Professional, knowledgeable and very patient. Dave was able to help find the perfect property for us. Best buying experience ever!
When we decided to purchase a property in Whistler, I contacted many agents in the area. Dave was the first to respond and was consistently very proactive, informative and supportive through the whole process. We found Dave to be highly professional and ethical. We recommend Dave to anyone who is considering purchasing a home!

Dave produced a miracle, found a buyer in (truly) less than 24 hour from the moment my Westin Whistler unit was listed, and then guided me in a most competent and friendly way through the steps that I had to take - I was traveling in California and the Philippines and the entire process was a breeze, largely also thanks to one of the 3 lawyers that Dave had recommended.
Thank you Dave - much appreciated. Highly recommended!
Dave has led us through 3 different transactions, never loosing patience and never taking his eye off the goal. Dave’s creativity got the first one over the finish line, his tenacity and optimism prevailed on the second, and his ability to calm the waters resulted in the third’s completion. Through all the transactions, Dave provided a steady hand and professional guidance in getting our deals completed.

Dave Brown was recommended to us by a neighbour in Whistler, who was impressed by his level of professionalism and dedication during her sale; and we weren't disappointed. What stood out for us, was that Dave is a great communicator. He kept us informed about the sale process at every stage so that we felt comfortable in what can be a stressful process. Dave was able to tune into our specific needs and follow through on our instructions, always in a timely manner. We would highly recommend Dave for sale or purchase of real estate in BC.

Dave Brown was GREAT to work with. My wife and I bought a vacation condo in Whistler. We had talked to other agents before meeting Dave and none were as consistent with follow-up, none were as willing to work and research, and none were as easy to deal with. Dave is very knowledgeable about the area and helped us navigate the ins and outs of buying in Whistler. He gave us honest advice and we felt he was looking out for our best interests. We were not a big sale for Dave and it didn't matter, he still gave us first class service!
We highly recommend Dave!

I wanted the Best Real Estate Agent! This was going to be my first home purchase! Biggest purchase of my life! One name came up consistently, Dave Brown.
I could not have done better. Dave was completely on my side, looking after my best interest. He got to know me and understood what I was looking for in a home. Dave’s knowledge of the business is a step above the rest! His service is the best of the best!
He always got back to me right away! He ask’s the right questions! His honesty and work ethic is unprecedented!
If you want the best and nicest real estate agent in the world! The guy I am happy to now call my friend! Call Dave Brown. He’s on your side!

We have known Dave for many years in Whistler as a coach to our son and as a friend. We have often had the opportunity to see how hard he works for his clients so we asked him to look out for a commercial investment opportunity for us. He found the exact right property and was so helpful to work with. He gave us sound advice and navigated us through the transaction. He never missed a deadline and was diligent in keeping us on track. We were absolute novices! There is no way we could have done it without him and he exceeded our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone doing real estate business in Whistler.

We were introduced to Dave Brown by a management company due to our lack of familiarity with the local market. Dave is very knowledgeable and provided us with a very carefully prepared market analysis to help us to understand the rationale behind the recommended listing price that exceeded our expectations. When buyers surfaced, Dave was very adept at helping us to pick the right buyer and the sale closed very smoothly. I would not hesitate to refer any potential buyer or seller to work with Dave Brown.
My wife, Linda, and I have just sold our unit in the Woodrun Condominiums in Whistler, British Columbia. Our realtor, Dave Brown of the Whistler Real Estate, provided invaluable assistance in the successful completion of the sale. He provided excellent cost comparisons with other similar units, was able to market it extremely well to a broad range of potential buyers, offered sound professional advice about the real estate transactions in Canada, and was able to guide us through the successful closing and sale of our unit. We could not have done it without his help and we would recommend him highly for any potential real estate transactions you might need. Since were not Canadian citizens, Dave was an essential part of the entire process.

Dave Brown was recommended to us by a previous client who thought Dave was the best realtor he had ever dealt with. The result was a trouble free purchase and another happy client. Dave was readily available for showings, definitely knew the market, and gave us good advice through the whole process.

There are so many good testimonials written here its hard to say anything more other then I would have to agree with all of them – they sound exactly like Dave! We started using the service of several agents and ultimately went exclusively with Dave. Dave stuck with us for a couple years (we live overseas) and where others floundered Dave persisted and was always supportive. Dave is ridiculously friendly, easy going, Incredibly patient and very responsive (One has to be to deal with the type of buyer we are). Generous with his time, sharing in his knowledge, sincere in his engagement with us, we never felt like he was over selling for his own interests. He is someone whose objective is to get us the home we want, and will be happy with. Thus he listens well, understands our goals and works towards them. Dave made buying in Whistler an easy and truly enjoyable experience.
Joe Bauer, Hong Kong
Dave was a strong recommendation from friends of ours who purchased a condo in Whistler 3 or 4 years ago. Our experience could not have been better. Buying in Whistler has been a dream for a long time and being new to buying real estate in Canada, Dave's experience and patience was invaluable. Dave’s knowledge of the local market trends along with his customer first approach made the buying process easy and enjoyable. He was incredibly helpful and responsive every step of the way. Would definitely recommend Dave to anyone looking to buy or sell in Whistler.
Scott and Laura Greenberg,
I am very satisfied with my real estate purchase experience with Dave as my realtor. I am from out of province and Dave made the process easy. I was able to meet with Dave numerous times over a couple of days and he was flexible with his time and schedule enough for me to fit in some recreational activities. His experience and knowledge of the local market and trends was invaluable. Thanks Dave, I'm looking forward to working together again!

