Reviews

Dave's excellent reputation is built on his clients' experiences. The following testimonials offer just a sampling of what they have to say about Dave and his services.


Dave was awesome, he showed us houses before we were ready to make an offer on one. Very helpful telling us about area, and making our purchase go so smoothly. Checked in with us afterwards to make sure everything was okay. Very professional service provided!

John & Ellen Krikie


Dave Birka was recommended to us by a co-worker and we couldn't have been happier with him as a real estate professional. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and needed some direction. We went into the process thinking we would be purchasing an existing home and ended up building our dream home. Dave has extensive knowledge about the market in Rochester and neighborhoods. He is helpful in every way and VERY patient. He guided us through the building process and answered any questions we had along the way. Overall we would recommend Dave Birka to any of our friends, family, or co-workers in the future. He is excellent at his job. We will find ourselves contacting him in the future if need be.

John & Alishia


David was great to work with. He was always available to us, responding to our texts, emails, and phone calls promptly. David also impressed us with his ability to answer our questions about the more technical aspects of selling a house for a deceased relative. We appreciated his friendliness and genuine interest in helping us through the home sale process, especially in light of losing a loved one.

The Dobbins Family


David Birka is extremely professional and very knowledgeable on real estate. He gave us the best service and we are very happy with our new home. He did a great job in educating us about the houses we have seen and provided valuable information.

Kiran & Sravani


David helped us buy our first house. He is a very good person and trustworthy and he worked above and beyond to help us find the right house. He showed many houses, and gave use his honest opinion. He was very patient with us. When we decided to sell our first house in 2016, and buy a new house, David also helped us look for a new house we couldn't trust anyone else. We thank him for his great service and we recommend him to anyone who need help buying or selling property as we've recommended him for many of our friends.

Saadi & Siham


Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation we have for Dave on helping us through one of our most stressful times in our lives. We first met Dave 11 years ago when he helped us buy our first home, so when time came for us to reach for our dreams of moving to the country we knew we want to go with Dave again. Dave is the most open and honest person we have met when it comes to home buying and selling. He is a great guide to answering your questions and if he doesn't know the answer, he finds it out for you in a very quick fashion. Dave was there at any time of the day or night when we have needed him, whether it was a question or a new house came on the market and we wanted to see it right away! He has the most patience's and the best encouragement while you are on your home buying hunt; especially when you think you are never going to find that right place. Trust us we spent almost 3 years with Dave searching for our dream home as we had certain things we wanted in a house and in a country setting! He never once tried to push us into anything and never acted irritated with our many meeting to see multiple homes at all hours of the evenings! Dave was always excellent at fully explaining things and offering advice. When it came to selling our house Dave was outstanding in helping us understand the process, making sure our house was perfect and working to get our home sold fast, which it did in 2 days with 4 offers!!! If you're looking for a great home buying or selling experience we highly recommend Dave Birka for the job.

The Schweim Family


Dave was very well versed in the skills of selling homes in Rochester. He was very prompt in answering any questions we had - when we called his cellphone he nearly always answered immediately. Because we had moved out of Rochester, he coordinated the cleaning of the house we were selling and repairs needed after the inspection.

Ray & Joyce Hartley


Dave Birka provided excellent realtor services for our family. He helped us by purchasing a new home quickly in a competitive market. His negotiation skills and advice in buying the new home were outstanding. He quickly responded to our questions and helped us negotiate swiftly so we were able to have a signed contract before other buyers could have a chance at the home. Dave also helped us sell our old home and with his guidance the process went very well. We captured a buyer the first day the house was on the market. His advice and help with preparing the home to show to buyers was extremely valuable. Also, he did an outstanding job at marketing the home which gave the home lots of professional visibility. We were very happy to work with Dave as our Realtor due to his hard work ethic, trustworthiness, and friendly personality. Dave is one of the best realtors in Rochester.

Kathryn


David just help us sell our rental property in 5 days. We first found David's contact information through Zillow. I am very happy I made the phone call to him. We also have experience with other agents. There is no comparison between David and the agents we have seen before. David is always honest with us. David tells me the things I will never heard from other agents. He will tell you his knowledge of housing, local regulations, housing inspection, etc. David gave us all the education we need.. We will use David as our agent when we are on the real estate market later.

