Home Applause - David Masor

Sales & Managing Partner

Following a 20+ year career on Wall Street, David decided to pursue his lifelong passion for real estate full time. David had been focused on purchasing single and multifamily properties at discounted prices and realized how much money homeowners left on the table by selling to “flippers.” After endless hours pondering if there could be a business model that would allow the homeowner to keep all those hard-earned profits, Home Applause was born.
