Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $675K in Sunnyside, San Francisco, CA.
David was all we could ask for in an agent - we would whole-heartedly recommend him to any friend. He helped us successfully navigate the SF real estate market and had invaluable insights about neighborhoods, the real estate process, and each house we looked at. He quickly developed a good intuition for what we were looking for, and the houses he recommended we look at were consistently right up our alley. Aside from his incredible knowledge and experience, professionalism, and great sense of humor (after all, if you can't have a good laugh once in a while during the home buying process you are in trouble), what we appreciated most about David was that he is a great person. Choose him as your agent and you won't regret it.

Sold a home in 2013.
David did a very good job helping us purchasing a property while we were oversea. He is very professional and was able to handle some unexpected situations very well during the process, looking over all details all the time. We would highly recommend him as a real estate agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Parnassus - Ashbury, San Francisco, CA.
David is our families long time, trusted confident, friend and expert real estate agent. He diligently worked with us to find a home over a year ago that fits our family size and location desires. He listened to our needs and requests, continually researched and produced real estate options that best met our criteria and budget. He is proactive and never required redirection. Every day there was clear and open communication on new opporutnities for us to review. After our initial property was discovered David served as an invaluable resource to guide us through financing, understanding the requirements, helping us prepare for our loan qualification, updating the property for appraisal, and providing referrals for any considered remodel. His expertise goes far beyond real estate and would be an effective and successful asset to anyone's interest in home purchases or any other process associated.

Bought a home in 2012.
David spent the better part of 7 months and more than 10 offers later to finally find my wife and I a home. Given our lower budget and lower down payment needless to say we were in the interesting part of real estate in the San Francisco City area. Short Sales, Bank Owned, HUD owned, Renter occupied, and the list goes on and on. Regardless David treated us like we were buying a place at the top of the hill in Pacific Heights. He treated every property that we were interested in like it was the first offer. He would in great detail walk me through all the info and walk me through the pros and cons and the upsides and potential gotchas in buying the property. In the end David was the key person in finding my wife and I a property that met all of our needs and he then really impressed us when he walked us through every step of the the closing and his attention to detail was just incredible. I do not think we could have pulled off owning a great property in San Francisco without him. I will recommend him to anyone I know is looking to buy property in San Francisco.

Bought a home in 2013.
It's a little embarrassing to say that we can't assign fewer than five stars to any aspect of our experience with David Ames. He made the whole process interesting, pleasant and as easy as it probably could have been. His communication skills are absolutely outstanding; he knows the City; and as a buyers' and sellers' agent he knows the ins and outs of putting together a good offer. We couldn't recommend him more highly.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $850K in Bernal Heights, San Francisco, CA.
David has helped in purchasing two homes and selling one. He is incredibly insightful and professional. David consistently sets realistic expectations and provides expertise based on his extensive knowledge of the market. Throughout each transaction, we were comfortable with David's counsel and confident that he was advocating for our best interest. David exceeded our expectations in his representation and set a high bar.We have bought and sold homes in other markets (Atlanta, Philadelphia) and did not have similar experiences with our agents. David served as a trusted advisor on all these transactions and continues to do so as we check in periodically for an update on the market and our investment. We fully intend to work with David again for any future real estate needs.

We have concluded two transactions thru David and he did an excellent job in both cases. He is extremely detailed and communicates in a timely fashion. We have nothing but the highest regard for his professional skills and would not hesitate to use him again.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2004 for approximately $950K in Mission, San Francisco, CA.
David not only sold my home for the best price, but more importantly to me, found the perfect new home. David listened to my needs and my wish list resulting in finding my new home in just 3 showings. David made both the selling and buying experience a pleasure.

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1.525M in Inner Sunset, San Francisco, CA.
Dave helped us buy 2 houses and sell 1. We never would have found the 2 houses we ultimately ended up buying without him. He understand our needs perfectly, and when a house presented itself, he made sure we saw it. If and when we sell the house we are currently in, we will work with Dave again in a heartbeat.
