Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $1.325M in Inner Richmond, San Francisco, CA.

There aren't enough good things I can say about Kevin. I am often skeptical when I read a 5 star review. They tend to be vague and feel disingenuous, but in this scenario Kevin deserves every bit and more.

My wife and I were casually browsing the SF market for our first home when we got lucky and found Kevin. We had met with 3-4 different brokers and didn't feel a connection with any of them. We explained to him that we were taking our time and he made us very comfortable with his approach to the process and was not pressuring at all. He had the perfect balance letting us know he was there to help without being pushy. He would occasionally send us listings to look at while still letting us remain in the drivers seat in finding a place.

Kevin was extremely responsive through the process and would text us or call us back to answer questions or talk about our thoughts on a certain property. I never felt like there was any time of day where he was unreachable and he made sure that we felt like we were his only clients. When we found the place we wanted to purchase, he went by to check it out on his own the day after we went and helped us think through the layout and pros/cons. He explained all the paperwork, the best approach to win the property, and helped us negotiate the best deal possible. He has a masterful understanding of the ins and outs of this business and I felt very comfortable and confident with him in control of our home buying process.

On a completely separate and more personal note. Both my wife and Kevin have Armenian roots and my wife is not from California. During our first time meeting, my wife complained how she missed her favorite Armenian food, Lahmajoon (Armenian pizza). Kevin laughed and told us that his mother makes it and that he would have her make us some. We didn't think much of it, but smiled and carried on our conversation. A month or two later we closed on our beautiful home and when we went to meet Kevin at the house to get the keys, he opened the fridge and inside was enough Lahmajoon to feed an army! Kevin goes the extra mile and his mothers Lahmajoon is delicious! I couldn't believe that he remembered and it really put a smile on my wife's face. It's a testament to his integrity and the strength of his word.

Kevin is an honest, caring, and skillful business man and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase property in the Bay Area.

Sold a home in 2014.

My wife and I are first time home buyers and we went through our fair share of real estate agents along with declined offers. The agents we worked with just didn't feel right until we met Kevin. He made the extraordinarily difficult San Francisco housing market as comfortable as possible with great knowledge of how to actually purchase a house in this city. We ALWAYS received quick replies to our compulsive questions/requests, and received assistance you would get from a trusted friend.

When we found a house we loved, he was personally invested in our happiness and desire to start our family in this home. After our first early offer was declined, I think he was more disappointed for us than we were. The good news is that it was later accepted. I genuinely believe it was accepted because of the personal relationship he built with the selling agent.

During the closing process he supported us in every way. This included meeting me at our new home to move an oven into our kitchen so that we would pass appraisal. I doubt most agents would do that for their client. In addition, we were nervous wrecks during the closing process and we were not always happy with the responsiveness of our loan agent or title company. During these times he called them to get us answers ASAP. In addition, he was available to us at all times of the day or night, including a few midnight text sessions.

Overall I couldn't recommend an agent more than Kevin Markarian. He was very professional during the process and treated us like family during the offer and closing experience. We felt that he was most interested in our needs as home buyers than anything else. If you are looking for an agent, it would be a mistake not give Kevin a call.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.0M in Miraloma Park, San Francisco, CA.

After interviewing a few real estate agents in San Francisco, we found Kevin and were impressed by his incredible reviews, and later on, we realized the reason behind his exceptional reviews. Kevin’s service exceeded our expectations. He knew the market to the best, thoroughly assessed our situation and needs, had remarkable negotiation skills, returned our calls within a few minutes, and on top of all was truly patient and listened to our needs. He explained to us all we needed to know, but never ever tried to push us or make decisions for us. Kevin’s expertise let us find our dream house very quickly and we got into a contract within a month. Given the highly competitive market conditions in San Francisco and in Miraloma Park, My husband and I were almost certain that we would get out-bided on our house, but it was Kevin who encouraged us to put an offer, and used his negotiation expertise to help us move to our current house. Kevin made the process of home buying a lot easier for us and went through all the steps with us very professionally. We got the keys on Valentine’s day and he surprised my husband and I with a bottle of Champagne and a box of chocolates!

Long story short, Kevin is a great agent with superb skills and expertise. We STRONGLY recommend him and undoubtedly, we would work with him in our next transactions.
