Mary ShanksEric Hawn
Sales Representative

Professionalism, integrity and a drive for success are what guides Eric in life, and today towards an exciting career in real estate. Throughout his past, Eric has shown an opportunistic and creative eye, and a true zest for life. Combined with his passion for people, he couldn’t have found a better alignment for his launch as a realtor, than with the industry leading, Loretta Phinney Group.

Native to Clarkson/Lorne Park of Mississauga, Eric now resides in beautiful Oakville where he has fallen in love with the community. As an Oakville resident for 10 years, he has developed an intimate knowledge of, and passion for the Halton region.

Eric is a dreamer, and his desire to help buyers and sellers achieve their dreams in real estate is what drives him everyday. His background in marketing and customer focused industries serves him perfectly for the vision, commitment and accountability demanded by today’s real estate consumer.

A graduate from Sheridan College with an Advanced Diploma in Business Marketing, Eric then entered the hospitality industry where he developed lifelong relationships both professionally and personally. His network continued to blossom, and Eric today prides himself on his desire to actively engage with his community. In 2015, he had the opportunity to assist the international launch of the largest online food ordering company in the United States, DoorDash, here in Toronto, which recently went public for Billions.

Most recently, Eric accelerated up the ranks as a regional marketing manager at a leading hospitality organization, where he showed an ability to analyze, plan, and execute property growth strategies. He would more recently pivot and follow his heart, which led to Eric completing the Real Estate Salesperson program at Humber College, and pursuing a career in Real Estate.

The industry has always been in his blood, as Eric’s late Father’s career spanned decades in property development and architectural design, ultimately exposing Eric throughout his life to real estate projects of all shapes and sizes. Eric enters the real estate world determined and motivated to pave his own path, while having fun meeting incredible people, and ultimately channeling his father’s legacy into a lifelong career and passion of his own.

In his free time, he likes to stay up on current events and trends, and is an avid reader. For more active fun, Eric loves to play golf, hockey, and pickle-ball, enjoys a good hike, and when safely able, he’s at home spending time with family and friends. Eric has a love for travel, and continues to expand his knowledge and excitement for fun foods, and great wine. Eric recharges through running, and plans to complete his second half-marathon by 2022. Eric’s ongoing goal is to complete his private pilot license with intentions of leisure flying, as his love for aviation has spanned his entire life.

If you see Eric, say Hello - he is so very excited to get started!
