Haig in a phenomenal realtor. I’ve worked with him on mortgage transactions for his buyers. Time n time again I see him go above and beyond for his buyers, choosing to do what’s right over just getting it done. Haig is a delight to talk to and he is always quick to get us any paperwork we need which in turn allows us to give our mutual clients superior service. Working with Haig will give a pleasant home buying experience.
I normally do not write reviews, but I believe our realtor, Haig deserved one. My father passed away, and my mom had to put the house up, we went through Haig to short sale their home. He was very prompt, very friendly, and given our situation, very sympathetic. He also went over and beyond, to take the weight off our shoulders where the house was concerned. He sold my parents home within 2 weeks of it being up for sale. I absolutely would recommend him, we had a very pleasant experience working with him.
Haig was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the sales transaction. He new about the marketplace, helped us through the entire viewing process, provided us with comparable properties so that we could make a sound decision. He responded to all inquiries in a timely and well thought out fashion and was always prompt for our meetings. He also helped in providing valuable insight through the negotiation process and making sure our interests were protected. We actually felt that he truly was working to make us happy.
Having Haig as our realtor helped take the stress out of house shopping. He was always available to answer our many questions and address our concerns. He’s polite, knowledgable, professional and truly wants to help you find your dream home. After working with him, I recommended him to several friends, who also chose to hire Haig as their realtor. They, too, were pleased to have worked with him and thank me numerous times for the recommendation. If you’re looking for a genuine, smart realtor, Haig is your guy!
Haig helped me find my condo, after numerous attempts with another agent, who didn’t seem like she had the time to show me anything. He is a real good guy, I liked him.
Throughout my experience when purchasing a home this past year Haig was always very supportive, encouraging, and very helpful with me attaining a home. Throughout the time I gained a lot of trust and support with him as my agent. I would recommend him to anyone that I know who would have a interest in buying a home.
Haig helped us to find the perfect house for our family. He was available throughout the day and into the late evening as needed. Same day showings were never a problem. He’s knowledgable, honest, goes the extra mile to make sure his clients are taken care of. Highly recommended!
My wife and I bought our first home with Haig as our realtor last year. He exceeded our expectations in every way through the entire process – from our first handshake, until the close of our new house. He is nothing short of a remarkable agent. His enthusiasm, communication, knowledge of the market place, and customer service are second to none. Buying our new home was a great and comfortable experience, thanks to Haig.
I worked with Haig to purchase our family home. He was professional, listened to our needs, responsive and showed us multiple homes with patience and when we found the right one, he was a master negotiator. He truly made the process simple and easy. I highly recommend him.
Haig has helped my buy over 20 houses in the last year. He is very responsive and professional and it is obvious he cares about the needs of his clients. He found a listing I did not know about that was perfect for my disabled sister, so I was able to move her out of subsidized housing.
I have worked with Haig on the purchase of 5 different single family homes as investment properties over the last 18 months. Even though my typical purchase is less than $50,000.00 Haig still is very responsive, professional, and ready to work. I’ve referred Haig (which is something I rarely do) to someone looking to sell their home. The seller was extremely pleased with how hard Haig worked to sell their home and has thanked me numerous times for making the connection.
Haig is very knowledgeable about todays market and has helped me complete transactions that were bank owned, government owned, and short sales. All of these types of transactions take knowledge and experience to complete and he has been successful in helping learn how different each of these situations can be.
We highly recommend Haig, he’s an excellent realtor. He first help set up our home to sell quickly in this bad economy, then once we listed our home we received lots of offers. He help us choose who best to go with and from then on the process moved very quickly. He was on top of everything; He had out interest in mind the whole time. We actually sold our home for more than what we listed it for.
Haig, was extremely helpful during my whole home buying experience. He helped me find my house. Helped me with all the paper work associated with buying a house. And even helped my find a trust worthy house inspector! I would us Haig again the next time I buy a home. A++ in my book
I received a referral for Haig from one of my customers who uses Haigs service frequently. The day my husband and I contracted with Haig to list the house in Clinton Township I expected he would be like the 3 previous realtors I used to purchase/sell property. How delightfully wrong I was! He immediately sent the listing to more agents than I could have wished for and it was viewed, online, by hundreds of buyers. Within the first week the home was shown multiple times and in 10 days we had an offer that we accepted. I wish I would have known Haig years and years ago. I honestly have never had ANY realtor work for me like Haig did. You think they will because they’re paid on commission but that is far from reality. Start with the best; hire Haig for your real estate needs. You will be very pleased with that decision.
