We met Davis 3 years ago when my daughter and her husband purchased a townhome and his company was representing the seller. We were so taken by his demeanor and knowledge that when my daughter decided to purchase the property she used him as her agent. He was able to negotiate a great price and he made the buying process as stress free as it can be. The whole experience was so positive I knew that whenever I sold a home I would call him to represent us as sellers. We recently had a rental in the Westhills area that we decided to sell. His marketing skills are excellent and he made the selling process as easy as it can be. With just his targeted pre-market roll out and signage before we even hit the MLS we had 6 offers, with the accepted offer being $80,000 over asking. We were thrilled. He could not have been a better advocate for us. I trust him implicitly. We hope to be putting another home on the market soon and of course he will be our guy. My daughter and sister are also thinking of using him. He is the type of person that does not sweat the small stuff and just removes so much stress from the situation. He is an awesome realtor but more than anything he is just a wonderful person with a very nice way about him.


Davis Bartels and his associate Matt Larsen have been an extreme pleasure to work with. When trying to sell our home, we encountered a lot of different agents that seemed to only care about the money and not what was best for us. This was definitely NOT the case with Davis and his team and we are pleased to recommend them to anyone! They took the time to make sure we knew about the whole process and made sure we were comfortable with all the steps. Truly a great team!

Davis is an incredibly hands on and engaged realtor. He has gone above and beyond in his efforts to support my husband and I in getting into many rentals and ultimately buying a home. His consistency, patience, and commitment to each individual's process is uniquely untouched and motivating. We look forward to continuing to work with Davis in all of our ventures with real estate!

Lorraine Couzzi

When it came time that our elderly mother was no longer to live on her own, we reached out to Davis.This particular situation, would require an agent who would demonstrate great professionalism, patience and compassion. Davis possessed all of these qualities which provided us with peace of mind during a very difficult time. He was steadfast in his communication with us and the entire process from start to finish was seamless.

Brandon Katz

Davis and his team go above and beyond to provide an exceptional customer service experience. On top of their fantastic service, they provide the sort of value that can only come with seasoned and knowledgeable professionals. There are nuances of purchasing and selling real estate that make a huge difference in a transaction. Davis and team understand these intricacies which allows then to maximize value for their client. Their attention to detail is truly unmatched. I highly recommend Davis and his team and will continuously utilize their services for all of my real estate needs in the future.

Robin Kaswick

So Davis did an amazing job for me. He was professional from the first meeting. I interviewed another agent who was very nice but Davis is what you want in an agent. He marketed my house I so well that it sold in two days for $25,000 over asking price. I would recommend him to anyone.

Carol Guillen

Davis and his team are true professionals. He was recommended to us by our granddaughter and her husband, whom he'd recently helped by their first home. We're so glad we took their recommendation, as we couldn't have asked for a better experience. He represented us as sellers and was understanding about our hesitation in listing our home after living in it for many years. We ended up getting two excellent offers before the house went on the multiple listing. In fact, the photographs for the listing were being taken on the day the offers were made. Davis made the experience easy and always kept us informed of upcoming inspections. His advice was always in our best interest. Thank you Davis and Matt, his great assistant, you made our sale easy. We won't hesitate highly recommending you to all our friends, family and neighbors. You're the best!

10/10 I would recommend working with Davis when looking for your new home! As first time home buyers, it was very important to have someone who was knowledgable, friendly, resourceful, and communicative. Davis is very active on Social Media and is great at updating all his followers and clients on properties across Ventura and LA County, something I saw as a major bonus for a realtor. Davis was always there for us when we had any questions and very quick to pick up the phone when we called. Davis's Real Estate network has definitely paid off. He was able to call his connections and get us into a house during these crazy "Covid-19" times. He was more than happy to show us any property we wanted to see, no matter the day of the week. Davis would send us weekly emails with houses customized to our liking. He also sent out 500+ handwritten notes to our desired neighborhood, which ended up working for our favor and got us the house of our dreams! This man goes the extra step for his clients! Once we got into the escrow stage, he also helped us get out of our current lease. We could not have been more pleased with Davis and his expertise on landing our first amazing home in Westlake Village.

