My wife and I felt overwhelmed when we decided to sell our co-op. That dread lifted within the first minute of our meeting with David. His thoughtful analysis of our situation and his calm mentoring gave us the direction and inspiration necessary to prepare our unit for sale. His marketing recommendations were spot on. And most important for us, he had a wealth of experience in co-op sales, a notoriously complex area of real estate. We sincerely appreciated his attention to detail, his judicious advice, and his leadership in achieving our sale. We strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or co-op.
Patrick and Gina - Hartsdale, NY
When my husband and I first started looking at houses, we had no idea what we wanted individually, let alone as a potential compromise. I anticipated a daunting process; however, David listened to our feedback, identified the commonality in our visions, and was able to present us with very good options that quickly resulted in us finding our dream home! While we didn’t know what we wanted, David figured it out quickly based on intimate knowledge of local markets, neighborhoods, and real estate trends. David also had amazing remodeling advice for houses that were close to fitting our needs, but just needed a little vision and renovation knowledge. The potential chore of looking at houses quickly turned into an afternoon spent with a good friend. David made me feel comfortable immediately, and clearly always had our best interests in mind. He helped us find a perfect home within our budget, and managed the process start-to-finish to ensure our experience was positive and our closing went smoothly. I highly recommend David Calabrese for anyone contemplating buying or selling a home!
Ryan and Jessica - Tuckahoe, NY
We interviewed quite a few realtors after we decided to sell our home. After meeting with David, we felt his strategies would be the most effective. He insights into what to modify in our home, listing timing, pricing strategy and photography of the property equaled a jam packed open house. We sold the house 2 days after the open house for more than asking!! Thanks David our little family appreciates your help.
Ned and Lara - White Plains, NY
I don't think words can express how great it was to work with David to purchase our first home. As first time home buyers we were completely lost on how the process works and the things we should be looking at and David helped us along the way with every question and concern. David goes above and beyond to help his buyer and makes sure you understand every step of the way. He makes sure he understands every little detail about the home you're buying and points out things even you don't think about. He's very patient and understood how we liked to work which made things even better. He's flexible and always made himself available if you need him. We have 100% trust with David and know his advice is always solid. David will never steer you wrong, and if you don't work with him, you're missing out!
Carrie and Jillian - White Plains, NY
David was outstanding to work with. We very much appreciated his patience, as our search for the "perfect home" lasted about 2 years! He is super knowledgable about homes and their internal/external structures and was able to identify what maintenance and/or additional work a home might need down the road. He was very thorough throughout the entire home buying process. And as if all this wasn't enough, David is just a really good person. We still call him today if we experience a "home issue" that could benefit from better expertise - and he is happy to take our call.
Linda and Jim - White Plains, NY
Had a great experience with David. Although I have purchased a home, this was my first time selling a home. A very stressful time was alleviated by David's professional and experienced guidance. I feel he went above and beyond to help with the sale while keeping me informed throughout the process. If you are looking for great advise and 100% commitment to the customer give David a call!
Larry - Hartsdale, NY
If you're reading this review, it probably means you're looking for an agent to help you buy or sell a home. And if you're like us and have NO idea what you're doing, David is the perfect realtor. We were first time home buyers, and if you had to guess from our knowledge on the subject, it would have seemed it was our first time SEEING a house. We were absolutely clueless on the whole process. We didn't know what red flags to look out for, what types of houses were available in the area or how much renovations could cost. For months David patiently showed us homes, and always took the time to walk us though each step of understanding a house. From foundations to roofs and everything in between, he pointed out potential hidden issues to watch out for and things to consider before making a purchase. We are so thankful we had David on our team. He was always professional, on time, and just a text or call away. When it came time for negotiations, he worked hard to get us the best price! Most important of all, David clearly loves his job. It's refreshing to see someone so motivated, and it was a pleasure to have him as our guide.
Will and Lourdes - White Plains, NY
Dave has intricate knowledge of the local real estate market and contacts ranging from real estate attorneys, mortgage underwriting, and all things in between. He made sure to make himself available to answer any and all questions we may have had at any time of day or night. He showed us properties that fit the location and style that we were looking for and provided his expert advice on everything from putting in an offer to various inspections. He works tirelessly to ensure you leave no stone unturned during the home search process, and for that we thank him and his entire team.
Shawn and Chrissy - Bedford, NY
Coming highly recommended, we had the opportunity and luxury of working with Dave on two separate projects and in that, finding two separate apartments. Before these projects, we were clueless about anything and everything having to do with real estate and buying a home. Having let him know this, he sort of held our hands (in a GREAT and NEEDED) when it came to certain steps. We much appreciated that. We were most impressed by his bargaining/competitive skills. In the first unit we found, he was able to get the seller down from 219k to 207k. The other unit he got the seller down to 200k from 205k - even then, he asked if we wanted to try to get the seller to go lower but we decided not to, mostly because we were in a position hurried to move. The other thing that most comes to mind when we think about working and viewing apartments with Dave is his vision. Perhaps so as not to have a client feel pressured in any way, he doesnt just throw the info at you, but Dave has a plethora of knowledge about things that could be improved upon in the apartment, as well as how those things could be done and how much they would cost. Basically, he has solid knowledge like that of a "flipper." So if you work with him and have a question or want advice, we encourage you to ask him! We're so glad we did. Imperative to us, we can always and have always been able to trust him. Not only was he highly recommended by a past client, but we personally got an immediate sense and/or impression that we could be real with him about anything related to the unit we were viewing and he always had an answer. In the rare occasion that he didn't have an immediate answer for about something in a unit, he would contact whomever he needed to contact to get our question answered and in a very quick fashion. Lastly, just to mention, although we were only looking in the 200-225 range, the person who recommended him had worked with him on 700k deals so he must be prepared to work with a multitude of price ranges. P.S. he is one snazzy dresser :) but on that note, in all seriousness, it kind of reflects his aforementioned ability to view units through the lens of what one could improve on, if they wished. In out personal experience, probably the best aspect of going through the purchasing a home process, was that we felt like we had a whole team working with us on our individual case. By that, we mean: From Dave, he referred us to a mortgage broker that he had past positive experiences with and then we were also referred to the lawyer that we used. Ultimately, his referrals were phenomenal and thus, all three of the pieces that are imperative in purchasing a property, knew each other from past jobs so when it came to things such as email, we were all able to communicate back and forth as a team which not only saved time and kept information accurate between all parties, but we came to realize it built like what felt like a cushion, hehe! Silly as it sounds, but true, we miss having him as a right hand man, now that our deal closed.
