About Arn

“Arn is a fantastic realtor. Arn helped us sell our prior home in a competitive buyer’s market, and then helped find our new home in a very short period of time. Needless to say, it was a  very stressful and hectic time for us. Arn was always available, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to work with throughout the process. More than anything else, we trusted him. It didn’t hurt that he had a great sense of humor and was fun to be around. We would definitely recommend Arn as a realtor, and we’re glad he’s become our friend.”

“Arn helped us complete the deal on our self-directed IRA real estate transaction. It was our first such purchase and it closed within 3 weeks! He has a broad network of colleagues and business acquaintances that has assisted us in many other matters. Arn is like the proverbial ‘guy next door’ who is always available when you need him.”

“Arn was an absolute pleasure to work with. His expertise and attentiveness complement his intricate understanding of the market. He is always calm and confident with an easygoing demeanor and demonstrated extraordinary patience. Nothing seems to faze him, yet there is a steely resolve and purpose to his endeavors. I give him my unqualified highest recommendation.”

“We bought our first home in October 2008. Arn is a knowledgeable expert in real estate. We worked with Arn for several months, and we have been to more than 100 open houses. We think ourselves as picky buyers, who had a lot of requirements, and not easy to be satisfied, but Arn could always give us more insight about the local market especially during the economic down turn. Also, he has a lot of resources, connections, and friends, which really helped us through the whole home buying process. Our home buying experience could not be happier without Arn.”

“Arn has a very mellow demeanor but under that is a Type-A person who gets the job done sparing you the hassles and heartaches. Arn sold the house I had in partnership with an old friend
who was getting married and moving out of the area. We gave Arn certain criteria that had to be met to satisfy both of our future needs. Arn came through in flying colors with such ease it didn’t seem to really occur. Next he went about to get my new home. He introduced me to a top-of-the-line financial officer to get pre-qualified so he could get me the best deal possible. Because of his efficiency, I was qualified for a loan, put in a bid on a wonderful house (it met all on my want list), and won out over the other offers in a span of one week! Who says there aren’t fairy tale happy endings any more. Arn will do his best for his clients, this I am sure of. He anticipates and knows the business inside out. You could not ask for more in an agent, Arn is the best.”

“Arn is a consummate professional. Linda and I have come to appreciate there are many aspects to this. He is a straight shooter, and we have complete confidence in his integrity. He is extremely skilled at communicating, preparing, presenting, and negotiating. But most important is that we always felt he was absolutely committed to finding and landing the right house for us. This time around (our 2nd purchase with Arn) we were demanding clients, with many requirements on our wish list that made it hard to find just the right house. During the process we both had moments of being frustrated, and during those times we relied on Arn’s steadiness, good humor and energy to carry us forward. Arn is very generous with his time and attention. If and when we outgrow on new house, we’re looking forward to working with Arn again.”

“From first meeting to the final signing, you were a true professional: you were straightforward in answering our questions; provided valuable insight while keeping me informed and most importantly, brought the sale to an effortless closure”.

“I have known Arn for over 10 years. I first met Arn with I purchased my first home, a condominium, and we have kept in contact over the years. I knew that when I was ready to purchase a new home, I would be using Arn. He always impressed me with his professionalism, knowledge and patience. He has a relaxed no pressure approach which I found most refreshing during my search for a new home. He provided me with countless listings via emails and provided numerous tours of selected homes and hunted down various listings. His patience and attitude provided me with peace of mind and time to find the ideal home in a challenging market.”
