Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Woodstock, GA.
My husband and I were on the fence about buying a new home for a few years. We finally decided that we would just start looking but we were not in any rush. We contacted David about a property he had listed and as we started discussing where we were in the process, he offered to send us some listings that met our criteria. He sent over a list of over 20 properties within the hour and we then narrowed it down to 5-6 properties that we wanted to visit. We met with David around 5pm on a Friday evening. David has the ability to listen to your wants, needs and tastes so that he can gather only the best possible properties and will not waste your time looking a properties that do not match your criteria. After looking at 4 properties, we found THE ONE! We just knew it was the home for us. David in no way tried to pressure us and actually tried to talk us into looking at another house just to be on the safe side. We ended up in his office putting together an offer that very evening at 11pm! This may sound crazy to some people, but David is so patient and communicates everything so well that there was no reason to be nervous at all! We then had to focus on selling our current home that we had lived in for over 12 years! We were a little apprehensive about selling our home and very nervous about whether or not we would be able to make a profit in today’s market. David took the time to sit down with us and educate us not only on our home, but the trends of the current real estate market and what impact it had on our home. He took the time to walk through our home and offer his expert advice on all aspects of listing our home including staging, advertizing and listing price. By the time he left we felt very confident that our home would sell for the very best possible price; and we were NOT disappointed. David listed our home on a Wednesday evening. We had multiple offers and a signed, binding contract before the weekend was over!! To summarize, David found us our dream home and SOLD our current home in just over a WEEK! We ended up closing on both homes and moving into the home of our dreams within 30 days! Not only is David an incredible realtor, he is very genuine person. When he takes you on as a client, he gives 110% to you and makes you feel as though you are his only client! His communication and people skills went above and beyond all of my expectations. I consider David not only my realtor for life, but also a true friend. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home. You will not be disappointed!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed working with you guys. You were funny, you were kind. (how could I not love you when you brought me Starbucks to the first house I showed you?) Thank you so much. Seriously, thank you for taking the time to review me. And, reading it, I am just very, very touched.

Bought a home in 2013.
David not only guided us in the house buying experience but also assisted in the sale of our home of 26 years. The whole experience from start to finish took about 3 weeks. He is very knowledgable in his field and knows how to read people. We are very pleased with the outcome and strongly recommend David for your home buy/sale experience :0)

Thank you so much! Heck, you guys have already referred me two of your friends, so I sincerely appreciate that. Thank you for taking the time to review me! I hope you are enjoying that house and, other than the fact that it is 'too big', it has been wonderful.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Lawrenceville, GA.
David was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls from day one. He also went out of his way with creative and out of the box approaches to finding us the perfect home for our growing family. I truly believe that he always had our best interest in mind and was a fantastic advocate for us during our first home purchase. I will most certainly be contacting David again in the future for any home buying/selling needs.

I am so happy that we could FINALLY get this home for you guys! It only took two months, four highest and best offers, one while you were in labor and one while my daughter was at the ER. Piece of cake. Thank you SO much for taking the time to review me and I am so happy that we were able to get you into that home!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Lawrenceville, GA.
When I initially contact Mr. Blanton, I had never sold a home before and was very unsure of the process. He was very patient with me; explaining everything – often times over and over. He was always available; answering my phone calls, returning calls immediately and actually did everything, except the closing at my home. I did not have to meet him anywhere to sign papers or to have meetings – he always came to me. Also to his credit, I was going through a divorce during the sale of my home, so he did double duty. After meeting with me, he would meet with my soon to be ex husband to go over everything a second time – he never complained!!!

Within 24 hours of putting my house on the market, we had three offers over asking price and were under contract within 3 days. He flooded the market with my listing and guided me to the best choice regarding the buyer. It was 28 days from the time we listed the property until we closed – which I have been told is unheard of.

I was very lucky to have happened upon David and his staff. He is companionate, dedicated and knowledgeable. I have recommended him to several friends (one will actually close on the sale of her house today) and will defiantly use him in the near future when I am looking to purchase my next home.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review me! I sincerely appreciate you doing that. I am glad we could get you moved into the next phase of your life. I know it was a bittersweet closing. I was glad that I could make it as smooth as possible. Well, right up until the other agent was yelling at me at the closing table. It is funny how often other agents forget that we are supposed to be working for our clients, not each other.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Winder, GA.
What can I say about David? He went above and beyond any expectation I had. Simply put, I would have never gotten the house I did for the price I did if not for him. He not only did that but put up with my fickle nature for 2 months. LOL. Thanks, buddy!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Cumming, GA.
David is awesome to work with. He knows the area very well. He is extremely responsive, always took my calls and answered my emails and txts. He truly cares that you are being taken care of. I relocated from NJ to GA and without him helping me every bit of the way, it would have been a nightmare.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Oakwood, GA.
David was extremely helpful.....We were very picky buyers & he never pressured us to look at a house outside of our parameters or place an offer... he truly wants his buyers to be happy and will go that extra mile to make sure you are satisfied! My experience with realtors was not the best at all (3 prior homes).......David Blanton is a great realtor! Made it so much nicer shopping for a home in a difficult situation. Highly recommended.

You guys were awesome! I know it was so frustrating to find inspection issues with the first two homes. But, luckily, the third time was the charm. And, how awesome to get a home way below appraised value and one that was move in ready. In the end, things worked out marvelously! Thank you so much for taking the time to review me! And, thank you for trusting me to help you find just the right home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Smyrna, GA.
As a first time home buyer, my husband and I were very naive and cautious in the home buying process. David came highly recommended to us and we could not be more pleased with our experience. We were under a time crunch to find and purchase a home, and David made himself available at our convenience. He is friendly, extremely helpful, and a fantastic negotiator. I would highly recommend David and will definitely use him again when selling and/or purchasing a home.
