Some people were born to be in real estate! Athena agent David Waldvogel grew up in a family whose business is real estate development and property management. David’s grandmother was honored by the Mississippi Association of Realtors Hall of Fame as one of its first female agents.
For David, the family business meant summers and weekends doing repairs and upgrades on rental units. The family had relocated from Hattiesburg to Louisiana and after graduating from Slidell High School, he extended his knowledge of the business with real estate courses at the University of Southern Mississippi. When he and his wife moved to New Orleans, David switched gears and went into construction management, where he excelled in project management, documentation and contract negotiations. Now David is excited to bring his passion and construction knowledge to Athena home sellers and buyers. “Many of my construction projects were renovations and restorations,” he said. “I can help my Athena clients visualize how a home or business can transform into exactly what they want. With my construction background, I can also give them an educated estimate of costs.”
David, his wife and three children live in Lakeview near her parents. They are active in the Saint Dominic school and church community. His backyard BBQ pit is a favorite meeting place for family and friends.
