Marvin was the primary agent we worked with, but Dave is also amazing! He helped us through an incredibly challenging part of the deal while Marvin was on vacation. Marvin and Dave work seamlessly as a team and they even sound a lot alike on the phone. Marvin and Dave provided a fabulous crew of supporting professionals, including a wonderful financial broker and inspector. Beyond everything else, Marvin and Dave were authentic and a beacon for integrity. These qualities were foundational to us as we were negotiating so many unknowns. We feel incredibly fortunate and appreciative to have found such wonderful agents and we could not recommend them more highly.
If you get the chance to work with Dave & Marvin you are fortunate indeed. They are knowledgable, supportive, honest & they shifted my perception about Realtors. Integrity seems to be a rare quality in the profession and they have it!
Dave and Marvin are true real estate professionals. They are honest, operate with integrity and work hard to meet their clients needs. Their knowledge of the local and national markets as well as their negotiation skill make them a winning choice when selecting a realtor.
Dave Anderson was great to work with with. Dave and Marvin are both really nice guys. When we thought the dish washer door was broken in our new house them came over and figured out the problem. Ordered the broke piece and fixed it. Your in good hands with them.
This team is trust-worthy, competent and amazing! Marvin and Dave were chosen to assist us during our relocation to Southern California. As absentee owners, we needed realtor representation that we could trust to communicate and deliver with our best interests in mind. The choice was clear to us from the outset and the outcome (a very happy one) speaks volumes about their competence. Marvin and Dave know the market, are unusually astute and fearless negotiators who led us through all of the details with a gentle nature that calmed us at each step in the process. They took care of our inspections, all repairs and even had staging furniture rented that we could use to vacation at our home while it sold. And sell it did, for the right price and at the right time! It is nice to know that integrity counts when it is most needed. Always. Thanks Marvin and Dave.
After seller rejected a fair initial offer with no counter, Dave did a remarkable job negotiating a deal acceptable to both parties and making it happen! If I ever buy/sell again in this area, there's no doubt Dave will be my guy!
We used Marvin when we were looking for a rental property and have nothing but good things to say. He made the process actually bearable. He was there for all our questions and followed through with the answers. It was his knowledge and persistence that resulted in our success in finding and purchasing what we were looking for. Thank you Marvin and Dave

Marvin was very helpful to me guiding me through my first rental property purchase. Was honest and up front. I was so happy with the experience that Anderson Christie is now managing the property I purchased.
Dave and Marvin are the coolest agents in town, hands down. When my fiancee and I decided to buy our first home, I was apprehensive about the whole process. Seeing houses, dealing will people, bidding, negotiating, getting offers rejected, securing a mortgage, etc. All that junk. It's not fun. Marvin and Dave were an absolute pleasure to work with and made the experience significantly less sucky. Almost enjoyable even. They're personable and easy-going while also being honest and professional. Most importantly, they are committed to getting the job done. We faced one of the most difficult markets for first-time home buyers, and lost out to all-cash bids time and time again. These guys were endlessly patient and eventually landed us in a great home at a great price through some sort of awesome realtor voodoo magic trick. I don't know who else could have made it work out so well for us. Seriously, A+ job, top-of-the-line, 10/10, 2 thumbs up. Thanks again, guys!
I used Anderson Christie based on a recommendation from another satisfied client of theirs and I can join that list. Their slogan says it all..."Superior Service.... Results Delivered". I highly recommend them!
I have been working with Anderson Christie for over a year now. They have been so patient as we put in offer after offer. It has been hard to compete with the prices here and many cash offers....especially in this competitive market. They both have been positive, determined and hopeful; "We WILL find you your home"...Marvin would say. Well they were right because we are in escrow on a sweet house on the Upper Westside! Marvin and Dave are great! I honestly cannot say enough about them. They are both intelligent, extremely knowledgeable about the current (and past) market conditions, and excellent communicators whether that be text, email or calls. In addition they are super savvy, professional, positive, follow through with what they say they'll do and they are well-liked in town. If ever people ask who my realtor is, the response after I say their names is always very genuine and happy followed up by something like..."I love those guys!". Finally they are always on time, fun and just solid good family guys. There's no one else I'd rather work with and I'm proud to say I'm a client of theirs.
Dave and Marvin were very genuine and knowledgeable agents. They helped me navigate through the entire process and found an excellent first home for me and my family. I have since referred them on several occasions and will definitely contact them again if I decide to sell. Thank guys!
I highly recommend Anderson Christie. Great local knowledge. Took the time to understand my goals and what I was looking for. Fast and responsive, and overall great customer service. Very pleased with their services, would not hesitate to use them again.
Dave and Marvin were fabulous partners in helping us purchase a home in Santa Cruz. We live on the East Coast and they went out of their way to do the legwork we couldn't do for ourselves. They even made visits to the county for us to check ordinances that might impact our plans to build an ADU on the property. They were always responsive, helpful and ready with advice when we needed them most. They were concerned with our satisfaction, both before and after the sale. We couldn't recommend them more highly.

Marvin Christie and Dave Anderson guided my wife through every step of buying our first home. We were already working with another realtor and left them to work with Anderson Christie. We're really glad that we did. They got us into a beautiful home in our dream neighborhood.
I highly recommend Dave Anderson and Marvin Christie! Although I was only selling a small condominium, they treated me and the process with respect, and were always responsive to my questions and concerns. They provided sound advice regarding how to prepare my condominium for sale, and overall made the process simple and straightforward for me.
Anderson Christie is a Real Estate firm that is professional, gets the job done, gets you in your dream home and still has a beer with you at the end of the day. If you are selling your home, they make you feel as if you are their only client. They work with very high end vendors to provide top notch photos and amazing videos that will blow your expectations away. Buying or selling, these guys are the real deal!!
