David Abbate

Broker, Owner & Co-Founder

With a background in Construction and Mechanical Engineering (USF, BSME), David brings a lot of knowledge to home buying and selling, especially ones needing rehabbing and construction or just getting in shape to sell. This lead him to switch his focus from engineering to real estate full-time in 2005. Those 5 years as a full-time realtor gave him the knowledge and experience needed to start a brokerage. In 2010 RTT Realty was born. Today RTT Realty is still staying true to the philosophy David started with, put simply “Smarter, Better, Faster”. David’s ever growing knowledge base and thirst for better, more efficient ways of doing business is unmatched in the industry. From development to large scale investment projects to first time buyers and sellers, he has done it all.