Michael Toepfer

Davis and his team are professional, positive and productive! He got my house on the market within a couple days on short notice and got us multiple offers at over asking within the first week! He also made our new home purchase smooth and stress free. Davis has the experience, drive, passion and networking that makes him a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family!

Dana reardon

Davis is the best! Period. This is my first home and I was very excited but nervous. Davis made this a wonderful experience and was very informative and attentive!

Nancy B

Amazing Young professional. Listened to us and helped us achieve our goal. We never felt rushed or pressured. He was extremely helpful in pointing out pros and cons of a property.

Sandy E

I highly recommend Davis he was amazing. My family and I loved how professional he was and were really impressed on how fast he sold our home. Davis was very helpful and was always there for us every time we had questions. He always kept us informed about where we were and what was needed during the process of the sell. Definitely giving him a call again when we decide to purchase or sell again.


Davis was recommended by a friend, though I had planned to use someone else to list my dad's house. I'm glad I didn't use someone else! Davis impressed me from the start and never disappointed! He was really helpful throughout the process, and always available when I needed him. It was a really stressful time for me, and Davis went above and beyond to ease that stress, even helping me sell some things from my dad's home. He was aggressive when he needed to be, and we ended up selling the home for more than the asking BEFORE it ever went to the Multiple! It was a pleasure working with him, and I would do it again!

Gabe Taksa

As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions and concerns about the process. Davis was incredibly responsive and put everything in simple terms for me. Every request I had was responded to nearly instantly. I had to go back and forth with the seller on a few issues. He acted as liaison and was able to get some concessions I asked for. This was all new to me and he walked me through all the contingency periods with guidance on what to expect through each. He referred me to contractors that I used for some things I needed to take care of and also referred me to some potential roommates. It seems like he went far above and beyond what most realtors would do for their clients. Basically he put my mind at ease through everything, answered everything I needed, and put it all in perspective for me; where something as daunting as a first time home purchase might be it wasn't overwhelming at all.

Charles Alexander Munn

Going into the home buying process as a first time homebuyer was daunting to say the least. However Davis is the epitome of professional. He was able to simplify the process and put all pertinent information into layman's terms. Everyone's situation is different and I was apprehensive as to my ability to obtain my dream home. He told me exactly what to expect throughout the process and that is exactly what happened. I could not be more happy with the ways things turned out and to be able to call Davis a good friend.

Adam & Jillian Darley

TL;DR -- Davis is a great realtor and would highly recommend! We just bought a house in Oak Park with Davis and overall had a great experience. We ended up finding the house pretty quickly, but for about 2-3 weeks we went to a lot of showings and Davis always made himself available and coordinated with the sellers to get us a walkthrough. We never felt like we were rushed into a deal and he always answered our questions honestly as if it were his own investment. Davis is a young guy, very personable, but definitely knows what he's talking about. He was able to negotiate a fair price with the seller quickly before other buyers got involved. He provided solid guidance on several issues that came up during the inspection and everything got resolved before closing. Lastly, if you're looking to remodel any part of your home, Davis provided excellent recommendations for contractors. We used his painters and electricians, who both did great work at a very reasonable price. We got multiple bids and Davis's were by far the most affordable. His lender also gave us the best interest rate. He is definitely well connected and knows how to handle all aspects of the transaction. Thanks for all your help Davis!

Geoff K

My wife and I started working with Davis after striking out with several other realtors. Davis was very knowledgeable and made our home buying experience extremely easy. We highly recommend Davis to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!

Jared Schacher

Davis and his team have been incredible. Selling and buying a house at the same time can be extremely stressful, but Davis has made this process extremely easy for us. After listing our house for 6 days, we received an offer 40k HIGHER than our listing price! Davis was extremely reliable and helpful throughout the entire process. I would recommend him and his team to anyone. You will also save $$ as his commissions are far less than anyone I have ever worked with. Thanks again Davis and team!

