"Dave is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I can't imagine our home buying experience without him. My husband and I bought our first home through him and he explained every step along the way what was happening and made the process stress-free. He was always in contact with us and was easy to get a hold of. He is very trustworthy and a man of his word. I would recommend him to everyone looking for a realtor. If we ever sell our house or are looking for a new one, he will be who we go to again every time."

Dave helped me buy a home

"My wife and I were extremely pleased with the service and attention to detail in the selling of our 5 acres of land in Olympia. We were more than satisfied with the progress of reaching an agreement with the buyer and closing the deal. What was particularly important to us was Dave's tenacious follow up through out the process to keep us periodically informed and make it all happen. Our particular property had wetlands involved (not an issue when we bought it 40 years ago), so for Dave it wasn't just selling a piece of property. His committed involvement to insure the buyer and seller were both satisfied was a perfect example of taking the extra mile of effort. Dave's knowledge, fairness, frankness, honesty, and friendship was and will always be most greatly appreciated. My wife and I wish we had a "Dave Carney" in California for several properties we hope to sell in the close foreseeable future. "

Zillow Review:


Dave recently sold a home in our neighborhood fairly quickly and for a high price. We interviewed him and were immediately impressed with his professionalism and respect for our home and our time. We found him to be very thorough and detail oriented. He took care of all the details in the  background and let us know any time something was required of us. He provided recommendations for local service providers, that we were also pleased with. Dave handled all situations with integrity, especially contract negotiations. Dave sold our home within a week, for asking price, which was top dollar in our neighborhood. We highly recommend him!

Zillow review:

First and foremost, Dave has been a blessing to our family! I liked that he tried to get to know about our family first to ensure he found a home which fit our needs. He puts in effort to know about the different pros and cons of neighborhoods and he isn't someone who is just about selling. Dave  takes resale value of a home (safety, home layout, location, etc) into consideration when finding a home in case you want to sell it in the future. Whenever questions pop up, he is always there to answer them quickly and in detail. He was able to get our offer in the second day the home was on the market. With how the market is right now, he's definitely the guy who can make things happen immediately. We are extremely grateful Dave was our realtor through this whole process. We will be using him again in the future and I highly recommend you use him too. Thanks Dave!

Yelp Review:


Dave helped us both buy and sell homes. In finding a home to buy Dave was patient (we were fairly picky), persistent, honest and attentive to our wishes. He/we prevailed and we are as pleased as can be with our home purchase.  In selling our former home he was all of the above plus kept an eye on our vacant house and was mindful and friendly to the neighbors. 
We would call him again and recommend him highly!

Yelp Review:


Dave is the man! Professional, patient and definitely went above and beyond to find the right house for me! Dave had contacts everywhere and showed me a ton of homes that were awesome! Everything went off without a hitch when I decided on the home I wanted. I will be doing some improvements and selling this home in a few years and will have Dave handle everything!!! You cannot go wrong with Dave as your realtor!

Yelp review:

Dave couldn't have made the home buying process any easier and stress free! He listened to all of our needs and wants in a house. We looked at several homes and he was very patient with us, listening to our likes and dislikes of the properties. When we did find the perfect home he worked very quickly and diligently to make sure we got the house! I love that he always kept us very informed with every step of the way through email, phone, text. Dave went above and beyond for us and we couldn't be any happier in our new home!

Yelp review:

Dave was amazing. He is very personable, thorough, and patient as we looked at homes. We began looking at houses in June and finally settled on a home in January. Dave patiently showed us homes all over the Olympia area. He faithfully scoured the MLS listings for potential homes and sent us weekly updates for us to review. If there was a home with potential, Dave would help us walk through the positives and negatives of each property, and then step back to let us make our decision. When it came time to write up the offer, Dave provided us with great advice and went over and above to help us close in a timely fashion. We actually looked forward to touring homes with him. We would strongly recommend him to anyone searching for a home in the Olympia area. - Barry O.


Yelp review:

I called Van Dorm Realty in the Spring of 2014, and by some feat of great luck, was put through to Dave Carney. He and I visited a handful of houses/properties in the Olympia area, and during that process, Dave was carefully listening to me and what I and my husband's dreams of a home were and how that would also meet the needs of my dog training business. Due to financial issues, I told Dave I would be buying a house in the next year, instead, and that I would be sure to call him then.

Dave graciously said that he would love to still show me some places in the meantime, just to check out the market and explore. Happily we didn't have to wait. Our financial situation turned around, and I put Dave back to work! I called him one day in May (2014), excited about a property I had seen in Yelm, WA with land and a big building for training (it turned out to be a dump). Dave said that he would arrange to show it to me, but asked if he could show me another property in the Yelm area he thought was really nice. I said "of course!" So he and my husband and I met at the property I had wanted to view, which turned out to be dismal. Then he drove us way out in the country to our dream home. It was the first day on the market. We loved it! I could go on and on about how Dave help us in so many ways through the buying process but it would be like writing a book. I have a new respect for the business of Realty. It takes a very special person and Dave is one of those! I could also go on and on about how perfect this place has been, and what a joy it is to live here. I still feel like it's a dream we were led to this home/property, which has a beautiful training building, kennel, fenced land and a gorgeous newer house that has everything we dreamed of.

Didn't mean to make this so long but in reality, it's SHORT. So much more I could say about Dave and his skills and passion as a realtor. He is honest, too (in the first properties, he didn't sugar coat the negatives of the homes). He made house hunting/buying a real joy and we will never forget Dave and give him full credit for the reason we got this great place.

Yelp review:

We really enjoyed working with Dave.  He is very personable, professional, and really knows what he is talking about in the real estate industry.  We needed to sell our home quickly and for a certain price and Dave delivered on both!  We sold our home in just 10 days.  We have already recommended him to several of our friends that are looking to sell their home.  I highly recommend using Dave Carney to sell or purchase your next home!
