When we began our house hunt we were adamant that we would not engage with an agent and would instead try to reach a private agreement with a seller. This attitude came from prior negative experiences with real estate representatives whom we felt were pushy and looked to close a quick deal to benefit them first.
By a chance meeting, Mark restored our respect and faith in sales agents through his unmatched dedication to our needs. Mark’s patience, industry and market knowledge, outstanding negotiation skills, professional manner, great sense of humour, and extensive links into related services we used or considered (from legal and home inspection to home decoration and renovation) made him the complete one-stop-shop package.
Even more importantly, by the end of our home-buying process, we felt we worked with a friend and not with an agent.
