Dave Whittington was recommended to us by several friends. We found him to be honest in his evaluation of our property and what we could reasonably expect to receive for it in the current slow market conditions. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about Ocean City properties. He sold our property in approximately 45 days.
Ron and Connie Tobias - Sold a 1 bedroom Ocean City condo
We would highly recommend Dave for any Ocean City real estate transaction.
Consistent , reliable, well informed..very helpful with all selling needs David was a pleasure to work with...a real professional. The market fluctuated throughout the selling period and the price was changed a couple of times. The transaction went smoothly. Both parties Were happy with the end result, I believe.

"I would recommend Dave to any person looking to purchase real estate in Ocean City. He is very knowledgable and he made the process of buying a home an enjoyable experience.
Jimmy K. - Purchased an Ocean City waterfront single-family home
I would probably need three pages of text to express how much we appreciated all the time he took to walk us through the process, to show us homes, to explain in detail what to expect so there were never any surprises. Dave was diligent about his communication with us because as you know, home buyers can have multiple questions throughout the process. He was professional, courteous, and kind.
I've very grateful for Dave. Thank you Dave!!!!"
I never do references, but this is the exception because Dave was EXCEPTIONAL. From our first contact, he was prompt in his reply, easy to work with, totally knowledgeable and the most patient person on earth. He showed us many properties till we fine tuned what we were looking for and he found it for us! I will totally recommend Dave to my friends and family when they, too, are in the hunt. Thanks again Dave.
Gold family - Purchased a Sea Watch condo
Right from the start we could tell that Dave was very knowledgeable about the area. He asked us good questions so that he could provide us with homes we would be interested in - rather then trying to sell us on homes that did not fit. He showed us places and discussed the pros and cons or each. We then found what become an investment opportunity and Dave was good at helping us negotiate the right price to buy the property. dave has also been great at managing with us the process for buying this property. Buying this property was not easy since there were many other aspects that do not come up in a normal sale - but Dave was there to keep everything moving along. I would highly recommend Dave Whittington. We plan to keep using him as we look for more investment properties and our own property in the MD/DE area.

Purchased an Ocean City condo
In November 2012 we purchased a vacation home in Ocean City Md. using David Whittington as our real estate agent. The experience was a good one because of Dave. He was very patient with us since we were unsure of the location of where we wanted to purchase, whether it was on the bay side or the ocean side. We looked for approximately 3 months. David was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us make our decision and kept telling us it is a process and it may take a bit of time. He was very accommodating with us also, I would call him sometimes the night before and ask if he had time to see us, and he always made the time to do so, he was flexible with our schedules. He made us feel comfortable and not intimidated with the search for a vacation home. We asked many questions pertaining to ownership of a condo, and he would almost always have the answers and if not he would get the information that we requested, in a timely manner. When it came time to make an offer he was right on it! We made an offer an within a very short time he was able to follow up with counter offers. It was a bit of an ongoing process, but made easier with David and his professionalism and a positive attitude. I feel confident in recommending David with his sales skills and overall knowledge of the real estate market in Ocean City Md., we were very pleased with his abilities to close the sale.
Kim & Andy Langley - Purchased a bayfront condo

Sciamanna family - Purchased a Plaza condo

Alisha Carpenter - Bought waterfront single-family home in West Ocean City
I am really glad I chose Dave to sell our condominium. He was professional, helpful, courteous, and extremely efficient. Our condo sold quickly during the holiday season which is usually considered a slow time for sales. He helped my mom (who is 89 years old and does not own a computer) through every step in the process and she also was very pleased with the entire experience. I highly recommend Dave to anyone who is looking to sell property in Ocean City.
We found Dave inadvertently after requesting information about a property we saw on the internet. We asked him to represent us as buyers. Dave was quick to respond and very knowledgeable. He successfully walked us through the purchase of our first vacation property which happened to have multiple offers. Dave assisted us with locating a mortgage company, home inspector, insurance companies and even contractors to do improvements once the sale closed. Purchasing a home is difficult, but even more so long distance and with competitors. Dave was diligent in all the details from paperwork to walk-through to closing which helped us tremendously as we live 3 hours from Ocean City. We are truly grateful for his professionalism and dedication to getting the job done. THANK YOU!

