Meet the Team
The Dave Roach Team
Dave and his team are a leading real estate organization in the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge area. Their experience, marketing expertise, and negotiation skills are highly respected by hundreds of past clients in Canada’s Technology Triangle.
Dave Roach, Broker
Dave pursued his passion for sales and marketing by continuing his education at Queen’s University. In the course of his career, Dave gained extensive sales and marketing experience at the senior management level in both private and public companies. In 2003, Dave retired as Vice President, Sales & Marketing from the high-tech field.
To prepare for the next phase in his career, Dave completed all certification levels for registration as a Realtor (Residential, Commercial, Appraisal & Real Estate Law). Dave quickly established himself as one of the top Realtors in Waterloo, and Team Leader of the Dave Roach Team.
While working with RE/MAX Twin City Realty, he was a member of RE/MAX Platinum Club for sales achievement from 2006-2011. The prestigious Platinum Club award is granted to only 5% of Realtors worldwide. In 2008, Dave was inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of fame. At this time, he became a licensed Real Estate Broker and a licensed Mortgage Broker.
In 2011, Dave decided to move his team to Keller Williams Golden Realty Triangle. The Keller Williams values “God, Family, then Business”, and their strong focus on teams appealed to Dave.
Dave takes great pride in his family, and enjoys spending time with them. During his 46 year marriage, Dave and his wife, Judy, have raised three children and are now the proud grandparents of 8 grandchildren. With their parent’s strong relationship as their model, Dave’s kids are in turn raising their children with strong values and a sense of community. Dave and his wife are passionate volunteers at Correctional Services of Canada, where they support numerous chaplaincy functions at a local prison. Dave also serves on the board of directors of 4 charitable organizations. When time allows, Dave enjoys a round of golf, and travelling with Judy and the family.
Dave’s approach to real is estate is simply making people happy buying and selling their real estate in the Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding areas. With this in mind, the Dave Roach Team’s approach provides high levels of customer service and satisfaction.

Katherine is very efficient and detail oriented, but her greatest attribute is her friendly attitude. Katherine genuinely cares about people and does her utmost to serve clients of the Dave Roach Team.
