When David Brookman joined the Living Choice SA sales team on 19th April, he did not have far to drive to his new office at Living Choice Woodcroft. David has lived in Woodcroft for the past 30 years!
One of his first duties was a very pleasant one – presenting new resident, Judy Popovic with a $500 Wish Gift Card following her referral to the village by her son Shane. Shane also received a $500 Wish Gift Card and will be entered in the annual draw to win a $5,000 gift voucher.
David has teamed up with Sales Manager Katherine Stacey, who has worked at Living Choice for many years, to sell homes at both Woodcroft and Flagstaff Hill. He will be based at Woodcroft Mondays to Thursdays and at Flagstaff Hill on Sundays. For David, joining Living Choice reflects his philosophy of “doing what is best and right for the client and helping them to make informed decisions about where they are going to live”.
David has plenty of sales experience, having worked in the property industry for 18 years. He has won several industry awards, including the Real Estate Institute of South Australia’s Rookie of the Year and the Real Institute of Australia’s Award for Achievement (the first South Australian to win a national award). He also has retirement living sales experience, having previously worked for Masonic Homes, Stockland and One Fell Swoop.
Prior to working in property, he was involved in the book industry with Harper Collins Publishers in Melbourne, where he won a national award for sales achievement. He was also a partner in a “rare book” company in Adelaide and owned his own internet-based rare book business. Naturally, his interests include reading and he says he has thousands of books at home! He also loves history (particularly Japanese history pre- 1863) and science (astronomy, physics, technology and computers).
David’s other interests are AFL (his favourite team is Port Adelaide), EPL (Liverpool FC) and NBA (Boston Celtics). He enjoys fishing, bushwalking and spending time with friends.
David is married to Karen and they have two children – Samantha who is currently studying medicine at Flinders University, and Raymond who is studying nursing at Flinders University. He admits to having some vices. “I love drinking coffee (too much), good wine and I don’t mind a good craft gin.”
If you would like to book a tour with David – and talk about books, sport, science and fishing while you view the homes available – phone 0484 000 090 or 1800 502 524. We are sure he will treat you to a good coffee!
