Sunhee B. bought a home in Mountain View

He was very professional, thoughtful, and responsive. Even though we were not prepared at all when we first met David, he guided us through the entire process and helped us find our first home with a perfect match.

Isaac L. sold a home in Los Altos

David helped us when we bought our first home in 2016 in Mountain View. We enjoyed working with him so much that in 2020/2021 when we decided to upgrade to a bigger home in the Mountain View / Los Altos area, we had zero hesitation to entrust him with buying the new home and selling the old one. He is truly interested in getting to know us personally, to understand our needs and to recommend options that are best for us. With Davids help, selling our home was such a breeze too! He took care of everything big and small, from all the complicated paperwork to managing all the contractors to prep our home for sale. In the end, the house was sold with multiple competing offers in about a week! My wife and I both think we are super lucky to have met David, and we have referred many of our close friends to him, all who had amazing experiences working with him too, so its not just us :). We 100% recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Mary Q. bought a home in Mountain View

We had a great experience with David as our realtor. As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions. David patiently guided us throughout the entire process, making sure we felt comfortable and never rushed or pressured. He worked around our schedules and was always available when needed. After our offer was accepted, he stayed on top of things and helped us close on a tight timeline. He also provided a lot of helpful info and suggestions regarding potential renovations. We would highly recommend David as an agent.

Youngho C. bought a home in Mountain View

My wife and I bought our first home in America through David. We communicated the area, price and needs of the house to him and we ended up buying a house that was exactly right for us. In the process of becoming the owner of the house we wanted, David and his team did their best, and we moved in safely and are living happily ever after. Specially, he is a strategist to make a plan for offering, dealing, negotiating. My case is not easy to handle to close the process, but he made a magic. If somebody want to find a house or sell it, I would like to suggest him to contact David first, he can share his experience and knowhow. I am very grateful for the prompt handling of big and small problems.

Leon B. sold a home in San Jose

David is perhaps one of the hardest-working human beings I have ever met. He would show us a house at 10 o'clock at night so we don't miss the offer deadline. But most importantly, I can place my complete trust in David's judgment and integrity. I believe that he always has our best interest in mind. If he thinks a house is a bad choice, he will not shy away from telling us so. In fact, during our month-long search, there had been more than one occasion where David advised us to walk away from a house because of his knowledge about a certain neighborhood, or potential problems with a house. To be honest, when we started out looking for a home, I was one of those buyers suspicious of the value of a buyer's agent. After my experience with David, I am now a firm believer that a good buyer's agent is worth everything. I know David will be our guy when it's time for us to sell our current house or find the next one.
