Eric Wright, Salesperson
Coming from a mixed background of higher education and hands on field work, Eric has taken to all things Real Estate. Starting on the construction side and developing his passion for Real Estate, has lead Eric into property valuation and sales.
Eric was raised in Jacksonville, MD. Much of his youth, and to their dismay, the better part of his parents 40’s were spent driving to Ice World in Aberdeen, and throughout most of the Tri-State area, playing for both the Harford County Patriots and the Baltimore Stars ice hockey teams. After graduating from the St. Paul’s School in Brooklandville, MD, Eric continued his education at Towson University. In the years prior to joining Star Realty, Eric founded a REO / Foreclosure property preservation company out of Cockeysville, MD. In addition to his vast experience in the REO industry, Eric is also a knowledgeable Real Estate Appraiser, focusing much of his attention in the Harford and Baltimore County areas.
When Eric is away from his desk you will most likely find him around Towson spending time with his fiancée Erica, and their two dogs, Maddie and Oliver. And as with any story, there must be an antagonist… Eric has been (im)patiently waiting for the day the Washington Capitals take home the Stanley Cup since 1990.
