Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Canoga Park, CA.
David was the consummate professional to work with. He assisted with both the sale of my home, and the search for and purchase of a new home. David possesses the characteristics and qualities that I believe a quality Agent should have: a professional demeanor, knowledge about the market, patience in dealing with his client, tenacity in both the search and purchase/sale process, and most importantly the ability and capacity to listen and to be sensitive to the emotions his client is going through in the process. The process of finding and purchasing my home was long and incredibly stressful, but David's grace, good humor, patience, and professionalism made it that much easier.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $950K in Calabasas, CA.
I have dealt with many realtors over the years, David is exceptional. No games, just a very comfortable professionalism. My sale was quick, simple and everything about it was better than I had thought possible. The escrow company he recommended was just as he is, professional, pleasant, accommodating and very adept at what they do. Instead of a stressful and difficult time David made it a pleasure. Heck, he even took care of some items I needed to remove from the house for me. I would wish every transaction could be so good, I think David Watkins works hard to make that possible.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $2.75M in Thousand Oaks, CA.
David found my fiance and I a home in Lake Sherwood. He was never pushy with us and always gave his honest opinion about each house we saw. He was patient as we looked at multiple homes in Calabasas, Westlake's North Ranch, equestrian properties, and finally Lake Sherwood. He negotiated with the listing agent and got us the best price possible. David has been in the business for many years and is a great Realtor!!
We were initially drawn to David Watkins as our selling agent by his extensive advertising, which did not disappoint and in the end captured exactly what we had hoped to in our home listing. After meeting him and discussing our needs, we were additionally impressed by a number of other factors. He was easy to talk with, efficient in his language and clear on his opinions, but not overbearing, providing us with just the right amount of direction that we needed to make decisions. Key to the success of our working relationship was the critically functional role that his office manager Danielle served in coordinating a myriad of small yet critical details. She always replied promptly to emails and calls and kept the whole process tightly organized. David and Danielle demonstrated the highest level of professionalism in our home sale. They are an extremely knowledgeable team that worked very hard and diligently to keep us happy and provided much appreciated guidance on issues that we had struggled to find solutions to on our own before their help.
My wife and I have had three experiences with David. Two sales and one purchase. Without hesitation we heartily recommend him and his staff for owners and buyers.
He and his staff are heads and above all other brokerages, not only in his area but nationwide. We can specifically laud the services of agent Kimberly Cuza and staff administrator Danielle Fernandez. As an attorney I am highly critical of real estate brokers and agents, having had negative times during both sales and purchases.....this has NEVER happened with David and Pinnacle Realty. We consider him a most accomplished professional as well as a friend.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Calabasas, CA.
My family and I have used David Watkins for all our real estate needs and he has always delivered! I would recommend David to my friends and family whenever I am asked and never hesitate to call him for anything related to homes in the Calabasas area. You can call him during the day, at night, on off hours, holidays, or weekends and he always will answer the phone.
He and his staff are a pleasure to do business with at all times!
I have worked with many different agents throughout the past few years and David Watkins has defintely been the best. He has extensive knowledge in the housing industry, strong negotiation skills, helpfulness mentality, and honest. David helped myself and my entire family purchase properties over the last year in the Calabasas area. He will continue to earn my business and earn my referrals.
