Dave is extremely professional and patient! He was always willing to go the extra mile. I found the perfect home thanks to his help and expertise. Very knowledgeable and took time to show me the surrounding area. He provided information that was specific to me in my client packet that proved useful during the search and after the move. He has integrity and consistently shows it in his work, which is a rare find these days. I could not be happier with his business and will be sure to refer him to friends and colleagues! Will definitely use him again for the purchase of my next home!
Dave is a well seasoned realtor, one that goes the extra mile to help you sell your home. Dave provides good advice along the way, from fixing up details to make your home competitive, to managing potential buyers. Dave has been our family realtor for over 15 years, and I strongly recommend him.
Dave was fantastic in helping us sell our home. Very professional and thorough. Always willing to take the time to explain things. Helped put together a great listing and getting the highest price possible. Very good negotiator. I thoroughly recommend him!
Dave Maks will take as long as you need to find you the "right" house. I have purchased and sold two homes with Dave and he has been exceptional. Dave is extremely knowledgeable of the Tampa area and creates a non-pressure fun approach to buying/selling your next home. Dave is also doing a wonderful job of property managing a current home I own (no hassles!)
Dave has been handling our rental property for 5 years. Screening and securing the best tenants and making sure the rents are fair and correct. He is always sending us updates on market changes and his advice has been invaluable. We will be selling our home soon and would think of no one else to sell our home as well as find us our new one.
The overall support and guidance received from Dave throughout the home buying process was top notch. His general real estate knowledge and knowledge of Tampa Bay was very helpful throughout the process. He was very patient and is willing to proceed at the buyers desired pace (I went through several rounds of being fully active in my search and not being as active). Dave was always available and responsive throughout the process, and if he did not have an answer he was diligent in performing the necessary follow-up to obtain a thorough answer. Furthermore, Dave has been helpful after the closing of my home as I have unfortunately had to deal with some early issues. I highly recommend using Dave as your real estate professional.
David has handled 3 separate transactions for me over the last 20 years or so. He sold the first home my former wife and I owned when we needed to expand, found us our larger home and then found my current home after we divorced. 3 very different transactions with different needs and motivations. His level of service. his market knowledge and his negotiation skills are superb! As a 25 year veteran in the commercial real estate business, I think I am a pretty good judge! Despite my own skillset I would never approach a residential transaction without David's guidance. David isn't just my Realtor. He's my friend! Something that I have in common with a number of David's other clients. He's just that kind of guy.
Bottom line up front. Dave Maks is an AMAZING agent who goes way above and beyond for his clients. I bought my very first house off of Dave. The house was new construction and the builder did not finish on time. My wife and I were booted out of our apartment and we were having trouble finding a place to stay. Dave put us up in his family's house for over a week. Are you kidding me?? What agents do that? As you can tell, Dave really cares about other people. His skills and service are top notch. As a first time home purchaser, I had a lot of questions and was pretty high maintenance. Dave was incredibly patient and really made the process enjoyable. He isn't looking for a quick sale, but wants what is best for his clients. As an agent now, Dave is the golden standard for providing the best customer service. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!
All I can say about Dave Maks is… WOW.
As a first time home buyer, my wife and I had no idea what we were doing. None. It was a little scary at first, looking at houses, getting approved for a mortgage, getting insurance, etc.. but Dave was there every step of the way helping us buy the perfect house.
He knows so much about the Tampa Bay area real estate, it’s seriously amazing. He is a great negotiator and has a detailed eye for looking at houses. Without him, we would have never caught the extensive wood rot on the outside of our new house and we would of had to pay for it ourselves, but Dave got the seller to fix it all.
We also would not have thought to have the seller pay for a home warranty… but Dave did.
He is also very quick to respond to emails, texts and he always prompt at answering/returning phone calls.
For anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Tampa bay area, trust Dave! When it comes to inspections, repairs, mortgage, etc… he has a network of talented and trustworthy people… you will not be disappointed.
THANK YOU DAVE! YOU ARE THE BEST! A+++ REALTOR.

