We used Jihad Shakoor to sell our home in Pasadena, CA last spring and he was outstanding.
My family and I have worked with Jihad for over 15 years (he has assisted our family with many of our real estate needs). The reasons we have continued to work with are Jihad and Shakoor Realty are many: the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings. Jihad and Shakoor Realty stand out as the best our area has to offer, their social media presence is also strong, and I know they put a lot of work into their listings.
We met with Jihad at our home. He spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market and providing tons of info on comps in the area. Jihad made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don’t (but should), like having a pro come and give us staging tips, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more.
When we saw our listing we were blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off – our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. The second buyer that saw the property put in an offer.
Our house went under contract 10 days after we put it on the market over asking price. We accepted and Jihad walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience.
I’ve recommended the Jihad and Shakoor Realty to my family and to everyone I know. He’s a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it won’t always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a better Realtor.
