David Effler has gathered the personal knowledge of the Greater Toledo Area’s Real Estate market by serving the vicinity for over forty years. More importantly, he had the privilege and pleasure of learning his trade from one of the first and best real estate practitioners in northwest Ohio, his father Paul L. Effler, a lifelong Real Estate Broker. That relationship has established a legacy of expert mentoring within Effler/Schmitt, David by Paul and, most recently, David’s son Daniel by David.
David Effler, Sr.
David J. Effler, Sr. graduated from St. John’s Jesuit High School in 1970 and received his B.S. Degree, with an emphasis in marketing, from the University of Toledo in 1975. A fourth generation real estate broker, David entered the real estate industry in 1974 as a licensed agent and achieved the status of Real Estate Broker in 1980. A firm believer in higher education (having fully funded seven children through their university educations), David has continued to grow his professional knowledge base by completing advanced courses in Real Estate, Insurance, Marketing, and Appraisal. Also firmly rooted in the local business community, David is a past board member of the Better Business Bureau, a member of the Toledo Chamber of Commerce and a member and past board member of the Toledo Rotary since 1979.
What does this all mean? It means that with David Effler, you benefit from the life, education, and business experience of a consummate real estate professional with deep ties to the local community and economy. When he’s not serving his clients real estate and insurance needs, David can be found on the golf course, squash courts, or celebrating life with his wife, children, grandchildren and friends. Trustworthy, committed, professional-that is the David Effler promise, and the Effler/Schmitt advantage.
Daniel Effler, the newest member of the Effler/Schmitt real estate team, is the proud fifth-generation carrier of the family tradition.
Dan graduated locally from Ottawa Hills High School in 2003 and from Bowling Green State University in 2007, with a combined focus in Business and Finance. After going to work immediately as an agent for ESC, it took him only a few years to achieve the status of Real Estate Broker. He has benefited immensely from a life-long mentor-ship with his father, David, and is now, himself, a Multi-Million Dollar Producer that can provide you with the service and confidence of a seasoned veteran.
As Dan puts it, “Real estate is a passion. In addition to representing my clients as best as I possibly can, I love the art of the business and sorting through the complexities of each unique transaction.” Dan is an avid sports enthusiast, enjoying hiking, cycling, squash, and hunting. He and his wife currently reside in Ottawa Hills, where he can remain active in local events and can keep an eye on the local housing market.

She pursued a career in the Insurance Industry and became an Area Branch Manager for a large Commercial Insurance Company in Lansing Michigan.
