David’s wife once called him a professional student as he worked on his undergraduate and graduate degrees, at night, for 12 years, going to night classes. He earned an MBA from Kennesaw State University in Marietta, GA. His education continued earning ABR, SFS, PSA, and C2EX certifications from the National Association of REALTORS®.