Nate Lytle

I have worked with Davis for many years. I recently closed escrow on my most recent transaction with Davis. After working with Davis multiple times, I can without any doubt that he is a pro!!! Every transaction has been so smooth and simple. Davis handles everything you would expect from your agent and more. With his help, I can focus on the things that buyers and sellers want to focus on: buying furniture, remodeling, picking out flooring, etc… I want to know that my agent has my back, that he is getting me the best deal and that I am protected. With Davis, I know I am covered! Buying and selling can be stressful, but if you pick the right agent, the process becomes much more manageable. There are a lot of options out there and I know multiple agents myself and I wouldn’t be caught dead using someone else! Do yourself a favor and give Davis a ring when thinking about buying or selling!!!

Barbara D.

Davis has been a pleasure to work with. My husband and I have been looking for the right house for a while. When we found the one, He helped us get the house quick and no hassle. He helped us with negotiating and made sure it would go smoothly. He’s professional and personable everything you would want in a realtor. Highly recommend him.

Wendy Rodriguez

Extremely grateful to have had Davis Assist myself through the process of purchasing our first home . As a first time home buyer it is critical to have a knowledgable, trustworthy and caring realtor and that is who Davis is and then more ! Can’t say enough about how amazing he is, will absolutely recommend Davis to everyone . Thank you for your guidance throughout the ENTIRE process !

Charlie Andrews

Davis represented us as the seller. He did a wonderful job from start to finish. The pictures and the overflight by the drone added to the fast sale. He was excellent to work with and we will use him again.

Mark Pennington

Davis Bartels is the consummate real estate professional and the person you want if your selling or buying a home. There's a reason they say moving is one of the top three most stressful life events, especially if that includes selling your home...there are so many details! Davis and his team took all the stress, confusion and uncertainty out of the selling process for my wife and I. From our very first meeting, Davis explained exactly what he was going to go, then did everything promised and more. Including selling our home within their average of 27 days, they sold our home in 10 days!! As thorough, professional and buttoned up as Davis is, he doesn't do it alone. Just as amazing and professional are the office staff who ensure all the paperwork and details are executed flawlessly. Best of all was the thousands of dollars Davis saved us in commissions! I was skeptical that they could provide such a completely full service experience and save us so much but that is exactly what HelpUSell did. The free moving van that we took full advantage of was the icing on the cake. A million "thank you's" for such a wonderful experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Davis!!

Tom Castagnetto

Everyone has one, two, or even twenty friends or acquaintances who's a realtor. I had about 10 people tell me they would love to find me the perfect house. Only one delivered, Davis Bartels. Davis really knew exactly what we were looking for. He was on top of the market the moment a prospect was for sale. He proved that time and again with his thorough knowledge of home construction and the local market. Every time we viewed a new property Davis would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems, commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. Davis also led us through multiple rounds of offers and negotiation to get to a price we were comfortable with. In the end we found the property that was perfect for us. In this market, you don't need some friend or acquaintance to help you find or sell a home. You need a shark! I highly recommend Davis Bartels. -Tom Castagnetto

James Hartje

Davis was very knowledgeable & super supportive throughout the whole process helping us buy our first home. Couldn’t ask for more help in letting us find it dream house & guiding us throughout the process. Did an amazing job in negotiating our deal & making the whole transition very easy handling all the work & keeping us updated throughout the way. Highly recommend Davis for his expertise!

Beverly & Jason

My husband and I found our dream home at an open house hosted by Davis. He was so knowledgeable and helpful that we used him as our agent to buy the house. Every step of the way he represented our interests and was extremely responsive to our every whim (and we had a lot of whims!). Given some insane scheduling difficulties, we needed a faster close. Davis wrangled all of the relevant parties (loan, title, escrow) like a Jedi master. Against all odds, we signed our loan docs at 7 am and by 2 pm that same day we were taking a selfie with Davis while holding our keys. The use of the Help-U-Sell truck was icing on the cake! Seriously, a great experience and a great guy.

