"We sold a condo and purchased a new one with the Dave Keefe Team. Every aspect of the sale and purchase was done in the mot professional way possible. They guided us through the purchase (which was done first) to help find financing, and to make a good reasonable offer. Dave helped us find a great designer and contractor to renovate the new purchase. They then helped us all with all the details of selling our condo, including, staging, cleaning, and moving. Dave, Jennifer, and all of the team were pleasant and easy to work with. We always felt that Dave had our best interests in mind. We highly recommend this team."by Estelle B., Palo Alto, CA 08/02/2017
"As a former real estate agent, I know that there are many types of Realtors available to work with. When I was left in charge of the sale of a condo in Sunnyvale, I knew I wanted to work with the best. I am so grateful that The Dave Keefe Real Estate Team was referred to us. From our very first meeting, I could tell we were in good hands. Dave and his team were very clear about what they would do to help us sell our property, and they followed through on their promises. As an out-of-town Seller, we needed some extra help in preparation to go on the market. Dave and his team were able to hone in on what was most important in our situation to best take advantage of the market. When offers came in, the team's professionalism shown, once again, as we were told of what we received and what Dave's recommendation was. And when some challenges arose in our transaction, as often happens in real estate, Dave and his team went over and above to make sure that we moved towards closing/escrow with ease. The Dave Keefe Real Estate Team is, in my experience, rare in the world of Real Estate - they maintain a high standard. If I ever need to buy or sell in the area, again, I would absolutely be contacting them."by Stephanie E., Sunnyvale, CA 07/25/2017
"Ben Dodge is a conscientious and trustworthy realtor who clearly cares about his clients and will take the time to give them the individual attention they need to get through the buying process. I would absolutely recommend this team to anyone looking to buy a home"by Lindsay B., Menlo Park, CA 07/05/2017
"Amazing team of realtors! Ben Dodge and his team provided us with excellent service during the purchase of our first home. As first time home buyers we had so many questions and Ben dodge was there all along the process answering them and following up with our requests to make sure the process goes smoothly and made us feel comfortable."by Ravi S., San Jose, CA 07/03/2017
"Ben Dodge is the reason that my wife and I were able to achieve our dream of buying a home together. We actually met Ben through a referral and were impressed with his experience, demeanor and knowledge of the market. Our process ended up taking longer than expected and we went through a few close calls before finally finding our home. Ben was with us every step of the way from helping us find places to touring homes and working very closely with our lender to ensure a smooth transaction. He and the Dave Keefe team are full service and really made the experience as easy as possible. If you are a first time home buyer and are tired of checking websites trying to find a place, give Ben a call and see if he can help you the way he helped us. Even after the close, Ben and the team have been great resources to help us get settled and start work on some home improvements."by Dan O., San Jose, CA 07/3/2017
"OMG pretty much sums it up. Dave and team was able to max out the selling price at what I thought was impossible. As a former builder he has a depth of experience that few others have. Easy to work with and a great team you are in good hands to max your investment or make one! He is my real estate person for life!!"by Patrick V., Campbell, CA 04/18/2017
"Dave Keefe and Ben Dodge are amazing at what they do! From the first time we I spoke with the team on the phone I felt at ease. The administrative staff he has on the team is also great and has fast follow-up too! We met with Ben Dodge to talk about what we were looking for--he listened and really took the time to understand our needs. No pressure sales at all which is something I have experienced with other agents. They made the buying process less stressful and scary so that we could continue to focus on our jobs. I would highly recommend working with Dave, Ben and the Keefe team as they take the time to listen and get to know you so you can make an informed decision, as well as, follow-up with you after the process is complete to make sure you are okay. HIGH HIGH recommendations for this team!"by Renee K., San Jose, CA 01/17/2017
"Buying a house is a huge commitment to undertake. As this is the second home we have purchased, we have already dealt with a pretty fair amount of realtors. It is sad to see that there are a lot of realtors out there that are just trying to make a quick sale. Ben Dodge, Dave Keefe, The Dave Keefe Real Estate Network, and Keller Williams are not those types of realtors. From the beginning, Ben started our conversation by sitting down and hashing out exactly what it was that we were looking for, what was our expectation of them, and how it is that they work as an agency. The transparency in their business practices is commendable to say the least. You can tell that Dave, Ben and their team want to create customer relationships for life. They are very interested in setting their customers up for a successful transaction of many to come. This is by far the best experience I have had from a group of realtors. I did not only buy a house from them, but I am also selling my old house through them as well, as they are very good at what they do. Dave and Ben's team have their customers' well being as their first priority and it really shows in the way they deal with any transaction from start to finish. Please do contact Dave and Ben for your next real estate transaction!"by Ruben V., Santa Clara, CA 01/17/2017
