What a pleasure and priviledge to work with David. We live on the East Coast but were interested in securing a starter second home in the Bay Area since our son and his family are relocating there. Since we had no contacts in the area to refer a real estate agent, I looked on the internet and David's name popped up. It was our lucky day! I contacted David based on reviews written by clients who were very pleased with the help and guidance he had provided them in their searches for properties. David and I immediately developed a rapport via email and phone conversations and we agreed we would travel to the Bay Area to start preliminary conversations with a loan officer and visit various neighborhoods to begin to focus on what areas were of interest to us. Based on criteria I shared with David, he provided listings for our review prior to our leaving for the west coast. Based on our feedback, he modified the listings and provided suggestions based on his continual review of the multiple listings. Upon our arrival as arranged by David, we met with a loan officer who was able within a few hours to get us prequalified for financing. Understanding our limited time, David dedicated several entire days to work with us. Though we did not anticipate locating a property during this trip, David showed us a varieity of properties and was always open to our suggestions, questions, likes, dislikes, etc. Within a few days, he helped us find a property that met our criteria. We had arrived in the Bay Area on a Tuesday and by Friday evening, our bid was accepted on a townhouse. I honestly do not believe this would have been possible without David's guidance, suggestions, interest in our situation, and his referral to the loan officer. Within a timespan of less than 4 weeks we found a property, secured funding, and closed on a property. David was always right there every step of the way. I highly recommend David. He is very professional, easy to work with, ambiable, understanding, and an all around great guy. Should we ever decide in the future to expand beyond a second home to a permanent residence in the Bay Area, David will be the first person we call. David is very professional, easy to work with, amiable, understanding, and an all around great guy. VHK

David Early proved himself to be an exceptionally knowledgeable, dedicated, honest and caring real estate agent. He went above and beyond his role as an agent to help us thorough the big and small challenges of purchasing our home. He even helped us with problems that came up after we had finalized our deal. David kept us informed throughout the process and explained all our options clearly. He was never pushy or impatient. He was attentive to all our questions and concerns. My husband and I felt supported knowing David did everything to make our deal work. If you want a real estate agent who is knowledgeable, patient, and committed, I would strongly recommend David Early. We have already recommended him to other family members.
Showed home in 2013 in Broderick, West Sacramento, CA 95605.
I was very impressed with my interaction with David Earley. David is intelligent, thoughtful, and very responsive. David followed-up on all his commitments during my process and was very thoughtful about what houses he sent me for review (most agents just send a dump of MLS listings).
What I really like about David was his level of knowledge of the Bay Area and his responsiveness to both email and phone.
All around superb agent, will definitely use David in the future on both the buy and sell side.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Las Palmas, Oakland, CA.
The first time I met David, I immediately felt comfortable with his professionalism and warm demeanor. He displayed a natural confidence and an abundance of knowledge, and it was at that point I decided that we'd work with him to buy our first home provided our pre-qualify process went smoothly.
Once my wife and I got qualified for a loan, we called David and immediately started a serious search. He guided us toward the neighborhoods that have shown a consistent upward trend in home values and fit our limited budget, and was really good about providing all the pertinent information, and then stepping back to let us make a decision that was in our best interest.
Each home we looked at, David provided an honest and informed assessment in regard to the home itself and the neighborhood, and was able to give us a real dollar amount of what he thought the house would eventually sell for, regardless of list price.
The first house we offered on we received a counter, but eventually lost out, and the second house we offered on, we were able to negotiate a deal and have since moved into.
After we were in contract on the home we bought, there were some bumps in the road that David helped navigate smoothly. We wound up getting the house for LESS than we offered on it, and so far, couldn't be happier with our choice.
Between the homes that David showed us, and the ones we found on Zillow, we were able to find the right fit for ourselves in a little over two months.
I have already recommended David to a co-worker who was searching for over a year with another agent. In a month and a half with David, he was in contract and has since closed.
David Earley is a true professional, works hard to support his family, and is happy to go the extra mile to make sure to get you in the house that you choose. We WILL work with him again once we're ready to upgrade to a larger home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Castro Valley, CA.
David and his team spent close to 4 months helping us look for a house. We put four offers and the last one was the house we bought. David was very helpful in the search process. He is truly a knowledgeable RE professional. He is very intelligent and patient with a pleasant personality, nothing seems to bother him! and he is very approachable and easy to talk to. His knowledge of RE is very impressive. David surprised us with his knowledge in so many areas, home improvement, design and construction, gardening, landscaping, and many other areas. Each week we learned a lot of stuff about features of homes and their potential for upgrade as he showed us houses. We actually enjoyed talking to him and in several situations he gave us great advice. David is very organized and accurate and pays attention to details. Where we had to speak to seller agents or home owners his friendly attitude and warm personality made it a breeze, we felt comfortable to have him represent us. David and his partner listened to our needs and made adjustments each week. It was a long and exhausting search but they didn't give up, they alternated each week and kept showing us more homes with positive and friendly attitude. During the last offer they worked closely with the seller agent and the escrow and they worked out few issues for us. They helped us find the right resources for repairs after the closing, they continued to stay in touch long after the purchase and each time we had a question they replied immediately. Overall we are very happy with David's professional work and would highly recommend him to any of our friends anytime.
