Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $575K in Gatewood, Seattle, WA.
Not only did Dave bring a wealth of knowledge and wisdom to the table, he also was on top of things so that we didn't miss out on any opportunities. He understood our needs, educated us to make informed decisions, was always very responsive, and lots of fun to work with. He was very patient throughout our lengthy search, and then very effective in negotiating a great deal once we found the right place.

I would send any family, co-worker or friend to this agent every single time without fail. You definitely want him on your side as your advocate and spokesperson. Very trust worthy and will pull out all of the stops to fight to get in the best negotiating position possible. Very truthful about the whole process even when it hurts to hear in our current economy. Integrity is tough to find in the real estate industry... he is the one to prove it's attainable.

David Smith assisted my Mom in the sale of her home over 15 years ago. She is still talking about his service, patience and knowledge to this day. That is what guided our decision to hire David as our agent four years ago when we were looking to purchase a new home. His service was excellent on every level. He is the only Agent we would ever use. We love our house and when we are ready to move on he is the agent we will be contacting.

David first helped us purchase a home in the early 90's. It was our first time and he was extremely patient as he guided us through the home buying process. He helped us broaden our search criteria to include up and coming areas we hadn't considered before. We found the perfect house for us at the time. When we chose to sell the property 5 years later, David was the only choice to be our listing agent. He found us a buyer as our asking price almost immediately. We will be using David Smith in all our future real estate transactions.

I've known Dave for many years now and have purchased two homes through him, both times his knowledge and service were exemplary and I would have no problem recommending him to anyone interested in real estate in the Seattle area. He not only knows the market, but has the keen insight to understand your needs and show you properties that meet your expectations.

Dave Smith is as knowledgeable as they come in the Seattle market! He has been there throughout all the different trends in the Seattle real estate market. This longevity gives him the upper hand in all aspects of the business. He has assisted me in buying, listing and selling of several of my properties – along with many close friends of mine that use him exclusively as well. If you are looking for an agent that will listen to what your needs are, both buying and selling – Dave is your best choice!

I am a local builder and have worked with Mr. Smith for many years. Dave has represented me on both the buying and selling of many properties. Dave has found a number of properties that were below market value even when the market was hot. He has also done an excellent job in representing my houses on the selling side. I would highly recommend Dave for his knowledge of the local market and ability to negotiate for his clients.

I am a tough customer who also gets solicited by a lot of real estate agents but I would always stay loyal to David. He is extremely knowledgable and responsive and a great negotiator. Many real estate agents just want to get a deal done but David wants you to get a great house at a great price and will tell you how to do it including being willing to walk away from an unreasonable seller. He is very knowledgable about construction as well so can tell the well built houses and remodels from the poorly done ones. He tells it straight.

I have known David for 20 plus years. He has helped me and my family with our residential and investment real estate needs. He has guided us through 5 plus real estate deals either as a buyer agent or as a seller agent. He is equally adept at either side of the equation and knows the Greater Seattle area intimately. His combination of experience, attention to detail and negotiating skills is unmatched in today's economy and market. I am a CPA and he's impressed me with his numbers acumen. You will not go wrong if you go into business with him. He's been involved in over 1000 home sale transactions in his career and has a proven track record.
