My wife and I worked with Mark to list and sell our condo in early 2018 after first meeting him the previous fall. It's safe to say we both liked Mark from the start. Mark had the confidence that came from successfully working in Bay Area real estate for so long and yet was very easy to talk to, taking the time to understand us and our desires for our condo sale. One thing, in particular, was a desire we had to sell to a family, not someone who would just rent the condo out. Mark understand and accepted this, weeding out what he suspected were the investor offers and even telling another Intero agent who wanted to purchase it himself for renting that we wouldn't be interested. Given the low inventory at the time of year we were listing, Mark recommended a solid plan for how to best fix up our condo and how to list it. This included painting, carpet replacement, and a few other minor fixes to the condo, and then of course staging, all of which Mark took care of with his go-to contractors at a very reasonable price. We were very pleased with the results and had family members telling us how nice the condo looked in the listing pictures. Mark understood the market enough to keep the asking price low, similar to the asking price for 3 other condos that had sold in our complex in the prior 6 months, and this turned out very well for driving up interest and foot traffic into the open house. In addition to listing, Mark provided what turned out to be great advice on initial offers. We received 2 offers before the open house, both of which expired before the scheduled date for the open house. These were strong offers, and one of which was from buyers represented by one of the agents in Mark's office. My wife and I were unsure whether to accept or not but to go forward with the open house after a good discussion with Mark. The advice worked well as we got an even better offer after the open house, but I think the advice was good regardless of the outcome because we would have always been questioning whether we could have gotten a better offer. Working with Mark was a great experience all around, and we would eagerly work with him again for any future real estate sales.
