Arsalon Badri

    • I have never given an online review for any other person or business before. But Arsalon is an exceptional person, and people need to know that. If you are looking for the perfect realtor, you have found him. His name is Arsalon Badri. Look no further. Don't bother wasting your time with other realtors. And I really mean that. He is that good. Allow me to explain. I needed to sell my mom's house and for a good price. I am generally unfamiliar with Sacramento County real estate. I contacted Arsalon and two other separate realtors who all had good online reviews. I called all three realtors around the same time on the same day. I left voicemails for all three. I also asked all three realtors to look at my mom's house and get back to me. I also proposed a listing price for the house--knowing that the price was pretty high--but I thought why not try it? Arsalon was the first to call me back. He called me back within a very short period of time. After many hours had passed, one of the other realtors I called, texted me that she had received my voicemail message and that she would get back to me later. The third realtor I called never even called me back. A few days later after having heard nothing from the realtor that had texted me, I called her: her assistant answered and said that she was going to look at my mom's property the next day and call me back. I never heard from her again. When we spoke over the phone I immediately liked Arsalon. He was friendly, very polite, positive, upbeat, professional, and very knowledgeable; he answered all of my (numerous) questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. I was impressed; and I am not easily impressed. It became clear to me that Arsalon was a hard worker with a lot of meaningful knowledge and experience in selling Sacramento County homes. It also became clear that Arsalon was going to spend a considerable amount of energy in efforts to sell my mom's house for the highest price possible. That was exactly what I wanted. And that is exactly what I got. Arsalon quickly viewed my mom's house and made a number of smart suggestions as to how the home could be cleaned up and marketed. I hired Arsalon and we were off and running. Arsalon knew and contacted local professionals needed to clean the home at a reasonable price. I knew the home needed painting inside and out, and that the front and back yards were a mess. I suggested a credit to the buyer to pay for those needs. The house was then listed for sale; Arsalon held an open house on the property a few days later. Arsalon spoke with a number of prospective buyers at the open house and asked them what they liked and didn't like about the property. He paid attention to them and noted what their concerns were. Two weeks later Arsalon held a second open house on the property. Not many realtors do that. Again, this produced a number of prospective buyers. Many expressed interest in the property but also voiced concerns. Arsalon kept track of those concerns and discussed them with me. I examined the house with Arsalon in light of the concerns expressed by potential buyers. I agreed with Arsalon that the problems of the house needed to be corrected. Arsalon then very quickly contacted a contractor he knew who gave me a reasonable quote on the work. I accepted the quote and the contractor began the work. We took the house off the market to have the work performed. While the contractor was still finishing up the painting of the house, a prospective buyer looked the house over and made a FULL PRICE OFFER to purchase the house. Arsalon has a quick mind and the ability to rapidly identify, assess and then overcome problems and obstacles. Arsalon stays well-informed and his knowledge of real estate is astonishing. Arsalon's attention to detail is remarkable. We had to deal with a number of issues before escrow closed. Arsalon overcame all the challenges quickly and gracefully. Arsalon shepherded the sale of my mom's house through closing smoothly and without a glitch. Arsalon's demeanor also bears noting: He is always polite, friendly, modest, upbeat, highly competent, courteous (while courtesy is becoming all too rare these days); Arsalon is truly a pleasure to do business with. So, why would you hire anyone else? Arsalon is also easy to reach when you need him: he answers his phone and he calls you back promptly when you leave him a message. If you have got a problem, he knows how to solve it, and how to solve it properly and quickly. Don't just settle for some mediocre realtor who is not really interested in serving your needs, who does little for you and then ultimately disappoints you.Buying or selling your home is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your life; For such an event you should hire the very best: And the name of the very best is Arsalon Badri. Put Arsalon on your team, you will be happy you did.

    • Arsalon is by far THE BEST!! We will never use another realtor as long as we are in the Elk Grove area. We found and selected Arsalon through Google reviews and he did not disappoint!!! He was always so quick to respond, very knowledgeable, so patient, and always greeted us with a big smile!! It was an absolute pleasure being able to support such a great, hardworking person!!! Thanks for helping us find our perfect home, Arsalon!!

