Shawn and his team were outstanding. Wonderful to work with and represented me well. The sale of my home was complex and rather lengthy. They kept me informed, encouraged me and did everything possible to sell my home.

Shawn was great to work with. He always looked out for our best interest. Was able to find a new house for us, and also sell our old house very quickly. He is very knowledgable with real estate, and was able to answer all our questions with great detail. He is also very personable, and clearly enjoys working with people! Overall a great experience!

Shawn Buryska and his team did an excellent job in helping us to sell our properties in Rochester, MN. He knows the market in the area very well and has an extensive network to find an appropriate buyer for the property. The communication with him and his whole team was very easy and responsive. We'll highly recommend him for both future buyers and sellers.

Shawn Buryska agreed to market the sale of my house after two unsuccessful attempts by other agents. My living and working hundreds of miles a way compounded my situation. Shawn knows the real estate business from start to finish. He is meticulous in his assessments and pays careful attention to details often overlooked by less experienced agents. Shawn is honest, reliable and tenacious. He is well connected within the Rochester, Minnesota community and surrounding area. He is well respected by area contractors and as a result, he was able to provide me ready access to the best of the best in terms of contractors who delivered high quality services at fair market prices. Shawn and his team were always accessible, friendly, responsible, and willing to help me during a very stressful time. Shawn encouraged me and provided me with good, solid advice throughout the entire process. He marketed my house using the latest in digital technology, provided timely and frequent feedback, and advertised my house in various print publications. As a result, he was able to sell my home and orchestrate the closing without any glitches. I highly recommend Shawn Buryska and his team if you need a trustworthy, savvy and professional real estate agency to sell your home. Thank you, Shawn! Less ... More

Shawn is a true professional and his team is competent and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone needing to sell a home. The marketing effort included frequent use of print media as well as on-line tour of pictures of the home.

Shawn Buryska never showed my property, not even once. He repeatedly asked me to show prospective buyers the property myself and had me meet with other realtors and their clients at my property. He told me, "I can't be running up there every time someone wants to look at the property". He had me unlock the door for a showing, despite there being a lockbox on the door. Afterwards I found out that the customer toured my house by themselves. I never felt that my interests were represented. I was repeatedly given inaccurate information by Shawn and his staff, whether by ignorance or deceit, I'm not sure. If I wanted information I had to call the office and then no one knew my name or anything about my property. Someone would have to get back to me later. This has been the worst business experience of my life. I cannot imagine how he could have made it any more unpleasant and stressful. I am completely disappointed. Less ... More

Don't bother going with another agent, Shawn is all you'll need. I chose Shawn when I found him listed on Dave Ramsey's Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) recommendations. He didn't just sell our house, he showed us how selling works. When our house sold in 1 month, 1 MONTH!!; he offered us an excellent recommendation of Adam Howell to be our buyers agent. If you thought that there really could only be one REALLY good worker as part of a real estate team, this is not the case with Shawn's team. They are ALL good, not just one, ALL of them are great.

Shawn Buryska and his team provided excellent service for us on our recent home sale. His team kept us informed and we felt included in the process. We felt that our comments and ideas were addressed and valued. We were thrilled with the aggressive marketing that led to a quick sale. We have had many real estate transactions and this one was by far the smoothest experience. Selling your home can be an emotionally draining experience but this recent sale was the least difficult in our many transactions. Less ... More

Shawn Buryska was honest, professional, kind, reassuring, and informative through every step of selling my home. He really knows the real estate market in Rochester in great detail, and helped me price my home fairly. He is very responsive, and explains everything so that making difficult decisions is quite easy. There were some bumps in the road with my buyer, but Shawn kept everything steady, advocating for me when that was needed, and brought the process to a successful closing. I'm grateful to him and would highly recommend him. I couldn't ask for anyone better. I had bought and sold another home with Shawn a number of years ago, and found the service to be the same. He has a great support staff, and everyone who works for him gets back to you immediately when you have questions. A great experience. Less ... More

Quickly and efficiently closed on my new house, thanks to Shawn. His breadth of knowledge and communication skills helped me go in to my first house buying experience with confidence. I also appreciate how easy his website made browsing all the listings. He certainly has my recommendation.

Update: After a couple key updates, we relisted our condo with Shawn and it sold in less than 3 months! Condos are a tough sell, especially in this market but Shawn and his team never gave up and advertised our property to no end. Can't wait to purchase with Shawn and confidently recommend him to all!

