Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Baltimore, MD.
Mark helped us tremendously throughout our home buying experience. Both times working with Mark has been very easy and seamless. He is very easy to work with and extremely responsive, which means a lot for those of us who aren't very knowledgeable in real estate. I would definitely recommend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Riverside, Baltimore, MD.
My son and I happened upon Mark as we were looking for a place for my son to live in Baltimore. He was by far the most professional and knowledgeable Realtor we have ever met. Not only knowledgeable about the market but also about home maintenance and construction. He was super responsive, honest, straight forward, very attentive and consistently offered invaluable advice. Even the other professionals he referred us to such as bankers and inspectors were also top notch people. He helped us find, evaluate and purchase just the house we wanted. We are sooooo glad that we found him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Baltimore, MD area!

Showed home in 2014 in Canton, Baltimore, MD 21224.
We contacted Mark about a listing and made an appointment to see the home. He never showed up, nor did he call us to say that he wasn't showing up. When I tried to call him, I got voice mail and left a message. We never heard from him.

To say I'm disappointed with this review, would be an understatement. I have no clue as to who this person is or whether this is someone's actual experience. It would be one thing if this person said I was a no show. While that would be totally unacceptable in my view, perhaps there was some miscommunication and/or a misunderstanding to explain or make sense of the situation. The fact that this person writes that they called and left a voicemail on top of it, leaves me questioning the validity of this post. I work tirelessly to make sure each of my clients have a positive experience throughout the home buying process.
I've reached out to this person to learn who they are, perhaps where my systems had failed, and more about the entire situation. I have received no response back.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Baldwin, MD.
Mark was great! He helped us through selling our first home and buying our dream home. He was very honest, a good communicator, and definitely wise in the ways of the real estate market. He helped us get through a very difficult situation with our buyers in which they delayed our closing for about three weeks. It was an extremely stressful time for us as first time home sellers. Mark worked extremely hard to get us to the closing table, and we never doubted his ability to do so. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Canton, Baltimore, MD.
Mark was an excellent resource for us in the process of finding a new home. At the time we started looking for our new home we weren't sure if we were going to buy or look for a new rental. We sat down with Mark and discussed the financial pros and cons of renting vs buying. The process of buying your first home can be nerve wracking and we were fairly clueless, but with Mark on our side we felt confident in our decision to buy.
We started visiting open houses and checking out listings on our own while consulting Mark along the way and then our house popped up on Zillow. We knew as soon as we saw the listing that it was everything we were looking for and we thought it was listed at a great price. We called Mark and he was able to get us in to see the house first thing the next day. He quickly put together a market survey for us that compared the listing to other comparable houses that had sold in the area as well as others that were still on the market. This helped us feel assured that what we thought was a great price actually was. We put in an offer based on Mark's guidance and after some back and forth with the selling agent, as well as a competing offer, we were verbally under contract only 12 hours later! It was amazing!
Mark didn't stop there with his high level of service and dedication to his clients. As a first time buyer, he guided us through every detail of the process. Shopping for mortgage and home insurance, having the home inspected and negotiating with the seller based on the home inspectors findings, and going through the title and settlement process was all made much easier with the help of Mark Simone. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent in the Baltimore area.

Thanks Zach...It was a pleasure working with you and Rachel and I'm looking forward to visiting once you're both settled in!
Mark helped us find and close on our new home, which we love. He was very helpful at every stage of the transaction, working hard to negotiate terms that were agreeable and even make arrangements for an alternative, last-minute closing.
Mark had great recommendations for lenders and inspectors. He works with a good network of professionals and has a great office assistant who is responsive and thorough. Would highly recommend Mark; he knows how to get a deal done.

Congrats on your new home Joe! Thanks for the nice review!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Canton, Baltimore, MD.
Mark was a pleasure to work with and always was willing to go above and beyond to meet my needs. He helped me a lot with the home buying process, as I had no idea where to start. He was always flexible with time and made it very easy to meet with him even though I was working a 9-5 job. I would highly recommend Mark if you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Baltimore area!
