Here is What Our Clients Say About Us!
It was effortless working with Century 21. As well as being an agent, David was a coach. His focus was clearly on what was best for us, not what was best for him or his connections. He gave honest and impartial views and information, space to make our own decisions and avoided salesmanship. He was in no rush to sell us something. It is clear he values a long term relationship over short term gain or convenience.
We ended up in a bidding was for the house we bought. Our bid was no better, but David's integrity was the edge - the Seller's agent and the sellers preferred to deal with a straight-shooter of integrity like David rather than the others in the process.
David is flexible and generous with his time, in order to make the process easy for his clients. He draws no boundaries and will help with anything he can - if it's in his realm, he will answer from his deep experience; and, if not, he will connect you with the right person. He is responsive and continues to help with everything, even after the sale has closed. - Paul & Shobitha Grant
David recently acted as agent for the sale of our home in Halifax. He is extremely knowledgeable about the local market, and uses that knowledge along with detailed research to help his sellers decide on selling price.
He guided us well through the negotiation process; he has an open and direct approach.
If you want an agent who will not beat about the bush, but who will get on with serving your best interests in the sale of your home, David is a good choice. - Elizabeth Collis & George Jeha
I have dealt with numerous real estate agents during my life, both buying and selling. I am pleased to say you rank at the top by far, the service and advice was top notch which allowed us to sell this property. - Wayne N Rogers
In early April, I met with Century 21 REALTOR, David Yetman while researching how I, as Power of Attorney, would go about selling the family home belonging to my 91 year old mother, who had recently moved to a long term care facility. Until my sister & I met with David, I was not convinced that a full service real estate agent was the best option for the sale of the house. David presented his marketing plan for this older home, in need of extensive renovations. The family was aware that the home was over-assessed, and David’s plan took all of that into consideration and his well thought out strategy and realistic recommended list price, proved to me that the ONLY way to sell my mother’s home was with David Yetman, full service REALTOR®!
From that first face to face meeting, David gave guidance and practical advice on how to deal with 56 years of family life still remaining in the house. David was sensitive to our personal feelings as well as patient while he waited for us to empty the house and provide all of the information and paperwork required to officially put the house on the market.
David went above and beyond the call of duty for a Real Estate Agent and actively sought and found a loving home for my mother’s beloved cat, Angela! David had already earned his commission before the house even went on the market!
Finally on the morning of May 17th the house officially was listed as “For Sale”. There were four viewings that day, and by early evening I received an e-mail from David advising that there were TWO offers coming in! And at 5:30pm the following day I had accepted an excellent offer, with a closing at the end of May. I was thrilled!
My experience with this real estate transaction was as perfect as it can get! I usually have a high degree of anxiety when dealing with important matters that affect others, but this entire experience has been “Anxiety Free” for me. David took care of everything, in a professional and sensitive manner. Dealing with families and the emotions of selling the family home cannot be easy, but David succeeded in keeping everything calm as well as upbeat. The home was sold for the best price, in the fastest time, with the least amount of stress. David’s knowledge proved invaluable, and I would recommend him to family, friends and colleagues, as the entire process and especially the results could not have been better.
I look forward to working with him again if the opportunity presents itself! - Mary B Connors
David Yetman came highly recommend to us by a close friend of mine here in Annapolis Valley, who is also a real estate agent herself. I am speaking on behalf of my husband as well as myself. We had David list our house in Halifax, we signed documents on a Thursday afternoon with him to get it listed and were told it would be on the market the following day. By the end of Saturday, less than 48 hours later, we had already received 2 offers. It sold immediately, no time wasted. Of course we are quite happy with the professionalism and speed. We highly recommend David as knowing his business. - Hollie Boivion-Oliver
David, thank you for your efforts in moving our house in a slow market. Your ability to professionally and
calmly handle the issues that arose along the way was invaluable. I have made several referrals to your office as a result of your service. - Adam & April Jackson
I have retained Mr. Yetman’s services 4 times since 1998 and have been very satisfied with the service and results that he provided. In 1998 he found us a perfect family home, zeroing in on what our needs were and ensuring they were met. We moved from there in 2004 and he sold our house the very first day it was on the market. I returned to Halifax in 2015 and David once again helped me find a perfect home. I was going through a personal life transition and David was available anytime to answer question after question, always polite, always patient and always available. He has many contacts in the real estate world and provided names for lawyers, insurance, handymen, and all were reliable and competent. He also oversaw some repairs that needed completion before the sale was final as I was not in the city to do so.
Change and I had to sell this house and wanted to try renting. He was invaluable again and managed to sell my house in under 90 days over the Christmas/Winter season. Not easy to do. Again he provided me with support, guidance and was available anytime I needed him.
I highly recommend you retain the services of David Yetman and his staff. He will work diligently to ensure you are satisfied. He is approachable, easy going, hard working and highly knowledgeable about the business. I would not go to anyone else. - Robin Marecek
David sold my last home four years ago and recently nurtured us through buying our new home in July 2016. He yet again demonstrated his expert level of knowledge on not only the offer and closing process, but also structural issues, roofing, decks, heating and cooling, windows, etc.
His level of service is amazing.
