Barry is the most attentive, hard working and probably the best negotiator I have ever met.

Buying and then selling our home was one of the biggest investments we were ever going to make and when we placed our trust in Barry … at the end he delivered on both counts We would highly recommend him.

Great team to work with. Very knowledgeable and helpful on both the buying and the selling process. They helped us in all aspects of selling our home from staging to making sure that we picked the most qualified buyer in the process.

Barry and Betty are the people you want to have on your side when buying or selling your house in La Jolla. Their knowledge of the La Jolla market is second to none. Barry has a great knack of first narrowing down to your wants/needs/desires and then going to work for you. He is best negotiator we have come across and I would rather have him by my side then opposite of us :-). Betty compliments Barry with being an immaculate planner of the team, we were always informed at every step of the way on the process from offer, escrow to closing. She was always on top on all aspects from inspection to following up with the bank. We would without hesitation recommend the Tash team to anyone looking to buy or sell in La Jolla.

Barry and Betty helped me purchase a beautiful home in La Jolla. They are incredibly knowledgeable and creative. I would never be able to get the house without their help. I was so lucky to have them represent me.

 I can not say enough regarding the wonderful job Barry and Betty provided in helping me and my wife purchase our home. We flew into San Diego with less than one week to find an area to live in, and narrow down on the home of our dreams. We discussed our needs prior to our arrival, and found that Barry clearly understood what we were looking for. For the first three days, Barry showed us a smattering of homes in the four areas he thought would best meet our needs. Once we located the neighborhood we were most interested in, Barry showed us a range of houses that both fit within our budget but also met our needs as a growing family. The genius of this broker is that he genuinely understood every aspect of the houses we looked at. Not only could he tell us about the scripted details of each home, but he explained every detail of how the house fit (or didn’t fit) into our expectations. He explained every history of every neighborhood we saw. Barry had a strong grasp of everything from the soil the house was built on to the expectations for neighborhood growth over the following ten years. He backed up his explanations with solid data, and gave us his honest opinions about the houses we were interested in. Once we found a couple of houses we liked, Barry really went to work. His goal was to get up the best possible price on the unit, and he did this with ferocious tenacity. Although he maintained the highest level of integrity throughout his dealings, he also knew when to push and when to sit back so that the negotiations always went in our favor. Again, he would explain his approach and thinking with every aspect of the deal. As soon as the house went into ESCROW, Betty’s dedication became key in finalizing the purchase process. She was active in helping us achieve financing, and always worked to make sure things moved forward seamlessly and efficiently. It was not uncommon for Betty to contact us in the middle of the night (San Diego time), to make sure that documents that time sensitive documents were signed during our business hours in Japan. In the end, we bought a beautiful house at the best possible price. We were able to found the home we desired, and have an accepted offer in less than one week. We were able to close escrow in 45 days living overseas and requiring a sizable jumbo loan. I honestly believe that no other real estate agent in the area would have been able to assist us with this as Barry and Betty did. I recommend them without reservation for any home purchase.

In 50 years of purchasing real estate world-wide I have only found a few brokers who really “knew their client”. Barry takes on an assignment and never looses track of it until it has met the requisites of the client. He is relentless in pursuing and following up with details. A customer who really wants to make a purchase or is looking for “a Deal” needs to contact Barry. It has been my pleasure in working with him.

Barry Tashakorian was very helpful helping me buy my home. He worked very hard helping me get the best rate possible and accommodating my needs. I was very satisfied with his service and I strongly recommend Barry Tashakorian for anyone seeking a good honest and professional realtor.

He’s simply the best at what he does – negotiation! He was able to find important defects in the house we were in the process of purchasing which the inspector had missed. This led to a big sum of money being credited to us to fix those defects. Barry more than made up for his commission in this transaction.

As Barry’s preferred Title Insurance partner, I have the opportunity to work with him on many transactions throughout the year. He is a relentless hard worker, who is a master at negotiating. He always has his clients best interest in mind, and won’t stop until they get a fair price for either a purchase or a sale of their home.

Barry has a good understanding of the La Jolla market in particular, but other parts of San Diego as well. He’s got his ear to the street and can find good properties both to list and sell that most other agents would never discover.

He always strives for excellence, and that’s why I would recommend you speak to Barry about Buying or Selling real estate this year.
