Eric just sold my first property, and the entire process was truly exceptional. From strategizing the sale price to managing multiple offers with expertise, he shepherded the escrow process with remarkable efficiency and professionalism. What impressed me most was Eric's dedication and passion for his work. He consistently anticipated my needs and ensured everyone involved was kept informed and always one step ahead of the curve. He truly went above and beyond the call of duty. He's a rare gem in the real estate industry, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. In fact, without a doubt, he'll be my first call for all my future real estate transactions.
Patrick and Eric are two of the most hard-working & trustworthy people you will ever meet. I met with them years ago and asked for an appraisal on our Temple Street portfolio - they responded quickly with a thorough Brokers Opinion of Value of what our properties would be worth at that time. We did not list the properties at the time but did so at a future date. Because of their diligent work, I recommended my wife and sister-in-law to Eric and Patrick. What ensued was a very challenging sale of one of their apartment buildings. They both stuck with it and got them a fair price with all their hard work. Fast-forward to today we listed the Temple Street Properties with Eric and Patrick. Again their hard work and honesty was what made us not pick anyone else. It was not the easiest sale. There’s the fact of the limited zoning and the condition of the older buildings. Eric and Patrick guided my long time business partner Jeff and I through the entire process. Their hard-work & honesty brought us a deal that closed on December 28! 100% Cash to great Buyers! They kept telling us it doesn’t matter how many people look at, it just takes that one to buy it and that’s what happened.
We could not recommend Patrick and Eric more to anyone because of their honesty, hard-working and never give up attitude. We will always thank them for this.

After this third (and final) California property sale, I wish I could pack you up and move you to Texas where I have more property to sell. Being an out-of-state landlord of California property made those last 3 sales just that much more difficult. Your service has been outstanding each time, which is why I kept returning. There were several speed bumps in this last sale with environmental issues, delays, and tenant issues but your vast experience and knowledge helped me navigate each item confidently and skillfully. Your willingness to go the extra mile repeatedly and locally assist in matters helped tremendously. It was a pleasure working with both of you. Thank you.
I have worked with Eric Dilanian on multiple transactions, he is an absolute professional. On one property he sold us, he was able to secure us the deal in a competitive bidding environment. After adding value to the property, we listed the same multifamily building for sale with him and he was able to secure the ideal buyer to pay a premium and sell at a profit. I highly recommend working with Eric.
Srinivas Yalamanchili, Positive Investments
Eric is a passionate and dedicated agent who I trust without reservation. His highly sophisticated business acumen as well as his gauge of the market is unmatched. Eric has assisted my family in a number of transactions, advising us of best approach practices along the way. Eric is also extremely professional while remaining hospitable and charismatic. I enthusiastically recommend Eric and the entire Dilanian Real Estate Advisors team!
Dina Hovsepian, Multifamily Investor
I have worked with Eric as both a Buyer and a Seller. He is very responsive and well organized, making it easy to get deals closed. I appreciate that Eric has been available and willing to assist with transactions even after they close. I highly recommend his services and look forward to working with him in the future.
Atticus Lowe, Principal | Montecito Venture Partners
Eric brought an opportunity to me that I could not pass on and ensured the entire process was seamless. He is knowledgeable, professional, honest, responsive and timely - everything you look for in a realtor. I highly recommend his services and look forward to working with him again in the future.
Oscar Diaz, Multifamily Investor
I want to thank Eric for making the sale of my multi-family building such a smooth and stress free transaction. I am an out of state landlord that needed an agent to do all the heavy lifting and Eric delivered.
Eric was able procure 7 offers within the first two weeks of marketing with the eventual buyer offering 100% cash and a 15 day escrow period. Since I was executing a 1031 exchange, this was extremely important as I was able to act on my replacement property quickly. Eric is one of the top agents in the Los Angeles area and I got a chance to see why. Eric knows the area and he certainly knows his craft. I would recommend Eric to anyone thinking of selling their property in the Los Angeles area.
Melvin Cautivar, Out of State Multifamily Investor
Eric and his team did a great job marketing and selling our apartment building. Our need to sell came at a time when interest rates were rising quickly and slowing down the market. He was able to help us quickly pivot and find the right Buyer. He found us an all-cash offer, with no contingencies, and a 14-day escrow. Escrow went flawlessly. We look forward to working with Eric again and highly recommend him.
We can’t say enough about how Eric made the sale of our property in LA/Highland Park run smoothly. Eric first came on our radar several years ago. He prepared an appraisal for us and marketing materials at that time just to show us what we could get for the property and his approach to selling. We weren’t interested in selling at that time but he was gracious and contacted us several times a year to check in. We recently had a problem at the property and we decided it was time to sell. This was going to be a complicated sale under rent control and we weren’t looking forward to a protracted transaction. Eric assured us that he could get us a buyer and close quickly. He did just that at a very attractive price. Thank you Eric!
