  Home Buyers Home Sellers is pleased to have Dave Kohl on our side. Dave has served as Marketing Director of the Chicago area's leading real estate specific marketing agency, First In Promotions, since it's inception in 1992.

Hundreds of agents, brokers, and investors, are familiar with Dave through a variety of workshops, seminars, meetups, and presentations at venues such as real estate offices, industry conferences and expos, retailers, co-working spaces, and classrooms throughout the Chicago area.

His extensive broadcasting and public speaking experience adds value whether he acts as keynote speaker, presenter, host, and/or organizer of real estate related events.

During 2018, Dave presented at the Midwest Real Estate Summit; Virtual Reality For Real Estate Panel; Chicago Rehabapolooza; Deal Vault Dinner & Demo; Chicago REIA; Floor & Decor design events; and leading real estate and builder offices including Keller Williams O'Hare and ZSD Builders.

Dave's experience with coordinating industry events goes back to the 90's when he developed a commercial real estate seminar series while serving as Affiliates Director for the Los Angeles CCIM Chapter. This was after his "Open House Hotline" service led to his being chosen "Business Person of the Year" for 1990 by the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce.

More importantly, he is just as comfortable in front of a group of hundreds of people as he is doing internal office presentations about marketing a specific property. His having created numerous Feasibility Studies, Operations Manuals, and Sales Manuals for both real estate and small business adds to his skills for developing our workshops, seminars, and networking events from start to finish.
