He has been named a Top Producing Realtor for 13 years, and is in the top 1% of Realtors worldwide. He's also been featured on HGTV's show House Hunters. Dave has closed hundreds of transactions over his 15+ years in real estate, earning a JD Power score of 9.5 in complete customer satisfaction for 5 years running. He works hard to get you the deal you''re looking for – Dave averages 4% more savings than the average transaction. In 2013, Dave sold 95% of his listings within 35 days, and within 2.5% of asking price, far exceeding the area averages. Dave has spent the past 15+ years analyzing the home buying and selling process for his clients. He has dedicated his time to streamlining the process and improving the results. Dave has surrounded himself with the leading experts in the field and is committed to continuing education so that he can always ensure he's offering the best advice and information for today's market. Part of Dave's business philosophy is that it's better to be great at one thing than to be okay at several things. That's why Dave has hired a team of experts to work alongside him, from client care coordinators to closing experts, photographers to professional writers.

He volunteers regularly with Habitat for Humanity, because he believes everyone should know the joy of home ownership. Despite his busy work schedule, Dave loves spending time with his wife Halley and their mutts, Flea, at their home in downtown Charleston. They both love sports – Halley is an Auburn grad, and Dave roots for anything related to Michigan and Detroit, as he grew up in southeastern Michigan. Dave is thrilled that every day he gets to pursue his passion of helping people and their families realize their dreams of home ownership.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Ocala?
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.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Ocala?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

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 Ocala 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.
