Dave Fahrner

Associate Partner


Dave Fahrner joined the Terra Firma Global Partners Sonoma Office in 2011. Dave began his real estate career in 1997 serving the Marin County area. Dave’s experience is vast in the real estate industry! Not only is he is an expert in residential real estate services, but he has managed a large corporate real estate office in Greenbrae. Dave has been actively involved with the Marin, North Bay, and California Association of Realtors. After moving to Sonoma County a few years ago, Dave quickly became the “go to” person for real estate sales and advice!

Dave began his real estate career in 1997 with Frank Howard Allen REALTORS® in the Mill Valley Office, located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in southern Marin County.  He was raised in Marin, attended both public and private schools and graduated from UCLA in 1982 with a B.A. in Economics.

In 2003, after 7 years of residential sales, Dave was recruited by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage to serve as the Sales Manager and Branch Manager of the 125 agent Greenbrae office in central Marin County.

Dave became actively involved with his local trade association, the Marin Association of  REALTORS® in 1999.  He was the 2003 Board President in Marin and a Director to the California Association of REALTORS® from 1999 to 2004.  In January 2009, Dave served as a State Director representing NorBar, the North Bay Association of REALTORS®.

Dave and his wife have recently returned to Northern California, moving to Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, having lived for the past 2 1/2 years in Central Oregon. They both missed many aspects of life in the Bay Area, as well as family and friends. To say the least,  “It’s Good to be Home!”

Dave joined Terra Firma Global Partners in February of 2011 after spending two years with Frank Howard Allen in Santa Rosa. Dave is happy to be part of this exciting, dynamic, and forward thinking real estate company.

If you, a friend, or a family member needs help with real estate, Dave would like to be of service to you. Please contact him directly at (707) 477-8781 or by email at davef@TerraFirmaGlobalPartners.com.
