- Successful Pivot From Real Estate
- 60+ Clients
- Keynotes All Over North America
When the real estate market began to crumble in 2007, the clients purchasing real estate leads from GMHV literally started getting out of the industry. The writing on the wall was clear, so Dave's team pivoted into a marketing agency. That agency still exists today in Lancaster, PA, without Dave's involvement.
President & Co-Founder
- Inc 500 Award
- 65 Employees
- 10,000 Customers
After real estate sales leads began coming in from areas all over the United States, Dave & his team created a business model selling these leads to more than 10,000 real estate agents. The business grew so quickly that they were featured in Inc Magazine 2 years in a row for having one of the fastest growing companies in the country. This is where Dave learned, first hand, how digital marketing can transform business.
Real Estate Agent
- First Keynote On Growing A Real Estate Business
- Presidents Elite Award
Starting in real estate, Dave built a successful real estate agency using cold calling as a core business growth strategy. When he started working with a lot of clients, he didn't have time to cold call and decided to build a website to generate leads. The leads started coming in all over the country, which led him to his next endeavor.
