About Me

Hello, and thank you for your interest in my website and my business. I have been in sales since 1983 with a strong background in contract negotiation. My favorite aspect of being a realtor is helping people make their dreams come true and knowing that they have put their trust and faith in me to handle the most important transaction they will ever make.

I pride myself on being accessible to my clients. I believe it is of the utmost importance that you feel informed, up to date and confident in our business relationship. Many of my reviews from past clients (confirmed by Zillow) comment I respond  to calls, text and emails extremely fast. I run my business with efficient and effective service at all times of the day and also on weekends.

I've been fortunate through hard work and the many referrals from past clients and friends to have been an award winning realtor in San Francisco and the Peninsula for the past 25+ years.

I take personal pride in producing results and the ability to think outside the box. I would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome and I hope that we will be working together soon.

Sincerely and Respectfully,

David A. Tapper


Testimonials from my clients

    "...We interviewed several realtors from the area and you definitely stood out in terms of your experience and knowledge, especially the Hillsborough neighborhood that we eventually moved into. We are so happy with the home we purchased and could not imagine living anywhere else.

    We especially appreciate your dedication and hard work. We were most impressed with your excellent negotiation skills, securing inspections, and taking the time to go over all the details of getting us settled. You have always maintained the perfect balance of professionalism, good humor, patience, understanding and diplomacy. Most of all, your honesty and integrity gives us the trust that we are working with finest person on our side.

    Based on our experiences with all our real estate transactions, you have, by far, been the best real estate agent that we have worked with. We are so glad to have found you. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Once again, thanks for a job well done and your excellence!"

    "I just wanted to send this letter to express our extreme appreciation for David Tapper, who has just helped complete the sale of our home. We met David around six weeks ago, and signed on with him as our Real-estate agent. From the first moment of our meeting him, he started going above and beyond what we had ever thought we could expect from a Real-estate Agent. We have heard horror stories over the years about agents and the whole process of trying to sell your home. David has made the whole ordeal bearable and has done his utmost to make sure everything went as smoothly and painlessly as possible. In this case, it was abnormally difficult, as we had the additional problem of a virtually impossible lien that needed to be removed from our title before we could close. David lent us his advice, time, compassion, as well as his vast knowledge of the real-estate world. He spent untold hours on the phone calling the county offices trying to get answers for us that no one else seemed to be able to answer. Recommended lawyers we could confer with, interfaced with the Title Company on numerous occasions for us, took phone calls from us at all times of the day and night, and was even available to us on week-ends. He was always responsive, pleasant and supportive of any questions, problems, or even if we just needed some reassurance that everything was going to be all right. We absolutely could not have gotten through this without him, and again I want to say what a terrific asset he is to your company. We will in the future be recommending David to every person we come across who is looking to sell their home. If there is anything else we can do for David Tapper, please let us know, and we will immediately comply!"

    "I would like to extend my deep gratitude towards your firm for all the help and work you put towards helping us buy our first home. I would especially like to thank David Tapper, our Agent and Broker, for all the help and support he gave us throughout the entire process. I can not say enough about the quality of representation we had from David. He made himself accessible to us 24 hours a day and I could trust that anything he said he would do would get done. It was a good feeling knowing that we had someone like David working for us. We love our new home and the loan(That you recommnded) is working our perfectly. We, along with our neighbors, still find it hard to believe the great deal we got on our place. I feel lucky to have found this home and lucky to have you as our realtors. I'm sure we will do business again in the future."

    "There is an associate in your office by the name of David Tapper, who did a terrific job in helping me buy a home in San Francisco.

    He was patient with me throughout the process, explaining every step and never once pressuring me or making me feel that I "had" to make a decision. By virtue of his guidance and negotiating skills, I was able to purchase the house at what I considered to be below market. Quite a coup in this marketplace. I will certainly be passing his name along to anyone I know who is looking for a house but I also felt it was important that you know the quality of the people you have working in your office."

    Hi Tap, after completing our 6th transaction I thought it might be a good time to say "thanks".

    You obviously didn't take negotiating 101 in school, you"Taught it". I can't believe what you have accomplished for me and my family..

    When I bought my first home, you were able to get it for under market value. When we sold it a few years later, you were able to negotiate a sale for over the asking price. In the same market, you were able to get me into Burlingame and save me $35,000 plus get me a $10,000  credit for my closing costs.

    Everyone else was buying way over asking price at the time. Unbelievable. When my friends asked how you do it, the only thing I could think of is that you are FEARLESS when the deal is on the line.

    When I sold that home, you got me an additional $50k over the highest bidder. Anyone else would have told me to take the offer and be done.

    And now, you repeated the process exactly. Buying under market value & getting me a credit for my closing costs. Then selling for a profit.

    Great job Dave. Let's do it again!
