David Allen has been a property and investment professional for over 30 years. Transacting and managing assets for superannuation funds, not for profit and private families, David gained knowledge and experience operating within this formal investment & process structure.

Since founding DA Properties David has been able to leverage knowledge, experience and relationships to property investment and development opportunities in three distinct areas:

  • As a property investment and development advisor for not for profit and private family groups
  • As a cornerstone co-investor and manager for development and investment projects
  • As a coach to guide others to optimise their own development project and experience

The principles that underpin these three areas apply across all property investment and property development, as does the framework and process. It is the approach to each opportunity that is bespoke, each property is unique and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’.

David is a Certified Fund Manager and a Certified Property Practitioner of the Australia Property Institute, and the Key Person for the business’ Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL). He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Property Resource Management (Valuation) from the University of South Australia and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Western Australia (Finance).

David resides on the northern beaches of Sydney with his wife, daughter and the family cat. A lover of the outdoors he continues to swim, bike, run and ski as much as he can. David is also one of the founding members of Tour de Kids, an annual charity bike ride that has raised over $9 million for Australian children charities over the last 20 years.
