I met Eric when he was selling a house in Elbridge and was very impressed. He is reliable, responsive, easy to talk to, and most of all, he is a worker. There are so many realtors out there who seem to expect to just let you into a house for sale without doing any research, write up a contract and collect their commission. Not Eric. The first day we met, he walked us all the way around a 20 acre property to show us all the features of the land. We didn’t make an offer on the house he was selling, but we kept in touch with Eric and asked him to show us other houses when we were ready to look again. He suggested places for us to look at that we didn’t already know about. He researched places we were interested in before having us visit the property. It saved us a lot of time, and we ended up finding the perfect house for our needs. Eric was involved throughout the closing process and helped moved things along when a freak storm caused damage to the house before closing. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in Onondaga County, and would definitely retain him to sell our home if and when that time comes.
Eric was incredibly helpful from the start! Buying a new home in an area we were not fully familiar with was a little nerve-wracking, but he made it a breeze. He was able to answer my questions about cosmetics, schools, etc., while also having the expertise to answer questions pertaining to more structural / construction related things. We found a home that was perfect for us, and Eric helped us to get into it as soon as possible. We’ll definitely be using him again, should the need ever arise! Lindsey & Roger Wilcox
Working with Eric was a great experience from start to finish. He was able to sell our home quickly and was extremely helpful in picking out and negotiating our new one. And when some complications occurred in our closing process he put in a lot of extra time and effort to ensure everything kept moving along. Eric is extremely professional, knowledgeable, an excellent communicator, and works as hard as anyone I have come across in the industry. My wife and I are clients for life and would strongly recommend him to any of our family or friends.
****My Personal Favorite Testimonial*****
After doing substantial research and interviewing several real estate agents, we chose Eric Maley to list our home. It was the best choice we could ever have made.
Within 3 days of the listing and after numerous showings we had 5 strong offers. Eric is more than an excellent realtor. He is a versatile communicator, a creative and technologically-gifted photographer and an accomplished video producer, expertly using drone technology to enhance his overall marketing approach. He is amicable and patient, and he clearly and definitively explains things while answering all questions and concerns, no matter how trivial. Hard-working beyond all our expectations, he was always accessible, 24/7, and returned our phone calls and emails immediately. He never missed a deadline, and helped us to stay on top of meeting our deadlines. Drawing on his on his extensive experience and impressive track record of sales, he anticipated any potential selling problems (no matter how minor) before they arose so we could address them appropriately as we prepared to show our home. Because of his expertise the transaction from beginning to end could not have gone more smoothly. His noteworthy personal characteristics: competent, confident, detailed-oriented and assertive — but engagingly polite and patient. He is extremely knowledgeable about not only real estate per se but people. In addition, he is a devoted family man, who serves our local community in which he lives. He contributes in many ways, including as a volunteer fireman and a high school coach. He is a truly amazing guy whom we are honored to have represent us. In sum, there is no doubt in our minds that he has the sustained drive, the sharp intellect, the social skills and the focus to be successful in any field to which he chooses to apply himself. From our perspective, however, we consider ourselves very fortunate that he has remained in the real estate field. We recommend him highly and without reservation. —
Let us start out by saying that we would recommend Eric to anyone. Going in as first time home buyers, we weren’t sure what to expect. Eric was a referral from a family member initially. What we loved about him right off the bat was his honesty. He is not a “typical salesman” that is going to try to get you into the most expensive house to make his commission check – No. He cares about each and every customer of his. He listens to the needs and the wants and then based off of what you’ve told him, makes some recommendations. He’s honest. If he doesn’t like something about the house for a certain reason, he’ll tell you and we loved that. He’s also one of the most hard working people we’ve met. We would be sending him listing after listing after listing (some times until midnight!!) and he would respond right away, and make sure we had the listing time scheduled for that next day. Due to COVID-19, there are a lot of rules and regulations with realtors and what they can and cant do with their clients. My Fiance and I found a house and knew it was going to go quick so Eric got into his car and drove 30+ minutes out there (in the pouring rain) just to face time with us throughout the house. He was practically on his hands and knees under the porch in the mud showing us the beams! If that’s not dedication to your customer, I’m not sure what is. If Eric says that he’s going to get something done, he is. The work ethic, reliability and knowledge that he has is untouchable. We could not have asked for a better experience for our first home purchase and as stated earlier, we would recommend him to anyone.
Lindsay Frank and Bobby Pawlewicz – April 2020
I have had the pleasure of working with Eric as both a seller and a buyer. I had followed him on social media for a few years and decided that when it was time to sell my home in Tully, he would be the realtor to do it. He didn’t disappoint! Eric came to our initial meeting well prepared. He knew as much about our home as we did, maybe more. He understood the market, laid out different sets of data and provided us with a marketing strategy that was unique to our home. He is a straight shooter so if you’re looking for someone who isn’t going to tell you that your home needs this or that to sell, pass by him because he wants you to get the most from your investment. We took every single piece of advice he offered about the condition, staging and marketing of our home. He sold our home, with multiple offers over the asking price, on the first day. He followed through with everything he outlined in our original meeting from the marketing of the home, video/photos and drone footage, to finishing every last detail so that we could focus on our next steps. I should add that this was a sale due to divorce and Eric handled a challenging situation remarkably well. He was professional and communicated with both my ex-husband and I completely so that we were both getting the same information. Just recently, when I was ready to buy another home, Eric got one text from me and the next thing I know, I have comps to look at, information about the property and I was signing a purchase offer for a city living home of my dreams! I can’t say enough positive about his ability to represent me as a realtor. He is professional 100% of the time, flexible and accommodating and knows his business. The most important thing to me in a realtor is trust – trust with my money, trust with my interests, and trust with my personal and professional business. I would recommend him any without hesitation. Eric Maley is more than an amazing realtor that you can trust, he is a GREAT guy!

