Jess & Dave

We were referred to Phil and Ariana when we set out to buy our first home in October 2021, not the best moment to buy your first house in Los Angeles. When I met Phil, he was so calm and confident that it would work out, I wasn’t so sure. He told us success stories about his clients that waited to find the right house and now they celebrated together. I was skeptical we would ever make his roster of happy clients. The housing market was competitive, houses were selling in 24 hours, and we had everything to learn. I was worried we would have to compromise on neighborhood or settle for a home that wasn’t right for us. I was worried Phil and Ariana would feel they were wasting their time with us and pressure us to settle. But they never made us feel like that. Many months and many offers later, on a Tuesday, Phil called and said something along the lines of “come look at this house right now.” He’d never done that before and I was confused because this house was the dream house in my dream neighborhood and it felt way out of reach. I actually said I didn’t want to go (in an attempt to save myself the inevitable heartbreak). Well, he worked around my reluctance and made it happen anyway…and like magic, they accepted our offer. In what world does your realtor tell you to dream bigger while you’re telling them to be more realistic? In hindsight, I can’t believe they never pressured us to settle, to get it done faster. I can’t believe they never gave up on us or told us to lower our standards. Quite the opposite. When I look back, it’s impossible not to admit how much easier the process would have been if I just trusted them, they know what they’re doing. The sweetest part of who Phil and Ariana are - is how genuinely happy for us they were. I couldn’t be more grateful they worked with us. It would not have happened without them. Thank you both so much.

"Ariana & Phil came highly recommended to us last year when my grandma was selling her home that she lived in for 38 years. We knew it would be an emotional process and we couldn’t have picked better realtors for the Journey. Seriously, we are so grateful! Ariana & Phil are both warm, welcoming, down to earth, family oriented people who are ALSO incredibly professional, thorough, efficient & skilled realtors. They are confident in what they bring to the table, without being pushy in any way (unlike other realtors we interviewed before them) These two are truly the combo of good vibes + good business, which is a priceless pairing in any industry, let alone real estate! Ariana is the sweetest and she made my grandma feel so seen, heard & encouraged throughout the process. My grandma still talks about how wonderful she is! Phil is a great communicator and negotiator. My grandmas house closed wayyyyy over asking and every stipulation she was asking for, she received… and then some. We felt very safe with his grounded presence & practical resourcefulness throughout the process. We couldn’t have asked for better realtors and I would highly, highly recommend Phil & Ariana Berson to anyone who wants to experience a world class real estate experience!"

"Ariana and Phil are amazing! I doubt I'm the easiest customer, had many questions and they were awesome every step of the way. Very patient and prescriptive with everything at all hours. At the end of the day, they helped me find my dream home in this crazy market, I would recommend them 10/10 times!"

"What can I say about this team except that I cannot imagine the experience of selling a home being any better than this! Phil and Ariana collaborated with Marc to present our home in Encino to the public and within less than a week they delivered multiple offers, one of which was in cash and far over our asking price. They held our hand every step of the way, reassuring us as first-time home sellers that we could lean on them to explain and deliver sage advice. In such an anxiety-inducing experience, these are the people you want on your side. I would recommend them to family, friends, and anyone I care about because this team makes you feel that they care deeply about their customers and their family. Consider them to be the best because I certainly do!"

Joseph L.

I would definitely do business with them again and highly recommend them for any real estate need that someone might have.

Sharon V.

They are professional, communicative, responsive and sensitive to their clients - and would recommend this fantastic team.

Melissa H.

Working with them was great! If you are looking for smart, kind, hardworking agents who think outside the box, give them a call. You won’t regret it.

We relocated from Massachusetts to LA a year and half ago. When we knew we were moving here I made one trip out here to find a place to live. Time was tight. Was not familiar with the area at all and had to act fast. Thank God we connected with Phil and Ariana. They took an incredibly stressful situation and turned it into a good experience. There were a number of moving parts associated with our move, but when you hire the right team that goes above and beyond their professional duties and takes on the role of friend you know everything is going to work out. The true testament of the Berson Group though is that not even 6 months after landing in CA we found ourselves ready to move again, and we had to enlist Phil and Ariana to market and sell the house they just helped us purchase. Yet again, they immediately jumped in and helped us to sell the home in record time. We purchase and sell real estate on both the East and West Coast, and The Berson Group is definitely a key member of our team. Contact them for their professional experience if you are looking to buy, sell, or lease, but then be prepared to welcome them in as friends, because that is what you are going to get.

My husband and I cannot thank The Berson Group enough for the tremendous job they did finding us our dream home. Even during a global pandemic, Phil and Ari provided continuous, top-quality dedication to us we transitioned from Washington State to California during a major health crisis. Turning our dream of owning a home into a reality a top priority to them. As first-time buyers, we were a little nervous when it came to the home purchasing process but Phil and Ari were there for us every single step of the way. Their professionalism and expertise, along with their genuine passion for what they do, really do make the Berson’s the “dream team.” We will always be grateful for the kindness and care they shared with us during such an important time in our lives. I could not recommend two greater people to help you with your home buying journey. They are truly remarkable!

