Through living and selling locally for over 40 years, David has built up a wealth of experience that is rarely equalled. Qualifying as a chartered surveyor from the College of Estate Management in London, he moved to Devon in 1973 and soon became a Director of The Lester Smith Partnership. This company had one of the best reputations throughout the region, highlighted by the Bristol & West purchase in 1987. David served five years as Director and Regional Manager before leaving to form David Rhys & Co in 1992. During this period, he became a founder member of the Ombudsman scheme and a recognised fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents. In his spare time David participates in many local events, and in his earlier days raised a great deal for various charities through his marathon running, one of his great loves. He is now content with scenic walks, photography and spending time with his family, particularly his grandchildren.
