Karen Maerovitz serves as Director of Leasing and Sales at Katz & Associates. She focuses on tenant and landlord representation as well as new business development throughout South Florida, primarily in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Karen is an expert at attending and planning professional networking events. She recently launched Brokers Who Zoom, a platform where multiple times a week, 100+ brokers connect via Zoom to discuss expanding retailers and properties they represent. The concept has spread across the East Coast and is in lieu of the Brokers Who Lunch event series Karen created in 2018 to bring tenant and landlord brokers together to share details about their active clients and listings. The monthly lunch is sponsored by a landlord and hosted at their properties.
In 2009, Maerovitz saw the opportunity to help small business owners and other landlords in need of marketing support and started her own business in a newly created niche market. With much success, her clients were able to sustain tenants and increase sales during a struggling economy.
Karen is involved with numerous professional and philanthropic organizations including the Parkinson’s Foundation. A native of Miami with Israeli roots, Karen supports the Miami Jewish Federation’s annual fundraiser/networking event, Sunset Over Miami. She has held leadership positions with ICSC for over 6 years. Karen speaks both Hebrew and Spanish and is a connoisseur of South Florida.
