David Lea, Real Estate Advisor

David Lea has a lifetime’s worth of real estate experience and a passion for making every life he touches better! Originally from Columbia, TN and growing up with a realtor/brokerage owning mother and a custom-home builder father, David says "He didn't stand a chance" of not being involved in the realm of real estate. After high school, David attended the University of Tennesse in Knoxville, graduating with a bachelor's degree in Business. After years of working for FedEx in outside sales, David decided to combine his business experience with his informal training from his parents, and transitioned into helping individuals realize their goals of home ownership.  While working with an agent he was mentoring, they decided to found their own real estate team called "The Fine Living Nashville Group." Over a decade later, David is still the owner, leader, and coach of this team dedicated to helping every client find "Fine Living from Their Perspective." As a respected expert in his field, an annual Top Producer award winner, and five time Awards of Excellence winner, David is soon to be a Lifetime Achievement recipient. Even with over 50 million in sales, he still claims to learn something new every day. Real estate has proven to be a rewarding life expedition that enables him to pursue other life passions including his family, mentoring in Big Brothers/Big Sisters, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, and coaching other business professionals.  If you can't seem to locate David, you might check your closest golf course, local fishing hole, or music venue! David says " I live a very blessed, well rounded life. Each day is an adventure that I can't wait to see what the world offers and who is going to be brought into my life!"
