My Client-First Philosophy

Dave Wahl was my favorite landlord and when I decided to buy a house, he was the very helpful in explaining the process to me and very patient and encouraging as I searched for an excellent home.  He guided me through the whole process and follows up often, years after the sale was completed.  He is responsive and easy to get a hold of when any question comes up.  He is great with first time buyers like me, and I have recommended him to my friends and would recommend to anyone looking for a good agent.

Dave Wahl was our agent for four separate property transfers (totaling over a million dollars) in Trumansburg over a period of three years. He provided exemplary services through all these sales. Dave is diligent, thorough, always ready to follow-up on any request, precise in reviewing documents, skilled in negotiating, and he is keen to notice when a prospect’s actions do not conform to their words. Moreover Dave has a most congenial and engaging personality, which greatly improves a buyer’s attitude in conducting negotiations. By any measure, Dave Wahl is at the top of his class.

Dave was my agent when I purchased my first home when relocating to the Ithaca area. He provided excellent service and accomodated my travel schedule to the area. Dave suggested that I view a home that I hadn't considered, as he thought it would be a great fit for me. He was right, and this is the home that I purchased. I look forward to working with him again soon when we sell our home.

 I have bought and sold about 8 homes over the last 20 years. Dave Wahl is the most recent agent I have worked with, and by far, the best, bar none. He is an expert, and he treats clients with a level of professionalism rarely seen. He also treats his clients as if they are his only ones. He is quick to follow up, gives good advice, and has an intuitive sense about what his clients need and want. Call him. Now.

We met Dave while casually looking for a home; he was filling in for the listing agent, but we found him easy to talk to and provided no pressure. When we were actually ready to purchase a house, on a dead line, we wanted to work with him, he was very patient, pleasant, easy to work with and really took into consideration our needs, concerns, ideas about what we were looking for and valued in a home. We found the perfect house and closing went well. Dave has also been helpful and a great resource for home related projects as he knows the community and has steered us in the right direction when called upon!

David and I have worked together over the past few years and I find him to be a true professional. He takes the time to listen to your requirements and is proactive in presenting opportunities. He knows the ins and outs of real estate and the Ithaca area. I look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.

Hello. I am a former owner of a home in Fall Creek in Ithaca, NY. My husband and I lived in that house for 36 years and loved the area and neighborhood. We chose to move out West when my husband retired, to be with our grandchildren. We chose Dave as our realtor when we put our house up for sale. He did a great job, was always available when we had any questions or concerns. We moved shortly before the house was sold and Dave kept us up to date on showings of the house and also kept an eye on the property for us. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking to sell their property, we were very happy with the service he provided us.

Dave was instrumental in helping me find, negotiate for, and purchase my current home.  He was very knowledgeable and professional, and he listened for what I needed.  I had more confidence in the whole transaction knowing I had the advantage of his experience and careful attention backing me up.  I really don't think I would have my home now if it had not been for Dave.
