IF you’ve heard of Western Minimalism or Japanese KonMari, you know that these are principles that promote happiness through living with fewer possessions and eliminating clutter. These intentional -lifestyles allow only items that make you happy and are useful to live in your home. By eliminating clutter, or things that don’t bring you joy, you’ll experience less stress and have more time and money to spend.
The applications of “less is more” to home ownership and home selling are obvious. With less clutter, your home will be cozier, easier to navigate, show better to homebuyers, easier to keep straight, and easier to pack up when you sell.
The most disorganized areas in your home are typically closets, countertops and drawers. Here are a few tips to make decluttering faster and easier:
Start small, one closet or drawer at a time.
Assign a specific place for every item in the appropriate room.
Organize so that you can see at a glance what is available in every storage space, from kitchen cabinets to dresser drawers.
Fold sweaters and socks vertically so you can see every item.
Use marked containers for small, miscellaneous or boxed items.
Keep only beautiful, favorite or currently useful items.
Don’t let guilt force you to keep anything you don’t want, such as gifts or expensive items you don’t like. Instead, offer these items to people you know or donate them.
Remove donations and discards from the house the same day.

For David, the decision to pursue a career in real estate began as a cross-section for his many passions in marketing, sales, technology, and design. With his past industry experience in marketing and branding, he is uniquely qualified with the resources to market and sell your properties and extract the greatest value in the process.
To David, clients are not just a transaction or a "deal to be made", but truly a calling to serve all fellow Dallasites with distinct loyalty and service in hopes of building life-long relationships as a trusted advisor. He is dedicated to never stop serving his clients until they achieve their real estate goals and dreams in life. He wins by helping others win.
"I want my clients to know that I have their back and they can come to me anytime with any request, not just about real estate. Where you live and where you call home couldn't be more crucial and pivotal to your happiness and well being. That is why I make it my top priority to walk my clients seamlessly through the whole process. Aiming to alleviate the common stressors or headaches, and negotiating to get the best value possible in the transaction for my clients."
David's comprehensive, human-centered approach in real estate sets David apart in the industry. He is on his way to becoming a top producer in Dallas with a loyal customer base—which he says, “...is simply just a side-effect of my process.”
Outside of real estate sales, you can find David exploring Dallas's booming restaurant scene, serving at Highland Park United Methodist Church, going to concerts, trying a new wine, and spending time with his husband, Rafael.
