Welcome to David Carr dot net

 Welcome to my David Carr name site. 

You may consider this another on line resume and point of contact. My name competes with a great quarterback and a great deceased journalist

My Full Time Job is to treat other people as I would want to be treated, be a good dad, husband and member of my community.  

Since 1996 I have been a licensed REALTOR at

Berkshire Hathway Real Estate HomeServices NewEngland  

I am fortunate to have been successful helping people learn about the unique opportunity of real estate, which has afforded me the  ability and responsibility to schedule my life as I manage transactions, view property and talk with my clients.  I have written numerous article about real estate as well.  One interesting dimension of real estate is value stability and appreciation. The only time home ownership has maintained negative equity consequence is for Connecticut houses purchased between  3Q2004  and 1Q2012.  All property purchased before and after 7 1/2 year period of irrational exuberance  time has equal of greater equity value.   I explore this statistical anomaly and other market reflections in my blog

 My previous experience in Systemic family therapy helps me understand the difficulty of negotiating a real estate transaction . Since real estate is a job that requires me to be available, yet  working on the computer and phone,  I have leveraged the power of being wireless to develop some other interests including feeding people who have food access challenges and advocating for environmental stewardship. 

I work to make this a place where you can invest in the future through education and acquisition of real estate. My motivation for practicing real estate agency is to help others have a better quality of life, accomplished through education, experience and advocacy.  When I share my experience and education to help you avoid problems and identify opportunity,  I have succeeded.

2019 is a good time for Connecticut.  You don’t get filet mignon when you order a cheeseburger, and you don’t get low taxes without compromise. Living in Connecticut is convenient, enjoyable and comparably affordable even though certain people say Connecticut residents  pay too much tax.  Just think about how much everything costs in NYC or how far you may have to drive to buy or do different things  in another state with lower taxes. It’s also interesting how our nice our climate is here,  compared to the rest of the USA Did you know wineries and hops are new Connecticut crops recently, due to climate change? We are fortunate to have four seasons, close access to the beauty of New England, the sandy beaches of Long Island Sound and no drought issues. Taking the train to NYC is a great way to visit or commute as well, for only $500/month    

 I am the person you can trust to help you to achieve the results you seek when the time is right for you, by applying my vision and values to your real estate experience. Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Home Service’s position as the most successful ( in completed 2019 transaction sides), most trusted, most respected and most financially stable real estate company in the world enhances my experience, and my ability to deliver promised results without disappointment. 

You have to make an important decision when you employ an agent. Who will you employ, and why? Friend of the family?  Lots of likes on social media? I encourage you to ask about experience. A quick answer is not the most important qualification in an experience that goes on for months with significant financial impact on your life.  I  offer my clients a thoughtful collaborative relationship that keeps you fully advised,  so you know where you are in the process and what your options are at all times. High knowledge equals low stress.  We will confidentially identify your goals  and values of ownership.    

That’s the nature of my mission statement, to be “Here When The Time Is Right For You, The Foundation of Your Success in Real Estate since 1996©” . 

 My practice and experience since 1996  is about building relationships through trust, compassion, integrity, transparency and discernment, so you can recognize opportunity and avoid problems.   At this point in my 22 year career, I enjoy teaching and helping others the most, because it’s rewarding to see other people happy. I have to do lots of computer work, moving electronic documents, evaluating property, doing comparable analysis, writing, referencing, and reading reports these days, but I really like inspecting property, since it’s always interesting and different. 

 I have seen thousands of properties since 1996, completing over 240 transactions worth around $44,000,000.  Some of my properties have cost under $125,000 in my market                  ( because  have brokered REO and worked with investors ), so I don’t get those annual  multi-million dollar bragging rights agents who work in elite communities like Greenwich, Los Angeles, Miami Beach or NYC do,  but it’s no really different, just more demand increasing their numbers.  I  work on referral by introducing my service menu to prospective clients in person and on line in platforms like this.  

I go to all my client’s home inspections, which helps me learn more.  I also get to visualize renovations, often seeing the before and after.  I help my clients after they are closed by discussing plans, and helping them find qualified vendors.   You see, I have always been a Forever Friend, because I believe doing the right thing for somebody else is always the most valuable choice for both of us, so  offer thoughtful options and responsible referrals whenever I can. The people I meet in the world are the most important, as long as they are honest with good intentions.  

Discernment, interpretation, verification, online-security and discussion of market or property information are invaluable skills I, David Carr, deliver to my clients since 1996. My commitment to transparency, advocacy and good faith negotiation brings recognized value to all parties of my transactions, regardless of me endeavor. As a consumer, ou ought to think about who s getting your information online. When ypou work with me there are no ads and nobody calling to sell you, since I can bring you into my secure Multiple Listing data portal. I deliver opportunity and discuss alternatives.
