What Our Clients Say
Waterloo, ON is where I lived for the last 10.75 years. Although my home was in Ontario, I found full-time work in Manitoba. Once I was certain that my work in Manitoba was meaningful and secure I decided to sell my Waterloo, home. Dave Roach was the agent I was referred to by a friend. Not only was my home sold over a weekend, I received more than the selling price. The top class service will never be forgotten. He was thorough and efficient. The team he brought in, the interior decorator, for staging, the photographer and a carpenter to complete a deck project were the very best. Dave had a solution for every problem. No problem was to big or too small. He completed the sale with a thoughtful gift of a personalized photo book of my property sold. For a stress free home sale or purchase, I recommend Dave and his fabulous team. Be rest assured you will be dealing with the best.Cheryl N.
Dave and his team worked with us to find the perfect home for our family. They were always quick to reply to our questions, offering advice and support every step of the way, helping us to navigate the real estate market with confidence and peace of mind. I’ve gladly recommended Dave and his team to friends and family members because his wealth of experience and his genuine willingness to go to the extra mile is invaluable!Mark & Kristin
The Dave Roach Team provided us with an outstanding level of service in preparing our home for sale, marketing it and facilitating the sale in a very short period of time. We were impressed with the integrity, thoroughness and effective communication from start to finish.Henry & Grace
Dave Roach is an excellent realtor! He and his team are knowledgeable, competent and helpful. He’s also an excellent negotiator which is very important in today’s real estate market. I would highly recommend him for selling or buying!Alan & Michelle
Dave has a very professional team. We enjoyed dealing with him and his nice staff. Though I found the house myself (on Kijiji – keep an eye open yourself too!), the negotiations and all other arrangements were done by the team. Just ask Dave to do the final nego – he’s very good at them and may save you big bucks. Highly recommended.Ed T.
Dave is knowledgeable, helpful, professional and courteous. One of the best!Ajoy O.
Dave and his team are exceptional from the first interaction to long after your move takes place. My move from Oakville to Waterloo was made significantly less stressful thanks to Dave. My agent in Oakville recommended Dave and I was grateful to have someone who knew the community well, honed in quickly on the type of homes that matched my goals, and negotiated the purchase well at a time when the market was riddled with multiple offers. The follow-up and continued focus on customer service once I moved in was impressive. Dave wants happy home owners not just sales. I am forever grateful for his kindness and knowledge and would recommend him to any home buyer.Marilyn C.
When moving to a new area, you are not always familiar with whom to contact when you need things done (plumbing, roofing, electrical). Yet when I asked Dave for a recommendation on whom to contact for my need his suggestions were good and the individuals professional. That helps to alleviate the anxiety of moving into a home when you know a good contact like Dave is there.Francis & Jun
Dave Roach and his team is SO MUCH MORE than just (another) realtor shop! After living in our home for almost a decade with four small boys, the house needed more than just a little bit of TLC to get it ready for the market. A project that should have taken at least 3 months was done in less than half that time, and Dave was the perfect project manager. From the contractors to the flooring guys, the landscapers to the stager, he allowed us to focus on our busy lives and not worry about the house. The end result? A beautiful house, a sale that closed within a couple of weeks, and a happy, “it is done” us. Thank you, Dave, Katherine, and the rest of the team!Hari & Wendy S.
Thank you so much for everything and for being so caring and compassionate to Reg. You went above and beyond!Garry & Karin
Dave was patient with us while we casually browsed the market and kept us abreast of market trends until we found our perfect house. We were extremely satisfied with the level of customer service. Definitely a ten out of ten! We will recommend him to our friends.Rachel & Brad
Thank you for the work you have done for us, and for your continual professionalism and attention to detail. You have provided us with peace of mind. I know that whatever happens Dave will be there to help us handle it. You have been thorough and helpful through this whole process, and we really appreciate it. We are lucky that we found you and asked you to be our agent.Thomas & Carmen T.
Dave helped narrow our search so we weren’t wasting our time, negotiated well with the seller, made it a more personable experience, got to know us as a family in order to find a home that was a good match (a great match, in fact!!), entertained our kids, worked with our mortgage broker to confirm financing, booked our home inspection for us on short notice with his trusted inspector. We were really impressed with the services that the Dave Roach Team provided!Ryan & Melinda S.
Dave and his team listened to our concerns and helped us make better decisions. It was also great to have staging, home improvement, and home inspection advice at no additional cost.Ross & Judi P.
We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work. You went above and beyond what any Realtor should have to endure. You were the light at the end of our fading tunnel. For this, we would like to thank you, and we would gladly send everyone in your direction for their real estate needs. You are a true professional!Juergen & Carol L.
Since we have used Dave a few times, we always expect excellence and Dave and his team delivers! Our calls are answered promptly, viewings are always coordinated, and email communication is excellent. Katherine Sweet has been amazing through this process.Geri S.
