Nikita Gylander, Broker | Owner


I took an early interest in real estate and started working for a condominium developer in sales & marketing in 2005.

John Taggart, Realtor | Mortgage Broker

In 2011 I started my career in real estate as a Mortgage Broker with Dominion Lending. Beginning in 2014 I expanded my services to my clients by becoming a Realtor.
The combination of Realtor and Mortgage Broker has provided me with ample opportunity to finesse my tools and build opportunities to continuously help my clients save money. By being a one-stop shop I can streamline the process of buying and selling a house and ultimately help my clients achieve a new level of comfort!

Albert Kozel,


Born and Raised in Edmonton and from a large family of 10. I recall being interested in property and sales from a young age, but somehow never chased that passion till 2004. I am considered to be an outgoing person and am told quite often by my clients that being a Realtor is my true calling. I love meeting clients and helping make their home ownership dreams come to fruition. Many clients have used my services for multiple sales and purchases and have then referred me to friends and family.

David F. Brown

President and founder of Core Real Estate Group. He grew up in Edmonton with a thirst for entrepreneurism from an early age; starting a clothing line and organizing entertainment events early in his life while attending the U of A. After graduating and spending 5-years on the leadership team of a large hospitality company, he set his sights on achieving a long-standing personal goal (as well as the sunny beaches of California) and left for a new adventure.


Spending the next 5-years in Southern California and Hong Kong, he earned an MBA in finance and entrepreneurship and then worked for a business valuation/MandA firm. Studying strategic thinking and financial modeling provided a great base of knowledge for future opportunities, and he was eager to return to Edmonton to put these new skills to use. The next 2-years were spent working through the intricacies of commercial insurance before he felt the entrepreneurial draw calling him again, and started Core Real Estate Group – a local real estate services firm. Core has grown significantly since inception and continues to support staff in personal and professional growth while providing clients with the knowledge and guidance necessary to ensure operational and financial efficiency. As President of Core, David’s responsibilities include oversight of corporate direction and strategy with a focus on leadership, personnel development, and customer satisfaction.


In addition to teaching classes with Junior Achievement, David is a member of the Human Resources and Governance sub-committee with JA; he also participates as an active member of the Finance and Taxation Committee for the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce.


The perfect day for Dave starts with something active (his favourite sports are mountain biking, snowboarding, and rock climbing), finding some sort of adventure around Edmonton, and then enjoying great food and drinks with friends and family. He’s a country music enthusiast and is currently learning to play the piano.