Dave made the process easy for me as I am an out of town buyer. Thanks Dave.
Ken G. - Bought & sold an Ocean City condo
David Whittington was very knowledgeable and professional. Being a remote seller, I relied on David to coordinate listing, viewing and settlement activities without me being on site.

I would recommend David to any seller (or Buyer) in the OC area.

My family sold a home in a difficult market and we are convinced David did everything possible to get the best price, quickly.

We cannot imagine there is another realtor in Ocean City who could have done any more to facilitate the sale of our house.

Ken Gizinski - Bought an Ocean City condo
This was the easiest real estate transaction I have ever had. Dave utilized all of the newest technology to get my information out there. He took my calls even when he was out of the country on vacation. I recently gave him a referral for another listing. After looking at the property and its location, he elected to turn it over to another agent in his office because they were more qualified to help sell it (he did not service that area). I will continue to use and refer him in the future.
K. Laue - Sold an oceanside condo
We went with Dave because for several years he kept us apprised of the market until we were ready to sell. When that time came, he provided expert advice on the market, on negotiations and on all the steps necessary to get to closing. We would recommend Dave very highly.

Frank L. - Ocean City condos
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Dave Whittington to purchase a condo in Ocean City. His knowledge of the area, immediate responses and coordination with the selling agent and lender were impressive to say the least! Dave made himself available on short notice every time we wanted to look at a property (even on the Fourth of July). When we found the right property he referred lenders and insurance agents that were as equally wonderful to deal with. It is a rarity to find a professional who takes such pride in his work and goes above and beyond even after closing. Dave Whittington is an A+ realtor!!
Shelia - Bought oceanblock condo
"Dave was very easy going and great to work with. He is knowledgeable of the Ocean City marketplace and he kept me updated throughout the process. I would recommend him to others and have done so. I also enjoyed reading his monthly newsletters."
Melissa Hoover - Sold a 2 bedroom ocean block condo
As a first-time investor in Ocean City looking for a Buyer's Agent, Dave's property and process knowledge were critical in narrowing my search and improving my understanding of the rental business there. He demonstrated the ability to provide a line item view of the fees associated with renting a property; saving me hours of looking at properties that could never satisfy my criteria. Then he looked for properties that would work. Select Dave and get piece of mind.
Gary & Dana - Ocean City
We have been thinking about purchasing a property in Ocean City, Maryland for several years, but waited until February 2012 to start to look. (Yes, a year ago!) Before we set up an appointment with Dave, we explained that we were just looking.
Joyce Ulrich - Purchased a Plaza condo
Dave met with us and showed us different types of properties, and spent time explaining some of the ins and outs of the OC market. He was very accommodating, and put us on his property email list for our future reference. I watched listings for 10 months, and in December, found a short sale that looked interesting. I could not get down to OC to tour myself, so Dave went and did a "video" and placed it on YouTube.
We placed an offer. Dave handled all of the details, explained each and every step along the way, and monitored the process to make sure it was moving along. A few times, he uncovered roadblocks by the bank, and got things moving again.
We went to settlement in record time, and the day before settlement, Dave did the final walkthrough and discovered the owners had removed items that were supposed to stay in this "fully furnished" unit. We were both shocked by this extremely rare behavior, and the listing agent was dumbfounded. The owners were not responsive to requests to return the items, and given it was a short sale, the Bank was not willing to make any concessions in price. Dave negotiated renumeration for us to replace the items that had been taken, and we were able to settle on schedule.
Dave knows OC and he certainly is experienced with short sales. This was an overall great experience. We have purchased 4 other homes over the years, and thanks to Dave's efforts, this was one of the best. Without his guidance, I doubt that we would have found this unit, or been willing to try a short sale, or even have settled.
I recommend Dave to anyone who wants to find the perfect property in Ocean City, Md."
Dave Whittington is a true professional! We used Dave to help us purchase a condo in Ocean City, MD. I stumbled across his website www.BeachResortRealEstate.com a few years back and continued to use it to search real estate.

