Testimonials for Dave DuPont
"You pulled off an amazing feat in selling our house! When we first met with you we were impressed with the thought you have put into the marketing process and it worked! You gave us great advice for getting the house ready and recommendations for great vendors. You also had a view of the home's value apart from the current market that helped us think about value more intelligently. We think your dedication to acting as a fiduciary for us resulted in a higher selling price than we would have achieved with other brokers.
Throughout the process you also inspired confidence despite a crazy market as a result of your deep knowledge of the market and your experience. With the amount of competitive inventory on the market and the reluctance of buyers to commit, its a testament to your abilities that you were able to attain a selling price above what other brokers thought was possible.
I've been waiting until the house closed to say these things as I didn't want to jinx it, but we really appreciate how much effort you constantly put into our house. You were really dedicated to getting the best transaction for us possible.
We really enjoyed working with you as well. You were very helpful and friendly throughout the process. We hope you have a great rest of the year and if we can be a reference for you please let us know." 33 Blackfield Drive, Tiburon Julie & William
"Dave demonstrated an extremely high level comprehension of financial markets and economic conditions that was imperative to our purchase decision. When Sarah and I stumbled on the perfect spot to start a family, we were not even looking to sell our current home. After running numbers, we realized that our dream could become a reality. We felt so confident in his spectacular marketing plan that we purchased a full month before we were ready to put our home on the market. Despite bleak economic news in the papers, our home sold for full asking price only 2 days after the broker's open. Dave is tremendously driven and are an absolute pleasure to work with."

"Dave possesses that winning combination of integrity, ethics and intelligence. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Dave for three years. From the onset, Dave demonstrated a superior level of professionalism coupled with an ability to listen and truly appreciate my goals and objectives. He then applied his excellent analytical skills and knowledge that resulted in the implementation of a strategy that brought stellar results. This approach and these attributes are an integral part of who Dave is and how he approaches "problems" to achieve optimal results. I would trust Dave to support me in any capacity and cannot recommend him highly enough."

"Dave duPont exhibits all of the virtues we sought in a real estate advisor and more. He is trustworthy, professional, knowledgeable and experienced. David took the time to understand our objectives and wishes as they developed a strategy to market and sell our home. By the time we put our home on the market, we had already moved cross country, and we were nervous about the prospect of selling a home long distance. David exceeded our expectations and eased our fears by taking care of all the necessary details to get the house ready for sale. We were extremely impressed with their attention to detail and superb marketing skills. Due to David's hard work, excellent process, and ability to close the deal, our home sold quickly. We feel fortunate to have worked with them."

"Dave was a true pleasure to work with on the sale of our home. He was respectful and professional, as well as sensitive to this being our first home. Between them they have a strong sense of what sells and how to price accurately. He had an amazing eye for the things that were unique about the house and property, and really tuned in to the details that would appeal to a buyer. He was very generous with the amount of time he put into working with us, and quick to respond to emails and phone calls. If we sell a home again, he will absolutely be the first call we make."
