“The first time we met with (Dave) he used the whiteboard in his office to lay out all of the details of our purchase. He is excellent at explaining everything. We came up with an amount that would work with our budget and we started shopping.
Dave was literally available at any time we has a question. It didn’t matter what time of the day or night it was, he returned our calls immediately. He was a pleasure to work with.”
“I can never look at another white board the sam way again! I met Dave late August through our realtor Christina. We were pretty skeptical being renters our whole life. But we heard great things about Dave and wanted to see what he’s about. The first appointment and consultation with him was amazing. He told us on the spot how owning a home would feel like a-z.”
