Very professional. Responded promptly to our inquiry of a particular home. Met us there and showed us around, gave us complete details about the home, and offered his services for anything else we are interested in. We loved the home we looked at,and are still in consideration of purchasing it.

Mr. Fankhauser is a very knowledgeable and capable realtor. Nice guy too. We have never sold a home before and were kind of nervous about it but David has helped us through the process. He's made some great suggestions which we appreciate. He's also been there to answer any questions we've had and checks in with us regularly (keeping us up to date on the house).

We were so lucky to have Dave Fankhauser as our real estate agent. He did such a good job of marketing our home. He worked relentlessly and our home sold. We would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Dave! John & Janet Buehler

Buying a house can be a really stressful undertaking and buying a house in another state that is 800 miles away can be just downright overwhelming. That is where a good realtor can make all the difference. When my wife and I decided to move we started looking at houses on the internet and when we found one we liked I sent an e-mail requesting more information about the house. I expected that I would get a response some time within a week but 4 minutes after I clicked the send button David Fankhauser called me back! I was blown away by his response time!! As a matter of fact, what I didn't know at the time is that David was not the only realtor that my e-mail requesting more information went to. Over the next 2 weeks, 3 or 4 other realtors called me back and the first one that returned my call was nearly a week after I sent the e-mail! Having dealt with several realtors in the past, this is the kind of service I was expecting. The kind of service where the realtor gets back to you at their leisure and shows you some half hearted interest in helping you find the perfect house for your family. Instead, I was blessed to have David Fankhauser respond to my request for information in a blazing 4 minutes!!!! This was just a shadow of what was to come. Every time I called David from that day on he answered the phone and if he was without cell reception (which is very common in East Tennessee) he called me back as soon as he got the message! David is an extremely honest, hard working individual and he genuinely cares about his clients. He worked with us to find the perfect house. David is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. I personally liked the idea of working with a realtor who is a Christian! David does his job and takes on each task you give him with the heart of a servant and it is that kind of service that can take a very stressful, overwhelming process, and make it smooth and seamless. When it was all said and done my wife and I called David our first new friend here in Tennessee. If you are looking for a realtor to help you find a new home and to help make that process as stress free as possible, do yourself a favor and call David Fankhauser! You will be glad you did!!

We had a great experience with Dave. He spent the time necessary to find us property in our price range and with the views and utilities we wanted. He was patient and showed us a number of properties and personally walked the land and boundaries with us. He also had a good list of contacts for surveying and sitework to get us started. I have worked with many realtors on various property purchases but Dave was by-far the best. I would highly recommend Dave.

I wish I had Dave with all my past real estate transactions. He knows his business and is honest and you can trust him. You can tell he really wants to help in anyway and goes above and beyond what is expected. My wife and I have been looking for over 2 years in the area that we liked and when we met Dave we were blessed to have found our home so quickly. I highly recommend him.

Well, we are still unpacking and the stress of moving is starting to deminish. But finding our perfect home did not come easy...... at least not without help. After months and months of looking for that right home, and just when we were going to put off buying a new home for another year, David walked into this newly remodeled home he found and he knew right away, this was my wife's home; exactly what she was looking for. Several negotiations later, we are here. Just last night, listening to the frogs and crickets next to our new fire pit with sound of the waterfall from a creek on our property, I relaxed and finally got to take it all in. Tears came to my eyes, just thinking about OUR new home. David doesn't just sell you a house, or look for you a house....he finds YOUR house for you...... Nothing but thanks and admiration for this agent. I'd recommend him to everyone. Less ... More

I can't begin to explain what a great job Mr. Fankhauser did for us. He asked us the right questions about what we were looking for and our price range, then showed us several homes matching our description. After pinpointing our goals, Mr. Fankhauser found the perfect property for us. It had all the elements we were looking for and in the right price range, which was a huge challenge. Mr. Fankhauser helped us to negotiate through the offer process and continually coached and encouraged us through the entire process, which is pretty daunting and nerve racking. He answered all our questions about what to expect and always had faith that everything would work out fine. His words and actions were reassuring for us. To offer our gratitude to him just doesn't seem like enough. We highly recommend Mr. Fankhauser as your next real estate agent. Less ... More

I contacted David when I saw a house that I liked but had no pictures of the inside. David drove to the house and took pictures for me. The house is way over priced so I didn't buy it but I appreciate the fact that David took the pictures for me. The furniture came with the house and wasn't to my style. He responded to my request very promptly.

