Meet David Orso

Meet David

Anyone who knows David Orso knows he’s the kind of Realtor—and person—you want on your side. As the #1 agent in Anne Arundel County for the past SEVEN years running, David is committed to delivering superior results for his clients by pairing the experience you can count on with the knowledge you deserve.

Born and raised in Annapolis, David’s local roots run deep, and he’s eternally passionate about the place he calls home. After receiving a Division 1 golf scholarship to the University of Dayton and graduating with a degree in Psychology, David launched his career in business, working for Coca-Cola USA and Marriott. He earned his MBA from Loyola University with a concentration in Strategic Marketing, a move that helped him to further hone his creative instincts and analytical skills. David began building a investment portfolio of investment properties and struggled to find a smart, responsive, and knowledgeable agent who could help him achieve his real estate goals.  David ventured into the real estate as an agent with a vision of raising the professional bar and becoming the elite real estate agent in Anne Arundel County by providing his clients with a smart and thoughtful approach to selling and buying real estate.

Since 2003, David has paved the way to a more rewarding—and accessible—real estate solution, so his clients never have to feel overwhelmed, stuck, or left to do all the work themselves as he once did. Today, he has managed well over 1,000 residential transactions and has sold almost a billion dollars of real estate in Anne Arundel County over.  This ruthless commitment to superior representation has earned David the recognition of being named one of the ten best Real Estate agents in America.  He’s best known by clients for his tireless work ethic, exhaustive market insight, and straightforward, professional approach. David also leads with authenticity, cultivating genuine relationships with clients that endure long after the contract has been signed. It’s no surprise, then, that he’s been voted the Best Real Estate Agent by the readers of the Severna Park Voice for the last seven consecutive years, Voted Best Customer Service for ALL business by What’s Up Magazine or that he’s built a robust referral network that accounts for 90% of his new business. Once someone works with David, there’s no going back—or keeping it to themselves.

It’s no coincidence that real estate combines so many of David’s qualifications and talents into one complete package, from his degree in Psychology and apt love of working with people, to his MBA in Strategic Marketing, to his sweeping familiarity with the Anne Arundel community—the place where it all started, and naturally, where he chose to establish his ever-growing business. David also decided to sharpen one more skill set in his arsenal, which led him to Harvard Law School’s prominent Program on Negotiation, where he learned to strategically—and relentlessly—advocate for his clients’ best interests to turn every aspiration into reality.

Along with his curated educational background and expertise, David has formed a team of specialists who act as personal touchpoints for clients throughout each phase of the home search or sale process. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned investor, David is dedicated to getting to know you, creating a plan that’s tailored to your specific needs, and delivering a full-service, personalized, and value-driven experience that redefines the industry’s standard of excellence.

So well-documented is David’s real estate prowess and thought leadership, he has published a book on the topic. “Step Inside: The Unfiltered Truth About Listing and Selling Your Home” which exposes the biggest myths in real estate today and gives consumers a glimpse into the trade secrets of going from listed to sold seamlessly and successfully. 100% of proceeds from sales benefit the Anne Arundel Medical Center Breast Center.

David’s devotion as a Realtor is the vehicle to improve his community.  The Orso Family is committed to making their community a better place through involvement with organizations such as: The Building Traditions Society Board of Directors, The Pediatric Council at Anne Arundel Medical Center, The Visit Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Chairman’s Advisory Committee, the Broadneck Area Youth Sports program, and The Severna Park Community Center, where he’s the Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Orso Family has donated more than $500,000 to local charities in Anne Arundel County and as David likes to say, “we are just getting started”. 

When he’s not representing clients or giving back to his community, David can usually be found boating with his wife and three children in the Annapolis area.
