OUR CLIENTS ARE IMPORTANT TO US, HERE'S WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY:
I recently sold a house with Dave and while this can be a very stressful process, I felt 110% confident by partnering with Dave. He was candid, provided great feedback, helped explain clearly all details and managed the actual sale negotiation brilliantly. In addition, he was extremely responsive to every one of my questions, no matter how small. As I move forward to now BUY my next house, I am extremely certain Dave will be the right partner to help me navigate this process.
My wife and I had a dream of downsizing from our house in Cape Elizabeth into a small condo closer to where we work and play in Portland. David and his skilled team helped make that dream a reality. The sale went smoothly, and we just closed on an ideal new place we're excited to call home. Nobody knows Portland and the peninsula better than David. He really listens to clients and goes the extra mile with customer service, too.
My wife & I have moved 6 times in the last 25 years. Obviously, we've dealt with many realtors both on the buying and selling side. I have to say that David is by far the BEST realtor we've ever worked with, his professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness and his ability to close the deal was Outstanding!!! If you are buying or selling a home, do yourselves a favor and hire David Marsden!!
After working with David to sell my home in 2013, I was convinced that he’s the only realtor I’ll ever need. Since then, I’ve bought two properties and sold one, and with each process, David’s knowledge, professionalism and terrific instincts have consistently guided us through to excellent outcomes. It is truly a pleasure to work with David – I’ve found that he keeps his client’s best interests in sharp focus and you can always trust that he is on top of every detail, big and small, which brings great peace of mind in any real estate transaction.
David is an outstanding agent to work with. He is a skilled listener and negotiator, with very in-depth knowledge of the local markets. My husband and I listed two properties with him at the same time and while he sold one within a week, one took five months to sell. At no point in those five months did his dedication to selling the property waiver. He was just as aggressive and excited about selling the second property as he was the first. Without doubt, we would seek him out immediately for any upcoming real estate transaction in the future.
David was a joy to work with! The breath of his local knowledge of Portland, ME and its environs along with a thorough real estate expertise was invaluable to us Portland novices. He took time to introduce us to the market and then showed us lots of houses so we had great choices to work with. David also understood and worked with our time frame, responding quickly to all queries. Our experience was great from start to finish, thanks to David. We highly recommend him!!
I would highly recommend David Marsden. He gave us many helpful suggestions on how to update our home. We followed many of his ideas and our home looked amazing. David is very professional and did a very in depth market analysis to help us determine a selling price. David and his team marketed our house well and showed it often and we were able to get an offer on our home in just 10 days. David and his team were very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had and were always wonderful to deal with. If you are looking for an agent to sell your house, David Marsden should be your first choice.
David Marsden is the perfect balance between tough and charming. When you're making a big financial, personal and sometimes emotional decision, you want someone who will be a good listener, a strong negotiator and who is respected his/her peers. David meets all expectations. We have worked with him three times between 2008 and 2013. He was a great coach when we were first time homebuyers and a savvy marketer when we sold that home (within 24 hours) in 2013.
David is the epitome of everything you could want in a broker; he is well-connected, knowledgeable and professional. (In fact, he was able to get us an offer before we even listed our property.) His likeability is what you want in someone representing your home to others. There is an ease about the way in which he conducts himself even amidst all the stress that comes with negotiating such an important personal transaction. He comes across as someone that truly loves what he does and enjoys all there is about Greater Portland and Maine as a whole. I would recommend him to anyone, without hesitation.
We recently purchased a condominium in Portland with David Marsden working as our buyer's agent. This was complicated by the fact that we lived in St. Louis, MO at the time. From start to finish David ushered us through the process in a very thorough and gracious manner. While we were on a brief first visit to Portland, David gave us detailed and helpful information about the condo market and neighborhoods in the city. After this we felt oriented and informed enough to make a purchase decision from out of state. After we decided on one building, David checked out four possibilities for us. Once we chose a unit, he made a video tour for us so we could see what we would be getting. Throughout the process we felt we could trust David to act in our best interests, and our trust was entirely justified. We especially appreciated that he was successful in negotiating a later closing date, which saved us from having to take out an expensive bridge loan! We wholeheartedly recommend David Marsden as a real estate agent! We think anyone would find him engaging, understanding and very easy to work with.
We had a very positive experience with David - both in the sale of our previous home, and the search for & purchase of our new home. David remained calm and confident through all of the bumps we encountered along the way, and in turn we stayed positive through the entire process - right down to his helping us finish moving our things out of our house just minutes before closing. I would definitely recommend David to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
David has been my broker for three real estate experiences, one buying and two selling and he has been amazing. David is smart, caring, savvy, dogged, and just plain fun to work with. He definitely has "got your back" in all negotiations and will work tirelessly to get what he believes is the best deal for you. I will contract with David again and again. He is a treasure.
I have known David for several years. My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with David to sell one house and purchase two. David is a true professional. He is bright, thorough, and honest as the day is long. Through the years, David has become a close and trusted friend. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
David has represented us on numerous real estate deals both buying and selling. He has shown right from the start that he is extremely competent in real estate transactions. We loved how he quickly responded to all of our questions as well as his knowledge of the whole process from start to finish. Finally, David is very well respected in the real estate community and I think that goes a long way when it comes to negotiations.
