As a newly licensed real estate sales person, David is eager to begin serving clients.  David has a 20-year history of providing exemplary customer service, and is committed to treating every person with dignity, patience, and respect.  You can be confident that he will work diligently on your behalf, whether you’re a buyer or a seller.  David has a high level of attention to detail, and he is excellent at staging a home to provide the best presentation.  

David and his wife Joy moved from Indiana to the Monterey area in early 2016 to be closer to family.  His research into the various coastal areas of California revealed that Monterey County provided ample career opportunities while also being the most cost effective coastal area in the state for housing—Choosing the Monterey area has proven to be an excellent choice. While in Indiana, David had a six-year career as an Indoor Environmentalist, where he performed residential home inspections for indoor air quality and water damage. He gained substantial experience with residential structures, from the attic to the crawlspace and everything in between. 

David earned his Bachelor of Science degree in geography from Indiana University.  During his time at IU he was presented with the Thomas S. Barton award in Physical Geography, and he also earned a high academic performance award during his seventh semester.  David also worked for the Indiana Geological Survey for seven years, where he was responsible for surveying all the new oil and gas wells throughout the state.  He also managed the Survey’s Petroleum Database Management System, which housed all the documents and data related to Indiana’s petroleum wells.  During his tenure at the Survey, he gained invaluable experience interacting with a wide variety of people, including research scientists, fellow staff, State office personnel, petroleum industry representatives, and the general public.  No matter what your background is, David is well positioned to serve your needs.

As part of his real estate training classes through Allied School, David choose Real Estate Appraisal as his elective course, which has prepared him to recommend the ideal asking price to list your home.  Understanding the fair market value of a home ensures you get the best price for your home, and it helps to maintain a healthy housing market.

David enjoys long walks on the beach with his wife Joy and their two dogs, Hamilton and Khalil.  He also is a classic car enthusiast, and does much of his own auto maintenance.  Both he and his wife love to travel, have a deep appreciation for art and music, and feel very much at home in the Monterey community.
