Many of our clients were once just visitors
who fell in love with all of the charm and conveniences that living in Florida affords.
Here's what a few have to say:
Dear David, On behalf of Annette and I, we want to thank you for all of your help and guidance in purchasing our new condo in the Sand Key Club. You were great during this whole process. To be honest, if it wasn’t for you, we would have walked away from this business adventure months ago. Right from the start, your knowledge of Gulf property, your organization during our… day trips, and your ongoing, consistent research of properties that matched our requirements, and your patience with us was always evident. We put our trust in you and now, we consider you our friend.
You worked a long time and hung in there with us until we were able to secure the purchase of a condo. We love the condo, the furnishings, the building, and the location. Thanks again for all your help. Rick and Annette P.

Good Afternoon, David – I just wanted to take a minute and put pen to paper regarding your excellent care to help James and I sell our condominium at Pier House on Indian Rocks Beach.
We travel in and out of town regularly and have come to trust out home too your care while we have been away. How nice to have complete faith in our real estate… agent! While the real estate market has been up and down over the past few months, we found you marketed our home with attention to what mattered to us, the sellers, and to our potential buyers. We are grateful for your marketing expertise. We especially appreciate your insight on the staging of the Living and Dining Room areas. Please find this letter to be the highest in compliments to your Real Estate excellence– your care, attention to advertising and excellent ability to listen was essential in the recent sale of our home. We simply could not have done it without you! Sincerely, Margie M. Read more “Margie – Indian Rocks Beach”
To Whom It May Concern, During the last several years I often thought of purchasing a condominium somewhere along the Gulf coast between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach. I pursued this dream by gleaning through local newspapers in search of private owner sales, driving up and down Gulf Blvd. looking at For Sale signs and sometimes…actually seeing the units themselves. Put simply, I did a lot of looking and… a lot of thinking but I never made the first real move to purchase a condominium until I had the good fortune to meet and work with David Christ in Indian Rocks Beach, FL. I truly was very hesitant to work with a Realtor as I held them in the same esteem as car salesmen, divorce lawyers, and proctologists. How wrong I was!!! David Christ treated me and my significant other, Rhea, with such kindness, patience, warmth, genuine understanding and professional courtesy that changed my whole attitude about working with a realtor to purchase property. Not only did he spend considerable time searching out properties to show us, but the manner in which he followed up on our questions with further research and specific data was very impressive. David Christ helped me find the exact “starter” condo that I had thought about for three years but would never have found and purchased on my own. I am very pleased with his assistance and even more pleased to consider him as a friend. He is truly a very special Realtor! With most sincerity, Tom K.

To Whom It May Concern: We would like to take a moment to let you know how we felt about the service we received from David Christ. We had corresponded with David via e-mail for about 1 month prior to our purchase. David had sent us listings on a daily basis and always followed thru to get our feedback. We finally made arrangements to have David show us several… listings. We were on a very limited time schedule, about 4 days. David is one of the most conscientious salespeople we’ve dealt with. He is very polite, knowledgeable, answered all the questions asked of him in a timely manner, and a pleasure to do business with. He dedicated his entire weekend to close out our real estate transaction. We appreciate all of David’s help and personalized service throughout this entire business deal. I have also recommended David to several of our friends in Connecticut who will also be relocating to Florida. Sincerely, Donald B. and Joanne M. Read more “Donald and Joanne”
Good Morning David, Just wanted to say you again for ALL your help in getting Palm Drive sold. We know that it was a tremendous effort on your part and that of others on your team, but the deal would not have come to pass without you! Thanks also to Christi for keeping on top of the mortgage commitment. We will be listing our Sunset Beach property with you… in the spring. We want to watch the market. Noah’s dad will be in touch with you for a property very soon. We look forward to working with you again in the near future, once we sell our house in California!

From the first time we visited the St. Petersburg/Clearwater area, we instantly fell in love with it. That was 13 years ago. From that moment, we would come back once or twice a year. Each time we visited, we told ourselves that we would buy our own place. When we finally decided to start looking, we contacted several Realtors with hopes in finding our dream vacation/second home. Like with… most first time buyers, we weren’t taken very seriously and it was very difficult to get a Realtor to work with us. We have rented from your office previously. One day we were searching your wonderful website for beachfront condos for sale when we came across one that was of interest to us. We emailed requesting more information and that is when David Christ came into our life. David emailed us information back. From that moment, David became our eyes and ears in our search. He scheduled viewing appointments, took pictures for us and emailed them to us. When we found a few condos of interest, we flew down to meet with David to view them. Once we found what we were looking for, David took control. Because we live out of state and both work full time, it was wonderful having David see through our purchase from start to finish. He oversaw the whole process and made certain that an inspection was setup, repairs taken care of, moved the loan process along, and brought the process to closure. David has made our condo purchase experience painless. We felt like seasoned real estate purchasers working with David. There is no other Realtor out there like David Christ. We look forward to working with him again in the future. Sincerely,