My wife and I purchased a home in TN. We interviewed several agents to sell our FL. home who best fit our needs. A very close friend recommended Dave Maks. To make a long story short, Dave did everything he said he would and more! Sold our house in a very timely manner, kept us informed UP TO THE MINUTE, priced our home and got the price he said. Dave is one of the most professional people I have ever met. He is caring, compassionate and now considered a close family friend. We highly recommend Dave Maks for any of your real estate needs. You cannot go wrong when you use the BEST.
I have worked with Dave for over 12 years since I purchased my first house in Tampa. Through out the last decade, Dave has been a trusted advisor from finding new tenants to referring local tradesman; always delivers above and beyond expectations. He is definately the subject matter expert when comes to the Tampa real estate market and I would not hesitate to recommand Dave.
Dave did an amazing job in helping me sell my home. Always very professional, Dave gave my home his complete devotion going over and above what agents typically do. He took the time to explain about market conditions and trends in an understandable way that helped us set an asking price and put together an enticing listing which got the highest price possible and set a new benchmark for my neighborhood. He was a great negotiator and stayed very involved through the entire process anticipating and avoiding any potential issues and helping me close ontime without a hitch. I give Dave the highest marks. I would use his servicing again in the future, and wholeheartly endorse him to other potential sellers!
Dave was amazing in his approach to marketing and pricing our house which resulted in a sale in less than 30 days. I highly recommend Dave Maks and his services.
My decision to sell and move back to Nashville had been a consideration for the past year, but when I suddenly found a home there things moved fast. Dave listened to all the requests I wanted with selling and did all that he could to accommodate me. He provided a realistic overview of the market and what I needed to do to get my house ready. His use of professional photographer, video and classy brochures showed my home to its best advantage. He was in contact with me daily; sometimes two and three times a day to keep me updated. With his networking, I had the first showing within 3 hours of listing on MLS. Open House was two days later and people were lined up waiting to see it. My home sold immediately with a cash offer over list price! I have told all of my friends and neighbors to ask Dave to help when they decide to sell or buy. If I sell in Nashville, I will be sorry the Dave Maks is not in TN.
Dave was not only very helpful in aiding us (a young couple) in our first home purchase, but made sure to stay on top of each step of the process. When it came time to price negotiation, he was able to get us a deal that was fair for both parties and made us very happy. 100% would recommend.
I highly recommend Dave as a realtor for anyone, especially if you have a family with small children. We moved from Ohio to Florida and Dave was amazing. He helped us through the entire process of finding a home, viewing well over 50 homes, while we brought along my daughter and nephew. He not only dealt with my parents, but myself and other family members who all tagged along in the process. Dave was wonderful with the kids and included them throughout the whole thing. If you are looking for a realtor not only with knowledge, but personality and patients as, well, Dave is definitely the realtor to use.
We sincerely cannot thank you enough for all your help over the years buying and selling our first starter home, then helping us buy our beautiful family home. It has been an adventurous 5 years and a lot of it was thanks to you. Your integrity, expertise and kindness is unmatched. Thank you for the beautiful and very generous gifts we will cherish for many years. I think our baby girl loves the rocking chairs even more than we do.
We will certainly keep spreading the word to our friends and colleagues as they start to look for new homes that you are and will likely always be our favorite guy! (Because, let's face it, your much, much more than a realtor) and we don't plan on leaving FL anytime soon.

Dave Maks continues to amaze with his vast knowledge of real estate transactions and his keen ability to negotiate. This is our second time using his services and we're thoroughly convinced that he is bar-none the most competent and professional realtor. Dave gave us excellent guidance, unflagging availability and deep knowledge about the homes that we looked at. Buying a home in this market is challenging, but working with Dave Maks made it as painless and as straightforward as possible, we couldn't have been more satisfied with the home buying process. We hope we're in our new home for a long time, but if we're to move, we wouldn't hesitate to use Dave Maks. He has nothing but our highest recommendation!
