Dave was such a great help on buying my first home. He helped guide me though *every* step of the way and always showed true interest in all of my questions and concerns.

Mr. Stead was extremely responsive. He makes you feel like you are his only client. I have used him on two occasions and would hire him again. I highly recommend Mr. Stead if you are in the market for buying or selling your house. He takes much of the pain out of the process.

5 bakande

I have known Dave Stead for about 8 years now and he’s the only agent that I would and recommend anyone to do business with. He is professional, ethical, consistent, persistent and more importantly, “he cares”. I have done several transactions thru’ Dave Stead and will unequivocally rate him a 5 star agent in every area of R/E specialties.

5 rsl1967

I have worked with many real estate agents in both selling and buying property. Therefore, I can say with experience that Dave was by far the best agent I have worked with. He replied to all my communications promptly, was very patient in showing me properties, demonstrated diplomatic negotiation skills, and guided me through the entire process without a problem. If you are looking for an expert realtor in the Worcester area, then Dave Stead is your agent.

Dave sold my house quickly with no unexpected complications.

5 janel4

Dave evaluated and priced our house at the correct market value. We sold our house in 10 days with multiple offers. During the whole process of selling our house Dave was always there to help us and make things go smoothly. Our friends recommended Dave to us because he sold their house very quickly. Dave did everything right and we’re very happy.

DAVE FACILITAED AND COMPLETED A SHORT SALE APPROVAL FOR US, DEALING WITH CHASE BANK. WE HAD 3 LIENS ON THE PROPERTY AND THE SHORT SALE WAS COMPLETED IN ABOUT 45 DAYS. I CANT RECOMMEND ANY ONE OTHER THAN DAVE STEAD.

Trustworthy and knowledgeable, a huge asset to the team! Have had multiple dealings with Dave, from both sides if the table, and always he been treated fairly and represented professionally. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

5 MikeMac39

We had the pleasure of working with David on three separate occasions. His expertise of the Real Estate market is second to none. We have referred him to relatives, neighbors, and clients. He has helped at least 12 of them succeed in a transaction. If your looking for an agent, Dave the one. You don’t have to look any further! Get it done right the first time…

We have both bought and sold real estate through Dave Stead. Dave is the REAL DEAL when it comes to real estate in Worcester County and beyond. Whether it means making a set of keys, recommending contractors, installing a smoke alarm to pass certification, communicating with your counsel and the other party’s agents, you need not worry about the sales process when working with Dave. Dave is assertive and very well connected but still down to earth and easy to work with. We have completed a number of successful transactions through Dave and also referred him to a number of colleagues that have sold their properties quickly. Feel free to contact me further with any questions regarding working with Dave Stead.

5 ajchandler

Dave is great! He worked with me through a difficult set of circumstances we were up against, and I ended up with the right house at the right price. And he never put any pressure on me to buy another house he had listed. Through the process, Dave was nice, friendly, knowledgable, and available.

5 verizon595

I’ve had many transactions with Dave Stead and am completely satisfied with his professionalism and attention to detail. I would never use anyone but Dave when buying or selling a house.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Dave Stead!!

Dave always displays a high degree of excellence and professionalism. Time and time again, He has proven the ability to perform under pressure without sacrificing my bottom line in the sale and/or purchase of any or our investments. Trust me ! I have dealt with many realtors on many different kinds of transactions and some realtors just talk a good show, but none actually can preform like Dave!!! His excellent service and knowledge about the industry definitely pays dividends.

Best of all, His good judgment and expertise ensures the best ROI approach when selling or buying!!

Dave is a great asset to any home owner or Real-estate investor firm and I am happy to give him my wholehearted endorsement.

Sincerely, Ghassan Aswad

I first met Dave when I was buying my first home in 2007. He was the realtor selling the house. During that final walkthrough Dave was very friendly and professional, so when it was time for me to sell the house, the only realtor I contacted was Dave. After the initial contact Dave was over the house and walked me through the home selling process, took amazing pictures of the house, and gave me ideas to help stage the house for a quick sale. When I had additional questions, he was always prompt in returning my calls. Dave went above and beyond to help me and prepare the houset. I had such a wonderful experience with Dave that after the house sold, I used him to buy my next home. Dave’s tremendous housing market knowledge helped get me the best deal buying my next home. I also recommended Dave to my brother when he wanted to put his house on the market, and they were under contract in 3 days!

I highly recommend Dave to anyone who wants to sell or buy a home.

5 user9725144

Dave exhibits a great deal of professionalism and hard work ethic. He has worked very hard for me in both selling my house and helping us find our new home. He uses all of the latest technology to get our information out to the public for potential buyers. A pleasure to do business with!

He found our dream home for us! Thanks Dave.

5 user9160156

Dave went over and beyond to help us sell our home and find a new one!

His experience, attention to detail , and knowledge of all aspects of the process were invaluable .

. Dave was available , responsive and supportive . We would recommend him highly !!!

5 user572043

Dave gave us the best possible experience for buying our first home. We were novices and he was so patient with us! He made the process fun, he was very honest about each home we saw, and was available whenever we needed him. I’ve already recommended him to a few friends in the market for a new home and will continue to do so. We will surely use Dave again when we outgrow this home someday. We LOVED Dave, you will, too!

5 user2317002

Dave served as our realtor at a very difficult time. He sold our father’s condo in Worcester as part of the estate proceedings. Although the deal was worth very little to him financially, he handled it as if it were worth much, much more. Not only did he sell the place quickly for a good price, he also assisted in connecting us with a company that removed items from the place, and notified us about some important documents that we forgot in the condo. He was hands down the best realtor I’ve every worked with. Do yourself a favor and hire this guy, he is a consummate professional and will not disappoint.