    • I can't say enough good things about Arsalon Badri! My husband and I received unexpected job offers in Sacramento (we were living in Southern California) and needed to find a home in Northern California ASAP. We spoke with Arsalon via phone/text/e-mail several times before coming up to look for homes. I was impressed by how quickly he responded to any messages. He was always calm and collected, which was so appreciated given the stress of a sudden move.Arsalon compiled an extensive list of potential properties based on the "want list" we gave him. On the weekend we came up to Sacramento, he had appointments made to see 16 properties! Everything went seamlessly, and we saw some great homes. One of those homes in Land Park ended up being "the one." Arsalon got our offer in to the listing agent right away and it was accepted! He was on top of everything during the escrow process. We just got the keys last week and couldn't be more pleased. On top of doing a great job with the sale, Arsalon also referred us to trusted contractors to assist with some upgrades we wanted to complete (electrical upgrade, paint, hardwood floors). All companies he recommended have been fantastic and we are very pleased with the work they have done on the house.I will definitely recommend Arsalon to any friends looking to buy or sell a home in the Sacramento area.

    • Everything you are reading couldn't be any more accurate! Arsalon has been nothing short of amazing as our Realtor! I really cant speak more of his professionalism, integrity, communication throughout the process and patience. He worked diligently on selling our home and went above & beyond. We were kept in the loop through out the whole process and he had multiple offers within 3 days of listing the property! He was able to sell our home 25k over asking and the house wasn't even on the market for a full week! We all have options who we choose to do business with and i really cant imagine ever purchasing or selling a home with another realtor! Thank you Arsalon for all of your hard work! You're a rockstar realtor!!!

    • In selling my parent's home, we had many choices of realtors (including relatives). We were right in selecting Arsalon! He is professional, knowledgable, personable, resourceful, and attentive. He was very patient with us as we had recently lost our Dad. It was difficult for my Mom to move from her home and Arsalon recognized this and was patient and compassionate. He was readily available when we had questions and quickly responded to calls and texts making us and especially my Mom feel that we were his priority. Through his hard work and attention to every detail, the house sold above the asking price in less than a week! We had an excellent experience working with Arsalon; and we wholeheartedly recommend him and Five Diamond Realty.

    • Would my wife and I hire Arsalon again: Absolutely. Would we recommend him to friends and family: Yes, for sure. We decided to interview 3 realtors to sell our house. All were certainly qualified and professional, but as we got to know Arsalon and how he would help us, we decided to go with him and happy we did. He was very communicative and immediately responsive. He got us through the listing, negotiation, and closing in a professional, experienced, and very quick manner. He made it all easy and low stress. Thanks Arsalon!

    • Never met anyone as responsive as Arsalon Badri. I lived in San Jose, CA, 2 hours away from Elk Grove. We contacted him on a Wednesday, he had us looking at 100 listings the next day and booked 10 of our favorite properties by the following Saturday. We bid on 2 houses, that by Monday, both had accepted us. Arsalon responds to emails and text messages almost instantly and at any hour of the day or night. This is arguably the most money anyone will spend. It's a confusing process. Yet I felt confident that Arsalon was getting us the best deals in our best interest and he held our hands carefully through each part of the process. He covered every tiny detail, ex. set up extra inspections sometimes without me even asking (but he of course got my approval first). He even took care of the tiniest details, like sending us measurements of the fridge and washer/dryer. He is extremely personable, easy to talk to and ask questions, but seemed aggressive and attentive enough to go to bat for us and get us what we need/wanted - constantly updating me at every step of the way. I got the house I wanted at the price I wanted, he negotiated all the repairs I wanted, etc. This could have been the most anxious time and most confusing process of my life, and I'm not exaggerating when I say Arsalon made it as comfortable, didn't even think it would be that smooth. You want Arsalon on your team when you're doing this.

    • After speaking with a few different realtors, it was clear that Arsalon was- BY FAR- the BEST! Arsalon is very professional, knowledgeable, and patient. He was always available to answer calls, texts, and show properties. I even dragged him out in the pouring rain several nights to look at properties, and we were always greeted with a smile. We looked at at least 15 properties before finding THE ONE. Arsalon also never took the "salesman" approach, which we had experienced with a realtor prior to finding Arsalon. He made the process so easy, and was very quick with getting the paperwork completed. We got the keys to our new house 21 days after our offer was accepted! All in All - a 10/10 experience!!

