He provided sound advice and worked with us on different marketing and preparation options

Dave was amazing at helping us through a corporate relocation. He provided sound advice and worked with us on different marketing and preparation options. He even went above and beyond when we needed some repairs done and had already vacated the home. I'd highly recommend Dave.

Thorough, knowledgeable, down to earth, reliable, friendly yet professional and delivers results

Hands down, one of the BEST people I have worked with. Thorough, knowledgeable, down to earth, reliable, friendly yet professional and delivers results. I could not be more impressed. A rare find to have someone on your side who is well-versed and connected in the industry, and still someone you would go for a beer with at the end of the day.

They went above and beyond to provide exceptional support throughout the entire home-buying process

We cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience working with Kara and Dave! They went above and beyond to provide exceptional support throughout the entire home-buying process. We worked directly with Kara Pelesikoti for much of the process, and she was truly amazing! When we finally found the home we wanted to buy, Dave and Kara submitted our offer immediately, and from the time our offer was accepted, the entire process proceeded seamlessly. I would be remiss if I didn't also mention Dave's amazing negotiation skills. We truly appreciated his efforts on our behalf. If there ever comes a time to upgrade to a larger home, we will 100% be looking to work with Kara and Dave again.

Helped us understand the process and helped us find the best opportunity for our needs

It was our first time buying a house, and we got more than what we were looking for, for less than it should've costed! Couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Dave and his team helped us understand the process, was patient with us, and helped us find the best opportunity for our needs.  Would recommend to anyone looking for a new home.

Dave was extremely organized, focused and driven to help locate what we were looking for

I was relocating and had a small window of availability to view potential properties. Dave was extremely organized, focused and driven to help locate what we were looking for in the price budget we established. He was a calming influence when things did not go our way with the mortgage company as well as the delays to close driven by the seller. He added humor appropriately, and was a true pleasure to work with through the entire process.

We appreciate how responsive and knowledgeable he is

We have used Dave to buy and sell three houses, and he has done an outstanding job. He has helped us prepare and market our houses to sell them quickly and at full-price, and has helped us find properties we love. We appreciate how responsive and knowledgeable he is. We would highly recommend him to anyone!

He negotiated a great deal on our home and again with the purchase of the new one

Home buying has changed a great deal since the last time we purchased a home 15 years ago. Dave was great through the entire process! His knowledge and practical advice helped us to feel reassured and confident throughout this journey. We purchased and sold all within a week. He negotiated a great deal on our home and again with the purchase of the new one. We hit a small snag a few days prior to closing. Dave and our lender worked tirelessly to make sure we were able to close on the date we expected. Without his expertise and persistence, I'm certain the closing would have been moved out a few days. We appreciate everything he did for us! Thanks Dave!! I will recommend Dave to family and friends for any real estate needs.

We never had to wait for a reply to our questions and he made the process of selling our home easy

From beginning to end, Dave was professional and responsive! We never had to wait for a reply to our questions and he made the process of selling our home easy. It was gone in just two days! He is knowledgable, straightforward and so easy to work with! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for assistance buying or selling a home!

- A. & S. Christenson, Stillwater 2017

 

He knew the market extremely well and explained the purchase process fully

David was an excellent realtor. He knew the market extremely well and explained the purchase process fully. He is in high demand so we had to plan ahead but he made every effort to accommodate our schedule or have an associate assist us if he wasn't available. He was competent and aggressive when representing us. These were the qualities we looked for when choosing a realtor.

- D. & S. Zellmer, St. Paul 2017

 

He’s extremely trustworthy, knowledgeable and responsive

Dave was such a great resource for us while buying our first home. He helped us make an offer before the home hit the market and negotiate smoothly through the entire process. We would recommend Dave to anyone thinking about buying or selling. He’s extremely trustworthy, knowledgeable and responsive. We had a great experience with each of the professionals that Dave referred to us as well.

- S. & K. Pelesikoti, Woodbury 2017

 

He was flexible and tireless until he found us just the right home

Looking for a home in a different city than you currently live has a lot of challenges. Dave's organizational skills in getting multiple showings set up so that our time was used wisely proved invaluable in our search. He was flexible and tireless until he found us just the right home. We are very, very pleased with our experience working with Dave.
