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.
