Ian did a great job helping me purchase my first house! Highly recommended! He is a true professional, highly knowledgeable of the west Los Angeles market, knows and understands how to get things done, and he’s quick to respond to questions. I wanted to purchase my friend’s house in West Los Angeles and Ian served as both the buyer’s and seller’s agent for my friend and I. He did a great job looking out for and taking care of the interests of both of us. This was my first home and I didn’t know what to expect or what to do, but Ian covered all the details in depth with me and in a very professional manner and made sure I understood everything that had to be done. I was using a VA loan to purchase the house and this meant that there were stricter codes and regulations the house had to comply with than when using a standard conventional loan. Ian went above and beyond what is expected of a normal real estate agent and helped my friend get his house up to code. He personally oversaw the work required for the house and even did some of it himself, which ensured the house passed inspection. Additionally, he personally oversaw and worked with the appraisal representative, oversaw the inspections, handled all the necessary paperwork, coordinated for the escrow account, and interfaced with my loan officer to ensure that everything got taken care of. He also kept me up-to-date all along the way and was always available via phone whenever I wanted to talk. This made the whole process very simple, which I was very thankful for because I work as a consultant and travel internationally quite a bit and the entire time that we were in escrow, I was out of town. Ian e-mailed me all the documents I needed to sign via Docusign which made it super easy to sign them in a timely fashion, no matter where in the world I was. Overall, I am extremely satisfied and happy with the work that Ian did and I would highly recommend him.
