Read what our customers have to say:
It is with the greatest pleasure that I support a business involvement you are considering, with Mr. DAVID PRACHT.
The reason I came to know Dave and his talented wife and son involved my seeking purchase of land in the Sierra Foothills area of Northern California. As I can attest, it is entirely possible that a personal relationship can devolve out of one initially only of business needs; for that is the effect Dave’s warmth and engagement can bring to any relationship you are lucky enough to choose to develop with him! Our initial contact came about twelve years ago; in that time, I have entrusted Dave with three very successful ventures: Two realty purchases and one sale. And it is impossible for me to state any but the highest regard and respect I have developed for Dave, Roby, and Western Sierra Realty.
I noted above that it is easy to find a quick bond forming with Dave. Let me support that claim:
His professional knowledge is stunning; his energy and tenacity in pursuit of a client’s desired goals never recede; and in extremely short order, you will wonder how it is you managed to have the luck to make this fellow’s acquaintance! I cannot state this too strongly, even at the risk of its emotional component; but if you transact with Dave, for any reason whatsoever but particularly for a reason involving his well-seasoned expertise, you will find yourself not only in the wisest company, but in company who takes on your work as if it were his own. If you have ever made a friend whom you instinctively knew, at the outset of association, that here was a soul whom you could trust with your life, then you already have an idea of how valued a person someone like Dave Pracht can be amongst your associates. A superlative character, a warm human being, and a consummately successful professional—these are traits immediately applicable to your prospective project, should you involve Dave in it.
Dave is goal-oriented; personally attractive; morally circumspect; instinctive and intelligent; widely knowledgeable; and just plain fun to be with! His overarching respect for his clients and the value he places on their service are traits which appear again and again, long after the fires have cooled on the initial goals; and he will stand at the ready to bring continuing insights on this or successive projects, should they emerge.
There are so many ways to assess a new acquaintance, which become critical measuring-sticks in a financial opportunity. In each case, you will find in Dave Pracht a dependable, fastidious, charming and attractive individual. There are so many ways to judge a person, prior to knowing him well. In Dave’s case, the evidence of his solidity as a person came from obvious and not-so-obvious observations: The intelligent qualities of his immensely capable partner and wife; his adult son’s many amazing talents; the look of their homestead; and, to borrow an expression from the lake on which the Prachts’ gorgeous home sits, the “cut of his jib.” (In my case, my heart went out immediately to Dave, Roby and Curtis; but their love for their big, beautiful dog Cooper told it all: As this lovable four-footer might have said it, in the affection of his greetings: “You chose well, old soul!”)
One more point: When I sought Dave’s business acumen, back in 2004, it was for the purpose of relocating from the Bay Area to the Sierra Foothills. In my sixties then, I was intent on finding my retirement home. In this pursuit, my realty purchase “had to count”; I did not have the benefit of a career to relive should things have gone wrong.
With Dave, they never came anywhere close to wrong!
If you have any further inquiries about Dave Pracht which you would like to address to me, I would be more than delighted to answer them, meet with you, or further this opportunity for you in any way I can.
KEITH SPENCER FELTON – Grass Valley, CA
Roby and David Pracht sold us our present home as well as selling our previous home.
We interviewed several real estate agents, and chose them because they grasped our needs; were easy to work with; and gave us good advice. In fact, the proverbial “cream did rise to the top”.
We thought that we were interested in buying land with a view and building a home. They showed us several sites but perceived that it was really the view we were interested in. Even though we were not looking for an already built home, they suggested that we see one because of the great view. It is the home that we have lived happily in for the last 10 years.
Also worth mentioning is that they helped us sell our previous home just before the recession when the real estate market dropped. For that we are very grateful.
We highly recommend Roby and David Pracht.
Ruth and Bob Hochman – Nevada City, CA
I highly recommend Dave and Roby Pracht to represent you as either a buyer or seller. I have known Dave and Roby Pracht for many years. I know them to be trustworthy, reliable, and dependable. They have a way of conscientiously attending to every detail in a real-estate transaction.
Dave keeps up to date with the housing market in Nevada County and Placer County. He listens to his client’s wishes/needs and targets properties accordingly. This results in saving time for his patrons.
Roby is skillful in calculations, scrutinizing every document in the escrow process to make sure there are no errors, often times correcting errors that would otherwise go unnoticed.
You could not find more qualified realtors.

It was such a pleasure working with David and Roby Pracht at Western Sierra Realty. Their knowledge of the area and attentiveness to the process in acquiring our new home was invaluable. They responded quickly with the answers to our real estate questions. I would highly recommend him and his support team who made it all so easy and painless. Thank you Michael and Janet Klekar.- Nevada City, CA
–—“I am writing to thank you for the tremendous efforts expended in helping my family find our dream home. Our expectations were greatly exceeded. You were able to take my family’s vision and make it a reality. On several occasions you have gone above and beyond the call of duty to meet with contractors, provide expert advise, and make the whole process enjoyable. The attention to minute details and sacrifices made are greatly appreciated.
Your knowledge base of the Sierra Nevada communities and real estate markets are exceptional. Being an out of town buyer our transition into town was second to none. We were able to hit the ground running in a new city with an established network built on trusted referrals from Western Sierra Realty.
Western Sierra Realty provides world-class support and I would recommend to anyone looking for a home in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Dave and Roby are consummate professionals and I would be open to answering questions for any potential clients. Thanks again for all the awesome support!