Robin Taylor

Working with Davis made home buying an incredibly pleasant experience. From beginning to end, we felt completely taken care of and that Davis always had our best interest in mind. He found the PERFECT house for us after we explained what we were looking for. He then directed us in the sometimes tricky negotiations that followed in securing a successful purchase. He was there every step of the way; his staff is friendly, prompt and professional. I will be recommending Davis to anyone that needs to buy or sell their property and will certainly be using him in any future transactions of my own. A true professional in every sense of the word!

Christian Fuess

Let me just say WOW!!! I have been in over 8 real estate transactions and Davis is BY FAR the best realtor I have ever had the opportunity to work with! Best service, most knowledgeable, will do anything for and who actually cares about his clients... From being relentless with sellers to push our offer to the top, working with my lender to make it easier on me, going through all my docs and getting excessive fees knocked off and reduced, to moving me next weekend... I'm completely blown away! We just closed on our house today and I owe it all to him. With any other realtor, our offer would have fallen through the cracks and we'd still be looking. Thank you so much Davis for making it happen! I truly appreciate everything you've done for me and my fiancé! You have a client for life. Thanks again brother!

Julia Barron

Davis was great throughout the home-buying / selling process! He was amazingly responsive and very consistent. His calm personality and demeanor was great during stressful times and he was never flustered by anything we threw at him or prospective buyers during the sale of our home. Our relationship with him grew during the process and there is no doubt he'll be our go-to person the next time we buy or sell - or remodel for that matter. He's a people person who puts an effort into maintaining relationships for the long-term and we're certain he probably "knows somebody" who can help us with our next kitchen project.

Forrest Gregge

I had the pleasure of working with Davis on purchasing an investment home. First off, Davis got us the house beating out 10 other offers and we didn't even submit the highest priced offer! Price isn’t always everything and having a good reputation and good relationships in the community is indispensable. What I thought would be an easy, cash purchase turned out to be more complex than it appeared. Due to the circumstances with the sale being a double trust and the seller’s lender delaying the closing, Davis jumped in to see that the transaction kept moving. As a Real Estate investor, I understand that in Real Estate sales can become complicated. When they do it is extremely important to have an experienced agent on your team that will protect your best interest (and your investment). Davis performed to a tee and made sure that we were protected every step of the way. What could have turned out to ruin the transaction, Davis was able to control and keep everyone on track. All the while he was very communicative and patient while we navigated through the entire process. I was kept up to speed as he updated me every step of the way. I could not imagine what would have happened if we had an inexperienced agent. Whether you are looking for an investment, you are a first time buyer or seller or whatever your real estate needs are I highly recommend Davis!! Give him a call.

Jeff K

I would not hesitate to recommend Davis. My daughter and her fiance recently purchased a townhouse and we met him at the open house. We had a bad experience previously with a realtor so we were a bit leery of real estate agents overall. He was very personable and just plain likable. We felt at ease immediately and decided we wanted to use him as our agent. Throughout the entire process he was an excellent communicator and very knowledgeable. Trust is so important in a relationship and he earned our trust pretty quickly. He made a stressful situation much easier to deal with. He always did exactly what he said he would do and that is rare. Phone calls and texts were returned promptly. He always made us feel like we were his most important clients. He got us an excellent deal on the property and he threw in some goodies for us at the close of escrow. Davis Bartels is an honest, reliable, and endearing man. I am happy that I got the chance to meet him and use him as our agent.

Chris Jimenez

Davis went above and beyond for my family and I. I have yet in my lifetime worked with an agent that is as professional, caring, and dedicated as Davis. From beginning to end he was always responsive and worked tirelessly to find my family the house of our dreams. Even after all his hard work when most agents would disappear he helped us carry boxes and furniture into our new home!

Victor T

Davis provided excellent service from the beginning to the end of my home purchase. His knowledge, honesty, and commitment were all a part of a smooth transaction. Most importantly, anytime I emailed or called him with a question or comment, there was an immediate response which showed his customer dedication.

