“We have had the pleasure of working with Mark Markelz several times over the past few years. First we bought a house with him as our agent, then sold our house, bought a new house and rented a house in between. Each time Mark worked diligently as our agent to complete the transaction and every time it was a very smooth process thanks to Mark. Mark is excellent with communication; I was always able to get a hold of him quickly through e-mail, phone calls and sms text messages. Mark SOLD our house in January 2010 (in a terrible market) in less than 2 weeks. He is excellent at what he does and I can’t imagine that there is anyone out there that is better at real estate than Mark. Mark continues to assist me today no matter what my needs are including finding me land surveyors as well as top notch general contractors. Thank you for all of your help over the years Mark…we really appreciate it!”

“Mark Markelz handled the sale of our house. We must say that he was on top of everything at every moment. He kept track of the status at all times – checking with lawyers, holding our hand when needed (this was the first sale of our home). He certainly went the extra mile to make sure that we were comfortable, well informed and knew what to do and when to do it. His suggestions were invaluable. From the moment we asked him to handle our sale to the closing of the sale, he was always available. All phases of the sale were efficiently handled, open houses were good, prospective buyers came and in just a few weeks (it seemed as if it were immediately) a deposit was made and the rest is history. Any seller will certainly appreciate the very active approach Mark takes in making his sale – quickly and efficiently. Thanks to Mark M. for getting our sale done and helping us get on with our move.”

“Housing crisis? Really? In August of 2009, when we decided to list our house for sale, we were told by friends and family that we were crazy. After all, we were in the midst of difficult economic times with declining wages, declining house values and rising unemployment. The indicators were that there could not be a worse time to sell our house. The one thing that our friends and family did not factor into this equation was our Realtor, Mark Markelz. Through Mark’s diligence and determination, our house was SOLD in 2 weeks! His clever marketing, local realty connections and constant communication with us and other parties involved in the process made our experience extremely positive. During our purchase process, we again benefited from Mark’s experience and diligence as he worked tirelessly to help find our present house. Mark’s advice during the bidding process, his initial leg-work tracking down new listings and his eternal patience was a huge comfort during an otherwise stressful process. We cannot be more enthusiastic in our recommendation of Mark Markelz. His experience, his creativity, his organization and his diligence will undoubtedly meet anyone’s realty needs. Thanks Mark!”

“I chose Mark Markelz to represent me in the home real estate market for the usual right reasons: I had known him for years as a fellow member of my church; I had seen his consistent efforts to advertise properties in the newspaper where I worked; he had clearly developed his career into arenas of increasing responsibility and results. Little did I know, however, that shortly after signing my listing contract with Mark I would discover even more crucial reasons for selecting him. Within a month of signing the listing with Mark, I learned that I would require cardiac surgery. This sent me out our town to Boston during the crucial spring market for an entire month. During that time, Mark became the steward of my property. His experience and savvy provided him with an uncanny sense of reality about the current status of the real estate market. And his sense of commitment to his client was a great foundation for his ethical and efficient handling of the details of the transaction. It was very comforting to work with such a professional person as Mark. Amazingly, during the entire time I was in Boston (4 weeks), I never once spoke with him. He communicated entirely with my son who lives in Boston. In fact, the final deal was carved out and signed off during his interim. I can’t go so far as to say that Mark is a mind reader (no one is!), but he certainly has a realistic, workable handle on how to make things happen in an ever-changing real estate climate.”
Mark was incredibly knowledgeable, and equally important, honest, about the areas we were looking and the properties we were looking at. His experience and skill was most evident on getting the deal back on track after a title issue threatened to end it.
I’m working on getting a job in NYC. I am looking at Fairfield County for a home and Mark has been amazing in showing me the area and homes in my budget range.
He talks very straight–I never caught him in any realtor doubletalk that one often hears.
He spent a lot of his time taking me to homes and discussing pros and cons of certain areas and homes.
I signed him as my buyer’s agent and have never regretted it.
Mark has been a pleasure to work with. He was informative upon preparing our house for listing. He advised us as to what work would be appropriate to do and what jobs were not necessary. He knows the market well and provided us with comparables that helped us make the decision on an appropriate price. Mark prepared a beautiful pamplet to display our property. He conducted an Open House within 4 days of listing the home. We received two offers shortly after the open house and one resulted in the sale of our house. It was on the market for 6 days prior to having a deal that led to the sale within 6 weeks.
Mark has also been proactive in keeping us informed on properties that we have been looking to buy. Mark has been a great communicator. He keeps us informed every step of the way.
I have never been so satisfied with a Realtor since I’ve worked with Mark Markelz!! He was so very helpful and willing to work with everyone to get the job done. Even after the services were completed in Fairfield, CT he still stayed in contact to make sure even after the transaction was completed everything was okay. I would definitely work with him again and recommend him to my family and friends!
Mark was selected by me because of his professionalism and great respect within the real estate market. He is very friendly and understands your needs.
I worked with Mark to find and buy my first house. I wanted ideally a newly constructed home, not too far from the town center in Southport or Fairfield, and I didn’t want to pay a fortune for it. And Marked helped us find exactly what we wanted. Also, since this was our first house, I was not sure what to expect from the process, and Mark really helped us through. He explained what the mortgage process looks like and helped me connect with a good mortgage broker and a closing lawyer; and the whole process turned out very smooth. I really enjoyed working with Mark, and recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great agent knowledgeable in this area.
I’ve been working with Mark Markelz for about 2 years now and all I can say is …WOW! He’s just great to work with as he has sold my mothers house, got a rental for my brothers house and got me a house as well!! Plus he’s got one great sense of humor with the ability of a Realtor to get things done. He has done everything above and beyond our expectations and is truly honest with us. With his experience in the marketplace of real estate and his ability to get the job done I’d highly recommend anyone buying or selling their home in the near future.
I first used Mark Markelz’s services 2 years ago to buy and sell my home…EXCELLENT SERVICE! I won’t use anyone else to buy or sell my homes. Mark really goes above and beyond to get the job done right. I’ve used him with several transactions and each time knowing if I needed to buy or sell a home he’d be my first phone call. If you’re in Connecticut I’d recommend you do the same!
Mark’s pricing and timing strategies got my house sold in 2 weeks. He is the most responsive, knowledgeable and resourceful real estate professional you will ever meet. When buying, his excellent guidance on what to offer and how to position the terms got my offer accepted the same day in a very competitive market.
“Nothing but praise for Mark. Excellent agent, genuine and sincere. A real asset.”
“Mark was very professional and very understanding about my Mom’s situation.”
“Promptly received a Market Analysis report from agent, Mark Markelz. We priced the house accordingly and received valuable staging ideas from Mark. Offers started being presented after the first open house!”
“Enjoyed working with Mark and have dealt with him in the past we have both sold and bought a house with him and would highly recommend him.”
“Mark helped us find exactly what we wanted. And the process was seamless, from the moment we walked into the door of Mark’s office to the moment we walked into the door of our new house!”
“William Raveis and Mark Markelz did a wonderful job assisting my wife and I in buying our first home. They were thoughtful, prompt, helpful but most of all catered to the needs of our individual situation. We would recommend WR and MM to as many people as we can because they were a true team which is undoubtedly needed in the home buying process.”