Hi, Pat! We are writing to let you know that you have a wonderful associate by the name of David Christ. He is top-notch, professional, & always goes the extra mile! My husband & I came down from Indiana to vacation at Indian Rocks earlier in the year & ended up staying for six weeks. After seeing how the price of real estate has skyrocketed, we decided we better… go ahead & buy now, as if we waited any longer, we would mostly likely be priced out of the market. David took us everywhere. We went to Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, Holiday, just to name a few. In the end, we bought a house in Largo no farther than a mile & half from the beach. Buying a house is stressful. David was always patient & you never felt like you were dealing with a salesman. And most of all, he was always there to help & still is! I don’t know how we could have done it without him. As we have not yet sold our home in Indiana, David is still helping in the handling of our new home. Not only do we think he’s a terrific Realtor – we consider him to be a good friend. Couldn’t ask for anything more! Best Regards,
Bruce & Vicki G. Read more “Couldn’t Ask For Anything More!”
To whom it may concern, It is with the utmost pleasure and confidence that I can offer my recommendation of David Christ as a real estate agent. If I were to describe David in just a few words, I would call him patient, thorough, and most importantly, loyal. While I was in Florida (from Chicago) looking at waterfront property, David was my only source of transportation. He was willing… to spend many hours chauffeuring me to and fro, and was considerate enough to return to the same location several times over so that I could be absolutely sure about what I felt. When it came time to make offers, there was no doubt in my mind that David was on my side. He was willing to put an offer in at my price no matter if it was well below list. I never got the impression that he put his commission before my value. And when another Realtor tried to muscle in with a higher offer, David had a lawyer draft a letter that successfully held the wolf at bay. David is a good Realtor, and a good man. I have faith that I can depend upon his services in the long term as well, now that our deal is done. Sincerely, Francis P.

Dear David: It has once again been a pleasure working with you on the recent purchase of our second investment property. Being out-of-state owners/investors, you have made all the difference in the world in making these investments possible. From start to finish in providing us with information on investment opportunities to representing us at closing, you have left no detail unattended. Long after closing, you have continued to make… yourself available in every way. We are most grateful for this extraordinary level of service. We are confident when we refer friends, family and business associates to you, that you will take care of them with the same level of dedication and commitment to excellence that you have provided us during the past two years. It is a pleasure doing business with you and we look forward to working with you again soon. Sincerely, Pat C and Noah C Read more “Noah and Pat – Investment #2”
To Whom It May Concern: We have the distinct pleasure of writing a letter of recommendation for our real estate agent, in Florida, David Christ. We have known David in our capacity as buyer/client for approximately one year. It was the summer of 2003 when we decided to start looking for an investment property in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. We are native New Englanders, looking to retire… as potential snowbirds in 15-20 years, but we had the desire to invest now. When we started we thought, “Oh my God this will never work — this will be nearly impossible” David made it possible for us.
Seldom have we encountered someone as professional, persistent and straight forward in his work ethic, as David. David’s strong points are that of patience and the willingness to take on the challenge of aggressive, indecisive, confused, and frightened potential buyers and making the whole process pleasant and uneventful. David also deals well under pressure and somehow rest assures you high quality results despite problems and deadlines.
In closing, we would whole-heartedly like to recommend David. We feel as though we have made a friend and confidant for life.
If you have any questions or need more information about our real estate experience, pleased do not hesitate to contact us at the above address or phone number. Sincerely, Nancy & Kevin C.

