As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions and Ilan answered all of them. He is very knowlegable about the home buying process and the Baltimore City market. He is very responsive to emails and phone calls and always followed up quickly. I wanted to see alot of houses to know what was on the market and make sure I was getting a good deal, and Ilan showed me lots of houses. He found one he though I might be interested in that was still being rehabbed. I had not set out to buy a house that wasn't finished, but it had everything I was looking for and was a good value and I ended up buying it. Because it was still being built I got to pick everything out (floors, cabinets, countertops, etc.). I didn't really know what I was doing since this was my first house, but Ilan was happy to go with me to the all the stores the builders used and help me make my selections. My new house is great and I wouldn't have found it without Ilan. I couldn't ask for a better Realtor to help me buy my first home.
