Jonathan is an excellent agent! He understands my needs and finds the right properties for me. He provides an analysis of costs, return and potential appreciation. He is a strong negotiator. He fascilitates the escrow process by sending documents for signature in advance of escrow, answering any questions and he also helps with finding a renter for my properties.

As first time home buyers, simply stated: We were horrified by the process. Thankfully, we found Jonathan to guide us through the journey. With the knowledge, patience, and flexibility to support us in moving forward, Jonathan helped us to gain the confidence we needed to pull the trigger and purchase the starter home of our dreams (which he found based on our VERY specific needs). He provided us with thorough and clear answers to any questions that we had and sought out information when he didnít know. We were well informed every step of the way and felt like we were in good hands - and as it turns out, we were! The entire experience was surprisingly smooth, and we look forward to working with Jonathan again soon.

We worked with Jonathan for nearly a year in search for our dream home. He understood what we needed and presented us with many homes meeting our criteria. We spent many weekend with him viewing homes. Throughout the whole process, he was professional and extremely patient. He answered our questions with confidence & never gave up. With his help we did end up finding our dream home. With his help we eventually did finally find our dream home & we are very grateful to him for that. Jonathan also helped us in the sale of our previous home. I never thought the process would be so smooth, but thanks to Jonathan, it truly was. He had a seller right away and took care of all the paperwork. He was amazing in both purchase of our new home & sale of our old home. He will be our agent for life.

First of all, I am very picky and skeptical person as I've worked as a business strategist. I changed 3 realtors for exploring and dealing houses before meeting him. Jonathan is very patient and faithful. Whenever I call him, he was ready to listen and solve any problem. His responsibility and professionalism made me and my husband to leave all that to him. Jonathan did great at all of our request even that was very difficult. We were very happy to meet him. We will definitely work with him for another purchases or sales. And we will highly recommend him to our family and friends without reservation. If you got Jonathan, you are already lucky!

We thought the short-selling process was going to be painful and frustrating but Jonathan knew exactly what he was doing and made the process very easy for us. Through his diligence and persistence we had a number of buyers within days of listing the property and the process was under way very quickly. Although the bank firmly held their ground and refused to budge at first, Jonathan's negotiation skills paid of and a deal was quickly struck. Throughout the process he was able to answer all our questions and kept us calm and collected through it all. We feel fortunate to have had him handle our sale and would recommend him to anyone who looking for an honest agent that will fight for you.

Jonathan is quite simply the best equipped to handle real estate transactions. I have always used Jonathan for all of my real estate needs and will continue to do so. Whether it was buying a primary residence or investment property or renting, his execution has been flawless. For my most recent transaction, his knowledge and experience were critical in challenging appraisals lagging the market. He also successfully negotiated favorable terms throughout the entire process and carefully managed all parties involved in what proved to be a difficult and delicate transaction. His contacts ranging from mortgage lenders to contractors also proved invaluable. Real estate deals are never easy or straightforward but Jonathan will sure make it look that way.

Jonathan is the best broker I've worked with. His knowledge of the real estate market and broker networks were key in completing our transaction successfully. His experience with our particular market and relationships with seller's agent, mortgage brokers, negotiations, etc were critical in buying our home as efficiently as possible. His overall service, professionalism and commitment are outstanding.

I've worked with Jonathan for several years on several purchases. But from the first purchase to now, he has always provided excellent assistance as my agent. He will work to make sure your goal is achieved. My purchases have generally been challenging (multiple offers and other issues) and Jonathan is able to work through those challenges to maximize the chance of success, and correctly evaluating what my chances are based on how much I want to pay (and other offer terms). Sometimes I don't want to pay more, but Jonathan tells me the chances. So I know going in. If you're looking for someone to represent your interest, tell you your realistic chances, and then work to maximize the chance, then Jonathan is a strong choice.

He knows the neighborhoods, schools and market trends in the areas we were interested and helped us find a home where we will be able to help our children grow with great school districts. I would not hesitate to provide Jonathan's contact information to anyone who is interested in finding a great home in Valencia / Santa Clarita Valley.

This is the second time we are using Jonathan. He is very knowledgeable and understands how to work with overseas investors. The process required many technical and mandatory hurdles, but he explained in detail and hand held the buyer through the process. His professionalism helped save the transaction from failing through his intense and skilled negotiatons with the seller, lender, and escrow. He is very trustworthy, and I plan to use him again for several additional properties. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

Jonathan is a wonderful realtor. He lined up the exact type of houses that I wanted on the water. He found the first house based on my need and budget. We easily came to trust in his opinions and advice and a nice house in great neighborhood was quickly purchased was our reward! Through Jonathan's expertise, we were able to buy short sale house closed within a month. He was diligent in negotiating on my behalf and made sure that I was informed of each step along the way. We could not have had a better experience. And, this was during recent times when the housing market was very poor and short sale is very tiring. Jonathan has great experience and instinctively knows what to do and how to move a property. He helped us out every step of the way. He also recommended an excellent insurance carrier, mortgage broker and house inspector; He knows everyone in town and is fun to work with. He will look after your needs in a professional manner and is very responsive. In addition to a high level of self-confidence and professionalism, He has a great personality and was fun to work with. I recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling - I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Even after our house has closed for few months but he is always readily available for any issues or questions. Jonathan makes your sell/purchase stress free! I give him the highest recommendation.

Jonathan is a thorough professional. From the time that we first met Jonathan to when we closed the house, he had this air of confidence that made us feel extremely comfortable that we are in good hands. Within a few weeks of working with him, he figured out exactly what kind of property we were looking for and showed us one that we instantly liked. It was a short sale that was going into foreclosure. Jonathan walked us through the process and also worked with the seller's agent and bank to make sure we have a strong case. We ended up paying the short sale price and got a 3% cashback from the seller towards closing - enabling us to close with just the downpayment. Just after putting the offer, we had to take an international trip for a month and that left us wondering how we would close on the house when we are traveling. Jonathan made it extremely easy on us by organizing all the paperwork in advance, getting the inspection done before we left and following up with us during the whole month to make sure we got all the paperwork ready and on time. We went directly to the escrow office on returning and signed all the paperwork. We couldn't have closed on this house given our constraints if not for Jonathan's diligence. We would recommend him strongly for all of your real estate needs!

Jonathan is a great agent and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. As a first time buyer, I needed a safe pair of hands to help guide me through the process. Jonathan is responsive, professional and trustworthy and I look forward to working with him on future deals.

Jonathan met and exceeded all of our expectations. We interviewed him and other realtors before going out to view properties. We were impressed with his quick response to our initial inquiry, and then by his knowledge and professionalism when we began looking at properties. We were searching for an investment property from out of town and we had very limited time. He understood our needs and made it happen. He provided honest, knowledge-based advice about specific properties and neighborhoods. When we ran into the usual glitches associated with real estate transactions, which sometimes can kill a deal, he managed them with skill and got the deal done. We truly cannot say enough good things about Jonathan. He is knowledgeable, professional, and ethical. He has or knows how to obtain the information you need, how to work with sellers and buyers, and how to negotiate. He works closely with loan professionals who are also trustworthy and skilled, and I recommend you check his resources in this area before choosing your financing source. Bottom line: don't bother going to anyone else if you are shopping for property in Jonathan's area.

Jonathan was a great help. There were many people interested in the property that we bought. Without his expertise and experience, we would have lost out on the property.
