Erik L.

Overlord of Leasing

Erik Linartas is the Overlord of Leasing for Golden Bee Properties. Starting off as an assistant and growing through the ranks, Erik has gained extensive knowledge on the regular rental process and the Section 8 program. Working with those two aspects of Real Estate has taught Erik that no two transactions are ever alike. Erik believes that whether you’re renting a property in West Hollywood or working with the Housing Authority to help someone who has fallen on hard times, being resourceful is key! No matter how easy you think a transaction will be, it always has its challenges. These challenges can range from helping a renter fill out an application to securing a Security Deposit from a third-party organization. Finding fast and efficient ways to overcome these challenges saves time & makes the process easier for everyone.Erik is a strong believer in the philosophy of humor. As Erma Bombeck one said, “When humor goes, there goes civilization”. Without a good sense of humor, the world seems very black and white.When Erik isn’t drinking his iced coffee in the office or out in the field, he loves spending time outdoors. This includes riding his bike through Venice and Santa Monica, hiking and gardening. When the warm weather gets too overwhelming, Erik escapes to Mammoth & Big Bear to go Snowboarding.
