Focused on an exceptional client experience, Michael Shenfeld has spent two decades making a name for himself as a top producer and exemplary leader in the real estate industry. As founder of the Shenfeld Group LLC, a global real estate advisor at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty and a certified negotiation expert, Shenfeld serves buyers, sellers and investors of all types in Chicago and the northern suburbs. “I was born and raised in the North Shore and moved to the city about 25 years ago,” says Shenfeld, adding that he has owned properties in both areas. “I really enjoy working in both markets and have many clients who are moving from one to the other and who appreciate my expertise.”
Since joining Sotheby’s International Realty as a senior vice president of sales, Shenfeld quickly became a highly sought-after speaker for virtual real estate panels around the world. “I have grown my global referral network of top Sotheby’s agents who are strategic partners by traveling to national and international markets and spending time with other market leaders. Knowing the top agents personally and professionally has allowed me to match my clients with the right agents,” he says. “I want my clients to have the same white-glove experience they are accustomed too anywhere in the world.”
In 2022, Shenfeld and his team were recognized as one of RealTrends America’s Best Real Estate Professionals top 50 teams and ranked in the top 1.5 percent of 1.6 million agents nationally. He has previously received the Chicago Association of Realtors’ Platinum Level award, recognized among the top 75 agents in Chicago, and consistently ranked among the top 1 percent of Realtors in the city.
Shenfeld loves boating, traveling, golfing and photography. He’s also a foodie and loves cooking for friends and family. He is the proud father of two teenage daughters, one is a freshman at University of Alabama and the other is a sophomore in high school, along with Bailey their Australian Labradoodle.
