Broker Sales Associate
"My goal is to always be attentive to my clients’ needs, precisely focusing on the details so they can focus on their dreams."
Marty Katz’s entrepreneurial spirit and business savvy makes him a strategic consultant and sharp negotiator, helping buyers and sellers accomplish their goals with ease and agility. Marty earned his reputation for integrity and client focus not only through his years of experience as a realtor, but also as the owner and operator of a large-scale distribution business throughout Central Florida.
Marty began his real estate career 10 years ago when he became a Licensed Business Broker, helping clients buy and sell businesses and develop business valuations. Today, he currently focuses on residential real estate, sharing his professional insight into properties and pending deals to help his clients make informed and well-considered choices. Yet, Marty’s true strength lies in his ability to deliver honest and attentive customer service.
Prior to real estate, Marty owned and operated a gourmet specialty tea distribution business that reached a customer base of over 500 Central Florida businesses, ranging from theme parks to neighborhood restaurants. The skills and knowledge he learned by overseeing and growing the business are invaluable assets to his career today. Marty has deep ties within the community, forming and maintaining an extensive network of relationships that enable him to provide his clients with the best tools and resources. Analytical by nature, Marty studies the market and conducts thorough research for each transaction. He works hard to connect with people, listening to their needs and being a straightforward, responsive communicator. If he does not know the answer to something, he consults his colleagues and gets the answer. His greatest satisfaction is the happiness of his clients when they accomplish their real estate goals, and he is willing go the extra mile to ensure that their total satisfaction is at the finish line.
It is this additional drive that sets Marty apart in both his professional and personal life. An avid runner, Marty has completed numerous marathons, including the Boston Marathon and Los Angeles Marathon. He is also a classically-trained musician, having studied at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music and going on to play tuba professionally in New York City. For the past 20 years, Marty has lived in Maitland with his wife Robin of 35 years, and together they raised two sons, who are both biomedical engineers residing in Southern California. He is active in the community, routinely volunteering with the American Red Cross, Adult Literacy League, and the Jewish Federation Food Bank. When he is not engaged in real estate, Marty indulges his passion for music, listening to vinyl recordings on his turntable, reads, runs and cycles through the area’s scenic neighborhoods and trails, and cooks with his wife.