Haig is very prompt, professional and is thorough with his clients. He does his research and makes sure he finds the right house for you. He also is very honest.
It has been a real pleasure to have Haig manage the listing and sale of our home. He was always well prepared with pertinent information and details, listened carefully to our goals and needs, consistently followed up with responses to our questions and concerns and provided status updates on a regular basis. Extremely conscientious and hard working, he makes every effort to represent his client’s interests with honesty and integrity. You can be confident Haig will serve you well.
It was fate! And a case of extreme nesting…Haig was the seller’s agent on one of the homes my husband and I looked at when we first started our home search (I was SEVEN months pregnant and decided we needed a new home IMMEDIATELY). We weren’t working with an agent at that point and he met us at the house and showed us around – he wasn’t pushy, he was very friendly, accomodating and answered questions as they came. We knew after that initial meeting that he was a great agent and we asked him to be our buyer’s agent AND seller’s agent. It was a simultaneous transaction between selling our current home and buying a new one and he was amazing to work with. I’d get email responses sometimes at 2am and he went above and beyond what we ever expected. Within about 3 weeks we had contracts on both the house we were selling and the new home we purchased. It seemed like we were his only clients! Thank you Haig!
I am a professional ASHI home inspector, so I interact with REALTORS on a daily basis. As in all professions there are good, great and not so great type people working their craft. Haig is at the top of his class. I’ve known Haig for about 8 years and I’ve observed the way he interacts with his clients. You can expect nothing short of hardworking professionalism.
Haig is a great realtor. I recently both a property in Rochester, MI and Haig was my buyer’s agent. Usually house/property hunting is a stressful process. Haig made it really stress free and fun experience for me and my family. We start looking for a house, but along with the process we realized that the properties on the market doesn’t fit our expectations and budget. Then we decide to buy a vacant land and build our dream house. Haig really help us understand all the cons and pros of building a house. Looking for an empty lot is not the same as looking for a house. In todays economy, you can have a hard time finding a way to finance the purchase if you don’t have the money cash. Price negotiation is also completely different, because of the limit finance options, no competition and stubborn owners. Haig help us in every step of the process. He has great knowledge and experience in the realestate, lots of connections, very responsive and hard working. As a first time buyer of an empty lot and building a new house, we had high expectations and requirements about the properties, lot’s a questions and lot’s of concerns for everything. Haig is really patient, had an answer for almost everything and help us understand the process. We are really happy to have Haig on our side. Strongly recommend him for anyone looking for a good realtor.
Haig is the best realtor out there. He ALWAYS answers his phone. You can get a hold of him at any time. With Haig’s magic, made 3 purchases with in 3 weeks. He also knows the neighbor hood well and has great advise. Test my review and call, text, or e-mail him right. You wont be disappointed.
I’ve been working with Haig for a couple months now. I found him as I was looking to purchase a couple rental properties in the Detroit area. While there were others I contacted, he seemed to be the most up front. He also has good connections with some of the area property managers, rehaber’s etc all of which I will need as an out of area investor as someone will have to manage the property and when repairs are necessary, someone will need to take care of it. I’ve been kind of peticular about the properties I want and while I have a couple offers in and am looking at others in case they fall through, he’s been right there to offer local expertice.
Haig has the superb expertise to sell property with professionalism and successful results. Haig did everything possible to improve the appearance of the house we had up for sale. He even cleaned the house himself! Haig recommended to remove carpeting that was not esthetically pleasing. Essentially, Haig was able to bring an offer only 2 weeks after the house was vacant. After diligent negotiating, the offer eventually turned into a sale and the closing occurred quickly afterwards. I would recommend Haig Istamboulian for any future real estate transaction.
