RHONY: Erin Lichy Is a Real Estate and Interior Design Guru

As they deftly juggle the constant demands of high-flying professional and personal lives, the six new cast members of Season 14 of The Real Housewives of New York City are all superwomen in their own right.

But when it comes to real estateErin Lichy actually has bragging rights to being part of an elite group that Forbes in 2020 called “Marvel heroes of real estate.” The Eklund Gomes Team’s $2 billion in transactions that year merited such colorful and dramatic language. 

Lichy doesn’t wield a magic hammer à la Thor to seal the deal; she relies on her career experience, education, and a keen gut instinct of a native New Yorker to get the job done in style.

Before Season 14 of RHONY premieres July 16 at 9/8c on Bravo, take a look at Lichy’s firm that puts her in a league – if not a marvelous universe – of her own. 

Erin Lichy’s Interior Design Firm

Born and raised in Manhattan, location, just like multitasking, is instinctual to Lichy, a married mom of three who runs her interior design firm Homegirl. Like its founder, Homegirl is no one trick pony — the firm specializes in remodeling, project management, and more. And with Lichy’s connections to contractors, agents, and more individuals in the area, her firm has all the tools it needs to make their clients feel at home.

More than that, Lichy seeks to set an example within the, at times, cutthroat industry. “Erin believes in empowering women in the real estate community, and tries whenever possible to hire female designers, protect managers, contractors, and more. She hopes to inspire more women to enter the industry and share their talents!” the firm’s profile on Houzz reads.

Lichy’s been a real estate agent for over nine years, spending a part of that time flipping apartments and working on construction projects, both of which became passions for her. This inspired her to obtain her master’s degree in Sustainable Real Estate Development at New York University’s School of Professional Studies in 2013, a degree that is put to good use in her career.

Erin Lichy at Douglas Elliman Real Estate

In December 2018, Lichy became a full-time agent at Douglas Elliman Real Estate, one of the nation’s largest independent residential real estate brokerages. Two years ago, Lichy joined the Eklund Gomes Team at the same firm – a milestone she’s marked in her bio with a happy face in her LinkedIn bio

Fredrik Eklund, a familiar face to fans of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing, and John Gomes, launched Eklund Gomes a decade ago. Since then it has become an industry leader and record-setting that refers to its “mega team” as “The Billion Dollar Club.” In 2022, the team pulled in $4-plus billion in transactions.

Over the years we have grown in numbers as we have hired some of the best and most highly regarded agents in the business to join us on our journey,” the team’s web page notes. That includes Lichy, who has worked on Olympia, a luxury 76-condo high rise in Dumbo shaping up to be one of Brooklyn’s most expensive stretches of real estate, the Real Deal reported.

Her work on Homegirl goes hand-in-hand with real estate sales, with her Douglas Elliman profile noting, “With a fresh, detailed eye, Erin offers seasoned experience in renovation and staging to inspire a buyer’s vision.”
