“David Elya just helped me purchase my first home in St Clair Shores. Dave is easy to work with. He had some good advice and I feel we put together a strong offer. He worked into the evening with the sellers agent to secure the deal. I would definitely recommend Brookview Realty if you are in  the market to buy or sell a home.”
Kyle P.

“David provided professional photography and excellent marketing tools for promoting our home. He is proficient in evaluating market values and setting price points. The customer service provided to us by David Elya was top notch.”
Virginia B.

“Had a very good experience with David Elya and would highly recommend him for selling your home. Home was only on market for less than a week and sold almost to fast. We would have Dave Elya sell another home for us in Michigan.”
Roy P.

“We are return clients of David Elya. He helped us day and night finding our first home over 7 years ago, and we all know first time buyers have no clue what they are looking for. We are very challenging clients, but David never skipped a beat and found us the perfect home. Now that our family has grown and our needs have changed David did it again! He found the perfect home for our family and helped us sell our home fast. He’s a joy to work with, and I highly recommend him. If we ever move again he’s our go-to-agent. Thank you again Mr. Elya for all your time and dedication!”
The Briggs Family

“Dave is a true professional! He answered any questions we had with confidence and, most important, knowledge. When we sat down with Dave the very first time he was honest and fair and certainly knew about the coming and goings in the area. He was prompt and efficient with letting us know when we had showings and was quick on giving us feed back. I hands down feel that Dave is the most knowledgeable and experienced realtor around!! I give Dave Elya a 5 STAR rating!!”
Grace E.

“Dave Elya was referred to us from a coworker. He is a great guy and made the process as painless as possible. He has a great understanding of the market and took the time to explain to me where we needed to be to get folks in the door. Listed the house for 5 days, had 6 showings and an offer for the full asking price. I couldn’t have asked for a nicer person to work through this with. Dave is a true professional that will work for you. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.”
Floyd A.

“As a first time home buyer, Mr. Elya was extremely helpful and knowledgeable throughout the buying process. He was great at bridging the gap between the buyer and the seller. I would highly recommend Mr. Elya to anyone buying or selling their home.”
Dana F.

“Dave, as one who had read much from ‘experts’ telling in excruciating detail exactly why one no longer needed to deal with a real estate broker, and how to sell you house on your own, I was leery to work with a broker. But after unsuccessfully trying to sell our house on our own for about 2 months, I realized it was going to be harder than I thought. I was still skeptical when you approached us to sell our home. I was immediately struck by your work ethic and the effort you put into, not only listing the home, but also marketing it. Your follow through and attention to detail were superb throughout the process. In the end, I believe I netted as much or more cash in my pocket, sooner, and with less headache, having put my trust in you than I could have on my own. Thanks for your efforts.”
Robert K.

“Our Brookview Realty agent was professional with a personal touch. Knew the market well and explained everything in full detail. Great follow through and readily available when needed.”
Larry A.

“Dave Elya was helpful, courteous, prompt, always available, responsive to my individual needs, and willing to allow me some personal quirks (which may have been VERY out of the ordinary for a seller!) with real grace! He is a decent man and a GOOD realtor!”
Violet N.
