Dave Swenson is originally from the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. His Mom was a piano teacher and his Dad a chemist.  Growing up he took private piano lessons through High School and then attended college as a music major at North Texas State University in Denton, TX. He got ill and had to return home. After some time considering his options, he decided to serve in the Marine Corps as a Teletype Technician from 1982-1986. After the Marines he returned home for the summer before moving to Ft. Myers, FL with a friend to work in the wallcovering business.  He met Marsha (his wife) at work and they were married in 1988.  He got his Associates Degree in 1989 with honors from Edison Community College before moving to Sarasota to attend New College to become an Industrial Psychologist.  Alas, liberal arts were not the right fit for him, but he DID love his new home in Sarasota.  He tried several direct sales positions before deciding to start his own business as a wallcovering contractor.  He owned and operated D’nM Wallcovering through 1993, shortly after getting his Real Estate license in 1992.

His first position as a Realtor was with Coldwell Banker. After about 3 years he moved to an independent firm named Creative Realty of Sarasota.  He became its sales manager and subsequently earned his Broker’s license and ended up purchasing the firm in 1997.  He continued as an independent until 2005 when he became a Franchisee with EXIT Realty. At one time Dave had 28 Sales Associates working for the firm.  After the Great Recession he decided to sell his building and merge his firm with an independent company called Atchley International Realty.  In 2016, Atchley affiliated with Better Homes and Gardens.  In 2019, Dave decided he wanted to work with an Independent firm that focused on International Real Estate. He was invited into Ownership at 1st Premier International Properties in July of 2019.  Dave’s vision is to build a team of dynamic multicultural professionals who wish to expand their real estate businesses locally and around the World. As an avid and seasoned traveler (67 countries to date) he has had first-hand experiences in all the continents, except Antarctica. Dave just earned his CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist) designation in November 2019.

Dave and his wife Marsha live in the South Gate community, and they have a cockatiel named Kiwi.  Dave has an active ministry at assisted living facilities where he shares his piano talents, and he’s taken it on the road to several other States in the US.
