In our household, Artin is our realtor FOR LIFE. He helped us buy our condo 7 years ago, helped us sell our condo (sold within a week, closed escrow within 2 weeks!), and helped us buy our house a month ago. Perhaps we’re transacting so much just so we can work with him? Maybe =)
He’s HONEST and CREDIBLE which are the most important characteristics you want in an agent. It felt more like friendship than it did a business transaction. If he believed we shouldn’t put an offer on a house (even though it may mean big bucks for him) he would tell us straightforward his concerns.
He’s PATIENT which is truly appreciated especially if you’re a nervous buyer or seller and have a long list of questions. He makes you comfortable enough to ask all the questions you have… plus whip out list number 2 of questions! Oh the many questions the hubby asked…
He’s RESPONSIVE which is a characteristic that is missing from other agents. He returns phone calls, texts, and emails. He even texted us back while he was at his wife’s birthday party! If this isn’t going above and beyond, then I don’t know what is.
He’s KNOWLEDGEABLE which is very important and anyone who knows Artin knows that he as extensive knowledge and experience in the real estate market. My hubby was throwing construction and permit and building questions left and right and Artin knocked ’em all out. This was important to us as it weighed in our decision to buy a house or not. If anyone knows Glendale, it’s this guy!
He’s TECHNOLOGICALLY SAVVY which is impressive because I would get emails from him daily on listings that fit my needs. He would filter the listings for me! Now, that’s personal service right there.
And lastly, he’s KIND HEARTED. When he handed us our keys, he was also generous in a way that pleasantly surprised us and welcomed us into our new home.
Thanks Artin! Looking forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come!
