Licensed Real Estate Salesperson
Bedford Stuyvesant Office

Erica comes to the table knowing and loving New York City. Her family settled in New York in the early 1900s, eventually spreading out to all five boroughs. Erica grew up in Manhattan and Boston and made the move back east to Brooklyn in 2012 after a hiatus in the Bay Area. She quickly became a Brooklyn expert who knows the local market and its neighborhoods – which are on the rise, and which are stagnant – along with the plusses and the minuses of each.

Her background as a working musician who also managed and booked countless tours has imbued her with a flair for problem-solving and excellent negotiation skills. Erica lives in Greenpoint, and in her spare time can be found seeing and playing live music; doing her best to amuse Sophie and Moki, two of the most discerning dogs in the borough and savoring the latest vegetarian cuisine in Bedford Stuyvesant.


“Erica is phenomenal. She is super responsive, very easy to work with and has a wealth of information about the Brooklyn market. We were first-time home buyers going down a rabbit hole searching on our own. We're thrilled that we found Erica to guide us through the whole process! When we first approached her, she replied immediately and agreed to meet us the very next day. She helped us get pre-approved by connecting us with an excellent mortgage broker. She then discussed with us in detail what we were looking for and took us to see several properties over a period of a month or so before we found the one that just felt like home – we fell in love with it immediately! Erica did a fantastic job negotiating to get our offer accepted below the asking price (and in a multiple bid situation!). We couldn't be happier in our new home - should we ever decide to move again she'd be the first person we'd call.”

“To put it simply, Erica Liss is amazing. My nickname for her was "get it done Woman". Erica is attentive without being pushy, quick with the right answer to your question, but just as quick to say she'll get right back to you if she doesn't have the right answer. She is no nonsense and all business. You feel every step of the way that she has your back and she is consistently on time! If I asked for comps, they were in my email in minutes. When I wanted to back out of a deal at the last minute because of a gut change of heart, she backed me without question and we kept right at it until the perfect apartment was found (in record time no less). I will use Erica every time and highly recommend that you do too!” - Lawson H.

"Erica was wonderful. She was of the most responsive agents I contacted, right up front, and she only got better the more I worked with her.

She is very low-key / no pressure, but had arranged for me to see a few other units beyond the one I'd had in mind - all within the compressed timeframe I told her I had. She didn't oversell the apartments she showed me, letting them speak for themselves - and the third one was the charm.

I was really excited about the apartment and on a compressed timeframe (as I had to travel a day later) so she did everything she could to take the apartment off the market and get me approved. It happened the same day, and by noon the next day I was signing the lease.

That's not all. I hadn't taken measurements, so Erica met me at the apartment (AFTER I'd already signed the lease) with a measuring tape in hand, helping me notate the minor repairs I might wish to request from the landlord.

She's personable, knows the market, and is incredibly helpful. I really cannot recommend her highly enough.” – Jessica, Naked Apartments Customer Review

"Erica was a great broker to work with. She was very responsive, and helped us through what turned out to be a very easy process. I think it was so easy because she was so helpful -- she responded to all of my inquiries immediately, moved her schedule around to accommodate us, and got us the apartment we loved. I fully recommend using her to help end your apartment search." – Jesse, Naked Apartments Customer Review