Dave and Marvin have a very clear understanding of the Santa Cruz market and in particular the West-side where my home was located. They carefully evaluated similar homes with square footage and bed and bath counts and reviewed that information with me to establish a good asking price for market. They encouraged the timing of selling my house based on available inventory and the lack of competition during that particular time and emphasized the demand for a home like mine. Their marketing materials were beautiful and compelling. Open houses were very well attended and both Marvin and Dave were available on site to answer questions since traffic was so high and the property is big enough to warrant 2 realtors vetting questions. They negotiated with the buyers very well and supported me in the price I wanted to get for my home. I would use them again because they can ramp up quickly, are very well connected in town and have a strong reputation for being very active in their own business and are professionals from start to finish. I absolutely felt like they were in my corner and watching out for what was best for me.
We would highly recommend Anderson Christie to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent their home. These two gentleman are exactly who you want searching for your perfect home and battling a great deal for you. We actually met them during an open house and liked them so much we asked them to help us look for one that better fit our needs. They know the Santa Cruz area VERY well and are beyond knowledgable, honest and hardworking realtors. As two out of state physicians, we needed a realtor that was looking out for our best interest, not just their percentage...AND were able to be our eyes/ears from miles away. They always made themselves available (literally answered the phone at 11p on a Friday night) during our purchase and went above and beyond their duties on multiple occasions. We were fortunate enough to have their guidance in purchasing our home and enjoyed our experience with their team so much that we asked them to take over our property manamgent needs as well. Since the day we had them rent our home we haven't heard a peep from our chosen renters and they have been very happy tenants as well. You will never find two more genuine people to represent your home OR help you buy one. We have recommended them to all of our friends/family in the area. Best wishes in your house hunt, it's a challenging journey that is well worth it and will be better with Anderson Christie--I promise!!
Dave and Marvin were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout our home buying experience. They provided the perfect blend of local knowledge, tenacity, and thoughtfulness needed to find the right opportunity for us and get the deal done. We would definitely work with them again and highly recommend them for anyone serious about finding their dream home.
Dave and Marvin were absolutely wonderful to work with! They handled both the sale of our house and the purchase of a new one. They were organized, through, and prompt. They are also very nice and fun! We are newer to the area and they really helped us work through locations and our transition. I highly recommend the team!
Both Marvin and Dave were great to work with; professional and personable with great local knowledge. Additionally, their solid professional relationships helped to land the property that fit my criteria. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Our experience with Anderson Christie was excellent. They gave us sound advice on the best way to market and price our home. Their professional staff made up a marketing video and flyer that still has our friends asking why we sold (we were downsizing). Our home sold for the full asking price in two days and generous terms negotiated on our behalf because of the quick sale. They also represented us in the purchase of our new home at a below asking price in a very competitive market. Our next sale and purchase will be handled by Marvin and Dave of Anderson Christie.
Recently purchased a townhouse using Anderson Christie and it was great. Dave Anderson was our agent and he knew the area well and help explain all the procedures and processes to us. He help even sort out some of the County mistakes and helps us and them fix them. We would highly recommend Anderson Christie to anyone looking for a home in the Santa Cruz area.
The marketing savvy Marvin and Dave bring is of great value to anyone buying or selling a property. Good attention to detail, and responsive to my questions and concerns. Thanks Guys...!
We used Anderson Christie as first time sellers! They make a great team, always work together and balance each other very well! My husband and I felt comfortable and informed the entire way. We look forward to using them in the future.
When I decide to look into buying my first house I called David Anderson. I knew him previously through other local business.
David met with me promptly after I expressed my interests. He referred me to a broker that was able to accomodate my financial needs and get me approved for a mortgage I was able to afford.
Upon beginning my search I was immediately faced with prices out of my budget based on where I wanted to live, between Santa Cruz and Aptos. I had only been looking for three days when a great property appeared in my search on David's website. It was in Aptos and it was within my budget. David was able to schedule a showing that day. Everything about the property met my needs. David explained the urgency of the situation as the house had only been back on the market for two days and was priced considerably lower than its worth.
Within 24 hours, David guided me through putting together an offer with all required documents. Approximately three days later the seller accepted my offer. As a short sale, David cautioned me not to get my hopes up and to continue my search.
Over the next weeks David checked in with me regularly; he provided me with updates from the sellers agent, the bank, as well as the market trends.
Not three months after my offer was accepted, David called to tell me the bank had accepted the short sale and I was officially in escrow. It was smooth sailing from there and David was there the entire way.
Buying my first house was easy and rewarding. David Anderson's knowledge in local Santa Cruz real estate, prompt replies and actions, as well as his ability to connect with seller's and their agents makes him the best choice in real estate in Santa Cruz County.
I refer all my friends and family to David.
They worked diligently and as it turned out- our buyer was right under their eyes-
The best kind of deal is always mutually beneficial; and I think this one is a good example. I am very happy in my new digs (Marvin represented me) and I know my buyers are thrilled.
You won't find a smarter more innovative or harder working person in real estate.
I highly recommend Sue Ellen and the Anderson Christie Group for your project. You will not be disappointed.
I had the privilege of working with David Anderson while purchasing my first investment property in Santa Cruz, CA. Dave’s performance as a realtor was nothing short of perfection. He spent countless hours showing me properties, answering questions and fighting to make a difficult sale a reality. One of the most impressive things about Dave was not just his knowledge of the business, but the fact that if he didn’t know the answer to my question he didn’t BS me. He found the answer quickly and got back to me.
