Dave Foster

Dave Foster is a real estate investor and qualified intermediary, who believes that real estate is an investment in the future.

Experience
Dave’s 20 years of experience working in all phases of real estate investing—from large scale development to single family homes and vacation rentals—have given him a keen eye for opportunity and a clear vision for reducing the impact of taxes.

A degreed accountant with a master’s in management, Dave is regional director for Exchange Resource Group and has recently launched his own educational website at The1031Investor.com. Dave has built his reputation on being a driven, results-oriented 1031 exchange qualified intermediary, who works relentlessly to maximize value for the real estate investors he works with.

Dave is inspired by a genuine desire to help those around him succeed and continuously strives to create win-win situations. He has taught numerous certified continuing education courses on investment tax strategies. His particular focus on basic and advanced 1031 exchange topics has made him a popular guest speaker for local Realtor associations, investment clubs, and podcasts. He teaches agents, investors, and advisors alike the ins and outs of 1031 exchanges and other tax and investment options.

Dave started his investing career with a fix and flip duplex, then pivoted to single family housing with a buy and hold strategy. After building a rental portfolio in Denver, a corporate move to the Northeast caused him to transition his holdings into a larger renovation/rental project in his new home city and a Florida vacation rental.

When it became clear that his vacation rental clients were enjoying a lot more sunshine than he was, his family made the move south, and he again relocated his investment dollars. His portfolio has since included single and multifamily long-term rentals, as well as hurricane damaged foreclosures, more vacation rentals, and a commercial building. His current investing focus is on land development and student housing.

The best investment decision Dave ever made has been in spending more time with his family. After just six years as an investor, he was able to use a combination of 1031 exchanges and section 121 primary residence exemptions to generate enough tax-free proceeds for the cash purchase of a sailboat. He lived aboard and enjoyed the adventures of coastal sailing with his family for 10 years.

Now he helps other investors pursue their dreams while he works on a land development project and his four sons finish their academic careers.

Dave has appeared on podcasts such as the Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever, Landlording for Life, Commit to Wealth, Peer 2 Peer Investing, The Real Estate Syndication Show, Real Estate Nerds, and Can Real Estate Investors Save the World.

Dave is active on the board of the Colorado Online Virtual Academy, the premier college preparatory online charter school in the state of Colorado. A former college basketball player and beach volleyball rat, he was inducted into the Colorado Christian University Athletic Hall of fame in 2007.

Education
Dave earned a B.A. in English, a B.S. in Accounting, and a master’s in Management from Colorado Christian University.