Michelle


David had the divine pleasure of working with my husband and I. First of all, I must say he is a patient man! He sat us down, as he does with his new clients, and talk a little about himself, his experience, and how the whole process works. He put up with our million questions, random phone calls, and late night texts. He was always willing to drop what he was doing and show us the next house, which was definitely the dream house that we've been looking for! What we appreciated most about David, was that he wasn't in a rush. He made us see past the cosmetic things that we "had to have", and start seeing the house as a whole. I like to say that he was like are personal home inspector. This helped us make an informed decision. We worked with David for almost a year. He was there for us through thick and thin. We laughed as we walked through homes that were not like the pictures, and felt the heartbreak of losing a bid. With two moves and a wedding, which David attended, and new job and a new house, to all reading this, I highly recommend using David Birka as your Real Estate Professional.

The Gessert Family


David Birka truly excelled in finding us a townhome. Our search lasted nearly a year, but not because he wasn't making every effort. During that time he was attentive, always quick to respond. I valued his advice and was confident that he had our best interests at heart. In a housing market that was moving quickly, he kept us informed of new listings and was never too busy to schedule showings or follow up on a question. Our closing was smooth and hassle-free.

The Lommen Family


"Dave was awesome through the entire home buying process. Dave was so patient with us and truly wanted us to find the home that was right for us. It never felt like he was pushing us into making a decision or trying to disguise the flaws of a home like many people describe realtors doing. There was a time that we walked into a home and I was dead set on putting in an offer. During the walk through, Dave pointed out many things that were potential issues, that would cost us a lot of money. At the time I was so bummed because I liked the house but now I am so very thankful for his knowledge and honesty during that situation. Dave was always available to talk and he answered emails or texts promptly. It was reassuring to have him just a question away from the day we met him until closing, and actually almost two months after closing helped us figure out a garage door question! I am so pleased with our home and the buying process was simple thanks to Dave. I would highly recommend his services and when we are ready to sell our house, we will definitely be using Dave."

Emily & Karston


Called David quite a few times during the process. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner. David was able to negotiate a new refrigerator for us. After we bought the house he even called about how things were going. We did have an issue with the furnace. David came over that night to check this out, and got it going as that saved us from a service call!

Jeffrey and Candie Landro


After my father passed away and a family friend helped move my mother to a senior living facility in another state, I was faced with the challenge of clearing out and selling our family home in Rochester. This task was even more daunting, given the fact that my parents had lived in this house for nearly 40 years and accumulated a lot of personal effects, and I live 1,000 miles away.

Fortunately, I made the wise decision of selecting Dave Birka as our real estate agent. Dave was more than just an agent - he was a true friend. My wife and I flew to Rochester to spend a week clearing out the house. Dave went beyond the usual agent-client relationship to help out, even going so far as to loan us his pickup truck so that we could make multiple trips to donation centers and the city landfill with items that we were discarding.

When our time was up and we had to fly home, we were left with two large items in the house, a piano and an organ, which proved difficult to dispose of. Dave, once again, came to the rescue and managed to place ads and find buyers for both of these items for us. These were not easy tasks to complete, but Dave went the extra mile to help us out. He then arranged to have the garage cleaned out so that the house could be put on the market.

Dave listed the home and held an open house. The response was wonderful and we quickly had several offers. He helped us negotiate through one of the offers to a closing, obtaining the best selling price for my mother. He was efficient in handling the paperwork and we completed the sale around the time of my mother's birthday. Having this matter taken care of was a wonderful birthday present for Mom and a major relief for my wife and me.

Throughout the whole process, Dave Birka was a consummate professional. He is very ethical and truly knows the real estate business. I would highly recommend Dave and his services to anyone in the Rochester area who is contemplating buying or selling a house. You will be well-served by having Dave as your agent!

Dan V.


David took the time to get to know us and our needs. He was able to effectively educate and advise us on the nuances of the process. We are very pleased to have worked with David and would recommend him to any of our friends.

Joshua & Sharon


I am a first-time home buyer and absolutely have no knowledge about anything related to a house. David was referred to me by a friend after I had several so-so agents. David was very patient and knowledgeable about real estate market and houses. He was very reachable and ALWAYS responded to my emails quickly. He told me the good and the bad of the houses we visited. When we found the house, he guided me through the whole processes and took care of almost every step of negotiation and closing. In addition, I got advices on moving and even after I moved to the new house. I highly recommend David and would definitely hire him again in the future.

PS. I rarely write any review for anything. But I feel obligated to do so this time.

Mr. Wang


Our 3rd Seller & Buyer Transaction With Dave!

