Dave's initial foray into real estate was through the mortgage industry, which he started in 2002. One year later, he progressed full time into real estate and hasn't looked back since! That said, many of the essential skills he learned during his time as a mortgage professional— excellent communication, great organizational skills, analytical risk assessment, research skills, and more—have formed the foundation for his prosperous real estate career.
Numerous accolades and distinguishments adorn Dave's resume. He has won the EXIT Realty Corporation International Bronze Award eight times and followed that with the Silver Award in 2019 and 2020. Dave is ranked in the Top 100 (#35) for the company out of 25,000 Realtors in the USA and Canada and is one of Minnesota's Top 100 Most Influential Realtors (out of a pool of 20,000 licensed realtors in Minnesota!).
Dave enjoys spending time with his wife and their two kids, mountain biking, running, traveling with his family, scuba diving, downhill skiing, playing piano & guitar and more.

We never dreamed we would make any money from the sale of our house in Coon Rapids. We were buying a new house in Brainerd and just wanted to get it sold. Dave was introduced to us by the agent who was helping us buy our new house in Brainerd. She told us she had worked with Dave many times and He was the best. She was right! He told us if we did what he suggested we would make money and sell the house fast. We did everything he recommended and the house was sold within 2 weeks on the market. We are so grateful to Dave and would highly recommend him.— Penny N.
Dave and his team did an outstanding job of representing me during the process of listing, showcasing, and completing the process of selling my home. It is the second time I have engaged Dave to partner with me. On both occasions, Dave has been consistent, responsive, reliable, professional, polished. What I appreciated most is that he set realistic milestones, pricing, and kept me fully informed at every step in the process. I highly recommend Dave Doran to homeowners expecting a concierge level of realtor services.— Chris C.
I'd give Dave 10 stars if I could. Buying a home in this current market can be a frustrating experience. But, with Dave as my realtor, I felt in such good hands the entire time I never lost hope. Dave is incredibly responsive and is so knowledgeable about the entire process, I felt like I could ask him anything at any time. I've finally closed on my home and I couldn't be happier. Dave goes the extra mile to smooth out any bumps along the way, I'm so appreciative of him and absolutely recommend contacting him.— Julie C.
He knows the industry inside and out and it is apparent. He is never too busy for his client. No matter how big or small it may seem, he can be counted on to be there and get the job done. Give Dave a call today!
