My experience with Dave Shalabi has been awful. He represented us in the unsuccessful sale of our house nearly 2 years ago. When the house did not sell, we put it up for rent with Mr. Shalabi representing us as property manager. During this time there were numerous disruptions with the tenants. We were contacted for everything that could possibly go wrong in a house on a level of detail which felt like my wife and I might as well have been managing the property ourselves. At one point the tenants were so upset they threw a microwave in the lawn of the office of Mr. Shalabi in order to get him to address the repair. I have to give it to them, because this actually made him do his job for a day and replace the microwave.
Under the representation of a new agent, my wife and I sold our house in a matter of just 1 month! Even though Mr. Shalabi made no effort in the execution of this sale, yet he still found it reasonable to put a lein on our property which prevents us from receiving our funds under the claim he is owed money for management duties (which he has proven he is not qualified to do) and for the sale which he believes he is owed money for (again he did not represent us).
Here is where you need to be careful with Dave Shalabi. He puts some draconian language in his management contract (which any sane person signing a contract with another sane person would not expect to encounter) that gives him the "right" to sell your house if he manages it as rental property. I don't know if Mr. Shalabi realizes this, but taking away someone's rights is neither ethical nor a good way to do business, especially on a referral basis (i.e., this review).
I can't recommend Dave highly enough! Dave clearly loves his job and is upbeat and positive. He is a complete professional with skilled expertise in real estate, and is always only a phone call/em ail away. Dave lends great support and provides sincere advice and feedback. He is a genuine listener and is consistently willing to help. Dave has a great way of simplifying real estate while keeping things efficient and moving them forward. He is always one step ahead and provides clear expectations along the way. If you're looking for an agent who will be committed, driven, and honest, Dave Shalabi is your guy!
