David Rudd
Keller Williams
About David

I was raised in the Mid-West and carry those values of hard work and doing right by people in everything I do. In 2018 I was awarded #7 in the nation by Zillow for best customer service by Zillow users (#1 in California) because of my dedication to clients. We start by not telling you what your home is worth, but by listening to your goals, if selling your home for the most money is on top, we have a proven strategy on identifying Intelligent Fix-Ups™ to quickly and affordably increase the value of your home. I invest in your home with staging, included when I list your home. Study after study shows professional staging increases the value of your home (3-8%) and sells your home 35% faster, yet most agents either don't do it or tell the home seller to pay for it, again I include staging. I treat your home as though it was my own. I would love to show you our marketing plan, developed and implemented by my Director of Marketing who has an MBA in marketing from the University of California, Irvine. I am always no pressure and happy to answer all questions.