Michelle and Anna - White Plains, NY
Dave knows Westchester real estate. He knew exactly what we wanted in a home. Dave is always available to talk and has a wealth of knowledge in buying a home. We would highly recommend Dave if you are looking for a reliable, honest, motivated agent. We wouldn't go anywhere else when you are looking for your forever home.
Robbie and Kay - White Plains, NY
We wouldn’t have been able to get our townhouse if we didn’t have David. He is a wealth of information and because we purchased a new build, we had many MANY questions and he answered every single one with great detail and knowledge. He was extremely accommodating, on top of every step of the process and always made time for us. He also connected us with all of his contacts when we were searching for appliances and looking to install home alarms and entertainment systems. I strongly recommend using David, he is the best in the biz and an absolute dream to work with!
Greg and Farah - West Harrison, NY
David was great. He worked quickly and diligently. He was very knowledgable and helpful across the entire home buying process. He has a 'can do' attitude and knows exactly what needs to be done to make things happen in a time crunch. He is very professional and overall a wonderful person to work with.
Bobby and Kelly - Katonah, NY
David looks through a house, through the walls, he can see the possibilities and the process it takes to get there. And if you want, he'll show you everything he sees. We couldn't afford the house of my dreams, but we could afford to do some construction on the houses he showed me. He knows everyone in Westchester, knows the neighborhoods, knows the history, and can size up a house in moments. There are all kinds of places on the market, and he's seen them all. His desire to know why parts of a house are the way they are, saved us from considering places that would have cost us hundreds of thousands in renovations. He could spot poor decisions in construction from a mile a way and by the time we found our home, we could too! During our negotiation he also saved us thousands. They went smoothly and we were happy. I highly recommend David if you're buying or selling. He loves his job and it shows.
Francis and Sara - Eastchester, NY
Recently bought our second home with Dave and couldn't recommend him more highly! From start to finish, he is responsive and always worked with our best interests in mind. He is trustworthy and extremely knowledgable about the home buying process and the area. I learned so much by working with him and will be referring all my friends and family!
Tamer and Nikole (Purchase #2) - White Plains, NY
If you need to sell your house in Westchester, look no further than David. David made the selling process as easy as possible and ensured we got maximum value. He is very knowledgeable and has been doing this for years! David also worked tirelessly to find us a new home and we are extremely satisfied.
Tamer and Nikole (Sellers) - White Plains, NY
We were referred to David by my husband’s friend. This was our first time purchasing a single family home and we were new to the Westchester area so we wanted someone who could give us an insight and expertise on different towns and schools. The first time we met David, we were not disappointed. He was prompt and spent the time to really explain and answer any questions we had. We spent the next couple of months searching for our new house and David was always professional and we never felt as if we were “pushed” to buy a house. He gave honest opinions about the house even if it meant that we decided not to put in an offer. He also gave us advice on the conditions of the houses relying upon his past contractor experience, which I felt was very helpful in deciding which house to buy. David always answered back my emails and texts right away, never made me feel like he was too busy for me. When we finally found the house that we wanted to buy he came through with superb negotiating skills to get us the best price. We highly recommend David if you are looking to purchase a home in Westchester. He has excellent knowledge of the different towns and will always go out of his way to negotiate on your behalf. David is very passionate about his work and will treat you not as a customer but like a friend. We will definitely use David again if we decide to sell or purchase another home in Westchester in the future.
Jae and Christine - Scarsdale, NY
David was very helpful in our year-long process to find a new home. Given our unfamiliarity with the lower Westchester towns, he guided us through the process and strongly negotiated with the sellers on our behalf. We also greatly valued his contractor-like expertise during our search for a fixer-upper. Unlike our previous experiences with other realtors, we did not feel pressured as he never tried to sell us a house. In short, we highly recommend David for his knowledge of the area, negotiation skills and technical knowledge.
Nicola and Kathleen - Scarsdale, NY
You must choose David Calabrese for your real estate agent. He is simply AMAZING. My recent home sale truthfully might not have happened if not for his expertise and humanity and ability to make everything right. He is by far the best realtor, advocate, and overall expert imaginable. His advice and support are invaluable; he quite literally never stops working 150% until the deal is done - and in the case of our recent transaction, there were more than a few difficulties along the way that might have spelled the end of the deal altogether, had anybody other than David been our agent and constant support. He just fixes things!!! I could not possibly recommend David highly enough. Nothing I could write in this blurb could do him justice. We have worked with him four times now, and will continue to recommend him to all friends and family.
