You Are Known By The Company You Keep

We’d love to get to know you. Here is a little bit about our leadership team.


John Martinelli


A realtor since 1973, John Martinelli has undying passion and knowledge for real estate and life, in general. He started his career as General Manager of Century 21 GR Associates, Stoneham, MA and continued on to several prestigious positions with the brand before deciding to move to the sunnier climes of Coral Springs in 1991. Leveraging his real estate expertise, he achieved ""Top Sales Associate - Broward County"" with the former Arvida Realty Services, which is now Coldwell Banker and subsequently accepted the position of Branch Manager for Coldwell Banker, University Drive in Coral Springs in 1999. Since his leadership, this office has ranked amongst the top offices in the entire State of Florida.

John is a true people's person and enjoys working with his customers and his team alike. He is deeply invested in his team and nurtures his agents to help them meet and exceed their customers' and their own personal expectations.

A native of the Boston area, John continues to call the Coral Springs area home. When not engaging in real estate, John enjoys spending time with his wife Laura, family of 4 children and 4 grandchildren, and traveling whenever time allows! John is a former professional musician who traveled extensively during his musical career, a ""Cruise Junkie"" and finds this the best way to relax. He also is a tennis fan as his 11 year old daughter happens to be a tennis prodigy.

Katy Martinelli


"Katy leads the daily operations of Real Living 1st Choice Realty and is recognized by the team as their thought leader and inspiration. Having had a successful accounting career managing luxury yachts, Katy decided to utilize her experience and follow her family roots into real estate and currently holds the position of Manager at Real Living 1st Choice Realty.

She enjoys keeping up to speed about innovations and is actively engaged in educating and training agents to use the best-in-class technology to meet and exceed their customers' expectations. Katy is equally informed about real estate trends and nuances of the local market, and combines her well rounded expertise to help Real Living 1st Choice Realty achieve new heights every day. She is instrumental in guiding the team and helping them learn and grow. As the agents frequently tell people, ""I learned more in one week with Katy than I learned in 10 years from my past real estate company"".

Katy is married to her husband Glenn and has two young daughters, Ayden and Addison, and an Australian Shepherd named ""Dasher"". The Real Living 1st Choice Realty team has enjoyed seeing the girls grow up… they have been coming into the office since they were two weeks old! Thankfully Katy has a lot of support from her Firefighter husband so she can work and be a great mom equally! Katy loves to bake and decorate cakes, and volunteer at her daughter's school.

We Walk The Talk

We are committed to making every real estate experience the best ever. We invest in making our agents superheroes who lead their customers home – technology, ongoing training and mentoring are only some of the ways that we help you grow. But don’t take our word for it, here is what our agents have to say about being a part of the family.
