Working directly with his clients to help them achieve their dreams, Dave Blum is ready to go head-to-head with any obstacle in their way. “It’s so satisfying when you can help your client get the home they want even after it seems that it isn’t going to happen,” explains Blum, an agent with Dream Town Realty. Blum’s wife, Allison, rounds out the two-member Blum Group.
Serving buyers and sellers in the northwestern suburbs and on Chicago’s North Side, Blum, a longtime Park Ridge resident, educates his clients throughout the process, preparing them for each step so they feel empowered and informed. “I never push them, because it’s one of the biggest purchases that they will ever make and I want to make sure that they are thrilled and the home is right for them,” he says, adding that building enduring relationships founded on trust is paramount to his success.
Prior to becoming a licensed broker four years ago, Blum excelled in sales and marketing management for over two decades. Motivated by the prospect of owning a business, Blum began the next phase of his career in 2016, applying the same high-level negotiation skills and follow-up capabilities to real estate transactions. He is now a top producer at Dream Town and a premier agent with Zillow, ranking among the “Best of Zillow” for several months. “I know what it takes to get deals done,” he says. “My attention to detail is unparalleled, and nothing slips through the cracks.”
Outside of work, Blum is on the board of the nonprofit organization Park Ridge Baseball/Softball and is a massive sports fan. Even though his days of coaching his kids’ sports teams are behind him, the relationships he built with the other kids and their families remain to this day.
