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.
