What My Clients are Saying
Dave is local to the Reston area and has a lot of knowledge of the region. He is professional and honest. He’s talked to us like normal people, not in a fake, sales person way like some realtors. He told us when he didn’t think we should buy a house and gave us the reasons why rather than trying to talk us into something that we’d later regret even though it made more work for him because he had to show us more homes. We really appreciated his honesty and his knowledgeable approach to evaluating the homes we looked at. He was there every step of the way including for the entire home inspection. Overall I’d say he’s honest, friendly, professional, and experienced.
We have had a wonderful experience with Dave. He is very knowledgeable and takes his time to make sure everything is done well. The pictures and advertisement of our house were spectacular. This was our second time of him being our agent and would strongly recommend his services.
This was the second time we have used Agent Dave and we came back because of how good of an experience we had the first time. He helped us properly price our townhouse to generate huge interest, we ended up having over 20 showings in the first 24 hours and receiving 5 offers (4 of them over asking) on the opening weekend. In two buys and one sell with Agent Dave he has gotten us sold and our offers on new houses accepted within one day every single time. There is no other agent I would consider beyond Dave Swartzbaugh.
We really enjoyed working with Dave. He was extremely patient, provided us with very sound advice and was just fun to work with. No pressure, easy to call and work with. I highly recommend him.
Working with Dave was a pleasure, and my townhouse sold within just a few days for full price, no contingencies. He was realistic, thoughtful, and very helpful in the preparation of my home for listing, using his range of experiences to help me make the house look as good as it could look without spending unnecessary money. He suggested small changes that had big impacts on the overall appearance of the home, while recognizing that I was still living in the house. His marketing strategy was superb, as my open house was attended by far more people than any in the townhouse complex, and resulted in a quick sale.
Dave made the 1st time home buying experience a breeze. From day 1 he was transparent with the process and sure to answer all my questions. His attention to detail was greatly appreciated for someone who had little knowledge about buying a home. Dave is extremely knowledgeable, flexible, and easy to work with. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a top notch realtor in the area.
