Ratings & Reviews

Mark came very highly recommended to me by a common friend/colleague. Initially I was hesitant only because I now live states away and couldn't personally meet with him. My entire transaction was handled from a distance without ever stepping foot in Arizona. I was putting my faith and trust in the hands of a complete stranger. That said, Mark was phenomenal. He explained the process in a very thorough manner and was very well-informed with the current market conditions. I truly felt he was acting on my behalf as if this transaction were his own. Not only was he great about touching base with me to keep me up-to-date on what was happening, he was also extremely responsive to my calls and emails. His straight-forward and honest personality was very refreshing and comforting to me. I couldn't have been happier with him and his professionalism. If you want an agent who you know will be honest, forth-coming, and work hard for you, Mark is your guy.

Other service. Tucson, AZ

Mr. Finchem is an agent you want on your team.... Why? Because of his knowledge and expertise in his chosen field. if your buying or selling, relocating from back east or across town he gives powerful advice and saves you a ton of money! Mark and I have shared many transactions over the last four years and not once have I seen him give bad advice or not protect his clients in this ever changing real-estate environment. He is a master negotiator which is very important and understands all aspects of any real estate deal.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Tucson, AZ.

Mark Finchem was personable and professional at finding home prospects that met our search. When we made an offer, he was exceptional at working for us in all aspects of the process of buying a homes specifically in the Tucson area, since we live out of state. He explained and kept us informed of the peculiarities of the purchase and timeline in Arizona. He coordinated our purchase with a competent escrow and financial team. We recommend Mark to anyone going through this process.

Showed home in 2011 in Tucson, AZ.

Mark represented us at Robson Ranch because we wanted to have his local market expertise to assist us in making a buy/not buy decision. We were out of state clients and called upon Mark many times to discuss the Robson property as well as get his professional counsel in helping us in selling our South Carolina property. His expertise was very helpful to us regarding both properties.

Showed home in 2011 in Casas Adobes, Oro Valley, AZ 85704.

Mark was a complete short-sale expert and gave us peace of mind throughout the entire process. He did all of the negotiating and corresponding with the bank which was above and beyond what we expected to happen during this type of transaction. We moved during the process and Mark went the extra mile to make sure we were informed in a timely and consistent manner. He also showed up for anything we needed him to at the house. We would recommend Mark Finchem in any real estate transaction as he is a true real estate professional. Thank you Mark, we will be recommending you to anyone needing a real estate agent!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Tucson, AZ.

Mark was extremely knowledgeable about the market place competition. His recommendations were always rooted in research, his feedback did not need to be solicited, and his outside the box thinking was refreshing. Unlike previous agents, Mark actively engaged in the process of selling my house. I highly recommend Mark to anyone buying or selling in his area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Oro Valley, AZ.

Although Mark was chosen by my ex-husband to be the new real estate agent to sell our home, I believe that my ex made a good choice. At the beginning of the paperwork when the contract for sale was presented, some of the wording was not clear and when pointed out, Mark didn't appear to want to put forth the effort to change it, maybe because of the fear of the loss of the contract. Our house had been on the market for over two years and this was the only offer we had received. After that rocky start, according to me, Mark proved to be an excellent agent. I don't live in town and had to conduct my contact with Mark through e-mails and telephone calls. Mark was very prompt in returning phone calls or answering my e-mails. While talking with him, he never made me feel that I was bothering him or he wanted to get on with something else. Our house had a difficult closing, but Mark stayed on top of it and kept me informed as to the progress or lack of it. Because of his diligence in keeping up to date in regards to the closing progress (our house closed almost two months after the original expected date) and keeping me informed, if someone was looking for an agent in Oro Valley, I would recommend Mark to anyone.

Deep knowledge of the local market is critical to selling homes. This home was under contract 25 days from the listing date, at listed price; a result of aggressive marketing. Selling a house long distance with physically separated SellerĂ¢??s adds a lot of complexity. Many home sales get blown up by sellers & even agents who donĂ¢??t understand that small changes made to an offer can end the offer. As a fiduciary protecting the SellerĂ¢??s best interests, great care was taken to protect the Sellers.

Showed home in 2011 in Tortolita, AZ 85755.

After searching for a winter home in Florida my fiancee and I decided to look at Tucson where I had gone to school. We only had a short period of time to look, but Mark showed us exactly what we wanted to see, something on a golf course near the Catalinas and in our price range. He did an excellent job. He hung in there with us showing us all that we wanted to see. I would say he is the best agent I have worked with. I gave him an excellent on negotiation even though we did not get to that stage. It is just an opinion based on working with him on our search. He is the kind of person you want on your team. As it turns out, my fiancee prefers Florida. This was her first visit to Tucson and she did not like the desert.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2009 in Casas Adobes, Tucson, AZ.

Mark showed me several houses in my price range and was able to help me narrow down my search to the perfect house for me. He was available during times that worked with my schedule and was very knowledgeable about the home buying process which was great for me being a first time home buyer. I have recommended Mark to several friends and will continue to do so in the future!
