Client Testimonials


arden-hillsShawn and the Hartmann Team did a great job. They sold our house! Shawn’s knowledge of comparable sale prices in the market allowed him to accurately estimate the value of our home. The listing price Shawn recommended was close to the actual sale price, which helped capitalize on the initial wave of buyers to maximize the value and exposure of our house when it hit the market. We found each of Shawn’s team members to be strong in their respective roles, efficient and professional. We enjoyed working with Shawn and the Hartmann Team very much and we are happy with the results.

falconWe were moving to Colorado and needed to sell our home in Falcon Heights, MN. After reading reviews online we contacted Shawn Hartmann and his team. We were extremely impressed with Shawn and his entire team. Shawn is very experienced and knowledgable and made the listing process quick and easy and the photographer did a great job. Our house sold in 2 days for full price. I would strongly recommend the Hartmann Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

valentineShawn and his team went above and beyond in presenting, staging, and selling my home. He was the best agent I have ever known. I have purchased and sold three homes over the last 15 years. Shawn made the whole process so much easier than any other agent. I would highly recommend Shawn and his team.
-Linda C., Arden Hills



crismonShawn was wonderful to work with both selling our home and buying our new home! Shawn and his team went above and beyond all of my family’s expectations. Communication was the best I’ve ever had when buying and selling a home and I’ve done it multiple times. I highly recommend Shawn and his team I promise you will get great hands on service from start to finish. If I am ever in the market again to sell or buy, Shawn will be my first phone call. Thank you Shawn!
-Ryan S., Inver Grove Heights


comoOur family experienced a shift in jobs and needed to move to a more accessible location for work. We had never sold a home before and had a lot of questions and needed guidance! Shawn and his team were just what we needed. They were accessible, kind, professional, and clear. They have an enormous amount of resources (staging, marketing, pre-mls)! We sold our home in the pre-MLS process in a VERY short time. Shawn was excellent! We will use the Hartmann Team and will recommend them to everyone!

More Client Testimonials from the past 11 years…

I interviewed 5 agents before choosing Shawn Hartmann and The Hartmann Team to sell my house. I am 100% sure I made the right choice. Here are 3 reasons why:

1. Results. My home, which needed significant updates and repair, ended up selling for an amount and within a timeframe that I was very satisfied with. And this occurred during a very bad market for sellers (2008).

2. Leadership. Shawn H. and his team put in the hours and did a tremendous amount of work to first get the house ready, and then aggressively show it and market it. One of the many open houses they conducted ultimately led to finding the right buyer. I should mention that this house had been my parent’s and I live out of state. Since I couldn’t be there, Shawn H. directed traffic and put in the effort required. He oversaw the repairs and other home improvements, appropriately staged the house for photographs and showings, and did all kinds of other favors for me. He and his team were always responsive and timely, and schedules did not slip.

3. Knowledge. Shawn H. has a great deal of expertise in selling homes, and he especially understood the style of house and neighborhood. He had great ideas and gave me tips that I would have never thought of. We had numerous intelligent discussions about where and how to spend money to improve the house in order to speed up the sale and get the best overall net return. Each of his team members contributed in different ways according to their expertise. Everyone always incorporated my input too. Feedback from showings was at my finger tips and I was able to adjust my strategy along the way.

In summary Shawn Hartmann, and The Hartmann Team demonstrated to me that they are true to their word, and they get results by having great people and smart systems in place. I will recommend them to everyone. The other agents I had interviewed spent time pitching their agency’s credentials and their own personal successes, but they were not able to convince me that they understood my specific needs and objectives. Shawn sure proved that he did.

I’m a Realtor also. I did not get the house sold in 6 months, so I replaced myself. In the time I saved I made more money then I spent. This Team did what I wanted done- Very Professionally.

You went way above and beyond what I ever expected in an agent. You are top notch and I would be honored to recommend your team.

For the financial situation that I was facing (foreclosure), Shawn Hartmann and his Team made me feel very confident and comfortable with going forward with a short sale. All staff that I communicated with was always very responsive with the answer or stated that they would get the answer and get back to me, which they always did. Thanks to all for a job well done!

Our home was not an easy house to sell, but we never felt like other properties that were listed with them were more important. We always felt like we mattered! Shawn Hartmann was great – we’ll miss working with him.

I was very happy with my service at Keller Williams, especially my Realtor Joel Meidal. He went above and beyond to get me my dream house and walked me through all the steps. He still makes himself available if I have questions. THATS SERVICE!!

Alex and Marena A.

Shawn Hartmann and his team were professional and very helpful. His recommendations were on target. Even though the process took 18 months we were satisfied with Shawn H. A big “Thank You” to you all!

We would highly recommend the HartmannTeam to anyone buying or selling their home, especially in the Como Park neighborhood. We have worked with other wonderful realtors in the past, however, the HartmannTeam team exceeded even our highest hopes. Since this team specializes in Como Park, they really know a lot about the area and the properties.

We worked with Shawn Hartmann on selling our house, and with Ryan Radtke in purchasing our new home. Both Shawn and Ryan met our extremely high expectations. However, one of the strongest parts of the team process is all of the players involved. Travis Olson is available at a moment’s notice to help track down any possible detail. Deb Bastyr and the marketing and staging team are invaluable—they do all of the marketing hard work so you don’t have to. Our experience in closing with Denise Laynor at Gibraltar Title was unmatched; she drives for swift and complete results. Having this team working for you cannot be equalled with just one realtor–the team approach works, and does so quickly to deliver on results.

The communication that you will receive in working with this team will delight you. They send weekly trend reports so you can get the most up-to-date information. They are in frequent communication, letting you know of suggestions, activity, and all pertinent details. Any of the team members are available to assist on a moment’s notice.

With the team’s guidance and expertise, we were able to sell our small home in Como Park just 45 days (in an exceedingly terrible housing market) with multiple offers! We were very hands-on and aggressive in attempting to sell. We hadvery high expectations of what open houses should be, and how frequently to have them. Additionally, we had a very long list of “must haves” in our next home. We were able to see just the right number of homes, with a good variety of conditions that we required. We told the team of our high expectations on both the buy and the sell sides, and they met and exceeded them on all points.

If you have high expectations, know that you are working with the utmost professionals on the HartmannTeam. We will recommend them again and again for anyone!

We were in a tough spot and we needed a Realtor with knowledge, tenacity and compassion. The Hartmann Team was all those things to our family. We never questioned their efforts to help us sell our home. They kept us informed and we knew we could trust them to guide us through this changing real estate market. They went above and beyond our expectations. We are forever grateful!

Moving for the first time in 30 years, I was very nervous. You and Deb made me feel comfortable by explaining everything in way for me to easily understand. I hope I won’t be moving again anytime soon, but if I do, I feel much better knowing that you will be there.

Chris and I sat down to brainstorm “negatives” so we didn’t take the easy way out and give you all 10’s on your performance survey…but we couldn’t think of any, so all 10’s, that’s what you’re getting! Great Job, Shawn! We’d recommend you ANY day!

Shawn H. was able to sell our house fast and Ryan B. and Shawn K. had the patience to show us close to 40 homes in 6 months! We had a rollercoaster ride over the past 6+ months but wouldn’t have changed it because we are so thrilled with the end result. We love our NEW HOME!

Matt & Julie K.

I was really proud and very pleased we met our goal of selling our home in 3 days. We owe it to the strong marketing done by Deb and to Shawn Hartmann’s people skills that secured multiple offers through the open house.
