Clients Testimonials


Dave Starr has performed above and beyond all expectations when listing and selling our house under very difficult and high pressured circumstances. His ability to maintain his composure and fulfill promises was greatly appreciated. Dave’s knowledge and experience of both the neighborhood and market led to our house selling above list price. I would strongly recommend his services for anyone who wants a hands on and more personal type of service. Great job Dave.

Dave Starr has got to be, bar no one, the best Real Estate agent in the entire world!!

When I decided to move to a smaller property and looked at all I had collected; boxes, furniture, knick-knacks, I was completely overwhelmed. I knew I wanted Dave to be my Agent and I knew I didn't want my hose to be staged.

Dave came on over and without judgement guided me as to how to move the furniture around for enhanced showings.

He gave suggestions like picking up large clear bins to use to pack and directed me where to store things in the basement to optimize space. Not only did he direct me, he even came over with a mop and pail and mopped himself my cement floor furnace/storage room. Even with broken bones!!!!

He was amazing and so much help to get the house in ship-shape readiness in a little time as possible.

My house sold in a very short time with 3 offers; one with a significant amount over asking.

It didn't take long to find a new home as Dave listened to what I wanted and filtered through the listings prior to sending them to me to view.....Wasting no one's time.

I would highly recommend leaving your most important decision, buying/selling a new home with the man named Dave Starr

Thanks Dave!!!!

I had the pleasure of working with Dave on the sale of my home recently. At times, it seemed unsurmountable to get my house ready for market, as I'm on my own, but Dave was there to offer great advice, and referred me to his professional contacts (such as painters and cleaners), to help get everything ready which helped me immensely. He was professional, responsive, and his years of experience in the industry ensured that I got top dollar for my house. Would highly recommend!


Duchess Henderson


My husband and I  used Dave Starr recently for both the purchase and sale of our home.  The expertise and commitment that he brings to the table are second to none.  I would recommend Dave and his team to anyone who is looking for real estate services.  Thank you again Dave for all of your support!

Stephanie Callaghan


Dave is a pro at what he does! Given that it was a tough market and our neighbour couldn’t sell for 4 months we didn’t know what to expect! Dave reassured us not to worry. Within the 1st day on the market the deal was done and our house was sold! We couldn’t believe it! Well over our neighbours asking price. We were actually the highest semi that sold in Newmarket in 2019! We owe it all to Dave. He had a professional crew, photos, videos and Dave was hands on with everything we needed. We are very happy with his service and will absolutely use his services again and highly recommend him to anyone who wants a smooth stress free transaction!

Dave was able to sell our house at a price we wanted without having it go to MLS. He was also helpful with movers, lawyers and providing names for small jobs to get our house marketable . I would certainly recommend him .

Bruce Campsall


Dave Starr has been a real estate agent my family has used to sell our homes in the past. Most recently, he was my agent of choice when it came to selling my matrimonial home which under the circumstances was not your typical situation. Dave was professional, accommodating and his personality is one of a kind! He takes any worry away in the process of preparing and listing your home. He is consistent, honest and extremely reliable. He is a man on a mission, determined to provide his clients with only the best real estate services from start to finish. If you have any questions, call Dave. If you want an update or have a concern of any kind, call Dave! I will always use Dave Starr as my agent moving forward when the time comes. If you’re looking to sell your house, contact Dave, you won’t be disappointed.

By far a 5 Starr rating!


Heather Day


Dave Starr is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. He is professional, passionate, detail oriented and genuinely cares about his clients. He is not someone who does real estate on the side. Real estate is his career and his passion and his years of experience and negotiating skills make a big difference when you are buying or selling a home. He has sold five homes for us to date, most of them selling in just a few days for at or above asking. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great real estate agent.


Sarah Hodges


I was referred to Dave Starr of Sutton Group Future Reality in Newmarket by my daughter and son-in-law who had successfully used the services of Dave who listed and sold their home in Newmarket. They were very please with the services he provided and the above listing he obtained on their behalf.

As a senior citizen, selling a home for the first time, I contacted Dave Starr. From our first meeting it was evident that Dave’s knowledge of both the real estate processes and markets and as well as his work ethics were admirable. Dave took time to explain the processes of selling as well as purchasing to me which was most appreciated. Once we had agreed on my accepting Dave as my agent in the sale of my property, Dave arranged to have very professional pictures taken of my condo as well as the building’s amenities and surroundings. Numerous showings were arranged through Dave and within a few weeks of the listing, Dave had obtained an offer on my behalf and after some negotiations were accepted.

