Eric MacDonald is a seasoned real estate broker with 12 years of experience in the real estate industry and he has a background in sales and marketing. He believes that providing great client services goes well beyond simply showing homes and managing transaction paperwork, and skillfully helps clients identify and tackle each step they must take to receive top dollar for their home or negotiate for a home they love. 

“From the first moment that I walk into your home, I am looking for ways to make it as saleable as possible,” says Eric. “I identify potential issues and help you prioritize home improvements that will increase your equity position, and know first-hand that improvements, repairs, decluttering and staging are critical to getting as much money for your home as possible.” 

Eric began his real estate career in 2007 at the height of the economic recession and says the challenging market was a blessing in disguise because it taught him how to work through challenges that could block a sale with distressed properties. “I started working in real estate when there was an excess of inventory, foreclosures, and short sales,” says Eric. “I became an expert at navigating my clients through difficult circumstances, keeping the deal together for a house that had issues.” 

Eric is driven by the relationships he’s built and the opportunity to help family, friends, and their trusted referrals. He says that means listening to clients’ needs first and then helping them consider all options – even if it means that right now may not be the best time to buy or sell. “I enjoy advocating for people in our community and helping them reach their goals to achieve more than they thought possible,” says Eric. “It’s important to have a skilled realtor in your corner, going above and beyond to get you what you want.”

Eric was born in Clark County and is a longtime resident of Washougal. He joined Columbia River Realty in 2015 because he was excited to be part of a growing brokerage in his hometown community. In his free time, Eric enjoys spending time with his family and dogs, staying healthy, snowboarding, and relaxing at the beach.
