Ivan is hands down the best! Just landed our dream home in one day while he stayed up on a Tuesday night on his time to make sure all our paperwork was in to seal the deal while there was interest from other agents. He knew how much this house meant to us and went the extra mile. You’d be silly to look any further than my man Ivan!
We were looking at a home in Wendell Falls and were lucky enough to meet Ivan as the on call realtor, and were so grateful to meet him! We ended up using him as our buyer’s agent, and had a great experience. He has such a positive and upbeat attitude, and definitely looked out for our best interests. Highly recommend!
Ivan was an outstanding agent who worked hard throughout the entire process, and it paid off! He got my home sold above the price I was hoping for, and on schedule. He spent significant time to help stage, have professional photos taken, and then worked with the agents representing the multiple offers that came in. Ivan ensured that each step of the way I was taken care of, and I would absolutely recommend him!
