As we embarked on buying our first home, David was an incredible advocate and counselor. Our trust in him can’t be overstated. David’s sharp understanding of the LA market, and many years of experience came through at every step of our process. During our search, his counsel helped us avoid heartache, and kept us on track to finding a home that we love. And when it came time to negotiate with the seller, he was exactly who we wanted to represent us. He had our backs. He worked hard, and jumped through hoops to get us the best deal. He has more skill, knowledge, and work ethic than others we’ve met. As a first time home buyers, we felt extremely fortunate to have him by our side.
The ultimate professional, David Rothblum was far and away my first choice after interviewing a number of other competent and recommended real estate brokers. Not only did he impress me with his knowledge of the market and real estate in general, he had done his homework on my own vintage property, which has historic significance in the city of L.A. David also understood my specific needs regarding my financial situation and my anxiety about selling my home of nearly 30 years. Empathetic to my fears, he was an assuring and calming presence as he carefully guided me through the entire process, step by step, from beginning to closing (and after), making it easy for me to understand everything. The end result was that, in a relatively short time, he successfully sold my home for terms satisfying and rewarding to both buyer and seller…and I couldn’t be happier. I emphatically recommend David Rothblum to anyone nervous about buying or selling a home. More than a masterful expert at his profession, at his core, David is what has become increasingly rare these days, what I value the most in this world: A Good, Honest Human Being.
David is beyond excellent. Specifically, we found a home on January 30, put in a deal January 31, and he was working on closing the deal JANUARY 1 despite being on vacation with his kids. That is what you call professionalism. Although just a simple first home purchase, I could not have navigated this deal with any other run of the mill realtor that was “referred by my friend’s brother’s wife’s great aunt etc. etc.—you get the point. He tireless worked with my mortgage broker, escrow company, and most importantly of all—a difficult selling agent, while I was able to focus on my own obligations through the process. The deal closed on time, with no problems, and LOWER than asking price, specifically due to David’s workaholic nature and experience in the business. I would absolutely recommend for selling or buying!
We could not have been happier with David! My wife and I were on the path to becoming first-time homeowners and needed help through the process. David was there with us every step of the way, answering any questions we had and making sure we understood every detail as things came up. Once our offer was accepted, David guided us through the process until the end when we closed on our first home! We could not have done this without David’s help and couldn’t recommend him enough to anyone looking to buy a home. He took an incredibly complex process for us first-timers and gave us the confidence to navigate all the tasks (both big and small) that come with buying a home. We will always be indebted to him for making our dreams come true!
David is the ultimate professional and is on top of everything from the time you speak until the property closes. (and then even after that). He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of buying and selling real estate. David has every detail down to the last element and things do come up regarding the legalities of who is responsible for what. He works at all hours and is always available for questions; even though he has the questions answered before you ask. He knows his stuff and I would never use anyone else again. It is in your best interest to call him.
My husband and I were first time house buyers, and David was so wonderful throughout the process! He made sure we felt comfortable and confident, he explained each and every step, and let us know what next to anticipate. David is incredibly knowledgeable and trustworthy, and also just a pleasure to work with – a true professional! If you’re hoping to work with an agent who cares about his clients and doing right by them, David is absolutely your guy!
From start to finish, David was hands down the most professional, responsive, knowledgeable real estate agent I’ve had the pleasure of working with. It was our first time buying a home and he stepped us through every part of the process with ease. He was on top of everything. He listened to our needs and worked very hard on our behalf even in the first couple days that we met. He is enthusiastic and passionate and will work hard until he makes you happy. Everything was done with a human touch, for example, he’d never send us a property he didn’t think was a fit and saved us time. He helped us night and day, even late nights and weekends. He is also not shy to negotiate for you and we got the price we wanted on our new home, thanks to him. Not to mention he got us through escrow very quickly and pushed all parties involved to get the deal done. I’d recommend him to absolutely anyone. He did an amazing job!
Probably the best professional relationship I’ve ever had. David is as honest as they come, and I felt very well taken care of. The house was sold in a few months. He was straightforward with his suggestions and was always prepared to talk things out. He made things as easy as they could be. I would absolutely recommend him, and will use him again on my next real estate endeavor.
