A little about David

Dave’s journey to McCall & Almy began with an honest game of touch football. The other David (Almy) was on the field and talked him into an interview. Thirty-six years later, Dave Richardson has built a career in this business that is well known and well respected. He’s a tough negotiator with a dry sense of humor. David has ridden over 6,000 miles in 27 Pan Mass Challenges raising over $500,000 for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute since 1989. He also ran the David Almy Open Golf Tournament for over ten years raising additional money for Dana Farber. David loves skiing with his four grandchildren and spending time on his boat with his family.

 

David is the only broker I’ve dealt with that I could completely trust to represent my interests.”
