I was out looking at investment rentals under $300K, used 2 other dysfunctional Realtors then by chance met Marc via an MLS posting. Asked question, he responded with more info than first 2 Realtors combined and QUICKLY! I had no idea about the incredibly competitive nature of properties in Carlsbad/Encinitas/San Marcos until Marc honestly educated me to the realities. To my surprise I was shocked that it was going to be a challenge to even be able to find one available and compete against full cash buyers. Marc knew it would be tough for me despite a perfect FICO, 25% cash down and a pre approval letter ready to go. Finally on a Sunday, the perfect condo popped up on MLS, I was excited to see that it was a "normal sale" and Marc had texted me within 10 minutes to make sure that I had seen it. Marc came directly from his son's baseball game and we immediately made a full price offer and was able to purchase this perfect property thanks to Marc acting so quickly and efficiently. I sincerely believe that I would not have found a property if it were not for his high energy and incredible follow up! I highly recommend Marc Lavoie to anyone and have already done so to several friends who are also looking for what I had just purchased. HE IS THE BEST! W. Mike Marshall, Carlsbad, Ca.
