Meet David

I was born in South Africa, grew up in Zimbabwe, have lived on three continents, and by recent count, visited equally as many States as I have countries (27 and counting). The world is full of beautiful people, extraordinary places, and although my quest to explore is unyielding, I feel blessed to have dug my roots in Austin. The secret is out, Austin is a special place, in its own weird kinda way.

Prior to Real Estate, I worked in the Aerospace industry for 15 years buying and selling commercial aircraft components and services for customers around the world. It was a blast dealing in the global travel industry, and the pivot to Real Estate is well-served by this experience and brings a lot to the award winning and acclaimed STRÜB Residential Group at Compass. My family and I moved to Austin from Seattle in 2015. We were looking for good weather, and BOY did we find it. After two years of searching for the right neighborhood, and another year searching for the right property, we settled into our beautiful home in the highly-sought EANES ISD.

I share this because finding a home and community that fits takes a lot of thought and care. A lot of research, investigation, exploration. My wife and I took the long road, but it doesn’t have to be that way for you. Let me be your guide as you search for the home of your dreams, or your home for right now. My love of people and places, my knowledge of Austin and all it has to offer, and the collective mindset of my wonderful colleagues at STRÜB, will be at your beck and call throughout your expectation-exceeding process.
