My wife and I have really enjoyed working with Dave. He and his wife Chris were instrumental in helping us find a home that fit what we were looking for (and we were very particular). If it weren't for their quick action, we would have never known that the house we bought was on the market. Dave's attention to detail to help guide us through both the buying and selling process is excellent. In my past experience working with Realtors, attention to detail is usually not a strong quality. Dave has always been right on top of every step in the process. Lastly, Dave's communication and responsiveness to any questions we have had has been excellent as well. Whether its a question on closing dates, home warranty options or pointing us in the right direction to find a pool service or home audio company, Dave is quick to communicate back with a detailed response. We would highly recommend Dave and Chris to our friends and family in the future, plus would look forward to using them again for any future real estate needs.

As first-time real estate property investors, it was a tremendous relief and very reassuring to work with a professional like Dave. His knowledge of the local real estate market, as well as fact-based analysis on pricing, really helped us understand and pick the right investments. He is always available to us and continues to be a source of information and guidance for us. We've been so pleased with Dave that we just finished purchasing our second investment property with him.

David is a true full-time professional realtor. His guidance from preparing our home for listing to the closing process was exceptional!  His experience, market knowledge, and work ethic really made a positive difference for us. We highly recommend David as a realtor.

Dave was the best agent that we've worked with in buying a house. He was patient, professional and more than willing to work with us through a lengthy home search process. When we found the house that we really wanted he was tenacious and helped us close the deal!  He made the buying process a breeze!

When we met David Vogdes we decided to go with him without further interviews. Our instincts proved to be our best choice. He was enthusiastic, competent, and attentive to our needs and to the sales market situation. He communicated and met with us frequently. We highly recommend him.

David did a great job marketing my home with professional pictures for the listing and flyer. He was also very helpful in navigating the sales and closing process. I will look to him for future real estate transactions and have recommended him to others.

I purchased two investment properties with David Vogdes representing me on both transactions. I really appreciated his professionalism, his responsiveness and most of all, his advice. I live in California, and before I even set foot in Texas, Dave was able to help me narrow down specific neighborhoods and houses that I should be looking at. Being remote, he helped me preview and evaluate houses via video chat, and provided references for local vendors. He was able to facilitate a very complex set of transactions involving a 1031 exchange, 2 loan contingencies, a major repair contingency and 2 nearly simultaneous closing dates, and make everything flow through smoothly. As an investor, I know that most of my success will depend on having a good team in place, and I'm very fortunate to have found Dave.

We have certainly been happy with Dave's help and guidance in finding our new home. It was a very smooth process. We have also appreciated his work in marketing our existing home.

The team over at Realty Austin have been great to work with. Our Realtor, David Vogdes, helped us find a beautiful house in the Steiner Ranch area that met all of our requirements. He also provided advice on finding the right home inspector, mortgage broker and even recommended a great gardener. His professionalism and strong knowledge about the area were exceptional. If you're looking to buy in the greater Austin area, please reach out David and the team over at Realty Austin.

Very excited to have the keys to our new home! Big thanks to awesome Realtor David Vogdes!

It was my first time purchasing a house by myself and I couldn't be happier with Dave. He was not only super knowledgeable but also very patient and supportive, answering my questions and making sure I understood the process. No doubt I would always recommend him to be your realtor if you are selling or buying properties around Austin.

We could not have asked for a better realtor. Professional, observant, and knowledgeable; he persistently, consistently, and relentlessly trudged through dozens of properties, helping narrow down the search and saving us a load of time. Optimistic and patient, he was always on track with specific requests while keeping the big picture directly in front of him. Even after a demanding day of futile house-hunting, he'd happily volunteer to get back to the grindstone early the following day... driving us from one side of the city to the other at a moment's notice.

Thoughtful, kind, and honest, he was genuinely interested in what my husband and I were searching for in a home. When we started to fatigue from battle, ready to settle for "good enough," he would lift our spirits and reassure us that tomorrow is another day. When we starting drifting into the clouds, he would gently pull us back down. Either telepathic or just extremely intuitive, he "knew" what we were looking for, guiding us to wonderful options like a heat-seeking missile. He never "pushed for more" than what we wanted nor "encouraged" us to settle for less than we needed. Needless to say, it was a pleasure working with Dave.

Thank you, Dave, for helping us find our amazing first home, fast, for a great price, in an equally amazing neighborhood. We couldn't have done it without you.

I recently sold my home and purchased a new townhome with Dave Vogdes. Dave was excellent and I would highly recommend him.

I can’t say enough great things about Dave and how he has helped us start up and build our residential real estate investment business.

We just closed 2 more properties on Friday with Dave and they went off without a hitch, much like the first one we bought with him in November. He pays attention to the detail, provides sage advice as needed, and always follow up on any issue that arises promptly.

In addition to the purchase process, he has also been invaluable in helping us getting these properties leased in a timely manner. We look forward to a great long term partnership with him.

Dave Vogdes was extremely knowledgable and professional. He sold my house for a great price and helped me find the new home of my dreams. I highly recommend using him on your next sale and/or purchase.

Dave has been a true business partner for us, much more than a realtor, as we have started out as investors. He is honest, straightforward, and has a very pragmatic approach, based on solid financial discipline. This saves time for us and him as we quickly focus on the critical few opportunities available in our target market. In addition, his level of communication and engagement is always high and he simply gets things done. Finally, his experience as an investor has gone beyond helping us find the best opportunity to advising us about many of the nuances associated with the various parts of the end to end process. He has been invaluable and we look forward to working with him on more deals in the future.

We have worked with many realtors, both for our own homes and investment properties in 3 different states. Dave has, by far, been the BEST we have ever dealt with. He is very knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy, always there when you need him, and always working for you behind the scenes even when you don't know it. In a field saturated with people, Dave is top notch and above the rest!

I found Dave online while still living in California. We were short on time to find a house due to my husband separating from the military. We had never been to Texas before and we're very unfamiliar with the areas. Dave was extremely knowledgeable about the different cities and recommended the ones that were a safe fit for our family. Even though I found some in our price range, he was completely honest in telling me about the area. I just felt like I could trust his opinion. I was right and we're very happy in our house.

Dave worked extremely hard to make sure our home was marketed and exposed to potential buyers. He took the time to have open houses and followed up with each agent that showed the home for feedback. Communication with Dave was easy and fast!!

Dave was great help to me, not only did I get a home on time, I got to stay in my same neighborhood. I moved only two blocks from my old apartment. The house was the perfect size home for my family. Thank you Dave for not giving up...

Extremely responsive, professional and knowledgeable. His company took beautiful carefully thought photos of the property. And quickly moved the process along to minimize our risk and downtime.

Linda Perniciaro

May 2014

We've had many real estate agents over the years and Dave has definitely been one of the best. He was super flexible, responsive, and accommodating to me and my family. I really enjoyed working with Dave and sometimes wish he hadn't found us such a great place so we could work with him again.
