‟Purchasing your first home can be very stressful! Thanks to Max we were able to smoothly close on our home purchase in less than 30 days! Max was highly responsive and quick to communicate any concerns we had. He represented both me and the seller and was able to negotiate terms so we both benefit equally. THANK YOU MAX!”
‟Max represented us in a recent transaction (March 2018). He was very knowledgeable and extremely responsive. Day or night, weekday or weekend, Max answered our questions via phone, email and text. He has many connections with trades people and was generous in making introductions and assisting us with getting quotes for a variety of services. When … we decided to make a midstream change of lenders with only 2 weeks to close, Max worked with all the relevant parties to make sure we closed on time. As 2 professionals with business backgrounds, but only a handful of real estate transactions under our belt, we found working with Max to be easy and a pleasure. We would be pleased to work with Max again and would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends” Read More ▾
‟Great listings first of all. I've rummaged thru so many houses in original condition. The Helix Team, specifically phone calls and responsive text messages from Mr Max Armand, lead me back to his teams listings. I'm a buyer in turn key houses with modern amenities. My wife wanted a "tv house" with modern finishes. Open concept, energy efficient lig … hts and landscapes, and designer kitchen. I didn't think we could get a completely remodeled home with every upgrade but in my case I did! Working directly with the list agent, Mr Max Armand, I was able to negotiate all of the big upgrades I was looking for. Well my wife and our growing family. Mr Armand repeatedly mentioned how his growing team always makes time for new clients and asked point blank for referrals. Well here it is, if you are a buyer or seller in LA or San Diego give them a call. I got a great deal going with the listing agent. My wife and family thank you guys” Read More ▾
