There is a common misconception that all real estate agents are the same. This couldn't be further from the truth. In real estate the common 80/20 rule applies. 80% of the business comes from 20% of all agents. Listen in to what to look for and how same agents can save you thousands of dollars.
We couldn't have asked for a better realtor! My girlfriend and I moved to SoCal from New York City and had very little exposure to this side of the country. On my first call with David (I found him on Yelp!), he asked a few detailed questions regarding our expectations and then gave a great overview of the various areas/cities in Orange County that would be a fit for us. He went on to set up a search for us which we reviewed online. After David had narrowed the properties down for us, based on area, view, year built, etc., we scheduled a day to look at the options in person with him. Only 1 out of 7 properties was a bad fit, the rest was pretty much what we were looking for. We decided on what should be our new home, David guided us through the paperwork, and we moved in shortly after. I'll refer David to friends and business partners and we'll certainly use David if we decide to stay on the West Coast and we're ready to buy a home! Thank you, David! Mag D
