We have bought and sold 4 homes with David over the years. In every instance he has always gone above and beyond for us. David responds immediately to any questions or concerns we have had no matter how minor. He knows the market and area including future building and discloses all. He is one of the most honest people I know and I always feel comfortable that he will problem solve any issue with integrity and knowledge. I would never consider using anyone else. Superb!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Pembroke, MA.
Dave is great to work with. He helped me through the process of preparing, staging and selling my house. I was a very reluctant seller, having built and lived in the house for some 35 years, but Dave preserved!
He was calm but firm with me and keep the process going. He sold my house on the first day it was on the Market.
We have not bought or sold a home in more than 25 years and were nervous about engaging in the process. David was/is very supportive, positive and helped keep us on track on a timeline that would surely have dragged on without him. Knowledge of the area, availability, honesty, responsiveness and attention to detail are all qualities we look for and David is the "real deal" possessing all those qualities and more! He truly works for the client and goes above and beyond time and time again. We couldn't ask for a more complete package. David delivers!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Chestnut Hill, MA.
We have worked with many realtors over the years and there is simply none that even comes close to David Drinkwater. He is outstanding in every dimension from thoroughness to insight to follow through. But he is so much more than that. Recently we had a loss in the family and we turned to David to help us sell the property. We weren’t living nearby and he stepped up in ways that were simply heartwarming. He went above and beyond helping us find ways to dispose of items in the apartment, giving almost every item not claimed by family a second life. After the property was sold, we received a box in the mail from him. In it were items from a drawer we had completely overlooked, old aprons from the 1950’s and my mother-in-law’s recipe file. Someone else might have tossed these things; David realized the potential sentimental value and saved them for us. David is not only an excellent realtor; he is an amazingly caring human being. We can’t recommend him highly enough.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Dover, MA.
David was the seller's agent on the home that we purchased. He was extremely fair and trustworthy. He was very responsive and thorough, and anticipated our questions before we even asked. What struck me the most about David was the support he gave to the sellers. They were an older couple and David went out of his way to help them. After the sellers moved out and before we moved in, there was an issue with the garage door which was caused by one of the contractors. David came out and got everything resolved for the sellers. He genuinely loves his job and that comes through to his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their house.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Scituate, MA.
We have moved twenty times over the past 35 years and have had the opportunity to work with numerous brokers around the country. David is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with -- in every dimension (judgment, thoroughness, insight, follow-through, etc.). If Zillow had a more-than-masterful/excellent-plus category, David would have achieved this rating in every skill area. We cannot recommend David more highly and if we ever move back to the Boston area, we would work with David again without any hesitation.
Bought a home in 2014 in Scituate Harbor, MA 02066.
Dave Drinkwater was a pleasure to work with! As first time home buyers we had lots of questions and Dave was there every step of the way to help us understand the process. He was always quick to return any phone calls and was readily available to meet. Moving from North Carolina to the South Shore could have been difficult, but Dave made it a piece of cake! Dave is extremely knowledgeable about the South Shore and we will recommend him to all of our family and friends! We cannot thank him enough!!
Sold a home in 2013 in Brantwood Manor, Norwell, MA 02061.
We could not have asked for a better agent during the sale of our house than David Drinkwater! He was an expert on the market and specifically our area on the South Shore, enabling us to feel confident in all of our decisions. David was kind and patient and helped us every step of the way. Our house was sold at lightening speed and we are so grateful to have had such an amazing agent on our side. Just the best!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Duxbury, MA.
Dave is at the top of his profession and the most knowledgeable agent in the Boston area. He helped us every step of the way when considering dozens of properties for more than a year. He professionalism and ability to provide advice was focused completely on finding us the RIGHT house. We considered fixer-uppers, antiques and newer properties and his insight kept us on track until we finally found the perfect house in Duxbury. I would not consider any other agent and highly recommend Dave, whether you are selling or buying real estate.
And we now consider Dave a great friend.
