Testimonials for David Alan Baker | Laveen & South Phoenix Realtor
My overall expirence with David Baker is that he very perfessional, very knowledgable, very caring, trustworthy, kept me updated with information when it changed, and did everything in a timely matter.
We were so thankful to have David in our corner for our short sale. He knew exactly what to do and how to do it! The process was painless because he managed all of the details flawlessly.
David is not only a great agent, he is now a friend. We appreciate his hard work and dedication. –
David – I cannot thank you enough. Without you, my only option was downhill!! The last guy I dealt with was a nightmare – literally. My personal thank you for being so patient, diligent, and easy to work with. You’ve saved my security clearance and therefore my job.
I would not only recommend, but insist that anyone I know or that my daughter knows, use you for any real estate transactions. Thanks so very much for your effort!
David Baker was the best agent we have dealt with. Through the buying process he kept me informed and always answered his phone. This was a small dollar amount so it was nice to see him take time with me when he wasn’t getting a large commission.
Having just moved to the Phoenix area at the beginning of August, David came highly recommended from a friend of ours who had also purchased a house through him. His knowledge of the area, along with his ability to find my wife and I exactly what we were looking for was, given the competitive nature of the present market, next to amazing. We were able to move in quickly and, to top it all off, he got us the home at almost 90% of market value! Recommend him? You bet!
