Townhome purchase and sale.
Dave Caraway is as fine an agent as we could ever have hoped to have found. He helped us buy a townhouse in Kirkland - and then sell it 10 years later. Dave is an extremely experienced and knowledgeable agent, and an excellent negotiator. But what he brings to the table is far more than just the best price for you. Here are two examples of what I mean:
When we purchased the townhouse, Dave was incredibly patient and attentive to our desires. We looked for 3+ months as my wife was very particular. At the time, Dave had other listings, including a million dollar home, as well as other buyers. But never once did he make us feel as though our hunt for a $250-300K townhouse was anything but the most important transaction he had ever handled.
And when we sold, Dave knew that the inspector really disliked it if pets were in the home while he was working, and that if there were he tended to be more critical. He not only recommended that our cat not be there, he came and got her prior to the inspection and took her for two hours in his car!
We cannot give a higher recommendation to anyone than Dave!

Dave is beyond amazing! Words really can't describe what he did for us! After months of searching we had finally found our perfect home, too bad three other people did too! Dave recommended we take the time and write a letter to the sellers and thank goodness he did because that's what made the buyers fall in love with us and choose us for their beautiful home! I couldn't imagine having any other place to call home, and it's all because of Dave! Not to mention the only day my fiance and I could house hunt was Sunday and Dave was more than willing! And we always had numerous houses to see due to it being our only day and he was such a team player. My fiance really appreciated how Dave would take the time and explain different things about the houses and what to look for and stay clear of. I can't say it enough, Dave Caraway is the BEST!!!!
First time home buyers.
We recently bought our first house and Dave was BEYOND helpful every step of the way. We connected with Dave at a home buying class and instantly knew we wanted to work with him. He was very responsive to our emails/calls and was always willing to meet with us (even on a Sunday!!)
We are first time home buyers so the whole process was overwhelming and confusing but Dave was there to help us every step of the way and never laughed at our sometimes "stupid" questions.
We met with Dave on a Sunday afternoon, sent him a list of the houses we wanted to look at Monday morning, met him at the properties Monday night after work and put in an offer on Tuesday! Once we put an offer in on the house, Dave suggested we write a letter to the sellers which definitely gave us an advantage. He gave us great advice for our counter offer and everything else was a breeze!
He even met with us onsite for our inspection and was extremely knowledgeable and helped reassure us that this house was in excellent condition and a good buy for us. His honesty and trustworthiness was more than we could've asked for and all of the advice he gave us was always in our best interest and we never felt pressure from Dave.
I was very hesitant and scared to begin this home buying process as I have heard so many horror stories but once we started working with Dave I felt so comfortable and would defiantly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a reliable, honest and hardworking agent. Everything went SO smoothly with Dave on our team.
Thanks again Dave! Look forward to working with you if/when we decide to sell :)
