Bob David - About Me
My strategy is very simple but requires in-depth understanding of the RE market at all times which includes up-to-date knowledge of the potential buyers and how to give them what they want.
It begins with listening carefully my clients’ own needs and gaining a full understanding about what makes their property so desirable. Then comes a marketing plan designed specifically for their property to ensure that we reach all possible buyers and give them a chance to conclude that your property is the right one for them. Lastly is attending to all details to avoid surprises and make sure the sale is completed.
When I work with buyers, it’s most important to listen carefully as they describe to me what they really want in a home so that I form a mental picture of it and will know it when it comes on the market for sale. But we must also be clear about what is reasonable and within their budget while I make sure that we are prepared to make the strongest offer possible to secure the home in this very competitive RE market.
I grew up in New Jersey, graduated from Rutgers, the State University, with a BA in Economics, Business Minor and earned the Rutgers Gold Key Award, recognizing commitment and service to college organizations. I became an auditor for CPA’s Price Waterhouse & Co. before moving to California, joining CPA’s Touche Ross & Co., becoming a California CPA and obtaining an MBA in Finance from Golden Gate University. Since then I have been a Senior Financial Analyst for Levi Strauss & Co, Controller for the Levi Strauss Foundation and Corp Controller for a multi-unit Bay Area retailer.
The responsibilities in these management and executive roles helped me to develop an ability to evaluate goals, think creatively and achieve results quickly. These are the skills I now use in Real Estate to analytically compare properties, determine market values, plan marketing strategies and negotiate contracts. These are the skills most important to sellers today.
I sell real estate because it’s what I love to do. Having personally bought and sold many properties along with my wife Helen, I have developed an appreciation for the architectural beauty, distinct styling and essential functionality of homes. My goal is to help others achieve the results we were able to achieve and to provide my clients with the confidence of knowing that together we will find a way to get the job done the right way!
