My wife and I hired Dave Farnsworth / Tri Valley Brokers for the 3rd time recently and I thought I’d share our thoughts publicly. Its rare that we due this but we thought it was important to let other prospective clients know our opinion and results we have received from Dave.

27 years ago, we sold our first home through Dave and believe me it was a much different market then. Our home sold and we were happy with the outcome but what was unusual was the unbelievable effort that was put forth by Dave Farnsworth to make it happen. We accepted a contingent offer that 4 more contingent properties tied to it. Totally unheard of today. Dave analyzed all the other contingent property’s and did his due diligence. He told us that in his opinion the offer was workable and with a little patience we would be rewarded with a great sales price. It worked! Just like Dave said it would. Very impressive! We then bought our next home through Dave and also had a wonderful experience. Smooth with no surprises. We lived in that home for the past 27 years and when it came time for us to retire and move out of the area we gave Dave a call to list our home. Dave analyzed the market and had us prepare our home so we could get top dollar. We got pre-sale inspections so that we had no last-minute surprises or renegotiation by the buyer in the middle of escrow. We made a few key updates and repairs Dave suggested and then Dave had the property professional staged and photographed. Dave then prepared the marketing and hit the MLS. The result was fantastic, mass attention from agents and the public resulted in 5 offers and a price beyond our expectations! We got 70k more than we had hoped for.  Dave Farnsworth/ did all this at an incredible low rate of just 4.5%

One more point; When we bough our retirement home out of the area we hit a snag and it looked like we may not be able close our sale. On a hunch, I called Dave who was not part of that sale: I explained our dilemma and asked for his advice. The advice Dave gave us not only saved our deal but provided a tremendous relief to both my wife and I.  Without question Dave’s 33 years of experience is priceless. Our other agent had less experience and was unable to solve the problem. Dave has our highest recommendation, He is calm professional and you will get the best result possible.