Yao Family Trust
Eric, I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did juggling both the seller and I with such a short closing time frame. Although it was only a 15 day escrow, it didn’t feel rushed because of how prepared and organized you were as the listing broker – this made sure everything went smoothly. This allowed me to ultimately close so quickly, which kept the Seller on track for his tight 1031 exchange timeframe! There were many competing offers but you understood my ability to close and aggressive terms even though I was a first time transactor with you. To many more!
David Millstein, Multifamily Investor
Eric represented us on the purchase of an apartment building in LA. He worked tirelessly to move a complex transaction forward. He assisted us with tons of due diligence: connected us with housing department contacts, provided stabilized sales comps, leasing comps, made lender intros, and even pointed out a superior way to add value with our ADU build outs. Eric is an excellent communicator, is calm and patient, and I highly recommend him to any potential Buyers and Sellers of Los Angeles real estate if you’re looking for a successful sale.
Paul Jesman, Multifamily Investor
Eric, I just wanted to give you a tremendous thank you for your help selling the Westwood Apartment. I'm particularly grateful for the guidance and direction during the trying parts of the sales process. You made it super easy, especially for me being out of state. It was crystal clear that we got top dollar from the deal, with all the competing buyers. Such a huge relief! You're a gem of a person and on top of your business game. It's been a delight!
Michael H, Multifamily Investor (CA & NV)
Working with Eric Dilanian was a smooth process from start to finish. As an investor, my team and I work with many brokers and Eric is someone that I can confidently say I would enjoy working with again. Eric works at a high level of professionalism and his communication and negotiation abilities are top notch. I highly recommend him and look forward to working together again in the future.
Vartan Achabahian, Principal Prospect Group Real Estate Investments
Eric is an experienced apartment broker familiar with the complexities of managing and selling properties in Los Angeles. He quickly sourced a qualified buyer at a strong price, managed a complex due diligence process, and closed the transaction seamlessly. He was responsive to my requests and always available. Eric took ownership of every aspect of the deal, making my life as easy as possible. I’d highly recommend Eric to anyone looking to sell or purchase apartment buildings in Los Angeles.
Peter B. – Private Multifamily Investor
Thank you Eric for a 5 STAR performance! Your honesty, responsiveness, and knowledge of the industry guided me through the process of selling my apartment building with multiple offers at top dollar with Seller Carry Financing, to one of the most active Buyers in LA! It was a smooth ride!
Working with Eric and Patrick was a great experience. Besides being nice people, they possess a keen sense of the marketplace and remarkable attention to detail. Also, no drama — just “we’ll take care of it.” We felt good every step of the way and ultimately ended up with an offer “over asking” with no contingencies — which exceeded our expectations. So glad we chose them as our listing agents!
Ellen and Tim Doyle
Eric and Patrick are wonderful to work with! We recently sold a multi-family building, and they guided and supported us through every detail. They were always available and offered invaluable assistance, from analyzing and preparing the property for market, working with our property management company and interacting positively with our tenants. As with every transaction, there were a few complicated issues, and Eric and Patrick provided knowledgeable, informed responses that allowed us to successfully close within our desired time frame. They even offered on-going support, post-sale with our exchange. It was an absolute pleasure working with them.
Eric, we wanted to thank you for a fantastic service you provided us with selling our property in Atwater Village. I have to say I never thought I would get $175K over asking, but with your exceptional marketing and tenacious negotiations, we are able to! Thank you for that. I also wanted to thank you for the very smooth escrow process and on time closing. I am very confident that anyone who lists their property with you will be extremely satisfied.
William Tizabi & Beryl Schragger
Eric did a great job representing me in the purchase of 1980 Chickasaw. It was a complex transaction with a lot of layers to navigate through and Eric was super responsive getting additional due diligence from the seller & helping as needed to digest all the information. I’d for sure recommend Eric & look forward to working with him again.
Our family made the difficult decision to sell our late father's property that he had owned for over 50 years. The next decision was how do we move forward. Fortunately, we knew Eric Dilanian and asked him for guidance and representation. It was the best decision we made. Eric provided a calm, educated and personal approach to every aspect of the process. He is a true professional as well as a very fine person. We are extremely grateful to Eric for all that he accomplished for us.
The Jensen Family
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.
Dr. Teo Soleymani
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.
Wong Family Trust
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.
Jerry Fink | Co-Founder of The Bascom Group & VF Developments
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.
Moses Kagan | Owner & Principal of Adaptive Realty
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.
Paul Pagnone | Principal & Owner Piedmont Investment Company
Eric’s keen real estate knowledge, unique marketing approach to each property, and tenacious negotiating skills have been instrumental in getting our deals done.
He has a creative method of finding a solution to each road-bump in a real estate transaction and the ability to navigate successfully towards the close of escrow. Eric puts a 100% effort in each transaction and provides value each and every step of the way.
Benjamin Hsiang | Principal of Realty Investment Advisors
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.
Valerie M | Out-of-State Landlord
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!
