Sales Manager
About David

With more than 20 years sales experience and having co-founded and managed one of the areas most well known and well respected teams, David is thrilled to bring that experience to the management role at Compass Real Estate.

David prides himself on his fierce devotion to his clients, treating each transaction as if it were his own. For David, real estate isn’t just about a house; his goal is to understand his clients’ lives and long-term dreams. With an unparalleled work ethic, David is committed to his clients and believes that no matter the price point everyone deserves exceptional service.  He imparts that to the agents he directly mentors.

 With a deep knowledge of contracts and the DMV micro markets, David brings a thoughtfulness and ease to the process. Known for his wit and honesty, David doesn’t hesitate to tell a client when to keep a house as an investment or when to walk away from a purchase. He exceeds his clients’ expectations, as evidenced by his long-term relationships with homeowners, investors and developers who turn to him time and again for his invaluable real estate advice.

Before moving to real estate in 2002, David worked in the hotel industry, ran a call center and helped launch multiple startups. This entrepreneurial spirit and fervent customer service were a natural fit with Compass, where David helped expand the brokerage to its second market as a founding member of Compass D.C. With experience in large and boutique real estate firms, David chose Compass for the unique way they integrate technology into the process of buying and selling to the benefit of his clients.

David is truly local having grown up in northern Virginia, attending college locally and making his home in vibrant Logan Circle. He loves to travel and heads to his happy place in Puerto Vallarta whenever time allows. In his spare time in D.C., you’ll find him buried in his Kindle or enjoying the amenities of the various neighborhoods throughout the DMV.  David is still proud to be an Eagle Scout.