Kris and Julia (Sale #2) - White Plains, NY
We had a wonderful experience working with David on the sale of our condo. He came well prepared, with a complete understanding of the local market. He understood the value of our place immediately, and gave us a few recommendations to prepare it best for showings. The photos helped sell the apartment (about 10% over other comps), and once we had offers his negotiating tactics produced great results. We sold above our expectations, and had an accepted offer in four days! I would highly recommend David to friends and family considering a real estate transaction!
Tony and Danielle - White Plains, NY
We had a great experience with David. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. His experience in our neighborhood was extensive. My husband and I found his suggestions to be sensible and accurate and helped to present our house in the best possible way. We were able to get the most money for our house in a very brief period of time. We would recommend him without hesitation.
Nancy - White Plains, NY
David is very knowledgeable about the Westchester market. He was very patient with us In our home search. He helped us through the buying and selling process. We couldn’t be happier in our new home! We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Carl and Hannah - White Plains, NY & Katonah, NY
My realtor was extremely professional and helpful. He sold my home so quickly and was a pleasure to deal with. I will recommend him to everyone in the area.
Vanessa - Scarsdale, NY
I've watched many real estate shows on TV (i.e. Million Dollar Listing) and always thought those portrayals of home sales were not only fake, but that they could never happen in real life. David Calabrese proved me wrong. He got us nearly a dozen offers within the first week of listing. We had buyers heavily competing for the house, full ask was the LOWEST offer we received. David secured us a buyer at a price well over our asking and at a lightning pace. This guy knows the market, is extremely professional, and has gone way beyond what we expected a realtor would do for us. I would trust David with my closest family and friends and have recommending him already to many of them. Partner with David Calabrese for all your real estate transactions, you will not be disappointed.
Chris and Linda (Sale #2) - White Plains, NY
David was very knowledgeable about the process of buying a home and he had access others who helped move the process along. He was on top of communicating with other realtors and was only a call or message away if I had any questions.
Neal - White Plains, NY
Dave is an incredible agent. He came into my place and made recommendations on what would help me sell. After the recommendations were completed he brought in a professional photogropher and tightly managed the photo process. The pictures he had posted made my place look great but were also true to its appearance and did not mislead any potential buyers (which some agents definitely do). From there it was a very smooth and quick process to find a buyer. I ended up making more money on my place than what I bought it for, which is what everyone really wants. Dave was very attentive and kept the lines of communication open through the whole process. I knew exactly where we stood and where we were going. You'd be insane not to use him!
Alex - Hartsdale, NY
David came with glowing recommendations from 2 different friends and my husband and I were so glad that we had him as our realtor. We met David initially in Spring 2016 and then took a break since we had a newborn to take care of. We closed in November 2017 after looking at about 30 places. David really helped us narrow down our options, as we were a bit unfocused at first. He patiently showed us everything we wanted to see, week after week without ever making us feel pressured to buy. David is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and worked hard to make sure we got a place that we absolutely loved. Since it was our first time purchasing a home, he walked us through all the steps and made sure we were on top of everything. I would highly recommend David to anyone who is looking for a great realtor in Westchester!
Dan and Esther - Scarsdale, NY
My wife and I found David online after doing some extensive research. David was responsive, wonderful, and elegantly dressed each time we went out to look at houses, a real professional. He helped explain a lot of things to us since we're new home owners, especially the scary parts of home ownership like the utilities, basement items, roofs, etc. With his previous contracting experience, he was able to give us some really great advice on not just the real estate market, neighborhoods, schools, and amenities, but also items in the house that will potentially need work or replacement, as well as ways to remediate them and what we could look to spend for such replacements. Super important to know, especially if something will need to be fixed after taking possession of it. Trusting a realtor is pretty hard. You're essentially putting your home and money in their hands and trusting them to guide you through unfamiliar waters. It was so important to us to have somebody we trust. We knew from the first time we saw houses with David that we were in good hands. I would highly recommend David to anybody looking for a home, especially first time home owners.
Patrick and Jane - White Plains, NY
Working with David has been a pleasure from the start. Always professional, and with inside knowledge of the area. We saw many homes with him, and through this process we always felt he had our best interest in mind. He told us at closing that he would always be available to us and that proved to be true time and time again as we reached out to him for info and advice and he was always available and prompt. We'd recommend him to anyone looking for the BEST in the industry!
Brian and Pam - White Plains
Couldn't have asked for a better person!! Dave sold my condo in less than a week and above asking price. While doing that he managed to find our dream home in less than a month!! Dave's attention to detail in what both my finance and I wanted was the KEY! I have always heard horror stories about purchasing and selling we did both in less than a month with smiles and laughter along the way!! It's a no brainer, use Dave!!!
Dennis and Vanessa (Sellers) - White Plains, NY
From the very start, David was extremely professional and accommodating. We felt he was invested in finding the perfect home for us, which he did. Throughout the process, he was proactive and responsive.
Dennis and Vanessa (Buyers) - Bedford Hills, NY
We sold our condo for above asking price on the first weekend on the market. What more could we have asked for? David was knowledgeable, thorough, and responsive. We were very happy with our experience.
Peter and Sarah - White Plains, NY
David goes above and beyond the call of duty. We have now used him for three separate transactions (two buys and one sale) and I can't imagine having a different agent. His knowledge goes beyond just being a broker, he understands home construction and knows exactly what to look for when he walks through a house. We were able to sell our home at list price without even going on the market. He saved our closing by getting a contractor to come to the house last minute and explain to the new buyers that an issue with the air conditioning was minor and just needed maintenance. He is professional and above all else is a value add the transaction.
