As a queer person, it was important that I work with people who would treat me respectfully. The entire team did so. There were no intrusive questions and no awkwardness. The entire team is great. I would recommend working with this team, either when selling or buying.

It was super important to my partner and I to go through a realty company that was LGBTQ+ friendly. When we first met with Claire and Shannon at The Plourde Team, we were sold off the bat! Throughout our home buying process, Claire was incredibly communicative and knowledgeable every step of the way! Super dedicated to helping us find the perfect home and was always one step ahead of the game. It was such a smooth process across the board! Thank you all so much and shoutout to Molly for all of the updates throughout the offer process! Claire will be on speed dial for any future home needs.

Jennifer and Shannon are awesome!! Kind, caring and always looking out for their client's best interest. Love them!!

Heather M - Burnsville, MN: 2023-06-13

The entire Plourde team is absolutely amazing. I originally spoke with Shannon who immediately understood my concerns about moving to a new state and how to make it happen, especially since I wanted to make sure I was moving into a community that was accepting of the gay community. She put my soul at ease and set me up with Claire, who I cannot speak highly enough about. Moving halfway across the country is no easy feat and Claire was responsive, supportive, and was able to ease my anxiety every step of the way. Her sense of humor was great, and she quickly got an idea for the type of homes that fit my style so she was able to help me weed out the areas that didn’t fit my “vibe” between each visit to MN. Her expertise guided me through every step of the procedure to where I felt confident in my process. Even after the move, Claire and the entire Plourde team has been communicative and resourceful, making sure all my needs were met in this process. Molly was a fantastic communicator throughout the process and I loved getting her updates of where we were during the entire buying process. When it comes to needing a realty team in my future, I will definitely work with them again. I cannot recommend enough.

Heather did a fantastic job with helping us find our first home. Her expertise of the Twin Cities area (we looked mainly in NE MPLS and Western Suburbs) was phenomenal and she was very careful to examine crucial parts of each home we were interested in to ensure they were in good shape. We live out of state and she saw a couple dozen houses for us via FaceTime and videos while we were gone. We trusted her judgment as she proved to be incredibly knowledgeable and out for our best interest. She was very involved in the negotiating and closing process and helped us each step along the way. We talked with her more than once a week for several months and she is incredibly responsive. She was an absolute joy to work with and we cannot recommend her and her team enough! As an LGBTQ+ couple, we felt incredibly comfortable working with Heather and her team.

Naomi L - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-09

Working with Shannon Plourde on both the sale and purchase of our homes was truly an exceptional experience. Her knowledge, responsiveness and guidance was spot on throughout the process. I have and will continue to recommend her and team with absolutely no reservations! Great realtor!

Brynn R - Roseville, MN: 2023-03-09

Working with Shannon and Jennifer to sell my home of 25 years was a great experience! They are very responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with as was their assistant. I really appreciated their referrals for services that I needed and their understanding of my needs. I look forward to working with them to buy my next home as well!

Matt M - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-09

We have been very pleased working with Shannon. She was always available, on time, and had excellent resources and recommendations. Both Shannon and Jennifer, projected a sense of honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness. We would recommend them highly to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home.

Joe A - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-09

Just outstanding. She is not only fun and encouraging... she never misses a detail. The market was very hot and hard to find a home for most but Shannon found the home of our dreams very quickly.

Libby G - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-09

Shannon helped us buy our first house and she was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the area and the buying process. Took us through step-by-step. Her office also has a great office manager, who kept organized and on top of things after our offer was accepted. We would certainly work with them again in the future.

Mary B - Richfield, MN: 2023-03-09

Shannon prepared us well for our inspection, and what to expect in the sales process. She knows how to price a property and we were under agreement within 24 hrs. We highly recommend the Plourde team!

Garrett F - Minneapolis, Minnesota: 2023-03-08

Claire was fantastic to work with and was THE DIFFERENCE why we beat out 11 other offers on the first home we made an offer on and getting it due to her great advice on how to structure our offer. Had we structured it the way we initially wanted to we would have missed out! Throughout the process she was super responsive, thoughtful, on time, professional, and friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Twin Cities.

Lizzie B - St. Paul, Minnesota: 2023-03-08

Shannon and Molly were incredible communicators and held our hands through a difficult sale. They went above and beyond to make sure we were able to navigate the process even with a last minute emergency after close of business on a Friday. Can't recommend them enough!

Alex L - Minneapolis, Minnesota: 2023-03-08

Claire Gale is a rock star realtor. She was patient, diligent, and took time to understand exactly what I was looking for in a new home. Claire and the Plourde team made the process from offer to closing on my new home a seamless, and their wealth of resources come in handy, especially for first time home buyers. I highly recommend working with Claire Gale for your home buying or selling needs!

