Showed home in 2014 in West Marion, Marion, NC 28752.
Realator was pushy and overbearing. When problems arose he did not communicate as our advocate. Sent very rude emails after we backed out of buying a home with him. Would not recommend. Very disrespectful along with his business associate.
Response from David on 07/10/2014
It is unfortunate when a potential home purchase falls to pieces. I can only say that I have always treated my clients with respect and professionalism and I have always advocated strongly for my clients. Negotiating is one of my strengths. Obviously, this individual is upset that the cards didn't fall in her favor. I hope that one day she succeeds in purchasing her first home and has learned from this experience.

My wife Kathy and I purchased a home in Lake Lure in 2012 with the help of David and Denise. Both were very responsive and professional throughout the entire process. Despite some difficult negotiations, David and Denise were careful to always keep our best interest in mind. I highly recommend anyone looking at the beautiful Lake Lure area to at least give David a call.
We could not have had a better experience searching for land and finding what we wanted, than we had with David Walsh and the NC Dream Land team. They spent the time with us that we needed getting to know the area and helping us to develop the details of what we wanted. Once we found our 'perfect' lot, they negotiated strongly on our behalf.
David and Denise are great to work with--straightforward, honest, and thorough.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Lake Lure, NC.
Nancy and I contacted David & Denise w/ our needs and wants of the type of house we were looking for. Several attempts were close. Their attention and knowledge of the market, along with our wishes, paid off. We love the house they found for us. Very nice people and really good realitors.
I believe I found agents that are honest, trustworthy, returns calls/emails fast, and are experienced in both David Walsh and Denise Otto. They know how to listen and serve a buyer well. My wife and I bought a house in Fairview Forest and enjoyed having them on our side of the transaction. I fully recommend them.
We were very pleased with our time with David. He probably doesn't have many clients over seventy but was very kind and patient with us. We looked at many, many cabins and I'm sure he wondered if the old folks would ever be satisfied. We finally did decide and he was very helpful in suggesting locals who might be available.
We are very happy to recommend David and fully intend to do so if the opportunity arises.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Lake Lure, NC.
I bought a cabin in Lake Lure through David and Denise's firm. They were extremely professional and very knowledgeable with the area. Both he and Denise patiently showed me several properties before I made my decision. I never felt pressured at any time and in fact, they helped me negotiate and secure a lower price for my cabin. I have made many subsequent calls to their office with inquiries about other properties and have always been well received by them. I do plan on listing my cabin in their rental program as well. I HIGHLY recommend their company!
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with David Walsh as a realtor and a rental agent. Dealing with David and his team has been a pleasureable experience outlining all of the guidelines, as well as references for ongoing projects on our cabin.
David, Denise and Penny are extremely honest and reliable. Being a remote owner the above ingredients are crucial.
I highly recommend David and his team to everyone that is interested in purchasing or leasing a property in Lake Lure, NC.
