David Highland’s approach to real estate is underpinned by boundless energy, unwavering commitment and strong faith in his team.
The third-generation real estate agent with over 17 years of experience has earned a reputation for playing at the top of his game, and was awarded 9th in top 100 agents across the country by Real Estate Business in 2017. In the past 12 months, David has personally sold more than $200m worth of property.
A Sutherland Shire local, David co-founded Highland Property Agents in 2007 with his father, Peter Highland. Together, they have grown the business from six staff to a team of more than 85 people. As CEO, David inspires his team to provide a personalised real estate experience for clients. Every week, he oversees staff health and fitness programmes to bring the team closer together and cultivate a company culture of trust, reliability, and resilience.
