David Rudd
Keller Williams
About David

I was raised in the Mid-West and carry those values of hard work and doing right by people in everything I do. In 2018 I was awarded #7 in the nation by Zillow for best customer service by Zillow users (#1 in California) because of my dedication to clients. We start by not telling you what your home is worth, but by listening to your goals, if selling your home for the most money is on top, we have a proven strategy on identifying Intelligent Fix-Ups™ to quickly and affordably increase the value of your home. I invest in your home with staging, included when I list your home. Study after study shows professional staging increases the value of your home (3-8%) and sells your home 35% faster, yet most agents either don't do it or tell the home seller to pay for it, again I include staging. I treat your home as though it was my own. I would love to show you our marketing plan, developed and implemented by my Director of Marketing who has an MBA in marketing from the University of California, Irvine. I am always no pressure and happy to answer all questions.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in La Jolla?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in La Jolla?

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in La Jolla?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in La Jolla to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in La Jolla is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
