These two are DEDICATED, THOROUGH, and PROFESSIONAL! My wife and I had extremely exacting criteria for the type of home we wanted to purchase and Dave and Pete were on the search like a pair of bloodhounds! EVERY morning I was presented with an up-to-date list of all the potential matches in the area we demanded. Our wish was their command and every requested viewing, inquiry, and offer was IMMEDIATELY arranged. Our chosen area and price range put us in a very competitive market and there was literally NO time, day or night, when Dave and Pete were unavailable. My 11:30pm text messages were answered within minutes, and any information requests were returned within mere moments. After a grueling, competitive search, the day came when we successfully closed the deal on our new house! Beginning with a 9am showing (arranged at 12 the night before), an offer made at 10AM (They had blank paperwork already prepared!), a counter-offer submitted at 3PM and the signing of a conditional sale at 10PM. Dave drove clear across town to the bar I was eating wings at to have the papers signed and the deal locked! At no point in the entire sale did we ever feel pressured, rushed, or unheard. Their vast breadth of knowledge, commitment and good sense culminate in a professionalism that outshines every other Real Estate Agent I have ever dealt with! Excellent advice, true honesty, and a refreshing realism will be your home buying experience,as it was in ours.
Let me speak about my experience with Dave and Peter.
They are my Batman and Robin, Dean and Jerry, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Abbott and Costello!!
In All seriousness, my experience with these gentlemen was very professional, personable and with no pressure attitude. This resulted in a purchase of a very beautiful condo that fit my lifestyle. And a added bonus it resulted in a great friendship.
I would highly recommend these gentlemen and I have.
Thank you Dave and Peter.
Dave and Peter were fantastic. They really spend the time analysing our needs and providing great feedback on potential properties. Each viewing came with them scrutinising the properity to make sure we knew what "baggage" the property would come with. They were very helpful and patient as we were first time buyers and had many many questions. Their attention to details and commitment to their clients really made our experience stress free.
We would like to express our positive emotions about the great service we receive from our team of realtors Dave Cooke and Pete Nieuwesteeg. They helped us to find and buy the home exactly in accordance with our family's needs. The job was done at a very high level as they paid close attention on many necessary details such as clear communication, showing homes at suitable for us time, help with transfer and so on. The paper work was done very carefully and professionally.
And moreover we received help with moving in on our possession day!
We really appreciate the great job that Peter and Dave did for the comfort of our family.
Dave and Pete always got back to us quickly about any house we were interested in and always gave us good advice. They were able to educate us as first time buyers on the ins and outs of the real estate market without applying any sales tactics. They never presured us to buy anything, and as Dave would say of he wouldn't buy the house himself he would tell you.
Laura and I would like to thank you again for helping us with the sale and purchase of our house. We have been very happy with the professional service you have provided, and will not hesitate to recommend your service to anyone who is looking for a realtor.
We especially like your approach about “focusing on the people”, rather than just “making a sale”. Throughout the whole process, you had been very supportive and resourceful, patiently educated us about the market and making sure we avoid common buyer/seller mistakes. You took us to numerous viewings; pull out comparables, until we finally found the right house. Your knowledge of the market certainly gave us the confidence when submitting our offer and negotiating with the seller.
Your advices on preparing our house for sale were also invaluable. All your help for getting the house ready, from painting, to cleaning, to taking out the trash and nailing the fence, were most appreciated. And at the end, your experience of the market helped us to correctly priced our house for a quick sale; with a sale price above and beyond our original expectation.
Buying and selling real estate can be a lot of pressure for some. But having you on our team has made this process a lot smoother and stress-free for us.
We thank you wholeheartedly for your professional service and for you being focused on finding the right house for us that we can proudly call home.
Sincerely - Andy & Laura
If you want friendly and professional service, I highly recommend Dave. During both my sale and purchase, Dave was wonderful. He was always available for viewings, prompt in responding to inquires, and addressed any problems that came about quickly and efficiently. I would recommend Dave to anyone!
