Life Quality Examiner is curated by me, David Findley, together with my partner, Dane Findley. We specialize in helping others buy and sell luxury estate homes in fair-weather locations across the globe.
We often work directly with the Business Managers of our clients, many of whom are purchasing or selling a home from their portfolio of properties (in 2008 I was ranked number 13 of all agents in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal).
History of David Findley
While spending my early childhood years on a farm in Northeast Missouri, I would join my grandfather each morning for a before-sunrise breakfast.
The menu always included a final course: Neapolitan ice cream (he got up at 4:30am; if you’re going to get up that early, you should make it worthwhile). Those breakfast meetings with my grandfather may not have unlocked all the secrets to success, but in my eyes they provided an essential component to a thriving career – enjoy it.
What’s most important to me are the relationships I develop. For me, it’s never about the specific transaction; rather, it’s all about the relationship. My job is to always represent the best interests of my clients.

What Do I Do?
Dane and I are house matchmakers.
We match people with the lifestyle properties that can help transform their daily life into something more joyful and enriching.
We do this, in part, by researching the happiest and healthiest neighborhoods in the world and identifying what it is that sets them apart.
What Problems Do I Solve?
When I first started selling luxury beach homes in warm-weather climates (nearly 40 years ago) the real estate purchase contract was a single page. Those were simpler times, for sure!
Today, the real estate contract for a typical high-end estate is a heavy folder several inches thick.
Most clients would be surprised to learn how much complex contractual work happens behind the scenes for each of their home purchases and sales.
To be brutally frank, not all real estate professionals today are detail-oriented enough to efficiently handle the hundreds of points required for a successful transaction – many tend to become overwhelmed or emotionally escalated, and that’s when important items can be overlooked and deals can disintegrate.
I help people have the most successful, enjoyable real estate transaction possible.
How Am I Different?
Many real estate professionals are, in essence, salespeople. They are extroverts who have a knack for generating new “leads.”
In my case, I am not a salesperson: I’m a trusted advisor.
And I don’t have leads, I have clients.
I do not work transactionally. I work as an advisor for my clients helping them achieve what is in their best interests.
In other words, the specific transaction is less important to me than the long-term relationship.
How Am I Relevant to You?
If you are intrigued by the notion of improving your daily quality of life, then I encourage you to contact me whenever you have real estate needs or questions.
Our clients enjoy having a home that is more than just a house – they want to have a home that creates a foundation from which to create a more joyful lifestyle.
Dane and I thrive most when we can help others find the home that best matches their unique interests and needs. We can be reached directly at (310) 345-6911.
What about Referrals?
If you are a fellow agent, or someone who would like to recommend our services to a friend or colleague, we would be happy to answer your questions and address your potential need for an agent in the Los Angeles area.
The source of nearly all of our business are business managers, repeat clients or clients to whom we have been referred.
We specialize in lifestyle estates and the higher-end of the market – we’re highly aware of what’s going on in that particular segment of the market.
It would be our pleasure to assist you in any way that is helpful.
You must know how important it is to choose an agent you are convinced will handle your transactions professionally and with the kind of care and attention-to-detail that you expect from yourself.” ~ David Findley
Confidentiality is an important factor for many of the clients with whom we work. In our day-to-day business, our goal is to work with the highest level of integrity, guiding and assisting our clients to achieve their goals with only their best-interests in mind.
Many of our clients have a full-time team of advisors already in place – business managers, executive assistants, and attorneys – and we’re comfortable and experienced in being helpful within that team so that everybody shines.

Our working philosophy is to look for the win-win in every situation. We work to keep good relationships with other agents in the brokerage community, by treating all with kindness and respect. We want to make sure other agents look forward to the opportunity to work with us – an attitude that has proved to be invaluable throughout our real estate career in successfully completing transactions.