Davis provided us a level of service beyond our expectations. With our home having sold faster than expected, we were needing to find a new home quickly. Given our budget and what we were looking for, there were a limited number of options available which made the homes we did find very challenging to purchase. When my wife fell in love with our new home, he went above and beyond to get our offer accepted over the others. He expertly negotiated with the sellers to ensure our offer was the one they chose. The service, expertise and responsiveness Davis exhibited was unparalleled!

Chris Berman

In this day and age with so many realtors it's important to use someone who is not only an expert in their craft but also someone you can trust and rely on. In my mind there is nobody who would fit this bill better than Davis Bartels. He would be my first and only choice in every situation. He is trustworthy. He worked tirelessly for my family at all hours of the day and night. He did an excellent job negotiating on our behalf. And most importantly he went out of his way to help us in what was one of the biggest moments in our life, buying our first home. He was an incredible help every step of the way. He always took the time to meet with us and answer any and all questions we had. I have called him up to 15 times in a day and I never once felt like I was bothering him. Every question I had was treated with respect, time and a thorough explanation. He was available day and night and always took the time to help me no matter how big or small the request was. I would recommend Davis Bartels for anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy real estate agent. He helped us in our move and he saved us tens of thousands of dollars. I can't say enough good things about him. The man was a true advocate and partner for our family. He gets things done. It was an absolute pleasure working with Davis and I couldn't have gotten this deal done without him.

I used Davis and his team for a short sale and it was such an amazing experience! it was quick and seamless, eliminating my stress! David and his team really know what they are doing and they do it well!!! Communication is always key when selling or buying a home and they always made sure I was in the loop. I would DEFINITELY suggest him to anyone who is in a situation where they may need to short sale their home!!! You wont be disappointed!

Chris Escalante

I am very pleased with how my short sale turned out. Thanks to Davis Bartels and his staff for making the process so smooth. Davis was very knowledgeable and straight forward. All my worries disappeared with his help. Highly recommend to anyone

Joe Shaw

Davis has been a great help going above and beyond the call of duty helping us with every aspect of selling our home. A young go getter who will go far in the business. Expect the best from this very professional individual!


Davis has been extraordinary. From start to finish he has handled everything. Working around the clock and is always anderwing calls texts and emails.

Brandon & Melissa

Davis was great through our entire home buying process... He showed us several homes that were not listed on the MLS. The house we bought was ultimately never listed, he found it for us before it ever hit the market. He was easy to reach, attentive to my needs and got us just what we were looking for. The best part was it appraised for $25,000 more than what I paid for it! He even paid to have the house cleaned before we moved in and helped with all of my questions after escrow closed. Highly recommended.

Amanda A

Davis Bartels was an amazing person to work with throughout the process of purchasing my home. It was my first time buying a home on my own and he patiently helped me every step of the way. He was also very diligent in getting things done in a timely manner and helped the process go very smoothly. I am so grateful that Davis found the perfect home for me and my boys, and that he helped it become a reality!

Leticia B.

Davis helped me to buy a house, he was very knowledgeable. I was able to buy a house in the area that I really wanted, and the price was very close to what I wanted to pay. I am grateful, the process went very smoothly.

Nelinia Varenas

Davis and his professional, capable and caring team helped my family through the process of selling our town home during difficult market conditions. Davis was a staunch and compassionate supporter and persisted until he was able to negotiate an outcome that worked in everyone's favor. He exceeded our expectations in every respect; we did not expect to receive some of the benefits that he arranged for us. Because of his dedication, hard work and high level of integrity, we are happy and the buyers are happy. Moreover, the 45-day escrow was handled efficiently, accurately and smoothly. There were no surprises. Truly amazing!

Roger Burry

Mr. Bartels helped me defined the condominium requirements that met my needs, provided a number of purchase opportunities, advised me and helped negotiate my offer. He managed the purchasing process very efficiently. He was available 24/7 to answer my questions and keep me informed. He was a major asset in a successful purchase.
