Honesty and integrity...Throughout my professional career, I have insured that these principles are part of each and every client interaction. In life, as well as business, you only have one reputation. I pride my reputation by delivering a highly professional client experience, every time.
As a life-long Chicago resident (currently residing in Lincoln Park 20+ years), I have an in-depth knowledge of the neighborhoods of Chicago. Having acted as an investor as well as a builder of real estate, I bring a unique perspective to my clients in their real estate endeavors.
When I'm not out assisting clients, I can be found playing music at the Old Town School of Folk Music (on Armitage) as well as many neighborhood summer block parties and charity events.
Educational background: Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania - SIFMA Executive Program; DePaul University, Chicago, IL - Bachelor of Arts
Community: Local School Council candidate; former chairman of local community board
Clients are saying:
"Dave is not only knowledgeable about the market in the area where I sold my house, he was knowledgeable about the areas where I thought I might live after the sale. He sold my house within the first week and then spent countless hours over the next few weeks helping me find the perfect place to move. Dave’s a genuinely nice guy, who helped make the process smooth from offer to closing. He received high praise not only from me and my family/friends, but also from the buyers. I recommend him highly."
"Dave has been on incredible to work with. He is helping with both the buying and selling process. As a buyer's agent, he went above and beyond to help my family find a home that met our very specific criteria. We lost the bidding process on the first home we chose, so Dave actually went door to door in that neighborhood to find out if anyone else on the block was ready to sell. During our search process, Dave previewed homes we were interested in to make sure they would be worth our time to tour. In the end, Dave beat the internet by finding us a home we never even considered. As a seller's agent, he has made the entire process incredibly clear and easy. He is very responsive to all our questions and has been respectful of our concerns. I highly recommend Dave for all your real estate needs!"
"Dave was unbelievable in helping me, a first time home-buyer, through the entire process of buying a home. Dave took the time to get to know me as a client to tailor his assistance to my specific needs. He was always available through email, phone calls, or text messages and was prompt in assisting me with anything I was confused with or needed help with. He was also incredibly honest. I came in assuming that most people I would work with would be looking to make me buy a place and move on but Dave was there to help me buy the right place. He also helped me smooth over all the hiccups that came with home buying with his immense knowledge of home buying as well as his understanding of how the process normally goes. I was lucky I was referred to Dave but would refer him to anyone I ever met because I know how incredible he is at his job."
"David was a great realtor! He helped me purchase my first condo, later rent it out and eventually sell it. He was very responsive throughout the process and went the extra mile to help me understand each component of buying and selling! I would definitely recommend him as a realtor!"
"Dave worked with my wife and I to find a condo for over a year and a half. We toured over 40 units before finally reaching a contract. Throughout the process, Dave was nothing but wonderful! He never had anything but our best interests in mind, and often times, helped us think through what our priorities were and how much we were willing to flex. He is a wonderful agent and dear friend."
