About Hyun-Kun David

David Jo offers comprehensive white-glove concierge services to his clients, where he skillfully assesses their unique needs to find their personal sanctuary/home, or a sensible investment opportunity. He especially enjoys looking for niche properties such as those with green space, historic charm, architectural integrity, and the like throughout NYC.

David grew up in England in the shadow of awe-inspiring architectural masterpieces. He moved to New Jersey for high school, then attended the University of St. Andrew in Scotland, earning a Master of Arts in International Relations, and a graduate degree at Les Roches International School of Hotel Management in the French sector of Switzerland. As a history and architecture aficionado, David additionally minored in art history with a focus on renaissance and medieval art/architecture.

Real estate was a natural progression for him, as he preceded his career as a senior sales manager with a six-plus-year background in corporate and luxury leisure sales in five-star hotels, both in Manhattan and Brooklyn. David cultivated experience in bespoke customer service solutions and consultative sales with building ownership, management companies and a c-suite clientele, and handled account management for all domestic and international Fortune 500 and leisure accounts like Amex Travel and others. David also helped open new hotel locations and hotel-serviced residence developments, maximizing ROI from a real estate investment standpoint by building property-specific sales strategies via bespoke market segmentation.

He leverages his extensive knowledge along with all the cutting-edge resources available to him at Douglas Elliman, to ensure that his buyers, sellers and renters are best-informed to make the right decisions for their needs and lifestyle. David also shares his personal local insights with clients as a fellow New Yorker who has lived in the Theater District, Hell’s Kitchen, Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Financial District, Dumbo, and Brooklyn Heights.

Fluent in English and Korean, David grew up traveling extensively and still loves to do so. He is an avid hiker as well, with the Outer Hebrides in Scotland on the Isle of Skye among his favorite excursions. Gardening is another passion, as is wine and spirits, as he’s a certified level 1 sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers.
