Bought a home in El Sereno, Los Angeles
Buying a home is an incredibly daunting task. Armen is the kind of agent that makes the entire process unbelievably manageable, and even fun.
When my wife and I decided it was time to purchase a home, we reached out to Armen and provided him with the basic parameters: price, size, neighborhood, etc. Within 24 hours, Armen reached out with ~15 options that matched our criteria. As soon as our schedules permitted, we scheduled time to visit multiple homes in one outing.
Visiting homes with Armen was delightful. He was incredibly honest about what he viewed as 'pros' and 'cons;' he was knowledgeable about factors to consider, like traffic conditions; and he provided excellent home decor recommendations. But, most important of all, he genuinely placed our interests before his throughout the process -- if he found issues, or felt that a home did not align with our top priorities, he would (politely) 'veto' such homes. In other words, and as trite as this may sound, Armen was matching us to the right home, he wasn't simply trying to sell us a home.
Additionally, Armen made himself available for every single question we had about the ENTIRE process. If we had a question about a specific line of text in one of the hundreds of documents involved in purchasing a home, Armen quickly and kindly provided an answer. When we had questions about subjects related to our home loan, Armen provided an answer. When we had to secure insurance for our new home, Armen allowed me to conference him into the call with the insurance agent to make sure that we were getting the best deal and understood everything the agent through our way. Yes, you read that correctly -- I was already on the phone with an insurance agent, confused, so I texted Armen and he offered to JOIN THE CALL. That's how service oriented Armen is.
I can probably write five, or six, more paragraphs with specific examples regarding how amazing Armen is, but it really isn't necessary. If the above hasn't at the very least encouraged you to give Armen an exploratory call, I doubt more of my gushing words will do the trick. But, just know that by not calling Armen, you may be missing out on an incredibly rewarding experience.
