What Ivan's Clients Say

Testimonials

“We worked with Ivan to find a rental for our move from NY to LA. We spoke on the phone before and he was great at understanding what we were looking for and the challenge we had looking from NY. He arranged 6 showings for the day that I was in LA. Once we decided on a place, he was great at moving the lease singing along, and facilitating all our questions about the new house. Throughout the process, he was friendly, patient and helpful. We would highly recommend him.”

Lauren S.

“Ivan and his team did an amazing job helping us buy a perfect house for our family! When we had questions, he got us answers almost immediately. He took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for. We always felt informed and never pressured. Once our offer was accepted, updates came on almost a daily basis, and he was always available during the sensitive times of the escrow period. We highly recommend Ivan, and will absolutely use his services again in the future. Thanks Ivan!”

He is a very driven human being towards getting what needs to be done for you. You can rest assured that you can put your trust in Ivan as he is a very ethical person.

Tiffany Misner

“I recently referred a client of mine to Ivan when they moved to Los Angeles from New York. Ivan could not have been more friendly, professional and helpful to them. Giving referrals is often dicey, because if the deal goes bad, it then effects your own business. I never hesitate to refer Ivan. ”

David Wood

“Ivan is sensational! I am an investor and purchased a home with Ivan and the entire process start to finish was flawless. He is such a professional, such a pleasure to speak with and is so knowledgeable about the marketplace. I have never met an agent like Ivan!”

Brittany Castro

“I have two businesses in which I work with varied clientele that often ask for referrals for all there personal and business needs. I had met Ivan through a professional services group we both belonged to and felt he would be a great match with a developer client. In my business making a key referral builds my credibility. He did everything from scouting the location, running the analytics for the investment and calculated the return on investment after sale. I am beyond appreciative to Ivan for making me look so good with my client. I would not hesitate to send any of my celebrity and HNW clientele to Ivan in the future.”

Gold Mac

Neil Smith

“We would give 6 stars to Ivan Estrada if I could! Me and my wife had a very positive experience working with Ivan to find our home and would highly recommend that anyone seeking a Top Los Angles realtor give him a call. He is smart, efficient, professional and very pleasant to work with. He will go the extra mile for you to make sure you find what you’re looking for. You’ll be glad you worked with him. We couldn’t have done this without him. We will definitely contact him next time we look for a new home.”

Marcelo Lagos

“We had such a great experience buying our first place with Ivan! He was always available for questions (even for newbies home buyers like us!) at any hour of the day! He made the process easy and painless.He went above and beyond for us. Can’t thank him enough!! We would 100% recommend Ivan and his services to anyone looking to buy in Los Angeles”

Vannessa Sawtell-Jones

“I have had the opportunity, and sometimes displeasure, of working with real estate agents when buying or selling properties for myself and clients. I have always had to be skeptical and be overly mindful of what the agent was doing. I have had experiences where the agents’ profits have taken priority over the needs of me or my clients, trying to shove poor deals/fits down our throats for the fast and easy deal.I can say with certainty that I NEVER have to concern myself with Ivan now that Ivan has represented me and my clients. I have never come across an agent that takes doing a great and ethical job so personally for his clients (I am sure they exist, but I have just not come across it). Ivan will kill a deal rather than let his client buy the wrong property or make a hasty sale. He is an expert and if you follow his lead, you will be rewarded in the end.There are very few people that I will put my neck on the line to refer to family, clients and friends, and he is someone that I take great pride in recommending. Absolute star!!!!”

Evan Levy

“Ivan was very helpful in helping me locate properties that I was looking for and ultimately help facilitate the process of buying it. He was always very prompt and very helpful to find solutions when an issue arises. Very knowledgeable. I go to him with all of my property questions, inquiries and issues. I always get a great response and solution in no time at all.”

