"I "met" Mark while surfing the web. We used his website for months before we were ready to start looking for a home. He met with me and offered knowledge and expertise, especially since we weren't sure what area around Portland we wanted to land. I appreciated his manner and professionalism right away.

He was always prompt with communication and negotiations went smoothly. Give him a call!"