David helped us find our first home, and then when our family grew out of the space, he helped us list our home and find a larger one. Throughout the process, David’s insight into the real estate market was very helpful when making key decisions. In addition, his thoroughness combined with his years of experience and knowledge, made us feel calm and confident along the way with all of the choices that we made. When working with David, you can tell that he has a passion for real estate, and an understanding of the real estate market, and cares about helping people who are considering to purchase or sell their home.
David was a huge asset for us in buying our first home. He made every part of the process easy and comfortable and I know he was the difference maker in us winning the bid for our house. He knows the ins and outs of a ton of LA neighborhoods and will give you his honest opinion every step of the way. His knowledge is invaluable and we will definitely use him again when or if it’s time for us to move and look for a new place.
David Rothblum exceeded my expectations. In fact, I can’t imagine having gone through this process of selling my childhood home with all those memories attached without his support, knowledgeable guidance and expediency. The house and garage was cleared of furniture, prepared and sold/closed within 3 weeks for $100,000 over listed price. Above all, David was with me every step of the way. He is about as close to perfection as you will ever find. Take my advice….your search ends after finding David.
We received the highest quality of service as David is an efficient, organized, task oriented realtor who worked seamlessly with both us and the buyer of our property to complete the sale in a timely fashion. His experience in the market and his advice during the sale process were invaluable.
David was hugely helpful and very patient with us first time buyers! He worked very hard to find a place that met our needs and negotiated a fare price.
David made me a homeowner when no one thought it was even possible! He was diligent, kind, constructive, tenacious, positive, creative, and PROFESSIONAL. This was the most difficult real estate transaction of all time (short-sale, almost 11 months start to finish) and he made it a reality. He simply would not let the deal fall apart, no matter how many banks and lenders and loopholes and brokers and issues and problems and paperwork they threw at him. He’s the best. And I have a beautiful little house in LA’s hippest neighborhood to prove it. Go with David. He’s great to have on your side.
Couldn’t have been happier working with David Rothblum. He was very helpful and patient and found us the perfect place to purchase. He also proved invaluable in helping us through some problems that arose during the escrow period. We have referred David to others and will continue to do so in the future.
David operates at the highest level of professional excellence. We know David to be very responsible and caring for his clients, and delivers results with diligent efficiency. Without hesitation we recommend David’s services to anyone in the housing marketplace.
When I purchased my condo in Toluca Lake it was a pleasure to work with David. He lightened the stress of the process with his expertise and pleasant personality. Above all, David was responsive to my needs at every step of what could have been an arduous process. I would highly recommend this very competent real estate professional.
David is very professional. He keeps you updated all the time on what is happening. He follows through on all items and questions you may have. It was very easy working with him.
We entered this process knowing absolutely nothing about home buying. We were thus incredibly fortunate to have found David Rothblum. His guidance and approache really helped us throughout the process. David’s personal touch and extra effort helped us to win an intense bidding war and navigate the contingencies thereafter. He is a true Mensch. I find that those are often hard to come by. Thank you, David, from the bottom of our hearts.
When it comes to real estate, David is the real deal. LA is full of part time real estate agents and people who talk a good game, but David actually knows how to get deals done for his clients and put roofs over heads. Without David’s guidance, hustle, and ability to expertly communicate and manage all the moving parts of a home purchase, including a difficult seller and a mortgage broker without much of a sense of urgency, I definitely wouldn’t have been able to buy my first home. Outside of paying the mortgage on the house I now own, I honestly couldn’t ask for anything more from a real estate agent and look forward to scraping enough loose change together to do it all over again.
David, you truly have been one of the best realtors we have done business with, ever! Your patience, your availability & your instincts have been “spot on”! You also are truly a professional & a true pleasure to know! Thank you for all you have done for all of us.
