Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Wexford, PA.
After casually looking at houses online, my husband and I decided to click to make an appointment to view one. We clicked on Dave's name and not even 1 minute later, my husband's phone rang. When he hung up, we couldn't believe how quickly Dave responded and were very impressed and decided to meet him and Melissa to let them show us the house. And from that moment on, Dave continued to impress us every step of the way until we finally owned our dream house. On that first meeting, we could not believe the details Dave had for us about not just the house we requested to see, but also similar houses in the area, which he also took us to see. Any time we wanted to view a house, he made himself available and made it happen. When issues arose with the sellers of the first house we thought we wanted, Dave gave us honest and excellent advice and was supportive of our decision to keep looking. He rearranged his schedule so that we could go out the next day, and the very next house we saw ended up being our dream house.

During the time we were under contract, Dave raised the bar even higher, which we didn't think was possible. He was able to address any concern we had and was able to negotiate any request of ours with the sellers to make it happen. Every person he recommended to us was top-notch and lived up to the standards that he demonstrated in his own work. And when the mortgage company we used (not recommended by Dave) really screwed up and delayed our closing multiple times, Dave went above and beyond to keep us and the sellers informed and to stay on top of the mortgage company to do what they were supposed to do. He was the only thing that kept us sane while our closing kept being delayed by the mortgage company.

If you are planning to buy or sell, the very best decision you could make is to let Dave help you with the process. He will impress you every step of the way and lead you to your new home!

Dave impressed me and my husband from the beginning. We had the notion to look around a house and he was the seller's agent. I was apprehensive that we would be given the hard sell and be in an awkward situation if we didn't like the house. Dave was both gracious and perceptive. He seemed to know before we did that that house wasn't right for us. Once we arrived at that realization, he firmly agreed, and offered to meet with us for a consultation that oriented us in the house-buying process and helped to clarify our goals and expectations. It suited us that Dave uses his website and cell phone.. not a fax machine! He was always available when we needed him. The same is true of the team that he introduced us to: the housing inspector and mortgage broker that he recommended outshone others we interacted with. Despite the modest price point we bought at, the patience and wisdom Dave shared with us helped us get the perfect home. We thoroughly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Pittsburgh, PA.
Dave was not only super-knowledgeable about the area, he was funny and very patient. As first time home-buyers, my wife and I (myself in particular) had tons of questions and Dave was able to answer every one!

I would recommend him and Melissa to anyone seeking a home to buy or sell. Just a great, great team of people to work with!

We found Dave through Zillow, impressed with his high marks. I can say that we were not disappointed.

Dave is as thorough as I could imagine a real estate agent could be. He has a firm understanding of the region, the trends, and how our negotiations would be impacted by those things. He is exceptionally detail-oriented and takes plenty of time to explain all details in a personal, comfortable way.

Finally, it's important to note that Dave is very technology-focused and uses systems to make the process easier. As someone who uses many communication technologies, it was nice to be able to communicate with Dave in convenient ways.

I could not recommend Dave more highly (and have already referred him).

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Baden, PA.
Mr. Tumpa is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and reliable real estate agent. My experience with him was no short of 5 stars from the beginning of the process up unto the very end. He arrived at my house with all of his homework done and was able to explain in great detail the market, the houses currently up for sale and the houses that had recently been sold in my area, thus leaving no questions unanswered. He was extremely helpful when the time came to decide the listing price, being sensative to our needs, but knowing the market enough to make suggestions. He was extremely professional in speaking with potential buyers, very reliable with returning phone calls and was able to answer questions easily. He is a top notch agent that I would (and will) recommend highly.

See that house you're looking at and this little box here, fill out the form for Dave Tumpa. That's exactly what I did, right here from Zillow and now 2 months later what began as a casual "let me check out that house in person" turned into me owning my dream home. And I couldn't have done it without Dave, not at all. I filled out the form on a Sunday night and the phone rang less than 30 minutes later, he picked up the ball right there and never dropped it once through the whole process. This is the second home I've bought and let me tell you I wish I'd been with Dave the first time too. While he's intelligent, easy to be with and completely up to date on real-estate technology what impressed me the most was his good old-fashioned attention, attention to me the buyer, attention to every detail and attention to every line on every form. He's upfront, honest to a fault (a realtor!) and takes his job seriously. You will always feel like a priority and he never pressures you, in fact when I wanted to make an offer, he suggested I sleep on it rather than zipping me back to his office at that moment, in such a fast game it's so nice to be given room to breathe. Obviously, I can't say enough good things and trust me once you use Dave Tumpa you will be just as effusive, he's truly one in a million and we are all so lucky he's here in Pittsburgh for us.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $250K in Freedom, PA.
Dave was great! We met him a year prior to buying our house when he showed us a place we found online. We realized then that we weren't ready to buy but never forgot about Dave. We rented from 2 different realty companies before buying but no agent stood out like he did when it came time for us to make that big purchase! We think the world of him and would recommend him to anyone and everyone we meet. Thanks Dave! We love our home!
