What does home mean to us?

Home identifies the story of who we are. It’s where the heart is. Home is the body of what we love.

What does home mean to Dave?

Home is a place where I’m able to relax and unwind with family and close friends.  Home is spending time with my wife, Lilia, and my little girl, Natalie. In my life, home has been St. Mary’s County, MD, Baltimore, MD, and Washington, DC.  Somehow and some way, I have always ended up back home where I grew up in St. Mary’s County, and I love and appreciate it. That’s why I started Lighthouse Title back home.

Professional background

Dave is the Principal and Founder of Lighthouse Title and a Maryland and District of Columbia licensed attorney with extensive experience in all aspects of the real estate process. He has worked in the legislature (where laws are made), the judiciary (where laws are interpreted), and in a number of private practice settings (where the rubber meets the road). Link to Schoolhouse Rock if you’re interested (“I’m just a bill…”). Dave started his career spending time in both the small and large law firm settings where he represented a wide variety of real estate stakeholders from purchasers and sellers of property to landlords, tenants, banks, credit unions, builders, developers, and real estate brokers. In 2013, Dave transitioned into in-house corporate counsel and title company executive roles where he was grateful to have been able to learn from, advise, and work alongside some of the best and brightest real estate minds in the industry in virtually all aspects of the real estate process. In 2020, after the birth of a child, a global pandemic, and a ton of nostalgia, Dave was proud to have made the difficult decision to step down from an executive role at an industry-leading title company to start his own companies back home, Lighthouse Title and the Stamm Law Firm, LLC. In his free time, Dave enjoys spending as much time outside as possible with his family and friends. He loves all sports, but he is an enthusiastic supporter of the Washington Capitals and his country and club soccer teams: the United States National Team and DC United.
