What Davina's Clients Are Saying
Davina is a dream to work with. I had plans to move to Socal for a while but because I travel a lot for work, I could never find the time to make it happen. Davina showed me several homes that fit my requirements, and when I found the right one for me, she helped me negotiate a great deal (from 26K to 20K per month including furnishings)! She was a great communicator throughout the entire process - always available to answer questions I had, and made sure to keep me updated on how things were progressing, and was even there at the time of exchanging keys. She also provided me with very helpful background information related to the property (title reports, checked facilities to make sure there were no issues, etc.). I would highly recommend working with her!
Davina is the best! So kind, patient and knowledgeable, she helped us a lot. My mom was moving out of a big house and was very stressed about the process. Davina held her hand, was always supportive, understanding and explaining every step of the way to her. She really knows how to connect to people and makes them feel well taken are of. Thank you so much for all your help!
I met Davina at an open house. Her calm and professional energy immediately made me feel at ease, never pushed. I decided to work with her on my property search and was very impressed. She continuously showed me great homes, promptly responded in detail to my questions, was patient and enjoyable to work with. When I finally found my ideal home she provided valuable market data that made a meaningful difference to me (a neighboring property was issued a demo permit so she warned me about ongoing construction). Davina is very knowledgeable and I truly felt that she was looking out for my best interest. She lead strategic negotiations (timing is everything) that got me a great value on my dream home. I couldn't be happier and recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their property!
Davina has been wonderful to work with. I'm relocating from San Francisco and don't know the area very well. She helped me understand how it works in deferent areas and been good at sending me listings with the things that are important for me to have. She even went and videotaped a property for me so I can have a better understanding before I actually get down there and see it. I can't wait to meet her in person when I come down to sign the lease!
Davina is an outstanding agent! She is very responsive, a great communicator and has her clients best interest in mind throughout the process. Her advice during key moments in time during a transaction are a valued asset. Davina is always willing to go the extra mile and her relentless high energy effort is truly appreciated.
There are not enough good things I can say about Davina. She is sophisticated, professional, a good listener and efficient in her work. I was impressed with her knowledge, don't let her youthful look fool you, she is a seasoned pro. I had a 1031 exchange and she worked with the accommodator through a difficult process. Davina's personable yet efficient communication style was very pleasant to work with. She achieved results. I highly recommend Davina for anyone looking to purchase a property!
It was a true pleasure working with Davina on my property search. I was unsure of which property to purchase but her patience, knowledge and professional demeanor made my decision easy. I highly recommend her, especially if you are looking in the Beverly Hills market. She's very experienced and detailed to easily guide you. Davina is the best!
Davina was a welcome breath of fresh air in my housing hunt! I've dealt with a couple other LA realtors in the past, and I always felt like they were trying to hard sell me - trying to force me to buy something that maybe wasn't perfect for me and my family. Davina was different. She took the time to listen to my concerns, address them, and guide me towards what eventually was an incredibly fulfilling house-buying experience for my entire family! I cannot thank her enough for her honesty and thoughtfulness while advising me. I was relatively inexperienced with the LA housing market, but she guided me through those thorny bushes with a gentle, yet knowledgeable professionalism that I will never forget. Oh yeah, AND she got me an incredible deal, too!! I cannot recommend her highly enough. She's the best there is in LA!
It was our sincerest pleasure working with Davina. She is genuine, and excellent communicator but best of all, very knowledgeable and extremely strategic with your goals in mind. Her experience and expert recommendations helped us in our decision making. After looking at many properties in Beverly Hills, we agreed with her suggestion sand purchased a gorgeous luxury condo with features she explained were valuable. Now, in just over a year, or home has appreciated by almost 30%! We couldn't be happier! You will not regret working with Davina, her knowledge of the luxury condo market is only matched by her warm personality. We absolutely adore her.
Most professional, kind, proactive, smart and punctual, great communicator! I would recommend Ms. Potratz to everyone, regardless of age, value of the property or any other concerns! Davina showed me at least 10 units, always very patient, helpful and I never felt being pressured! Her knowledge about the area, even construction were extremely helpful in my decision-making process.
