Ratings & Reviews

We hired Mark to list our deceased uncle's house in July, 2014. The house sat right on the water in Neville Island. We had people make unsolicited offers to us prior to listing it, but we did not move on any of the offers because we were not aware of the true market value of the property. Mark had initially sold my uncle the house, so we decided to contact him to list it. Mark provided us with his thoughts on the property and suggested that we list it at a price which was far greater than any of the offers that we had previously received. He explained that property on the water is at a premium and we should not hesitate to list it at a price higher than what the actual house was worth. The house sold in less than a week after listing it. Mark handled the negotiations for us, and kept in timely contact with us throughout. Mark was our ace up our sleeve. He knows the area, and he is very knowledgeable about the local market.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Moon Township, PA.

Mark helped us purchase our first home. He deterred us from making a quick decision on a home that wasn't right for us. He walked us thru the process of buying from start to finish and took the time to explain every step along the way. Mark gave us knowledgable/trustworthy advice and took care of any issue that popped up in the closing process with the seller's agent. I plan to use Mark again to buy and sell my next home down the road.

Mark went above and beyond to help us find the right home for our family. We had unique circumstances while searching for a home and Mark was very helpful and patient with us through the entire process. We recommend Mark to anyone who's looking for real estate in the Pittsburgh region.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Sewickley, PA.

I came new to this country looking to settle in northern Pittsburgh in March of 2014 and was recommended to approach Mark by my sister who is a Remax realtor based in Las Vegas. It was pretty obvious from the start he was very professional and had a wealth of experience in all aspects of house purchase. I would definitely recommend him to anyone without reservation.

Very helpful and worked through a lot of complications in a timely manner. Made moving from other side of the state pretty seamless. I would recommend Mark to any homebuyer.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Mc Donald, PA.

After my father-in-law passed away, my wife and I immediately began looking for homes nearer to her mother. We were living in a small townhouse and Mark gave us a lot of tips to get our townhouse ready for sale and then it was listed. He was very respectful of the situation our two dogs presented and always gave us plenty of time to get out when potential buyers came though. Mark also took up the mantle of helping us find a single-family home. He was adamant about finding us the right home and always provided us with good advice. The last home we saw was the one that we purchased and I'll never forget that Mark was the first person to fall down in the house due to snow covered shoes and hardwood floors! He worked with us to buy and sell and I'd recommend him to anyone!

Adam, It was a pleasure working for the two of you and now to see your family multiply in the home makes me smile even more! I will not forget that day, note to self, dress shoes and snow NEVER go well together! I wish you and your family many years of happiness and blessings! Mark

Mark is a very professional, knowledgable and courteous real estate agent. His analysis of the market and our property was accurate and helped maximize the price we had hoped to receive for our house. I would absolutely recommend Mark if you are selling or buying a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Coraopolis, PA.

Mark sold our last house and the one before, he has a great track record with us of selling ours homes super fast!!! He is just great at what he does and we will use him if we ever sell, again!! He is honest, knowledgable and is super easy to work with and he listens to what we wanted to do and marketed both our homes perfectly. Both times, we had a buyer within just a few short weeks! We had both properties sold within a month and we feel this is because we had the " Best" realtor on our side assisting us to sell. If you choose Mark, he will not disappoint and he will get your house sold as he did for us! Thank You Mark for your dedication and help getting our place sold, we are thankful to God for leading us to such a wonderful realtor! You have helped our family immeasurably, so we could move on in life and YOU made it enjoyable and easy! Top Notch. Godly, honest , trustworthy, knowledgable would be how we would describe YOU Mark! Thank You!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Coraopolis, PA.

Our son was purchasing his first home and asked for some guidance. We immediately contacted Mark. He began the search in specific areas and with the details of the property we were searching for. Mark listened to our needs and found us the property we needed. His expertise helped us find what we needed and made the purchasing of the property a breeze.

Collette, It was a pleasure helping you and Ted find the right property for your son and his family. I am glad to be a small part of helping you raise up your family. It is rewarding knowing that the new home will be the foundation for him as he raises up his family.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Sewickley, PA.

Mark is an honest and seasoned real estate professional. I have had the pleasure of working with him for over 15 years in the housing industry on a professional basis. He has recently helped me on a personal level with the market analysis and listing of my family's estate. His breadth of skills allowed him to creatively handle a listing that other brokers thought to difficult to handle. You will find him to be very straight forward, knowledgeable of the local market, extremely honest and eager to get you the best deal possible.
