“My wife and I have recently bought and sold a house with Avi Urban. He did an excellent job both in being able to help us buy a house, but also importantly in terms of selling our previous house.
We were in a bit of a difficult situation as we have 2 little kids. It would have been quite a burden on us to have to first sell our house, move out to a rental property and only then move to a new house. Avi was able to put us in touch with a bridge-loan agent (Joel Spolin). Joel was able to help us by providing us with a bridge loan that allowed us to buy first and sell later.
Avi’s expertise in sequencing this complex transaction (buying one house and selling another) made it very easy for us to concentrate on the actual job of focusing on what kind of house we want to buy.
Once we bought the new house, Avi was able to, within an extremely short time (a month) to get our house sold. He was able to find us buyers who put up a great pre-emptive offer, ridding us of the need to do staging/advertising.
Avi’s honesty has shined through when he insisted that, although the buyers came directly to him, they be given another agent to give them fair representation.
Finally, Avi was able to negotiate a very good deal for us, both in selling house price and in the total commissions we paid.
This is not the first (or last time) that we use Avi! we strongly recommend his expertise and ability to navigate through the complex bay-area housing maket, both as a buying agent and also as a selling one.”

“I would like to highly recommend Avi as a realtor. He has been the most patient and helpful person as we went back and forth over the decision to buy a house over the past two years. He is always available via email/phone and ready to answer all questions to make the process smooth for busy professionals. He always provides honest opinion about any house that one might consider and you don’t really feel any pressure or frustration on his part in this highly competitive market. His use of technology makes the paper work a breeze. Most of the documents are signed using Docusign without you having to go through the hassle of printing/signing/scanning. His most valuable insights were during preparing the offers where he has a lot of experience and intuition to make the right offer. He provided thorough guidance through the complicated escrow process to make sure that the deal was closed on time.”

“Avi is not only our realtor but also a partner who truly understands our needs and help us find the best house for us. Avi is always on time, always returns calls and always with the up to date information when we need it. We love working with him and after working together for more than 2 years on various opportunities we feel we have chosen the best real estate agent in the area.”

“When buying a house, the realtor is by far the most important actor involved. When we met Avi for the first time, we hardly knew what to expect and how to go about the process. We didn’t even know what kind of house we were looking for. With his incredible patience and wisdom, he walked us, slowly and comfortably, through the entire challenge. He has been available for us, mornings, nights and weekends (and as other reviews mention, he indeed seems to never take rest), for meetings and open houses. Later in the process, Avi guided us while placing bids, contributing his vast knowledge and experience to optimize proposals. At that point we understood that the qualities Avi brings with him are far more than what we were aware of.
A particularly strong quality is his network. He simply knows them all. He can instantly call a mortgage broker, a construction contractor, relevant realtors, etc., upon need; each of those has a long and deep relationship with Avi, and will happily give all relevant information and services as needed for the process, even over weekends. And when required, Avi knew how to push all involved parties, strongly and elegantly, to maximize our benefit.
Another strong quality of Avi is his communication with his customers, and specifically, his ability to detect and properly address every barrier and difficulty, no matter how small or personal. If it wasn’t for Avi’s communication skills, we would still be in the search for a house. He convinced us to believe in our ability to buy the house we eventually went for, and today it seems to be one of the greatest deals we ever made. Even after the purchase completed, Avi was still there, every second, to offer his valuable help and guidance for the move into the new house.
In short, as far as Avi is considered, our appreciation and trust are total. He is truly one of a kind. We cannot even think of working with anyone else on real estate, and we warmly recommend the same to everyone. Be prepared to work with a top-league professional, with great personality and unusual level of commitment.”

“As we dived into the process, which is often complicated and stressful, we were very happy and satisfied with our choice of Avi.
Avi is available 20/7 (I think he sleeps about 4 hours a night..:). whatever questions we had, even today, we know we can always call him, and get the best possible answer.
For Avi, IT’S CRUCIAL THAT HIS CUSTOMERS WILL BE WHOLEHEARTEDLY Â HAPPY WITH THEIR DECISION.
Avi knew to address all of our concerns, fears and doubts. And as a first time home buyer, we had many of those.
Avi always pointed out the pros and cons of each property we saw. He knew to bring other professionals such as contractors, to advise us regarding future works on the houses. He knew very well the neighborhoods we were, and the options at that point of time in the market.
Our process was relatively short and painless. Avi was also very professional in the closing process, which is exhausting and long. He is a great negotiator, and he made it almost easy for us.
As a person Avi is very nice and friendly, he is calm, has a lot of patient, and respect to others. It is very easy to work with him, and he earned our trust very quickly.
There is no other Realtor I would recommend.
CHOOSING AVI WILL BE THE BEST DECISION YOU’LL MAKE WHEN BUYING OR SELLING YOUR HOME.”

“There are 3 important things that make a great real estate agent:
Knowledgeable of the market so he can identify the best value properties meeting client’s needs and get the property for the client among other bids. Understand the complexity and process of purchase, so the client is protected and prepared every step on the way. Excellent with people and has a network of experts (i.e. attorney, financing options etc.) to assist the client in closing the deal fast and properly.
Avi Urban is just this kind of agent. We truly enjoyed working with him buying a condo in Los Altos area. First of all, Avi provided us excellent perspectives and advice, leveraged his network of experts to enable us to quickly get all the paperwork and preparation in place to close the escrow. It took us only 1 month to purchase the condo and we were supported every step on the way with top notch service and expert advice. Avi is the best agent we have ever worked with!”
