A protégé of Allan Schneider, David Bray went onto become one of the original owner-partners of Allan Schneider Associates following the company's namesake's death. As a Managing Director, David was a contributor to the phenomenal growth of this prestigious firm before retiring with the title of Managing Director Emeritus. Now, with the acquisition by The Corcoran Group, he becomes a Senior Vice President and continues to be very actively involved in the business.
Responsible for the sale of so many of the great homes in the area, especially in Sag Harbor, David is still greatly respected by clients and customers alike for his dedication, service and real estate knowledge. His leadership and reputation for high ethics and professional have earned him the well-deserved title of Realtor of the Year, and his management experience has lent to the seasoned expertise for which he's continually known.
Born in Fairfield, Connecticut, David's early education was at private schools, and his summers were spent in Maine where swimming and outdoor sports were the emphasis. His addiction to nature combined with his early interest in architecture and history set the stage for his ultimate gravitation to living on Long Island's wonderful East End. After attending Cranwell Preparatory School in Lenox, Massachusetts, David went on to Georgetown University where he majored in English and Economics. He then entered the advertising business, becoming Vice President Account Supervisor at D'Arcy, MacManus and Masius handling such major accounts as ITT and Pfizer.
After 25 years in the ad business, David brought his marketing and sales experience to real estate. He purchased his first home in the Hamptons 35 years ago, one of which was an historic Sag Harbor 1849 Gothic Revival which he carefully restored. David is also deeply involved with his community, and is a Director of the Bay Street Theater, a Trustee of the Sag Harbor Historical Society, and President of the Trophia Foundation.
