Team reviews

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.

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!

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!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Canton, Baltimore, MD.

We decided to work with Mark in process of buying our first home ever based on his reviews on Zillow. After finishing the process, We are so glad that we mad that decision. We were new to Baltimore and knew little about the neighborhoods. We also had a busy schedule and needed somebody who would be responsive and flexible to work around our schedule. We also didn't know much about home buying process since this was our first home. Mark was very pleasant to work with, extremely helpful through out the whole process, always available to answer questions and provide information, and was willing to work around our schedule in showing houses. We found him trustworthy, knowledgeable and on top of his work. With his help, the whole process went smoothly and within few months, we are enjoying our home in Canton. Even after the closing date, when there was a slight problem with heating that we discovered late, Mark helped us to have it fixed through the seller.

Overall, it was a great experience working with Mark and we recommend him to anybody who is looking to buy a house in Baltimore area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Canton, Baltimore, MD.

From the first day that I contacted Mark he was on board to find me exactly what I was looking for. I had in mind a 3BR 3-1/2BA with roof deck and parking pad in the City, and with a high likelihood of getting CHAP tax credit. This is a really specific request to fill. He was able to find something in construction that fit these requirements within a week. He has great connections throughout the City and surrounding Counties that helped tremendously with working out the schedule of work, financing, and any other issues I had. This home was in construction, so I had options to have some customization and personal preference included into the Kitchen, Flooring, Paint, Address Sign, etc., etc. and also was able to add on a two-tier rooftop deck as well. Mark was able to help set me up with a grant with a city with some work put in on my own, which helped out tremendously with the closing. The house is great, and I recommend Mark to anyone in the market, or even considering a home.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Canton, Baltimore, MD.

As a first time buyer in the Baltimore area, Mark and his team were excellent in providing the appropriate advice in a timely manner. The closing process was where Mark and his team came to the fore. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who needed guidance on what to look for when buying for the first time in Baltimore. Mark was affable, professional and ultimately a good guy. Zach, his assistant, was also excellent. Strong team!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Owings Mills, MD.

Mark's knowledge and experience was the reason we were able to sell our house within two weeks! Mark took the time to explain our options in detail, answered our questions with patience, and respected our opinion. Mark was easily accessible by email, text, and cell phone. His administrative assistant, Zach, was also a pleasure to work with. Communication between everyone involved was flawless! We are looking forward to working with Mark again as buyers.
