More about David Balfour

I don’t need to be the "biggest" Realtor in town...just the best. To be the BEST Realtor for you, I must succeed in ways beyond simply helping you sell or buy a home. I must provide my services in the manner YOU prefer, communicate how YOU wish to do business, and, honor the priorities YOU have established for your transaction. To be the best, I must be YOUR best. You have many choices for a Realtor in middle TN. Some promote their impressive sales rank, such as "#1 in the county", or "we sell a home every day", etc. Or, maybe you see extensive advertising from a "team" of Realtors, essentially suggesting that that bigger = better. I'm not knocking them; I just feel discerning Sellers and Buyers appreciate a personalized, more organic process. After all, it is YOUR HOME we are talking about here. I personally stay with you at every step in your transaction, providing my personal ...

  • David listed and sold my home

      Outstanding agent who represented my interests professionally. He was always available and responded quickly regarding any concern I had.

    • David listed and sold my home

        David was so wonderful and made the purchase of my new home a smooth and seamless one!

      • David helped me buy a home

          David has been a wonderful guide through this arduous process of an interstate move. There is no way we could have come through without his guidance and help behind the scenes!! Your patience has been immeasurable! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, David!! The Lord bless you in all your endeavors! Sincerely, Peter, Susan, and Rory Sellgren, formerly of Pennsylvania

        • David Balfour helped me find my home and stayed with me through every detail of the transaction, even though it wasn't a huge commission. I found him to be professional and responsive to what I asked for. When he was with me, the phone went in the pocket and I was his only client. That's rare in these connected days. I was happy with the properties he showed me, and appreciated his knowledge of each neighborhood's characteristics. In one case, I liked a home but he told me about the streets filling with curbside parking at night. Driving by the next evening, He was right. It was a totally different effect. Just one example of his working extra to help me find the right place, not just chasing a commission.Call David. You'll like him and he'll take good care of you.

          - John Frank - Buyer
        • I found David online and he had several listings in the area I was looking for. This sale was probably the most trying for him! He was so patient and supportive even when I was ready to throw in the towel. He helped me over come every obstacle we faced and even came out of his own pocket for me. I am so grateful for David helping me find a home for me and my son. I wouldn't tell anyone to use anybody else!

          - Susanne Smith - Buyer
        • David took over the sale and purchase of our homes after some bad experiences with other real estate agents. He handled the transition with humility and expertise. This was the first time we sold a home and I would advice all people to use David. There are tons of agents in our city but only a handful have the experience and forethought to do a client justice. I would tell you David is in the top of the most experienced agents on the market. He is honest and always working. One prime is example is David, his wife and I redesigned a layout in one of our rooms at 11 o clock at night because we had a showing the next day! Use David you will get a Honest Man and a Great Realtor!

          - Jonathan Taylor - Seller
        • David helped us out in the purchase of our home as well as the sale of our home. We were very satisfied in both situations. Highly recommend David...great agent.

          - Vicki McNeal - Seller
        • Davids market knowledge is second to none! He worked deligently to ensure we got the right house for us, at the right price, guiding us through the buying process and keeping us informed. Along the way, you make a friend with David, and even consider using someone else!!

          - Ricky Riley - Buyer
        • Great attention to detail, knows the community and builders, honest, flexible with times, followed up and followed through with everything.

          - Chris Warley - Buyer
        • We moved to TN from the west coast so communication was critical. David understood our needs and found the house for us on the first trip. This was great, only one house hunting trip. David handled everything locally including repairs, paperwork etc. so we did not have to come to TN again until we moved here. It was worry free for us while we moved. He delivered everything you would expect for a great agent.

          - Gary Price - Buyer
        • David went over and above helping me market the house using an aerial view with his drone. He and his wife helped me stage the house because at the time I was physically unable. He sold our house very fast!

          - Sharon Taylor - Seller
        • I would recommend David and his staff. It was a very difficult sale due to the incompetence of the buyer and their team. But in the end David came thru and I got the desired amount I was looking for. David delivered a great product that showcased my home in the best possible light to potential buyers.

          - Henry Detgen - Seller
        • David was incredible. As being a first time home buyer he went over and beyond to make sure we got what we wanted and to make the process s smooth as possible. He made sure to inform us on everything we needed to know and made sure to answer any and all questions that we had. Never made us feel like he was just trying to make a sale. He was very professional and knowledgable about the business, and right there with for every step of the way. I would definitely recommend David!

          - Courtney Bonner - Buyer
        • David Balfour was with me every step of the way as I bought a home for the very first time. He knew I could afford more, but let me guide the price range choice. He guided me through selecting a Mortgage company (I got an amazing rate), advised me on choices like 15 year or 30. He wasn't shy about pointing out the pros and coms of neighborhoods, even at the property that was my 1st choice. There have been NO surprises in the time since I moved in thanks to David. Bottom lime, David Balfour is a very knowledgeable, well connected agent. He's also more interested in your experience as a buyer than he is in padding his commissions. I enjoyed every minute of our transaction and was grateful I found a Man with integrity to help me. No doubt I'm going back to David next time I buy or sell Real Estate in the Nashville market.

        • My sister and I's first time home buying experience was definitely a unique one! But with David Balfour's patience along with a few rejections he found the perfect home for us. The sellers had my sister, David, and I jump thru many hoops before the final paperwork was drawn up, but David hung in there with us and made sure we we came out protected and all was fair. His dedication to us didn't stop at the final signing. He kept his word to us and came out to the house to help with the all the rennovations! We have also ran into quite a few other issues after buying the house...I have called David numerous times and he's come out to the house personally with his own tools to help out, as well as given us great referrals when it was beyond his limits. David Balfour is hands down the BEST realtor I know of in the Rutherford County area! He will ALWAYS be my first referral to anyone in the market for buying or selling a property. Love him!!