- He arranged “MLS Tours” of candidate homes where he picked us up and took us through each home, pointing out both the pros and cons as it related to our particular needs and returned us back home.
- He helped us avoid purchasing a condo with a suspect reserve fund in the face of significant upcoming capital projects
- He provided the pricing strategy designed to maximize the opportunity to minimize the price…..a strategy that saved us over $12K! We loved his self-contained office where a complete offer to purchase can be prepared and sent in the time it takes to order and eat a burger.
- He guided us through the process of amending the Offer to Purchase following an undiscovered roofing issue
- He arranged for and attended all inspections – we benefited from his extensive list of contacts for home inspection, appraisal, decking and roofing, etc.
- He handled aspects of the sale and closing that saved us lawyer’s fees.
- He stayed in constant contact throughout the entire process via texting, emails and phone calls so we had complete agility to make decisions throughout the process.
- His wife Sandra was also an integral part of the team approach to our purchase.
Aside from his accommodating nature and (which made the whole process fun, even at stressful times), he has a knack for reading the needs of the customer, and addressing concerns.
As my lawyer remarked…”David knows his stuff”! Amazing, We are recommending David to all of our family and friends – very happy customers! - Scott Bronson & Kathryn Griffiths
Relocating to Nova Scotia from another province was stress free with the assistance of David Yetman and his team. My husband and I had a very restricted time frame to visit, get acquainted with the neighborhoods and purchase our home in Halifax. David took us around visiting all the areas in and out of town all the while educating us on neighborhoods, ways of life and history of this beautiful province and city. When it was time for us to make a final purchasing decision, David knew exactly what would make us happy and comfortable for our needs and zoned in on one specific neighborhood and house, which we purchased. The (stressful) process of purchase was a breeze. Mr. Yetman was always a couple of steps ahead scheduling everything from inspection of the house, referring lawyer and mortgage broker and organizing for us whom to get in touch with in order to settle in properly ( all utilities). He is an expert in his field, immensely knowledgeable and we will always trust our future sales and purchases with David and his team.
We will recommend Century 21 All Points with confidence. - Jennifer & Frederic
During the time that my property was listed with David Yetman, he was most proactive and responsive as an agent. He kept me informed as to status at all times. When I had a question, and I had several, he was right there to facilitate. When I listed the property, he took special care to photograph the property beautifully (vacant oceanfront). Thanks to his efforts, the property sold/closed within a year. I am most grateful for David's professionalism, effectiveness, and integrity.
Also important, the office is connected to excellent legal professionals who will handle the legal aspects of closing at the seller's request. This was important to me as I live in the US and was not at all acquainted with closing/taxation processes in Canada.
In short, I recommend David Yetman and his team enthusiastically! - Agelia Dumas
David, I want to thank you for the most professional and expert handling of the sale of our home at 94 Glen Eagles Dr in Hammonds Plains. My wife and I were extremely pleased with your real estate knowledge of the local market and the professional manner in which you handled our listing which resulted in a very quick sale (one week) at the price you quoted at the beginning. In particular, as you are well aware, I am not always the best listener but you were extremely tactfuland convinced me that your advice and guidance through this process was right on the mark.
This home was the eleventh home that we have sold over the past forty-five years and I can assure you that due to your knowledge, skills and personality; it was the best experience that we have encountered.
Again, please accept our sincere thanks and we wish you all the success in the future - Ron & Nikki Moore
With David as my agent I recently purchased a condominium in Dartmouth by the water. As a first time home buyer I was understandably nervous, but once I met with David my worries were alleviated, David genuinely cares about his clients and made the process go extremely smooth, even going above and beyond to help mw out with the paperwork and try to get the best location possible at the best price. In addition David also has a vast network of highly skilled professionals on call who specialize in the various aspects of property purchasing (ie Home Inspectors, Lawyers, etc). As well as his vast knowledge of the market, David knows how to put a personal touch on things, going so far as to provide "moving day survival kits" which contain everything for any situation that could arise during the chaos that is move-in day (first aid kit, toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, paper plates and all sorts of handy things), and what could quite possibly be the best homemade cookies I have ever eaten. Overall I could not recommend a more trustworthy and experienced agent and is the standard that all should be held accountable to. - Thomas Kearney
To whom it may concern;
It is my pleasure to write this letter of reference for David Yetman of Century 21 All Points.
What a great real estate agent he is!
I was trying to sell my house for the last year and ultimately a friend from Ontario advised me about David Yetman
We signed the listing on august 20th 2018 and by Sept 25th, 2018 it was sold. This is really amazing and was only possible due to his full devotion, hard work and professionalism. He was very keen on all of the details, and explained everything at each step. That made me feel very comfortable, that I am dealing with someone who knows very well what he is doing. His suggestions on where to spend money were backed by experience, and he did not ask me to spend a lot of money for no reason, in fact, it wasn't a lot of money, just the right money in the right spot, for the right reason!
I wish David all the very best in his future endeavours

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your wonderful help and kindness to me when I approached you to help me sell my Condo and move to a new place. You guided me through the process, provided me with all the options available to me, and spent special time with me to help me sell my Condo quickly and efficiently.
I will definitely recommend you to all my friends who are looking for an honest and helpful real estate person.
