Tell Us Your Story

I really enjoyed working with Dave.

As a first time home buyer, I was new to the process of home searching, obtaining a mortgage, putting in an offer, and so much more. Dave helped guide me through this process, showing patience and kindness mixed with humor. He helped me move past some of my frustration with the home buying process, and he was able to point me in the direction of a lender that was able to work with me. All of this work and help led to me being able to purchase my first home in exactly the neighborhood I wanted. Dave has continued to follow-up with me, and I've been able to reach out to him if I have questions. I would highly recommend working with Dave.

Working with Dave throughout the sale of our home and purchase of a new one was a genuine delight!

He priced our previous home well and moved it quickly. Dave managed the choreography of both deals, though, with a reassuring attention to detail and a responsiveness to questions that we deeply appreciated. Couldn’t be more pleased and would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the Madison area

Dave was really great!

We met 5 realtors before we stumbled across Dave at an open house that the other 5 didn't seem to want go to. Dave also took the extra time finding us a house that met our needs using street and satellite view,. Dave really went above and beyond. He was never late. Always answered emails, texts and calls. He was honestly 1000% on his game the whole time and I think is partially why we were able to find a home in under 3 months.

Clint Huber and Melissa Gamat-Huber

Buying a condo was completely uncharted territory for us, and we were grateful to have Dave on our side to sort through the choices.

He knows the area, the market, and is honest and helpful in his feedback. He's also fun to chat with. We recommend hiring Dave if you are buying or selling--he's got your back.

David was truly amazing.

With having a person in a wheelchair within our household, so we couldn't just settle for any house and then, plan for remodels later. There are accommodations that are needed upon move in, ie.. you can't make a 90 degree turn from a wheelchair into a bathroom, if the hallway is too narrow to even hit a 45. David surveyed each home, went out of his way with taking measurements and looking at angles to ensure ease of moving around. When we toured homes, he talked through all the pros and cons of each including the landscaping, even advising when trees would have to be removed due to their condition. This could be a significant cost for the buyer, that most wouldn't even be thinking about at the time. He was attentive and prompt with responses to all of our (many) questions, and provided a wide range of home listings for us to review. It's no secret that it's currently a "sellers market", anticipating ups and downs as a buyer is to be expected, especially when you see homes go for almost 15k over asking price. David was great as an advisor and an amazing buyers advocate. In the end, he found us a house that was within our budget and still had everything we needed to call it a home. Thank you so much to David and Weichert Realtors for their outstanding and personable customer service! Some realtors can come off as pushy, just looking to close a deal and receive their commission. David, however, makes you feel like family, with truly your best interests as the focus of the journey.

Our realtor, David Pausch, went above and beyond when it came to answering questions, anticipating needs, and being available for us.

The process was made incredibly easy and relatively stress-free. The company had online processes in place that streamlined the search process and the signing of documents. I’d highly recommend David and Roost to anyone looking for a home.

Ron Collins and Karl Reinhardt, Madison, WI

I cannot thank Dave enough for the guidance and support he provided us through the complex, confusing, and often frustrating process of selling a house.

He patiently helped us out all the way through. We ran into a several issues throughout the process, which he negotiated in matter that satisfied both us and our buyer. I cannot recommend working with him enough.

Sam White, Madison, WI

Dave has now helped us sell two houses, and both times the process was smooth and painless.

In our case, it helps to have a realtor with a sense of humor who can talk us down and help out when we’re stressed and anxious. Dave’s marketing and open house plans generated great traffic, we had multiple offers in hand within days of listing, and sold for more than the list price both times. The bonus of working with Dave is that he has multiple contacts for everything from photography to masonry contractors, so you can get your house ready for the market quickly and easily

Layla Merrifield, Madison, WI

We first met Dave at one of his open houses, when we had our tired three year old with us.

Dave was so gracious in engaging him and helping avoid a melt down that when we got serious about looking at houses we knew who we wanted our realtor to be. On the professional front Dave was great in helping us find what we were looking for ( a challenging quest in Madison's tough real estate market). He walked us through the process step by step, provided quality referrals when we needed a home inspector and other repair people, and has kept in touch in case we have questions or need advice. We highly recommend Dave.

Peter Beeson and Richie Thelen, Madison WI

Julie White, Cottage Grove, WI

Working with Dave was so incredibly fun!

He got to know us and what we were looking for, and we felt fully involved in the search for our perfect home! The amazing work he did to help us stage our own home had it sold after 4 days on the market! We couldn’t have done it without his expertise or dedication!

Nina and Sean Kenefick, Madison, WI

Dave was a great realtor.

He was professional and found what we were looking for in a home. At showings, Dave was looking at possible problems along with positives. We trusted Dave’s opinion. When we did find places we were interested in, Dave was following up with the listing agent, seller, and repair people to give us the information we needed to make decisions. Once we started the process of buying our house, Dave was on top of everything and made sure all the pieces came together. He went above and beyond to help us find a house and we would recommend him to anyone.

Liz and Drew Pyatskowit

Dave was amazing to work with to buy our first home.

He was very supportive and knowledgable during the entire process and was always available when we needed. This could have been a very overwhelming process but Dave helped us to make it manageable. He is a fantastic asset to have on your side when buying a house!

Tanis Steed and Michael Tredupp

Dave was great to work with!

He made selling my condo really easy and straightforward and always explained thoroughly what was going on at the various steps. I particularly appreciated that he saved me from having to take many trips across town to the vacant condo I was selling during a busy period at work for me. I will work with Dave again next time I’m looking to make a real estate transaction.

Larissa Back, Madison, WI

David kept us informed and comfortable in every aspect of the process.

There can be a lot of stress in selling a house & David helped us manage that. He understands the market and what might help a property move. He had great suggestions, but was not overbearing! His winning personality also helped.

Jim Chiolino

Dave was great to work with!

We were first time home buyers and looked at tons of properties and had tons of questions and Dave showed us all of them and answered our questions in a timely manner! He made looking at houses fun and gave us lots of tips when considering different things. We highly recommend Dave!

Morgan Wedewer and Will Pierce, Madison WI

From the very moment he picked up the phone David was dedicated to working hard for my family.

He shared his expertise from the get go and followed through with every word he said. I couldn't have been happier working with him!

Rachel Bledsoe

David was extremely helpful in finding me a home!

He’s helped me with all my questions, and had considerate and thoughtful feedback to help me determine just how much home I need for my lifestyle. His insight and professionalism is absolutely staggering, and I’m confident that the home I bought will be the home I love thanks to him. If you’re looking for a home, definitely talk to David!

Quinn Ducey, Madison WI

Our house is officially sold!

So many thanks to David Pausch, who guided us through this process with patience, know-how, encouragement, and skill. And good humor! We are so happy with how everything turned out. This was our first time selling a house and there were many emotions involved. Dave was infinitely patient with all of our questions; supportive and kind with regard to our emotions; all while handling eveything so that we didn't get overwhelmed. We can't recommend him highly enough if you're looking to buy or sell.