I have gone through the home buying process 4 times in the past 15 years, and by far Haig has been the best real estate agent I have worked with. In my 4th and most current home buying experience, Haig assisted me in buying a home that I feel would not have been able to buy with a less competent agent. He is very knowledgeable on short sales and researching comparable house prices. He not only helped me secure my dream home, he helped me sell my current home. He made both the buying and selling process comfortable as I trusted his expertise. And because of the calm and stress-free attitude he exudes, he made what is normally a very stressful process (home buying/selling) much smoother than I thought possible. He is truly a professional not only in his knowledge and skills, but in his interactions and demeanor. I will highly recommend him to anyone I know in the market for a home.
I bought my first condo with Haig a few years ago and just closed on my second property. The first property everything was new for me, the entire process of owning a home. He spent the time with me to go over in detail what I actually wanted/needed for my current situation. We had met and talked over the phone zeroing in on the perfect condo. Haig was flexible with showing and accommodated all my needs. He is very quick to respond to calls/text/email. He is a great guy with a ton of knowledge in the real-estate and related fields. My second property purchase just completed mid June 2014. This time it was much quicker for I had an idea of what I wanted. I spent some time reviewing properties that Haig had been sending me and looked at half a dozen with Haig. After deciding he was there to clam my nerves (for it was a short sale). He as willing to go that extra mile to make sure all my questions and concerns were answered and addressed. I recommend Haig to all my friends and family.
I knew I had to move my family to Michigan(Royal Oak area) from Las Vegas back in March of 2014, for my new job and I wanted to buy a home for my family. Not knowing anyone from the area to ask for a good referral, I naturally went on zillow in search of a realtor. The excellent reviews about Haig by the previous buyers and sellers were just the tip of the iceberg. This realtor truly goes above and beyond what is required. I knew I wouldn’t be able to come in every weekend for house viewings and inspections, however, Haig reassured me that this wouldn’t be a problem and it wasn’t. As long as I liked a house from the pictures he would go to the home, take dozens of pictures and videos which made me feel like I was actually there myself without having to travel for 2000miles and spend money unnecessarily if at the end I didn’t like the home. What is even more surprising is that he gave me his honest opinion without worrying about selling the house. Its remarkable to find a salesperson who is trying to first and foremost make his customer happy rather than his bank account. It seems like his philosophy is to make his clients pleased and everything else will follow. He is extremely knowledgeable and involved throughout the whole process. Did I mention that he also responds to texts, emails and phone calls within minutes? It also helped tremendously the fact that he was tech savvy since I had to do most of my paperwork electronically. This realtor works overtime to make sure his clients are satisfied. The first time my wife and I saw the house was at the day of the closing when we had just moved into town. The house was exactly as Haig had described from his personal walk through, it was even better than the pictures had depicted. My wife was extremely happy with the place, which is probably part of the reason why I am able to write this review. He earned my business, my trust and my friendship through hard work and dedication, going above and beyond what any other realtor could have possibly done. THANK YOU Haig!!!
Haig did a great job and I highly recommend him! Being new to the country it was hard to find the agent I can trust to help me geting the house I want. Haig understood quickly what I am looking for and I was surprized how good he judged the real value of the homes we looked at. He respond always immediately to my text messages and at any time like he is working 24/7! His advices were always really helpful and his very friendly attitude was very helpful during the negotiation process. I can only highly recommend him to every one! Thank you once again for everything, Haig!
We hired Haig for both the sale of our home and the purchase of a new condo. He was instrumental in getting us above list on our home and devised a strategy that secured our new condo below list and beat out 8 other offers. He created so much pre-showing interest in our home that we had 18 appointments in less than 2 days. We accepted an offer and took the house off the market on the 3rd day. He worked tirelessly with the other agents to keep both deals clean and at closing was complimented by the other agents who both worked for large real estate firms.
If you want an agent who is hands on, owns his own company, has all the latest technology, market awareness and takes every deal very personal this is who we would recommend.
We have just closed on the new home and our experience working with Haig have been absolutely excellent. Haig made this whole process very smooth, efficient and even enjoyable for us. His calm, methodical, detailed approach ensured all the angles of home selection, inspection and purchase were covered. His availability and consistant communication ensured that we knew where we were in the process at all times and his friendly, empathetic approach made as feel safe and well represented. His fast action in scheduling the viewing is the reason why in-spite of the competition from other buyers, our family can now enjoy our dream home. I would highly recommend Haig for any of your real state needs.
