When we decided to retire from New Jersey to Bend, my husband and I interviewed several realtors by phone. We were blown away by Dave?s straight forward business-like answers to our questions and total lack of pressure or smooth talking. Working with Dave and Stephanie Holland was a pleasure from the start. Both are extremely knowledgeable about Bend and the real estate market, have excellent people skills, and really did their homework in getting us a great deal on the purchase of our condo in Bend. On top of all of that, they are very outgoing & pleasant, making the entire experience very positive. The negotiation, inspection, and closing processes were a breeze with Dave handling everything while we were in New Jersey. We are still in NJ awaiting the sale of our house to relocate. Dave has continued to provide great customer service after the sale by scheduling & overseeing repairs to our condo so that it is ready for us when we arrive. We very highly recommend Dave & Stephanie for buying or selling a home. Wish we could bring them to NJ to sell our house!!! Less ... More

We were very happy with Dave and Stephanie in our journey of purchasing a home in Bend. They were patient, no pressure style, answered all our questions and when answers weren't known, researched and responded quickly. They were very accommodating to our out of town schedules, and we very much liked the on line reviews of homes before seeing them in person (just have to know that pictures don't always tell the whole story, but you learn that). The closing process was also quick, easy and seamless. We would definitely recommend Dave's office to anyone looking for real estate in the Bend are. Less ... More

Dave was very patient and extremely knowledgeable and efficient through out my entire home buying experience! He also is extremely helpful in knowledge of community services and local contractors which was helpful as I was moving here from out of state and I had special considerations needed in my future home for a physically challenged family member! He is always on top of his game and has many years of Real Estate and Central Oregon experience! I will recommend him to all of my friends and Dave will be my first call if I should decide to sell and buy again in my future! You absolutely can not go wrong using Dave Holland for all of your real estate needs! 5 star all the way! Less ... More

When we decided to move to Bend, OR from Asheville, NC, we had no idea where to start. We knew very little of the Bend neighborhoods other than the fact that we wanted somewhere on the west side where we could be closest to the river trails. We also knew we wanted to buy a house before we moved across the country and we had limited time to do so! Before we began working with a realtor, we spent lots of time looking on Zillow for homes that fit our criteria. Dave was the listing agent on one of the properties we were most interested in. I finally called his number and left a message. Since it was after business hours and later in the evening, I expected that I might hear back in a few days or maybe the following week. Within minutes after leaving him a message, Dave returned my phone call. When I called him back, it didn't take long at all before I felt like I was talking to someone I'd known for a long time. Dave was beyond personable, relatable and attentive! He took so much time answering my questions about each neighborhood, the house, locations of trails, activities in Bend that would fit our family interests, and so much more. He even got on his computer while I was on mine and walked/talked me through the Zillow neighborhood maps so I could get a better idea of the places he was describing. When I called to speak to Dave about his listing property, I didn't expect him to be so honest and authentic about every other house I asked about. He wasn't just in the phone call to push his property. He truly cared about helping me find a fit that was right for me and my family. Half way into our conversation I whispered to my husband who was sitting next to me that we had found our realtor! From then on, working with Dave and his partner Steph was everything I would have wanted in working partnership with a realtor. From phone calls, emails where my questions and concerns were addressed, the latest listings sent as soon as they came up, to additional pictures sent when requested, Dave and Steph did it all! I'm not sure I could have asked for more in a realtor. My husband and I had to make two separate trips from NC to OR to narrow our choices down but in the end, we found a house that fit the majority of our criteria! I'm so thankful we found the realtors we did! I highly recommend Dave Holland! Less ... More

My Experience with Dave and his team was fantastic. He knew exactly how to approach the market for the best purchase. We are so happy to have worked again with Dave (this is our second purchase with Dave. We also sold our first home with Dave.) We recommend him all the time.

I was referred to David Holland by a co-worker. He took on the sale of our home in Bend (with us living in Bandon, OR), during very stressful circumstances as my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer. He carefully explained every stage of the process, assisting me every step of the way. HIs knowledge is clearly extensive and I was never in doubt that he was less than thorough and professional with every detail. He went above and beyond in my estimation, and relieved me of a great deal of worry about the sale of our home. I would not hesitate to recommend David Holland's services to anyone. I am profoundly grateful to him for helping us during a very difficult time. Less ... More

David was such a great help to us in finding a home. He was immediately responsive about houses we were interested in, he was quick to set up showings as well as answer questions. He payed careful attention to our desires in a home and tailored our searches to those desires. He is professional, informative and over-the-top helpful to make sure our needs were met. I would highly recommend this team!

Dave Holland did an incredible job of showing me houses that were aligned with my criteria. As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and needed to look at a lot of houses before I felt comfortable moving forward. He was very patient and insightful and when the perfect house came up, he did a great job advocating for me. His negotiation skills are excellent.

We worked with David Holland - Stefanie Holland - Scott Cruickshank to buy and sell homes. The services provided were efficient and the electronic documents were so easy to use and the process was we got a phone call that the documents were sent and to call or text when we completed. We bought a house and sold a house in a week!

