"As first-time homebuyers, we had some amount of trepidation about this process. We knew it was time to buy and had identified a few potential neighborhoods. A family friend referred us to the Dave Knight RE Team. In our first meeting, we presented a difficult situation: We needed to move out of our current home and were on a short timeline, we had a modest budget and a very long list of needs including needing a property with a guest house for soon-to-be-retired grandparents. They never flinched. He listened, asked key questions, and shared his philosophy for serving clients which resonated with us. We felt confident they are the agent for us and within 24 hrs of our first sit-down, he began to communicate with us about potential homes! The team shined in a number of ways.

We felt confident they are the agent for us and within 24 hrs of our first sit-down, he began to communicate with us about potential homes! The team shined in a number of ways. First, Dave is a good teacher. He affirmed the things we understood about real estate but also carefully corrected the misunderstandings we had that were confusing us and the process. Though we were first-timers, he respected our intelligence and trusted us to learn what was necessary to make our deal happen. This was important to help us develop the patience necessary to see our deal through. Second, Dave is an excellent negotiator. (My lender commented that he'd never in all his years seen anyone as good as them. Buying a home is a process that has many twists and turns. Dave walked us through each stage from shopping, to making an offer, on through Escrow. We were always fully informed buyers, duly diligent, and always in the best possible position, we could be in as a result of Dave and his interactions with the sellers he engaged. Third, and maybe most importantly, Dave is an open and honest communicator and a man of character. He never pushed us towards a purchase that was beyond (or problematically-beneath) our budget just to make a deal. During each of the key moments of our process, Tim was available personally to talk, explain and/or reason decisions out with us. We never felt like we had to wonder what was going on, interpret silence, or translate the tone of ambiguous emails. When possible, Tim called. When impossible, we texted. Often. We were fully informed. We learned a lot about real estate through our relationship with them. We were in Escrow twice – and those experiences were instructive. Escrow fell through for reasons beyond our control – as well as that of our RE team. Ultimately, while we felt good about those two homes, the third time was the charm. Looking back, it's clear that all of the experiences leading up to our final purchase were a part of the overall process. We found the perfect home, meeting all of our needs, with the perfect buyers, at just the right time. Our journey was long. Longer than we would have liked. But Madeline (Operations Team), and the Dave Knight Team never wavered. Never made us feel like we were being unreasonable. They stuck by us and supported us all the way through to victory. My wife and I highly recommend them as an agent. If you're looking for experienced, powerful professionals who can get the job done in a way that's careful and responsive choose the Dave Knight RE Team."

"I honestly cannot give high enough praise for the team at Dave Knight. From our very first meeting with Esther Clauson and Amber Waas we knew we were in good hands. There are a few things that I believe are critical in a real estate agent, Industry knowledge, communication, network and vendor connections, a solid team that works together to get their client the greatest possible success. Dave Knight Realty and the team with Esther delivered all of this and more. Our sale was incredibly complex with COVID constraints, multi-state move, 7 animals and two adults, and a restricted schedule between two employers, and urgent timelines…to say the least, it was overwhelming. Amber was hands-on and helped us every step of the way from strategy to best position the house to seeing everything done with frugality and exacting standards. Every question we had was answered in a timely manner and the …

Our sale was incredibly complex with COVID constraints, multi-state move, 7 animals and two adults, and a restricted schedule between two employers, and urgent timelines…to say the least, it was overwhelming. Amber was hands-on and helped us every step of the way from strategy to best position the house to seeing everything done with frugality and exacting standards. Every question we had was answered in a timely manner and the advice was spot on. When we drove away on March 12, I had zero doubt we were in good hands and the success of the sale just proves it. There are very few teams I would trust handing the keys to my house to and feel confident they would “get it all done”. My husband will agree, I'm slightly a control freak, and like to be involved in pretty much anything that impacts our lives. Amber handled the vendor interviews, sent us quotes, had furniture and other things we abandoned hauled away, the landscaping cleaned up and our house painting and carpeting done by the time it was staged it was like a Better Homes and Gardens featured spread. I cannot wrap up without mentioning Madeline Herlache. The management of documents, offers, and everything data was nothing short of miraculous. We had 30 offers and had a beautifully organized and succinctly summarized spreadsheet comparing all the offers turned around in hours. 30 offers would have been a nightmare to unwind, but Esther walked us through every single point from offer strategies, offer “stickiness” and risks in any of the offers. In the end, we accepted an offer that wasn’t our highest $$, but still well over asking, it went through smoothly, and we closed in 2 weeks. At the end of the day, there are few teams that could have lived up to my exacting standards of service, and Esther and the team exceeded my expectations. For anyone living in the Burbank, La Crescenta valley, and Pasadena areas, you are in good hands with Dave Knight Realty."

"I was referred to Dave Knight’s Team by the Dave Ramsey ELP network. I interviewed their office multiple times, as well as spoke directly to three references, to get to better understand their process, their capabilities, and whether I felt comfortable with having them represent me. It was very important to me that I felt they were trustworthy and would align with my values and goals. In the end, I chose the Dave Knight Team because of the importance they clearly placed on their integrity and high-performance standards. I really appreciated the team approach. Dave, J.D. worked with me in finding and negotiating the terms of the sale, and Madeline Herlache, along with David Way, supported the escrow process.

The operations team members, Madeline and David, were very effective at navigating through the escrow process, keeping it on track, and addressing all my questions and concerns in a very timely fashion. Dave Knight said to me when I spoke with him, Don’t choose us for me, choose me for my team. And the team was great. I am very happy with the purchase of my new home in Pasadena and am grateful to all members of the Dave Knight Team for assisting me in achieving my goal of purchasing my first home."

"We purchased our first home in 2017 and we're so glad we partnered with Dave Knight and his team. First of all, they were recommended by friends that I trust, who had recently purchased their first home. We needed our own space as we were busting at the seams with our 1bd apartment with a 4-year-old and dog. Our budget was small in comparison to LA home prices, but we were never judged. Chris Delamartar did an awesome job of showing us options we could afford. When an amazing home opened up, 3 blocks from my parents and with a yard, Chris and the team jumped on the offer. Within 3 day's our offer was selected over 2 other offers. The knowledgeable team walked us through everything: negotiations, inspections, and building a relationship with the seller. By the end, we felt so close to Chris that we had immediate withdrawals when we weren't on the phone multiple times a day. I would defin…

Thanks again for taking such good care of us! Update: It’s now been 4 years since we purchased our home and we decided to look into refinancing. Esther Clauson of Dave Knight Realty was able to recommend Kal Antoun, mortgage lender, who gave us great support and helped us lock in the awesome rates. Thank you Dave Knight and team for continuously being there for us!"

"My husband and I recently sold our townhome and were thoroughly impressed with the Dave Knight real estate team! They did an incredible job of photographing, videotaping and listing our home. We were truly amazed at the final product. It indeed helped to sell our home in a very short period of time. The team walked with us through the entire escrow process, which went off without a hitch thanks to their helpful direction every step of the way. We literally did not have to think too much about anything as they were on top of everything. And we actually closed escrow in the expected time period! They also helped us to find a rental home to move into for a short period of time. The agents are knowledgeable and were very patient with our questions and concerns.

All of the folks on his team are of high character and integrity which we strongly value. We can easily recommend the Dave Knight team for your buying/selling needs and look forward to working with them again in the next few months to help us find us forever home!"
