David Gates grew up in South Carolina and after graduating from college, moved to Atlanta, Georgia. There, he spent 16 years in business and then joined a team of kitchen and bath designers renowned for their work all over the country. That’s when his creative side found life and real estate was the natural next step. He’s never looked back.
David put into place a plan to become a Realtor and selected the beautiful Lake Oconee, just east of Atlanta, Georgia, as his home base. In his first year as an agent, David closed more than $6 million in transactions and was seen by his peers as a natural. Through networking and getting involved, David quickly built a reputation earning repeat clients and glowing referrals. “I love being a Realtor,” David says. “Each client experience is a chance to learn, inspire, and ultimately create a lasting relationship of trust and mutual gratification.”
It is with integrity, energy, hard work, and diligence that David handles all real estate transactions. His approach is to leave no detail unattended, from the first phone call to closing. Clients trust him because he’s professional, reliable, and personable. While David’s focus is always on his client’s peace of mind- answering questions before they become roadblocks - he has also built respectable and trusting relationships with Realtors by communicating effectively and ethically in all interactions. Real estate, to David, is not just about the four walls and the dirt; it’s about the people and their dreams and happiness.
David loves the outdoors and is a fan of most sports - college football being his favorite. He enjoys boating and snow skiing and spending time with family and friends. He especially loves his two French Bulldogs and makes spoiling them a hobby. David is passionate about real estate but even more zealous about life. His philosophy is that when his clients succeed in their real estate goals, his success will naturally follow.
