Kathy Zamechansky Receives Excellence in Community Service and Real Estate Awards
The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors recently awarded Zamechansky the Albert P. Schatz Legislative Advocacy Award for her continuous advocacy on government levels.
Kathy Zamechansky, President and CEO of KZA Realty in the Bronx, recently received two prestigious awards recognizing excellence in community service and real estate.
In October, at St. Ann’s Corner of Harm Reduction's 30th Annual Grace Awards Gala, Zamechansky was recognized for her unwavering commitment to the reduction of harm stemming from substance use. SACHR in the Bronx offers vital health resources like needle exchange, counseling, acupuncture, and buprenorphine treatment, addressing basic needs (showers, food, clothing) and providing outreach, leadership programs, and education for high-risk populations.
"We've collaborated with Kathy on various boards, witnessing her decades-long heroism for the Bronx and New York City,” said Michael Brady, Partner at Canon Strategy Group. "She's a behind-the-scenes champion, always there for organizations and individuals, making a transformative impact without seeking recognition.” Joyce Rivera, Founder and CEO of SACHR, added, “Kathy is a personal advocate for St. Ann's, and we are forever grateful for her trailblazing contributions. Her generosity and leadership exemplify compassion, determination, innovation, and courage, advancing humane, health-oriented public policies."
Also, The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors recently awarded Zamechansky the Albert P. Schatz Legislative Advocacy Award for her continuous advocacy on government levels. “As a real estate trade association with 14,000 members, our mission is to advocate for the industry. The Albert P. Schatz Legislative Advocacy Award recognizes members who advocate for Realtors and homeowners on various government levels. Kathy Zamechansky, a top New York City commercial real estate broker, is a deserving recipient due to her decades of work and advocacy efforts that revitalized the Bronx,” said Tony D'Anzica, 2023 President of HGAR.
With more than 20 years in public service and 15 years as a consultant, Zamechansky’s career includes key roles such as Chief of Staff, Assistant to a Congressman, Director of Community Boards, and President of the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corp before founding her firm in the late 1980s.
