Meet David



Originally from a small town in southwestern Indiana, David has been married to his high school sweetheart, Lisa for 37 years. They have 4 wonderful boys – all grown and living on their own now!  David had a wonderful career working at Eli Lilly for 27 years before retiring in 2018 to pursue his dream of working in real estate. Quickly rising through the real estate ranks, David was consistently ranked as one of the top real estate agents when measured up to his peers, but working for the “big guys” lacked the client-first service that David felt was needed. So, in 2020, David took the leap and started his own real estate agency. David specializes in both buyer and seller representation, including first time home buyers, sellers struggling to get their homes sold, commercial real estate and more. David has a knack for helping his clients prosper through real estate. David currently resides in Martinsville, Indiana with his wife and big ol’ sweet labrador retriever, Bandit.

    If you are looking for a realtor that will work extremely hard for you, then I highly encourage you to consider Dave at Orchard Hills Realty! I sold my house in Indianapolis and then bought a house in Greenwood with Dave, and was very impressed with the amount of time that Dave spent helping and guiding me through the process. I am absolutely happy about the level of service. Thank you very much!

    Orchard Hills Realty really knocked it out of the park for me! I struggled selling my house for four months as a “For Sale by Owner” before eventually being referred to Dave Lifford by a friend. Dave quickly let me know some of the key items that I needed to do to my house to make it show better (paint, trimming bushes, etc). Dave also helped with staging and took new pictures. Within 6 days of re-listing my house back on the MLS and having an open house, I had several full price and above asking price offers. Dave did a great job marketing the house and within 35 days of contracting with Dave to help me sell my house, it was sold! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