Dave was our seller and he helped us find the perfect home to move into. He was helpful and always had another house for us to look at. He was honest and made us feel comfortable. It was a great experience and we couldn't be happier in our new house.

Andrew & Noami Lovell


My fiance and I were first time home buyers. I had NO idea how the whole process worked! David was recommended to me by a few coworkers who had used him before and raved about him. He sat me down in the beginning and explained the process of buying a house and gave me information to refer back to. Dave worked with us for around 6 months and went through close to 50ish houses with us and through every house he acted as a mini inspector and pointed out things of issues/concern (which we needed because initially we loved a house based on cosmetic things - we couldn't see a house's bones). He really had our best interests at heart and was more concerned with finding us something we loved and what we wanted rather than selling a house as quick as possible! He went above and beyond for us! He supported and encouraged us through the heartbreaks and ups and downs. He was always willing to take a phone call, text, or e-mail no matter the time of day! In the end he help us find the perfect home and we couldn't be happier! We will be using him in the future FOR SURE!

Whitney Ashland


Dave Birka is a problem-solver as well as a hard worker. When we came to Rochester, Dave was recommended to us and we have always been grateful. He searched tirelessly for our first house here and navigated through various issues in the purchase. Five years later, when we decided to move to a different style of home, we unhesitatingly went back to Dave Birka. He guided us in making our house as appealing as possible, as well as again helping us search for our new home. Glitches came up, as they always do, but he worked to find positive solutions. Our first house sold promptly, and we are now in our "dream" home! Dave really cares about helping home sellers and home buyers achieve their goals.

Dale & Sandy Larsen


Dave was a very good real estate consultant for us. Very knowledgeable, well organized, and thorough. He took care of all of the details--that made us feel very comfortable. We would highly recommend him as a real estate consultant.

Stephen & Nancy Wahlstrom


"He's knowledgeable about everything you want your realtor to know, and he's helpful and honest. He'll never spend a second attempting to sell you anything, but he will work very hard to see that your family finds a place where your dreams can grow into your reality. We couldn't be happier sitting in our home today. I can tell that you do not just do your job to earn a commission or to race as fast as you can to the "top". It's obvious that you actually care about the people and the dream that they are attempting to invest themselves within. And Hannah and I would like you to know that we will forever remember your gratuitousness in all that you did for us."

Hannah and Nate


I will recommend you to anyone and everyone.

D. Badger


Dave was professional a very helpful. As first time home buyers he made all of our appointments, and followed through the closing process. I felt above and beyond what he had to do.

Heather & Andrew


Thank you for going far more than the "extra mile" for us, both in the sale of our old house, and finding our new home. You were always there for us, whether exploring new possibilities or working to solve problems that came up. We will continue to recommend you.

Dale & Sandy Larsen


Dave was very good to work with. He went out of his way to help me throughout the process. He was knowledgeable & honest. Very pleasant and welcoming each time I visited the office. Wells Fargo and Rochester Title were also terrific.

Kenda Lichtenwalter


Kathryn and I wanted to express our gratitude and our assessment of the service you offered us in the purchase of a home. Your professionalism and hard work were the hallmarks of your service toward us. No one has ever worked harder or provided more tenacity in finding us a home than you. You're a credit to your industry and we will recommend you to anyone looking for a home in this area. Thank you David, we appreciate all of your hard work.

Mark and Kathryn Shaw


Dave helped us so much in this process. He didn't try pushing us into something we didn't want. We are so grateful that he also help us find a lender to go through.

Jeremy & Geneva Meyer


David looked out for my best interest. As a young home buyer, he had gone through great lengths in finding my perfect home, and make it mine.

Melanie Gudmunson


David was very thorough and on top of things. He was persistent and made sure our deal was done smoothly!

Andrew & Robin Kins


Dave is great! He has helped us buy and sell multiple properties. Great to work with!

Barb Foss & Joel Ayers


Dave's patience and honesty were critical in helping us find the right home while living half way across the country. Instead of rushing us, he advised us to back away from a property we liked due to an unresolved repair. It meant more work for Dave, but turned out to be the right move as we wound up with a beautiful home in excellent condition. Dave was tireless in answering our questions and always went the extra mile to ensure our experience went smoothly.

Jon & Alex Swartz


I have known Dave for 25 years, since we worked together at WCCO-TV/ Cable. When my parents were looking to sell their home in Rochester, Dave was my first and only suggestion on who to represent them. His cornerstones are Honesty and Integrity.

