    Mark was personally recommended to me as someone who could be of real help in appraising my property of interest and subsequently representing me at auction.
    He made time to meet for an initial chat over coffee. I was immediately impressed and relaxed with his easy and honest nature, as well as his willingness to listen to my needs.
    A genuinely nice bloke... well experienced in the RE scene, totally committed to helping his clients.... all in all, a very worthwhile experience.

Without Marks' expertise in Real Estate of the area, we would have struggled to buy in such a short time frame. Mark was also excellent at communicating with us. We spoke many times a day to get the deal done. Money well spent when our time was limited. Thanks again to you Mark.
