If you're looking for a house in the East Bay I can highly recommend David Kafton, a licensed real estate broker. He received his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, has been a resident of Berkeley since the '60s, and so he knows the area like the back of his hand. He used to be with Mason-McDuffie and has been running his own practice for the past 20 years. He helped me buy my first house in 1994 and our second home in 2000. We weren't the highest bidders, but his presentation got it for us. Not only does David have over 30 years of experience as a realtor, he has an incredible amount of integrity and a heart of gold. We've remained friends to this day and if I need a referral for anything from a chimney sweep to a vet to the best eclair in town, he's the first person I call.
Remember, please, that you saved my life in 2012. I am forever thankful for your help. Will never forget.
David helped us buy our first home. It was a difficult time when prices were climbing and people were involved in bidding wars. He provided expert support and guidance and helped us to find a house that fit our needs perfectly. Not only that, David has continued to be available for advice and assistance over the past 18 years as we made decisions regarding moving and adding onto our home. We will always feel grateful for David's care and excellent advice.

I am writing to tell you that the house looks so beautiful. Thank you very much for all your efforts. You really did an amazing job getting it to look so good in its "original" condition. Your idea to remove the awning was inspired - we can't believe we didn't talk our Mother into that when we first bought it. Now the house looks like a beautiful little Mediterranean cottage.

Thank you for all of your help this year! Buying a great house at a great price and selling a great house at a great price is a lot of work, and you did over and above to make this possible while we started our family. I especially appreciate all you did to help us get our house in Oakland ready and livable for the twins. Many thanks.

David is very experienced and was extremely professional throughout the entire process. He thoroughly explained every detail in preparing my father's house for sale. I was kept up to date on every offer and our appropriate counter offers. I was very pleased with the results of David's hard work and dedication. I highly recommend David Kafton for all of your real estate needs.
You did a fabulous job on the remodel and staging!!!
David has marketed the Berkeley Townhouse very effectively. We should all thank David for the masterful manner in which he has guided us.
