David Newcombe


Licensed Real Estate Specialist

From lighting design with Royal Shakespeare Company and "West End" theater, to technical directing the London Contemporary Dance Theater, to creating TV dramas for BBC and other broadcasters, to accidentally helping create a #1 hit, to directing the national news... then Real Estate. After arriving in Phoenix in 2003 I started working in resale home sales and quickly moved to Development. A Londoner/city dweller at heart, the chance to join the urban movement in the Valley and be a part of creating vibrant vertical communities was compelling and exciting. Long term relationships have always been key to me. They have lead to representing developers in several other projects, from Two Biltmore, to Fairway Lodge, and presently Portland Park Condos
