Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Guerneville, CA.
I always look for specialists in an area when I buy real estate (this is my 3rd purchase in the San Francisco Bay Area) and know we found one for the Russian River with David R. Millar. Every question we asked, he had on the tip of his tongue or he researched an answer for to the point of our satisfaction. And he got back to me so quickly with texts and phone calls.
He is incredibly knowledgeable on this geography and loves the area so much, he's a perfect realtor for the area. Just give him the qualities you want in a home and he puts together a day of touring for you that not only helps you narrow down what you're looking for but informs you on so much about the area. We didn't know the Russian River that well but David told us stories, told us background, told us what regulations were important, everything to get us up to speed even how septic tanks function and are regulated! We felt he was so honest and straightforward. He kept me focused when my questions went off track.
We toured with him one Sunday, went back on another day midweek and had a bid on a place by Friday. That's how informed he made us in one week. He connected us with an insurance agent, the most reputable septic contractor in the area, even with our new contractor who's a local fireman so we know everything is done up to code. We are so excited for our beautiful little two bedroom 1.5 miles up the hill from the River surrounded by redwoods away from any traffic! We are MORE than happy with the service David provided us. He's definitely 5 stars in our book!

We would have never found our perfect home without David's superior knowledge of the Russian River area. david really gets to know you and the type of property you are looking for. David is always super prepared when compiling lists of properties to visit. His insider information on the area, and homes we visited was second to none. That deep understanding of what we were looking for, and the areas we were looking at was extremely valuable. We feel fortunate to have had David as our Realtor!

David is one of a small handful of local experts in the Russian River. If you buy in the RR area you need to leave your hometown favorite agent at home. West Sonoma has its quirks and you need someone who knows the ropes.
David was patient,readily available with the exception of during the time he went to church BUT he made sure I always had someone to cover my needs at any time. I respected that his beliefs were important to him and that he made them a priority.
All went well in a contentious closure David provided level headed advice even though the seller was squirrely and tried to back out.
We have worked with David in the past. He is great at showing us homes suitable for the specific purpose. The first home is a rental so he showed us homes to purchase suited for renting. The second home is our primary residence.
Once again, showing us homes with the purpose of being our residence.
David is a great negotiator.
He gets fast results and won't waste your time.

We were delighted to have found David Millar as our realtor through Zillow. As first time home buyers, we needed a lot of advice to navigate the real estate process and the very local market to which we wanted to move.
David helped us in many ways; he took his time showing us diverse properties, and he was happy to show a variety of price ranges. Ultimately, he understood what we needed from a home and suggested we tour a property we hadn't selected ourselves. The house was perfect, and we wouldn't have found it without David's help.
When it came time for escrow, inspections, and negotiations, David provided sound advice while still making it clear that all the decisions were ours to make. He referred us to local insurance agents and a mortgage broker, which was essential to closing on our house quickly and with great confidence.

Please note that the heading above only allowed for a single transaction. David helped me with more than one, and in years other than the one specified.
David Millar has helped me through the purchase and sale of my Sonoma County properties in a professional and diligent manner. When I was buying, he listened intently, and then in a short period of time presented me with several choices that were all within my criteria parameters. When I was selling, David’s awareness of the moving market conditions helped me profit while most others struggled.
His ability to clarify the path ahead gives me the confidence I need to make informed decisions. During all my transactions with him his responses have been quick, accurate, and have guided me through some pretty murky waters that could’ve otherwise left me stranded and nervous.
David Millar is an individual who has the rare combination of both a commanding understanding of his profession and a hard-hitting work ethic that gets the job done. When you get this guy on your side there is no let-up on the flow of ideas to promote and encourage sales, or to find new ways to finance, or to uncover potential pitfalls (or discover unrecognized advantages) in, on, and from your target property. David is not a salesman. David is an active, articulate, and energetic advocate that you need on your side when you want your property goals met. Through every aspect of a sale or purchase, he has the answers and the experience needed to execute a well informed, discerning transaction.
David is an expert in foreclosures and short sales. He identified properties based on listening to my needs and understanding my financial limitations. There were times when I wanted to look at properties and he always made himself available.
How would I describe my experience with David Millar and Company? I was a first time buyer and I found him very friendly, professional and knowledgable. He went the extra mile to find me the perfect property within my budget and in the neighborhood that worked for me. He found me a lender that also was friendly and professional. Together they were the total package! He was also very honest, trustworthly and patient. I would recommend him highly and to all my friends.
