David’s career started over 35 years ago in Israel where he owned a successful insurance brokerage and was President and GM of his favorite professional basketball team. However, David saw bigger opportunities in his future when he, his wife and three children immigrated to Canada in 1999.
In 2000, David joined Torode Real Estate and began his career in Canadian commercial real estate. He was later invited to join a group of senior negotiators who bought Torode real estate brokerage in 2001. In 2003, David assumed the leadership role of President, and in 2004 the brokerage was rebranded under the name Barclay Street Real Estate.
In a few short years, David has made strides in growing Barclay Street locally and internationally. In 2007, David added Property Management to Barclay Street’s portfolio of services and the division has grown dramatically in the last few years with properties throughout Alberta, managing today about 5 million Sq. Ft.
To expand Barclay Street’s national and global reach, David formed a partnership in 2011 with TCN Worldwide, a real estate services organization that serves more than 200 markets globally. As a member of TCN Worldwide, Barclay Street has the ability to service their customers on a local and international level through a network of over 1200 commercial real estate firms. Between 2012 and 2019, David served as a board member with TCN Worldwide, bringing his commercial real estate knowledge to the international stage. After a short break, he re-joined TCN Worldwide as a board member in September 2022.
In April 2013, David received his CCIM - Certified Commercial Investment Member designation.
In June 2014, David launched a new venture, Triumph Real Estate Investment Fund. A private REIT focused on acquiring revenue producing properties in defined markets both in Canada and the U.S.A. David is founder and director and is responsible for all real estate matters of the Fund as well as involved in raising funds for Triumph. In mid 2019, David launched Triumph Real Estate Investment Fund II.
From early 2016 to the end of 2020, David co-chaired the Calgary Economic Development Real Estate Advisory Committee. From March 2017 to March 2019 David hosted a weekly business talk show on voiceamerica.com. Currently, David co-hosts a weekly business talk show with Tara McCool on 770 CHQR Radio. David was featured in "Desire, Discipline & Determination" - a business book published by Lessons from Network.
With family-centric ideals, David ensures Barclay Street employees and clients feel like they are dealing with family, not just coworkers or a commercial real estate broker.
