MEET JEFF S. KATZ
an Award Winning Luxury Real Estate Specialist, and proud member of the compass / sports & entertainment division, Jeff S. Katz, begins most morning’s channeling his thoughts at the park with his Fiancee, Lauren, and their 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 (los angeles). 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 at Cal State San Marcos. he never looked back…
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, contributing to over $60 million in sales in the past four years. His global rolodex of affluent clientele consists of Professional Athletes, Celebrities, Politicians, C-Level Executives & Government Officials spanning the globe from Los Angeles to Beijing.
A 3rd generation entrepreneur with a strong focus on social purpose, Jeff currently sits on the Board of Directors for a San Diego based non profit, The LightBridge Community Foundation. 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… have any hot leads?
