Dave was recommended to us by a friend who had just used him to sell their house, and knew that we had just had a frustrating time trying to sell ours. We found Dave to be very professional in his approach to selling our place and gave us just the right amount of advice on the one hand, and feedback on the other. We received a good acceptable offer within two weeks of listing.
He was also very much on the ball in helping us find a new place, translating our rather incoherent, nebulous and sometimes contradictory needs and desires into a realistic selection of places to view, which resulted in us finding our new home which we are extremely happy with. He was also very helpful in arranging the disposal of a couple of "surplus assets" that we inherited with the new place.
We were very grateful for his expertise and advice in preparing both the selling and buying offers and contracts, and for making what can be a very stressful and frustrating experience as pleasant as possible - his "don't panic" reassurances were very much appreciated.
It was a pleasure doing business with him and we have no hesitation in recommending him.

We've dealt with a few other realtors in Nanaimo but Dave's professionalism, knowledge and dedication to us as clients set him apart from the others. Dave was always honest, straightforward and available. Phone calls were answered immediately or returned promptly. And we received the same care and responsiveness from the other members of Dave's team. With Dave we were never left wondering "what's going on". His counsel and guidance on the correct pricing of our home, in order to sell in a timely fashion, was spot on, as was his advice with the new home we bought. If and when we look for another home we would definitely use Dave again, we've already recommended his services to our friends.

Both In listing and selling property and in purchasing property I found Dave Knapp to be professional, patient, and knowledgeable. I would recommend him as a real estate agent without reservation.

We first met Dave at an open house he was showing, when we were somewhat interested in buying a bigger home. Immediately we noted his professionalism and he volunteered to show us other homes and did so without any pressure. Although we did not find the house we were looking for, we very much appreciated Daves attitude. Several months later we transfered out of town so we had three realtors evaluate our home. Dave's research, knowledge of the local housing market and prompt attention was excellent. Dave's superior service made him an easy choice to list our home. With Daves great 'connections' in the real estate market we sold our home in a matter of days. We continued to recieve Blue Ribbon service throughout the selling process. Dave revieves our highest recommendation.

We have been involved with Dave Knapp on a number of real estate transactions and his consistent professionalism and market savvy have come through for us each time. His calm, sophisticated and caring attitude combined with an acute awareness of market inventory has given us a leading edge, while both selling and purchasing a home. Dave Knapp is our realtor of choice and we would definitely recommend him to all our family and friends. He simply is the best.

Disheartened after a year spent with a realtor who ultimately told us that we would never find the kind of house we wanted on the island, we turned to the web and found Dave Knapp. Completely professional, with a manner that immediately put us at ease, Dave made our search a pleasure. Our greatest relief was that he never pressured us to buy or to justify why we weren't interested in a particular property. After only three successive Saturday mornings, he showed us the home of our dreams! Dave and his equally professional staff were unfailingly responsive, pre-purchase through post-purchase. From Vancouver, we relied on his impartial referrals of a building inspector and notary that successfully accommodated our time frame and our need to complete the sale from the mainland. Dave proved to be everything the testimonials on his site say he is and we certainly recommend him without reservation.

Dave is a great agent to work with. He is extremely professional, organized and efficient. He always provides prompt and thorough answers to any questions we have. Dave possesses the traits we are looking for in a real estate agent; he is patient in the home-search process, he is diligent in ensuring all of the details are covered when preparing a contract, and is attentive once a property is under-contract, making certain all goes smoothly to close. We were very impressed with Dave and will definitely work with him on any future purchases in Nanaimo. We highly recommend him!
