Mark is a Miracle Worker!

Mark is a magic!   He not only sold my condo for a top-of-market price, but he also oversaw the months of repairs needed to get the property into mint condition.  He made excellent suggestions on improving my home so it would show to its best advantage.  Then he gathered bids, met with repairmen, and supervised all the work as it was being done.  As I live out of state, this was crucial. Mark arranged for new carpeting and interior painting, and then did a phenomenal job marketing the property once it was ready.  From concept to photos to his presence at open houses, my condo could not have been better presented.  His knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market is truly impressive.

When my home sold, the buyers wrote a letter in which they specifically mentioned Mark.  They said his helpfulness, his knowledge, and his obvious love of my property, helped them make up their mind to buy it.  Mark is incredibly positive, so professional, and as a bonus, he kept me laughing through the months of preparation.

In his hands, my condo was transformed, and then put out to the public as the beautiful, unique home it is.

I honestly cannot say enough to recommend Mark as a realtor.  He is a miracle.

Mark is an Excellent Realtor!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend our realtor, Mark Shumway. He helped us sell our old home and purchase a new home in San Francisco. During this entire stressful situation, we truly appreciated Mark's patience. From the time of our first meeting, he was honest and direct. He explained to us how the process would unfold so we wouldn't be surprised, and he recommended things that we could do to help with the sale and the purchase. In those discussions, it quickly became obvious that Mark knew the market and the players in local real estate. Mark communicated with us frequently and effectively. He was very proactive and we felt both transactions were handled in a very professional manner.  Our questions and concerns were addressed promptly, and deadlines were met on time. Our closings on both properties went smoothly. Mark's excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism and dependability, made the sale process so much easier for us. We knew instantly that we had selected the right Realtor. We have been telling our family and friends about the great service we received from our realtor, Mark Shumway, and we'll continue to recommend him and his agency in the future.

I now Live in the Home of my Dreams!

As a first time home buyer I was a little weary of my ability to navigate the San Francisco real estate market.  Thankfully I was introduced to Mark, who made the entire process smooth, and in some cases fun!  He made time to get to know me and truly understand what I wanted in a home.  While attending showings he made sure to educate me on what to look for that would need further inspection, or what is good about a house.  When we found a home that was perfect for me and I stated "I want this home", he coached me on how to engage with the listing agent, and how best to structure my offer to make it competitive.  I'm now living in that exact place, the SF home of my dreams, and it's in big part to Mark, and his guidance throughout the entire process.  I would highly recommend him to any future home buyer.

If you Need a Great Realtor, Look No Further!

I met Mark at an open house where he represented the seller. I didn't have a realtor at the time and was just going to open houses to get a sense of the various neighborhoods in the area. Mark was energetic and easy to talk to, and I immediately liked him. He took a genuine interest in understanding what I'm looking for and answered my questions about the unit, the neighborhood, and the market. I never once felt that he was just trying to close a deal. I asked him to be my realtor that day. During the process of house hunting, Mark checked in often, and every time I expressed an interest in a unit or even just mused about something, he would immediately find information and tell me everything I could possibly want to know. After I bought my home, Mark continued to keep in touch and check in, and is always happy to help with anything I need. If you are looking for a realtor to who listens to you and wants to help you find the right home for you, look no further!

Mark Never Missed a Beat!

We used Mark as our realtor to purchase a condo in San Francisco.  It was an absolutely wonderful experience working with Mark.  He took the time to listen to us and find out what our needs were for a new home.  Mark thoroughly researched potential properties.  When it came time to purchase - Mark coordinated the whole process without missing a beat.  


We closed one day early!

We 100% Recommend Mark!

In our search for the perfect home, Mark was amazing. Without Mark's persistence and guidance we would not have purchased our home. 


As clients we cast a very wide net on what area we wanted to purchase. We looked at houses from San Francisco to Sausalito to Oakland. Mark was eager to see every house with us or in his free time. He would meet us early on a Saturday morning or late on a Wednesday evening. 


In addition Mark provided us with great insights into each house we viewed, he mentioned things we would not of originally considered in purchasing a home. He was always proactive in getting us the inspections, disclosures and the latest market statistics. 


After bidding on over a dozen houses, we purchased a home in Sausalito. Our home search took 6 months and can't say enough how patient and generous Mark was with his time, efforts, and insights. 


We 100% recommend Mark

We Couldn't Have Done it Without Him!

We met Mark at an open house while beginning our search for a new home in San Francisco. He was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. We still didn't have an agent, so we decided to take Mark up on his offer to meet up. We met him at his office a few weeks later and he spent a few hours learning about us and what we were looking for in our property search. The experience was very positive and he laid out the entire process in a clear and concise way.


Mark helped us navigate everything from viewings, to writing and negotiating offers to finally closing on a property. He was there to help at every step of the way and made sure to coordinate all aspects of the buying process. In a market like this, you need a person like Mark who is persistent and dedicated to his craft. We couldn't have done it without him.


We highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a property. He puts in the hard work and makes sure you are taken care of at every step of the way. We'll be contacting Mark when we are ready to sell.

Mark Truly Puts your Interests First!

I was so glad to have met Mark at an open house in SF. I was hitting up all the open houses I could -looking to see what was available in my price range. I am a super do-it-yourselfer but knew I would need an agent for any next steps. I had seen a lot of agents but I really felt Mark was the right fit for me. I wound up finding my place on an open house so I called Mark for advice and next steps. 

Mark went out of his way to bend to my crazy work schedule and helped me through not only the buying process, negotiations and liase with mortgage brokers- but also helped me when I had to leave for an international work trip while trying to close and move simultaneously.

I can't say enough great things about Mark he will truly put your interests first - he is the most caring and genuine person you will feel you are in good hands!

Mark is Simply the Best!

As a single woman and first-time buyer in a competitive market, I felt lucky to have Mark by my side. He took the time to get to know me and my tastes and went out of his way to tailor the house hunting experience to my needs and personality quirks. We spent a little over a year working together and during that time, he remained responsive, supportive and encouraging. He never pushed me when I hesitated or got cold feet. He explained things clearly, honestly and directly. I also felt like Mark's connections and relationships with others in the local real estate community gave me an edge over other buyers. Selling agents love him (a big advantage!) and he connected me with the right mortgage broker and worked closely with him to make sure everything would be ready when we found the right place. When we finally made an offer on the home I own today, he remained calm and laser focused on negotiating the best outcome for me. Mark is simply the best, and I wouldn't be the happy homeowner I am without him.