We were very pleased with Shawn and his team's efforts in helping us purchase our new house in April of 2012. Everyone was prompt in returning phone calls and emails. Shawn's knowledge of the local real estate market and his web portal helped us greatly with narrowing down our search and ultimately finding our new home. His professional guidance was right on point for what to expect in the purchasing process. Thank you Shawn!

We were very happy with using Shawn Buryska to sell our home, as well as purchasing a new one. His team was very professionally and helpful. We were able to get very close to our asking price in a relatively short time frame. He was also very available for showings when we were looking to purchase a new home after he sold ours.

When we decided to sell our home we picked Shawn because we had so often seen his name as a top lister and seller. 16 days after our house was listed we were in his office signing papers to sell our home and purchase another one that he had just listed. How could you ever beat that. He also has a very efficient team working with him. We highly recommend him.

Shawn Buryska helped us buy a house in NW Rochester in 2005. He also helped us sell our condo later that year. Shawn Buryska is the most knowledgeable person I know. His knowledge of the entire process of buying, selling, closing, household vendors, location, markets and home inspections is beyond belief. We can ask him anything and he knows a person that can help us with that issue. Even today we still call him for recommendations for roofers, builders, and other household vendors. We have recommended him to dozens of people and if or when we ever sell Shawn Buryska will be the first one we call. He is professional, friendly, and never gives up. Before buying our current home, I worked with him twice, looking for a smaller home, but never purchased because my situation changed. When we contacted him again, he did not hesitate to represent us. You will have no regrets working with Shawn Buryska. Less ... More

In looking for a realtor to sell the condo Shawn was the one we chose, he took time to meet with us, answered our questions and came prepared with detailed information about the property that we going to sell. His knowledge of the housing market is exceptional. He advised us to refurbish and gave us tips, his marketing was excellent as he markets in many different areas, with excellent details to the brochure. He stayed in touch and updated us on everything the minute it happened even the showings and the results of the showings. The experience with Shawn and his team was great it, couldn?t have been better! Shawn and his team are very knowledgeable, friendly, prompt and willing to help even after hours, seven days a week. If the need ever arises to sell or buy Shawn will definitely be the one that we would call on. Less ... More

Shawn did a fantastic job for us. He laid out a very clear plan from the start for how we were going to go about selling the house. He was goal-oriented and persistent. We asked him to bring us a buyer and he did it within 1 month despite it being a very difficult market. We enjoyed working with his whole team and they made the entire process easy and seamless. We would definitely highly recommend Shawn.

Over the past 25 years I have bought and sold numerous homes and commercial properties from several different realtors, and I can state with confidence that Shawn and his team are the best I have dealt with. He knows the market and what various properties should and will bring. He is efficient and personable, he doesn't leave any "loose ends" and delivers on what is promised. From my initial contact with Shawn to the first closing we had together I knew where I stood on the transaction, nothing was left to guess and everything was handled in a professional manor. Since that first transaction I have used Shawn several more times over the years and have had the same positive results. I highly recommend Shawn and his team. Less ... More

I previously had my home on the market with another agent for a full year, receiving no offers. It was a competitive market for townhomes in a "down" market, and while my home was very nice, it was not particularly unique. I decided to list with Shawn after he evaluated my property and circumstances (the day after I contacted him). He felt confident that we could sell. His approach was aggressive and straightforward, both of which I appreciate. Within 6 weeks, I had accepted a fair offer on the house! Shawn has a team of people working with him so as to ensure that all runs smoothly from listing to closing and beyond. For important matters, I heard directly from Shawn himself. He is easily accessible and reponsive. In fact, I often heard back from him at times I felt he shouldn't still be working! All in all, Shawn and his team provided a smooth, trustworthy, and quick home-selling experience. What a relief to have that process taken care of! I recommend him without reservation. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
We had a horrible experience with a different realtor so our outlook on the selling process was poor. Switching over to Shawn Buryska at Coldwell changed everything. We didn't end up finding a buyer, but Shawn was wonderful to work with. He's down to earth, yet very professional and GREAT at what he does. His team was always accessible and willing to offer advice and help. We will never list or buy from anyone else in Rochester! Thank you Shawn and your team.

Shawn was my listing agent for a 2009 and a 2011 sale. Both houses were listed and sold in less than 30 days. I feel that the price that I received was very good for the market conditions.

I have worked with several agents over the years. Shawn is "hands down" the best. He is very professional, honest and does things just how you want them done. It's not a job for him. He knows the market and enjoys what he does and you can tell when you work with him. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the area.
