David was born and raised in Central New York. He graduated from Mynderse Academy High School in Seneca Falls, and studied business at Cayuga Community College and SUNY Potsdam. Even from a young age, David has had a love for sales. His entrepreneurial skills started at age 9 when he would “borrow” vegetables from his parent’s garden and sell them at “Dave’s Veggies” from his front lawn. This was only the beginning of what would become a long and lucrative sales career... however, his passion for selling vegetables was short-lived!
In 2002, while attending college, David got his Real Estate Salesperson license and began selling real estate. Quickly after joining the field he became known as one of the youngest and most successful agents in the region, representing some of the largest firms in New York State. Throughout his many years in the field, David has learned the residential market as well as the complex commercial sales and leasing side of the real estate business. David also has a knowledgeable background in property management which has allowed him to market his company statewide. His extensive knowledge of all facets of the real estate world provides clients with an in-depth background of residential and commercial values of buildings and land throughout New York State. David’s knowledge and experience are a treasure-trove for all who do business with him.
In 2012, David announced the opening of The Young Agency – a full service real estate and management firm that provides exemplary levels of service and affordable commissions. The first branch office, located in the Buffalo suburb of Amherst, was opened soon after. In Spring of 2016, David opened a third location in Canandaigua and office number four quickly followed in Geneva. Fall of 2016 brought even more change as the company's Corporate Headquarters were relocated from Waterloo to a beautiful new building purchased by David in Downtown Seneca Falls.
David is an avid real estate investor who has built his personal portfolio to include a substantial amount of commercial and residential real estate investments. He has personally guided many amateur investors into successful ownership of investment properties.
In late 2017, David's Investment Company acquired a Restaurant/Bar to add to their portfolio. The Canal Side Tavern (formerly The Sequestered Tavern) is located in the heart of Downtown Seneca Falls and serves as the ONLY local food venue located directly on the beautiful Seneca Canal. The beautifully remodeled space serves as a great gathering spot for locals and tourists, offering a large selection of local beers/wines along with the best wings in NY (but he might be a little biased - Definitely worth a try though!).
When he is not hard at work, he enjoys staying active by working out, boating, golfing and traveling. You can find a world map in his office highlighting the many places he has traveled around the world. David is also committed to his local community. He serves/has served on several local boards of directors including the Auburn BID (Business Improvement District), IGNITE for Young Professionals,Seneca County House of Concern and the Cayuga County Association of REALTORS®. David will never forget where he started and the struggle of growing a business from the ground up. He gives back to the community and donates to many charities. He is a proud sponsor with his wife, Kristin of two children (Brenda from the Philippines and Farlon from Indonesia). They have become close pen-pals with the children and enjoy knowing that their donations have helped them live a more fulfilling and healthy life. David and Kristin are also active members of their local church as well.
Being a devoted, honest and dependable Broker while delivering the highest level of service has propelled David to where he is today. His genuine love for the real estate business sets him apart in the field. He looks forward to helping you reach your ultimate real estate goal whether its buying, selling, renting or property management. Either way you will be happy to say that David Young and The Young Agency are your REALTORS® for life!!!
