David has been full time in the residential real estate industry for 24 years.

Five years ago, he created his own residential brokerage brand; Roycroft Realty and gained the unique challenging experience as a startup. He understands branding, niche marketing and logistics at a high ethical level. David gets the idea of doing everything locally and supporting small business.

Born and raised in the North East LA and the San Gabriel Valley, David understands his neighborhoods, culture and landmarks at such a level that his clients feel like they are on a historical tour when showing buyers and sellers. Even if properties stretch from Glendora west to Santa Clarita, or from Valencia south to Monterey Park.
After graduating college, David left engineering for real estate to invest and start with a heavy dose of commercial, income and rehab of properties until he found his niche with historic properties. He built his own replica Craftsman home on Christmas Tree Lane 10 years ago.
After representing many landmark properties and serving on many local preservation boards, like Pasadena Heritage and South Pasadena City Cultural Heritage Commission, he decided to brand himself as a preservation agent.

Before getting his broker's license, he gathered the NAR, Certified HAFA and Certified New Home Specialist designations.
Being an artist for over 30 years and coming from an art-teaching family, David has been a drummer and percussionist over 3 decades, from Eagle Rock (LAUSD) until today, drumming in a blues band playing locally.

David lives in San Marino, married with 3 young adult kids. He looks forward serving his clients real estate needs. read less «

David is an honest and respectful realtor. He has many years of experience and knows the Pasadena and surrounding area very well. He is always available to take your call and inquiries. I have bought and sold homes with David and I recommend him to everyone.

We worked with Dave Melford on buying AND selling both our houses in the Pasadena area. He listed to what we wanted and helped us find the right places. He also did a great job of facilitating our last sale after we had relocated out of state, and really went over and beyond to make sure the sale would close on time. I would (and have already) recommended Dave to anyone who wants an engaged realtor who listens to your needs and desires when buying or selling a house.

He has successfully managed both a sale and a purchase of two different homes for me. He was extremely professional in all business matters. I would unequivocally again use his services. Always a pleasure to work with him.

It is our first home purchase. David is extremely patient, understanding and responsive during the process. There is an issue with the seller but David was there to negotiate on a deal to get us some discount. At the end of the sale, David prepared us a file book which organizes all the important documents of the sale process. My husband and I are extremely thankful to have worked with David.
