Rae Catanese Real EState Insider Tampa

About Rae Catanese, Realtor at RE/MAX Bay to Bay, Tampa, Fl

I’ve been a licensed Realtor since 2002 and the author of The Tampa Real Estate Insider Blog, which I started in 2006 — now, my blog is a top-ranking resource for homebuyers and sellers looking for hot topics and trends in the Tampa real estate market. I write about topics that will help my readers navigate the world of Tampa real estate. I share market statistics, pointers for selling homes, home buying tips and recap case studies of tough-to-move properties that I got to the closing table.

I’ve been featured in the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper,  on, HGTV’s website, and I’m a contributing writer for Inman News, where I take a higher-level look at real estate industry topics, share personal experiences of how I use the Internet, social media and search engine optimization to provide maximum results in real estate marketing to sellers.  One of my listings in St. Petersburg, Fl was the MOST viewed home in the U.S. on Zillow in 2014, and also featured in HGTV’s print magazine.  You can read more about how I got the most viewed home on Zillow here. 

I truly enjoy working with my clients, both buyers and sellers. Exceeding my client’s expectations means more to me than a sale.  Being successful means different things to different people, and for me, it is all about my clients being excited about their home buying or selling experience.

In 2014, my team and I generated over $12 million in sales.
