Dave was great to work with. He created a wonderful video of my place, and actually had a buyer they day it went on the market... BUT it was a short sale, and the Bank was a royal pain in the ***.... It took 2 years to close this place! But Dave hung in there, was optimistic, and although it fell in and out of a sale, about 6 times, due to the banks ridiculous actions, he always had another buyer ready... and it finally closed!

Dave embodies the Hawaiian lifestyle. He is full of aloha and always has a smile. There are a lot of things you dream of doing in Hawaii and Dave does many of them... He surfs, kite surfs and he contributes to the local community by serving various local organizations including the Haleakala Waldorf school. We always enjoyed seeing Dave. We worked with him about 8 months until we found our new home.

Dave did a really god job for us. He was very professional in an easy (not uptight) way. He had very good marketing ideas that really made the house move. He was very "available" when ever any questions from us came up. During the listing he let us know about showings and let us know the comments from prospective buyers about the property. The escrow went really easily thanks to Dave and his staff (go Shawnna !!)- they were really ahead of the game with what needed to happen to help escrow along- we were even able to close early on the deal ! He really made our experience a pleasurable one. Dave has been our "go to guy" for years whenever we have needed a real estate opinion on the different projects we have done. Less ... More

Dave was wonderful! He is a great guy who really helped me and my family through the complicated process of buying a home. He even took time between his own surgery to stay in touch and help push for early closing. He was like my own personal attorney looking out for my interest in this purchase. He has a lot of experience here in Hawaii and especially on Maui with market trends and will share this insight with you. I am now setting in our new wonderful home, thanks to Dave.

If you're looking for a great realtor, choose Dave Futch. As first time home buyers, we really didn't know what to expect. Thankfully, Dave did. He made the entire process very smooth. He was able to get a stubborn seller to negotiate down to a price that was comfortable for us. As soon as I would express any concern, he would address it and have it taken care of. He is a patient and knowledgeable realtor that listens to your needs and thanks to him, we are in a home that we love!

Dave spent a full year patiently and persistently helping us find our perfect home on Maui, and we now live in our absolute dream home and location.He is incredibly responsive and fast in getting you to showings and putting together offers in this market where time is of the essence and inventory is often low. He is super helpful..very connective..and has positive relationships throughout the Maui community, very important in buying a home. Dave is upbeat and positive and goes the extra mile for his clients every time. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Christine Warren and Kenn Holsten, happy homeowners in Haiku Less ... More

Dave is patient, educated and full of the aloha spirit. We were in a rather long and complicated escrow and Dave was a great guide through the legal and real estate difficulties. He listens well and responds with patience and right action. He was also the agent for the sellers and was able to maintain a fair and balanced way of keeping things on track and open. We are delighted with our purchase and with Dave's good efforts on our behalf.

Dave was instrumental in helping get a very difficult property marketed and sold. There were many geographical and title issues involved. Dave was persistent, patient and very professional throughout the entire process. I live in Florida, so I placed a lot of trust in Dave to sell this lot in Hawaii and it paid off!

Dave is very knowledgeable and helped our family find our future home in north Maui. He listened to our needs and was very patient throughout the entire process, especially while working with buyers who were searching remotely (e.g. from the mainland). I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone searching for property on Maui.

We contacted Dave from his Zillow ad. Working long distance, Dave found us the ideal home in our price range in Haiku. The escrow turned out to be complicated and the process a little tricky, but Dave managed to smooth everyone's feathers and keep the transaction on track. His knowledge of real estate is outstanding. In addition, Dave is very pleasant to be around. He truly embodies the aloha spirit.

Dave knows Maui! He will listen carefully to you and asks the right questions to help you refine your search for the perfect property to meet your needs. You'll have an amazing time driving around the island looking at properties with Dave, he's very entertaining and a great guy, lots of interesting stories. When you find the property you want to purchase, he is tenacious and skillful at closing the deal, but still manages to keep the process fun. Dave helped me purchase multimillion dollar beachfront property in West Maui. There were many obstacles to overcome to bring the deal together and I was glad Dave was on my side. You won't find a realtor better than Dave Futch, I highly reccommend him! Rick Ehlers MD Less ... More

We are very pleased with the professionalism of Dave. He has the knowledge to make the sale of our home easy and comfortable for us. Selling your home can be very stressful, but Dave was able to keep our fears at bay and made the entire process painless. I would recommend him to anyone selling or purchasing a home. Should we decide to purchase or sell property again I would go right back to Dave for his assistance. Thanks Dave you are the best!!!!!!!!!

