Meet David Strasser

Founding and leading Vancouver Island’s #1 RE/MAX team began in 2002 when David focused his University of British Columbia law degree on real estate and corporate transactions. Still in his early twenties, David grew a thriving real estate investment business in Vancouver then moved to Victoria to pursue elite rowing with Rowing Canada, alongside his passion for real estate.

In 2006 David became a licensed RE/MAX Realtor® and quickly established himself as an industry leader for real estate sales and marketing in Greater Victoria. He opened a RE/MAX satellite office with a team of skilled real estate professionals, and partnered with Harbour View Mortgages to provide a comprehensive one-stop-shop for real estate services in the historic downtown building at 510 Yates, which now houses the AREAS Real Estate Team. In 2009 David’s real estate team became the #1 RE/MAX team on Vancouver Island, and was in the Top 100 RE/MAX Teams in Canada for five consecutive years. David is a repeat Top Producer and Special MLS Gold Winner; he has received the RE/MAX Chairman’s Award, and the RE/MAX Hall of Fame award. He has been requested to speak at conferences in recognition of his outstanding achievements in marketing and branding.

Born in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, David spent most of his childhood in Calgary then traveled the world before finding his home in beautiful Victoria. He lives with his life partner, Katie, their son Jakob James, their daughter Yael Feist, and a growing collection of dogs, geese, and free roaming chickens. David is an avid cyclist: he trains with the Pacific Cycling Center and races in the red and black for the Russ Hay’s Elite Racing Team. David supports a variety of charities including Ryder Hesjedal’s Wheelmen, the BC Ride to Conquer Cancer, Think Pink 2020, and his office is a proud supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network. David and Katie are advocates for environmental sustainability, organic farming, and alternative energy.
