"We just wanted to write a short note to let you know what a great experience we had with Century 21 Commonwealth's agent, Erik Hook. Erik assisted us in the purchase of a single family home in Somerville MA and from the first moment we met him to the signing of the papers at closing, he was immensely professional, friendly, and attentive to our needs. Erik never made us feel like we were being "sold." On the contrary, he always dealt with us in a warm, direct, authentic manner. He made the entire homebuying process much less stressful (for us, that is -- Erik obviously worked very hard!) than it might have been. Over the past four years we have worked with four different realtors and Erik was by far the best. If we needed another real estate professional in the Boston area, we would not consider working with anyone else." Sincerely, Jon and Kim Somerville MA 02143
Erik Hook is one of the best realty brokers whom we ever met. During our house hunting experience, we dealt with about 5 other brokers. None of those 5 had the same degree of attentiveness, focus, helpfulness and responsiveness to our phone calls, emails and questions. Erik was always friendly and helpful, and met with us at the last minute to look at the basement following an evening of heavy rain. Erik always met us with a smile, and was encouraging and reassuring during the arduous bank process when the underwriter kept wanting additional paperwork and documentation. If we ever decide to buy another house, we will definitely use Erik Hook. We highly recommend him to all. Vera and Bob
Erik worked with us on both the selling and buying side. We sold our previous home quickly, with multiple offers for over our asking price in the first week, and we bought a new home while it was being built, and even with all the blue prints, construction details and extra paperwork involved, Erik stayed on top of things and kept us informed and most importantly, sane! I hope we're not moving again any time soon, but if we were, I'd contact Erik immediately! Phil W. Somerville MA
Erik Hook is a fantastic buyer's agent, especially if you are a first time buyer. I have worked with him twice, and would certainly do it again if I need a realtor in the future. Erik was my buyer's agent when I nearly purchased a home about four years ago. After Erik educated me on the home buying process and spent countless hours touring properties with me, I decided to walk away from the condo we had under contract, and wait a few years until I could afford something I would be happy with long term. I was young and impressionable, had no idea what I was doing, and could have easily been swayed to pull the trigger if Erik influenced me to do so. Erik never put any pressure on me, and encouraged me to do what I felt would make me happy. Despite spending all of this time and never seeing a commission, Erik had the integrity to put my best interest ahead of his paycheck. That's something you don't see a lot of these days. His integrity is the reason I didn't even think about hiring anyone else the next time around, when I purchased a home a little over a year ago with Erik's help. I will use him again in the future, and I will confidently recommend him to family and friends. John P. Somerville MA
Erik is awesome. He is extremely professional and courteous. He doesn't push for a decision that will benefit him but lets you take your time to think about things and how it will be best for you. I have used Erik to sell this property, buy another property, and he is currently selling a third property for me.

Erik went the extra mile to find a home for us. Even though he is in Somerville he took us to many areas outside and inside Boston to find exactly the right fit. We had a lot of requirements that made this challenging. Erik was able to separate the wheat from the chaff very quickly which made the process easy and painless.
