About Marlin Dginguerian

It’s safe to say that overachievement is Marlin Dginguerian’s default setting. Having been guiding clients through life-changing transactions since 2013, she’s racked up an impressive collection of accolades and achievements along the way: JohnHart’s 2022 Person of the Year, 3-time winning team member of JohnHart’s Annual Realtor Race, a designation as a Certified Residential Specialist, and countless Agent of the Week awards. But after selling over $500 million in real estate in her first decade as an agent, Marlin can still say that all of these accomplishments pale in comparison to the trust she earns from each and every one of her valued clients.

Marlin grew up in La Crescenta, where the current headquarters for her real estate enterprise is situated. After studying business in college, she got married and moved to the Glendale area. Upon bringing two beautiful daughters into the world, her family moved to La Cañada for the area’s coveted school district. Her path to top producing agent began at a different brokerage where she worked for a few months as a transaction coordinator. The role gave her enough information to recognize she could do so much more in the real estate industry. Having always exemplified a tireless work ethic and an affinity for multi-tasking, Marlin hit the ground running, building her business one call at a time.

She loves that, even with her impressive experience, she can still learn new techniques and strategies with each transaction. Working both hard and smart to elevate her clients to their goals, she’s yet to face a challenge that couldn’t be solved and surmounted. Yet, her determination never overshadows her friendly personability. Paired with her honesty and loyalty, Marlin has crafted an artful negotiation style with a proven track record of success.

Since working in real estate allows Marlin to function as the CEO of her own business, she is able to create a work-life balance that works for her family. In her free time, she cherishes every moment spent with her husband and daughters, catching up with friends, and working out.

Just a short review about these lovely ladies, they offered to stage, paint and do my garden when I am ready to sell my property. I am so amazed at how much they are willing to do to make my house presentable, that will save me a lot of money. Listing our house in 3 weeks with them.
Amy, Marlin and Karineh provided us a great listing appointment for our father's home. They were both very knowledgeable about real estate and had a team to back them up with their experiences. After many interviews, we decided to list our property with them as other realtors couldn't match what they were providing: staging, cleaning, estate team etc. We look forward to be working with you guys and getting the highest market value possible!
I recently purchased my second home with Amy and Marlin, and I couldn't be happier. We were able to close on another home for considerably less than the ask/market value. They have an experienced and knowledgeable team that is able to help buyers find and close on the right property on the best
Many thanks to Marlin, Amy, and Karine for the sale of our house in Tujunga. The team was wonderful to work with and provided exceptional service, going above and beyond for customer satisfaction. We had worked with other realtors in the past, however, none of them provided the high quality service that we received from Marlin and her team. Marlin got us multiple offers and escrow was closed within two weeks. It was a very smooth transaction. Marlin and her team lifted huge amount of stress off our shoulders. The team is extremely passionate, eager, and motivated to get the job done and in the right way. We cannot thank you enough for all your assistance. You are the definition of real estate professionalism. You were such a pleasure to work with and we definitely look forward to working with you again
Amy was excellent. She got us multiple offers and kept us informed every step of the way. She worked diligently to get the property sold at the best price. This property was a co-op and the HOA board and getting the necessary documentation was challenging. She constantly stayed on top of Escrow, the bank, and the HOA making sure the necessary documents were received in a timely manner. She even drove to the HOA president's house to pick up documents that were needed and hand delivered them to escrow! She was amazing and we plan on using her again. Thank you Amy for all of your hard work
I would like to give many thanks to Marlin and Amy for a successful sale of my Glendale Condo. They were genuinely helpful from start to finish. They did everything possible blended with quality and excellent service to complete a successful sale. Thank you again Marlin and Amy, you can make dreams come true!!!
Marlin & Amy have shown me several properties and continue to do so. I have had the best experience with them. I'm confident that they will find my dream home. I have recommended this to all my family and friends.
I? had the best experience with Amy and Marlin. They are so knowledgeable and professional. We are on the hunt to find our forever home and they have been super patient with us. They answer all our calls and are very attentive. A+++
I've had the pleasure of working with Amy and Marlene in the past. They are unstoppable, they are the people you want on your side be it buying a house or selling yours. Not with the addition of Karineh to their group, that have become the superheroes of the real estate market. Be aware the dynamic duo has a new superhero on their side and her name is Karineh. Thank you ladies for what you have done for me, for my family, and for the community
Working with Marlin & Amy has always been a fantastic experience. Every time my buyers have any questions they are prompt, professional, and extremely understanding. They truly go out of their way to make sure the clients are well informed and comfortable.
Amy and Marlin are fantastic. As first time gome buyers they are making the process so easy. Their expertise with
La Canada is paramount to the success of our experience. They are extremely knowledgable about the neighborhood, the market, trends and the quality of architectural details. They are highly communicative and available. We would recommend them to anyone
Any and Marlin are by far so attentive and so understanding. They are continuously helping my family and I look for a new home and to get our home ready to sell. I would recommend them in a heart beat. Greatest decision we’ve ever had to make!!
I have worked with Marlin and Amy in 2015 when they sold my childhood home in La Canada. They were simply amazing and very patient and knowledgeable with the market. I am now having them represent me in my next purchase in Glendale. I simply love everything about them as their professionalism. A +
Marlin and Amy were so patient with me when I asked them to find my dad a new house they showed me over 20 different places until we found the perfect one. They have been a blessing to me and my family. Thanks ladies.
I asked Marlin to come give me an evaluation on my home in Glendale. I was so impressed with her knowledge of the city that I have started getting my house ready to list with her and Amy. I am so confident that they will sell my home for top dollar!
Amy and Marlin have been helping me for almost 2 years. Very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend these ladies to sell your home, they usually get over asking. Can’t wait for them to list my next house.
Amy and her partner Marlin -- are the absolute best agents that I have ever met. I had a few agents on my list up front when I started research, and some of them had longer experience in real estate. But Amy has proved that the number of years one has worked in an industry is only a number figure and nothing more. She is there for you 24/7, communicating with you and also the other party, Escrow, etc. She works for your absolute best interest. Rest assured that she will be running around to achieve the deals you wanted. Very satisfied with my experience, and I strongly recommend Amy and her partner Marlin for any real estate projects you might have. I could not have asked for more, and I really mean it
Very smart and Carring. They have made things very painless and quick at every turn. I would recommend them 100%. They truly care about the client. I am all about good service and love giving good reviews to people that truly deserve it. I have been happy every time with every transaction. I am a developer that knows quality and quality is what you get with this team
They helped me find my dream Condo. I would highly recommend working with them for buying and selling. Its took almost a Month to find my home and after a tough negotiation they were able to get it for me the way I wanted.
I was lucky enough to meet Marlin and Amy a few months ago and they have been so helpful to menin finding me my dream hone. They always call me babk and send me new listings twice a month. They are my realtirs and always will be!

