"Dave was recommended to us by a close friend of ours and we would highly recommend Dave to all of our friends.
Our entire experience with Dave was first class. He is easy to talk to, very responsive, and his access and use of technology is wonderful but there are two things we appreciated most about Dave:
1. We had not been in the real estate market for more than 20 years. Novices would be a generous description of our experience. Dave did a terrific job educating us on the process, what we needed to know, and what we were responsible for. He has shared many videos, presentations and other resources with us and hooked us up with a home inspector and a real-estate lawyer.
2. Not once did we feel pressured by Dave. We were looking in the middle of a very hot market that required buyers to be making decisions very quickly and be willing to make as "clean" an offer as possible. Dave never pushed us to make a decision. He repeatedly said this might take months and months to find the right home for us and he was genuinely comfortable with us taking our time. "

"Dave helped me with both the purchase and sale of a home and I was 100% happy with having him as my agent in both instances. He is patient, professional and unbelievably thorough - even going so far as to, on his own initiative, park outside a potential purchase to judge traffic patterns at busy times! On the sale side, he put a lot of time and effort into making my home look its best for pictures and showings and in my mind was instrumental in getting a great offer for my townhome within weeks of listing (when the market for townhouses was somewhat sluggish). I would wholeheartedly recommend Dave to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home on the North Shore."
"Dave came highly recommended by close friends who had also just gone through the process of being first time home buyers. Working with Dave to purchase my first condo was a wonderful experience, as he is an exceptional realtor and very client-focused. His professionalism, tech skills, knowledge of the market, and ability to connect with his clients is first class!
Dave was supportive through the whole process, answering my many questions, and encouraging me to wait for the 'right fit'. In a real estate market such as this one, that level of patience and client support made all the difference for my experience. Getting to know me and my interests, Dave was a great resource on which areas and properties would likely appeal to me.
We found a great condo, and Dave continued to support me through the entire process with his detailed checklists and other resources, making it a smooth sale. I have since been out enjoying all the neighbourhood has to offer - thanks to Dave!"

"After receiving proposals from several realtors, we chose Dave to list our family home because he impressed us with the research he had done and his proposal to market the house. It was a challenging project on many fronts - a falling market, a 60 year old home being sold as part of the estate of the couple who built it by their children who were raised in it, a global pandemic, and a location that turned some buyers off. Dave was hard working and patient. He explored every opportunity and angle to market the house properly and continually updated the research and provided us with the information we needed to make decisions along the way. The reasons he impressed us at the beginning stayed true throughout the listing and eventual sale."

"Suzanne and I have been friends with Dave for many years. When looking for a real estate professional to assist us with the purchase of our home, Dave was an obvious choice. We knew Dave would not only bring his knowledge and integrity to the table, but also make our best interests the priority.
We were fortunate to discover a semi off-grid property with some unique characteristics that you wouldn't encounter in a typical home purchase. Dave was able to provide us with his professional guidance while introducing us to the additional resources necessary to navigate the purchase and gain the confidence we needed to move forward.
It was a pleasure working with Dave and recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a home to get Dave working for them. They won't be disappointed."

"We met Dave in May 2019 on our 2nd day in Vancouver on a house hunting trip. We had been visiting BC for several years to see our sons who had relocated here from Ontario, and now it was time for us to move too. While we had some idea of the area of Vancouver we wanted to settle, Dave was very thoughtful in suggesting properties that met our parameters and listened to our wants, concerns and features in a home that were important to us. His knowledge of the North Vancouver market place helped focus our search. Most importantly, Dave was patient, never frustrated and always positive as we searched for 3 months before finding the best home for us. Home buying can be exciting but usually also stressful. Dave took most of the stress out and helped us throughout the process. We highly recommend Dave Maquignaz."

"Dave has been a friend of ours for many many years. We decided to use him as our realtor because we know him so well, we knew he would take excellent care of our needs. He did that and more. He would send daily updates and listings for us to look over. Any questions we had were answered quickly and with as much or more information than we requested. Dave is extremely thorough with his research, often providing information that we didn't even know we needed. We have and will continue to recommend Dave to all our friends who are looking to buy and sell. You could not ask for a more dedicated or hard working realtor!"

"As first time home buyers, looking for condos in North Vancouver was certainly a daunting task but we were lucky to find Dave to help us through the process. While most realtors that we met with came off as a bit pushy, just wanting to get the job done, we decided to work with Dave as it was obvious he had a different approach. He took the time to sit down with us and not only ask what we were looking for but ultimately help us better understand what was important.
Every time we met with him it was obvious how prepared he was, talking us through his research on available properties, trends with pricing or pointing out the little details to pay attention to. He was always available to talk and answer questions, and it felt like we were an important focus for him, even when balancing his time with other clients.
When it came time to make an offer and negotiate he did a great job balancing our stressed concerns while diligently following up with the selling agent. Finally, once we successfully purchased our condo, we were impressed with how helpful Dave was with walking us through every step down to showing up with different checklists so we didn't miss anything.
We feel very lucky to have Dave by our side throughout this process and have since recommended him to friends."
