Dave and I served as President of our respective realtor associations in 2015. We developed a personal and professional relationship. I have come to appreciate Dave’s talents, especially with regard to his knowledge of real estate economics. Dave has presented to OCARmembers on a number of occasions – his style is both personal and down-to-earth. The information that he shares is most beneficial to Realtors as we attempt to understand the economics of our real estate industry. Ultimately, Dave enables Realtors to effectively address our clients’ questions and concerns.RITA TAYENAKA
