My wife Jessica and I would highly recommend Modern Market Realtors. Shannon was our agent and she went above and beyond to insure that we made the right decision. This was our first house and Shannon's knowledge of the market combined with the use of a personalized listing system insured that we only looked at homes that met our required criteria as well as only homes that with Shannon's experience would interest us. She picked up on the small comments we made walking thru homes and used those to narrow our search. Even after the purchase we had several questions and she was always there with an answer or would work to find one. We now live in our dream home, and when our dream needs to expand you can bet that Shannon and the Modern Market team will be there to see us through it. Sincerely Chad and Jessica Volk Less ... More

When mother and I started looking at open houses were just went to look at these homes and were going to wait to get serious about finding a realtor and finding a home till a few months later since couldn't move till end of year but when going to one of Shannon's open houses we took a business card or flyer and a few days later decided to use Shannon as our realtor. Shannon sat down with us wanted to know what we were looking for and started to look immediately. Shannon wasn't ever pushy or ever felt rushed, she was very patient and gave opinions or adviced when asked questions and was honest. Shannon was very patient taking time to explain things I didn?t understand throughout the entire process of looking for a home and when finding the home to purchase. When I had any questions regarding the house or other items she got the answers to the questions. She went above and beyond any other realtor that I have had or heard of. Example when we had to post pone our closing date, she found out the issues of postponing and took action getting professionals out to the property immediately. Shannon was very flexible, when mom and I wanted to get into the house to take measurements she was able to get us in and if she wan't available she had Jim Christli come to assist us. Also when needing signatures for certain forms she has this system where we don't need to meet in person, I could have it done online, which this makes it nice (very time saving). Shannon & Jim was very easy to work with and fun. Even after closing and moved in the house she will take the time to answer further questions. She?s just not only a realtor she becomes your friend or family that she is looking out for the best of you. I would recommend Shannon to anyone as a realtor who wants great service and someone who goes above and beyond your expectations. As a first time home buyer I was skeptical of realtors from previous experience but going through Shannon has been the best and smooth experience I ever could have hoped for. I am so glad that we went through Shannon to find our new home which we enjoy every day. Less ... More

I contacted Shannon when my wife and I decided to purchase a lot in Fargo. I wasn't going to use a realtor...thankfully I did, she found out that the lot next to me was going to be a pump station. So we found a different lot, thanks to her I didn't loose any property value with that think next to me.

Shannon & Jim have been my agents through multiple transactions. I've worked with many agents over the years and none even come close to compare to the "Top Notch" service I've received time and time again from them. I appreciate the speed in which they respond. I highly value their knowledge, expertise, and advice, just to name a few. They have a well-versed knowledge of the entire Fargo Moorhead Area. They go over and above the norm especially when listing a home, they know what works and how to get it sold with ease. Anyone who gets lucky to enough to find them will never need another agent again, I know I wont. Less ... More

I was in the process of buying my first home and was working with a different realtor for the first few months of looking. The realtor that I was working with at the time I thought was a very good one until about the third or fouth house we looked at. I dont think she had the patience for my wife and I. Shannon and Jim took the time to look around the FM area through smaller towns and even drove 30 miles away to look at a few houses that they probably knew we wouldnt like. When we would look through some of the houses that we picked out, Jim was very honest on his opinion on the house and seemed like he wasnt just out for the sell, but was out for the buyers best interest. I felt very comfortable working with both of them through the process of looking and the process of closing. They have a very good online system that works great narrowing down what you want out of a house, price range and area that you want to live in. I would recommend Jim and Shannon with Modern Market Realtors to everybody. I enjoyed my experience and found the home I was looking for. Less ... More

Shannon was excellant. She made the selling of our old home and the purchase of our new home a breeze. She was very knowledgable about every step in the process. She knew the market and priced our home right to sell quickly. We couldn't have been more please and she will definately be our agent next time! Highly recommended!

Shannon was very patient with us as our decision process was lengthy. We changed direction a couple of times and she was very flexible. She is extremely knowledgeable and was quick to response to all our requests and questions. Plus she contributed many great ideas of her own. Not only would I consider her a top notch real estate professional, she is great to work with because she has such an upbeat attitude and winning personality. I truly enjoyed working with her.

Absolutely wonderful. Professional, extremely knowledgeable in her field as well as the area--but always accessible. Worked her tail off to get us our home within a very short time frame. Very happy with Shannon and our home. Perfect! A BIG thumbs up and would highly recommend to anyone seeking a great real estate professional.

Shannon worked hard to show us numerous listings. We knew what we wanted but were just not finding it. Shannon was willing to set up many showings with houses I found searching the web. She even carried through once the closing was done. We had some problems in the house that showed up the first day in. She worked with us to get the issues resolved with the sellers. I continue to call her if I need a name for a great plumber, electrician etc. She really knows the area, the schools, the market. She always returned our calls in a timely manner. You can't go wrong in working with Shannon. She is ethical, creative, honest and smart. Less ... More

Shannon was very helpful in finding me and my wife our first home. Very knowledgeable about the process and the surrounding area. She made this somewhat stressful situation fairly calming.

Top of the line agent. Efficient and effective for both me as a buyer and a seller. Scheduled visits that emphasized strengths of the two properties I sold through her and was a good negotiator for me a purchaser.
