A graduate of UCLA, Hyleri first became a licensed real estate agent in her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio when she was only an 18 year old college freshman. Her young age presented a real obstacle to her in enlisting the trust of buyers and sellers, so she was forced to get creative and prove herself. Katzenberg met the challenge right away by getting a difficult residential property on a busy street rezoned commercial, which she then sold to a large company for 2 and a half times the asking price. She continued her Real Estate sales career in Fairfield County, CT as the team leader for Your CT Dream Team and as a top agent, she closed multi millions $$ in sales annually. Katzenberg extended her career to Florida where her husband owned TooJay's restaurants for many years before selling the chain and opening up a new chain called B Square. Many of her CT and NY clients were buying properties in South Florida and wanted to work with Hyleri, so she expanded her business. Her dedication to her client, perseverance and determination won over the confidence of a large following and has continued to be the qualities that have set her apart from the competition throughout her career.
Katzenberg is a former actress who has appeared in many films, on stage and televesion. She cofounded and helped run a union franchised talent agency in LA with her Mother. After her daughter was born with a facial disfigurement, Hyleri went on to become the founder and President of The Belle Foundation, a national non profit which aided children with facial deformities. Katzenberg successfully campaigned through the media and meetings in The White House to implement changes in the health care system as it pertained to vascular deformities. She has recently served as The PR Director for The Vascular Birthmark Foundation and chaired their Mark Of Beauty Gala in NYC with her husband.
Hyleri, mother of 2 and step mother of 5 is an entrepreneur, who always "thinks outside the box", Katzenberg loves the challenges of finding the right property for the right person. She describes herself as a real "people" person, who credits her successes in life with her passion to help others,whether it is through her non profit work or helping her clients to sell their property or to find that special dream house.
Hyleri Katzenberg is so energized to be working with Chuck Wobby and The Florida Dream Team who share her "client's first" philosophy.
