika as our buyer's agent to buy our next home. Erika went above and beyond to coordinate a professional photographer to get the best photographs to show our home on the MLS and on mail-out flyers to potential buyers. She went above and beyond to market our home with flyers, mail-out notices, and on multiple social media platforms and forums. She also made sure open houses were held every weekend. Erika followed up with potential buyers consistently. I also would like to point out that during escrow, Erika went out of her way to suggest and coordinate any required services to help us schedule everything that needed to get done to close escrow. Her willingness to go above and beyond for us is greatly appreciated. I will definitely recommend Erika to friends and family buying and selling. Sincerly, Amy Ascani - Murrieta
    Erika Orr is an animal, a real estate animal! She is an energetic go-getter with a spring in her step. She never stopped working towards our goal until the entire process was finished. She exhibits an incredible, disciplined work ethic from which her clients benefit. She is impressive. She is very knowledgeable in the real estate industry. She cheerfully and aggressively assists you with any requests and leads and guides you through the process. She is available 24/7 and no request is too small or unimportant. She does not procrastinate; she moves like lightning. She provides all involved parties with requested items before you can blink an eye. She is very organized and it shows. She expects excellence from herself and her clients reap the benefits. Erika takes her clients needs to heart, she listens to you and wants you to be happy and buy the house of your dreams. Erika took to me to many homes before I found the right one. During the entire process, she was cheerful and fun. She never made me feel like I was wasting her time, she understands how important it is to find the right place. My time with Erika was delightful and I looked forward to seeing her each time we met. She is a lot of fun and someone I could see myself socializing with and even becoming friends with for a lifetime. She made buying my house a positive experience. I would absolutely work with her again and would recommend her to anyone. Joanne James Seal Beach
    To Whom It May Concern, My husband Eric and I had the pleasure of working with Erika Orr recently when it came to selling our first home. We met Erika years ago when she was walking through our neighborhood. She was handing out flyers and stopped to introduce herself, she was very friendly and had an infectious smile. I told my husband that if we were to ever sell our house in the future, I would call her; and so we did! We sat down with Erika and she explained the process of selling our home. She was well prepared on our first meeting and went over any questions and concerns we had and was very thorough. She came prepared with lots of extra information to back up everything she was explaining to us, such as comparable homes that were for sale or had recently sold nearby. Erika knew our area very well. We explained to her we needed to sell fast, as my husband was taking a new job soon in another town. She was very determined to help us and was prepared for the challenge ahead. Erika went above and beyond to market our house in every possible way that she could, from using the internet to walking door to door, even mailing cards out. Erika was always communicating with us letting us know day to day what feedback she was getting from every source coming in. In just a few short weeks our home was sold! Erika's perseverance and determination to help us at such short notice paid off! Erika made the entire process a breeze with no stress at all. From listing our home to closing escrow everything fell easily in place. We were so thrilled to have picked the best person for the job. Erika will be and has already been recommended to many friends and family. Anyone who chooses to work with her will be in for a pleasant surprise! Look no further the best realtor is right here! It was a pleasure working with you Erika Sincerely, Eric & Lisa Pratt Corona
    We are first-time homebuyers, so we really dont know what to look for. She really helped us out by pointing out everything what we should look out for. She worked with our budget and she wanted to make sure we can afford a house before she showed us the house. She is very motherly, and she is very dedicated to her work. She doesnt just point out the positives in a property, but she also points out the negatives. When she does that, we feel like she is caring for us, looking out for us, and not just trying to sell the property itself. Thanh and Kathie Nguyen Menifee
    Erika Orr is an amazing Real Estate agent. She is compassionate, caring, available and makes you feel that you are her special client. During our recent purchase of rental property my husband was in the hospital thus complicating a purchase, but Erika made every process easy, by meeting me where it was convenient or even sometimes after work hours. She was prompt to deliver the paperwork to the appropriate individuals. It was my please to work with Erika and I recommend her as an excellent agent. Gretchen Doughty - Corona
    My wife Uma and I (Lakshmi) can't say enough about Erika Orrs professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. She brings all these qualities to the table for her clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to their new home/community. Erika helped us buy a condo for our son in Riverside last week. She was able to find us the condo in less than two weeks. The great thing about Erica is that she is always working, weeknights, weekends you name it. I never had to leave a voicemail ever, not once, during our transaction, and thats impressive, really impressive. That is a great indication of the level of commitment Erika has to her service. Throughout the home buying process, she was extremely responsive and thoughtful in her recommendations to us. I've worked with a lot of realtors, and Erica is the most service-oriented realtor I have worked with. She even went so far to put a new combo lock box for the work crew to complete some work in the condo after the sale was complete and went above and beyond to even take pictures of the whole condo and send us the final pictures for the final walk thru as we were not able to be there. We are very comfortable and totally trust Erika and will for sure reach out to her for all our future real estate transactions and gladly recommend her to our family and friends. Erika has always come through with excellent and timely recommendations, with home services, handy man, etc.. She was referred to us by another agent who was going on vacation for a month and had such glowing things to say about her. To this day, she always makes us feel like helping us is her highest priority and want to thank her for everything she has done for us. Best, Uma & Lakshmi Riverside
