We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Wymer, Ellensburg, WA 98926
Initially contacted him through Zillow via a property that was listed for sale, also gave him a list of what I was looking for (size, features, rooms) in a home asking what else he had available during a follow up phone call. All seven of the properties he put in my portal were nothing like what I had asked for, and none of them were in the ballpark range of price I was looking for (and was available). Had a good list of properties, but preferred to lean too heavily on his online tool and very little actual listening to what I was telling him.
He also told me Zillow is a bad place to shop for a house as they're "usually out of date, as much as a year," when that turned out not to be the case on my purchase at all. Zillow updated the home I bought as sold via the county registry before I even got the call saying closing had finished.
This was our first home and we didn't understand the process to go about selling it. David did a great job walking us through it and providing an excellent level of service the whole way through the process. David also facilitated us doing the necessary inspections and touch-ups on our home to maximize the selling price.
This sale also included a particularly frustrating buyer with whom David worked with very successfully to get the deal done. He was also extremely patient with my wife and I while we were going through this frustrating closing experience.

David is the man that gets things done. He has now helped us buy three houses, and sell 2 of them. He has guided us well, even when our own instincts led us to what we thought was good. He let us look, presented us with realities, then helped us find what was right for our changing needs. He is so on top of things that he sold our last house (in only a few days for above asking) and closed on our new house (which was a long drawn out short sale) all in the same week.. while we were on vacation. He has a great network of folks to pull in for hose prep/fix and to handle all the "bumps in the road". This last house was so easy because I knew David had our backs.
David is the man. As a first time home buyer he made the unnerving and scary process very smooth and educational. Once my wife and I outlined what we were looking for in a home, the locations we would like to live and our price range he immediately went to work and gave us several options to look at.
When it came to the negotiating a price, there is no one that I would rather have on my side.

Feel relieved, it’s your LUCKY DAY, your search for an OUTSTANDING real estate agent is FINALLY over.... I am not one to write many reviews, so I will cut to the chase... David Sprague WILL, without a doubt, go the EXTRA mile for you as he did for me!!!
David is a true real estate professional; he’s very responsive, personable, caring, easy to work with, and he will provide you with detailed explanation and reasoning behind his advice. He understands the competitive nature of the market. His pricing is fair and his unrivaled work ethic makes him worth every penny. He possesses many VALUABLE resources that allow him to be capable of making the IMPOSSIBLE happen!!!
Luckily, a very close friend of mine, Bill, referred me to David. My name is Mike. I am an officer/veteran of the USAF with 20 years of military service. Unfortunately, I was unemployed for one year after transitioning from active duty. I am a first time home buyer with excellent credit that was experiencing unbelievable road blocks during the pre-approval process. I just recently lost my Father and I was trying to purchase his home from the family estate. This was a VERY DIFFICULT process that most other real estate agents would NOT even touch without me paying them top dollar from the estate. I needed HELP!
I told David about my timely and desperate situation; he gathered his resources and hit the ground running that very same day. Before I knew it, I was on a 3 way conference call with his colleagues and somehow, HE MADE IT ALL HAPPEN!!! (I choke up with joy)
David Sprague promised me in the beginning that there is always a way to make things happen, he kept his promise, and unbelievably, surely delivered. It feels so good that I will never need to look for another real estate agent. You have to meet David; he is very flexible and fair throughout the entire process. I am very grateful to pass along this referral for his services with the absolute HIGHEST recommendation!!
When you call David, please tell him Air Force Mike sent you!
David, very knowledgeable and took the time to listen to our needs. He was timely and responsive to all the questions we had during the property evaluation, listing and selling process. He helped us prepare the property for open houses so it will show well. He worked hard for us to sell our home at the price we wanted.
David helped me find a condo in Seattle area during my relocation. Without question he was an exceptional realtor to work with. He listened intently to my wants and needs and worked tirelessly to find me exactly what I was looking for. He knows the Seattle area very well, and was able to find me a great part of the community to call home.
After finding the right condo for my needs, he was instrumental in finalizing all the paperwork and making sure that everything was done on the up and up. He followed up through the move-in to make sure I had everything I needed to get settled.
Without question, David is an incredibly knowledgeable and highly professional realtor, whom I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for someplace to call home in the Seattle area.

David Sprague was referred to us by very dear friends. I remember our friends EXACT words….. “If you are going to do this, you need to call David Sprague.”
I am thankful that we did.
David Sprague was professional, courteous and has a GREAT sense of humor. My wife and I have bought and sold several homes prior to working with David and we have never before had the great service coupled with a high level of experience until we were able to work with David.
David was skillful in negotiations concerning our purchase. He guided us through the process and was able to see each bump in the road before we did. With David Sprague we experienced the smoothest home purchase of our lives..
David excels in marketing. He sold our home on Mercer Island getting us top dollar.
We high recommend David Sprague to anyone that is either thinking about selling or buying a home. Working with David Sprague was a 5 STAR experience. We will use him again.

David did an excellent job helping us find a house. Before we were able to come look at houses (we were living on the east coast) David would go check out homes of interest we had found on the internet. We loved David's website for looking up houses. His was the only site (available to us) that would show us if a house was a short sale or bank owned which was very helpful to us in the selection process. He really knows the area and we liked his straightforward manner.
