David Crowell - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

David Crowell is the best in the business!

We highly recommend him! We’d like to begin by saying, we received several offers within the first week following the Grand Open House! Our final sale was above and beyond what we expected! We were long distance sellers of a seasonal home we owned in Poway. When we decided to sell, we met David, and we were off! This was, by far, the best, easiest, most productive, pleasant selling experience we’ve ever had, and we speak from experience, having bought and sold several homes throughout the years. Not only were we dealing with David long distance from Washington state, he made it so easy for us, personally tackling everything from constant communication with us via phone/text/email, prepping and staging our home for pictures and the Grand Open House, taking care of minor repairs (he’s quite a handyman), and dealing with everyday issues that would normally fall under our purview, had we been local residents. He was at our home practically every day, personally handling issues ranging from repairs to appointments with buyers, appraisers, and inspectors. He did it all. In addition to all the daily work, David not only negotiated a price above our expectation, he also worked furniture items into the sale, which ultimately eased our moving experience. There were a few bumps in the road, as with any large negotiation, but David handled everything with great patience and professionalism. He kept the ball rolling, and we can honestly say, from beginning to closing, it was our best real estate transaction, and we can’t thank him enough. We only wish we could bring David to Washington for our next project!

John & Tina DiFalco

We were extremely satisfied with how David and his team represented us in our purchase transaction.

He is a true professional. In a very competitive market for the type and location of property that we wanted, he developed a winning strategy and went to work. He was proactive in gathering information on the property of interest and on the seller’s motivations, thus helping us craft an offer that met the sellers needs and our price point. Once our offer was accepted, he and his team were on top of the transaction, working with all parties to address any issues and to keep things moving along. He communicated frequently to keep us informed of progress and was prompt in returning our calls, texts and e-mails. We could not have hoped for a better real estate experience and have no hesitation in recommending David and his capable team.

David Crowell and Navid did an outstanding job in assisting me in my home buying experience.

They genuinely care for their clients…they are not just a number to them. Not only does David have an incredible understanding of the duties of a Realtor, he also has the extensive experiences and skills to handle other aspects related to the real estate industry. David followed through on all his promises and was able to resolve some complex issues that occurred along the way. During the escrow, the lender’s underwriter demanded some clarification to the legal non-conformity to the condominium complex. David took prompt action, went down to the City Operations Building, and provided the necessary building codes straight out of the SD Municipal Code to satisfy the lender’s request. David took the time even in the midst of his other escrows and transactions. Communication was outstanding! David stayed on top of every chain of events and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Without reservation, I would highly recommend David to anyone who needs a top and quality Realtor.

David Crowell is a real estate genius!

We worked with David a few years ago when buying our home, and did not hesitate to work with him again when we unexpectedly needed to move and sell our home. He helped us get a sale price higher than we anticipated and didn’t give up there - he also met with the appraiser to ensure our home was not under-appraised. He helped negotiate a favorable rent-back for us and helped us come to an agreeable solution for the repairs request. Most importantly David was very easy to work with and was super responsive via text, email, and phone at all hours - seriously I don’t know when that man sleeps. He was great and we highly recommend him for both buying and selling!

David succeeds were others fail!

My house was on the market with another Realtor and it expired without getting sold. David is the ultimate real estate professional. At our first meeting, David laid out who the buyer would be, how he would market to the buyer and exactly what the home would sell for. He delivered on all three and within several weeks he SOLD my house and the proceeds were wired to my account next day! David truly knows the real estate business. He was patient and thorough with all paperwork from contracts to disclosures to escrow documents. He has so many great relationships with service people from junk removal companies to moving companies. His connections and coordinating efforts helped take away some of the stress of this move. What really sets David apart from all other Realtors is that he genuinely cares for his clients and goes well beyond the call of duty. I am truly happy with the results from the sale of my home. I highly recommend you chat with David if you have a home to sell.

Barbara White

David is an experienced Realtor who has exceeded my expectation on the sale of my home.

