Purchasing real estate can be stressful and complicated, but if you’re lucky enough to have Mark as your agent, he makes it 100 times easier and QUICK. I was a first-time homebuyer and he broke down difficult processes into easy to understand language. He is accommodating, patient, flexible and ALWAYS available. Mark's honesty and wealth of knowledge was a breath of fresh air. Consider yourself working with the best in the business. I will only work exclusively with him from now on. He is also a good negotiator . He helped me save a lots of money on my purchase. I will recommend him any day, any time.

READ THIS IF YOU NEED TO SELL YOUR HOME. Mark is new to the area, however he did EVERYTHING HE said he would do. I was looking for a SELLER agent not a LISTING agent. There is a big big difference. If your looking to sell your home, then I would give Mark a chance. He was very easy to work with. He even helped with the repair list from the inspection. WHO ever does that anymore. NO one I know. He never asked me to meet anyone. He handled everything. PHOTOGRAPHY AND 3D was impressive. I know this is what got the attention of my buyers. This was not an easy house for someone to sell. It was all about the SELLER agent for me.

We were first-time home buyers who had put ourselves on a bit of a time crunch for the home-buying process. We knew we we would not be buying a brand new home, and wanted to make sure we had a realtor who had the skills and knowledge to help us buy a house that was a good fit for us. We worked with a few different realtors, but when the time came to make an offer, we knew we wanted to work with Mark because he was skilled at making realistic evaluations and looking beyond the surface-level details of the home. He was willing to crunch the numbers to give us a starting offer that we were comfortable with and felt fair for the house. Mark was also a great negotiator, and was willing to follow our requests while also doing a great job of gauging the sellers and making recommendations. During the whole process, Mark was a great communicator. He was accessible any time, and was willing to research any questions or issues that came up. He's intimately familiar with the purchase process, and was able to walk us through our transaction with a frustrating seller. We would recommend Mark without hesitation.

I tried to sell my home for 9 months with two other Realtors before I met Mark. Mark came out to my home to discuss my needs. While there he told me what I needed to do to sell my home to achieve my objectives. Mark set realistic expectations from the very first phone call I made to him. After one full day on the market I had a full price offer! Mark did a remarkable job negotiating the terms of the contract to make the transaction as smooth as possible for me! I threw Mark several, unintentional, monkey wrenches midway through. However, he and his wife, Brandy, were able to overcome them with ease! Together Mark and Brandy make a wonderful team that exceeded all of my expectations that I could ever have of a Realtor! In addition, Mark also assisted me in purchasing an off market home that I really, really wanted. Again, I threw a wrench in this deal a few days before closing. Mark and his team solved a difficult problem with such ease that I didn’t miss a beat! I highly recommend The Costello Group. They will treat you like family while providing the best professional service possible!

I don't leave a ton of reviews, but I feel it's truly warranted in Mark's case as he far exceeded my expectations as a realtor. I have moved several times and worked with lots of realtors in the past (some great, some not so great), but none of them came close to matching the expertise and service Mark provided. He made both the buying and selling process incredibly straight-forward and efficient and constantly kept us in the loop with updates. In particular, three things stood out while working with Mark. 1) Expertise and experience. Mark's obviously been doing this for awhile and brings a tremendous amount of experience to the table. Further, he's incredibly knowledgeable about general home construction topics (e.g., home foundation and structure, electrical, drainage, building codes, etc.) and brought up topics in our house search I would have never thought to ask or which I've never seen another realtor ask. This really helped us feel like nothing was being overlooked or missed during our search. 2) Responsiveness. Mark really went above and beyond to not only keep us updated on every step of the buying and selling process, but to ensure we understood everything before proceeding. I felt like I could ask him anything about the process (in retrospect, no matter how stupid the question may have been), and get an immediate response (even when he was on vacation). Finally, 3) Overall Effectiveness as a realtor. Put simply, Mark is just really good at his job. My previous house took about 9 months to sell, but as soon as we committed to move, Mark got our house on the market, sold, and us into a new home we love in less than 45 days. Like most people, I don't enjoy moving, so it was really nice to find a realtor that I could simply hand things over to and know the process would run smoothly from start to finish. Thanks again, Mark!
