Team reviews

Mark was great. Helped us navigate through a tricky situation and then once we get out of that he immediately showed us the house we were looking for. I recommend mark for buyers who use realtors the way they are supposed to be used... To understand what the buyer is looking for and show them the right homes in the right neighborhoods! Don't try to do it on your own. Let Mark show you the homes that you won't be able to find quickly enough online!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Canton, Baltimore, MD.

Mark is a rare to find professional. He is very knowledgable, efficient, hard working, energetic, straightforward, and honest. He met our timelines perfectly. It took him less than 2 months between first contacting him and settlement of our new house. In that time frame he was able to show us over 20 houses, prepped 3 contracts. He also has a very responsive team of professionals helping throughout the process. I am in construction industry for over 10 years and have not met many excellent professionals like him. Although I am very hard to please person, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about him and his assistants. Thanks again Mark, Ibrahim Kucuk

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2015 in Canton, Baltimore, MD 21224.

Mark really knows the market and his business. He helped us with contractors to get work done on the property as we live 10 hours away. It made for a speedy sale of our property

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Lutherville Timonium, MD.

Mark understood the market so much better than the other realtors we met with. The others seemed to want to price too low, so they could get a quick sale. Mark understood the value of our home and how to best market it. He gave us an excellent presence on-line with many photos carefully taken by a professional photographer. We had two full price offers within 24 hours of house going on-line. We are very grateful for the effort and skill displayed by Mark to sell our house and we definitely recommend Mark to anyone else.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Lutherville Timonium, MD.

Mark is an absolute realty professional who assisted us with both buy and sell. He successfully managed both transactions and one side was a short-sale purchase. He continually offered his best advice and more importantly he offered us options and solutions for all situations we faced. I felt that Mark reduced our stress and carried risks with us as if it was his own. He was the 3rd agent we worked with and ultimately decided to entrust him with our huge financial commitment. We would highly recommend Mark and endorse his negotiation skills, sound knowledge of his field and competitors as well as support his acumen as a business professional.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Patterson Park, Baltimore, MD.

Mark was very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the home buying process. He has a strong background of the canton/upper fells/Patterson park/butcher hill neighborhoods as well as helpful information and tips about the homes we toured. He was overall responsive in answering questions and returning calls/emails. He was always honest and straightforward with information but never leading or opinionated.

Showed home in 2015 in Canton, Baltimore, MD.

Mark was great! Knowledgable, experienced, poised. He tended to my concerns throughout the entire home buying process, and definitely went above and beyond in providing customer service in multiple instances. Would definitely use him again.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Patterson Place, Baltimore, MD.

Mark has been one of the most helpful, forthright, and diligent people, that I've had the pleasure of working with. I consistently felt that I was being given accurate and sound sales advice, with no agenda other than satisfying another costumer. I would strongly recommend using Mark Simone.

Bought a home in 2014.

I met with him when I was looking for a house in Baltimore, honestly I think he knows the great Baltimore area well since he is a native resident there, but I don't think he has a good responsiveness. For the beginning, he was very warm before I decided to hire him. However, he always late when I need to do the walk through after I signed the contract to hire him as my buyer agent. Once, I asked him why you were late, both seller and me there, he answered that he couldn't find house address. How ridiculous! I thought he did a lie to everybody, because he said that he knows every road in the city when I asked about his local knowledge first time. However, the closing day he came to the site almost half a hour early, because seller was preparing the commission check for him when we was doing the closing paperwork, he never be late at that time. Anyway, I wouldn't recommend this agent to anybody!

Not sure where to begin or end. It was new construction though...the streets and house numbers were not posted...so yea, I couldn't find the place. Then you're upset that I was early for closing... can't win with some folks! I will also say I'm very surprised by this review. Not once did this client ever express being upset at all. He even smiled and posed for a picture at closing for me.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Oliver, Baltimore, MD.

Mark was very knowledgeable of the area and patient with us during the sale of our property. We had some unknown permit issues at the time of listing. The contractor assured us everything was completed in accordance with the City of Baltimore standards when in fact, it was not. Thus, this caused the sale to be held up until the issues were corrected.

Mark and his team stepped up. The whole team was great at negotiating and following through to see the difficult sale was completed. Calls were returned well within 24 hrs for every issue that arose. I don't know if my property would have sold without their expertise.

I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a great agent!