5 user8802745

I used Dave as a seller’s agent in this very difficult market. He was very knowledgable and was able to sell my condo in 3 months without a loss! Dave was very proffessional and when I was traveling and moved out of state, he took care of all aspects of closing on my condo. I have used many realtors in the last 5 years and Dave by far was the best I have ever worked with. I highly reccommend him and if I could give him 10 starts I would!!

5 user5439432

Dave was very pleasant and easy to work with. He was always available if we had questions or concerns about the selling process. Will definitely recommend him to friends or family.

5 user8380191

Dave is extremely professional

Our house sold in record time. It was advertised in a most appealing manner and the internet access was exceptional.

He is always available for advice , and his real estate knowledge is outstanding.

His attention to detail, along with his communication skills and vast real estate knowledge place him on the top of the list as a sought after Real Estate Agent.

We would highly recommend him for the sale or purchase of your home.

5 butro

As a buyer’s agent, Dave showed me over 20 homes until we found a keeper. He knows a lot of people and if you have an issue, he typically “has a guy” to help. He obtained all sorts of useful information on his own initiative. A consumate professional and I am fortunate to have him working for me.

5 user3164756

I am a real estate paralegal and worked with Dave regarding my own son’s short sale. I work in an attorney’s office and we do many short sale closings, and this one with Dave was, by far the smoothest and easist short sale closing I have done in a long time. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a real estate broker.

5 user05161391

I have used Dave Stead for several home buying and selling experiences over the years. And I can tell you he is the most knowledgeable, professional and skilled Realtor/Broker I have ever met.

His expert familiarity with locations, knowledge of laws and regulations, and up to date economic status are not just an asset and a indispensable combination for home buying/selling.

In addition, his natural demeanor, listening skills and consideration for your individual circumstances (during what could be stressful times) far surpass the norm.

I will never use any other Realtor/broker and I highly recommend Dave Stead.

5 user0581821

Dave’s expertise and attention to detail was flawless in both the selling of our home and the buying of our next home. Dave made all the paperwork involved in each process easy, and he was able to explain each process in a way that made it easy for us to understand. Since the home we were buying was a short sale, we relied on Dave to guide us through that process, and we were able to close on a house we loved for a great price, in a reasonable amount of time. Dave worked closely with the other realtor to make sure the process moved along for us.

Every aspect of buying and selling our home was handled by Dave, or someone Dave recommended. Dave’s network of people was vast, and whenever we asked, “Do you know someone who does…” or “Do you know any good…” his answer was always yes. All the people who helped us buy our home came from Dave.

We enjoyed working with Dave, and we would highly recommend him to friends, family, and anyone else who wants a great realtor.

5 user2143220

Dave was made everything easy as much as possible during a difficult time. We had our house on the market for a short amount of time and negotiated for us smoothly. He was BIG help, thanks Dave!

5 user0721480

Dave handled the sale process from start to finish, which was a tremendous aid to me since I live in Texas. He coordinated getting the house cleaned out, the installation of new locks and smoke detectors, and getting it ready for sale in a very short period of time. The house received multiple offers above the asking price and sold on the day it was listed. The closing was completed three weeks later, with no issues.

5 RedBurly

I simply cannot say enough good things about Dave. Moving all the way from Houston to Worcester had its own challenges but Dave saw to it that the real estate end was simple. He showed me 13 houses in one day during my first visit, setting up the appointments flawlessly to allow perfect coordination. I never dealt with another perspective buyer, or the seller being in the house. Dave was very helpful with local information such as which neighborhoods were good and honestly telling me which areas I might not want to live near. He was critical of the houses for me and taught me things specific to houses in the north that I was not familiar with. I felt like he was constantly my advocate. When a new house came on the market after I had left Worcester, Dave offered to drive all the way there, shoot HD video of the entire house and narrate over the videos. I felt like I was there with him and it really allowed me to make objective decisions about the house from afar. Dave going the extra mile like that made my relocation process much easier and allowed me to focus on other important things around my move.

Dave has a “guy” for everything and was very helpful in the referral department as he put me in touch with someone to help me get an even better mortgage than I was getting and always offered to give me the name of someone to re-finish floors, or repair this or that.

Dave is the consummate pro, he is always answering his phone and always responded immediately via text or email. I selected to work with him based on his experience, but I will recommend him because of his tireless work ethic, knowledge, and kindness. Although this review might seem to good to be true, like something a real estate might write for themselves, let me assure you, this is 100% accurate.

If you’re moving to Worcester, you want Dave on your side – he’s a true class act.

5 user5107899

I have been very satisfied with the great service and personal attention I received with working with Dave. He is extremely helpful and knowledgable about the process and the community. He has been patient through the entire time of finding the right new home for my family. I will continue to use Dave as my dedicated agent for my future transactions and recommend him to all my family and friends.

5 user16467489

Dave was very professional and knowleable of his craft. He guided me through the entire process from beginning to end, and was always available when I had a question. I recommend Dave to any prospective buyer.

5 user6629760

We were in a very stressful situation, selling my parents home of 50 years. Dave went above & beyond in helping us. The whole ordeal went fast & smooth, thanks to his assistance & referrals. He is extremely responsive, and the referrals that he gave us for assistance in clearing/cleaning/legal assistance were outstanding as well. I could never thank him enough!