"Dave is amazing. Most realtor reviews are about how a realtor "sold them their dream home." Dave did more than that, he sold our nightmare house. He took a house we feared would bankrupt us, a house we couldn't even live in, and gave us peace of mind. From contractors, to mold remediators, to staging, he took over every aspect of its preparation for sale. He somehow, miraculously, found a buyer who was undeterred by the house's history, and got us out from under that terrifying ordeal. He allowed us to get on with our lives, both during and after. He did orders of magnitude more work, and conducted himself with leagues more professionalism than the unscrupulous realtors who put us in that situation. All while charging a lower commission. In a year where nearly every "professional" we paid to protect our interests served only themselves, Dave was the sole exception, Dave was the only one who came through for us. Dave is amazing."by Randall R., Los Gatos, CA 03/20/2017
"Dave and his team delivered as promised. They are great at the real estate game. Would highly recommend and use again."by Carla L., 05/18/2016
"I was introduced to the Dave Keefe Real Estate team in Dec of 2015 to discuss selling my current home and then buying a new one. I remember meeting Dave for the first time. I was truly blown away and very impressed from the get go. I am not one that is easily impressed and have worked with numerous agents over the years. For the most part they are a dime a dozen. The exception is the Dave Keefe team. This is the first review I have ever done for an agent. Dave and his team are definitely not your “typical” agents. They are very honest and never once pressured me. He is always full of positive energy and insightful with data driven information. He seems like a Silicon Valley entrepreneur. I was very impressed with his selling strategy from home upgrades, staging, listing price, etc. His team took control and flawlessly guided me through the selling process. Is it hard to sell a home in Mountain View these days? Of course not. But if you want to maximize the selling potential with a team that is very intelligent/ skilled and has a vast network in their pocket then the Dave Keefe team is for you. Plus they are fun to be around. If I were to sell my home again I would ABSOLUTELY use the Dave Keefe team. Once I sold my home I also used the Dave Keefe team to purchase a new one. Dave has an extensive background in home building. The bay area is crazy challenging when it comes to finding that right home. There is nothing like having a real estate team working for you that also has extensive home building technical experience. Yeah pretty cool to get a home walk through with someone like that. Also part of the Dave Keefe team is Ben Dodge. The positive energy on the Dave Keefe team is contagious and Ben has a case of it too. ? Ben was highly professional and went beyond the call of duty with many on the spur of the moment house request visits to putting together late night offers. He is a pleasure to work with, and is knowledgeable and efficient. He never once put any pressure on me. I look forward to working with him again. Overall I am very grateful for the help and guidance I was provided by Ben and Dave. It is really great to go away from the biggest selling/ purchasing decision of my life with a big smile on my face. I guess I caught the Dave Keefe team smile contagion too."by Michael P., Mountain View, CA 03/28/2016
"Dave and his team were very helpful in our search for a home. They were very personal and took time to get to know us personally, what we were looking for in a house, and not pressuring us into buying something that we did not feel comfortable with. When we found the house we wanted, they stepped up and got everything done that needed to be in a timely manner and took care of everything to ease our minds."by jarviskicks., Boulder Creek, CA 10/12/2015
"We recently bought a SFR in Mountain View, which with Dave's help, we got under asking price. During the whole process of looking for a house, Dave was very accommodating to our needs. He was able to work around our schedule and always made us feel as top priority. Dave is very resourceful, his background as a contractor was very helpful. He pointed out both issues with the house and potential renovations keeping in mind the city and county building rules and regulations. Dave is very pleasant to work with, truly listens to you and we highly recommend him."by Tzur N., Mountain View, CA 10/12/2015

"What can I say? Dave and his assistant Ben are the cream of the crop! Dave is a sponsor of my cycling team and was the natural choice when it came to selecting a realtor for our home purchase. I knew that an absolute beast on the bike would be an absolute beast of a negotiator. Dave was courteous, knowledgeable, responsive and kind throughout the entire process of buying our first home. From finding the right home to fit my and my wife's needs, to making a strong offer to avoid a bidding war, Dave was on top of the situation, down the minutia. We felt confident and cared for from beginning to end, the importance of which cannot be stressed enough when it comes to a real estate transaction. Dave and Ben reminded me several times that they are all about the human element of purchasing a home, which truly shone through time and again. You want to feel that you have a friend behind you---someone who really cares about you and your family and not just his paycheck---when making one of the most important decisions of your life. That's exactly how Dave and Ben comport themselves in their business. The stars don't really do them justice: make an appointment with Dave and Ben and see for yourself when exemplary service and expertise really look like."by Joshua T., San Jose, CA 07/23/2015
