I first met Dave by happenstance as he was showing a house I had interest in when I first began my home search, and I was linked to him when I inquired about the house first through Zillow. I was immediately impressed with his attitude and demeanor at our first showing and decided to let him show me a few other listings as well. It took almost a year and about 15 contracts before I was able to secure my dream house. Through it all Dave remained positive and patient. When I was going crazy and thought I would never find a home, Dave talked me off the ledge and found some more properties for me to look at. When I was desperate and wanting to bid on anything just to get a house, he was adamant that I had to love it before signing on the dotted line. It wasn't just about making the deal and moving on, it was about finding the right place for me and my wants and needs. While in the moment it was frustrating that I wasn't "winning" the bids, Dave was compassionate, but always said, "then that one just wasn't meant to be, but we will find the one that is!" He was right! In retrospect, I am so glad that other houses fell through and I wound up with the house I truly love. In fact, it was a house I loved for almost all of that entire year of searching. It remained on the market and Dave would revisit it every couple of months to see if the owner would meet our price, low and behold eventually his persistence and ability to make a deal won out. I not only got the house I really wanted, I got it at a wonderful price. If I ever decide to leave this place (which right now I cannot even imagine!) or if I have any other home buying needs and/or friends with such needs Dave Zembala will be my first call.