Haig was very knowledgeable about comparable properties in the area and was able to sell my house in two days. He was also quick to communicate back to me about buyers interested in my property and was able to sell my home for above the asking price.
Haig worked with me recently as my buyer agent. I can’t say enough of his attention to detail, professionalism and exhaustive efforts in finding my family the home that fit our needs. We had a very particular set of needs and we knew from the start that finding that “perfect” home was not going to be an easy feat. Haig was confident that he could help and patiently worked with us to find our dream home. He did an excellent job of keeping us informed of his progress and spent many hours finding and showing us homes that fit our list of needs. Haig was always prompt, courteous and very personable. He spent ample time showing the homes and we were never hurried or rushed. Haig is a true professional in every sense of the word. He is a person who truly cares and goes the extra mile. I will recommend him to all of my family and friends who are looking to buy or sell their homes!
My wife and I recently chose Haig Istamboulian to guide us through our first time home buying experience. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Haig’s work ethic is excellent. He constantly treated us like we were his first priority. Haig provides his clients with every resource available to help them find the perfect home. I was very unfamiliar with the home buying process when my wife and I initially approached Haig. Haig guided us through every step of the process with his vast knowledge of the reality market. I work odd hours and it seemed like Haig was available to answer my questions no matter what time it was. Haig works tirelessly to get his clients in their new home. I have already recommended Haig to several of my friends and family members who may be in the market for a new home soon. I recommend that you choose him as well.
Haig is a great realtor who is knowledgeable in his field. He gave us comparable pricing on the local housing market which made it easy to compare houses by price/square foot. He responds promptly to inquiries and questions via email, text and phone and works with your schedule to show houses of interest. He is friendly and has a great sense of humor which helps alot during the home buying process. He strives to represent the buyer during the closing process as well. He goes above and beyond which makes it easy to recommend him for your home buying and selling needs.
Very Professional Realtor with a lot of advice and experience. He worked with me for several months to find the right home. Haig worked around my schedule and always was prompt with information. I would not have been able to close on my house without his help, I would personally recommend Haig to anyone interested in starting the home buying experience.
I would recommend Haig for listing another house. He is very knowledgeable of the industry and was always responsive of any and all questions that were thrown at him. He showed my place and sold it in a reasonable amount of time and the closing went smooth with no hassles. thanks again for a GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!
Haig was very responsive throughout the entire process. My wife and I had a unique list of criteria we wanted in a house and Haig was able to find a perfect match. Haig was also able to be creative in the process to help out our timing issues. Without Haig, my wife and I would not have found the right place for our family.
Haig was recommended to us by an individual from work to support the sell of our home. He took the time to understand us and also our needs in this. Within a week we had multiple offers for our property and was able to sell it rather quickly. when we were ready to purchase we again contacted Haig to support this. His knowledge of the market and the area we were searching proved to be beneficial in finding the right home we recently purchased. Throughout the lengthly purchase process Haig was always available to answer questions and keep us updated to the status. In the end Haig proved more than just a realtor, he became a friend and we would recommend him to sell or help you purchase a home.
Haig was recommended to me by my finance as an individual who would work closely with me to sell my home. He took the time to understand my needs and necessity to obtain a maximum offer on my home. His knowledge of the market, area and in depth explanation of the process and what to expect convinced me he was the right Realtor for the job. Within days i had multiple offers for my property and was able to sell it rather quickly at full asking price. In the end i was extremely satisfied with his services and would recommend him to anyone i know in need of a Realtor.
We had a great experience with Haig. We had approximately two weeks to find a place to rent and have everything finalized, and Haig accomplished that. He called me back within an hour of my initial contact, and lined us up with potential houses to look at immediately. If I had any questions or concerns, he responded quickly every time. When part of the process stalled out, he was the one making sure all issues were resolved. It literally could not have been more effortless on our end.
Wonderful experience. Very proactive, prompt and responsive. Took the lead on coordinating with the listing agent and an out of town homeowner. Kept everything moving and got it done. I work nights and I was getting e-mail responses from early in the morning to midnight. Made me wonder if he sleeps.
