There is no greater compliment than having a repeat buyer or seller. I’d love having repeat clients because I know that they’ve trusted be enough to do the job once, they know I will do an exceptional job the next time. From real estate investments, first-time homebuyers, to repeat buyers, having someone come back to you for the same job, means that they were satisfied before, and they know I will get the job done this time.
“I have done several real estate transactions with Dale and would highly recommend him for any Bay Area transaction. He is very knowledgeable, professional, energetic and responsive- and he is also very fun to work with!
