Buying or selling a home is one of the most important, but stressful, transactions in the lives of most people. Because of that, it is essential that you work with someone you trust and feel is a market expert with integrity. I measure my success through the satisfaction of my clients. I know that your success is my success.

And see below for what people have to say about working with me.
I have lived and worked in Montgomery County, Maryland for almost 60 years. I love to work with first time home buyers and people in every generation. I do spend a lot of time working with older adults in the County. I help them transition through the challenging stages of aging in place, downsizing, or moving to one of the numerous older adult communities in the County.
Working with older adults often means working with a team of family members. My goal is to be part of the team, as a trusted fiduciary, practicing excellent communication skills across multiple parties.
Downsizing, rightsizing or making a lateral move to age in place can be stressful and a daunting task. It does require a qualified team to advise and help with the process.
I will take the time to work with you and your family to discuss needs, propose options and help you determine the very best community option for you. We can work within the specifications you provide and locate a property that fits your needs.
As an SRES® designee, I leverage my senior education, my senior experience and my senior network to find properties, determine competitive offers, and negotiate purchases on your behalf.
I maintain and manage a network of area contractors, movers, organizers and inspectors. I am a member of the Grass Roots Organization for the Well-being of Seniors which provides me with another network of senior care providers and senior care living communities.
When there is a need, I can assist in the disposition of estate assets by:
• Coordinating the organization of property contents
• Maximizing donations, clean out and sales
• Arranging certified appraisals
• Supervising the sale of contents
• Managing distribution of valued items to family members
What People Say
Great person to work with. David was very accommodating and patient with me during the home selling process. What made him even better was his ability to juggle me being out of town during the majority of this process and helped me through getting things completed virtually. He also recommended updates to the house that were spot on and made the house look like new. What I valued most about David was that I gave him the green light on improvements that were needed and he scheduled and executed the improvements without needing me to be there. What I thought was going to be a daunting process to sell a home…David made super easy and relaxed. He made this process very smooth and easy for me and I really appreciate him for that. Hands down, if I were to sell a home again, I would choose David to be my realtor. Highly recommend David if you are looking for a realtor that is hard working, super knowledgeable, and overall, very easy to work with.Jon H.
David was a fantastic person to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending him. He was very detailed when explaining the process of purchasing a home (we were first time home buyers). He spent lots of time with us discussing our options and best course of action. He is detailed oriented, organized, patient, and very professional. He is very knowledgable of the Maryland area. He helped us identifying many different neighborhoods that would fit and fill our needs. Again, I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a professional. hard-working, and honest realtor.Rodrigo
David is an exemplary real estate agent. Particular areas of excellence include: 1.) Availability: My wife and I have busy schedules but he was always available to talk on the phone, responded quickly to emails, and could always find a time to show us a listing we were interested in within 24 hours. 2.) Listening: he listened to all of our priorities and targeted our search to houses that met our needs. When pressed, David would offer us advice about a home, but he went out of his way to offer options. He encouraged us to come to our own conclusion about each home, which left us feeling much more comfortable with each decision. He used the same strategy during negotiations with the seller of the home we purchased. He listened to our priorities, offered a set of options, and let us make the choice on how to proceed at each step. 3.) Above-and-beyond-ness: When our home inspection showed a stove burner that was not lighting on one side and the sellers expressed certainty that the kitchen equipment was all working well, David asked to go back to the home and cleaned the burner to make sure it worked all the way around: it’s been working like a charm ever since. This is one example of dozens of ways that David went out of his way to make sure we were happy with the home before we moved in.K & M
David was the key to selling our home quickly, smoothly, and at asking rate. From the first meeting David. he had a complete package of information for us review and consider. He was there for us through ever step and was able to answer or get answers to ever question we had. I knew David for many years before we considered selling our home and he was the first and only person I considered because of his honesty, integrity, and drive to get a job done.Stacy L
David is perfect to work with. Down to earth, knowledgeable, goes at the pace you are looking for. The opposite of pushy and yet will be your strongest advocate when you need him. Used him to sell our home, and purchase another. Thanks David!T & K
David is very professional and made selling my home as hassle free as possible, taking care of many details that other brokers would make the seller take care of! I can’t recommend him more highly to sell your home for you! He uses the latest technology in listings with video walk throughs, too. A++ service!aaydosh
David is calm, cool, and collected and struck the perfect balance to get our property to sell at a price we needed to sell it for. He helped us navigate several difficult issues with Medicaid and and the Moderately Priced Dwelling Unit Program in Montgomery County and we are so very grateful. We would use him again in a heartbeat and I highly recommend him for your real estate needs.Suz K
David is nice, patient and responsible. He helped us buying a house and everything on his part went pretty smooth. Most of the documents are online revised and signed which is very easy and efficient.Qin
Our experience with David was fantastic. He was more than willing to guide us through our extensive search for a rental home. His patience, solid advice, and thorough knowledge of the area were essential in the process and resulted in us finding a perfect house for our relocation from another state. We will absolutely be using David as our realtor when we decide to purchase in the area.Sean
