I will provide you with my highest level of personal service and professional representation. That's a given! It is also true of many Realtors. What sets me apart is my dedication to providing you with all the information you need to make the right decisions.
The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy buyers and sellers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. It's always nice to be appreciated!
Let's be realistic. Any realtor can help you to buy or sell a property. Before I met Dave, I had worked with another realtor who tried to panic me into buying a property that I really liked...playing on my fear that I would lose my dream home if I put the purchase subject to selling my current property. As you could well imagine, after sleepless nights, and the realization that my realtor could care less about my financial wellbeing, I walked away. This is when I found Dave. Having met my share of realtors over the years, I have come to appreciate the level of service that Dave brings to the table. He worked with me to put together a solid offer, all the while working diligently to sell the place that I've called home for years. No panic, no sleepless nights, no regrets... Having settled into my new home worry-free, I am confident in recommending Dave to anyone who wants a realtor who truly has his clients' best interests at heart.
I made the very emotional decision to sell my home and move to a new city. Just after listing with Dave I put an offer on a new home. Dave's support, attentiveness and humour helped me enormously as I faced short timelines and the pressure of removing subjects. His expertise and calm assurance also prevented sleepless nights as my family and I worried about several legal details. Dave sold my home in three weeks and earned every bit of my trust. I recommend him highly. Thank you Dave.
"I had been searching for a place for about a year and a half and had talked to a few people about what specific features I wanted. No one seemed to pay attention to my needs and were trying to convince me I was finding the "right" place and needed to put in offers on units I knew were not the home I was looking for. This attitude was not something I was working well with. I met with Dave and he asked for what I wanted and what I was looking at spending. He actually paid attention and we checked out a few places he felt would meet my requirements. As we went through different showings we talked about what I liked about them and what I did not. It helped give him an idea of what features I was hoping for and allowed him to narrow down the search based on this criteria. Within a short time, Dave found the spot that was the fit for me. I will confidently recommend Dave to friends that are looking for a new home and if I decided to move, which will be no time soon, he will be the person I go to again. "
Thanks again !!
Thanks very much Dave. You have been the most responsive and professional realtor I’ve ever worked with... David and Patricia have been well looked after, especially considering this type of deal must have been difficult for you. Nice working with you & hope we do a deal together again someday.

Dave has been the best realtor I have dealt with to date. He is patient, asks all the right questions and had the answers to all of mine when I was selling my condo. When I was looking for a new place, he was well informed, knew what to look for and was quick to take care of all the necessary details from the first offer to closing and possession. I really didn't have to worry about anything except what color I wanted to paint the bedroom! I would recommend Dave (and I have) to anyone who is looking to buy or sell any real estate in the Lower Mainland. In this buyer's market , selling can be a long and somewhat stressful undertaking---Dave had my place sold within two weeks of listing, so I could then take the time to shop for a new home. I am now settled into my new place and am very happy with how well the entire process went from start to finish. I really believe it was because Dave knew what he was doing and was a real pleasure to work with--- he helped make a stressful undertaking feel seamless. I will definitely use him as my realtor again. Thanks, Dave!

‘I am now living in my place and I really love it. Thanks again, Dave. It was great working with you. Your advice, knowledge and negotiating skills helped me move on to the next part of my life in a wonderful apartment. And I will be sure to pass on your name to anyone I know that needs a good realtor !’
After being a renter for more than a decade, it was hard to take the plunge into debt once more. Dave guided me through the process, skillfully and patiently. He kept me informed, and let me make up my own mind in my own time. He also provided information and names, so I could thoroughly research, and then choose the best possible mortgage for my needs. Always patient, always understanding, never pressuring, he helped this worry-wart through the entire process. He found me the absolute *best* place possible. I moved from my rented basement suite to my top-floor condo. I love my new home, and serene surroundings. And, now that I've finally made the move to live above-ground, I couldn't be happier. Thank you, Dave, for all you did to help me find a home I love coming back to every single day!
As it is for most cases with us, we made a spontaneous decision to buy our first ever house and we only had 2 months to complete the whole process! We had very limited knowledge of how the process works and we would have been lost without Dave. He sent a huge list of houses by email everyday and what helped the most was that he made himself available for viewing at all times- evenings, weekends, mornings... It was with his help that we found the perfect home for us in only 2 weeks! Dave also helped us with finding the other professionals we needed to finish the process and was with us to the last minute! We are very happy with our home and we couldn't thank Dave enough. We have recommended him to friends and family several times so far and will continue to do so!
Dave was wonderful! He helped me with every aspect of the sale/ purchase process. He used every possible means to inform prospective buyers about my condo. He was always available to do showings, even at short notice. He even accommodated the needs of my dog, by keeping her with him during an open house, so she wouldn’t have to be out on a very hot day. Dave worked very hard to sell my condo and as a result, we had an accepted offer 9 days after it went on the market. He is honest and ethical and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.
"After assessing my situation, Dave provided me with the guidance I needed in order to set the correct asking price for the successful sale of my property. Because of Dave's hard work and proven marketing techniques, I accepted an offer after my property was on the market for less than one week! Wow!"
"As a first time home buyer my knowledge of the whole process was very limited but Dave's desire to educate first time home buyers eliminated my anxiety and made me confident that with his help I could make the right decisions! I am very happy with my new home! I would recommend him to anyone who`s looking to buy a home!"
"Dave listened to my needs and wants, consistently reviewed and updated the criteria of my property search and most importantly, kept things real. He offered constructive advice to help me see all of the options and issues for each property we looked at. Dave's communication skills are excellent and all of my calls and questions were answered right away. I had 'Peace of Mind' throughout the entire process and now I am in a home I love!"
Hi Dave, ... I have known you for many years... and will be happy ,without hesitation, to refer some of my pre-approvals as they come along. Working with you on this latest transaction gave me a great understanding of your work and showed me that we have the same interest, looking out for the best interest of our clients. Well done, I am looking forward to working with you in the years to come.
