We would highly recommend to any purchaser to work with Dave as we were so pleased with his professionalism and his integrity.
Ken LaForge - Purchased ocean block condo
Dave Whittington was an excellent purchasing agent for our family. Dave assisted us as we passively reviewed vacation properties from out-of-town for over a year.

We are pleased to be able to recommend Dave to anyone purchasing real estate at the MD or DE shore.
Joel & Erica - Purchased oceanfront condo
Dave Whittington came highly recommended from a friend and after working with Dave we can definitely see why. Dave represented us as we were looking for a second home in North Ocean City. His knowledge of the Ocean City area was extensive and his experience in the field was hugely helpful as we tried to navigate the market conditions. We were looking for our home during a period of time where places were selling very quickly and, Dave’s responsiveness and attention to detail absolutely helped us in securing our second home. Dave was attentive but, not overbearing and my husband and I really appreciated his straight forward approach. Rather than being a pushy sales person, Dave felt more like a friend who was there to help us through this process. There are only positive things to say about Dave, his professionalism, his knowledge and his character. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a Realtor to reach out to Dave, you will not be disappointed

I do not believe that it is possible to find an agent that is better than Dave in any aspect of a real estate purchase. He took so good care of us that you would think he was a member of our family.

We are so lucky to have found him.

Dave was great to deal with. Made the entire process simple and easy. Answered all questioned and took care of things for me to eliminate some paper work on my end. PERFECT transaction!!!!
Lynne W. Purchased Ocean City 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.

Mark Raidt - Purchased Ocean City waterfront home
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.

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!!

Laura Frankfurt
This is our second experience working with Dave and again, he exceeded our expectations. He knows the OC area and market better than anyone. 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.

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 Ocean City condo
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. - Bought Ocean City townhome
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 Bayfront condo
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.
Joe Nosari - Bought condo in oceanfront building
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 Ocean City Oceanblock townhome
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 Oceanfront 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.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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jerry Collier - Purchased Ocean City oceanfront townhouse
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.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.
Joyce Ulrich - Purchased Oceanfront condo
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. When I decided to move forward I contacted Dave and he was very responsive, knowledgeable and accommodating. He always went over and above the call of duty to help us. 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 condo in oceanfront building
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.

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.

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.

Dave has a wealth of local knowledge. He was patient with us and answered all of our questions accurately and quickly. As we were out-of-towners Dave was able to assist us not only in finding a home, but help with the entire process. Dave made time for us on weekends and nights and made great use of electronic technology to speed up the process and get us relevant information quickly.We would certainly work with Dave again should we need professional real estate guidance in the future.

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.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!!!!
