Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Castro Valley, CA.
Paymon and his team assisted me in purchasing a home in Castro Valley. I was very happy with his services due to a few reasons. First, his communication was excellent. Anytime there was a new development, he would inform me. If I had any questions, he was almost always available to take my calls or would get back to me quickly. Secondly, the property that I bought was a short sale. So not only did we have to work with the owner of the property, but we needed to work with the bank. This was done without a lot of the issues that others deal with in short sales. I believe this is because of Paymon's relationship that he had built with the bank. Thirdly, the knowledge of the market, and of his industry allowed for a very efficient buying experience. As with any transaction, there were hurdles. But we were able to overcome them and to close in good time. Overall, my experience working with Paymon and his team was a good one. And I would welcome the chance to work with him on my next property.

Bought a home in 2014.
This was my first time buying a home and I a wonderful experience with Paymon and his team. They were extremely responsive throughout the entire home buying process (and even followed up after) while providing helpful suggestions. They were great negotiators as well; Paymon was able to help us close the deal for over 5% under the asking price (which is *extremely* rare in SF)!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Potrero Hill, San Francisco, CA.
Paymon is quite unlike anyone that One comes into contact with these days! He is personable and takes a personal interest in his clients situations. I never felt like I was bothering him no matter how small or frequent my concerns. Peace of mind and a true professional

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.15M in Redwood City, CA.
When my wife and I decided to sell our house, we agreed to use an agent that we didn't know. We started the interview process and Paymon was first to be interviewed. After meeting with Paymon, we didn't need to interview any others agents. Paymon's enthusiasm, let alone the knowledge he brought to the table, was extremely impressive. He immediately started the process to get potential buyers interested. All of the advertising and other marketing strategies that he took created a boat load of interest for our house. Also, Paymon's responsiveness was incredible. If he was unable to answer my calls, he would call or text me back within seconds. Selling a house is always a nervous process and I'm a very nervous person. I almost felt like Paymon was my therapist. He was always there to make sure that we knew what was going on and to reassure us that everything was going well. Paymon was able to negotiate a selling price that was well above the offers that we received, making us very happy. If it weren't for Paymon, we don't think this transaction of selling our house would have turned out as good as it did. We would recommend Paymon anytime, anywhere. Thanks Paymon

Sold a home in 2013.
I think I am experienced in selling/buying houses. I have different agents, I can't complain, all of them were good. I guess from now on I will have only one - Paymon. Here is why: 1. I found the house I wanted to buy, he did all negotiation and it did not take long, I was happy with price and other conditions. 2. At the same time, he sold my house very fast and painless. You know what I am talking about - when for months you have to hide your tooth brush because someone maight come to look or endless week-ends with open houses. He found the buyer first week after he put house for sale. 3. His negotiation skills are just amazing! And he considers seller's interests as well as buyer's interests. It is very hard to find a balance but he did. 4. He is always reachable - I mean like 24X7, not when he needs you, but when you need him. 5. You will not have any headache when you look for the loan, he was working on my loan too and I am happy with the result 6. Fun guy, always in the good mood, if you need help in anything else - he has good advice. 7. Thanks a lot Paymon! It was really great experience working with you. Good Luck in your carier. You are really helping people to find what they need.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Millbrae, CA.
Do you need a miracle in your life? How about a guardian angel? I found both with Paymon! He took me on as a client for a loan, when no one else would! I was frantic! I felt that I was on the brink of losing my home! I didn't think anything could ever save me! Prior, I had gotten a predatory loan, and it became clear that the lender didn't want my payments; they wanted my home! I went from a life of despair, depression and hopelessness, to feeling like my future was bright; all because I had the good fortune to meet Paymon Ghafouri! What impressed me most of all, was the fact that Paymon never gave up on me! He was always there for me, and always confident. He never looked down on me, or ever made me feel like a loser! (I certainly felt like one myself!) He made the process extremely easy for me, but I knew that he was working his rear end off to get a great deal for me...he DID! I can sleep again, and life is sweet! Thank you, Paymon; you are a blessing to me!

