Top Producing Agent 2012 & 2013, Cal BRE / Realtor License (9 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.
Tom is an outstanding agent. He is dedicated and truly committed to helping you find your home. He helped us through a challenging loan process by making sure all parties were comfortable and confident, ensuring that the job got done. He was always available to help address any concerns and was never too busy for us. The best part was that when we walked in to see the home we now own for the first time Tom predicted it would be our home and he was right. In today's market and world in general it's hard to trust people and that's why we are so fortunate we had Tom -
not only a wonderful real estate agent but a wonderful
person and friend!
Tom is a fantastic agent. He is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, has great negotiating skills and is very responsive to calls/emails. We live out of the area and had been working with another agent for several months. Bottom line is we were getting nowhere and knew it was time for a change. Since we had been monitoring Redfin for new listings, we decided to consider using a Redfin agent. We started looking at comments that Redfin realtors had posted on properties they had previewed and liked Tom's straightforward style. From there we read his reviews and were impressed by what we saw. We contacted Tom on a Wednesday and an interesting listing popped up on Friday of the same week. By the following Tuesday our offer on that property had been accepted! Throughout the escrow period Tom handled the details of the sale with ease and we are very happy with our purchase. It was definitely a leap of faith to select a realtor in such an unorthodox manner
but we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Tom helped us in buying a condo he's Bravo. I wasted my time with two other agents selling what they want not what we want, 'till we met Tom, he gave us many good options you could tell his experience and professionalism. After few months we found what we've been looking for. Since we're a first home buyers, we had many silly questions. Tom he always take his time explaining every detail making the process very easy, the man is knowledgeable and was patient with us all the time 'till we closed the deal, now we're enjoying our new home. THANKS TOM. You deserve all the stars man! I really recommend him.

Tom was so helpful in the process of purchasing a home. Now day’s weather you are purchasing or selling the process is stressfully and I felt none of that with Tom. He was always there every step of the way to guide us and help keep calm. No matter what happened he assured us everything would be okay and it was because, now we are proud owner of our fist home. If you need an agent Tom is defiantly the right person to go to he will answer all your questions accurately and in a friendly manner even if it is your 100th time calling him. He is on top of all the individuals involved selling agent, loan officer, escrow company, seller, and bank he is not afraid to get involved to get things done. Thank you Tom for all your help in purchasing our first home.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Montrose, CA.
We were first time home buyers, and it took us about 3 years to find something. The first year was just us looking on our own, going to open houses, and getting used to the LA real estate market. (I'm not originally from CA.) The second year was working with agents, trying to find a home. However, at that time, most of the homes available were short sales, and although we put in offers on 4 homes during that time, none of them worked out for various reasons. Through this process, we learned what bad agents are like. The things we experienced were: not doing what they said or lying to us, knowing less than us, only interested in making us buy for the commission, and not being accessible or willing to work for us outside of 9a-5p. Finally, in year 3, we met Tom. Tom was not like the other agents. He asked us what we wanted, always did what he said, and made sense when he explained stuff. Even when it was difficult or a long-shot, Tom would at least try. By the time we found Tom, the market supply was very tight, and it was difficult to find something. We wish we had worked with Tom earlier. Ultimately, we found something, and Tom worked very quickly to make sure we got it. Now we have our first home. We would definitely work with Tom again and recommend him because he was honest, hardworking, and knowledgeable. The only downside, I think, is that Tom is still on his way up to the top. However, I think it's best to work with him now so that when he is on top, and that's only a matter of time, you'll have an established working relationship and you'll be able to work with him instead of the other agents that will be working for him.

Tom was amazing from the start. Being first-time buyers and extremely picky and detailed, Tom was patient and never indicated anything but complete willingness to work with us and our hectic schedules. He was always helpful, full of advice and kept us informed and at ease throughout the entire process. We will definitely work with Tom again in the future and would recommend him to anyone!
Helped me rent a Condo home in City Center, Glendale, CA.
My experience with Tom was perfect My family and I were looking for a condo to rent, we looked everywhere on our own, we were getting very discouraged and frustrated by the junk we were seeing, and then we called Tom Barseghian and the very FIRST PROPERTY was our dream home. We absolutely loved it and he got it for us before it ever went on the market! He handled the whole process from beginning to end and in very quickly. We couldn't be more excited about our new home. If you are thinking about leasing your place or looking for a high end lease TOM BARSEGHIAN IS DEFINITELY WHO YOU SHOULD CALL!!

I first contacted Tom about a property that was no longer on the market, and without even needing to ask, he turned around a complete list of properties that were still available, in our price range, and in the area we were looking. Tom's attention to detail and knowledge of what is out there is second to none, and setting up appointments to view properties was the easiest part of the entire process.
He was also helpful walking through the property, noticing things like how much natural light the place would get, and pointing out drawbacks like street noise that may become a problem down the line. He wasn't on board to make a quick sale, he was there to make sure we were happy with the place we got. And we are. I'd recommend Tom to anyone looking for a new place, and we'll be enlisting his services again for our next move.

I am a foreign investor, with a little knowledge about the real estate market in the US. I was looking for a property in Los Angeles and was very lucky to find Tom. He is the kind of person that will do everything to make his clients satisfied. Tom has a truly solid knowledge of the real estate market. He always will give you a superb professional advice, analyzing objectively the advantages and disadvantages of properties in different residential areas. He is honest, understanding and patient, and has the capacity to work very hard to get the desire results. I was particularly impressed by his high ability to identify himself with the his clients needs and goals.
I would like to point out that part of the buying process was completed while I was abroad US. As usual, Tom showed a gorgeous professionalism, sending my very fast all the required documents to close the deal and keeping me informed about every relevant aspect of the transaction.
On top of that, Tom is a very warm human being, with whom is very pleasant to interact and interchange ideas, point of views and opinions. I recommend Tom very warmly and without any hesitation. He will make his best effort to make your dreams come true.
