To Whom It May Concern,
It with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for our real estate agent, Dave Pedneault, of First Team Real Estate, Seal Beach. I first met Dave when one of his clients purchased my home in 2002, and was so impressed by his professionalism, that I asked him to become our seller agent for our home in Long Beach this year. My husband and I were very pleased with Dave’s expertise, willingness to answer all of our questions, and preparation for the sale.
Dave is honest, caring, strategic, unbelievably patient (I can be challenging at times), and incredibly reliable. He kept in contact with us on a daily basis (sometimes several times a day) and guided us throughout the sale process. When we met to select a buyer for our home, Dave scheduled a meeting with each real estate agent to ask questions regarding the interested buyer(s), financial worthiness, and why they were attracted to our home. This panel review proved to be very effective in the selection of a buyer. We know we selected a wonderful couple for our neighborhood because of Dave’s efforts. Dave possesses strong organizational and communication skills coupled with a winning personality that embraces all challenges. He is an extremely effective communicator and expert negotiator. These qualities are key in providing and accomplishing a positive outcome whether buying or selling a property.
We would highly recommend Dave Pedneault to anyone needing a great real estate agent. The effort, energy, and commitment that he provided went far beyond our expectations. We are grateful we found him and fortunate to know him.

Dave was very patient and friendly throughout the whole selling process. He was able to get me the best price for my house and worked diligently with me from beginning to end. I would highly recommend him.

My wife and I have been searching for our first home for about a year, and we met our real estate agent, Dave Pedneault through an open house. He is extremely knowledgeable in the local real estate market, and as we were new to the home buying process, he was very thorough in terms of explaining each step of the way. He made the daunting and unfamiliar process into manageable and understandable process. Throughout the home buying process from searching for a home to closing on the house, he was extremely responsive to our questions and concerns.
When we finally found a home that we wanted, Dave educated us on how an offer and counter offer typically work, the concessions we should ask and not ask, and provided invaluable advice on how to best position ourselves to get our offer accepted. After our offer was accepted, he worked diligently to ensure that our deal closed. And yes, we got the house we wanted!
I would absolutely use Dave’s services again in the future and I would highly recommend Dave to anybody who is searching for a home in Cypress and its surrounding areas.
A trusted friend/lender recommended Dave. Our previous agent had been a little lazy and we wanted to make sure we got someone who would get the job done right! From our first communications, Dave was ready to go. He got us great exposure selling and helped us weed through the potential purchase options. We ended up having a nightmare of a sell...buyers and buyers lender were extremely disrespectful, unprofessional and rude. And the purchase was a soap opera...with several name changes on documents, non-cooperation, and lots of caddyness. Throughout the 54 day escrows, Dave kept us cool and pushed the other sides agents when needed and pacified them when needed as well. In the end, he was the reason we stuck it out and closed both deals. We are grateful we met Dave and had the opportunity to work with him.

Dave helped me break the record for high price on my model of townhouse in Cypress Monterey by utilizing a very extensive marketing campaign and really good strategies. He was also extremely helpful in preparing my place for sale. His years of experience made a big difference in guiding me through the process and making the best decisions to get the most for my home. It also closed escrow in the time frame that we had planned. It was a great experience and I'd recommend Dave as an agent to everyone.
Dave was the best! He held our hands through the the entire process and explained every step so we would know what to expect. He gave us a projected timeline and he kept to it. It was the most pleasurable selling experience and I highly recommend his services. He got us an offer that I was only dreaming about and I can't thank him enough. We sold our condo in a little less than two months and Dave's strategies really paid off for us. Thanks Dave!

Dave is a really personable guy. In our society we really have a lack of trust and you can surely trust Dave to know that he's going to do the best for you I was really glad to meet him I always felt comfortable and I always felt that he was there to help me in anyway that he could. Dave is a very honest and kind individual and I trusted his integrity and opinion with the handling of my business affairs. Thank you.
Dave is the best person for the job period. He is professional, experienced, responsive, and a joy to work with. Dave is the only agent we will use and recommend. We are thankful to have found such a gem.

Dave proposed a pricing strategy that was not even discussed with any of the other 3 agents we interviewed to sell the property. He backed it up with marketing and a very large network. With that strategy, we were able to get a record high sales price that was $44,500 higher than another property that closed escrow on the same day as our sale. That property was the exact same floor plan, in excellent condition, in the Influential Townhomes, with a very comparable location. Our end result was a home run! Ours was the highest sales price in the complex and it happened in a very short period of time.
After working with many realtors I find that he is the best. I would highly recommend him. he is very punctual, and professional, you can reach him 7 days a week 24 hours a day. he works very well with other agents which is an advantage for a buyer. He provides a good assessment to help buyers make a good decision. I am very pleased with his service.
Thanks for all your help in making our "dream home" a reality. We really appreciated that you went the extra mile to get us the best price for our home. You are truly a professional.

You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.
