Rhode Island Real Estate Broker, Notary Public, RI Corporate Broker (10 years experience)
I have been in the mortgage business for nearly 19 years, and have owned my company for the past 12, so needless to say I have worked with numerous real estate agents. Mark is one of the best I have ever worked with. I refer him to whomever I can, which is not something I take lightly, as a referral is like gold, the highest compliment any sales person can receive, and Mark feels the same way. He is always available and does a great job in making the clients, especially the first time buyers, feel comfortable, in what can be an overwhelming process at times. He is real nice person as well who always has the clients' interest at heart. I look forward to closing more deal together.

Thanks for the praise, I could not do what I do without the support of professionals like you and your team at Family Financial Group . Our success is shared and our mutual clients are always relieved to have found a wonderful resource. Thanks Luke, Sarah and Jamie.
Mark was wonderful to work with. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and always available. He did a fabulous job finding us just the right tenants. I would recommend him to anyone and would certainly call him again if I needed an agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Warwick, RI.
We had trouble settling on a buyer’s agent while looking for our first home but after meeting Mark McHugh at an open house, we knew we'd found our agent.
Mark was the most dedicated and down to earth real estate professional we've ever come across. As first time home buyers, we were nervous and timid but Mark was there to guide us through the entire process. He answered my crazy questions whenever then came up. Whether at 9pm or on Sunday... no matter, Mark was there to lean on every step of the way.
Take it from the happiest first time home buyers in RI... Mark is the ONLY choice to represent you!

Thank you Josh & Sarah. It was a pleasure to work with you and your family. Buying a home is a big decision for anyone, so it's important to have experienced help along the way. There are no crazy questions... Take care, Mark
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Warwick, RI.
Mark had our home under contract in 8 days. We worked with him on the listing price and sold for 96.5% of that listing price. He worked very hard with the 1st time buyers who had lost several previous bids. We were so happy with his services we chose him to represent us on our purchase as well. A professional at keeping all parties on point. We would never use a different RE broker now that we know him!!

Mark assisted in the sale of my mother's home. The moment we met Mark, we knew he was the person we wanted representing us and we were never disappointed. His familiarity with the market and analysis of the comps in our area was spot-on, and his on-line presentation of the house top notch. Subsequently, the home sold in four days for 98% of asking price. He was wonderful with my mother, very patient in assisting her with some of the technicalities of the transaction. He sets a comfortable, friendly, and light tone, without sacrificing an ounce of professionalism. It was a very positive experience for us, and we couldn't recommend him more highly.

As a first-time-homebuyer, I could not have had a better agent than Mark. First and foremost, he made the process fun, which immediately put me at ease. I had tons of questions since this was a new experience for me. He answered all of them clearly and if he didn’t have an answer he made sure he got back to me in a timely manner. I was impressed by how often he anticipated my needs and provided me with the information before I even knew I needed it. I also appreciated Mark’s patience. He never pressured me to make a decision before I was ready. I absolutely trusted his judgment and appreciated his guidance as I negotiated for the house I eventually purchased. Mark listened carefully to what I said I wanted. I felt he knew exactly what I was looking for and helped me find the perfect home.
Working with Mark is like having a caring and knowledgeable friend going through the buy/sell process with you. He has strong real estate knowledge and skills, and combines them with compassion, humor and a genuine interest in helping his clients achieve the real estate solution that best meets their wishes and needs. He's responsive and professional yet also very accessible and approachable. During negotiations, he was able to strike agreements that met my needs while also keeping the process moving forward. Mark is a good partner to have on your side.
Mark has a great personality. Especially for this profession, where you have all different types of people. He really is a people person. He goes above and beyond what a realtor is supposed to do, but he also cares about his clients happiness. He helped us sell our home after we had already moved. When I say helped us...I mean he took care of everything and just made it easier for us to enjoy our new home and not worry about our other home we were selling. He found the right family that would be happy there.
A couple of years ago Mark also helped us find and home for my In-laws who were moving here from Florida. He was so helpful and thoughtful in such a sensitive move for them and an adjustment for us as well. He answered all their questions and concerns and just made everyone much more comfortable with their move.
Mark thanks again for all your extra time!!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $250K in Warwick, RI.
We had the privilege of having Mark help us buy our first home. Mark was patient, polite, honest and professional. He never pushed us, and we always felt he was excited to spend his time looking for the house that best suited us and always put our needs first. We were very impressed with Mark's knowledge and attention to detail. His expertise is without question. We were very fortunate to be able to work with Mark and without question would recommend Mark to friends and family.

We worked with Mark over a period of several months and we were thoroughly impressed with so many of his strengths! He is professional, not pushy, steady and calm in the face of pressures (which inevitably present themselves in every real-estate transaction we've ever entered into). Mark has a great sense of humor and he made us feel as if we were very important clients. His expertise is without question. He is confident. He is kind. He helped us to find our dream house! Mark showed us properties all across the state of Rhode Island. In many ways, my husband and I were scattered in our thinking, in our direction. Mark was patient and supportive with every twist and turn in our decision-making process. We value our relationship with Mark we feel very fortunate to have had him on our side. We would not hesitate to recommend him to our dearest friends and family.