He has alot of local contacts which made our buying experience very smooth. Dave was a great choice for us and we highly recommend him. Thanks Dave!
Woolford Family - Bought a Capri condo
We first met Dave when we purchase a home in 2009 and decided to go right back to him in 2017 when we decided to sell. Dave took the time to survey our house and prepare the listing, got our house listed quickly, and as a result, we had a signed contract by the evening on day one of the listing! From that point on, Dave was with us all the way making it a smooth transition to final settlement. His experience, responsiveness, and his overall knowledge of how to make our sale a success was a great help to us, and we are grateful for his dedication from start to finish. His approach of using a professional photographer and unique marketing techniques are just some of the outstanding services that Dave and his company provide. We would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Maryland Delaware beach resort area.
Walt Schleicher - Sold Ocean Pines home
"I have been talking about a beach house for years. I feel very fortunate to have Dave as my realtor, this process is stressful enough and to have a very knowledgeable,skilled and truthful realtor on my side when I'm 4 hours away made this almost too easy..I owe Dave a big thanks for dealing with all the showings on short notice. If you are looking for a house have Dave set you up on the automatic email MLS search with what you are looking for and have your phone ready. Thanks Again for dealing with me I love my house !!!!!!"
Jim Wilson - Purchased a single-family home in Ocean City, MD
Dave came highly recommended from an agent in our area. He did a tremendous job for me. He met my needs with a variety of homes to see and was on time for each showing. Because I live out of state he checked on cable, electric, ect. for us when were weren't there. He calls you to let you know the progress of your offer and lets no stone unturned. He applies no pressure to buy a home. He is a buyers dream. He sent me the keys the day we settled priority mail so I would have them for the weekend visit. If you are looking for an agent who works for you to get the best deal and continues to work for you once you get the home of your dreams call Dave."
Donna B. - Purchased an Ocean City townhome
Dave was fabulous from start to finish. We live in Philadelphia so we relied heavily on Dave to manage the process for us. Dave was not only responsive, but took the initiative throughout the process. His work with the seller's agent and the mortgage broker was critical to keeping things on schedule. Dave is extremely knowlegable and a pleasure with which to work. He is professional and a very nice guy. I have no doubt that anyone who works with Dave will have a positive experience.
Brian & Jen -Purchased Ocean view condo
Dave knew the area very well. He helped me purchase a short sale and was great through the whole process. He explained that it might take a while to go through, it did, but he didn't stop working for me through the whole process. We continued to look for properties and he worked around my schedule to show me the properties I was interested in. Luckily the short sale came through and now I have a great property at the beach to get away to. I would definitely recommend him to someone interested in purchasing a home or condo.
Tim McDowell - Purchased an Ocean City short sale
David was very nice and responsive. He had great ideas on how to market my condo. The pictures he had taken came out great! The entire process was smooth and the follow up to messages was immediate. I would recommend David for any seller in Ocean City, Maryland.
Bob D - Sold condo
David is a wonderful, a wonderful realtor. I got to know Dave after I saw many good reviews on Zillow. From the first a few contacts when I was looking for a condo, I could sense his professionalism – he replied email/calls timely, providing tips and his rich insights about OC condominium and, most importantly, he learned your needs and respectfully helping you search around that. With Dave’s help, it did not take long before I and my wife found our condo. During the whole process toward settlement, Dave provided us guidance in every single step with great details -- from inspection, financing, insurance to even our future rental business. Dave is truly a great treasure, I just cannot say enough about him. He truly lives up to good reviews and deserves more great credits. I would rate his work as top 5+ stars. If you are going to buy any property in OC MD, do not look further, Dave is your man. I can guarantee you that you will NOT be disappointed. Dave is a wonderful individual and a true 5+ star pro-realtor.

