We had a complicated sale of my late aunt's house in the Hollywood Hills. It was a trust sale, and to make things more difficult, there was a reverse mortgage on the house. We interviewed a couple of real estate agents, but only Jimmy really stuck with us. I think the other agent looked at the complications of the sale and decided to head for the hills, but that was just as well, because Jimmy turned out to be the right person for this sale. Jimmy persisted on this sale, despite numerous setbacks. In addition, he really helped make the process easier - arranging for the appraisal, showing up at the house when people came to set it up for the sale (I'm in the SF bay area and my sister is in Orange County, so he saved us lots of mileage and inconvenience by doing this). I am not sure we would have sold the house without Jimmy's persistence and support, especially considering that the reverse mortgage company was just aching to get a chance to consume the entire sale price and tried numerous tricks to be able to do so. Jimmy helped us to avoid the pitfalls of this as well. I would absolutely not hesitate to recommend him, especially for Hollywood Hills properties. He knows the clientele, the market, and how to prepare the house for the best possible offers. He's also a nice, gregarious guy who is consistently pleasant to deal with no matter what headwinds you encounter on a sale.

Jimmy handled the sale of our condo in August 2014. He was conscientious, attentive to our objective and demonstrated great knowledge of the business throughout the entire transaction. His immediate access to current and historical market data and frequent follow up were essential to finalize everything seamlessly. He was knowledgable throughout every step, from setting the price, assisting in negotiations, and facilitating the endless documents needed to close. Jimmy will tell you like it is; good, bad , and indifferent to move things forward. He was available 24/7 , a real plus during a hectic time for us. If you want things done smoothly and effectively, Jimmy is your realtor.

Jimmy Bayan Achieves Excellence - John Aaroe Group My husband met Jimmy on a walk around our neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills, as Jimmy was out and about. We was impressed with him and discussed possibly selling our rental property in the Hollywood Hills at sometime in the future. We had an unexpected situation with the property in November. My tenant vacated 7 months early, did not give notice & left the house in need of quite a bit of work. We were really stressed & concerned as my tenant was a real challenge & we were in Texas. I called Jimmy with the details of our situation and he immediately assured me he could help. He arranged to have the house necessary repairs made efficiently and reasonably to get it ready for sale. Jimmy knows the market and what buyers are looking for. Once the home was in condition to sell, we listed it and immediately got a contract for a good price with a 30 day close. All went well with the appraisal, inspections, and negotiations. We closed on time and all parties are pleased. We did this all via phone, computer, wire, fax and FedEx. Didn't have to travel to CA for anything. Jimmy saw to ever-single detail smoothly and efficiently. I have worked with many agents in my professional life as a Broker/Relocation consultant for 35 years & without a doubt Jimmy is a fantastic agent, Hard working, . Professional and motivated. He anticipated our needs, kept us on target through out the process, getting documents signed, inspections & appraisal scheduled, negotiating, removing contingencies well within the necessary time frames. We never had to ask for updates, he was constantly in touch with updates, assurances and advise. It has been a pleasure for us to work with him. Thank you Jimmy for all your hard work

Jimmy is a class act. He has this really straight-forward style that I love. He was my agent when I bought my Tri-Plex. I was in a 1031 Exchange after my divorce and was anxious to get into a property. I called Jimmy to show me a building on Centinela Blvd on the West Side. It was a duplex that needed some work, It was small, but I felt it would work for me. Jimmy walked inside looked around and walked out. He said; "You don't want this, lets be patient and look for a deal" - At that point I knew he had my best interest at heart. Later in the week, he took me out to look a some more properties. Just when we were about to quit, he asked me to see one more in Mid City and BINGO I was floored. Jimmy guided me through this nightmare escrow where the seller tried to cancel the sale after accepting our offer. The end result was I purchased my beautiful, Spanish Style, 3-Unit in a fantastic neighborhood at nearly the same price as the duplex Jimmy had urged me not to buy. Not only does it cover my mortgage, but provides a couple thousand dollars beyond that. Jimmy is a shrew negotiator, yet the consummate professional. Through this rocky transaction, he never flinched and assured me it will work out favorably. I can't say enough. He's prompt, always kept me in the loop through the escrow with updates. I refer him all my friends and family, because I know they are getting the best representation in Los Angeles. I don't know a harder working agent in LA. He's a great father and husband, also. Don't hesitate to call him if you want the best!

