After two earlier attempts to sell our condominium in Ballard, we were contacted by David who asked if we were still interested in selling. We said yes, but were skeptical about selling because of pricing issues with condominiums. We had some very cordial conversations with David and became convinced that we could sell the property if we priced it to fit the market. David spent considerable time compiling data relative to condo size, location and other property sales. We felt very satisfied with his business approach. Of great importance to us was his personality that fit our age demographic. His willingness to review the market, review our property and list it in a way that generated buyer interest was reassuring. We enjoyed dealing with David, consider him a friend and recommend him to people who want a well prepared, easy to talk to, and a reliable personal guide to their selling process.
David was our broker for both buying our new house and selling our old house. The Seattle market at the time was notoriously crazy, with many all-cash offers (which we couldn't do). He always remained patient and clear-headed despite it all, and was able to give us a bigger-picture perspective due to his experience and research. His past experience as a builder gives him a great perspective on the construction aspect of things. He was also available anytime we wanted to see something new or just talk. Now we are in a new home that we love! The market starting cooling off right as the time came for us to sell, but again he was able to remind us that this was a normalization, and helped us remain calm through it all. He spent a lot of time at our open houses, making sure that our house was presented well. Our house received an all-cash offer, which we accepted, and we were able to have the money in the bank just a few weeks later. Thanks to David we can relax and enjoy our new home!

David Pitney is a great resource and thorough agent. A pleasure to work with !! Thanks, Phil Vivolo
Dave is very informative about the process and goes the extra mile like no other for his clients. This is my second deal with Dave and he has also helped my good friend purchase two properties as well.
David Pitney was our agent when we bought our house in Lynnwood 7 years ago and has kept in contact with us...so when it came to selling my parents home I of course went to Dave and asked for his help. From his suggestions on fixing the house up, to selling the house David was there for us. He answered our smallest questions and made us feel at ease for what could have been a very emotional transaction. Thank you David Pitney and Coldwell Banker Bain we will use your services in the future and continue to refer people to you.
Dave is very dedicated and worked diligently to keep me informed of all of the houses within a 30 mile radius that fit my preferences in a home. He worked days and evenings with tours and paperwork, and really helped me through the entire process, answering every question quickly that I came up with, along with offering information that I hadn't even thought to ask.
Dave was available all day everyday. Working a normal Mon-Fri job it was important to do most of our business in the evening and on weekends.
Patience and help at getting a short sale thru. The time spent was huge for a very small return. I know he did not get that much in the end for the hours he spent helping us get our condo.
"Selling a home from 3,000 miles away seemed a daunting task until we talked to David Pitney. In the last 16 years we’ve worked with several REALTORS® and this was far and away the best working relationship and the best outcome we have experienced. The entire process, from deciding to sell to closing was completely seamless. As we were not present for any of the process, we had to trust that David was on top of everything and in fact he was. He was always available by email or phone, and kept us up to date, literally, sometimes hour-by-hour. After he sent us photos of the unit, we utilized his recommendations for demolition of a wall, painters, carpeting, and cleaning services to get our home sale-ready and each vendor recommended was efficient and professional. Throughout this process, David sent pictures of the progress. David staged our home and it looked lovely – he has an incredible eye for detail, and even took note of small things such as finding a replacement tray for the microwave when he noted it was broken. When we received the photo tour of the property he put together after the work was done, we were so pleased, all the work that was done was top notch and the place looked beautiful. David helped us to decide on a sale price, which was right in line with the current market. It was clear that he knows the market well, and is quite familiar with trends and assets in various neighborhoods. He was patient and kind in answering our many questions and was through in finding comps in our neighborhood. He also took care of all the Internet advertising, production of flyers, and hosting of the open houses. The price was right, and we were able to sell the house in only a few days to an eager buyer. In fact, we had multiple parties interested in buying our place after just the first open house! Finally, from the home inspection to escrow, to settlement, David took the responsibly for all the details so we didn’t have to. We were able to close from our home almost 3,000 miles away without a hitch. We were 100% pleased with our experience and it couldn’t have been easier. We stand ready to recommend David Pitney in the highest possible terms to fulfill a home buyer or seller’s needs." Dr. Helena http://www.tourfactory.com/941112