Once again, many thanks. - Marion Read
We bought our first home through David and he went above and beyond to make the process easy, enjoyable and stress free. His knowledge and experience made us confident that we were selecting a house that was right for us, and this thorough scrutiny of each house we visited meant there were no surprises after we put in our offer. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions, and David did an excellent job of telling us everything we needed to know, both in person and by email. We highly recommend David for anyone buying a home in Halifax. - Andy & Sarah Lilly
Yvonne and I would just like to pass on our appreciation for your quality of service that you provided us during the setup and listing of our house. As you are aware this process can be very stressful for the sellers certainly when one of them resides in a different province, but as a result of your honest and professional advice throughout the staging period the anxiety was almost non existent! Yvonne and I have sold a few houses in our time but this sale was the fastest sale so far. We have decided to continue our business with Century 21 for our purchase in Ottawa based on the success and service that we always receive. Thank you Dave for the referral to Peter in Ottawa and we will definitely continue to pass your name on to friends and military colleagues that are moving to Halifax in the near future - Yvonne & Richard Brierley
We are very happy to recommend Dave Yetman's real estate services. Being relatively new to the country and first time home buyers, Dave's knowledge of the real estate market was invaluable to us. He works with a fantastic team who take care of the process end to end and due to everyone's coordinated efforts, our home buying experience was absolutely seamless.
From the very first day, it was very evident that unlike some REALTORS® who are out there to make their commission as fast as they can, Dave actually cared about giving the right guidance to his buyers.
Dave's prompt response to our queries, his patience and knowledge in explaining every little detail was very much appreciated!
It is because of Dave, that we were the first one to view the home that we eventually bought. We were able to buy our home in a competitive situation, slightly below the asking price, without having to get into a bidding war, which is the trend in this area.
All our friends who have seen the house (even the picky ones!) absolutely love it and can't stop talking about it.
We must admit that had it not been for Dave's strong real estate acumen, we might have let go of this house in search of a better deal. We now realize what a great decision he helped us make. We wake up every day loving our beautiful home that much more and thanking Dave from the bottom of our hearts! - Pradip and Mallika
David was amazing throughout the entire process of purchasing our first home. We felt as though we could vocalize our questions as he was always attentive, engaged and supportive to all of our needs. He was professional and knowledgeable, communicating with us frequently to guide us though the process. We would recommend David as a realtor and were thankful to have had such a huge amount of support while purchasing our home. - Emily Bowden
David was nothing short of AMAZING!
His knowledge of real estate made buying my first home a pleasant experience instead of a nightmarish chore. He was always avalible to answer any questions I had or look into something for me, even though several of my reqests went beyond the scope of his job. I wholly recommend him and his services to anyone looking for a new home. - Marc & Emily Mackenzie
Just a very, very, special Thank You to Mr. David Yetman from Century 21 All Points! This gentleman now for over a year and a half kept in touch with my wife and myself over different mini homes that we were looking at purchasing on our move from Ontario to Nova Scotia. David never at any time ever lost contact with us even though in some REALTORS® find the mini home was never a money maker for them, but with David, this was never discussed or mentioned at any time. David deals with everyone the same and prices were never a problem on his commission that he would acquire. David went above and beyond for us to help make our final home come true. David was always upfront and honest as well as always staying in contact with us much to our dismay that REALTORS® in Ontario were not. If there ever was or is an award for the most honest and upfront REALTOR®, David should carry this proudly for we have never even seen or heard of a REALTOR® going through all these extra steps in the purchasing of a new home from another province in Canada. Thank you many times over for making our new home come true. - Bill & Carole Kenney
I have utilized the services of many REALTORS® over the years, and to be truthful, I have had "trust issues" with most of them, I always wondered who they were working for?
In the end I never really felt confident that it was my best interests that they had at heart. However, when dealing with David it soon became apparent who he was working for when he seemed to be passing up a sale by telling me that I shouldn't buy this particular property!
Of course, I was curious as to why, we thought it was perfect, David soon took the "emotion" out of the the transaction and we saw the beautiful swan of a property turn into an ugly duckling by looking at it objectively! Well done David! - Paul Sinclair
We first contacted David Yetman when we were in the UK and thinking about moving to Halifax, Nova Scotia. We found him extremely helpful and knowledgable and we agreed to meet him when we visited in the summer of 2015 for a tour of the City and surrounding area. David was unaware (and might still be) that we also agreed to do a similar thing with two other realtors (as being new to Canada we wanted to be sure we were receiving accurate information).
David provided us with an excellent tour and showed us several very different properties which really got us thinking. David was by far the best of the three Realtors we spoke to and he kept in contact with us regularly after we returned to the UK (but not too regularly to be a nuisance). David seemed to genuinely care that we made the right choices for the right reasons as opposed to the other two realtors who were just looking for business and to make a sale. We decided that when we moved to Halifax we would use David to help us find a property to buy.
At first we rented a property just outside Halifax and even though we had a lease for 14 months, David was prepared to show us around properties for sale straight away so we could get a feel for the market and answer our general enquiries about properties, the buying process and other general queries about the area. We must have looked at about 25 properties with David before we were even in position to buy a property. This was very useful as it helped us refine what we wanted (which had changed since we moved to Canada). David also pointed out various issues and problems with properties we looked at which were not obvious and we wouldn't have known about, and David informed us of likely costs to remedy problems which helped greatly when it came to choosing a property.