During my initial search when I had conversations with multiple realtors, I anticipated David would be one of the top 5% of San Diego Realtors. After working with him on selling my 4S Ranch home, it has become apparent that not only my initial anticipation turned out to be correct, but I would undoubtedly consider him as one of top 1% because of his integrity, extensive experience, kindness and flexibility to support whatever needed to be done to make the selling process as smooth as possible given my unique circumstances. Bottom line is…I feel lucky for selecting David as the best choice and will continue using his service for buying another house in near future. While I was working in Irvine during week and coming back to San Diego during weekends, David helped me get the property prepared correctly for top dollar and a quick sale. He provided numerous service providers and was able to let in the service providers in my absence. He was hands on during the entire transaction and helped with ALL real estate and escrow paperwork. He had great attention and communication from start to finish…answering, texts, emails, phone calls from morning to night. He met the appraiser to ensure my high price was justified and not under-appraised. He helped me get through a stressful request for repairs negotiation and helped manage the fixing of numerous items. Selling a home has so many emotional swings. I’m glad David is calm and his hard work ethic helped me get a favorable outcome! Thanks David for being true to your word that you will put your client’s needs above your own!!

David is the most trustworthy and resourceful Realtor!

We met David 7 years ago when he found us an investment home. He did a great job because our native language is French and when we first met, he hired an interpreter to help explain the short sale home buying process in the USA. At that time we lived in New Caledonia and did the entire transaction electronically. After the sale, he coordinated a crew of contractors to come in and rehabilitate the property to rental standards. He then set us up with a property manager who helped us keep the property rented while it increased in value. Over the years, David was there for us…keeping us informed on our property value and the US market. He even checked on the property and spoke to the tenants. This made us feel secure as we live many miles away in Australia. When we decided it was time to sell, he again coordinated a crew of contractors to get the property in top condition and brought in a professional staging company. The only difference this time was the risk he took to pay for the entire renovation, repairs, utilities, etc…upfront. He had complete confidence in his abilities to get our property sold quickly for top dollar. He advised us throughout the entire process and patiently helped us with all the paperwork which was overwhelming. We are truly grateful that we had David as our Realtor and we don’t think we could have gotten the same care and results with anyone else. If you are considering selling or buying a home…we highly recommend you talk with David first. You will be glad you did!

David & Nathalie Point

David Crowell has been an excellent help for me just when I needed him!

I was looking for a house being recently separated, David provided a thorough outlook on the market nearby and walked me through the home-buying process with patience. He served as a buyer's and seller's agent for me and did an excellent job. He provided me a much needed discount on the house, which is the most important thing!

Farhana Chowdhury

Thank you David!

I recommend you. David came via recommendation from a friend and I am very happy with the service and support that he gave me in selling my home. From the beginning David exceeded my expectations with pretty much everything. He made the process easier than I thought he would, and the home sold faster than I thought it would. He went out of his way to help me in a difficult situation where most others probably wouldn’t and I feel he went above and beyond with the open houses and with helping me stage the property. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality and professionalism of the pics, videos, and advertising he did. Most of all he kept me up to date on everything and responded quickly to calls or questions. David gave me the impression that he really cared.

Ben Miller

David is a rock star!

He his group were retained by me to sell my mother's home in Rancho Bernardo in late 2018. The property had become problematic as it was located in a 55+ community and the market in that particular area was depressed. Further, the home had been on the market for about a year, listed with another realtor. After having spoken with David and his assistant, we released that realtor and signed up with David, as he assured us that with his marketing approach, he could get the property sold quickly. True to his word, David aggressively marketed the home on the internet and utilized his other marketing strategies and provided timely reports as to the status of our property. David also helped us correct some deficiencies in the home and recommended contractors to do that work at a reasonable price and then, supervised that work. He also staged the home and spent many hours at the property making sure it was as presentable and salable as possible. I can't praise David highly enough as he also provided timely and accurate market assessments to us and guided us through the pricing process to assure that we got maximum return on the property.

David is the best!

I'm so lucky to have found him! He sold my home in 4 days, and was extremely helpful with completing contracts, disclosures and escrow paperwork. There was outstanding communication from start to finish, he was very reliable and would quickly respond to text messages at any time of day. He was a big help in getting the house ready for sale by providing his network of service people to do painting, electrical work, carpentry and landscaping. He is also quite the handyman, and generously offered to fix a few things around the house for free. David has a very engaging personality and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.

Stefanie Smith

David is an incredibly caring and exceptionally experienced Realtor.

I had a unique situation where I needed to buy a property without it being contingent on the sale of my current home, which was in the middle of renovations. Not only did David get me a great deal on a beautiful home, he used his lending connections and financial creativity to get us a short-term bridge loan along with a great mortgage. From the moment I met David, I knew he loves to help people and takes time to really listen. He educates you while he unfolds his strategic plan. Completing a real estate transaction can be an emotional time. David and his team helped me inspect the home thoroughly and negotiate repairs. He patently walked me through ALL the stacks of real estate paperwork, including contracts, disclosures, and escrow documentation. David respects his clients and goes above and beyond the call of duty to get you an exceptional result. He gives you his complete attention and communication throughout the transaction from start to finish. He even checks up on you after the sale. I highly recommend David to everyone who needs his services.

