David J. Levy, CMCA, PCAM, President
Mr. Levy is the hands-on company owner of Sterling. His involvement with the condominium industry dates back to 1985, starting out as a newlywed moving into a condominium townhouse as a resident owner.
Given his high energy level and desire to give back, he quickly became an active volunteer. He was then requested by the community to start a management company back in 1987. His ownership of condominiums expanded in the early 1990ís to include being an investor owner, which he and his wife continue to this day, more than 15 years later.
These experiences flow into Davidís desire to organize Sterling around the concept of providing sterling (i.e. outstanding) service to both investor and resident owners.