"I worked with Dave over the course of the last four months on buying raw land in the Santa Cruz Mountains, which closed just last week. At every step of the way, he was absolutely on top of the situation. Astoundingly so. Directly due to Dave's expertise, responsiveness, and professionalism, and fluidity at negotiation, I was able to get nearly 10% off the asking price, had contingencies on our offer that completely protected my interests throughout the purchase process, and successfully navigated the maze of Santa Cruz County Planning Office procedures to the point of having my well drilled and septic site evaluation approved. Even then, while I was struggling under insane workloads at my job to allocate enough time to the process to keep things moving, he expertly negotiated escrow extension, balancing my costs with the sellers' desires with thoughtful care. And he took up the torch with my contractors, getting them moving even while I was chained to my desk: a service I wouldn't have expected from anybody. His many former years in the general contracting business provide him unique experience that made him absolutely the best choice I could have made when it came to buying my lot, and I can't speak highly enough of how this all panned out. The way he executed for my purchase leaves me 100% confident that he would be an absolutely excellent choice for any real estate transaction. Moreover, he plans to continue to provide guidance to me as I continue with my building process. Having his knowledge at hand has proved to be invaluable, and I can only expect that fact to be continually reaffirmed. Dave, I can't thank you enough!"by Chuck E., Cupertino, CA 03/09/2015
"Dave is an extremely professional and knowledgeable agent. He was always very timely in getting the documents done and the place ready. He helped tremendously in sorting offers to help get the best deal. I was shocked how much he ended up getting for my condo and even more shocked when he got the highest bidder to pay a little more. I would not hesitate to have him handle future real estate transactions."by Tom F., El Dorado Hills, CA 01/26/2015
"Realtors are easy to find but ones that are thorough and knowledgeable are hard to come by. Dave stands out because he is not just a realtor but he has a background in contracting/ building, knows MV like the back of his hand (he is a long time resident), and his research methodology is like an engineer (detailed and thorough). He's helped us look at areas from along the peninsula down to Santa Cruz and would be on point with us as we are doing our research as well. He is great to work with and has been patient with us in finding the right place. I couldn't be any more pleased with him.. he's just awesome!"by Luna L., Mountain View, CA 01/17/2015
"Dave is a very friendly, caring, and a knowledgeable person and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him in our home buying process. It took us close to 6 months to find our "perfect home" and Dave was very patient throughout, in any kind of questions/concerns we had and you know there are tons of those when it comes to first time home buyers :) He made sure we "fell in love" with the place we buy and that is all he cared about. Dave was really kind enough to drive us around multiple locations in the bay and see what each had to offer in terms of price/sq ft and we finally settled to niche our search in Mountain View where we've always rented. We ended up going for a flip-townhouse and were really nervous on getting into it. After having moved-in for a few weeks now, we are very happy with the place and really, thankful to Dave for getting us this good deal! A few other details I love about Dave is he is a perfectionist and very detail oriented. Given his experience in construction business every single open-house we went he gave us very good information on fixing-up minor/major things which helped us understand the cost estimate we may have to invest in future. Dave would often take us to properties prior/after open house just so we had enough time to check out the property at our own pace. He was very accessible by email/call/text or in-person and has worked with us as late as ~2am in a situation where we made up our mind put an offer on a property last minute! I could actually go on-on about Dave : ) but I'll stop here and just say he is an awesome person and is more of a friend than an agent and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to buy or sell."by Bhavana B., Mountain View, CA 01/17/2015
"Dave helped us in buying a Townhome in mountain view. He is very well informed about the properties in the area. He also knows a lot about the construction business which was very helpful when we asked about how much it would cost to make a few changes to house. He is very good in estimating the price of home. He understood our needs and tried to get the best house for us which suffices all requirements and something we really loved. He was very responsive on all occasions and always kept us updated about the bidding process. He also kept us informed about the houses that were selling in the area. He was very kind to pick us up from our apartment to show houses :) ."by Nishant Y., Mountain View, CA 01/17/2015
