THE REAL ESTATE MOGUL & BUSINESS INSTRUCTOR & EDUCATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE
Ms. Ericka spent 11 years working onsite for builders as a new home sales counselor and then as a roving agent (a mobile sales counselor meeting buyers and agents at different communities). Throughout her journey as a new home sales counselor she built up an alliance of realtors who were eager to learn more about the new home sales process. Ms. McKnight began traveling all over the Carolina's educating realtors and builders on the new home sales process, bridging the gap between builders, realtors and the buyer and how to increase their wealth in new home sales. Upon realizing the demand for her message from her peers she decided to take a GREAT leap of faith and decided to leave new home sales, which at that time was a six figures plus salary, and follow her dream.
Ms. McKnight is a successful mother of three, entrepreneur (current Owner/CEO of ELM Realty-full service real estate company), international best selling author, visionary, life coach, and philanthropist. She continues to have remarkable success in selling and listing homes and is often admired for her entrepreneurial and forward-thinking attributes.
