Mark is awesome....from the moment we met him he showed interest, knowledge, expertise, and care for selling our home. He always answered his cell phone and responded immediately to my every whim. I was not an easy client as I had a not-so-great experience with another real estate broker. But Mark always made me feel important and came through on his every promise. And he sold our house within DAYS of listing it. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone wishing to buy or sell property. He is the absolute best. AND he has a nice sense of humor to top it off!zuser20140514114037531
Mark was honest!! Mark was referred to me after a bad experience with another realtor. From the first day, I saw that he was there to help me find a home that was right for me and not how much commission he could make from the sale. He was knowledgeable and available. He made me feel like I was his only client. Because of his negotiation skills and his responsiveness, I got my BEAUTIFUL house that many buyers were competing for. I give him 6 star.
PS.. He got a good sense of humor!Ms.veronie