      - Dana
    • Arsalon is an amazing realtor and he gets the job done quickly! He had our house listed, sold, and closed in less than a month. He received an offer on our Elk Grove home two hours after listing it on the MLS and the offer was 7k over our asking price! He was very professional and very communicative throughout the whole selling process and thoroughly explained what was going on in the process every step of the way! Also, he is very knowledgeable about real estate in the Elk Grove and Sacramento area! If you need a great realtor, whether buying or selling a home, do not hesitate to call Arsalon! He will go above and beyond your expectations and you will be very pleased as we are!

    • Arsalon from Five Diamond Realty is as good as it gets when buying your home. I was a first time home buyer (closed in 18 days on 7/2/17 through Arsalon!), not related to Arsalon in anyway, and have no conflicts of interest when it comes to this review. I contacted Arsalon when I saw his great reviews on internet sites. I interviewed Arsalon over the phone about his work experience and to get a sense of his character, because at the time I was residing in another state far away from California. What I gleaned from the phone interview was that he had the experience and humble-caring-genuine-hardworking characteristics I was looking for in a realtor. It is hard to find a realtor you can trust, but having interviewed many realtors, I found that he was the right candidate for me. Education from UC Berkeley and obtaining his Broker's license are just a few of his professional accomplishments, and his excellent...excellent professionalism will shine whenever you talk with him. As a 1st time buyer, I felt he was supportive in explaining the process of home buying and guiding me through the tight deadlines/paperwork required in buying a home. And because of his extensive work experience/education as a Broker, he has the insights from both a buyer's and seller's perspective to help you in finding your ideal home. That is a big plus for me in my choice to choose Arsalon. Besides from being the best realtor out of the many I interviewed for the job, he goes above and beyond the typical role of "realtor." He never pushed me to make quick decisions or put me in an uncomfortable spot, and he's a great listener as well. He spent a lot of time replying to my texts late at night outside of normal business hours (ty! and sorry! :-) ). He Facetimed/Skyped me to show me homes via the web when I was out of state, and no he does not try to hide the flaws in the home (a source of worry for me as a buyer looking at homes through FT/Skype). He took my parents to see homes in my stead while I was still outside of California. He bought me an extra carbon monoxide alarm because I happened to mentioned wanting extra one. He makes you feel comfortable about the whole process because typically you don't buy a home very often, and it can be a very unnerving/stressful process. I have had no regrets since my first conversation with Arsalon, and I very much look forward to when I work with him again for my next house. He has my full support and trust in realty, and I encourage you to give him a call if you are inquiring about selling/buying a home. You will find that he is as good as it gets, and a conversation with him to answer all your questions will make your home buying/selling journey a lot more pleasant, as it was for me.

    • We made the right choice not only in choosing a home but with choosing our agent. From the first moment we spoke with Arsalon, we were impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He understood immediately what we were facing, and helped us every step of the way. He provided that dynamic balance of incredible service and motivation with warmth, energy, and understanding of his individual needs. His years of experience as a broker are reflected in his success and passion for his work. Arsalon tirelessly made himself available during the entire purchase and closing process. Our offer, inspections, and closing was 100% smooth with no issues. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for his service in purchasing our new home!

