Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA.
The first time I spoke and met Dave, I knew he meant business. He put my house up for sale in 3 days and had it sold in less than a week. Then we closed eacrow in less than 3 weeks.
I told him that I did not want to move twice before I bought my next home. He engineered a rent back to the buyer of my home so I could find a nice new home. It worked out great and he was with us every step of the way. He will go out of his way to provide you what you need...he clearly takes care of his customers. Here you go Dave 5 STARS !!!!

Dave Zimkim was referred to us as we were attempting to purchase a home as a short sale through an auction. I truly believe the stars were aligned for us to have the opportunity to meet a Realtor of his professional caliber and personal integrity! Dave guided us through the auction and contracting process, letting us know the potential pitfalls and benefits of acquiring the property. I asked for guidance in choosing a lender and Dave promptly provided us with 4 contacts that he felt would be right for us, but didn't interfere as we evaluated them all until we were comfortable with our choice. Dave kept us informed every step of the way and promptly responded to our requests and queries. Dave's expert negotiation skills allowed us, as buyers, and the sellers to reach amicable arrangements to close the sale in record time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DAVE ZIMKIN to service all real estate needs, whether buying or selling. He is a true and honest professional who will be our Realtor for life!
Dealing with Dave was the BEST real estate experience a person could ask for. When a glitch came up his response was always the same: "Don't worry, we'll fix it!" and he did. We would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to sell or buy a piece of property.

I think the only thing I could say that was bad was that he moved to quickly. I started the process with David in late March. I was told that the entire process would likely be completed by the end of August. Then he called and said 7-20-12 and again another call moving it up to 7-17-12. Oh but wait, that's a good thing not bad. David not only moved my house quickly and professionally, he also helped me to sell my side by side refrigerator when I ran out of time and had no place to move it to once the house closed escrow. For all of you ongoing customers, as well as future customers, let me just say you really can put your whole trust in David. He was not only patient with my many questions and insecurities, he got the job done in record time. One of my daughter's clients referred him to me, I referred him to another of my daughters and I would not hesitate to continue to refer other friends, family and acquaintances to him. Thanks David you’re awesome.
Dave was the perfect realtor for me. I was the buyer of a short sale property, and he definitely knew the proceedures and got the deal through escrow as quickly as possible. He always answered my emails and phone calls immediately and kept me up to date on where we were in the escrow. He kept the documents flowing efficiently and we closed escrow in the shortest time possible. You will enjoy working with him, and you can count on him to be honest and professional.

What can I say - Dave's is a 10 of 10 in persistence, patience and resourcefulness, and most importantly, he truly has his clients' best interest in mind. This 2012 short sale is my second transaction with Dave, and I have come to realize that he knows just about everyone in the business. We had two buyers fall through during this deal, but Dave never missed a beat - the same day, he had another one lined up and had the paperwork to me. If you need investors, lenders, bankers, you name it - Dave knows them, has a good relationship with them, and he will make the deal happen. On top of that he's a good guy and easy to talk to. DZ is the only realtor I would ever recommend to anyone for doing business in SD County.

Our experience with Dave was wonderful! We are newly engaged, first-time home buyers, and we found our perfect home thanks to Dave. Throughout the process, Dave was extremely helpful and happy to answer any questions we had...and we had a lot! He is a real expert at what he does and he worked so hard to help us get this property. We heard short sales can take forever and be a real pain, but we were in our home in record time! He exceeded our expectations and we will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

David Zimkin helped my family complete a short sale of our home, which was located in rural San Diego county. David was positive and determined to find us a buyer right from the start. He saw the saturated market in our neighborhood as an opportunity. David kept us updated often and was available at a moments notice to address our concerns and questions. Mr. Zimkin found us a buyer and helped keep them motivated to stay in the sale, even when our lenders were dragging their feet. Our sale was completed in February of 2011 and there are still homes on our street that were for sale the same time as ours, and they still haven't sold!!! David was truly the difference.

I have asked for Dave's help on a number of transactions. Most recently I brought Dave in to help sell a property of one of my very best clients. Normally there are risks when you refer someone not knowing if the client will be treated as you would want them. When dealing with Dave I never worried and as expected the client had a great experience making me look better for referring such a pro. I am always looking for more ways to include Dave and his people in my clients transactions.
Dave was referred to us by a family friend and we are so thankful for all of his help. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the in's and out's of the entire process and trusted him completely. If there was something we questioned about the property or something we did not like, he immediately approached the seller with our concern and it was solved. He took the time to completely understand what it was we were looking for and helped us purchase our very first house. He not only was a great realtor, but he became our friend. We would recommend him to anyone. He genuinely cares and makes sure everyone in the party is happy.
