Shannon Portnyagin has been a REALTOR® with Sotheby's International Realty since 2016. She has a true passion for matching clients and properties while being an excellent real estate professional throughout the process. Her clients have appreciated her superior customer service, ability to negotiate on their behalf in a competitive market, and exceptional communication at every step in their journey.
With dual degrees in Marketing and International Business from the University of Maryland Smith School of Business, Shannon is uniquely positioned to take a client's listing to its full potential. After graduating from college, Shannon moved to New York City and worked in Global Product Marketing at MAC Cosmetics, where she learned the value of effective branding in every step of selling a product. From there, she moved with her husband Dmitriy to San Diego where he launched his career in the tech industry while Shannon founded a fashion e-commerce website. As an entrepreneur, Shannon learned invaluable skills in communication and relationship-building.
With a background in painting and selling fine art in her time as marketing director of a gallery in the Washington, D.C. area, Shannon has a keen eye and sense of what makes something 'unique.' She applies this passion and understanding to assisting her real estate clients.
Shannon resides in a historic landmark home in Old Town Lewisville with her young family, poodles, and cat. She enjoys being an active supporter of her community, following Dallas sports (go Stars!), leading a local Girl Scouts troop, and getting outdoors. She is based out of The North office in Plano and is happy to share why this region is so special with you over a cup of coffee or a phone call!
