After I finished my B.A. in Communications at the University of Colorado in 2002, I explored different career opportunities.
I explored different career opportunities.
I had the opportunity to work for Walters Gottlieb Partners, a commercial real estate brokerage firm in West Palm Beach, and received my real estate license. (Commercial real estate includes retail, office, and industrial space.)
During the following year, I landed a major listing to represent three towers, The Forum Three on Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard. Of the 275,000 square feet in those towers, about 175,000 square feet were vacant, and therefore an opportunity to add value. The market was hot, and we managed to lease a lot of the space. I learned a lot about commercial real estate on that job, drawing up leases, working in harmony with a management team, and earning commissions.

I went on from there to work for Grubb & Ellis, an international brokerage. Leaving Walters Gottlieb was extremely tough because I am a team guy, and they took a chance on me which I will always appreciate.

Then, in 2005, with my father scheduled for major surgery, I joined the family business. Before Dad’s surgery, I tried to learn as much as I could about Shapiro|Pertnoy and Dad’s day-to-day work so I could step in while he was recovering. My makeshift desk was composed of a wooden door lying flat on some files (computer wires snaked through the door-handle hole). I learned about the leasing and management of our own properties as well as our lending business, S&P Capital Corporation. Thankfully, my father healed quickly.
When the recession of 2006–2014 hit us, the days of 100% occupancy in our commercial buildings were gone. So, I put my leasing and management hat back on—I showed space and marketed our properties, something I had missed. My career had started in a hot market so I knew what to do when things are going well. During the recession, I had to learn what to do when things are challenging. Being able to help businesses secure commercial space and helping other property owners lease and sell property became a goal that led to the growth of Shapiro|Pertnoy’s Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Division, the Chancellor Property Group.
I put my leasing and management hat back on…
Wellington is where Shapiro|Pertnoy started and where I grew up. In 2011 my wife, baby son, and I moved back, and we are now happily embedded here in Wellington. I love spending time with my kids and, when I have time, playing golf and going fishing—and now, engaging in my latest joy: philanthropic work. I really love it. Recently I said to my wife, “Philanthropy is my new buzz!” It is such a joy to change someone’s day or even someone’s life.