Sharon V.

Phil and Ariana are indeed a special, stand-out team who managed the sale of my late brother's condo with professionalism, detailed care and sensitivity to my family and I as we dealt with our loss. By using the fantastic high-tech tools Compass provides, they found us an all-cash buyer after only 3 days on the market. We had a very smooth close and the Bersons guided us beautifully along the way. I highly recommend this team to anyone seeking to list or buy a home. Thank you Bersons!

Joseph L.

My experience with Phil and Ariana was second to none in both selling my former home and buying my new one. Having been part of a dozen or so real estate transactions previously, I've yet to receive this level of attention and care. Either Phil and/or Ariana would always my call, text, email, etc. Being as inquisitive as I am, that's no small feat. I would definitely do business with them again and highly recommend them for any real estate need that someone might have.

Travis A.

Phil Berson is an honest and effective agent. He represented my family very professionally and helped us achieve our desired results. I will recommend Phil to others with confidence. Phil understands that it's not just about a real estate transaction. He goes above and beyond to help you through the entire process of home buying. He is even up front if he does not know something and helps you find the answer. He has relationships with various home vendors, which I liked.

Buyer & Seller

As first time buyers, we were really nervous about the home buying process and all the documents that would be required. However, working with The Berson Group made the home buying process stress free! Phil and Ariana were extremely knowledgeable, responded to my calls immediately, and always were able to explain what each document was and why it was needed. We really enjoyed working with The Berson Group and would definitely recommend them to our friends.

Melissa H.

Working with Ariana and Phil was great! My husband and I thought buying and selling during a pandemic was going to be impossible, but they thought of all the creative ways to sell our home while keeping my family and I safe. Their relationships helped us get our dream home (under asking!) and we couldn’t be happier with the purchase. If you are looking for smart, kind, hardworking agents who think outside the box, give them a call. You won’t regret it.

David M.

Phil and Ariana are really a tremendous team. They helped me to sell my mother's house after her passing. It was a difficult time for the family, so having the two of them as our real estate agents was an absolute blessing -- I couldn't ask for a more kind, attentive and helpful pair of individuals to work with. Moreover, they're also very good at their jobs, helping us sell the property well above asking price. I would recommend them without any reservations.

Sharon V.

Phil and Ariana made an excellent experience out of a sad time for my family and I as we put my brother's condo up for sale after his recent passing. With their skills and know-how, they found us an all-cash buyer in 3 days on the market! The Bersons are professional, communicative, responsive and sensitive to their clients and would recommend this fantastic team to anyone seeking to list their home or buy another.

Jose G.

Before finding Ariana, I was dealing with the most incompetent realtor. In desperate need for a new agent, I contacted Ariana upon recommendation of a friend. Almost immediately she setup tours and sent me an extensive list of properties that were all within my criteria. My experience with her was great. Will definitely be using her again for future inquiries.

Joseph L.

In my dealings with Phil & Ariana Berson, I found them to be EXTREMELY professional, super responsive and extremely patient. In a real estate market so saturated with uninformed realtors, I find them to be extremely knowledgeable in their overall knowledge and keen marketing approach for listings. Would be happy to recommend The Berson Group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Amy S.

He's wonderful. he thought of ways to help us negotiate our potential to rent a competitive property, and then got us a very fair deal. He's available when needed for questions. He followed through with the owner of our property in order to answer any questions we posed that had no immediate answer. Never patronizing, always clear. Highly recommend.

Karen M.

Selling a house is a daunting task, but working with Phil and Ariana made things so much more bearable! These folks are kind, efficient, professional, attentive, and many other things that made working with them a pleasure. Thanks for your compassion, and for getting us a great deal with our house sale!


Phil has a beautiful dedication to providing the highest level of service and support for his clients. We had a long running, difficult transaction and Phil was present and available at every twist and turn of the process with a calm demeanor and sage advice. Highly recommend his services.

Jennifer T.

Wonderful people to work with. I was having some medical issues during the time they were showing my place, as well as other things going on and they were so very compassionate about working around my schedule. The nicest people you'd ever want to meet and very professional.


Philip handled the Escrow process with patience, expertise, and skill. He was available to guide us through the process, explain paper work, negotiate, and manage with style and grace. I highly recommend him for your property purchase or listing. He is trustworthy and a person of integrity.

Matthew S.

Ariana was an absolute pleasure to work with and helped us every step of the way. Had a less than pleasant experience with an agent before coming to Ariana, and I'm so glad that we found her. Professional, friendly and quick with replies to questions we had.

Buyer & Seller

By far the best! Thank you Philip for all you've done for us. Philip your professionalism and compassion during our house hunting was down to earth. You made the process less hectic for us during a difficult time. The overall experience was a breeze. Thank you!

Ira R.

Phil was wonderful to work with! He was very honest and upfront throughout the entire process and was a great ally in helping us find our apartment. We would recommend The Berson Group to everyone!

They were outstanding. They made everything super easy, you couldn't ask for friendlier people. And we ended up in a place that we couldn't love more.


It was our real pleasure working with them both. Very professional and trustworthy.
