Testimonials


In business as in life, the two values I most appreciate are honesty and reliability. Eric is so exceptional at these two things, that I now can call him a friend as well as my realtor. He was never difficult to reach, always there when I needed him (even took my dog out while I worked long hours), professional, and helped us sell our house (in five days) and two days later get the house I’d wanted for months. Great experience, great guy.   – Dr. Natasha Hindman

Eric sold my house!! Something that two other realtors could not do!  He also sold it fast!  Extremely knowledgeable, high energy, and a non- stop work ethic! – Nicole Eaches McGowan

Selling and buying at the same time can be daunting. Eric did a great job of keeping it all together! He was always available and answered every question. Couldn’t imagine going through this process with any other realtor!   – Eric D’Antonio

Mr. McKenna truly lives up to his word as “Your Personal Realtor.” Being new to the world of real estate, I was a little naive and hesitant on where to turn for assistance in buying my first home. Due to his high reputation and notable presence in the Western Pennsylvania home market, I decided to call Eric for guidance. I can most certainly say I do not regret that decision. From day one, Eric was there fighting for me making sure that no questions were left unanswered. He went above and beyond in making sure my first home buying experience went as smooth as could be. Eric’s accessibility and responsiveness is what really made him stand out from the rest of the pack. Not once I ever felt left out of the loop on any information that I was seeking. With Eric being one phone call away, it really put my mind at ease during the entire process. With his knowledge and expertise, Eric closed my deal in one month! If you are looking to buy or sell a home, Eric is most certainly your guy. I would not recommend anybody else. His diligence, professionalism, and honesty is what really makes his personal touch unlike no other. Thanks Again Eric! – Mario Sciarrino

From start to finish Eric is your guy. He sold my house in 2 and 1/2 months, and we got what we wanted. Thanks again Eric! – Jonathan Fragapane

Thank you for honesty, answering questions and not giving a line of bull to just get a sale. You invested the time to find out what we wanted in a home, what was most important to help us make the best decision. House hunting is not a walk in the park there is a lot of moving pieces behind the scene that we the buyer don’t see. Thanks for keeping it all together. Hope to see you when we get moved in. We recommend you highly as a realtor, but you are more than that you are an outstanding person, father, husband, friend and musician! CALLERIC,com !!  – Jan Litman

Eric is a pleasure to work with!! He is calming in what can sometimes be a stressful time. He knows his stuff and gets it done. I would recommend him to anyone looking for the best!  – Mandy Chieffe Bolden

My husband and I just bought our first home, and we have Eric to thank for such an amazing process! We were referred to him by a mutual friend and I’m so grateful. He was nothing but professional, kind, attentive and involved throughout the entire journey, and I feel very lucky that we got to work with him.  I know that the experience we had was because of Eric’s expertise and dedication.   You can tell that he really LOVES his job, and he is excellent at what he does.  We’re so thankful for Eric, and we are proud to call him our Personal Realtor!  – Christina  Wawrzyniakowski

First of all thank you Eric. This was the BEST experience I’ve ever had when it comes to buying a home. You were more than just an agent to me and my family and left us feeling completely satisfied and genuinely happy and confident in our new home purchase.   This wasn’t my first home purchase so I can honestly say that Eric is an incredible Realtor who knows his stuff and made this momentous moment in our life so painless. I gladly look forward to working with him again and referring him to everyone I know.   On that note, if you’re looking to buy or sell a home I couldn’t give a higher recommendation for a realtor then Eric McKenna. He went above and beyond and was so much more than I could have hope for. Thank you!!   – Larry Ervin

Eric, Thank You so much for all that you did to help sell my house and arranging all the fixes we needed to do.  It was great knowing I had someone I could trust helping me through this process.  Selling my house was so emotional. I loved my house and all of my kids memories are with that house.  Thank you again – so much – for EVERYTHING.  If we ever move back to Pittsburgh, I’ll definitely call you!  – Colleen Talton

Eric did a great job selling our home. He kept my house very active with social media and the contacts he had within the other real estate agencies. He was tremendous in helping us with a situation after firing the worst agent in the world. He gave us reassurance, priced us where we should be, answered every question without hesitation, and actually went after finding us a buyer. We had all but given up until Eric came into our world….sold in 5 days!!  – Tracy & David Gyr

