Dave specializes in marketing residential properties in Victoria and multi-unit revenue properties throughout Vancouver Island.
Dave was born on the Island in Duncan. His family moved to Victoria and he grew up along the Fairfield - Oak Bay border. After graduating from the University of Victoria with a Physics degree, he married Agnes and they moved to Calgary. Dave worked as a geophysicist in exploration for Gulf Oil.
While in Calgary, Dave pursued his passions of sports car racing and flying their Cessna 182. After 6 years in Calgary, they just had to get back to the coast. Dave drew on his UVic summer job experience and returned to commercial fishing with a 42 ft freezer troller. Dave’s long term interest in investing in revenue property led him to join the Real Estate Investment Network. This group provided seminars and investment knowledge from the likes of Ozzie Jurock, Raymond Aaron, Robert Kiyosaki and many other top speakers. They provided practical knowledge not available through normal real estate training programs in property evaluation, writing money saving oﬀers, marketing and successful negotiating. This extra training is now a great benefit to Dave’s real estate clients.
After several years investing in real estate on his own, it was a natural for Dave to move into full time real estate sales in 1998.
Dave has lived in Cadboro Bay for over 35 years and served as a director for the Cadboro Bay Residents Association for many years. During that time, he has helped with a number of projects in the Cadboro Bay area. He maintains a web site for the Cadboro Bay area called CadboroBayToday.com . With his wife Agnes, he volunteers for the Victoria Natural History Society helping with Birding and Botany events. He also volunteers with her helping with several other natural history groups such as doing Owl Research for the Habitat Acquisition Trust. Again with Agnes, he volunteers with several gardening clubs and they have opened their extensive garden for these groups and the community for over 30 years.
Dave donates a portion of each sales commission to the Victoria Shelter Foundation for women.
