Eric is an incredible agent and a seasoned expert in navigating the real estate market. He has particular expertise in successfully managing challenging, large transactions. He was able to sell our property in under 30 days, with multiple offers above our listing price, find our replacement property which happened to be off-market, and did this all while in the middle of a global pandemic with wildly fluctuating market lending rules and regulations. His transactional business acumen is second to none and his even-keeled approach made us feel incredibly comfortable and at ease throughout the entire process. He is nothing short of truly spectacular.

Our family has owned the New Hampshire apartments in the City of LA since it’s construction in 1962. We operated this multi-family building for more than three generations. However, while faced with the impending Soft-Story Retrofit mandate, periodic L.A. housing inspection compliance, and restrictive Rent Control, we decided that it may be the time to consider selling our building. From the very start of working with Eric Dilanian, it was apparent that Eric has extensive knowledge and experience with the LA apartment market. He brings with him proven successes in accurate valuation and marketing strategies to our benefit. We expected the sale process to be a daunting challenge if we wanted top dollar value, but Eric guided us through every step and made the whole process most seamless and painless. He has demonstrated genuine professionalism, expertise, and was sensitive to our needs and demands. In a remarkably short time, he was able to identify and connected us with a qualified serious buyer, and began strategic, productive negotiations. Eric was always very responsive, and kept in constant communication with us during all crucial phases of contingencies, counter-offers, and closing negotiations. We learned that there were a few LA City Building Ordinances that required our compliance prior to the close. Eric immediately made the effort to contact a contractor, then personally arranged and coordinated the necessary remedial work. Eric and has his team certainly went above and beyond to ensure dedicated, personalized service, and satisfaction for his client. We are extremely delighted with a successful AS-IS sale for our building, at a price we were pleased with, that Eric delivered to us with a very smooth transaction and quick close.

Eric has a strong knowledge and feel for the Los Angeles apartment market helping us locate attractive value add opportunities and filtering out the deals that are not worthwhile.
When we had challenges with a lender during COVID-19, Eric was able to source and recommend a new lender that got the deal done. Eric is very hands on throughout the due diligence and closing process.

Eric and I have done two deals together, both of which went incredibly smoothly. He's a real pro: smart, honest, diligent and great at solving problems collaboratively.
I am very happy to recommend him to anyone with an apartment building to sell.

Our family engaged Eric to represent us as sellers for a multi-family building located in Los Angeles. From start to finish Eric conducted himself as a true professional. Before the deal was launched he provided us with an offering memorandum summarizing the deal, market rents, and proposed property valuations. Once the deal launched, Eric was able to leverage his professional network to get the deal closed quickly (less than 90 days) and most importantly above our asking price.
Eric has is well rounded with a background in corporate finance and valuations which in my opinion really made the difference as he was able to utilize this experience to serve his clients. My rating for Eric is 5 stars and highly recommend.
It is rare that we take the time to write a review but we felt compelled to do so because of the excellent service and attention to detail that we received from Eric Dilanian. Like many property owners, the thought of selling a multi-family property seemed daunting, however, our sale with Eric went extremely smoothly down to the smallest detail of making sense of the bags of unlabeled keys, the notification of difficult tenants, to assisting us with computer issues. He carefully priced our property and strategically handled multiple offers. To this day, my husband and I frequently remark that only the best agents like Eric - that provide superior service will survive and prosper in the real estate industry of the future.
I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding job you did selling my mixed-use building in Atwater Village earlier this year. As you know the property had been in my family for many years and maximizing the price was very important for me and my brother.
Your exceptional marketing and service generated 8 offers and a price well above our initial list price. Please use this letter of gratitude as my highest recommendation for your services. Please feel free to have prospective clients call me.

In 2019, I needed to sell some property in Los Angeles. Since I live out of state, that was a daunting task. However, after engaging Eric Dilanian to represent my interests, I found I could put full confidence in his extensive knowledge and experience of that market. Knowing I was out-of-state, he made several personal visits to the property to assist in meeting third-party vendors involved in the due-diligence process. This particular sale had many challenges and many moving parts but Eric managed it well and kept me informed every step of the way resulting in a successful sale and a good experience all around.

Eric, we wanted to give you a huge thank you for your help in selling La Mirada. As you know when we were considering selling we were feeling a great deal of stress about how to jump through all the various hoops to make the city and the buyer happy, and of course to make the most from the sale. You really did a top notch job of relieving our stress by both guiding us personally and also by utilizing your time and resources to get things done. You’ve made a difficult process clear and easy by going above and beyond. That is rare. We are deeply grateful for your quality support. You’re a class act, and your professionalism shines through. We will definitely be calling for the next sale and also suggesting you to friends. All the best!
