Get yourself one of those unicorns!

Like many others we didn’t know where to start with home buying process. People said, saved up to 20% for down payment. With the market bouncing up and we were discouraged. Until we found David and his podcast. He break down the home buying process into kindergarten level, so it was easy for us to understand which ways to take. The information he provided really help us with the process. So, we reached out to him and asked for one of those unicorn realtors and mortgage team. We started listening to his podcast in late March 2022 and we just closed on our first home in June 2022! Thank you David for helping us becoming first time homeowner!

We can do this!!

My husband and I never thought home ownership was a possibility. Honestly, we didn’t even know where to start. Luckily I stumbled on this podcast and it was the BEST FIND EVER! I’ve binged almost all the episodes and then got up the courage to reach out to David. He connected us with an awesome lender and a great unicorn Realtor. We’re currently working our plan and hope to purchase a home in the next few months — in the SF Bay Area! The format of the podcast is perfect for a novice. David’s hosting style is informative, passionate, and entertaining. Beware: he’s super corny, and that makes it so RAD!
