Testimonials

We used Davis to sell our family home this past Fall. As out of town owners, Davis made it incredibly easy to manage the process, prepare the property for showings and also list the home. He gave updates every day with activity, which we really appreciated. We chose him over another agent because he believed in the value of the home. The other interviewed agent wanted to list much lower. All in all, it was a great experience, highly recommended.

Davis is absolutely amazing! 

Davis helped us sell a piece of property that took over 6 months to close. He was patient and helpful throughout the entire process. We were living on the east coast so Davis handled everything. From multiple appraisals, working with the city to navigate red tape, to even coordinating with my renters to find time for appointments. 

Davis always goes above and beyond and then some! He makes you feel like you are a VIP client. We can't wait to work with him again.

My experience working with Davis was outstanding. This was the second time we've worked together; the first time was to purchase my loft when he was at Redfin and this time was to sell it with Climb. Davis is professional, very knowledgable of SF real estate, diligent, and responds quickly to my texts, emails, and phone calls.

He was always available, including nights and weekends, and went above and beyond compared to other realtors I've worked with. Davis even took care of arranging movers to store my furniture while I was unavailable. He was a proactive representative on my behalf when I was out of town; he kept me well informed from beginning to end.

Having Davis on your team is not only like having a realtor, it's also like having a project manager throughout the whole process. He made the process less stressful for me. It was a pleasure working with Davis and I'd recommend working with him without hesitation.

We met Davis at an open house he was hosting. Right away we knew we wanted to work with him. When we became earnest in our home search a couple of weeks later, he set up an in home meeting right away. Davis did not disappoint! Throughout the entire experience, he was responsive, reliable, and   diligent. When we finally found "the one," he went above and beyond to help us get our home.

On a side note, he's also great with kids, our 4 year old loved him!

Davis has an impeccable reputation for a good reason - he's the best there is. He coached us purchase our first home and walked us through the process every step of the way. We found his knowledge of the market to be spot-on. Even in hyper-competitive San Francisco, we were able leverage his  expertise and offer strategy to find a house in a prime location for well below the market $/sq ft. We've heard of horror stories of people putting in as many as 12 offers before they were able to win. With Davis, it only took 2.

Time and time again, he went the extra mile to make sure our concerns were met. He was also incredibly responsive. It was rare that he would ever respond more than a few minutes after we contacted him and usually his response was "don't worry" I'll handle it - and he always did! 

I give my highest of recommendations to this guy. If you're going to buy in SF, you gotta go with Davis.

There are few people that I have worked with in any capacity of my life that I would recommend more strongly than Davis Pemstein.

Buying a house is not easy. It can be crazy. Nerve-wracking. Incredibly time consuming. And, especially for first-time buyers, it can be extremely intimidating.

That's where Davis comes in.

He worked tirelessly every step of the way to ensure that we found a place that we loved. Vetted homes for us to look at based on what he thought we'd like. Was realistic with us in terms of what we could afford. Arranged showings for us at the drop of a hat. Was our emotional counsel us through the offer process. Went out of his way to encourage the listing agent to select us amid the several offers submitted. And checked in every step of the way to ensure a smooth close.

It's one thing to have an agent that helps you through the logistics of finding a place and facilitates a transaction. It's an entirely different thing altogether when you're working with an agent that has your back. That understands the emotional rollercoaster of buying a house in SF. Who says that he'll be there at any time to answer any questions or address any concerns - and actually means it. Who's genuinely as excited as you are when he calls to tell you that your offer was accepted. 

Davis is all of these things and more. We absolutely would not be in our new place without his diligence, his patience, and his hard work. So do yourself a favor, and let him help you find your dream home. Just be sure that you're ready for a response when you email or text him, because it'll be there almost before you hit "send."

Davis was absolutely critical to my home buying process and was excellent in navigating what was an excruciating path. We had unfortunately run into many problems with the lender, but Davis provided the communication, information, and professionalism that I was lacking from my bank. From the start, Davis was helpful in searching for homes and in providing the right guidance for me to get accepted. Once that was done, he was on top of all the parties to cross the finish line. My close was extended multiple times, and Davis helped provide realistic expectations and was flexible in accommodating multiple demands from the various parties, including handling negotiations between myself and the seller.

Although there were many challenging situations that put Davis in tough spots, I thought he navigated them with fluidity and a "problem-solving" attitude. He also had the resources (including his firm, ClimbSF) to help us overcome the obstacles. Moreover, he was available weekends and evenings, providing above-and-beyond service. 

Should that day come when I would either buy a new home, or even sell, I would surely be looking for Davis' assistance. I know that he had encompassed a level of commitment that can only define the very purpose and outstanding characteristics of a buyer's agent.

We cannot speak more highly of Davis — he is a class act, the real deal. Extremely knowledgable about the home buying (and selling) process, works tirelessly on behalf of his clients, and all around just a great guy. 

We were lucky to meet Davis at an open house one day when he was stepping in for the listing agent. We started chatting about the housing market, and almost immediately my husband and I knew that we wanted to work with him. We just purchased our first home, so we were very new to the whole process, and he walked us through every step of the way.

He’s very knowledgeable and well-connected in the SF market, and gave us valuable tips and recommendations without being pushy. But most importantly, he quickly came to understand what we were looking for, and could tell when we weren’t totally in love with a place. Without a doubt he had our best interests in mind, and making sure we closed on our dream home was his highest priority.

We have recommended Davis to everyone we know who is beginning the process, and we’ll continue to do it for years to come.

I recently bought a condo with Davis and have to say that he was absolutely incredible throughout the whole process. I came into it thinking I wanted to buy a place, but really having no idea about buying a house.

He was extremely patient and helpful, explaining how everything goes and took me around to a bunch of places to help me get a sense of what I was looking for. I learned a lot about myself throughout the process, and he was very good at pointing out non-obvious things to me.

After many months, I finally got a sense for what kind of place in what neighborhood I was interested in buying. I wasn't in any hurry, and Davis was very good about not pressuring me. But we began to get serious. I stopped visiting many places, and was pretty busy with my life, so I wasn't able to go to many open houses. But Davis had a great sense at that point about the type of place I was interested in, and sent me consistently solid places to check out. And when it came time to start putting in some offers, he helped research the recent comparables, so I'd have a good idea of what other similar properties went for, and could get a sense of how much I'd have to offer.

I thought the whole process would have taken longer than it did, but amazingly, my second offer got accepted. After that, Davis did a good job managing the entire closing process, helping me close on time. There was an overwhelming flood of forms and things to look at, but Davis was good about flagging the important things for me, and helping guide me through that process as well.

Davis helped handhold me through the entire homebuying experience, and I'm really glad that I had him there for me. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone else.

A lot of my friends are interested-to-be first time house buyers, and they ask me whether buying a condo was hard. How did I know what to do? How did I get it closed so quickly? I just tell them it was all Davis.

This is the guy you want on your side if ANYTHING goes wrong during a real estate transaction. We cannot recommend Davis highly enough.

Davis did a great job leading us through the turbulence of the financing and escrow process. He was extremely responsive and available for any questions and concerns that came up along the way, and helped us overcome all the large and small difficulties along the way. I would definitely recommend Davis to my friends and colleagues!
