HOME.
Aside from people who are close to us, a home can be the greatest source of comfort in our lives. Whether it's a mansion, a condo, a ranch, a bungalow, an apartment or an igloo, your home is a sanctuary. And whether it's the dazzling views, the highly functional kitchen, the nourishing herb garden, the utility of an oversized garage, or the historic arches of the doorways, a home has characteristics that speak to our individual lifestyles, our priorities, our souls.  So, love the place you choose for your home.  It matters.

FUN.
The experience of buying or selling a home can, and should be, fun. Really. Although it’s a big decision that involves a considerable amount of money, countless homes are bought and sold every day and there are people who make a living at simplifying the process for you. I’m one of those people. By putting me to work, you can put more of your time and energy into thinking about the herbs to grow in the garden, the photos to take of the views, the gatherings to be had in the kitchen.

YOU.
You come first in this relationship. And we'll remind you along the way it's a pleasure and an honor for us to do our best for you.

Prior to moving to L.A. in 2009, I made a career in the world of technology. With a BS from Rutgers University and an MS from Southern Methodist University, I spent 20 years with AT&T / Bell Labs, RealNetworks and Medio Systems managing the development and deployment of very large, complex data network and broadcast management solutions for clients all over the world. Those projects involved countless tasks to be done on time, in a particular sequence, delivered according to the terms of a contract. Now, I do the same thing, but with a product whose value is much more tangible and whose "launch date" is much more fulfulling... the day I hand you the keys to your new home.

Testimonials

He's incredibly thorough, thoughtful, and present. I can't imagine working with any other agent, ever.

I am from the east coast and had to find a new home in a very short amount of time. I chatted with David before I arrived in LA, and spent a few days driving around with him to view various properties. First - he's just an incredibly nice guy. We spent days together and it could have been a nightmare with anyone not as kind and personable as David. He picked me up, drove me around, and taught me about LA. He's a wealth of knowledge about historical context and current trends. He responded quickly to every question I had with complete mastery of details and process. I sought his insight and opinion on every property I viewed - as he has great taste. He's incredibly thorough, thoughtful, and present. I can't imagine working with any other agent, ever. I trust him implicitly and will recommend him to everyone I know.

We never felt at all like we were his “clients”…

David was knowledgeable with every aspect of the home buying process and was willing to aid and offer unbiased professional suggestions based on learning our needs as people. We never felt at all like we were his “clients” and as a result we developed trust and we were able to make logical  and clear decisions. David’s professionalism and deep knowledge of the contracts were key in the bidding process as well as setting parameters in the contingency paperwork. David is an excellent communicator and was able to be effective with all parties involved. All this to say he cares and loves what he does as an agent and it all shows in his work.

...his negotiation skills played a large part in why we ended up with our dream home in this competitive market
David did an amazing job as our realtor and we will be recommending him to our family and friends. He’s patient, intelligent, punctual, and makes the home buying and selling process as smooth as can be. He sold our condo for above asking and we know his negotiation skills played a large part in why we ended up with our dream home in this competitive market. Thanks again David!

Patient, honest, and an all-around fun guy to be around...
My girlfriend Amy and I had a great experience working with David. He is patient, knowledgeable, honest and an all-around fun guy to be around -- which, you know, might not seems like a big deal, but let's face it, you spend a lot of time with your realtor. So you better enjoy their company. David was super-responsive, too. And once we got to the point of making an offer, he talked us through the process in a thorough manner, and in a way we could understand. You should hire him as your agent
Tim C, 

I would recommend him a million times over...
David is the best! He got exactly what we were looking for and showed us only relevant properties. He got us an accepted offer on our first home we made an offer on (huge in this current market), and he held our hands through inspections and the entire escrow process. I would recommend him a million times over and only use him in the future myself. 
Victoria H., 

Couldn't imagine a better experience... 
David went above and beyond to help us find our dream family home. We never felt any pressure and whenever questions came up he either had the answers or found the person who did. Couldn't imagine a better experience.

David is the definition of "having your best interest"…
I could not begin to fathom working with anyone else. In fact, I can't imagine anyone not working with David to buy or sell a house. David is the definition of "having your best interest" as he was a part of our team in every sense, during every step of the way. It took us quite some time to find our house and his patience was saintly; something one can take for granted during the process. David is a rockstar at negotiating and knows every area of LA inside and out, a huge asset to our search and ultimately a huge reason we were able to beat out 10+ other buyers. 
Matt & Liz 

He consistently kind, available, and very knowledgeable about the marketplace…
David was absolutely incredible through our home buying process. We met about four years back when we weren't quite ready to buy a home, but David was always there when we had any questions. He consistently kind, available, and very knowledgeable about the marketplace so we came to trust him in a very organic way. Last year we decided that we were finally ready to take the plunge so we let him know what we were looking for and we began our search. After several months and being outbid on 3 offers we finally won on our perfect place. David made the process super-easy and educated us on every aspect of the transaction. He had no trouble negotiating our terms or asking for credits. He was available at all times, flexible, honest, and wonderful to be around. We are very happy with his service and couldn't recommend him higher. He goes above and beyond the call of duty for his clients.

