Bought a home in 2013.
Andy is a very, very, good real estate agent. He is patient, knowledgeable and responsive. He took the time to help my wife and I understand the Miami real estate market, and gave us helpful guidance and advice. When we were faced with a difficult and tense negotiation process, he was persistent and tenacious in getting us the property that we wanted. He also has an excellent referral network of lenders and other real estate related professionals. Looking forward to future transactions with Andy and/or his partner Josette at Wisecat.

Bought a home in 2013.
The buying experience was very easy, informative, and enjoyable. Andy took care of assuring we knew about the different areas, the pros and cons of each, and helped answer any concerns we had along the way. He was a superb negotiator and was clearly working to get the best deal for us as buyers. This last part is extremely hard to find these days so I would definitely recommend him to anyone currently thinking about buying or selling a home/condo.

Helped me rent a Condo home in Flamingo Lummus, Miami Beach, FL.
I would like to submit a recommendation for Andy Katz. I only had one afternoon in South Beach with Andy to see and possibly make an offer on a waterfront condo. We discussed what I was looking for and Andy went to work right away and sent me info on 20-30 properties. From there we whittled it down to a short list of 5-7 and saw 5 properties. Andy's expertise of the area was invaluable in helping me choose the right property for the right reason. He also knows what is going to happen in this area in the next few years. The closing went on time and he had 3 renters interested in the property before closing. We found an excellent tenant. Andy responds to calls and email promptly and works with you as an advisor and an agent. Andy's our man in South Beach. Highly recommend.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Flamingo Lummus, Miami Beach, FL.
I proudly recommend Andy's services. My wife and I were recently looking to sell our vacation home in SoBe. We randomly came across Andy's name on a list of Zillow real estate agents. I gave him a call and he stopped by the next day. At our meeting, Andy was well prepared and had a wealth of industry knowledge. A few days later, after we went back to NY, Andy took some pictures & video. The property was then listed in various social forums (e.g., Facebook, MLS, YouTube, etc.). Andy’s strategy worked to perfection! We had multiple all-cash offers for full asking price on the SAME DAY as our property was listed. Not one person saw the property; all offers were based solely on Andy's pictures + video. Andy did a great job for us and we have no trepidation in recommending him to anyone looking to sell in South Beach.

Bought a home in 2013.
Being a business owner and entrepreneur I also understand the needs of a consumer. I have to say that it is a true pleasure to deal with a professional that not only understands what the customer wants but is knowledgeable and experienced enough to guide him toward the best possible choices he could make.

My wife and I just closed on our first condo in South Beach and are absolutely delighted to have had Andy on our side. We feel that no one could have done a better job at guiding us through the process and most importantly keep our interests at heart in such a classy and tactful manner. I believe that starting our life as well as our business venture in Miami in such an easygoing and stress free way is just as important and crucial as all the memories that we look forward to make in the future.

I personally plan to use Andy and his agency for all my real estate needs in the future and I strongly recommend mr. Andy Katz and his agency to anyone who is looking into the Miami beach and south Florida markets.

Thank you again Andy! Kesi and Jennifer Dibrani

Showed home in 2013.
I discovered Andy Katz on Zillow by reading the other favorable reviews. Andy lived up to every positive comment I'd read. We had a limited time in Miami to find the ideal condo, so time was of the essence. Andy never dropped the ball from our introductory conversation (while we were still out of state), through our location process, to our closing. He always very prompt to answer emails and phone calls, and was especially good at running documents back and forth to the condo manager, even though his office was a the far end of Miami.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 in City Center, Miami Beach, FL.
Five Stars!! Our home-purchase deal is just closed and we got our home in the fabulous South Beach, which would never happen without Andy. As our buyer's agent, Andy walked through with us every step of this deal. He is professional, logic thinking, warmhearted, and energetic.

For the limited space, I'll just narrate three aspects. First, he really thinks for others, which makes him a wonderful person. For two “tourists” in South Beach, he would squeeze his schedule and drive us around open our eyes to the area; if he didn’t put his time and help like that, probably our idea of owning a home in South Beach will always be an idea. I want to thank him for not neglecting touring “strangers” : )

He is an excellent listener, which is rare and indicates his intelligence. He focuses when you express your needs, then, he gives you solution and analysis. Just like that, teaming up with him is smooth like Bach’s cello music.

Thirdly, he has super capability to help buyers. He knows the whole area like back of his hand and knows what he’s doing. He knows how to use electronic signing technology, tremendous helpful for non-local buyers like us. He replies emails at midnight, and next morning provides you a solution. He is as energetic and sunshine as the South Beach.

You want help? Call Andy. He is the man.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 in Belle Isle, Miami Beach, FL.
I worked with Andy Katz to purchase a condo in Miami Beach in June of this year. We began working together in February or March of 2012 and he was the only real estate agent who responded to my Zillow inquiry. He showed me lots of condos and we finally settled on one. He answered my questions and took videos of the condos for me as I was out of town during this search. I really appreciate all Andy's efforts in our search for a condo. He was fabulous to work with on this search and I would only work with him again in the future.

Bought a home in 2012.
Service, Service, Service!... Josette provided me stellar service! She made herself accessible to me at all times to answer any questions and concerns (no matter how big or small) that I had as this was my first buying experience. There was no pretension or attitude with Josette, but instead a genuine interest in helping me find my first home. She was quickly able to understand what I was looking for and confirmed appointments very fast to get inside the spaces that matched my criteria. She always got right back to me either on my cell, email, or text to keep me updated. She gained my trust and I would absolutely work with her again and recommend her to my friends and family. Aside from her extensive knowledge and insight, she is simply a cool person with a very friendly and likeable demeanor. I look forward to our continued relationship. Thanks Josette! I am loving my new Home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $625K in La Gorce, Miami Beach, FL.
This is the second time I have used Josette Wyse as my Real Estate Agents. Andy and Josette are highly motivated and extremely professional in their approach. Their local knowledge of the market is extraordinary and both look out for their clients and definitely go the extra mile to make things happen. I appreciated the fact that they listen to the buyers ideas and dreams without pushing their agenda, it is obvious they truly enjoy what they are doing. I would definitely recommend Josette and Andy without hesitation to anybody who is in the market for buying or renting property. It was a pleasure working with you, many thanks for helping me getting my dream home!