Jimmy is an incredible agent! He made the process of buying our new home easy and painless. He took care of every concern and really went the extra mile for us. We followed all of his expert advice to the letter and it paid off...we now own the beautiful celebrity home of our dreams! Jimmy is a class act and we are so glad we chose him as our agent! We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell !!

If you're selling your house or condo you MUST call Jimmy! He assessed my condo and put forth a strategy to get the best price. From staging to photos to reaching out to other realtors, jimmy was aggressive and it paid off. I sold the condo in less than a week at the highest price of any comparable unit In my building or on my street. Even larger units sold for less. Jimmy told me what we could expect and he delivered. And... He's a good guy to boot.

Jimmy sold my house In the Hollywood Hills. I chose him over other realtors because of his knowledge of the Hollywood Hills, and in particular, his knowledge of my house and the architect who designed it. He really knew the inventory and the area market very well. He had great energy and was very positive. He had great photos taken and got the listing on Curbed LA. All in all, I feel the house was priced well, and we got a good price for it.
- Terry Ackerman, Hollywood Hills, CA
The house had been listed with another agent and agency during the summer of 2014. The there was not much traffic or response to the listing. When I decided to re-list in 2015 I was VERY careful about picking an agent. I interviewed many agents and a few who I liked ALMOST as much as Jimmy. But Jimmy was my guy. He took the time to talk to me about what I might do differently and more importantly, what he would do differently for the new listing. It worked!!! All the details were handled effortlessly. I knew what to expect and what to do each step of the way. I had never sold a house and needed coaching. I was really happy with the whole experience

Jimmy sold our house in the Hollywood Hills. He's very knowledgable about the area and had previously interviewed the architect of our unique home so he had a good understanding of the property and how it should be marketed. He priced the house well, hired a great photographer, got us on Curbed which resulted in good turnouts for the open houses. An above asking offer was on the table within a couple weeks. Once the offer was in, he was totally on top of all aspects of the escrow process. He communicated well any milestones that might be coming up and took care of pretty much everything, we had total peace of mind through the final closing. All in all, extremely happy with the service Jimmy provided.
- Eric Brown, Hollywood Hills, CA
Jimmy is nothing short of a rock star. Truly, his knowledge of real estate, friendly and pleasant demeanor and dedication to personally ensuring the complete happiness of his clients is unbelievable. My husband and I fortuitously stumbled upon Jimmy when he was selling some of the neighboring properties in our area. He asked if we had considered selling ourselves, and we casually answered "yes", not knowing what to expect. Well, Jimmy began forwarding us personalized recommendations based on the criteria we had expressed we wanted in our dream house. His picks for housing were dead-on with our personalities and desires, and appropriately priced. He really listened to our feedback to ensure he was sending us listings relevant to our preferences. Fast forward a few months and we are living in the house of our dreams - a gorgeous house that is as unique and quirky as my husband and I. :) Moreover, every single step of the process was made seamless by Jimmy's tireless efforts to support us. He would oversee contractors when we were unable to make time. He reviewed documentation with a professional eye and acted as a liason day and night with banking agents, the client and the other representatives. He is currently assisting us with selling our old house, which under his guidance, got an offer literally the same day of the first open house. Jimmy, you are so much more than a real estate agent to my husband and I. We cannot thank you enough or commend all of your many wonderful traits with accurate enough praise. You are a gem, a gentleman and a friend. I strongly urge anyone reading this looking for property-related representation to go with Jimmy.
