David J Palma's Reviews & Ratings

David J Palma

    • David did a fantastic job selling our home! He paid attention to detail when we were preparing the house for sale. He made suggestions about how to arrange the furnishings so the interior of the house looked terrific. We were so happy that we did home and pest inspections prior to the house going on the market so we could address issues ahead of time. It was very smart of David to encourage us to do that. I would highly recommend David for selling or buying a home.

    • I met David approximately one year ago after deciding to sell my rental in Ukiah. I initially wanted to speak to 3 realtors before making a decision then select from the 3. I met with David for 1/2 hour and decided he was the guy. I don't claim to be an expert regarding judging someones character but I do have 45 years experience working working in the behavioral health and developmental disabilities system. This includes acute psychiatric admissions to residential care. I definitely would consider referring David to others and have already done so. It's my opinion that David definitely deserves a five star rating as indicated above. - Lafayette Clark

    • I worked with David to buy my first house and he did an absolutely fantastic job. I just moved to the area several months ago and had no local knowledge at all. He was instrumental in helping me find a beautiful (and affordable) house in a great neighborhood. David was always extremely responsive when I had questions or concerns. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking to purchase a house

    • I was moving from Oakland to the area from the new job. They were really helpful in finding me the home I needed for me and my animal menagerie. We made good use of my time as I had to travel from the Bay Area and needed to find a home to move in as soon as possible before the new school year. Can't believe we were able to accomplish this and while I'm still surrounded by boxes I'm ready to start work on time

    • David is easy to work with, a true full-time professional, and does things that unsuccessful realtors don't do.He's knowledgeable, eager to do the right thing, and pays attention, and the best thing yet, he found me the right house, at the right price.

    • I have found David to be the best realtor I have ever worked with. His knowledge is extensive, and he thoroughly understands the housing market here in Mendocino County. He listened to my needs, and also offered a superb range of experts to help me sell my property, from arranging a professional photographer to take photos for online advertising, to having the house professinally staged, arranging for inspections, and so on. The house sold very quickly, and for more than the asking price. David responded quickly and efficiently to the few questions I had about the sale. He is courteous and very professional. I am more than satisfied with David, and highly recommend him

    • David Palma and Palma Properties did a SUPERLATIVE job helping our family market and sell our beautiful ranch in Northern California while we were living halfway across the continent. David kept us in focus on our goal at all times with his practicality, assisted on inspections beyond our expectations, provided wise counsel regarding every aspect of the process. David's expertise, resourcefulness and collegial endeavors served us well start to finish! His team members are exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful as well. Additionally, it's a lot of fun and a relief to work with David Palma and his group--let them facilitate your real estate transactions whenever possible! Feel free to view David's work and my property website eelriverbendranch on google.

    • This was a great experience, he really worked hard for us on selling our house and made very easy on the purchase of our new home. I will definitely recommend him and if need be I will work with him again.

    • Instantly liked David when we met look at one of his listings. When that wasn't the one he did not hesitate to show others the same day. We ended up getting a house that was not his listing but he worked with the listing agent and represented us without hesitation. Great follow through and very happy with our purchase. Thank you David!

    • I worked with David on the sale of my mom's house in Santa Rosa. There was a lot of work to be done on the house before putting it on the market. David was very helpful in obtaining the needed estimates. Following up on pest inspections and getting the house sold within 2 weeks of putting the home on the market as well as selling the home for over the asking price.I would highly recommend David as your real estate agent, as he is a go getter and he aims to get the job done. I enjoyed working with David as my sales agent

    • David Palma rocked it! He had fantastic staging suggestions and knew who the best expert for each part of the process. He was on top of communication and negotiations. He was also very helpful and involved. We sold in 12 days.

    • David was very easy to work with. He was patient with us as many years have past since last home sell or purchase. He was attentive to our requests and made a stressful time be more manageable. His team were just as receptive towards us.

      - David Vest
    • Highly recommend, he is currently helping my family and I sell and buy a new home and making it as stress free as possible for us! Couldn't of found a better realtor he doesn't just see us as clients but treats us like family. He cares about our needs and concerns. Is constantly giving us great advice and always updating us on progress. Always letting us know of any ideas he may have to get our house sold faster. We couldn't be happier and pleased with his performance and experience!

    • This is the second time we've worked with David, and as always he was a pro! Helpful, available, and gave us great advice and assistance on getting our house ready to sell. He definitely will go the extra mile and happily answer / investigates questions whether big or small.

