Tell us about your experience with Yoav Astman
Yoav was amazing!!! He sold our house in just 3 short weeks and the process could not have gone any smoother. He was always available, always excited to answer all our questions and understood all of our needs throughout the process. He was pleasant to spend time with and we loved his honesty. Can't wait for him to find us our new home! Highly, highly recommend him!- Erica L.
We knew that buying and selling a house can be a difficult process to say the least, so finding a realtor who was going to be there from start to finish, be available, and know what the appropriate moves would be, was crucial. Yoav was exceptional in his attention to our concerns, strategy to write competitive and appropriate offers and made himself available to us whenever we had a question. We are so happy that we found Yoav and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.- Natasha G.
My experience with Yoav Astman was outstanding. We were looking for an investment property in the Woodland Hills area. His knowledge and expertise made us feel real comfortable throughout the entire process. We look forward to working with him again on our next investment and encourage you to consider him as an agent to represent you on a real estate transaction.- Jordan D.
Just purchased our 2nd home with Yoav within a year and we couldn't be happier! So easy to work with, answered our calls at all hours of the day, smooth transaction and took care of all the bumps in the process quickly and thoroughly. Working with him was great! He managed to get us our first home together even after we came in the lowest of 4 offers. He is a true professional!- Monique R.
Yoav helped us to get our first house and we can't thank him enough for such an easy and smooth process. My husband and I heard stories that to find a perfect house for your budget may take over 6 month and you may put multiple offers and still don't get a house you want. Not in our case. We found our dream home in less then 2 month, thanks to Yoav always being available, consulting us on what is a better and smarter choice and what not worth wasting a time. He knows his areas like no one else. Yoav is knowledgeable, professional and very pleasant to work with. When time came to put an offer on the house we loved, we were afraid we will get over bit due to the house being on the highest range of our budget. And it did happen. However, Yoav gave us some grate advises and we got our house!!! Can't be more happier. In love with our new house Thank you Yoav!!!- Yana T.
We met Yoav Astman under unusual emotional circumstances after a not nice situation with another realtor. He rescued us and became our agent. (Special thank you to his wife and partner, Jackie). Within two days he showed us our new house. We only knew about this house because of his relationship with a realtor who was the seller. We bought it in 48 hours. He listed our home to sell and it was a done deal before the official open house. Those are special instances... I know. He is an excellent communicator. He knows his business. He followed through and returned every phone call and every text and email. He is always professional and friendly. He is a very nice person. He was always on time, too. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOAV.- Carol G.
Yoav provided all of the guidance that made the sell of our home painless. The results speak for themselves; happy seller, happy buyer, and above asking. He knows the market well, and went above and beyond our expectations. We felt that Yoav provided valuable insight on getting the house ready for sale, the negotiation process, and closing the transaction.- Cameron R.
Yoav helped my wife and I sell our home in Calabasas. We all know you're lucky if you find a realtor who's enthusiastic, well prepared, willing to work hard and knows the market. You hit the jackpot when you run into a truly savvy business person with integrity like Yoav Astman. I structure large scale business deals and negotiate contracts for a living, so it's little surprise I've been underwhelmed with realtors I've worked with in the past. Yoav treated our single family residence with the expertise I'd see on a multimillion dollar corporate acquisition. We'd met Yoav several years prior at an open house for he and his wife's personal listing and we'd been so impressed by his sense of style and reserved professionalism, we called him when it was time to sell. He proposed a solid strategy and efficient execution strategy that made him a clear choice as our agent. It was a hot market with limited inventory, so he could have easily listed and waited for the house to sell itself, but instead he connected us with a contractor and recommended upgrades that would add meaningful value for every dollar we invested. He offered shrewd advice on staging, produced a professional video, high quality marketing materials that spared no expense, and amazing photographs that unlike most of our comps, didn't distort the space with a wide angle lens clearly intended to deceive the buyer.The sale went very well-he brought in multiple offers, all above asking price, and surgically executed the entire transaction all the way through escrow. Throughout the whole process I felt like Yoav had our back and he even caught a couple things that I missed, saving us a bunch of money. I felt like Yoav knew what was going on at all times in the closing process, so I was confident he wasn't going to let us miss any deadlines and was completely on top of any potential red flags. We even ended up closing a few days early.I couldn't recommend Yoav enough for anyone looking for some peace of mind and top value when selling or buying a home!- David D.
