As a business owner, employee, husband, father, church member and community volunteer, David Haire stays pretty busy. 

“It’s a juggling act,” Haire admitted, but he’s not complaining. Instead, he focuses on the things in life that mean the most to him and goes from there. 

“I really enjoy being a dad,” Haire said. “That’s the most important thing.” 

Haire and his wife, Monique, have three children: Eden, 5; Jonathan, 3; and Emily, 6 months. Life with three young children can be a bit crazy at times, but Haire said he loves it and is grateful to have “a good partner” in Monique. The two are homeschooling their oldest, and Haire said he enjoys being part of that as well. 

An Evansville native, Haire said being close to family was one reason he decided to return to his hometown to raise a family. After graduating from Goshen College, Haire lived in Indianapolis for a while. While he enjoyed living in the larger city, Haire knew that Evansville was where he wanted to be when he and his wife began their family.

In addition to family, faith is extremely important to Haire. He and his family are involved with City Church in downtown Evansville. They host a small group of young families at their home for Bible study and fellowship.

Haire enjoys being with people and helping families in various ways. He uses that passion for helping others in his career as a real estate agent with F.C. Tucker Emge. 

“It’s a special feeling to help someone buy or sell a house,” Haire said. 

When Haire was in college, he didn’t plan on going into real estate. Instead, he studied accounting and business and became an accountant. He was a senior account analyst for Vectren but realized that wasn’t the career path he wanted to be on.

“I liked being out with people,” Haire said. He began investing in real estate with his father, and the two still work together as co-owners of Rabbit Investments, LLC, where they buy properties and rent them out.

Haire said being an Evansville native who chose to return home is helpful when working with real estate clients. 

“One of the things I love about real estate is I get the opportunity to sell the area,” Haire said. Having a sincere appreciation for what the community is and all it has to offer makes it easy to encourage others to move to Evansville. 

Over the years, Haire has been involved with various community groups and organizations. One that is especially close to his heart is Jacob’s Village, a community of homes and apartments for people with disabilities and older residents. 

“That’s very important to me,” said Haire, who serves on the board of directors there. 

“I had an uncle who had Down syndrome,” Haire explained. His uncle, who passed away last year, was an important part of his life. Haire said it was nice that he was able to live in a community instead of being in a home, so Haire wants to make sure that opportunity remains available to others with special needs. 

“David sincerely cares about people,” said Carol McClintock, a broker associate at F.C. Tucker, who nominated Haire for 20 Under 40. 

“David is just a stellar individual,” McClintock added. “He’s the whole package – wonderful family man, he works for his family business, and for us he is a valued team member. He takes wonderful care of his clients.” 

Haire said being chosen for 20 Under 40 was a quite an honor. 

“I’m grateful to Carol McClintock for nominating me,” he added, “and I’m grateful to be on her team at F.C. Tucker.” 

It’s that feeling of gratitude that inspires Haire to be involved in the community. 

“I feel very blessed and fortunate to be where I am in life,” Haire said. “I just want to help those who are less fortunate.”
