About David Thompson

Hi, I'm David Thompson. I have over two decades of successful real estate experience in the Winnipeg market, as well as being a guest speaker/trainer at prominent real estate seminars in North America. Today’s housing market is challenging. It takes more than a real estate license to successfully meet client needs. I work smart, leverage my team’s skills, focus exclusively on client objectives and use technology to my advantage. I have built my business over the past two decades through word-of-mouth referrals, and I am very proud that each sale I make leaves clients satisfied and leads to new business for me. I’m asking you to share my value-added service offering with your friends, family and colleagues. I invite them to contact me for a no-obligation, complimentary consultation...I know they’ll be glad you gave them my name!