My husband and I needed to find a place to rent on short notice and in a crazy renting market! I wasn’t sure if any realtors would take the time to help renters find a lease, but Haig and his colleague Rene went above and beyond our expectations! They made themselves available to show us several properties at a moment’s notice. They also negotiated to make us the first choice for our property. I am so grateful and have nothing but positive things to say about our experience. I highly recommend Haig if you are looking for a home!
As a recent college graduate, I have lived in a lot of rental units. Mostly they have been apartments in a complex or less than fantastic houses near campus. After getting a full time job, I was looking for something a little more permanent. Haig helped me and my roommate find a place that we really love and was more than willing to work with us, seeing as my roommate is gone for his Army training. He was very thorough in making sure that everything was up to our standards and made sure to follow all the way through with the process. I would definitely recommend him to my closest friends and family.
I was living out of state so had to really rely on my realtor in helping me find a place, which he did! He was very knowledgeable in the area and went out of his way to secure a nice place in a great neighborhood. I was truly blessed having him as my realtor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to relocate!
Ryan and I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor than Haig. From the first house that he showed us, to the house that we ended up purchasing, Haig was wonderful. He never pushed us or insisted that we did anything we weren’t ready for. He was extremely patient, and offered great advice throughout the process. He made our first time home buying process a smooth and easy one! The house that we ended up purchasing already had other offers, but from his expertise, we were able to negotiate and purchase our dream house in our dream neighborhood for under asking! We have already recommended Haig to many of our friends and will continue to do so. – Katelyn & Ryan (first time home buyers)
We couldn’t of asked for a better person to sell our home. Haig was fabulous! He worked hard, kept us informed , saw to every detail. You can tell when someone loves their job, he truly does! I’m so glad we found him.
Haig really knows his stuff, he was great to work with and answered all my silly questions. I would highly recommend Haig next time you are buying property. He stays on top of things and keeps you updated. My case wasn’t the easiest and his advice during the process was invaluable.
Haig is a mutual friend of good friends which violates my #1 rule of NEVER working with friends, but I am very glad I ended up partnering with him – and it truly felt like a partnership. Haig not only sold my home in a weekend but helped me manage the challenges (mostly emotional) associated with “downsizing”. Haig was EXTREMELY professional (so rare in a realtor). He cared, really knew the market and was organized, responsive and worked tirelessly on my behalf – all qualities I believe make a great real estate professional. I’m in sales so am a tough judge – but I always try to put myself in a client’s shoes and ask WIIFT (what’s in it for them) – that was his guiding principle. I can say that working with Haig was one of the best business decisions I ever made – my advice – hire him!
As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I were more than just slightly nervous, and we did not know where to even start with the whole process. Our friend recommended Haig to us, so we got in touch with him via email. He responded in a very timely manner, and got us kick started with the house hunting right away. He is very personable and always made us feel at ease. He was also very accommodating with our last minute requests to see houses. We originally were looking in Chesterfield, but ended up purchasing in Royal Oak, and Haig knew both markets very well. I truly can’t emphasize how appreciative we are that he smoothly guided us through this whole process!
Working with my realitor, Haig, was a great experience! I will use him for all my future housing needs. He is efficient and goes out of his way to accommodate you.. Highly recommend.
Good guy, helped us through every aspect of our home sale. Ran open houses everyweekend. Home sold quickly and for a good price. He also answers phone calls and emails very quickly. I would use Haig again.
Haig was top notch! He sold our home quickly and handled everything with no stress on us! He always answered our phone calls, texts and emails promptly. We were very pleased with Haig’s professionalism and would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs! We will be using him to buy our next home!
We loved working with him. We found him by serendipity when we wanted to look at a house and he definitely was our advocate from the start.. . .he told us he is a “numbers guy” (and detailed oriented and a very astute observer) and he showed that repeatedly throughout the process for these first time home buyers. We told him what we were looking for and he catered to what we wanted (but he isnt pushover guy who just wants to make the sale and tell you what you want to hear; he will always be upfront with you). When we finally found the house that met our initial criteria he guided these first time home buyers through all the important minutiae of home buying and we closed on the first home we made an offer without any glitches and we owe it all to Haig! Haig without a doubt is detailed oriented, cool-headed and values the importance of building long-lasting professional business relationships as he surrounds himself with quality people from the bank lenders, title people, to home inspectors, to handy men etc. He showed his value and “brain surgery” approach to home buying throughout the process but in particular when it mattered most (i.e. (1) what steps we needed to close on house (2) keeping his cool during the closing process when there was a small “glitch” (the other title person and seller who is a real estate agent lost their cool while Haig and “his people” kept their cool throughout the whole process). My wife and I recommend Haig HIGHLY and feel you would be making a mistake not going with him and this is coming from a guy who is detailed-oriented and CDO (so obsessive compulsive disorder type I re-arranged the acronym letters for OCD in alphabetical order). We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Haig!!
