Dave Parry (1958-65)
I graduated from Manchester University with a
Bachelors degree in Computer Science, then, after working as a
programmer/analyst/systems designer for two years, I went back to college to
obtain a Masters in Systems Analysis from the University of Aston in Birmingham.
After an 18-year career in the computer software business in the UK and the US,
I have now been selling residential real estate (homes, condos and apartment
buildings) in San Francisco since 1986. My licence is with McGuire Real
Estate, but I am an independent contractor, as are most real estate brokers in
California. That means I am entirely commission based - no salary!
In 2002 I was President of the San Francisco Association of Realtors®. At
the State level I am also a Director of the California Association of Realtors®,
a Board member of its Real Estate Business Services and Real Estate Business
Technologies subsidiaries, and a member of its Strategic Planning committee.
In 1998 I was the Realtor® of the Year in San Francisco, and in June 2000 I
became the first broker in San Francisco to qualify for the National Association
of Realtors® e-PRO (electronic Internet professional) designation.
I am a Board member of the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society (www.sfhistory.org).
I wrote all six of the house histories for the Historical Society's Pacific
Heights home tour fund-raiser in October 2000. I also write articles on
architects, which are published every other month in the New Fillmore
neighbourhood newspaper. After they are published I make them available
through the Architecture page of my own web site (www.classicSFproperties.com).
I am a collector of historical items, including antique postcards, with a focus
on San Francisco history. If the real estate market ever slows down, one
of my objectives is to turn a lot of the material I have accumulated on San
Francisco architects into a book.
