Get to know Kari Battaglia, PA
Born in Long Island New York, I spent my summers enjoying the Jersey Shore growing up. My Step Dad played for the New York Mets (back in his day) and I went to Shea Stadium to watch the Mets games with my family and I loved it. My parents owned a small delicatessen and bait shop located directly on Huntington Harbor and we use to help my Mom cook and clean for the Deli while my Step Dad went digging for worms to sell at his bait shop. I learned an early age what it took to successfully run your own business.
My family and I moved from Long Island New York to Florida in the summer of 1977. I am a single mother of three teenagers all whom are currently enrolled in our local school system. Before real estate, I developed a career in the stock brokerage industry focusing on wealth preservation and estate planning for over 18+ years. During that time, I earned a Series 7 License, Series 63 License, Life & Variable Annuity License and served in many positions including Operations Manager in Tampa Florida for over 5 years. I later married a
real estate developer/investor whose father was a local home builder. Having a family in the home building business, real estate was a natural career move for me. I have been involved real estate since 1994 as an investor/owner, owning over 46 properties at one point and I
have won numerous awards over the years, including Rookie of the Year in 2009, Multi Million Dollar Producer 2009-2016, RE/MAX 100% Club 2013-2015, and RE/MAX Alliance Group Spirit Award 2015.
I am an experienced full time Realtor and currently President of the Venice Area Board of Realtors 2017. I believe that satisfying the customer is simply the minimum requirement for staying in the business and I work constantly to improve my systems, processes and services to go well beyond the standard level of service provided by most agents. I built my business on a strong foundation of core values and purpose and I am dedicated to continuing self improvement, positive attitudes and most importantly, family. My passion for customer service comes first with every person that walks through the door. The main objective is to get you the most amount of money in the least amount of time and with the least amount of hassles to you. I strive to provide you with the best service in the industry, while keeping you informed about every aspect of the transaction along the way.

Kari Battaglia became know to us through her website. Her strong credentials , her well appointed website and speaking directly with her convinced my husband and me that she would be the perfect Real Estate Broker for us. Kari was presented with the task of working with us from “out of state”, and with very specific guidelines of what we were looking for. Our knowledge of Venice from previously living there; helped us pick the areas we wanted to look in, but to find just that “perfect house” could be a challenge. Kari gave it her all! Long hours of searching, daily updates, her honesty and integrity throughout the whole process and her most valuable knowledge in all phases of real estate was so impressive and paid off in the end. As a Broker working for us; she went the “extra mile” with helping us in many areas that she wasn’t responsible for, in order to make our dream come true. If you are looking for that”special” Real Estate Broker, with a caring manner, integrity and a true professional; I urge you to call Kari Battaglia. She is the type of person I would be proud to also call a friend. She really is that great! We would use Kari again without question and we will recommend her to anyone we know who needs an expert in Buying or Selling a home. You would be doing yourself a favor by giving Kari your business.
