They are awesome. Yoav did a great job selling our house. Fought for us and got the price we wanted.
Miracle worker. Sold our house quickly. Super responsive and helpful. Went to bat for us on several occasions. Very thorough in all aspects of both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new home. I just can't say enough. If you are looking for an agent to make things happen Yoav is your guy.
Yoav is the best. Thanks to him we received multiple offers less than a week after listing, and sold our townhouse for over asking price. He also helped us to buy an amazing house for a great price, and was patient and helpful during the entire process. Yoav was great at listening to what we wanted, but also made sure to manage our expectations. He was professional and friendly and easy to work with, and quickly responded to our many emails and texts. I hope to never buy or sell a house ever again, but if I do, Yoav will be the first person I call.
Yoav was amazing, and I don't say that lightly. He was there every step of the way- providing information, advice, and recommendations to make sure our interests were protected and our concerns were addressed. As a Realtor moving from another country, I really appreciated his level of service. I highly recommend Yoav to anyone looking for a Realtor.
Yoav is a tremendous person and real estate agent. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone. He is hard working, patient and kind. He was able to know exactly what I was looking for and persistently helped me even though the parameters of what I was looking for was difficult. He calmly walked me through the entire process of purchasing my new home. I absolutely love my new home. I look forward to working with him again in the future when we are ready to sell our other house down the road.
Yoav provided all of the guidance that made the sale of our home painless. The results speak for themselves; happy seller, happy buyer, and above asking. He knows the market well and went above and beyond our expectations. We felt that Yoav provided valuable insight on getting the house ready for sale, the negotiation process, and closing the transaction.
Yoav was very friendly, responsive and professional. He went above and beyond the call of duty many times during the process. He answered all of my questions, no matter how small or silly. He was always on time. He worked with my schedule. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone.
Yoav was amazing. He sold our house in just 3 short weeks and the process could not have gone any smoother. He was always available, always excited to answer all our questions and understood all of our needs throughout the process. He was pleasant to spend time with and we loved his honesty. Can't wait for him to find us our new home! Highly, highly recommend him.
The service we received from Yoav was exceptiona. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process of buying and selling. Yoav is a true professional and in a class by himself.
We knew that buying and selling a house can be a difficult process to say the least, so finding a realtor who was going to be there from start to finish, be available, and know what the appropriate moves would be, was crucial. Yoav was exceptional in his attention to our concerns, strategy to write competitive and appropriate offers and made himself available to us whenever we had a question. We are so happy that we found Yoav and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
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.
Yoav was incredible. He found us the perfect house after guiding us away from a couple of deals that really were not to our benefit. He extracted concessions from the owner that I never imagined possible! Then he turned around and sold our old house, getting us into escrow two days after the first showing. Escrow closed in 21 days on a cash deal. We consider Yoav a friend, and I would recommend him without any reservations. He seems to make himself available 24/7. I could always reach him by phone, and even when he was busy, he would let me know when he could get back to me. He is a true professional.
My family and I have been living in our new home for a few weeks now and we could not be any happier. While searching for a home can be overwhelming, Yoav made the process much easier and was there for us every step of the way. We had very specific items that we were looking for and most importantly the location we wanted our kids to grow up in. At the very beginning of our home search, Yoav told us that he will find the perfect home for our family and that he did. He was always available with every home we wanted to see and was responsive with every question we had and would not let us compromise with what we originally set out to find. When we found that perfect home, Yoav was able to get our offer accepted. We moved in just in time for the holidays and I'm looking forward to celebrating the New Year in our new home and I'm so thankful to Yoav for making that happen.
My experience with Yoav Astman was outstanding. We were looking for an investment property in the Woodland Hills area. His knowledge and expertise made us feel really comfortable throughout the entire process. We look forward to working with him again on our next investment and encourage you to consider him as an agent to represent you on a real estate transaction.
Worked with Yoav on 2 purchases. I couldn't ask for a more patient, reliable and hardworking realtor. Every call and question were answered promptly. He made my buying experiences easy and smooth. Definitely recommend.
We had a pleasure of working with Yoav when looking to purchase a home! He was able to show us many properties that were within our budget, gave us great suggestions and assistance! He was always on time, always providing us with the information we needed in a timely manner. We got the deal we were looking for because of him! We are extremely happy that we chose Yoav to find our home and would highly recommend him.
