David Hungerford, CCIM

Adjunct Faculty


As a "real world" real estate practitioner, I like to bring examples and experience from the real world into the classroom. Part of this is my own experience as well as inviting other practitioners into the classroom to share theirs. Engaged learning is very important, and to that end I try to simulate the business through class activities and assignments.