Dear David, What can we say, when we first thought of buying our own place in Florida we had very little idea of what we were looking for and knew even less about the American Real Estate market. Hew lucky we were to find your details on the internet and make contact with you before our first visit. You were kind enough to show us some of the properties… we thought would interest us and others that you thought would be of more interest to us. You were able to assess our requirements very quickly and we felt able to trust in your judgement particularly when back in England. When something turned up which we thought was of interest you were able to provide us with not only details but also digital photographs which gave us a better appreciation of the property on offer. Your assistance once we had decided on a purchase was invaluable and we are certain your negotiating skills with the seller’s agent helped to secure us our property. Without your help we could not have exchanged a contract so quickly and we do not know what we would have done if you had not been there to guide us through the American Real Estate purchase procedures. We cannot thank you enough for not only your expertise but also your friendliness throughout our search and purchase. We feel we have a new friend who we would have no problem in recommending to anyone wishing to look for and buy a property in Florida. We look forward to meeting with you again on our next trip out. Yours sincerely,

I am writing to let you know what a pleasure it has been working with your agency. We had the opportunity to meet with you personally during our visit to your office in May and were impressed from the very beginning. David Christ was our first contact in search of investment property. David was extremely helpful in providing us with print outs of properties both available and recently sold… to help us in our search. He arranged for us to visit a number of properties in our very short time frame, and as a result of his efforts, we were able to purchase a very nice property in Belleair Beach. David has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help us not only in working with the sellers but various other matters including the closing and other miscellaneous but important details. During our visit to your office, we met several times with Mike <>, who provided us with invaluable information, which enabled us to narrow down the three properties we were considering and ultimately purchase the property that was right for us based on the criteria and goals we were trying to accomplish. We are now working together with Kent in getting our new property rented and have great confidence that your office will be able to find a good, long-term renter, and make sure our property is managed well. Again, thank you for providing us with such good service in every way. We are already planning another trip to your area and will be focusing on our next investment property with the help of David and your staff. Sincerely, Patricia C. Noah C.

Here we are again writing to say thank you for all of your help with the recent purchase of our third investment property from you!!! The level of trust, dedication and commitment we have found in working with you is unsurpassed. Your expertise and attention to detail enabled us to thoroughly and quickly evaluate the recent Sunset Beach home opportunity that you brought to our attention.… By providing us with extensive research information, ample photographs of the property, and obtaining answers to our many questions, we were able to purchase this home without an on-site visit. As residents of California, this was a tremendous help as we were able to act very quickly on a great investment opportunity with the confidence that we had made a good business decision. We sincerely appreciate all of the follow up that you have given us with our investment properties long after each deal has closed. In addition to checking on each of our properties after all of the hurricanes has passed, the extra efforts you have made in helping us to secure a tenant for our new property is again going above and beyond all of our expectations. David, your help and continued guidance has allowed us to expand our real estate portfolio in such a way that fits both our short and long term investment goals. We are grateful to have you as our Realtor and as our friend. We look forward to working with you again soon! Sincerely, Patricia C. and Noah C Read more “Noah and Pat – Investment #3”
Dear David, Thank you SO much for all the hard work you’ve done for me!!! You are not only a fantastic real estate agent but also a fantastic person. You were always putting forth a gigantic, honest effort. You went beyond duty on our behalf so many times — my telephone didn’t work, unexpected bugs appeared; you checked on the house often; you reassured me through, what was it,… 6 closing dates. On and on the list could go. Last fall when I sent e-mails to real estate agents, only three of you were brave enough to take on an old house on N. Ft. Harrison Ave. You were definitely MUCH more impressive than the other two. Irshad still doesn’t have an exact retirement date. It’s supposed to be mid October. I’m going to CA at the end of September to start packing stuff. (Shall I throw half the stuff on the lawn again for give-away?) It will be good to not have the responsibility of the house worrying me. I didn’t mind paying bills while I thought I’d go back often. But when I realized I went back only twice in the year, it definitely was no longer feasible to carry all the expenses. As you know, with its age, it needs constant TLC, and it was going to need a lot of repairs soon. Randy was such a blessing with all the hard labor he did! Thank you for all your patience with us and the house. Sincerely, Arlene S. Read more “Irshad and Arlene”
Dear David, Dennis and I just spent the past ten days in our new condo and couldn’t be happier. It is the perfect location with the golf course in our backyard and Gulf just around the corner. Our four boys were very impressed. We realize that this condo is our starter home in Florida. It was hard to leave. Jan, Feb, and March is rented out. My son DJ… graduates in two weeks and has been offered a job in Tampa. I have a son in Ft. Myers selling for Volkswagen until he claims residency in May. He will finish his last year of college in Florida and anticipates teaching in warm weather. My third son Dan loves the University of Tampa and takes the credit for our happiness in Florida. Keith graduates high school this year and who knows where he will end up. We played gold at Imperial, Bardmoor, Twin Brooks, East Bay, and Grandezza. The boys were happy we did not choose East Bay Condos, Isla is a much better location and place to live. The Don CeSar is a great beach and is in my walking distance. What a beautiful area. We had a great dinner at the Sun Porch Restaurant at the Don CeSar and watched the sunset. We thought about seeing you but didn’t want to disturb you during this busy holiday time. We thank you for the many times you searched for the perfect place for us. Isla del Sol is the exact place we needed! Thanks, and please let us know of any hot deals on pre-construction sites come up near an Intracoastal area. Have a wonderful Christmas! Shannon N. Read more “Dennis and Shannon”
To Whom it May Concern, I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of David Christ. I have known David approximately six months. Although that may seem like little time to get to know someone, during my twenty years in the U. S. Coast Guard and more than twenty years in the U.S. Postal Service, I have had the good fortune to have met many fine… people. It is my experience that certain people, with exceptional traits, stand out above the rest. David Christ is such a person. Having moved frequently, I also felt we had some insight into the real estate profession. Surely, after having been through a variety of real estate transactions over the years, we might be able to try and sell our home ourselves. But it wasn’t going to be a simple matter. As we approached this important phase in our retirement plans, the real estate market had taken a downward turn, and increases in insurance rates and taxes were putting more pressure on an already sluggish market. I perceived a rather difficult time selling our home, and we had hoped for a painless and uncomplicated transition. As we procrastinated, it became obvious that we needed a special real estate professional. Finally our search ended, when we found David Christ. It was clear from the very beginning, that David was indeed the right man for the job. David was open and friendly, enthusiastic, and a pleasure to be with. David approached every twist and turn with exceptional enthusiasm and confidence. I never detected a bit of negativism in his demeanor, even though I sometimes could not see just how things were going to work out, David never gave us reason to doubt that he had everything under control. But it was more than David’s keen sense of direction and expert professionalism. He is also a man of outstanding character, which he often demonstrated during our relationship. David always insisted on full and honest disclosure throughout our transactions. There were no hidden details to uncover, nor reading between the lines. Everything had to be above board. I believe him to be a man of distinct integrity and fairness. I consider ourselves very fortunate to have had David Christ handle our real estate transactions. He was the perfect person for the difficult task at hand. It was a pleasure to have known him both as a person and as a partner in a business transaction. Sincerely,
David LDG Sr Read more “The Right Man For The Job”
David, On behalf of Annette and I, we want to thank you for your efforts to successfully sell our condo at the Sand Key Club on Gulf Blvd in Clearwater Beach. You tireless energy and commitment to sell our condo resulted in success in the midst of a very challenging real estate market, especially for beach condos. Given the huge volume of condos for sale, your experience in the… local marketplace, and your ability to employ several different sales strategies, gave us an edge when it came to the competition around us. We first met when you helped us to buy the condo, you spent a lot of time with us, making sure we were happy. I wouldn’t have thought to use anyone else when it was time for us to sell the property. We became friends over that time. David, please feel free to call upon us for a reference anytime. Thank you, again. Best Regards, Richard and Annette P.