When we were finally in position to buy a property, David was excellent at negotiating and sorting out all the parts of the buying process. He handled all communications with the vendor, solicitors, property inspectors and our bank and generally made life easy for us. It was a far easier process than buying a property in the UK (even though a lot of the process was quite alien to us).
Even though we have now bought our property and are very happy with it, David continues to stay in contact and check that we are happy.
I would highly recommend David Yetman to any prospective property buyer, and especially to someone coming from overseas who is not familiar with the system in Canada. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge as a REALTOR® and knows just about everything there is about properties in Halifax and the surrounding area. - David, Danielle & Eli
We would like to convey our sincere thanks for the service you provided in the purchase of our new condo.
Like many people with busy schedules, we were pressed for time, and were attempting to coordinate the purchase from out of province.
From the initial contact, through to the final closing, it was clear you respected our limited time constraints, allowing us to acquire an excellent property in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
I must point out that we were particularly impressed with the professional, yet relaxed manner in which you addressed any and all of our questions and concerns throughout the purchase process. I can confidently say that from our experience, you truly stand above the crowd. Your approach is exemplary; yours is a model that others would do well to follow.
We are looking forward to doing business with you in the future, and would be happy to provide your name to others seeking an excellent realtor. - Cheryl & Stewart MacMillan
Thank you again for all your hard work and diligent efforts that you have put into getting us our dream house. - Harsh & Agam
We truly enjoyed the entire experience and gained valuable insights into the real estate market.
This would not have been possible without you. Your determination to work, desire to find new ways to understand the houses on the market, out of the box thinking, and personal involvement is unparalleled.
We are extremely grateful that you took the time to steer us in the right direction.
We wish you success and all the best in your current projects and future endeavours.
We would like to thank you for your support and guidance through our purchase. We could not have chosen a better real estate partner. We we're purchasing a condo in Halifax and we were in Ontario. It was a nerve racking process however you covered all the bases and kept us informed every step of the way. Thank you thank you for going above and beyond to help us and guide us. Above all from the beginning we completely trusted you as you explained that whole process and high lighted things we needed to watch for.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to a potential client.
Thanks again. - Helen & Peter
From our first meeting we both felt that you would market our property and sell it at a realistic price. Selling a home when you are 1477 road kilometres away takes good communications and confidence. You and Sandra provided that. We always felt 'in the loop' and up to date. Our home was sold in a short period of time (~ one month) at an acceptable price. - Paul & Kay Jollymore
By the time we actually met in April 2015, I had been trying to sell my house since February 2012. That’s right, three years.
We first ‘met’ via email in the early summer of 2014 when I made the decision to remove my house from the market and rent it for a year. During that rental period, you kept in touch with me – no other broker or agent did. So, when it was time to list the house again in the spring of 2015, I invited you into our home to meet and chat.
I was impressed with your savvy use of 21st century technology, your familiarity of our neighbourhood, your honesty about open houses (they don’t work), your 26 years of real estate experience and your confident manner.
Listing the property and preparing for viewings was quick and easy and I soon received an offer of purchase. You guided me through that process and kept in touch along the way. You responded quickly whether online or via phone.
You accomplished something that no other agent was able to do – you sold the house!
I have been recommending you to others and you can share this letter with others too.
Again, thanks so much. - Sheldon Sampson
It is our pleasure to recommend David Yetman as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home or listing agent. We were relocated to Nova Scotia because of work commitments. Our family situation and commuting requirements were high on the priority list for the location of our new house.
We conversed via emails and text initially, and David made notes of all our specific needs as well as our budgetary limitations. He is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale in the best areas. He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs.
We found David to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant.
We are pleased to recommend David Yetman to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Todd & Carole Gillard
Mr. Yetmans’ demeanour conveyed his experience, skills and expertise at the very onset. I found him to be very explicit when providing reasoning for any criterion that the house may or may not, offer the market. He arrived prepared with examples of similar sales within the area and throughout the sales process he kept me well informed of any/all intricacies, which offered a great deal of assurance as well.
I have recommended Mr. Yetman to friends/family since and would without question, acquire his skills to accommodate any future dealings that I might have in the HRM. I might add that he was recommended to me, by two of his colleagues in my area of the Annapolis Valley, that in itself, speaks volumes. I encourage you to seek Mr. Yetman to represent your Real Estate endeavorus; he is energetic, ethical and makes himself accessible to your needs.
I consider it to have been a pleasure to have the opportunity for Mr. Yetman to represent my best interests, the results have been impeccable. - Raymond B Hill
David Yetman handled the sales of two of my properties in the Halifax area. I had moved to another province and was not able to be hands on. David was recommended to me, and I could not have received a better recommendation. He worked tirelessly to promote the sale of my properties. With his experience and knowledge of the area and the market we were able to set a price that had my homes sold quickly, as well as being current with on-line promotions such as creating a website dedicated to my property. David answered my many questions, days, nights and weekends. I couldn’t recommend a better agent to represent your buying or selling needs. - Amy Kilbride
We used David Yetman as our REALTOR® to sell our old property (which we had tried to sell privately) and buy our new home. David proved to have expert market knowledge, giving us some great tips on what was needed to sell our home. As a result the property sold quickly and only just under the asking price.
