David Schlamm founded City Connections Realty in 1988 in a Greenwich Village basement apartment. The one-man operation matured not only into one of New York City's fastest growing agencies, but also into an industry innovator. In 2004, City Connections pioneered a high-split commission model for experienced, ethical, and entrepreneurial agents,David had finally created the model he wished was available when he started in real estate! The competition thought the idea was crazy. Agents didn't. The City Connections high-split model has since spawned numerous imitators, but the pioneer still does it best. In 2009, City Connections introduced an unparalleled agent support program that gives agents access to one-on-one real estate, business, life, and social media coaching, as well as professional development via the Certified Real Estate Advisor program. David has been a sought after speaker at various REBNY programs and educational classes where he talks mostly about ethics, relationships with landlords and "doing the right thing" . David's next project is launching the charitable arm of City Connections, named after his late best friend, Paul. When not playing captain of the City Connections team, David enjoys boating on the Hudson River, attending rock concerts (Grateful Dead is his favorite), and spending time with his wife Jill and daughters Emma and Maggie.

“David has made a long-term commitment to the residential real estate business. It is clear that his relationship with me means far more than one or two commissions. In this sense, he is a consummate professional who takes pride in his work and has a great deal of integrity. I only wish there were more like him in real estate.”
