David is a Vice President for Transwestern’s Tenant Advisory/Workplace Solutions and Investment Sales groups in Chicago. David works with occupiers of space and specializes in creating and executing real estate strategies, identifying and evaluating space alternatives, and negotiating commercial leases. In addition, David works with property owners, owner-users, and real estate investors/developers in the purchase and sale of commercial properties in the greater Chicago region.
David earns clients’ trust and loyalty with his honesty, straightforward communication, and by truly listening and internalizing their needs and objectives. David has a passion for the Chicago real estate market and enjoys uncovering its granular details. David’s thoroughness and leave-no-stone-unturned approach to transactions both consistently produces successful results for clients while simultaneously providing David with personal fulfillment.


Shortly after graduating Vanderbilt University in 2005, David returned home to Chicago and began his career in commercial real estate brokerage with MB Real Estate, which was acquired by Transwestern on January 1, 2023. David takes great pride in his loyalty to his mentors, coworkers, and clients and for being with the same firm for his entire career.
For the first seven years of his career, David focused exclusively on tenant advisory office leasing in Chicago’s Central Business District and suburbs. Working with clients from a vast array of industries, his team found itself with a roster of clients seeking to purchase and occupy buildings both in Chicago’s Central Business District and neighborhoods. David and his team gained extensive experience identifying properties for their clients to purchase and occupy. This experience, in turn, generated sales listings, and David embraced the opportunity to diversify his business model. Now, in addition to his tenant advisory work, David often has several properties listed for sale. David’s simultaneous involvement in downtown leasing and investment sales—few brokers do both in the Chicago market—has provided him with a 360-degree understanding of Chicago’s inventory of commercial properties, real estate trends, and values.
Some of David’s clients include the Chicago Recording Company, Cook County, the Consulate General of Indonesia, Deliverr, Inc. (now Shopify), First Midwest Bank, HDI Global Insurance, Moody Bible Institute, Northwestern University, Perillo BMW, RHR International, Stewart Talent Management, The Terry Group, UChicago Medicine, United Central Bank, and US Bank.