Bought a home in 2013.
I can't say enough great things about Mr. Ghafouri. I was hesitant at first, as he was talking a different type of loan other than "conventional". He was very patient and took his time to explaine how the loan he could achieve for me worked. It made sense, very good sense.

The speed at which he was able to complete the loan process was incredible and would have been even faster if I had managed to keep up with his requests for needed paperwork.

In the end, the work that Mr. Ghafouri and his staff managed for me made a huge difference in my future and I couldn't be happier.

Thank you again and again for making something so important happen for me. Something the conventional banks could not accomplish.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.375M in Linfield Oaks, Menlo Park, CA.
In my 25 years and nine home sale/purchase transactions I have NEVER worked with an agent as effective and completely focused....Paymon is AWESOME!

We were entering the slower season with our home in Menlo Park...with a very similar home on the market for a much lower price. But from the MOMENT we met Paymon he was all over the opportunity. Not only with an exceptional marketing plan and relentless hustle and follow up...Paymon really helped us get our home ready to sell. He has a full team of people and service providers that helped us get our home really cleaned up and clutter free....and his staging company partner is INCREDIBLE. All of this at very very low costs thanks to Paymon's negotiating on everything.

In the end we sold our home in less than two months at a premium to the market! THANK YOU PAYMON!

One last point of amazement....you would think with the great personal service, impressive marketing campaigns to get to real buyers and tremendous hustle throughout the process that Paymon's services would be expensive. INCREDIBLY Paymon can structure his commission to fit your needs....he charged us 4% (total) and told us we could withdraw/cancel at any time if we were not happy....A Tremendous Value for Great Performance!

My only regret is that I cannot MOVE Paymon to our new location in Atlanta so that he can sell our next home!

Thanks Paymon for all you did for us!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in American Canyon, CA.
I am very glad to have Mr. Paymon as my real estate agent for our recent purchase of a house in American Canyon, CA.

This house is our 2nd house, so we had worked with real estate agent before and are familiar with the normal house purchase process.

However, this one is much unique and different from our previous house purchase. (1) The house is in CA, very far away from where we live [IA], so we don't have chance to meet the agent and look at the house by ourselves. (2) This house was a short sale, so the nature and the actual process of the house buying are very different from the traditional house purchase. (3) Mr. Paymon served as a dual agent during this process, representing both the seller and the buyer.

All above factors present challenges. (1) We could not meet the agent and have a face-to-face communication, and we had to rely on phone conversation and emails for information exchange; (2) We had to have our friend [in CA] to make arrangement with Mr. Paymon to look and review the condition of the property; (3) We need to gain knowledge to have a good understanding about the short-sale process [which is different from both the traditional house-purchase and the foreclosure sale]; (4) It was not uncommon to have unhappy short-sale sellers causing property damage and/or even back-out the purchase process, so the agent need to work very closely and deliberately with all parties to get the process going; (5) Since our agent is a dual agent, there is a balance to keep regarding the interest of both seller and buyer.

After some contact with Mr. Paymon, it became quite obvious that he is very knowledgeable about the nature and the pitfall of the short-sale process, had experience handling this kind of house-purchase process, and knew how to work with seller / buyer / bank to keep things going from one step to the next. When we were getting closer to the bank's proposed closing date, the buyer and the lender [along with the mortgage officer] became very concerned about meeting the target closing date, since the appraisal contractor caused some delay for the lender. Mr. Paymon seemed to have some ideas [along with plan B] to help address the concern, and we managed to get the deal done under a very tight timeline!

During the months, he always responses very quickly when we have some questions or need to talk to him.

The experience working with Mr. Paymon has been a very pleasant and positive one. He is among the best real estate agents I have worked, and I would definitely recommend him when people need to buy a house.
