Way ahead of more than 1,300 Prudential agents in the state of Nevada, the Shapiro & Sher Group has been the best producing team for 5 consecutive years already, selling more homes than any other Prudential Real Estate Office in 2009, which makes it the #1 Team in the company. Specializing in Las Vegas luxury real estate, Florence Shapiro and Ivan Sher have sold homes with a total value of $70 million in 2009, twice the sales volume of the next closest competitor.
The Wall Street Journal has previously recognized the team as being in the Top Three Real Estate teams in North America, as well as ranking first in the entire international Prudential Network.
The Shapiro & Sher Group states that earning the top team rank in Nevada real estate is quite an honor. Florence Shapiro adds, “That it's exciting especially when you consider the incredible market factors that were up against.”
They credit their success from their intimate knowledge of the Las Vegas real estate market and a polished marketing plan that combines extensive Internet marketing, print media and direct mail. They also have a highly developed networking system of top Realtors, as well as both past and prospective clients.
Ivan Sher states, “Our success has always been a team effort; it is our cutting edge technology and constant desire to give our clients a unique, concierge-style service.” He adds that their website, www.lasvegasfinehomes.com, has been an incredible source of both national and international exposure.
Florence Shapiro and Ivan Sher have become the standard for professionalism, expertise and integrity in their industry, and are now looked upon as a legend in the Las Vegas luxury real estate market. Their wealth of knowledge has often made them the reliable source of information for builders, appraisers, developers and other Realtors. “Our minds are on the pulse of market fluctuations, its trends and the needs of people,” explains Shapiro. “Our office is staffed seven days a week, so no call goes unanswered, nor any request postponed. Service is the key. Our number one priority is assisting our clients in achieving their real estate goals, whether buying or selling.”
Because sophisticated clients demand a much higher level of expertise and service, Florence and Ivan approaches customers with a commitment to exceptional service. Their mastery of the Las Vegas real estate market, razor sharp skills, along with a team of dynamic and highly experienced professionals has earned them a reputation of being the best.
Florence Shapiro, originally from Paris, France, has a distinct sense of cosmopolitan awareness that perfectly suits the needs of her clientele. She has consistently been one step ahead of the many changes that have occurred in the Las Vegas real estate market since the 1970′s. As an integral part of these changes, she feels a deep responsibility towards both her clients and the city she’s called home for the last 30 years. Since 2002, Ivan Sher has been working with her and in early 2005, became her partner. Thus was the Shapiro & Sher Group born as a Premiere Luxury Boutique Brokerage. His true passion for the real estate business comes from the art of the deal, where he is aggressive in negotiating the best possible deal on behalf of his clients.
