Happy Clients

John surpassed our expectation in every ascot of the selling process. His attention to detail and negotiation skills definitely helped us as sellers. I would definitely recommend John as your agent. 


I am writing to let you know what a fabulous agent you have in your midst! I just completed a very difficult escrow with John Tashtchian and have to say he is truly top notch!
I initially contacted him over 2 years ago and we started the process to sell the unit I owed with my ex husband and a dear friend who had recently died. His wife wanted to sell it so we started the process.
Before we got too far down the path John determined that the property was still in our friends name, and we learned that he had not put the property into his trust, so we had to go thru probate and get the property into his wife's name before we could proceed.
Well two years later during which John stayed in contact with me and continued to reach out to see what was going on and whether he could be of any help we finally were able to get the ball rolling. John worked closely with me establishing the strategy for selling the unit and in less than a week had multiple offers at above our asking process. After discussion and some negotiations we had selected a potential buyer whose agent turned out to be quite difficult. So once again John took lead and pushed back when necessary and negotiated successfully when it was called for. All in all he represented all three of us (again not easy as you can imagine dealing with 3 sellers all on title) with the utmost professionalism and incredible skill.
His responsiveness to our phone calls, texts and emails was incredible. It was as if all he was waiting for our message. He always seemed to respond in record time yet I know he was constantly bouncing multiple balls with other sellers and buyers.He always made us feel like we were his most important client yet I know he had many that were far more important in terms of the dollar value of the deal.
I have bought and sold many properties over the years in Pacific Palisades, Manhattan Beach, Marina del Rey and Santa Monica. I have dealt with multiple realtors and can say John is definitely the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I hope our paths cross again since I know of no one who can better represent their client in a real estate transaction.
Feel free to reach out to me if you would like any additional information. I can not say enough about his skill, temperament, follow thru and professionalism. He is incredible.


I want you to know what an incredible asset you have in John Tashtchian both as a knowledgeable real estate agent and, more importantly, as a person. He has shepherded myself, Betsy and Gerry through the complicated sale of 18645 Hatteras Street, #263, Tarzana, CA, which was replete with challenges of title, history, etc. in the most gentlemanly and patient way.
Long after this transaction has past (it was finalized today), I will remember John’s ability to convey integrity, authenticity and a true sense of friendship during the entire process which I find remarkable in today’s world. Please acknowledge John’s ability to put people before profits because, in the end, business is really about relationships, don’t you think?


You can trust John not only as a realtor but a a partner to succeed. I closed on my house recently and John has helped me way beyond expectations in the process and even after.
