Regardless of the season, Jackson, Tennessee beckons to families.
David’s family answered the call in 1962 and they have been here ever since. He left Jackson for a time but returned to his family and his roots in 1989.
A Funny thing happened on the Way to the Classroom
Growing up, David wanted to be a teacher, so when he entered Lambuth College now University of Memphis, Lambuth Campus in Jackson, that was the major he pursued, graduating Cum Laude with a B. S. in History Education. He earned his real estate license while in college, as well, joining Dotson Realtors. He turned his history degree into a teaching position but later returned to school and became a real estate paralegal.
A Family of His Own
David began his own family in 1997 when he married the former Tracy Garrett. During their time off, they traveled and spent time at the beach. Really enjoying their time together and getting to know one another took up most of their first five years of marriage. Having good math skills, they knew that one plus one equals three. They now have one daughter, Virginia Clare “Gini”, born in July, 2002.
Time together now means Friday night pizza and a movie or watching Gini play one of her many sports. Vacations at the beach are very different when seen through a child’s eyes. Each day is a new adventure in learning and not just for Gini.
When not spending time with his present day family, David enjoys the finding out about all the people that make up his past. Genealogy is a real challenge and one that he has taken up as a lifetime effort.
Back in to the Fold
In 1989, after returning to Jackson, Tennessee and joining the family real estate business, he renewed his love for his home town. It’s a love that he enjoys sharing with anyone interested in looking at Jackson as their new home.
Passion for His Career
David’s passion for real estate led him to become co/owner and training director for Coldwell Banker, Real Estate Now. The company was later sold to Coldwell Banker Barnes and he was able to return to selling.
He strives to bring the best service and results in a short time frame. He gets to know his clients and listens to their needs because he knows that there are few places more important to his clients than their home. Whether buying or selling it is their most important investment. It’s the nest that they are building for their family’s comfort and base of operations. So, to search for homes in Jackson, Tennessee or Madison County, contact David.