5 user36797884

As a real estate investment firm MintBlack Inc acquires and divest properties regularly. Dave has not only exceeded our expectation but is the standard to which we compare realtors to. His commitment to excellence and knowledge of local codes and comps is essential to our success.

5 user2756713

Dave was our listing and seller agent for our house in Grafton, MA. Dave is well connected and provided a big help on preparing the house. With his help we were able to get three offers in the first week the house on the market, and sold the house at the listing price. The transaction was also smooth. Very happy with his service and will definitely recommend.

5 user7968486

He is very easy to talk to and helped us with any problems we had. He was willing to stop by our house any time a problem occurred. He is very determined to make sure his clients are satisfied with everything. He explained the entire house buying process including every little detail. If it wasn’t for Dave, we still would have been living in our old house. If looking for a real estate agent, I highly recommend him and you won’t regret it at all!

Dave has done an outstanding job in selling our property! His value research was extensive and impressive. The results were provided in a professional manner. His marketing strategy leveraged the latest technology and produced a high degree of interest in the property! He took professional photos which highlighted the key areas of the property. He took the initiative when things needed to be done to sell the property. His communication skills are excellent. He knows the market place and uses his knowledge to position the property correctly in the market place. He is effective and get the job done in a timely manner!

5 sashawaters1

Dave Stead is an excellent Real-estate agent. I’ve worked with him in both buying and selling a home. He’s honest, upfront and diplomatic. As far as his expertise, he not only has an understanding of the market, but the kind of knowledge that would takes years to accrue. I’m very inquisitive and like to understand all my options and Dave really impressed me when it came to answering my questions. His level knowledge goes beyond that of an agent. I believe he’s been doing this for about 22 years. If you chose to work with him, you’ll be thankful you did! I’m currently in pursuit of buying another home and I wouldn’t work with anyone, but Dave!

5 mjcp

Dave represented me as a buyer’s agent on my first home & has worked for many of my friends and family members over many years. He’s professional, responsive and knows the central Mass market better than anyone. I highly recommend him!

5 user3551951

After having an agent for 8 months who 1. Didn’t show me property near where I wanted to live and 2. Didn’t fully understand my needs, I decided to go with Dave after a recommendation from my brother. From the first meeting, he showed me properties that were within my budget and guided me to homeownership and closing within two months. He was accessible for any questions I had and really worked in my best interest. I highly recommend him.

5 Izzy Cruz

David helped me purchase my first home in 1994 and since He has handled 5 purchase and sales. David is a true professional and I have reffered multiple people to David over the years. He always come thru usually saving thousands between negotions and speed of sale. David invests time and money on the latest services available to his clients including technology and it shows with every interaction. When I have a need for an agent or someone I know does he is always top of mind.

5 twilitezone99

I have worked with david selling 3 homes and buying 1 he is a well established realitor and all ways return calls he as well keeps u up to date on the selling your home I would use him when buying or selling a home

5 Southpaw280

Dave’s help and guidance through the selling process was most valuable. Our home was under agreement within 30 days of listing. Dave has a valuable list of resources for any issues that come up, which helped expedite the closing. I am highly recommending Dave as your net realtor.

5 mikesottak

Dave is consummate pro who made the whole sales process a very efficient and painless one for us. He was quickly able to develop many leads for our property and identify the most motivated buyers. He is a sharp negotiator and understands all aspects of the home selling process intimately. Thanks to Dave we sold our property much faster than we thought we would and got the price we wanted.

5 pamelasbowler

Dave is a very professional, personable agent. We had a very difficult buyer of our former home and a somewhat challenging short sale purchase of our current home to negotiate. He was there every step of the way, keeping us informed and negotiating to a successful outcome. I would definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.

5 ides03

Dave sold our house (a quirky 160+ year old property) within a very quick time frame at the listing price. Dave came to us highly recommended by one of my coworkers – I actually thought she was exaggerating when she talked about the wonderful way he had handled the sale of her home. Dave’s advice and understanding of the market, in addition to his positive outlook, made our difficult transition much easier. He was not only our Real Estate Agent, but also our psychiatrist, guru, and cheerleader – Dave kept us up-beat and moving forward when we encountered some big challenges in getting the sale completed.

He is without a doubt, the best agent I have ever worked with (we have bought 3 homes and (including parents’ homes) sold 4). Calling him “Superman” is weak praise – will just say that you cannot do better than to have Dave on your team for a real estate purchase or sale.

5 libbywestie

Dave is great! A consummate professional. He’s very busy, but always gets back fairly quickly. My only qualification is that he may have expected us to understand more than we did. If you need your hands held, you have to ask. He really shines in the first two catagories.

5 columbia_md

Dave was great in helping us get into our dream home. We transferred to MA and he acquainted us to the home buying process and financing options available to us. He quickly responded to all our calls and questions.

5 normanvincent

It was a pleasure to work with Dave on the sale of our house. He was always a call or text away whenever you needed him. There wasn’t a question that couldn’t be answered or a concern he couldn’t handle. I would highly recommend Dave Stead to anyone listing or buying!

Norman and Lina Vincent Extremely Satisfied Clients!

5 maura sanders

I Contacted Dave after my home had been sitting on the market for 6mo and I wanted to change agents. He responded very quickly, and was very easy to work with. He is very professional and really is an expert on home sales. He listed our house and had it under contract in 2 weeks! I would recommend him to anyone.

5 bsokos

A gentleman from day one. I would recommend him to friends that are looking to sell or buy a home. Helped us sell our home and helped us buy a home. He was honest in every way even with the difficult buyers of our home.

