Jeff S. Katz
Entrepreneur | Philanthropist | Dreamer
Luxury Real Estate Specialist, Philanthropist and Dreamer, Jeff S. Katz, begins each morning channeling his thoughts at the park with his 14 year old, tail-chasing dog, Debo. Katz’ 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 an all boys’ Catholic high school prior to moving to San Diego for college to study Entrepreneurship. Jeff works 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. Since then he has gone
on to thrive in real estate and various entrepreneurial ventures and has contributed to over $30 million in sales spanning six of the seven continents. A real estate agent, business development consultant, and Co-Founder of Conscious Acts of Kindness, is a 3rd generation entrepreneur with a strong focus on social purpose. 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, his desire to break a Guinness World Record and that he is still looking to close a sale in Antarctica. Have any hot leads?

A FEW FAVORITE QUOTES WHICH HAVE RESONATED WITH JEFF DURING
PIVOTAL POINTS THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER.
"All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." - T.E. Lawrence
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind." - Dr. Suess
"Art is a tool of power – to impress or intimidate. Imagine an office with a vast & vibrant image hanging on the wall directly behind a desk; Anyone who sits and meets with the person seated behind the desk must contend not only with that person, but also with the art." - Unknown
"I’m so optimistic I’d go after Moby Dick in a row boat & take the tartar sauce with me." -Zig Ziglar
"Go out on a limb, that's where the fruit is." -Mark Twain
