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.

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).
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".

Mark has helped us buy and sell our homes multiple times and we have never been disappointed in his level of knowledge or quality of service. Mark and his entire team worked hard on our behalf to provide our family with the highest level of service during an out-of-state move and then back to Michigan again. We recommend Mark to all of our friends and family!

Mark Brace real estate is top notch. They are West Michigan's premier real estate team, and frankly I would venture to say they are Michigan's premier real estate team. They simply don't get any better than these guys. You will not find a more committed team of professionals, who go out of their way to take absolute care of their clients. No stone un-turned, no hill they won't climb for their clients. My go to real estate team commercial or residential, look nowhere else. Keep up the great work guys.

Mark is a very knowledgeable individual. He specifically helped us with the closing information we needed. We were dealing with a parcel of land that was farm land and the house with 1 1/2 acres was being sold from the parcel. We were selling the house in the same tax year that the parcel of farm land was split from the house. There were complicated details that needed to be clear at closing and Mark was very precise about what we should know and expect to be told by the title company concerning the upcoming taxes and division papers. We couldn't thank him enough.

Mark was fantastic throughout the sale of our home. We received an acceptable off within three days of listing! There were a couple times where issues popped up that could have decreased our bottom line but Mark was an awesome negotiator and held the deal steady through the whole process. We've already referred him and look forward to working with him again in the future!
Mark was such a great help selling my fathers home. It wasn't an easy task with us living out of state. The home was placed on the market Friday and had an offer on Monday!
Mark is your go to realtor for all your needs. He is the best.

I hired Mark after my listing with another realtor expired. Mark brought me two competing offers (and a sale) within 10 days of listing my home. He was knowledgeable and guided me thru all steps of the sale making the process of selling my home as easy as possible. If you're looking for someone to offer advice on getting your home sold, Mark and his team will work hard to make it happen.
