Bought a home in 2013.

We were buying a condo in FL from PA. David was very helpful showing many properties to our liason in FL. Then when we setteled on a condo he set up signing via the internet thru a secure site (dotloop). He made the paper signing process easier in that we could sign morning, noon or night. We did not have to drive to an office, take off work and sign during our work hours. Every question we sent David was answered in a timely manner. David was very accessible and most of all approachable. Even after the sale David was helpful when we still had questions. We would recommend David because he is the consumate professional and a great communicator. Lee and Gary Mitchell  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Belleair Beach, FL.

My husband and I interviewed three realtors when we were ready to place our condo on the market once again in early 2013. We were not willing to accept a low-ball approach in as much as our condo was a corner unit on third floor (top floor of condo) and a beach front unit with balcony. David Bates was thorough in his presentation with details about the market at that point and projections on how it was moving. He was candid about the good and bad of the market in the first quarter but did not preach doom and gloom. He indicated he would actively promote the condo and while not promising the sky, said he was confident he could find us a buyer who would be acceptable to our price range. After some deliberation on our part and after several follow-up calls for additional information, we decided David Bates was the person we wanted to work with and list the condo through his Keller Williams office in Largo. David was prompt in preparing the documents before we headed north in early April and he was in frequent contact with us via email and phone after we returned home to Drexel Hill, Pa.. We initially set the asking price at $359,000 and held that price through several open houses and limited interest. We knew we might have to lower the price once people expressed fact that the unit would need considerable updating --which we readily expressed, but we were not in s big hurry and decided we would not give it away like two other owners in the building had done in the previous 12 months. David was patient and most helpful in guiding us through the decision to lower the price and when we had the initial offer he counseled us as to the pros and cons of holding out for the exact amount or accepting the offer. When the intial contract was cancelled when one of two parties in the transaction pulled out, David Bates went back to work to seek a new prospect and to again advise us when we received a firm offer. While we did not get what we felt the unit is worth, we are happy with the negotiated sale price thanks to David's willingness to present our counter offer which was accepted. David Bates made it a smooth process even though we were in Pennsylvania until the week of the closing when we flew to Flordia to clear out the condo and sign the documents in advance of the official closing date. By the time the closing was completed we were on our way back to Maine for the rest of our summer vacation.. The decision to have David Bates as our realtor was a double blessing thanks to his very knowledgeable and helpfulk wife who was a Godsend during the packing up of the condo and getting things ready to ship north. She had many ideas and worked to find an outlet for the good items which would help people in need. She contacted the Veterans Service Agency which took a large amount of household items we were not taking north. Those items which were not acceptable for Veterans Service, we turned over to Got Junk and we were able to pack up and catch our plane on time. David Bates treated us like we were his only client and he never failed to return our calls and patiently answered numerous questions each step of the way, We made a perfect choice from day one.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Seminole, FL.

We selected David Bates for 3 reasons... His knowledge of the market, His Marketing plan and implementation of the plan, and his integrity. We needed to get as much as we could for our home. Most of the realtors said you have it priced too high...they just wanted to make a quick buck. David laid out a plan that we stuck with and, in the end, we were able to get the price that we wanted. His follow up with everything( the buyers lender etc) right until the closing was most impressive. He pays attention to detail...He earns every penny of his commission. In our opinion there is no better realtor in Pinellas county Florida....Thank you David & Valerie  More Less
