Mark stood out from other realtors in regards to his advice and guidance. He really saved me from falling into a real estate disaster. He made a recommendation early on when I made an offer on a house that saved me a minimum of hundreds of dollars, and helped me realize I should pull out of the deal. He helped me with another transaction where I was reluctant to ask for a price reduction after an inspection found several deficiencies. His instincts of how much room was still left for negotiation was right on. He has been a valuable consultant as I have accessed his expertise on other possible real estate adventures. It is very important to have an experienced realtor and Mark is exceptionally knowledgeable of the Portland Market. His realty office is one I like to support. They are not a big corporation, they are welcoming, well run, and they are focused on customers. Mark and his teammates are community members, authentic, and down to earth. I have been very satisfied & thankful for my real estate experiences with Mark Borgeson.