5 chickeileen187

Dave was so helpful with all my crazy questions..I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home..he’s right on top of things..very prompt in getting back to me and taking care of what needed to be done..

5 zuser20140724155919568

Dave Stead is a fantastic agent. He helped us put our house on the market, and it was sold within a day! Dave is personable, professional and takes his time to explain the sale from start to finish. Would definitely recommend him to friends/family in the sale of their home.

5 wheeler120

Outstanding job by Dave in selling our property. Very professional, responsive, and helpful throughout the entire process. Made this very easy, would highly recommend him to anyone considering selling or buying. Definitely worked in our best interest. Thanks Dave for a great job!

5 smeglinm

Dave was excellent to work with. He was very attentive to the needs of selling our house, was always accessible and I always felt the information and advice he offered was professional and in my best interest. He always offered to go the extra step to accommodate my schedule. Dave, and the real-estate attorney I asked him to recommend “John P. Morrison, P.C.” were amazing and really turned a stressful transition into a stress free experience. I would not hesitate to use him again if the need arises. THANK YOU!

5 roguenealer

This guy is intense, amazing and a pleasure to work with. He always keeps his word, gives prompt updates, explains things in details and if he doesn’t pick up your phone he calls you back even if its late. Highly recommend him and it took me 6 months to sell my condo went through a bunch of crazy crap and he eased the process.

5 kimchronchio

Words cannot describe the degree of professionalism and attentiveness Dave shows to his clients. I have personally purchased two homes with him, my mother has purchased a home, I have used him to rent a property of mine and recently to sell a home. He turns a stressful situation and confusing process into a seamless experience. Not only does he have the experience as an agent but he is also extremely trustworthy, often times offering his own opinions with respect to values, properties, conditions of home, and recommendations for properties to show. I just closed on a home this week and I could not be happier. This home was handpicked for me by Dave who understood exactly what I was looking for. Within three days of seeing it I had an accepted offer. I am thrilled and I have Dave to thank. Whether you are buying or selling a home I believe Dave Stead is the right person. Personally and Professionally he is a pleasure to work with and me and my family have had zero regrets!

5 nicklabbe1

I used Dave when i first bought my house and when i sold it 5 years later. He grew up in the area and has lived here his whole life. He is very knowledgeable of the local real estate market and has great relationships with all industry players (banks, inspectors, appraisers, brokers, contractors, etc). I found him to be very patient, honest, and always reachable. We had a great experience working with Dave and I highly recommend using his services.

5 got2bkevin

Dave was a professional during the entire process. He was able to answer my questions and responded very quickly to any concerns I had over the sale of my home. His photography made my place look amazing and that was what drove potential buyers to look further and make an appointment for a showing. I had a full price offer in 4 days!

5 jane 99

Dave was very professional and responsive to my many questions involving the sale of my home. He was knowledgeable about the local housing market, which resulted in my home selling quickly and at a good price. It was a pleasure to work with Dave and I would recommend him to friends.

5 harshawkm

Dave Stead is an incredible resource as you make your way through the home buying process! My husband and I recently purchased our second home with Dave, and we would work with Dave again in a heartbeat should the need arise. Dave is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help with anything you need during the process including negotiating, showings, and offering his skills and expertise!

5 zuser20140928053032605

Dave Stead helped tremendously in the sale of my new home. Being my first experience in the home buying process, Dave selflessly made himself available for the many questions and concerns I had throughout the entire process. Dave not only displayed professionalism and expertise, but he also ensured excellent communication between the seller and myself in the difficult underwriting process, as well as provided many contacts for lending, inspecting, and legal purposes. Dave Stead has an outstanding reputation in the Greater Worcester area, and will undoubtedly give to others the same superior buying experience to every type of buyer.

5 user6356392

When we decided to sell our house we interviewed more than a handful of real estate agents and Dave Stead stood out from the beginning. The selling process has it’s fair share of emotional ups and downs for the seller and Dave remained steady throughout the process. Our house had some unique selling challenges and Dave immediately recognized them and devised a strategic plan to help ensure a sale. There was no shortage of showings and interest in our home, thanks very much to the time and money Dave spends on advertising. However, we think his value really shined through during the closing process. During the closing phase, we ran into a few issues and once again Dave guided us. He always understood the issue, recognized the path towards a resolution, communicated well, listened to our opinions, answered all of our questions, and guided us through the process to a successful closing. Dave Stead is a consummate professional and we highly recommend him. Thank You Dave!

5 ajshurer

We worked with Dave for the purchase of our second home. He was very responsive (and patient!), and knowledgable of the area. We are very happy in our new home and would recommend Dave to anyone looking for an agent.

5 kdmc1013

Dave was recommended to me by my attorney and several people in the real estate world. I was very impressed with his professionalism, work ethic and knowledge of the market. The property sold in a reasonable amount of time after a good amount of showings,due to Dave’s marketing strategies. I would highly recommend him to anyone with any type real estate need.

5 cwnelson84

Dave was a pleasure to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable and guided us successfully through the sale of our first home which can be overwhelming at first. He was able to negotiate the price we were looking for and the home sold in less than a month! Dave is super responsive and is easy to get a hold off at all times. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dave to a family member or friend, and will be looking for him on our next home transaction. Hire Dave, you won’t regret it!

5 c moylan

Dave did an amazing job selling our house. He was on top of the transaction all the time, very responsive and went above and beyond during the whole process. We were thrown a few curve balls during the sale and Dave handled them all with great professionalism. I would highly recomend Dave to anyone buying or selling a home.

