With more than a decade of experience as a top broker in Manhattan, David Ayers has sold more than half a billion dollars in real estate. Today, David leads The Foundry Group with The Agency Cleveland, and his clients and team benefit from David’s nuanced market knowledge, negotiating abilities and extensive luxury connections throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond.
Born and raised in Columbus, David is a graduate of Northwestern University. To date, he has worked with some of the biggest names and leaders in the technology, entertainment, medical and financial industries, closing property deals priced well into the eight figures. David expertly analyzes market data and is passionate about guiding his clients through decisions to help them build a strong, diverse real estate portfolio.
After working for nearly 10 years at the top of his field selling luxury properties in Manhattan, David returned to Ohio at the end of 2020 and quickly established himself as one of the top agents in all of Cleveland, having sold three of the area’s top 10 most expensive properties within his first year.
“I love real estate and especially the properties here in Northeast Ohio. Each one is unique and I love the challenge of assessing its strengths and creating a marketing plan to get my clients the absolute highest price,” says David. “I especially love taking a challenging property that another agent couldn't sell, then reimagining and rebranding it to achieve my clients’ goals.”
Prior to launching his real estate career, David was a Broadway actor and starred in multiple shows. Armed with his entertainment and educational background, David continually employs the most innovative and creative digital strategies to impactfully market his properties on an international level. He is also backed by The Agency’s vast global team, which connects him to potential buyers throughout the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.
“Everything I’ve done in my life has been leading to this chapter, right here in Cleveland,” says David. “It’s so exciting to apply all that I’ve learned and all my experiences to this market. Over the last two and a half years, I have had the privilege to truly change the way luxury real estate is bought and sold here in Northeast Ohio. My team and I here at The Agency Cleveland are ready to take it to the next level and cultivate a community of the best agents in the industry. ”
