Since 1977, Richard has brought a wealth of real estate experience to Team Currier. A former teacher at both Belmont Day School and the American School in St. Cloud, France he has always been drawn to real estate. During his teaching years, he purchased two triple deckers (three family homes) and spent weekends, holidays and vacations renovating. With his keen interest in teaching and education, Richard especially enjoys working with people who appreciate the guiding advice of someone who can help alleviate the stress of buying or selling a home. Richard partners with his wife Barbara and the other members of the team to educate clients on the finer points of buying and selling property. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with Barbara, four grown children and nine grandchildren as well as walking around Fresh Pond with his Border Terrier, Chester.
Spent the first part of his career working on projects from Broadway to public radio and came to understand why and for whom a product (whether it’s a show or a home) is appealing and how to communicate that with both buyers and sellers. His experience bringing audiences and arts experiences together has enabled him to recognize what motivates both buyers and sellers and how to help make sure both have the best outcome possible.
David has lived in the Boston area since 1980, spending over a decade in Cambridge where he served on his condominium association board as well as on the board of a small non-profit arts presenter.
