Thankyou David! - 17 Aug 2016 David was extremely helpful during the recent purchase of our new home. The biggest compliment i can give David is his efficiency. David replied to all of our contacts nearly immediately and was very flexible with our questions and inspection requests. David was also very efficient with our final negotiation of price with the deal wrapped up very quickly. In addition he continued this high level of service post-sale to assist with any of our final questions and requests. I'd have no hesitation in recommending David.

Very efficient, excellent service - 24 Oct 2016 David, was very professional for our recent purchase , for a young gentleman David knows his stuff. From the first time my wife and meet David we were very impressed with his knowledge and understanding of our needs without forgetting those of the vendor. David has excellent communication skills,, with this the service we received from David was by far superior than another Real. Estate Agent we have ever dealt with, yes there has been many. I am sure David will be very successful in his chosen career of an real estate agent. Even after purchase of our new house, when we had questions for David, no matter what time it was, David did not hesitate to assist us by answering our concerns/ questions. David would always return our calls promptly if for some reason he could not answer the call. In closing, if you are using Ray White Reality Forster, ask for David.

David & Tracey

Sale of our proprety - 17 Jan 2017 David Hochkins was very professional and honest in the sale of our property. He would keep in contact with us in and out of business hours which we thought was fantastic and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Mark & Fiona

David Hochkins - 19 Jan 2017 David was great to deal with when we were buying our property. He was always contactable and extremely helpful. He knows his stuff but he also knows what customer service is all about which unfortunately is not the case for some people in the industry. He made the whole process very easy and smooth sailing. Thanks again David!

Outstanding agent - 24 Jan 2017 I have now bought from, and sold with, David so have experience of him on both sides. He is very professional, with great communication and negotiating skills. I know he is one of, if not the, most successful agent in Forster, and has won many awards for his sales. I have recommended him strongly to other locals and recommend him to readers of this review. You won't find a better or nicer agent to deal with.


One of the best R/E personnel - 28 Feb 2017 David was honest, genuine, open, repectful and friendly. Communication was excellent: he kept us updated regularly and always returned our calls if unable to answer immediately. No question was left unanswered. He was able to secure a good selling price for our property. Most highly recommended.

Great Agent - 30 Mar 2017 David is a great agent we would recommend him highly to anyone who is looking at selling their home He was amazing with the selling of our house he was always on the ball and his communication with us was fantastic we always knew what was happening with our property

Norman & Kathaleen

Pleasant agent - 06 Apr 2017 We found David to be very pleasant and helpful. His local knowledge was good, and he appeared to be very interested in doing the best job he could. His manner was respectful and welcoming.

One of the best - 09 Apr 2017 David Hochkins stated he could achieve a much higher price than I was offered to me by other agents and after not believing him, I agreed to pay a higher commission if he could achieve it. After having 3 buyers rescind their initial offers, he managed to sell my property to the 4th buyer for $9K more than the previous 3 were going to pay and $19K more than the other agents suggested it would sell for. I am blown away by the magic this man has managed to perform in what was becoming a tougher market to sell my property in by the day. Thanks David.

David W

I recommend David as an agent for selling a house - 11 Apr 2017 David was selected as he showed an excellent understanding of buyer behaviour and selling tactics

Bryce J

Lovely man - It was a real pleasure to deal with him. - 13 Apr 2017 David is an extraordinary and multiskilled person. I found him intelligent, realistic and believe it or not, honest. He was always careful with all aspects of statutory obligations and never wavered from meeting what was expected of him as our agent, or as the buyers' agent. He found a buyer within a few months and that was pretty quick for our area. A total pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend David and I see the wisdom in having an exclusive agent, at least for a set period of time long enough for him to do his magic!

Viola H

Great agent - 18 Apr 2017 We have found david to be enthusiastic, pleasing professional manner and would re omnend him to family and friends.

Kevin & Joan

David Hochkins was an absolute pleasure to do business with during our purchase. - 08 May 2017 My husband and I were looking for a unit within a 100 metre walk to the Forest Beach and with uninterrupted views to the ocean. We had a budget, as we were wanting to get into the Forster market but, we were not ready to move to the area for some years to come. David understood our needs and help negotiate a fair price that both the vendor and we were happy with at the final outcome! David's after sale follow up has been amazing, helping organise a tenant though his office, working with Jess to ensure we were happy!

Michelle & Chris

Totally committed, and highly recommended - 29 May 2017 I am most impressed by David's handling of the sale of my unit for the asking price in a short period of time and have no hesitation in highly recommending his services. I am looking forward to dealing with him again in the sale of another property that I have just listed with his agency.

Marion M

He was just so natural and knew me and what I wanted. He looked after my interest as a seller as well as he knew and looked after the buyer.

Eunice S

David Hochkins conducted sale of property with an excellent achievement

Elvera B

Very confident young fella that practiced what he preached , had a few potential buyers already lined up the day after it was on their books , the 2nd one actually went through and bought my place and this was after 2 years of trying other agents in Forster / Tuncurry in a tough mid coast market

Mark G

Buying a house in today's fast pace climate can be daunting. (We actually made an offer on the first viewing with David). He was quick to understand our needs and navigated our path smoothly. He knew the history of the market, was well acquainted with the vendor and negotiated between us with no difficulty. We were able to communicate with David whenever we had a query and he was able to give us his qualified advice and assurance at each stage. Thanks David.

Margaret & Robert

David was extremely helpful and approached everything he did in a professional manner


The guy said he'd get the job done and did it in record time. Nothing but admiration and respect for the guy. Nothing was a hassle for him, day or night. He was available any time for any questions.


