    Linda and Kevin are incredible to work with! They are consummate professionals and are incredibly knowledgeable - providing the expertise we needed every step of the home buying process. We loved working with them 10 years ago and again this fall, and couldn't recommend them more highly!

    Sandy gave Linda 5 stars out of 5
    We were pretty entrenched in our starter home(46 years!), so when we agreed to see if there was a home with some things on our wish list, we turned to Linda and Kevin Sharkey. Their knowledge of the metro area real estate market and attention to detail were key in making the decision to sell our home and purchase a new one. From the first questions of why do you want to move and what are you looking for in your next home, they took us on a whirlwind of a few short weeks of buying, prepping, selling and moving. They listened, made suggestions, gave us a reality check when needed, and negotiated on our behalf. Their team approach brought in a staging expert and photographer, and our home sold within a day. In what can be a daunting experience, we treasured their knowledge and expertise, and had fun along the way.

    Linda and her husband, Kevin, were absolutely wonderful. Other realtors had difficulty working with our schedules and would get frustrated with us due to our lack of knowledge about the State or area. Not once did I ever feel as if I was a burden to Linda or Kevin because they were available whenever we needed them, they were patient with us as we looked at houses, and offered the best advice on making offers for houses. Professionally, the two of them worked hard on our behalf to make sure the inspection, financing, and minute details were all taken care of. Personally, the two of them are knowledgeable about the area and market, do everything they can to make you feel comfortable, and make you feel like a good friend. My wife and I cant say enough good things about these guys. They are the best. I'm hoping I never have to move again, but if I have to buy or sell anything in this area ever again, I know who I would want to handle it and I'd recommend to everyone else to use their services. You wont regret it.

    We had a wonderful experience working with Linda and Kevin in the purchase of our home in Minneapolis. We were newer to the area and to purchasing an older home. They were very knowledgeable, incredibly responsive, and took care of everything - even issues we could have been expected to resolve ourselves! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy in the area.

    5 stars are too few! I have loved working with Linda!! Moving can be stressful, so having the right advocate in your corner is key. I was extremely fortunate to have Linda's assistance and support not once, but twice in the last 6 years. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, and a wonderful communicator. Any question I had, she had or found the answer as quickly as possible. I trusted her expertise and found homes that were exactly what I was looking for. Time and again, Linda has gone above and beyond for me... proving that I'm not just a client or dollar signs, but someone that is seen, heard, and valued as a person. I'd highly recommend Linda to my family, friends, and anyone who is looking for a dedicated professional with heart.

    I've been living in my first house for 3 months thanks to Linda and Kevin. The entire process was made new for me, but I had The Sharkey team to guide me through the entire journey. I was very happy with how Linda and Kevin were privy to and able to properly identify terms of our offer that would represent me as the strongest buyer. After we had an accepted offer Linda was just as attentive and responsive to all my questions, and coordination. If I had a question or needed details about a part of the process, I would get an acknowledgement immediately, and a detailed response in an incredibly reasonable amount of time. As a first time home buyer The Sharkey team was the very best resource I could have had. I know with certainty that it was Linda and Kevin's skill set that landed me with the exact wanted I wanted. I had an awesome experience and couldn't be happier.

    Linda was fantastic to work with. The Sharkey team was thoughtful in their approach and helped us price our home just right, stage it to sell, and handled all of the logistics flawlessly.

    Linda helped me sell my first home and made the seemingly complicated process of prepping and selling the house extremely easy. I could rely on her advice on everything from pricing the home competitively to explaining and negotiating the offers on the table. Linda arranged a stager to help us make our home ready for showings, and even assisted us on closing day when we couldn't be present. She's extremely responsive and easy to communicate with, even when I was bombarding her with questions :) On top of it all, Linda is kind, compassionate and understanding about the emotional process of selling a home. I would partner with Linda over and over again!

    This is the second time we have used Linda in our real estate transaction. From start to finish, we received guidance, reassurance and friendly professionalism. Linda has an the wonderful ability to answer questions that we have before we even know that we have them. She was helpful every step of the way with attention to details like providing staging services and professional photography of the property, to reminding us about important details like scheduling TISH, and setting up mobile showing reminders. As a first time home seller, we couldn't be more satisfied with the service she provided. We plan to use Linda again when the opportunity arises.

    We recently had the privilege of working with Linda and Kevin to sell our home. After raising our family in a home that we loved and in a community that we loved, we knew it would be an emotional journey for us to relocate. Both Linda and Kevin were amazing to work with, and they helped us to create more even positive memories as we started a new chapter in our lives. They were professional, knowledgeable, hard-working, efficient, and friendly. I also appreciated their excellent communication with us throughout the process. It was a joy to work with them!

    We could NOT have sold our home without Kevin and Linda! They walked us through every step, as we were first time home sellers! Their knowledge, experience, professionalism, kindness and empathy were truly amazing! We will be forever grateful for them working as a team on our behalf! I would highly recommend them to anyone that is selling or buying a home!

    Linda and Kevin are a great team to work with. If one of them wasn't available, the other was there to help. Our emails and texts were responded to with lightning speed! They kept us on track with every detail, and were often one step ahead to ensure nothing fell through the cracks. We really appreciated their knowledge, flexibility and professionalism.

    Kevin and Linda Sharkey did an excellent job for me with selling my condo. The first agent I had and I did not work well together so when I called Kevin, he was more than happy to help. Kevin and Linda helped me stage my place and did beautiful pictures and flyers that were professionally done. I think that is what helped sell my condo. Both are very easy to work with, listen to your point of view, and handle all the necessary details in a timely manner. Would definitely work with them again!

    Linda and her husband Kevin are awesome real estate agents. They were with me for every step of selling my home and finding a new one. This process can be very nerve-wracking, frustrating, joyful and exhausting all at the same time, but Kevin and Linda were there to eliminate all of my worries. Thanks.

    My husband and I were not looking to move but found a house we loved, which is how we met Linda and Kevin, and we could not be happier with the service they both provided. Linda and Kevin are easy-going, down to earth, professional, and very trustworthy. The minute we met them, we felt at ease and knew we were in good hands. Since we were not truly 'in the market' to buy/sell a home, we were a bit behind from the beginning but they made the process so easy and seamless. We truly cannot explain how thankful we are for all their help through our home buying/selling process and would recommend them in a heartbeat!!

    Wow, what can we say but 'thank goodness we had Linda!' From our very first meeting, Linda (and partner-in-crime, Kevin) helped us feel comfortable and confident in the process; a feat in itself as we were first-time home buyers in 'a super hot market.' Their expertise was on display throughout the process, from the attention to detail shown in walking through potential homes to the management of multiple parties involved on signing day. This professionalism paired with the incredibly friendly and outgoing (and hilarious) personalities that came with it made this a GREAT experience. Any home buyer (or seller) should be so lucky to get to work with these two!