    Friends and Neighbors, If you are ever thinking of selling, we have the Realtor for you!! We first considered selling our home in Corona Collections in 2013 and asked Erika Orr to help. That was our first interaction with Erika. At our first meeting Erika met us and, in her hand, she had a complete market analysis of the area including realistic price points, specific to what we could expect for our property. At that time the price we desired for our property wasnt where we needed it to be, so we decided to hold off. Fast forward to 2017. Based on Erikas first interaction with us we asked her back again to see if we were now ready to jump into the market. Once again, our first meeting with Erika included a comprehensive market analysis of the area. We then went on a tour of the neighborhood get an understanding of the houses already in the market. Erika had this tour already mapped out which was an incredible time saver for us. We then went back to our house and determined our price point and signed our listing agreement. At this point we put Erika in charge. We were not fans of the open house concept, but Erika convinced us that was the way to go. Erika scheduled three open houses during our listing time frame and, interesting enough, our buyer was at the first open house. Erika was right all along!! Bottom line is we truly feel we would not have sold our house as quickly as we did without Erikas support. Erika knows our neighborhood and is a true Real Estate Professional. We wouldnt take the time to write this if we didnt feel we chose the cream of the crop in Real Estate Professionals. When the time comes, we hope you give Erika a chance. She will not disappoint. Steve and Stephanie Isaacs
    Being first time home buyer's - this whole process was extremely scary for my boyfriend and me. Within the first five minutes of meeting with Erika, we knew she was the realtor for us! She was patient, understanding, and knowledgeable and guided us through the entire process with ease. Before we even discussed the type of home we were looking for, she went through the entire home buying process including each page of the Purchase Agreement, so we knew EXACTLY what to expect as well as understand each piece, so we can make an educated decision. Not many realtors take the time or even care enough to do this, which is why we instantly fell in love with her! There were quite a few hiccups on the other end from the Seller's Agent, and Erika caught every single mistake and fixed it IMMEDIATELY. I swear it was because of her that we closed on our home almost a week early. She has incredible working relationships with her vendors (geological and home inspectors) and an even greater one with our lender whom she recommended to us. She was able to get us second opinions and get all reports back almost instantly. Everyone she recommended to us was amazing and worked quickly as well as other members of her team who would step in to help move the paperwork along. She knows the market well and her experience definitely shows in the professionalism and knowledge she has shown us. She will answer any question you have, no matter how many times you ask it, and at any time of the day. There were many times we would speak to her in the early hours of the morning or late in the evening and she would get back to us quickly! There are not enough words to describe her patience with us, as we kept going back and forth throughout the entire home buying process. She was always very kind and available to provide insight and guidance. We could not have picked a better realtor and will continue to work with her in the future and we have 110% trust and confidence in her. Without her, we would not be in our dream home! Kim and Oliver - Corona
    ALLEN & LUCY NEWTON Jurupa Valley LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FOR ERIKA ORR August 3, 2018 Well, its been an entire year since we bought our home and weve been meaning to send this recognition letter to our wonderful Realtor but time got away too quickly. Its never too late tho so we would like to express our gratitude even though its been a year. What can we say about Erika? We were apprehensive about starting the search for our forever home, after having bad experiences house hunting in the past. Instead of dealing with a realtor that wouldnt listen to our needs and wants for a house, we started looking for houses on our own. We went to an open house that Erika was hosting and even though this House was not a fit for what we were looking for, Erika took the time to LISTEN to our wants, needs, and financial restrictions. We felt comfortable with her and decided to have her help us. Im sure with the advent of the internet, it has caused realtors a lot of craziness. I know that we had to have come close to driving her crazy. If we found a home on line, whether it was on Zillow or for sale by owner, she would meet us there or go check it out herself. After a few months, she found us the perfect house that was in our budget! Her expertise during the purchase was invaluable. There were a couple of touch and go moments where we almost fell out of escrow. At these times she proved to us that she was more concerned about us than making a commission. She put our interest before her paycheck. That integrity is rare. Due to her diligence the house closed escrow on time. Erika also has different lenders that are very willing to work with her clients. She introduced us to Ryan at guaranteedrate.com. Ryan is a first rate, professional. His crew jumped through hoops to get the fast escrow the sellers demanded. Even more important than all of the pre-purchase and purchase work she put in was the after purchase assistance she provided. We were given choices on which home warranty plan to use, the company we chose was a large company. One week after we moved in the water heater quit working and the warranty company sent out a plumber. The warranty company notified us that the heater wasnt covered for a technical reason. We also had a problem with a shower valve and ended up hiring our own plumber to fix these issues. Erika, using her resources, made sure we were reimbursed. This after sales help put almost $1,300 back into our bank account. Sorry for writing a book, but Erika has earned each and every one of these accolades and we wanted to express our appreciation and gratitude. THANK YOU ERIKA!!!! Sincerely, Allen & Lucy
