Mark was a great agent from the very beginning. We had worked with another agent and had a less than desirable experience so we were a bit hesitant at first, but our house-selling fears quickly subsided. Mark went above and beyond throughout the entire process. He also always took the time to explain things in detail to ensure that we understood everything and were on the same page. He was quick to respond to any inquiries whether it came via phone call, text or email. Mark was also willing to take any of our requests into account and wasn’t pushy with suggestions—but did provide many good tips! He was clearly very motivated to help us sell our house in a timely manner. His dedication and positive attitude truly made him a pleasure to work with. If you work with Mark you won’t regret it!

As a first time home buyer I had alot anxiety and excitement balled up into one about the whole home buying experience and didnt know what to expect. Not only did Kevin take me under his wing and went way above and beyond to find me my home. With my home search I was looking specifics in home and Kevin was able deliver. I feel very fortunate having Kevin as my agent. I don't call Kevin my agent anymore I call him family. Kevin was always knowledge, professional, and tentative the whole time. If you looking for agent who goes above and beyond than Kevin is agent you want you won't be disappointed.

Kevin was great! He met with us where it was convenient since work and kids kept us in a million directions. He worked hard as our agent to get the best home for our needs and made sure that steps in the process were dealt with in a timely fashion. His knowledge and experience are an asset to any home buyer.

My husband and I feel so lucky to have had Mark as a realtor when buying our first home. Having never gone through this process, we relied on him to guide us through. He was so helpful and was available to answer our questions whenever we needed him. He was so knowledgeable and honest with us. He has a very supportive, calm, and sweet demeanor that provided a sense of comfort during what could have been a very overwhelming and stressful process. Unlike some of the other professionals in the field that we had to work with and weren't necessarily trustworthy, he was never pushy and always looked out for us. He went above and beyond to meet with our contractors even when we couldn't be there and thoroughly researched all of our questions. We would definitely recommend him!!

Mark helped us purchase our house recently and went above and beyond. He was consistently kind, helpful and easily accessible. We lost a house prior to this because of the realtor we had first chosen. We were so disappointed with our original realtor we were beginning to lose hope and had to leave them. Then we met Mark and we can't say enough good things about him. He went to inspections for us, gave us contact info for plumbers and electricians. He was there when we couldn't be. I would definitely recommend Mark and use him again if we have a need in the future. Truly a great guy and realtor. Thanks Mark!

I have sold and purchased many homes in my life and what set Kevin apart from all the other realtors was his patience and systematic approach. He took the time to listen to me and my needs before rushing into showing me homes. He has the unique ability to gather a lot of information, assemble it neatly which translates to competence and confidence in this quick moving market. He sets realistic expectations on the buying and selling process as well as what I could sell my home for in a reasonable amount of time. He advised me on what repairs needed to be made and assisted with staging for maximum return. I don't want to forget to mention that he always answered his phone or called me back very quickly, which is not always the case with a lot of realtors.

He sold my house in one weekend, which was amazing but I hadn’t yet found a new home. He helped me locate a short term rental until my new house was ready to move into. He knows the area well and it shows! He has a vast network of folks just like him to assist with professional photography, staging, moving, repairs and landscaping. Thank you Kevin for all your help with selling and buying my house with great enthusiasm.

Kevin worked with me for over a year to help me buy a home that I am very happy in now . He is very knowledgable about local markets and was very proactive and prompt in showing me properties in the zip codes I wanted (school is very important for me ) and with the features I wanted and of course, within my budget. I never felt pressured to settle on any place that I did not like for any reason (unlike some other agents). The best part about working with Kevin is his kind, friendly personality - you feel like you are with a family member , I really mean that . He completely can see and understand your perspective and helps you find the right properties . Kevin also, within a few hours notice , presented an offer for the house I liked, to the seller . The seller already had another offer, so we had to turn ours in quickly and Kevin was able to take care of that . He was also able to negotiate a decent percentage of closing help from the seller. From beginning to end , Kevin took care of every step of the process with with a lot of attention to detail, helpful suggestions and excellent professionalism .
I would highly recommend anyone needing a real estate agent to work with Kevin.

Kevin guided us through the process of both selling and buying. He worked tirelessly to ensure that the transactions went as smoothly as possible and that we maximized the value of our property. His use of professional photographers made sure our house showed well online. When searching for a new property, Kevin patiently worked with us as we explored dozens of options, often leading to long evening and weekends. His knowledge of the Maryland counties was amazing, and he was able to point us to areas my wife and I were not terribly familiar with.

Kevin is the exact realtor we were looking for dedicated, honest, and with our interest first and foremost in his mind. He worked with us for a year until we finally found the exact right home for our family in the community that was right for us. Whenever we would call he would answer, I honestly don't think I have ever left him a message. He was battling with the builder to get us what was promised and paid for the home inspection himself on our newly constructed home.

He was dedicated to selling our previous home and we had a contract in only a few months. He offered suggestions on improvement, who we could trust to get them done, and the staging needed to sell our home for top dollar. This is truly where he shines, he should really be on one of those design shows. My family was truly blessed to have Kevin on our side through this difficult move. We could not have done it without him.
