Dave Fahrner

Associate Partner


Dave Fahrner has been a full-time REALTOR® since 1997 and is an Associate Partner with Terra Firma Global Partners in Santa Rosa. He serves his clients mainly in Sonoma County and in Marin County, where he began his career. Dave was born and raised in Marin and earned his B.A. in Economics at UCLA.

He and his wife, Kate, moved to Sonoma County in 2008 and love calling Santa Rosa and the wine country their home! From walking their dogs in a friend’s vineyard to exploring back roads by bicycle and savoring the rich bounty and diversity of local food and wine, they’ve never felt more settled or content than living in Sonoma County. This happiness and sense of place drives Dave’s passion and enthusiasm as a REALTOR® to serve his clients.
