David is very knowledgeable of the real estate market in the Phoenix area and stays current with the changing trends. What I valued most about David is his excellent advice on how to proceed. David was able to walk us through the difficult and complicated process of purchasing a Short Sale property. He is very responsive, he did not mind meeting us to view a properties on short notice. I would not hesitate to recommend David to friends and family.

This is the second time I have used David to purchase houses for my kids. Because they are not owner occupied but not rentals it presents it's own challenges. Whit David's help and immediate responses both closed on time.

From the very first meeting, David was ready to assist with his energy, knowledge, patience, and experience in the real estate industry. The level of professionalism he brought showed that he's truly dedicated and ready to serve his clients no matter what they looked like, or sounded like. In the period of weeks of my housing search, I thought he would quit on me due to my demands, but he stuck with all through. David is guy I'm glad to be associated with, and would definitely refer my friends or anyone looking for a home. Less ... More

After dealing with a few real estate agents that left us unhappy with the profession in general, we were pleasantly surprised when David was able to get the house we wanted at the price we set. David was very quick to respond to emails and was always easily reached via the phone as well. He was with us every step of the way -- he even drove 30 minutes to attend the title signing just in case we had any questions. Highly recommended!

David was absolutely fantastic to work with. I had previously worked unsuccessfully with another realtor for 5 months and told David I would not sign another 6 month contract - his response "I can have this house sold in 2 months" - and he did!! I didn't have to do anything but sit back and relax. He agreed with the listing price I wanted, gave great advice on little touches, and never asked me to lower the price or make unnecessary improvements to the property. David was great when it came time to negotiate and word/prepare contracts. He was always available if I had any questions or concerns. I seriously could not be happier or more impressed. From start to finish - listing to closing - 2 months.. To top it off - I have never met David in person as I live in Florida and the property he sold for me was in Phoenix. I found him online and had a local friend meet with him on my behalf. Everything was done from a distance and was completely seemless. In my opinion, whether you are buying/selling in the Phoenix area, whether you are present or not, David Baker is a realtor who does what he says, seems to know the market very well, has fantastic resources, and is exceptional at what he does. I recommend David 100%! Less ... More

We found David through Zillow while living in Florida and setup a phone interview prior to moving to Arizona. During that interview, we immediately found out that David understood our requirements and timeline challenges and understood VA loans. After the first day of looking at houses, David was able to determine and pin point the area and house style that we were looking for. On day two we found it but looked just one more day to make sure and on day three contract was written on the house we found the day before. We didn?t worry about the negotiation, since David was well prepared when submitting the contract. Seller?s countered and David knew we could do better so we countered and it was a done deal within 30 hours. This is our fifth home and David made everything so fast, easy and smooth from the inspections, mortgage broker, and title company this was all in part that he works with the best professionals in this industry. David was there every step of the process including signing the final documents at the title company. The best real estate professional we have ever dealt with and he will be the one we contact in the future. Less ... More

Please consider this the strongest of recommendations for David Baker, who served as our realtor in purchasing a home in Phoenix and our son's realtor in selling his. David worked tirelessly to find houses for us to see as well as making appointments to view properties on our time schedule. In the case of our son's house, David negotiated and renegotiated with the bank until an acceptable compromise was reached. The process seemed to stretch on endlessly but David's persistence and professionalism eventually brought the short sale procedure to a harmonious conclusion. David is professional, persistent, and above all ethical. He never cut corners or took shortcuts, and followed through on every promise he made. He is much more than a realtor, and it is without reservation that we recommend David Baker for any real estate transactions you may need. We would not hesitate for a second to hire him in the future. Less ... More

David is a reponsible, honest and experienced person. I truly recommend him not only as a real state agent but as a great human being. Ah...He also speaks Spanish and that was a "plus" for me and my family. Thank you, David!

Most agents I meet are selling 6 to 8 homes a year. David sells almost 10 times that amount of transactions per year. If you need to buy or sell a home you need to talk to a true pro like David!

My wife and I toured around 30 homes over several days/trips with David. Most helpful was that he provided a web site with listings of homes meeting our criteria (price/location,etc). That allowed us to be effecient and eliminate 80% of homes which would not work for us due to one reason or another. As our purchase was a "short sale", David negotiated with the seller's agent on our behalf and gave us advice on making an offer regarding the purchase price. We are delighted with David's suggestion that we look for a home in the community where we eventually purchased. Dave has been helpful with answering questions on several subjects since we moved into the new home. Less ... More

David is very low key and truly wants to find the right home or investment for you. He does not attempt to push you into something he doesn't feel is right for you. While others had negative experiences in the short sell maket, I purchased several homes through David without an issue. I would easily recomend him.

David Baker was the best agent we have dealt with. Through the buying process he kept me informed and always answered his phone. This was a small dollar amount so it was nice to see him take time with me when he wasn't getting a large commission.

Having just moved to the Phoenix area at the beginning of August, David came highly recommended from a friend of ours who had also purchased a house through him. His knowledge of the area, along with his ability to find my wife and I exactly what we were looking for was, given the competitive nature of the present market, next to amazing. We were able to move in quickly and, to top it all off, he got us the home at almost 90% of market value! Recommend him? You bet!

We were so thankful to have David in our corner for our short sale. He knew exactly what to do and how to do it! The process was painless because he managed all of the details flawlessly. David is not only a great agent, he is now a friend. We appreciate his hard work and dedication.

David helped me with a short sale. He was knowledgable and helped me through every step of the process. He stayed in contact and I never felt I was alone during the whole thing. David also helped us find a new house, he is a very good person to know and do business with. We highly recommend David to anyone in the market for finding a home or selling one.
