Enter The World of Eric Peterson
As Owner/Broker of Austin real estate brokerage Kopa Real Estate, Eric sees trust as the cornerstone of both his business. As a result, many who started out as clients are now long-term friends who enjoy referring their friends and family to him.
With a degree in Marketing and Finance, Eric began as a mortgage broker in 1996. Then in 2003, after finding that many of his clients were coming to him for advice on real estate as well as their loans, he obtained his real estate license and worked dual careers before becoming a realtor full time.
Growing up outside of New York City in Brewster, Eric enjoyed attending the Mets games with his dad. He is also a big Green Bay Packers fan…which is how he met his wife and business partner, Joyce. She is from Malaysia and knew nothing of football. But there she was – at Billy’s Sports Bar watching the Packers game. Eric says it was love at first sight. She has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from U.T.