Yoav does an amazing Job. His customer service and professionalism really sets him apart. I enjoyed working with him and his team. They always answered my calls and responded super fast to text and email. Yoav is an expert in his field.- Joseph Cordova
Working with Yoav Astman was a wonderful experience!!! As first time home buyers we felt comfortable with him from the get go. He was very patient and took time away from his schedule to answer all of our questions without any hesitation -- no matter what time we called him, day or night! I would highly recommend working with Yoav. He is an expert in real estate and has a pleasant demeanor, which is rare to find in the industry. He took deep interest in truly understanding our needs. Yoav A.- Mike Novak
Yoav is a tremendous person and real estate agent!! I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone. He is hard working, patient and kind. He was able to know exactly what I was looking for and persistently helped me even though the parameters of what I was looking for was difficult. He calmly walked me through the entire process of purchasing my new home. I absolutely love my new home :) I look forward to working with him again in the future when we are ready to sell our other house down the road.- Aileen Chen
Yoav is the best! Thanks to him we received multiple offers less than a week after listing, and sold our townhouse for over asking price. He also helped us to buy an amazing house for a great price, and was patient and helpful during the entire process. Yoav was great at listening to what we wanted, but also made sure to manage our expectations. He was professional and friendly and easy to work with, and quickly responded to our many emails and texts. I hope to never buy or sell a house ever again, but if I do, Yoav will be the first person I call.- Sue Jean Woodmansee
Share reviewComplimentSend messageFollow Martha M.5.0 star rating 2/8/2016Yoav was amazing, and I don't say that lightly. He was there every step of the way- providing information, advice, and recommendations to make sure our interests were protected and our concerns were addressed. As a Realtor moving from another country, I really appreciated his level of service. I highly recommend Yoav to anyone looking for a Realtor.- Martha Marton
Yoav did a great job for us! My wife and I were very pleased with his professionalism and attention to detail. The buyers for our house came in with multiple inspectors and contractors looking to gain a discounted price. I am a builder and felt that their actions were unwarranted and nothing more than a ploy to reduce the price. Yoav told me he would take care of it and did so to everyone's satisfaction. Couldn't have asked for a better agent. Looking forward to working with Yoav on the purchase of our new home. Recommend him highly- David Tuggey
Thanks to Yoav, my family and I were able to buy an amazing house for a great price. This wasn't our first rodeo, and we've worked with other realtors in the past, but none would have been able to do what Yoav could. Yoav helped us narrow down our search areas without trying to rush us through the process. He sent out mailings to those target areas, and we were able to see homes that we didn't even know were listed. Never once did he push us to make an offer on something that we weren't comfortable with. But most importantly his negotiation skills are second to none. We ended up buying our $1.35 million dollar house for $250,000 below the original list price! You can be sure that we are never working with any other realtor even again. Yoav is the man!- Gary Minevich
He is the most responsible and reliable agent I have ever worked. He knows his job very well and protects all your rights and makes sure everything is done properly. He is easy to reach out and always available to respond messages. He really cares about his clients and makes sure you are totally satisfied. Also I should mention that he is so informative and explains every concept that you are not familiar with; I was a first buyer and he explained every single confusion that I was faced with. 100% recommended. Great purchase.- Mike Pezeshki
I've worked with Yoav on multiple transactions, and can say that his professionalism, character, and real estate knowledge are superb. His ability to guide a buyer/seller smoothly through their largest purchase/sale are what make him a successful agent and great person to work with. I look forward to working with him for years to come!- Shayan Ali
I do not have enough words to describe how fortunate I was working with Yoav Astman! About 3 years ago I decided to buy for a property and was working with different agent. My first agent was very pushing, scaring me and convincing to buy a property that I was not happy about. I ended up buying nothing. A year ago I decided to shop for a property again. Having a bad experience I went to Yelp and after long search I found Yoav. He had about 10 reviews all 5 stars. I was skeptical at first, but decided to call him. I said that I found a couple of condos that I would like to check out, but I did not have a loan pre-approval letter, not even a loan officer at that time, and was not even sure what loan amount I can get, only my rough estimate. I called a few other agents before Yoav and I was expecting to hear "no" again. But Yoav told me that he can show both properties within an hour. He also showed me couple of other condos to get a better idea about current market prices. Then he referred me to a loan officer - Shayan Ali (who was great!!!). Yoav started showing me different properties while I was working on loan application. He was very patient. Several times I had a problem with my car and Yoav picked me up and drive me to the property. My loan amount was no high, but my expectation were big. Yoav did not try to push me for anything. Opposite, he was advising me about remodeling cost and described main issues with properties. It took a year to find a good condo in my price range and Yoav did a LOT to make it happened!!! The seller's agent was not answering the phone calls, several time provided false information. Yoav helped me to fill out all the documents, he even called HOA to find out several details for me. Yoav also helped me to lower some escrow fees and told me if I will have any issues with the property I can contact him with any questions! Three days before the closing date we found out that escrow did not transfer the money on time and we have to wait one more day to close the deal, but I've already scheduled a moving company, Time Warner company and had to move out from my old apartment. Yoav was able to negotiate with the seller and they let me in before getting a final "OK" from the escrow. What an amazing service!!! Yoav was more like a good friend who really care about you, not just a real estate agent. Highly knowledgeable in his area, polite and respectful as a person.When I will be ready to buy a new house, I am definitely come back to Yoav. In my opinion, he is the best agent ever. If I could've give him a thousand stars for his services, I would. Thank you very much, Yoav, for everything you did for me! I really appreciate your help!!!