Erica does not just know the process by helping others, but also from engaging in it herself. From a neglected townhome in Mid-Town, to a multi-unit apartment buildings, Erica has always been active in the process of buying, selling, and renovating. Erica is a licensed REALTOR® in the state of Pennsylvania, and has earned numerous awards for business and personal excellence and achievement.
Erica was born in the state of Pennsylvania and raised for the first part of her life in West Lawn, PA before moving with her family to Harrisburg, PA immediately after graduating from Wilson Senior High School. In Harrisburg, she would walk the city streets longingly at dilapidated houses with dreams of fixing them up. She finally realized that dream 5 years later and the founding of Erica Rawls Companies. Prior to her career in real estate, Erica attended Virginia Tech were she received a scholarship to play basketball. After transferring to Penn State she majored in Accounting where she obtained her BS in Professional Accountancy. Immediately after graduating she was employed by one of the Big Five accounting firms PricewaterhouseCoopers where she concentrated in tax accounting. It was there she developed training and professional skills to start a business. She also was employed with Ahold, a retail and parent company of such grocery chains as Giant Foods, Stop & Shop, Tops, and Peapod to name a few. Ahold allowed her the opportunity to gain international experience. As an internal auditor she frequently visited headquarters (Urich, Switzerland) to complete audits.
Erica's admiration of property began at an early age. While her dreams of working in real estate took a short detour to the accounting and retail industries; her road has always pointed here, to Erica Rawls Companies.
Erica eventually began buying homes and fixing them up. It was her first purchase, a dilapidated home in Midtown, that would really start Erica on the path to success in real estate.
Her real estate agent at that time noticed the qualities in Erica that have made her such a success ever since. He encouraged her to pursue her real estate license, and the rest is history. Before that, there were other forays for Erica. Out of high school, she received a basketball scholarship to play Division I girls basketball. These experiences, and more, lend themselves to the composite person Erica has become, and to the client-focused, team approach she has fostered at Erica Rawls Companies.