I first heard of Eric through his radio ad on WJAS. His dynamic personality along with his knowledge of real estate and his enthusiasm about my home I selected him to be my listing agent. Eric’s marketing skills included many photos, a high quality video that was on YouTube, and internet sites such as Zillow and Facebook. Eric presented an offer that was successfully counter-offered within the first week of the listing. The sale closed about seven weeks later. This transaction went well and I am happy with the result.  –  Steven Gabbert

If you’re selling a house, give Eric a call for sure! Between social media ads, open houses and his awesome radio show, he makes selling your house easy. He’s with you every step of the way, with calmness and professionalism that sets your mind at ease. Choosing Eric as our Realtor was one of the best decisions we ever made.  –  Megan & Jim Emmons

Great job!  I would choose Eric McKenna as my Realtor for any future real estate transactions without hesitation. – Ed Miller

We can’t thank Eric enough for all the work he put in with us while searching for our home. Saying he went above and beyond doesn’t do his effort justice. He listened, he always had a suggestion, was available seemingly 24/7 to answer any of my late night emails or texts, and made what could have been a stressful search so much easier. We were fortunate to have him as an agent and happy to call him a friend.  – Dave Grimm

Eric was a pleasure from the very first second I met and started working with him. From the start, he was both extremely friendly and professional; and I knew I had found the right realtor. His knowledge of houses, markets, and the entire home buying process was invaluable to a first time buyer. Eric would routinely respond to any questions I had via email or text message in minutes. I appreciated his honesty more than anything, as it was clear he wasn’t simply interested in making a sale – but truly interested in finding me exactly what I wanted at a fair price. He made what could have been a potentially stressful process easy and fun, and I couldn’t be happier with the house that he helped me find!  – Brad Hess

Eric made my first time home buying experience an absolute breeze. Any time I had a question or was looking for more information, Eric quickly responded with answers. While viewing homes, he was extremely knowledgeable, and from the beginning, was always upfront and honest. I would easily recommend Eric to anyone in need of a realtor!   – Mitch Barr

Eric has been a personal friend of mine since junior high, so when I needed someone to list my house, I wanted to give him the opportunity. My house was a log home on a secluded street, so it was a niche market for just the right buyer. Eric was persistent and thorough. Through a number of open houses, Hanna receptions, and other marketing, we attracted a buyer that loves the house. I was very pleased with the support that Eric provided in the form of frequent updates, encouragement, explanations, etc. Eric is continuously developing new avenues and approaches for his buyers and sellers. Eric is not only a friend, but has proven to be an outstanding agent that I will definitely seek advise from in future endeavors. – William McCutcheon

Eric was great to work with. As a first time home buyer, I wouldn’t have wanted to work with anybody else. He was a huge help and was able to guide us through this process and make it as simple as possible. He was available at all times of day and got back to us with answers instantly. Eric got us exactly what we needed and didn’t pressure us into anything. – Ian Edward Miller

There aren’t enough words to express how much we appreciated Eric during the process of the move! He handled every snag and twist and turn that came at us with ease. He was always willing to help with any question we had and always gave honest and helpful advice. Couldn’t ask for a better realtor!  – Erica & Roger DiFrangia

Eric is on the ball with problems, solutions, and suggestions. I feel like he truly cared throughout the process and gave sound advice. I worry a bit and like details, and Eric understood that I was type A and needed reassurance.   – Genevieve Marie Kegley

Thank you sooo much Eric McKenna.  Buying a house can be nerve wracking and difficult beyond words. You were such an amazing help showing us homes that met our personal needs. You were knowledgeable about everything. And I really mean everything. You offered so much great advice and I never felt pressured or silly about asking a question. You made this such a great personal experience and never made us feel like this was just another sale. To anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home, Eric is the man. If I wasn’t so happy with my new home, I’d buy another one just to work with him again!!!   Thank you for being such a great realtor and an amazing person to know.  – Jessica Ervin

If you are looking for someone who will take the stress out of buying or selling a home and actually make the process fun, Eric does this effortlessly. I am super impressed with his commitment to going above and beyond for his clients and wow does he know marketing. Don’t think- just call Eric! – Susan Radage

