  • David listed and sold my home

      If you want to buy or sell a house in Crocker Highlands, go directly to Dave Higgins and no further. He and his team are THE team to work with. There is no one better that knows the market (past, present, and future), provides honest and trustworthy advice, and that has a team of talented professionals who take the stress and worry out of your hands. Why take any chances with an ordinary agent when for the same "price" you can go with #1? Dave Higgins will get it done. Follow his advice and minimize the emotional world of selling or buying a house.

    • David listed and sold my home

        He was very knowledgeable about the market and negotiated a great sale for us

      • David listed and sold my home

          We were thoroughly impressed by Dave and his team. From our very 1st. meeting to the sale of our house (after 6 days on the market!) the team was on point with all of their advice and council. Dave provided a detailed plan, including timing and price estimates, and had a long list of people to do the work required to prep the house for sale. We took all the advice they gave and had a better result than we had dare hope. Dave and the team made the whole experience drama-free and efficient. Not always easy as we were out of state and in a different time zone. We highly recommend Dave for your real estate needs in Oakland.

        • David listed and sold my home

            We started the process of listing our house before shelter in place and never anticipated the process would get too challenging in a neighborhood where homes sell like clockwork with multiple offers and way over asking. Of course that all changed in a hot minute! There are plenty of realtors in the area but there is only one Dave. We chose him not simply because he's the top agent but because of his personal attention to working with the clients and his accountability to do right by his clients. We created a brand new strategy to list and price a property in a time when open houses couldn't happen and Dave was able to move lighting fast to help us prepare our house to be ready to sell. Dave understands that timing matters and you have to stay nimble to be positioned for anything that comes up. While the playbook evolved it never felt like we were hoping and guessing. Dave leveraged all of his experience to help us get things done. And a few days later, without any headache Dave presented us a non-contingent offer that was too easy to say yes to. We've since recommended Dave to multiple families considering a sale and would use him again without question. He was always available and was incredibly well thought out in how he uniquely approaches each situation. It also felt great to work with Dave and not get lost in some massive support team.

          • David listed and sold my home

              In a period of Covid-19 induced uncertainty, Dave guided a smooth and successful sale of our much loved Crocker Highlands home. Dave drew on his years of experience (going back to the crises of 9/11 and 2008) to steady our nerves and help us make the right decisions. We found him supportive and compassionate to our concerns and never pushy. As there was no playbook for this particular moment in time, Dave reimagined the way we would present and market our house and made a 3-D video tour and ran virtual open houses. The marketing photos were beautiful and made us want to go back to living there. Dave’s colleagues and team (painters, landscaper, stagers, etc.) were professional, responsive and effective. Prior to selling our home, as one of our neighborhood’s most respected realtors, we always expected to use Dave as our agent and we are grateful we made that choice.

            • My wife and I have purchased or sold 16 properties since 2002. Over that time Dave Higgins has been far and away the most knowledgeable agent we have worked with. Whether buying or selling, he has demonstrated his superiority over the agents on the other end of the transaction. On the buying end, Dave negotiated a 10% price reduction on a recent property purchase with problems. The costs to bring the property up to standard will be far less than the credit he negotiated. He is currently selling a premium Piedmont property for us and his input on staging and timing have been invaluable. His assistance has made the property even more desirable. We are currently in the market for more property, and I trust no one more than Dave to evaluate the possibilities. If you are buying or selling in the east bay you would be making a big mistake if you don't contact Dave Higgins.

              - 02/24/2018 - Richard. Bought and sold a home in 2017 in Oakland, CA 94611.
            • When we first called Dave to discuss possibly listing our house, we didnt know anything about him except that he had sold many houses in the neighborhood quickly and for well over asking. I remember he was driving but he pulled off the road to talk. I liked that he didnt let his calls roll into voicemail, which was indicative of his work ethic. At this point, we had already interviewed 3 other realtors that we knew from a few years back (and whose work we admired) and were very close to making a decision so my call to Dave was almost an after-thought, but our first conversation put him front and center in the running. It was the way he expressed appreciation for the call and his attentiveness during the conversation that set him apart. He was obviously very successful due to his sale record, but he did not have a shred of ego about him. He was earnest in pursuing the work, showed great attention to details with his questions and was both very respectful and personable. His humility, attention to detail and fun personality would remain consistent throughout our collaboration. In addition, Dave had quite a talent for knowing exactly what needed to be done to present our house in the best light and was quite ambitious in his vision for the house, despite the fact that his ambitious plans would require a lot of work on his part. In this, he was again unique. He just seemed genuinely excited about the house transformation and very confident about its success, which was both infectious and reassuring. I cant say there werent bumps on the road given the scale of the prep work, the tight timeline and the numerous contractors involved, but Daves commitment to the vision, his coolness under pressure and his ability to diffuse conflicts and resolve issues made it easier. Throughout the process, he made client service a priority and strived to exceed our expectations and we appreciated that very much.Less

              - 08/08/2018 - Unknown. Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Crocker Highlands, Oakland, CA.
            • We loved working with Dave and his team! They are incredibly knowledgable of the East Bay market - what people are looking for and how to sell a home. We had a very short timeline to get our house ready and on the market and Dave and his team came in and worked really hard and fast to get it ready. Our house sold fast and for way over! We definitely recommend Dave and his team and will continue to work with them in the future.

              - 08/20/2018 - Dana. Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Montclair, Oakland, CA.
            • Dave and his team are the best! They sold my condo well above what we asked him to sell it for, and took care of the renovations so we didn't have to. I recommend Dave to anyone in need of a realtor.

              - 11/28/2018 - Ben. Sold a Condo in 2018 in Oakland, CA.
            • Dave and his team were super knowledgeable about the market and positioned us very well to make a winning bid. They were a pleasure to work withsuper nice, communicative and flexible. As a first time home-buyer in a super competitive market, I could have found it to be a really stressful experience, but working with them made it seem easy!
