The UBG Team
United Brokers Group is a special real estate company that looks to affiliate and work with only the best in the industry…
Full-time agents that are invested in their career and aim to give the client their very best!
David Kowalski: CEO
David Kowalski wants to live in a world filled with innovative and enthusiastic real estate agents, where emails are short, transactions close early and clients love their UBG agent. As CEO, he helps real estate agents grow their business into rewarding careers through collaboration, education and determination.
David pulls from 25 years of technology and financial experience interfacing with sales and marketing teams to help agents incorporate technology and sales systems into their business. Although he thinks software is usually the answer (and codes for fun), he can’t help but admire the smile real estate agents can bring to faces of their clients when they find the perfect home.
When he’s not helping agents use technology, you can find him re-watching any season of Shark Tank, testing Amazon’s same day delivery promise or walking way too far in the desert heat to find his car ( that is almost an obsession).
David grew up in Toronto and has called Gilbert, AZ home for the past 12 years.