So, my wife and I decide to sell our home and start the process of looking for a new home.   Both my wife and I had heard Eric’s radio advertisement on WJAS.  My wife also noted from Eric’s website, CallEric.com, that Eric had his own Radio show on WBVP.  Eric’s radio show was not broadcast strong enough out by our home but we actually watched an episode on his site.  We called Eric and honestly – BEST decision we could have made!  Simply put – from helping us prep for our listing to holding a great Open House to guiding us to Closing, Eric was really SUPER!  And while we may have drove him a bit crazy looking at so many homes, he was ultra patient and a heck of a lot of fun to be with!  He’s always smiling it seems!  Great guy.  Would recommend Eric to anyone.  Without hesitation!  – Clyde C. Cary

Loved working with Eric!!  Great realtor!  Made selling our house easy and enjoyable.  Thank you Eric!  Michelle Fragapane

Our potential move was a very stressful time in our lives. We hired Eric because we trust him and have known him to be a successful businessman. He worked hard at our multiple open houses and was good at following up with potential buyers and us. Thanks Eric!  – Monika Acker Duchi

Eric sold our home in less than a week; I would say his work ethic from that factor alone speaks volumes.  – Nicholas Sheleheda

Eric is such a great guy and so patient. He worked so hard for us. Whether it was 8am or 11pm, he was there to answer any question I had or to put me at ease throughout the whole process. I would recommend Eric to anyone!  – Alexis Brown

As you can read on others reviews, Eric ROCKS! He listed my house and in 48 hours had 3 offers! Signed an agreement in 3 days and we just closed today, 8/26/2016! My house is sold in 30 days. This is my first and only experience within the Real-estate world and if every agent is as professional as him, WOW!!  Eric I thank you for your patience and incredible professionalism! Job well done.  – James Snyder

My wife and I had a great experience using Eric as both our seller’s and buyer’s agent. He was always very responsive, extremely diligent, and an all around great guy to work with. Home buying can be a very stressful experience. With Eric however, we always felt like we had someone on our side, and someone who was willing to do anything for you to get the deal done. If you’re looking to buy or sell, please just start a conversation with him to ask any questions you may have. Chances are his work ethic and positive attitude will exceed what you’d expect from a great realtor, as they did for us. – Donald Crouse III

The stress of selling a home was lessened by choosing Eric! He really knows the business and is highly professional.  – Jennifer & Bryan White

Eric was amazing to work with! Extremely honest, kind, professional and all around a great guy! We would highly recommend him as a realtor.  – Christal & Nick Bell

We absolutely loved working with Eric! He was our agent for both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current home. He went above and beyond our expectations as an agent. His level of professionalism was astounding and he was always honest and frank. We wholeheartedly trusted Eric from the first night we met him. We have small children and he accommodated our family’s needs throughout both processes of selling and buying. He is an exceptional individual and stayed true to his word!  We were lucky enough to be referred to him; we will always be thankful for that, and will recommend him to anyone needing an agent going forward!  – Jessica & Bill Hertrick

Eric really cares about you being happy with the right choice for your family -above all else.   He’s very personable and honest!  – Ashley DiCicco

First let me say that Mac literally worked the sole off one of his shoes while showing me houses!! I called Mac just to see what was out there, never thinking that I would get into the kind of house I got. Mac was always there for me, answering all of my questions and helping me every step of the way. He made one of the happiest days of my life not only possible but with much ease and enjoyment. I would never think of using anyone else!!  – Lance Huber

It is very hard to find the words that express how much of a blessing having Eric McKenna as our realtor! Being a first time home buyer is very intimidating and overwhelming. From the very beginning Eric swept in and calmed my nerves. He was always very professional, answered all my phone calls and millions of questions. He had our interest in mind at all times, he allowed us to run the show but with 100% of his guidance. I highly recommend Eric if anyone needs a realtor. I promise He will make it a fun and easy going experience. – Mallori Lynn Keene

I can’t say enough good things about Eric and his dedication to selling our home. Eric comes loaded with sales experience that sets him apart from the rest. Many external factors made our sales environment challenging, but Eric stayed positive and pushed through it. He got us a great price for our home and always made us feel that he was in our corner. Hire with confidence!  – Jeremy Avoli

I can’t begin to describe what a blessing it was to have Eric as our Realtor.  He truly got to know us as a family to help us find a home that we could enjoy and continue to grow into for years to come. He was always honest and gave us a real opinion. Eric made an extremely stressful process go so smoothly even when there were bumps in the road. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.  He is a truly genuine person and a gem of a Realtor!  – Erin Mackey Grimm

