    About Jesse

    New York City’s endless energy and incredible dynamism completely changed the way Jesse considers the world. Growing up in a small town on eastern Long Island, it wasn’t until his teenage years that Jesse discovered Manhattan was within reach by commuter rail, and before long he was hopping the train every chance he got. He spent his summers pounding the hot sidewalks as a messenger for his uncle’s printing company and seeing live music and comedy in the Village at night. There was no question about where to head upon graduation from a small liberal arts college upstate.

    Jesse started as an underling at a popular cable network, working his way up in the rapid-fire world of television production. Creating television programming from scratch taught him the intrinsic worth of quick thinking, follow-through, and being both pragmatic and creative in his approach to challenges. It was totally fascinating work, but as he grew professionally, so did his thinking. Eventually, Jesse wanted to create his own thriving business from the ground up.

    Turning his sights to real estate did not take much soul-searching. Because of his deep enthusiasm about Manhattan, it seemed only natural that Jesse should want to help others buy and sell their own slice of the Island. And over the course of fifteen years living in New York, he experienced many facets of the New York real estate market. Jesse has lived in nine different neighborhoods, three different boroughs, and picked up intimate knowledge of the city by roving it endlessly. Jesse learned how to size up property and move efficiently, and most importantly, he learned the value of what makes a home.

    Now a husband, a father, and a homeowner in beautiful Brownstone Brooklyn, Jesse believes it is not only the property and location that makes a house a home, but the people in it.

    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.