His knowledge proved invaluable again when purchasing our new property, saving us several thousands of dollars off the asking price.
His service is extremely fast and efficient, whilst maintaining the best interests of his client to the forefront.
I would thoroughly recommend David as a REALTOR to friends, family in the future, he is a pleasure to deal with, and a true professional! - Rob & Maxine Brewer
I highly recommend you choose David Yetman as your REALTOR®. Before working with David, I had attempted to unsuccessfully sell my home myself. Sadly with the markets as they are I was not successful but once listed with David my home sold quickly with a two week closing! I had also used David to purchase this home so he knew the property and it was a perfect fit. I highly recommend David if you are either selling or buying. Heaven knows I took him all over the city to look at places from low priced to high and he never complained!
To say that David is hardworking, intelligent, warm, enthusiastic, clear thinking, punctual, considerate of my needs and short notices, is ahead of the game and has a refreshing sense of humour is the greatest understatement. David and his partner Sandra both have all of these qualities and more. Most importantly, David listens and I really feel I am not just another sale to him.
I can’t wait for their Christmas party again this year and Sandra’s cooking! - Connie Snider
David and his team were amazing to work with. Our home was a difficult home to sell given its location and need for quite a bit of "TLC", but he never gave up.
David's experience navigating the sale of a home was obvious throughout the whole process. My wife and I would recommend using David to anyone. - Jordan & Coralee Lewis
I am delighted to write this letter of recommendation for Lyndsay Hart who helped me facilitate my migration from Ontario to Nova Scotia. I was having difficulty finding an agent in my target area of Annapolis Royal, despite many Google searches. You miss one key work and you don't get the hits. I ended up calling the Halifax office for more direction. After speaking with Lyndsay I knew I had my girl!
Lyndsay worked tirelessly to get me into the condo of my dreams. Being in different provinces we communicated virtually for the viewing which was a very interesting experience! Lyndsay was so patient and detail oriented, never missing a beat, being reactive but more importantly being proactive. She led me step by step through the Nova Scotian real estate market and system which is different enough from Ontario, just in acronyms alone. Lyndsay followed yo with me to ensure I kept covered all issues dealing with a move during a global pandemic and took an interest in my experience on all levels, providing valuable information in regards to local geographical area, amenities and utilities. I've lived in Ontario for 30+ years so to me electrical power is just called "hydro", of course that's due to Niagara Falls but we rarely thinks of the origin of a name. I would have been hard pressed to find a website for NS Hydro!
In our unique relationship due to the circumstances Lyndsay went above and beyond what I would consider standard. Lyndsay made multiple trips to Annapolis Royal to get me squared away, she even left me a Survival Kit to help me keep my sanity and get me through the move on top of my quarantine in one piece! The kit was amazing and so thoughtful, the utility knife and measuring tape haven't left my side... took me 5 days to find my own! - Deborah Barker
Lyndsay Hart is dedicated, professional and very personable without being intrusive. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent. I look forward to meeting her in person once I am out of quarantine!
You made the process very easy.
Your method of getting a target on what sort of house we were looking for on Monday to show us similar homes on Tuesday was very efficient.
Your knowledge of the area and its rules and regulations was top notch, including the many tips and tricks about getting around and how to accomplish the varying tasks associated with a move.
The "final inspection box" was a very welcome asset during that first day, and the cookies were crack as you said.
All in all we're very pleased with you as our REALTOR® and highly recommend you.
Thank you again - Chris & Crystal Pilditch
After trying to sell my home privately, and being unable to secure a deal that did not fall apart on financing, I enlisted Dave Yetman of Century 21 All Points.
I would highly recommend David as your real estate agent of choice. His knowledge and accessibility were invaluable to me in selling my home. David is not one of those agents to “sign and dash”. We kept in constant communication and he was more than flexible in working around my limited free time. I was also extremely pleased at David’s electronic notification of showing process as I had a tenant in the home throughout the process.
He absolutely called me out on the value of my home – an educational but sobering process nonetheless. All in all, David is a relationship guy with an informed and frank approach to the real estate market, yet with a great sense of humour thrown in for good measure. Thanks to David & Century 21 All Points! - Scott Bronson
I want to thank you, your wife and your team for the fantastic experience we had finding a home in the Halifax area. Over the last 8 years we have moved for work 3 times and I feel my wife and I have experienced a good selection of brokers and agents, and we are an experienced client. Not all brokers are created the same and in my experience, very few offer the caliber of service you and your team do.
What stood out to me is the following:
You know your market and you care about a relationship and earning the right for repeat business. From day one there was no pressure and no urgency on us to settle, the priority was to find the right home.
You did not jump to the most expensive homes you could find which would be self-serving, instead you wanted us to see different areas with different homes in different ranges to help you and us narrow in on what we were looking for. This is a sound and meaningful approach.
