Collier, Lyn. Las Vegas Review Journal. “Longtime real estate Florence Shapiro agent dies after battle with cancer” (August 14, 2016).
The Las Vegas real estate community is mourning a Realtor hailed by many as one of the best in the field. Florence Kelly Shapiro, 72, lost her battle with cancer Aug. 9. She was at home with family when she died.
Fellow Realtors have long spoken of the French native as a “charming” woman with the highest ethics and integrity. During countless interviews with reporters from the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s real estate section, Realtors spoke of Shapiro with reverence.
Over nearly two decades, she helped build one of the leading luxury real estate teams in the state with Ivan Sher. This year, their company, Shapiro &Sher Group (well known for their YouTube videos of Las Vegas mansions) sold $242 million in Southern Nevada real estate and was the top team for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties.
