David did an amazing job of helping us value, and sell, a unique property in a difficult/transitioning market, a feat we feel that lesser experienced representative would not have been able to match. We highly recommend his ability to value and market unique (and wine-focused) properties, work incredibly hard (he was at every single showing, inspection etc.), negotiate effectively and simply represent seller's wishes with the utmost professionalism. Getting a true professional, like David, on your side is the best decision you can make.
"David Ashcraft of Vintroux delivered what we needed and then some. We had been searching for over a year for an economically-viable Sonoma County vineyard, with residence, before we contacted David to see if he could help. In our first meeting, he carefully assessed our objectives and suggested that we consider a different Sonoma region and a different grape variety, then followed up by showing us a nearby Pinot vineyard, which we subsequently purchased.
The transaction was complicated on both the seller’s and buyers’ sides and David stayed close to help us with the many due diligence details . His professionalism and attention to detail while staying amicable was excellent. We couldn’t have asked for a better agent.
We love our new property and remain in close contact with David."
As a 30 year plus commercial real estate professional it was a pleasure to do business with David Ashcraft as our agent during the sale of one of our vineyard properties. I found David to be professional, knowledgeable, proactive, responsive and easy to work with. Along with an effective marketing strategy, David was able to maneuver through an extremely complex diligence, encumbrance and title scenario. He was able to communicate effectively with all parties, and bring our transaction to a successful close. David would definitely make your disposition process clean and smooth no matter the number or complexity of the challenges.
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 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.

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 always listened, gave sound advice, and he is to this day a trusted resource and now a friend.

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.

I was looking for property from 2002 to 2004. 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 excellent site in Sonoma County.
David did an excellent job marketing, representing, negotiating, and selling our property in Sonoma. His strong communication skills kept us abreast of the details as we worked through a complex escrow. We highly recommend David for your real estate needs.