We loved working with Dave, Stef & Scott. They were always on top of things and found us the perfect house for our family. They really cared for us not only as clients but treated us like friends. My husband's work hours we're always crazy and they always made the time to show us the house no matter what time of day. We throughly enjoyed working with all of them and highly recommend them.

1) Our goal was to purchase a home in Bend for retirement. The initial meeting in February 2013 with Scott Cruikshank and Dave Holland was a productive, personable, professional afternoon. The initial discussion about finding the right home was a thorough and positive experience. Scott and Dave drove my friend and I to three homes which all met discussed features resulting in purchase of the second home shown. Viewing of homes eventually took several months due to my residence in Alaska and preparation for selling a house in Hillsboro, OR. Scott displayed unending patience in answering a long list of questions, querying and discussing retirement needs, and preparing listings for possible purchase. 2) I would heartily recommend Scott and Dave as Real Estate Agents because of their energy, knowledge base, attention to detail, broad experience in real estate, and outstanding ability to complete the entire process of viewing to handing the buyer keys. Scott was responsible for working with the seller, mortgage company, neighbors, and home association in resourceful and successful ways. 3) We take genuine pleasure in recommending Scott Cruikshank and Cascade Sotheby?s International Realty for any real estate needs in Central Oregon. Their highly developed technical skills, ethical conduct, hard work, and conscientiousness made the entire home buying process a pleasure. Preparing the home for our arrival took a huge amount of time and energy on Scott?s part, giving attention to details inside and outside of the house. He personally met us upon our arrival from Alaska even though it was 9 PM. Less ... More

Dave is the best! We met him at an Open House, with no intention of buying the house he was showing, but every intention of starting to look for our first new house. Dave opened up a portal for us, and seemed to know exactly what we were looking for, even though we didn't know ourselves. We put our plans of buying a house on hold for a couple of months, but Dave kept finding things for us. Finally, one day we met with him and his wonderful wife, Stef, and went over all of our must-haves. Within two weeks of that meeting, we had put an offer into our new dream home, which was accepted! Dave was able to provide excellent referrals for a mortgage lender, home inspector, and generally made the process of buying a first home so easy. Also, he and his wife are exceptionally personable, and through our conversations, we found out about lots of common interests we had, so we feel like we've made new friends, in addition to finding a great realtor. Dave and Stef Holland get our highest recommendation and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again or refer our best friends to them. Less ... More

Dave and Stef were fantastic to work with. We gave them our criteria and they ran with it, constantly sending MLS listings via email and then setting up appointments for houses that we were interested in seeing. We bought our home as a short sale and Dave took care of every aspect of that. We couldn't have been more pleased with the house we bought and also the price that was negotiated. We will definitely be using Dave, Stef, and Scott the next time we buy a house.

We worked with David Holland and Scott Cruikshank and the Bend Living team. They are amazing realtors. Their creative partner, Stefanie, presented the house with great staging and design. The pictures taken really made the house features stand out so well. They have such a great pulse on the market and even suggested a higher price than I thought we could get for the house. With some great negotiating on Scott Cruikshank's part, we received an almost full price offer on the house. Throughout the process, Scott, Dave and Stefanie were so great to work with and felt like they were in the process with us the whole way. We recommend them highly! Less ... More

Dave and his team did an excellent job in helping us sell our home. Dave was very knowledgable about all aspects of our transaction and exceeded my expectations of making sure we were always informed through the entire process. He made sure he was always available to us when we needed to contact him and was prompt in returning information. I will use him again in future transactions and recommend him to others! Thanks Dave.

We bought our house with financing at a live auction for $20,000 under the appraised value. David carried us every step along the way. He insured every process required by the lender was carried out even when it cost him his own time and materials. The best thing about David Holland is that he thinks outside the box. If there is a deal in Central Oregon, he'll know about it and can get you there. When it comes to unconventional purchasing methods, Dave is creative, knowledgeable and aggressive on behalf of his client. We are richer since we've been his clients, and we'll use him again and again. Less ... More

David and his associate Stefanie obtained a below market value second home for us. They were thorough and thoughtful in their approach--we reviewed many homes, and bid on several, before we were successful in getting just the right property. They were always prompt, always professional, and never failed to go the extra mile. As an example, the home had been vacant for some time, and needed a new septic system. David determined there had been a bid on the septic system when another party was interested in the home. Because of his extensive network of contractors and tradespeople he was able to get the contractor to honor the bid even though it was about a year old. David is adept with technology as well. We live in another state, and the entire set of transactions was handled electronically. We love our home and would only do business with Holland Property Group should we decide to acquire more property in the Bend area. Less ... More

David Holland did an excellent job by selling our home in September 2010 within 2-3 weeks at a price that was acceptable to us barring the downturn in the economy and housing market. He also found us another home at a great price that was only 9 years old within an established and well-pleasing neighborhood predominately comprised of retirees. We would utilize him in future transactions.

Working with David Holland was great-- it felt like no client was too big or too small for him! He really put in the time and effort to make many property listings available to us. David was a great communicator and great at keeping in touch during my home buying process. Highly recommend him and his team!
