A licensed real estate salesperson in New York since 2002, David provides full service to buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants.

David lives with his wife, son and daughter in Irvington, NY, and specializes in the River Towns.
Born in the Bahamas and raised in Queens, David is a first-generation Asian-American only child of parents who did not speak any English.
