Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $750K in Burlingame, CA.
Our experience with David Tapper was exceptional. Both transactions, the selling of our property, which sold in 8 days and the purchase of our new home took 4 weeks Had we not had David as our Relator it more than likely would have taken longer to find our new home. His advice and level of knowledge of the area and what we were looking for was superb. I highly recommend David, we will work with him when we are ready to trade up to a larger home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $850K in Parkside, San Francisco, CA.
Dave Tapper was recommended to me by a mutual friend whom I respect greatly. My friend said, "This is your guy, you need not look further. I've known him for over 20 years and never once has he let me or a client down." Well, that was good enough for my wife and I in our search for a home in San Francisco.

Dave was proactive and diligent the entire time. He fought for us and made sure we were making a sound decision. He is candid, direct, enthusiastic, driven as well as being a warm and caring person. Although we were scouring the listings ourselves it was Dave who solely discovered our home. He listened to exactly what was important to us and when he found this house he knew that this was to be our home for many years to come. He called me right up and I met him at the house & knew too that this was the place. I brought my wife the following day, Wednesday, she loved it too & we made an offer. That Friday of the same week our offer was accepted. Dave was masterful in negotiations and of the handling of the documents & procedures involved.

It has been a great pleasure knowing Dave and his family over the years. It is with ease that we call him a true friend.

Sold a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $550K in San Bruno, CA.
David Tapper is truly one of the best in the real-estate industry. David Tapper is a great person that under promises and over delivers! He'll listen to your needs and ask the right questions to ensure the path forward is clear and concise! He'll do what it takes to get the job done. I had the opportunity to work with David Tapper on several transactions and there are not too many people that possess David's knowledge of Real-Estate. His knowledge is unsurpassed in buying and selling homes. David has leveraged all of his real-estate knowledge to provide the best service to all parties evolved in a transaction. I would not hesitate to recommend David Tapper to anyone mainly because he has helped me several times during the buying, selling and escrow process and I owe him huge debt of gratitude for the current home I am in.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Parkside, San Francisco, CA.
We had some particular concern regarding to credits and mortgages which may hinder our chance of buying a property. Before we met Dave, we had interviewed several other agents. They all either turned us away or simply did not contact us further after the initial meeting. One of those agents even told us that because of the complication on our loans, we should not consider buying if we do not have the ability to pay all cash for the transaction. We were so discouraged by those practices till we were referred to Dave. Working with Dave was such a pleasure. When we started, he took the time to hear us out, addressed our concerns and suggested to us that we should keep looking at houses while working out the loan issues. Because we live 2 hours away from the bay, it is quite a commute to see houses in and around the City. Dave was so accommodating that he always tried his best to group all openings/tours and block out trunks of time for us in the same day to make every tour worth our gas/time/energy. We met some other agents with high pressure sales tactics before, so going into this purchase, my husband and I would hate to be pressured into anything. Given the ridiculously crazy market in the City, it is almost a dream that you would find an agent who cares you more than making the sales. Fortunately for us, we encountered NO SALES PITCH from Dave, zero! He did not talk us into anything. After we toured the properties, he only spoke about the pros and cons about the houses as he took his agent visual alongside us. He actually cooled us down a couple times when we got overly impressed by the cosmetic fixes some properties have done and pointed us to the hidden problems that we blind sighted ourselves with. Dave always tells us that his job is not to sell us the house; the house itself would do that. We learned so much about houses in those tours with Dave! Buying a house is not doubt a highly stressful and daunting process. Dave answered our millions of questions and took the time to make sure we understood what was going on throughout the process. It certainly helped us big time that Dave was very on top of things and was very responsive. Most of the time we had almost instant response from Dave after we either texted him or emailed him. And not once we hit his voice message box (can you imagine that?? In a 2-month house hunting period, NOT ONCE!). Sometimes he will let you know that he needs to give you a call back later, but he ALWAYS picks up the phone instead of just ignoring your call. Foreseeability is another thing that we deeply appreciate Dave for. He knows the process so well and guides us to walk the right path in the right pace. We know exactly when to rush things up and when to take a breath. Dave's negotiation skills are top-notch. He has a way to get what we want for us and he does NOT come across forceful in negotiation with the other party. He also knows almost everyone in the realtor community in the City and around the bay and his good relationship with the other realtors greatly benefited his customers, such as…us! We were able to get credit back on most of the closing costs and also a lower purchase price than the offer. We could not be happier to have found a house in our dream neighborhood with a reasonable purchase price. If you are looking for an agent who listens, who thinks for you, who cares, who solves problems and who is patient, knowledgeable and considerate, you came to the right place and met the right one - Dave Tapper. HE IS GOLD!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.0M in Pacifica, CA.
Very easy going realtor to work with. We were interested in buying a home, but did not have a drop dead date for completing the purchase. We did not feel pressured at all when work working with Dave. He was very honest about the homes that we viewed. It took a bit of time, but he found a home that fit 90% of our needs/desires. Not only did he find the home, but managed for us to place a bid with the owner prior to the home going up for sale. We did not have to compete with other buyer. Very advantageous for us and quite savvy of Dave. We would definitely use Dave again!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.25M in San Mateo Heights, San Mateo, CA.
Dave helped us secure our first home in a tough market in the Bay Area. Dave helped us stay positive throughout the whole process and his contacts and knowledge of the area were invaluable. I can honestly say I don't think we would have closed on the Home if Dave had not helped. Dave has also helped us after the close in finding gardeners locksmiths etc. I highly recommended Dave Tapper for any home sale or purchase.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Daly City, CA.
Dave Tapper is the "James Brown of Real Estate", the hardest working man in the business!! He lives and breathes real estate 7 days a week, and will go the extra mile to find you a home and/or sell your home. No matter what time of day or night I contacted him, he was ALWAYS available or got back to me very quickly. I am a fussy perfectionist and its not easy to meet my expectations much less exceed them, and Dave exceeded mine! He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, honest and is a tireless worker who is like the Energizer Bunny---he just won't stop going until the job is done. I would not hesitate to use him again and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a home.

Bought a home in 2013.
We worked with Dave over the course of two years. We were lucky to meet him at an open house. We looked for single family homes and he was always quick to respond and have our best interests in mind. He wanted to make sure our purchase was a great fit and his integrity was always evident. Finally, when we purchased a new construction condo Dave was there every step of the process.

When there were challenges he intervened. During negotiations he helped us get 33% more incentives than any other buyer ever had.

I recommend Dave with the highest regard. He looks out and truly cares about his clients. He is one of a kind in his profession. That is why he is a Presidential Elite agent for Coldell Burlingame.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $675K in Daly City, CA.
Dave has earned my highest recommendation for helping me and my wife find and close a deal on a perfect home. Honest, dependable, positive, straight forward, the list goes on. We screened a good number of reputable realtors. We did our homework. Most of them did pass the checklist but Dave connected with us on a personal level. Professional and funny, offered no false promises, gave us realistic expectations, shared a pool of knowledge and most importantly, exemplified good positive energy throughout the process. Anybody in the home buying business is either wanting to earn more or save more. Finding the median is the challenge. It took us a while to find Dave but knowing what we know now, I can say we're happy that we did.
