If you need a realtor whose easy to work with, knowledgeable, and who really knows the market in Santa Barbara you should talk to David. He took the time to understand my situation and saw our whole transaction through with a personal touch. He and his mother Regina are saved in my contacts because I will surely be doing business with them again.
I have to say - we just got lucky finding David!! Purchasing a house in Santa Barbara turned out to be the easiest experience I could have ever imagined!! From our very first appointment David was paying such close attention to all of our needs and requests, that it took him only one day of showing us available properties to find the perfect house we absolutely fell in love with! There was no task small or large that he wasn't available for, any time of the day! Literally! Whatever contingencies needed to be removed or obstacles to be solved - all solutions were found, disagreements reconciled and everything was done with ease and positive attitude.
HIGHEST MARKS!!! The best agent ever. Highly recommend.
First Time Buyer
We worked with David for about six months looking for our home. We had pretty specific criteria we were looking for, and at times it felt we were never going to find something we loved. But David tirelessly stuck with us throughout, and when he sent us the early listing for our home, we knew it was special.
As soon we saw it we were in love, and David helped us put in an offer the next day. He made the offer process and all of escrow super smooth, walking us through the inspections and paperwork. He was a consistent, reliable advocate, and we trusted that he would fight for us when needed.
I would recommend David to anyone looking for a home in the Santa Barbara area!
Couldn't have asked for more :-)
We hired David Magid to sell our house, and he did it in the best way. David knew every feature of the property to a minute detail, and presented it to buyers with knowledge and enthusiasm. He is attentive, easy to get a hold of, competent and with thorough follow ups, never short of time for questions or answers, professional, and a great communicator. At the end, you will not regret if you hire David to be you listing or buying agent.
Being in a competitive housing market like Santa Barbara County, having an agent who is knowledgeable, honest, and reputable is something extremely important when trying to find the right house at the right price. As first time homebuyers, having someone we could trust and provide us guidance was important for us as well. David Magid was all of those things for us, and more. David's skills and knowledge of the area and industry were by far the best we came across in our home buying journey. He was always available throughout the entire process, and as first time home buyers trying to navigate the search of a home, and escrow process, David was by our side and available the entire time (and extremely patient as well). David was always honest with us, fair, and we trusted his feedback (which saved us from a potentially horrible home and deal, which we will forever be grateful for). David also had very helpful recommendations for us for other services when we needed more assistance or help. Overall, we could not recommend David highly enough for his above and beyond service he provided, and if you're looking for the best look no further, as when we look for our next home, we will only work with David Magid!
Couldn't be happier :-)
From the moment we decided to work with David Magid on selling our home he worked immensely on advertising, scheduling all reports needed and held open houses. David is wonderful on communicating and making sure we knew every detail about listing our home for sale. With David holding open houses and scheduling appointments to show our home, we had three offers over asking price within nine days of being on the market. We highly recommend David to be your realtor, you wont regret it!
Thanks Dave!! - Veronica & Tommy Lutz
We used Dave to help us purchase our forever home. He helped us in the search for at least two years, helping us make 3 offers. The home we decided on, we were initially not going to look at. Dave worked his magic and convinced us to take a look. I am extremely happy we looked and very grateful for the service we received. We couldn't be happier with our purchase.
He will be my Santa Barbara realtor for life. David was extremely helpful throughout our home buying process. We were looking to buy our first home in the $700k to $900k range single family home, although David represents buyers and sellers of much more expensive houses too. He had a fantastic feel for the market. He knew which homes were priced well, which we could offer less, and the timing of the competitive Santa Barbara real estate market. He is a great communicator no matter the method (e.g. phone, text, in person, on vacation). Perhaps most helpful was him moving things along during a difficult title process. We were desperately trying to move into our new home as our lease agreement was ending. His persistence and patience through the whole process was way more than I expected. David honored a credit through work despite not being part of the partnership, saving us money. David and I continue to be friends today. I have referred all of my young professional friends to David with confidence.
Lucky to have David!
We built our house in Santa Barbara twenty-seven years ago. When it was time to sell we were fortunate to choose David Magid to facilitate the process. From the outset he presented a full analysis of comparables in our area, our responsibilities as sellers and the obligations of a potential buyer. He is very skilled technically and devised a polished advertising plan which turned out to be very effective. The house sold quickly and as that process progressed he kept us informed and helped us deal with many details involved in vacating a home. He is very much the professional, but always accessible and responsive to our concerns. We recommend him highly.
Grateful to have David in our corner
We worked with David to sell and purchase our new home. He navigated us through every step, careful with details and follow through. He was always willing to see us in person to discuss questions, while doing so, even lending a hand to help with moving. David is also a genuinely good person. Over the course of working with, he became part of our family. We are so happy with our new home and are so grateful to him.
2 succesful transactions with more to come!
David helped us purchase our home a few months back and we couldn't be more pleased with his level of professionalism and attentiveness. David listened to our needs and wants and worked with us to get us the deal that we were comfortable with. He is always easy to get a hold of and super quick to respond which we appreciated.
We are now in the process of selling our condo, and again chose to work with David! Repeat customers is the best proof of someone doing an awesome job. Keep up the good work David and I am sure you will have a long and successful career in Santa Barbara! I would recommend David to anyone looking for a professional, honest, and easy to work with real estate agent!
Amazing and Patient!
I want to write this review to help people that are looking for a great realtor in Santa Barbara. I met David while looking for a rental, and even though he doesn't work directly with rentals, he was still helpful in guiding me to the right people and property managers. After a week, I changed my mind and decided to buy a condo, so I came back to David and asked him to be my realtor. Since that moment he started and never stopped working until I found the condo I wanted. He found me a beautiful home by the beach and after having our offer accepted he left no stone unturned throughout the process. He knows this industry very well and knew how to resolve and overcome all matters/issues that come up in a transaction. He is sincere, punctual, honest, efficient, and very professional. He successfully closed the transaction early and even helped me after closing with finding contractors, setting up utilities, and making sure everything was set up for me to be happy. I would recommend David for any Real Estate needs.
