"These guys do excellent job of communicating and getting the job done! I have worked with them on more than one occassion and am very appreciative of their level of service and professionalism."
"I am so grateful when I have the opportunity to do a 5 star. YEA ! ! ! I was selling a property that had dramatically lost value and had last minute complications, However, between Harout ( who pulled off a miracle AND a rabbit out of his hat ) and Maral who processed and negotiated, I was able to sell this property and walk away with some cash."
"The customer service and dedication my agent gave me through the process of my sale was phenomenal. The result of his efforts far surpassed any expectation I had of my chances in making out well in this process. Thank you guys so much! I'm forever a fan."
"It was my good fortune to be referred to Vera at a time when I was completely at sea regarding what to do about my monstrous home mortgage."

JohnHart Real Estate has been a godsend to my family. After my father passed away, we inherited properties that were upside down to the extreme and causing us severe financial hardship to continue owning. Enter Harout and Henry at JohnHart Real Estate, who handled two short sales for us in a very professional and ethical manner. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is tearing their hair out over what to do with their upside down property. JohnHart is highly experienced and competent at what they do. I believe Harout's backbone is made of solid steel. Everybody should have a bulldog like him in their corner. No matter how often we had questions, he always made himself available to us, patiently and kindly listening and addressing them, finishing by welcoming us to call him anytime with any further concerns (and he means it!).

By trusting Harout and following his sound, business minded advice, we have been rewarded with successful short sales as well as a significant sum of $$$ that we were not expecting, thanks to their expertise and powerful negotiating ability. My family is incredibly grateful to JohnHart for all that they have done to complete these short sales for us, all the while providing us with an amazingly stress-free experience. Our sincere thanks to Harout, Henry, Sona and the rest of the JohnHart team. They are masters at what they do. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!!

I was skeptical initially, as the bar was set high for a very difficult transaction. But Harout, Henry and his team delivered. Under an incredibly tight time frame and a facing a group of very combative lenders, they came through with flying colors. I would highly recommend them to anyone in a short sale position.

Their contacts, time management, ability to work in the local real estate community were all factors in being successful beyond my expectations. Thank you very much - you were great!!

"I highly recommend John Heart Real Estate. They helped me with a short sale of my condo in Garden Grove that I thought would be impossible. Maral was very professional and helped me navigate the short sale process with ease. Thank you so much everyone from John Heart Real Estate!"

As an Attorney I work with many entities and agencies on complex matters. My experience with John Hart Real Estate exceeded my expectation. They took a fairly complex deal and remained consistent and diligent in their efforts to reach an amicable resolution for all the parties involved. Mr. Shaknazaryan was readily available to answer questions. They provided a service that was transparent and are expeditors in the closing of escrow. I highly recommend using John Hart Real Estate for all personal and/ or business needs.

Going with John Hart was an awesome decision for me, and I HIGHLY recommend their service. I had the pleasure of working with Maral, who managed EVERYTHING for my sale and all other details involving my transaction. Communication was awesome, timely and very transparent. The staff is extremely professional and works very hard to represent your best interests at every point in the process. I can't say enough good things. Maral was awesome - ask for her -- but everyone who I interacted with was so stellar I don't think you can go wrong. Many thanks to the John Hart team for such a wonderful service.

What can I say about a realty company whose performance in handling my "short sale" surpassed my hopeful expectations and who turned a potentially traumatic event for me into a positive experience? The staff at JohnHart Real Estate, and especially the efforts of Vera Harvey, accomplished all that and more. I have the utmost admiration and appreciation for their integrity, their expertise, and their unfailing empathy for their clients. They have won my eternal gratitude and my highest recommendation.

I would highly and eagerly recommend Harout Keuroghlian and his company, JohnHart Real Estate! They were wonderful to work with! Not only did they get the job done and our condo sold ...they were professional, kind and a real pleasure to work with! Their responses to our questions were rapid and reliable. They knew us by name. We never feared we'd get lost in the system. Even though we are in San Diego County and they are in Glendale, we never felt like they were far away from us or from our situation.

Additional words of thanks and Kudos must go to Vera and Henry in the JohnHart office. They were great at their jobs, but never made us feel like we were "just another job" to them. Their personal caring for us and for our process went a long way in helping make what could have been a stressful process actually enjoyable! Oh, did I mention that our sale was a short sale and that we had already been trying to get the bank to complete a short-sale for us (with no success) for a year and a half before we heard about and engaged JohnHart? We are most thankful for them and wish them all the best! Check them out!

I RARELY GIVE 5 STARS. Look at my history and you will see I COVET 5 star ratings.

