Dave Stead

    • Dave Stead was extremely helpful and easy to work with during two recent home sales. His advice was honest ,articulate and spot on. We had a positive experience with the advice and support from Dave Stead. I would highly recommend Dave as he is a top notch professional.

    • We started our search for a realtor in the summer of 2015. We had a home that was being rented at the time, and we wanted to start the process of selling the house. We found David Stead and another realtor through Zillow and met with both of them. It didnt take more than the first meeting for us to know that David was the right realtor for us. He was professional, personable and informative. Although we decided to wait another six months to actually list our house, David was available to meet with us as soon as our tenant moved out. He walked through and gave us great advice and tips on making the house more marketable, without spending unnecessary money. We listed the house in the middle of Winter in New England, and we had an offer within the first couple weeks, and closed on the sale within 8 weeks of listing. Since the house was vacant, and we live out of state, we were initially concerned about selling the house long distance. David went above and beyond to do anything that was needed in our absence, including meeting with contractors to get work estimates, handling any repairs that needed to be made, checking on the house, and the list goes on. He was always available to answer questions and to keep us updated on the selling process. We highly recommend David Stead and are so happy that we chose him as our realtor!

    • The best in the business in and around Central Massachusetts! Myself and my fiance were first time home buyers and Dave was so cool and calm during the process it put us at ease. We just closed on our home. He sold my grandparents a house in worcester over 22 years ago and is still doing the same great work.

      - Brandon Evora
    • Dave was very patient with my wife and I since we've never sold a house before. He had a lot of helpful advise on what to do and what not to waste time and money on. We listed the house the week before Christmas on a Thursday and had 4 offers at or above asking price by Sunday. We recently closed with minimal drama. Dave kept us informed and made us feel at ease throughout the process. I highly recommend Dave if you are considering selling your property.

      - Matt Dee
    • David Stead has detailed and current knowledge of the real estate market, property values, and legal and environmental factors affecting housing. He is timely in responding to any requests for information and in setting and keeping appointments, and makes himself available at the convenience of the client. He takes the time to explain particular features or potential problems in the properties involved. David is always courteous and professional in his demeanor and approach.

      - Claire Higgins
    • My wife and I worked with Dave for the purchase of our first home and I could not be happier with our experience. Dave was very responsive and attentive to all of our needs, very often going above and beyond the expectations of myself and my wife. I would highly recommend Dave to all!!!

      - Tim & Mary Wegner
    • Professionalism is the true descriptive term for Dave Stead. Every inquiry and issue was dealt with promptly, courteously, and most importantly, accurately. Anyone considering a realtor, will absolutely be provided with the best available service from Dave Stead

      - Bob Lotsbom
    • Dave worked endlessly to sell my property. The property was unique in design but he was able to present it in such a way that is sold relatively fast. He also maximized the sale price and was professional with all parties involved. If you are looking to sell or buy a house I would highly recommend him.

      - Jay Powell
    • Dave is AMAZING! We interviewed 4 agents to list our house, and decided to go with Dave (which turned out to be an amazing decision!). We had to sell quick due to a new job offer in CA. We gave Dave enormous challenges that he absolutely met. We listed our house 2 months before we had to be out, giving Dave only 2 weeks to get a buyer in so we could close in time. And all of this in November, just before the Worcester winter when the real estate market hibernates. But Dave delivered! We had mentally planned for the worst (I would have to move to CA so I could honor my January start date while my husband stayed in MA in the house waiting for a buyer) - thankfully we never had to put that plan into action! Dave met with us before we listed the house, took beautiful pictures of every room, and generated a buzz online with a pre-listing. By the time the house actually went on the market we had several showings lined up! Dave was always professional, punctual, and smiling. He was a pleasure to deal with and made the entire selling process easy to understand. As this was our first time selling a house, we were very appreciative of him walking through each step. He was always available whenever we needed him (even if it was 10 at night!) and got back to us promptly about everything. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough, and anyone who chooses him as their agent is in good hands. Thanks for everything, Dave!

    • I have known David personally and professionally for over 15 years. Through my years of knowing him, he has always been knowledgeable, attentive to detail and professional. Recently, he has assisted me in buying a home and would I highly recommend his real estate services.

      - Ernie Floyd
    • Dave was easy to work with right from the beginning. We knew very little about selling realestate so it was reassuring to have Dave at our side throughout the process. We had buyers make offers and back out for one reason or another. Through it all Dave gave sound advice on what we could do to make our house more saleable. Even on the day of closing the buyer wanted something we did not feel we could accomplish. Dave stepped in and paid to have it taken care of. You can't ask anymore than that. Thanks for all you help Dave.

      - Paul Toombs
    • David, Was very intuitive as to our desire's and needs to move quickly on this sale. His use of social media impressed both my wife and i. We had friends call us with hours of the first day the listing was up, that had seen it on various media bases. The results speak for themselves.

      - Jim Buck
    • I've bought and sold a good number of houses during my 72-year life span, with moves between and within states and being a landlord for a total of nearly 29 years. Dave is hands down, the best realtor I have ever worked with. He is very professional, yet personable and friendly. He is easy and a joy to work with, very responsive, proactive and effective. He really knows how to list and show a property to its best advantage. I priced my Worcester 3-family at the top of the price range for similar properties when it was listed and had a near-full-price offer within a week of listing which resulted in a sale. I've never sold a property that quickly before. If you want results and a pleasant experience; go with Dave Stead. You will not regret it.

      - Janet Latham
    • The only reason we sold our home was because of David Stead. He was always positive throughout the process and made everything about selling our property easy. We are so fortunate to have chosen David as our partner in this transaction and will certainly request his help in the future. Thank you David.
