Get to know David Crawford
As a long time resident of Vancouver, David Crawford has witnessed the city emerge into one of the most beautiful places in the world. Keeping a pulse on the changing landscape in the lower mainland for the past 16 years has help him develop savvy realtor skills.
David is passionate about the real estate market in Vancouver, but he never started out that way. He was initially employed in civil engineering for several years when his life took a dramatic turn after a sever accident in 1992 that forced him into a career change. During his transition, a mentor suggested that he explore a career in real estate. He felt that David’s technical, communication and negotiating skills along with an abundance of friends, clients, and associates made a perfect combination to launch a new career in real estate.
When David took the plunge, he realized that his analytical skills proved to be a valuable asset in resourcing the detailed information that is absolutely essential for making the right decision when buying, selling, or investing in a home.David’s biggest surprise however, was discovering the job and passion for the profession just as his friend had predicted: “It’s not about the money.” David not only derives great satisfaction offering support with the real estate process, he also loves meeting people from all over the world, learning about new cultures, and fostering new friendships.
Prior to his accident, David was also an avid downhill ski racer. In skiing, there is a fine line between fear and exhilaration. He realized that this principle also applies to home buying. Although the experience can be stressful and daunting, working with a knowledgeable, and experienced REALTOR can transform the fear into excitement. By handling all the details and using his expertise, David removes the pressure allowing his clients to enjoy the ride. David is a living example that adversity can indeed be a blessing in disguies.
Today, instead of rushing downhill at 100 km per hour, he literally stops to smell the roses.
