Why do your clients consider you their trusted advisor?

Mario Karame, proprietor, Chicken Maison: “We have been expanding Chicken Maison and our newest concept, Top Tenders, in the South Bay, Los Angeles and Orange County. Deborah and Gulshen have been instrumental in identifying key locations for our family of restaurants. They are always available, do the groundwork and research, and tirelessly work to foster our expansion. They understand the market, but more importantly they understand exactly what our needs are to ensure our continued success.”

David Kuo, chef/owner, Little Fatty: “We have been working with Deborah and Gulshen to secure a second location for our restaurant, and they know exactly what we are looking for. They consistently put in the work, show up on time and pick up the phone. I have worked with some of the biggest real estate brokers in L.A. whose service does not compare to what RPM has done for us.”


What do you offer clients?

“We pride ourselves in serving every client with integrity and professionalism. Our business standards are honesty, respect and accountability. It is our responsibility and company mission to approach each transaction from the client’s perspective. Every client becomes part of our team, and we approach each objective and goal from a team perspective. The measure of our success is always our clients’ satisfaction.”


What is your #1 piece of advice during this unprecedented time?

“Remember to check in. We never hesitate to roll up our sleeves and be of service wherever or however we can—whether business or personal. We never forget that clients are our center of influence, and putting their needs before our own has become second nature to us.

During the pandemic we gave a shout-out to our restaurant clients by running ads and posting on social media to let locals know the restaurant was still open for business. We also helped manage all the moratoriums regarding events and evictions for all the properties we manage. This experience has taught us that we are all part of the same team, here to support each other so we all become stronger.”
