Mark is amazing! I have been working on/off with Mark since 2009. After 5 years, I finally bought a condo at the Infinity. Throughout this time and through the whole process, he has been extremely patient and responsive. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Infinity and is very fair and trustworthy. Him and his team showed me at least a dozen units...both on MLS and pocket listings throughout this time. I am extremely happy with my condo and only wish I had listened to him and bought earlier!
Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 in South Beach, San Francisco, CA.
Mark definitely deserves the five star here. I probably will give him a higher rating if one is available. He has been absolutely wonderful to work with. Mark is honest, professional, efficient and experienced. He and his team really knows the ins and outs of real estate, especially in the SOMA area. He helped us sell our condo in just 1 month from listing to closing. He was with us every step of the way and always available to give good advices and great strategies. He is truly the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. I highly recommend Mark and will refer him to everyone I know who is interested in buying or selling in SF. Thank you, Mark!
It takes a lot of detail, skills, timing, and luck to sell a home. While we could not control many factors one thing we could select to maximize the best outcome was a realtor. We used referrals, reviews online, word of mouth, interviews, and resources online to select 3 people to interview. In the end we chose Mark and have no regrets. Whether I am buying or selling i would recommend Mark. He's a straight shooter. He isn't pushy or overly sale-sy using hackneyed jargon. I had to trust he turns on his sales pitch when needed but tones it down when not. I felt today's buyers are not into the hard sell. Today's buyers come armed with data, information, and get annoyed with a salesperson. After much deliberation, we decided to go with Mark because my gut said he could do it all. In order for a sale to happen, a lot is involved from paperwork to respecting emotions to logistics of cleaning/staging/un- staging/ painting/scheduling. Any hiccup in the process can slow things down for all parties involved. I found the process to be streamlined, painless, and as pleasant as a move/sale could be.
There are other realtors out there and my gut said they could be any of the following: deceitful, overly pompous, more talk than action,incompetent, lazy, you get my drift. I didn't want that kind of person getting commission on our asset that we care about. Ultimately you can't choose your buyer, the market, or the timing but this one realtor is who will be there to represent your property and present your home to others. We felt most comfortable with leaving keys to him and letting him do the rest. Mark knows the SF soma area, was responsive even when I was asking questions, personable, not pushy, and professional. You also need a realtor that works and plays well w others in the real estate community. We felt he partnered well w his community, his clients and buyer's agents. That is key to a smooth close.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $1.175M in Mission, San Francisco, CA.
We had a fantastic experience with Mark. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He helped us find a loft that perfectly matched our desires before it ever went on the market, and then place a preemptive offer that was accepted. This was possible only because Mark is so deeply connected to the real estate community south of market. We are thrilled with our new home, and we will definitely work with Mark in the future.
Mark was very knowledgeable about the market, set a selling price to generate interest, marketed in all the right places, highly organized, available and communicative - and most of all sold our unit quickly at a great price with minimal stress! I highly recommend him!
I have known Mark Choey for a number of years now and trust few other realtors with my borrowers as much as I do him. He is very knowledgeable about his market and and really knows how to negotiate the desired results for his clients. As a mortgage originator, I find him to be the best representation of the real estate broker. He is always reachable, knowledgeable, and does an exceptional job negotiating for his clients. As a banker, the thing I find most compelling about Mark is that he ALWAYS picks up his phone and gets right to the issue that we need to resolve. For the San Francisco Market, I would send my prospective buyers to no one else, and If you elect to ask Mark represent your Real Estate needs with either buying or selling, you can't be in better hands.
Mark is a highly capable broker and is an expert in SF's premier real estate along the Waterfront. He understands the marketplace well and provided me with excellent advice to secure the property I was seeking. His team was efficient in handling the paperwork, and kept me informed in every step of the way. And his involvement continued after we closed the property, with assistance to resources for cleaning and painting to make our property a true home. You can have confidence with Mark representing you.
Mark was the clear choice for us when we decided to sell our condo in SOMA. He knows the neighborhood like nobody else. Mark helped us make informed decisions regarding pricing and timing. He made us feel like his number one priority. Mark made the experience as enjoyable as possible and we couldn't be more satisfied with the end result. I highly recommend Mark and would definitely use him again.
