"I have dealt twice with David Ashcraft, the first time was in 2002 while buying a vineyard estate and the 2nd time was 2012 while selling a vineyard estate. I was a little concerned due to David’s location not being in Napa but after dealing with the Napa area Realtors I came back to David and found that my concerns were unfounded. David…. was the realtor to be with, and got the job done in a short time.
1. His professionalism with the knowledge of properties and locations in the wine country.
2. His communication skills that keep you informed each step of the way.
3. His ability to negotiate on your behalf while keeping the overall goal in sight.
Without a doubt David would be my choice of a Realtor in the wine country."
Joe V, Former Napa Valley Vineyard Estate Owner
"After living 30 years in Walnut Creek, California we were ready for a new life chapter and adventure in the wine country. Due to David Ashcraft's professional manner, extensive research and clear communication, our transition to Healdsburg in Sonoma County California was seamless and enjoyable. His patience, knowledge and attention to detail provided us the support we needed to purchase our vineyard homesite and realize our dream destination. We highly recommend Dave Ashcraft for all your real estate needs."Tim and Tee K (Vitezin.com) Dry Creek Valley, Healdsburg
"When we first started looking at purchasing a home in Sonoma County in2005, we talked to many agents. When we expanded our search to include homes with vineyards, we learned about Dave's company and met with him. He immediately inspired confidence and trust. He understands the landscape and quickly helped us narrow our search. During a process in which we looked at many homes over at least 6 months (and which would have taken even longer had Dave not understood what we wanted), Dave remained focused on helping us find the home that met our financial requirements and personal wish list and never pressured us one way or the other. He always listened, gave sound advice, and he is to this day a trusted resource and now a friend." Watch Video

"Dave was extremely patient with us and worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect property. He made every visit to Sonoma a great experience and helped us narrow our options as we learned more about the area. We have fond memories of our search and love our new property! Though we have found our perfect wine country destination and no longer need his expertise, we still look forward to seeing Dave on our visits."

"It was a pleasure to work with David to find Retrospect Vineyards in the heart of Russian River Valley. Not only did we see a number of attractive properties in both Sonoma and Napa, but in the end, the hard part was deciding between a great short list of properties from which to choose! Also, last but not least, due to David's deep connections, he helped us in countless ways to establish ourselves as growers in the region which shows that David goes beyond "the deal" which is something special."

"David was a full time resource to handle the entire process of buying our vineyard, start to finish. He has a strong, time-tested network which aided our process of buying the vineyard and developing the property."
Matt M, Healdsburg
"I would unconditionally recommend David Ashcraft to sell vineyard property in Sonoma County. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and easy to work with. He was able to sell my property at a reasonable price in a short period of time, because of the vast resources available to him. It was a very positive experience for me."
Former Premium Vineyard Owner, Healdsburg
"I was looking for property from 2002 to 2004, initially with the rough idea that I would like to have at least 10 acres of plantable land and a good building site. David Ashcraft worked with me patiently through this long process. An important part of their role was to help define what was feasible for us and then narrowing down the target properties that could meet our goals. In our case, we were looking for bare land and that brought with it the additional challenge of making certain that the county and local community would allow the development we envisioned. David Ashcraft's working knowledge of these issues allowed us to move forward and realize our dream of planting vineyards on an excellentsite in Sonoma County." Watch Video
