Mark DuBois is a model of integrity and a GEM to work with. Not only was Mark extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the East Bay area and real estate market, and fast and accommodating to our every need, he is very personable, funny and patient. Mark will honor what you want, and he is a great listener. He offers plenty of sage advice and truly goes above and beyond to make sure you end up with up with a great home. When we were in the final stages, Mark noticed a huge leak that even the general inspector missed, and he also had a ton of creative ideas for helping us to stay within our budget. Taste is always a private matter, but I also thought Mark had a great eye and sense of style. In general, you are lucky and in good hands if you work with Mark. Overall, we ended up with a truly fabulous home within our budget.
