Testimonials for Barry & Betty Tashakorian

  • user2398241 (Zillow)

    I can not say enough regarding the wonderful job Barry and Betty provided in helping me and my wife purchase our home. We flew into San Diego with less than one week to find an area to live in, and narrow down on the home of our dreams. We discussed our needs prior to our arrival, and found that Barry clearly understood what we were looking for. For the first three days, Barry showed us a smattering of homes in the four areas he thought would best meet our needs. Once we located the neighborhood we were most interested in, Barry showed us a range of houses that both fit within our budget but also met our needs as a growing family. The genius of this broker is that he genuinely understood every aspect of the houses we looked at. Not only could he tell us about the scripted details of each home, but he explained every detail of how the house fit (or didn’t fit) into our expectations. He explained every history of every neighborhood we saw. Barry had a strong grasp of everything from the soil the house was built on to the expectations for neighborhood growth over the following ten years. He backed up his explanations with solid data, and gave us his honest opinions about the houses we were interested in. Once we found a couple of houses we liked, Barry really went to work. His goal was to get up the best possible price on the unit, and he did this with ferocious tenacity. Although he maintained the highest level of integrity throughout his dealings, he also knew when to push and when to sit back so that the negotiations always went in our favor. Again, he would explain his approach and thinking with every aspect of the deal. As soon as the house went into ESCROW, Betty’s dedication became key in finalizing the purchase process. She was active in helping us achieve financing, and always worked to make sure things moved forward seamlessly and efficiently. It was not uncommon for Betty to contact us in the middle of the night (San Diego time), to make sure that documents that time sensitive documents were signed during our business hours in Japan. In the end, we bought a beautiful house at the best possible price. We were able to found the home we desired, and have an accepted offer in less than one week. We were able to close escrow in 45 days living overseas and requiring a sizable jumbo loan. I honestly believe that no other real estate agent in the area would have been able to assist us with this as Barry and Betty did. I recommend them without reservation for any home purchase.

    He is very attentive to your need and extremely hard working and at the same time takes his time to find you the dream home and will not push you to make a decision which is a great quality in an agent. In addition, his knowledge in the history of San Diego and its neighborhoods plus economics deserve couple PhDs. Barry is a guy of highest integrity that we trust without any reservations what so ever. I consider Barry a fully trusted advisor and a friend. We are lucky and very fortunate to have him on our side.

    They are very knowledgeable regarding the listings available. They were very patient with me by showing all that was on the market that fit my requirements and did not hesitate showing me as much listings as I wanted to see. They were very helpful in the the closing process by guiding me through the closing process. They found the loan, the insurance the inspectors etc.

  • mario

    In 50 years of purchasing real estate world-wide I have only found a few brokers who really "knew their client". Barry takes on an assignment and never looses track of it until it has met the requisites of the client. He is relentless in pursuing and following up with details.

    A customer who really wants to make a purchase or is looking for "a Deal" needs to contact Barry. It has been my pleasure in working with him.

  • dendocrine

    Barry Tashakorian was very helpful helping me buy my home. He worked very hard helping me get the best rate possible and accommodating my needs. I was very satisfied with his service and I strongly recommend Barry Tashakorian for anyone seeking a good honest and professional realtor.

  • greg

    As Barry's preferred Title Insurance partner, I have the opportunity to work with him on many transactions throughout the year. He is a relentless hard worker, who is a master at negotiating. He always has his clients best interest in mind, and won't stop until they get a fair price for either a purchase or a sale of their home.

    Barry has a good understanding of the La Jolla market in particular, but other parts of San Diego as well. He's got his ear to the street and can find good properties both to list and sell that most other agents would never discover.

    He always strives for excellence, and that's why I would recommend you speak to Barry about Buying or Selling real estate this year.

  • user7092411 (Zillow)

    I am a local La Jollan for over 20 years and I'm pleased to share that Barry negotiated a great deal for me on a recent R/E transaction. He showed me the right properties - he really knows the market, plus has a great relationship with other agents. Barry held our hands through the whole process & has a great knowledge about homes. It also was an excellent bonus that barry knew the special pockets and the hillside conditions. I will recommend Mr. Tashakorian to personal & business friends, alike. Thanks, Barry! -you're teriffic! Tony Renda, La Jolla, CA.
