Shawn Halan, born and raised the son of an architect/builder in Michigan, grew up walking properties, tracing his father’s architectural sketches, and honing his passion for design.
Shawn studied real estate and earned his diploma in Real Estate from New York University and began his real estate career with The John J Reynolds, Company, later acquired by Helmsley Spear. He went on to represent some of the largest and most renowned office buildings in midtown New York.
He was later promoted and transferred to California as Vice President of Sales, representing the landlord of the Grand Avenue Plaza, the last skyscraper to be built, until recently, in downtown Los Angeles.
This is where Shawn found his pride and passion for Southern California real estate.
Throughout his fifteen years of experience in the industry for both commercial and residential real estate, Shawn continues to show unprecedented service for his clients. “Shawn has a love for real estate, people, service, integrity, and negotiating,” says Scott MacDonald, Senior Manager for The McMonigle Group. “He excels at evaluating homes, and has a keen eye for what adds value or needs to be improved to market a home most efficiently.”
While exceptionally well-informed and experienced within the Pelican, Bear Brand and Nellie Gail Ranch communities, Shawn has been very successful throughout the entire Southern California region.
Shawn is mainly recognized for his savvy negotiating and engaged demeanor, yet prides himself on honesty, reliability and integrity. He always credits his mother’s beliefs and prayers for his strong values — values that have governed his actions and guided him to where he is today.
It was a humorously perilous business for both of us. For, before we proceed further, it must be said that the monkey-rope was fast at both ends; fast to Queequeg's broad canvas belt, and fast to my narrow leather one. So that for better or for worse, we two, for the time, were wedded; and should poor Queequeg sink to rise no more.
