David Hodgson – Managing Broker

David was born in the sunny (and hot) skies of Scottsdale, AZ. He was a wee’ lad, when his family moved to Washington State. Raised in the area, he developed a passion for the beauty, culture and people in Washington State. After an 8 year tour in the United States Navy (World’s Finest Navy!), he came back to his home state to pursue his two degrees in Legal Studies, and a BS in Computer Science. Prior to his venture in real estate, he was a Paralegal involved with Complex Litigation cases at a major law firm in Seattle, WA.

Currently, he’s a licensed Managing Broker and RealtorĀ®, specializing in representing his clients in the purchase and sale of single-family residences and income property within the Greater Seattle / Bellevue and Eastside communities. In his words: “I truly love this area and pride myself on my knowledge of current market conditions, school districts, neighborhood information, and related community services.” When he’s not working with clients, he loves to play in the dirt in his garden, remodel older homes, and has an affinity towards old Ford Mustangs and Jaguars.
