My real estate career began by working for Ray Weber – another Eliason Realty broker, while I was attending the University of Wisconsin – Madison in the 1990s. I double majored in Finance and Real Estate for my bachelor's degree and I earned a master's degree in finance (MBA) as well. I was six credits short of a second master's degree in real estate, but I just couldn't stay in school another day. Madison was a great school for real estate and was Ranked #1 in the United States by U.S. News & World Report (2013)
My brother and I began buying local properties with a few partners and eventually found ourselves running Eliason 1031 Properties. Our company was the second fastest growing company in the United States (Inc Magazine 2008). We purchased and sold nearly half a billion dollars worth of investment real estate throughout the United States. Our revenue in 2007 was $205 million and we had investors in 36 states. In 2014, my brother and I were operating an insurance agency in Wausau, WI with another partner. We served thousands of customers throughout Wisconsin. Midwestern Risk Advisors was sold in the spring of 2018 to Spectrum Insurance Group.
Vilas County has been home for my entire life. I married a "local" girl after college and along with our two kids, we can't imagine living anywhere else but the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

“The day I met with Dave Eliason, I felt he was much more enthusiastic, much more excited about taking the property. He seemed much more forthcoming and he just struck me as much more open and honest."
"David and his team were amazing. His knowledge and accessibility were top notch which made the whole process very easy even when buying a home from 300 miles away. Best in class. David and his team were a pleasure to work with and will recommend them to anyone looking buy/sell a home in this area."
"David showed enthusiasm and a "can do attitude." The whole experience was great, from the first time I contacted David thru the closing."
We'll get in touch with you soon.
