Dr. Jeffery S. Kotwica joins the team at Douglas Elliman South Florida after 21 successful years in one of America’s most trusted professions, the pharmaceutical industry. Today, he brings the same level of honesty, integrity, and care to his real estate business serving luxury buyers, sellers, and investors across the area’s most sought-after enclaves and island communities.
Beginning his career in Pharmacy Management at a young age, he was quickly promoted, managing 25-30 pharmacies for the largest grocer in Wisconsin and Chicago. His extensive background in Corporate Management has seen many successes and earned Jeffery both a proven track record and a superior reputation. Reaching a settlement agreement after five years with a Fortune 500 company, three state governments, and the Federal government is just one example of how his tenacity and fortitude has won accolades.
Today, Jeffery’s dedication to his clients is rooted in the same perseverance and professionalism. Choosy about which listings he takes on, he is keenly aware of what it takes to manage expectations and never lose focus. A savvy negotiator with a great sense of humor, he skillfully navigates the details of the transaction, putting his clients at ease. Attention to detail, a firm grasp on the trends of the market, availability, and a vast legal background round out his already impressive set of skills. These skills have helped rank Jeffery amongst the top 12% of agents company wide early in his career.
Working in both residential and commercial real estate, Jeffery has a trusted and enthusiastic team of agents, brokers, and investors to help serve the needs of his clients. On the commercial side, the team’s expertise lies in finding off-market long-term care facilities and pairing sellers with investors. His residential clients will find that Jeffery has a wealth of knowledge of South Florida’s most impressive isle communities. “I adore isle living,” says Jeffery. “In my opinion, the most beautiful homes have cars in the front and boats in the back. I enjoy helping others actuate their dream lifestyle in the same manner.”
Prior to moving to the Fort Lauderdale area six years ago, Jeffery spent 24 years in Pittsburgh and 13 in Milwaukee/Chicago. He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a Doctorate in Pharmacy where he graduated in the Top 25 of his class. Today, he makes his home in the beautiful Bermuda Riviera neighborhood of Ft Lauderdale where he can be found running most mornings. He enjoys boating, jet skiing, and networking and socializing on Las Olas Boulevard. Passionate about the law, he has spent several years as a volunteer FBI source to help prevent healthcare fraud.