Haig went above & beyond helping my family sell our beloved fathers condo after he passed away. I can’t say enough good things about Haig. The guys a machine – available 24/7 for his clients & a boss at negotiating a deal!
Haig was extremely helpful in the selling of our condo! As soon as we were ready to sell, he came over to take pictures and that night he had our condo listed. He made everything so easy for us. He was always available to answer questions no matter the time of day. He worked extremely hard for us and we were completely satisfied with everything. We would recommend Haig to all our friends!
We were very impressed with Haig’s explanation of the market, when sales picked up and when sales were low. Gave us a thorough break down of homes comparable to the home we were selling in our area. Advertising was awesome. Was extremely pleased with the open house he had and the advertising that went into it. Amazing the amount of people that came through and interesting to hear their thoughts, ideas and comments about the house. He kept us informed through the whole process. He was always available for any questions we would have anytime. We never could have done this without his guidance and patience with us. This was my sister-in-laws house and we would love to have Haig sell our home when we are ready to move on.
We purchased our new home and sold our previous home with Mr. Haig’s help and I couldn’t have been happier with the job he did. Throughout the entire process he was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He took my complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered (honestly and candidly) every dumb question I could come up with. He was always available when I would send him messages. Once I was ready to make an offer Mr. Haig was invaluable in helping me prepare and schedule inspections. In less than one day he was able to put together a very competitive offer in time for the offer review date. He kept in constant communication with the selling agent and provided critical advice on improving my offer in the 11th hour that ended up winning the deal. Without his help I would not be currently living in my dream house. In addition to Mr. Haig has tons of patient to explain all the details of your each question. He is very honest and down to earth person. I will say that he is the best professional in the field of real estate and a perfect person to deal with.
During my experience in selling my home I was very impressed with Haig. He kept me level headed during this stressful time and was always up to date on any new issues. Knowing we didn’t have much time to sell the home, Haig got it done in less then 4 months. My home had been on the market for over 2 years with no real leads to an offer. Once Haig took over we had 4 different offers and multiple showings. I know this was a hard situation for him, but he maintained professionalism the whole way through. He never gave up and made the sale happen! I couldn’t be more happy with him and will recommend Haig to any of my friends. Thank you again for all you help and a start to a new journey for me. Nicole Beausoleil
He went above and beyond with his job, and also was very knowledgeable in all types of loans. Haig Istamboulian was very experienced in all types of loans as well. It was also very helpful with his recommendations for financing. And he was also knowledgeable with construction of homes. And an important detail to add is that he always replied to all my phone calls, and texts. And one trait that stood amongst all the others, he did his best getting all the houses that I wanted to see. All in all, I have never had a better realitor that helped me with this move like him.
Working with Haig make you experience textbook customer service and comprehensive knowledge of end to end process. I have been working with him last 8 years and sense of trust have grown 10 folds in these years. He helped me in buy/sell homes, manage/rent homes , help me negotiating contracts with tenants and guide me through whole process. I highly recommend his services and wish him a good luck.
Having done business with Haig on multiple occasions, I can assure that he is always helpful with showing properties and offering valuable advice. He has a good understanding of the area and is more that willing to show multiple properties until you arrive at one you really like. He always sends emails in a timely manner, and it is always a pleasure dealing with Haig.
My wife and I recently purchased a home with the help of Haig and Rene. We were very specific about the budget we wanted to stick to. Haig was incredibly respectful of this and treated us as though were his number 1 client. We had a few unusual circumstances pop up throughout the process, and Haig was there to help us out and guide us through them. While remaining optimistic and helpful, he never sugar coated anything at the same time. If you are looking for an honest and attentive agent, look no further. We’re so thankful we found our fixer upper. Looking forward to having Haig help us when we are finished with this house to find another!
