Dave Fratello

Broker Associate

Dave Fratello is a top-producing SoCal real estate broker with over $295 million in sales under his belt. Since joining the industry full-time in 2012, Dave has built a reputation of advocacy for his clients, bringing the utmost professionalism and informed preparation to every transaction.

Dave first came into real estate as a critic, disillusioned with the way he had seen business conducted and frustrated at the lack of quality data for consumers. As a self-professed “data nerd,” Dave dedicated himself to helping to create a “smarter market” by consistently publishing data, analysis, and inside information for all to access. Dave’s long-running Manhattan Beach Confidential site made him a popular resource for buyers and sellers in the Manhattan Beach market.

Dubbed a “buyer specialist,” Dave enjoys the long- or short-term process of helping buyers to narrow down their wants and needs and find their perfect match. He feels that buyers deserve the help and insight possible in a true relationship with a local broker.

On the listing side, Dave brings experience from a background in advertising and years’ worth of online success. He is known for high-quality and innovative presentation, alongside data-informed advice on how to time and price a property for maximum appeal and profit. He has a history of representing some of the finest properties in the South Bay.

Dave’s goal has always been to do things differently and better than his competition. His past and present clients have consistently described him as resourceful, patient, analytical, positive, and even fun.

A Southern California native, Dave has lived in Manhattan Beach more than 20 years, and is now well-known as a local expert. He founded Edge Real Estate Agency in 2019, as the first Southern California partner with the Side brokerage network. With his wife, Jeanne, Dave also publishes, a website that features insider’s news and information on the Manhattan Beach community and everything it has to offer.

When not working, Dave enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, running, fishing, swimming, hiking, going to the beach and maintaining a saltwater reef aquarium. Contact Dave for a detailed buyer or seller consultation today!
