Get To Know

David Pausch

In November of 2000, I closed on my first house, a rough-around-the-edges 1922 colonial with lots of sun, not a lot of storage, and an enormous oak tree in its postage stamp-sized back yard. From the second I stepped in the door, I was hooked on the warm, rooted feeling home ownership gave me. My goal is to help you find that same feeling. A native Wisconsinite, I has lived in Madison for the better part of three decades. When I'm not helping people achieve their dream of home ownership, I am a theatre artist, an aspiring home chef, a committed conservationist, and happily install native gardens at my Rolling Meadows home. I looks forward to helping people from across Madison's diverse communities find the right place to make their family memories.

I am a licensed Realtor in the state of Wisconsin. In addition to residential sales, I also am the brokerage manager for Weichert, Realtors-Lakepoint. I hold the AHWD (At Home with Diversity) and GREEN designation from the National Association of Realtors and am a Real Estate Ambassador with Focus on Energy. I am also a Teacher Next Door Preferred Agent.

Prior to entering the real estate world in 2017, I spent 15 years working as an administrator and fundraiser for arts and conservation-focused non-profits. I am a working theatre artist in the Madison-area, both as a director and as an actor, appearing with a range of Madison's professional and non-professional theatre companies.

I am a strong supporter of the LGBTQ community and believe we all need to actively work to defeat racism.

Since launching my real estate career in early 2017, I have made my focus helping first-time home buyers achieve the dream of owning a house. In addition, I have used my background in theatre arts to help sellers best present and promote their properties.
