Shapiro & Sher are proven leaders in the fine home industry in Las Vegas and Henderson. In 2005, Lisa Goulston was hired, trained and mentored by both Florence Shapiro and Ivan Sher. In August 2016, Goulston was hit hard by the sudden passing of her mentor Shapiro. Goulston continues to keep her in the forefront of her memory, holding strong to her core values of conducting her business with the highest standards of honesty, integrity and grace.
Goulston, Fine Home Specialist, has called Las Vegas home for over 38 years. Prior to working with Shapiro & Sher, she enjoyed working at JMA Architecture Studios as the assistant to the vice president, Edward A. Vance, AIA. But when her son Kyle was born, she felt her time would be best served at home being his mom until he began his schooling.
“Once Kyle was settled into school, I decided to go back into the work force. We had always purchased and sold our homes through Florence [Shapiro], so I had asked her to have lunch with me to discuss the possibility of working in real estate, but I didn’t want to learn from anyone but her. The company had just opened their boutique office, which is where I work today,” Goulston explained. “I have learned so much from Florence and Ivan and continue to learn and grow each day.”
At the core of Shapiro & Sher is a leader (Ivan Sher) who is in tune with each and every person on the team. “He knows our strengths as well as our weaknesses and encourages us to be the very BEST version of ourselves. We are family and in this competetive world of real estate, it is quite refreshing.”
“Today’s buyers and sellers are very savvy,” Goulston explained. “They know how to research market values and pretty much know what they want before they ever reach out to an agent. I am here to help them achieve their goals, whether it’s assisting sellers to get the most money for their home or finding the perfect home to fit a buyer’s lifestyle at the best price.” Goulston’s knowledge of the market, coupled with her personal touch, helps her to stand out in her chosen field of real estate.
“They say if you love your job you will never work a day in your life. I absolutely LOVE what I do and am so very blessed to be able to work for and with such an amazing team of stellar professionals.”
When the market was at its worst, Goulston witnessed the devastation and the effects that it had on her community. School budgets were being cut, especially in the arts. She decided to offer up a solution rather than wait for the problem to be resolved on its own. Goulston founded Imagine, a 501(c)(3) Nevada nonprofit six years ago and to date has raised over $100,000 earmarked for new instruments for several public schools in Clark County. Goulston is also active with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She continues to inspire those in her industry as well as her community.Shapiro & Sher Group
