About Elvin Apelian

In today’s dog-eat-dog Real Estate environment you’d expect one of the top ranked Realtors in Los Angeles County to be a cold-hearted, calculating, selfish individual out to serve no one other than herself. As a general rule, that’s often a pretty accurate description. But to every rule there is an exception, and the resounding exception here is Elvin Apelian.

Elvin epitomizes uncompromising integrity, heartfelt honesty, an encyclopedic knowledge of Real Estate, dedication to her clients, and an uncanny talent for savvy negotiations that consistently benefits her clients. “I love watching their (the clients) faces when they discover they’re receiving more for their home than they expected”, Elvin said excitedly.

A resident of Burbank since 2006, Elvin has made it her responsibility to learn everything there is to know about the Burbank community and its adjacent neighbors. Again, one more reason Elvin Apelian is a Real Estate superstar. She received her bachelor’s degree in Accounting from California State University of Northridge in 2001. Elvin knew a solid understanding of finances and the financial world would be extremely beneficial as a Realtor. Now, well over a decade later, Elvin has created an outstanding reputation for herself as a tenacious protector of her clients’ interests, and in doing so built a Real Estate career where accolades and testimonials abound. Elvin smiled, saying, “Of course I enjoy praise, but nothing is as satisfying as watching your clients turn the key in the front door of the home they never really believed they‘d own.” “Sure! I’ve worked every aspect of Real Estate, from representing sellers, to buyers, to residential investors throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. If it deals with residential Real Estate, I’ve done it.”

Elvin’s Real Estate acumen is above reproach, but there’s much more to Elvin than her highly skilled abilities. She is a caring, considerate, sincerely genuine person with an ever-present charming personality and eyes that sparkle whenever she talks about her children.

Obviously Elvin is exceptionally well respected in the industry, not only for her unparalleled professional track record and high ethical standards, but also for being an honest, hard working Realtor who does absolutely everything in her power to ensure her clients successful transactions. Known for her foresight, which allows her to proactively address transaction details before they become a problem, Elvin is always one step ahead of the pitfalls that so often debilitate most Realtors. She is unquestionably a very special Realtor. But Elvin is much more than just a Realtor. She’s dedicated her life to helping people. Elvin unselfishly donates in-and-around 10% of her own hard earned commissions to the non-profit or charity of her client's choice, or often to a family in need.

Elvin, were you born to be a Realtor? “No, I don’t think I was born to be a Realtor. But I do believe it’s my obligation as a person to help as many people as I can. And I know I can help a lot of people as long as I work hard to be the best Realtor I can be.“

Because of this agent's strong knowledge of the local market, professionalism, and meticulous attention to detail, I would strongly recommend her services. I have worked with many real estate agents overthe years, and have full confidence in Ms. Apellian's abilities. I consider this agent to be among the very finest in the field, and have recently recommended her to a colleague, as well
We were so fortunate to have found Elvin. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. She was there every step of the way. She always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. She was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. We would recommend her to anyone.
My wife and I needed to remain in the vacinity of Burbank to maintain continuity of care to support her medical condition. Using my wife's Vetran Affair's benefit we discovered the process is more complicated than a standard loan. Elvin expertly guided us through the process connecting the selling agent, the lenders and the escrow company. Without her connections and professional relationships we never would have been accepted to be purchasers of our new home. We have used other realators in the past and always questoined their motivation. Elvin never left us feeling like just another deal or a pay check. She genuinely cared to help us find a new home and went out of her way to answer our questions and keep the process moving
As first time home buyers, we knew very little about purchasing a home. We did our research online and found very positive reviews about Elvin Apelian and decided to reach out to her for a conversation. Little did we know that she would take over an hour of her time to converse and connect on a human-level. Her knowledge, confidence, and expertise were evident and unlike any other agent we had met. From our initial conversation to closing the deal on our new home, Elvin was there every step of the way, she was always a text and a phone call away without hesitating to answer all of our questions. From mortgage financials, to home assessments and general home improvement. She was there for us and made the process extremely smooth and human. We didn’t feel like we were being pushed around to make certain adjustments we weren’t comfortable with, she listened and created strategies based off our requests.

The day we closed on our new home was one of the best moments of our lives and we couldn’t have done it without Elvin’s expertise and market knowledge. I would highly recommend her for all home purchases, first time homebuyers, multiple homeowners, everything!
As a first time homebuyer or a 10th time homebuyer, everyone can benefit from an honest, smart, and hardworking agent on their side. We have really found a friend for life and an agent for all of our future purchases to come!

Thank you for being so kind and thoughtful throughout the entire process!

All the best,

Stella & Marc

Elvin Apelian is absolutely terrific. She is the only realtor we will ever use. So resourceful and knowledgable! She knows the Los Angeles are like no other!
Elvin is a true professional and goes above and beyond to work in the best interest of her clients. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and took care of every detail. Buying (and Selling) a home is very stressful and Elvin made the whole experience very easy for me. She was always available for showings, super-fast responding to my many questions, and an excellent negotiator!! She was by my side from the first inquiry, finding the right place for a great price and guiding me thru the entire process thru escrow and closing. . I feel very fortunate to have found Elvin and when it comes time for me to buy or sell again I will be calling Elvin
Elvin is a great asset to John Hart, she is dedicated to helping her clients! Elvin guided us throughout the whole process from the time we started looking to the day we got our keys! Without her dedication we would have been lost. This is our first purchase and I guarantee this won't be our last with Elvin
