I have known Dave since 2000 – we originally met at a USC Entrepreneur event and he was a successful entrepreneur. His current endeavor as a Realtor with Girling REIG and the neighborhood indices they have developed, effectively exhibit his entrepreneurial spirit and amazing knowledge of his marketplace. I trust Dave and the team at Girling REIG to represent me in any of my real estate needs. ROB UKROPINA (2015)

Managing Director, Black Diamond Ventures

I have utilized Dave Girling to assist my clients and me personally in the buying and selling of residential properties. I am a real estate lawyer and Dave is my “go to” broker. He has earned my unqualified support. He tells it straight, no spin. Dave created a methodology for evaluating price changes in various neighborhoods in the Newport Beach market. His experience in the financial services industry and his judgment are major assets. His service orientation is second to none. Strong negotiator. Keeps his clients advised. ROBERT MATTHEWS (2016)

Real Estate Investor

Dave and Bing Girling just sold my expensive home on Balboa Island for $4.2mm. They were good promoting and advertising it, were present EVERY time there was a showing, and negotiated the best deal for me. Further, they managed nearly all the extra repair work requested by the buyers, with vendors they knew that were timely and cost effective. Good to work with, I recommend using them. KAREN JOHNSON (2014)


Dave and his team worked diligently and acted professionally to sell our home in Newport Beach. My wife and I appreciate their attention to detail and the knowledge they have of the local real estate market. Although we are now living in Arizona, we would absolutely use them to find us a home if we ever moved back to Newport Beach. Well done and thanks. DICK & MARY FULLER

Homeowners, (Sold N.B. condo for $775k in 2014)

Dave is one of the more knowledgeable and successful Realtors in the Newport Beach area. Not only is he professional, personable and well-versed in the transactional facets of a real estate deal, but he has a unique grasp of real estate values and the economics of a real estate purchase. While Dave has assisted me in many of my real state transactions in the past, he recently found the ideal home for me and my family on Balboa Island. We could not be happier with our new home and the job that Dave did for us. MIKE ARRIGO (2013)

Balboa Island Resident

David was a pleasure to work with. We had specific needs and timing that had to be met in the process. Dave was a tremendous help to us as we worked through the process. We would absolutely work with David again in the future. RICH & KAY FLIERI
