Homes By Mara Realty of Syosset recently welcomed Kenny Schultz as one of its new Associate Real Estate brokers. New to the real estate sector, Schultz decided to venture into real estate and join Homes By Mara after enlisting Homes By Mara in 2020 to sell his Jericho home of 15 years. The firm also represented him as a buyer, leading to the purchase of the Greenlawn home he and his family reside in today.
“I couldn’t help but be inspired by how dedicated, diligent and ethical Mara Navaretta and her team were in representing me and my family on both the selling and buying front while we were looking to move,” Schultz explains. “At that time, I was in the process of considering a career change, so it was time to decide what it was that I wanted to redirect my new focus on. It was my experience working with Mara and her agency that made me realize real estate was my new calling and Homes By Mara was the place for me.”
Just before coming to Homes By Mara, Schultz managed a team of 200 people as a Station Operations Director at an Amazon Delivery Station in Staten Island. Prior to that, he worked as a Chief Operating Officer, where he built a staff of 200 cleaners and a dozen office employees from scratch at MyClean, Inc, while reporting to its New York, Chicago and Washington, DC offices. In addition, Schultz flew around the country resolving complicated multi-party environmental insurance claims when he was an AIG Complex Director for six
years at its Manhattan and Jersey City offices.
Schultz says his colorful career has allowed him to hone the skills of negotiating financial and contractual terms in complex claims and litigation that complement his new position as a real estate broker who is committed to serving the needs of today’s home buyers and
“I negotiate for a living and understand the importance of answering the bell for my clients– be it day or night,” Schultz stated.
Navaretta says Schultz is a great asset to Homes By Mara and the clients they work with. “Kenny’s diverse leadership roles in business coupled with his expertise in negotiation make him a natural fit for our agency and clients,” she explains.
“Kenny’s negotiating skills and understanding of quality client service is what makes him a fine addition to our team and a great complement to the core values that our agency is built upon.”
A native of Long Island who grew up in North Woodmere in the Five Towns, Schultz has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University School and is a practicing attorney specializing in insurance coverage with a Juris Doctor (JD) from NYU School of Law. He is also a Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Senior Certified Professional.
