Coming into the real estate field directly out of college, David has spent his entire professional career at Brown Harris Stevens, being mentored by the finest and most established brokers in Manhattan. Working his way up starting as an Assistant, then Sales Associate, to Associate broker and now as a Vice President/Director, David has taken the time to carefully build his experience, integrating the knowledge and skills from this elite brokerage community, and thoughtfully selecting those which he applies to his own unique practice.
David specializes in townhouse, small building and apartment sales, and has set several price records in multiple neighborhoods during his 9 year tenure.
Most recently, David was named as one of New York City’s top 100 agents by Top Agent Guide. A link to the Top Agent Guide webpage is posted below under “In The News.”
In 2009, David sold and closed the 13,000 sq ft, 25' wide Barclay Mansion at 5 East 78th Street. Designed by C. P.H.

David has closed two multi-million dollar exclusive listings at the Time Warner Center for $5300/foot and $5100/foot.
David also set an Upper West Side mid-block townhouse price record by $1,300,000. The 18' wide home in the West 80's, sold for nearly 20% over its substantial asking price, and that sale still remains as the highest sale price ever achieved for a townhouse on the Upper West Side, between Columbus Avenue and West End Avenue.
David has set a price record for the highest block sale price for a Harlem townhouse on 143rd Street, and a Village apartment at 50 East 8th Street.
