About David Lyng

David Lyng Real Estate is family-owned and locally operated. David and Sally Lyng started their brokerage in 1980 with a small office in Aptos, four Realtors®, and a mission to provide a full-service brokerage focused on delivering an exceptional client experience.


Since then, and under the same vision, we have organically grown our business to include nine offices spread over two counties and over 200 REALTORS®. We at David Lyng Real Estate pride ourselves on being part of the community and supporting local businesses. Since our inception, David Lyng Real Estate has been an active member of the Santa Cruz Association of REALTORS® and numerous local Chamber of Commerce and supported various local charity and nonprofit organizations.


In recent years, David and Sally have welcomed their daughters, Megan and Morgan, into the business. They are honored that their daughters have chosen to follow in their footsteps. This next generation is committed to continuing the company with the same tradition and values David and Sally established in 1980. At David Lyng Real Estate, we care about our clients, agents, and staff and enjoy our work.
