"When you have roots in a community, you love to help it grow. Mine run deep."
The Los Angeles area has been my home since birth. I can't imagine living anywhere else. Some 20 years ago, I chose real estate for my career. It quickly became my passion.
Why do I love it so much?
Because buying or selling a home is among the most important events in the life of any family or individual. That's why I find it so gratifying to provide real help to people going through that process. I believe the key to success is to really get to know my clients and their unique needs. I enjoy learning about them because I genuinely like people. To me, it's vital to figure out the challenges they face and how to meet them most effectively.
Learning from the best.
I was very fortunate early on to have worked with some of the best brokers in L.A. Their insight and mentoring enabled me to eventually become the #1 real estate agent from the Hollywood Hills to Downtown L.A. in 2010, 2011 and 2012. In 2013 I was inspired to create a company that thinks differently from the "cookie-cutter" approach to selling real estate. I wanted the company to focus on how things are from the perspective of clients then do whatever is in their best interests. And that's how Think Real Estate came to be.
The bottom line for me has nothing to do with money.
Family and community are my top priorities. I'm married to an amazing partner named Jennie, and we have two incredible kids and a couple of four-legged friends. As a group, we love nothing more than to get out and explore the natural wonders of Southern California.
Being part of something larger than ourselves.
Our family values also include lending a hand to those in need. Making our contribution to their well-being creates a feeling unlike any other. We feel grateful, for example, that we're able to contribute to local homeless charities. We're happy as well to donate 5% of the net commission we earn on your sale to the charity of your choice. I'm also proud to serve on the board of the Los Feliz Library where we develop innovative outreach literacy programs for disadvantaged youth. I truly enjoy connecting with people and learning how I can be of service.

What Daves' clients have to say...
From the moment he walked through our home, he had an instinct of what needed to be done to maximize the value of our home. The tradesmen he worked with (painters, electricians, inspectors, stagers) were prompt, professional and reasonably priced.
Thanks to Dave’s adept advertising and social media campaign, we had 4 successful open houses with a lot of foot traffic. We got 14 offers above asking. We accepted an offer for hundreds of thousands of dollars above asking and closed escrow in less than one month. There were a couple of hiccups along the way, but Dave smoothed out everything. The buyers were able to spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve in their new home.
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of choosing the right agent. Dave is friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. We would recommend Dave Robles to anyone! -- LW
We will continue to use Dave for any future real estate needs and we couldn't recommend him more.
Selling a home (especially one that you love) is a stressful experience. Dave and his team took such good care to make the process as easy as possible. Professional, personable, efficient and savvy - this team knows what they are doing and they understand the market completely. Could not have had a more positive experience!
Would recommend them to anyone. They made the first time buying experience not only manageable but got us in a lovely home in just one week, showing us tons of places in a short period of time.
She was available to us at every turn throughout the process, from sending us listings, to showing us properties (including bringing flashlights and crawling under houses :) ), to being an incredible advocate for us in the offer/escrow process. Perhaps most importantly, she created great working relationships with the listing agent, the buyers, and our lender, which helped us stand out from the pack amidst multiple offers. Throughout our time working with Wendy she was proactive, reaching out to educate us about the process and to simply provide support.
It’s true what they say — buying a house is stressful. There is no one better than Wendy Colton to be your partner and advocate in LA’s tough real estate market. We are forever grateful to Wendy for helping us get our dream home.
We put our property on the market about 2 weeks after the lockdown started, so we couldn't use the strategy we had discussed, of the Open House. However, due to the Dave's hard work in getting the listing prepared, we had lots of interest, and within a couple of days, had an Offer well over asking price! We were really impressed!
From that point, Dave handled the 30 day escrow, extremely professionally! He kept us up to date but also made sure everything was smooth - no stress whatsoever! I would without question, highlyrecommend him. His company are everything an awesome real estate service should be, and lived up to every expectation we had, and more!
Thank you so much!
He went to bat for me several times during the process helping me navigate through difficult situations. First he informed me I should make an offer $40K above the asking price and Im pretty sure that was a big reason the seller chose my offer. YAY! Next when the house was appraised for "$40K less" than my initial offer, instead of losing the extra $40K out of my pocket, Dave once again went to bat and in an almost unprecedented move, convinced the seller/bank to lower the cost of the home by $40K, so it was a win-win for all.
Dave was always on my side and helped me every step of the way. Today I am a single woman homeowner with a home that I love in the foothills of LA. My home has increased $200K in 1.5 years of ownership and I couldn't be more thrilled.
I have recommended him to many for selling and buying and wouldn't hesitate to use him again. His strengths are his ability to handle and defuse stressful situations in a calm manner (and these days buying/selling a home in LA is always stressful), his 25+ years of real estate knowledge and history, his prompt responses, his great advice, his professionalism and friendly persona are all serious and necessary benefits whether you are buying or selling in this exciting, but competitive real estate market.
Need a realtor for any reason? Dave Robles IS the best. Look no further.
He deeply cares for his clients and is extremely knowledgeable.
