Serves Des Plaines


David has a passion for helping people and has found that assisting people in selling their home is what makes his career rewarding. With a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a background in Project Management, he brings a completely different dimension to selling homes. He has stated that marketing a home should be a systematic approach that never overlooks any one part of the process. David believes that every home that is on the market for sale should be staged to its highest potential. The listing agent must bring the emotion out of the buyer to maximize value. David has a beautiful wife and 4 children. His family continues to live and grow in Arlington Heights. He has had the opportunity to participate in coaching basketball in school leagues and AHYBA for many years. David has also had the privilege of working on a local private School Board and donates his time working on marketing functions for the school.
