    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    My focus is helping people reach their own unique goals when buying or selling a home. You can expect consistent communication and great service, because you control my business by referring me to other people.

    I'm both an experienced and highly trained real estate agent who can negotiate for your best interest. I aim to provide a level of expertise and care missing in the real estate industry. Even after a sale, you can rely on me to stay in contact so you can access my vetted business network when you need a solid recommendation to a contractor or professional.

    I've lived in Rochester for over 35 years and my wife and I have made it our home. I also serve in the 198th Army Reserve Band in Rochester. I know and love the Greater Rochester area and can help make it your home too!

    Larry & Juana gave David 5 stars out of 5
    Dave Is an exceptional agent who brings a wealth of real estate and area knowledge to his clients. We chose Dave as our agent due to the fact he was the only agent that stayed in touch during the interviewing process. After listing with Dave we thought we made the wrong decision when he advised us on the listing price (significantly lower than we expected). We had 50+ scheduled showings, 20+ offers, and multiple offers in the range we were wanting. We could not have chosen a better agent for our property, he stayed in touch during the journey and well afterwards to ensure our needs were met. Thank you Dave we could not have done it without you

    Nelson & Karen gave David 5 stars out of 5
    We were able to purchase our new home because of David's understanding of the market and negotiating skills. He gave us exactly the right tips to get our previous house ready for sale and thoroughly explained the selling process. David was always professional and was readily available to answer any questions we had. We are very grateful for his service and skills and highly recommend him.

    As first time homebuyers, David made the process so easy for us! He was able to answer all of our questions in a timely manner and have a variety of resources for us to look at and use to help us as we were closing. He is the person you want to help you with whatever you need!

    Dave was very diligent with getting us into every showing we were interested as quickly as possible. He coordinated a lot of specifics once we decided to make an offer and helped us navigate some unexpected bumps in the road. We appreciate all his hard work and timely response to all our needs!

    David went above and beyond to help me with the sale of my house. As I was already living out of town he kept me well informed every step of the way. I can't thank David enough for all that he did to make the sale of my house successful.

    Amy gave David 5 stars out of 5
    This was the second time I have had the pleasure of working with David. He made my home-buying and selling experiences stress-free and honestly fun! He communicated with me every step of the way and consistently gave sound advice. David is so approachable! No matter what question I asked, he made me feel at ease and answered me urgently any day or night. He acted quickly when we needed to pursue the next step--and that is especially important in this extremely competitive real estate market. My favorite thing about David is the genuine caring he put towards every interaction. From meeting me at my closing to hosting an event that included my family at a pumpkin patch this past fall--David is special and one of a kind. I'd give him 6 stars if such an option existed. Thank you for everything David!

    Amy gave David 5 stars out of 5
    Working with David was such a great experience!. He was extremely prompt, responsive and approachable. I had worked with other realtors in the past and what I received from David in terms of support does not even compare. He was with me in the process of buying a new home and selling my existing, every step of the way. From staging and pictures, to suggesting new properties, pointing out the pros and cons and accompanying me on every tour. People I know have often perceived the selling and buying process as stressful and just plain not fun. However working with David was such a positive experience overall. He was just so friendly and optimistic. He even joined me when I closed on my new home. He has also kept in touch since to see how my children and I are enjoying our new home. He just genuinely cares! It is my honor and privilege to now call David a friend. If I ever happen to be I'm the market again, he is the first call I will make.

    Geri & Kyle gave David 5 stars out of 5
    David took the time to get to know us. He knew what we were looking for and asked many questions to help us determine our priorities. I have worked with many realtors in the past and what I liked most about working with David was that he was very knowledgeable and was able to talk us through the whole process and ask the questions we didn't know to ask. He was also very accessible. He was quick to get back to us with information. He was there for every step and has even kept in touch after the sale. I would highly recommend David for any realty needs.

    Amy gave David 5 stars out of 5
    David was awesome to work with - he is an expert in the ins and outs of buying and owning a home and I knew he had my best interests in the forefront of his mind throughout the whole process. I could absolutely trust his advice on each house we looked at: he was always quick to look at the details, checking the basements, heating/cooling units, foundation, etc. and was clear about what he saw. Even in a tough market, David kept a level head and focused not just on helping me get a house, but helping me establish a home with a solid future. He cares about his clients and absolutely wants the best for them! He has a great network of people too and is always willing to connect you with them (electricians, inspectors, etc.). David made the home buying process easy and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

    Cory & Hester gave David 5 stars out of 5
    We lucked out with David. After some renovations on our old property, we went with David again in order to sell our old home, placing it on the market. We received a great offer, were scheduled to close in August when the buyer backed out of the contract. A stressful experience to say the least. David handled it with ease. No time was wasted with the home being placed back on the market the next day. Within a day we accepted another offer, and closed on September 16th. What could have been a disaster turned out to be nothing more than a hiccup. Thank you David! I hope we can find a reason to work with you again.

    David was unfailingly helpful and attentive in managing the sale of my townhouse. His experience in this market served to guide me in all the necessary decisions, such as setting an asking price and then evaluating multiple offers. He is knowledgeable and efficient, and I particularly appreciated his weekly phone calls to check in and ask if I had any questions or concerns. I would recommend David to any friend or acquaintance looking for a realtor in this area.

