“Markus did a great job for us. In today’s market it can be challenging to find and purchase a property that meets your needs. Markus was able to find us that property after learning what our needs were. Not only did he find us our second home (condo), but we also had an offer in on the property within the first few hours of it being listed. Being from out of state, he was not only helpful with video walk throughs, info on the area and appt. flexibility, but also went above and beyond with other info outside of the condo purchase. Would definitely recommend!”

He did a great job!
