David Adam Kurz: Biography
In January 2005, David Adam Kurz arrived to the city of Miami with two things: dedication and innovation. Originally from the Bronx and an active Marine since 1994, he had just finished his final tour, and was ready to embark on a journey he claims is in its own way tougher than war—the journey of entrepreneurship.
But Kurz wasted no time. In the years to follow, he was busy operating one of the most highly respected real estate teams at Douglas Elliman, the fourth largest real estate brokerage in the United States. It was there that Kurz realized real estate is more than just a job servicing others—it’s about building professional relationships that last a lifetime.
In the summer of 2016, Kurz opened the doors to Kurz Real Estate, Corp and grew like no one had ever seen before reaching 80+ agents in his first year! During the first year Kurz was featured in several publications for the fast growth and awarded for success. The recipient of the Entrepreneurial Start Up of the Year for Miami, Most Innovative Marketing Award, Top 100 Most Influential Agents and finally a nomination for Most Innovative Brokerage in the country by Inman.
Kurz doesn’t just believe client connections are important in the industry: on a path and mission to better the incoming real estate generation of Miami, Kurz’s drive, innovative thinking and belief in collaborating with others led him to start his own real estate brokerage, Kurz Real Estate Corp, where he is President and a noncompeting broker and mentor to young professionals and new entrants of all ages to the industry.
David Adam Kurz works with all residential and commercial property types across South Florida. Buyers, sellers and investors have all found success working alongside David and his brokerage. His extensive network of clients and colleagues spans the globe. With more than 1,000 homes sold, he stands out as a prominent Florida real estate broker and a trusted source. Now David is a non-competing Broker for his brokerage, Kurz Real Estate, Corp and focuses on the growth of the company and its brand. David now runs the brokerage, coaches his real estate students, manages The Kurz Team and handles several speaking events and opportunities nationally.
Kurz’s efforts in real estate expand beyond his experience in the office. He is also a thought leader and advisor as the host of his own Real Estate Show. You can listen to him and his teams discuss the market and industry topics every Thursday at 4 p.m. on the Real Talk Show, aired on FaceBook Live @KurzRealEstate. But he continues to add even more to his marketing repertoire, acting as publisher for the company’s own Kurz Real Estate marketing management system which is live and digital online, and even co-authored a book laying out the plan that he himself follows for building a successful business called The Blueprint: Strategies for Building a Successful Real Estate Business, which was published in November 2016. With the second book, TAKE ACTION released in August of 2017. He is most proud of Take Action because he believes it is helping agents and business owners develop the attitude needed to be in business! Now David has his eyes and efforts set on his third book which he claims can change the mentality of a generation accustomed to failure. You will have to wait for that one but it is expected to be released in late 2019 or early 2020.
Aside from his work in the field, David Kurz is also active in giving back to his community. He served as President for the Miami Chapter of the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP) for 2 years, a national non-profit with focus on veteran homeownership and veteran financial literacy. As a veteran himself, he feels obligated to give back to his peers. With his wife Jennyffer, they launched the Kurz Kares Foundation. The Kurz Kares Foundation is a charity designed to slow gentrification by enhancing communities for working families.
When Kurz is not working, he enjoys boating, riding his Harley Davidson, trying out new restaurants, and simply learning more about Miami and the surrounding markets. He and his amazing fiancé love to travel and focus on making that a part of their lives. He has 4 beautiful daughters and 2 crazy pups! He is fluent in both Spanish and English.
