We couldn’t have been any happier with IKEM and his professionalism throughout our relocation process to LA. Almost immediately, IKEM and his team provided us with leasing options based upon our requirements.

IKEM, thank you and your team for the amazing work!

Moving to LA can be quite intimidating but IKE really made our move easy and comforting. Our place was centrally located and combined the perfect amenities with a secured living environment which was perfect for our taste. IKEM was consistently available when issues arose and was very quick to come up with a solution. My husband I were very pleased with the attention we received from him.
— ANDREA & CHRIS DUHON
We were so lucky to have worked with IKEM on our home purchase. His involvement in fighting for us in our home purchase and creative solutions are the reasons we are home owners today. His service was beyond compare, even a more powerful statement knowing that we aren’t his typical market. His strong education, depth of knowledge, ad integrity are clear for the start.