Mark D. Steen


We are very satisfied with the service that we received with our Realtor David Birka. When we came to Rochester, we decided it was best for us to rent. Do to some predatory lending practices; we were not comfortable with the whole real estate experience. I met with Dave and viewed a few homes at first. Dave was nice and very accommodating. He picked me up from my work downtown, and we were able to see several homes. Dave was never pushy, and actually pointed out things that would end up costing a lot of money to update and repair.

We were involved with a few multiple offer situations that Dave forewarned us about in this market. When we got our offer accepted, Dave went to work for us, and made sure that the repairs we asked for were completed, and our loan was ready for closing. Dave was available to answer questions and concerns; he always answered them in a timely and professional manner. He always looked out for our best interest. Dave was great to work with, and we would recommend him to anyone needing an honest helpful and knowledgeable realtor.

Linda & Steve


Dave,
The house hunting process was very different than expected! It was all very exciting and fun! We are settling into our home and absolutely love it here. We have not had too much time to sit back and relax, but all the hard work pays off, and we have enjoyed every minute of the experience. I think out of all the homes that we looked at... we chose the perfect house! It was the only one that felt like home as soon as we walked into the door. Thanks for all your help.

Kim & Nathan


Dave Birka was wonderful through the entire process of selling our mother's home. Dave made recommendations and provided the consultation that helped us in making the right decisions. His knowledge of the market, and work ethic resulted in an offer on our home, even though we were in a very tough real estate market. I would recommend Dave highly as a professional you can trust with the sale or purchase of your home. Thanks for everything!

Sharla Wagy


Dear Dave:

We wanted to write to thank you for all that you have done for us!  We want you to know what a huge blessing you have been to our family.

Selling our first home in such a professional manor, then helping us get through the building process, which was a great experience.  We then threw on more sale at you with our rental which you managed to complete in record time I might add!  You were the most supportive, patient, hard working, caring, and sincere person that we have ever met, and a great Realtor!  We couldn't be happier in our new home, and thanks to you, and the Maplewood Home family, we have the home of our dreams!

Many blessings to you in the future and to your family! You will be the first recommendation to anyone who is searching for a sale or a new home! We look forward to knowing that we can depend on you in the future!  If you ever need a reference, you let us know... and keep in touch!

The Schnell Family


Dave answered all questions and returned all phone calls promptly.  He educated and informed us about real estate properties.  He kept our "best interest" in mind.

David & Lori Eggert


Dave is a great person.  This was the first house that I bought on my own.  He was caring and always kept in touch with me.  He was always there when needed, and was always willing to help me out.

Naomi Klampe


Your professional and organized selling style really was my guiding light through this apprehensive and exciting time!  I am truly happy in my new residence, and I will refer your name and company at any opportunity.  Keep up the good work.

Nancy Nichols Hensley


Dave is an expert on Rochester, an organized manager, a tasteful decorator, and most importantly, a trusted friend.  He knew that we were busy people that enjoyed the outdoors; he lead us to a perfect match!  Dave continued to impress us with his work ethic and relentless efforts to ensure that we would build the perfect home. Dave made the choices simple, easy, and efficient.  He was truly there with us every step of the way.  We are extremely happy with our home and investment.  We are grateful to Dave Birka.  He is an honest, hard-working, knowledgeable Realtor and a wonderful person and friend.

Dr. Erik & Helena Summers


From our first contact with you, both Jeff and I felt confident you would be the perfect person to help us.  I also wanted to thank you for your calm and patience during our closing.  Not only were we doing this long distance, we had to deal with a mortgage fiasco and go to our back-up lender.  You knew I was panicked, but you stayed calm, assured us that everything was moving along as it should.  It helped me tremendously to know you were looking out for our best interests.  You can be sure we are recommending you to anyone we know!

Jessica & Jeffrey Punshon


You were patient and never advancing at a pace that was uncomfortable for me.  I appreciate not only your patience, but your understanding of my wants and needs in a home.  Being a first time home buyer can feel intimidating, but your ability to explain things clearly, and without overwhelming me, was exactly what I needed.  Your knowledge led me to a great home.  My family and I couldn't be happier with the house and we thank you so very much.