    We had a great experience with David! We were first time homebuyers and had no idea where to even start. David educated us along the way to find our perfect first home. He always scheduled showings that worked for us and was timely getting back to us with any questions. Thank you, David!

    Steve & Bethany gave David 5 stars out of 5
    Moving and buying a home in the middle of COVID wasn't ideal timing, but the whole process was smooth, was made easy to understand and was done very professionally by our real estate agent, David Shewan. He clearly explained each step and the many questions we had. We could tell he was interested in finding out our goals, and showed us homes that really fit our stage of life. The closing process went very well, David had great recommendations from everything from attorneys to home insurance agents. Even after the purchase, David is still answering those questions and recommending professionals for everything our home needs. Will be recommending to any of our friends looking for a real estate agent who is honest, personable and invested in his clients needs.

    David was very proactive and helpful selling my Mom's house after she had passed. He was also very understanding and sensitive to what we were going through selling her house. Even though the house was in Lockport, he was very attentive to everything we needed to get the house quickly sold.

    Luke & Emma gave David 5 stars out of 5
    We had a phenomenal experience working with David as first-time home-buyers. David was fantastic at understanding our goals, working toward them with us, and teaching us the industry along the way. He was extremely responsive/reliable from the time we were considering starting a search until our move-in day. He also has a great network of professional contacts. I would highly recommend David to anyone!

    David helped us through our first time home buying process. David was always available to answer our questions, pointed out things that we hadn't noticed, and helped us navigate the long process. David also told us about businesses he recommended we use at many of the steps in the process, which was helpful.

    David is always professional with a kind, down to earth, spirit. He will really listen to you and help to make sure that you are satisfied with this important transaction. He will respond to you promptly and go above and beyond his commitment as a realtor. He also offers great referrals/resources, if you need them.

    Chris gave David 5 stars out of 5
    David has been an indispensable tool in our home buying process. He explains everything in simple, yet thorough language. He did not pressure us at any point, only showed us houses relevant to our search, and left no stone unturned throughout our experience. Most of all, he was able to give us direction through the many areas in which we had no idea what to do, whether it directly related to his job or otherwise. David separated himself from other agents with his knowledge and personal connection to the area. He is invested in and supports the community outside of his job, so I know he has the best interests of his clients and his community in mind. From beginning to end, David has been an invaluable asset and we will definitely use him again in the future. I recommend him 100%.

    Matthew & Jennifer gave David 5 stars out of 5
    We can't speak highly enough about David. David helped my wife and I buy our first home. The process was extremely daunting but David was always there to answer our questions. During our first showings, he didn't hover but also pointed out the things we needed to know and look for if we were serious about purchasing a home. His help made us feel more confident as we saw more and more homes. When we finally found the perfect home, he jumped in and guided us through the process, flawlessly. We were one of multiple offers so there was some back and forth. David was constantly updating us and we never felt out of the loop. From start to finish, David had our back. If you're looking to buy a home, the easiest decision you could make is having David help you find your perfect home.

    I had the pleasure of working with David to find and buy my first home. The experience of buying my first home could have been daunting, but with Davids help & dedication, it was a breeze! I really appreciated that he was willing to tour multiple different houses with me on any given day, and his knowledge of the different neighborhoods & types of houses was extremely beneficial. He was very helpful in recommending additional services, like an attorney & inspector to help continue a smooth process. He even helped push my car out of the snow during a few house showings (now THAT is good customer service!) I couldn't be happier with my experience!! I am in love with my new home.

    Before I met David I had 4 other agents trying to help for over 2 year span. They just just kept sending me houses and didn't look at when they were sending even if it was a bad home that needed a lot of work. After 1-2 home showings they stopped helping and stopped answering my calls or messages. I met David in Nov 2019. He worked around my schedule. He Checked in often and listened to what my needs and wants were. David was more then great! When I picked out my house David walked me though what my next steps were and what to expect. I finally closed on 1/27/2020. In three months David was able to help my find my forever home! This is my first home buying experience and I was scared because of the past agents, David really helped and guided me in the right direction, I can't thank you enough for everything David!! If this would let me give you 10 Stars I would!

    David went above and beyond for us! Not just in finding and buying the home, but outside of that as well. My wife and I have been thoroughly impressed with his attention to detail, customer service, and personal responsibility. Since this was our first home, we had no idea what we were getting into and David made it super simple. I highly recommend David to anyone looking for a home! Always a pleasure!

    David is a great agent. He was willing to meet us whenever our schedule worked. He listened to us (our desires and wants) and directed us to the beautiful house we bought. We were clear about things we weren't willing to settle on and he listened to everything. Our house is a home. We love the neighborhood. If you're looking for a house then David is the man. He's willing to do anything he can to make sure your purchase is perfect for you. Glad we met. We wouldn't work with anyone else. Thank you for your time and dedication to our lives.

    David helped me buy my first rental property, which I must say went like clockwork. He was on top of all the details so as a buyer I didn't have to fret about this or that snag as they came along. He kept me informed as to the process and was quick to answer any questions I posed. If he has to investigate a matter he was quick to do the work and get back to me. Would I use him as my realtor again? Well, I already am! He's helping me locate my next property which I hope to locate soon. Trust me...he's good!
