Because we offer: Human Pricing.
Since a computer will never know if a property sold for a high price because it was marketed well or if another sold for a low price because the foundation was cracked.... all the computer knows is that they both sold. Much the way a computer can't appreciate art, they simply fall short when it comes to evaluation.
We value YOU more than your transaction, and the numbers with which we're most concnerned are the ones related to YOUR bottom line - not ours. This is how we have found success, and this is how we will continue to find it.
Agents strong and growing rapidly.
Convient office locations for easier access.
Do they have an assistant or transaction coordinator?
Be very wary of any agent/broker who thinks that they can go it alone, or with the help of just one person! If your property is marketed properly, there is no way that one or two people could handle the amount of showings, emails, calls, offers, and requests, that are going to come pouring in! Something will get lost in the chaos and often it is an offer that moves on to another property.
How do they plan to market your property?
If they don't immediately list off: Property Sign, MLS, Professional Photography, Virtual Video Tour of Property,Personal Website of Property, and Email Campaigns, then you should be running in the other direction. Sure, you can put a sign up and put it on MLS and you will probably get an offer or two but you don't want a couple offers, you want a lot.
Where are they going to syndicate your listing?
If they look confused and mentioned anything about online marketing in the last answer then they don't know what they are doing. Having a property website is not enough. This website needs to be submitted to every real estate website out there. Buyers are no longer going through agents; they are going to sites like Zillow.com and Trulia.com. If your listings aren't on all of these sites buyers won't see your property.
How do they manage their listings?
Do they have a CRM (Customer Relationship Maintenance software)? If they don't then you can be certain their contact list is not as long as it should be, their offers are not monitored as well as they should be, their buyers are not followed up on as often as they should be, and they subsequently will not be able to sell your property for as high as it should be.
What makes them different from the next agent down the line?
Listen to what they say carefully. In real estate everything must be prepared ahead of time. You will be able to tell if they prepared for this conversation based on their answer. If they scramble, and put together a sentence that is weak how do you think they will be at the negotiating table?
During the consultation, we will look at your property and learn more about your goals for selling and suggest improvements that could lift your price.
Taking the time to stage your home for potential buyers is an effective way to make your house stand out against other listings in your area.

Brochures, Postcards, Flyers and more are professionally designed to increase the effectiveness of your marketing.

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.“
