Born, raised and current resident of Dix Hills, I am a true Long Islander. After graduating SUNY Oneonta with a B.S. in business and communications, the calling to return back to my roots and start my adult life on Long Island was strong. Along with my wife, Ilyse, and two sons, Rob and Brian, we take pride in our Long Island heritage and community. After 10+ years of coaching soccer, baseball and football I realize the importance of working within the community to help maintain the strong family values that run throughout Long Island.

Regardless of the season, being outside in the fresh air is an important part of who I am. Whether it is skiing in Vermont, golfing on Long Island or swimming at Robert Moses, the Flattau family always tries to stay active. When not enjoying the outdoors you can find me cooking or preparing for a day of watching football with family and friends. I am involved in fundraising for and a proud supporter of The Parkinson's Foundation, The Michael J. Fox Foundation, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, The Alzheimer's Association and the local high school's PTSA.

My business career started at Bank Leumi as a financial analyst and business development relationship manager in the Commercial Real Estate Lending Division. Quickly rising through the ranks to Assistant Vice President I parlayed my knowledge of real estate into an 18 year career at the CoStar Group, the leader in commercial real estate information and marketing. At CoStar, I was able to focus on real estate and advertising while establishing myself as a true leader of people. The last six years at CoStar were spent as a Regional Director, managing a strong team of digital advertising salespeople throughout the country. Training my team members on the complicated digital platforms we used and helping them budget, forecast and achieve their goals became my area of expertise.

I know how stressful it can be to search for the right care and the best place to live for a loved one in crisis. The abundance of options, establishing budgets, identifying the specific needs and all of the paperwork required can make the process overwhelming. When my uncle Walter was released from the hospital into a rehab facility, as his primary care-giver I was given a list of options; home care companies and assisted living communities and sent on my way. The more places we visited and the more companies we interviewed the more confused we felt.

It was difficult to keep the details of each conversation, company and community straight. We needed someone to take us by the hand and explain which option would best fit Walter's needs.

I later went through similar processes with my mom, Carol and my father-in-law, Mark. Each time learning more about the process and each time wishing I had assistance in navigating these daunting tasks.

I studied Business and Communications in college and spent the last 30 years in varying roles in finance, sales and management. It wasn’t until I’d gone through this personal experience that I realized my true passion.

I decided to become a Senior Care Authority Advisor to help other families avoid what my family and I went through.

Combining my background in developing relationships, client retention, client service and sales management, with my personal experiences of navigating the health care system I am well suited to helping seniors and families find the right fit for their personalities and needs. I want them to find a place that will feel like home. I want to be the light they see when they are in that dark uncertain place I once was.

I was born, raised and currently reside in the same Long Island town in which I grew up. I spend much of my time visiting and reviewing Long Island's senior communities — including assisted living, independent living, memory care, and skilled nursing facilities — to help my clients make the best possible decision for their loved ones. I meet one-on-one with families to assess their needs. I accompany them on visits to top-rated facilities, assist with negotiations and paperwork, and follow up with families after a placement is made. If the timing isn't right for moving into a senior living community, I will help the care giver, family and senior best understand all of the options available to them.

After 10 plus years of coaching youth soccer, baseball and football I decided to help families in finding the best places for their loved ones to live and receive the proper care. When not striving to make a difference in seniors’ lives, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. As a fan of fresh air and the outdoors, my wife Ilyse, son's Rob and Brian and I spend time skiing in Vermont, golfing on Long Island, going to Robert Moses and Fire Island or barbecuing in preparation for watching Sunday football.
