Dave has been very considerate and patient during this big change in our lives. Having lived in our house and raised a family for over the last 18 years, he demonstrated a quality of being both understanding and knowledgeable while providing direction and feedback. He is not too timid to tell you things you may not want to hear, but always directing the transactions in your best interest. We have felt on cruise control during this entire endeavor, and even when we do have a concern, Dave either provides an answer or the steps in the direction to satisfy our concerns. He doesn't sugar coat things which allows for maximum marketability and profitability, but does so in a very kind and professional demeanor. He has a remarkable way of putting your fears at ease, and you actually sense his enthusiasm for you while even making suggestions on improvements or conceptual ideas to create a home from your new house.
I would recommend Dave to anyone who likes straight answers and devotion to helping his clients make the right purchase rather than simply a quick one. We can't wait to begin this next phase in our lives and create new memories in our next house, while we will always treasure our memories in our old one. ~ Dan Iorio, Waterloo, IL
Dave is one stop shopping for perfection. By far the most amazing realtor on the plant..! ~ Jason Cunningham - O¿Fallen Illinois
I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Dave Rusteberg. Throughout the past several months, Dave has been there every step of the way. He has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that he was just trying to sell me a house, but that he was a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my family. He helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. The best part about working with Dave was that he was always more focused on answering my questions, giving me good advice, and finding homes that met my needs than he was on closing a deal. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home. Thanks again to Dave Rusteberg and CENTURY 21 Advantage Real Estate, Inc. for being such a pleasure to work with. ~ Jody Worley, Waterloo
Dave is incredibly knowledgeable, and always quick to respond to questions. He provided guidance, and made me feel comfortable with my decisions. In addition to that, hes a hard worker and made the house buying process easy for me. ~ Chris Singer, Columbia
David Rusteberg was our agent 11 years ago when we searched and purchased our current house and we were impressed with him back then. He again exceeded our expectations when we had an opportunity to purchase a property that was next our house. He acted quickly and professionally which, in my opinion, lead to us being able to secure the property without having to compete with other offers.
We cannot say enough good things about David Rusteberg-he even helped out the seller's agent with some ideas about another property. Above and beyond in my opinion. ~ Mat, Fairview Heights, IL
Professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and prompt in responding to questions.
Dave was very professional, friendly, helpful and informative. Happy to recommend him to other potential clients. ~ Fr. Carl E. Scherrer, 424 Terry Dr., Columbia, IL
Dave is an outstanding agent and helped facilitate a pleasurable home buying experience. Through exceptional communication, my wife and I were kept up to date throughout the buying process and with the use of online signature software increased the speed of document transactions.
Dave Rusteberg's professionalism and personal investment to his clients is above reproach. He has become our go-to agent for family and friends if ever they are in the market to sell or buy a home.
Having spent six years in our previous home having Dave by our side during the purchase of our home, made everything better. If you ask my wife how our first walk through went she would tell you I saw very little of the home as my conversation with Dave became just as important as her finding our "last home". It was indeed a pleasure to have him in our corner and Dave ensured we were informed buyers.

Dave took on a home sale in a difficult location,but was confident of a good outcome for us. He posted great pictures that was appealling to our buyer. We experienced a difficult time from the buyers lenders, and Dave was a real pro through it all,even setting aside vacation time for us. Thank you Dave. ~ James and Pamela Wall. Cahokia Il.
Dave did an excellent job of selling my home. I was moving out of state and Dave knew I had a very personal connection to my home, yet needed to sell. He juggled the personal and business aspects perfectly! ~ Holly Rick, Waterloo
We could not be happier with how Mr Rusteberg handled every aspect of our home buying experience. He is knowledgeable, organized and easy to work with. He is excellent at what he does and makes you feel like a priority. Our experience was very positive in what can be a very stressful transition. Having a talented realtor was key. ~ Jami Webb, Columbia

Dave steered us past every obstacle and got us top dollar offers in the first week! ~ Bryan Phillips, Columbia Il
Dave Rusteberg was very accessible when I had a question. He ALWAYS got back to me in a timely way. He is thorough in every area - explaining the process of selling our home and which stage we were currently in; pictures were fantastic. He is kind and stays professional during times when parts of the process were out of his direct control - yet didn't hesitate to "make the call" (maybe even more than once!) to get an answer.
I have recommended him to 2 of my friends who plan to list their homes soon. ~ Pam & Jim, Columbia IL

I have used Dave as an agent and I have referred people to Dave. Our sale was very challenging but we worked together to get it done. The good agents know how to get the job done even when things don't go as planned!
