"David made the process of our first home purchase seem like a breeze. We were able to close and get keys in 20 days! He suggested things that are in our best interested and helped us inspect and was honest about how he felt about our decision to buy with facts and also his past experiences with clients. I felt really confident and was extremely pleased with our purchase price. Thank you again David!"
"My wife and I could not be more impressed with David! His communication is impeccable and is always available via call, text, or email.
We had a very complex situation in which we were selling our house and buying a new home non-contingent on the sale of our property. The market had just turned into a buyers market and we were extremely concerned that we would not sell our house in time and end up carrying two mortgages. David worked around the clock navigating both the sale of our property and the purchase of our new home. We ended up closing on both properties within a week of each other and did not have to carry 2 mortgages!!!!!! Way to go David!!!!!!!!
We highly recommend David and can't wait to work with him again!!"
"David is a polite guy who is always ready to show you a new house. He researches houses and sends personal emails, as opposed to auto-generated robot emails I've seen some other people send. I enjoyed working with him to find me a nice house." - Pramod
"David Marks came to us through a friend's referral when we were looking at Seattle properties to buy. David exceeded expectations every step of the way though closing and handling follow-on questions post-closing. He is exceptionally dedicated and honest with his clients. We learned quickly that we could depend on David to be very responsive, and he demonstrated good judgement in property valuations and negotiating strategy for his clients. We would use David Marks again in a heartbeat for future real estate work." - John
"David is an agent who is on the ball. He returns calls quickly, is extremely knowledgeable, has a great win-win negotiation style and is very pleasant to deal with. I would highly recommend him as an agent if you are looking to buy or sell! Thank-you David for making the sometimes stressful experience in selling/buying such a great experience!" - Gayl
David can almost be called a Seattle native, first arriving in the great Northwest at the age of 10. After growing up and attending elementary and high school in Steilacoom and Lakewood, David attended the University of Washington and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing and Finance.
David is a business professional, with experience starting and operating businesses ranging from wine importing and distribution to property management and software consulting. This varied history has given him valuable experience in the art of negotiation, sales and marketing, and managing transactions.
During his 10 years as a wine distributor, regularly calling on restaurants, wine shops, and grocery stores, he had the opportunity to explore Seattle and Eastside neighborhoods, giving him valuable knowledge of many of the wonderful attributes that make our neighborhoods so unique. David first obtained his real estate license in 1989, founding and operating a successful property management and brokerage company for 11 years. This past experience gave David a deep knowledge base in real estate, including construction and property maintenance as well as real estate financing.
David realizes that consumers have many options when it comes to selecting a real estate professional to assist them with selling or buying a home or investment property. He understands the 24/7 nature of the market, the importance of clear communication with his clients and close monitoring of every transaction, big or small.
David and his wife Julia live in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle with their daughter, Ella, and an oversized Norwegian Forest cat, Maddie.
