Dave left his home state of Michigan in 1989 to attend Arizona State University and upon graduation, Arizona became home. Everything about the state was appealing from the incredible weather, exceptional golf courses, and the proximity to skiing only 90 minutes away in Flagstaff. Now a 30+ year Valley resident, he and his wife, Caren have raised two wonderful daughters who currently attend U of A and ASU.
In 1996 Dave got his real estate license while working for Lyle Anderson and Desert Mountain Properties as a full-time staff member of The Tradition golf tournament. When the tournament moved to Washington state 4 years later, Dave became a partner of The O’Keefe Group, North Scottsdale's top producing real estate team at the time. While there, he honed his professional skills selling golf lots and custom homes in Desert Mountain, Estancia, Mirabel, Whisper Rock and others. The economic recession in the late 2000’s resulted in diversification to a more conventional real estate sales territory of the northeast valley, including Northern Phoenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek and Paradise Valley.
