Andrea D.

I have at least ten close friends who are real estate agents. (Seems like everyone has a license these days.) When I bought my house, I didn't work with any of them. I chose Gavin Fleminger of Nourmand and Associates. Here's why. About ten years ago, I was in escrow on a beautiful condo in Santa Monica. Near the end of escrow, I saw blueprints and discovered that another unit's deck was above my bedroom. Big surprise. I wanted out of escrow. Gavin was my real estate agent, and he worked as hard to get me out of escrow as he did to get me in. Actually, he worked even harder. He was losing money and worked his tail off to get me out of the deal. "If it's not right, it's not right." That's what he always said. He is a man of great integrity. So, four years ago when I saw a little teeny house in Sherman Oaks that was listed as a short sale, I called Gavin. He was a saint throughout the whole…

I have at least ten close friends who are real estate agents. (Seems like everyone has a license these days.) When I bought my house, I didn't work with any of them. I chose Gavin Fleminger of Nourmand and Associates. Here's why. About ten years ago, I was in escrow on a beautiful condo in Santa Monica. Near the end of escrow, I saw blueprints and discovered that another unit's deck was above my bedroom. Big surprise. I wanted out of escrow. Gavin was my real estate agent, and he worked as hard to get me out of escrow as he did to get me in. Actually, he worked even harder. He was losing money and worked his tail off to get me out of the deal. "If it's not right, it's not right." That's what he always said. He is a man of great integrity. So, four years ago when I saw a little teeny house in Sherman Oaks that was listed as a short sale, I called Gavin. He was a saint throughout the whole process. First, when I asked him where he thought the real estate market was headed, he replied honestly (unlike every other agent I've ever met). "I think it's going to keep dropping, then flatten out." Okay with me. So, I made a lowball offer. And Gavin actually convinced me to go even lower! (Even though that lessened the chance of the deal going through, and his making money.) They took the deal! Wham, I was suddenly in a 21-day escrow. And I'm sure I was a real pain, especially since I've never bought a property before. I asked questions about every single line of every single document. Gavin is very knowledgeable and very patient and answered absolutely everything. He got all the inspections done while I was at work. He was like my husband for a month! And was so conscientious. For example, when I needed my septic inspected, he found someone to do it. Then rejected them, because they didn't seem to know what they were doing. He really, really watched out for me. I can not possibly recommend him highly enough. I can not imagine how horrible my experience would have been going into a first-time buying situation on a short-sale property and a 21-day escrow with anyone else. I wouldn't have done it. I couldn't have gotten through it. I share this because I want everyone to have as great an experience as I had!

Two very big thumbs up to Michael Nourmand, and his business partner Adam Sires. While they tend to work with higher-end clientele here, they helped my wife and me go through a very difficult escrow. Michael is very open and honest with his thoughts on properties, and we never felt that he was trying to get us to close deals, just so he could get his commission and move on. He often pointed out things that we wouldn't have really thought of, and really helped us learn a lot of the basics of real estate. Adam was great in the process too but especially did well with giving us pointers and ideas on how to set up remodel ideas. Even when we were hitting really stressful points, he stays calm and helps bring you back down from whatever you may have been freaking out about. While we're getting very sleep now from working on the remodel ourselves, we're very thankful to this great team for wha…

Andrea has a fantastic work ethic, strong digital skills, and a keen sense of marketing in the digital age, especially for our B2B enterprise prospects.