...he was incredibly thorough and took care of every detail no matter how small
You are in great hands with David! I was nervous about making the step to buy a house, but he was incredibly thorough and took care of every detail no matter how small. Any question I answered he followed up on immediately and even checked out things I hadn't even thought of. I would definitely work with David again! He's great at his job and so easy going and a great guy to be around. He even bought me a wonderful housewarming gift after everything was done. Can't recommend him enough.
Veronica M. 

Never did I feel pressured in any direction...
David is super easy to work with. He is patient, extremely knowledgeable and informative, and he goes out of his way to help you get the house of your dreams. Never did I feel pressured in any direction. He was always available and went beyond what was expected to help finalize the sale. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone.

David is client focused and committed...

...he guided us through the process with patience and ease.
David was a true pleasure to work with. We're first-time house sellers; he guided us through the process with patience and ease. His responsiveness was commendable - often responding to our emails or phone calls within minutes. David continually kept us up-to-date with the progress of our open houses and what the next steps toward closing the deal were. Our transaction had some last minute curveballs due to inspections; David handled this with tact and clearly laid out our options for us. Also, between work and kids, we have very busy schedules. David went the extra mile and met with various vendors at the house on our behalf; this was most appreciated. We recommend David without reservation.

If there was a better rating than 'A', David would get it.
We had the pleasure of working with Mr. David Kubiczky to purchase our first home. From our very first meeting with David, we felt comfortable coming to him, and we can honestly say that we would not have gotten the house we did without his guidance. David is a true real estate professional, very  responsive, quickly answers questions and is happy to provide detailed explanations and reasoning behind his advice, as well as suggesting different options. All of the paperwork is done digitally, which is a great time saver, especially when you want to make adjustments to an offer. He worked with our lenders, escrows to put together an amazing offer package. David came to our apartment to formally meet with us, so that we could discuss the house purchase process, and to listen to our wants from our new home. He was incredibly open, and we felt very comfortable with him. We had so many silly questions, and he never failed to take the time to educate us. David gave us such an awesome experience! If there was a better rating than 'A', David would get it. He was absolutely instrumental in helping us purchase our first home. He was always quick to respond to all of our nervous emails, I especially enjoyed his quick responses to our emails and phone calls. From the very first time we contacted David to the day we picked up our keys, we felt confident, comfortable, and happy to be working with him. David was always professional and prompts to respond and he answered every question thoughtfully and thoroughly. We found David to be a delightful blend of professionalism and full of personality such as a demonstration at the guitar. We highly recommend him as someone who will be there as your personal guide to a great real estate transaction.

…made me feel as though I was his sole client.
I worked with David Kubiczky for over a year to find the right property for me. Throughout that time David was consistently professional, able to answer my many questions thoughtfully and thoroughly and guided me through the whole property purchasing process which, as a first time buyer, was  completely alien for me. David's attention to detail and responsiveness made me feel as though I was his sole client, even though I was aware of his multitude other projects. It was never too late to call or an inconvenience which was the kind of attention I required. During the year David got to know me well and he was much better placed to find the right properties for me to consider and eventually we closed on the perfect home. I would not hesitate to recommend working with David.

…truly the most responsive, thorough agent I've ever worked with.
We met David at an open house in our neighborhood and were very impressed with his knowledge of the Silver Lake/ Los Feliz market. But, it was his follow up that was really great - a thoughtful e-mail with lots of info after a short chat at an open house! So, we worked with him in our search for  an investment property. He is truly the most responsive, thorough agent I've ever worked with. I never had to worry about missing a great listing and he helped us find a perfect property. He guided us through the negotiations, which can be tough in this environment, and although the closing was tricky, he was on top of every detail from start to finish. He also has great taste. If you are looking to buy or sell, we highly recommend David.

Cannot say enough good things…
I cannot say enough good things about David Kubiczky. I used him to find my first new home, and he consistently displayed an incredibly patient and helpful disposition. David always put my interest first. He helped me put a contract on two different houses, both of which he was successful in  winning for me. The first house ended up not being a good fit for a number of reasons, and David helped me to rescind the offer without any pressure. The second house was the one I ended up buying. It was a highly competitive situation with multiple bids. Once again, David managed to get my bid accepted. He was also extremely helpful during the negotiating process, providing sound advice, advice that was contrary to what I had intended in order to make my bid more appealing. I ended up following his advice, and was happy I did after the home inspections.

