David joined Compass in February 2015 after 8 years in commercial real estate. Recruited by both big and small commercial firms, David saw the need to create a new fledgling commercial department at Compass. Following his entrepreneurial spirit, David decided to join Compass start a new commercial business from scratch and grow it his own way. After only 8 months, business had grown to the point where he had to bring on Jake Velazquez and formed the Graff Team.
The Graff Team represents both landlords and tenants for retail office and investment transactions. From high-end Madison Avenue to the Financial District the Graff team has the experience and know how to service all your commercial needs. Closing out 2015 with 10 closed deals in the final 8 weeks, the Graff team is looking forward to an even better 2016 as David and Jake continue to take the business to new heights.
David’s post MBA career started in Boston working as a Marketing Manager for Abbott Laboratories. In 2002 he moved back to New York City working as a Marketing Manager for BMG Music, Consumer Marketing Manager for Rodale Publishing, and as a Consultant for The Direct Marketing Agency.
Compass Commercial is a 24/7 365 business, but when David is not working he can be found walking around with his yellow lab Maggie through the village or looking for any opportunity to take his car out and hit the open road. With his sister and her family in Arlington, Virginia, parents and grandmother in New Jersey, David is lucky to be able to spend a lot of time with family.
