"David is a true professional who cares about his clients. His background and knowledge is amazing in that he not only understands the real estate market, but his engineering background allows him to explain specifics regarding home structure, etc. Our experience with David was hands-down the best we ever had with a real estate professional. It was evident that he took time to prepare in advance for our showings based on our input. We did finally find the perfect home in a matter of a day and his communication and follow-up was just outstanding. Every question and concern we had was addressed.

Chip and Sabra Permar
"David Simon, complemented by his wife Beth, is at the top in representing Smith Mountain Lake real estate professionals. We had a very unique, niche waterfront property that on balance was a difficult "sell" under any market conditions except to a very narrow customer base. David was able to

"David, Cliff & I wanted to let you know that you restored our faith in Real Estate Agents! You were very thorough and looked out for your clients as well as both of us. The colorful package that you put together on the house was great! The big bonus for us was the fact that you copied the current Survey and the original Septic Permit and had that as part of your presentation. This was a huge help to us, because we needed this information to obtain the Rental Permit through Bedford County. It was an absolute pleasure working with you, and I will not hesitate to contact you again when I am ready to place our house on the market. Thank you again for your professionalism and going above and beyond the job requirements to help us purchase the Lake House and move furniture! I’m sure we will be seeing you over the summer!"
Cliff and Mindy Sexton
"We appreciate the hard work and diligent effort David put forth in the sale of our Smith Mountain Lake home. In addition to the dead real estate market at the time we were selling, the final dock inspection had never been applied for when built. David spent an enormous amount of time convincing the county to resurrect the old building permit in order to get our final certificate of occupancy approved. If we are ever in the market to buy another lake property, we will not hesitate to call David again."
Bruce and Debbie Banning
"First impression, Wow, available on Sunday to meet and acquire addresses and a better perspective of SML. So accommodating, willing to work at our convenience. A no pressure attitude and an email was sent weekly to view properties at our leisure. David's efficiencies were above any other realtors. No questions were left unanswered! If he didn't know the answer, a phone call or email was sent ASAP. We have never had a more concerned or attentive realtor. Our experiences have been vast, considering we have bought and sold many homes in our past. Professionalism was demonstrated in an almost pampering manner. From the start to even beyond the purchase, arranging and meeting with lawyers and county officials was above and beyond anything we expected. Thank you so much!"
Larry and Debbie Kirk
"David Simon was able to sell our lake home in the bleak 2007 real estate market. Not only was that a tough year for home sales around the lake, but our property had been on the market for a long time prior to listing it with David. When we switched to David, we noticed traffic/activity on the house pick up. While many other buyer agents showed the property, David was the one that identified a buyer through his marketing efforts. As a sales person myself, I was very impressed with David's integrity and the way he retained control of the sale for both parties while continuing to represent our interests as the sellers. He kept us abreast of the transactions, helped meet inspectors and contractors when we could not be around, and did a thorough job following through with the sale. In the end, it was a true win/win for all involved. We easily recommend David Simon as a fine and responsible Smith Mountain Realtor."
David and Terri Shea
"I am writing to provide a testimonial regarding the services that David Simon provided to two of my clients. The clients were eager to sell property they owned jointly at Smith Mountain Lake. I recommended that they approach David Simon because of his expertise in Smith Mountain properties. The clients met with David, were impressed by him, and signed a contract engaging his services. Although the market environment was difficult, David successfully obtained a sales contract within a short period of time at an attractive price. My clients were very satisfied with David's services, and I would be glad to recommend him again."

“The sale of our property at Smith Mountain Lake was facilitate by David Simon's professionalism. He spent an inordinate amount of time with us on each offer and counter offer. After selling the property he even personally helped us move some personal/houshold items we wanted to keep. David is so easy to work with. His sincerity, his compassion and understanding nature, his knowledge of the area, and his growing expertise makes him a proficient agent---whether buying or selling.”
Max and Ann Howard
"Our recent purchase of property at Smith Mountain Lake was a complete surprise. One Saturday morning we were out for a walk at the lake and saw a brand new 'For Sale' sign on a gorgeous lot. We were smitten. By Monday evening we were in frantic long-distance negotiations with the seller and several other potential buyers. Fortunately for us, David Simon was the seller's agent. While staying meticulously true to his obligations to the seller, David answered all of our questions and helped us through the process to a successful conclusion for both parties. Our first experience with David revealed his integrity and professionalism; since then we've become friends and he's even helping us look for more great properties at the lake."
Carter and Gail Hoerr
“David is a determined and enthusiastic Realtor with a concern for his client's satisfaction. When I decided to sell my lake home, I decided to contract with David to handle the transaction. Throughout the process, I appreciated David's openness and the sense of partnership that he brought to the table. David is a great listener and a quick reader of situations. In addition, David met my goals from a price and timing perspective. David even assisted my son in moving several large pieces of furniture out of the home. After selling my home, I decided to purchase a condominium and I asked David to represent my interests in that transaction. David did a great job assisting me in the negotiation. When things became difficult, his patience and calm demeanor were very helpful to me and it helped me re-assess my position. I look forward to our continued relationship”
