"The home buying process can be extremely stressful. The market is currently crazy and Ivan has done nothing but hustle to make sure that our family has all of the information that we need to make the best decision as buyers. He's quick to respond to my phone calls, emails and text messages and always professional. He is a true relationship builder when working with other realtors and lenders and that has made the negotiation process less stressful. He would be an asset to any family looking for their dream home in the triangle area!" - Kristin

"When we first started looking for houses, Ivan was the first realtor we met at an Open House. We clicked with him instantly and were impressed with his knowledge of the market. When we finally sold our house in Illinois and were ready to buy here, we went to Ivan to help out. He immediately set us up with all of the apps and websites that we could collaborate on. Before we even got to meet again, we found the house that we wanted and Ivan went straight to work making sure we were going to get it. It wasn’t easy at all, because another agent was interested and we had a brief scare, but Ivan did NOT let us down! He stayed up working on our contract until 11:00 that night making sure to get our info to the builder and selling agent. By 8:15 the next morning, the house was ours 😊 Not only is Ivan an amazing realtor, he has also become a lifelong friend of ours and I am so thankful for that!" - Dawn

"One of the nicest, professional realtors I have ever met. Very helpful on getting information on houses up for market as quick and efficient as possible. He really helped me get preapproved for a home when it was a challenge to get done in the past for me, and someone who is very knowledgeable, passionate about his job definitely helped me on learning on what the process is on being a home owner for the first time. I would highly recommend Ivan to anyone in the market for a home, he will not disappoint you." - Ryan

"I have known this perfectionist for almost 30 years so when it came to selecting an agent who could assist my family with selling my newly deceased father's house, I knew there was only one person(Ivan) who was caring, sensitive and an utmost professional. From day one, Ivan stepped in and took charge of a stressful situation without ever leaving us out of the decision making process or making us feel inadequate. He made it a point to make sure we understood the entire sales process from beginning to end. He came with a well thought out plan but always left it in our hands to make the final decisions on how we wanted to sell our fathers house. There are so many small but important details involved with selling a home. I would lose track of details (at times) but Ivan never let anything slip by. He made sure every I had a dot and that every T was crossed, to the Nth degree. Yes he is the expert but it always felt like we were working WITH A PARTNER, and not in a business arrangement. Ivan is so in tune with the market that he predicted that our first offer would most likely be our best offer and sure enough he was correct. If you want the job done right, Ivan is your man"

"Not often in life do we have the good fortune to meet someone who we connect with in an instant, and know immediately that we will be able to work with them and build a meaningful and lasting connection for a long time to come. My wife Liz and I had a chance meeting with Ivan at the Wendell development on our first visit to Raleigh. We spoke briefly and soon we were deep into the conversation about our home buying needs and more. Ivan is a great agent and now a treasured friend. We got the best deal, a beautiful home and a great friend to boot. Ivan's patience to show us the area and help us select our new home was tested a few times, but he was always respectful of our choices, need for space when we needed to discuss our options, and reassuring when we got flustered in the process. And if that wasn't enough, we got two for the price of one. Ivan's teammate Tina was available to us for added support and as a resource whenever we needed or when Ivan took a deserved break/holiday. I highly recommend Ivan and Tina to anyone looking for a caring professionals to guide their property purchase decisions in the Raleigh-Durham area."
