"I cannot say enough to express how positive I feel about the experience of working with David Bode. I interviewed two realtors and chose him because he seemed more aggressive and knowledgeable, and my first impression was confirmed many times along the way. He was available quickly via email or phone, almost immediately. His advice was spot on and, although it sometimes was at odds with what I thought the right decision might be, his advice proved to be the proper course of action. His experience was evident. I am quite satisfied with the deal he put together, and have no doubts it would not have been nearly as successful if I had not engaged his services. I would highly recommend him without any reservation."
