More About Me

Business PhilosophyWith over 16 years in real estate, and 30 years experience in marketing, sales, and high-level VIP customer service, I bring unsurpassed professionalism, integrity, and passion to helping my clients buy and sell homes. I love what I do, whether it involves buying a simple entry level home, or marketing one of the magnificent ultra-luxury homes in the area. More than anything, my clients rely on me to provide the best information, analysis, and advice so they can make important decisions about their home and investment.

Finally, I am a huge champion for the extraordinary communities of Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, Fountain Hills, Anthem, and North Phoenix, so it is a great joy for me to help my clients get to know this area.

It is All About the Mission

A fellow realtor said this about me: "For David, it is about the Mission, not the Commission."

"Helping people" is a lifelong Mission for me. I am thrilled to dedicate myself to helping families throughout the complex, emotional, sometimes frustrating, and occasionally joyful process of buying and selling real estate. They say real estate is one of the most stressful experiences in life -- part of the answer is having an agent who you know looks out for you and your interests as his only goal.

Community InvolvementPrior to real estate, I spent most of my career working as a professional staff member or consultant to major nonprofit groups. I have been involved in everything human services, health charities, animal welfare, conservation, historic preservation, youth development, and much more. More recently I have been active in my professional associations, chairing local committees and as a former Board Member of the Arizona Association of Realtors.

Communities I ServeI work mainly in the Northeast Valley -- Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, Fountain Hills, Anthem, North Phoenix and Peoria. When I can help clients in other parts of the Valley of the Sun, I am delighted to do so. In addition, I have an extensive referral network through Coldwell Banker and I am always delighted to recommend an agent anywhere in the country or most parts of the world!

The Good Life. Arizona Style.Whether your passion is for golf, biking, hiking, horses, photography, motorcycles, fine dining, upscale shopping, or just enjoying our stunning sunsets, the High Sonoran Desert areas around Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, Fountain Hills and North Phoenix offer unique opportunities for The Good Life, Arizona Style. Most of the homes in the area feature luxury amenities, open floor plans, high ceilings, and wonderful areas to enjoy time with family and friends. Custom Searches for Your Dream HomeOne of my many services is to create highly-tailored custom searches for each of my Buyer clients, so that they can easily look at all of the best homes. This program is infinitely better than using any of the consumer real estate websites, and can help you get to know the market and neighborhoods while searching for your dream home. By using my custom program, you can see the best homes, for the best prices, so you can make the best decision for your needs. And at crunch time, I can share "instant" MLS updates, so my clients are the first to know about new listings.
