With a style that is both personable and professional, New York native Saul Shapiro thrives on helping people exceed their real estate goals. A fantastic listener who approaches every challenge with confidence and a sense of humor, his clients praise his ability to carefully attend to every detail, from beginning to end, forging lifelong partnerships in the process.
Prior to real estate, Saul honed his tenacious negotiating skills, broad business acumen and effortless way with people as a successful music industry executive with the iconic Capitol Records and Blue Note Records labels. During that 20-year career, he represented world-famous artists across all genres of music. Motivated by his own experiences purchasing homes and investment properties, he turned his renowned salesmanship to real estate where he's had success working with first-time buyers to seasoned investors, across Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Born and raised in New York City, Saul has also resided in Los Angeles and Chicago. He's been a Brooklyn homeowner since 2000, and he also serves on his co-op board — another boon to his clients. When not hard at work, Saul can frequently be found in Prospect Park or in his Park Slope neighborhood accompanied by his dog Jadon.

" Saul and I have worked together in the music business for over 15 years and in that time he’s not only been a colleague but a friend. I was already familiar with his salesmanship skills and his forte at building relationships, so he was the perfect choice as my agent when we our West Village apartment."
Cem & Jenni K.
" Saul walked us through the whole process from start to finish, put together a well-planned houses and marketing plan -- got us a great price on our apartment in Park Slope and remained highly involved through the closing."

" What can I say? When I contacted Mike & Marta, I had 2 weeks to put my 2 bedroom on the market. The team quickly came up with a strategy that priced the apartment 10% above what I originally had in mind. They rolled up their sleeves and got to work staging our apartment and brought it back to its former glorious self (before the 2 kids came along...)
We had multiple offers 3 days after the first and ended up closing 7% above their recommended asking price. The Mike & Marta Team supported us throughout the process. They effectively removed the burden of having to worry about getting the apartment , which was priceless considering we had to move the whole family to a new out of the city. Before I , I wasn’t sure I wanted a broker. I now recommend any friends that sell their place to absolutely get a broker, but not just any broker: Get the Mike & Marta Team! "
" The Mike & Marta team has repeatedly come through for us with win after win. We are out of state now and they handled everything seamlessly and successfully in the rental of one apartment and sale of another. For the sale, their marketing strategy resulted in an accepted offer within a few days of the first that was 15% over ask, and culminated with the fastest, smoothest closing I have ever been a part of. They are passionate, engaged and thoughtful - I highly recommend them. "
