David started his career at the age of 20 when he opened his first retail business in Santa Clara. Within a few years, his one-person business grew to over 40 employees and 7 locations. David learned the trade of using his business to purchase properties. Over the years, David would buy a retail building, rehabilitate the properties by using his business and within 12-18 months sell the building and use the proceeds to purchase a larger facility. Over the years his retail business turned into an online business where David was able to purchase a large warehouse in Santa Clara, California.
When the market turned for the worst in 2008 and the establishment of other online retailers such as Amazon and Ebay, his business started to slow down. As his business started to scale back, David used his experience and expertise to turn his larger properties into multi-tenant warehouses and created 3 times the amount of income.
In 2010, David decided it was time to let go of the business, keep the properties he owned, and start working with others and use his expertise in Real Estate and become a commercial real estate agent. David Started at Ritchie Commercial and soon found his way to Meacham/Oppenheimer. After 7 years, David was one of Meacham/Oppenheimer’s highest producing agents with over $100 million in Sales over a 3-year period and more than 400 transactions to his name.
David decided it was time to use his expertise as an entrepreneur and create Silverstone Commercial. Silverstone Commercial was founded in 2017 and uses the same principles that David learned at both Ritchie Commercial and Meacham/Oppenheimer. David has also worked with many different developers, owner/user clients, and investors to find locations throughout the state of California and most of the western part of the United States. David has been involved in numerous 1031 exchanges and found properties outside his immediate geographical location to obtain a higher return on his client’s investments.
David uses his experience to help educate his clients by listening to their needs and understanding what they are looking to achieve. Whether it’s an owner/user, developer, or an investor, David has been able to help numerous clients and most of his clients today work exclusively with David to find the next opportunity.
Since David began Silverstone Commercial, David has been looking for other agents with the same self-motivation, drive, and client first attitude that has made him successful in Commercial Real Estate. David has built a team that is here to help Silverstone Commercial’s clients be successful.
