In today’s episode of Ritter On Real Estate. We Interview Dave Holman. With over a decade of experience, Dave is a triple threat; commercial broker, syndicator/investor and co-owner of Katahdin Property Management.

His first investment took place right out of college when he co-founded a multi-lingual retail chain in Bolivia, The Spitting Llama Bookstore and Outfitter. After earning his MBA and spending 9 years in nonprofit leadership and fundraising, Dave dove into real estate investing to make the world a healthier and happier place.

Dave now co-owns over 130 commercial and residential units in Maine and has a 57 unit new construction project underway. Dave specializes in driving NOI through energy efficiency and creative solutions with refugee and immigrant tenants. Outside of real estate, Dave is a distance athlete and the author of three books: Youth Renewing the Countryside, Coffee Smugglers, and Cyber Fire.
