Shawn sold our Florida home after moving to the Midwest. We thought the process would be difficult from afar, but Shawn took care of everything in a very professional, efficient, and speedy manner! He always kept us informed along the way and any stumbling blocks we ran into, he was quick to take care of! Shawn came highly recommended and we would pass along that recommendation to family/friends!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Lakeland, FL.

My husband and I used Shawn in our hunt for our first home. The journey to finally signing closing papers was a long one, but he never lost hope (even when we almost did)! Thanks again for helping us find and finally secure our forever home. We plan to refer you to everyone we know!

Shawn was professional and helpful in our search to find our dream home. He made a point to find out what was really important to us in a home. We are so happy with the home he found and we are so happy that he helped us in our search for the perfect place to live.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Lakeland, FL.

We used Shawn as buyers to find a newer home in Lakeland. The first thing that was impressive was his knowledge of all the neighborhoods we were interested in. He gave his professional opinion of each neighborhood including how the resale might be down the road when we might want to sell the house. In might not be what you want to hear, but he was spot on when we researched online. Shawn was responsive in taking time to show us several homes. In our case we took our time over several months until we found the "best fit". It was awesome to know that Shawn had knowledge of the home builders in the Lakeland area. He even had the cell number of the builder of the house we decided upon. Once we decided to make an offer, Shawn was very helpful in guiding us through all the processes involved in purchasing the house. He assisted us in negotiating a good price and had good recommendations for financing, inspectors, etc. Shawn is a great guy to work with and my wife and I highly recommend using him!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $650K in Lake Hollingsworth, Lakeland, FL.

Shawn went over and above what we could've asked for in a realtor! We wanted to be in a specific area within our community and he looked at every possible option for us, until we found The perfect home for our family. He knows his stuff and has an unbelievable work ethic. I would definitely recommend him to everyone!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Lakeland, FL.

When we were getting close to retirement and relocation to Asheville, NC we started discussing how best to sell our Lakeland home. My husband favored the "for sale by owner" method, but I favored having a realtor. I got Shawn's name as the husband of a work colleague. We set up a meeting and we were impressed. Shawn was very knowledgeable and personable. He explained the procedure we would be undertaking...and gave advice...but he was never pushy or high pressure. During the months when we were going back and forth to NC, he kept us up on all showings. There was never a time that we felt he wasn't doing his best to sell our house, even during the slower holiday season. Once we moved our furnishings out of the house, he created "virtual furniture" on the website to make our empty house look very warm and inviting. We give Shawn 5 Stars for all categories and would highly recommend him to others.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Tarpon Springs, FL.

My husband and I worked with Mr. McDonald to purchase a house in Florida from our location in Virginia. Shawn was very professional, personable and accommodating to our needs. He was quick to respond to any inquiries and was on point when the time came to make an offer which was a competitive bid situation. We traveled south a couple of times but could not come down for any real length of time. To compensate, Shawn would video tape our top choices which assisted greatly in our decision making. We trusted him to the point that we made an offer on our current house without having ever set foot in it. We highly recommend Shawn for your real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Lake Watkins, Lakeland, FL.

Shawn was a pleasure to work with. He actually sold us the house originally several years ago. The experience went so well that we listed the home with him to sell it when we were ready to downsize. We were paying two mortgages at the time. He worked very hard to bring in potential buyers. Our home sold very quickly. I would highly recommend Shawn as a realtor. He is honest and works diligently to either help you find the right house or assist you in selling your home.

We certainly would recommend Shawn to those looking for a new home. Once contacted, he got back to us right away and kept us posted on each new home that might interest us. We appreciated that he was a Christian and dealt with us in an honest way. It was a good experience overall.