I moved to Whistler for work, and like everyone here, I immediately fell in love with Whistler. I was very lucky that Dave was recommended to me by my colleague. In the most difficult and very hot market Dave was on top of my search all the time. Dave responded to every email, every text message, and every question I had, and often within minutes. Dave is the most patient and most diligent realtor I have ever worked with. I always got an honest and a wise advice from Dave no matter how often I was changing my mind, panicking, or loosing my patience with the market, he always remained calm, understanding, and focused, and the best part is, he helped me find a perfect place, exactly what I needed. I am the most grateful that Dave remained persistent and determined the entire time while working with me, and I would highly recommend him as a Realtor.

We came to Dave with very challenging parameters and he delivered 100%. We’ve skied at Whistler for years and when we started looking for our own property, we knew exactly what we wanted. Like everyone, we probably wanted more than we could afford, and we had very specific location desires. And in a hot market there is a tendency to panic and take something that isn’t quite right just to avoid missing out. At the same time, when you find the one you want, you have to act very quickly. Dave guided us through this very challenging search with patience, professionalism and diligence. When the perfect place finally came on the market, Dave had us in a deal within 72 hours. And his after sales care has been excellent - he continues to follow up to ensure that all details are accounted for. Thanks to Dave Brown, we are the proud owners of a perfect family vacation home.

"Having Dave Brown as our realtor made the purchase of our property in Whistler seamless and comfortable! Dave was very thorough in his communications and was quick to respond to any queries we had. Dave was also able to field any issues or concerns that came up and troubleshoot accordingly. We had communications with other realtors prior to meeting Dave and could not be happier with our choice and the service we received from him! We look forward to our relationship with Dave as our realtor and new friend to continue and develop for years to come!"

“I have lived in Whistler for 25 years and consider myself knowledgeable when it comes to who’s who in our small but dynamic real estate world. I have dealt with several real estate agents in my time here. Most were good; however Dave Brown was excellent and stood out as the best to date. His willingness to listen and prioritize his client’s needs over anything else seems like a simple thing, but I have found in the past that simple things are often not simple to follow through on. Dave follows through and follows up on everything. His effort and attention to detail makes you think he is completing his first sale ever, while his results clearly illustrate that you are dealing with a seasoned professional whose knowledge of the Whistler market is second to none. Above all he works for his clients first and foremost. While he and his firm benefit from his hard work the client is always head and shoulder above everything else on his priority list.”
David Krasny, Whistler, BC
"Workng with Dave Brown is a pleasure and a guarantee of full committment, problem solving and a gentle human touch. I wanted to invest in the Whistler Real Estate and he helped in all the phases from property choice,to finding an accountant and the right bank to finalize the business. I would commend him to anyone who is not familiar, as I was, with investing in British Columbia: he will be there to make things easier!"

"We are not local to Whistler and we were referred to Dave Brown through a real estate contact. We originally connected with Dave via phone and email. Dave made a great effort to get to know exactly what our needs were, and what we were looking for in a Whistler property. He then sent us materials from his research that were very relevant and helpful. When we arrived in Whistler for only a short period of time, Dave had lined up all the properties that we had identified for viewing, and some additional that were very helpful for comparison. With Dave's personable, supportive and relaxed style, we were confident that Dave had only our best interests in mind.
Dave is very knowledgable about Whistler real estate — the market and specific locations; and he has built up extensive and excellent contacts in the Whistler area. Dave was able to direct us further to any number of his multiple contacts that we could approach to address our additional property related queries. Where Dave's strength really lies, is in his attentiveness to service. Prior to placing an Offer, after acceptance and even after closing, Dave has been available to us with very prompt responses to any of our questions or concerns. Dave Brown was incredibly helpful to us on our purchase, and we’ve been grateful for his assistance throughout."

