About Me

R. Eric Axelson was born and raised in Burlington County, N.J. He has resided in the Haddonfield, N.J., area on and off for more than 19 years, although he also spent time as a resident of Israel, Philadelphia, Iowa and Los Angeles. He is an avid traveler and loves global language and culture, a perfect fit with the worldwide footprint of the Sotheby's International Realty brand.

Eric's professional experience is centered on management, leadership 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 clients 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 historic, architecturally significant and luxury properties throughout the Philadelphia region, including the southern part of New 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, design, history, reading and the great outdoors. He enjoys caving (spelunking), hiking and kayaking and once went cold-water, open-sea kayaking off the coast of Rhode Island in an attempt to seal-watch.

Animals and wildlife are an important part of Eric's life. Specifically, he rescues Saint Bernards. He currently has a four-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.”
