Great experience from day 1Mark did a fantastic job as our agent from the first day. He thoroughly explained his approach to selling property at our first meeting, and after we selected Mark as our realtor, he proposed a plan that kept us on track while we prepared our house for market though the close of escrow. He kept in constant communication, was never rushed, and always happy to answer questions. I particularly appreciated that he would make recommendations, but would make it clear he was open for hearing our thoughts and that the final decisions typically were ours to make. We normally accepted Mark's recommendations because they were based on his experiences and knowledge of real estate and the market, and they just made sense. We fortunately had resources to fix the house up while preparing for market, and Mark provided very valuable guidance on what repairs or upgrades to make that would provide a return on investment. He pretty much nailed an appropriate asking price for our home, and it was sold in less than 1 week on the market. He also makes what could be a stressful and unpleasant experience fun. Happy to recommend Mark for your real estate needs!
The best realtorWe met Mark at an open house and we knew right away that he was the right agent for us. We told him we were just looking but not sure what we want. He asked our approximate budget and the location we want. To save our time, he prepared a list of houses to visit to help us see what were available in the market within our budget. He even took us back and forth to our first two (2) choices to help us decide which we really wanted. He gave us his professional insight and guided us to find the “Perfect Home” for us. Mark was very attentive and responsive, quickly answered any questions we had. He has a very strong knowledge and experience he used to help us efficiently and effectively negotiate with the seller, and guided us through the entire process. Mark helped in removing the stress in finding and buying our new home during the pandemic! He truly stands out from the crowd in looking out for us. We highly recommend Mark for your real estate needs, the best real estate agent there is!
Perfect endingWe decided to sell right at the start of a worldwide pandemic. Mark marketed house perfectly but more importantly when things got rough with Covid and a tricky contingency Mark hung in and knew exactly our best moves to finalize the sell. Most realtors are good at helping stage a house but when the going gets tough as can happen, you need a bright and seasoned agent who knows how to handle any difficulty. Mark is that person.
Respectful, competent support for a new home buyerAs first time home buyers we had a seemingly endless number of questions and concerns during this process. What should we do here? What's appropriate there? Are we supposed to do this? Mark was our compass, and for every question we asked he either had an answer right away, found us someone who did, or oftentimes asked us a series of questions to clarify what we were really looking for. All the while we never felt pressured - only supported and informed. At the start of this process people expressed to me how stressful this experience would be - and I believed them - however, for us it was a genuine pleasure and I can't help but give Mark and his team a lot of credit for that. Thank you, Mark!
Not your usual pandemic purchase—instead, an exceptional oneMark was referred to us by a trusted agent who knew what we required: impeccable service, follow-up and communication on a proactive basis, and radical candor with transparency. Mark provided all of this and more. From ensuring that we really wanted to submit an offer (in the middle of a global pandemic), to shepherding us through the evaluation (when we were 4 hours away), to ensuring negotiations were fair (to ensure we got the home but did not overpay), Mark was there every step of the way. Mark spent the right amount of time upfront to know what was important to us and never once questioned our judgement—instead, trusting our judgement and asking us questions to help him provide better guidance to our questions when asked. Being careful to never give "his opinion", he instead gave us the "market opinion" and helped us gut check our decisions with a neutral lens, being very careful to not push us in either way. This is our preferred way of working and Mark met us there. I try to always give feedback on what to improve when leaving a survey, and during a pandemic, fires, and everything else in the world, there is honestly nothing I can say to give Mark feedback to improve as he was already there.
Professional With Strong CommunicationI have worked with Mark in the past when finding a home and wanted to work with him again because he was incredible in the home purchase process. He was professional with strong communication and keeps his client’s best interests foremost. Mark is the greatest!
Mark is an absolute professionalWe signed in at an open house that he hosted, and he called us a few hours later. We had very little knowledge since we’re first time buyers and Mark to time to walk us through the process of home buying, learn about what we were looking for and remained patient with us throughout our search and purchase.
OutstandingOutstanding in all aspects!
