"The VDB team under Mark and Peggy’s leadership is resourceful, professional, and personable. We were introduced to the whole team soon after we approached Peggy with our listing request. The team members are upbeat and friendly. During the near six-month process, we encountered with various team members from photographers to marketing staff to director of operation, and everyone of them was knowledgeable, positive, and extended us with excellent customer service. Mark and Peggy visited our home earlier on. They are both great listeners and are willing to hear our needs and concerns. They provided us with excellent advices based on their local market expertise and insights. They spent time answering our questions and providing objective data patiently. We would highly recommend them as your real estate resource."
"Mark von der Burg has been our realtor for several years now and has helped us buy and sell several residential properties including our home for 14 years, River Run Ranch. River Run Ranch is a unique property and required a buyer with specific needs. Through Mark’s efforts in helping us prepare the Ranch for sale and in presenting the ranch to the market using the best marketing materials and marketing presentation we were able to find the right buyer. Mark has greater knowledge of the real estate market than anyone I know of, and he works hard to take care of his clients. When we needed to purchase an interim home on short notice, Mark was able to help us find a home in only a couple of days and then secure the purchase over multiple other offers. Mark will give you the personal attention you can’t always get from other realtors. His integrity and high ethical and professional standards are reflected in his work. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone."
"We have bought two homes and sold two homes with Mark so far. Mark was very professional and knowledgeable in our transactions, and was highly regarded by his peers, which made the transaction proceed smoothly. We would not work with Mark four times unless we had complete confidence in his ability to get the job done. We wouldn't hesitate to refer him to our friends and family, or work with him again in the future."
"We selected Mark to assist us with the sale of our home and worked with him for about 8 weeks from the initial interview to select an agent through closing. There are many aspects of working with Mark that set him apart from other agents. His investment in preparing the house for the sale and the production of marketing materials is much greater than any other agent we interviewed. The quality of the materials was exceptional. Mark's professionalism was apparent at every stage of the process. He maintained almost daily contact to keep us appraised of progress and assist us with closing. During the process we realized that the team Mark has assembled to assist him were a critical component of his service. Every member of his team with whom we worked demonstrated the same level of professionalism, competency and dedication to a successful sale that Mark demonstrated from our first contact. In retrospect we cannot imagine being better served in selling our home."
"To say that you and your team were a pleasure to work with would be a gross understatement. It's hard to envision a sale, much less completion of the transaction without the total professionalism, competence and responsiveness of your whole team. Mark, without your contacts we would still be floundering. You really are a full service team. We're convinced there is no better real estate sales team and are very grateful to have had this experience with you. You made a very difficult process look easy. Many thanks."
"We've used Mark and his team more times than we can count--both buying and selling homes. We appreciate the expertise, the market-knowledge and how every detail is handled from start to finish. Someone is always available whether we have a quick question or a genuine crisis. The last two homes we sold with Mark were under contract the first weekend! We will absolutely use Mark and his team again and we always recommend them."
"'Positive' doesn’t describe enough our experience with Mark and his team. Wow. We are so happy with Mark – his knowledge, pleasant attitude, patience, and experience brought us the best in both our sale and our purchase. He knew what to do when and also went to bat for us after the sale was final. We couldn’t be more pleased, we are so grateful!"
"In the past five years, Mark has handled five transactions for us. Mark and his team are the most professional and over the top we have had the pleasure to work with. We have recommended him on several occasions and he is a true asset to your company."
"Mark was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. The thing that assisted us most was his knowledge of the area. If I were to describe the service I received from Mark, I would simply say PERFECT! "
"Thank you for making our dream home a reality. Your knowledge and ability to negotiate made all the difference and was key in closing the deal. "
"Mr. von der Burg truly represents the best in the profession! Mark represented us to buy our current home and he also represented us to sell our previous home. From the first time we met, Mark showed exceptional ability to listen to our needs, and he has great understanding of the market. Mark is always going for the extra mile in negotiations, showings, meeting with appraisers, inspectors, or other brokers with the clear focus on providing the best service for us. Mark is extremely well organized and his effort to achieve perfection are evident by the extraordinary team work from every staff member in his office. Both of our real estate transactions proceeded smoothly. We are fortunate to have Mark as our representative."
"Mark is an ultimate pro!! We trusted him implicitly in every aspect of selling our Bellevue home and buying our Carnation home. His honesty and sincerity constantly put us at ease. He patiently answered all of our questions no matter how crazy they may have seemed! We knew he would handle all aspects of our move with professionalism. It was very comforting to put everything in his capable hands and know it would be expertly handled. "
"Our family has worked successfully with Mark von der Burg and his team on several transactions for over twenty years. They represent a true level of quality and professionalism throughout the entire buying/selling process. Their approach begins with developing a detailed real estate market analysis, personal interviews and team introductions to activate the transaction process. Throughout the selling process qualified appointments and results are managed on a timely and consistent basis. Most important, Mark displays a level of patience, guidance and honesty that makes the process more pleasant and with minimum stress. We truly recommend VDB for any future real estate investment opportunity."
"The VDB team made selling our home a great experience! Not only did our house sell in 5 days it sold for well over asking price! We highly recommend VDB Realtors to our family and friends who are looking for a great team to make buying or selling their homes a great experience."
