"Focused on people, not just places," is more than just a tagline to me. It's the way I've built my business since 2009, one very personal transaction at a time. I vow to treat each and every client with the same level of respect, that being the level of respect I would expect to be shown in the same situation. Whether you are buying or selling, regardless of location or price range, you will get 100% effort and accountability from me at all times.
I pride myself on doing the right thing, every time, for every client. My strengths include: market analysis (determining the correct listing and buying price points), negotiating (getting every dollar for my clients on both sides of the deal), marketing (I always use a professional photographer and even a stager when necessary). In addition to my real estate skills, I also have an extensive background in home lending. I excel at managing each transaction from beginning to end. My clients are never passed to an assistant, and my service continues well after closing. I have always worked strictly off repeat business and referrals, so my performance is my advertisement!
I have lived in the Indianapolis area since 1997 and have been married to my wife, Jennifer, since 2008. We are incredibly involved in animal rescue and are lovers of live music.

Dave took the time to listen to our wants and needs for our future home. His knowledge, patience, availability, and tremendous attention to detail gave us comfort throughout the home buying experience. Dave helped us find our dream home where we will raise our family, and we are so thankful for the incredible experience he provided for us.
Working with Dave Johnson simplified the entire home buying/building process and made it fun! He was involved every step of the way and always kept me up to date. Buying/building a home is a HUGE undertaking and I was so happy that Dave was there to guide me through it!
Dave Johnson is the best realtor that Mark and myself have ever had in our many years of using realtor services. Dave has always gone out of his way to make sure that our needs have been met and exceeded both in buying and selling homes for us. Most realtors that we had dealt with before made it pretty obvious that they were merely there to sell a house and make their commission. Not so with Dave! He has helped us to rearrange furniture, to make the house more staged to potential buyers liking, he has even cleaned up for a showing when we were on vacation. There is nothing that is within his power that Dave won’t do to make your buying or selling experience the best experience you will ever have. Dave has helped us to sell 2 homes and to purchase 1 home and would have helped with the last purchase we made if it were in his state. There is no one that we would trust more than Dave to make sure our needs were met in the real estate market.
Scary, confusion, daunting, stressful..these are some the words that come to mind associated with shopping for and buying a home, especially for a first-timer. My wife and I were in the market in 2011 and we were lucky enough to run into Dave at an open-house in Castleton. From the beginning, Dave's disposition, friendliness and humor made the experience enjoyable. He's honest, thoughtful and genuinely wants the best for his customers. He even knows our son's favorite superhero! We would work with Dave again or recommend him to anyone in the market..the experience will be 1st class...
Dave was instrumental in getting my house in Castleton sold which allowed me to move to Butler-Tarkington. The market was pretty saturated in Castleton so great pictures, marketing and a realistic price was essential. Dave made sure all that was in place and I was very pleased with the sales price. Butler-Tarkington on the other hand, is was not an inventory rich market and I had very specific criteria - of course! When we finally found the "diamond in the rough" house I wanted to buy the transaction was anything but smooth! There were challenges with every party to the sale (except Dave). He helped me navigate through one issue after another always remaining professional, positive, yet firm with the sellers to protect my interests. In the end I purchased a wonderful house in a fantastic area. Thanks to his expert help in price negotiations (both on my home I sold and the one I bought) I had money to turn my house into the diamond I knew it could be!
Selling your first home and buying in a competitive market is a very stressful and emotional experience. However with Dave's help I was also able to enjoy the excitement and stay positively focused on the goal. I have been in my Butler-Tarkington home for more than two years and I still recommend Dave to everyone I know.
Dave made both the home selling and buying experience a seamless process. He was available to answer questions, offer his expertise, and was thoughtful in ensuring that our best interests remained the primary goal. Dave's commitment to his clients surpasses expectations. He was involved throughout the entire process which gave us the peace of mind knowing he was there to ensure nothing was overlooked. His dedication to his clients truly goes above and beyond!
Dave was very involved in all aspects of my home buying experience. He covered all the bases and even interacted directly with my lending institution countless times through the negotiation and closing processes. He always had my my best interests in mind.
Dave Johnson helped us sell our home and buy a new one. He listened carefully to what we needed (both in the selling and buying) and was incredibly helpful!
He not only sold our home for more then we thought possible but also recommended what we should do before listing it. He provided professional staging and photography for the listing which definitely helped our home sell quickly!
He is very customer focused and knowledgeable. He showed us many homes and gave his honest opinion when we would ask! He helped us buy a home that was out of our price range by negotiating us a deal we could afford!
Dave was always fast to respond to any questions we had. He took great care in all the paperwork and negotiations with buying and selling! Dave was a great advocate for us. We really appreciated how smooth he made the whole process, we even had fun through it! We look forward to using Dave again and highly recommend him!
We can't think of a better Realtor than Dave. His knowledge, enthusiasm, and assistance in both the buying and selling ends of the process was second to none. He made a really stressful situation virtually stress free. We'll definitely use him again in the future.
Dave was excellent when helping us buy our first home. He was incredibly knowledgable, friendly and really listened and understood our wants and needs!
Dave knows his stuff. He helped us sell our home and land our forever home in 3 months! Dave was flexible and accommodating with our busy schedules.He is an excellent communicator, really listening to our needs/requests and maintaining a high level of contact (email, phone, face to face) to move at the pace we needed.Dave gets an A+ from these happy home owners!
Can we say say we love Dave?! He is a friend before anything else and as a dog lover he has spent quality time with our very timid mastiff. This, however, is a story about our journey finding a home, our home. Dave first took us to dinner to find out what we wanted and where we wanted to be. Because of our work schedules, he met us on Saturday mornings to show us homes; and we drove all over Indy! Then, one day he showed us the house we would buy and call our own! Dave was super relaxed during this process and open to just driving around and looking at different homes, and that was comforting for Sean and I; as we were first time home buyers. We didn't have Thane, our gentle giant, when we bought the house; but he loves the huge fenced yard! We have enjoyed many parties with friends on our back patio with food on the grill and brews all around. So Dave, when we move again (no time soon); we'll call ya!! Thank you for everything!
“My wife and I were in the Real Estate market last Fall. We were in a pinch because we were renting a house that our landlord decided to put up for sale. The house sold after only being on the market for two weeks. After that experience we were ready to purchase a home of our own in Plainfield, Indiana. We only had about 40 days to buy a house to our liking. We chose Dave Johnson as our realtor and he was a huge asset to finding our first “official” home as a married couple. Dave has a very knowledgeable financial background. He was able to answer any and all of our questions we had about financing our home in addition to our numerous questions about real estate. Our Mortgage Loan Originator stated that Dave was the most “Organized” realtor that she had ever worked with in the purchasing of a new home. Dave definitely puts his clients first and was readily available to meet with us when we wanted to see homes that were available for purchase in Plainfield. We would highly recommend Mr. Dave Johnson as your realtor if you are thinking about exploring the real estate market.”