"We are very happy to have found a property in Whistler that matched our budget and need. Dave has been very instrumental and patient in assisting us to achieve this goal. His knowledge and expertise in Whistler real estate has enabled us to understand the different purchase options and ultimately, helped us to identify what property really fits our needs. More importantly, he is good in the negotiation table and made it a pleasant process. In addition, he has walked an extra mile in doing a lot of after sale service which we appreciate so much.
In our encounter with him, we found him trustworthy and keep our best interest at heart. I would recommend him without any hesitation."
— Kari and Gideon Leoganda, Richmond, BC
"I have watched Dave's sales in Whistler over the past two years. He seemed to be selling quite a few homes. I knew when the time came to put my home on the market he was the guy to call. He sold my home in three days!
He was very kind and considerate. Dave followed through with everything he said he would do. I recommend Dave as one of the best agents in Whistler."
— Bonnie Swanson, Whistler, BC
“We are a Canadian couple living in Seattle who fell in love with Whistler and decided to purchase a property there. We first contacted Dave to see if he could help with our search and after listening to us and learning about our needs, he drove us around Whistler and gave us an excellent orientation to the different neighbourhoods and condo complexes in town. As newcomers to Whistler, we really appreciated the tour and learning about the different possibilities. In our subsequent meetings, Dave arranged for us to visit many properties, and was instrumental in helping us to find the property that best suited our needs.
We found Dave to be always professional, with the highest degree of integrity, and very knowledgeable about Whistler's complex real estate market. In our decision process, we felt that Dave always represented our best interest, and provided us with objective and insightful advice. We had countless questions when it was time to finalize the purchase and Dave would respond to them promptly, fully and patiently, always exceeding our expectations. He has continued to help us with post-purchase items such as finding good renovation contractors, property managers, better insurance brokers in town, etc. Dave helped us realize our ‘dream’ of owning a home in Whistler. We would be confident in recommending him to family, friends and whoever is interested in learning about the Whistler area real estate market and in purchasing a property.”

“I reached out to Dave out of the blue. He immediately responded to my enquiry and treated me like I had been his client for years! He continued to work with me over the next couple of years to secure a property that met my needs. I found Dave to be very knowledgeable about the Whistler market and very patient as we discussed potential opportunities. When the time came to make an offer he provided sound advice and helped me close the deal. Post-closing, he continued to be involved and still provides me with market information when requested. Thanks Dave!”
— Rob Bruno, Burnaby, BC
"Dave was the listing agent for our property in Whistler.

I highly recommend Dave and would welcome the chance to work with him again."
— Tom Keller, Boulder, CO

“I met Dave Brown last year when we were on our annual spring ski trip. Two months later when we decided to move to Whistler, I informed Dave and he went straight to work on our agenda. Dave is a tireless worker, dedicated to fulfilling his clients’ dreams and goals. He listens, he cares, and he has our complete trust. Dave has also been an invaluable resource in helping us to get settled here in Whistler.”
— Robert Dingle, Whistler
“My experience working with Dave was fantastic. He was readily available and quick to respond to all my questions and requests. I recently purchased a studio suite in Creekside and Dave was wonderfully helpful throughout the entire process. He is thorough, knowledgable and very professional. Dave is an excellent realtor and I highly recommend his services!”
— Tracy Dixon, Furry Creek, BC
“Dave has a detailed knowledge of the Whistler real estate market, is easy to work with, and is conscientious and hardworking. I would have no hesitation in recommending him if you need a good Whistler realtor.”
— Phil and Sonia Mahoney, Whistler, BC
“I think what I appreciated most about Dave Brown was that he wasn’t trying to sell me anything — he was genuinely interested in finding me the home I needed. And because of that, Dave is someone I trust and I’m now happy to say that he has become a friend . . .
Being so busy, I didn’t have time to waste running around looking at real estate, nor did I want a dozen brokers sending me hot sheets, that frankly I had no time to vet. What I needed was one broker who would take the time needed to understand exactly what I wanted and go find it. Dave did just that. He worked diligently until my wish list was met, and then one day I got the call. My family hasn’t been happier since."
— Paul and Vikki Bosa, Vancouver, BC
“We have been working with Dave for four years now and have recently closed on our second Whistler property. He has always provided exceptional service. We have seen countless properties with Dave and written many offers. He has always made it very easy for us to schedule viewings, accommodating our last minute requests. Dave follows up with answers to our questions promptly and we know if he says he will do something, we can count on him. What sets Dave apart from the others however, is his honesty and integrity. Dave truly has his clients' best interests at heart and we highly recommend him."
— Sally Whitehead, Vancouver, BC
“Solid business fundamentals drive my decision-making process for any investment including real estate, so the key for me is working with a realtor who shares my zeal for identifying fundamentally sound business opportunities. Prior to making my first real estate investment in Whistler, I researched and evaluated more than 25 of the top Whistler realtors. Everyone was eager to sell me what I like to call ‘The Whistler Dream,’ but Dave Brown, whom I had met in his capacity as a coach with the Whistler minor hockey & football programs, had a different approach. Dave effectively prescreened all unique real estate opportunities that met my investment criteria prior to providing me with business case studies for each. In Dave Brown I discovered a realtor who understands me and has a firm grasp of the fundamentals that drive the Whistler real estate market. Several profitable real estate transactions later, I can say from experience that when Dave Brown says he’s got a deal, it’s worth taking a closer look. When buying or selling in Whistler, stick to fundamentals and call Dave Brown.”

“We have just sold our condo in the Glacier Lodge and Suites and we could not be happier with our sales agent, Dave Brown. We found him to be very honest and hard working. We had our condo listed with the Whistler Real Estate Company for quite a while and he never gave up on trying to get the sale, which finally happened. We would not hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone looking for a real estate agent.”
