For over 25 years, President and CEO Josh Guberman has been engaged in high-end construction and real estate development in addition to founding and investing in a variety of renowned businesses and endeavors.
Under his real estate development company, Core Development Group (www.corenewyork.com) Guberman has crafted over twenty boutique buildings, exclusive residential projects and multiple commercial and hospitality ventures always accepting nothing less than the highest level of service and quality.
Each Guberman project is built one at a time, combining all the elements of convenience, useful amenities and cutting edge technology that today’s affluent and discriminating buyer is looking for. After achieving success for his work in New York City under the Core Development Group, Guberman decided it was time to try a new real estate venture, building premier properties in an area that for years he considered home; The Hamptons.
In 2011, The Guberman Group was launched, encompassing the estate projects in the Hamptons in addition to the companies Guberman already held interest in, including the acclaimed Crush Wine Co, founded and owned by Guberman and his close friends Drew Nieporent of Myriad Restaurant Group and wine expert, Bobby Schagrin.
In less than two years, The Guberman Group has already received positive recognition as one of many prestigious builders in the Hamptons. The Guberman Group has increased its affiliation base with a number of restaurants, galleries, artists, jewelry businesses, fashion companies, design firms and more, all bringing different components to the Group, and always offering their clients something new, exciting but most importantly, the highest quality product.
The Guberman Group understands the importance of creating lasting impressions for their buyers, so whether it is helping them complete their wine cellars with the Crush wine team, staging their homes with the finest art and furniture from their affiliated brands, or sending them to one of their four co- owned New York City restaurants, the experience is memorable, and hopefully, the relationship long lasting. Please see our affiliated brands link for a complete list of the Groups “go to” companies.
Josh Guberman graduated summa cum laude from Hunter College in New York City with a double major in Political Science and Media communications. To pay his way through school, he was an ice cream store manager and yellow cab driver. After graduation, he was on a focused mission to create solid businesses that provided jobs and opportunities to its employees while continuing to give value to its clients.
From his life experiences growing up on what was back then the economically challenged and crime ridden Upper West Side, Guberman grew to understand the importance of giving back to the community and supporting important causes.
Through his charitable division, Guberman Group Gives, opportunities are created to provide funds, resources and support for important local and international causes and charities. Please view the Giving link for more on Guberman Group Gives.
