2020 HW Woman of Influence: Dava Davin

Portside Real Estate Group, Founder and President

Dava Davin

With a passion to make a difference, a handful of agents and a small office in Falmouth, Maine, Dava Davin founded Portside Real Estate in 2012.

Now, eight years later, Davin’s dream is the fifth-largest real estate company in the state. With five unique offices, Davin owns and operates the largest solely female-owned real estate company in Maine. That force of female empowerment revealed itself again when Davin was named honorary chair of the non-profit Girls on the Run. Davin built her business by the law of attraction – believing that what you focus on expands. In an industry where turnover of agents is 20% to 25% annually, turnover at her company averages just about 4%. Davin’s reach and influence also expands into the community. In 2018 her motto “make doing good easy” transcended itself when she established the Portside Foundation. Together, Davin and her foundation team host Portside Gives Back events that directly benefit local non-profits, while raising more than $60,000 annually. The foundation also contributes a portion of every commission earned to their non-profit partners. Goal setting and being better today than she was yesterday carries over outside the office in her passion for endurance sports. Davin completed several marathons including qualifying for the Boston Marathon multiple times and is a four-time IRONMAN finisher.
