Dave Simms, Realtor®



A University of Iowa business and pre-law major, Dave Simms, found himself in the real estate arena shortly after college. During his tenure with Skogman Homes, he earned his real estate license in 1973 and his broker’s license in 1974. Since then, Dave has garnered a wealth of experience in many areas of the real estate industry, including project management, building, development, budgeting, VA and FHA home loan approval, advertising, sales and marketing.

“My wife of twenty eight years, Penny, and I grew tired of Wisconsin’s damp, cold, gray cloudy days with limited time for boating, fishing and golfing. We traveled for two years exploring the pros and cons of living in CA, TX, AZ, AL, U.S. Virgin Islands, the Atlantic Coast of Florida and the Gulf Coast of Southwest Florida. SW Florida was a no-brainer: No cold days, only occasional cloudy days, lots of sun and warm temperatures, numerous golf courses, expansive waters that provide beaches, boating and fishing, tons of restaurants, countless tourist attractions and many civic events all made this the absolute best choice for our lifestyle.”

Dave ultimately chose CornerStone Coastal Properties, “because of the high level of professionalism and commitment to leading edge technologies. Their websites, branding, selection of individuals with experience and proven track records plus an unsurpassed support team make it a privilege and pleasure to work here at CornerStone Coastal Properties.”
