I’m Dave Raaf and I'm the real estate partner who will advocate for you.
My professional background and life experiences make me the right real estate partner for you.
Considering construction or renovation and wondering where to start?
I can help you with the numbers. I’ve managed a steel service center and first line production orders, and I’ve been an estimator for commercial metal stud and sheetrock construction. I’m technically trained as a structural steel detailer and erection drawing planner/detailer. I started my own construction company that provided deep foundation support for existing and new construction. I successfully sold the company and became President/CEO of an original manufacturing company in that same industry (deep foundation support). In this role I answered to a Board of Directors—my report card was the financial balance sheet. I bring construction experience and “spreadsheet thinking” to the table.
I enjoy getting to know people—and I really enjoy helping them. I appreciate that everyone has a story. At one point I started an internet radio station that focused on talk radio. Each guest I talked with largely had first-hand information on their subject, including retired military special force, retired CIA, authors, and many other amazing people. I have interviewed many war heroes and patriots.
There are a lot of great people and a lot of great stories at Lake of the Ozarks. I’ve been coming to LOTO since the mid-1960’s and have been a full-time resident since 2010. I know the area well and I still make new discoveries I’m excited to tell people about. Since many buyers and sellers are from outside of the LOTO area or even in another state, I get to share my area knowledge with them. I often partner with long distance owners who rely on my transparency and ability to share information with them despite the distance. My background as President/CEO of a national organization with projects across the country has made me well-accustomed to these partnerships.
I’d be excited to work with you on properties of any size! Let me know how I can help.
