Clark is that rare combination of a soft spoken, kind and compassionate gentleman with unreproachable integrity and professionalism who is also is extremely bright, savvy, proactive and strategic though never ever ruthless. No detail is too small, no client too challenging. There is always that bright smile, the warm greeting, the quick handshake and the soothing optimisitic tone, reassuring one that the job will get done. He could solve mostly any problem with his depth of knowledge not only of the most complicated aspects of the real estate market but of human nature and the art of negotiation. He anticipated every need and was always one step ahead of the game. I was in an unusual position, a single Mom with two small children trying to get away from a bad situation and buy a home quickly with less than excellent credit in a tough sellers market with little or no knowledge of the market or in fact what I was looking for. I had been to other realtors but when I found Clark, he immediately put me at ease, taking on all my challenges with great equanimity and infinite patience. He took it upon himself to educate me about the market, gradually, and in a friendly and non-judgmental manner. His sharp acumen, tenacity along with his authentic, innovative problem solving abilities, his passionate service orientation, his willingness to devote an extraordinary amount of time and energy to a client who was potentially a losing proposition, not to mention a demanding and impatient mess, encouraged us that all would somehow be well. His devotion, perserverance and flexibility as well as his ability to calmly and in an honoring fashion contain my scattered desperation served to find me and my kids the house of our dreams when I thought it would be impossible and at the price I could manage despite my concerns that this would require nothing less than a miracle. We are now living happily in a home beyond what we could have imagined, finding the safety and comfort we were seeking. It was easy to understand why he has been such a great success in his field. In the final analysis, it was the impeccable character, devotion, depth of intelligence and tireless hard work of this one man that saved one small family.
