The Shenfeld Group, LLC/Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty
Michael Shenfeld of The Shenfeld Group, believes every client deserves the highest level of service in their real estate transaction, and has built his referral-based business on this practice. In his 16-year career in real estate, he’s made it a priority to provide a stress-free, white-glove experience to all of his clients, who have continually praised him for his positive attitude, integrity and unwavering professionalism. “Every client deserves to feel like they are my only client, and I always put their best interest at the heart of the transaction,” says Shenfeld, senior vice president, sales at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.
Working with buyers, sellers and investors with a range of experience levels and budgets, Shenfeld is a Certified Negotiation Expert, specializing in the Chicago and North Shore markets. “I go the extra mile during and after my time with my clients to ensure that I not only meet their goals, but exceed their expectations.”
Shenfeld notes his clients praise his service in unique ways – recent buyers said they could bring him along to any showing in any city, and he would still know more than the listing agent. Similarly, a seller who tried to sell their home with two other agents before being referred to Shenfeld, referred to him as Michael the Magician after successfully selling their home before it hit the market.
Shenfeld transitioned to the real estate industry from a career in professional product photography, and has since formed The Shenfeld Group and serves as a mentor for new agents. Prior to joining Jameson Sotheby’s in January, Shenfeld worked with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff for 15 years, where he was regularly recognized as a Chairman Circle Diamond top producer. He has consistently ranked among the Chicago Association of Realtors top 1 percent for sales volume and units closed. In 2017, Shenfeld received the Gold Level Volume award for closing over $44 million in residential sales, along with being ranked in the top 40 Realtors in Chicago and the top 75 in the greater Chicagoland area.
For the last 12 years, Shenfeld has served as a co-chair of the Golf Committee at The Josselyn Center for Mental Health. He is also active with the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and co-sponsors a table at their Four Star of Chicago Extravaganza event annually.
Shenfeld devotes his free time to his wife Lori, their two daughters and their sweet dog Bailey, and spending time boating on Lake Michigan. When time permits, you may even see him taking a Harley ride around the city.
