About David: As a Santa Barbara native and second generation Realtor, David has extensive knowledge of the Santa Barbara community. David’s career as a full-time Realtor began in 2002, employed by the Santa Barbara brokerage, Pitts & Bachmann Realtors, and then a decade at Sotheby’s International Realty.
David brings a proficiency in consensus building, negotiation, marketing and client relations to his real estate brokerage. As a project manager for J.D.

David attended Kellogg Elementary and Dos Pueblos High School, where he served as Student Body President, and graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Political Science/International Relations.
“David worked with us for a year and half to find the perfect home, and never pushed us into a house that wasn’t right for us. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient, low pressure (so rare in an agent!), and tech savvy – answering uncounted late night texts without wincing. Unlike some of the realtors we encountered in our search, Dave always seemed to give us advice that lined up with our interests, not his own. I give him my strongest recommendation.” – Ben M.
