Where to begin, we probably all have a guy or gal that is a broker so to find one that stands well above the rest is rare. Yoav is just that and I urge you to read this entire review. A broker needs to know the area, the property, the market, but above all needs to be honest and trustworthy even if it means guiding clients away from bad deals at the expense of losing income. I have worked with Yoav for many years on various transactions, rental properties, investment properties and traditional buy/sell transactions. Through it all, he has guided me away from transactions that although would have made him money, were not right for me. Most recently, he worked for nearly five months to help my wife and I buy our next home. It was a complicated deal with sellers that were not very reasonable or communicative. Yoav was creative and tenacious in his negotiations with the other broker and went above and beyond meeting with contractors so that we can all reach an equitable point and complete the deal. Did I mention it took nearly five months? At points where my emotions got the better of me and I wanted to give in and agree to the terms for fear of losing the house, he advised me to sit tight even though it meant he had to work harder and longer. In the end, we got everything we wanted and couldn't have done it without his support. While supporting us on the purchase, he also helped us list and sell our current home and a rental property all at the same time. He helped us be objective about the repairs our properties needed and their values as opposed to being a "yes" man. To me, that was crucial and helped ensure we were positioned properly in the market. If you want to sleep good at night knowing your broker has your best interest at heart, Yoav is the right guy.