Julie Y - Eagan, MN: 2023-03-08

Shannon is personable, has loads of experience, very wise in her field, and good at negotiating. I have used her on two different moves. I trust her completely.

Anna B - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-08

I am super excited about The Plourde Team! Between these fabulous professionals they have all the points of a great real estate experience covered, and then some! They are knowledgable, patient, understanding, honest, detailed oriented, committed and motivated. Their years of combined experience is beyond compare.

Dean B - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-08

We have worked with Shannon to purchase two homes and sell one. Our first home in Richfield and our second in Minneapolis. Shannon is very professional and cares about your needs. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to work with a motivated, hard working agent.

Christine W - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-08

I have worked with The Plourde Team on the purchase and selling of several houses over the years, and each time, they outdo themselves. Their professionalism, kindness, and expertise shine throughout their entire team. Even in a very difficult market, they keep your spirits up and work hard day in and day out. Thank you for all you do!

Marie P - Minneapolis, MN: 2023-03-08

Shannon's team worked with us on selling our single family home and buying a condo. She has an amazing team that helped us with all aspects of the process, from prepping the house for sale to guiding us in the closing process for both properties. She is supportive and communicated with us through every step of the process. Her team are masterful at the sales/buying process!

Jennifer T - Minneapolis, Minnesota: 2023-03-08

My experience working with Heather was exceptional! She went above and beyond to help me evaluate potential homes and thoroughly explain every step of the process. Heather was incredibly responsive and attentive and knew exactly what information and guidance I needed to make an informed decision. Heather’s expertise helped me win my first offer in a very competitive market. The entire process went smoothly from start to finish and I couldn’t be happier with my new home. I highly recommend Heather and the Plourde Team. Thank you, Heather!

Tamar G - Minneapolis, Minnesota: 2023-03-07

Working with the Plourde team was life changing for me and for us as a couple. Shannon, Claire and Jen, all of them walked us through and supported us through every stage of the home buying process. They were so empowering and really got to know us as individuals and helped us to take the leap and in a crazy market, they helped us to make our offer that was accepted on our first try on a home a piece of land that we love so much. The integrity of each person on the team and their ethics and expertise felt unique. I knew that each of them would go to bat for us and were and are so invested in us. And they helped us to show up where we needed it. Pushed us in the best way when we needed it. When we hired the team we could feel that they would each stay in the process with us and hold steady if and when we wavered. We grew so much through going through the home buying process with the entire team. We felt so cared for and the entire team will always have a place in our lives and our home. We are so thankful. They bring something so unique and special. I know that the whole team brings this level of care and attention to all the folks they work with. I joked when we hired them that we needed a team that could be our midwives and hold steady with us through the birth process of home buying. And they did in so many levels. They are so special and they saw the specialness in us. Happy home buying or selling!

Sarah S - Minneapolis, Minnesota: 2023-03-07

Heather and Molly with the Plourde team made our home buying experience smoother and easier than we could have hoped for. The first time we purchased a home (through a different realtor) we ran into issue after issue. With Heather and the team, we had a marvelous experience that I wish we had had the first time around. I will always recommend the Plourde team to anyone looking to purchase in the Minneapolis area!

John P - Minneapolis, Minnesota: 2023-03-07

We sold our single family home and bought a condo. Shannon's team guided us through the entire process for both properties. She is responsive, supportive and has vast expertise. Her team provided guidance and service through every step of the process. They are great!

Dale B - Minneapolis, Minnesota: 2023-02-19

I'm nonbinary and wanted to work with a realtor that was in tune with the LGBTQ+ community. We worked with Claire, and she was fantastic! We were new to the twin cities and knew next to nothing about neighborhoods. She was a great resource and helped us narrow our search based on what was important to us and what was in our price range. We ended up buying a house off-market that is perfect for us and in our dream location. We couldn't be happier. Since buying the house, Claire has also answered so many questions for us. We feel so lucky that we found the Plourde group.

Katie N - Chanhassen, MN: 2023-02-04

Working with the Plourde team was the best decision we made during our selling/purchasing journey. We chose them because of their stellar reputation with their clients but we also wanted someone who understood our unique family needs. Their team really took the time to get to know us on a personal level and made sure they understand our needs during the entire process. They were patient as these needs shifted along the way and were willing to dedicate their time to helping us find exactly what we needed. Every interaction we had with the members of their team was beyond fantastic. They went to bat for us in a tough market and we had full trust in them representing our best interest. You would be hard-pressed to find a better team to represent you when buying or selling a home.
