Hi, I’m Dave Nimick.

Everyone has a few key moments in life. For me, two life-changing moments led to my Chicago real estate career.
After I received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California, I moved back home to Northern California.

Although you can’t beat California sunshine, after a few short years I was ready for a new zip code. I began visiting friends across the US in search of a new place to call home.

I fell in love with Chicago the minute I landed here. The people were approachable and the city offered everything from culture to sports and everything in between. I returned home, packed my bags, and moved to Chicago six weeks later.

Upon arriving in Chicago, I got a job at Enterprise Rent-a-Car. During my time with the company, I rose to the position of district manager and gained valuable experience running a multi-million dollar business.

Not long after starting at Enterprise, a friend asked for my input on a used car he was interested in purchasing. So I went along with him to take a look. Before I witnessed dollar bills flying out of his wallet, I stepped in and negotiated a better price.

As my friend drove us home in his new car, I contemplated what I’d helped accomplish. He paid less because I’d negotiated an honest and fair deal. It was gratifying.

Over time (and a few more negotiations I struck for other friends), I realized this native Californian is a practical Midwesterner at heart. Moving to Chicago and realizing my strength as a negotiator were two key moments. In 2001, I made the career switch to real estate.

Years later, I’m still using the art of negotiation to help my clients achieve their key moment in life… owning a home in beloved Chicago.
