What a super exciting ride. Last July 2018, Alex Sverdlik from Markarian Realty helped me buy my adorable house in Lake Balboa California. The housing market was on fire. I was headed out of town and I called Alex one hour before the bids were due and he talked bidding strategy with me in terms that anyone could understand. He is so knowledgeable. When the bidding time closed there were 18 initial offers. Well I have to say, with the help from Alex my bid was one of the 9 very strong bids to be picked for round 2. Round 2... Alex and I were given a deadline to turn in my final offer. Because Alex is so knowledgeable of the market trends he had a bidding strategy to discuss with me that was going to give me a pretty good chance of getting my dream house. Well, we turned in my final offer and ALex was right on with his strategy. Out of the final 9 round 2 bids, my bid was accepted by the seller. From the bottom of my heart I would recommend Alex Sverdlik from Markarian Reality in a second.
Even though my husband and I have many friends and family who work as Realtors we decided to use Jacob Mkhitarian Realty. We are so glad we did! His professionalism, negotiation skills, and knowledge of the market is unmatched! He was able to structure our offer on our Granada Hills home perfectly and got us into escrow in just a few days! Even though the sellers were thinking of waiting a few extra days for another offer, Jacob put pressure on them and got our offer accepted. The other offer eventually came in at over asking price but we were already in escrow under asking. We loved working with Jacob and we recommend him to anyone looking in Granada Hills, Sherman Oaks, North Hollywood, and more!
The team at Markarian Reality were amazing, especially our Realtor Richard Tchorbadjian. Richard helped us navigate through some challenging issues with our mortgage approval and was able to help us close on the purchase of our condo within our budget. He really went above and beyond by responding swiftly, at all hours of the night.
I can say it was the best expereince I've had dealing with a realtor.
