From the beginning till the end Tom was a complete professional. He was always in contact with me keeping me informed on what was going on in the sale of my late stepmothers condo. He told me right from the beginning what he thought the condo was worth and we had an offer a little over that. I would highly recommend using Tom in your next sale or purchase as I feel he went above and beyond what I expected from him. A super hard worker, communicator and very knowledgable about the Glendale area.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Glenwood, Glendale, CA.
Tom Barseghian helped me buy a duplex in Glendale and all I can say is that he is the best at what he does and is a man of his word! I was referred to Tom by a co-worker of mine and when we met, he told me that sometimes it is not about the offer or terms that determine whose offer gets accepted, but WHO YOU WORK with matters just as much. Funny that when we bought my duplex, it came down to the fact that Tom had a great past relationship with the listing agent and I know for 100% fact that if he wasn’t representing me, I would not have had my offer accepted out of the multiple offers that were on the property. A few days after my offer was accepted, a $30k higher offer came in as a matter of fact. Tom’s quick action and experience, helped get my offer accepted before the competition could even react and possibly saved me having to outbid another buyer by that $30k! He is worth every penny as a Realtor just for that reason alone.
Tom is very responsive, whether it be in person, via email, phone or text. He is always dressed professionally and very informed with what it takes in today’s market to get the job done! I would recommend Tom to anyone who is looking to SELL or buy because of his great reputation, hard worth ethics, and ability to negotiate in a manner that makes the other party want to work with him & his clients!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Burbank, CA.
My husband and I highly recommend Tom Barseghian, we can easily say he was the best real estate agent either of us has ever worked with. He is extremely hard working, responsive, and knowledgeable.
Our family needed to find a home quickly, and Tom worked with our schedules and time restraints with professionalism and willingness. He put in offers without delay, and it was his persistence that helped us get an offer accepted.
During the process, he was knowledgeable, available and helpful. We have zero complaints and only gratitude for the expert job that Tom did to help make the complicated process of purchasing a home as easy as possible.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Citrus Grove, Glendale, CA.
Where do I begin? I had nothing but the best experience with Tom. I recently moved to the United States from Australia so as you can imagine, the process of purchasing a house is very different. He was very knowledgeable with the neighborhood and he had an eye for what potential or pitfalls each property had. Even if we looked at houses that were a long drive away (and during peak traffic times), Tom was always there to meet us at the property at a time that was convenient with us. We have 3 kids under 5 and Tom was very understanding of our necessities when looking for a property.
Tom was always very professional, well dressed and catered to all our needs. His responsiveness supersedes excellence. He essentially held our hand through every step of the way and helped us purchase our first house with minimal stress. Tom also recommended a very good lender to us whom we used and he was very knowledgeable and patient with explaining how lending works here in the US. This made Tom very resourceful to us with his excellent referrals for services we needed. I would consider Tom is not just our realtor, but has become our family friend and my family will definitely keep in touch with him even though escrow has closed. If only all realtors were half as good as Tom, purchasing a home would be stress-free for anyone!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Rossmoyne, Glendale, CA.
It was a pleasure to work with Tom in purchasing our first home. He is incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, patient and a true professional. His vast knowledge of the market and how to get things done in the right way, allows him to make desired results happen right on time for closing. He is extremely organized and dedicated. He is great at following-up as well and will not leave any loose ends or unfinished tasks. Tom is genuine young man and truly invested in helping you find your "perfect" home.
At every point during the buying process, he responded to our every question promptly and thoroughly, communicated in an effective manner and was very proactive. His professionalism and cordial demeanor shined during the negotiation process, as he successfully navigated us through multiple other offers. In a field in which competence is not guaranteed by the mere possession of a license, Tom’s integrity, market intelligence, and work ethic set him apart from other agents. We thank him sincerely and recommend him unequivocally!
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Citrus Grove, Glendale, CA.