The Gilmore Family


David Birka is a thorough, knowledgeable, and motivated real estate agent who always has his eyes on the details and the needs of his client. We had five days to find a home at the end of January. (I was four and a half months pregnant at the time.) David did an excellent job of taking our needs into consideration when showing us the Rochester area and homes on the market, pointing out details in construction and location that otherwise we would not have noticed. In addition, David went above and beyond the call of duty to be available to us while we were in town looking for our new home 3; his accessibility and willingness to work hard was present every step of the way. 

We ultimately chose a home that was at the end stages of construction. With David we not only negotiated terms of the sale long distance, but also made a multitude of decisions regarding completion of the home. Once again, David exceeded our expectations, meeting various contractors at our new home, talking us through one decision after another, and taking numerous pictures of the house, tile samples you name it, along the way to further assist us through the process. Through all of the decisions we made, and changes we requested, David stayed on top of the necessary paperwork while at the same time coordinating in our stead with all of the players involved.

Ultimately, with his attention to detail, responsiveness and energy, David made our home buying process and all that came with it, smooth and free of glitches. David is a hard worker and he knows the business. His only interest truly is serving your best interests.

Jonathan & Leslie


Mr. Dave Birka truly exemplifies his motto:  "Serving your best interest is my only interest."  Dave is a dedicated professional who represents the best of his field.  We were blessed to have his as our Realtor in the selling of our house and in the purchasing of a new (construction) house.  In all parts of the process, he was a pleasure to work with.  His agenda focused on our goals and objectives, and we always felt that he was considerate of our feelings and concerns.  Dave is a tireless worker, and his involvement in all parts of the home buying and selling process was thorough, comprehensive, and, in many cases, far above what we would have expected from any real estate agent.  His kindness and caring in what can be quite an emotional process was a blessing to our entire family.  We would not hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone considering buying or selling their home, as we have already done so with many of our friends.

Dr. Edward & Linda Laskowski


Please accept our gratitude for your help in shepherding us through the process of purchasing our new home.  From the initial viewing, and through the sale and closing of our two existing houses, your measured guidance and wise counsel have been invaluable.  We are extremely pleased with our new house, and feel very fortunate to be able to call it "home." We are looking forward to many years here and will always remember your support and friendship during these significant transitions.  Feel free to stop by when you are in the neighborhood; we always look forward to visiting with you.

Barbara & Joel


Dave was very helpful!  Especially over long distance, and with our limited time in Rochester.  We were very impressed with how quickly he discerned what we were looking for and truly catered searches for us.  He was not pushy and we enjoyed working with him.

Ryan & Leslie


Thank you very much for your hard work and thoughtfulness in representing us in the purchase of our new home.  We would certainly recommend you to others that need to contact a Realtor.  I am still interested in finding some investment property such as a duplex, triplex, or fourplex.  Thank you again for doing such a good job!

Arthur & Dorothy


Dave was the consummate professional.  Very patient and willing to go above and beyond to assist me and support me in my purchase of my new home!

Carole


We just want to thank you for selling our home, and for all the things you did to make it possible. Some of the things you did were:
1.) Found a contractor to repair damage to our home while we were hundreds of miles away.
2.) Coordinated with person representing my insurance company while we were away.
3.) Worked with roofer to get roof replaced
4.) Made suggestions and changed trim color front of house, carpet, and had a professional install a sump pump.
5.)  Secured one of his many contacts to remove the snow in our absence.
6.) Dried out wet areas of home after storm damage.
7.) Contacted trash removal company to clean out garage and remove construction debris.
8.) Kept us informed with photos of the home repairs and weekly updates.

We were away from our home and living in our new home several states away. We never felt a need to worry about anything that needed to be done because David was always a phone call away, and took good care of anything problems that cropped up. Dave is certainly the best Realtor that we have ever had, and we highly recommended Dave to anyone needing a super REALTOR.

Thanks Dave!

Bill & Doreth Coleman


We love coming to the Coldwell Banker Appreciation Day, we've been fortunate to be able to attend the past couple of years and we now look forward to it every year as a yearly event in our day to day lives.

I think it;s wonderful you do this for all your clients.  Thank you for letting us partake in this event, we really appreciate it.

Hannorah Olson


I am grateful, lucky to know you. You have really been beyond the realtor role to us.

Ahmad Farij


Our home sale was an emotional situation for our family, with tight timeframes and even tighter finances. We actually had to move across the country before the house was sold, leaving Dave to handle everything! He was great about making sure the house was being maintained, and arranging for any contractors, etc. The sale became a short sale, and Dave was diligent in getting all the paperwork done and following up with the banks, until finally it was done! His calm throughout the process made us feel like everything would be ok.

