Eric Reou has over six years of real estate, lending industry and graphic design experience, excelling at a variety of roles before pursuing a full-time career as a Realtor© with NextHome Victors. He brings a deep understanding of the real estate transaction process - from initial meeting to the closing table - and strives to make sure that each is as smooth as possible!
Eric has worked as a loan officer handling traditional and non-traditional loan products, as well as a licensed Transaction Coordinator for a large local real estate team. Working on hundreds of transactions over the years, Eric has seen it all – yet knows that each transaction is unique and how important it is to his clients. And Eric’s flair for graphic artistry is perfectly suited to helping get his listings noticed, and most importantly – SOLD! Put Eric’s experience and negotiating skills to work for you, whether buying, selling or investing.
A Washtenaw County resident since 2010, Eric quickly fell in love with the community and people. When not on the disc golf course or at the dog park with his boxer Brody, he can be found in his painting studio or exploring the various restaurants in the area. He is always on look out for a new best kept local secret.
I find the greatest pleasure helping others to succeed and the real estate industry has provided many unique opportunities that have allow me to follow my passion.
As a licensed REALTOR® since 1997, I have helped families from all walks of like sell their homes and purchase their Next Home. Some have moved across town; others, across the country. What I enjoy most is connecting the dots during the home selling and buying process by discovering what is most important for the home buyer/seller, connecting them to the reputable service providers that will help close the transaction quickly and properly, and making sure they have secured a professional moving company for the move to their Next Home.
As a lifelong resident of South Eastern Michigan, I’m proud to serve the communities that have supported me and my family and I look forward to helping you find your Next Home. If you are active on social media, connect with me on Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram!