Working with Haig was a great experience. He was professional in every way. Always prompt to pick us up when looking for a condo. Keeping us informed when people became interested in our house. Showing great patience when it came to explaining details to my wife. Always explaining to our satisfaction. Returning our phone calls in a timely manner. He was a busy guy but always had time for us. He carefully walked us through all facets of closing and was there for both closings. He was always truthful when dealing with us and was genuinely concerned if we had a problem. We really got to know Haig and at the closing my wife knowing that he has 5 woman at home (4 Daughters and a wife) offered him the use of one of our bathrooms.
My husband and I are newly married, and had decided it was time to start looking to purchase our first home. We were referred to Haig by a recent client of his. I started looking up reviews of Haig to see what others had to say about him and I was instantly blown away with all of the excellent reviews. We decided to move forward with his services. From day one, Haig answered all questions and made purchasing a home an enjoyable and fun event in our lives. Whenever we found a home we wanted to see, he made it happen at the soonest possible time. I think there was only one instance that we weren’t able to see a house on the day it came available, and that had nothing to do with Haig’s efforts. If we had any questions we were instructed to text, call, or email at any time, day or night, and he would have our questions answered in an amazingly short time frame. His response time and reliability were unheard of from a service standpoint. Once we found our home, Haig worked on all the details and any hassles that occurred on the seller’s side as to make the process as easy as possible for us. We were able to close and get moved in at a perfect time to move out of our apartment and start our new life and none of it would’ve been possible without Haig’s excellent service and efforts to find us our home! Working with Haig was nothing like we thought it would be. He truly became like a friend to us and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.
From the start (about 2 years ago) Haig has been by far the easiest part of the home buying process. We were very picky and took a long time deciding between location, condo or house, price point, etc. and the entire time Haig was calm, helpful and always available. We never felt pressured to buy something we didn’t want or couldn’t afford and we never felt rushed by him. Working with Haig was like working with a close family member, someone who listened to our needs and even brought up concerns of his own that we had not thought of. Long before and after the purchase Haig was available 24/7 and we never waited more than a few minutes for a call back or email. The upfront honesty and knowledge he had was invaluable. We really could not have gone through this process without him…planning a wedding and buying a house in the same year is tough but with Haig it felt easier to accomplish. We can’t wait to work with Haig on our next home (in 10 years)!!
Selling a home is a stressful endeavor but working with Haig, he made it extremely easy. He was very detailed with an explanation of the process and was patient with my many questions. Knowing what to expect along the way was so helpful. When discussing the selling price of my house Haig was very prepared and I was pleasantly surprised to be able to list my house for way more than I thought I could and in the end got $5k over what I wanted to sell it for. I didn’t like the negotiation part of the process as I guess I was taking it personally but Haig was very patient and calm with dealing with the other agent and the buyers. Haig made the entire process from start to finish easy and I so appreciated his knowledge and guidance. I would recommend him to friends and family selling or buying a home.
Haig took the time to understand us as a buyer. He listened to what was important for us to find in a home, offered his suggestions and insight into neighborhoods, and guided us in a positive direction. Once we found the property we were interested in, Haig provided valuable information regarding real estate comps so we could make a strong quality offer. Throughout the entire contract process Haig was quick to respond, and work with us to secure the deal. I would absolutely recommend Haig to my family and friends. He is an expert in his craft, and a great resource!
Home buying is a stressful situation and Haig allievated all of mine! We were from out of state and he really helped us with his extensive knowledge on the areas and neighborhoods to find our dream home. Haig pays close attention to his clients needs and wants. By the end of our time together, he could tell if I did not like a property before I even said anything. When home buying ,you can sometimes feel backed into a corner when it comes to the negotiating out the details of the sale. I really felt that Haig had my husband and my best interest when negotiating our great deal. We are very happy with our purchase and it would not have happened without Haig. After seeing multiple towns and listening to our wishes, Haig was the one who directed us to look at the town we are in now.
Haig did an awesome job as our realtor, we really felt that we had someone “in our corner” negotiating for us! He is very knowledgeable and comes to the showing prepared with data and information that a buyer wants and needs when taking the step towards purchasing a home. He negotiated the price down for us to a surprising number and kept us informed every step of the way!
