We highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a personable, resourceful and knowledgeable agent. Dave was patient with us during our search for the perfect home, he was very responsive, and he ultimately helped negotiate our purchase in a multiple offer setting. We appreciate his efforts and expertise. When the time comes to make another transaction, we will not hesitate to call Dave.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.175M in Manhattan Beach, CA.

My previous three real estate transactions left me wondering, "what could an agent possibly do to earn 2-3% for each side of a transaction"? On a per hour basis, it never made sense to me. My wife and I have done two transactions with Dave, and now I understand. Dave actually ADDS value to a transaction with his ability to negotiate and his understanding of the real estate market. On both the sell side and the buy side, Dave and his team guided the process from start to finish. As long as Dave will have us as clients, we'll never use another agent- whether in the South Bay or not!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.85M in Manhattan Beach, CA.

We interviewed Dave in 2012, looking primarily for an agent with a detailed understanding of the area, neighborhoods, and market forces. We explained that we were in no rush to find a home, so needed an agent that was willing to work with us until we found the right home for us. Dave was extraordinarily knowledgeable, and even more patient. He worked with us for two years and was especially helpful in identifying both properties and locations that he thought were best suited for us. In the end, we wound up with the perfect house on the perfect street. Dave guided us through the bidding and purchase process with ease and professionalism. Highly recommend.  More Less