Kelly Swift - Bought an Ocean City townhouse
After having dreadful experiences with THREE agents prior to meeting Dave, I was starting to wonder if I was on the TV show Bloopers and Practical Jokes. Nearly giving up on ever finding a competent agent I e-mailed Dave. He is the complete parallel to the previous agents. He called me a few hours later!
Looking at Ocean City condos
He returns phone calls and e-mails within 24 hours, often immediately, rearranges his schedule to accommodate showings for us, and is extremely professional. He does all of the above without pressuring us to make a purchase as well. I am not sure when we will purchase our property but I certainly know who our agent will be when the time comes.
Dave Whittington was a referral from a co-worker that purchased an Ocean City, MD property last year. Dave was always available when we called or emailed him. We trusted his expertise and knowledge about properties in Ocean City, MD because he has over 15 years experience in the business and is local to the area. He was not pushy or impatient and gave us the time to make a decision. We found a condo and we were very happy with Dave during the entire purchase/settlement process. If you want a honest, hardworking realtor call Dave!
Laura & Dan - Bought a 2br condo in Ocean City
We relied upon the ratings on Zillow when we were looking for a buyer's agent to help us find a condo at the beach in Ocean City. The top agent, based on over 25 ratings, appeared to be Dave Whittington. Are we glad to have found Dave! Quite simply, in over 30 years of working with various real estate agents on both the buying and selling sides, Dave surpasses them all in customer service, knowledge and integrity. The bottom line is that he helped find us a condo that was the perfect fit to what we were hoping for, and he helped us negotiate a price within our budget. During the process he provided accurate information that allowed us to make informed decisions about which units were priced realistically, given today's market, and he pointed out pluses and minuses of the units we saw, many of which we would not have been aware of. When asked for advice, he was direct, straightforward, and backed up his advice with examples and data that showed that he knew what he was talking about. We particularly appreciated that he never steered us towards any property, as some agents do - he truly listened to our reactions and feedback, tailored the search to what we wanted, and then he acted in our best interest. That is a rare quality these days. We can't recommend Dave highly enough - there aren't enough stars in this rating to reflect what it was like to have Dave Whittington on our side. What we found equally remarkable, apart from Dave's knowledge of Ocean City real estate, was his extraordinary customer service: answering emails within minutes, even late at night, early in the morning, and on weekends. And that was for a period of many weeks - not just one time. Dave followed up not only on things he promised to do, but also on things the agent on the other side of our transaction was doing. He even reminded us to contact Delmarva so we wouldn't be without electricity our first day in our new condo. A last comment: we had, on and off over many years, looked into buying a condo at the beach, and had brief experiences with some of the listing agents in the buildings we were interested in. They were clearly more interested in listing units than in helping us find what we were looking for. Fair enough. Not everyone wants to assist buyers. Dave Whittington is more interested in helping his clients than in anything else, and it shows. You can bet that in the future we will be sending our friends to Dave - whether they are buying our selling, we know Dave Whittington will take good care of them. So if, like us, you are looking for an agent who is knowledgeable, honest, patient, and dedicated to providing great customer service, Dave Whittington is the right agent for you. This review is our way of saying thanks to all the people who posted reviews before us, and thus steered us in the right direction. And of course, a way for us to say thanks to Dave, who deserves the recognition.
Babkes Family - Purchased a Golden Sands condo

Dave went the extra mile on day of the final walk through when it appeared the deal was going to collapse. Dave phoned me when settlement closed and I went and had a Guinness Stout to celebrate the occasion. I wish Dave, the buyers and the buyer's agent could have been with me.
R. Barley - Sold Sunset Bay condo in Ocean City
Dave did a fantastic job helping me find a place at the beach. He assisted with much more than simply finding a place. He assisted with explaining every detail through closing. Dave was always available to meet or take my calls. I have used other agents before and Dave is a true professional.
Chris D - Purchased waterfront property
Dave was very professional throughout the process of buying a condo in Ocean City Md. He knew the local market, was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. He provided a web site where I could monitor new listings as they became available in specific buildings I was interested in. He provided information and reminders after the contract was accepted to help prepare for the settlement date such as providing information on changing the utilities, phone and closing day issues. He had professional contacts on all services that were required such as settlement attorneys, insurance companies and home inspectors and provided multiple contacts to choose from. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to purchase real estate on the Eastern Shore.

Dave listened to our needs and wants objectively.

He also knows exactly when to offer advice and always complements that advice with relevant facts and data to help us make an informed decision. Dave is diligent and responsive on top of being calm and reassuring, which is the perfect combination of traits to support someone through the home-buying experience. If we ever plan to buy another home - or if we know anyone who is - our first call would be to Dave. I recommend him 100%.

Dave is A+ without any hesitation! Use him and you won't regret it.