I have known and worked with Dave for a lot of years and he excels at everything he does.

Working with him was easy and informative. He is definitely a subject matter expert and great person overall. Give him a shot and I am sure you will be pleased!

Mike A

I would highly recommend David Crowell and his team for buying or selling your property.

He has buy in from the get go and can help you maximize your interest in the property. His group is very professional and treats both buyers and sellers as if they are the only customers. I had a property with no comps and was very different than anything on the market. David advised me on how to make it much more marketable and really pop. Once we had it ready for market, his support team stepped in and Navid ran the open house. He was incredible at collecting viable data from the visitors and really made this process work. Through the showings of the house, I really felt that I had an absolutely top class agent working on my property. He managed the potential buyers, added in resources for loan support and dealt with all questions quickly. Once we had offers, he helped me sort through the most viable ones and came up with something that fit my needs. During the escrow process he was in daily contact with me and the buyers agent so that everything stayed on track. He also worked through issues with the buyers bank and we successfully closed the property. If you are looking for a top quality agent to help you sell or find you that special property I would recommend that you speak with him before you commit to anyone. If you do, you will see what a class act he is.

Steve Biggs

Who you work with really matters!

We found our dream home with a beautiful ocean view and needed a strong agent team to get our offer accepted among some competitive offers. David & Navid with RE/MAX made it happen. At every stage of the transaction, they were professional and easy to work with. We always felt they had our best interest. To top it all off…David was able to negotiate an exceptional credit from the seller and get some nice furniture to convey with the sale. If you are looking to buy a property or have one to sell, I highly recommend David and Navid to help you get the result you desire.

Nader Ostad

Extremely happy to work with David and Navid on my first home purchase!

David and Navid were very helpful throughout the entire process of purchasing a home. As a first time buyer, I felt completely comfortable with the process as they guided me through every step of the way and I couldn't be happier with the results. Their team was very accessible and responsive to any questions I had during the purchase. If you have the opportunity to work with them, I would definitely recommend doing so.

Ehsan J

David was fantastic!

We bought a new construction home and didn’t think of using a realtor until a friend mentioned it to us. We were introduced to David and couldn’t be happier that he helped us with our home. We knew the area we wanted to live in and he was able to give input on what to look for in new construction versus an existing home. Once we selected our new construction home, he went to all of our options appointments with us and gave us feedback on many of the options we were selecting from the builder. i.e. things to consider for resale down the road or things that would be easier for us to handle after close of escrow. As we got close to closing on the home we ran into many issues with our mortgage company. David stepped in to help get things in order and help get things to the finish line. Not only do we recommend using a realtor for any home you purchase, we strongly recommend David Crowell. He communicated very clearly to me and my husband and was incredibly responsive. He knows the industry and treats you like family!

Damon & Cheryl Barnett

David & Navid with the Crowell Group were exceptional to work with.

It was my first home buying experience, and they both made the process extremely comfortable. Navid set up the searches and took me around to view properties. He really knows San Diego and helped find the perfect home. I always felt he had my best interest as a top priority. David is super knowledgeable and a great negotiator. He truly understands every aspect of the home buying process. I found him to be easy to get a hold of and prompt to answer questions. If you are looking to buy a property or have one to sell, I highly recommend the Crowell Group to help you get results.

Ali Jarrahi

I wouldn’t want to be the Realtor competing against David Crowell!

In a very time sensitive and complex situation, David proved his ingenuity, detailed knowledge of the housing market, and most importantly, his mission to provide the highest quality customer service. Within a very narrow window, my pregnant wife and I had to sell our condo and find a home to purchase, and as promised, David delivered both in the brink of time. After helping to stage the condo on a Saturday and doing an Open House on a Sunday, his expansive advertisement strategies became truly apparent as we had multiple offers by Tuesday. Like clockwork, David’s experience in the housing market fit each cog effortlessly into place. Keeping my wife and I calm in a stressful situation, David provided expert step-by-step advice to take care of some minor issues in order for the buyer to lift contingencies and complete the sale. He knew all of the right people to call—who like David, provided excellent quality work and customer service—and even spent half of a day at the condo when I had to be at work. Tirelessly, he would sit on the phone for hours at many times of day and night to discuss and navigate us through the complicated selling process, while never asking to end the conversation without a proper resolution. Without the caring service David provided us, we would not have been able to sell in time for the birth of our daughter. In the brutal world of the competitive housing market, finding a good real estate agent is similar to finding a needle in a hay stack. While mediocrity oversaturates this profession, I can testify that David Crowell provided us with the highest quality service that led to a quick sale without jeopardizing the asking price. Thank you David!

