Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Petoskey, MI.
I choose Dave by chance which turned out to be a great fit. Dave is friendly, honest, knowledgeable and really works to meet the needs of his clients. Every step of the way and every question I had he was there with a response or a connection to help me out! I would and have recommended Dave to others looking to buy, sell or rent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Charlevoix, MI.
Dave worked with us while we were still serving a mission in Russia. He responded to our requests and kept us up to date on properties we were interested in seeing when we returned to the states. His work was very good and we would ask for his service again if we have any real estate needs.
Bought a Apartment home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Petoskey, MI.
There are not enough superlatives in the English language to adequately describe our experience with Dave. Knowledgeable, responsive, patient, thorough, are just a few that come to mind. We could not have asked for a better experience from start to finish.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Boyne City, MI.
Dave was great to work with. Easy to get along with right out of the gate and extremely responsive. He jumped through hoops from the first phone call to the very end of our purchase transaction. He continues to be a great resource for us in terms of local knowledge. Thanks Dave!
Dave was quick to answer my messages and I was impressed with his experience knowledge. I chose to go with a boutiuqe home owned agency as I find they are more in "tune" and easily communication to the seller. Dave managed to market and promote the listing property and communication was by email as there was a distance between us.
Thanking Dave and his support team on a job well done!!! PC
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Charlevoix, MI.
My husband Dan and I recently had the pleasure of working with Dave Carlson of Kidd & Leavy Real Estate. We were relocating from California to my husband's hometown of Charlevoix, MI. We originally met Dave on-line and his responsiveness and courteousness convinced us to choose him over other on-line realtor contacts. We definitely made the right choice. We met Dave for the first time when we flew out from California on a house-hunting trip. His pleasant, positive demeanor put us at ease right from the start. With only a three-day window to find a house, Dave arranged for us to see approximately twenty houses. He made the daunting task of finding a house on such short notice a fun experience. We found a great house and moved in a few weeks ago. Thank you Dave for all your great service and patience!
My wife and I needed a realtor to help us find a house remotely as we live in FL and wanted to buy a house in MI. We feel we were very fortunate to have chosen Dave Carlson. Not only did he handle the usual real estate transaction items professionally and flawlessly, Dave went over and beyond what we expected. Dave spent countless hours visiting properties, sending us photos and movies, doing research we could not possibly have done ourselves as well as always being there when we called with our endless questions. We highly recommend Dave if you want a knowledgeable professional that knows the area and will happily go the extra mile (or miles!) for you.
