Growing up in Baltimore as the son of antique dealers, Greg was introduced to Manhattan real estate at sixteen, when his father sent him in a truck filled with expensive European furniture for delivery and a slip of paper with a Fifth Avenue address scribbled on it.
Upon graduation from one of the most illustrious of Texas institutions, Greg cased Broadway from 72nd Street to Leonard, dropping off resumes to film production offices. Fourteen hours, 35 resumes, and five offers later, Greg was the proud recipient of an unpaid internship as a location scout on a small-budget movie with the best producer in the business.
He spent his days urgently looking for inexpensive places to make a movie and before long, Greg found himself negotiating deals to fly helicopters down 42nd Street, turn The Javits Center into JFK Airport for a couple of days, take over a stunning old limestone mansion on the Upper East Side for a month of filming, or lease the city’s most luxurious suite to the brightest of Hollywood’s stars.
Today, Greg combs the streets on foot (or on his 1958 Raleigh Sport) looking at townhouses and apartment buildings, knowing what and who is behind many of those windows and doors. Greg feels fortunate to live in a town of such historical worth, an island that has served as a springboard for so much innovation; a city whose very existence depends on its evolution – a city that embodies the good, the bad, and the in-between that make up this vast melting pot in which we live.
Greg resides downtown with his wife and children, where he takes pride in being able to walk them to school and through the streets in the evenings and weekends, passing on the knowledge he has gained through several stages of life here in New York.
The Shafer-McHale Team:
Having been colleagues and friends long before the red-hot market of 2007, Jesse Shafer and Greg McHale teamed up at the end of 2011 and have never looked back. Since joining forces, Jesse and Greg have closed well over 100 transactions and to date have logged over $300 million in sales combined. Their team efforts have consistently landed them in the top 2% of all real estate teams nationwide. Jesse and Greg’s winning formula in sales is simple but not easily replicated: straightforward communication, unwavering integrity, keen market insight, dogged persistence, and a dash of humor.
Natalie Hedden joined The Shafer-McHale Team as a Marketing Associate in 2013, and the team’s success continued from there. With an M.B.A. in Marketing, the creative collaboration amongst this team ensures innovative, unique, and compelling marketing efforts utilizing multiple channels.
There is much truth about the sum being greater than any of its parts, and in the case of the Shafer-McHale Team, Jesse, Greg, and Natalie have tapped into that synergy to give each one of their clients the most comprehensive, authentic, and honest customer service in the city.