Dave was sensational. We were coming up from Sydney and he always made sure that he was available on our limited time. Down to earth and honest. We met a few agents during the process of looking for a house and David was a standout from the start. If the needs arises to buy or sell again, David will be the first person i call.

Chris M

It was a pleasure to deal with David. He was very professional and always offered his assistance. Dave was very prompt in responding to our questions and was also very prompt and professional in any following up that was required. Both myself and my wife would certainly deal with David again. David is in our view an asset to Ray White Real Estate.


David is an enthusiastic, polite and warm salesperson. I found him very proactive and approachable. His negotiating skills were very good and he was very easy to deal with. I would have no hesitation in buying from him again, or giving him the agency for a sale.

Anne P

Highly rate David. Property sold within the timeframe David had indicated. Negotiation with the Vendor to obtain the best outcome was a focus of his process. Would highly recommend competence and credibility.

Adam K

Been looking for ages and ages, years actually. Sent all the agents mad, as apparently, we (me, wife) can be difficult, it just had to have the right feel and most didn`t. David said come look at this house, it`s perfect for you. I wasn`t in the mood, finally relented, had a viewing, had a 2nd viewing and did the offer thing all within 24 hours. David acted so diligently, quickly and communicated well with us. Had no hassles, it`s all been smooth and easy, perfect. Thanks David.

Judy R

Thanks David Hochkins for a sale in a difficult situation.The property was a distance away yet he was obliging and handled in a competent manner.

Mike W

Competent, Professional and a good negotiator with the Vendors interests at heart.

Shane N

David was fantastic. Very helpful with all our requests. He had great knowledge of the house and the area as well.

Joe & Sally

David was a true professional and always was completely honest with me. He sold my apartment 39 000 above what i expected.


We are very happy that David brought the right vendor and purchaser together at just the right time with the right house

Richard Jenna

During our purchase at Forster keys we found David to be of the highest standard of professionalism and ethics. During our dealings with David nothing appeared too hard with our enquiries and were dealt with as soon as possible. His communication was excellent during the process and was of a friendly and high standard. Because of this we would have no hesitation in recommending David Hochkins as an agent.


I found David to be personable without the usual hi pressure Real Estate Salesman stereo type approach. He was pretty much spot on with the market value and I am happy with the result. If you are after a no nonsense professional then I recommend David. Many thanks to him and the team at Ray White Forster

Jane S

My wife and I found David to be a well mannered, extremely polite and knowledgeable young man. Right from the start he was open and honest with us which we greatly appreciated. His negotiation skills were outstanding and he managed to 'seal the deal' so to speak, when we purchased our new property to what I would think was an amicable price for both the vendor and us as the buyer. Until we met David we were going to list our property with another agent (one we had dealt with previously), but we both liked David so much we listed our property with him and Ray White R/E. It sold in 10 days and for the price we wanted. What more can I say. We both wish David well in the future.

Colin & Val

David was very professional in the purchase of 8 Elizabeth Parade. He was knowledgeable of the area and put in a lot of effort in with my husband Brian to make him understand that while having to do a bit of work on the property was going to be worth it in the end because of its location. This in turn let us achieve a great property on the water which was always our dreams. David always got back to us and explained the process of purchasing along the way so we always knew what to expect next. We were very impressed with his negotiating skills as he was very mindful of both purchaser and vendors financial situation.

Brian and Wendy

David's communication, advice and assisted negotiation skills were essential to this sale completing successfully. The experience was flawless. Thank you David. I would write a longer review but work pressures demands prevent that.

Craig S

Unique Approach - 08 Oct 2016 David offered a unique approach to his services and demonstrated a great communication through the whole process. David went above and beyond his brief to ensure both parties were informed and content. We were very satisfied with the outcome and would recommend David to others.

Dan B

David seemed to care about what we thought requesting our input and working with us. David was level headed treating us with respect and keeping it real

Colin & Jenny

David was very professional and courteous and easy to deal with. He always returned phone calls in a timely manner. Have only answered "undecided" to the question below of would we use Ray White again because we dont live in the area... but if we did we would certainly consider it.

Mark F

David was excellent in his sales negotiations. After 7 months on the market with Ray White, David joined the team and had 2 offers for the property within 4 weeks of joining the agency.


David is a very well spoken, energetig and enthusiastic person whom I have dealt twice now and he comes highly recommended. He is also upfront and is a person with integrity. I would use him again anytime. John Schep Wharf st Tuncurry.

John Schep

After having been the holder of a Real Estate and Business Agents license from 1977 and a Strata Managing Agents license from 1996 each up 2004, I considered that the way in which I was taught the business and the necessary ethics thereby to be second to none. I consider that this gave me an ability to pick a good man when I met one. David filled this requirement in my mind when we first met and his loyalty to his company and clear and concise manner of presenting the process as per Ray White Pty.Ltd. was exemplary. We would certainly recommend the company and the man.

From our initial meeting, David displayed professionalism, integrity, empathy and a manner that made a potentially difficult process a far easier one. His ability to work with us through the process enabled us to achieve our dram of purchasing a home. As a representative of Ray White Forster David exemplifies qualities including honesty, commitment, professionalism and integrity which I am certain that are traits that all in your industry aspire to. He is an absolute asset to your organisation. If any of my workmates, family or friends need the services of a real estate agent, I will be recommending Ray White Forster based primarily on the service I received from David.


A big thanks to David from Ray White Forster for doing such a good job in helping us with the purchase of our new home! David was not only knowledgeable and professional, he was also just a really nice guy! David went above and beyond in his service and we would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a new home. Thanks again!