If you are in search of a patient, personable, and intelligent realtor who really knows the housing market, David is THE realtor. I wouldn't trust any other person and will 100% go back to him if I were to look for another house. David is really amazing! He is calm and composed but fun at the same time.
My fiance and I had been looking a home for over a year and felt very discouraged in a daunting, highly competitive market. Then we were recommend to David and he revitalized our energy and hopes that we will find just the right house for us. He delivered and made it happen in just a sort few weeks! We love our house!
Before and during the search, he would thoughtfully listen to our comments and feedback about what we were looking for. He would bring to light the positives and negatives of the houses we see, elements for which we would not have known about if he didn't point it out. Not only that, but if there was something we didn't like or wanted to change abou the house, we welcomed his suggestions, as he has done a lot of home projects himself.
He was always on top of the emails, texts,and phone calls. He's was always accessible and would answer my questions quickly. David made the paperwork process a breeze. For me, the electronic signing option made writing the offers so much more easier.
I couldn't have asked for a better realtor than David. We are so glad to have found him and are so happy with our new house!
David helped me sell my home of 12 years. After marketing and two open houses we received multiple offers and were in contract. The buyer's inspector found problems with my foundation. The buyer's were not from this area so David found an unbiased structural engineer and everyone agreed with the inspector and then later he found multiple contractors to give bids. David held the sell together with excellent negotiations; keeping both me and the buyers (via their agents) informed and enthusiastic about the situation. Besides being available, he anticipates questions within our conversations and explains the ongoing process. David was continually helpful & optimistic with me during a potentially stressful sale and at the same time always honest. I couldn't have had a better agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Felton, CA.
I don't even know where to start. We were looking for a house to buy everywhere. anywhere my mom and I would have a house that we would like to live in: Oakland, Alameda, Castro Valley, San Leandro, Hayward, Newark, Fremont. Not just these East Bay cities but even Pacifica, Daly City, and even all the way in Santa Cruz area! Of course we started off in Oakland and that's how I got to find David on Zillow. I've called many realtors before to find the one that would stick with us(especially we were extremely picky with our house choices), but we could not find anyone as PATIENT, FRIENDLY, FAMILY-LIKE, KIND, GENEROUS, NICE, CHARMING, ENTHUSIASTIC, OPTIMISTIC, ETC AS DAVID EARLEY!
We looked for houses for about three months every single day, going to open houses every single weekend and David showing us so many houses almost everyday of the weekdays. Without David, we probably wouldn't have found the house that we just bought few weeks ago(probably took years to find the right one). We ended up buying a house in Felton and David was so dedicated in coming all the way from east bay to show us the house and even educate us everytime we looked at houses. Because of David, we learned so much about houses, construction stuff, etc...he was almost like a professor to us and educated us so well that we are almost like a professional realtors now!
There was also one house in Oakland that we were in contract with and we knew that we wouldn't be able to get our faith deposit back after the contingency was removed. However, we just really could not buy that house in many reasons so we were sad that we wouldn't be getting our deposit back. But guess what?! this guy kept a very good relationship with the listing agent and in the end, got our deposit back like a superhero.
We couldn't believe it at first.
Even after finished with the contract and purchasing the home, I feel like David is our family/friend and we still keep in touch. He is fun and charming to hang out with and spend time with.
we were always, always so thankful and words cannot describe of how we are grateful to have met David in our lives.
I would not recommend anyone else but David Earley as a professional realtor to anyone.
DAVID EARLEY IS THE BEST REALTOR I'VE EVER MET IN MY LIFE !
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Millsmont, Oakland, CA.
David helped us with the purchase of a home in Oakland, and was brought in by another agent (who was helping us with the sale of our previous home) because our other agent did not know Oakland well. David was a fantastic agent...he was very familiar with the neighborhoods we were looking in, and helped guide us to properties that met the criteria we had set out for him. He seemed to know exactly what we were seeking (during our first meeting, he drew on a map neighborhoods we thought would be good for us...and it matched nearly street by street the map we had drawn ourselves) and was able to get us a house that met all of our criteria after only 1 week of looking. He knew the neighborhoods, knew what it took to win an offer in the market, and got us exactly what we wanted, on time and in budget. If this was an ebay review, he would get an A+++++++
