"Dave is extremely knowledgeable and 100% honest. He was obviously more interested in helping us find and buy the "right" house rather than to just make a sale. He would point out the positive as well as the negative aspects of houses we were considering without ever attempting to influence our decision making process. A great agent. Highly recommended." - Ed

"Dave has been my neighbor for 18 years, we like our neighborhood, last year I decided to sell our home and chose Dave to represent us. Dave's knowledge of the overall market, and his uncanny knowledge of the city of Boulder real estate helped us arrive at realistic listing price. We had a strong contract within weeks. Dave always kept our best interest above everything. The rest is history. No, I didn't leave the neighborhood, we moved one house to the north now we live directly across the street from Dave. We'll probable do this again down the road. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking to make a real estate transaction in Boulder or anywhere else for that matter." - Michael

"Dave is a really nice guy and a very easy realtor to work with. He helped us get the house that we wanted before it was even on the market thanks to his knowledge and expertise. Also, as a Boulder native, there really isn't a better person to introduce you to the city if you're moving from out of town." - Whitney

"Having worked with Dave Naber on several residential real estate transactions in the Boulder area, I heartily endorse his sales and marketing acumen, his interpersonal skills and organizational abilities, as well as his consummate professionalism. He is quite well connected in the Boulder area and has superb knowledge of the Boulder residential real estate market. If you need highly personal and effective assistance with your real estate transactions, you will be pleased to work with Dave." - Susan

"I moved to Boulder in 2003 with a very limited knowledge of the Boulder area and even less about its housing market. As a lifetime renter, I also had no experience in buying a home. Dave made the process a smooth and painless one. Affordable homes in Boulder sell quickly, so I expected a long search. But being a lifetime Boulder resident must have its advantages, because Dave quickly found a home that met every one of my criteria, and found it in a great neighborhood that I never would have known about. He phoned me the same day the home was listed, and I made an offer that day, which was accepted. He guided me through the inspection and closing process, and even helped paint the place after I closed. Where else can you find that level of service? Overall, a very satisfied customer." - Jason

About Dave
Born and raised in Boulder, with more than thirty years of real estate experience, Dave Naber has ranked among the Rocky Mountain Region’s top brokers. He is now a member of the Compass team in both Boulder and Vail, where he has been skiing since the 1970s. With a business driven almost exclusively by referrals, Dave anticipates client needs, providing tailored and highly responsive service.

As an advocate for his clients, he navigates unknown terrain with a calm demeanor and steady hand, wisely negotiating each deal and empowering them to make educated real estate decisions. Working with him, you might see some houses, then put on cleats and go on a bike ride together, explore a powder day, or discover the best restaurants a short walk from CU-Boulder, where Dave graduated with a history degree.

Benefiting from his strong relationships with local contractors and other service providers, you could easily connect with a master carpenter who creates exact finishings to match details in your new vintage house, or an architect who can bring your modern design vision to life.

Dave has bought and renovated residential and investment properties in Boulder and Vail, including one of downtown Boulder’s oldest homes. Building on his happy childhood memories, he and his wife Becky now share a deep love for skiing, hiking, and mountain biking in both towns with their daughter, Hattie. (Ask him about their golden retriever’s favorite sunrise spots, or his collection of thousands of vintage outdoor photos from Boulder, Vail, and Aspen.)
