David's interest in real estate started 15 years ago with investment properties. This experience helped him develop a keen sense of how quickly market forces can change, what constitutes a smart investment, and that timing is everything.
"Your home is the single largest expenditure you will make. I want people to come home to their apartment and feel they've found their perfect lifestyle. I understand the emotions involved and can empathize. Most importantly, I'm in real estate for the long haul and want my relationships to last just as long. My goal is happy, loyal clients, not just transactions."
David's understanding of the importance of providing excellent client service stems from his previous career in advertising. In holding several senior-level positions in global agencies, he knows what it takes to satisfy a diverse clientele. It starts with being a good listener and means approaching every client with honesty, transparency, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve a successful outcome.
"I apply the same principles with my real estate clients and have been fortunate to gain praise and referrals from many of those I've worked with. As part of the Ed Hardesty Team, I also have the advantage of Ed's knowledge and decades of experience, a valuable resource I can access for my clients daily."
A born and bred New Yorker, David knows the city intimately. He went to school here, studying Communications and Economics, and lived in Manhattan for over 20 years. David still delights in finding new restaurants and exploring different neighborhoods, where every block can offer something new. He currently lives in Westchester 20 minutes up the Hudson River with his wife, two children, and two dogs.
