    About Eric

    Eric Fox is a native Philadelphian, brimming with energy and a passion for real estate. Eric started in real estate sales after a real estate focused, finance and accounting background.  After graduating from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA, Eric started his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers where he was on a team that concentrated on real estate related companies. In 1999, Eric started his investment path when he purchased his first investment property in Manayunk, Pennsylvania. Eric temporarily left Philadelphia in 1999 to complete his CPA, while simultaneously working for MGM Studios in Los Angeles.

    After two years of working in Southern California, Eric returned to Philadelphia to live and continue his career in real estate. He began working as an agent in early 2003. Eric has helped clients buy and sell over $300 million worth of real estate over the course of 820+ transactions.  At his former real estate agency he was ranked within the Top half of 1% since 2016.  In September 2020, he and his team joined Compass of Greater Philadelphia. This shift has opened a new door for the Eric Fox Team, along with all of the clients that they serve.

    The combination of Eric's knowledge of the real estate market, his transactional experience, as well as his general financial knowledge has proven to be a valuable asset to his clients. Furthermore, his high ethical standards, inherent people skills and passion to far surpass all expectations will prove to be a most valuable tool in helping his clients achieve their real estate goals.
