"Farzaneh is an outstanding realtor and great advocate to have in your corner. She helped with the sale of my home in Irvine and subsequent purchase in Woodland Hills. She is an excellent negotiator and extremely professional. More importantly, she is very considerate and compassionate. We had lived in Irvine for over 25 years and in our last home for almost 10 years. As you can imagine, it was very difficult to say good bye to our home and even harder to imagine another family living in it. Farzaneh was very understanding of this and helped us through the process. Additionally, we wanted to sell our house and move directly to a new home, so the timing of the transactions were key. The original house we thought we were going to purchase ended up having issues and with Farzaneh's expertise and suggestions we decided not to purchase (very thankfully). Everything came together perfectly in the end. We are extremely happy with our new home. We could not have survived the move without Fara"