Dave worked hard to find a buyer for our property located in a limited access area. He was able to generate several leads and put together asuccessful presentation. I would recommend Dave for his knowledge to represent either a buyer or seller. The final transaction was handled very smoothly.

Listed home, but didn't sell
I was referred to Dave by a friend in Tellico Plains. I needed an agent who would evaluate my properties in Tellico Plains. I contacted his office and he returned my call within an hour. He went out to see the property and immediately called me back with suggestions, with what i could do to make my propertys more marketable. He explained that i had some good areas and what I could do to improve it. we needed a surveyor and a dozer to modify my properties to make them show a lot better. He arranged for the surveyor and dozer company and I told him to go ahead. He did, and before I called him back, he had completed the improvements. I have worked with agents many other times with homes and land, but never did I worked with one who was very proactive and realty made the improvements in record time. I would highly suggest the if you are selling a home or land to reach out and find this agent. Less ... More

My husband and I were looking for property in Tenessee and popped into Dave's Office unannounced on a vacation to Tellico Plains. Dave dropped everything and showed us property in Tellico Plains for several hours. We are residents of Canada and Dave's knowledge of the area and Tennessee in general has been extremely helpful to us. Dave is prompt to answer any and all questions sent his way and he goes above and beyond our expectations. It has been a pleasure having Dave work with us to find a lovely piece of property. Less ...

David was totally amazing! He worked hard with us on our out of state relocation, taking us to tour a number of homes including ones that were hours away from his local area. If you are looking for a dedicated realtor who will work closely with you and go above and beyond pick David. We're so glad that we did!

Dave was wonderful, not only did he show us lots available at Red Mountain, but he also showed us the town and gave us some background information. He went well beyond the "showing of a property" and reinforced that this area was a definite yes for our retirement.

As a commercial developer lauching a 17 acre mixed use project in the Tellico Plains area my experience with Dave has been excellent. He has responded to my every request and often provided additional important information or advice. I fully anticipate working with Dave on all future projects in this region.

Dave is the most knowledgable person in the Tellico Plains area. This area is dotted with fantastic Mountain views. River property along the Tellico River still running as free as when the Cherokee Indians walked this area. David's extensive knowledge and his love of the area made him a pleasure to work with.

Of all the realtors I have worked with over the last 30 years or so Dave is one of the best. If has been a joy working with Dave.We got to know David when my wife and I started looking for land in an area we knew very little about. The first few meetings with David were great because he spent time getting to know us and also teaching us about the area. I am very confident working with David we'll find exactly what we want. Many realtors want their clients to conform to their way of doing things (appointments, email or phone). David is all about doing what ever it takes to help his customers. We had timely and convenient dialogue with David via phone, email and in person. If you are looking for a realtor that you can trust will have your best interests at heart, I highly recommend David.

I met Dave 18 years ago when looking for a retirement homestead in east Tennessee. My wife and I drove into Tellico Plains, asked for a Christian realtor and were directed to Dave and his wife, Sandy. After a weekend of property searching and a years later, Dave showed us the property we bought and eventually built upon, not far from his and Sandy's home. We have remained close friends since. Dave is a well known pillar of the community and always alert and helpful to the needs of others. His work ethic is intelligent, proactive, far sighted and thorough. He gets the job done. I am blessed to have Dave as a friend and go-to guy for help. Less ... More

Dave was very knowledgeable about the area and was very intuitive as to what we were looking for. He showed us many great areas and eventually, thanks to Dave, we found the property of our dreams. He keeps in contact with us on a regular basis and is not only our realtor but has become a friend as well. Thanks to Dave for all of his hard work and would recommend him to anyone looking for great service.
