First Vice President Investments
Dave Knobler is based out of Houston, Texas and is a partner in The LeClaire Group as well as First Vice President Investments and Director of Marcus & Millichap’s National Self-Storage Group. In the past six years, Dave has closed over $200 million worth of real estate transactions primarily consisting of self-storage properties. Having a passion for brokerage, surrounding himself with fantastic teams like the LeClaire Group and Marcus & Millichap, and implementing a creative marketing approach have been the foundation of Dave’s ability to help his clients achieve their goals. Dave is consistently among the firm’s industry leading NSSG agents nationwide and has received sales recognition awards 4 straight years including the Marcus & Millichap National Achievement Award in 2016. Other awards earned for the Marcus & Millichap Houston Office have included securing the largest Marcus & Millichap Capital Corporation loan referral in 2012, winning the Breakout Award in 2014, and being recognized as “The Best of the Best” in The Houston Business Journal in 2016. Dave has a Bachelor’s of Science in Speech from the University of Texas at Austin. “I feel the most important lesson I learned from my Speech degree was that communication is listener-based so regardless of how articulate your delivery is, if the person/group you are attempting to communicate with doesn’t properly understand your message then you haven’t effectively communicated.” Before immersing himself into the world of commercial real estate brokerage Dave had a lengthy career as an award-winning television sportscaster.
While he no longer reports on sports, Dave is still a huge fan and enjoys competing in all types of sports when time permits. Dave drags his family (willingly) to as many University of Texas football games each year as possible, at least when he and his wife aren’t watching one of their 3 children participate in activities of their own.
