I have worked with many brokers over the years.
My mantra is “I cannot work with a broker who is a friend, generally because we end up not being friends after the sale is over”.
I tend to have very high expectations, and the brokers I work with need to be there for me at every turn, or I get frustrated and dissatisfied, which happens A LOT.
I chose Dave with a little hesitation, as I knew him, but only saw him sporadically. I told him about my expectations and was very honest with him about my reservations.
Well, we agreed to move forward, and let me be the first to say, that Dave was the best broker I have EVER worked with.
Not only did he do everything he promised, but he went so far above and beyond the ordinary during the process, that I gained more respect for him as a professional realtor, but also gained a true friend.
It was the best decision I have ever made hiring a broker. I would be happy to talk to anyone who is considering him.
By the way, during this process, Dave was awarded Realtor of the Year. Wow. Was I happy, and I couldn’t have felt better about my decision. Cheers!
