David was a true pro to work with. I learned through his Facebook post that rates had suddenly dropped, and since I wanted to refinance my house these news couldn't have came at a more perfect timing. David is very responsive; he would either pick up the phone every time I called, or called right back. He is also very thorough; thanks to him we always knew what we needed to do and what documents to prepare. If we slacked a bit, he had no issue reminding us. Being in the business of real estate delays are just part of the game, but this refinance transaction had none of those, mostly because David knew how to put us, and keep us on the path to success. We ended up refinancing for 30 years at an AMAZING rate, which I haven't known about if it wasn't for David. Had we waited on contacting David for more than a couple of days, and if he didn't work as fast as he did we wouldn't have gotten the rate we have.
David is extremely professional, responsive and knowledgeable. This is my first home purchase, and thanks to his great service, it went very smoothly. David set us up for complete success, for he was able to anticipate potential problems and ensure that all the documentation we needed was secured.
David helped us buy our first home. He took the time to explain the whole process to us, and was always happy to answer any questions we had (day, night or weekend). He was extremely responsive and organized. We had a very smooth home buying process despite the short timeline. We would highly recommend David to anyone looking to buy a home!

David worked with us to obtain a mortgage for our recent purchase of a new house. The financial process is typically such a tedious process but David was there from day one to make everything as stress free as possible. Our first meeting was at a local coffee shop (I didn't get that kind of personal attention with my first house using lending tree) where David looked through my financial information and we had a nice conversation about homes and neighborhoods. Within a day or two I knew exactly what I was qualified to purchase. After the offer was made on the house David was great at keeping in touch to let me know what documents were needed and kept me right on schedule. Everything was seamless from start to finish and I would highly recommend David to my friends and would certainly use him again should I decide to move in the future.

David helped me and my husband secure a mortgage for our new home, and working with him was an absolute pleasure. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and he patiently and thoroughly walked us through the entire process. He made himself available whenever we needed him, day, night, or even weekends. He kept us on schedule, reminding us of what was due when, and he kept me organized, which is no small feat. He was also very helpful when it came to bringing in a title company and homeowners insurance, and his suggestions led us to get a very good insurance rate. David is always friendly, very dependable, and he made a difficult process pretty painless. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.

David was wonderful throughout the entire process of purchasing our first home. He immediately responded whenever we had questions and kept the mortgage application process moving. David was not available for our settlement - but in his place he sent a colleague who was wonderful as well! We'll definitely use him again if/when we decide to begin the mortgage process again.
My husband and I are first-time home buyers- David worked with us on what I presume to be one of the most difficult closings possible. Throughout the process he remained professional and extraordinarily helpful to us. David's devotion to each individual client is what sets him apart from others and, in my opinion, this is of utmost importance when making such a huge and emotional purchase.
I've recommended David to my friends, will continue to do so, and will definitely use him again in the future.

My name is Mina, I'm 28 years old, and I worked with David for the past few months this year; as my broker, to find and purchase my first home.
I was not very knowledgeable. I read my books, and tried to do research to the best of my abilities. However, I still needed real guidance, and a clear explanation of what I needed to do. I took to the internet to try to put together a team that would get me exactly what I wanted, and gratefully I nailed it on my first try.
I contacted Janette Spirk-Cayne, who became my realtor. And she recommended David Frankel to be my broker. Within months of completing my search, and closing on the house. I actually purchased my first home! I went through the whole process with professionals that were hands on and very knowledgeable about the whole process. They were technologically savvy, and responded immediately to any questions or home inquiries I had. Which is so very important in this kind of process, which requires night and day communication, and is very time consuming.
For some people they think buying a house is impossible, or too hard, or too expensive. It’s a lot more tangible than you think, and with the hard work of David, and Janette, I was able to get exactly what I wanted, with a great price. He fought to make sure I was properly represented, and that made me feel comfortable that I was in good hands, and being looked out for. I have nothing but awesome recommendations for my friends and family!
If you are serious about making a great decision for your life, well-being, and future, a house is the second step. The first step is finding a great team. I was able to get what I wanted with David, and I believe he can do it for anyone who is committed and ready to make that choice.

David helped us with our mortgage for our first home. We were initially working with our credit union but found that their 9-5 hours and lack of a "personal touch" didn't work with our busy schedules and needs as first-time home buyers. David offered the flexibility and personalized attention we desired. He was quick to answer emails and phone calls, made himself available according to our schedules, and took great care to answer all our questions. He made the home buying process a breeze!
I would HIGHLY recommend David to anyone looking to purchase a new home. We worked with David for over 6 months as we tried to find that perfect property. During that time, David was always available to "run the numbers" and provide helpful information on a number of properties. When it came to the property we ended up purchasing, he took time during his vacation to personally contact the seller to reassure them with all the financing details. He made the process painless and worry free. Once again, cant give him a high enough recommendation!
