Forest Hill Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
David, we want to thank you for all of your hard work and expert guidance in the sale of our condo.
You and I have been talking about real estate and our building for a number of years. And for years we said we would not sell, but when we decided to do just that, there was no question that you would represent us. Your knowledge of our building and the people who live in it and want to live it is unsurpassed.
And it came through loud and clear in the process of selling our home. Your advice on staging and lighting and de-cluttering ensured that everything showed to its best. You walked us through all of the steps, guided us through the offers and we are delighted with the outcome.
Thank you! This was a big step for us and you made it that much easier and certainly profitable!

To an "amazing" and "awesome" person... please don't ever change! Thank you for the great real estate knowledge and service you provided!
David is an exceptional real estate agent that shares his expertise of what is happening in the market and how you should go about selling your house, but also realizes that it is your home, after all. He is patient and goes the extra mile for his clients. He even provides names of contractors and others to help with the staging process. If you take David’s expert advice, he will definitely help you sell your home.
David is great in helping you find your dream home. He is willing to show you as many houses as it takes for you to find your dream home. But what we like most about David is his patience and unwavering commitment to his clients. David stuck with us to help us find our first home in Toronto 13 years ago, when other agents didn’t. He also helped us when we recently found our new family home.
You were recommended, to me, as a competent real estate agent, and after meeting with you, we agreed to proceed. Timing was critical in this instance and I was, initially, concerned about the impact on the sale price. You, immediately, allayed my concern by discussing the strategy for the sale of the property and all of the details of the listing agreement. You researched every facet of the existing market and ensured that an optimal sale price was set in order to attract the appropriate potential buyers. Once the listing agreement was signed, you went out of your way to recommend and organize details which would enhance the property for showing. The materials produced for the listing and for on-site distribution were beautifully put together with colour presentations and flattering, accurate, descriptive narrative. I, immediately, felt that I was "in good hands" and that the process would be positive.
Within a short time frame, there were two offers, on the table, both with pros and cons. You reviewed each one, in detail, and recommended a position. You were able to negotiate a very advantageous price, for the property, with the preferred potential buyer. The offer was much better than I expected and I was both surprised and impressed that you were able to accomplish this result. The offer was accepted and the closing went very smoothly.
After the closing, instead of a congratulatory "good-bye", I received the offer of your assistance in dealing with selling and/or removing various furnishing, china and small appliances. You had connections to the various parties required to expedite the clearing of these contents.
The service that we have received from you was exemplary and I feel confident that we would receive similar service in the future.

After a separation, I needed to find not just another place to live, but a new home, and fast. A place I could make a fresh start.
David Birnbaum came highly recommended by Canadian Divorce Services as a professional Real Estate agent.
He understood not only the condominium developments he showed me, but the neighbourhoods in which we were exploring, and he listened to my needs and observed my reactions.
In the end, David found me the exact place I was looking for in the neighborhood I wanted. The unit met everything I wanted and needed. He didn't just find me a new condo, he helped me to find the new life I needed by listening and understanding his client.
When I sell again, I wouldn't think twice to have David manage my needs. He made the experience so easy and fun, it was like an adventure!
Thank you David for playing a big part in shaping my new life!
David has been a tremendous asset in my home search. He has a deep understanding of the marketplace and was able to focus in on my needs, wants and budget, resulting in finding me the perfect house at a great price, even in this chaotic Toronto real estate market. Thank you David, all your time and effort is greatly appreciated.
I realize that this is supposed to be a testimonial rather than a letter. But my experience with you calls for something beyond a mere testament of your professional conduct. I have dealt with many agents over the 22 years I’ve been purchasing and selling my personal residence and investment properties, and this is the first time I’ve ever felt compelled to write a letter of gratitude.
The words “thank you” don’t quite seem to say enough. I knew you were the right person from the first time you came into my home. You knew exactly what was needed to pull things together. I trusted you from then and that trust grew as we began to work together. I tend to micromanage most areas in my life, and it was truly refreshing to let go and trust in you. I am so glad that I deferred to you on each step of the way from the list price to the insane triple open house over the worst snow storm in Toronto.
Your demeanor had the right mix of calm and conviction that I needed to push me when I was lagging, and comfort me when I felt as though I was losing my mind. The sale of this particular home was extremely painful for many reasons as you know. But you showed compassion and understanding that went beyond what I expected of an agent, and I am eternally grateful.
You fulfilled the role of an exceptional agent by displaying your incredible knowledge and negotiation skills. Your guidance on staging, photography and listing details showcased my home in such a way that resulted in multiple offers and a sale price of 10% above list price within one week. But it’s the human factor that has truly impressed me.
I am thankful to have you as my agent, but blessed to call you my friend.
Thank you for your professionalism and your friendship. I’m looking forward to many other business transactions and personal interactions with you in the future.
On behalf of the three “Bodsworth siblings”, I would like to thank you most sincerely for the very professional and sensitive job you did in selling our family home this spring.
From our very first meeting the three of us felt very comfortable with you and we were very impressed with the background you had gathered on sales in the area, severing the extra lot and the positive and negative aspects of the unique Bodsworth property. We were thrilled with the way you suggested we market the property and understood your push to get the house on the spring market.
Your assistance in moving furniture, boxes and books was greatly appreciated particularly by Neville. You and your photographer caught the feel of the Bodsworth home superbly and showcased it beautifully. Your consideration of the neighbours was a very tactful extra.
The house sale and the caring way you handled the little things were very gratifying. We would not change anything!
Thank you for your sensitivity, your guidance and your kindness in working with us. It was a pleasure.
Thank you David for making our home buying experience stress-free. Working with you allowed us to find a home that had everything on our wish list. Your expertise and thorough research of the area we wanted was instrumental in us buying a home without having to make any compromises. We highly recommend working with David!
