David's real estate practice is based in Raleigh, North Carolina. For four consecutive years (2013, 2014, 2015 and again in 2016), David was the #1 top-producing buyer agent in the firm and #2 top-producing agent overall and he has assisted clients in over $75,000,000 in real estate transactions over the past five years. In 2016, David was named to the Triangle Business Journal's Book of Lists as one of the "Top Real Estate Agents in the Triangle." David has been 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. Prior to relocating to Raleigh and making it his permanent home in the late 1990s, David resided in Boston MA, Fort Worth TX, Syracuse NY, Chicago IL, Homewood IL, Spokane WA and San Francisco CA.
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 daughter attends Ligon Middle School. 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.