Bo and Erin - White Plains, NY & Katonah, NY
David has unsurpassed knowledge of the local market and is a pleasure to deal with. I've worked with him over the course of the last few years and he makes you feel as though you're his only client. I highly recommend.
Steven - White Plains, NY
David originally helped us find our first home. When we were ready to sell it, there was no doubt in our mind that he was our go to guy! He is not only professional, knowledgeable, and prompt, he is a genuinely kind person. I never once doubted any advice he had given us. Anytime I needed his help with anything, he was always a phone call or text away. When I do go to buy a home in the future, David is the one who I will go to! Thanks David, you are THE best!
Phil and Marisa - White Plains, NY
David and his assistants are readily available to help clients with budgets big or small. He has extensive market knowledge, a tremendous broker network and works diligently throughout the entire home buying / selling process. He was referred to us highly recommended thus we would recommend him to the entire community looking for a home in the Westchester region.
Christopher - Port Chester, NY
David really took his time going through the condo when we first met. Room by room he gave me tips on enhancements that I never heard before and would never think of on my own. I appreciated the time and attention to detail as opposed to getting right to the numbers. The photgrapher David works with did a fantastic job and I was very impressed with my listing and price point. We looked at comps in the area a couple of times to make sure we got the listing price right. David listen to and valued by opinions in this process. David worked hard to organize the open house, which turned out over 50 different potential buyers. I accepted an offer within 5 days of the listing at the price point I wanted. Multiple offers came in!!! David was there to walk me through the negociation process of the offers, legal contracts and closing. He even swept my condo floors at one point. David made the process stress free and smooth. He was in constant contact with the realtor, lawyers, management company, and me. I could not ask for a better expereince or a better realtor. Thanks David for making the process a positive milestone for me.
Lynn - Bronxville, NY
My wife and I were first time home buyers, and David helped us through the entire process. We had been looking for a home that met our budget and fulfilled our dreams for months by searching all the online sites without success, but after we found David and told him what we were looking for, he showed us what would become our new home on our very first day with him! When we heard the house already had multiple offers on it, David expertly guided us through the process and made sure we made all the right moves to win the bidding process without breaking our budget. The relationships he has built with other brokers in the area was critical to the win, as he was able to use the trust he has built up to assure the seller side that we were very serious and were not wasting their time (and therefore worth passing over the competing bids). I would recommend David to anyone looking for a home in Westchester county as he is truly an expert and trustworthy in all respects.
Kyle and Natalia - Hartsdale, NY
David is an extremely knowledgeable, accomodating and hard working realty agent. Throughout my home buying experience, David was there every step of the way. He answered all questions and provided comfort during some stressful times. I must also add that he is an effective negotiator; he fought hard to get the best deal for my family and I. This is the second time I've used David as an agent and I will call for his services if ever needed again.
Chris and Mariana (Buyers) - New Rochelle, NY
My husband Albert and I had challenge of selling his mother's home in Eastchester with our living in Connecticut. Being out of state, Albert had to rely on internet data to determine who to contact to help put the house on the market. Immediately upon meeting David in person, Albert and I knew we were working with the best. We followed all of David's advice and so glad we did! David was very considerate of our being out of state and always on time for appointments, communicating with us to ensure our time not wasted. David has excellent contacts for everything and a great staff working with him.
Albert and Laura - Scarsdale, NY
We sold a house with Dave last month and couldn't be happier with our experience with him. He genuinely makes everything easy and a personal experience not just business. He was a joy to work with and to say he went above and beyond would be an understatement. We highly recommend and will be using him in the future for sure.
Ryan and Brandon - Tarrytown, NY
David and I worked together for a long time (to say the least) before we finally found my new home. He took the time and effort to help me find a home in a great location that he knew I would be happy with. He is extremely professional, honest and I would definently recommend him.
Nicole D. - Tuckahoe, NY
We really can't recommend David highly enough. He is extremely accessible and a very hard worker who goes above-and-beyond as a matter of course. We put in our initial offer on our house the Thursday before Labor Day, but the holiday weekend was no issue for David, who made himself available at all hours to guide us through the negotiation and show us comps. He also has a very keen eye for the things that matter the most -- he can easily spot both good values and potential money pits -- and we always felt that he had our best interests at heart. As first-time home-buyers, it was very important for us to work with an experienced professional who would be with us every step of the way, and David delivered, many times over.
Issa and Jamie - Scarsdale, NY
I will give more "stars" if I could! David helped me sell my condo in less than 2 months from listing to closing! He was so responsive and very knowledgeable. He also gave us lots of suggestions on staging which turn out to get us an offer on the first showing! Really impressive service. Highly suggest him to everyone.
Aaron and Claire - White Plains, NY
David is very skilled in the business. He provided excellent information regarding the process of putting our house on the market. David was always available and gave good advise. We were very pleased with the service he provided and that we were able to sell so quickly.
Richard and Mary - West Harrison, NY
David Calabrese is by far the best agent we have worked with. He had his photographer take pictures of the condo and even went himself to take pictures. He gave us feedback on what needed to be done for staging purposes for each room. In less than a month, he got us two offers, and one was all cash. We also used David to look for a house in Westchester. We've been looking for a year and still have not found what we wanted. But David has been patient throughout the whole process. He is also very honest. He will tell us the positives AND negatives of each house and let us make the decision. Here is an example of how David goes above and beyond. My husband and I decided we to leave the Westchester area. There was a house on the market in Long Island that needed us to make an offer in the next two days. Even though David does not do real estate in that area, we called David to get this thoughts and opinion. He not only spent an hour with us on the phone, but he volunteered to drive down to Long Island (a 2 hour drive), to see the house himself to help us decide if this was a good deal. He did not get commission for this house, but did this as a favor to us. Now that is customer service! We wish we could take him to Long Island with us!!
