- Mark and Jessica are wonderful people and such knowledgeable and responsible real estate agents. Mark was available to answer all our questions even during his vacation and he had really good strategies on how to time when to list, sell and buy and it all worked out as he planned. We didn’t have a lot of knowledge or information in the market until we met Mark but selling our home and buying our dream home were managed so smoothly without stress thanks to him. His research and experience really made the difference in his confidence in negotiations too. We appreciated how friendly he was so we felt like we were talking to a friend! Plus he was honest and transparent about everything so we trusted him fully for the whole experience. We truly felt that he cared about our family and our home as if his family was gonna live there. (His research on details on the property was astonishing) When we got the key to our dream home, they prepared us such a wonderful gift package too. We will recommend them to all our friends!!! Thank you Mark and Jessica! R+Y
- We don't have enough words to explain how positive our experience with Mark and his team was. We worked with him in three different transactions: - The sale of our townhome (listed four times in a really bad market): He never let us down, made every possible effort to support and encourage us, with his positivism, knowledge of the market conditions and respectful of our financial constraints to stick to a specific price range. The process was long and difficult, but not because of Mark. I mentioned this as a compliment to his continuous support, even in difficult times. He stayed with us, spent the time and effort and try to help us every step of the way. We finally sold for almost our asking price. We could not be happier and then we knew we were in great hands. - Immediately after, he found us the house of our dreams, challenging our preferences in favor for a better investment in the long run. He fought hard for us, in an aggressive negotiation which paid off four years later, when we decided to sell and move out of the province. - When that time came, we understood even better how right he was when he recommended us to buy that property. His months of planning leading to the listing, his advice, recommendations, assistance from his stager and photographer really made a huge difference. We honestly thought he was aggressive on the timing and pricing, and we could not be more wrong. It really paid off and thanks to his knowledge, planning and dedication the sale allowed us to create a good financial future for our family, while also enabling us to buy a superb property in another city. Mark and his team devote themselves to their clients. Excellent communication throughout the process, attention to detail, excellent service are just granted from the start. And Mark and his team mean it. We could not have found a better partner!! -Richard PF
