Ratings & Reviews

I was a first time, new home buyer and had some specific restrictions and requests when working with a real estate professional. I wanted someone who knew my preferred neighborhoods well, who could do a ton of legwork for me and narrow things down to those options that I would love and that I could afford in my preferred neighborhoods. I also wanted someone who was patient enough to answer ALL of my many many questions no matter how nit-picky, mundane, or complex. Kevin was my guy. I told him how I like to work, and about my preferences and neuroses. He was a true champ all the way through the end of my successful buying experience. He also helped me get all the information I needed and wanted in order to make a smart and successful offer! I had tried to purchase a home one year prior with someone else, and had a rough (and unsuccessful) go. I was even more adamant that I find someone really masterful and patient and I found him. Kevin spoke with me and asked the right questions to know what I was looking for and to find out what was most important to me given my budget constraints. Even in the rare instances he couldn't accompany me to an open house, he helped make all the necessary arrangements so that I could view the place at a time that worked best for me. And when we found a place that I just loved, Kevin helped us schedule a second walk through just so my partner could see it in person. In the end, Kevin was as enthusiastic about our success as we were and brought us a super kind gift to celebrate our new home. If we do this again, I'm calling Kevin again to help us again. I give Kevin my highest recommendation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Bayview, San Francisco, CA.

What an amazing guy Kevin is, he worked hard to make sure things happened for us. He really knows his field and is incredibly professional and personable. We were so lucky to have met him and benefit from his negotiation skills, don't think we could have done it without him. Highly recommended!!

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.
