Adam Katz is a real estate investor, developer and operator, and the President and Chief Executive Officer of Roxann Management Corp., a real estate management company located in Great Neck, New York.

For over 30 years, Adam has managed cooperatives, condominiums, commercial and residential investment properties, primarily in Manhattan. During the course of his career, Adam Katz has, at any given time, managed several thousand residential units, office buildings, and retail stores involving hundreds of millions of dollars. He is adept at problem solving and handling tenant repairs and complaints. He is intimately familiar with the structures and systems of the buildings themselves. Adam has extensive experience successfully negotiating commercial leases and service contracts and has developed comprehensive techniques for controlling every aspect of managing buildings.

Adam has extensive knowledge of the laws, codes and regulations governing residential properties in New York, including, but not limited to, the Rent Stabilization Law, The Emergency Tenant Protection Act, the New York City Rent Control Law, Section 8 housing, New York City Housing Preservation and Development rules and regulations, and the requirements of the Division of Housing and Community Renewal. From early on, Adam has litigated with tenants and is knowledgeable about the entire legal process. He aggressively pursues delinquent accounts and effectively manages accounts receivable. His vast amount of experience gives him essential knowledge of budgeting, disbursements, financial reporting, insurance matters, projections of operating and capital budgets, and financing.

As a developer, Adam’s experience includes purchasing primarily residential real estate and converting those buildings into cooperative or condominium ownership. Adam has converted over two dozen buildings throughout New York City and Long Island giving him substantial knowledge of capital systems of pre and post war buildings. Some of his proudest conversions in Manhattan are: 215 West 90th Street, 444 Central Park West, 50 Park Avenue and 203 West 90th Street. Adam also has a significant construction background and at 203 West 90th Street, he had five additional stories constructed on top of an already existing six story building. This added 40 more luxury units to the existing building and every one of those 40 units was sold almost immediately after coming on to the market.

Most recently via a foreclosure Adam and a 50% partner took over ownership of four buildings located in Hamilton Heights in upper Manhattan. One of Adam’s companies became the management company of the four properties. They are undertaking a massive cleanup of these properties including the removal of vast amounts of violations and an investment in the capital structures. This investment includes but is not limited to new windows throughout one of the buildings, new burner/boilers in all of the buildings, and roofing and façade work.

Adam has successfully financed his many construction, rehabilitation and conversion projects through major financial institutions. He is totally familiar with the intricacies of negotiating and obtaining funding for real property.

In addition to his real estate business, Adam is the founder, owner and operator of Talon Air, Inc., a Long Island based privately owned and operated jet company specializing in on-demand luxury air charter.

Adam grew up in New York City and Great Neck, New York. He graduated from Adelphi University with a Bachelors Degree in Finance, and later received a Juris Doctor degree from St. John’s Law School in 1989. He is admitted to practice law in the states of New York, Connecticut and the District of Columbia.

In his personal life, Adam is an active philanthropist, a board member of the Chabad of Port Washington, on the Board of Trustees of the Cradle of Aviation Museum in East Meadow, New York, and on the Board of Trustees of the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education in Brooklyn, New York.
