As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"Absolutely would recommend Sam. He was super professional throughout every step. He set up a schedule that addressed every step of the sale of my home, and was on top of it, following up, and making the calls, escalating things when needed, and made things happen. He is flexible, works with you, and takes representing you as a seller very personal. He not only takes the time to get to know you, and what you want, but also talks to the Buyer's agent to get to know the buyer. This allows him to react and stay ahead of thing so there are no problems with your sale. The friendly relationship you form with him will leave you feeling you have a long-time friend that is that one person you can trust to always give you the best advice for who you are in the situation you are in. I would hire him again for sure. "

"Sam is a master communicator! He will never miss an email, text or phone call and always responded extremely fast, often within minutes! He is personable and professional and did exactly what he said he was going to do! We received 4 above ask offers because of his hard work to help sell our home! My husband and I highly recommend Sam!"
-Rachel Larson, Client
"Sam was a tremendous help to us throughout the entire process of searching for, bidding on, and closing on our home. He made every effort to be available to us when we needed to meet and was always just a call, text or email away when we had questions. We appreciated Sam's patience and understanding as we wrestled with decision-making. He made it clear he was there to support whatever decision we were going to make and never made us feel like we were burdening him with all the work it took to manage what ended up being two offers at the same time. He handled a tricky process smoothly and graciously. Sam is very organized and was especially invaluable in the process of closing on our house. He kept everyone on top of deadlines -- not only us but also the lender and the title company, making sure to follow up so that everyone was doing what we needed in order to close by the deadline. And even after closing, Sam is still doing a great job making recommendations for contractors to help us"

"It's hard to put into words the amount of appreciation I have for Sam Paltikian. He has helped my mother not only with the selling of her home, but has taken the time, care, patience and understanding that was needed to see this through. There are almost endless examples of Mr. Paltikian going above and beyond to ensure my mother was able to comprehend the ENTIRE process. At times I felt embarrassed that I didn't take into consideration all that was entailed not only with the sale of her home, but with her retirement and move to California. My amazing mother's strong dialect can be hard for most to interpret and grasp as well as her high energy, passion for detail and comprehension, are at times enough to test the hardiest of us :). Sam was ALWAYS there without hesitation. Not once did my mother remark on anything other than pride and assurance that she picked the right realtor."

He exceeded my expectations. "

"Sam made my Realty Dreams A Reality! He is professional, detailed orientated, follows up on every request I had, and quickly communicates with my required results.

He arrived early to every appointment, fully prepared, and took extra time to explain every issue in the home buying process. I highly recommend Sam as a competent Real Estate agent, as he makes the home buying process easy! He helped me find a house to call home. Ssgt Gifford, Karl-USAF"

His great personality combined with his hard work ethic is what makes him a great realtor. With every house visit, he was prepared with all the information pertaining to it. He was quick to respond to my questions and asked other agents questions for us. He is attentive and always paying attention to detail. We are so thankful to have worked with him. Erika H."

He recognizes the value of extraordinary customer service, a lost science, thank you Sam."

"I knew Sam personally prior to hiring him as a Real Estate Agent. He is a stand-up guy. Level-headed, calm, and willing to help out when and where he can. I am extremely satisfied with the work he did as my agent. My house had an offer within 2 days of listing and prior to any open house. We were first to market and luckily beat a lot of the market glut. I would highly recommend Sam Paltikian to anyone looking for a real estate agent."
-Eric S., Client
"Sam did a fantastic job in the process of our home purchase. He was accessible, knowledgeable, and supportive. He offered advice without telling us what to do. At one point it looked like we weren't going to get our house, but Sam saved the day with quick thinking and a new lender. We found Sam somewhat on accident through our original lender. We had no time to research or look at reviews. It turns out, I couldn't have found a better realtor myself!"
-Joyce Ortell, Client
"I am a colleague, client, and friend of Sam. I've been a mortgage broker for 18 years now, and I've met thousands of Realtors over that period. During my career, I've only met a handful of Realtors that really stand out above the rest, and Sam is one of them. Sam is patient, organized, tech-savvy, a good listener, and most importantly, a kind human being. I know it sounds simple enough, but it is rare to find an agent that isn't just chasing the dollar. Sam does what he does because of his "Why". Sam's "Why" is to assist home buyers and sellers create long-term wealth through investments in real estate. I trust Sam so much that I chose him to represent me on the purchase of my home. I wouldn't have it any other way. Congrats Sam on being one of the best in the State! I look forward to many more years of business and friendship together!"

"I met Mr. Sam Paltikian, Realtor-Associate, MRP RS-79996 a couple of years ago at an open house at Palm Villas Ewa Beach. I was really impressed with his extensive knowledge of the nature of the real estate business. I never forgot his professionalism and politeness when I asked him about the property he was selling. This year, less than a couple of months ago, my husband and I contacted Mr. Paltikian, because we knew we could trust him to help us to sell our property. Indeed, he sold our property very quickly. And we ended up with a nice profit. Our neighbor who was also in the process of selling his property with another agent was very impressed with what he saw Mr. Paltikian do with our property. He let go of his agent and hired Mr. Paltikian! In record time, his property was also sold very, very quickly. Mr. Paltikian paid close attention to the finite details in the process of selling that made selling the property very smooth, without error and wasted time. "
