He insists upon quality and integrity in himself and in his team of expert associates. This shows in everything he does and results in rave reviews from past clients. This dedication, along with 25 years of experience selling real estate, provides the expertise that allows him to represent a home unlike any other. When it comes to getting the highest price for your home, he gets the job done.
Mark is skilled at setting your home apart, showing how its unique benefits raise it above and beyond the rest of the homes that flood the market. As the exclusive listing agent for Steven D. Smith Construction, the Northwest's premier luxury home builder, for the past 24 years, he has intimate knowledge of every component that goes into a home. He uses this knowledge of luxury homes to educate fellow agents and prospective buyers, showing them that homes are not carbon copies, giving your home the attention it deserves in a market too often distracted by the discounted competition. Fellow agents respect him and know that when they have luxury home buyers he is the first one to call. When it comes to marketing, there is simply no comparison. Mark spends more money, time, and energy on marketing than any other agent. Using only professional graphic designers to create printed advertising, he is ahead of other agents by leaps and bounds. He recognizes the importance of quality professional photography and its effect of increased interest in the home by agents and prospective buyers alike. Professional videography and virtual 3D tours gives our For Sale homes a refined, competitive edge, as part of something we like to call The VDB | Compass Advantage.
Our custom home brochures and flyers make a noticeable difference in creating a "wow factor" that matches your home's brilliance, making it that much more memorable to those who see your home. He advertises in lifestyle publications that are read by the luxury buyer, rather than simply using lesser methods of exposure. He also markets to fellow agents, sending both postcards and emails featuring your home to thousands of real estate agents who work with buyers in our area.
Mark has assembled a team of service-oriented individuals who have proven their ability to get the job done. This provides for quicker responses, a smoother transaction, and an all-around more pleasing experience, keeping you informed every step of the way. While you can be assured that Mark will always be your first line of contact but it is nice to know that there is an entire team working to help you sell your home.
At the end of the day, it's all about results. The proof is in the homes sold above market value, the testimonials from clients raving about how satisfied they are with the service provided, and the awards Mark has received for being in the top 1% of all agents nationwide.