Christopher and Linda (Sale #1) - White Plains, NY
I have worked with Dave on purchasing two homes and selling one home over the past four years. He is responsive in his follow up and with addressing questions & concerns. It's a very stressful process, especially when buying and selling at the same time. He did a great job of balancing the two, and we were able to close on both within the same week. He was great with the open house and with bringing in potential buyers for our place. We had multiple offers at full price within days of listing. Overall, while the process isn't always easy, I was very satisfied with how everything turned out and very pleased with our new home. I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.
Michael and Alyssa - White Plains, NY
We have bought and sold 2 houses with Dave as our broker. On our first buy he negotiated the purchase price to save us 50k. When we sold the house he delivered multiple full ask offers in 2 days. Wow! And finally, he negotiated a reduced price on our new house. If you want professional service with a personal feel then this is your realtor. I would strongly recommend using Dave Calabrese to anyone.
Michael and Geri - Tarrytown, NY & Somers, NY
If your looking for an agent with class and knowledge give David a call. By far the best agent in New York. 5 stars isn't enough for him. Attention to detail on what you're looking for and ability to work out of his area is a true testimony of how good of an agent he is.
Chris and Brooke (Buyers) - Yorktown Heights, NY
The experience of selling my home was a pleasure with the help of David Calabrese. He guided me the entire way and truly worked for me. He is knowledgeable, pleasantly outgoing and tenacious when it comes to the real estate world. I highly suggest him to anyone either looking to sell or buy their home / apt.
Chris and Mariana (Sellers) - White Plains, NY
David was really wonderful in helping us navigate opportunities for our next move. We had may requests and requirements in mind and he took all of them into account with each and every house he brought us to see. He was an excellent resource for us, as he was able to point out potential positives and negatives of each home that may not have been obvious to someone without his experience. We are very happy with where we landed, and have David to thank for that!
Michael and Nicole (Buyers) - Irvington, NY
David helped us sell our home very quickly, as we needed to meet a quick deadline in order to purchase the house we were moving in to. He helped us stage the house and included many of his own personal details that received great feedback from prospective buyers. Would highly recommend David to anyone looking to buy or sell in Westchester.
Michael and Nicole (Sellers) - Tarrytown, NY
David was an integral part of our home buying experience. He brought a wealth of knowledge to looking for homes, negotiating our offer, navigating the inspection and communicating with the seller throughout the process. As this was our first home and quite a daunting experience, he was always a quick phone call or email away if we had any questions. We truly appreciated his experience and really valued his opinions. I would recommend him 100 times over to anyone looking for a home in the Westchester area!
Anthony and Maryanne - Pleasantville, NY
As a first time buyer I was really clueless to the whole process. David Calabrese made the process so simple and enjoyable. He was extremely helpful, professional, and went above and beyond to make sure everything went as smooth as possible. He is extremely knowledgeable of home purchasing and selling that I never once doubted any of his advice. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I highly recommend David to anyone buying or selling any property!
Michael and Kristina - Mount Kisco, NY
We were lucky enough to work with David when we were looking for a house and when we sold our house. Throughout the buying process David was very patient with us and listen to our every need. He would go above and beyond showing us houses and suggesting houses that fit our needs until we found the right one. When it was time to sell he worked with us on staging, pricing the home competitively and brought in quality buyers to the fact that we had multiple offers in the first few days. David’s knowledge of the market and areas he serves in invaluable to the home buying/selling process. He’s friendly demeanor, patience and tenacity make him very easy to work with. I would highly recommend him when considering buying or selling.
Justin and Marlana - White Plains, NY & Yorktown Heights, NY
David is great! He has continued to impress us with his ability to know the market, respond quickly and present us with offers that reflect his knowledge of the market.
Joe and Enzo - Harrison, NY
My wife and I recently bought a wonderful home in Hartsdale (with David representing us on the purchase) and invested in substantial renovations. No sooner had we finished, than I received a great job offer out of state, and had to move my family unexpectedly and quickly. We called David to represent us on the sale, and he did tremendously on the seller side as well! With a deep knowledge of the local market, he was able to assist us in negotiating for a very competitive sale price. David also facilitated an efficient closing process, with great communication throughout, especially given that we were out of town much of the time. He is a true professional, on either side of a transaction, and comes highly recommended.
John and MacKenzie (Sellers) - Hartsdale, NY
David was knowledgeable and consistent with his advice. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him in a process that is undeniably stressful. He was constantly in contact and updating us all through the process. I would recommend David to anyone considering selling their home.
Steve and Caroline - Eastchester, NY & Armonk, NY
David was incredibly knowledgeable about the process. As first time homeowners and not being familiar with the ins and outs of what it takes to maintain a home, he was very honest about each home we saw and how it either fit our desires or posed a tentative challenge (for example, he explained the challenges of certain renovations with two young children running around). I was most appreciative of his ability to see certain aspects of homes that may need work when I overlooked them or did not know what to look for. I would recommend David to anyone looking to buy a home, but especially to those first time home buyers that may not feel confident about what the process is.
Eugene and Katie - New Rochelle, NY
David was an amazing partner throughout the entire process of selling my apartment. I highly recommend David to anyone and I plan on working with him on any future real estate transactions I have.
