David Wright Bio

David Wright is a native Californian who moved to the Sierra from Santa Cruz in the late ’80s. He was a founding member with North Woods Realty, the first office inside Tahoe Donner in 1991. At the coast, David served 4 years as a Carpenter’s Apprentice, earning his “Journeyman Card”, then his General Contractor’s License. As a contractor, he specialized in beachfront homes and Victorian renovations. He built a loyal clientele with his “Quality-oriented, attention to detail” service. That standard remains his banner as a Realtor.”

Since I was 17 I have been involved in the housing industry – literally from the ground up. I am not your typical “salesman”. I am an expert on functional, efficient & pleasing home designs for our climate. I brilliantly and honestly market the positive attributes of properties I have listed. If buying from me, you will become acquainted with terms such as “energy-efficient”, “microclimates”, “snow loads “, “sun exposure”, “snow shed” and “winter access “. I match clients with wholesome properties. Making money is a by-product of what I do, not the focus”. His official certification as an “EcoBroker” nicely blends his home construction background, eye for function and efficiency in a home, local knowledge, and his resources available for adapting and incorporating new technology into existing homes to become less costly to own while becoming more energy efficient. “What EcoBroker is doing now will become a template for the housing industry in the US and will significantly reduce our energy needs. This is not political, it is not fringe, it IS implementing common-sense approaches and new technology to long-accepted standards which are now becoming obsolete”.

David is an avid backcountry skier, and an “A” team member of Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue. When not at work, spring, summer and fall might find him hiking, mountain biking, golfing, fly fishing, competitive Outrigger Canoe racing, kayaking, windsurfing and getting to his 34′ sloop “SELKIE” in Santa Cruz.

David and his wife Susie live in Tahoe Donner. td@tahoedavid.com530-412-1241
