TOP 200 REALTORS IN THE U.S. (25 years experience)
Bought a Condo home in 2003 for approximately $1.075M in Altadena, CA.
He is excellent in helping me get value out of what i ca afford and allow the house to grow in value to about 50 percent more of what it is worth in 3 years. Part of it is due to market trend and part of it is due to Fred`s ability to seek out and negotiate deals. Thanks, Fred
Fred Ashkar has helped us to purchase our home. He has excellent real estate knowledge and has given us very sound professional advice in making our decision and meeting our needs. He is a hardworking professional who has guided us every step of the way, i.e. from searching for a home to escrow closing. Furthermore, he continued to provide us with reliable reference for home renovation which added values to our home. We’re 100% satisfied with Fred’s professional service, his utmost patience and his diligence. We’ll highly recommend Fred to our friends and family at all times.
I have used Fred Ashkar on both the sell side and buy side of this business. He is the most professional, hard working and result oriented broker I have ever met. He will go out of his way to help you get what you want.I strongly and highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling real estate.
Fred listed and sold my 4 unit apartment building when this type of unit was just beginning to sell. I made life more difficult for him by specifying that my tenants could not know about the sale until the sale was well in progress. In a difficult market, he sold this unit for my asking price within a short time frame. He screened all offers to ensure that the people making the offer were financially well qualified before he brought information about the offer to me; thus he save me a lot of wear and tear.
Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2009 for approximately $1.075M in Mid Central, Pasadena, CA.
Fred represented me as a buyer for a 4 unit apartment building. I was very impressed by his professialism and especially his knowledge. He is an expert in his field especially in the area of San Gabriel Valley. You can trust his word blindly. He did an excellent and very accurate financial analysis for the area where I was buying, he guided me step by step & always in the right direction. He did fight for me to guaranttee
my investment & he was always available when I needed him. Even after we closed escrow, Fred was always available to help me out in taking care of the rents since this was my first investment property I buy.
Fred is one of the best in the business. I have know him for many years and no one works harder than Fred. I have done several deals through him and his service was impeccable and expedient. I would recommend him to everyone I know.
Several years ago, Fred sold our house and represented us as buyers for another house. I was also able to get in touch with him at any time of day. My wife and I were very nervous about the process and he always made us feel very comfortable with the process and protected us at the same time.
The buyers to our home were very aggressive and kept demanding more and more. Fred was great at walking the fine of keeping me and my wife calm and while explaining the buyer some of their unrealistic desires.
Since then, I have stayed in the market, and Fred is always willing to go above and beyond. I ask him for favors, such as pulling comps, analyzing the market, submitted bids,etc. He is always very quick to respond and produce.
Fred Ashkar gave us invaluable help in preparing our house for sale and worked diligently to sell our house over the holiday season (Nov.-Dec.) while we had moved to another state, which culminated in a sale within our price point in less than 6 mos. My husband and I highly recommend him for his integrity, knowledge, and the ability to remain focused on his client's best interests throughout the stressful process of selling a. house
