Patience, Assertiveness, Accessibility - - I recommend Dave and hes team without reservation and can attest to the high quality services they provided to me while purchasing my third home. They listened to and respected my preferences and needs and represented my interests effectively. They demonstrated patience as we looked at approximately sixty properties before I found the one that I purchased. They were both easily accessible throughout the process of exploring and negotiating the purchase of my home. They were also assertive advocates while negotiating on a multitude of matters related to purchasing a property. They acted above and beyond the duties of an agent while we wrote contract after contract, and offered a hospitable presence throughout the process. I plan to contact Dave and his team to list my property when ready to sell again and to help in the search for my next purchase. I am available to answer any questions or to speak further with interested parties for recommendations. ~Lisa Porto
