Our Story

With a track record of success under his belt as a loan officer and consultant, Dennis Chernov first entered real estate as an agent with Keller Williams Studio City when the recession hit in 2008. He had just gotten married to his high school sweetheart, Yana, and they had already purchased their first home together in Studio City. They met in the valley, they lived in the valley, and they knew that they would eventually raise their children in the valley ─ this was their home, and they were determined to work through this housing crisis together.

Shortly thereafter, Dennis excelled as a top agent in Studio City and, after having two beautiful baby boys, Yana made the jump into marketing and operationalizing Dennis’s real estate listings and processes. At that point it was clear, Yana and Dennis not only loved their hometown, but were fiercely passionate about proliferating the growth and success of their neighbors and community through the real estate market.

Building a highly skilled team of hand-selected agents, marketers, and industry specialists, together they have grown Chernov Team to be the highest ranking and top performing real estate group in the valley. Grossing over $800 Million in sales since 2016 alone, Chernov Team has become a premier full- service boutique real estate group, lazer focused on performance and committed to driving exceptional results for all of our clients.

I listed my beautiful house with another broker for 5 months and got no results! Disappointed with the outcome, I began interviewing several known local brokers.

For over a year I was confused about what to do with my mother's home--rent it or sell it--fix it up or leave it as it is. After talking with Dennis and Kevin Silver, we decided to try their risk-free suggestion for 3 weeks. And guess what, it worked! Her house was sold without any open houses, fixing up, staging or hassle! And ...
