I was a first time homebuyer. Mark was patient and informative even before we started looking at homes. He walked me through the entire process, explained to me things I didn’t understand and most importantly, took care of nearly every detail imaginable. His “No Worries” philosophy for buyers was true in action from start to close of escrow. His experience working with buyers was apparent from the very beginning. His approach to my purchase was professional and systematic to create a smooth and stress free transaction. I wanted to look at homes right away but he reassured me the first step in any buyer process was to sit down with a mortgage professional to ensure my credit and finances were in line and up to date. I was glad I did as there were a couple issues that needed attention which I immediately took care of and after reviewing all my options and programs available to me with his recommended lender, I qualified for more than I thought possible and found a program that had terms that were fantastic! Once I found the home of my dreams his market analysis of the subdivision and approach to the offer got me into the home for less than I thought I would have to pay. He justified the offer price to the sellers in a win-win approach that left all parties happy. The details along the way with his network of professionals – escrow and title companies, home inspectors, contractors, movers, roof inspectors, pool inspectors, home warranty options, etc. was very impressive and addressed all concerns I had. In fact, because of the thoroughness during the inspection process by bringing in a roof contractor after noticing a couple suspect areas, he negotiated another $5,000 credit at close of escrow because of issues found. Needless to say, I am thankful to have worked with Mark and am a believer in his systems for buyers. I don’t hesitate to recommend him for anyone looking to buy. In fact, I have already referred a couple of my friends to him who have already thanked me!
