I have had the good fortune to work with John Akhavan in (so far) three real estate transactions. We first met him as the buyer’s agent for a condo that we eventually sold. John make the process quite easy, and we were able to proceed with little difficulty. We next worked with John purchasing a piece of investment property. He was tireless in searching out residential and commercial property. Once we eventually decided on the unit, John was efficient with the process and provided timely data and documentation to assist with our negotiation. Most recently, we worked with John on a potential 1031 exchange. He alerted us to more than 100 investments and physically took us to more than 20. Ultimately, the timing and pricing of these did not fit within our 1031 constraints, but the process assisted us moving forward. We would be happy to recommend John for any commercial or residential (or 1031) transactions as an agent for either the buyer or seller.

He takes a professional approach towards his job which is increasingly uncommon these days – he did his best to market my former home by hiring a professional photographer and negotiated diligently for the purchase of my current home. If you care about service quality and want a serious, up-market experience you should work with John.

He’s very articulate, very responsive and knows his craft. If you’re in need of a true professional realtor, John Akhavan is your man.



Yumi Kobayashi
Project Manager at AT&T

I have known John since we were at school together. He is detail oriented and has a good negotiation skill. When I needed a real estate agent about 4 months ago, I immediately contacted him. I was RIGHT. I know always some trouble happened during house purchase but I had unexpected big troubles in appraisal which didn’t pass newly added regulation in late January. When the problem happened, no one knew what exactly means. John worked together with my mortgage broker and lender and communicated thoroughly with sellers’ agent. What makes him a top-notch real estate agent is that he informed me all possible scenarios and prepared his strategies. I’d never be nervous or anxious entire processes of my house purchase. I strongly recommend John for real estate needs without headache.
