Eric was born in Columbia, MD and attended Howard County public schools. He attended James Madison University, majored in marketing, and has worked extensively in advertising. In 2003 he began what was to become an illustrious Real Estate career. He teamed up with The Creig Northrop Team of Long and Foster in 2008, and became a top producer of a team that went on to becoming the top producing team in the entire nation 3 times, which is the most in history. In that capacity he won many awards, including: Executive Club member, Rookie of the year, Top agent in Volume for the Carroll Office (2009); Directors Club member, Top agent in company for units, Top agent in units and volume for the Carroll Office (2010); Executive Club member, Top agent in Volume for the Carroll Office (2011); Platinum Club member (2012); Master’s Club member, Top agent in units and volume for the Baltimore Office (2013 and 2014).

In 2018, the Northrop Team of Long and Foster became Northrop Realty, a Long & Foster company. As part of that newly formed organization, Eric formed his own team, now known as The Eric Black Team of Northrop Realty. Eric’s business philosophy is quite simple. He believes in honesty, a quick response time, attentive follow-up, and looking out for his client’s best interest. He makes good use of his expert negotiating skills, knowledge and experience to his client’s best advantage. In short, Eric believes in treating everyone he deals with as his own family. In that regard, he is happily married, and a father of three. When not selling real estate, he enjoys spending quality time with his family, traveling, going to the movies, eating great food, and working out at CrossFit and Orange Theory.
