Would highly recommend working with Dave on any and all real estate transactions!

Michael Blazek (Chief Technical Architect )

Dave is an amazing realtor!

He helped us buy a house three years ago and when we were ready to sell, we knew we had to call him! He sold our current house and helped us buy a new one. Both experiences were wonderful. He is honest and knowledgeable. Buying and selling a home is stressful, and Dave made it a breeze!

Dave and his team marketed our house wonderfully with beautiful photos and the virtual walkthrough.

They set a reasonable price point, and set us up to get the best possible price for our home. We could not be happier with the result and look forward to or new home search with the Faxel group.

Also, Dave has a vast client base to share your listing. He was always available and stayed on top of the daily activities of my listing. I totally recommend David as your Real Estate Agent.

Dave was a great agent from beginning to end.

He helped us navigate through all the issues and there were many of them. He is friendly and helpful and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

John and Roxanne Klos (Retired couple)

Dave and Erin Faxil of NextHome were the best to work with as we were selling our home.

Dave researched all the evaluated our home and researched the values of the homes in the area so the recommended price of our home was acceptable to us and very attractive to the buyer. Before our home was placed on the market, Erin, took pictures of our home as well as a virtual 360 tour. The virtual tour was so awesome, we asked for the file so we could keep it as a memory of what was our home for over 43 years! The best part of all was our home sold with one day for full asking price. Thanks Dave and Erin for such a wonderful experience!

Y Mezyed

Working with Dave during the process of purchasing our very first home was certainly a pleasure.

He was professional all the way, took his time to understand exactly what we were looking for in terms of budgetary limitations, style of property, neighborhood, etc and made excellent recommendations per our requirements, and responded same day to emails. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and resourceful. We were never left wondering what we needed to do at any point during the whole process, i.e. from our initial introduction and meeting to the closing, because Dave being a very knowledgeable, considerate and attentive agent, noted all of our concerns and offered excellent suggestions every time. When we needed recommendations of the very best licensed experts for the various inspections, tests and legal services phase of the process, Dave had no shortage talents to recommend. Looking back, we would not have asked for a better real estate agent to work with. We do recommend the services of Dave to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, as he is, in our opinion, one of the finest in the business.

Todd Gicla (Mr)

David was an outstanding realtor in representing us as the seller for our home.

He was upfront and honest in what he believed we could get for our house, and worked hard in advising us in preparation of our home for showings, as well as generating the 3D walk-thru images for on-line inspections by potential buyers. Even as the challenge unfolded with the appraised value coming in slightly below the original offer price, David worked closely with the appraisal data to insure everything was resolved to our satisfaction, and fairly. I heartily recommend David Faxel as a realtor, and know he will be honest and work tirelessly on your behalf - be it for a seller or buyer. A job well done!

ALAN PUCKHABER (Quality Manager)

Highly recommend Dave!

Not the first time we've chosen him to be our realtor and definitely won't be the last. He's extremely dedicated and knowledgeable, and does a great job at leading you in the right direction in decisions you may be uncertain about.

Kim Abbott

We highly recommend Dave.

During these trying times Dave was reassuring and attentive to our concerns. His professionalism and attention to detail really helped get our home sold. He was always just a phone call or text message away! Thanks Dave!

Leo and Tanya Perez

Dave was very knowledgeable and responsive.

He was never pushy, but gave great advice when asked of him. Highly recommend!

Don Neakarse (Acct Manager)

We loved working with Dave he was honest and he sold our house quick ,helped us a lot .

His wife took Great pictures of house for people to see I would recommend him highly for buying or selling your home????. And left us a nice gift.

Virg and Bob (Buyer )

Dave was fantastic during the entire process.

He made time to meet at the house I was selling to answer questions and explain everything in great detail. Pictures of the house were great and the virtual tour was a nice touch. His communication throughout the entire selling of the property was top notch. If I ever had questions or concerns he was always there to answer the phone or would call me back a short time later.

Curt Cwudzinski

Working with Dave was phenomenal experience, especially as a first-time buyer.

When I had questions, and there were many, Dave had quick, detailed answers. Sugar-coating things is not his way, and I appreciate that. What made me almost instantly comfortable working with Dave is how, above all, he made it immediately apparent that he wanted me in a place where I could see myself and reasonably expect to be happy. There was never a hard sell or pressure of any kind. On top of all that, Dave is simultaneously honest and optimistic. The second time we went to look at properties was a Thursday that ended up being as fruitless as our first trip. Rather than let me be enchanted by shiny objects, Dave was quick to point out concerns he had and steer me clear of what I quickly realized would have been poor decisions had I pursued lesser properties. Even though I felt a little deflated after that second trip, the next day a bunch of other properties suddenly popped up. I was ready to go to a few open houses that Saturday, but Dave both worked his magic to line up a half dozen showings and then rearranged his schedule so he could be there, too. In a nutshell, Dave's communicative, buyer-focused, honest, optimistic, and available to his clients. I don't know that I could have asked for anything more when buying the house in which I am currently living. If you have a chance to work with him, do so without hesitation. Should I ever find myself looking to move again, Dave will be my first call.

