Eric was raised on a farm in a small town in Northern Michigan. In addition to farming, his father also worked as a machinist and his mother was a school bus driver. From an early age Eric learned the meaning of hard work. Typical summers were spent working on his Dad’s farm, then riding his pedal bike to other farms in the neighborhood to earn money. “Then if I finished in time, I would ride my bike to the lake in the evening. Work then play is the Wozniak way. I was in the best shape of my life,” says Eric. After high school, Eric attended Ferris State University earning a Bachelors of Science in Manufacturing Engineering in 2002, married his best friend Breann in 2006, earned a MBA with a concentration in Finance and Entrepreneurship from the University of Minnesota in 2012, and cherished the birth of his daughter Willa in April 2014. With over 13 years of experience in engineering and operations management at Parker Hannifin, Eric found the courage to leave corporate America and has been selling houses ever since. “I truly feel like I’ve found the career I’ve been searching for. Real Estate is the perfect blend of finance, entrepreneurship, and helping people. I love it!” Eric joined the Kerby & Cristina team in 2014.
My dream job would be… If I could go back and do one thing before Real Estate I would have enlisted in the military. I have the utmost respect for our men and women in uniform and like to think I could have been a Navy Seal Sniper, but like we said, DREAM job, not a possible job!
My first job was… Working on neighborhood farms.
When I’m not working you’ll find me… Working out, reading nonfiction, researching investments, and camping.
My favorite vacation spot is… Anywhere in the Caribbean, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Mexico – clearly making up for too many summers on the farm.
The best “unknown” restaurant I’ve been to is… Cardinal Tavern
My favorite food is… Wozniak home grown T-bone steak and Cajun shrimp pasta.
Eric is trustworthy and thorough and makes buying or selling a home less stressful, especially during these trying times of the housing shortage/pandemic conditions. Thanks, Eric!
Eric was easy to work with and always available if we had questions. We used him as our realtor for our new construction home and he was also the listing agent for our existing home. He walked us through all the offers and their unique nuances so that we could make an informed decision on what to expect. He was also wonderful in helping us through a little negotiation with our builder on our new home.
After living in our home for 38 years and having all the memories of raising our family there we knew it was time to downsize. We put our trust in Kerby/Cristina Remax while working with Eric Wozniak. The entire team was wonderful and delivered such a pleasant experience. We are not surprised because that is what professionals do best. Thank you K/C.
