About David

With David's business background and education he has been able to build one of the top real Estate Sales Teams within Central Florida. Other than leading his team he works mainly with home owners in Central Florida who are trying to get their homes sold for top dollar and within a short period of time! His results in these two areas consistently outperforms the averages in Metro Orlando! For the past five years he has been able to help his sellers get their homes sold for 1 to 4% more (sold to list price) and under contract in half the amount of time than the average in Central Florida. By helping his sellers get their house in top showing condition prior to listing and by providing maximum exposure to 100% of the buyers during the listing period, he is able to create very high demand for their homes which ultimately leads to a higher sales price and being under contract within a shorter period of time. His success can be mainly attributed to the way he does business with his clients; he works more as a consultant than a sales person. By asking his sellers the right questions he is able to find out what's important to them about the selling their house which then enables him to meet and exceed their expectations!
