My girlfriend and I recently purchased a with the help of Krikor and I can honestly say without him it would not have been possible! His work saved us time, money, stress and found us the we were hoping for. As first time home buyers, we had no knowledge of the home buying process, the market, or what it takes to get into a new home. Krikor made the process easier than I could have imaged. Shortly after we began looking for homes he was able to determine our goals and helped steer us away from red flags. He did not waste our time viewing properties we were not interested in. Throughout the process, he kept an line of communication and hit the pavement every day working to find the perfect home. He gave us access to online tools to allow us to search listings on our own, but he was always ahead of the game. Through his work, we were able to get our offer accepted for the we purchased against higher bidders. He was able to guide us through the home inspections and managed to save us money through his relationships with the inspection companies. He was an invaluable asset throughout the escrow process and he added a personal touch on the day that he handed us the keys to our first home. I recommend Krikor for anyone searching for a new property! - Matthew Barnhouse
Krikor is fantastic to work with. He really knows the ins and outs of the San Fernando valley and got me in a great spot. He knows what to look for in a quality home and what red flags are not to be ignored. He makes himself available basically 24/7. Highly recommend! - Tyler Keene
Krikor made both our home purchases a great experience and made this stressful process into something our family was able to enjoy. He has the ability to maintain a perfect balance between business and making sure that we are having fun through what is normally a strenuous time. At the end of the day, he got us exactly what we wanted, and most importantly, the way we wanted it. We’re forever grateful for all his hard work. - Crystal Marie Bairian
Home buying is a combination of joy, stress, anticipation, decisions, and lots of uncertainty and questions. I couldn't have asked for a better person than Krikor to handle all the above and so much more with professionalism, patience and kindness. Krikor was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of our transaction. He was prompt in his response, professional in dealing with everyone, and always looking out for the best for us. Our home buying process was made easier because of him and his work ethics. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone buying or selling a house. He's a gem! - Karineh Moradian
My wife and I entered the home buying process as total rookies to the game. I’d done my research as to what we should expect and tidbits on how to get the most out of the experience, but we both still had our reservations. It was at this point where Krikor came in and played the role of hero! He quickly made us feel at ease with his professional yet warm approach. What I actually appreciated most was his efficient yet thorough communication skills. I never felt like I was left in the dark, but was never burdened with superfluous amount of information throughout our search and escrow. He is the epitome of who you want handling the biggest purchase of your life. I can say with confidence that through this experience I found both a realtor and friend in Krikor. - Shant B.
I have worked with Krikor before and you cannot ask for much more. He is totally dedicated to finding what you want and, ultimately, making you happy. - John Nolan
Where do I start, Krikor helped me find my first house- Krikor is very knowledgable and helpful with first time homebuyers like myself. I had initially gone to another realtor and didn't find the service excellence I was looking for. Working in healthcare customer relations, I have a level of standard when it comes to customer service. Krikor really knows what he's doing, I can honestly say that I did the minimal during this whole home buying experience. He took care of EVERYTHING, even waiting in line at the city of Glendale to ensure permit copies were retained. I have already referred him to 4 of my friends and family, and will confidently say that Krikor is the realtor you want to do business with. - Allen Zaghikian
I have known Krikor for several years. Krikor is very knowledgeable and patient. He is passionate, enthusiastic to help and very understanding. He was always available to reach via text, email or phone call day and night. Krikor would work around my work schedule and kids’ schedule. Krikor is hands on realtor, answered all my questions and guided me in the right direction the entire home buying & loan process. He even called the City of LA! I had asked him about a sidewalk and tree question. Thought out the process he always kept us informed on the status of purchase and involved on clearing up doubts or worries. By October I was a HOMEOWNER! It was such a learning experience. I always felt Krikor was looking out for me and my family. It would have been a quicker process but I was trying to stay in Burbank and Krikor was so sympathetic of my needs and also worked with my loan requirements. I told him I needed a big kitchen and I GOT IT! A large backyard, I GOT IT! We are so happy with our first home! My Family and I are forever grateful and will always recommend Krikor for making our dream come true. I highly recommend him. He will always be my #1 realtor to call. Especially to all the first timers! Krikor will help you thru this experience and make it fun and unforgettable. - Richard and Jennifer Padilla
