Danny Harvey brings a wealth of knowledge and industry experience to Essex and Harvey.  Before becoming one of the Westsides most successful and well-respected Realtors, Danny made a name for himself in the banking industry and for more than 16 years and contributed to the success of several of the largest financial institutions in the nation.  As head of operations for the San Antonio Division of University Savings Association, he gained first-hand knowledge of all facets of the lending industry.

Danny holds a BBA in marketing from McMurry University in Texas.  He managed the Residential Real Estate Owned Divisions as a Vice president at Nations Bank and the J.E.
