"After nearly a year of trying to sell our West Harlem condominium with a different broker team, we hired Michael Shapot. Within three months, Michael Ricardo Ravasini of the Shapot team at finally our home of over ten years. Michael Ricardo were not professional committed to ensuring the sale of our home, but they were also candid and pragmatic. After several showings and dampened interest, they sat down with us to review the market data and using facts (including website hits and trends), we agreed to a new pricing strategy that ultimately proved successful and within the timeframe that Michael predicted. Timing could not have been better, especially given the current economic environment and the pandemic. We are now in a strong position to find our forever home – staying in our beloved West Harlem neighborhood. We highly recommend Michael Shapot. He possesses a strong market sense, and knows what will sell and how to sell it in a challenged sellers’ market." - David & Amanda W.
