Hosted by David Smith from David Smith Homes
David is passionate about local business, and takes the approach that a rising tide floats all boats. As his real estate business succeeds, he ensures others succeed around him – and as others succeed around him, his business succeeds too. David loves to point the spotlight on other locals, to tell their stories and to build a sense of community. Recognizing that as a real estate professional he is selling communities as much as he is selling homes this helps him better serve his clients.

Video Production by Joseph Kafka of Little Bird Production
My name is a Joseph Kafka a.k.a “Little Bird”, and I am a video content creator and storyteller, who has a habit of letting my curiosity and tenacity get the better of me. Like other creators and storytellers, that curiosity has led me to some amazing people, and discovering some important truths: 1) Whether your Business to Business or Business to Customer, it’s all people to people 2) The shortest distance between two people is a story 3) Discovery is the pathway to creativity and sharing. These discoveries were no accident. The very name “Little Bird,” which comes from my Aboriginal and European heritage symbolizes the spirit of discovery, creativity, and sharing.