You are a great negotiator. This was not about finding a home we feel in love with and scaring us into doing whatever it took to get it. You made sure we did not leave anything on the table in the negotiation process.
Your timing is impeccable. There was not one hour of the day or day of the week where we were not able to reach you. We felt we had great partner who kept us a priority. Most other REALTORS® I have worked with don't operate at the same pace you do.
You are extremely well connected. There is not one item I asked for help on where you did not "know a person" who did great work. And even better, you kept me organized on all the items I had to line up before and after move in. And you delivered the information in a web-based form which made it very convenient for me to access.
Last and most important - you are a good, honest person. That goes a long way in my book.
Three real experiences I will share that I feel "nail" the overall experience and confidence had with the Yetman team:
You and I did the searching while my wife stayed home in the GTA with my son. Because of how thorough you were, how you understood what we were looking for, and what you showed me, I was able to tell my wife with confidence we had a great agent and that there was no need to waste her time coming out. For the first time in my life my wife trusted me with a major decision like this! Ha! She had not seen the home and loved it when she did!
The selection Process you took me through was perfect for the way I operate as I am a detailed person. You walked away from 2 homes we viewed almost the moment we walked in the door, even before I expressed my thoughts. This tells me you took the time to personalize what we were looking for, you did not want a quick sale and were not hiding anything, but rather you operated with full disclosure and wanted us to be happy when all was said and done.
You covered my butt in this experience. At your suggestion you asked your wife to come out and view the home since my wife had not seen it in person. When viewing the home you and your wife found a countertop in the master bathroom which did not match the other finishings. You negotiated its replacement and quite frankly likely saved me from having to have it replaced, at my expense after close. This was going above and beyond.
David, I really cannot give you any constructive feedback. Fantastic job.
We look forward having you and your wife over as soon as we are staled in the new home. We would definitely recommend you to anyone. And IF we move again you will be the call I make to sell the home you sold us.

Earlier this year, our church began the process of selling our church-owned Pastor’s residence. We interviewed three individuals whom we felt would offer us good service and allow us to realize the desired result. Mr. Yetman was one of the three.
We found Mr. Yetman to be well versed in all areas of his specialty. He was a wonderful source of information and offered excellent service to the Building Committee of our church. He gave direction and took leadership as we worked through the red tape involved in dealing with various city departments that this particular sale required. We found him to be available at any time to answer our many questions and he attended our committee meetings to allow for the exchange of information and to respond to any concerns.
We are pleased to say that the property sold immediately upon listing and for more than the asking price. His follow-up and attention to detail made for a smooth transaction that left all parties satisfied.
We would recommend David Yetman and the services he can offer. - Rev. Leo Fletcher
Mr. Yetman is a REALTOR® with Century 21 All Points. After trying to sell my home myself, and not succeeding, I decided to give him a shot. He proved to be my best choice and sold my home in a small amount of time with a great deal of effort, on his part. I must also note that financially, he did get me what I wanted for my house.
Mr. Yetman has many years of experience, which I believe to be his biggest asset. He is professional, informative and provided a multitude of feedback throughout the short process. I have already recommended Mr. Yetman to a friend and again, he sold her house in a short period of time. I would encourage you to have Mr. Yetman on your side as he is an asset in selling your home. I am pleased to say that Mr. Yetman is a valuable part of this crazy market and I would recommend him to anyone. - Sharlene Seaman
David and his team did an excellent job in helping us find our new home in this challenging real estate market.
They were always available and willing to help. My husband and I felt like we were in good hands and were never pressured to make a decision. We felt like David was treating us like a member of his own family.
We would recommend David Yetman to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in the Halifax area. - Heidi & Leland Rast
David and his team did a great job in preparing and listing our lakeside property. The listing was done very professionally and the images were very good, which was important to me with trying to showcase the house. Market Feedback and pricing all done in connection with my wants and needs in trying to sell the property in the time frame I wanted. Overall I was pleased with David and his team. I would use his services again should the need arise. - Andres Matheson
Please do keep in touch! I would be happy to refer your services to anyone I know buying or selling. I really appreciate that you were always honest with us and very straight forward. We will remember your kind and efficient ways! Take care and all the best!
Susanne - Susanne & Sean Connors
My family and I would like to officially thank you for being our REALTOR®

You will never realize how much having you as our REALTOR® and getting us into our forever home means to us.
Thank you, to you, your wife and your TEAM! - Kerry Houghton, Robert & Lexington
Hello David! my wife and I are first time home buyers who were walking around the area and noticed the location. It looks fantastic and the listing included a means of contacting you for additional information. I will be honest, the majority of the reason I sent the email was to see what sort of things the additional information entails, as being a first time home buyer there was a lot to take in, but we haven't finished saving up a down payment yet so we're probably not worth a lot of effort on your part, a property that nice will likely sell before we're ready.
