DAVID FONSECA (DAVE)
Your Vacation Rental Host
Hello. I am your host. I am also a proud U.S. Navy veteran who completed two consecutive combat tours from August of 1966 to May of 1969 flying daily missions out of the U.S. airbase at Danang, Vietnam. I flew over a hundred reconnaissance sorties over South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia and completed 135 night strike missions over North Vietnam. To this day I am eternally grateful to the men that worked night and day to support us, and to the men I flew and fought next to, some who will never return… and who will never be forgotten.
just very fortunate.
I am now a lifetime member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW); a current member of the American Legion in Winter Park and am now considered a “mature” individual. I have been a Realtor® since 2013. My wife and I live in Orlando near UCF where we occasionally play host to some of our 6 children and 6 grandchildren.
I am an alumni of Kansas University (Aerospace Engineering and International Marketing). Prior to entering real estate, I spent 35+ years as a senior executive and consultant specializing on opening new international markets with several worldwide high-technology companies. Besides my time in the Navy, I’ve been employed by or consulted for: Xerox (U.S.); Telxon (U.S. & Latin America); Symbol Technologies (U.S.); Fujitsu (Japan & Latin America); Sumitomo Bank (Japan & Asia); Venture Manufacturing (Singapore, Far East, Australia and Europe); Baracoda (France & North America); and several others, signing government and private sector contract manufacturing and high-tech service agreements – initially worth over $15B – in 37 countries on 4 continents. Yes, I am well-traveled. I also founded a telecommunications company in Kansas right after the breakup of AT&T in the mid-80’s that provided domestic and international long distance services to all the Holiday Inns and La Quintas in the U.S. Through the hard work of more than 150 direct employees, we built three international switching centers and our company was eventually merged with Worldcom (MCI).
I have the following official Realtor® designations: Orlando area Gold Key Realtor®; Graduate Realtor Institute® (GRI); Senior Real Estate Specialist® (SRES); Florida Military Specialist (FMS); Military Relocation Professional® (MRP); Certified Negotiation Expert® (CNE) and Real Estate Staging Expert (RESE). I have also co-authored several books that many clients have found to be helpful in learning some of the “secrets” of the real estate industry. Ask for one of my free books that thoroughly explain the real estate process in simple to understand terms. These comprehensive books are perfect if you want advice and expertise on your side on how to prepare your home for sale, or when you are thinking about buying your next home – without having to deal with an agent… not even me! The books are free for the asking with no strings attached.
