“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” These were words spoken at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. by the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. These were words that Brooklyn native Shaheem Ivory has lived by since studying King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech in high school. As a full time college student in 2009, Shaheem was unemployed and looking for work when he bet on himself, got his real estate license, and never looked back. 

With an innate ability to deal with pressure and stress, Shaheem has been able to put his clients at ease during the relocation process. Clients feel comfortable with his amazing work ethic, and product knowledge. After his first full year in real estate, he was one of the top ten agents in production at his company. As he approached his sophomore year, he took on more of a leadership role. He began training newly assigned agents and began managing one of the top producing offices in the company. These abilities led to other opportunities within the organization. 

Real estate wasn’t Shaheem’s first love. Shaheem has always loved working with children. A life long sports fanatic, and former high school and college baseball player, he loves teaching the game of baseball, basketball, and football. He has worked with youth sports organizations in the past as a coach and assistant coach. He teaches the sports to his own children, as well as the neighborhood children in Bedford Stuyvesant where he grew up. “I just love seeing children playing sports. Too many of our youth are detached from the rest of the world because they are too connected their electronic devices.” He is very active in his childrens’ schools, and is lobbying to acquire more business, finance, and sports activities in NYC public schools. By doing so, children can become more connected to “the real world” and will be better abled to seamlessly transition to adulthood. Equipped with these basic elements, Shaheem believes these are a part of the core foundation to lead successful lives. 

It is Shaheem’s philanthropist demeanor, and his desire to provide a satisfactory and positive experience, that has kept him in the real estate business since 2009. He has helped hundreds of people relocate in the fastest moving city in the world. A student of the business, Shaheem is always abreast to what is going on in the real estate market that changes daily. This allows him to always adapt and keep clients in tune with what’s going on. He has a proven track record, and is looking forward to bigger opportunities in the future.

My housing hunt was smooth and painless, thanks in large part to Shaheem. He was extremely friendly and very professional which made the entire experience very pleasant. I especially appreciated his consistent communication and how quickly we were able to move from showing to lease signing. Overall a great experience. You will not regret working with Shaheem. Thanks!

I have heard many horror stories about brokers, and was nervous at the idea of working with one. Shaheem was a really chill guy and didn't push me at any point during the process. he was informative and always available if I had any questions.

Shaheem was a wonderful broker to work with. He has a great database of listings and was very polite and thoughtful. He knew what I was looking for and actively found places for me to look at. When actually seeing apartments, he made sure he had the answers I wanted and allowed me plenty of time to see all of the aspects. I never felt rushed or belittled as I have with some other brokers.

When finally ready to rent and sign a lease, Shaheem was always willing to take my calls and texts, as well as put up with my anxiety. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in Brooklyn.

I had been looking for a one bedroom for two months. I was really steadfast in what I wanted. Shaheem showed me exactly what I was looking for! . The process was super fast and easy which is a major plus. He even went above and beyond when on my move in date, the locks had been changed but the key did not match. I was in the hall with all of my belongings. Shaheem dropped what he was doing, came over, called the contractor, paid for the contractors gas so that he would come over on a Friday night, all so I could move in the day that I had expected. I got a fantastic deal and he was the one that made it happen. If you want a guy that is trustworthy and makes it happen then this is your guy. Will certainly recommend. Professional. Efficient. Fast.

We met with Shaheem to see a couple of apartments in the Clinton Hill and Bed Stuy areas, he was really kind and passed the main broker test for me which is asking about what we actually want in an apartment, and trying to find something that would better match our needs. When the first apartment wasn't what we were looking for, he followed up with us later in the day to see something better. We're still in our search and not sure if we'll end up renting through Shaheem, but I would not hesitate to contact him while you're conducting your search.

Shaheem was a pleasure to work with. He responded almost immediately to my initial inquiry and worked hard to ensure that my husband and I found the right apartment for us. Would highly recommend him to other apartment seekers.

Shaheem responded to my inquiry very quickly, and was very flexible when helping me pick a viewing time to see the available studio in Brooklyn. He was knowledgable about the apartment, building, and location, and maintained a friendly and helpful demeanor throughout the process. Although I did not end up renting the studio in question (as I decided to stay in Manhattan), I would still highly recommend him for other people searching for apartments.

Shaheem was awesome. I just moved from Florida and tried looking for a place on Craigslist. After looking at many less thaws acceptable apartments I decided to look for a broker. From the start Shaheem was very helpful. My credit sucked! And he made it all happen. He didn't waste my time showing me apartment I wouldn't like. He knew what I wanted and he found it for us. After the first apartment Wei like fell thru because of bad credit he kept looking and the very next day found me an apartment in the exact area we liked. He was easy to get in touch with and was very down to earth. I would reccomend anyone to Shaheem in a heart beat. Thanks again Shaheem.

Shaheem has been a great help. He is very knowledgeable about the Brooklyn market. Me moving from Maryland, I didn't know much. He put me at ease with professionalism and character. The first 2 apartments I saw, I would have taken either one, but Shaheem wanted to show me all he had that he thought would be perfect for me. I ended up taking an apartment in Carroll Gardens that I plan on being in for a dew years. I would recommend him in a heart beat!
