Dave graduated from Carroll High School in 1995. He spent the first 23 years of his life in Fort Wayne, and after getting married in 2003, he and his wife decided to move to Auburn where they currently reside.
Dave’s hobbies include hunting, fishing, boating and spending time with his family. Shortly after high school he started a 17 year career in the Steel business, and in 2006 he decided to join the Fire Service. Dave spent 2 years on a Volunteer department before making the transition to the Auburn Fire Department for the last 10 years of his firefighting career.
For quite some time, Dave had contemplated what he wanted to pursue upon his retirement. A few years ago, he decided that he wanted to pursue a career in real estate. “Why you ask?” The decision was easy! He loves helping people. Dave has had the opportunity to make many new friends and meet many amazing people over the years. With the help of his referral partners, he can assist you every step of the way! Dave is always willing to answer questions regarding buying or selling.
My husband met Dave our in the community and felt very strongly that we would be taken care of if we chose him to help with selling and finding a new house. Dave was great about coming for a walkthrough, taking his information home to check comps in order to help us list at the best listing price possible for a well timed sale. He came back to meet with us in person to go over all of his findings and to give us recommendations on listing prices. He always chose to meet in person, which made this process feel so much more personable- which once you meet Dave you realize very quickly that it is just the kind of person he is! Dave felt like a part of the family by the time we finished this process! Our daughter even started calling him “Uncle Dave” by the end! He was always available to answer questions or to meet to go over anything during the process! Also, he has checked in with us several times after closing to make sure things are going well! Treva was very professional and polite. Vickie helped to get all of our paperwork to us in a quick manner! Very thankful for her! Selling and buying a new home is a stressful process but when you have someone like Dave on your side it is much better! He made sure we understood every step of the process and we’re not surprised as we went along because we were already well informed about next steps.

Dave's professionalism has no equal. I thrust Dave into probably one of his worst client experiences and he was still beyond patient, kind and smiled through it all. Dave genuinely has a love for the clients he serves and given his expertise, my ex--wife and I were able to sell our home within 48 hours. I would not hesitate to use Dave again in the future!
I met Dave by chance at an open house this spring. Several months later I was closing my own with him. I really appreciated the environment Dave provided. I never felt as though I was being pressured into purchasing. I can't thank you enough, thanks for everything Dave.

We have known Dave for awhile and have become good friends. So we knew when it was time to sell our house we would have Dave be the agent. We knew he would work endlessly to get the property sold. We highly recommend him!!! He always made himself available for us if we had any questions

We are new to the area due to a job change. We asked one person for a recommendation, and Dave Clark was the name that came up. Since then, we have had several other people offer Dave's name as the realtor to work with. Dave has been incredibly friendly and professional from the first phone call. With every interaction, Dave has made us feel like we are the most important clients he has. We gave Dave a list of our wants and non-negotiable needs and our price range. He never once showed us a home that didn't check off the needs list or was near the top or over our price range. Within a week of starting our search, we had an accepted offer on a home that is perfect for our family.

My girlfriend and I weren’t actively looking to buy a house until we saw one that had recently came back on the market. Early that morning (a Sunday) we text Dave, who we met while out and about in our community, to see if we could look at it. We text him at 9:30 and he called us back within the hour. After talking about it briefly we decided we’d like to walk through it. He was able to get us in the home by noon. We ended up loving it and wanted to write an offer. We met Dave at his office and had an offer written by 3:30 that afternoon. They accepted the offer by 6:30 that evening. Dave’s willingness to help us on a weekend helped us get into a home we loved. He was a great communicator during the entire process. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. We enjoyed his help so much we are currently working with him to sell my girlfriends house. I would highly recommend Dave Clark to buy or sell!
My husband I worked with two other brokers in Indiana and one in Ohio before we met Dave. None really listened. Dave always listened and provided the insights we needed. Dave was always available, responded faster than we could’ve hoped for and is the consummate professional. He truly went above and beyond at every step, always anticipating our questions. Dave’s knowledge, friendly demeanor, dedication and constant support through the purchase and possession of our new home was beyond compare. We cannot thank Dave enough for his patience and thoroughness to help us find and purchase a property that met our tall list of needs. Thank you!

If your looking to buy or sell we HIGHLY recommend Dave.

Dave possesses a good blend of professionalism while being personable with his clients and potential buyers. As well, he is skillful at handling the 'ups & downs' of the buy/sell process. Dave kept us informed and up to date every step of the way. Whenever we needed to do something, he made us aware and guided us through to the right outcome. Overall, we are certainly appreciative of his representation and handling of our successful property sale.

Dave was Incredible! He's the guy you want in your corner. This guy fights for what you want and we couldn't be happier. Dave went above and beyond to make our dreams come true. As first time home buyers we needed someone to lead us into a new home and Dave was that and more. His communication was amazing as he kept us in the loop throughout the whole process. We had a hiccup with financing and Dave was there to help push things along so we could close on time. Dave is knowledgeable and professional and treats clients like they matter. Even though we only met because of the home buying process we can honestly say that we feel like he's more of a friend then our realtor. Dave deserves all the praise he gets. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
