  • Chayan helped me buy a home

      I can not say enough about Chayan and his team. I know that I would have never made it through the home buying process with out them! In full disclosure, I have known Chayan since he was in high school. However, I never understood his business or his skill set until we went through the epic journey of buying a house! As a first time home buyer, there is no way to truly comprehend the process and all the intricacies of acquiring a home. The time, the stress, the managing of several relationships, the tracking of all the paperwork and puzzle pieces that all have to fit together at the exact right time. I was amazed and dumbfounded for months. I nearly gave up on my dream of owning a home more then once, but Chayan and his team held my hand to the finish line with patience and respect and with a kindness I will forever be grateful for. He constantly reminded me that I could not ask a dumb question and to keep my eye on the prize. Chayan is a true professional that knows his area very well. His knowledge of neighborhoods in the Long Beach area and the Real Estate market were invaluable while we were house hunting. He helped guide us to the perfect home at the right price. Ashley and Shelley on his staff were friendly and attentive, response time to emails and calls were quick and helpful. The team was very in sync throughout the process. Chayan stood up for us when things got tough, guided us with respect and empathy when we needed help, gracefully and successfully orchestrated a seemingly impossible process, and ultimately made our home ownership dreams come true. He and his staff will forever be welcome in our home with open arms as we would not be in it without them! If you are looking for an agent in the Southern California/Long Beach area, Alavi Agency should be your first and only call!

    • Chayan helped me buy a home

        When writing a review I really didn't know where to start. I've been so wowed and impressed by Chayan I owed it to him and the work he did for my wife and I to let everyone know truly about our path. We received a level of commitment and honesty that felt like we were more than just clients. It all began with an idea of upgrading our condo to a house. I wasn't sure if I was ready to manage and handle all that came with purchasing a home again, yet alone sell one (which I had never done before). After a sit down meeting with Chayan he explained that the process though complicated and time sensitive is something that most families have to deal with and he would help manage that. This is something most Realtors would say. Chayan listed our home and within a week we had multiple offers. We sold the home so far over list price I thought I could literally afford a down payment on a second property. But this wasn't the end. We now needed to find a replacement home and this wasn't going to be easy, the clock was ticking. Chayan spent days, nights and weekends searching, previewing and sending me video walk through of homes he found while I was at work! Who does that. Who can go out of their way in this capacity. I am not sure I would even do it for my own wife yet alone someone else. At the time I thought perhaps it was overkill but in fact that speed of placing our offers in before the weekend rush saved us thousands as we were able to get in, negotiate and get into escrow before others had even seen the property. So in the End Chayan helped us sell our property for way more than we anticipated with multiple offers fighting for it, and on the buy he saved us thousands by negotiating before the typical buyers searching and offer cycle. I can never thank him enough and this review is a small gesture of my appreciation and gratitude. I am not the easiest person to work with. I think I asked Chayan 50 questions a day and he took the time and answered them carefully and with experience and examples of each way. He made sure he was not only satisfying the answer, but helping me learn and work with the different outcomes and possibilities of each scenario. When I sent Chayan homes that I had found on my own there was a detailed bullet line and description of more info that I was not able to locate on my own. He told me about the tax rates, location, its resell value and most importantly if it was priced right. He had a passion that is rare these days, but beyond that was just a true professional and a humble person. After the deal he became more than our realtor, he became our trusted guide and shined the path to places we were not comfortable exploring on our own. The only way to know for sure if a path is right for you is to take and follow the path all the way to the end. There are many paths to choose from and every decision everyday of one's life can lead further down a path or force you to back up. Chayan was there to guide us in so many ways that I felt almost helpless making any decision without his say. The first major path in home buying is most closely related to the American Dream. Chayan helped us with the dream, and this peace of mind, security and experience was an A++. Currently Chayan is working with our family friend whom we referred Chayan to. Our family friend took me to lunch as a thank you for the referral as they have spent the last 2 months working together and just like with us, hes clicking on all cylinders. Truly, and honestly thank you.

          Chayan was very knowledgeable and attentive to our real estate needs. He was extremely fast to respond with detail to any of our questions we had during the buying process. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great real estate agent!

          • Chayan helped me buy a home

              Chayan was a fantastic realtor. His knowledge about real estate really shines, in negotiations and contracts. I was impressed constantly with the timely responses and friendly service. What I wanted to share in my experience working with Chayan is his commitment to transparency. He stood up for us and told us when things didn't make sense and or were not in our best interest. Most realtors are looking for the sale and I could feel that it was different with Chayan. He told us even to wait a little while so the market conditions would be better. Wow how does a commission based person give it to you straight like this. As amazing as Chayan was I appreciated his team as well. We were surrounded by lenders, inspectors, Title and escrow hand picked by Chayan. This was the absolute best real estate experience we could of asked for. We have already referred Chayan to family and friends. A+!!! Thank you Chayan.

            • Chayan showed me homes

                This is one of my first reviews but I felt genuinely compelled to write one for our real estate agent. Hopefully this will be the first of many reviews for good and bad establishments as I am a big fan of yelp. Before we met Chayan we went through a couple real estate agents and had some bad luck. Not returning our calls in a timely manner (not within 24 hours), a lack of professionalism, just going through the motions when showing us homes, and finding us homes that didn't match any of our wants or needs. Thankfully a friend recommended Chayan to us and he has been the best. He was very personable, caring, and professional. He kept in contact with us, returned our calls in a timely manner....... and most importantly found us a great home (Thank you!!!! :)) that met all our wants and needs. Next home I sell or buy I will definitely use him as my agent.

                  Chayan is a consummate real estate professional with an AMAZING work ethic! He worked tirelessly to help my wife and I find a home all the way down in Mission Viejo. His understanding and expertise in real estate contracts and the entire process from negotiation through closing escrow gave us so much comfort and eased the tension of making our biggest purchase decision of our lives. We felt like quitting escrow every day just because it was such a big decision and we were admittedly very risk adverse, but Chayan kept us in-step and reassured. Today, we live in that beautiful home and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. THANK YOU CHAYAN!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
