Born and raised in Prince George B.C., Dave came to Alberta in 1980 and then in 1995 settled in Edmonton. With various jobs in the construction industry, over the years, he learned a lot about new home construction and renovation. Wanting to share this knowledge and the desire to help people led him to enroll in the Real Estate Training Institute of Alberta in 2000.
It was a new millennium and a new career for the former full time musician. In the 20 years of playing drums in bands across western Canada he acquired the nic-name of Digger Dave on Drums. To this day many people that see him play every weekend only know him as Digger.
Starting out as a realtor is tough but Royal LePage ArTeam Realty has been very supportive with ongoing training and weekly sales meetings. Dave has become very efficient in this business and has had nothing but good reports from all his past clients. Honesty and Integrity are attributes that a lot of people donâ€™t associate with real estate agents, but Dave is one Realtor who is doing his best to dispel those misconceptions.
Although realtors are on call virtually 24-7, Dave makes sure to spend quality time with his kids (of which he has four). Ultimately kids do grow up so itâ€™s no longer bike rides and tobogganing, now itâ€™s checking out the latest gadgets at the electronics store or the latest clothing styles in the mall.
With his easy going attitude and low pressure sales style, Dave has made a new friend out of each client heâ€™s worked with. Which is why he has adopted the slogan, â€œDigger Dave, the name friends recommend to friendsâ€.
