Jim and Shannon were awesome to work with. They answered all the questions I could throw at them and didn't dance around questions to avoid them like others were. I appreciated that Jim was able to give advice and suggestions based on the questions I asked. The process and paperwork were seamless and everything went through smoothly with the bank, paperwork and closing. I would Highly recommend them.

Shannon was amazing in our (long) search for the right home! She was very patient and determined to find a great fit for our family. When it was finally the right time to list our home and meet with a builder for a new one, Shannon was on top of every detail, helping us to feel comfortable and represented In the process. She did not miss a beat when answering questions and was very rapid in her responses. We came out of the process with not only a fantastic realtor, but a trusted friend!

Shannon and Jim are very knowledgeable and helpful regarding anything about the house buying/selling process. They referred me to an awesome banker that started the process and then they were always available to show us homes and answer ALL of our questions. They were able to find us the "perfect" home!! I am so happy and would recommend them to anyone that wants to know the best thing to do whether you are buying or selling. If they can't help you with something, then they will find someone that can! Less ... More

I chose a realtor by phone since I do not live in ND. I looked at ratings online for realtors in the Fargo area, since it seemed I would get a more professional realtor in a larger city and I suspected that our buyer would more likely come from Fargo/Moorehead area, rather than Valley City. Jim was the main one I spoke with. He was confident he could sell the house without teaming up with local Valley City realtor, so I hired him. He and Shannon do a lot of research and I believe the house was priced to sell, but not priced to give away. I'm not saying this will happen to you but we had only one looker, and soon we had a contract. I do know that we had tried to sell several years in a row before this and we had overpriced the home. Jim is a good communicator and kept in touch with me. I had to do everything by phone, repairs, cleaning, staging, lawn care, etc. He & Shannon helped where they could. It was a 45 min. drive from Fargo to Valley City. They knew how to facilitate things by using the internet. All the documents were taken care of on line. I was very happy with Jim and Shannon and I would recommend them. Less ... More

Jim and Shannon are some of the best people I have ever worked with! We worked with them to sell our house and find our home in the country that exceeded our expectations. During the whole process, they were continuously engaged with us and always willing to answer any questions or concerns that we had. If we ever decide to move again, I already know who I will be calling and would recommend them to anyone looking to sell/buy a new home as you will be in good hands!

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 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.

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.