Tom was our agent when we sold our house in Glendale. He is professional, courteous, responsive, has a great sense of humor...and he is very good at what he does. He had a smart strategy for selling our home that really resonated with us, and he explained his reasoning behind every decision. He gave us timely reminders without being overbearing, and walked us through the complicated process of selling a home in California.
One of the things that I appreciated most about Tom was his attention to detail...he did those little things that let you know he was paying attention. For example, he called me by my nickname after I introduced myself that way, even though all of the escrow documents and my email header contained my full name. He used reply-all when appropriate, keeping my wife in all of the discussions, when it became evident that we were equal partners in the process. He would send quick "got it" replies to acknowledge that important information had been received. He used professional language in his e-mails, even when tapping out replies on the phone. He was amenable to communicating by phone, text, and e-mail.
I am also quite certain that Tom paid for himself in full, versus the price that we could have gotten if we sold the house ourselves. I have no doubt that we would have gotten a significantly lower sale price, and would have gone mad with the paperwork, messages from the buying agent, inspections, escrow process, etc. I have no regrets whatsoever in enlisting Tom's help for our sale.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in West Central, Pasadena, CA.
Tom Barseghian EXCEEDS expectations! He is the most professional, responsive, persnable and knowledgeable realtor I have dealt with. Tom represented my family's best interest on the buying AND selling ends simultaneously. We had a real challenge ahead of us and chose Tom based on his positive attitude, lightening quick responsiveness, and knowledgeability of the current market. Within 2 hours of meeting Tom, he had run comps on our existing home and provided us with the info we needed to move forward with our pursuits of buying and selling. His responsiveness never, ever wavered throughout the four months he represented us! Tom ALWAYS maintained a positive outlook re. our situation no matter how tough the market or situations became. He saved our deal and made things move forward with both escrows closing on time! Tom also helped us achieve obtaining top dollar for our home, which was necessary in us moving forward on the buying end. He understood our situation inside and out, never forgetting a single step! He negotiated on both sides to get us where we needed to be to make both home deals go through. If you are looking for a realtor who really cares about the interest of his clients and understands that your time is valuable, you need Tom B., he is topnotch!!!
Sold a home in 2013 in Cucamonga, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730.
Starting six months ago, after moving and living for six years in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, my wife and I started to believe that we could move back to the area that we used to love living in -- Highland Park, Eagle Rock, and/or Pasadena. Moving close to one of these areas was critically important to my family. Everyone else in the realty business that we talked to basically laughed at us and turned us away when we told them our plan of selling in Rancho and buying a house out here closer to LA. Not Tom Barseghian. This guy was kind, friendly, said we could do it, and worked his @$$ off to make it happen. Tom was responsive at all hours via all forms of communication: text, phone, email, you name it. He carefully explained each and every document and process that we were signing and going through, respectively. He met us when we wanted to look at open houses; he took us out and he supported us in our decision when we finally found our dream house, which had just about every thing go wrong with it after we decided. NO OTHER realtor could have dealt with all the issues we ran into but Tom Barseghian. And he didn't act like he knew more than us -- he got down in the trenches with us and WAS ONE OF US. Tom is now a friend of the family and we recommend him wholeheartedly for all of your realty needs. Give this guy an inch and he'll take you a mile!
To my wife and me, Tom was extremely helpful during the entire home purchase process where he was on top of all related matters. We really appreciate his initiative and responsiveness in handling matters such as providing home inspection info, home insurance info, title and deed info, and property management info, just to mention a few. Bottom line: highly recommended.
Bought a home in 2013 in Citrus Grove, Glendale, CA 91206.
Tom Barseghian epitomizes professionalism. He makes the home purchase process very simple and does it with integrity and pride. He does a great job of communicating with his clients and makes himself available even at unreasonable hours. When working with Tom it felt like I was working with an old friend. He also helped me to find a great loan officer, who worked very professionally and promptly. They, together did great job for me. I trusted the whole process to Tom and his friend Mike and I'm happy to say, that I purchased a wonderful property with very low rates. I'm looking forward to working with these guys in future.