- Elena Semenek
Yoav was very friendly, responsive and professional. He went above and beyond the call of duty many times during the process. He answered all of my questions, no matter how small or silly. He was always on time. He worked with my schedule. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone.- Peter LeClair
Yoav Astman was our listing agent for our home in the Oaks of Calabasas. He represented this very expensive property with great skill and expertise on many levels. He advertised our property on real estate web sites, created a virtual video tour of the property and held broker open houses. These brought multiple offers quickly and he was able to negotiate a great price for our home.After the property was in escrow he continued to direct the deal through all phases with great skill and professionalism. He worked tirelessly to complete the transaction with no stress to us. He went above and beyond the usual expectations of an agent. He dealt with the original home builder, the buyer's extraordinary requests, and met with multiple service providers so that we were never inconvenienced. We highly recommend Yoav Astman.- Lisa Gale
My family and I have been living in our new home for a few weeks now and we could not be any happier. While searching for a home can be overwhelming, Yoav made the process much easier and was there for us every step of the way. We had very specific items that we were looking for and most importantly the location we wanted our kids to grow up in. At the very beginning of our home search, Yoav told us that he will find the perfect home for our family and that he did. He was always available with every home we wanted to see and was responsive with every question we had and would not let us compromise with what we originally set out to find. When we found that perfect home, Yoav was able to get our offer accepted. We moved in just in time for the holidays and I'm looking forward to celebrating the New Year in our new home and I'm so thankful to Yoav for making that happen.- Patty Galvez
Working with Yoav was truly a pleasure. He was professional, knowledgeable and shared his opinions and suggestions without being forceful or pushy. I really appreciated that he was always available either through phone or email, and in the rare instances that he was unable to talk, Yoav made sure to let me know that he would be in touch as soon as possible - and he was. I appreciated the time he took to carefully explain every part of this detailed and complicated process to me as a seller...even when I asked the same questions in different ways or if I was confused about something, regardless of what it was. We encountered a few small hurdles during the sale, however Yoav never gave up and he didn't allow me to either. He reminded me on several occasions of the need to make a deal with the right buyer and at the right price. At first this probably seems obvious, but as a seller one has certain expectations - and it's the job of the realtor to mediate and manage those expectations in order to yield a positive and realistic outcome. Yoav did just that. He was always genuine, patient and confident, which greatly influenced my attitude and allowed me to do the same. I would highly HIGHLY recommend Yoav to anyone looking for a real estate agent. You will certainly enjoy working with him and more importantly, he will get the job done (and done right!!!) for you.- Sabrina Vinterfeld
As a first time homebuyer, I was very reluctant through the home search process. I did not know what the right home was and felt like I would drive my agent crazy. Yoav made the home buying process so easy for me. When I was reluctant, he provided reassurance. When I wanted to put out offers because I was simply frustrated, he told me not worry and to take my time, reminding me its about finding the RIGHT home. I cant begin to express how supportive Yoav was to work with. Every step of the way he had my best interest at heart. You dont just get a great agent with Yoav, you get a great guy. Thank you Yoav for helping me find and buy my first home!! Side note: my home appraised for $10k more than purchased for and I got a $7k credit.- Leeron Hever
Yoav was our buying agent. My wife and I were new to this area but had an idea of what we wanted in our home.It took only a few viewings before we found the perfect house. Yoav showed patience and insight in negotiating a price for us. He even held back at our suggestion to offer more if needed. It proved to be the right strategy!The process of purchasing the home was complicated by many miscommunications with our lender. Yoav went far beyond what he needed to do by staying on top of things after a deal was made. He kept in touch with lender, escrow company, seller (and their real estate agent) and assured that all deadlines were met according to plan. Yoav is always approachable, either by phone, text or email. He never failed to respond to either of us in a very timely fashion. In addition to having been an effective professional it was also a pleasure to work with Yoav. He is calm, friendly, relaxed and gives a sense of wanting to do all he can to make his clients happy.If we were to buy a home in the same area in the future we would certainly ask him to be our agent again. We highly recommend him!- EJ Slingberger
