    David Blockhus

    Los Altos Real Estate Specialist

    I am a real estate consultant, husband, father, water polo hack and wine lover. I was raised in Los Altos, graduated from Oak Elementary, Blach Intermediate and Awalt High School (now called Mountain View High). I live in Los Altos with my wife and our yellow Lab. We have two grown children.

    I began my residential real estate career (1993) with Cornish and Carey residential Real Estate in downtown Los Altos, which was acquired by Coldwell Banker in 1997. My DRE License Number is 01169028. I specialize in selling single family homes, townhomes and condos locally.

    For those clients interested in building or remodeling, my experience as a member of Los Altos’ Design Review Commission can be an asset.

    When I'm not working, I enjoy volunteering at our local schools, as well as, at many of our local civic events. I have coached kindergarteners through high schoolers in soccer, baseball, and waterpolo. I continue to referee high school water polo matches.

    With almost 30 years selling homes locally, I have a deep understanding of our local market and sub-markets. I have strong negotiation skills and I love what I do. My advice is practical, no-nonsense and very straight forward. My wife loves my warped sense of humor, my kids…not so much. How can I assist you?

      "Thanks are in order. Thanks to you we sold my house in one day. Thanks to you we got the best price in the neighborhood, too. Thanks for being so cooperative, energetic, and diligent. Thanks for your tact, your breezy sense of humor, your patience in explaining every detail of the contract. Thanks for showing up in the rain, in the dark, for fetching the mail, overseeing the work, and every other inconvenience you shrugged off so easily when you were needed. Practically perfect, and an Old Blue, besides! Thanks Dave for being the best."

      "I want to give you my heartfelt thanks for your diligent work in selling my house. As you know, I was totally ignorant in matters of present day real estate selling. However, in a short time I became aware of your ability, sincerity, and attention to the sale of my property. Because you patiently and simply explained the many procedures, I was able to understand the necessity for many details, and to know I was in good hands. So -- Thank you so much for successfully selling my house. I certainly will recommend you whenever the opportunity arises. " J.W.

    • "I wanted to thank you for all your efforts and hard work selling our home. Given that we no longer live in the area, our reliance on your abilities was crucial and we were not disappointed. Your assistance was truly appreciated. When we began the process of interviewing Realtors to represent us in the sale of our home we wanted someone with experience. We also wanted someone who new the local market conditions, who could negotiate effectively for us and someone who was a professional with good judgment. You fit that description to a tee. Others may have a lower fee, but I strongly believe that your negotiation and knowledge made more for us than a 1 point reduction in your commission."

      "I knew it would take and exceptional marketing effort to get our house sold given its location and condition and you provided that and more!"

      "We found Dave to be very knowledgeable, patient (a must considering all the questions we had), and most important of all, a person of true integrity. Dave took the time to explain to us in detail all phases of the process, including pointing out the pro's and con's of the each issue from both the buyers and the seller’s perspective. At no time during the process did we ever feel that we were being pressured in any way into making a decision that wasn't in our best interest. We consider him to be the consummate professional and certainly the first person we will turn to if/when the time comes for us to move again."
