Frances Katzen, the founder and leader of the Katzen Team, frequently receives industry-wide accolades for successfully negotiating and completing complicated deals.
Frances consistently has made Douglas Elliman's prestigious top 10 list for highest grossing production in both sales volume and total transactions for the last decade. With well over $1.5 billion in total sales and consistently selling in excess of $150 million annually, Frances is a true powerhouse in the New York City real estate market.

Frances Katzen serves a sophisticated and international clientele, with contacts in the US, Europe, Australia and the Middle East. This helps maximize demand for her clients, given the increasingly global bid for New York City real estate. Frances possesses a sharp and detailed memory for real estate data, such as apartment layouts, building histories, new developments, recent sales comparables, pricing, and the historical financial performance of areas, buildings and apartments.

This knowledge, combined with a flair for working with clients from all sectors of New York City and an appreciation of her clients' desire for premium service, discretion, and efficiency, has allowed Frances to earn the loyalties of financiers, celebrities, real estate investors, developers, and the art culture of New York City. In addition, buyers and sellers alike benefit from Frances' honest and straight forward approach to real estate, investment analysis, and her creative financial consultation.

As a creative marketer, Frances' comprehensive marketing campaign includes preparation of floor plans, staging, high quality photography as well as outstanding print and online materials. In addition, Frances publicizes a monthly online newsletter, www.thekatzenreport.com, which is a comprehensive source for the latest real estate trends, market data, and a showcase of spectacular homes.

Frances also possesses instincts, innate focus, creativity, and determination that drive her to excel at what she does. Born in South Africa and raised in Sydney, Australia, she came to New York at the age of 15 to study at the School of American Ballet and went on to dance professionally for 14 years with American Ballet Theater, the Miami City Ballet, and as a soloist with the Suzanne Farrell Ballet at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Her creative, demanding, and competitive background has contributed to her ability to build a full service brokerage business in one of the most fast-paced and intense industries in the world.

Finally, with a great knack for putting herself in other people's shoes, Frances truly listens to her clients' needs and has an uncanny ability to anticipate their wants. In Frances' expert hands, her clients avoid feeling the crunch of New York City's fast-paced sales market while getting the most it has to offer.

"Time is of the essence in New York. I listen attentively then follow up with thorough research that lets me maximize my clients' time, all the while trying to make someone's purchase or sale as seamless and rewarding as possible."
