David began his career in commercial real estate at Coldwell Banker Commercial (now CBRE Group) in 1980. During his tenure, he quickly climbed the ranks from “Rookie of the Year”, to the sales manager of CB’s Los Angeles office, to vice president and resident manager of the firm’s Jacksonville, Florida office. David was responsible for leading the office to consistent Top 10 performances in the Eastern Division, and was later promoted to senior vice president of the firm’s 35-broker Riverside, California office where he successfully repositioned the office in the marketplace and restructured personnel during the economic down turn of the early 1990’s. Under David’s leadership, the Riverside office ranked in the Top 10 for CB Commercial as well.
