Most real estate professionals report that the business was a calling for them. Some find their way to it after careers in other fields; others adopt it as soon as they can out of school. Then there are the special few who are born to it. Max Kotler is one of the latter.
He comes by it honestly – Max’s father and uncle are veterans of the Manhattan brokerage community; both of them have been mainstays at Douglas Elliman for decades. They instilled in Max an abiding interest in property transaction, and a profound appreciation for how one’s labor can be harnessed to help others achieve a better life.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Max moved to New York City after high school to launch his career in residential brokerage. Almost immediately, his positive personality and service orientation began to achieve results. Max listens to his clients, works proactively to understand their unique needs, and transforms what he learns into a plan to exceed their expectations. He dedicates himself to each client and to their best outcome, whether they are looking to buy, sell or rent a home. His flexibility, teamwork mindset, critical thinking, problem-solving, and ability to navigate complex situations with grace make him an outstanding strategic advisor.
When not working, you can often find Max snowboarding. “Nothing compares to being on a massive mountain, surrounded by nature, doing something I love.” He also enjoys urban landscape photography and is an ongoing student of the beauty and grandeur of New York’s buildings and architecture.
Put Max’s skills to work for you, and begin your journey towards your ideal vision of New York City life.
