More About Me

My Selling Philosphy

Integrity and communication form the basis of how I do business. As every person is unique, I will actively listen to your needs and work with you to have the most positive and successful experience possible.

Voted Most Ethical Realtor by East Bay Express readers, I take my commitment to you seriously.  As a real estate consultant, my job is to help you with your real estate needs regardless of whether nor not that leads to a sale. By keeping my priorities to my clients in the forefront of everything I do, I keep my clients coming back year after year and recommending me to others.

Sellers, I will give you the information you need to sell your home for the best possible price under the best possible conditions. I will market your home in local newspapers and online, where prospective buyers can take virtual tours of your property.

Buyers, we will work closely together to find the home that you have envisioned. I will keep you well informed as to the houses coming on the market, providing you with photos and statistics delivered straight to you via email or fax.

I service primarily the following areas: Berkeley, Oakland, Albany, Kensington, Piedmont, El Cerrito, Alameda, Lamorinda, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Richmond, El Sobrante.

Testimonials

"Working with Dave was such a pleasure, and we are just thrilled with the outcome! Dave is very friendly and personable, very professional, and always available. He is very knowledgeable in his field, which made us feel very comfortable that we were getting all of the information we needed. He was responsive to all of our needs, and facilitated our successful purchase of a wonderful home, which is not an easy task in the Bay Area! After working with a number of less informed and less responsive agents without success, we were thrilled to find and Dave! We would recommend him to anyone!" - Nina and David O., Oakland, CA

"When I sold my condo in Berkeley, Dave spared no effort in making it more saleable, got a very good deal on high-quality staging, and made the home owners’ association perform routine maintenance it had gotten behind on. I was pleased to receive a pre-emptive offer of $70,000 above what I thought the condo would sell for. All through it, Dave remained encouraging, devoted a huge amount of time and effort to me, was extremely persistent and thorough, and made the whole process work incredibly smoothly. I found Dave to be intelligent, responsible, hardworking, tactful, and exceptionally knowledgeable of the Berkeley housing market. I recommend him without reservation." - Nona K., Berkeley, CA

"I am a Real Estate agent in San Diego. In the 3 years that we have owned our property in Berkeley, I have received postcards/letters from various agents. In the past I’ve called them and was never terribly impressed with the information I got. Then Dave walked into the picture. I called Dave and his professionalism and his overall “can do” attitude has clearly made the difference in this transaction. We closed escrow and we made a healthy profit and more importantly - we had the pleasure of working with Dave. If I have any clients who will be moving to the area - I will certainly refer them his way." -Joanne G., San Diego, CA