5 robertj mulrooney

Quick, easy sale. Hassle free. We had to do very little to sell our condo. Just about everything was done for us. I think it sold in 10 days. David recommended a fantastic attorney who was also very easy to work with.

5 jfwysocki

The only reason we sold our home was because of David Stead. He was always positive throughout the process and made everything about selling our property easy. We are so fortunate to have chosen David as our partner in this transaction and will certainly request his help in the future. Thank you David.

5 user7937505

I’ve bought and sold a good number of houses during my 72-year life span, with moves between and within states and being a landlord for a total of nearly 29 years. Dave is hands down, the best realtor I have ever worked with. He is very professional, yet personable and friendly. He is easy and a joy to work with, very responsive, proactive and effective. He really knows how to list and show a property to its best advantage. I priced my Worcester 3-family at the top of the price range for similar properties when it was listed and had a near-full-price offer within a week of listing which resulted in a sale. I’ve never sold a property that quickly before. If you want results and a pleasant experience; go with Dave Stead. You will not regret it.

5 FXBCK42

David, Was very intuitive as to our desire’s and needs to move quickly on this sale. His use of social media impressed both my wife and i. We had friends call us with hours of the first day the listing was up, that had seen it on various media bases. The results speak for themselves. Our thanks goes out to him for the work done, in such a professional manner.

5 polliwoggs

Dave was easy to work with right from the beginning. We knew very little about selling realestate so it was reassuring to have Dave at our side throughout the process. We had buyers make offers and back out for one reason or another. Through it all Dave gave sound advice on what we could do to make our house more saleable. Even on the day of closing the buyer wanted something we did not feel we could accomplish. Dave stepped in and paid to have it taken care of. You can’t ask anymore than that. Thanks for all you help Dave.

5 efloyd94

I have known David personally and professionally for over 15 years. Through my years of knowing him, he has always been knowledgeable, attentive to detail and professional. Recently, he has assisted me in buying a home and would I highly recommend his real estate services.

5 sarah runge

Dave is AMAZING! We interviewed 4 agents to list our house, and decided to go with Dave (which turned out to be an amazing decision!). We had to sell quick due to a new job offer in CA. We gave Dave enormous challenges that he absolutely met. We listed our house 2 months before we had to be out, giving Dave only 2 weeks to get a buyer in so we could close in time. And all of this in November, just before the Worcester winter when the real estate market hibernates. But Dave delivered! We had mentally planned for the worst (I would have to move to CA so I could honor my January start date while my husband stayed in MA in the house waiting for a buyer) – thankfully we never had to put that plan into action! Dave met with us before we listed the house, took beautiful pictures of every room, and generated a buzz online with a pre-listing. By the time the house actually went on the market we had several showings lined up! Dave was always professional, punctual, and smiling. He was a pleasure to deal with and made the entire selling process easy to understand. As this was our first time selling a house, we were very appreciative of him walking through each step. He was always available whenever we needed him (even if it was 10 at night!) and got back to us promptly about everything. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough, and anyone who chooses him as their agent is in good hands. Thanks for everything, Dave!

5 chefjay31

Dave worked endlessly to sell my property. The property was unique in design but he was able to present it in such a way that is sold relatively fast. He also maximized the sale price and was professional with all parties involved. If you are looking to sell or buy a house I would highly recommend him.

5 user3271497

I cannot say enough good things about Dave Stead. He found the perfect house for us right away. He was very helpful and prompt whenever we needed to get in touch with him. If you want the most knowledgeable real estate agent around, he is one to go to!

5 rocamora1976

Professionalism is the true descriptive term for Dave Stead. Every inquiry and issue was dealt with promptly, courteously, and most importantly, accurately. Anyone considering a realtor, will absolutely be provided with the best available service from Dave Stead.

5 user6409945

My wife and I worked with Dave for the purchase of our first home and I could not be happier with our experience. Dave was very responsive and attentive to all of our needs, very often going above and beyond the expectations of myself and my wife. I would highly recommend Dave to all!!!

David Stead has detailed and current knowledge of the real estate market, property values, and legal and environmental factors affecting housing. He is timely in responding to any requests for information and in setting and keeping appointments, and makes himself available at the convenience of the client. He takes the time to explain particular features or potential problems in the properties involved. David is always courteous and professional in his demeanor and approach.

The best in the business in and around Central Massachusetts! Myself and my fiance were first time home buyers and Dave was so cool and calm during the process it put us at ease. We just closed on our home. He sold my grandparents a house in worcester over 22 years ago and is still doing the same great work.

We started our search for a realtor in the summer of 2015. We had a home that was being rented at the time, and we wanted to start the process of selling the house. We found David Stead and another realtor through Zillow and met with both of them. It didn’t take more than the first meeting for us to know that David was the right realtor for us. He was professional, personable and informative. Although we decided to wait another six months to actually list our house, David was available to meet with us as soon as our tenant moved out. He walked through and gave us great advice and tips on making the house more marketable, without spending unnecessary money. We listed the house in the middle of Winter in New England, and we had an offer within the first couple weeks, and closed on the sale within 8 weeks of listing. Since the house was vacant, and we live out of state, we were initially concerned about selling the house long distance. David went above and beyond to do anything that was needed in our absence, including meeting with contractors to get work estimates, handling any repairs that needed to be made, checking on the house, and the list goes on. He was always available to answer questions and to keep us updated on the selling process. We highly recommend David Stead and are so happy that we chose him as our realtor!