This was our long-time family home since 1988. Dave urged us to get the house on the market early, and his tactics were fantastic. We got so much more money than we had hoped for. His whole team, including Lynda Schmidt Creative Services (stager) were amazing to work with. We can’t believe how patient the whole team was with our calls and questions, never made us feel embarrassed when we needed a bit of reassurance. Took all the trauma out of leaving our long-time family home. Thank you, Dave and Team!Linda & Gary S.
Communication, listening, and professionalism were key reasons I felt well-served by the Dave Roach Team. Dave was exceptional at selecting homes aligned with my needs and providing financial reasoning so I was quickly aware of the impact of any offers. His access to other professionals – mortgage broker, lawyer, insurance agent – were definite value-added services I did not expect. All members of the team made making Waterloo my new home seamless. I consider having this team’s support a great blessing. Their genuine concern for their client was well beyond any services I have received as a newcomer to any area. I am forever grateful!Marilyn C.
We ran into complications at closing. Dave stuck with us and worked with the lawyers until it was resolved. He did this while out of the country on vacation. Dave is always accessible by phone or email.Steve & Dajana G.
I have never seen a team working like this one. They are very professional, very fast in answers, very synchronized, very determined and motivated! They really work like a team and we were very happy and fortunate to have them on our side. They act so professional and they are so nice and polite. They are a huge asset to the real estate industry in our city. Thank you, Dave Roach Team!Adrian & Constanta
Dave, your special ways and generous work make a beautiful difference. Thank you so much for your job of selling our house. We appreciate it.Greg & Grace
Dave and his team have done a wonderful job. He helped me to buy my first house in Waterloo, and I came back to him recently to buy another two properties in Kitchener. I would not hesitate to ask Dave for help next time, and highly recommend his team to my friends and colleaguesHelen C.
Dave worked with us both as a professional and a friend. Relationship is everything and Dave and his team excelled at the relational. Thoroughly pleased also with the professionalism in the work he did to help us purchase a house at a price point that was amazing. Job well done in every way!George & Jan R.
The team was able to assemble offers, appointment times and responses quickly – they got me into a competitive market! Without Ceara’s quick work I may have missed the mark. Great job! Excellent customer service and great work.Madelon H.
We are very pleased with Dave and team. They are always available. They provide advice and suggestions based on research and our best interests. They listen and understand our needs. They provide many assistance and useful information before and after our purchase. They go above and beyond to help us in every way. We are truly blessed to have Dave as our agent. Thanks, Dave and team!Helen & Richard
Dave was very professional, personable, approachable, and patient! We were very pleased with the entire team. We have referred Dave to several neighbors who will be moving soon. Thank you and keep up the good work!Shawn & Janice P.
We have used Dave in the past for 2 sales & 2 purchases. I think this speaks for itself! The owner of the property insisted (she is now deceased), on having Dave as her Realtor. We feel Dave is one of a kind.This gives me an opportunity to express Vie’s and my great appreciation and thanks to you and your team. You opened my eyes to the benefits which a thorough professional, skilful and honest realtor brings to an ordinary citizen who wishes to buy and/or sell a house. Dave, I found you to be a man of integrity, knowledgeable and thoughtful I appreciated your wise counsel throughout the entire process. Vie and I thought you represented our interests well, that you were “our” agent and we trusted you explicitly. I would like our friends to have the opportunity of having you represent them for their realty needs and have already spoken to our staff here of the breath of your service.Nuke S.
Super dedicated – took us house-hunting in the middle of the “Great Storm” of December 2016! Thank you, Dave!Hari & Wendy S.
Dave met all his commitments in a pleasant manner. The staging advice from their partners was excellent!Rose Marie
Dave met with us right away upon learning of our desire to purchase an investment home. He often kept in touch by email, keeping us updated every step of the way. Thank you, Dave!Barbara, Tom, & Mark M.
They were sensitive to my unique situation and they gave helpful information that helped me in decision-making. I felt treated with respect and professionalism. They surpassed my expectations.Florence J.
Great job, Dave! You explained the process, answered questions thoughtfully and thoroughly, checked in (I person!) all along the way to make sure we were informed and valued as clients. You are very knowledgeable, friendly, and understanding. If we have future homes to sell, you’d be our go-to guy!Greg & Ronda
Thank you for all your excellent work and dedication toward our successful closing. Dave – you are an excellent negotiator, and Ceara – you are very pleasant and easy to work with. You both are hardworking, knowledgeable, and just very good people. You always carry a positive energy and smile. You always replied on time and tried to accommodate our needs first. We are very happy with the house and proud to own it.Ed & Irene
You gave us all the support during a stressful situation. Thank you, Dave!Marco & Anisa
We could not be more pleased with the service. The team well informed us of the open houses/responses, etc. Dave was excellent in all aspects of the listing and selling of our home. He was also very understanding and helpful on selling our home, understanding our feelings about leaving a home of over 30 years.Liz & Jack M.
