David Bonavita

My last name, Bonavita, of Italian origin, translates to "good life". My namesake is my daily reminder to live a good life every day through my actions, how I live, where I live, and the people with whom I choose to surround myself.  Just as much, I want a good life for my clients as well. Find out more about me

Left Brain, Right Brain

With 20+ years in digital user experience design and product development, I have been able to utilize left brain and right brain thinking to deliver products and experiences that execute creative problem solving for logical everyday business solutions.  Being able to blend these two mindsets in one brain is rare, but powerful, and I have been fortunate to carry these skills over to real estate.  The real estate market is continuously changing and evolving.  A nimble mind is necessary to keep you as a home buyer or seller at the forefront of the business.  I'd love to meet with you and show you how I will help you achieve success. 



I have 20+ years in the digital business world creating innovative, bespoke solutions.  I have a strong formal education with a BA in Psychology, a Certificate in Internet Technology, and a MS in Organizational Leadership. Continuous learning is a way of life and something I strive to do everyday.


My genuine interest in art, photography, architecture, interior design, and digital design fine tunes my design knowledge and tastes to surface what makes a home a home. Utilizing my creativity to market and reach my audience is a fun and challenging aspect of the ever changing landscape of the business world today.


I am a self-proclaimed home body.  I love my home.  I love to be home.  I love to explore what makes a home a home.  Is it the people? Is it the location? Is it the contents of the home? It is the vibe and energy you feel? Yes to all. I also love to study architecture and interior design and all the subtleties that makes each home special and unique.  



I have worked in the business world for over two decades with varied and broad exposure to many industries.  I have extensive global travel experience and have lived abroad.  I have two college degrees.  I'm a home owner and an active board member of my co-op. All of these attributes have allowed me to become well rounded and versed in the complex and multi layered market of New York real estate.
