David Roney - Designated Broker/REALTOR® - GRI, SFR, AHWD, e-PRO
I love helping people transact real estate, honestly! Providing excellent service, honest insight, and offering a perspective from my experience in construction that 90% of agents don't have allows me to serve my clients exceptionally well. Long before I got into real estate in 2002, a handshake meant a promise to me. My word and my integrity are important to me. It's why I serve people and professionals of all types - real estate attorneys, builders, title officers, doctors, CEOs, priests, and many others of various backgrounds. To me, helping people find the perfect home, or sell an existing home, is an important service. It's much more than a business deal to me, and I promise you no-pressure, raving fan service you won't find elsewhere.
