He is also active with the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. Testimonial: Selling your house and buying another is no simple matter when you want the timing to work out perfectly! That’s why we were fortunate to have a great real estate agent in David Jones. He really worked hard to get our townhouse sold, and to close the deal on the house of our dreams in Burlingame within three days of each other. It was virtually seamless. David was attentive to what we were looking for and tireless in his efforts. He was quick to respond when we had questions, and his counsel was invaluable. David is ethical, personable and intentional. Although I hope never to move again, I continue to recommend David Jones to anyone looking for the right agent to put it all together for them! - Sharon Stricker Sapphire, NC
