Having just arrived in the US, I didn't know where to turn for help or even how to buy a house. Connecting with Imraan was quite literally one of the best connections I have ever made in this life: what could have been intolerably stressful became something of an adventure. Where things looked impossible Imraan helped make them happen, be it the achievement of house dreams or acquisition of a mortgage as a weird alien. I can't easily describe the lengths IA went to to help; not just the core house purchase but all the other stuff that may have made things tricky. This guy even got our car serviced when we were out the country. I am entirely serious. His judgement, probity, attitude, diligence, reliability are the highest I have come across in this or other industries. This is all true.
Imraan Ali was professional, friendly, attentive to detail and savvy to our every need as clients. He allowed us to get the house of our dreams for a great price and he acted as a calm and informative guide through every step of the process. We came away from the daunting task of buying a home with nothing but positive feelings, thanks in no small part to Mr. Ali. Highly recommend this agent!!
Every now and then, a person in the service industry comes along that just gets it. They are well education in their profession, they take what they do seriously and they understand the value of human interaction vs. text and email messages. Without a doubt, real estate transactions can be complicated, emotional, mind numbing and frustrating...and those are the good ones!
Imraan clearly understands who he is dealing with and how to work with both their personality, or their involvement level no matter what side of the table the person is sitting on. Transparent and clear communication coupled with a fair and reasonable negotiation style is how he gets things done. He realizes who he works for and does so with an ethical and empathetic approach, which is most refreshing and very confidence inspiring.
Most interestingly, I found it interesting how must the other parties realtor seemed to be able to work so easily with Imraan. While they never met before the transaction, there was no time where either complained about each other and didn't make every effort to work together to help their clients. This made for a very simple and smooth sale.
I truly believe that if you are not interviewing Imraan for your next real estate transaction, you are seriously missing he boat. Every buyer and/or seller wants the voice of reason with the wisdom of Soloman and the patience of Job. If you don't consider Imraan, you car giving the other side a chance to steal what could very well be your biggest advantage in a real estate transaction.
I highly recommend Imraan and his team for anything real-estate related.
The only reason that I'm writing one of these long, informative essay-reviews is because I am really happy with how this all went down. So if you don't read on, it's fine, just know that Imraan is an honest, smart guy.
We first met at an open house and spoke for about 40 minutes. Immediately it became clear that not only does he have a vast knowledge of the area and real estate, he is very passionate about what he does.
I told him about my plan to sell my house in Burbank and hopefully buy another one in Highland Park. Imraan and his team created a list of what needed to be done to the Burbank house and helped every step of the way. We obviously wanted to get the highest price and he did everything to make that happen. He was up to date in using the latest resources and technology (including hip staging and creating a 3D walk-through viewable on any mobile device). In the end, we received over twenty-five offers for the house and sold $122,000 over the asking price. I know that this wouldn't have happened had it not been for The Eastside Co.
While all of this was going on, Imraan suggested I purchase an investment property, which I had never even thought about. It's that sort of expertise that you get with him. If you haven't done this before, or even if you have, there is always something new to learn. After looking at several places, we were accepted on a backup offer (we submitted these upon Imraan's suggestion) and got the house!
Imraan was and still is available anytime that I have needed him. I'm really happy to be a client and a friend.
Imraan and The Eastside Co took the time to really find good tenants when leasing our place in Silver Lake. They vetted several applicants and found a couple that really meshed with us and are respectful and pleasant. We couldnât be happier with the results.
I thought that selling a house in Los Angeles while residing in Orange County would be difficult seeing that I am a senior and the drive on the I5 is long, however, Imrann and his crew at Eastside prepared the house for sale, held an open house and sold it in 10 days at a price higher than the appraisal or asking price. They were effecient and helpful in every way and we were able to complete the transaction without my having to travel to Los Angeles but once. I have already listed another property with them.
Imraan was an outstanding agent. He showed us a wide range of listings with no pressure, and learned carefully from every single showing to quickly focus on what was the right fit for us. He has endless patience but also won't waste your time. I can also say that Imraan knows how to negotiate in an extremely tight market to get you what you want, even when it seems impossible and you are up against other highly qualified buyers. Imraan was realistic from the beginning, informing us that we would probably be outbid several times before getting an offer accepted. We closed on our 3rd bid which was better than I expected under current market conditions. Imraan will fight hard for you when the right opportunity comes along. His experience proved valuable as well: we used his network of loan brokers, appraisers, contractors etc. and he often knew listing agents which gave us the inside track on each situation. I would say Imraan is an excellent agent and you may find others with the same level of professionalism, but the thing that makes Imraan stand out are his skills at closing and negotiating amidst stiff competition in the market. He can get you want you want, even when it seems impossible, and we could not be happier with our new home.
Thanks to Imraan we wake up every morning in our new house and pinch ourselves. He found us the perfect house that embodies everything we were looking for! Imraan is very efficent and was always available to answer any questions we had. The thing we appreciated the most was his honesty and patience when it came to finding the right place for us. I will only recommend and use him as my realtor moving forward.
Working with Imraan on my first home purchase was the best decision I could have made. His knowledge, enthusiasm, professionalism, and cool demeanor made me feel confident and supported during each step of the process. He always made himself available to me whenever I had a question (and if you are a first time buyer, you will have many...), and his point of view was always well thought out, personalized, and honest. Even after we closed, Imraan responded quickly to any question I had, and also put me in touch with excellent contractors and technicians to help me ease into my renovations. I couldn't be happier with my buying experience or my new home!
Imraan is the consummate realtor. He knows the ropes but he also has the creativity to think out of the box. Imraan is responsive and professional. He will commit his expertise and resources to your benefit and will deliver the goods, just like he did for my purchase. In short, Imraan is your choice for all real estate matter in Los Angeles.
