Mark's Reviews

4.8 Stars - 32 Reviews
Buying - Joppa, Maryland May 2018
"I met Mark almost two years ago at an open house. Most people we met, were not very interested in talking with us since our move date was far away. Mark not only spoke with us at length the first day, but he stayed in touch with us throughout our journey. He checked in, or just called to say hello and when it came time, Mark was the only person we wanted to work with for our mortgage. Mark is very knowledgeable, responsive and a great person to work with. If things were stressful, he was calm and collected, and always made us feel at ease. Thank you again Mark!"

"Everything very well."
Buying - Brooklyn, Maryland October 2020
"The processes of buying a home can be stressful as we all know. My experiences was a very unexpected and troublesome. I appreciate Mark's commitment to working on holidays/events when completing task that were at hand. However, I felt that I wasn't getting the answer I needed midway and towards the end of my loan process. Although he would always answer calls, he could/would not give me time frames, estimated down payments, and future problems I could except. I exchanged my third party homeowners insurance company with Mark and they said they had a hard time receiving information from him. The settlement date changes made this process awful. I had five settlements dates which was not expected. I personally feel Mark didn't know the Maryland mortgage program would push our original settlement date back by a month but the communication regarding this issue was lacking. He is a smart enough guy to know that pushing my settlement date 2-3 business days ahead wasn't enough time for the MMP, causing frustration and aggravation. The portal I used was not set up correctly for me to upload files. I would never receive any updates. I was the one that had to make phone calls and send emails to get half-ass answer. Thank you"
