We both purchased and sold property through Dave. He was very professional, informative, and helpful in both instances. He truly works for the buyer and the seller. He had helpful suggestions to enable us to be a better buyer and seller. I would highly recommend him for your real estate needs. We now know why he is salesman of the year for so many years.

Dave is very knowledgeable and professional. He worked countless hours to help me find the perfect vacation home. His guidance through the inspection process was invaluable, and his negotiation skills insured a successful closing on my home purchase. After closing, the seller admiringly commented on how often Dave visited the house in my absence to check on the progress of repair work. I could not have done this without him!

Dave has actually helped us as buyers and sellers on separate transactions. Dave has always responded to our messages promptly and has operated with the utmost professionalism. He has a unique ability to bring up pro/cons that you may have not thought of before, and he seemed to be able to "read" what we were looking for when buying as well as selling. Dave also has the unique ability to challenge assumptions in a non-threatening manner. We would utilize his services again.

Dave is fantastic! We bought our dream piece of oceanfront land with him. Dave really helped us negotiate considerably to a price that fit our budget. He handled the entire situation with skill and finesse. Not only did he act as our relator, but then went above an beyond to personally help us reestablish some stabilizing plants on our sand dune. We are currently out of state, and it is really comforting to know there is someone close by who has your best interest in mind. Thanks so much Dave!

Dave is the definition of dedicated. We achieved a sale of our home in a specific timeline with a price we were happy with. My wife and I were located in California and Florida due to a new job. Dave worked through the challenges this presented with finesse. When I needed to contact Dave, he was always close at hand.

Dave was a pleasure to work with during the sale of our home in Indialantic. He discussed the sale strategy in detail with us prior to listing the home and kept us well informed once the listing was active. His knowledge of the market and successful negotiation skills were professional and impressive throughout what could have been a very trying process. We are extremely pleased with the entire experience and highly recommend Dave to anyone selling (or buying) a home in Brevard County.

Helped me buy home
Being new to the Melbourne Beach area, we needed an experienced realtor who could look out for our needs as well as locate a great property for my wife and I. We met Dave at an open house, but also noticed his name on so many signs in the area as well -- he seems to have more listings than anyone from our observations. The purchase my wife and I made was extremely professional, and the closing all executed perfectly in 30 days. Dave was key in making all of this happen smoothly, and ensured everything was done perfectly. My wife and I have made 6 real estate purchases and I couldn't recommend anyone more highly. Less ...

Dave did a great job helping us sell our house in Melbourne Beach at the end of January. First, he really listened to us and then gave us excellent advice as to how best to sell our house that fit what was important to us. He is extremely knowledgeable about Melbourne Beach real estate and his experience and expertise helped at every step of the process from start to closing. He is hard working and was responsive and engaged with us throughout. All went as well as we could have expected and hoped. Less ... More

Dave was very helpful in finding and closing on our retirement property although we live over-seas. The entire transaction was done by telephone, online, fax and wire. We had met with Dave in May to establish our parameters while vacationing in Florida. His follow-up was immediate and thorough, resulting in our closing in November. Dave's attention to detail and his willingness to go the extra mile keeps him in the five-star category. You won't be disappointed!

Dave is an amazing and professional agent. I was recovering from major surgery and Dave helped us find a rental immediately as our house closed rapidly. He took care of all the details so we could concentrate on moving. I would highly recommend his knowledge and judgement in real estate in Florida.

Dave was very attentive to my property, because most of the time I was not present. My next door neighbor said Dave was there "all the time". He did a fine job during negotiations, keeping me posted long distance. He also presented the house well in advertising and photography. I would recommend Dave highly to anyone wanting to market a property.

Dave is the best at what he does. A friend recommended him and I'll be recommending to everyone I know in the area. Our acceptable beachside window in Brevard was very, very small, but Dave's lifelong knowledge of the area helped him to easily guide us to the perfect home that went above anything we could have hoped for. His recommendations for every part of the process (financing, inspectors, handyman, etc.) were integral in helping us through our first-time homebuyer experience.We honestly couldn't have asked for anything more. Hopefully he'll able to help us again down the road! Less ... More

David Setgast was professional, knowledgable, sincere and a heck of a decent guy all through the process of finding and buying a home! We let him know what we were looking for and he came up with properties fitting our criteria. Dave was amazingly patient and showed us properties and answered our myriad of questions along the way. If you are thinking of buying a property or looking for a rental in or around the Melbourne area, Dave is definitely the guy to call.

Dave was great in all aspects of our dealings with him. We were buying our first home and he walked us through every single detail, it was a short-sale and we were getting an FHA so we would have been in way over our heads with out him! He was also able to recommend a number of service providers, all of whom worked great for us.

Dave was a very patient Realtor who was willing to work with us for over a YEAR to help us find the perfect beachside home. He knows the area very well, understands the process very well, and was willing to always be responsive when we called after typical work hours. He was also a good negotiator, as he would discuss the details of our offer IN PERSON with the sellers. This has a positive effect.

Dave was recommended by a friend of ours and now I understand why. If you're looking for a home beachside in Brevard County, contact Dave. He knows the area and the market very well, and as a result he's been very successful in helping both buyers and sellers. We were very happy with Dave's work. He was patient, responsive, and honest in his assessments and advice. You will not be disappointed.

David is one of the most, if not the most, knowledgeable realtor I have worked with ever. He combines his extensive knowledge with a wide range of connections in the industry, such as financing sources, home inspectors, etc to make himself a one stop source of services to make closings happen. His professionalism, no-pressure selling style and attention to detail makes David Settgast a great realtor to work with. His follow up on everything related to the buying of a property with him, all the way to the closing table was impressive and efficient. David is the person to go if you are buying or selling a property in Florida... Less ... More

We've known a lot of Realtors -- we've had family in the business, and we've gone the for-sale-by-owner route before. Dave stands out from the rest. Always calm, competent, knowledgeable and trustworthy, he knows how to solve any problems that arise. We couldn't have asked for a more professional and enjoyable Realtor. Dave will be our first choice for our next real estate purchase, too.

My wife and I hired Dave to sell our home in New Melbourne Beach which he did. We got his name from some friends on the next block that sold their home with him. We asked him to find us a home on the mainland and we moved in last November. He is now looking for another property for us and I am sure he will come through once again. He is very diligent and always accessible. He has a congenial personality and we have become friends throughout the home selling/buying experience. I would highly recommend David Settgast to anyone selling or buying real estate. David and MaureenThynell Less ... More
