"We have had the pleasure of working with Mark Markelz several times
over the past few years. First we bought a house with him as our agent,
then sold our house, bought a new house and rented a house in between.
Each time Mark worked diligently as our agent to complete the transaction
and every time it was a very smooth process thanks to Mark. Mark
is EXCELLENT with COMMUNICATION; I was always able to get a hold of
him quickly through e-mail, phone calls and sms text messages. Mark
SOLD our house in January 2010(in a terrible market) in less than 2 weeks. He is excellent at what he does and I can't imagine that there is
anyone out there that is better at real estate than Mark Mark continues to
assist us today no matter what our needs are including finding me land
surveyors as well as top notch general contractors. Thank you for all of
your help over the years Mark...we really appreciate it!"
Jeff & Lori Miller


"Housing crisis? Really? In August of 2009, when we decided to list our
house for sale, we were told by friends and family that we were crazy. After
all, we were in the midst of difficult economic times with declining wages,
declining house values and rising unemployment. The indicators were that
there could not be be a worse time to sell our house. The one thing that
our friends and family did not factor into this equation was our Realtor, Mark Markelz. Through Mark's diligence and determination,
our house SOLD in 2 weeks! His clever marketing, local realty
connections and constant communication with us and other parties
involved in the process made our experience extremely positive. During
our purchase process, we again benefitted from Mark's experience and
diligence as he worked tirelessly to help find our present house. Mark's
advice during the bidding process, his intial leg-work tracking down new
listings and his eternal patience was a huge comfort during an otherwise stressful process. We cannot be more enthusiastic in OUR
RECOMMENDATION of Mark Markelz. His experience, his creativity, his
organization and his diligence will undoubtedly meet anyone's realty needs.
Thanks Mark!"

"I chose Mark Markelz to represent me in the home real estate market for
the usual right reasons: I had known him for years as a fellow member of
my church; I had seen his consistent efforts to advertise properties in the
newspaper where I worked; he had clearly developed his career into arenas
of increasing responsibility and results. Little did I know, however, that
shortly after signing my listing contract with Mark, I would discover even
more crucial reasons for selecting him. Within a month of signing the
listing with Mark, I learned that I would require cardiac surgery. This sent
me out of town to Boston during the crucial spring market. During that
time, Mark became the steward of my property. His experience and
savvy provided him with an UNCANNY SENSE OF REALITY about the
current status of the real estate market. His sense of commitment to his
client was a great foundation for his ETHICAL and EFFICIENT handling of
the details of the transaction. It was very comforting to work with such a
professional person as Mark. Amazingly, during the entire time I was in
Boston (4 weeks), I never once spoke with him. He communicated entirely
with my son who lives in Boston. In fact, the final deal was carved out and
signed off during his interim. I can't do far as to say Mark is a mind reader
(no one is!), but he certainly has a realistic handle on how to make things
happen in an ever-changing real estate climate."

Ratings & Reviews

Mark is very knowledgeable about the University Area in Fairfield, CT. We worked with him to assess our home, list, and ultimately, he sold our just after 17 days on the market. He worked closely with the buyer's agent and was able to smooth over any negotiating terms. We recommend Mark for his experience, his knowledge, and his integrity.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Norwalk, CT.

Mark's pricing and timing strategies got my house sold in 2 weeks. He is the most responsive, knowledgeable and resourceful real estate professional you will ever meet. When buying, his excellent guidance on what to offer and how to position the terms got my offer accepted the same day in a very competitive market.  More Less

Thanks Jane! I simply listened to your needs and made things happen. Negotiating your home purchase was memorable....we closed the deal at midnight! Who would think that Realtors work 24-7!?

Bought a home in 2014 in Grover Hill, Bridgeport, CT 06605.

After researching agents to assist me with my home purchase, I found/called Mark on a Friday morning and by that same evening he was ready with 5 showings. Mark's hard work led to my purchase of a home that he located/negotiated for me with excellent support every step of the way. It was exactly what I was looking for. His knowledge of Southern CT, sense of urgency, experience, and overall professionalism make him a powerful ally and is why I continue to partner with him on additional properties.  More Less
