Ilya is a 12-year industry veteran who started by working for his father's brokerage in 2009 on a part-time basis. A few years later, Ilya received an incredible opportunity to manage property and financials for luxury real estate in Beverly Hills. Managing construction, staff, interior designers, and property development opened his eyes to the industry’s creative expanse and ignited his passion for the job.
In 2017, Ilya continued pursuing his real estate education by getting his broker's license and took over the family brokerage, Fair Realty, from his father. Experience running multiple businesses shaped his focus and has made him an ambitious and capable leader.
Since becoming head of Fair Realty, Ilya has consistently helped the company double its sales numbers year after year and is proud to have expanded the team to 11 agents in total, with additional expansions planned for the future!
Since starting his career, Ilya has fallen fiercely in love with his work. Whether he's facilitating meetings, learning something new, or helping clients, there is no part of the process he doesn't enjoy. A consummate professional, Ilya is extremely easy to work with, and he values straightforward communication to make the process as seamless as possible for everyone involved.
Ilya and his team are proud to offer their clients personalized concierge-style services. The Fair Realty team includes a mixture of tax preparers, financial advisers, CPAs, and loan brokers, so they can successfully provide the entire spectrum of property assistance and loan approvals. Before he started real estate, Ilya worked as a financial analyst at Goldman Sachs, giving him a unique background that comes in handy when aiding clients on business matters. He's always eager to set them up with contractors and utilize his multifaceted finance, construction, and design experience to match customers to their dream homes.
Not only is Ilya a hard-working, honorable individual who thrives under pressure, but Ilya (and more than half of his agents) are bilingual, speaking fluent Russian and English. This allows them to be assets for the area’s Russian and Ukrainian communities. Fair Realty is all-inclusive and happy to work with all people in all aspects of real estate, including residential, lending, commercial, and property management.
Ilya is a dedicated family man. He comes from a large extended family and loves spending time with his wife and their two young children. Together they enjoy visiting local parks and venues like the Descanso Gardens, Los Angeles Zoo, Huntington Library, and traveling, locally and internationally. He likes to squeeze in time for sports and fantasy football now and then, too. Go Clippers!