That being said, it's fantastic to see this kind of effort from you in regards to getting a home sold, I will definitely be keeping this in mind. - Dan Parker
My Dad would have been my goto in the past and unfortunately he is no longer around to help me. I felt like you took on his role and watched out for me like your own daughter. You made sure I didn't make the wrong decision on my sale or purchase and guided me in the right direction during the process. Hopefully your prospective clients will see this as the highest form of compliment a person can give. Thank you. - Heidi Fennell
We contracted David Yetman of CENTURY 21 to sell our home in Clayton Park West in December of 2015. We were very pleased with his effort, response time, local market knowledge and results in selling our home. He was able to provide recommendations to make our home more appealing to potential buyers, he knew the market well and ultimately was able to find a buyer for our home in less than 30 days, the offer was on Dec 17th and it closed Dec 29th, during a typically slow period of the year for real estate sales.
We were very pleased with David’s excellent service and results in selling our home. We would certainly recommend David for any real estate transactions - Gordon Bagnell
As an out of province landlord with a condo in Halifax I no longer felt like renting, I had spoken to David a few times over the years about selling. Every once in a while I bothered him and asked him how the market was doing and for truthful assessments of my property value in the current market. Dave was always extremely prompt, popped into my unit and checked on it for me, and gave me the truth, un-sugarcoated, exactly how I wanted it.
A few months ago I got a call from David telling me the market was heating up and if I still wanted out, now was the time. I got my ducks in a row and started things moving along to get it sold. Dave talked me into pricing the unit higher than I likely would have without his guidance and assured me it would sell quick. He also suggested I do certain renovations to the unit to have it in great sellable condition and that they would pay for themselves. He was right, I had 3 offers on my first day and my unit sold over asking. He was always very quick to respond to texts or calls and was very diligent in the listing process to ensure any questions the buyers would ask, he would already have the answer and he wouldn't need to reach out to me.
If I ever buy or sell another property in Nova Scotia, I will definitely use David again. - Steve Barrett
My husband and I would like to recommend David Yetman as an excellent real estate broker.
We began to work with him last July. At that time, we were looking for a condominium property in Halifax for our daughter who was due to begin graduate studies at Dalhousie this September. We live in Vancouver, B.C., and had only three full days in the first week of July to view properties.
From the first email, David demonstrated an unparalleled promptness, efficiency, and skill that marked our entire journey with him. He listened well, was attentive to our needs and strived to understand our likes and dislikes. We didn’t feel rushed, nor were his opinions simply about making a sale.
We found David to know the area intimately, to know the inventory available, he knew the back story on properties which was very helpful, and he had a system in place that kept up daily with any new inventory that came onto the market. That technology was user friendly and enabled him to begin compiling a list of properties that were of interest to us prior to our arrival.
His level of Communication, organization and service was well beyond industry standards. He was also conversant and adept with the technologies that simplify and speed along a real estate purchase made at a distance. Additionally, he had experience and knowledge of all the challenges we would face, and he expertly guided us through the entire process. We established a list of 7 properties to view prior to departure from Vancouver and our purchase offer was made and finalized before we returned home.
When we found the right home for our daughter, David helped us close the deal, negotiate favourable terms, and was there to assist us until we had the keys in our hand! It was a great comfort to have our daughter move into her new home September 1, a week ahead of beginning her program.
In short, David is the model of real estate professionalism, he is a likeable and friendly person, he's easy to work with, and we wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again in the future. - Deborah & Bill Salh
After a series of unforeseeable events it was time to sell the house I had grown up in and the house that my parents had built. I was away for university when the responsibility fell to me to take care of the property, and it was an extremely stressful time in my life to balance managing a house and taking classes over an hour away. Over Thanksgiving weekend of 2015, a good friend of mine suggested that I contact the Realtor that his parents had known for almost his entire life. The next week I got a phone call from David Yetman and the journey of selling the home began to accelerate rapidly. David walked me step-by-step through the process, informing me of what was being done and teaching me about how we could determine a price, make it look its best for viewings, and how it would be marketed to the world. Although this was a very daunting andsightly scary thing for a 22 year old with no previous real estate experience to tackle, David turned the process into a series of "little bites" - tasks easy enough to swallow - and within a month I had accepted an offer I was more than happy with. I feel immensely lucky to have found someone that could help me manage this property while removing the stress and the worry that came with it. I am grateful for an experience that of a lifetime, one that I am sure will be invaluable for me and the future, and I am thankful for the opportunity it has granted me to continue studying without the constant worry of a house that needs to be managed.
