Testimonials for Dave Wagner

We want to say one more time how pleased we were with your help in selling our home on Honeywood Court. Your professionalism and cool demeanor were inspiring, and took us through a difficult transaction to completion. You were always available and very responsive to our questions, comments and phone calls, and made us feel as though we were your only clients. Without hesitation we would recommend you to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.
—Paula and Ralph

We just wanted to take the time to tell you how much we appreciated everything you did to help us sell and buy a home. You don’t know how much it meant to have an agent that returned every call in  a timely manner, who went above and beyond in helping us fill out the mountains of paperwork, and having your knowledge to help us make huge, living changing decisions. Seriously, you made what its known to be one of the most stressful situations in life, a pleasant and joyful experience. Having dealt with realtors in the past, who are understandably very busy, you managed to somehow never lack the time to help us every step of the way. We want you to know that whenever we hear of someone looking to buy or sell a home, we highly recommend you, and when the time comes for us to move again, you will definitely be our agent. In fact, we look forward to it!!!
—Curtis and Londa

We are long overdue to thank you in writing for all the support and advocacy that you provided to us during our search for our new home last fall. We are very happy we ‘accidentally‘ found you when we visited your Open House. (not surprisingly. at a home that was clearly beyond our price range). From that first meeting to the closing, you provided us with a unique mix of market knowledge. negotiating strategy and referrals to local contractors. that allowed us to develop an improvement budget as a part of the buying ‘process’. During that time, your dry wit and sense of humor helped us to keep everything in perspective.

Although we did a good amount of homework on neighborhoods that interested us, and went to a number of Open Houses unrepresented. your knowledge of the Orangevale/Fair Oaks market allowed us to truly target homes that met our financial and living space requirements. Our search became must more focused after we met. What was not clear at the time. but has been established over the past few months. is that prices were beginning to soften when we were looking. You were able to find a home that met our needs but which we felt was somewhat overpriced.

You embraced our decision to negotiate and gave us great tactical ideas on handling the ‘back and forth‘ of offers and counters. We struck a good bargain for both us and the sellers. and we had a budget back for improvements. Now that some ‘rationality’ has returned to housing prices, we think that your expertise and knowledge is especially important. We don’t believe that current market conditions will be kind to ‘order taker/writer‘ real estate agents who do not do their homework and truly represent their clients.

Again, thanks for your assistance. Please feel free to share this ‘testimonial‘  with anyone who may be interested.

Dave Wagner was recommended to me by another real estate agent I had previously dealt with. After a brief discussion with him I decided to choose him for a personal residential buy/sell situation that looked to be rather complex.

The sale of the one house and the purchase of the other went off without a hitch, and I have to say that I was more than pleased with Dave ’s performance every step of the way. He not only exhibited professionalism, enthusiasm, creativity and knowledge with potential buyers, the seller’s agent, the title companies and the financial people, Dave was there at every turn, understanding and dealing very effectively with people and situations as well or better than any agent I’ve ever worked with.

As impressive as I was with Dave’s performance, I was equally impressed with his personal involvement in my situation. It quickly became apparent that Dave cares a great deal about the overall outcome, not only to earn his commission but to satisfy his clients’ desires.

I enthusiastically recommend Dave to anyone seeking a top notch real estate agent.

We simply cannot thank you enough for all you have done. We all knew going into the listing that it would be difficult, but i don‘t think any of us really knew yust how difficult it would be. The amount of work you put into this was phenomenal. What truly stood out was when we had pretty much given up, dealing with all of our creditors and lien holders. Dave simply stepped in and took over And we knew exactly how difficult they had all been to deal with_ it is why we were willing to just give up as most of them were down right nasty to deal with. But Dave just plunged right in and worked all of them to get the numbers in sync and some how pulled it all together

The list of what you accomplished is truly amazing, these are just a few or the things you did, as there was so much more

 

  • Negotiated with the first lender and obtained additional funds from them for us to use to payoff other lien holders.
  • Negotiated with the second lender who truly was not going to budge, into an amount that made it all possible.
  • Negotiated with 4 creditors who had liens on the subject property, even to go so far as to set up repayment terms for us with one, so that they would release the liens.
  • Arranged with title to have the timing on all of this perfected to the day even having a mobile notary at the last minute when Paul was out or’ town on the day -of signing.
  • Worked within our time frame for the lRS levy release
  • Made calls to the real estate attorney to make sure we did this the ‘right way.
  • Arranged for 3 one to stay at the house so it would not be empty while waiting fo all the above to t e place.
  • Made minor repairs to the property 3 appraisal.
  • Staged the house with your own in re
  • Even down to having the house cleaned for the new buyers

Short sales can be difficult and everyone has said they take a long time, but even with all we were dealing with, we actually closed in less time than other people we know, who only had one or two lien holders. Although the stress of a short sale was definitely overwhelming at times, there is such relief in knowing we can hold our heads up high as did not have a foreclosure, we had a short sale. We did not walk away, we worked it out. We would not be in this position if not for Dave’s diligence with the lenders and Jodie talking us down when we were ready to throw in the towel.

We would highly recommend Dave and Jodie to anyone looking to sell or buy a home, there is no one in this industry who goes this far for their clients. We also do not want to forget their team, Donna and Kathy from escrow just managed to make it all happen

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Paul and Joni Irvine
