In the ever changing real estate market, it is essential to choose an educated guide who truly knows how to meet each client's unique circumstances. It is also critically important to understand the specific needs and wants of buyers and sellers, the nuances of market value, and the elements that impact real estate. While value calculation is essential, a real estate agent must also possess an array of skills far beyond general sales to best serve their clients. These additional skills include negotiating, marketing & advertising, and personalized customer service. Mark's embodiment of these skills combined with the numerous years of experience, integrity, and professionalism guarantee he will be you results-driven expert.
I love working with people, I love solving problems and I love helping my clients achieve their goals.
I live my life by a simple code, be honest, be fair and be sincere.
I have been in the real estate industry for over 18 years. As an appraiser I've personally appraised THOUSANDS of homes and reviewed countless purchase agreements. As an active appraiser for local and national banks and credit unions, I'm constantly involved in the marketplace. I bring a level of understanding and experience that many agents cannot provide.
I am always accessible to my clients, night and day, 7 days a week. I don't pass my clients off to assistants, transaction coordinators, team members or office staff.
For listings, I provide identical services as other agents but at a reduced commission below the typical 2.5%; this includes but is not limited to high quality photography & marketing materials, virtual tours and top notch service.