After sifting through many Realtor profiles on the web as well as researching Pittsburgh area real estate companies, I could not be more happy with my selection of Realtor Eric McKenna with Howard Hanna Real Estate.  Eric’s smiling, friendly disposition is only matched by his dedication to really servicing his clients.  Every question I had, every transaction challenge we faced, Eric responded quickly, professionally and most importantly for me – in a very positive manner.  He told me he likes to make the real estate process easy as well as a bit fun.  And Eric does just that!  Do yourself a favor and choose Eric as your Realtor.  You won’t regret it.   – Linda Wightman

Eric has the right amount of energy, professionalism, and valuable experience that any seller would want in a Realtor. Eric gets the job done with extremely satisfying results. – Rob Yurkovich

For me, it’s pretty simple.  I want a Realtor who speaks frankly, does what he says and understands what the word ‘service’ is.  Mac is all that and more.  He’s no nonsense yet he’s still a fun guy to be around and do business with.  Don’t know how he does it but he’s ALWAYS smiling!  If you want an agent who gives it his all and will be your biggest advocate in the process of selling your home – Mac is absolutely the right man for the job.  I’d hire him again in a second.  – Jarvis Williams

My wife and I, we met Eric kind of randomly while visiting our first ever house. He was the Realtor for the seller. We didn’t like the house but we did like him! It immediately clicks between him and us and he offered to help us find a home. This was our first house so we had a lot of questions and, through the whole process he was there, diligent, kind and informative. He even “found” a guy to repair some electric fuses that the seller refused to correct for us.  The day we closed on the house, we had a plumbing issue that could have postponed the deal and he found someone qualified in 30 min and saved the day!  Always smiling, ready to help and genuinely interested in finding your dream home, Eric is the kind of guy you wish existed in every service profession. Unfortunately, we won’t need him for a while now that we are settled but I definitely recommend Eric if you are house hunting!  Extremely fun and knowledgeable with no BS! My kinda guy!!  – Guillaume Besson

Mac McKenna says he really loves being a Realtor, he is NOT kidding!  What my husband and I found even more refreshing was he took the time to get to know us a bit and really understand what our circumstances were regarding our house hunting.  We never felt any pressure in any way from Mac.  He said that the whole thing was going to be on our timetable and he was absolutely true to his word. We also like the fact that he is such a family man. His love and care for his children is so strong and genuine.  It speaks a lot to his character and that meant a lot to us as well!   Would my husband and I use Mac again?  YES we would!  Would we recommend Mac to our family and friends and anyone in need of a Super Realtor?  YES we would!  And YOU should too!!  – Marcy Zolotow

I really wish I could give more than 5 stars!!! If anyone needs a realtor, please consider using Eric McKenna. His professionalism and responsiveness are top notch. He took the time to take many beautiful pictures of our house for the website and even held a Saturday Open House. I am very impressed with his sales and marketing ability and very happy we selected him as our realtor. Selling a house can be very stressful and Eric made the process very easy and quick for our family. What a great guy and great friend. Thank you Eric!   – Nicole Clarke

I probably cannot express the words that show how much I recommend Eric McKenna as a Realtor.  If you are buying or selling – do yourself a favor – Call Eric!  My house was listed, showed, and sold within 3 weeks! And our closing was so smooth.  Eric McKenna went out of his way to make everything as easy as he could for us.  He stopped by often, talked us through everything, and he personally made our selling experience a dream.   We are so thankful for his professionalism, experience, but most of all his friendship.  Eric made this easy. – Jani Lampus

If you want a real estate agent who will take care of every important detail in selling your home, then Eric McKenna is your person. Eric is knowledgeable, reliable, enthusiastic and very easy to deal with. He responds to all questions (text or e-mail) immediately and we never had any concerns with Eric representing us. Aside from being an outstanding agent, he’s also a great photographer, which is very important when getting all the pictures of your home posted for the listing. You will not regret hiring Eric as your agent.   – Philip Clarke 

Hands down made the entire process work seamless. Was friendly, knowledgeable, and went out of his way to make sure we had what we needed when we needed it. I would 100% recommend Eric to anyone who is in need of a realtor. It was the best choice we could have made and I would make it again if I need to sell or buy in the future. I thought 2 VA loans on the same day was going to be tough but Eric and Mikki Crown at Howard Hanna made it work. Thanks again to the whole Howard Hanna team!   – James Helsel

