My name is Dave Blake and I’m a Financial Advisor with Raymond James in Birmingham, Michigan. I specialize in working with owners of family owned businesses to organize their financial lives, navigate critical financial decisions and help build wealth through financial planning.
I studied at Albion College earning a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Management. In addition to financial planning my professional experience is in both business and hospitality, including owning and managing commercial real estate and managing a family business, Blake’s Orchard & Blake’s Hard Cider Co.
My past experiences have given me an appreciation for the unique challenges of a family owned business, the hard work and level of risk and dedication it takes to be successful. I’m passionate about helping evaluate different strategic business opportunities; planning for short and long term financial goals, both personally and in a business.
I was born and raised in Detroit and currently live in Ferndale with my wife Rebecca, son Ender and my dog Seger. I'm an active member of Woodside Bible Church, Detroit Economic Club and the National Ski Patrol. I enjoy boating, racket sports, skiing, golf and travel.
