He founded David Norman Realty Advisors with the goal of it becoming the premiere and most qualified land brokerage company offering expert services in every aspect of transacting farm, ranch, and recreational properties for both buyers and sellers.  While other general real estate offices sell themselves as "experts" in land brokerage, David's extensive experience and proven success record allows him to provide the most comprehensive and thorough services to all of his clients.  He has represented many satisfied customers for over 30 years including high net-worth clients with 1031 Tax Free Exchanges, those selling and buying multi-million dollar properties, and many young farmers and ranchers buying their very first tracts of land. 

David graduated from Texas A&M--Commerce with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Agricultural Finance.  He is very proud he represented his alma mater in the recent acquisition of the farm land in Hunt County for The Texas A&M--Commerce Agricultural Research Facility benefiting all farmers and ranchers throughout Texas.
