Among the first seven founding members of the Partners Trust family and one of the Top 250 Best Real Estate Agents Nationally, as named by Wall Street Journal for four consecutive years, Dana Cataldi and her team are a force in Los Angeles real estate.

Dana Cataldi

Partner, Estates Director

Named by the Wall Street Journal and Real Trends as one of The Top 250 Best Real Estate Agents Nationally for four consecutive years, Dana Cataldi is a recognized influencer and industry expert. As one of seven original partners and one of the first females on the team, Dana is above all a bold Partners Trust leader with a stellar reputation. Though focused primarily on the Westside, Dana’s referral base has expanded to the far corners of Los Angeles. From the beachfront properties of Redondo Beach to the canyons of Topanga, it’s safe to say that Dana’s candid, driven and loyal nature follows her wherever she goes.


A dedicated single mother of four whose childhood consisted of playing ice hockey and handling a paper route in the thick of New Jersey blizzards, Dana is not one to back down from a challenge—nor is she one to squirm at gutting a fish, pass up an opportunity to pay it forward, or turn down tickets to a music festival.


“Dana’s ‘get her done’ attitude is infectious and her fun-loving nature rallies the people around her. She shares her vulnerability and authenticity with great candor and strength. I’m honored to call her my partner and thankful to consider her my dear friend.”

—Nick Segal, President & Founding Partner


Having come from a professional background in the entertainment industry where she worked on the marketing and production of events such as The GRAMMY Awards, Dana understands the art of communication. After learning how to manage radio personality Howard Stern before the age of 23, she is well-equipped to negotiate her way through any situation. As motherhood has fine-tuned her ability to juggle multiple tasks at once, Dana dedicates time to sharing that knowledge by teaching time management seminars for Partners Trust as well as organizing break-out groups designed to support and elevate fellow agents. Ever since her first sale in 2007, cultivating relationships, establishing trust and applying the utmost devotion to each and every transaction is the only way Dana knows how to do business.


“At the end of the day, the biggest compliment I can receive is hearing a glowing testimonial from my client.  This is what gets me up in the morning and makes me want to give 100% everyday.”


Kate McQueen

Associate Partner

Kate’s energy, tenacity and passion for Real Estate drive her to be a top agent. She believes that hard work, clear communication and integrity are the cornerstones of a successful business, and this is attested by the over 200 residential transactions she has worked on since beginning her career in Real Estate in 2011. Before that, she was studying behavioral neurobiology and completed her undergrad in three years with a B.A. in Psychology and Political Science.

Trained and inspired by Brian Tracy, Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie and Robert Kiyosaki, Kate is committed to personal and professional growth, constantly exploring new ways to excel and improve the Real Estate experience for her clients. She draws from her experience and instincts to protect her clients interests and proactively address details before issues arise. When challenges do emerge, Kate’s resourceful and enterprising nature allows her to creatively problem-solve to quickly identify a solution. She currently works on a team with Dana Cataldi, named Top Agent for the past two years by the Wall Street Journal's Real Trends. Together, their combined strengths, business acumen and availability offers buyers and sellers of everything from condos to high-end luxury estates with an unparalleled level of service and representation.


When she’s not helping clients, Kate can be found hiking Temescal Canyon, biking around the West Side or finding new ways to explore the outdoors and enjoy our amazing SoCal weather.
