"I am writing this letter of recommendation for Artin Sarkissian, the exceptional real estate agent who helped me purchasing my first home. Artin Sarkissian was always expedient in returning my calls, searching for properties, and setting up tours. He offered me an objective viewpoint on each house I toured, thereby helping me with my decisions. Artin was very helpful in answering all my questions. In all transactions Artin was organized, thorough, and personable. I found him to be knowledgeable about aspects of realty that surpassed just the legalities of buying and selling properties, and furthermore I was consistently impressed by his willingness to research questions he couldn’t answer right away. As a person, Artin was a pleasure to work with! Easy to talk to, a good listener, easy to contact, and always prompt at returning my calls or answering my questions. I highly recommend Artin Sarkissian."
"A for Amazing! After working with a few different Realtors we were prepared to lower our expectations and settle on something less than what we had hoped for. Our dream of buying a house we could raise kids in and potentially retire in seemed to be fading. Then we met Artin and planned a day to view some of his listings. About halfway through the day we found our dream house- though slightly more expensive than what we had hoped to spend we decided to go for it and haven’t regretted it since. The $5,000 bonus Artin provided at close of escrow also really helped with some home improvements we had hoped to begin. We would recommend Artin to anyone we know looking to find their perfect home, the entire experience went better than we had ever hoped. Artin is Awesome."
"Millions of thank yous cannot express the gratitude I have for your help with this next step in life (home ownership).Seriously there are very few people that I trust, and you have been able to be part of that group. Your patience over the last year and a half, your honesty and straight forwardness makes you so easy to work with and trust. I cant imagine having to go through this process without you. Thanks for going above and beyond what you had to... and continue to do now! I truly appreciate it As you said this isn’t the end! Thank you!"
"I am very blessed in Knowing you. You have been my support when I did not know whether I was coming or going .Thank you for being so patient and replying to all my questions and I know some of them were silly but you never grudged a reply. I was hassled by all the crazy companies trying to get a foothold on me and scare me and you gave me strength to go through and were always there when I needed your calm assessment of my plight. You handled everything in a way which was best for me and never took advantage of my not knowing things. I have nothing but praise for your ability to know what I was going through. Always Very punctual too!!! I am grateful that I was recommended to you and I will do the same for you. Thank You! Thank You!"
"We recently purchased a home with Artin Sarkissian representing us in the sale. We were in a time crunch with a toddler in tow and a new baby on the way. Prior to the actual home purchase, we spent several weeks with Artin scouring many listings in a wide area. Artin made himself available to us at all hours, was honest in his feedback about the homes we looked at, and did his best to take care of details in order to allow us time to deliberate. Once the decision was made to buy, Artin negotiated an offer that we were satisfied with and helped us in expediting paperwork so that we could close escrow in under a month. We would recommend Artin to any homebuyer who is serious about finding their next home."
"We would like thank you for all your hard work and dedication for what you do the best. We must say, that out of all the other agents that we happen to meet during our house-hunting period, you stood out from the very first day by your honesty, dedication, and non bias advices, which helped us a lot as it is a long and time consuming process, but you made it very easy and effortless on our part of course. If all the agents were a little bit like you, the real estate would be a very pleasant and happy business. Again we want to thank you for helping us realize our dream of owning our first and hopefully not last property. Keep up your great dedication and hard work and hopefully we will work together again. We recommend you with greatest pleasure to our friends and family and are sure that they will have the same satisfaction in your services as we did."
"Artin was recommended to us by a friend who had recently used him as their realtor. When we contacted him, we weren’t quite ready to make a commitment to buy, but wanted to start thinking about the home buying process – regardless, he welcomed us as clients. Since we were new to Southern California and were very unfamiliar with the area, instead of asking us to go drive around and look for open houses, he actually offered to spend the next few weekends taking us around to various neighborhoods so that we could get an idea of what our money would buy us as well as narrow down the areas. We spent about 2 months doing this before my husband and I made up our mind to actually get committed and start seriously looking for houses. In the two months, Artin took us to look at homes literally every weekend, where several times, we saw houses that we liked and could have put offers on. Understanding that we weren’t quite ready to move into that phase, he never pressured us and really allowed us to take our time deciding what our next steps were. Also being first time homebuyers, we had several questions and found that he was extremely patient with us in answering our questions – even if we kept asking the same things over and over again. Once we starting to seriously look, what we liked about Artin’s philosophy is that he wouldn’t let us buy a home if he didn’t think it would sell later on. This combined with his extensive knowledge on construction and quality of building materials really was invaluable during our search. Several times, we would walk into a house and think “this isn’t bad” and Artin would point out faults with the home or areas that were built well. This really showed us that he wanted us to get the best house and not just push us into a quick sale. We ended up actually looking at 110 homes over a period of 9 months. Any other realtor would have dropped us as clients 7 months ago, where again Artin was extremely patient and never pressured us into buying something we weren’t 100% happy with. When we actually found the home we wanted, Artin worked with the selling agent to negotiate us a good deal on the house, as well as getting the seller to fix things that we requested. All went smooth until we were supposed to close process. Both the escrow company and lender made several mistakes which delayed our close date by 12 days. During this extremely stressful time, we really were thankful for Artin because he would deal with both of them to try to fix the situation – and even though we yelled at him several times, he knew we were under stress and never got mad at us. He even answered his phone every time we called knowing that we were very upset and are likely to yell! Once we actually closed, Artin came by the new house with all of our paper work, a generous $3000 gift check and a bottle of very nice champagne!! We were very difficult clients. Not making up our mind for 2 months as to what we wanted, looking at 110 homes, and to top it all off, a very stressful closing period. Throughout the entire time, never once did he pressure us into making any decisions. He patiently educated us and fought for us when necessary, and to top it all of gave us a very nice gift for using him as an agent. He has definitely earned clients for life from us!"
