About Us

The members of the Katzen Team are not simply brokering transactions, but serving as advisers forone of the largest asset classes in the world. Given real estate often is the single largest exposure in our clients' asset portfolios, and where they raise their families, we understand that real estate dealings are extremely personal and often emotional. Our goal is to bring an expertise, diligence and sensitivity that is commensurate with the importance ofreal estate to our clients, eliminating the stress and unknown in order to elevate the experience of property acquisition. 

Led by Frances Katzen, the Katzen Team has made Douglas Elliman'sprestigious "Top 10 List" of most productive agents in New YorkCity for almost a decade running. The team has successfully closed over $2.5 billion intotal sales and has consistently exceeded $250 million in annual sales volume. Negotiating the best price and finding properties that perfectly meet the needs of our clients has been the staple of our success. However, Frances also has the highest commitment to openness,integrity, and honesty, which is shared by every member of her Team. It is not enough to simply produce at a high level; every broker on the Katzen Team must be committed to the highest level of professionalism and ethical standards. 


Every member of the Katzen Team has a sharpand detailed memory for real estate trends,building andneighborhoodhistories, sales comparable, and pricing data. While we understand that every property is different and must be approached as such,a deep understanding of the market from both a current and historical perspective iscritical indeveloping the right transactional strategy. Often we can see through the complexities and stress of the situation, and focus our clients on the critical pros, cons, and potentials of any property. 

Our clients often take comfort in our transparency and guidance througheverystep of the process. This takes the “unknown” out of a process with which many people are unfamiliar. As such, we not only tell our clients what were commend, but make sure they understand our rationale. We also assist ineveryaspect of the transaction, from recommending and liaising withlegalrepresentation and mortgage providers, to setting up any staging or contracting needs that might improve the sale. 

For sellers, we work with clients to develop creative and modernmarketingstrategies that accentuate the highlights of their property. This not only ensures maximum exposure, but targets the right type of well qualified buyers. As a result, the Team has earned a reputation of positioning agents that get the job done, often on properties where other agents have not. 

For buyers, we really listen to the client and focus on what is important to them.This goes well beyond basics like size, neighborhood, and price.Inaddition, a property is not always what it may seem. Thus, we are very diligent in making sure the potential property is fully vetted, and the client knows the pros and cons of the unit both now and down the road. 

We truly view our client relationships as long term commitments. We believethisis built on honesty, hard work, premium service, and superior results.Through this philosophy, we have earned the trust of our clients. Their repeat business and recommendation is as high of a compliment a broker can receive.