Based on a beautiful virtual presentation of our Haiku home,we had 2 offers within 2 days of listing! Final closing was completed within seven weeks of listing! All this was expedited by the thorough and professional expertise of Coldwell Bankers' David Futch. His suggestions for making minor repairs and improvements as well for staging helped us present our home in the best possible light. Also instrumental in the quick and smooth sale was David's keen knowledge of the Maui real estate market. It was a pleasure (and fun!) to work with him. We would highly recommend David to anyone who is serious about selling their home and would enjoy working with a friendly and market-savvy professional. Less ... More

Over the years I have worked with top realtors in Virginia, New Mexico and Hawaii. Dave Futch ranks as the best I have worked with yet. He is dedicated, has high integrity, and is unfailingly positive. He has extensive knowledge of how real estate works on Maui, which can be very different from the mainland. Not only that, he is plugged into using the latest technology to show and sell properties. If you want a truly professional realtor, respected by other real estate professionals on the island, there is no one better than Dave Futch. Less ... More

I wish there were a few more stars I could put after Dave Futch's name in all categories. From the first time I spoke to him about purchasing a home on Maui to days after escrow closed, he has been the type of agent, the type of person that one would want to be represented by. We just can't recommend Dave highly enough. If you are seeking to work with an agent who is responsive, bright, thorough, experienced, well networked with all necessary contacts, honest, and intuitive then look no further, Dave shines beyond all expectations. He helped our family find and successfully purchase our piece of paradise in Haiku. Not being on island during the entire escrow period was a bit nerve racking at first but Dave eased our concerns through every step and made everything so effortless for our family. Finally, I'd have to say on a personal note, Dave is such a positive, life loving individual. We would strongly recommend Dave! - the kubinski family Less ... More

I'm from Alberta, Canada and was looking for a warm place to spend my winters. Dave came recommended to me from another realtor on Oahu who was also highly recommended to me by a friend in Canada who had purchased there. I made contact with Dave and described what I was generally looking for including a few potential scenarios as different options come up that make you look at your needs a little differently with the right advise. Dave patiently worked with me over the internet for about 6 months off and on until we found a few very good choices and I made an offer. Every thing I was thinking that I needed to feel more assured about a particular property Dave was there to help me through it. I found Dave very impressive starting with his patience and knowledge of Maui as he managed every aspect of the purchase with a great deal of skill and made me feel very comfortable though out the entire process. As well his choice of escrow support and property manager was very good. Dave was also able to offer so much more in regards to contacts for all aspects of my condo purchase and was always consitantly very helpful every time I contacted him. I certainly feel very comfortable recommending Dave to any one that needs to buy or sell a home and I assure you that you will be very satisfied with every aspect of your experience. Less ... More

Dave Futch is the greatest realtor that I have ever had. Not only did Dave listen to the concerns of seller he took those concerns to heart and made this experience one that we will never forget. He is very professional, responsive, caring, and honest. I would fully recommend Dave to anyone that I know who is looking to sell a home and get it done quickly. Dave never stopped marketing our home. He continued being a great realtor all the way to the end. The Schwindler Family.

We would highly recommend Dave for both buying and selling a home. He is a great communicator and a master negotiator. He is highly motivated with an ability to think outside the box to make deals happen. We had a very unusually tricky escrow process. We put an offer in with Dave on a house pending the sale of our own home. The sale of our home took 5 months to close due to falling out of escrow once as well as numerous unfortunate and unpredictable circumstances that were out of our control. Dave filed countless extensions on our behalf on the new home and kept the deal alive with his clients/sellers. This was not your typical buying and selling situation, and Dave went above and beyond to make this deal happen and managed to keep both the buyers and sellers happy which is not always an easy task. We would definitely use Dave again as our agent! Less ... More
