"A Full Service Realtor Specializing in Assisting First Time Home Buyers, Condo and Single Family Home Sales and Landlord and Tenant Services"
Dave Straub's earliest experiences in real estate and customer service include several years as a Sales Consultant for an independent general contractor, and in the Hotel/Restaurant industry where he worked for a number of prestigious corporations including an internationally respected hotel in New York and a well known Chicago marketing firm in several high-profile customer service and management positions.
Dave took that customer service and sales experience and applied it to a new career in real estate in 2002 as a Leasing Consultant. He immediately became the top-producing agent with one of the highest grossing apartment rental agencies in Lincoln Park. Two years later Dave took his knowledge of leasing and started his own leasing division within a well-respected sales and development company in the Roscoe Village area, coordinating all leasing, management and directing duties while continuing to serve as a top producing agent.
Dave turned his attention to sales and joined @properties in June 2005, and along with his team marketed and sold out several condo conversion buildings in record time, all the while assisting individual buyers, sellers and investors. As a sales consultant, Dave brings with him a vast knowledge of the Chicago neighborhoods, the commitment to quality customer care and the sales and marketing skills necessary in the fast-paced and competitive Chicago real estate market.
Dave takes great pride in providing his customers with impeccable attention to detail paired with the best real estate services available. He has lived in Chicago since 1997 and is proud to call it home. Dave has resided in Bucktown, Wicker Park, and Lakeview and currently lives in the Lincoln Square neighborhood. In his spare time, Dave enjoys traveling, hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, golf and all the amazing activities that city life has to offer, as well as spending lots of time with family and friends.
