This includes being showcased in The Real Deal real estate news magazine where the innovation behind BLU Realty Group was highlighted and David along with his four cofounders were praised for their unconventional commission split model, the company’s cultivated professional image, and their rapid climb to the top of the luxury real estate market.  Not only has David been hailed as being one of the top five real estate entrepreneurs under 40, but he has also seen a great deal of praise from his clients who have benefited from David’s innate pragmatism and business savvy and who have made outstanding real estate purchases under his guidance and advice.
