What our customers are saying about us ... 

Haig Istamboulian took the time to understand us as a buyer. He listened to what was important for us to find in a home, offered his suggestions and insight into neighborhoods, and guided us in a positive direction. Once we found the property we were interested in, Haig provided valuable information regarding  real estate comps so we could make a strong quality offer. Throughout the entire contract process Haig was quick to respond, and work with us to secure the deal. I would absolutely recommend Haig to my family and friends. He is an expert in his craft, and a great resource! 


Big shout out to Amy Bunch!  If you need a realtor, she is highly recommended.  She helped us find our next home and sold our current home in one quick weekend, actually a little less! She is hard working and very responsive.  Thank-you Amy, you have made a very stressful event as smooth as possible!!!

I have worked with Karen Dafoe on several transactions. She is always very friendly, courteous and extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented. She was also very patient in showing us many houses until we finally found the one we chose to purchase. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to  work with a true professional.

Haig Istamboulian did an awesome job as our realtor, we really felt that we had someone "in our corner" negotiating for us! He is very knowledgeable and comes to the showing prepared with data and information that a buyer wants and needs when taking the step towards purchasing a home. He negotiated the price  down for us to a surprising number and kept us informed every step of the way! 


Buying and Selling a house is complicated and is something we have only done once before -- having Karen Dafoe help guide, advise and really look out for our best interests was very much appreciated. Her expertise saved us time and money. She made us feel like we were her only client :) We  respected her planning and advance look ahead that helped us make sure everything went as smoothly as possible -- she was always calm, professional and creative with negotiations -- ideas that would never have occurred to us opened doors and possibilities.


Amy Bunch is by far the BEST realtor we have ever had!  She worked day and night to find us our dream home.  She showed us homes every Friday and Saturday night until we found exactly what we wanted, and more!  We can't thank her enough for everything she has done for us and we will continue to refer her to everyone we know!

Home buying is a stressful situation and Haig Istamboulian alleviated all of mine! We were from out of state and he really helped us with his extensive knowledge on the areas and neighborhoods to find our dream home. Haig pays close attention to his clients needs and wants. 


Closed on our home today. Selling was WAY less stressful than buying! Couldn't have done it without our agent Nikki Trombley. Her professionalism was insightful and reassuring every step of the way. You would be silly not to consider her services when listing or buying your next home!

Karen Dafoe was extremely helpful to me when I needed a broker to sell my mother's condo. She recommended various service providers to use for repairs, carpet cleaning, etc. which was appreciated since I didn't live in the area and didn't know who I could trust to do a good job. Karen even helped me pack up some of the clothes in the closets and she and her son Nick came over to help load heavy items into my van. She was always available to answer any questions or to offer advice and made the process of selling the condo much easier for me. She sold the condo quickly to a couple on the fifth showing. I highly recommend Karen to anyone in need of a real estate broker.

We have used Nikki Trombley to sell our home previously and just used her again to buy a home. Her communication skills are phenomenal, always reachable and returns calls very promptly. We have used other realtors in the past, but communication can be an issue. In addition, she was accommodating to our busy schedule. We would recommend Nikki without hesitation.

I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to work with than Nikki Trombley! She was so great with helping us find our 1st home.

Amy Bunch came to my home within 24 hours of my initial call.  Together we came up with a sale plan.  The next day Amy came by and took awesome pictures with her snazzy camera.  I could not have taken pictures as glamorous as Amy did!  I truly believe that with those photos, along with Amy's sales skills, pushed the sale of my property out the door.  I had an offer within 2 weeks.  It doesn't get better than that!
