Testimonials

One of the many joys I receive from working with great clients (buyers and sellers alike) is to see the smile on their faces when they’ve closed escrow. It’s the icing on the cake when these great clients send real estate testimonials that let me know how they felt about working with me.

So, if you’re wondering if we’d be a good fit, please feel free to read some of my real estate testimonials from people I’ve worked with and continue to work with them through the years.

I first met Mark at an open house I stumbled into in our neighborhood. It was near the end of the open house, and we just got to talking about real estate, my profession, San Francisco, and life. A little over a year would pass before my partner, and I decided to embark on the journey toward home ownership, and it was clear we would choose Mark to guide and help us in San Francisco. From the beginning, Mark was knowledgeable, responsive, and engaged. He cares as much about his clients as people as he does about them finding their next home. Most important to us is working with people who embody integrity and have a sense of pride in what they do. Mark is all of that and more. We again turned to Mark to sell our house when life took us to another city. He represented us in the sale and was there with us during a stressful time relocating, new jobs, etc.

We recommended Mark without hesitation to our friends who successfully found their dream home too. You won’t be led astray working with Mark

Mark came recommended to us by our Seattle-based realtor when we moved to the Bay Area from Seattle. We learned very quickly that Mark is a professional with a deep toolbox to get new clients up and running right away. He asked us questions about what we’re looking for and how we make decisions. He adroitly understood our preferences as both individuals and as a couple, and within days, steered us toward homes that were all contenders for an offer. This is not at all an exaggeration: we made a successful offer within three days of actively touring homes with Mark. At this point is when we really learned how deep his experience is. He patiently and with expert knowledge explained all the details of every listing and especially the offer process. He shepherded us through to the day we moved in, including checking in on minor changes the seller had agreed to make. Without his guidance, I can honestly say we would not have been successful in buying our sweet, perfect, wonderful home. Mark is easy to talk to, kind, thoughtful, and very experienced. We recommend him strongly.

“…We cannot tell you how lucky we feel to be in our first home together ever; what feels like finding a unicorn in this town!

Thank you so much for all you have done for us; for the professionalism that we saw, and the support you have extended on our behalf. We would, and will, be delighted to refer your expertise and services to all our friends and colleagues.”

If we could give Mark more than 5 stars we would!! I would absolutely trust Mark with my closest friends and family. From the very beginning, Mark was a pleasure to work with, we felt at ease after our very first meeting with him. He started off as our agent, but is now our dear friend. Not only did he attend every Open House with us, but he educated us on what to look for and be aware of. We couldn’t have asked for someone more knowledgable on the San Francisco market. Thanks to his expertise and coaching, when the time came, we felt knowledgable and prepared to make big decisions. Mark asked us what was on our home “wishlist” and among many things we were certain we wanted to live in a specific neighborhood. He made this a reality and I am now sitting and writing this in our dream apartment. He made the entire process enjoyable and we are so fortunate to have worked with him. Reach out to Mark, I promise you will not regret it!

I have dealt with a handful of real estate agents in San Francisco in the past 20 years of living here. No agents impressed me more than Mark McHale.

To find the right agent, we interviewed 6 agents. Mark was by far the most prepared during the initial meeting. He provided me with valuable market information along with his expert opinion regarding the value of the property, and it was right on the money. Throughout the entire transaction, Mark was hands on and efficient. He guided me every step of the way and was able to close on a deal that was beyond my expectation.

Without a question, I would highly recommend Mark McHale to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent in the San Francisco area.

Short answer: if you want to buy/sell a home in San Francisco, give him a call.

Long answer: my wife and I have been looking for a place to buy on and off for the pass 3 years and we were lucky to be able to find a home with Mark. He is professional; no nonsense approach makes the buying process a lot easier than other. Even after the sale, he follow up with me a few times to make sure everything is working well. Moreover, he lives in SF and pretty close to the home I purchase and he was able to give us many good clues about our new neighborhood.

Thank you Mark.

We were referred to Mark by a friend that we trusted. From the beginning, we felt at ease with him and confident that he was connected to all the right people to get our place sold. He worked hard to coordinate our home’s preparation and sale with the ever-changing details and timelines of our company relocation to Atlanta. We are very pleased with his ability to manage all of the moving pieces and even manage to bring to us several attractive offers before we even hit the market. Mark was great at keeping his promises, giving us a clear road map on what we could expect and make it all happen for us as we focused on our next chapter. We will would highly recommend Mark to our neighbors and friends!

I was so very fortunate to have found Mark when I decided to sell my home quickly. I interviewed other realtors, but upon first meeting Mark, I trusted that he was the one to handle the largest transaction of my life. Over the next 38 days, he proved that trust. We not only closed in that short period of time, but Mark orchestrated the staging, marketing and even my moving.
Organization, experience, enthusiasm, calm, confidence, integrity are all words that come to mind when reviewing my experience with Mark.

Mark is the ultimate professional. With his background in owning his own real estate company and coaching realtors, he knows what is needed to do the very best job. Trust is utmost and Mark deserves all of it.
