"Both professional and personable, he made us feel completely at ease as first-time buyerss. His deep social, cultural and economic knowledge of the surrouding communities was impressive and invaluable for the process of moving 3000 miles to become Ithacan-Americans. David helped us feel excited about the process, rather than terrified. One day while viewing houses he bought us root beer floats, that was cool! He was always available to help, before, during and long after the biggest transaction of our lives. With David at our side buying a home was an incredible learning experience. "

—Shannon & Gabe

"David showed tremendous patience and helped us maintain a sense of optimism during our lengthly house search. Through it all he kept our best interests in mind, guided us and help us to seize the opportunity when the right house became available. The sense of trust that we built with him allowed us to feel confident. David was our go to guy."

—Kristen & John

"My wife and I chose David for many reasons. He is a true professional and knows the market inside-out. He listened to what we were looking for and kept us on track. David is one of, if not the most honest and friendliest people you will ever do business with."

—KC & Mitch

"After our initial meeting with David, we walked out with a sense of clarity. He took us step-by-step throughout the process. David listened, and with his expertise, was able to connect us with the perfect home."

—Elizabeth & Chris

"I learned early on in life the importance of doing things right. It’s a simple philosophy, but it’s the value that drives me the most in my real estate career."

There's no doubt David Irish is a man who's guided by his personal values in everything he does. Deep dedication to his family. Commitment to the local community. Integrity as a respected businessman. He'll tell you it stems from his upbringing on a farm, where he had to get up early every morning to make sure all the chores were done. "There wasn't any room for complaints or excuses, and procrastination was never an option," David says. "Things just had to get done because it was the only way we could be successful."

The Foundation for Success

David's work ethic has certainly stayed with him over the years, and it shapes the personal values that define him. After graduation from Cornell University with a degree in Agricultural Economics, he went on to run his own successful local farm for 20 years. Yet because of his Ivy League education and worldly perspective, he often stood out in the farming community—so much so that he was often asked to represent his fellow New York farmers as an organizational leader and expert on current agricultural affairs. This included taking part in an exclusive New York agricultural conference hosted by Hillary Clinton.

Back to Basics

Though his farming days are behind him, David still lives in the country where he enjoys being immersed in his natural surroundings and spending quality time with his friends and family. In essence, he's a man who finds great joy in the simple things. In every aspect of his life, David has a real "back to basics" approach—a down-to-earth guy whose values are well-defined.

The Right Move

When David sold his own farm, he fell in love with the business of real estate. And since 2003, he's been helping others make the most of their buying and selling opportunities in the Ithaca area. "There's nothing more rewarding than empowering others to achieve their personal goals," David says. "That's what motivates me to give nothing but my best every day."

A Straightforward Approach

As you would expect, David's approach to customer service is a direct reflection of his value system. He believes in what he does and stands behind his work. He makes sure the job is done right and that you have the information and guidance you need to make sound investment decisions. And of course, David is a real straightshooter who knows that there's no better way to build trust with his clients than through good oldfashioned honesty and integrity.