          - Tiffany Bonner - Buyer
        • David was amazing to work with. My husband worked weekend days and I worked week nights and he was able to work around both of our schedules. He went above and beyond for us. If not for him and his negotiation skills and connections, we would not be in our current home. He was respectful of our budget and our time. He was a joy to be around both professionally and personally and he made house hunting enjoyable with slim to no stress. When the time comes for us to upgrade our home and sell this one, he will be the first one we contact!

          - Katie Engler - Buyer
        • David was an exceptional agent who exhibited outstanding command of the real estate market. He listed and sold my home quickly and kept me informed of all offers and profit projections in a timely manner. He was accessible day and evenings as well as weekends. I highly recommend this very impressive agent.

          - Fred Hamilton - Seller
        • David found some highly motivated buyers willing to pay above the appraised value of our house. He quickly found another home for us and negotiated a great deal on the purchase price. When the time comes to sell and buy again, we would definitely use David. He's open, communicative and can be trusted.

          - Tim and Phyllis Moore - Buyers and Sellers
        • David was super helpful and resourceful in helping my husband and I find our first home! He was patient with us and worked with us every step of the way. We highly recommend David to anyone trying to buy or sell!

          - Ashley Clark - Buyer
        • He goes above & beyond to get you the best deal in the fastest way possible. I'm in L.A. & he recently sold a house for me in Murfreesboro, he had to be my body double in order to visit the property to make sure that everything was in order. He had to do this for me multiple times since I'm so far away. There were a few hiccups (not his fault at all), he navigated thru those hiccups to sell this property, all in all it was a smooth transaction, couldn't of done it without him!

          - Humberto Martin - Seller
        • I highly recommend David Balfour to help you with all your real estate needs. He has been our realtor for the last 12+ years and has helped us buy and sell several homes during that time. David intimately knows the Midde Tennessee real estate market. He takes the time to understand the objectives and does whatever he can to exceed expectations. He has never led us wrong when determining a listing price, selecting the best offer, or making an offer on a home. I cant say enough about David! He is dependable, trustworthy, fair, and takes a genuine interest in his clients. He now brokers the office he has worked at for years in Murfreesboro, and has a great network of people who work with him. Ive recommended him to my friends and will continue to do so!

          - Katie Getzinger - Buyer and Seller
        • We bought and sold a house using David. He is very knowledgeable of the current market........basically, he knows his stuff. I would highly recommend him for what ever your Real Estate needs are.

          - Randy McNeal - Seller
        • David listed and sold 2 of our personal residential homes both within 3 weeks from listing to contract. In fact, our second home had a contract within the first day it was on the market. David advised my husband and I throughout the entire process. His knowledge of his profession is excellent. Additionally, David represented us on both of our purchases with ease. He made selling a house fun and exciting and made buying even more exciting. He took care of us as if we were family, so much so, that even today we still communicate with David due to our trusting friendship we developed throughout our property purchases and sales. He will, without a doubt, continue to be our real estate representative.

          - Sheila Ivey - Buyer and Seller
        • David helped me buy once and sell twice. He was always professional, earnest, & easy to work with. When selling, he took great photos & had the house listed promptly. I immediately saw a great deal of action. When buying, he kept my budget & needs in mind. He also pointed out flaws or challenges for me to consider. I felt like he wanted me to find a home Id love vs just make a quick sale. If I hadnt moved out of state, Id use him again!

          - CJ Kiekens - Buyer and Seller
        • If any one is looking for a Real Estate Agent David Balfour is the one to contact. I work for an out of state investor and I contacted David to market four properties in Tennessee. From the very start David was aggressive in getting the properties rehabbed and on the market. These homes were built about 2006, had been totally destroyed by tenants, David managed the rehab and had them ready for market in less then four weeks and we had contracts in 10 days and they closed with in 14 to 21 days. Could not be happier with David's ability to market and sell real estate. What a fantastic experience

          - Janet Wheeler - Seller
        • David is a customer friendly realtor who truly cares about his clients. He asks questions to get an idea of what you want in a home. Where you want to live? What items are deal breakers and areas of flexibility. David pre-qualifies clients so when you see something you like you can make an offer. Great person to work with.

        • I will most definitely recommend David Balfour to any Buyer or Seller I come in contact with. He was very knowledgeable of my target area to purchase a home. He knew of listings that met my requirements before they hit the market. He was extremely patient and diligent. We looked at so many houses. He even recommended a lender that was able to provide financing for a first time home buyer and single mom. It was such a great experience!

          - Susanne Wilkes - Buyer and Seller
        • This real estate agent is TOP NOTCH! He's always on top of the game. Knows all the ropes in the business and very trust worthy! I could always count on him to give me the details straight and not try and sugar coat! I recommend him to everyone I know who is selling , buying or renting. Now a days it's hard to find a true, honest agent! I've worked with him 3 times and every time was a pleasure!

          - Cora Fowler - Buyer and Seller
        • How do you List a property for sale, prepare the property -located out of state - for market, and sell the property in just 1 Month for more than the asking Price? You start by contacting David Balfour. David provided me with excellent service and professionalism. He was knowledgeable, understanding, honest and extremely thorough.

Thank you Mr. David Balfour, for what had to be, the smoothest long distance closing and sale in history.
