Mark Despain has helped us both purchase and sell two homes in the Fort Collins area. He is a pleasure to work with! He is knowledgeable about the local, state, and national housing markets and he makes clear-headed decisions, always keeping the client's best interest at heart. We have also found Mark to be incredibly honest and full of integrity. Never did we feel that we were being manipulated or taken advantage of. Likewise, we saw that he also was careful to act with integrity toward the other agents, buyers, and sellers with whom we did business. (We know from experience that this level of integrity is not always adhered to and we appreciated how Mark exemplified these great values so well.) Mark is also an all-around smart guy, so discussing the nuances of buying and selling property with him is engaging as he truly "gets it." We sadly had to move out of the NoCo area due to a job relocation, but we intend on coming back some day and we will not think twice about working with Mark again. We can not recommend him highly enough!