We recently sold our house with the help of Dave and his team. After an unsuccessful listing with another realtor, we were contacted by Dave to see if there was anything he could do to help. It turns out there was a lot he was able to do. Dave brought in his expert team, which included a professional home stager, photographer, and truly amazing office staff to put together a brand new and very professional listing. He provided a clear schedule and detailed plan for how he was going to show and ultimately sell our house. Dave scheduled more open houses in the first couple of weeks of our listing than we had in 90 days with our previous realtor. At one point he even offered to come and take my dog for a walk, so that the house would be empty for a showing. Dave also went the extra mile while working with our purchasing realtor. They worked together to try and negotiate a better purchase price on our new house. He also put us in contact with a mortgage broker to try to arrange a better financing deal as well. Dave’s office administrator, Katherine Sweet, did an excellent job of organizing all of the showings and open houses despite my busy schedule and my wife’s night shift job. She also did an outstanding job of co-ordinating all of the paperwork from the lawyers, bank, insurance, purchaser, etc. so that I was able to have one point of contact for the entire sale. She handled everything in a very timely and efficient manner, and followed up on absolutely every detail, which made our sale a lot less stressful. Ultimately Dave and his team have shown me that all realtors are not created equal. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dave and his team for anyone looking to sell their house.Jason M.
We have used Dave in the past for 2 sales & 2 purchases. I think this speaks for itself! The owner of the property insisted (she is now deceased), on having Dave as her Realtor. We feel Dave is one of a kind.Dorothy, Power of Attorney for the owner, and past client

Thanks for all your help. You really came through for us! I wasn’t even going to look at that house but sure am happy you put it on the list anyways cause I fell in love with it as soon as I walked in.Amy D.
The Dave Roach Team clearly outlined what they would do and how it would be done. Very well organized and the property sold quickly as a result. A very professional team and very knowledgeable.J. Jackson
I was very impressed with your team’s marketing of my home. The level of service you offered in helping me get my home ready to sell was fantastic. Your stager offered extraordinary suggestions that were very helpful and the professional photography was exceptional. It all came together when we received 3 offers within 24 hours of listing the home. Your negotiations on my behalf were incredible and you obtained a selling price that was amazing. I am extremely happy with the job you did and will recommend you whenever I can.Linda R.
Thank you for all of your efforts on helping us to sell our home. We appreciated the excellent market information and analysis which you provided over these past few years, and then the professional assistance you and your team provided in marketing our house and then in negotiations to close the deal.Ed & Lynn J.
“Dave worked with us on the sale of our house in Kitchener and the purchase of a house in Kincardine. He came to us completely prepared with information regarding the sale of other properties in the area and a recommended asking price for our house. He got us top dollar and negotiated a great price on the purchase of our new house. He knows his job inside and out and is an expert in real estate matters. He is also very patient and takes time to access all situations. He never rushes you and even being as busy as he is, he is always available. He doesn’t just disappear after the completion of business, he always keeps in touch and you feel as if you could call on him at any time for advice regarding real estate matters.Allison W.
The Dave Roach Team was very responsive; they paid great attention to detail, and went the extra mile to market my property. Free home-staging, pre-sale home inspection – above and beyond industry general practice. Excellent!Moyin A.
The Dave Roach Team explained the sales process in detail, and then followed these details- there were no surprises. Professionalism!Rick & Deb J.
Dave treated us like he was selling a million dollar home with a stager and all the other resources available to us.Ross & Wiarda
Jim & I thank you so much for your help and advice at one of the most traumatic times of our married lives together. We are so happy in our new home and appreciate your patience. Your referral for a mover, Evergreen, was excellent; a very good experience.
Here’s to a great friendship.
Finding and buying a house is not an easy process. However, the experiences that we had with Dave and his team are extremely positive. He and his team are amazing. They were knowledgeable and resourceful, thoughtful and helpful, integrated and efficient. They understand and respect. From them, we can see what is professional. We would like to work with them again.Pengfei & Cathy
Dave has his clients’ interest at heart, I think he’s at the top of his game!Kay V.
It has been great working with you and your team. I think you have a well run business, and we were happy to have you as our realtor. I won’t hesitate at all to recommend you if I hear of someone moving. You have the whole package going for you, and it works out very well. We wish you and your team all the best.Colleen & Dan M.
Even though we have the final hurdle (House Inspection) and some remaining details to go, I can’t help being overwhelmed with a sense of pride and accomplishment. With cap-in-hand, our thanks to you both for this, your perseverance on our behalf, got us through the “emotional rollercoaster” this week has been, buying a house is more stressful then we thought and we couldn’t imagine doing it without such seasoned professionals in our corner!Tim & Jaime G.
Thank you for the birthday brunch. I went with my family on the weekend and we all really enjoyed it!Rosemary G.