I am so grateful when I have the opportunity to do a 5 star. YEA ! ! ! I was selling a property that had dramatically lost value and had last minute complications, However, between Harout ( who pulled off a miracle AND a rabbit out of his hat ) and Maral who processed and negotiated, I was able to sell this property and I even walked away with some cash ! Let me say that again. I owed more to the bank than the property was worth and they were able to get me cash from the deal.

I am still waiting for the final check from the bank but already received a small part of my procedes. I will update this review once it is received.. The staff at John Hart was incredible.

Sona is a queen. Misan is great and Harout and Maral are magicians. This was a very VERY difficult sale for me and yet it worked out OK.

One of the girls, a professional who multitasks, ( Sona) said something to me that made a monster shift in my entire approach to what I am doing after this sale.

So a RARE RARE RARE 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.
Thanks Guys,

John K

UPDATE: I received the final check and the bank was dragging their feet to get it to me. Once again Harout called relentlessly to the bank and got my check in full. Bear in mind he did this AFTER the sale was cosed. I maintain my 5 star rating.

It was a tough experience letting go of this property, as it had a lot of personal history and memories. Henrik at John Hart was there through the whole process. They answered all of my questions and quelled all of my concerns. I highly recommend this team if you're looking to get the job done right. The where fast, efficient, cool-headed and found the best deal possible for my situation. Thanks again, John Hart!

This is a great company with hardworking agents. They currently specialize in short sales, but as any adept person knows if you can sell short sales, you can sell anything!

Needless to say no more. John Hart Real Estate is definitely the place you need to go when u need to sell your property. Henry at John Hart Real Estate has helped me short sale my house. I am very satisfied with his service. Everything went very well and to top it off, i got some extra cash to help me move

This was the most painless process that I have ever experienced. Henry Shaknazaryan was so pleasant and alway kept me up to date. I would highly recommend him and this firm to help you through a painful process.

Jennifer H. Sonoma, CA -11/27/2012

The entire team was excellent. Special thanks to Henrik, with whom we dealt most if the time and Moses who took fantastic photos of the property. Henrik stayed on top of everything and answered all our concerns with understanding and great professionalism. From the start they handled everything efficiently and kept us informed throughout. We only had to show our home for one day. They scheduled the showing at our convenience and it was taken the first afternoon. There were no costs to us, as they promised. Also, even thought they are far from us, they came to us as needed (three times) so we were not taken away from our business. I only wish, truly, that they had been compensated better for all their hard work. We HIGHLY recommend them.

They were incredible and extremely diligent in a very difficult real estate transaction they just completed for me. Very informative and a pure pleasure to work with. Thank You Harout, Henrick and Team.

Phillip D. Long Beach, CA - 2/5/2013

After the experience I had with everyone one including my first meeting with the CEO Harout I would like to share how satisfied i am with their hard work, professionalism, and dedication. Harout took his time to meet with me and explain to me the process of the short sale of my property. I felt relieved and confident that his staff will assist me in selling my property. Maral was outstanding. The moment I met her she got the ball rolling and every week updated me with the status of the sale. She answered all my questions and was always professional and nice. At first I was a little skeptical if someone would even buy my property, but after they put it up for sale I got so many offers.

I highly recommend this company if you need help like me. Thanks again Maral for your hard work and dedication!

These guys were great and pulled thru for me, out of an awkward situation. They are great communicators and negotiators.

Pierre B - Long Beach, CA -10/2/2012

Henrik Shaknazaryan was absolutely fantastic. He managed everything to our full satisfaction. He has excellent experience and was totally professional throughout the process. We relocated from California a couple years ago and Henry handled the short sale of our former house in California. Henry knew the processes with the lenders very well. The house was listed for sale and sold within 3 months!! We even got money back from the deal; Henry clearly knows all about short sale. We definitely recommend the J Hart team (we also worked with Harout and Aggie who were great as well) for anybody that has troubles with selling a house that is under water.
Julie G. - Boulder, CO - 11/25/2012

This is my first Yelp review...and the first time that I've felt compelled to give one.

I was behind about 1 year on my mortgage and in mid September I received a letter from John Hart saying that my property had a foreclosure data of 10/18/2018. I had resigned myself to letting my property go into foreclosure, but now with the actual date looming, I decided I'd see if I could get approved for a short sale instead. They led me through every step of the process...there was quite a bit of paperwork to complete in the first week or so but it turned out to be well worth it....they got the foreclosure date postponed and then they closed the short sale on Nov. 2, only 6 weeks after I'd received their letter! One thing that may have sped the process was the fact that I had a renter in my property who ended up buying it, but even without that I'm confident they would have had my place sold in early November. I highly, highly recommend them if you think your only alternative is foreclosure.
