In today’s dog-eat-dog Real Estate environment you’d expect one of the top ranked Realtors in Los Angeles County to be a cold-hearted, calculating, selfish individual out to serve no one other than herself. As a general rule, that’s often a pretty accurate description. But to every rule there is an exception, and the resounding exception here is Elvin Apelian.
Elvin epitomizes uncompromising integrity, heartfelt honesty, an encyclopedic knowledge of Real Estate, dedication to her clients, and an uncanny talent for savvy negotiations that consistently benefits her clients. “I love watching their (the clients) faces when they discover they’re receiving more for their home than they expected”, Elvin said excitedly.
A resident of Burbank since 2006, Elvin has made it her responsibility to learn everything there is to know about the Burbank community and its adjacent neighbors. Again, one more reason Elvin Apelian is a Real Estate superstar. She received her bachelor’s degree in Accounting from California State University of Northridge in 2001. Elvin knew a solid understanding of finances and the financial world would be extremely beneficial as a Realtor. Now, well over a decade later, Elvin has created an outstanding reputation for herself as a tenacious protector of her clients’ interests, and in doing so built a Real Estate career where accolades and testimonials abound. Elvin smiled, saying, “Of course I enjoy praise, but nothing is as satisfying as watching your clients turn the key in the front door of the home they never really believed they‘d own.” “Sure! I’ve worked every aspect of Real Estate, from representing sellers, to buyers, to residential investors throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. If it deals with residential Real Estate, I’ve done it.”
Elvin’s Real Estate acumen is above reproach, but there’s much more to Elvin than her highly skilled abilities. She is a caring, considerate, sincerely genuine person with an ever-present charming personality and eyes that sparkle whenever she talks about her children.
Obviously Elvin is exceptionally well respected in the industry, not only for her unparalleled professional track record and high ethical standards, but also for being an honest, hard working Realtor who does absolutely everything in her power to ensure her clients successful transactions. Known for her foresight, which allows her to proactively address transaction details before they become a problem, Elvin is always one step ahead of the pitfalls that so often debilitate most Realtors. She is unquestionably a very special Realtor. But Elvin is much more than just a Realtor. She’s dedicated her life to helping people. Elvin unselfishly donates in-and-around 10% of her own hard earned commissions to the non-profit or charity of her client's choice, or often to a family in need.
Elvin, were you born to be a Realtor? “No, I don’t think I was born to be a Realtor. But I do believe it’s my obligation as a person to help as many people as I can. And I know I can help a lot of people as long as I work hard to be the best Realtor I can be.“

There are wide array of benefits for buying real property. From social to economic, and even political, benefits of owning real property can't be easily counted. Real property offers an anchorage to family geographic zoning. Owners enjoy the benefits of forming closer connections with their community, through local businesses, schools, worship places and neighbors.
As always, economic benefit is a good starting point. Did you know that by paying $900/month rent you are throwing away $54,000? Yes, rent is a waste of money. Rent can't be even claimed in tax returns. In contrast, monthly payments towards mortgage payment plan will expand homeowners' wealth as equity is created. Moreover, buying a real property increases credit rating through regular payment history and location security. Even more, real property buyers can claim interest in their yearly tax returns (consult a tax expert for more details).
On the political level, homeowners exercise more influence on political decision makers. Because most county and state profits are based on real property taxes, politicians answer demands of property owners before renters (who are usually relocating). For example, when the financial crisis struck the U.S. markets in middle of 2007, the federal government quickly enacted laws to protect property owners. The same issue played a crucial role in 2008 Presidential elections.
In addition to economic and political benefits, real property buyers enjoy better social standings. Because property owners are more constraint to move, they form social networks with their local community. Neighbors invite each other for birthdays and other events. Housewives form local groups to help raise the children of the community. Even in safety, most communities utilize local neighborhood watches to keep crime level at a low level.
Finally, by buying a real property, individuals achieve the American Dream. Thanks to the U.S. government system, ownership rights are at the foundational core of the United States. A sense of accomplishment and satisfaction beholds property owners as they are free to express themselves within their own castles. Buying real property is as simple as desires of potential buyers.This information is an estimate and for research purposes only. The estimate is based on prevailing rates typical in the industry and your own input concerning salary and assets, which JohnHart has no way of verifying. The estimate does not purport to include every potential expense involved in purchasing a home (including but not limited to taxes and HOA fees) which can vary widely by property and location. Neither JohnHart nor any of its affiliates make any warranties or guarantees in any way about the likelihood of obtaining a loan for a house and on what terms (if at all) a prospective buyer may be able to obtain a loan. Prospective buyers must consult a lender for qualification and for terms of qualification according to a buyer’s financial situation at the time and the property sought.
