Obtaining his real estate license in 1971, David has witnessed, experienced and adjusted to all types of changes in the real estate industry, including listing and selling real estate when mortgage interest rates were as low as 2.50% and as high as 19.4%. Real estate values were no different; up, down, static and each real estate market brought new challenges for home buyers, home sellers and REALTORS®!
