DAVE DRUMHELLER

REALTOR

Hamden Office - 203-288-1821 ext. 470

What is your work experience?

It’s diverse but related. My thirty years working in corporate America included real estate negotiation and procurement of facilities, management of new construction, and a multi year assignment as Director of Interior Design and Corporate Facilities. I am now back to my first love - residential real estate. (I obtained a Broker’s license more than 30 years ago!)

What did you want to be when you grew up?

(Hey, all kids have a dream…) From the time I was about ten years old I aspired to be an architect. I pursued architecture in college but discovered a tight job market upon graduation. That’s when I joined a large corporation and went on to accept various ‘related’ and challenging opportunities as outlined above.

What has been your favorite Real Estate experience?

My favorite & most rewarding experience began with the task of finding my buyer their perfect home. That turned out to be the easy part...purchasing the new home was contingent on the sale of their early 19th century Colonial. The sale was complicated with creative mortgage, various home inspections, multiple contingencies and much coordination to meet deadlines. Ultimately everything worked out to everyone's satisfaction.

Who has influenced you most, and why?

I’d have to say “hands down” it would be my wife Susan. She has always been totally supportive of my transition into residential real estate. While I am now in the position to provide total commitment to real estate, Susan provides full time daycare for our grandchildren.

What is your best quality or greatest strength?

I’m not sure if it’s a quality or strength but I really do enjoy being with people, which may be the reason I got into this business! Other notable qualities include (which arguably could just be in the genes) my patience (Or is this possibly just the result of raising three kids and two dogs?) and the love to negotiate. Most things in life relate to negotiation and if it’s kept light and fluffy, with a sprit of cooperation and we don’t get too wrapped up in ourselves, most negotiation can result in a “win win” for everyone.

What is your favorite vacation spot?

Coastal Maine. In the town of Ogunquit there is a small hotel that hangs over the Atlantic Ocean. We go there as often as possible.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Other then the usual sports and family interests I enjoy providing a sizable sanctuary for birds - year round. I love my ‘Classic Car’! When my dad passed away in ’90 he left behind a rusty (but cool) and mechanically sound 1967 Skylark Convertible. Over the years I’ve restored that car to original condition – so that’s been both an interest and a hobby.
