Leasing & Business Development
David began at Morton in June 2015 originally as a Property Manager for the Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Haymarket and Hyde Park area. David has developed into the role of Property Consultant where he is responsible for growing the number of investment properties in our Penrith based property management portfolio.
Originally from London, David has a Bachelor of Agricultural Economics (from the University of Sydney), and his Certificate 1 in Chinese Mandarin (from TAFE Ultimo). Previously working in Business Development and as a Sales Manager in the Real Estate Classifieds section for seven Courier community newspapers in Sydney, David became aware of Morton’s professionalism and growth potential.
David enjoys working in Real Estate for meeting and working with a broad range of interesting people, clients, customers and colleagues, as well as the ability to establish and maintain long term relationships with them. David prides himself on being thorough and service driven to ensure he understands his clients’ needs and to provide a solution as quickly and cost effectively as possible. He is a people person, being able to speak a few words in 12 languages, to break the ice and build rapport with clients. Given his publishing background, he is detail orientated and loves technology in the task process.
The success David has achieved in his real estate career is evidenced in his industry awards. In 2015, David was a Finalist in the Australian Real Estate Results Awards in the category Performer of the Year – Property Management. In 2016 he was a Runner Up in the Real Estate Business Awards for the category Rising Star. And in 2018, David won the ARERA award for Business Development Manager of the Year.
When David is not working, he enjoys spending as much time with his two young boys, as well as playing soccer, tennis and golf. He enjoys socializing with friends, skiing, watching rugby and playing the odd game of chess!
