Dave Carlson
Lake Homes Realty
About Dave

Dave has successfully helped families with all their real estate needs since 1989 starting with one of the first agencies in Chittenden County to offer Buyer representation and Dave has represented the best interests of hundreds of Buyers since then. In early 2008 Dave joined the small select group of experienced agents at Chenette Real Estate. About this time, foreclosures started to enter into the Vermont market at an increasing rate and Dave jumped on the opportunities that presented themselves. Being a detail-oriented person and one who loves hard work he established a close relationship with Vermont Housing Finance Agency and represented them on the majority of their 70+ purchases of foreclosed homes that were renovated and then resold under their affordable loan programs. That volume of business put him in the top 17% of dollar volume for all agents in Vermont and in the top 5% for number of units. Five years later, with the normalization of the Vermont real estate market Dave got back to helping primarily first-time and move-up buyers and selling farms, lakefront and investment properties. In 2018, born from his life-long love for Lake Champlain, Dave opened the largest national brokerage specializing in lakefront properties here in Vermont, called Lake Homes Realty. Dave and his wife Nancy live on beautiful Mallett's Bay in Colchester where they enjoy the activities, the wildlife and the splendor of each season. Dave’s approach in real estate can be described as: your FriendInRealEstate. He’ll be there to help you all the way, whether you plan on buying or selling next week or next year.
