Thanks for clicking on me! My name is Eric R. Armstrong and I’m an Associate Broker and REALTOR® with EXIT Heart of Texas Realty located in the Central Texas community of Copperas Cove. As a REALTOR® I help people buy and sell homes as residential homes and / or investment properties in the Fort Hood Area. The communities I specialize in include Copperas Cove, Gatesville, Harker Heights, Kempner, Killeen, Lampasas, and Nolanville which are in Bell, Coryell, Lampasas and a bit of Burnet Counties. In 2012 I took the leap of working for myself after 25 years in the U.S. Air Force and Defense Industry and earned my Texas real estate license and have had a great time and success ever since! It’s most gratifying to see happy home buyers and home sellers conclude a successful transaction.
Just getting a real estate license isn’t enough. That’s why I aggressively continue to further my real estate education and experience. Of particular note, I’m one out of about 11 percent of REALTORS® that have earned a Graduate of REALTOR® Institute (GRI) certification. Also, because we’re located adjacent to Fort Hood and many of our clients serve in the military, I earned certification as a Military Relocation Professional (MRP). In all, I’ve amassed over 400 hours of classroom education that allows me to best serve my clients. I’ve worked with EXIT Heart of Texas (and their previous franchise, Avalar Real Estate) in Copperas Cove since 2012.
As a “retired” military officer, I’ve experienced the frequent Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves as many in our community. The military ensured I “moved often” and had about a 17 month average Time on Station throughout my 23 years of active duty! Additionally, educators have a very special place in my heart as I’ve been married to a second-generation teacher going on 30 years! I’m eager to help our educators access “free money” through the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation bond grant programs to assist in the purchase of their home.

Personal Vision & Commitments
My personal vision is to provide the best home buying and selling experience available to my clients and to my peers in the industry.
