When my husband and I decided to separate, finding a place to live was at the top of my long list of important things to take care of. I have many realtors among my family and friends, but I wanted to work with someone that was neutral - only focused on finding the right house for me - not caught-up in everything else that was going on.
I drove around the neighbourhood where I was hoping to land and I saw Dave's sign on a couple of properties. I called him and told him about my situation and that I wouldn't likely be able to commit to a property for a few months (until the legal ducks were in a row), but I wanted to educate myself on the market and become familiar with the kinds of properties, prices, etc, etc. "No problem, Doris - I'll hook you up with daily listings of properties that you might be interested in, and we'll go see whatever you want".
Months went by, and we looked at lots of properties. Finally, as the legal and financial issues were resolved, I was ready to pass go.
We found a property that I thought was the right one for me. Now, this is where you want your agent to really shine. Dave was fantastic!! He knew when to show interest, and when to pull back; what cards to play and when to play them. He got me the house that hit all of my buttons at, the best price.
I am forever grateful for how Dave took care of me in this transition. I feel like he looked out for me like a brother. He is a great listener and has a keen talent for distilling the important from the fluff. All-in-all, the important thing is that I never felt alone. I knew that I always had Dave in my corner as a great sounding board and even when he disagreed with me, he could see things from my perspective. These are the talents that you want in a realty professional and Dave has them all!!!
I would highly recommend Dave Elfassy for his market knowledge, keen ability to understand the needs of his clients, and savvy negotiating skills! If you use him, you'll want to recommend him too!!
