R. Eric Axelson was born and raised in Burlington County, NJ. He has resided in the Haddonfield, NJ area on and off for more than 22 years, although he has also spent time as a resident of Israel, Philadelphia, Iowa and Los Angeles. He is an avid traveler and loves global language and culture. He has amassed a global network of real estate partners.
Eric's professional experience has been centered on leadership, management and contract negotiation at two financial services companies, including a division of Citigroup. He is more than comfortable working with top-level executives.
His professional skills provided an ideal segue into his real estate career, where he has experience representing clien ts in a broad range of property types, including condominiums, historic, commercial, investment, land, multi-family, new construction and more typical single-family residences. Eric is now focused on representing distinctive luxury, architecturally significant and historic properties throughout the Greater Philadelphia region and the Delaware Valley, including South Jersey. A self-described technology guru, he is very comfortable using all manner of technology to be as responsive as possible to his clients' needs.
Eric's interests outside of real estate include architecture, art, design, history, reading and the great outdoors. He enjoys caving (spelunking), hiking and kayaking. Animals and wildlife are an important part of Eric's life. Specifically, he rescues Saint Bernards. He currently has a seven-year-old Saint Bernard named Ella. She can be found keeping him company and napping around his home office.
"Yesterday I closed on 538 Moreland Rd, Huntingdon Valley. I was so thankful that Eric was the broker. He helped me every step of the way along our long road to a sale. He was professional and cooperative and I appreciated his work on this sale. This is a tough market and Eric was a good listener that also had good ideas. Just wanted to let you know it was a good job – well done. Thanks again."