Patrick and Tricia - White Plains, NY
Dave was a good fit in helping to sell our condo. It was clear he was an expert in the field and strongly suggested we make minor improvements before listing and then was able to bring in a photographer to do professional pictures. All of his suggestions made us feel confident in selling our condo. As with any sale, it is all about timing and getting the right buyer. We had lots of people check out our place, which was mostly due to Dave's work in the condo description and beautiful photos. My husband and I are not pushy people, and nor is Dave, he contacted us just frequently enough to let us know he was still there, but not overly pushy. When we needed him most in negotiations (over a holiday weekend), he was there and prompt with responses.
Nick and Jennifer - Harrison, NY
David was great to work with, he helped me purchase my co-op. He is very knowledgeable in process and great to work with. My deal was not the easiest and all came together with his help. When it's time to sell, I will be reaching out to him for sure.
Denise - Tuckahoe, NY
We enlisted David's help when selling our co-op in White Plains in early 2015. He was very prompt in setting up an appointment with a staging expert who helped us show our apartment in the best light. An excellent photographer was hired who took gorgeous pictures. David was very knowledgeable about comps in the area and we priced our place well. Within 4 days of listing it, we had our first full price offer and got another a week later. We were in contract in a matter of weeks.
Chris and Selvi - White Plains, NY
David was recommended to us by a friend and we couldn't be more happy with him. David is professional, knowledgeable and reliable. He gave us sound advice on pricing, staging and home improvements. Once the listing was on the market, he kept us informed and updated through out the process. We were a bit nervous since our asking price was among the highest in the sales history of our building. However, we got two offers after the first few days of showing and our apt was sold for asking price in 4 days. It was more smooth than we ever anticipated, thanks to David! He then was a great asset in the purchase of our new home. He found us the right property for the right price. Again, he proved to be the top 1% agent and we would highly recommend him.
Dan - White Plains, NY & Baldwin Place, NY
David was very professional and knowledgable about the area. He guided us with a price to list and how to handle offers that came in and with that guidance we accepted an offer we were very happy with. It all happened so quickly. David made the process very easy. David is very approachable and knows a lot about ther area. I highly recommend working with him!
Chris and Brooke (Sellers) - White Plains, NY
I cannot recommend David enough and could not be happier with the expertise and service he provided us! We worked with him to sell our modest condo in White Plains and he provided us hands-on service as though we were selling a million dollar home!
Jesse and Paula - White Plains, NY
Home buying experience was seamless thanks to David. David is professional and knowledgeable and helped to make a process that could have been very stressful, much easier than I could have ever anticipated. I highly recommend David to anyone looking to buy a home in Westchester.
Carl and Monique - White Plains, NY
David is totally professional, reliable, and thoughtful. Throughout the process of marketing my co-op not only once but twice, I was able to get to know and appreciate David not only as a real estate agent but also as a fine person. I could not have asked for a better ally in the sale of my home.
Kathy - Yonkers, NY
David was recommended to us by several friends from completely different circles, which says a lot by itself, but when we met him we knew right away he was the broker we wanted to work with. David advised on every aspect of the process, including pricing, staging, and timeframes. David listened to our constraints and needs, and was punctual and attentive throughout the process. David went above and beyond to keep things on multiple tracks moving while we were thousands of miles away. David provided objective advice throughout the process until we closed and I would without hesitation use him again to buy or sell a home.
Michael and Lisa - Hartsdale, NY
David was a true professional. Always very responsive, honest, and available when needed. He is also very knowlegable and handy. Gave us tips on how to improve the home and even pointed out something the home inspector overlooked. Also provided us with contacts for home improvements. David attended our closing for support too. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend David! Great experience!
Brian and Lauren - New Rochelle, NY
After not working out with another agent and being on a deadline, David helped me find a great house and got a good price on it. David was particularly very knowledgeable about all the area we've been through, and gave us a lot suggestion on how to improve each house we've seen. It was absolutely delightful having him as our agent.
Terry and Echo - Pleasantville, NY
David Calabrese was outstanding, and I would highly recommend him. He took much of the stress out of buying a home by listening carefully to our needs, explaining the details of the process, being available to us for even the smallest questions, and coaching us through hurdles along the way. His extensive experience in our geographic area also meant that he had great relationships with other realtors and attorneys, and an in-depth knowledge of the market, both of which helped us get a great deal and close with minimal hassle. This is your guy.
John and MacKenzie (Buyers) - Hartsdale, NY
David is a very smart and kind agent who helped us buy our first home. He listened to what our "must haves" were and was able to give us a good list of options within our tight budget. He was honest and gave advice when we were unsure or had questions. He helped make the process of buying a home a more enjoyable experience. Thank you David!
Jeremy and Kerri - Mount Kisco, NY
Top of the class in attention to detail and effort, attentive to his customers and their needs. A true and complete professional! He will never miss an appointment and will be on top of the transaction all the way to the closing. Rather than a real estate agent, when dealing with Mr. Calabrese you feel you are actually dealing with family!!
Pablo - Scarsdale, NY
You won't find a better realtor in the NY market then David Calabrese. From Day one he went above and beyond expectations. David know's the real estate market, he has a great vision, he's responsive and he always had our best interest at heart. I can honestly say I would never use another realtor. If your looking for the home of your dreams I would recommend using David.
David and Anna - West Harrison, NY
David is very professional and made my selling experience wonderful. I had listed with many agents prior to being recommended to David and the experience was not good. David came in, took over, and sold my co-op and I am so grateful!! David came very highly recommended to me by a close friend and I would definitely recommend him in the same way!!
