RE/MAX Southern Homes - 280
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.

After attending Shades Mountain Christian School I attended Samford University in Homewood, AL.

The passion they have for helping others and the truth they speak in love comes from a very real place, a personal place within their hearts. Shannon and Rob are involved in several different ministries giving back so freely what was given to them as they overcame many obstacles and hardships.

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.
