DAVID BEDIZ, FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
A North Carolina native, David graduated from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics and is a magna cum laude alum and Phi Beta Kappa scholar of Duke University.
As founder of the Bediz Group, David is an entrepreneur with an eye for detail and a strong work ethic.
David was elected for two terms to the Board of Directors of GCAAR, the area’s REALTOR association, with 8,800 agents and ownership in MRIS, the area’s only MLS provider. In addition, he was elected for two terms to the Board of Directors to DCAR, the state-level association of REALTORS. He is proud to be so involved in both organizations, which are the only organizations that exist to advocate on behalf of homeowners in Washington at both a local and national level.
His real estate experience began in 2000 as an entrepreneurial real estate investor, and then continued in real estate sales and consulting for clients beginning in 2004. With five years of professional web design and photography experience to boot, he brings a unique, personal marketing perspective to sellers and the first-hand knowledge necessary for buyers.
Some of his notable accomplishments are to sell the former home of Warren Harding to the Principality of Monaco for its Ambassadors’ residence and to lease the $3.5M home used as the residence of the popular television show Top Chef: DC. He’s also extremely proud of his team, which he takes pride in directing with great care to ensure the highest standards of customer service and market knowledge.
Owning as many as 20 rental properties at one time, David understands the needs of commercial and landlord clients, and has direct knowledge of local laws and processes necessary to operate a successful rental housing endeavor. In DC, rental housing laws are the toughest in the nation for landlords, and David knows the pitfalls and shortcuts to obey the law and operate a business efficiently and effectively.
David is certified as an e-Agent, and is authorized for Commercial, Residential and Rental Real Estate transactions. He is licensed to practice real estate sales in Washington, DC, as well as Maryland and Virginia.
In addition to David’s real estate accomplishments, he also finds time to volunteer for the Whitman-Walker Clinic, Food & Friends, Cherry and other local charities. He loves to cook, is still in training for his private pilot’s license and has recently taken on oil painting as a hobby, completing several works that have been displayed in local art shows.
