Due to appalling market trends my home was a very difficult sell. In the process of finally getting it sold I witnessed Mr. Lavin exercise a continually varied set of strong communication, negotiation, and marketing skills unflaggingly on my behalf. I was absent from the area over the time that my home was being marketed, and Mr. Lavin also assumed the responsibility of maintaining a strong presence and campaign irrespective of my ability to oversee his conduct in any way. He remained committed to the process even as it adversely impacted his own commission, and was, in the whole, my trusted liaison throughout. He is a kind and concerned man who understands the LA market. He also seems to me empathetic to each individual sellers specific needs. I would recommend his firm wholeheartedly to anyone.