We wanted to let you know how thrilled we were to work with David Rothblum. He made the home buying and selling process exceed our expectations. He really took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home purchse for our growing family. We feel that going into any transaction, David gives us an edge because of his expertise, his proactive discussions with other realtors, and his spot-on advice. This was our second time buying a home with David, but our first time ever selling a home. We were not sure what to expect but David made the process seamless and fast. His advice on preparing our home for the market was invaluable, and within days of listing the property, we had 3 offers…all at or above asking! He helped us weigh the pros and cons of the various offers, and we confidently entered into escrow within a week of listing the property. We even closed early. We couldn’t have asked for an easier transaction. David has the right balance of advisor and advocate. His communication is phenomenal. He’s always available and responsive. We will happily recommend him to anyone we know looking to buy or sell property, and we consider David an essential component of any future real estate transaction that we engage in.
David was instrumental in getting our offer accepted in a multiple offer situation. He was incredibly knowledgeable and communicative throughout the whole process, commanding the respect of the seller’s agents. He has a phenomenal arsenal of knowledgeable professionals at his disposal, which enabled us to make educated decisions as we moved along the escrow process. I would highly recommend David for anyone buying or selling real estate in the Los Angeles area, and especially for anyone entering a complicated market or negotiation.
I knew many people who had worked with David Rothblum & raved about how professional, honest, and knowledgeable he was about the LA housing market. Boy were they right! Within two months David was able to find us our perfect new home. He made the entire process fun and smooth. Not only did he find us a great place, he also got us in at the right price! I highly recommend him as he is a great agent and also a really good guy!
When we moved our young family of five across the country for a dream job opportunity, we were unfamiliar with Los Angeles but needed to buy a home quickly. We feel so fortunate to have found David to work with. He became a trusted advisor at every twist and turn of the complex process of purchasing a house, from the search, to making the offer, negotiating, and completing the purchase. David not only has great knowledge of the market, but also of the intricacies of L.A. neighborhoods down to the street! Once we found the perfect house, David was able to get our offer accepted in a multiple-offer situation and on great terms. David’s thoughtfulness and dedication to getting the best house for us, made working with him an absolute pleasure.
David is a true professional and has a deep knowledge of the LA market. He is a great agent who will work hard for his clients every step of the way. He makes the entire process easy whether youre looking to buy a property or sell one. I had the pleasure of both buying my first condo in LA and selling that condo using David as my agent. I was interested in a unit in a building where none were for sale, David sent letters to all the owners and worked diligently to help me get the condo I wanted. When I needed to sell my condo he took care of everything, including a comprehensive market analysis to help with the right pricing, massive and targeted marketing and open houses to get my condo sold quickly in a down market. In between buying and selling, David keeps in touch by providing you with current information about the market, rates and cool facts/information about what’s happening in LA….he really cares about his clients. I would highly recommend David for all your Real Estate needs.
David was fantastic in all areas. He is a great agent who I worked with to both buy and later sell my home. I highly recommend him! Very attentive and thoughtful, he was always ten steps ahead of the process, and kept me aware of the progress every step of the way. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and his contacts are top-notch. He is also just a great, amiable guy and I’m sure that went a long way to getting this house sold so quickly!
David is very honest, approachable and easy to deal with. You will never feel as if you are being pushed or bullied. I am probably not the easiest person to deal with at times, but he never made me feel as if I were being difficult. You can be confident that David will be skillful and competent in dealing with all of your real estate needs.
I highly recommend using David Rothblum for a smooth, efficient, real estate transaction. David found me a beautiful house in the Hollywood Hills with THE most spectacular view in all of Los Angeles. His professionalism is second to none. I have already referred him to other purchasers.
I bought a wonderful duplex with David. This was my first property and a major investment for me and my family. David was not only professional and extremely knowledgeable about all facets of real estate, including the Los Angeles area – but he was patient too! It took me nearly two years from my first meeting with David about the potential purchase, until we finally closed a deal. I can’t thank him enough for all his hard work and time spent searching for my needs. I would recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a quality home and/or investment.
