As an out of town buyer of a very special residence in Santa Cruz, I was represented by Mark Wise. Mark worked with me for almost 2 years in locating the home I eventually purchased. He then spent the next several months in negotiating with the seller a price that I could afford. Mark also recommended the loan agent (and contractors) that I ultimately used to complete the deal. Mark spent allot of time educating and advising me in this venture. He has earned my highest recommendation for anyone wishing to buy or sell Real Estate in the Santa Cruz area.
