As I sit comfortably in my new house having recently signed the contract with the buyer of my old house I am thinking about how to review David McIlwaine. The words brilliant realtor, clever negotiator and financially savvy come to mind. While these words describe David, he is so much more. It began with a conversation; "I'd like to sell my house and move but...." The but was followed with all the reasons I didn't think I could do it yet. I expected him to agree that it wasn't the time for me. Instead he responded to each of my "buts" with simple solutions which I had never considered. At the end of the conversation it went from "I can't" to "Let's do this!" Throughout the process he was a careful listener to everything I said. He quickly had an understanding of precisely what I wanted in my next house. He knows the entire Denver metro area well which was extremely valuable to me because my search began with looking all over. By sending me very tailored listings daily I was able to narrow down the search to a few areas. Therefore once we went out looking, finding a new house was remarkably quick and simple. Then he masterfully crafted the offer such that it was chosen from the several received by the buyer without a bidding war ensuing. As for the sale of my old house he calmly guided me as to how to get it ready with far less effort and expense then I would have initially thought would be needed. He fielded many panicked calls and texts when I became overwhelmed and always left me feeling reassured. My old house was listed on a Thursday evening and by Monday I had two offers to choose from and it is now under contract for $8K over the asking price. The entire process is now nearly complete. As I reflect back on all of it I see David as not just a brilliant realtor but more of a life coach. He heard what I wanted and coached me into getting it done. Everyone has stories of awful realtors, myself included. David is the great story that everyone should have and so I highly recommend him.
David did an impressive job. My house sold for more that I expected and David kept me informed every step of the way. Any problems were handled expertly and his negotiation skills are sharp.
David was a great help in leading me through home selling process. I most valued his ability to explain the frustrating parts of the negotiating process. I would not hesitate to recommend Him to anyone interested in selling their house.
David is very professional and knowledgeable. He is very attentive, and did everything he could to help us find the area and home that worked for us. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I would not have my condo without David. He helped me navigate a lot of holes that came up as I was getting ready to buy my house. He was my guide through the Denver market. He helped me understand real estate terminology and anytime I had a question he would answer quickly and gracefully. He also helped me knock $2000 off the price. When I do buy a larger property I will be using David once again. Thank you so much sir.
David Mcllwaine did a great job at helping my family and I get the home we wanted in a sellers market. He was willing to work with us and find us a place that suited us.
David McIlwaine went the extra mile to find a home for me. I had a very picky list of needs and a deadline to close. He was able to meet all my needs and close within my deadline. He went above and beyond the call of duty to get me exactly what I wanted. I will be sure to use him again with all my buying and selling needs and recommend him to all my friends and family. He gets an A+ in my book. Thank you David!
David was a great realtor! I highly reccommend him! He sold our house the first day for over asking price. He was also always available to show us homes in the area we were looking. The timing worked out perfect for closing on our new home!
