Luxury Real Estate Specialist, Jeff S. Katz, begins each morning channeling his thoughts at the park with his 14-year-old, tail-chasing dog, Debo. Katz’s love for the art of the sale, a close second to baseball, developed at a young age while selling see’s candy bars door-to-door in the San Fernando Valley.
An only child, the Maccabee Games Gold Medalist (Jewish Olympics) attended a prestigious all boys’ high school prior to moving to San Diego for college to study Entrepreneurship. Jeff is known to work best under pressure and is frequently called the “Consummate Salesman.”
He credits much of his success in his more challenging roles to both the great guidance from mentors and his long days of being repeatedly hung up on while working as a telemarketer early in his career. His extensive background in Sales, Marketing, Social Media & Public Relations made his transition into real estate a seamless one, closing over $60,000,000 in sales in his first four years.
His global Rolodex of affluent clientele consists of Professional Athletes, Celebrities, Business Executives & Government Officials spanning the globe from Los Angeles to Beijing. Jeff, a 3rd generation entrepreneur with a strong focus on social purpose, currently sits on the Board of Directors for a San Diego-based nonprofit, The LightBridge Community Foundation.
Most recently, his platform of "Empowering the Success of Others" earned him 1st prize in Proctor & Gamble's "My Rising Tide" contest. Katz is a straight shooter who is often told that he was a New Yorker in a past life. He will proudly share how he lost to a blind man in golf and of his desire to break a Guinness World Record. He has negotiated deals on 6 of 7 continents but is still looking to close a sale in Antarctica.