Dave was also able to recommend a real estate agent in the area where I was re-locating to assist in my purchase which was very much appreciated by me. This also proved to be a great working relationship and I was able to purchase my new home close to family.
Dave’s professionalism as well as his wealth of experience and knowledge of the real estate market with all it’s ups and downs provided me with a very successful transition to my new home. I highly recommend Dave Starr for anyone looking for a highly experienced and competent Real Estate agent.

We have had the pleasure of Dave acting on our behalf on a number of real estate transactions over the years. We have always felt that he had our best interest in mind, maximizing the price we received while minimizing the price we paid, always in a professional manner. If you want the best agent in your court, go with Dave!

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

I first met Dave walking my dog. We talked and I was impressed with his knowledge and commitment to his profession. Years later when my wife and I decided to sell, we chose Dave and are so glad we did. He negotiated top dollar for our property and assisted us through to its completion, in a market when other deals were failing to close. Dave is always available to take my calls and discuss the market with me. I would highly recommend him and will definitely be using him again in the future.

We needed to sell our cottage which had been in our family for almost 60 years. We talked to a real estate agent who brought us comparable listings and had a professional power point presentation. Problem was, she didn't get the location of our property at all. Beautiful setting with an amazing view of Lake Simcoe. The other listings were away from the lake. We remembered talking to Dave Starr many years ago and had seen his signs in our cottage neighbourhood and decided to give him a call. I'm so glad we did. Dave GOT the location! He gave us suggestions on how to best stage it and had it sold within days of putting it on the market. We sold for over list price, more than the original agent thought possible. We would highly recommend Dave Starr.


Tracy Prentice March 5, 2020


Dave is highly recommended. We started talking to him when were considering a move and he found us a home that perfectly met our needs in the neighbourhood we wanted. He also sold our previous house in a matter of days and got us our asking price. He's very professional and pleasant to deal with.

Gerry Frenette March 4, 2020


Our neighbor referred us to Dave Starr. A year prior, we had been unsuccessful in selling our home and did not have the best experience with another agent.

From the moment we met Dave, we got the sense that he was different. he patiently spent time with us, exploring the possibility of listing our home again. What we appreciated most about Dave was that he is honest and he cares about the people that he represents. We may not have embraced his suggestions with open arms, but we listened to his advice regarding the selling price and changes we needed to improve our marketability. This time, our home sold within a few weeks thanks to his guidance.

When it came to search for our new home, Dave was extremely patient and more than accommodating to meet with us, even on short notice. We appreciated his keen eye to detail and his directness as he pointed out the pros and cons of each potential new house. He demonstrated that he genuinely cared that we found our ideal home. When we finally found the home that we wanted to buy, Dave exceeded our expectations. He is an exceptional negotiator and also helped to navigate us through any challenges we faced with the purchase.

Again, we thank Dave for guiding us through the entire process. There were a few bumps along the way, and he was always there for us - right on top of things. When it comes to your most important investment, you need to go with a seasoned agent that looks out for your best interests. Thank you Dave!

We first met Dave Star in 2005 when we listed our townhome in Newmarket. It was sold within 3 days of listing it and sold for the highest price of any townhome on the street. The following year, we asked Dave to sell Rob's parent's home in Toronto. The house received multiple offers and we got the best price and conditions possible.


A few years later, we listed our home in a new development in Newmarket with Dave. That home sold quickly too. 


Last year, I tried to sell my mother's home, giving an inexperienced relative an opportunity. When that house languished on the market for almost 6 months, I turned to Dave to help me sell that home. It sold within a week of being on the market and I got the best price possible. At that time, Dave also guided me through the family dynamics of an estate sale and gave some helpful suggestions on what will encourage buyers to purchase the home.


With Dave's career focused on real estate for over 30 years, we highly recommend him to sell your home. He is very personable and easy to get along with. Dave knows the market; he knows what price will sell and how to market your home. Dave's experience and knowledge will help you too.

We recently sold our house in Newmarket. We listed it in June, after the real estate market settled down after a big price surge earlier in 2017. We chose Dave Starr of Sutton Group as our agent. It was a great decision. Dave Starr has more than 29 years of real estate experience.


Dave's industry experience, his knowledge of York Region, his resources, along with his calm demeanor were vital in this turbulent market. Amanda Vienneau worked with Dave on our listing. Amanda's enthusiasm and diligence complement Dave well. They are a great team.


Dave secured us a good, fair price in a tougher market. We highly recommend Dave Starr and Amanda Vienneau of Sutton Group.

