About David Elam

David Elam - Broker/REALTOR® Intracoastal Realty

In my early years I made the decision to be a minister.  I graduated from a Baptist College with a double major in Religion and Philosophy.  I then received my Master of Divinity Degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest North Carolina in 1980.  I realized the ministry was not for me, but I thought a career in teaching Theology or Philosophy was my destiny.  After one year of post graduate school at UNC Chapel Hill in the Department of Philosophy I was offered a Teaching Assistantship to teach undergraduate philosophy.  I made the exceedingly difficult decision to move on from that dream and started my lifelong career in sales and sales management.

I have proudly been a salesman ever since.  And the principle I have based my 40-year sales and sales management career on is based on the Golden Rule and specifically helping people get what they want. From helping people get healthy by joining a health club, to helping paving contractors meet environmental regulations by switching to environmentally friendly products, to helping sales reps have a successful sales career, and keeping people motivated to accomplish their goals.

Selling your home, buying a home can be both very satisfying, yet challenging as well. I decided to become a licensed Real Estate Broker with Intracoastal Realty to help others like me navigate the real estate market. I have worked with clients throughout the world, helping them get what they want, and I am excited about helping you get that second home at the beach you’ve always dreamed of or that rental property to add to your portfolio or finding that perfect community to retire in or to upgrade to accommodate a growing family.  I also would love to help you sell your house quickly and painlessly so you can start that new adventure in another home or another town.  I have personally done all of these in my lifetime and I know I can help you navigate these waters. I hope you will join me on this exciting journey and allow me to help you get the exact home you want to fulfill your greatest imagination. I promise, it will be fun.
