I'm always busy, and it was made easy for me - even at very odd hours and locations. I haven't previously had an agent experience like this. Didn't know what I was missing. The overall professionalism was impeccable, as well as command of the relevant material and facile manner of making things understandable. Many thanks.

Dave brought tremendous expertise, a great sense of humor, and consistent patience to my home buying experience. He helped me find exactly the home I was looking for, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in Sacramento.

My wife and I found David Philipp and his staff to be great to work with. Great follow through, a quick and easy sale on our end. We would highly recommend David and his staff to help other on a purchase or sale. When we are ready to purchase our next home we will call David!!!

Dave Phillip is the BEST - I would never buy or sell a house without him. My family and I have worked with him in the purchase and/or sale of 6 homes. I trust him completely, and he is extremely knowledgeable/skilled at what he does. He is also such a pleasure to work with - patient, warm, kind and funny. Thank you, Dave!!

Dave went above and beyond for us during the purchase of our home in Sacramento. We had a significant time constraint, and Dave did everything he could to make sure our purchase went smoothly and on schedule. We also could not be happier with the services provided, and the support of the downtown office. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough.

Hi Dave! Thank you for everything. We are in love with our new home and have you to thank. You search patiently with us as we learned and grew. We appreciate your swift communication, constant support, and soft guidance throughout our first home buying experience. As we sit on our back porch, play corn hole with friends or grab a beer with neighbors we have you to thank. We could not have done it without you and we feel blessed to have worked with the best!

Dave went above and beyond to see that the sale of my home received top dollar. If you are looking for an experienced and trustworthy agent, I highly recommend Dave Phillip!

Dave is very likely the best realtor we have ever worked with. He was responsive, patient, very tuned in to our needs and a market expert. Any one of these things is valuable and the combination of these things is very rare. He knows the Midtown market cold and helped us navigate it with ease. We have negotiated several real estate deals since moving to California in 1999 and, without a question, this is the one that felt the most civilized. The combination of Dave's manner and market knowledge made us feel extremely confident that our transaction ( which was in no way a vanilla transaction ) was running smoothly and was going to close escrow without a hitch. And it did!. Thank you, Dave, for the best real estate experience we have ever had!

Additional Testimonials

Dave started out as my realtor and we are now friends. We closed our deals on several rentals (midtown, east sac, and citrus heights) about a year ago and he is still helping us. I'm struggling to find all of the right words. He took his time with me and my wife, he listened to us, provided us with a variety of options so we could determine what was right for us. So, a year later, I am completely satisfied with our purchases and how Dave helped facilitate the process. He was and still is on our side, which is not always the case nowadays. We still seek his advice with remodels and we are excited to share our progress with him. Today he visited us at one of our properties and we took him out to lunch. His contacts for wood floors, painting, and electricians helped me transform this property into a jewel. Thank you Dave. Big hug!!

Dave is amazing. We recently purchased our new home in El Dorado Hills after looking at a LOT of houses! Dave has a way of making you feel like you're priority one, even though I know he was very busy. He taught us a lot about the area, giving us educated input without trying to persuade us in any one direction. The professionals he recommended turned out to be great too. We ended up using one of our VA loans we have available to us and, on our end anyway, it was practically effortless. Thanks to his negotiating skills, we were able to find our dream home and beat out several other offers. I can't say enough about Dave. He was an absolute pleasure to work with!! He's smart, professional, very hard-working, detail oriented, funny, and extremely patient!!! I would highly recommend Dave and will use him again if/when we want to sell our home!!!

David worked so hard for my wife and I as we navigated the process of buying our first home. I actually almost feel bad because our price range was only in the mid-100 thousands - I have to wonder if he wound up making any money working with us. I believe his usual properties are worth a little more, but all this means is that he was willing to go the extra mile for a client even if it wasn't the most profitable thing he could be doing. This is GOOD, HONEST work by a good man. Sacramento is a small town and good connections are king in this market. I haven't met a single person who has had a bad thing to say about Mr. Philipp. Onto the metrics - Local Knowledge: Dave knows the Sacramento area through and through and he helped us scope down the kind of house we could both afford and would be interested in buying. Previous agents took us on wild goose chases through some really disturbing properties. Dave knew what neighborhoods to eliminate before he even took us to look at any properties. He took the time to figure out our wants and he was able to use his own knowledge to direct us to the best properties for our own tastes and needs. Process Expertise: Buying a home is so complicated and Dave guided us through so many situations where I would have been totally lost on my own. Especially considering that we bought our house with an FHA loan and the property had all sorts of complications. I think there were even a couple situations that Dave had not dealt with before but he was able to expertly learn about them and navigate them to help us avoid pitfalls. I would have been lost without his guidance. Responsiveness: All I can say is that I never once felt like Dave had other priorities which he put ahead of me. There was more than one occasion where we signed papers in my apartment or in Dave's house at 9pm on weekdays. Customer service at its finest. Negotiation Skills: I won't go into much detail, but I will say that we bought a foreclosed property, and Dave was able to convince the bank to contribute a more-than healthy amount to our closing costs because of various factors. All the while, the bank was steadfast in its position that it wasn't going to put any money into the property itself. I guess a bank doesn't want to have to deal with the complications of doing work to a property but it is less burdensome to contribute a few extra thousand dollars so that somebody takes it off their hands. Dave did all that work and saved us thousands of dollars. All in all, I couldn't have asked for more in a real estate agent. He went out of his way for us in so many ways and saved us so much money at junctures where I wouldn't have even known that it was possible to negotiate. Dave is effective and judicious with his business and he works extra hard to keep a good place in the community. He is doing good work in Sacramento in some very hard times. I'll always call him an honest professional and a friend. This was my first experience dealing with this size transaction. I am confident that when I enter into a much larger real estate transaction that Dave will be the best agent I could find. Helpful (0)

We initially contacted Dave when he was referred to us by friends. Dave helped us purchase our duplex in Midtown. He was very patient and clearly understood what we were looking for. Dave was knowledgeable and fun to shop around with, even if you do not enjoy house shopping. He was also very responsive and helpful with questions and assistance we needed before and after the sale. We feel like we can always rely on him. We recommend Dave anytime we know someone is looking for a property.

I was very fortunate to have used David Philipp to help me with my home purchase. David was professional, very knowledgeable, and available. My desired neighborhood was mostly older homes and the one I opted for needed a fair amount of work. When the home inspection came back with a rather long list he was proactive in reaching out to contacts and obtaining bids on needed work so we could have all the information to make an informed decision before proceeding. This also proved enormously helpful after closing. He was a wealth of information and his work ethic took a great deal of the stress and guess work out of the process. David was a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate professional. He is a treasure and his serve extended well beyond the transaction.

The old slogan from Greyhound Bus, "Leave the Driving to Us" would be an appropriate way to describe David Philipp. He stayed by our side throughout the entire buying experience from helping us define our preferences, to finding the perfect home, to negotiating the sale, to helping establish us as homeowners concerning everything from recommended gardeners to pool maintainers. There was never a moment when we thought he wasn't completely sincere and focused. An added bonus is that he is smart.
