“If you're looking the best, the Korby Team at Keller Williams will not disappoint! We trusted them to sell our house and could not be happier. The sales process was thoroughly explained, every decision was met with sound advice, and every need was addressed with a timely response. My one regret was moving out of state so they could not help us with our next purchase. Top notch crew!”

They immediately got back to us on any questions we had, made sure we were clear on all we should do, were eager and willing to go the extra mile to make sure we got anything we needed promptly, and worked with our schedule without any concerns.

“Shawn and his team are absolutely amazing!!! They helped us sell a townhouse that we had been renting for many years after trying unsuccessfully to sell it for almost a year back in 2008. With Shawn's excellent networking skills, we received an offer before it was even listed on the MLS. My husband and I really appreciated the expertise and helpfulness of Shawn and his entire team. They all were so quick to respond to any questions that we had and they provided timely communications to keep us to date on the process. I highly recommend them to anyone. They definitely rated 5 stars with regards to every aspect of our sale process.”

“We were so impressed with the Korby Team and their ability to both sell our home and find us a new one. We loved that they have a professional stager on their team to help us maximize our home. They were able to get us out of our old home and into our new home (which is exactly what we set out looking for!) exactly in the timeline we wanted. We had a fabulous experience and we know who to call if we ever move in the future.”

“My experience with Shawn Korbys' Team, was a 10 out of 5 stars!! I felt like they truly cared about my family and doing a great job, and not just the sale.  Shawn, and everyone on his team are very professional, and value honesty and organization.  Because of Shawn's expertise, we priced our home with a price we felt great about, and got our home sold in 3 days!!!  Only an expert can do that!  I would recommend the Korby Home Team to everyone I know!”

I would highly recommend anyone working with Shawn and his team. A special thanks to Travis Olson for his quick responses and helpfulness whenever needed. Selling a house can be daunting but with Korby's team I felt like I had the help and resources to make it much more painless.”

“Very Professional and always on top of everything. Working with Shawn and team was painless, despite all the work I had to do prior to listing our home. Having a stager on-site to review the home prior to listing was a huge help and a vote of confidence that our home would sell quickly - it did, the 1st day we listed!”

“Shawn Korby, Katy Korby, Travis Olson and the house stager, Sharon Brown, were very personable, efficient, and competent. Our mother was selling her home of 46 years and they respectfully presented information, reassured her, and generally made her feel good as she took every emotional step and made each business decision. We are most grateful and impressed with the Korby Team!”

“The Korby Home Team has been fabulous! From start to finish, I NEVER had to ask on the status of the house, the process, or see where we were at...they brought it all to me! Although I wanted the home to sell, I was sad to see it end as working with Shawn became like a friend/family. It was very nice to work with a group/Realtor that made me feel like THE priority for him (although I realize he has many clients, it never felt that way), and that he truly cared about me and valued my business. If anyone needs a Twin Cities Realtor----HERE Is your 'guy!' Thanks again Shawn and your Korby Home Team!!”

“I worked with Shawn’s team to sell my condo and purchase my first home. The experience was absolutely fantastic. Shawn is a very attentive and caring agent, as is everyone on their team. Shawn handled the selling of my condo and The Korby Home Team handled the purchase of my home. I can not say enough how wonderful both experiences have been. They answered every question I had, walked me through the closing process step by step for both buying and selling and were an absolute pleasure to work with. I was very impressed by the level of organization in all of their processes and how seamlessly both of my closings went. I will be working with this team again as well as recommending them to friends and family anytime I get a chance. My experience with the Korby home team has blown all previous real estate experiences out of the water. If you’re looking for a real estate agent and team that is knowledgeable, personable, and goes above and beyond in every way, I recommend the Korby Home team.”

“Incredible Realtors. He helped me navigate the complicated process of closing a 4-plex with extensive property repairs built into the mortgage. Without his help, council, negotiations, and behind the scenes work I would not be a property owner today. I plan to work with Ryan to purchase other properties in the Minneapolis area because of his dedication, professionalism and the trust he has built with me. It would be my pleasure to speak with you if you would like to hear about my experience working with the Korby Home Team.”

“Shawn and his team are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and tireless. They helped us the entire way. The way the ball bounced for us is that we made 3 significant inquiries and offers. For each time we unintentionally became emotionally invested as the buyer, they provided empathetic, sane and honest wisdom and information. It is probably true almost any Realtor could have helped us buy a any house. But it was Shawn and his team that helped us identify and buy the best home possible. We could not have gotten this one without them.”

“I love this company....I actually love the team, they are great!

I have worked with Shawn on more than one transaction. He truly had my best interests at heart. He is a very thoughtful man, and if you spend 5 minutes you will know it too. I can not say enough about Shawn's integrity, he is a great guy.

I also worked with Lisa- who is equally qualified! Fun, and honest.......great to have working for you.

Their office team is top notch as well. Take their advice on loan officers- Kathy Lawler is the bomb.com! She moves mountains to get your loan done........and then close with Stewart Title- Denise is wonderful! She makes sure you understand that mountain of paperwork!

I feel like part of the family- they don't forget you after the sale....they keep in touch! I wish them continued success.”

“Shawn showed us several houses and helped us purchase a great house in the west metro. He was knowledgeable about the home buying process and accommodated every one of our requests to see a listed home. The market was moving pretty fast when we bought, and Shawn's punctuality and responsiveness allowed us to see properties very soon after they were listed. A+ for Shawn Korby and his team.”

Wyoming, MN

“5 stars for all sorts of services...Shawn Korby helped us look for and find our first home. Shawn was knowledgeable about the areas that we were looking and because he was a appraiser he really knew where there was value and how to add more. He was very responsive even late into the night and would text or email us right away when we had questions (and we had a lot of questions). We had a difficult seller who was not very communicative and  Korby continued to press and work to get us into our home. After we closed I had a group of friends over to help clean and Shawn brought over pizzas for the group to share!

I really loved working with this team. I would recommend them to anyone. I came to feel as if we had a good friend on our side throughout the whole process.”

“I just had my three year anniversary of Shawn Korby finding my home for me. How do I know? Because I got a very friendly card in the mail thanking me for using him as my Realtor. That is the attention to detail and customer service I received when looking for a home. Shawn was thorough, very well informed, friendly, persistent, professional, and patient. I would highly recommend using him and will again if I ever move again. I always refer anyone I know who is looking to move and all of them have thanked me for telling them about Shawn. Whether buying or selling, the Korby team gets a top rating from me!”