We met Eric a year ago, while looking for our dream home. But, after after seeing what was on the
market, we decided to postpone our search. When we were ready to start looking again, six months
later, we knew our guy. Eric is an absolute expert in his field. He is beyond knowledgeable about the
market, and is not afraid to be honest – which, as new home-owners, we sincerely appreciated. He was
with us every step of the way, and pushed to timely close (in 28 days!). There truly is no one better and
we are so thankful for his assistance in helping us find our beautiful home.

We didn’t know Eric before meeting with him to discuss our moving desires.
We didn’t know Eric before meeting with him to discuss our moving desires. He is very professional
and is very knowledgeable about the market in our area. He offered suggestions to improve our home
prior to listing and was aggressive with his advertising the sale of our home. As a result, our home sold
in just 8 days! We felt we got top value for our home due to his suggestions. On the purchase of our
new home, he showed us homes that were consistently similar to what we were looking for; he listened
to our “wants” and understood our “needs”. Once we found our home, Eric was extremely diligent in
negotiating the price and the terms. He truly had our best interests in mind. He was even able to
negotiate additional terms when an issue arose during our final walkthrough. His networking contacts
for inspectors, financing, attorney’s and contractors made our experience very smooth. We would
highly recommend Eric and his team!

Excellent service, professionalism, and attention to detail by Deidre.
Excellent service, professionalism, and attention to detail by Deidre. We have bought two homes from
Deidre, and couldn’t have made a better decision. We are not originally from this area, and on our first
home, we walked more houses than we excepted. She was extremely patient and really made us feel
comfortable each and every time we went out to look at a possible home. She was always flexible and
available whenever we reached out to her. This being our first home purchase, she walked us through
the purchasing process and put us into contact with ‘the best in the business’ when it came time for
mortgage applications, home inspections, and possible future repairs. When purchasing our second
home, it was second nature to call her, she had pretty much become a part of our family. Deidre always
had our best interest at heart and I would recommend her to anyone that was interested in buying or
selling a home!
Eric was a tremendous help in the purchase of our first home.

purchase a new home, especially for their first time.

