David Salmon – President
As a very young man, David showed entrepreneurship in everything he did. Coming from a multi-generation entrepreneur-driven family, David felt he was very lucky to have early experience working with his father and grandfather in the family business. David learned many great lessons in business from his family, not the least of which was great things can be accomplished in life if you believe in yourself and learn to trust your instincts.
Discovering a passion early for real estate finance, as well as speculative investing, David began developing his unique skill at making profits with specialized real estate methods. He offered unique financing services to his friends and potential buyers at a very young age. It was at this time that David learned he had a passion and a strong love for the art of the deal.
After making his first land purchase and a quick profit at the age of 18, David was inspired to start a real estate company that would be different from the rest. David felt the competition was particularly lacking in one area – true service which put caring about your clientele and business associates above all else. A strong part of David’s passion in business then, and still today, is working with people, providing a strong quality of service and making sure everyone is always benefiting.
In 2001, Worthy Real Estate Investments Inc. was founded and David jumped head first into the world of finance, real estate speculation, marketing and sales. In those early years, David had wins and losses, often risking much to push the company ahead and to grow the reputation of the Worthy brand.
Up against heavy competition, Worthy quickly gained traction in the market and developed its own niche, offering unique, specialized financing services to buyers as well as pre-sales and volume sales to contractors and developers all over Vancouver Island.
As Worthy’s brand grew, David set his sights and dreams on the bigger picture. He envisioned a plan to grow the Worthy corporation into a group of strategically positioned real estate companies that worked together in synergy, all under the Worthy name and with the same strong principles that David was brought up to believe in.
Today, David lives on a large hobby farm with his daughter and dog Daisy. Some of his current interests and hobbies include self sustained living projects within the Cowichan Valley, helping with local charities and agricultural focused projects.