If I have to move again, I’ll be calling Haig again. He found more houses to my specs than I had time to view. I work nights, and he was very accommodating of my schedule. He responds to e-mails very quickly; often within minutes. Perhaps most important, he surrounds himself with similarly minded support professionals. The seller’s agent remarked that this was the fastest close she had seen. I’m confident that if you hire him, he’ll take care of you.
– His schedule is flexible which worked very well for us. He was able to show us houses on week nights & Saturdays. – He does not push you to submit an offer so we were able to see many houses before submitting an offer. He guided us through the process well and his advice helped us a lot since we were new to the housing market. – His is very good at negotiating. He will cc you in the emails he sends to the listing agent so you can see the negotiation process. – He cares about his family and we loved his personality 🙂
Haig was OUTSTANDING – he knew everything there is to know about getting me into my perfect house. He made it happen quickly and easily. If you want to deal with someone with plenty of credible experience use Haig. Unbelievably friendly, helpful, and smart. Thank you so much for getting me into such a great home!
Excellent experience! Haig Istamboulian had intimate knowledge of the neighborhood and real estate market in our area. He was always quick to respond to texts/emails and had deep knowledge of the entire process. It was a real pleasure to work with him. When looking to buy or sell your house – I definitely recommend going with Haig. You will not be disappointed!
Haig was wonderful to work with. While looking to purchase a new home he was always available to show us homes and answer any questions we might have had. During the selling of our current home he spent the time to take professional photos and give pointers on how to stage the home properly. We had multiple offers within days of listing. I would definitely recommend Haig to anyone buying or selling!
Very attentive and helpful at helping me find a home. Haig showed us multiple homes and was very patient. He was very well educated about the area, and showed us a variety of homes in the Shelby Township area. I would most definently reccomend Haig to a friend or relative. He is an amazing agent and one of the best at what he does. He was very polite and professional.
Haig was extremely easy to work with. He made every effort to always be available to show homes even on short notice. He is professional and a pleasure to work with. His work ethic is second to none. Haig works tirelessly to meet all requirements and coupled with his strong knowledge of the marketplace will make the home buying experience much less stressful. He truly cares about helping every client find the perfect home.
Haig helped me find a house for my son who was a first time home buyer. He was able to provide several options for us to look at that had the features he was looking for in a home. I would definitely recommend Haig to other prospective home buyers based on his market knowledge and professionalism.
Haig has helped myself and my family in recent months find excellent choices for our homes. His honesty and understanding of financial restrictions was evident the entire time he worked with us. Mr. Istamboulian’s attention to detail and prompt communication were key in making us very happy with or purchases. I highly recommend Haig for an insightful and fair business interaction.
Haig has been very friendly and responsive. He has done a great job finding/showing us potential homes in the very trendy areas of Northville and Plymouth that fit our tastes and needs. We strongly recommend him to anybody looking to buy a home on the west side of the metro Detroit area. We look forward to continuing our search for a new home with Haig.
Haig went out of his way to accommodate us and our schedule. He was very knowledgeable not only of the area we were interested in but was meticulous in the details of the homes we looked at. He is ethical and kind and made an otherwise stressful time carefree. I would highly recommend Haig whether you are selling or buying a home!
We could not be any happier with Haig and the easy process he made of selling our home so quickly. Haig is a true professional who is responsive, helpful and gets the job done! I would recommend him to anyone and will use him the next time we sell a home!
Called Haig to schedule a viewing on a property. He failed to show up on the agreed time. After a couple failed attempts to reach him; he had called back stating that we had never agreed upon a specific time; furthermore, became irate stating that he had other appointments that took priority. Nonetheless, I still wanted to see the property and wanted to reschedule. Haig asked one question; If he did show the property to me, was I willing to make an immediate offer on the property, because there are 7 pending offers, some being cash and some are over the asking price (7 pending offers, cash and over asking price? Seriously?). If I wasn’t willing to make an offer immediately after viewing the house, then it would be a waste of his time. What kind of professionalism is this? Haig is rude and unprofessional. The audacity that he had to even make a comment like that, makes me wonder how is this individual in the real estate industry in the first place. What a total jerk! Haig needs to learn decent manners. He is completely and utterly a disappointment.
