I greatly appreciate your professionalism in handling the sale of my home in Aptos. Your extensive real estate knowledge was apparent throughout the entire process. Your suggestions regarding what to fix up prior to listing my home, what would probably come up in an inspection, and especially where to price the townhome were spot on! Your help in understanding the multiple offers was very valuable. Every step of the listing, escrow and title process was made easier and less stressful for me due to your assistance and expertise.

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job as my real estate agent! I would gladly and without question recommend you to my friends and acquaintances.

I've had the opportunity to work with Dave both as a buyer and a seller over the last 5 years. When I was searching for a house in the area, Dave was diligent in locating and showing me numerous homes within my price range. He was patient and seemed constantly available. We eventually located the perfect location and Dave made sure the process was seamless for me, dealing with obstacles and minimizing the stress process.
Five years later I was relocating and called Dave to assist me with the sale. He once again provided stellar service. In my life I've worked with several realtors on home sales or purchases. I would have to put Dave at the top of the list when it comes to customer service. He's honest, dependable, knowledgeable and listens to his customers.

I wanted to write this letter on behalf of my real estate agent, David Bergman. Working with David has been unbelievably smooth and positive in every way. Not only is David extremely professional and competent, he is genuinely kind and supportive. David is always available by phone, and no question or concern I had was insignificant. He is organized, efficient, and has excellent communication skills.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with David, as he is trustworthy and reliable. I whole heartedly recommend David for his integrity and intelligence, and for handling my real estate transaction with ease and calm. He is a delight, and I know he will continue to prosper in his career.

We asked Dave Bergman to be our Realtor when we decided to sell our Scotts Valley home after
receiving glowing recommendations from several friends. We were impressed at the first
meeting - he arrived well prepared with comparable listings, was very knowledgeable about the city of Scotts Valley, and gave us great advice regarding how to price and prepare our home for sale.

Thanks to Dave, we received two offers the first day our home was shown. Then the real challenges unfolded. Our buyer's realtor proved to be unreliable and difficult. He made unreasonable demands, failed to meet deadlines, and refused to return calls, texts and emails. We were also in the process of purchasing another home out of the area and that Realtor was going through a personal crisis. Because of this, she was unable to stay on top of things, also missed deadlines and failed to update us. We were stressed.

Not only did Dave do his job superbly, he did the job of the other two realtors. When Frank and I were melting down, he calmly took control. He was always diplomatic and patient, and he solved the problems that came up. He spent countless hours communicating with Realtors, Escrow Officers and Lenders and returned our phone calls, texts and emails within minutes - even in the evenings and on weekends. He went above and beyond what was required of him. Dave is the reason we were able to successfully close both the house we were selling and the house we were purchasing on the date we needed.

Buying or selling a home is very stressful and confusing for the average consumer. We can't recommend Dave highly enough. If you want a knowledgeable, honest, competent, compassionate and efficient Realtor, he is that person. We only wish we could have used him for the purchase of our new home as well.

I recently worked with David on a real estate transaction in which he represented the Seller and I represented the Buyer. Even though we were on opposite sides of the transaction, we were able to work collaboratively to successfully close the transaction in an efficient manner. David was upbeat and friendly, was pragmatic when dealing with any challenges that arose, and was professional and responsive. I'm happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

I have had the pleasure of working with David buying and selling my properties in Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley the past 5 years. David's wealth of experience, knowledge of the area, diligence, and attention to detail made all my transactions worry free. Even when the process of selling seemed daunting, David reassured me everything would work out. He took the time to answer all my  questions and he understands the needs of his clients. David was outstanding in terms of his ability to make it happen! I felt like family and that I was his only client. I Highly recommend this agent and friend for your next real estate transaction. Thank You David once again for making my real estate dreams come true!
