Team reviews

I am normally not being a huge fan of bureaucracies and the headache it takes to buy a house or even the people that work in real estate, but Mark Mcdonald completely changed my view. He is a real estate agent that is very professional, but also down to earth, incredibly honest, friendly, and sincere. I could not believe the amount of effort and time he put into making sure we got the house we wanted for the price we wanted. He was available day and night. I couldn't imagine renting or buying a house from anyone else. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone looking to rent or buy a house! He is a real estate agent who cares about the communities he works in and the people he works with.

Bought a home in 2015 in Forest Park, Springfield, MA 01108.

We would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent a home in Asbury Park. He is incredible kind and helpful, has extensive local knowledge, and is a great communicator who made us feel informed and at ease through every step of the process. He was a great advocate for us; he definitely went above and beyond his call. I do not hesitate at all to recommend him!

Bought a home in 2013.

I loved working with Susan and Mary. They help me find the perfect home and were easy going and patient with me. My seller wasn't the easiest to deal with and they help to assure me with the process stood beside me the whole way. I would suggest them to any one.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Asbury Park, NJ.

When we contacted Diane Turton Realtors, we weren't sure how much our house was worth or whether it made sense to sell it in the current market. Susan McCarthy and Mary McAllister came by and told us that we could get more than we had expected. We told them that we wanted the house sold within three months and they suggested an asking price that was a little less than we wanted but within our acceptable range. They also told us exactly what we needed to do to get the house ready to show. We followed their suggestions and 5 hours after the house posted to the MLS, we had our first offer. In less than a week we had multiple offers that resulted in a bidding war. Ultimately, we got the price we wanted and the ONLY thing we had to do was to move our belongings out of the house. It was less than three months from the time we listed the house to the time of closing.

During the process, Mary and Susan remained respectful of our wishes regarding the showing of the house. We did not want any open house, nor did we want other Realtors traipsing through our house with hoards of people curious to see the house with no intention of buying. Even with this strict limitation, they were able to secure multiple offers in less than a week.

I can recommend Mary and Susan from Diane Turton Realtors with the highest level of praise and appreciation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Brick, NJ.

I am very thankful for the Asbury Park Office and in particular Debbie Marini. I must confess I was frustrated with other agencies Showing me short sales or for closures telling Us there was nothing in my price range Debbie listening to my frustration asked simply, Would you allow me to look for you? Please! Why not right. We went out twice, looked at exactly what I Wanted but just not exactly right. Before our second Trip Out Debbie called and said, I found you a house It is exactly you said you wanted. It was on the market One day! She freed up he schedule and said we need to see this today It will not last. We did. The next day we ha a contract And 31 days later we closed on the perfect house. With that said, I did my part and pushed the mortgage company To do a quick close and Debbie ran with the inspections And really communicated well, almost every other day. Mark mac Donald in the Asbury office and the rest of the crew We're over the top nice and helpful. There is not A better agency in Asbury Park Hands down!

Listed, but didn't sell my Condo home in 2013 in Asbury Park, NJ.

I found my agent, Susan McCarthy, to my knowledgeable about the condo market in Asbury Park. She aggressively marketed my unit and had a professional photographer take pictures which highlighted my unit in a positive light. My agent did host a realtors open house as well as a potential buyers open house. Both were extremely successful and my property continues to be viewed pending an offer.

Susan McCarthy comes highly recommended as a realtor. Both my husband and I were very impressed with her knowledge of the Asbury Park area and her eagerness to keep working to find us the place we've always dreamed of by the Jersey shore.
