Team reviews

Mark Van Kaenel and his assistant Tia Frazier were truly a pleasure to deal with. They worked closely with us throughout the process of selling a home that resulted in a very quick sale for an amount that far exceeded our expectations.<br/><br/>Our situation involved the sale of a house which had belonged to a family member who had passed. The house became part of a living trust. The house was in quite poor condition and we really didn't know how to proceed with trying to sell it. Mark and Tia started working on a plan immediately after asking for their help. They came up with some great, realistic ideas which matched our family's objectives (i.e., not spend too much money) regarding prepping the property for sale. We trusted and followed all suggestions and are very glad we did.<br/><br/>Just as we received the necessary legal paperwork regarding the trust, the house had been prepped and was ready to be listed and officially placed on the market. Mark developed an excellent pricing strategy which resulted in numerous (!) offers and a final selling price well over what we had hoped for exactly 7 days after "going live." The sale closed only seven days later.<br/><br/>The whole process went flawlessly. Any and all questions were quickly handled by Mark or Tia. We felt confident in our decision to hire them and they did not disappoint.<br/><br/>We highly recommend Mark and his office for any of your real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.275M in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.

Mark and his assistant, Tia are fantastic!! We had been looking for a home for months, with very specific criteria, during a time that there wasn't much inventory. They stuck with us and continued to show us houses until we found our dream home! Mark negotiated a contingency sale on our dream house (virtually unheard of these days!) for the sale of our home in Cupertino. Mark also sold our house in Cupertino in a record 5 days! We had multiple offers that were WAY, WAY over the asking price! We believe that was due to Mark and Tia's attention to details like the beautiful brochure they produced, signage, advertising (everywhere!), and Mark's awesome negotiation skills. If we ever move again, Mark VonKaenel is who we will call! Thanks Mark!  More Less

Sold a home in 2014 in Cambrian Park, Cambrian Park, CA 95124.

After interviewing 4 different Brokers in the area we settled on Mark Von Kaenel. We are so glad we did. We live out of state and wanted to sell a rental property that had been our main residence for 30+ years. This was an emotional process and "team Von Kaenel" handled it as such. His strategy from the very beginning was one of preparedness. He was ready and equipped for EVERYTHING we came against in the sale process. His assistant, Tia Frazier was worth her weight in gold to us. Mark was VERY responsive to all of our phone calls and concerns. His team was professional and thorough throughout the process. The company they used to stage our home made it beautiful beyond recognition. We have 2 more properties we will be selling in the future and there is no doubt we will only use Mark Von Kaenel and his team.  More Less