THANK YOU for everything you have done for us, Eric!!  I am so happy that on that fateful night when I was bombarded by messages from realtors, we picked you! I would recommend you to anyone as an amazing, friendly, honest realtor in a heartbeat!   – Heather Helsel

20150708_134543-3I would like to publicly state that Eric McKenna has conducted our business affairs together with honesty and integrity.  It gives me a good outlook on life when there are still people in business today that conduct their personal and business affairs with honesty and integrity.  Eric is a man of character and I am proud to have him as a business associate and more importantly, I’m proud to call him a friend.  – Thomas Michael Anderson

I hired Eric McKenna as my Realtor to assist me with a complex property sale.  Throughout the twists and turns of the transaction, Eric worked diligently on my behalf.  He always kept me informed every step of the way.  He proved to me that his first priority is his clients, not his commission.  His advice and assistance were invaluable as together we solved my real estate problem.   I would, and do, recommend Eric to everyone in need of a Realtor.  He’s exceptional!     – Cynthia Tuszynski

We have been clients of Eric’s on multiple occasions and for over a decade.  We have also gotten the opportunity to know the man personally. He has always gone above and beyond for us.

Eric was fantastic to work with. He worked extremely hard for us and got our home sold so we could be in our dream home. I highly recommend him!  – Nancy Avoli

There are good agents out there. I’ve dealt with a few over the years.   But if you want a GREAT agent who is honest, hard working and provides exceptional service – you want Eric McKenna! He makes the experience worry free and he won’t let you down!   – Mandy Ward

I’ve known Eric for many, many years and have conducted business with Eric for what seems like  – forever.  He is a man of quality. A man who’s word is his bond. A man who I’m proud to know. When it was time to sell my home – there could be no one else but Eric McKenna as my Realtor.  His marketing, both traditional and through online social media, puts him in a class by himself.  Through my business, Lou Gold Tree Service, I’ve had the pleasure of working with many of Eric’s clients he has referred to me.  These clients rave to me about their experience of using Eric as their Realtor.  If you truly want – The Best Realtor in Southwestern PA – you only have ONE choice. Truly.  And that’s Eric McKenna.  And remember – Eric’s “Your Personal Realtor!”  – Louis Gold

I have known and conducted business with Eric McKenna for over a decade. I have always found Eric to be forthright, honest and totally dedicated to superior customer service.   – Sean McCarthy

Typically, I do not write or get involved in testimonials.  However when it comes to Mr. McKenna, I gladly make an exception.  My interaction with Mac goes back to 2004.  Since that time, we have worked together, on a professional basis, in many areas.  We have also worked together on projects involving some very demanding clients.  Clients whoseIMG_0209.2015-06-28_191450 fame and stature can intimidate even the most seasoned of business professionals.  I can honestly say working with Mac, in these types of challenging environments, was a pleasure.  He always remained cool under pressure and treated everyone involved with genuine kindness and concern.  Regardless of the stature, fame or nature of the client, Mac brought his skills to the table.  He was consistently – excellent.  Because of the quality of his work and the way he went about his work, the success of our joint projects have made a lasting impression on so many people.  And I’d be remiss not to mention the importance Mac always placed on charity and doing whatever he could to give back.  It was always very apparent to all involved that blending good business and charity is very important to him.  In a world where the word ‘character’ seems to mean less and less every day, Mac stands out among the fray.  He receives my strongest recommendation.   – Peter U. Wells

You won’t find a better person to work with than Eric McKenna. He’s as stand-up as they come and I highly recommend you make him your go-to guy for acquiring real estate. You’ll have a life-long friend and a superbly talented asset in the field!   – Chad Dyer

From 2003 to 2009 I worked together with Eric McKenna almost daily.  I can honestly say his drive to see projects through to a successful outcome coupled with his positive and forward thinking approach made our professional relationship nothing short of outstanding.  And he’s a pretty darn nice guy as well!  Always smiling!  Eric’s always the coolest cat in the room!   – Steve Bennett

Eric really took great care of me. He worked hard, did what he said he would do and just took care of business. He simplified what is typically a complex process and I really appreciate that.   -Thomas Teeling
