Imagine finding the perfect house, putting in an offer, and losing that house. For many people, this is the reality over and over again. Buying a home can be extremely stressful, but losing your dream house can be life-crushing. Why are some real estate agents able to close the deal and others are just able to try? You have to ask yourself, “Is my current real estate agent one of the best in California?”

Sokrat Arzumanyan is not only one of the best real estate brokers in the country, he is in the top 1% and has a higher deal-closing ratio than most of the real estate agents in California. For good reason. He has 15 years of experience as a real estate developer, years of experience as a leading loan broker, is a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), and has two master’s degrees; one as a lawyer.

Why is Sokrat able to close the deal? It is his speed and preparedness. These two factors are the keys to closing a deal and getting your dream home before someone else does. And there is no one faster or more prepared than Sokrat. As one of the top real estate brokers in the United States, Sokrat guides his clients through the process of getting approved for a loan, finding a property, getting into escrow, and closing a deal, even if there are multiple offers on the property.

All real estate purchases are contingent upon appraisals, and Sokrat has the resources to get a house appraised relatively quickly.. “People who work with me know that it’s very important to communicate because the mutual goal at the end of the day for all the parties is to sell, buy and move on.” This speedy approach and Sokrat’s ability to handle all aspects of the purchase are the reasons his clients can get the houses that they want when they want them.

Sokrat is also a real estate developer, so he has extensive knowledge of the market. He has access to real estate that most other agents don’t and can know about properties before they go on the market. It is like having your own inside man to get you the home you always wanted. Sokrat also gives his clients a detailed explanation of the condition of each property. This includes the approximate time and costs it will take to remodel, repair, and add to the property. From underwriting to inspections, to hiring movers; he feels providing all the tools, knowledge, and resources to help his clients make the best decisions and facilitate a simple transition into their new home is integral.

Sokrat is one of the best loan brokers in the country as well and makes sure that his clients choose the proper lender that will fit their needs. He also does his due diligence to ensure that the client qualifies for the loan. Once he confirms that the customer qualifies for the loan, he will offer his expertise as a real estate developer and educate the potential homebuyer on the quality of the property. Next, he handles all the inspections, from general inspections to sewer inspections. Sokrat performing all these duties, and being able to get them done so quickly saves his clients a ton of time and ensures that they will get the best deal as soon as possible.

Sokrat’s Certified Negotiation Expert certification, his decades of experience in the industry along with his knowledge in construction makes him one of the top negotiators in the real estate industry. All these have provided him with the tools he needs to advocate for his clients’ best interests and guarantee that they will be presented with the best home buying options available.

He has not only mastered residential real estate, but commercial real estate as well. He is a member of CCIM,(Certified Commercial Investment Member) which means he specializes in financial and market analysis in the commercial real estate industry. When it comes to real estate, Sokrat’s educational background and adeptness put him head-and-shoulders above his competition and ensure that he provides high-quality service for his clients.

And Sokrat is multilingual. He speaks four languages: English, Russian, Portuguese, and Armenian. His multilingualism allows him to connect with and understand a higher percentage of the population than most other real estate agents. It also speaks to his versatility and makes him a unique vessel for clients who do not speak English or speak limited English. And it proves that he is extremely intelligent. This is why Sokrat has been able to build such a massive and diverse clientele. He is also a philanthropist who donates to multiple charities. He believes that his purpose in life is not just to sell homes, but to be a positive role model in his community and to give back to his community in any way he can.

Sokrat also makes it known that it is not just about making the sale. “My goal is to use all the information that I have acquired through a decade of experience to help them make an informed decision,  because a lot of times, they’ll turn to me and ask me if they should buy a particular house. If I don’t think that property is in their best interest, I will tell them no.” This speaks to Sokrat’s integrity and desire to do what is right. He believes that taking care of his clients, no matter what is the key to long-term success.

Buying a home is one of the most grueling and time-consuming things a person can go through; especially a first-time homebuyer. That is why Sokrat takes pride in being so well-versed and educated on the entire home buying process. He understands that this is a huge financial undertaking for anyone, and he wants to serve his clients in any way he knows how. He has become one of the top real estate agents in the country because he has taken his time to master his craft and focus on the betterment of individuals looking to purchase a home.