Sally - Bronxville, NY
My husband and I closed on a house last month in Armonk, NY that Dave showed us. We couldn't be happier with the level of service we received from him. From the start, Dave made himself available to us and worked with our schedule. There were a number of times we had to go back to the property, and Dave was always there to greet us with a smile. He negotiated an awesome deal for us on the property that we didn't think was possible. His expertise and professionalism are top notch, and when dealing with all of the craziness that comes with house buying, it was refreshing to work with a reliable real estate agent.
Jonathan and Samantha - Armonk, NY
We spent almost a year looking at homes with a different agent and nothing was working in our favor. We were outbid on two homes, felt that we weren't on the same page regarding our wants and needs versus what was being suggested to us, and decided to make a change. On a whim, I called David Calabrese, and its the best whim I ever had. From the moment that we visited our first listing together, my husband and I felt that the level of professionalism and knowledge was exceptional. David worked with us throughout the entire process, personally going in crawl space with the home inspector and getting down and dirty (literally!) to make sure that we were making a sound investment. His negotiation skills are fantastic, and he was able to help navigate through the treacherous waters of not only price negotiations, but to assist with securing that we would not be responsible for a few minor repairs that were necessary as well. I would not only recommend my friends, family, and loved ones, but feel that everyone should be so lucky to have an agent like Dave in their corner.
Mike and Haydee - Tarrytown, NY
David helped us find the perfect home by developing a set of criteria that ultimately lead us to purchase the home that best fit our needs. He was able to negotiate a great deal and manage the process to our benefit. We recommend him highly to anyone looking for a home. He's delightful.
Joe and Alice - Armonk, NY & Somers, NY
David was BEYOND an absolute pleasure to work with while selling my co-op in White Plains NY this past year. He helped us stage the apartment and told us exactly what we needed to do to sell my place quickly. As a result my co-op sold in 9 DAYS!!! His tireless work ethic and professionalism was impeccable. There was NEVER a phone call, text or email that went unanswered. Even at stressful times he made our real estate experience worry free. I would HIGHLY recommend David to all my friends and family buying and selling their homes in today's market.
Nicole B. - White Plains, NY
We met David at an open house, and wound up working with him for the better part of a year as we searched throughout lower Westchester for a home. He was endlessly patient as we explored house after house, changing our minds about some of the things we wanted in the process. He never pressured us to look outside our price range, and was very honest during negotiation processes. We had more than one disappointment as we lost several bidding wars, but he kept us motivated. We finally found a house, and closed on it more than eight months after starting our search. In all that time, David never once made us feel rushed or pressured. He was fun to work with and a consummate professional.
Eric and Becky - Pelham, NY
David is REALLY good at his job! He is also an extremely personable guy, which helps in this business and makes it easy to work with him. As first-time buyers, my husband and I had tons of questions every step of the way and needed a realtor who would put us at ease. David was very professional, knowledgeable and patient with the answers. He always made sure we were comfortable at each step in the process. In the search stage, he helped us pick apart each house we looked at, both the good and the bad. In addition, he was always punctual and responsive with the appointments to see places. In the later stages, he was again very helpful with the hand-holding and question-answering that we as first time buyers needed. Would definitely recommend him if any of my friends ever look for a place around Westchester!
Kulli and Karel - Valhalla, NY
After renting out our home for five years, we decided to sell. Since we did not live in the area anymore, we were completely dependent on our realtor to help us with the entire process. We were so lucky to have found David Calabrese! He oversaw renovations, cleaning, yard work, everything. His advise on pricing the house was spot on and resulted in a quick sale. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.
Marc and Catharine - Hartsdale, NY
As we started looking to buy our first house earlier this year, we quickly realized how important it is to have an experienced realtor. We feel very fortunate that we found David Calabrese to help us. After he showed a couple houses to us, my wife and myself both agreed he is very knowledgeable of the Scarsdale area, where we were focusing on the searching. David demonstrated his qualification as a top realtor through every work he did for us, no matter how big or small. He is always on time, considerate, and sharp. In addition to the introduction/tour of the house, he could give his insightful advice on structure, electrical, water etc., which would normally require the type of knowledge of a home inspector, an electrician etc. And those advice we found to be very helpful. Once we decided to make an offer, David worked closely with us on a plan how to proceed. He kept close contact with the seller's agent, and immediately informed us with any updates. He paid attention to every detail to secure the best deal for us, and worked tirelessly - putting numerous calls to negotiate with the seller's agent, and personally delivered several documents to them to avoid any delays. In the end, we bought the house we loved. David's help is absolutely indispensable and we would highly recommend him to anyone without reservation. Thank you very much David!
Wei and YingYing - Scarsdale, NY
David's responsiveness, knowledge of market (and process) and genuine desire to help me was unparalleled. I moved to Texas and then decided to sell my condo in White Plains, New York. For ease of mind and transaction I needed a subject matter expert that knew my asset, the market and the buyers; David Calabrese was my logical and quite frankly, only choice. He addressed every question or concern I had with clarity and professionalism. One particular instance that really stood out I witnessed firsthand. I had to be in New York for a business trip and decided to head over to the condo to see how it looked. I was pleasantly amazed to find David in my kitchen checking out what was said to be a leak. He was literally on the ground looking under the dishwasher trying to fix the problem. There are those who go the distance, there are others that go above and beyond; David looks at all of them through his rear view mirror. I have and will continue to refer David all of my contacts, friends and family when the subject of residential real estate comes up in Westchester. Thanks David for all your help!