Harley Brook

David is very professional.

We really appreciated his insight and guidance in preparing our townhome for sale. His knowledge resulted in our home having contracts offered in one day, and sold over the asking price. Thanks so much David!

Charlie & Joan Ward

I would not even know where to start when describing my experience with Dave.

His level of professionalism, knowledge of the area and thoroughness were all above all of my expectations. Kept me in the loop throughout the entire process, constant communication and got us 10% more than asking in less than a week. I highly recommend Dave, and if I were to ever need a realtor for any reason, or needed to recommend one, Dave would be the only number I would call. Great experience, highly recommended!!

Douglas Reilly (AVP Finance)

Dave was wonderful to work with in these unusual times.

He is experienced and was helpful with my many questions. This is my second time working with Dave and hope to work with him again, although not too soon. I love my new place!


Dave Faxel did an outstanding job for us.

He promised much and came through superbly. He is professional, experienced, friendly and very responsive when there were questions to be answered. Flawless!

Joseph Cascone (Owner Mold Pro Chicago)

Dave is a professional who focuses on the detail.

He thoroughly presented a marketing strategy for the sale of our home. The photos taken of our home were excellent and highlighted the major features of our home. The first weekend open house generated over 20 showings. We were offered a contract within two weeks at full asking price. The closing of our home occurred approximately 45 after we signed the listing agreement. We are very satisfied with Dave and his team throughout the entire process of selling our home.

Richard and Evelyn Cerceo

Dave is a phenomenal realtor and just a really awesome human!

! He made the entire process from getting our 30 yr old home ready for listing pictures (thanks Erin), through to our "extended" closing much less stressful and more smoothly than it could have gone. We will recommend Dave to any of our friends or family who might consider moving in the future. Thanks again Dave!!

Brittany Kaup

I was so impressed with the Faxel Group.

I had a unique situation of selling a home in a state that I no longer reside in. They handled everything, were very professional, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend The Faxel Group to any new home buyers or sellers. You will not be disappointed.

Mary Greer

My mom used Dave to sell her house, and he helped her sell in a few short weeks.

Of course, we used his services when we decided to sell our home. He helped us know what we needed to do to make it more marketable, as he had a plan on how to gain the most interest. We had two offers within three days, and our house was sold in less than a week AT ASKING PRICE. We highly recommend Dave for any of your realty needs. He's very communicative and has a great understanding of the market.

Karen Bartecki

Dave is truly a professional and knows his business, the market, and understands a client's needs.

I can't say enough about our trust in him to get the best deal. He is transparent, communicative and heavily relied upon. Can't say enough about him.

I usually do not write reviews, but I cannot say enough about the great experience with The Faxel Group.

Having worked with him in the past, I knew I would be foolish not to again.

Dave was awesome to work with.

We couldn’t recommend him more. He helped us find our first house as a couple and once we grew as a family and outgrew it we called him back up to use as our realtor again. He made the entire buying/selling process a great experience. Very knowledgeable and polite!

Jessica Gervino

Dave did a great job packaging our townhouse for sale and then marketing it aggressively through the begining months of the COVID crisis.

Iwas very surprised at the number ofshowings he produced in the most difficult of times HE kept us informed and successfully sold the property despite difficulties presented by the buyer. I highly recommend Dave and will hire him when I decide to sell my house.

Terri Boers

From the very beginning of the process to sell my home, Dave was involved with every step.

Dave gave me guidance on what should be done to get the house ready to put on the market. Once on the market, Dave quickly advertised the house on various sites to ensure wide coverage. Once the house was sold, which only took a few days, Dave still stayed involved until closing. Dave is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He works for you. I truly feel that Dave’s invaluable assistance kept a stressful matter manageable. I couldn’t be happier.

"Dave was amazing to work with. From the very beginning he explained the entire home selling experience so there were no surprises along the way. He helped us stage our home for the perfect presentation to potential buyers, and his virtual tour technology gave us an edge on other homes listed in the area. While consulting us on what price to list for, as well as working our way through the negotiation process, it was clear he had our best interests at hand, and never pushed us in any direction. I tend to have a lot of questions, Dave was right there with the answer the whole time. If you are looking for an agent that will get you the best and be at your side for the whole process, then Dave Faxel is your guy!"

"Dave is a full time professional. He provided us with all the data we needed in order to sell our home after having lived there for more than thirty two years. Dave is very personable and is a great communicator. From the beginning we felt comfortable with him as our realtor and that was very apparent in that he was readily accessible any time we texted or called him with a question. Our home was on the market for a little over two weeks, sold for 97% of the asking price and closed on the date both parties agreed to on the original contract."
