Since I met Mark Shipley 20 years ago, he has been the only realtor I’ve trusted to purchase my residences and investment properties, and whom I refer family and friends. He provides invaluable guidance in all facets of the home buying and selling processes, including helping work with the lender, title co, buyer/seller agent, house repair services, and property management.
My latest experience with Mark involved purchasing a new residence at beginning of 2022 and renting out my previous residence. First, Mark got me set up with a trusted lender that worked with me to determine monthly payments and other items. Second, I was in competition for the specific property I wanted. Mark presented a letter to the seller agent promoting my qualifications, which turned out to be instrumental in the seller accepting my offer over others. Third, he provided referrals for the remodeling I wanted to complete. Fourth, he was there every step of the way through closing to provide advice and answer questions. After closing, he pivoted from being my agent to then my property manager for my existing residence. He promoted my rental, provided guidance for readying the property, and ultimately identified a quality renter.
I do not start any real estate endeavor without Mark’s assistance. Suggest you do the same.
