Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Las Cruces, NM.
Mark was very helpful and knowledgeable. He always called me back and kept me informed throughout the process. He shared with me the names of some local workers, electrition , plumber and such to help get the house ready to move into. I was new to Las Cruces so it made everything so much easier. He made sure everything was done correctly.

I cannot imagine a more efficient and effective Realtor than Mark St. Paul. In selling our forty year old house on 3/28/12, on the market from 11/11, he went way beyond what I would expect from any Realtor. After carefully watching the property daily before the sale, including the placement of security lights, he took over watering duties three times weekly when I went into the hospital and became incapacitated with bronchitis. My wife and I had moved into a retirement home and he visited us every week with an update of progress on the sale.
The engineering inspection required by the buyer exposed a number of problems necessary for repair. Here, Mark was at his best, handling all of the problems with his own resources. Among other things, he personally removed and rebuilt a wooden gate I couldn't fix previously, raised and secured a long electrical conduit on the roof, repaired missing components of the main electrical panel, replaced a valve on the water heater, and tuck pointed a great many spaces on the exterior brick walls. Every other problem, such as sealing flashings on the roof, he solved through hiring a tradesman at a total cost to us of $50. In addition he contacted the power company to better insulate some connections. He handled every single problem himself.
This clearly showed his extraordinary personal skills in the building trades but, more importantly, his dedication to the sellers in reducing expenses related to the sale. Until the closing, Mark and his partner, who took care of paper work, visited us weekly with updates. The entire process was most comfortable; we always felt in good hands. The final negotiations for the sale ended as we had hoped; I cannot say how satisfying this has been mainly due to Mark.
Mark and I worked together in the University before he went into real estate and that surely assisted in accomplishing all of the above. His wide contacts in the community are far richer as a result of this former employment. His very engaging personality and easy going nature make him a captivating friend and business associate. I would never go elsewhere for reality services.
If Mark St. Paul were a lawyer, that profession would have an unblemished reputation. In helping us find a house in Las Cruces, he was an efficient, informed, and cordial realtor. He selected properties that met our specifications and were within our price range. His relaxed manner of showing houses was one of careful consideration rather than pressured salesmanship; he pointed out assets as well as potential problems that made us feel that we were receiving an education in honest real estate assessment. Now, as happy owners of a house we truly love, we recommend Mark with high praise and without the slightest of reservations.

Mark was the sellers agent for the house that we bought. It became a 'complicated' sale on the part of the seller and some property issues. Mark was great. He represented his (absent) seller at many meetings to get the issues fixed and comunicated with all involved very well.
Would highly recommend Mark.
This is our 8th house. When we moved out of state we lost our long time agent and friend, and in case you don't know finding an agent you can work with is tough. Mark reminded us alot of Michael, our other agent. A very good thing.
Mark St Paul has been my realtor for all but my first two real estate transactions in the Mesilla Valley. When it comes to the technology side of real estate, he is knowledgable and current. This is important to me because I travel for work and frequently have to conduct business via phone and computer. Mark is always very easy to reach whether by phone, email or text. All of my future real estate transactions will be handled by the professional services of Mark St Paul.
Mark is absolutely first rate! He not only knows the real estate market, he also really knows houses and was able to give advice that was crucial to us as people moving from out of town. He was always responsive to what we wanted in a house and his knowledge and negotiating skills got us a really good price for a house that we love. His help didn't end when the sale was complete; he has also been indispensable in getting us settled into our new home. I recommend Mark without hesitation.
We have worked with Mark St Paul twice. We were so happy with our experience with him helping us buy our home, that we also asked Mark to help us sell our home. Mark was very professional, he gave us a great market analysis, and helped us price our home right. Our home was on the market for 21 days with Mark representing us! When wew purchased our home, Mark really knew what my wife and I were looking for as well as the Las Cruces housing market. He kept our selections within budget and found us a home that had everything that we wanted. Thank you Mark for your great work!
Mark does an excellent job of listening and understanding one's needs. He is customer oriented and timely in his response back to you. If you asked him for information or some other real-estate related tasks, he always got back to us very quickly.
We remember one specific item about adding a deck to a home we were looking at and he had answer before we arrived back home.
His knowledge of the area is a great plus for anyone moving to Las Cruces..
