National Award Winning!!! "High Tech Real Estate Agent"
I'm your next generation internet savvy Realtor. I've been in Real Estate for 10 Years, and know how to position your property effectively on the internet. This is important to you, because 90%+ of buyers are looking for homes on the internet now. If you're reading this you're probably in that 90%. I have 2 business degrees from Western Michigan University, one in Finance with an emphasis in Real Estate, and the other in Computer Information Systems. As any successful Realtor I have current market knowledge and excellent negotiating skills. I'm a full service Realtor and my goal is to exceed your expectations, I plan to serve all of my clients to a level that they want to refer me to all of their friends and family. I also serve on the REThink Council, which is a national real estate council for the entire Berkshire Hathaway network. Only 10 professionals from around the world were chosen to serve on this prestigious board.

On a personal note, I am happily married to Kara, my beautiful wife. She also works with me in the Real Estate Industry & together we make a pretty great team (personally & professionally). I coached Rockford High School ski-racing for 6 years and am still an avid ski-racer.

Showed home in 2014.

We were the third family member to use Mark's expertise in the real estate field. He was very patient with our situation and was always ready to show us any house we inquired about. He shared his knowledge of the areas and properties we were unfamiliar with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Rockford, MI.
Primary point of contact: Krista Bashford

I worked with Krista Bashford and she was excellent. Very responsive, good overall advice in how to approach things, and always double checked listings to make sure it was worth everyone's time to see (driving distance to work, and to my preferences).

Bought a home in 2014.

We could not have been more impressed with Mark and his responsiveness. With houses flying off the market in the spring of 2014, Mark got us a great deal and it was done in a timely manner. As first time home buyers, we never felt like we didn't know what we were doing as Mr. Brace was extremely informative with every part of the home buying process. He was never pushy, he spoke to us in a very friendly way; we actually had many inside jokes by the time this process was complete. A few weeks after we moved in, (7 months ago now) we even received a Christmas ornament made to look just like our house - nice touch! We have already recommended him multiple times to friends.

Side note - he looks just like Matt Damon; and I mean the cool Matt Damon from "Good Will Hunting" not that lame duck from "We bought a Zoo".

Thanks Mark!