Yoav and Jackie sold our house in 3 weeks for the highest price our Calabasas model home has ever sold for. They are a pleasure to work with and are available to answer our questions any time of the day! Professional, proactive and trustworthy are an understatement. I highly recommend Yoav and Jackie Astman and The Astman Group if you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Calabasas area. Thank you so much for selling our home and it's a lot of fun finding a new one with you guys.
Omg! Yoav was the best. I needed to stagger a sale and a purchase without doing it contingency. He sold my home, and found us our dream home, and managed to stagger the escrows 48 hours apart. He kept track of the financing, both escrows, and made sure everything ran smoothly. Before that, when we really liked a home he was iffy about, he had one of his contractors come out and show us the specific issues we may have had, thereby saving is from complete and utter homeowning disaster. We are in a great home now and couldn't be happier.
As a first time homebuyer, I was very reluctant through the home search process. I did not know what the right home was and felt like I would drive my agent crazy. Yoav made the home buying process so easy for me. When I was reluctant, he provided reassurance. When I wanted to put out offers because I was simply frustrated, he told me not worry and to take my time, reminding me it’s about finding the RIGHT home. I can’t begin to express how supportive Yoav was to work with. Every step of the way he had my best interest at heart. You dont just get a great agent with Yoav, you get a great guy. Thank you Yoav for helping me find and buy my first home. Side note: my home appraised for $10k more than purchased for and I got a $7k credit.
We met Yoav Astman under unusual emotional circumstances after a not nice situation with another realtor. He rescued us and became our agent. Special thank you to his wife and partner, Jackie. Within two days he showed us our new house. We only knew about this house because of his relationship with a realtor who was the seller. We bought it in 48 hours. He listed our home to sell and it was a done deal before the official open house. Those are special instances. I know. He is an excellent communicator. He knows his business. He followed through and returned every phone call and every text and email. He is always professional and friendly. He is a very nice person. He was always on time, too. We would highly recommend Yoav.
We had a great experience selling our home with Yoav. He is truly professional, responsive, honest and hard-working. This was not a simple home sale, as we were trying to sell an investment property that was tenant-occupied. Yoav helped us deal with our challenging tenants in a very patient and professional manner. And once the house was on the market, Yoav was able to sell our home quickly, and with multiple offers. He also helped us navigate a complex sale, as our sale was contingent upon the buyer selling their property. Throughout it all, what I most appreciated is Yoav's responsiveness. He always returned our calls or emails promptly, kept us up to speed on any development, and stayed on-top of the entire escrow process keeping it moving along smoothly. We would highly recommend working with Yoav. He is completely trustworthy, and also just a super nice guy.
Yoav helped my wife and I sell our home in Calabasas. We all know you're lucky if you find a realtor who's enthusiastic, well prepared, willing to work hard and knows the market. You hit the jackpot when you run into a truly savvy business person with integrity like Yoav Astman. I structure large scale business deals and negotiate contracts for a living, so it's little surprise I've been underwhelmed with realtors I've worked with in the past. Yoav treated our single-family residence with the expertise I'd see on a multimillion dollar corporate acquisition. We'd met Yoav several years prior at an open house for he and his wife's personal listing and we'd been so impressed by his sense of style and reserved professionalism, we called him when it was time to sell. He proposed a solid strategy and efficient execution strategy that made him a clear choice as our agent. It was a hot market with limited inventory, so he could have easily listed and waited for the house to sell itself, but instead he connected us with a contractor and recommended upgrades that would add meaningful value for every dollar we invested. He offered shrewd advice on staging, produced a professional video, high quality marketing materials that spared no expense, and amazing photographs that unlike most of our comps, didn't distort the space with a wide angle lens clearly intended to deceive the buyer. The sale went very well-he brought in multiple offers, all above asking price, and surgically executed the entire transaction all the way through escrow. Throughout the whole process I felt like Yoav had our back and he even caught a couple things that I missed, saving us a bunch of money. I felt like Yoav knew what was going on at all times in the closing process, so I was confident he wasn't going to let us miss any deadlines and was completely on top of any potential red flags. We even ended up closing a few days early.
