David's work as our realtor was outstanding right from the start. He walked us through the process, gave expert advice, answered any and all questions we had right away, helped us prepare our space and made every appointment convenient for us. David's calm demeanor and professionalism were present for the entire process and it really felt like he was by our side through the whole event. Our place sold quickly and for a price we were very happy with and we so appreciated everything David did for us. You cannot go wrong with this agent!

David Dufault is the best agent I've ever hired! He has a humble, yet strong confidence about him that is perfectly integral with the best levels of professionalism, character and experience. He has gone over and beyond for me and came out on top, in comparison to other agents of the past! Even down to the smallest detail, David is thorough! His photographer is absolutely amazing and offers a better eye/perspective then most I've seen. If you want the job done right, get true expert advice and high level service, then put your trust in David!!! Best agent I EVER worked with!

Working with David was a pleasure! He is very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the dos and don'ts of buying a condo in Chicago. We saw so many different places and David was patient with us and truly wanted to make sure we would love the place we ended up with. It took a couple of months, but we found the one and, thanks to David, had a very smooth closing process. I would recommend him to anyone and we plan on contacting him when we're searching for our next place!

David was our agent when we bought our condo in Chicago. He was very patient with us as first time homebuyers - never rushing us to a decision. His communication was clear and we never felt pressured to make a purchase we didn't feel was right. When we sold our condo we reached out to him again for advice on selling, and we chose him to represent us as our seller. On both sides of the market he was great to work with. I've recommended him numerous times to my network and will continue to do so.

David went above and beyond to help us relocate to Chicago and find the perfect home. Not knowing anything about the city, he shared great insight and knowledge of our prospective neighborhoods. We completely trusted him and it couldn’t have worked out better. Five stars, thank you David.

Repeat client here. I had the good fortune to work with David again on another buy/sell in an incredibly tight and completive market. David not only helped me make a considerable profit on the condo that I sold, but landed me a larger unit in my first-choice neighborhood and building. He always demonstrated great patience even when I was stressed due to the time sensitive nature of ensuring that my sale align with my purchase. In addition to being a true professional, he is compassionate. In the midst my transactions, I unexpectedly lost a family member. David kept both my sale and purchase moving forward when I wasn’t able to give my full attention to the process. I highly recommend David.

I don't know how I got so lucky to have stumbled across David's path six years ago when I was looking to buy and having a very hard time deciding between staying in Lakeview or moving to Streeterville. It became clear that another realtor that I had been working with before David was solely focused on closing a deal, and did not have my best interests in mind. I'm sure glad I decided to go to that open house on Kenmore where I bumped into David and really liked him right away. Unlike my experience with the other realtor, I never felt rushed with David. He was so helpful and patient throughout the process of weighing pros and cons, and had everything to do with my ending up in the perfect apartment for me. I can't recommend David highly enough!

David was an absolute joy to work with. There was a lot of prep work needed prior to putting our home on the market. Dave had the professional crews available to get the work done completely, expertly and in a very timely manner. The end product was exquisite. Dave had the home on the market soonest and it was under contract in 48 hours. We were prepared for a more extended process, but with the prep work and time to get things ready for market, no problems were seen. Dave kept us involved and informed throughout the entire process including visits to the home to make sure everything was progressing smoothly. I could not have asked for a more professional and caring person to work with. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking to sell a home.

We have worked with David for three transactions, he helped us get a great price for our first condo in 2016 and we used him again to sell that condo and purchase our new house. We were picky and not willing to settle - we searched for three years and David never pressured us into making a decision and would offer a fair perspective when we asked for it. We couldn’t be happier working with him - great communicator and always quick to reply. He worked hard for us and got us a price $50k over asking for our condo and helped negotiate a price under asking for our new home. It was a dream situation and we couldn’t recommend him enough!
