With more than 24 years of real estate experience in Fairfield County, CT, David Hawes and Holly Saunders Hawes are well known for their ability to find their clients the perfect home. A husband and wife dynamic duo, Holly and David work together as the “Hawes Team” and combine their super powers. They joined Wheeler Real Estate in Darien in 1988 and quickly became managing partners, responsible for turning a 12 agent office into an active 60 agent office prior to Wheeler joining the Halstead family.
Both Holly and David grew up in Darien and raised their two children here. Their backgrounds provide valuable insight into the Fairfield County market to prospective homebuyers.
Committed, caring, and conscientious are just a few words that describe Holly. Her knowledge of real estate transactions combined with her personable style and former career as registered nurse provide the know-how and the TLC required to be highly successful in real estate.
Prior to working as a real estate broker, David worked as a custom home builder for 20 years, during which he founded DK Hawes, Inc. Equipped with an extensive knowledge of home construction and a wide range of solid relationships in the building trades, David is able to offer his clients access to his vast connections of resources as well as to provide broad, practical real estate advice. He previously served on the legislative committee of the Connecticut Association of Realtors.
In nice weather, the Hawes Team can be found boating and fishing on Long Island Sound. David is an avid photographer and gardener as well as being active in the community. He founded the Darien Police Boat Fundraiser that fulfilled its goal of providing the local marine unit with a state-of-the-art, fully-equipped police boat and served as Vice-Chairman of the Darien Police Department Building Committee. Holly also gives back to the community as a board member of the Darien Social Services Commission and works with the Darien Senior Center and Friendly Visitor Program.
Holly & David go beyond and above the call of duty. They walked me through my house and made suggestions on the best way to market and prepare it for sale. Their motto is – the more prepared you are, the quicker the sale. And I can attest to their philosophy.” - SSC - Darien