This was my second time working with Marlin Dginguerian, Amy Dginguerian and Karineh Amirganian. The second time around was even more important as the purchase was in an area I had little knowledge about. This is where Karineh came to our aid being a native of Santa Clarita. She was absolutely wonderful to work with and she never forgot about the most important basic fundamental of customer service- communication! We found our dream home and the process was as smooth as silk. From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank them enough
My wife and I worked with Amy and Marlin and really can’t say enough good things about them. They are knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with their time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends). They answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Amy and Marlin made it as painless and straightforward as possible. We highly recommend them
Amy worked with us in purchasing our dream home in Burbank. I witnessed first-hand how much she cares about what she is doing and how passionate she is about making sure her clients both buying and selling are getting what they want. A prime example is when she negotiated credit terms based on the property inspection. The inspection document was lengthy and she was able to decode the lingo and quickly identify items that were important. On top of that, she was able to get estimates on those items in a blink of an eye. It was an incredible feat as she was able to negotiate credit terms that meet our needs and satisfy the seller at the same time! My wife and I are also impressed on how fast she responded to any of our questions
I contacted Amy & Marlin when my husband and I were looking into purchasing our first home. Not only are they diligent in what they do, but as a team Amy, Marlin and Karineh worked hard into getting our offer accepted by the seller. Thank you to this amazing team that sincerely do their best for every single client and in making them fit their new lives into heir new home. We highly recommend this prodigious team to anyone who's looking to buy or sell.
I have worked with Amy, Marlin, and Karineh on various transactions, and without exception, their conduct has always been exemplary. They are a professional team with a deep knowledge of real estate market in Southern California. I recommend them highly to any individual who is looking to rent, purchase, or sell real estate in this very competitive market
I've been considering a possible relocation to L.A. and have sought the advice of Amy Dginguerian, and she's given me a lot of great information about the real estate market, which is helping me to make my decision. She was responsive, smart, and very helpful.
I came down from Arizona to look for some properties in Glendale and was blown away with Marlin’s knowledge and the time she took to answer my questions and I mean she really went above and beyond with helping me. Her professionalism is definitely a 5 star and I’ll recommend her to all my friends and family.
Aside from being a professional who truly knows her stuff, Amy, has a heart of gold; putting her clients’ needs first. She is available and ready at all times of the day.
Thank you, Amy!
I had the pleasure to work with Marlin on an investment purchase. Marlin is diligent, experienced, and resourceful. She was able to address all obstacles zealously and promptly. Thank you Marlin and looking forward to the next transaction.
Just want to start off by saying I highly recommend Amy & Marlin. Here's why. Ive started looking into purchasing an investment property and seeking an agent. So ive attended some open houses just to see what is out there and a good way to find an agent is while they're in action. But all the agents I've come across are so dry and don't make you feel worthy of their time or callbacks.

