Eric and Sharla met at IBM Learning Services in 1995 and they’ve been working together ever since. They relocated to Scottsdale, AZ then Chicago, IL before moving back to Minnesota where they started their family. After 17 successful years in corporate America, the demands of business travel lost out to the joys of family life and Eric and Sharla launched Stafford Family Realtors® in 2004.
They quickly became an established team, known for their integrity and commitment to excellence, and recognized as one of the top teams in all of Coldwell Banker.
Eric and Sharla provide concierge-level real estate services throughout the Twin Cities specializing in the Lake Minnetonka and West Metro communities. Careful listening, in-depth market knowledge and a client-first approach deliver proven results for their clients.
As members of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, Eric and Sharla provide world class marketing solutions for their clients. They meet weekly with the Global Luxury team of agents to successfully source and sell properties for their clients.
Relationships are what these two value most. They work in close partnership and strong communication with their clients throughout the transaction, but the relationship doesn’t end at the closing table. Eric and Sharla become an indispensable resource for everything from handymen to hair stylists. Clients confer with them on remodeling projects and good day care options. And their annual client events? They become much-loved family traditions.
Home means so many things to different people . . . For Eric and Sharla, home is where they enjoy good meals and long talks around the kitchen table, it’s where they watch the big screen tv and cheer for their favorite team. It’s where dozens of shoes pile up by the front door when all the kids are hanging out at their house. Home is summer nights on the deck, endless rounds of soccer in the yard, bonfires and s’mores by the firepit and an occasional long walk under the stars at night.
Home is where you begin and end your day. It’s your home but it is so much more. If you are considering a move, partner with Eric and Sharla, they truly understand the value of home.
