Local Expertise. Global Connections.
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, Michael 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 Michael, adding that he still owns property 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 as a senior vice president of sales, Michael 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 and 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 live their best life."
In 2020, Michael was voted by his peers to receive the City Residential Huzenis Award for his commitment to advocacy, education and ethicacy within the industry. 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% of Realtors in the city.
Michael loves boating, traveling, golfing and photography. He’s also a foodie and loves cooking for friends and family and is the proud father of two daughters who give his life meaning and purpose.