Kathy & Doug Bar


Good day Dave and Amanda,

Re: Letter of Recommendation


Dave worked together with us to address the challenges of our unique property providing strategies to get results in a timely manner that we required.  The quality of his work showed great professionalism with a marketing plan he arranged specifically for our needs and requirements.


Throughout the whole process he communicated, educated, and coached us to best prepare us for the fruition of selling our home.  In review of the offers Dave and Amanda did their due diligence paying attention to the fine details and evaluating complexities of the offers.  With Amanda's innovative approach and their skill of negotiation they were successful in bringing the parties to agreement and achieved the results we desired.


They made the sale of our home a pleasant experience.  We recommend Dave Starr and Amanda Vienneau as real estate professionals because they worked so well with us and got the results we wanted in a timely manner.


Thanks again.

Kelly and Mike


Dave Starr went over and above . The market is a sellers market- however it takes the right agent to sell to the right new home owner. I am going to miss this place- a beautiful location with all the right amenities.

I wish the new home owner all the happiness I experienced. Well done Dave!. I recommend you to anyone selling or buying. You have that "Starr" treatment.

Record Price !!!  When looking for a real estate agent, a professional negotiator is the key.  Dave, Amanda and Karen all have individual specialties but come together as an efficient and knowledgeable team.

I was skeptical to use an agent after successfully selling houses myself on a couple of occasions but after using Dave and Amanda I realize that I could not have done it close to as good as what they were able to do. Unlike most high level agents who send someone else to do their work, when you call Dave, you get Dave, from the start to the finish. 

If you’re looking for a PROFESSIONAL, someone who knows the industry, knows how to sell a house for top dollar and most importantly, knows how to close the deal, I would strongly recommend you call Dave.

Marcel & Katie


Wow is the first word that comes to mind about our experience with Dave STARR and his team. I actually took the time to interview multiple real estate agents before deciding and the STARR team came out easily on top. First we had the pleasure to work with Amanda Vienneau. The best way to describe our interaction is first-class. Attentive to all your need, Amanda is like the perfect employee you never had. She’s on top of everything, replies to any inquiries lightning fast, everything happens quickly and effortlessly... honesty I wish I could steal her to work in my line of work.

As if that wasn't enough, then comes Dave STARR. I'll say he didn't make up his last name. Dave got so much experience with closing deals, I couldn't believe the whirlwind of offers we got for a property we thought would be hard to sell. Whether you had other properties for sell before or this is your first, Dave STARR is the best team in town. I won't blink an eye to strongly recommend them to anyone who inquires about our experience.

The notion of buying and selling a home can be overwhelming and intimidating, however, after finding Dave Starr, we felt like we had found a true partner in our endeavor who really understood our needs and desires and turned our entire journey into an enjoyable one! Dave's years of experience in the Real Estate business was clearly demonstrated by is intimate knowledge of the community and his ability to recognize fair value in this ever changing market. He showed us only properties that fit both our budget and criteria and when it came time to making an offer, we were convinced he had our best interests at heart and negotiated a price that both we, the buyers, and the sellers were satisfied with. We especially appreciated how Dave and his staff made themselves available to us despite our hectic working schedules. There was even a time when we were signing an offer at 11:30 PM!

Once we had purchased our new home, we were anxious about ensuring we sold [our current home] for a price that aligned to our expectation and in a time frame that suited our moving date. Dave continued to coach and guide us on how to maximize our renovation investments as we began to prepare our home for selling. He identified critical things in our home that could be enhanced with minimal expense and great esthetic appeal.

We were thrilled with Dave's extensive contact list and referrals for everything we needed to repair our home. His referrals were cost effective, got the job done on time and with decent quality!

Dave continued to check in on us during our renovations phase to ensure we were on track or to offer additional assistance as required. Once we were all satisfied that the home was appropriately staged for selling, Dave pulled out all the stops! We had a front page advertisement in the local newspaper, the home was professionally photographed for the MLS listing and beautiful colour brochures were printed for the open house.

In four days, our property had about 10-12 visit, and our first offer came in after the Open House on the fourth day. The offer was serious, fair, and with minimal conditions. The buyers accepted our one and only counter offer!

Dave's portfolio of assistance in the whole process even extended to moving day when we hired one of his fantastic referrals who had us moved - unscathed - in two hours during the biggest ice storm in Ontario history! Big thanks to Dave, his staff, and his referrals for turning our life changing event into a smooth, efficient, and profitable experience.