Howard Chan

“Ivan is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. His professionalism, knowledge of the process and market, attention to detail and commitment to his client by far exceeds any other experience that I’ve had even after the transaction was complete. I will definitely work with him in the future. ”

Joseph Frank

“Ivan was referred to us by a close friend that recently used Ivan’s services to purchase a home. We were first time home buyers and did not know what to expect. Ivan met us at a convenient time and location and even brought us a book to help educate us on the process. I remember Ivan saying that there was no rush at all and that we should take our time in finding our first home, which was very refreshing. He gave us excellent tips to help us scout for our new home, such as taking a look around at local shops, stores, and checking out the locations at different times of the day. We took Ivan on a field trip almost for an entire weekend when we “narrowed down” our search until we found the home we loved. Ivan then went into Super Man mode and was a negotiating genius that got us the house that already had multiple offers without having to go through multiple rounds of negotiations.We are now happy homeowners thanks to Ivan.”

Manny Fernandez

“Ivan Estrada is the epitome and definition of an outstanding real estate agent and the best there is out there. As a first time buyer, I was looking to purchase my first home in a very competitive market (highly rated school district, safe, family-oriented community, centrally located, historically low inventories). I randomly called a real estate office for assistance and was referred to Ivan. I needed someone knowledgeable, hard working and patient since this was my first home buying experience and I didn’t know what to expect and had a lot of questions. Ivan was there by my side every step of the way and went far above and beyond to get my offer accepted even when I was up against several all-cash offers. I’ve recommended Ivan and his team to my friends and professional contacts and will continue to do so in the long future without any hesitation. If you want a trustworthy agent who cares about you and your family, look no further than Ivan Estrada. ”

Cheryl Ho

“Ivan Estrada is a gem! He did a magnificent job for us when we bought our lovely home! He worked very hard for us in getting just the right home and was always optimistic we would find the perfect one. He understood our needs and most importantly, always kept us up to date with what was going on. I really can’t say enough good things about Ivan! He was always available to talk with us every step of the way. It was a pleasure to work with him, and we will do so in the future.”

Stephanie Mau

“Ivan represented me in a home purchase in 2014. I couldn’t ask for a better partner to represent my interests. He anticipated my needs and made the buying process seamless; and truly went beyond the call of duty – even after the sale! I’d worked with two brokers prior to meeting Ivan and he was in an entirely separate league as to market knowledge, negotiating tactics, financials, etc”

Sara Weiss

“Ivan is an amazing advocate. His depth of knowledge in the market, his real world understanding of financial considerations, responsiveness and cheery (but not annoyingly so) disposition are unmatched. He helped me and my husband navigate the crazy waters of obtaining financing and dealing with a flipper/seller in the purchase of our first home. The process was efficient because he made sure that everyone was doing what they needed to be doing on the timeline we needed. He also kept me sane. Thank you, Ivan ”

Ashely Bennett Boardman

“Ivan did such an amazing job helping me sell my home. Ivan is incredibly bright, and I loved how he thinks outside of the box. On top of being a broker,he’s also a CPA which made me feel incredibly taken care of. He has a drive and a passion for what he does which is a quality that made him stand out. My house sold incredibly quick, and Ivan kept me informed every step of the way. He’s incredibly connected in the community and I would his again in a heartbeat.”

Robert Branson

“My husband and I worked with Ivan for over year as we looked for the right house for the right price in the right neighborhood. It was not an easy process, but with Ivan’s guidance and knowledge it made the process as easy as possible. Working with Ivan and his team made the whole process so much easier. Once we found our house Ivan did a great job negotiating and getting us to a quick close. We can not recommend Ivan enough. We will definitely be using Ivan for our next home purchase or sale.”