Tamara & Al Olson
I just purchased a 6 bedroom home on 124th Street in Ocean City and working with Dave made it easy. Dave took great care in understanding my criteria, budget, timeframe; he showed me several options and was very transparent in pros/cons, and offering insight well beyond the obvious. We had some sensitive issues through closing and Dave was extremely engaged and responsive. Even post-closing, Dave continues to make himself available to me. If competence and service are important to you, Dave is your guy.
Brian Mitchell - Purchased an oceanblock townhome in Ocean City
We are extremely happy with the work Dave did for us. He used a process that created a 3d virtual tour of our condo that we have not seen used anywhere else. He used a professional photographer to showcase our property, instead of snapping pictures with his phone like most real estate agents do. It allowed prospective buyers to truly understand what the property looked like before they visited and made us stand above the crowd. In addition Dave kept us informed at all times. Communication was fantastic! We knew who was viewing our property online and in person. Our property was listed on all the top real estate web sites. After the sale he voluntarily took care of turning in the cable boxes because we were out of town. A true professional in every way shape and form
Theresa - Sold condo in Ocean City
We highly recommend Dave. His knowledge of the Ocean City market is excellent. He used the latest online tools to market our property as well as keep us informed of showings and feedback.

Dave is a professional in every sense of the word. He has many years experience that enabled him to guide and advise us as to how to price our condo in a competitive position.

Purchased an Ocean City condo
In summer 2011 I drove by a condo that was for sale and called the number to inquire about the price. During our conversation Dave agreed to meet me at the unit in 15 minutes to provide me a tour. Although the unit did not fit my needs, Dave gathered information about what I was looking for and arranged to have periodic targeted listings that met my needs sent to my e-mail. The process of receiving e-mails was extermely helpful and not intrusive at all. At no time did Dave ever try to pressure me or push a process that was unwanted.
Jerry Collier - Purchased an oceanfront townhouse in Ocean City
In fall 2012 one of the listings Dave sent was of interest to me. Dave arranged a 1/2 day tour for my wife and I of various properties that were similar to the listing. Dave's expertise and knowledge of the market was extremely high. He was able to provide detailed answers to many questions and offered very thoughtful and professional advice as to potential pluses and minus of each property. By the end of the day my wife and I found a property that we thought best fit our needs.
Dave provided an in-depth market analysis of similar properties to aid our understanding of the market. He further provided keen insight into details that would be important to the prospective negotiation that would arise from my offer.
Ultimately the seller elected to elongate the negotiation. In response Dave and I agreed to adopt a "patient" response that included seeing other properties that would be of interest should the seller elect not to move toward my offer price. This counsel was critical as it insulated me from following a natural "emotional" approach and chase my own bid. Over time the "patient" approach prevailed and my wife and I purchased the house at the price we targeted at the outset of the purchasing process.
Once the contract was signed, Dave was fully engaged to ensure closing was timely and without issue. He provided me a list of professional contacts for all elements of the close. He was attentive and checked in regularly to ensure I was on track with what I needed. All of this lead to a seemless closing.
Prior to working with Dave I had never had a truly positive experience with a real estate agent. Quite simply, an agent was just a necessary evil of a real estate transaction. After working with Dave I now know what the "gold" standard is! I can truly say, Dave's effort reduced the risk of my purchase and allowed me to bid in a manner that saved me a significant sum of money.
Dave, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dave was great to work with! Very prompt with his replies and was willing to move his schedule around to accommodate our schedule (we were out of town and looking to purchase a second home). I would highly recommend Dave if you are looking in the Ocean City area!

Mr. & Mrs. Kramer - Sold West Ocean City townhome
We worked with Dave to purchase a condo for a vacation home in Ocean City MD. Since we live in NY and it was difficult to get down to MD on a regular basis, we relied on Dave and his expertise to guide us through this purchase. I can not say enough good things about Dave and how smoothly this process went. We had many questions and were constantly locating new properties, Dave was immediate in his responses to our questions and inquiries about properties (he even called us back on a Sunday afternoon while shopping with his kids). He ultimately guided us in the best direction providing us information about specific properties and what we should expect from them in the future. He made sure we were fully informed on all aspects of each place we looked in to. I would recommend anyone work with Dave, he is not pushy and really has your best interest at heart. He is even willing to give you information on where to score a great meal.
