Polka D.

Ilya went above and beyond to find my husband and our perfect house in Encino. He was searching for houses that fit our price range and we never had to follow up, which is the best thing a client can ask for I think. When we went with Ilya to look at the house we ended up buying, I wasn't totally sure about it because in my mind, so much work needed to be done to it. Ilya turned out to not only be knowledgeable in real estate, but in construction, interior design, landscaping, and anything else a client can ask for in an agent! He pointed out some very minor changes to the house that can keep us within our price range yet completely change the parts we didn't love in the house. We of course put in an offer - which was much lower than the asking price. Ilya negotiated the deal in such an amazing way, that we were able to get the lower price and stay in our price range!

It was a huge relief. During the whole escrow process, Ilya took care of everything - we didn't encounter the stress that buyers normally encounter because of his hands-on approach to our whole process. We close effortlessly, made the changes to the house he recommended, and are very happily living in our new house. You will not regret going with Ilya as your agent.

Buyer

We finalized our home purchase a few weeks ago July 2018 and couldn't have done it without the help, the expertise, and the negotiating prowess of Ilya Tsipis. Good agents know the area, can show you a few homes, and be reactive to the processes. An excellent agent understands the expediency of the market, the necessity of amicable negotiation, and proactively communicating with the buyers and the sellers. We felt confident from the very beginning of seeing our potential home to the close of escrow that Mr. Tsipis was on it every step of the way. He took care of our concerns and needs and worked closely with us throughout the sale. Our house received a number of offers that were extremely similar and with his help, we were able to win the house. Once we started escrow, he guided us through the various contingencies, loan applications, and even helped with a variety of tasks that were out…

I have been working with Ilya ever since 2015 when he helped us secure our first home. Even though there were a lot of offers for that home, Ilya was able to get our offer accepted. First-time home buying is usually stressful, but having Ilya guide us every step of the way made it almost a pleasant experience. Fast forward to 2020 when Ilya helped us sell that home for top dollar. I left everything in his hands and let his expertise do the work. I will say, when you are working with Ilya, you feel like you're his only client. While selling our house, Ilya was also simultaneously working on finding us a new house. Ilya again was able to get our offer accepted on the new home, beating out other competing offers. Although selling your home, while trying to buy a new one is stressful, Ilya made the experience almost stress-free. If you want someone with great customer service, able to wheel …

Buyer

Ilya was an excellent agent to work with when buying my investment condo in Studio City. He is very knowledgeable and communicates so easily to make the process clear and understandable and is prompt to respond to all of my questions. His guidance through it all was paramount in a good and pleasant buying experience as he stays on top of it all and is in constant communication with every listing agent, the lender, the HOA, and the escrow company in order to update me precisely and frequently every step of the way. This is my 4th property purchase and his guidance and attitude have been the best of them all. He is friendly, no-nonsense, professional, quick to respond, and really cares for you to have as smooth an experience possible on this sometimes stressful journey. I felt I was in the hands of an experienced and established agent and I will continue to seek his assistance and guidance…

Ilya is very responsive, knowledgeable, and passionate. He was my agent when I was in the market for a condominium in Los Angeles. He did a lot of research for me and spent a lot of time showing me properties in person. I was very impressed with his understanding of the market, knowledge of neighborhoods, attention to detail, and experience when doing walkthroughs and working with other agents. During my search with Ilya, I was relocated for work to Portland, OR. Although I purchased a property in Portland with a locally licensed agent. Ilya provided consultation services during my search there and a lot of assistance going through the escrow and inspection process. Even after closing, he provided specific details on how we can add value to our new property. Ilya is great and will be my agent when I move back to Los Angeles.

Buyer

This was my first time buying a home and the process can be very overwhelming. Ilya went above and beyond to ensure I found the perfect home and that I understood the process every step of the way. Ilya's knowledge of the area was amazing and he had always done his research about the property so that I could make an informed decision. When I found my home, Ilya did such a fantastic job in working with the other agent to get the deal done. It seemed effortless for me because he did so much work behind the scenes to ensure that I had the best deal. He was always responsive and let me know the progress of my escrow even before I asked. I can't say enough about Ilya. I will recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone that is looking for a home or an investment.

Michael G.

We used Ilya's services to purchase our first home. After talking to 4 different agents we decided to go with Ilya due to his amazing personality. Non-pushy, easy to work with, and upfront. Ilya is very detailed at what he does. He said based on the criteria of our search we would find something within a month and that's exactly how it played out. The escrow process was painless. The whole process went through very quickly and smoothly. I would highly recommend Ilya to anyone that either wants to purchase a home or sell one.

Buyer

It is highly likely that I will recommend him again. In fact, I have already referred two of my friends to him to purchase their first home. I have also started discussing buying yet another property from him that is about to be listed. He is professional, yet friendly and shows understanding. He is a great gentleman and you know that you can't say that about many people these days!

Ian W.

Just closed a deal with Ilya, the deal was not easy but Ilya was always there answering all the phone calls and being proactive with getting results. I’ve done quite a few deals in the past but Ilya’s service was exceptional he really cared to make it right and close the deal. I give him 5 stars and you should trust him with a tour next purchase or sale.

I was amazed at how Ilya helped me with the purchase. He quickly understood my initial search requirements, was extremely professional in negotiating a price, following the escrow process, and closing the deal. Ilya makes the whole experience smooth and brings peace of mind. I would be happy to use Ilya's services again or recommend him to friends.

Seller

We approached Ilya Tsipis to help sell our property. Ilya did market research and the property was priced just right, with multiple offers above the asking price after the first showing. Ilya Tsipis was always available to answer any questions and followed up with us every step of the way. I plan to work with Ilya Tsipis in the future.