      - Lesley
    • We've only met Arsalon 30 days ago and within that short amount of time, we sold our home and purchased our new home with Arsalon. We went to one of his open houses, not entirely in the market to buy but just to check out a nice house for fun. When buying the house became a possibility, he ended up representing myself and the seller of the home which i initially had reservations about. Seems like everyone says that's never a good idea because they work for the seller only and undercut the buyer. In my situation, I thought that Arsalon did a great job representing the seller and myself fairly. The things I really like about Arsalon is that:1) He is literally available any time you need advice, explanation, paperwork, whatever it is, in any communication platform (email, text, telephone, in person). He's probably more responsive than your own spouse haha. All kidding aside, as a business professional and with a 1.5 year old running around, it's really hard to meet around office hours so i really appreciated that he was available through phone, text and in person even after 8-9pm at night. 2) He's very thorough in his work and does not cut corners. He had professional stagers stage our home beautifully and a professional photographer. A picture is worth a thousand words and definitely made our listing stand out among the other listings. He made sure we met all timelines and deadlines. 3) His years of experience shows when you speak to him because he is a true professional in what he does and his breadth of knowledge. It can get overwhelming when you're reading real estate contracts and jargon but Arsalon was able to clarify and answer any questions that we had. He gave us honest recommendations in regards to what offers are strong offers, what we can do to fix up our house for sale, what to do when dealing with issues of the house we're buying, etc.4) Him and Mike Martinez (mortgage lender) make one amazing team together. I feel like one of the most stressful part of buying a home is the loan process. Everything can fall into place one minute and it can just fall apart at a drop of a hat if your loan officer cannot get their act together. They are always in communication with each other and aware of the statuses of each home.5) Most importantly, I trust him as my real estate agent. I don't say that very often with agents because at the end of the day, they do have stake in the sale and/or purchase of your home and some agents take advantage of that. Buying a home is such a huge investment that you've worked so hard to save up for, you want to make sure you are in good hands. Arsalon will take care of you as a client and you will not regret your decision in choosing him as your agent.I am so appreciative of all of the work that he has put in for us and ensuring that our buying and selling experience was a positive one. With his help, we have been able to purchase our dream home and cannot be happier! As his goal states, that he strives to be your "realtor for life!", and he has definitely achieved that for us. Thank you Arsalon!

    • Amazing Amazing Amazing!! Arsalon is a 10-star agent. I had a house in Sacramento and resided in the Bay Area. Arsalon took care of everything and was responsive and passed on good advice when requested. If you have a house to sell anywhere in the Bay Area to Sacramento, I highly recommend Arsalon!Go Bears!

      - Grace
    • I can not say enough good things about working with Arsalon on the sale of a home! He is exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful and available. Due to a death in the family, I had to sell a CA home when I live in Chicago. Arsalon handled everything - from helping me pick out paint, paying for and hiring a great stager, hiring and paying for a carpet cleaner that worked magic on the carpets, and taking care of moving excess furniture into the garage. The house sold in 3 days - substantially above the listing price. The inspections and closings went very smoothly. And, when it was time to move everything into storage, he had contacts who were willing to pay for and move out the refrigerator, washer and dryer. In addition, he had a friend who was willing to take furniture that I didn't want to keep. Amazingly great result! And an extremely pleasant experience. You would do yourself a great favor by selecting Diamond Realty.

      - Deborah
    • Arsalon is by far the best realtor I've ever worked with. He was always available when I needed him. He was knowledgeable about the properties in my area and had a very specific plan for selling my home that worked out excellently. He even paid to have my home staged out of his own pocket. The property was in escrow in 6 days of being on the market and sold for $35,000 over asking. When searching for a new home he was always straightforward with me and gave excellent advice. I would recommend Arsalon to any of my family and friends.

    • There are not enough words that can describe how amazing Arsalon was as our realtor. We interviewed a couple of highly-rated realtors and he definitely stood out from the pack! We knew right away that he was meant to represent us. Upon our first meeting he was kind, respectful, well-prepared, confident and humble. He always PROMPTLY answered all of our questions and concerns. His response time is impeccable, which is so important in my book! He was always on time to every meeting. He made the whole process easy and flawless and I don't think it would have been if it were someone else representing us. We have had experience with a couple of not-so-good realtors and he is by far the cream of the crop. If you are looking for a realtor, look no further because we have already done the interviewing for you and Arsalon IS your man! He sold our house quickly and for more than we thought we were gonna get! My only complaint is that we moved out of state and can't have him as our realtor anymore Arsalon was a real blessing to our family.

      - Jessie
    • Arsalon is the best realtor I have ever worked with! He is so knowledgeable about the market and was able to get us way more than we imagined for our home and so quickly!! He helped us with staging and other prep to get our home ready to sell. His marketing and work ethic made all the difference; he did open houses every weekend and followed up every time someone showed our home. He is always available for questions and is always courteous and professional, and kept us updated throughout the process. Never did I wonder about the status of our contracts or what next steps in the process were. Arsalon is so trustworthy, honest, and made sure our best interests were protected. Usually selling a home is so stressful but Arsalon took all the stress out of it and made it an easy process. I feel so blessed to have worked with him and strongly recommend if you need the best, call Arsalon!!
