Well, our project is almost done. We have moved in, completed the remodel (except the yard), and are so excited to live in Magnolia. I wanted to thank you for all of your help since we started looking at houses here in the spring of 2008. I feel very fortunate for all of your advice based on research, statistics, and your experience in this area. Having had our eye on this house for over 9 months, I am glad you suggested we wait patiently until the seller was willing to sell the house at the true market value (saving us over $300k). This is not only our dream house, but has been an awesome investment. I know my investment into this house has worked out for the better. We just had the house refinanced and even with the HORRIBLE economy since Oct 2008, the house appraised for $115k more than what we invested into it. I have let all of my colleagues and friends know that if they are looking for a house in Magnolia, use DAVE!
After working in real estate myself for several years before returning to work for another company, I was extremely selective when choosing an agent to represent me on the purchase of my new home. I decided on David above all of my previous colleagues in real estate because of his dedication, integrity and work ethic. He goes above and beyond what is expected of an agent and is always available to discuss any issue that may arise. David's expertise of market prices and homes in the Magnolia area made me confident I was making the best purchase my money could buy. His overwhelming patience and assurances helped me through a very stressful time of decision making with offers and counteroffers.
David continues to keep me abreast of the market, even two years after my purchase. I couldn't be happier with my home and its location within walking distance of Magnolia Village . Without David I would have never landed at such a great place. There is no other agent I would ever recommend - David is the best out there!
Dave is an excellent real estate professional. He has been extremely patient with us as we have been searching for our home for many months. Many agents would have pushed us to settle for something that was not right for us, but Dave has on many occasions pointed out reasons why we should not pick a certain house. He has been diligent in finding new listings when they come on the market, making sure that we see them as soon as possible. I would and have recommended anyone who needs to buy or sell a home to use Dave.
Dave was tremendously helpful and very reliable when I purchased my condominium while working overseas. He was always prompt with responding to my calls and emails and I found him very professional, well-informed and dedicated to his work and clients. Dave is also an honest and a very kind person who is a pleasure to work with. Some of my friends also bought properties through Dave and were very happy with his services. I highly recommend Dave to anyone as an excellent real-estate professional. Elena Aroustamova, Seattle, WA

I called you yesterday to tell you someone paid you a very nice compliment.
I was looking at a house they have on the sales market in Magnolia and I was using one of your clients house as a comp for theirs on the rental end of things. And she mentioned walking through your open house and they sure wish they had chosen you as their agent. They thought you were really sweet and super professional.

I had the pleasure of working with a top notch real estate agent on two properties. David went above and beyond on both listings. He sold my house at 2911 W. McGraw in 3-4 months, when it was listed right before the holidays, which is always a slow time of the year. He secured an offer on my home at 2917 W. McGraw in less than 1 month in a extremely tough market this year. To no fault of David's, the offer did not come together and I decided to rent the home. When I'm ready to list again, he will be my listing agent. I would with hesitation recommend David Stelzer for any real estate transaction. He does what he says, works very hard, and is transparent through the entire process. Simply put he is the best!
Outstanding. We've known David for many years, and thus chose to work with him because we knew he'd take care of us and we could trust him. However, he still managed to exceed our already high expectations. He was fantastic. Not only would I recommend him to my family, but I'll recommend him to all my clients as well. He is a fantastic agent.
From bringing us coffee when we went looking for houses, to his in-depth market research, his connections behind the scenes, to taking us for a drink after we signed- he repeatedly exceeded our expectations. Not to mention taking me at 6AM on the day of the move to pick up the rental truck from U-Haul. More than a realtor - he's a superstar.
David will continue to receive all my referral business, he is outstanding. Couldn't have asked for a better agent during these interesting times to help my wife and I find the right place and the right value.

How would you describe the service you received from your agent?
Exceptional! Dave went above and beyond in helping us with the transaction. He was very prompt in setting up all appointments, maintaining contact with the listing agent, market analysis, etc... He definitely has his client's best interest in mind.
Did your agent do anything to exceed your expectations?
He took us to other recently sold properties and properties for sale so we could get a good sense of market pricing. He did these even though we had a budget and price objective for our house. He also was quite helpful in setting up additional inspections (sewer, roof, etc) so we would know how much additional work would cost down the line. He clearly has a strong passion for his work and enjoys doing it. He is always accessible and never appeared to busy or bothered by our requests or questions. I was also quite impressed at the amount of time he dedicated to us, while working on other deals at the same time.
Dave is a top notch agent and we are excited to use him for the sale of our old house. He is very dedicated to building his business and it shows. Being in real estate myself, he handled this transaction perfectly.
David was incredibly receptive and always there for us. While I didn't call him or email him all hours of the night, we always felt like we could. David helped us secure our house in a situation where there were multiple offers (very challenging). He also took the extra time to step us through the process of the contract negotiations and closing. Even though we closed on the house a week ago, he has followed up with us to make sure all is well. David had/has the patience, flexability and the communication skills we were looking for in a realtor.

Negotiation, knowledge of market and chasing the seller even though we were not the highest bidder.