Igor Krasheninnikov

David worked with us for nearly 10 months getting our home ready to sell.

We were very appreciative of his knowledge of the local market....and knowing what it takes to get a house sold fast, and for the right price.......ours sold in 5 days for well over the asking price. He and his staff were reliable, easy to contact, and a pleasure to work with. Choosing David as our realtor was the best decision we could have made. He made our transition into retirement so much easier!

"This is the second time we have used David & Navid as our agents and we will be using them again for future real estate transactions. They were able to help us purchase a home during this ultra-competitive seller's market. We beat-out 27 offers! The level of communication was top notch. They were able to implement zoom meetings, group texts, and 3-way calls (during the pandemic) throughout the entire home buying process. David and Navid's experience is immediately apparent, their professionalism is excellent, and they are also fun to work with! I can't recommend them enough!"

"I found David through a recommendation from a couple friends, and my experience working with him was 10 out of 10! David went above and beyond in every aspect. As a first time home buyer, I knew nothing about this process. David truly listened and understood my priorities, answered all my questions, showed me various perspectives, and helped me understand the options that were available to me. I was impressed by not only his tenacity, negotiation skills, and excellent strategy, but also by his compassion, genuine nature, and kindness. It was evident in every interaction that he had my best interests at the forefront of his mind and was actively working to help me find the home that would make me light up with excitement. I couldn’t have hoped to find a better home and it absolutely would not have happened without David’s hard work! I cannot thank him enough for all he has done for me, and I look forward to working with him again when my family grows!"

"Working with David as our realtor has been a breeze from start to finish. He truly put our needs first and we found our home in no time. He was able to help us find our home even though we were located in a different state. He made accommodations to make things work such as showing properties to us using video calling technology like FaceTime and we had meetings via Zoom and phone conversation. When I flew into California to see the home in person, he picked me up from the airport and took me to the property. He always had our best interests in mind during the every step of the way. He is extremely experienced in this market and was able to advise what comprised a competitive offer and always ensured we had a seat at the table in every deal. He had many connections throughout the area and was able to help us with contractors, home inspectors, lenders etc.Highly recommend David for anyone serious about getting into a new home or selling their current one.-Blake"

"Third time David helped me with my real estate transactions both buying and selling. Him and his team orchestrated the entire process so perfectly. From staging and listing the property to getting multiple offers and onto contract within a few days. More importantly he helped us get $40,000 above listing price!! It is a blessing to have an agent that you can trust. I highly recommend David and his team."

"If you are looking for a realtor, you have many choices. But if you really want to sell your home, look no further than David Crowell. When we first decided it was time to sell our San Diego home, we approached David who very patiently explained the process he takes his clients through (we hadn’t moved in 20 years and were a bit rusty on the details). His enthusiasm and obvious knowledge of all things real estate encouraged us that we had made the right choice in going with him. Although our home had been well-maintained and upgraded over the years, he had several common-sense suggestions to enhance its appeal to any potential buyer. Once we vacated our home, David got to work immediately with a crackerjack team to prepare the home for listing and showing. They had the place ready to advertise and list and scheduled several open house events within a week (one even during the unheard-of hurricane event of 2023). We had multiple offers in a matter of days and very quickly entered into a contract. As always during a house transaction, especially one that went as quickly as ours, there are multiple potential hiccups and questions, all of which David navigated us through with ease. He was on top of every detail along the way, always available to patiently walk through things with us. David skillfully, and beyond our expectations, negotiated the best outcome for us. We highly recommend him if you need a top-notch person to get your home sold quickly and for a great price."

"My significant other and I were first time homebuyers and David did a phenomenal job walking us through the home buying process. He is a very caring and patient realtor who is always willing to go the extra mile for his clients. David is always honest with us about the state of the homes we saw to ensure we were comfortable with any decisions and ease any concerns we had. We are impressed how much knowledge he has when it comes to anything housing related whether it was about house renovations, propety maintenances, propety managements, the housing market, and many other subjects. David's professionalism is the best we have seen, and it shows through the people he works with. Him and his team are very responsive, prompt, and made the escrow process as smooth as it can be. In addition, any affiliates he recommended like home inspectors and brokers have shown the same professionalism as well. We can always count on David to be on top of everything and give great advice. We are thankful to have met an amazing realtor and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home."
