For the last 18 years David Bergman has served a wide range of clientele throughout the mid- peninsula. From families to Silicon Valley executives, the Los Altos native has earned a strong reputation for his unique skill set and comprehensive knowledge.
After moving to San Diego to study Finance, David was a successful general contractor for more than 20 years in the Bay Area. His niche expertise helps him pin point a property’s strengths and weaknesses – an invaluable skill that greatly benefits his clientele.
“There are very few agents who have the background that I do in terms of the construction experience, understanding how houses are built and how they work, as well as my extensive real estate background,” says David.
When it comes to buyers, the top producer easily identifies walk away issues, saving clients both time and money. David combs through properties as if he were the buyer, relaying if it’s a wise investment, what work needs to be done, and when it’s best to just walk away.
Naturally, his expertise is equally effective for sellers. He knows certain, minor improvements can result in an exponential return, especially in today’s aggressive market. He uses his critical judgment to evaluate which updates will draw a wider range of buyers to the home. This not only results in multiple offers, but also drives up the value, helping sellers walk away with figures well over the asking price.
“With my construction background I’m able to look at the project, know if the contractor is doing things right, oversee the process, and really help the seller so they have the least time involved to get the property ready for sale.”
This formidable combination is just one of the reasons David has ranked within the top 5% of Intero Realtors since 2002. In 2005, he joined the group that writes the contracts used by local real estate associates, a period that not only heightened his contractual insight, but also served as the turning point in his career. Since then his integrity, honesty, and warm personality have made him more than a Realtor, but also a trusted ally within the community.
Skilled in land development, David also helps clients find the right lot to build new homes on. He also helps developers discover properties, identify the best way to build their project, and sell it for the highest return.
When he’s not advising clientele David continues to give back to the community. He was previously the chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, the president of the local fire district, and was on its board for nine years. He’s also been on the local Community College Bond Oversight Committee, and is a member of the Rotary Club. Aside from volunteering, he enjoys spending time with his fiancé, Angela, trying new cuisines, flying private planes, and exploring the outdoors.
For David it all comes down to putting his best foot forward, whether that’s in his personal or professional life. He believes people deserve superlative service, and prides himself on extending just that.
“I don’t think most people know what services they’re not getting, because it’s such an easy business to come into. When you have the experience, the knowledge and the background that I have it really makes a difference.”
