Read about Realty ONE Group In The News

As a part of my series about the ‘Five Things You Need To Know To Succeed In The Real Estate Industry’, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kuba Jewgieniew.

Disruption and change serve as catalysts for Kuba Jewgieniew, propelling him to constantly seek innovative ways to improve and benefit the greater community. Raised by hardworking Polish immigrants, Kuba’s relentless pursuit of his passions led him through various successful ventures, culminating in the founding of Realty ONE Group in 2005, which prioritizes real estate professionals and operates on a 100%-commission model. Today, Realty ONE Group stands as one of the fastest-growing franchises globally, with Kuba being recognized as one of the industry’s most influential figures, continually pushing boundaries and fostering innovation.

Thank you so much for doing this with us! Can you tell us the “backstory” about what brought you to the Real Estate industry?

Before joining the real estate industry, I was a stock trader and financial manager, building computers and software systems as a hobby on the side. ONE day, I overheard a conversation between a couple of real estate professionals, and I was fascinated by the idea, ready for a new challenge. I became licensed in 2004, and in my first year as a REALTOR®, I closed 111 transactions. It was a lot of hard work and grit, but I loved it. During that year, I also realized I split a significant portion of my hard-earned income with a Broker I rarely saw and who offered little support. So I left and created my own 100%-commission company, which is now the most rapidly growing real estate brand on the planet. I’m very proud of Realty ONE Group, but even more so, the large network of people who pour their passion into it every day so that we can share the brand with the world.

Can you share with our readers the most interesting or amusing story that occurred to you in your career so far? Can you share the lesson or takeaway you took out of that story?

For one decade beginning in 2005, we experienced significant success as we opened Realty ONE Group locations throughout Arizona and Nevada. We believed we had sufficiently tested the model, and real estate professionals were flocking to our locations, excited about the uniqueness of our offering. In 2015, we decided to begin franchising and ONE woman changed the trajectory of our brand. Barbara Baker was the first brave soul to take a chance on us and she bought the first franchise. While she recently passed away, her vibrant soul and love for her agents live on in her office in Temecula, CA. Barbara proved once again, the Power of ONE.

Do you have a favorite “life lesson quote”? Can you share a story or example of how that was relevant to you in your life?

A few years ago, we created the ONE Manifesto that captures our beliefs, and hope for ourselves and others.

You have ONE life to live. ONE chance to make it meaningful. ONE opportunity to live with no regrets. Take risks, be bold, seize the day, and lead with respect. Your circumstances will change, people will change, you will change. Be open to it, embrace it, live it. EveryONE matters and everyONE has a voice.

These are words to live by; if you start each day with gratitude and a positive mindset, you cannot and will not fail.

Are you working on any exciting new projects now? How do you think that will help people?

I just launched the digital edition of my first book, The Power of ONE,” and the print edition will be available in the fall before the holidays. This book delivers powerful lessons on entrepreneurship, leadership, building a legacy, and having a purpose, but more importantly, it outlines how together we can all achieve more. That’s truly the Power of ONE and it’s fueled the growth of Realty ONE Group around the world. We believe everyONE matters and everyONE has a voice, and we live it every day.