Thanks David! - Colin McGuire
Three years ago our daughter started university in Halifax, and we considered purchasing a place instead of renting. It was then that we first met David. We had a few viewings, but decided the time wasn't right for us, and opted to rent instead. David, of course, was understanding and never once made us feel we had wasted his time. We knew at some point we would revisit the idea of purchasing, when our son was ready to graduate high school. And so, we contacted David again earlier this summer. He remembered us immediately ,which was reassuring, and then quickly got us set up online. We had some viewings, and each time there wasn't any pressure. We always felt David was advocating for us, and that he would answer our questions honestly. We finally settled on a condo, which was one David had found for us, and the days that followed went smoothly. We live two hours away from Halifax, which can make all the details of closing a little more stressful. David took care of many things for us in our absence, and it was greatly appreciated. We feel fortunate that we met him, somewhat randomly, three years ago, and would not hesitate to work with him again in the future. - Shayne & Bruce Moore
We have been clients of David Yetman at Century 21 for approximately 2 years. You might think that is a rather long stretch but our situation was somewhat unique. We were living in Hong Kong and we were trying to decide where to retire. When we decided to move to Halifax we began a web search for an agent. I combed through several agencies and multiple profiles until we read about David from his other clients. I reached out to a few agents and their response--give our timeline--was lukewarm. This wasn't the case with David. We made initial contact with David via email in early 2016. We explained that our intended return date was not going to be until June, 2018. Despite this, he did not tell us to 'go away' and come back when the time was closer. He understood that we needed to learn a lot about Halifax. While I had been a student in Nova Scotia in the early 1980s we did NOT really know Halifax at all. We also had no idea about what neighbourhood we wanted, we did not even know if we wanted a condo or a house. We thought a condo would suit our lifestyle but basically we were starting from complete scratch. During this time David was unfailingly patient. He provided us with resources to learn about Halifax and the surrounding area. He answered our HUNDREDS of questions quickly and when there were sometimes no answers to be given he was honest about that too, encouraging us to be patient and let the process work. Despite a major time difference David would Facetime with us to answer questions and give us all of the answers about the process as quickly as he possibly could. Or, sometimes he would just encourage us to be patient!
In the summer of 2017, we came for an initial 'look around'. His team were aware that we were really just trying to sort some basic things out like: where in the Halifax area should we live? What kind of house/condo did we want to live in? etc. During that week we managed to learn that we wanted a house. We managed to learn that we did not want to live too far away from amenities such as shopping and entertainment. While we did not buy our house then we did manage to learn a lot and it helped us tremendously. They did not give us any pressure whatsoever. We never felt like we had to rush into anything. We did 'ramp up' our search considerably over the 2017-2018 years and finally in March of 2018 we came to Halifax to seriously look to buy. Again, David was patient, beyond helpful and very honest with us in terms of asking the right questions to help us to make a good choice. We found a house we both liked and we made an offer on it which was accepted very quickly. We moved in the end of July and, so far, we absolutely LOVE our house and our new neighbourhood is perfect for us. On closing, David and Sandra (his wife) gave us a 'survival kit' which was incredibly helpful as it contained all the things you never think of...a really nice touch. While it was a long process, it ended well!
Now, you know our context here is why we recommend David Yetman as your agent:
1.) He has been nothing but completely transparent/honest with us the entire time. We committed to him as our agent and never once considered going elsewhere. Never questioned or doubted his expertise.
2.) Timely: every question we have had was answered quickly and with enough detail. Every request for information about the process was responded to quickly and accurately.
3.) He thinks of things we did not think about. For example, in our process of sorting where to live he pointed out the advantages and disadvantages of each area. He helped us consider the type of house we would want and acknowledged our preferences for things given our age/stage of life.
4.) He helped us set up things for utilities etc. these were things we would have missed or not known about as people who had never lived in Nova Scotia before.
5.) He is very supportive of the fact that we took--basically--two years to actually buy a house...did we mention patience? There was NEVER any pressure to buy. We took a LONG time.
6.) He respected our choices but he would also point out things that we may not have considered.
7.) His 'surround' support is outstanding: things like his team of people working to support buyers and his website for resources such as lawyers, locksmiths, window people etc.
8.) During the process of purchasing the house David recommended the specific inspections we should complete as part of our offer to purchase.
9.) During the entire process David NEVER showed any sort of bias or place any influence on us for choosing a style of house/area etc. He DID provide factual information to help us along.
Finally, we have had such confidence in David and his team that we recommended him to our son who is in the process of selling a property. If you have any questions for us about the process of working with David and his team we are only happy to help answer them. - Nancy & John Dyck
David provided us with incredible knowledge of the market, as well an great work ethic to help us reach our real estate goals. David stuck with us through a few seasons when we had our property on the market. Throughout the process he always provided us with regular updates and suggestions. In the end he delivered exactly what he promised and took care of many of the smaller details in our sale that were really appreciated and not expected. I would highly recommend David for any of your real estate needs.
In addition, I have never met anyone who always answers the phone or responds as fast as David - Neil Horne
David Yetman has assisted us with the sale and purchase of two homes and we have been very happy with his assistance
Most recently he helped us to sell a property in an area where many homes have been very slow to sell. (Often greater than a year)
Dave uses current technology to the maximum benefit of his clients. He ensured that our property was viewed by as many buyers as possible by using social media and YouTube and he makes signing documents convenient and accessible using his iPad.
Dave has provided us with excellent advice throughout the process. Dave stayed in touch with us and was always available to answer our questions. Dave ensures that he has very current knowledge of the local and global real estate market.
Dave provided us with contact names for services that we required during our move and we have been pleased with the services they have provided. The building inspector provided a very thorough inspection and Dave suggested we have a sewer inspection which showed an issue that required repairs, Dave monitored the work closely and gave us regular updates on the progress.
Dave provided a very helpful moving checklist to help us ensure that we were ready when the time to move came.
We would highly recommend David Yetman’s knowledge and expertise to anyone requiring the assistance of a real estate agent.
We have personally recommended Dave to two of our co-workers who were having difficulty selling their homes with their current agent. We would not hesitate to do so again
Excellent Real Estate, very pleased with Dave's assistance - Joe & Patricia LeClair
