David Croppi, Realtor
Managing Broker, MBA, CNE, CLHMS, CRS & SRES
The joy and satisfaction I get from helping and serving others makes me thankful every day for my career in Real Estate. Expertise | Passion | Results is more than just a tagline. It is my promise to you:
EXPERTISE – I will keep my finger on the pulse of the market – inventory, pricing, and market time in different neighborhoods, and will use that information to help you with your buying and selling needs. I also work with local industry professionals who are experts in their own fields, and their input is also put to work, serving your needs.
PASSION –I am a problem-solver by nature, and therefore, my passion is helping people overcome obstacles in order to achieve their goals. Real estate may be the vehicle, but helping people is really my passion. Many of the clients that I work with become good friends after the transaction is over, based on mutual respect and understanding.
RESULTS – Results are the yardstick with which I measure the effectiveness of my expertise and passion. I also look at results as a measure of client satisfaction with me and the process. When you work with me, you can expect results – and I expect no less of myself.
The common theme with these three items is that it is all about YOU. My role is that of real estate guide. Everybody’s journey is a little different and I am here to guide you from where you are now to where you want to be. Your journey may be an easy path or may require a more skillful approach. We will talk about what we can expect for your trip. We can plan for some difficulties along the way that may cause our path to be rerouted. But rest assured, I have a plan for the unforeseen and will get you there!
Once our journey comes to its successful conclusion, I will continue to look out for you until you are ready to do the journey again. I will keep my eyes on your investment and keep you up-to-date on how it is performing.
The knowledge and experience I have obtained and continue to develop in the various disciplines of home construction, marketing and sales, business and finance, negotiation and project management all come together to deliver what I hope is an amazing experience for my clients and an opportunity to create lasting relationships with everyone I work with.
