Certified Homeownership Professional

One of the most trusted names in Fairfield County Real Estate for over 20 years

David Kinyon is Owner/Proprietor of DK Knows! at William Raveis Real Estate, the #1 real estate company in Connecticut. For over 20 years, he has been regarded as one of the most trusted names in Fairfield County real estate. An award-winning, premier producer, David started out his real estate career winning the coveted Rookie of the Year award and went on to win every major real estate award, including Top Producer, Top Listing Agent, Top Selling Agent, Excellence in Negotiating and Best in Customer Service. Additionally, he is one of the select few Realtors who have won the prestigious Five Star Real Estate Agent award for 12 years. The Five Star award is based not only on real estate sales, but also on seller, buyer and peer reviews as well as recommendations from real estate attorneys and mortgage brokers. David's expert negotiating skills, acquired in his previous job as a NYC advertising executive, have helped him to negotiate the best deals possible for his buyers and sellers. Perhaps the greatest testament to his work, however, is that many of his clients from over 20 years ago are still his clients and friends today.

David's personal philosophy is to work with only a few buyers and sellers at a time, resulting in a stress-free, enjoyable real estate experience. He is fully dedicated to each and every one of his clients. His most recent honors and awards include:
  • "Real Estate Market Leader," Forbes Magazine and FIVE STAR Real Estate Agent
  • "Top Scoring Real Estate Agent in Overall Satisfaction," CONNECTICUT Magazine and FIVE STAR Real Estate Agent (12 year winner)
  • "Chairman's Club Special Achievement Award," personally presented by CEO Bill Raveis and in recognition of being in the top tier of the elite Chairman's Club
  • Honored with multiple awards as Top Selling Agent, Top Listing Agent, Top Producer, Excellence in Negotiating and Best in Customer Service
  • Former Director, Mid-Fairfield County Association of Realtors
  • Awarded "Rookie of the Year" in his first year, a company-wide award for the entire state of CT

In his spare time, David has received recognition from national, state and local organizations for his involvement in Emergency Management & Homeland Security. He volunteers as a FEMA-certified emergency responder for Westport-Weston CERT (Community Emergency Response Team). Helping and assisting residents in Westport, Weston and neighboring towns and cities in the event of a disaster or emergency, he also provides backup to Fire, Police and EMTs. In addition, David is a member of the Westport Astronomical Society and volunteers as a host for Public Night at the Westport Observatory, home of the 16" Meade LX200 telescope.
