Lee Shapiro of Realty World went above and beyond to help us get our home ready to sell. Lee is very knowledgeable when it comes to what people are looking for when buying a home. He always made himself available to us when we had concerns or questions and got back to us right away.
Due to the fact that we live in a different state and have health issues, that prevented us from being able to travel to California very often. But Lee was there for us every step of the way to make sure the home improvements we were having done in a timely and proper manner. Lee kept us updated by phone and emails when work was being done on the house.
Lee also suggested what we could do to make the house more desirable to buyers. We took his advice with new carpet and floor tile and painting inside and out. Due to his knowledge of the area and what people are looking for, we took his advice on paint colors and carpeting. He oversaw ever step and updated us frequently.
Because of Lee’s help and knowledge, we sold our home in 3 days, and got more than we were asking. We are also able to do all the paperwork involved in the sale via the computer. And during escrow, he kept us updated on how things were going.
When escrow closed, Lee called us within minutes of escrow closing to congratulate us. We very highly recommend Lee Shapiro and Realty World for all your buying and selling needs. Lee truly is the best in his field in our opinion. I would not hesitate to use Lee Shapiro and Realty World again if I ever have the need.

I recently had the personal and professional pleasure of having Lee Shapiro of Realty World represent me in my capacity as Trustee of a Trust regarding the sale of a single family residence in Concord, California.
Lee was referred to me by a property manager located in the San Jose area.
I met with Lee at the property before agreeing to engage his services. I found him to be an extremely knowledgeable and caring person. Lee did not know at the time I was interviewing him that I also have a Real Estate Brokers License and was therefore familiar with the process of listing and selling properties. I am a firm believer in not having to reinvent the wheel every time I want to go for a ride.
The next time I have a need for a Realtor in the Concord/Walnut Creek area I will not have to think twice. Instead I will just give Lee a call, give him the particulars, and let him do what he does best which is competently and professionally represent a party in a real estate transaction. If anyone reading this letter seeks further information or comment, then they are certainly free to contact me at their convenience.

During the past year I have had the unenviable task of walking with six realtors; some for longer periods of time than others. Three of the six were barely adequate. Two failed even the smaller measure. Then there is Lee Shapiro. Lee stands so far above the others I have dealt with it is almost unfair to make a comparison. He worked with me closely, kept me informed at every step and made sure I understood what was happening even when that must have been frustrating to him.
I never had a doubt that he knew what he was doing and the results bore that confidence out. Am I satisfied with Lee Shapiro? Would I recommend him to others? There is not a strong enough affirmative to answer either question. I am, I have, and I will continue to do so as I recommend him to anyone in need of a realtor.
For a total of 5 years, Lee Shapiro was the rental property manager of our condominium since we have been living abroad. Over this term, we have had a few tenants, but to our delight, our unit has never gone unoccupied. I believe this is thanks to Mr. Shapiro’s excellent service and proactive and effective approach to real estate.
Despite our distance, Mr. Shapiro kept us apprise of all activities and incidents related to our property, and managed it with perseverance and honesty. He also provided us with expert real estate consultation as we explored idea for selling. He gave us updated advice on real estate conditions, and in 2015, within a couple weeks of us deciding to finally put our property on the market, he was able to secure a buyer and managed all of the extensive paperwork.
We were very pleased with Mr. Shapiro’s excellent service and would recommend him to anyone in search for an expert realtor.
Lee Shapiro managed our property for more than 5 years, throughout the period everything was handled professionally and without any issues. Lee has been not only a partner to us but also a great help in terms of maximizing profit from our rental and making sure the property is maintained and well kept.
In addition, he helped us sell the property this month, selling from a distance can be difficult and unsettling for the owners, Lee was instrumental of making the entire process a breeze. It was a quick sale and perfect closing!
I would highly recommend Lee to anyone considering his services.
