Unleash your purchasing power.
Scenario 1:
Go-It-Alone (Without A Buyer’s Agent)
Scenario 2:
Hire A Local
Buyer’s Agent
Scenario 3:
Chernov Team Buyer’s Agent
Property Search Property Search
Research, calculate, & identify the right potential properties without any professional guidance or support.
An agent potentially more interested in closing a sale than helping you buy the RIGHT property on your terms.
A curated shopping experience with recommendations specifically tailored to meet or excess your expectations.
Time Commitment Time Commitment
Spend hundreds of hours online─searching for potential properties.
Receive tons of listings that marginally meet your needs─reiterate what you’re looking for repeatedly.
Minimize the house-hunting & only invest your attention in properties that actually meet your prerequisites.
Industry Experience Industry Experience
Rely only on your own knowledge of the market & invest significant time in gathering information from all over.
Work with an agent who has dependable knowledge but unremarkable experience in the local market.
Utilize the most talented realtors in the valley─with countless awards, thousands of transactions, & decades of experience.
Local Relationships Local Relationships
Navigate the competitive LA market, with numerous buyers competing for the same property─figure out how to make your offer stand out on your own.
Work with an agent who has relationships in the market but lacks the extensive network & relationships necessary to get your offer to the top of the stack.
Always get your offer in on-time, in front of sellers & up for negotiation─as top-performers, our reach & network is vast & unparalleled in the local market.
Negotiation Power Negotiation Power
Work directly with the Selling Agent & trust that you’re not being taken advantage of throughout negotiations & closing.
Depend on an agent who lacks a first-rate track-record of success, risk losing out on the property you want & settling for a less-than-best purchasing agreement.
Harness Chernov Team’s influence to get your offer accepted & reach an optimal purchase agreement─we’ll fight to protect your interests.
Concierge Service Concierge Service
Find your own lender, use the seller’s escrow company & be under-represented with little transparency into the transaction processing of your property.
Work with an agent who has a limited network. Fight for attention & plan on constant follow-ups, lag-time responses, & built-in agency transaction services.
Unlimited access to leading professionals─from financing to close, we'll connect you with our trusted partners. Get real-time updates from an always-responsive team.
Strategic Closing Strategic Closing
Commit to being self-educated in the most strategic part of the home-buying process.
Work with an agent who understands contingencies & knows when they should be removed.
Benefit from a strategic plan for the removal of contingencies─secure your leverage, mitigate risk, & ease your mind through the entirety of the closing process.

    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.
