Erik Flexner
Real Estate Representative

DRE License: #01352476
Coldwell Banker’s Broker License: #00616212

Erik Flexner is a residential real estate sales expert who knows what it takes to maximize the value of buying, selling a Property or building a Property project.

Erik is the founder of The Flexner Group. In 2004, he created his Property sales system which has resulted in the sale or leasing of over 200 Properties. The secret to The Flexner Group’s success lies in its innovative networking and marketing strategies.

Erik’s clients have been extremely successful in this softer market. One client holds the record for the highest priced dollar per square foot sale in his zip code (over $800/sf). Another client sold his property for $100,000 more than the asking price on the very first day. Success oriented clients seek Erik’s help because he is a skilled negotiator, innovative marketer and extremely well connected.

Erik and his team are also hired by developers to advise, market and sell new condominium projects and conversions. They are currently nearing the final sales phase of a 45 unit conversion project in the San Fernando Valley.
Prior to beginning his career as a real estate broker, Erik owned his own automobile wholesale business in Japan. He was the #1 exporter among all Americans. At one point he ordered more shipments from Northern Japan than all of Toyota.

Erik was born in Israel to a Danish mother and American father. He has lived on four continents and speaks six languages. Early experiences on an Israeli Kibbutz and later in Israeli paramilitary training has taught Erik to think outside of the box. Other highlights include working in the U.S. Congress, jogging with President Clinton, attending the Kyoto Summit, “the longest commute” (ask him why), dancing as an extra for the Khirov Ballet, performing Brazilian dance at the Ford Ampitheater, The Kodak Theatre and the L.A. Theatre Center and founding one of the most successful Japanese networking organizations on the west coast.