If you are looking for a realtor look no further and hire Eric Maley. I am so happy we went with him.
My husband and I are very picky and frugal. Eric has been with us for 3 years trying to find the perfect
house for us. Not once did he ever try to pressure us into buying. He never made us feel bad for being
slow with our selection. He gave his honest opinion on every single house we viewed and always had
our best interests at heart. We always thought realtors were always out to make a quick buck off their
clients but that clearly isn’t the case with Eric. He will be our realtor for life and we are so grateful for
his time and expertise with the purchase of our new home!

We highly recommend Eric Maley when choosing an agent to list and sell your property! Eric is
extremely motivated and is always adapting to the changing market to best market your property. He
did everything from helping us to stage our home to checking on the house when we couldn’t be there
to ensure it was ready to be shown. Eric maintains an extensive network of professionals in the area. He
was able to leverage this to have our home spotlighted as the Home of the Week in the Syracuse
newspaper! His Open House was expertly planned out well in advance and superbly executed. We had
tried for four years to sell our house with as many different realtors. Every time it was the same great
sales pitch until we signed the contract and then nothing. Eric not only met his promises, he exceeded
them and quickly began to get actual offers! Trust Eric with your property and you won’t be

Eric worked with my husband and me for over two years to find our perfect home. He was very patient
and not pushy like other realtors can be. When looking at land for sale, knowing I was a gardener, Eric
took the time to provide me with a soil survey for the site. That is just one of many examples of Eric
going above and beyond what is expected. When we did find a home, he listed our current home and
had it sold in ONE day with multiple offers. Eric is very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable in
all aspects of real estate and really knows the area and school districts. I would definitely buy and sell
with Eric Maley again!

Eric listed and sold several houses for me. He is absolutely the best agents I have worked with in my
decade in real estate. Excellent negotiating skills, follow up and presentation. Most agents put all their
effort into convincing me to list a house with them and then take a hands off approach to actually sell
the house. Eric got the job done just as he said he would. I strongly advise anyone seeking an agent to
schedule a meeting with Eric.

Eric is very knowledgeable about all aspects of his job.
Eric is very knowledgable about all aspects of his job. He is a broker also which is very helpful. I have
seen Eric deal with a lot of different problems with ease. He takes great pride in doing a good job and
being devoted to all aspects of real estate, Nothing seems to get him upset even the most complicated
things. He is a family man with two great kids involved in there sports and community, being a
volunteer fireman for the town of Tully. He also has a lot of friends that he would do anything for
whenever he is asked. Most of his friends have been friends for many years, He has maintained a very
beautiful home in the town of Tully making a lot of the improvements himself . I have known Eric for
his entire life and would not be afraid to recommend him for any job no matter how complicated or
sell our house for way more than we ever expected in just a matter of days
Used Eric to buy my house 4 years ago. He spent a lot of time with us making sure we found the right place for us. He was able to help us find the right property with all the essentials. After spending time and effort on renovations he was able to sell our house for way more than we ever expected in just a matter of days. He is always available when needed and provides great insight. Highly recommended I wanted to take a minute to express our sincere gratitude for helping us (again) navigate an extremely difficult situation. It was very frustrating throughout, but with the help of both of you (Eric & Greg) we wouldn’t have made it without losing our s**t. It was a pleasure to work with both of you for the buying and selling process. We’re impressed with how professional you both remained throughout the process despite the buyers complete lack of respect for the process. Eric- We especially want to thank you for doing such a wonderful job of marketing and getting us such a good price. Despite all the frustration we did really well on this deal and should be set up with a nice down payment that will go a long way in our next investment.
Eric is a great real estate agent.
I had the pleasure of working with him when I sold my home and I am presently working with him to find a new home. He is thorough, knowledgeable and patient. I recommend him highly to anyone buying or selling a home.
