Mark was the listing agent for my 4 Plex on the Grand Canal in Venice, Calif. Even though the location was terrific (i.e. water front, near the beach and near Marina del Rey), the property was a challenge to sell, because it was fully rented with under market rent control tenants and the city was telling perspective buyer that they couldn't build on the property. Mark was very patient and thorough throughout the process, found me a buyer and we successfully closed escrow. I strongly recommend Mark as a real estate professional in the West Los Angeles and beach communities. He is very responsive to his client's needs and gets the best price for their property.

If you demand professional, prompt, attentive...Mark is your man! We recently listed an "ugly duckling" trust property in Santa Monica. We live 600 miles away and knew no one in the real estate field in CA. After calling 3 other real estate purported professionals and getting no response, we lucked out big time, leaving a message for Mark on a Saturday afternoon. By Sunday we had comps and listed with him that week. We were scheduled to go on vacation two days later, and returned to find six offers waiting! Best and final was WELL above asking. Mark's forward thinking and positive attitude in handling a very, very difficult longtime tenant and the surrounding "mess" was remarkable. He was compassionate and can do at every perceived roadblock, exhibiting confidence and instilling trust. Did I say that he has an awesome, on the ball, problem solving assistant? Kristen is in every way a supporter of Mark and "makes stuff happen". Ask either of these fine professionals a question and they will get you an answer, faster than you expect. The final word is these guys exceed expectations you never even thought to have. Do not look further, THIS IS THE ONE! (listed 9/4-escrow closed 10/14...amazed and delighted!)
We had an excellent experience working with Mark when purchasing our new home. Knowledgeable, responsive and cool under pressure, he helped us successfully navigate a complicated multiple offer purchase. Thanks Mark.
We first engaged Mark to lease our house in Santa Monica for a year when we temporarily moved to Colorado. When the move to Colorado became permanent we again engaged Mark to list and sell our house. We couldn't have been more satisfied/happier with the performance of Mark, Kristen and the rest of the team. Mark was very knowledgeable, responsive, and we are certain that with Mark's help we were able to maximize the selling price of our Santa Monica home. We highly recommend Mark and would recommend him to anyone who would ask for a real estate broker.
Mark is the definition of a professional. We worked with him to rent out our home in the Hollywood Hills. Prior to renting out our property, we kicked the tires on selling it and moving. In both cases, Mark was able to discern exactly what we were looking for. If we were to move, we needed a very specific type of property. Every so often he would send something to us that would make us curious. Ultimately, we ended up renting out our home and we had multiple applicants with great credit scores. He definitely exceeded all expectations, making a difficult process as streamlined and simple as possible for us. We’ll forever be grateful.
