About Dave and His Family

Originally from the Chicago area, my family moved to the Washington, D.C. Metro region in 1967, where both my parents taught for Fairfax County Public Schools. After growing up in Northern Virginia and graduating from George Mason University, I moved to Montgomery County, Md., in 1987. After first living in Kensington, we bought our first home in Gaithersburg in 1989. In 1998, we bought a new home in Germantown, where I currently live with my wife Jean and daughter Jenna.  Both my wife and I love our area and our neighbors and are active and committed volunteers in the community.

In addition to my wife and daughter, we also have developed a cadre of animals. We have two dogs, a Cairn terrier and a German shepherd, as well as three guinea pigs.

What I like most about my job is meeting people, learning about their lifestyles and needs so I can match them with the best neighborhoods and homes. Being a natural problem solver and task manager allows me to stay on top of all the tasks that need to be managed throughout the home sale process. When you are buying or selling a home, no one wants surprises, so I communicate continually with my clients so they know where everything stands and what to expect as the transaction progresses to settlement.

Most of all, it is my goal to ensure my clients feel very comfortable and confident that their home purchase or sale is in good hands and they will know that their best interest is always in the forefront of my attention.

As a home buyer or seller, you are about to make one of the most important financial decisions of your life. For most people, their home is their biggest investment. Whether you are buying your first home or fifth, you have many important decisions to make. One of which is to choose the Realtor that you feel will best represent your needs in the selling or buying of your home. Read more on what to look for in a Realtor when buyer or selling a home.

Dave was excellent throughout the process. He was very knowledgeable about the entire process, had our best interest at heart and always gave the best advice about what to do. The best thing about Dave is his responsiveness. He was quick to respond to all of our questions and concerns. He truly is the best agent that I have dealt with!

Dave was extremely flexible and met all our needs. We highly recommend him. He's the fifth agen we have used and by far the best. No one else was nearly as responsive or accommodating as him.

I met Dave Bender when I was looking to buy my first home, four years ago. He made the buying process as smooth as possi ble. When I decided to sell my home this time around, I thought of him. Dave has extensive experience and knowledge. He was always available from the beginning. He continues to stay in touch with me, even as the closing of the sale was a few days ago. Which is greatly appreciated and important to me, as I moved out of the area. He was greatly helpful in connecting me with a realtor in the West Coast, as I was looking to looking to find a new home. Whether you are looking to buy, sell or do maintenance of you home, his connection to resources/contractors is great. I would highly recommend Dave, for your next sale or buy.

Dave is an excellent agent for first-time homebuyers. He was very patient showing us dozens of homes and several bids as the housing market shifted on us. His market knowledge helped us develop a winning bidding strategy and we closed on our dream townhome in 30 days.

Dave was knowledgable, trust worthy, and did not push me in any way. He understood I was selling a house in a certain co ndition and worked with me. Dave made the sale and closing very easy. He prepared me for each step along the way. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone trying to sell a house. He was very easy to work with.

David found me an amazing property to purchase and renovate! He was instrumental in finding and securing the property. H e then was able to sell the property with very few days on market. When the going got tough, Dave got going!! He was critical to completing the sale and I would recommend his services to all!
Review by
Ryan Studner, Washington DC
I dealt with Dave Bender in the past, and came back to work with him on my second house because he did a great job on th e last house and we knew he would help us with our current home which we love. Dave was extra patient with us. He understood that we were in love with the home he showed us and that we were willing to wait for it. He definitely showed us lots of houses before we found our dream home. Dave is a great guy, and that's why we went to him for our second home.

Yves Borjas and Family
I had worked with Dave Bender while selling a client's home. He got an amazing price for her and I knew we wouldn't use anyone else when it was time to sell our house. We had moved out of the area before the house sold and there were problems that came up. He found reasonably priced contractors to fix things. He even offered to shovel snow! He was great to work with.
Review by
Kathy Randall, Gaithersburg MD
Dave Bender did not hesitate to accept the challenge of dealing with my mother's property, even when a short sale became the clear solution. He still pursued the effort with the same gusto and professionalism as a more lucrative opportunity. Dave's experience and understanding of short sales were invaluable to getting us through the entire process, from finding the right buyer to getting the bank paperwork done and then to a quick and simple closing. My family is grateful for his guidance and management of the entire process. If he made this sort of sale so easy, I can only imagine what great things he can do for any real estate circumstance!

It was a pleasure working with Dave on the sale of our property. He was very personable and remembered every family mem ber he met. He took excellent pictures of the property and in a timely manner marketed the sale online. Timeline was very important to us for this sale, and he more than met our expectations.