Jill Define Weinberg

“I recently purchased a condo in West Hollywood and I am so lucky to have chosen Ivan Estrada as my realtor. Ivan and his team are true professionals, in every sense of the word.What I particularly loved about Ivan, is that he took the time to understand what I was really looking for and what was important to me. He showed me multiple properties and all of them were in-line with what I was searching for. It saved me so much time and proved that he was invested in getting me the right place, for the right price. Ivan’s experience as a CPA was evident in his sophisticated knowledge of property investment, and his thoughts and advice extremely valuable. He grew up in Los Angeles, which I believe gives him an even more genuine understanding of the landscape and history, so I was able to find a property in a phenomenal area. My purchase situation was particularly challenging, being from a different country and having a limited history in the USA. However, Ivan handled every step of my purchase with purpose, grace and ease. He introduced me to the most incredible lending team (Headed by Michael at Prime Lending), and I am now the happy owner of a stunning condo. I highly recommend Ivan Estrada and his exceptional team.”

Dean McCarthy

“Prompt, responsible, excellent follow-through, open/honest, and first class. Successfully sold my home, and for more than I had expected. I then hired Ivan to purchase my new home. He is terrific. Would use him again hands down!”

Shaun Bourget

“I was referred to Ivan by my CPA when I was looking for a second home. I’ve had a bad experience working with agents in the past, so I was a bit guarded when making a decision to work with anyone. When my wife and I met him, we were incredibly impressed by his knowledge and network base in the Beverly Hills area. We were also very impressed by the fact that he was also a CPA. After 2 months of searching, Ivan found us the perfect home on S Clark. Ivan did a stellar of a job negotiating an incredible price, and he also made sure we had a strong inspection team. It’s almost been 2 years since we moved in, and we could not be happier. We decided to renovate our home soon after moving in ,and Ivan connected us with the best contractor and design team in the city. We would definitely use Ivan again.”

Ernie Schmieder

“My wife and I used Ivan to purchase our current home. We worked with him for close to a year. Working with Ivan was very easy. He was responsive and also very knowledgeable about the market and the process. Ivan and his team did a great job in negotiating the sale and closing the transaction. I highly recommend Ivan and would use him again.”

Joel Weinberg

“Ivan did an excellent job renting two of our properties at the same time. He priced them correctly, always made himself available for showings, and vetted potential tenants on our behalf. On top of that, Ivan is a joy to be around! He gets my 100% recommendation.”

Adam Jones

“My grandmother was looking to downsize but wanted a specific home with no stairs or steps and a swimming pool. Ivan was great. He was patient and helped us find the needle in a hay stack. It wasn’t easy finding a smaller home with a pool. Ivan helped find the perfect home and then negotiated a great deal. My grandmother loves her home and is completely happy in her new home.”

Roy Jimenez

“Ivan and his team are wonderful. Ivan is thoughtful and diligent, and is steadfast in his attention to detail.First, Ivan assisted in the sale of my home in Outpost Estates and he made sure that I was apprised of all steps during the process. The marketing efforts were wonderful, and he was available for questions and comments and to address concerns. The home was in escrow within weeks, and I felt that he was an advocate during the escrow process, working diligently to push back against buyer demands for concessions related to inspections. After the sale, Ivan helped me purchase my new home, once again acting as an invaluable resource and advocate. He was patient with me, as we wrote offers on four different properties before finding my current home. As a lawyer, I can be quite difficult at times, demanding, as well as a stickler to details. Not once did Ivan flinch. Not only did he demonstrate that he cared about and respected me, but he made sure to make me feel heard. He is a consummate professional who I will work with again.”

Scott Harris

“Ivan was extremely knowledgeable and helped make the buying process relatively easy. His guidance and responsiveness were comforting, and we feel like we got a great property at a great price. He is simply the best!”

