"Keeping a finger on the pulse of the market."


Michael believes that educating clients about market conditions and how they relate to their unique situation is key to establishing trusted, professional relationships. Michael has been a leader in the Manhattan real estate industry, with his finger on the pulse of the market, since leaving his career as an attorney and then being recognized with outstanding production awards at every real estate company he has been associated with.

What's the buzz?

"The Shapot Team worked tirelessly to find creative ways to market the property, attract potential buyers and ensure the buyer would secure financing and the coop Board's approval.  They introduced me to other wonderful professionals (lawyers, painters, flooring professionals, stagers, organizers, photographers, cleaners, movers, etc).  They consistently communicated throughout the process to ensure that my family was always in the know.

Thanks to their dedication, commitment, strategizing, planning and implementing, my apartment sold within a reasonable timeframe with minimal stress. I could not have asked for a better outcome."