Dave Stead was extremely helpful and easy to work with during two recent home sales. His advice was honest ,articulate and spot on. We had a positive experience with the advice and support from Dave Stead. I would highly recommend Dave as he is a top notch professional.

when I was going to sell my house in Massachusetts, while I am living in California, I needed and an experienced realtor to be able to take care of it very fast, for a good offer, without effecting my busy work schedule and in the middle of Winter, which was not a greatest time to sell a house, and David did it all! he is extremely reliable, very knowledgeable in his field and very professional agent that I had a pleasure to work with to sell my house and completed all the transactions in less than 2 months! I was so pleased with his job and I highly recommend him. Thank you again David.

5 judyengelberg

Unbelievably positive, wonderful experience. We had one day to be in town to find a place to purchase. We didn’t know any realtors in Worcester and found him through one of his listings. We gave Dave info on what we wanted to look at in terms of needs, price range, etc. He lined up about 10 different properties on that one Saturday and really listened to our needs. He gave us a great overview and in essence a tour of Worcester as proximity to the Medical Center for work was vital. We found a property that we loved that day, he helped us negotiate the price and he was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and thorough throughout the entire transaction. Franky, he was a miracle worker and we never would have been able to accomplish this in the short amount of time that we had were it not for his incredible ability, astute and complete knowledge of the area and complete professionalism. We are so lucky to have found Dave and truly and wholeheartedly recommend him!

5 eichfeld

Dave was the listing agent for the recent sale of my rental property in Worcester. From the first phone call to closing, Dave was competent and a pleasure to work with. His strongest points were: 1) Communication – Dave was very responsive, including one late night phone call to work around my schedule; 2) Process – Dave knows what needs to be done and drove the entire process with minimal input from me; 3) Listing – Dave painted an accurate and compelling picture in his listing via good photos and accurate content. I highly recommend Dave for your listing agent needs.

5 hottlilgreekie

Dave Stead provided impeccable service in all aspects of the selling of my home. He was consistently on top of every detail from promptness with meeting times, the photography of my home for the best visual listing, the target pricing and most of all the negotiation process. I truly felt like I could trust his expertise to sell my home from the day of meeting to the closing date. I would recommend his incredible skills in the area of real estate to anyone who is in search of a great seller/buyer’s realtor. I will be sure to use his services again in the future.

5 shrng

I have worked with David on several purchases and sales over the past 15 years. I am grateful for his knowledge and attentiveness during each process.

5 christigriffin5

Working with Dave made my selling and closing process a breeze. He was always 1 step ahead of me to take care of details. He also has amazing insight based on his decades of experience to present and price my home in a way to maximize the traffic and ultimately get a quick sale. It only took a little over a week to sell. He is also highly professional and handles negotiations in such a way to be sure to keep a deal together. It is easy for some to become so zealous to ultimately alienate the other side and thus lose a sale, but Dave understands the importance of being respectful to all within a transaction while still being an advocate for me. He can be the calm in the storm and that is so needed sometimes. He also was diligent to be sure he set forth all offers to be sure I understood the nuances that impacted my bottom line. I highly recommend Dave to anyone looking to buy or sell. I promise you will not be disappointed.

5 cldoherty2

Dave is professional, highly motivated, and a pleasure to work with. Because of his industry experience, he was able to put us in touch with the referrals we needed for last minute projects during the sale. He understands the industry, has access to an extensive network, and always made himself available. I highly recommend Dave.

5 jlmika88

My husband and I were first time home buyers (and now first time home owners). We had worked with another realtor for seven months who had not found us anything because he said “that’s just how the Worcester market was now”. Contrary to that experience, Dave found us a house on our very first day working with him. Dave was helpful, knowledgeable, and quick to respond to all of our questions throughout the whole process, even when we called and emailed him multiple times a day. He also tirelessly worked with the unresponsive attorney for our mortgage company to make sure we could sign all of our paperwork on time. We also lived an hour and a half away and both work full time, and he helped us through the entire process using e-documents and e-signatures to reduce the number of times we had to travel to the area. He even attended our closing and got us our keys right away so that we were able to start moving the next day. We felt like he really cared if we got a reasonable price and closed on our house in a timely fashion. I highly recommend Dave because in addition to being so knowledgeable about home buying and the Worcester area he was also really friendly and personable which made the whole process feel so much less stressful than it could have.

5 dianevandal

I have selected Dave to sell a couple of properties which I inherited. He was extremely knowledgeable about prices and the market trend. This allowed our properties to sell for asking with no appraisal issues. He was always prompt to respond to any questions I had. Dave is a realtor who goes above and beyond what he needs to do.

5 Claire F H

This review is long overdue. Dave helped me to buy a three family property in Worcester this past March, and I found him to be hardworking, knowledgeable, & responsive. He has excellent negotiating skills as well– an ideal combination of traits in a realtor. He showed me many homes and was extremely patient throughout the process– he never pressured me to make a decision or rush into a purchase. Dave went above and beyond by scheduling contractors to obtain quotes for needed repairs to the property during the negotiation process, and he was able to secure a great deal for me! This also helped me to feel comfortable that the repairs were manageable and the investment was a wise one. In addition, he worked with me to provided the names and contact information of other professionals who could be of help as we sought to improve and rent the property. I highly recommend him.

5 TASkehan6

David was our third realtor in 2 1/2 years of listing this property. We believe his great marketing skills led to an accepted offer three weeks from his initial listing of the property. There were, also, an impressive number of showings in that same three week period. We were very satisfied with the services David Stead provided.

