David's real estate practice is based in Raleigh, North Carolina with a particular emphasis on inside-the-beltline homes and condominiums. In 2013 and again in 2014, David was the #1 top-producing buyer agent in the firm and #2 top-producing agent overall with over $32,000,000 in closed transactions over the two years. In 2012, David was profiled by both the News & Observer and the Triangle Business Journal, and he is frequently quoted in news stories concerning real estate as it relates to the public school assignment system in Wake County. The News & Observer honored David's contributions to North Carolina when it named him Tar Heel of the Week in 2010.
A longtime resident of Raleigh and customer of the firm, David chose Hodge & Kittrell Sotheby's International Realty after a twenty-year career in the performing arts. As President & CEO of the North Carolina Symphony for more than a decade, David oversaw the Symphony's role in the openings of Meymandi Concert Hall in downtown Raleigh and the outdoor Koka Booth Amphitheatre at Regency Park in Cary, as well as the introduction of Grant Llewellyn as the Symphony's fifth music director.
David grew up in Newton, Massachusetts, just outside Boston. He earned his undergraduate degree in economics at Harvard. David lives walking distance to downtown Raleigh and his children attend Ligon Middle School and Vernon Malone College and Career Academy. And when he's not working, you are most likely to find him cheering on the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena or trying out one of downtown Raleigh's newest restaurants.
