Working with Armand was so easy: he took the time to know us, to understand our needs and helped us each step of the way to find our new home. He was looking out for us, making sure we would not buy something that would turn out to be a liability later on. He was always there to check details, pointing out issues that we would have missed. Armand was always honest, respectful and patient. He was always present when we needed him, in person, on the phone, and via e-mails. He was there to find solutions to problems that would have stopped us from buying our house. Armand was able to deal with a seller that was difficult to work with and successfully managed to finalize the deal for our new home.

I was looking for a commercial lease broker and worked with multiple ones before I met Armand.
Armand was professional, knowledgable and always in high spirits.
Armand was fully committed to finding a space that matched our requirements and went above and beyond to make sure every detail of the deal is handled to perfection.
Finding an office in the hottest real estate market is a huge pain, but Armand made it seem like a breeze. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with him on your next real estate deal.
As a startup growing and looking for its first office to move into, it was imperative we found something the whole team liked. When we found Armand, he was very friendly and trustworthy with everything. He made sure to let us know of anything we should be aware of, even if it wasn’t necessarily on the ad. He was very patient with us taking time to look through the office, and even offered walk throughs with any team member when they wanted to visit. Having someone available like that and dependable helped us close the office we loved very quickly and efficiently.
After a few weeks of working, Armand even called to check up to see how everything was going, and brought in a free catered lunch for our whole startup team. He definitely looked out for our best interest and established a solid relationship with us for future business opportunities.

We recommend Armand highly.
My husband and I spent a year searching for our ‘perfect family home” on the peninsula. We finally found it and have Armand to thank. Armand was dedicated to learning our likes and dislikes. He honed his searches based on what he learned. In the end, he is the one who found our house, knowing what we each loved. He aggressively negotiated to be sure we were in the best position to get it in this crazy, multiple offer market.
Armand is also ethical and holds himself to a standard which benefits his clients. He diligently reviewed disclosures and warned us of red flags in a couple homes we were considering. This commitment to our best interests won us over.
We can’t recommend him more highly.

Armand is awesome. Trustworthy, smart and creative, and just a good guy. I was selling my two bedroom two bath and had to do so before MAJOR construction began in the lot right in front of my unit, while buying a new place within a 90 day window that also had multiple offers. Armand knows how to work a deal, he is strategic and honest. He also is excellent at the details and tactics. I sense that he has the respect of the other brokers in the area, most certainly the broker I was dealing with. You won’t go wrong with him.

I met Armand at an open house, and felt instantly comfortable with him and signed him up to be my broker. It turned out to be a wise decision. I was searching for a condo in one of the tightest real estate markets in San Francisco’s history. Armand kept my spirits up in a market where there was very little inventory. I am quite picky in what I was looking for, which made the search doubly challenging. Armand never pressured me and made each day we went looking a pleasant experience. He also went the extra mile and worked some contacts to have me look at a couple condos that weren’t yet on the market, giving me more options. Actually, in desperation, I almost settled for two properties that weren’t quite up to the quality I was looking for. Thankfully Armand advised me to walk away. I saw that as a sign of integrity because he could have just done the deal and got his commission. But Armand does not want his clients to do just any deal, he wants you to do the right deal. We finally found the perfect property. I bought a brand new property at a very reasonable price. I give Leap SF five stars because of Armand’s knowledge, integrity, and professionalism.

My husband and I were selling our farm in the Central Valley and attempting a 1031 property exchange in the Bay Area. Armand Der-Harcobian was recommended to us and we were privileged to work with him. The exchange would not have succeeded without Armand’s knowledge, expertise, attention to detail, and diligent persistence. We had 45 days to locate property that would close within 180 days. Thanks to Armand, we located a beautiful condominium and signed escrow papers in 32 days! He kept all the agents and mortgage companies working together to make it happen, and was often sending us emails late into the evening.
Armand’s personality is the icing on the cake! He is warm and kind and especially reassuring during stressful times. We have referred him to several friends and hope to work with him again. Armand completely changed our view of Bay Area realtors and we wholeheartedly recommend him!
Thank you Armand!

This is the second time dealing with Armand, and somehow he always seems been spot on. With other brokers there always seems like there is a reason why things CAN NOT get done….
enough said this guy is credible and accurate at all levels, and finds a way to get the deal done where others have failed… Big bonus a big smile and always a kind word…thanks Armand.

I cannot begin to speak highly enough of Armand, and his genuine desire to share his experience and knowledge in the real estate market. Armand provided me exactly what I needed to contribute to a smooth and painless refinance process. Having a trusted, respected, knowledgeable, and experienced professional in your corner is invaluable, but having these qualities plus a person who naturally emits a genuine desire to see those he serves prosper is immeasurable.

Armand Der-Hacobian works diligently to get results. He is very knowledgeable with many contacts in the real estate business. We are very pleased with his work. He kept us informed of progress on contacts he made giving us a weekly report. He is honest, hard working and very personable. I highly recommend him and look forward to working again with him in the future.
