What People are Saying
I loved the highly personalized, creative, knowledgeable, attentive service that netted quick results and got me the best deal. Aaron carefully listened to what I was looking for, expanded my home search into areas I didn't even know existed, used his contacts to get me into pocket listings, patiently answered a multitude of questions, and never let his personal preferences get in the way of what I wanted. He scheduled several home tours over a couple of days and made the experience fun for our whole family, not easy in a pandemic. Once we found our dream home, he negotiated with our best interest in mind and quickly closed the deal. My experience was so fabulous I'd definitely hire Aaron again and highly recommend him as the overall best agent.
Aaron was always very responsive, and made himself available to our requests and visited properties for us. Aaron is very familiar and knowledgeable of the Santa Monica and westside real estate market. We trusted Aaron's opinions and judgements as it quickly became apparent he wasn't dealing with us just for a sale/purchase. Aaron is honest, straight forward and of the highest integrity.
Aaron was always considerate of our needs and extremely time responsive. If we put in a call, he either answered live or responded in minutes. He was always helpful at open houses, helping to decorate our condo for sale and was always considerate of our private time and lives. He was always available to answer questions and provide guidance. In today's tough Real Estate market, you want the process to play into your hand, but the reality is that there are difficult trade-offs to make. Aaron was very helpful as we navigated such issues as Price vs. timing and Contingency sale vs. Cash Sale. His counsel was always wise and fair, allowing for our own objectives and desires to ultimately prevail. Aaron's support extended to helping us with locating the service professionals needed to clean our new home, install the Audio-Visual equipment and move the furniture.
Aaron has taken us through 2 successful house buying processes and 2 rentals. One of the purchases was highly competitive, multi-over-asking offers and Aaron's insights gave us the key edge to come in just above other offers without over paying for it. Aaron is level-headed and has excellent local knowledge with a great network of other experts he can access if needed. We would definitely highly recommend Aaron for any residential real estate transaction in West LA/Santa Monica.
Aaron is extremely knowledgable about all the areas and pocket neighborhoods of the Westside. He showed us some great properties in Santa Monica, Venice, Mar Vista, Del Rey and Westchester. He asked the best questions and really listened and observed to understand what we needed. I've met real estate agents that are cheesy or sales-y or fake, and after getting to know Aaron I have a newfound respect for the profession. He's super down to earth, responsive, honest and professional. He was an excellent guide in the steps / process of buying a home and we learned a lot from him. The timing didn't work out for us to buy just yet but when we're ready, we look forward to working with Aaron again. He's a top-notch realtor and an even better person.