David took full command of the inspection process, arranging a home inspection and a foundation inspection right away. When the home inspection indicated that there were issues that need to be addressed, David then met with a contractor, an electrician, an HVAC professional, and a plumber. Given the short inspection period, all of this happened in a few days while I was at work. Throughout this entire process, David was constantly in communication with me, ensuring that we were on the same page.

Due to his advice, we were able to negotiate several thousands of dollars of credits from the sellers to address the issues. David’s advice helped me secure funds to make the needed repairs. David went above and beyond my initial expectations and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house.

Going two for two in a highly competitive market
I cannot say enough good things about David. W used him to find a home, and he was incredibly patient and extremely helpful. One of the great things about David is that he always puts your interest first. He first helped us find a house in the Silver Lake area which we put under contract.   During the contingency period it became clear that there were some issues that made us decide to rescind the offer. David gave great advice during the process, and we never once felt that he would want us to go ahead if it was not right for us. We were then lucky enough to find another property. This one had 25 offers, and needless to say the entire process was very quick and complicated. David was again extremely helpful in the negotiating process, and we won the bid. We had considered waiving the inspection. David advised us strongly that even though the house appeared to be in great shape, he felt strongly that we should at least have a short inspection period. We won the final round of bidding with a 5 day inspection period. David took full command of the inspection process, arranging a home inspection and a foundation inspection right away. When the home inspection indicated that there were issues that need to be addressed, David then met with a contractor, an electrician, an HVAC professional, and a plumber. Given the short inspection period, all of this happened in a few days while one of us was at work and the other out of town. David was communicating with us constantly. Due to his advice, we were able to negotiate several thousands of dollars of credits from the sellers to address the issues. David did not just go beyond the extra mile – he went an extra marathon. We would use him again in a heartbeat.

I didn’t have to worry about a single thing during the entire escrow process.
David helped us tremendously during our search for a new home. He's very professional, always on top of things, and very quick to answer any concern or explain the procedures and next steps to take. He explained to us (first time buyers), well before we made any offer, the whole process of buying a house, showed us all the forms we will have to sign, explained all the terms, answered all my "whys" and "hows" questions (unlike some of the other people that we had to interact with during the process, which were not immediately open about what is ahead of us, and weren't so quick or willing to address concerns). He used a online service to sign forms "digitally" so that we could have a very quick turnaround when we had to, say, make an offer or a counter offer, or get some documents ready quickly. After an offer was accepted, the home inspection was scheduled in a matter of days (hours?). I didn't have to worry about a single thing during the whole escrow process, because I knew he would take care of it. And he did. He was always available via email, sms or phone call, and would respond quickly (faster than I could reply back!).
Daniel T.

…amazing attention to detail thoroughness and immediate response.
The great thing about David which helped us get the house (our first and only offer submitted) was his amazing attention to detail and thoroughness and immediate response. He is on top of things and proactive. He would follow up with the other parties before we even ask him. Thanks to him, we  managed to close escrow and get the house in a painless manner.
Yvonne C.

…held our hands throughout the long short sale process.
Excellent! Mr. Kubiczky is a highly qualified, knowledgeable, and hard working realtor. He is always ready and eager to answer the many questions that clients have, and believe me my husband and I had numerous questions. He was very considerate of our situation and budget. He held our hands throughout the long short sale process and was available whenever we needed him. You can count on David Kubiczky. He is the expert in his field.

David will never push his opinions onto you…
David worked with us diligently for several months to find our home... We chose David after being solicited by many other agents. The difference was immediately noticeable. His knowledge of the real estate process is very very thorough. His honesty and patience during the process was great.   David will never push his opinions onto you -- rather, he wants you to find the home that perfectly fits your needs. He went out of his way on more then one occasion to help make the process as easy for us as possible. He walked us through every aspect of the process and had incredible patience answering any and all questions we had. You have found the right guy... We could not be happier with his service and our new home.
Matt S.

David's most outstanding asset is his PATIENCE
David's most outstanding asset is his PATIENCE. His patience facilitated our home selection and purchase. He managed to help us find the perfect property that suited our style and needs, at a price that we could afford. Our place really feels like home.

Oh, BTW, David is very kind yet stern when he needs to be. Not stern with the potential buyer(s), but towards any other individual involved in the process who may not be performing to ones expectation. It is good to know you have a nice guy representing you who is not afraid to speak up when necessary.
