The late David J Davies


About The late David J

David was one of the area’s most respected professionals. He created and led the entire David Davies operation whilst keeping a very ‘hands on’ approach. Property valuing was one of his areas of expertise. For many years with his beloved ‘Golden Retriever’ Barney. His experience spanned some four decades. David was married to Paula and was a devoted father of twin boys Harry & Luke. David’s professionalism and vast experience still provides the inspiration and driving force behind the company.