Hello, David- Well, we made it! Tennessee is beautiful! The move went smoothly and we are appreciative of all you did for us in selling our home in Pinellas Park! The market was not what we wanted to sell in, but you certainly did a great job in making it as painless as possible! My wife and I are grateful for all the continuous support– Your team has been… great to work with! We have relied upon your real estate knowledge and support throughout our entire listing to selling process. At times, things may have been challenging, but we are grateful for all you did for us, including specific advice on how to best handle our cats, and make the home most appealing to potential buyer prospects. Amazing, the difference a few pictures can make! Personally, with the Real Estate Market being as unpredictable as it has been, we may have doubted the market, but knew you had our best foot forward. You listened to what was important to us, the sellers, as well as taught us what to expect from today’s market. We are grateful for your insightful expertise and all the time you have taken working with us selling our home. Thank you, David! Keep up the excellent Real Estate work. Sincerely, Chad W Read more “Pinellas Park to Tennessee”
To Whom it May Concern, I would like to personally extend my gratitude to one of your associates, David Christ. We recently purchased a short sale home, in Seminole, FL. Short sale properties can be quite difficult. We were under constant time pressure from the banks to close the deal in 30 days, or less no deal. I truly feel that we would not have acquired this property, if… it were not for David’s excellent and hard work. David worked many long hard hours to help us achieve our real estate dreams. He was available all day every day, early in the morning and even late at night. Even after the sale, David continues to help us. I think that the ultimate complement in the real estate industry is to refer other people to your establishment. I know that I will be sure to recommend David as a Realtor to all of my friends and family in the future. Thanks again Dave for all of your excellent work and help! Sandra K. PA-C and Brian T.
