Testimonials

Dave was excellent at getting the deal done. He has a construction background so could answer a lot of questions for the “fixer-upper” property we were buying. Finally, Dave has an easy going personality which is delightful to work with.

McCartney Properties LLC

I was extremely happy with my realtor Dave Mallison. He was very involved every step of the way. He knew my situation and he went above and beyond from having to do showings at the last minute when other realtors couldn't be there, helping me navigate an easement and help me find contractors to do work to the property quickly and efficiently. He was very reponsive to my texts and emails and kept me very informed as well as my attorney. I am extremely grateful to have been able to work with him. I can't say thank you enough!

Joy Sherwood

I would recommend Pitt/Sotheby's if Dave Mallison were the realtor in question. He represented my mother in the sale of her house and was simply great. He communicated proactively, demonstrated great attention to detail, was knowledgeable and personable, and dealing with him even over something as stressful as the sale of our home was a pure pleasure. He also went above and beyond answering questions, and correctly revised upward by $50K the initial estimate by another realtor of the home's potential sale price.

Evelyn Ledyard

Dave Mallison was a great asset to us from start to finish. He made a good (great) faith effort for us bidding on one place, and when we didn't succeed, he doubled down on helping us find the perfect place. His advice throughout the process, from helping us focus on our priorities and "must-haves", to setting up looks at properties, through the second bidding process, inspections, and closing preparations was all first-rate. Thanks to him for getting us into our home-away-from-home!

Karen Rich & Christopher Fecteau

Dave Mallison is a fantastic realtor and advocate. Dave's background in residential construction allows him to thoroughly describe a home from the bones to the siding, and to offer very practical guidance on repair options, costs, and even design ideas. Dave represented our interests flawlessly and connected us with just fantastic local support for inspections and related items - all really good honest people, that we'll be relying on for years to come. I would absolutely send anyone Dave's way for assistance with a home purchase or sale. Michael & Olympia Thomson

Dave Mallison was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him as a broker for the Connecticut northwest corridor.

Pamela Davis

Dave was friendly and great to work with. He always kept us up-to-date on anything important to us and was responsive to our questions whether by email, phone, or message text. He was very knowledgeable about the area, and guided us through the process, provided good advice on selecting inspectors and attorneys. Dave showed integrity in representing both sides of the transaction.”

Brian L.

We have purchased many homes over the years and have never had a realtor that we trusted as much as Dave Mallison. His knowledge not only encompasses the traditional real estate services, but his background in contracting really gave us an edge when making offers. He was there throughout the whole process, always listened to us and evaluated our needs. We are not easy to please, but are extremely happy with our recent purchase. Thanks again Dave!

C.F.

Our family recently relocated to CT from California and we could not have done it without Dave. He guided us through the entire process from the opposite coast with a deep knowledge of the area as well as sensitivity to the ins and outs of a cross country move. In the end we found exactly the house we needed and gained a friend in the process. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to move to the area.

Caitlin Jenkins

We can't say enough about Dave. If you're looking to purchase a home, especially if you're new at this process, Dave is your agent. He is very responsive, knowledgeable, experienced and professional. While looking for a home, he quickly became aware of our likes and dislikes, knew our budget and was quick on the hunt with us. When we looked at homes, he had our best interests at heart. When showing us properties, he pointed out the good, the bad, and the ugly, but always respected our interests and possible choices. Through this process we developed a trust for Dave so much that when we decided to make this purchase we knew it was the right one

H.M. & D.C.

Dave could not have been more helpful in assisting with a piece of land I recently purchased in Litchfield County. Not only was he extremely responsive to any questions I had about the process, he went well above and beyond to ensure a timely closing. At one point some critical paperwork was lost while being mailed between attorneys, which could have been a serious problem. Dave personally visited the town hall and court house to procure duplicate papers and ensured a timely closing. I would highly recommend Dave for any real estate transactions you may be considering.

J.W.

Dave's extensive knowledge of residential construction was definitely an asset as we searched for a home in southwest CT. We looked at a few fixer uppers, and Dave was able to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses of each potential home, aiding us in our decisions. Dave also considered our love of the outdoors and found us a home we can enjoy inside and out with lake views and gorgeous hiking trails nearby. We highly recommend Dave. He was attentive, communicated with us daily, responded immediately with answers to all of our questions, and was confident in the negotiating process.”

Shari L.

Dave Mallison just sold our mother's old house. He quickly brought in craftsmen for some necessary repairs when they were needed, and he advised us on how to furnish and decorate the house for showings after we had moved half the furniture out. He negotiated with the buyers and offered good advice to us. We went from listing to closing in pretty much one month. Dave was pleasant and easy to contact. He was always helpful, responsive, and good to work with. Dave kept us abreast of each showing and gave us suggestions that might help with the sale. In the final stretch, Dave offered to help us clean out the house and do whatever was needed to be ready for the closing, which was way beyond necessary but still very helpful. We were very pleased with Dave's service and highly recommend him.

T.B.

I knew Dave prior to working with him as a real estate agent and his knowledge of construction was impressive and top shelf. I was looking for a realtor when I found out that Dave had become one and acquired his services immediately. Throughout the process of buying my home, Dave was extremely attentive and responsive, questions were answered quickly. Dave researched the homes that I was interested in and made sure that I was aware of and understood any positives and negatives in regards to their condition, etc. so I could make an informed final decision on which home would be mine. It felt great having an extremely knowledgeable realtor on my side every step of the way - thanks Dave.
