Bought a home in 2014.

David is the best! His responsiveness and local knowledge of the Santa Barbara market, which can be very difficult at times, was essential in our search for the perfect home for our family. He referred us to several loan agents and inspectors which made the entire process very easy.

We were actively looking in the Santa Barbara area for over a year and we made offers on a few homes, which were outbid by cash offers. David was supportive and never missed a showing or appointment. We felt as though David had our best interests in mind and we trusted his advice. He even helped negotiate several credits from the sellers and other interested parties.

I have referred friends to David and they've all had great experiences. I would definitely recommend David to anyone looking for a home in the Santa Barbara/Ventura area.

Bought a home in 2014.

David was fantastic to work with! He was very patient with us through our year (plus) long journey of trying to decide what we wanted in a home. He was always available for questions, but never put any pressure on us to rush the process. When we were finally ready to get serious, he made the buying process so easy and helped us through each step, including quickly answering emails while he was away on vacation. He is very knowledgeable on the Santa Barbara real estate market and knows a lot about each neighborhood. We trusted and relied on his judgment throughout the whole process. I'd highly recommend using David as your agent!

Bought a home in 2014.

Very professional and knowledgeable in his field. Quickly responds to any inquiries you may have. David used his networking skills to find a very desirable home for me prior to its listing. Also, just the nicest guy you can ever work with. Genuinely cares for his clients. I will recommend him to all my family and friends.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Westside, Santa Barbara, CA.

David is such a pleasure to work with. He was calm and patient with me while guiding me through all the steps of finding and purchasing my first home. I knew I could count on David to represent my interests throughout all steps in the transaction. He was very professional, responsive and helpful with both the tactical and emotional pieces of negotiating and being in escrow.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.3M in Bel Air, Santa Barbara, CA.

We've interacted with quite a few realtors over the years here in Santa Barbara and elsewhere. Hands down, David Kim is the best. Seems like every time we ran into other agents at open houses and mentioned that we were working with him, they immediately smiled and said he was among the finest. Don't let his age fool you. He's as knowledgeable, polished, and professional as they come, a genuinely nice person who was always willing to help us us out with whatever nervous requests we made. In the end, we got the house we wanted in an extremely competitive market, in no small part due to his determination and skill.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.0M in East San Roque, Santa Barbara, CA.

David helped us buy our first home in Santa Barbara and he was just wonderful to work with. So wonderful, in fact, that the day we closed and got our keys, my boyfriend sent me a quick text (only half joking) that summed up our experience: "Just got the keys and said a final goodbye to David. I feel empty inside!"

See, we were having so much fun spending time with him looking at homes that we were both a little upset to finally find the one we bought and now live in, because it meant an end to our time working with him.

All the other reviews are correct: he was patient, easygoing, and made the process as smooth as possible. For those of you who prefer not to keep thousands of papers around, he is also very good at getting you things in digital form. As a bonus and because no one else has mentioned it, I will also tell you that he is a sharp dresser and wears a slim knit tie like nobody's business.

We are so grateful to have found him!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.0M in East San Roque, Santa Barbara, CA.

David was sensitive to our needs, and really took the time to go the extra mile when needed. He was always helpful, always on time, and seemed very plugged in to get us the inside information. He helped us put together an offer while we were out of the state, and always followed up whenever there was an issue or area of uncertainty for us. I would absolutely recommend David to everyone and would work with him again in a second. His energy and dedication really stand out.

Bought a home in 2014.

David made our first home buying process smooth and stress free. From the time we started our search to till we finally closed, David was always available to answer all our questions and guided us towards making the right decision. He has a great understanding of the Santa Barbara Real estate market and is very well connected. He always insisted that we take our time in making our decision and was very patient with us. We never felt rushed. Even after we bought the home he has been helping us at every step making sure we get the best service from vendors. He is dedicated, very professional and always answers all our queries with a smile. We highly recommend him.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $750K in North State, Santa Barbara, CA.

We were a first-time homebuyer, and David made our first home buying process simple and stress-free. We had many novice questions, and David answered all of them clearly (with smile). David is well-connected in the Santa Barbara community and has great knowledge about real estate in the area. He helped us with all steps of home buying process from searching to closing. He replies to our emails very promptly. He still follows up with us to find out if we need anything. We highly recommend David.

Bought a home in 2013.

David has great people skills and an impressive understanding of the Santa Barbara real estate market. We worked with him for eight months to find just the right home for our family in Santa Barbara. He went above and beyond to help us throughout the sale, inspections and closing period. He is extremely patient, an attentive listener and works very hard to find the right property for your needs and budget. We would use him again in a heartbeat.