I feel very lucky that I’ve had David by my side throughout (and now following) my recent home purchase. First off, he’s a pleasure to work with–personable and professional, instantly responsive, and attuned to my wants versus where others might have focused their attentions. He doesn’t feed you hype–he’s a man of his word and he delivers–I simply can’t say enough about the superior quality of his work on the deal. As a result, I found the best property possible in my price range in the heart of the area I was dreaming about living in just as it hit the market and in time to make a move. His personality won over the seller’s agent immediately, and had me at the head of the offers. Moreover, when the deal almost went array because of some serious issues, David and his lending whiz accomplished a last minute buzzer beater–working some major overtime in coming up with an ingenious save that let me walk out of the war of the housing market a winner. In a sentence: I recommend him highly.
I am emailing to thank you for all of your hard work that led to the sale of my condo in Valley Village. I realize I wasn’t the easiest client, but you took care of me and really showed concern for my situation which put me at ease. You are as top notch as they come and I am sure that without you assisting me, I would not have gotten top dollar for my home and it would have stayed on the market even longer. I appreciate your communication skills that included weekly updates and emails detailing each open house you held as well as specific information on who liked my house and who didn’t. Thanks again and I will happily refer you to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
We have had the pleasure of working with David Rothblum for the past 10 years starting with the purchase of our first home and recently with the sale of our prior home and purchase of our existing home. David encompasses the one quality we feel is most important in a realtor- trust. We trust his extensive knowledge of the market and market trends & strategies to ensure that we listed our home at the best possible price. And we had full trust that he was able to represent our home to potential buyers and us to potential sellers. In regards to selling, David took the time to stage our home and was willing to make the upfront investment in hiring a professional photographer to ensure that our home came onto the market in the best possible way. Once our home was listed, David continually sought feedback from every showing and thoroughly qualified any perspective buyers. As for buying, he was respectful yet firm with the listing agent of our existing home and got the deal done quickly and efficiently. We recommend David to anyone buying or selling a home.
In all transparency, David is a friend. That was the main reason I originally asked David to represent us as our realtor. I have to say though that I was incredibly nervous about doing any type of business with friends and know I’m not the easiest client to please. Friend or no friend, David was AMAZING. He went beyond the call of duty. The biggest thing I learned through the buying of our first home is that finding the home is only a small part of the process, it’s everything beyond that where you need someone amazing. David has impeccable communication, is great at negotiation, and won’t stop until you are 100% satisfied. And his ethics, trustworthiness, and honesty cannot be matched. He is available at all times and will be there by your side every step of the way. Honestly and genuinely cannot recommend David enough.
I purchased my first home about two and half years ago. David Rothblum helped me every step of the way, and made sure that the process was as smooth and enjoyable as possible. His knowledge of the real-estate market is extensive, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. David was friendly and professional throughout the entire experience, and I look forward to working with him in the future.
I was completely satisfied with the performance of David Rothblum and my escrow of 15900 Woodvale Road in Encino. David is personable, a good communicator, and was very helpful in every aspect of the escrow period. He helped me get people to care for the house and do all that was needed. David did everything he said he would do and did it quickly. I have sold several houses in the past and think David was the best agent I have ever had. I would have no hesitation having David represent me again in other real estate transactions or recommending him to friends. This letter can be shown to anyone considering hiring David and wanting a reference.
I just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work in helping me find the perfect home. I am just now getting completely settled in and wanted to write to you expressing my love and affection for your patience and commitment. I am telling everyone here at Interscope what a fantastic job you did for me and hope to bring more business to you in the future. You are the best!
Throughout the entire home-buying experience, David went above and beyond to make sure that the process went as swiftly, and smoothly, as possible. It put me at ease to know that David was always on the ball, advocating that both my needs and wants were met. With every twist and turn, I trusted him implicitly and am so thankful for his invaluable advice, hard work, and dedication to getting me my first place. I absolutely couldn’t have done it without David and won’t hesitate recommending him to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the future.
I wanted to thank you for helping us during the process of selling the Ontario house. Everything was handled very professionally, and I like the fact that you always kept me in the loop with everything you were doing. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and relatives if they ever need to purchase or sell a house.
David was very attentive to our family in regards to the sale of our home. I think he arrived at a fair price, helped us make some improvements so the house would show better and helped us pick the best bid.