Tim - White Plains, NY
David Calabrese was referred to us by close friends who purchased a home in White Plains last year, and we chose him to find us our home in the same area. David found us our dream home within 2 weeks of starting our search, and we just closed on 7/15! I cannot say enough about David's expertise, responsiveness, and knowledge of the area. He has never taken more than an hour to get back to us with answers to our questions (even on weekends), and was always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we were happy, and comfortable during the process. We've gone through the process of buying and selling property before, and it was stressful, but it really makes a world of difference working with a realtor that's assertive, knowledgeable, responsive, and just an overall pleasure to work with. I highly recommend David to anyone looking to rent/buy property in the lower to mid Westchester area.
Louis and Katrina - White Plains
David Calabrese came recommended to us by a close friend and we were so lucky to receive the recommendation. David was an excellent realtor! He went above and beyond to sell our apartment, created beautiful brochures to showcase our place and strategically marketed our listing. He was honest and was amazing at giving us advice about what we could do to make out apartment ready to be sold. He put in countless hours to sell our place and we felt we had an honest friend on our side selling our apartment. We will use him in the future when it comes time for us to buy a house! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.
Kris and Julia (Sale #1) - White Plains, NY
David was very responsive, and helped resolve issues like getting a copy of survey for closing promptly. He was able to provide comparable sales that made sense to us. He understands the market well which elevated our comfort level in the deal. He also helped us with the closing process and guiding through it.
Bobby G. - White Plains, NY
I've bought and sold several homes and I've never worked with anyone better. We were also new to the area so David's knowledge made the process that much more comfortable. He's a full time realtor; not someone who does it as a hobby or part time. We'd use him again and recommend him as well.
Barry and Carol - White Plains, NY
David was absolutely fantastic throughout the process. He offered valuable advice, had equally good recommendations for other needed services, and was very accommodating to scheduling. I would 100% work with David again and recommend him to anyone buying or selling in Westchester.
Evan - White Plains, NY
David was as thorough, responsible and professional in helping us with the purchase of our second as as he was with the first. He's miles apart from any other agent we dealt with and we'll certainly continue to work with David for our real estate needs.
Oleg and Kamilla - Scarsdale, NY
David is without question one of the best Real Estate agents out there. During our search for a new house in Westchester, my wife and I had gone through several agents and none were as knowledgable, patient, and accommodating. Buying our first home was a daunting experience but with David navigating us through the process we grew more confident and reassured knowing he was guiding us through that. His mantra was always, "call me, text me with any questions/concerns...no matter what time of day".....this is the level of commitment you want working with you when it comes to making one of the biggest decisions of your life! As a former home builder, David also has a sharp eye for property assessment and construction which is invaluable when looking at homes (experience that most agents do not have). During and after our process, I was so pleased with our experience that I had no hesitation in recommending him to several of my friends and colleagues. Dave is the best and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Paul and Christy - Eastchester, NY
David recently helped us buy our new home in Westchester, by acting as our agent. David was the consummate professional throughout, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. No question (of which we had many!!) was too much, no matter how small or random. He was instrumental in shepherding us through every single step of the process - from helping us narrow down what we really wanted in a new home, through all the steps that led to the close. David's deep understanding of the real estate business and the Westchester county property market was clear from the get go, but it was also his comprehensive knowledge of building and housing structures (incl. what to look out for) which was of immense help, setting him apart from the run-of-the-mill crowd. I would not hesitate in recommending David.
Simon and Jessica - Katonah, NY
Dave is an excellent realtor. We gave him an idea of what we were looking for and he quickly was able to find us a home. He was very responsive and helpful when we hit road blocks. We definitely recommend him.
Tony and Nancy - White Plains, NY
David stepped in after another agent generated zero showings. Within days of re-listing, with new, professional photos including a floor plan, we were overwhelmed with showings. He suggested an appropriate list price for the area as well as made further suggestions on staging. All in all, he was amazing through the process and I would highly recommend David if you are buying or selling in the lower Westchester, NY area.
Vinny and Christina - White Plains, NY
My wife and I worked with David Calabrese in the spring of 2009. David put in countless hours in order to ensure we found the right house for us at the right price. Once we found our perfect house, David’s excellent negotiation skills allowed us to buy the house within our price range. I highly recommend working with David Calabrese because his hard work and dedication made our dream of home ownership come true.
Ray and Jackie - Port Chester, NY
We had particular requirements for a house and David patiently showed us house after house, some several times. He is truly knowledgeable, personable and an all around great agent. In the beginning I told him how important it was for an agent to be responsive to my emails or calls and David was always very responsive. One thing I really liked was when he was showing us a house he was looking at and pointing out things as if he was the one who was going to buy it. He wasn't just walking through it; he was analyzing and pointing things out. We had less than stellar experiences with several agents before dealing with David and he restored our faith that there ARE some good agents out there. So if you are looking for an agent, call David. Meet with him and see for yourself. We'd definitely call on David again.
Greg and Fe - Tuckahoe, NY
David helped my wife and I buy our 1st house in Westchester. He was extremely knowledgeable on all types and styles of houses and was able to answer all our questions being 1st time home buyers. I highly recommend David for your real estate needs.
Tamer and Nikole (Purchase #1) - White Plains, NY
David Calabrese is the best of the best! He worked with my wife and myself for months to find the perfect home but he also had our apartment sold in less than a week. We can not thank him enough. If you are looking for a patient, diligent, tireless and honest real estate agent then definitely contact David. He is like having your best friend as your agent.
Hugo - White Plains, NY