But I recently meet Amy & Marlin at one of their open houses and I was so thrilled to finally meet warm sociable agents who are friendly and engaging. They are so informative and responsive to my calls and questions. Unlike most other agents who don't even bother to pick up or return a message or even text for heavens sake!

I will definitely be using them as my agents as soon as my husband comes back in town to meet them as well and sign in that dotted line!!! I look forward to see them in full action.
We had the pleasure of working with Karineh and she's amazing! She did everything for us from A-Z. She was extremely professional and very knowledgeable, not to mention always available to answer any questions that we had ! Great office and wonderful employees!
We were first time buyers in this transaction. We really needed help and guidance. Amy and Marlin were very patient as we had a fair set of requirements and yet not a huge budget. While we wrote a few offers for houses that we liked, the prices went way above asking and above our budget. Until we found the house we loved. Amy and Marlin went above and beyond to make sure our offer will win while we still got a great price for the property. And that was the first part of the process only. During escrow and loan application they were just a phone call away for any questions we had at every step of the process. Great service and great results! I can't think of anything else to expect from our agents. Will definitely use them again! Hopefully soon :)
Marlin and her colleagues really went above and beyond while selling our house in Glendale. It was quite the task considering the inconvenience of the stairs. It took long months and lots of weekends dedicated but she stuck to it and sold it top dollar. She did what none else could pull off. I highly recommend her and her team for house needs.
I met Marlin and Amy through mutual friends, and I cannot be happier. Ive been given a short deadline to move out of my place and Marlin has already sent me 10 locations that I cannot be happier with. It's so hard to find something affordable and convenient these days and one thing I didn't think would happen is to have more than enough options to choose from. Marlin gave me hope and she's also the coolest agent I've ever come across. Also, easy to trust. Would definitely reccomend to friends and family.
Another great deal selling my property.Marlin always comes through. She is a great realtor who knows the game. Every deal I trust her and her team . She gives best service with best offers.
Marlin and Amy represented me in the purchase of my Palm Springs house, I am so impressed with them even though they live 2 hours away they showed up to the inspection and appraisal and the walk through when we closed escrow. I am so happy that I have referred them to my family and friends. Thanks ladies, A+ in my book
We have used Amy and Marlin in a real estate transaction and we couldn't have been more satisfied with the process. They gave us excellent guidance. They were available to answer all our questions. We would not hesitate to work with them again.
I can't say enough about Marlin & Amy!They are the nicest, most hardworking and professionals I have worked with! I plan on working with them for many years to come! Keep up the great teamwork !
Marlin and Amy went above and beyond to help us find an investment house. They showed us around 6 different homes and we think we found the one. Thank you ladies for taking your weekends and showing us plenty of options.
Amy and Marlin both are very knowledgeable and got us top dollar for our investment house. They came and had open houses and spoke to every single person that walked in. They told me how much we would expect to get for our house and they got me what they promised. I would recommend them to anybody that is buying or selling a house
Amy and Marlin sold our duplex in Pasadena after 1 open house. We were very very happy with them as agents. They are true professionals and got us over asking. They have become our agents for life!
Amy and Marlin just helped us sell our investment property in Tujunga. They were very professional, patient and on top of every aspect of the escrow. We couldn't be any more happier with them as our agents. Thank you ladies for your outstanding professional service you provided to our family. Can't wait for you to sell our next house!