5 zuser20150906160710295

Dave was fantastic to work with. He was helpful and communicated throughout the entire process of selling our home. I highly recommend him whether you are buying/selling. His knowledge and expertise made for an easier process overall.

5 zuser20160709084924576

Dave was a huge asset to us in selling our condo. He was extremely responsive and worked very hard during the entire process. He was incredibly accommodating and worked late hours on many days for our benefit. I highly recommend listing your property with Dave.

5 mikerevelli9

I’ve known and worked with Dave for 20+ years. I wouldn’t sell or buy without him. He’s like an old soul. Full of knowledge, expertise, and calm negotiating skills. In an often questionable industry, this man is the consummate professional.

5 user3739787

Dave was excellent with my home buying needs. Always friendly when showing me places, and always responsive to my emails and calls. He was professional when problems surfaced and worked to correct them. 10/10 I recommend and would use again.

5 Toddparmenter3

Dave was very knowledgeable in everything we asked and informative about things we should ask. My wife and I are extremely happy with him through out the entire process of buying our house.

5 parmentermaria

Dave was very helpful in the prosses of finding us the house we bought. We looked at a number of property’s we thought we would like, but at the end of it all Dave had one more to show us. That was the one. He really understood what we where looking for. We can’t thank him enough!!

5 jordanbeane2

Dave is the best agent I have had the pleasure with working with – and I was once an agent myself. Relocating here from out of state, we knew nothing about the area and he spent an entire weekend showing us around the city (he knows everything about Worcester and the surrounding areas). He is so personable and professional. We truly feel he had our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. Our transaction was the smoothest of any I have experienced. We highly recommend Dave, he is truly the best and made this process enjoyable!

5 timmyp1223

Dave was awesome. He was quick and on top of everything. He made sure everything went smoothly and I’m glad I worked with him. I highly recommend him. He’s great to work with. He’s very knowledgeable and very good at what he does

5 brittany beals

Dave was awesome!! He was there for all of our questions and there for us whenever we needed him. Always answered our calls! He was right on top of everything and made sure everything was done on time.

5 joecleary6

Dave did an outstanding job. Very responsive and had a very good knowledge of the real estate market!! The listing went up right away and we had several interested buyers almost immediately. The house needed to have updated smoke alarms etc. which Dave took care of. That was very helpful. A real pleasure to work with.

5 sunnyk700

Dave was very professional and and friendly. He gets to the point. Dave helped us to get the deal for the house with multiple offers and helped us all the way to the closing.

5 nicoladeary

Dave is a real pro to work with. He knows his stuff. He is reliable, dependable, and very enjoyable to work with. As a first time home buyer, he was able to share lots of insight with me. I would definitely recommend Dave and his services.

5 zk753

Dave Stead was a great person to work with! All real estate deals have lots of moving parts, and he kept them all going smoothly…and made adjustments on the fly as needed. Not only did he help us sell our house in one day, but he also provided us with reliable tradesmen to do the punch list for closing. I would highly recommend working with Dave Stead to all people considering him!!

5 martin curbelo

I worked with David Stead to purchase my house in Worcester. Working with Dave was very pleasant and always available to answer any questions. He works with with a few lenders and attorney that I do recommend them as well. Also make sure that you spend the money and hire a good home inspector. If? I’m on the market for a new property I’ll make sure to reach out to Dave.

5 brandonbauer89

Dave has been wonderful to work with, he was quick to respond to any questions and requests we had, and he got us top dollar for our place. We were lucky to have him as a realtor and highly recommend to anyone who’s looking to buy or sell!!

5 strany1325

Dave was a pleasure to work with. We felt he definitely went the extra mile to get things done and make the process as easy as possible. Would recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor.

5 billwill204

David worked hard to make our house look it’s best and to get it out there and in front of the right type of buyers for a house that is historic and in need of work. His skills are top notch. He kept us up on all the information as soon as he got it and sold out house quickly for a good price. I highly recommend using David. We only were able to talk via email and phone, but managed to get every thing done seamlessly. Thank you David for your hard work.

5 user6935015

Dave was a professional from beginning to end. He was responsive, very knowledgeable about the housing market and went above and beyond to sell our house. He met every contingency and know what it takes to close a deal.

5 hottlilgreekie

Dave Stead is simply the best. He is kind and patient. Dave listened and executed the search of my ideal condo superfluously. I couldn’t be happier with his promptness and attention to detail throughout the buying process!

5 user56658420

Dave explained the whole process and the current market. He helped us price our house for a quick sale at full asking price. Dave handled the details so we didn’t have to worry about it. He was able to recommend a lawyer, a mover, someone to install a radon mitigation system, and other people that made the whole move much easier. He is easy to work with and available when you need to talk about issues. I recommend Dave to someone looking for a real estate agent.

5 brettmaclennan

David was the best. We used him as our seller agent and he was highly responsive to our texts, calls, and emails. David knew the Worcester area well, priced our house right, and helped us get a quick sale. It always felt like David had our best interest in mind, and gave us sound advice throughout. The only down side is David does not work in North Carolina where we moved to as we would of loved to have him help buy a house in North Carolina.

5 mariespats

Dave is amazing. He worked with me buying and selling a home at the same time. He is knowledgeable and responsive. He has seemingly endless resources and ideas. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in central Massachusetts I highly recommend Dave Stead.