    • We would like to strongly recommend Mr. Palma and his team for realtor services for any potential clients in the Ukiah/Mendocino county region. He was always professional, pleasant and responsive to all our questions and concerns as the sale progressed. There were multiple family members involved in the sale that lived at geographically diverse locations nationally. This required him to make multiple contacts and orchestrate conference calls to help in the decision making process. He was able to guide us through some complicated decisions and he assisted us greatly in the days near the conclusion of the sale. His ideas for staging the property and the photographic presentation on the website certainly helped make the sale in a timely fashion. I would trust him for any future needs and would recommend his service to other family members.

    • David and his business partner Natalie made a great team. They both had very positive attitudes and were easy to work with. They were readily available and wanted to make a good impression with marketing strategies. They went out of their way to share ideas, identify any problems, and even talked to the neighbors about the listing. They used professional photographer for listing photos that made the house shine. They worked well with the house stager and the house sold after the first showing. I would recommend them.

    • Upon meeting David the first time, he truly listened to our needs. He told us that he had a property in mind for us that had not yet been listed. His positive, warm, down to earth attidude quickly drew us in. His knowledge of the area helped us feel guided, since we are from the Bay Area and somewhat new to NorCal. A week later David called us and scheduled a tour of the home he had mentioned. As we entered this property, we knew it was our dream house. How did he know? David is as sharp as they come, a go getter and very hard working. Every step of the way through the process was magically effortless. We were in our beautiful new home within a month! Listening skills are an A+.... Mr. Palma has a bright, successful career ahead of him and well deserved. A million thanks David and best of everything to you. Debbie & Reza

    • Simply could not have asked for a better buying and selling experience! David was a pleasure to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional with a laid back and very friendly attitude. David is unlike any other real estate agent that I have ever worked with. He truly listens to the clients concerns and goals whether they are buying or selling and does everything he can to help them achieve those goals and help them get to where they want to be. David is the hardest working man in real estate! I definitely would highly recommend David and Palma Properties. Who says real estate can't be fun?

    • David was everything you could ask for from an agent, and more! He helped us navigate through the process of buying our house with skill and ease. He was with us for every house we toured and gave honest advice and excellent recommendations. He answered all our questions, helped us communicate with our lender and title company, recommended local and reliable contractors and even personally assisted with some repairs. I can't recommend David's services highly enough!

    • We enjoyed working with David. It was our first home purchase and he took his time working with us - from the elemental aspects of inspection to the offer negotiations - even though he was a dual agent - we felt our needs came first. There were tough moments of indecision and doubt for us - and he gave us our space. Had he pushed, I am sure we would have walked - but now we have a great home and he even after the sale has helped refer areas serves that we could not have gotten without the insider angle. He continues to be a friend - he really is true to his word - "Why can't real estate be fun!?"

    • I used David Palma as my realtor to purchase my first home last year. I was very nervous about going through the home buying process. However David made it extremely easy and stress free for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone trying to purchase or sell a home. I will definitely be using him again in the future.

    • David Palma is a very professional agent. He has listed and sold two homes for me. He was also my agent when I purchased the home I now reside in. I have been extremely happy and satisfied with the service and results of all the transactions we had together. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and associates. In addition, David has a very positive attitude and projects the confidence that your property will sell and at a competitive price.

    • Where do I start, David is a down to earth kinda guy . Very friendly he was more then just your average realstate person he comes off as more as friend & I really liked that about him he made me feel comfortable. That was very important to me as in the passed I dealt with many real estate agencies. Was not happy of how I was approached. And that wasn't the olny thing that made him stand out. He was there every step of the way from beginning to the end. Thank u David for being friend.

    • We were referred to David by another agent and it was a match made in heaven. In 2015 we remodeled and sold a house, as well as bought a new house, and David represented us both times. He was very patient and accommodating, always ready to give advice and make suggestions but not pushy or aggressive. He was also extremely available to us, no matter what time of day or night. I don't think I waited more than 5 minutes for a response in the months we worked together. When we had our open house he showed up with drinks plus cookie dough, a baking sheet, and a spatula (the house was totally empty). We got a full-price offer the first day it was on the market thanks to David's savvy. If you're looking for an agent who will go the extra mile for you without the extra ego that so many real estate agents seem to have, David's your guy!

    • David Palma.. well, what can i say? From the first day of offering to the last day of closing he exceeded all our expectations. I truly believe that no other realtor had a chance of getting us this particular property, which we now laugh about and call "heaven on earth". His approach, negotiation skills, knowledge, attitude, determination, and confidence all worked in harmony like a finely tuned race machine to win the biggest race of all time. I have known David for a long time and we have been great friends. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a realtor whom is top notch, goes the extra mile, is well liked in the community, that people listen to and respect, to look no further. David is the only one that has what it takes to get you the home you want.
