Hi, I’m David Pannell and I sell real estate in Fort Worth Texas. I’ve really enjoyed the challenges of building a real estate business. We’re pretty proud of the network we have created and love how our community Like's & Shares what we’re doing. Growing a real estate business is has been a process. I learned early on to care about my clients needs, find quick solutions and always get them the best results. Today, I’m helping my agents use VIDEO in their business, the community and small business. At CITIES Real Estate we are excited to express ourselves through all types of social media; especially VIDEO media. We get 1000’s of hits a month on our videos, and social media profiles and our website

Real Estate isn't all yard signs, newspaper ads anymore. EVERY property price can be influenced by its presentation, method of sale, marketing, and skill of the agent.

Our video marketing of a recent listing influenced a home price by $22,000 dollars more than expected. We achieve quicker sales, better results and we’re crushing our competition. At CITIES Real Estate, we’re on a quest to be industry leaders. Seeing is believing I say alot. We’re changing the standards of a real estate property listings and we love what we do. - See more at:
