Meet David Goodwin

Your Trusted Carson Valley Real Estate Expert

My journey commenced when my family relocated from Juneau, Alaska, to Lake Tahoe when I was merely a year old. Following my high school graduation, I seized an opportunity to apprentice under a distinguished chef in Connecticut. This experience was profoundly enriching, yet the allure of the West Coast beckoned me back. Opting not to return immediately to Tahoe, I pursued a career at the Pacific Stock Exchange in San Francisco. However, the magnetic pull of the mountains eventually led me back to Tahoe. Eighteen years ago, I settled in the Carson Valley, captivated by the mountainous vistas and the richness of the surrounding areas.

My professional path then led me to a fulfilling role as a Coach with Rite of Passage, an innovative juvenile detention program designed to introduce urban youth to life in more pastoral settings. After six years of impactful work there, I transitioned into the retail outdoor recreation sector, eventually becoming the owner of the Sporting Rage in Carson City.

Subsequent to my tenure at the Sporting Rage, I embarked on a new career direction by studying for and successfully obtaining my real estate license. I immediately joined REMAX REALTY AFFILIATES in Gardnerville, where over twelve years, I had the privilege of learning from some of the most skilled and experienced agents in the Valley. Recently, I transitioned to eXp Realty in Minden, aiming to offer enhanced service and expertise in real estate within the Carson Valley.

I am pleased to provide a comprehensive tour of the Carson Valley for newcomers, acquainting them with the area’s neighborhoods, educational institutions, and the lifestyle preferences of its residents. For those who are enthusiasts of outdoor activities such as skiing, kayaking/paddleboarding, hiking, climbing, and biking, I am well-equipped to guide you to exceptional local destinations.