Jeffrey & Jessica


Dave,

I don't know how to thank you for all you have done for us. We are so relieved that this process is over and we are able to call this a short sale and not a foreclosure. You worked so hard and did so many above-and-beyond things to make this sale happen, we could never repay you.

We appreciate your being with us every step of the way. You began this relationship by giving us detailed information regarding short sales, and informing us of the experience you had with other short sales which gave us a lot of confidence. Certainly this short-sale process took longer then we expected, but your continuous updates and working to try and stay a step ahead of the banks, etc. made the process much smoother for us. I am certain you kept some things completely transparent to us as well. Your willingness to step in and navigate through the mine fields of the bankruptcy rules gave us additional comfort. I am so happy we signed with you. Your expertise with the short-sale process, the housing market in Rochester and willingness to work with us long distance, lifted much stress and brought Mom and me great peace of mind.

Thank you so much for making all this come together and giving us a bright spot in a very stressful time in our lives.

Lynda


Concerning Mr. Birka as our realtor, and as we call him by his first name, David, as he has become our friend, is the most caring and professional person that one could deal with on selling or buying a home. David sold our home in 11 weeks in a down market, and never complained if we asked him to have more than one open house. He is a very easy person to talk to and gave us good advice. David also sold us the home we are now living in. No matter how many times we wanted to look at it before we bought, he always was available with a smile and on time. This I would tell anyone-Mr. Birka is the person to sell your home, and if you want to buy, he will work hard to get what you want!

Thank you - Danke-Schoen

Leo & Elfriede


Dave Birka served us effectively as the listing agent for our sale of a 5 acre parcel of buildable property north of Rochester. He was very responsive, kept us informed of developments, and took the steps needed to be sure that the property would show well. Most important was his positive, can-do attitude. This was especially important for us since we live more than 1,000 miles away and needed to have regular, informative updates on developments. Dave did a good job for us.

K/A Darr


We had an amazing experience working with Dave Birka as our realtor. We did meet a few realtors and as soon as we met Dave, we knew he was the one that was right for us! After owning a house for only a short few months, job relocation forced us to move south. We turned to Dave to help us sell our house in this "bad housing market." We were on a short time-line to sell our house, and Dave did a fantastic job getting our house on the market in a timely fashion. Dave did a wonderful job taking pictures of our house, and made colorful pamphlets for potential home buyers to take home after a walk-through of the house. Throughout the process, Dave was very approachable and always kept us updated with any new information. We were absolutely amazed that our house sold in less than a week!!!! Without Dave's expertise we do not feel it would have sold that fast. When the new home buyers did their final walk through, they were having trouble with the oven. Dave ran over to the house and used his magic to fix the oven. He truly went above and beyond our expectations!! Thank you Dave!

Alec and Katy


Thank you Mr. Birka for the service you gave to us. You went well beyond the "normal" scope of most realtors and went that extra mile.

The Hardy Family


I have had the interesting experience of buying and selling a house in the span of a few years and I am thankful to have had Dave guide me through both experiences. I bought my house as a single, first time home buyer and I thought that Dave listened to what I needed and that he represented me accurately. It was helpful to have his insight on the houses we looked at and he was flexible to schedule showings when my work schedule allowed. Dave answered my many questions timely and in way that I understood. I knew I was in good hands! I was really happy with the house I bought and was pleased with the final price and the ease of closing, mostly because of Dave's expertise. A few years later, marriage and relocation made it necessary to sell the house and I turned to Dave again. We were apprehensive about the changing market and about selling the house we had owned for a short amount of time. Dave provided a thorough market analysis and helped us understand the competition. He worked closely with us to set the price and then lower it as we felt comfortable. We valued Dave's experience and thoughts and never felt pressured to make a certain decision. Dave was very encouraging when we moved out of state while the house was still on the market. He was very helpful during the negotiation process. The week we closed on the house, Dave exceeded our expectations; meeting a service company at the house, and even doing some minor repairs himself. Dave walked us through the paperwork, and went to the closing. After we sold the house, the new buyers had trouble with the fireplace. Dave went to the house, trouble shooted the fireplace, and then found a replacement part locally at a much lower price than the distributor was asking. He put the new part in and got it working for the new owners. We are really happy to have sold our house with Dave. I would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Thanks Dave!