Judy Price

“In the last 5 years working as a real estate investor, I have worked with 8 different realtors. And of the 8 realtors, Ivan has been definitely the best! He sold my West Hollywood condo in just one week. But even if it would have taken months to sell, Ivan has offered outstanding skills which make a successful realtor and someone pleasant to have as a client: -He was always prompt to answer any communication in less than 24 hours. Most of the time even in a few hours. -He offers great knowledge and experience on what things need to be improved or added in your property in order to sell it at a great price. But also when he thinks that you are overdoing any upgrades, he is honest and protects your wallet. -He was always present in our open houses which is something very rare on most realtors. Most realtors invite someone else to a showing so the other realtor could get a pool of prospective buyers for other properties and then share the commission. Not with Ivan. -Great relationships with the community -Great presentation and negotiation skills. I wish I can have someone like Ivan in San Antonio where I continue doing real estate transactions. Is there anything more to say about him?”

Ricardo Valdez

“Ivan was a wonderful realtor for this first-time home buyer! I would (and have already) recommended him to others. I knew upon first meeting he would be great to work with and I was right. He was very quick to respond to any questions I had and helped me navigate thru my decisions as a first time purchaser–condo vs. house, inspections, credits, you name it. He and his team took care of a lot of behind the scenes things for me so it would not be so overwhelming and I really appreciated all his thoughts on financing etc. to help me connect with the right people. During the negotiation process, he was equally wonderful and I feel like I made the right choice while he got me the right price. He has even followed up with me several times post purchase with an update on the market in my neighborhood–letting me know I made a great choice. You can’t go wrong choosing Ivan as you realtor!”

Courtney Childress

“Ivan not only helped us secure our first family home, he guided us through step by step & explained every step along the way. He made sure all questions & concerns were answered & he always went above and beyond. He mediated between the differences my husband & I had and in the end we ended up with a beautiful home. If you are looking for an honest, reliable, knowledgeable, & hardworking real estate advocate to work with I highly recommend Ivan. Added bonus is he has an AMAZING eye for design & a wonderful singing voice!”

Rachel Rabizadeh

“Having Ivan as your agent is like having a magic real estate fairy that appears anytime you say his name. He doesn’t take a vacation (and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t sleep). As first time home buyers, we had a lot of dumb questions, but also ran into some complicated issues, and we had some unusual wants for our home as well. But for Ivan, no question was too small, no problem too complex, and no request too idiosyncratic for a solution. From searching to buying to remodeling, Ivan delivered exactly what we wanted, in a way that I really think would not have been possible with just any old realtor. He was there to calm us down when we had our inevitable “we are buying a house” panic attacks, and there to celebrate with us when we picked up the keys to our new home. Highly Recommended!”

Andrew L.

“I have worked with many real estate agents across six real estate transactions, and Ivan has been by far the best to work with. He has an incredibly positive, can-do attitude, is always prepared and available, and is overall super enjoyable to work with. I recently moved from Boston to LA for work, and Ivan helped me find a place easily despite the super quick timeline I was working on. I was coming to town for Thanksgiving, and I called Ivan the Sunday before asking if we could see some condos that week. Within a day he had scheduled Wednesday appointments for us to see all the places I was interested in. Then on Tuesday night, a new condo came on the market that I fell in love with. Even though the sellers weren’t planning to show it the week of Thanksgiving, Ivan worked his magic and was able to get us in to see it on Wednesday. I made an offer that same day, and now here I am two months later relaxing in the living room of that very same condo. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of agent or new home! Furthermore, Ivan’s emphasis on customer service is particularly helpful during the inevitable challenges of any real estate transaction. Just before I closed on my condo, we found out that the sellers had left a bunch of holes in the walls that we hadn’t been expecting. Without missing a beat, Ivan offered to take care of that for me on his dime so the transaction wouldn’t be delayed, and the morning after closing he had a handyman in to fix the problems. Overall, I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with such a smart and dedicated agent, and I recommend him anytime someone brings up real estate.”

Andrew Martinez

““This is what ALL realtors should strive to be! It doesn’t get any better than Ivan. Personable, tenacious and he gets the job done and DELIVERS for his clients – in often times stressful situations. Whether buying or selling or leasing, Ivan and his team leave no stone unturned and he goes the extra mile to make the deal happen! I’m a happy client. He is simply the BEST!””
