"A house is built of walls and beams; a home is made with love and dreams." A perfectionist dedicated to his job, Shai Egison's mission is to find his customers this perfect place to call home, and to help owners sell their prized properties for the greatest return. As a Manhattan real estate industry leader, and one of the finest agents in Manhattan, Shai is the partner you want by your side to represent you whether you are buying, selling or renting. He is an intensely goal-oriented individual who gets exhilarated by the pursuit of client satisfaction, and will not give up until your expectations are exceeded. "If I need to show you an apartment at six in the morning or eleven at night because of your work schedule, I'll always be there with a smile. If you need to move ASAP on a home, I'll prepare you well and go through all documents needed, so we can wrap things up quickly and make sure we're ready to secure the apartment you want to call home." Originally from Israel, Shai was drawn to real estate since he was six years old. He ultimately managed to fulfill his dream, moving to the greatest city of the world and doing what he knew was his calling. Now with years of real estate experience, the factors that keep him motivated and successful remain: hard work, honesty, trust and sensitive care to the needs of his customers and clients. Prior to joining Citi Habitats, Shai was a leading real estate salesperson at a smaller boutique brokerage. He specializes downtown, but works all over Manhattan to serve his clients' needs. Shai is a true people person with an ability to touch the lives of others, and a deep appreciation for the luxury NYC lifestyle. He understands that the process of acquiring or selling real estate is a complex emotional and financial decision, so strives to make each client’s experience as seamless as possible. Shai enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge of Manhattan, and the unique qualities each neighborhood has to offer. He holds a degree from the Tel-Aviv Institute of Business. His favorite pastimes include writing, camping, hiking, and exploring new places and cultures through worldwide travel.
