Licensed Real Estate Salesperson
"What do I love about real estate? I love meeting people from around the country, and around the world. I love that by guiding clients through the crazy NYC market, I get to be a part of their lives. There is nothing more satisfying than the smile on someone's face when they sign on their new home."
Shannon Whalen was born in San Diego, California to a couple of Navy doctors, and spent her childhood traveling the world until landing in New York in 2010. She moved to this amazing city after finishing up a degree in Classical Singing and Theatre Performance at The University at Albany. As most actors and musicians do in New York City, Shannon first started out bartending at some of New York’s best known craft beer bars only one day to realize that more flexibility, freedom and stability was to be found in New York City’s Real Estate industry. So in the winter of 2015, Shannon embarked on her Real Estate career while still pursuing her life-long dream of acting on film and stage.
Shannon now works with the largest independently owned real estate firm in New York City, getting to know her clients better than they know themselves---and finding them the homes of their dreams. When she's not with her clients, some of her favorite things include watching the Jets, modeling for painters and sculptors, and eating nachos. She has worked as a barista, a high school tutor, and whitewater guide on the mighty Hudson. She believes life is an adventure, and she looks forward to the ride.
