About David

I was born in 1973 at Birmingham's St. Vincent's Hospital and have been in the Magic City ever since. In 2006, I started a new career in real estate hoping to combine my knowledge of Birmingham with a love for the city, its individual communities, and the pleasure of its beautiful homes. I run my business by referral, which means I have built-in accountability to serve the needs of my clients. This business model has been one of the key elements of my success, helping me to reach various sales achievements including RE/MAX International’s Platinum Club (2013 through 2020). I am consistently ranked in the top 20 RE/MAX agents in Alabama and finished 2015 ranked #10 among Birmingham-area Re/Max agents. In 2020, two national ranking services included me in their annual rankings: • NEWSWEEK’s “America’s Top Agents” (Sales Volume in Alabama) • Real Trends “America’s Top Real Estate Professionals (Number of Transactions in Alabama) I live in Inverness with my wife, Holly and daughters, Ellie and Georgia. Holly is a writer and has penned three books including Little Hearts, Prepare Him Room, an advent devotional that grows with your family. We are active members of Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church and greatly enjoy time with friends and family. In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, playing fantasy football, eating Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, and listening to the music of Andrew Peterson, Switchfoot, Colony House, Guster, and Foo Fighters, among many others.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Birmingham?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Birmingham?

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Birmingham?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Birmingham to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Birmingham is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