5 ferg1999

I appreciated working with Dave because he was direct, brought a high degree of professionalism, was knowledgeable of the area and set honest and realistic working expectations. Even discussing the “hard talking points” Dave’s responses were forthright and honest. The sale of my home was very easy, so I can’t talk to any major hurdles. But, any question I had, Dave was responsive and helpful. Part of the reason I chose Dave was that he moves a lot of property. Not once did I feel like I was being pushed to the side for another client. – Thanks Dave

5 jbmcro

I contacted Dave Stead along with several other real estate persons to get an idea on the sale of the home where my mother had resided and had passed away. Dave was very professional, knowledgeable along with a good personality and provided a vast array of ideas and suggestions to sell the home. He was available anytime that we needed questions answered both prior to signing with him and after we chose Dave to sell the home. I would highly recommend Dave Stead as a person to hire and sell your home.

5 greenlawjohn

Dave was extremely knowledgeable of the neighborhood. He also had many contacts in the industry giving him a wide network and gave my house a better chance to get an offer. If a minor issue arose he was able to handle it quickly. He was always professional and gave me his honest opinion of offers to help move the process along in my best interest. I highly recommend hiring him as an agent. Thank you Dave.

5 EdAnimate

If you are looking for a real estate pro in the Worcester area, Dave Stead is the man! We are from New Jersey and knew close to nothing about the area, but I needed to relocate to Worcester. At first, I tried bidding on homes and dealing directly with listing agents by myself, which proved to be a complete nightmare. After doing extensive research on possible buyer’s agents, I decided on Dave based purely on his reviews. Being so highly rated, I was surprised that I was able to speak on the phone with Dave with my first call and his responsiveness has been exemplary throughout the whole buying process. Dave’s extensive knowledge of the area and his expertise with the market were a priceless asset. I knew we had the right guy when people kept saying “hi” to him on the street while he showed us properties, including the chief fire inspector (this guy knows everybody)! Dave was pleasant and professional and truly went above and beyond as a real estate agent and overall facilitator of the buying process. I also believe that it was Dave’s personal connection and rapport with the listing agent that got us into a good position to win out a 12 offer bidding war on the house we wanted without going reasonably beyond the asking price. Lastly, every one of Dave’s recommendations for help with home inspection, insurance, legal help, etc. was top notch. I have nothing but praise for Dave and when it comes time to sell my home later on, I know that Dave Stead will be the agent for me!

5 mathdoyle1

Dave is straightforward. He knew exactly what to price my father’s house at. It sold after one weekend and had multiple offers. His pictures and written descriptions were excellent.

5 bandb210

We relied on the Zillow reviews when choosing Dave as our realtor to list and sell our home in the Tatnuck section of Worcester. Trust everything you read about Dave, he truly is the best! From our first meeting to the day of closing, we felt like we were working with a friend even though we had never previously met. Dave is a true professional and is extremely knowledgeable about the Worcester area and the business of real estate. He is always available and amazingly responsive (even when he’s on vacation…..sorry Dave ?). We could go on and on with nothing but positive comments and praise for Dave. Look no further when searching for a realtor, you will not find better.

5 Connorst93

Dave is straightforward, genuine and highly knowledgeable. He has helped us buy and sell three homes over the past 10 years. Dave takes the time to ensure that your getting the best deal for your money and that you’ll be happy with your new home. I recommend him to all my family and friends.

5 albchik143

Dave Stead helped my husband and I buy the house of our dream, I can’t say enough great things about him. He has been super helpful throughout the whole process by taking the time to explain everything in details and always had the best intentions for us. He was very knowledgeable and easy to work with and always available when we needed him. We would definitely recommend Dave in a heartbeat!!!!! O.C.

5 gforcejim

I have bought and sold several houses in my time. Dave has worked with me now for many years. His calming demeanor has kept many deals together when they could have easily fell apart. He is an elite professional with the experience, network, and know how to get it done!

5 donna arsenault1

David Stead was very professional, courteous, always quick to respond to calls, maintained communication throughout without adding any unnecessary feedback which made a stress free transaction. David was a fantastic negotiator and sales person! This was our first time meeting him and first experience working with him and I only wish I’d of known of him and his level of expertise in the real estate business years prior. I had found him on google search and had read great reviews and an immense amount of skill/experience in which he held, which is what had convinced us to hire him. Selling and buying are one of the biggest financial decisions people make in life, and David’s level of respect, understanding and drive to aid us through that process was incredibly positive! I would highly recommend him and can certainly state he is the best in the business!!!

5 joenangela

If you are looking for a realtor ask yourself these questions: will they return your calls when you need them? Do they answer all your questions, including the ones you didn’t know to ask? Will they help you stay calm when the process gets stressful? When the sale is on the line will they personally get involved and make sure everything goes smooth? Well Dave Stead did all this for us and more! His expertise in helping us get the house on the market and getting us viewings was phenomenal. He really knows how to make your house look great in the listings. He added value right up to the closing and his advise saved us thousands. Now we know why there is no better realtor in Central MA

4 bmorrow337

Dave is very personable, knowledgeable and accessible. Every time I contacted him, he either responded immediately, or within a very short time. He was very good about keeping me informed on the happenings at the house while it was on the market. There were some occasions after it had an offer & after we had a lawyer working with us that I was a bit confused about who should be contacting me, and where I felt that I was not being “kept up to date”, and that was a bit concerning. However, for the main part, my working relationship with David Stead was very good.

4 joanbombard

This sale was made much easier with Dave’s on-going attention and involvement with myself and the buyer. Dave is very honest, professional and a pleasure to work with.
