Dave entered the real estate world for his love of working with people, and he prides himself in his dedication to his clients. His mission is to provide the best service possible, to make the process of buying or selling a home fun and hassle-free, and to help clients make informed and confident decisions.
Dave grew up on the south shore of PEI on his family’s ancestral farm, where he developed a love of the history and culture of the Island. He has a B.A. in History and Politics and a Bachelor of Education from UPEI. Though he spent most of his adult life teaching and roaming almost every continent of the world, he returned to his roots here on PEI in 2012. He currently lives just outside Cornwall with his wife, two wee sons, and his westie, where they are fixing up an old farmhouse and enjoying the Island’s country lifestyle.
After 9 years in education, he began real estate in March 2016 and joined the EXIT team the following September. Teaching has given him the skills to work with a wide range of people and cultures and to guide them through the buying and selling process. Real estate is giving Dave the chance to really get to know our Island, by working closely with people from tip to tip. He looks forward to continuing to serve Islanders to make their move a reality.
I chose Dave to help me find and buy a home, he has been a pleasure to work with since day 1. Through all the setbacks, on my part, Dave was helpful and understanding to my needs. He spent hours answering questions through email, text, and calls. He looked for any problems there might be every time we saw a house. Dave was outstanding, he has become a great friend and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.Shar Thomas
Dave was amazing to work with! Very helpful and patient! We highly recommend Dave for the purchase or sale of your home. As first time home buyers, Dave was patient to show us all of our options and made sure we knew all the details as we went through the process. He was insightful on the ever-changing market and very kind.Simon R.
David serviced our needs so well on a number of deals that he is now assisting my daughter with the purchase of her first home. Great service and great person! Highly recommended.Randy MacEwen
We moved to PEI from Ontario during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC! We weren't even able to see the homes ourselves and that's where Dave came in. Dave was incredibly patient showing us home after home, video touring the homes for us virtually. It took us longer to decide on a home because we couldn't see it ourselves. Dave was so good at being our eyes and helping us to see what our new home would look like. He helped us understand the various areas and what life would be like and to find the right match for our wants and needs. He knew what schools our girls would go to for each home we looked at. He recommended an incredible home inspector, home insurance company and lawyer. He walked us through closing and even waited all day to let Bell in because they couldn't come if we had been in the house first due to COVID.Katie Squires
We would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a real estate agent. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He responded quickly to any questions we had, and made sure we understood every step of the process for selling our house, as well as buying a new house.Amanda Coulson
I had the pleasure to work with Dave while my parents, my uncle and his family as well as myself, my wife and son all moved to PEI from Ontario. Dave had worked with all 3 of us to find our dream homes and that we did. Dave went above and beyond the call of duty and made himself available anytime anyone wanted to set a viewing. He had an unbelievable understanding of the entire island and all neighborhoods. Dave's knowledge of heating systems and how houses in PEI operate was very informative. When it came time to making a deal, Dave's priority was making sure he got us the best deal possible. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent to help us with the purchase of our first home. Thank you Dave!
