|Mark helped us sell our house in Kirkland. The sale process went really well. We were super happy with it. I think our first offer was within 24 hours and we sold the house within a week for almost 10% over the asking price. We were very happy and it really made the process of moving on to the next step [of looking for a new home] even better.|
If anyone out there is looking for a real estate agent who really knows the pressures you're under in a really hot market and how to sell your house for the right price and negotiate when you have a bidding war (which we had) and has expertise in that area really helps you because it's a stressful time and you need someone behind you to help you through that. I highly recommend Mark Griswold for any real estate transactions.
|Mark listed our condo for a little less than $1.5 million. It sold in two days and the contract was signed in three. It was a very quick sale at well over asking, which was the best part, but the amazing part was that, while we were listing it, Mark told us we were likely to get $100,000 more than what we were asking and it turned out we got $110,000 so he was pretty darn accurate. He was less than 1% off on his market analysis, which was amazing. He's a great person to work with, pleasant demeanor, and very professional, very helpful, and knows his stuff. We recommend Mark highly.|
|Mark Griswold served as the listing agent for the sale of our house in Issaquah. My wife and I are very happy with the service that Mark provided. |
When going through our house prior to listing, Mark was very attentive to the condition of the house and made great recommendations regarding how to prepare the house for listing. We had some notions going into the process about things that needed to be done to make the home marketable. The recommendations that Mark made were less involved than what we had anticipated before we contracted with him. We were pleased with his recommendation that we do LESS than what we thought needed doing.
During the process of getting the house ready for showing, Mark was very attentive to the process of cleaning the house, cleaning the yard, and staging the interior.
Most importantly, Mark was very knowledgeable regarding the market situation in our neighborhood and worked with us so that we could understand the existing situation and arrive at a mutually agreeable listing price.
Once the house was listed, Mark stayed on top of the situation. He attended the brokers’ open, and manned two open houses over the weekend.
When multiple offers were in hand, based on the open house showings, Mark walked us diligently through the process which led to a successful offer acceptance and sale closure.
The time of our listing, and the market in our neighborhood, made us very happy that Mark was able to correctly price the house, and successfully bring the sale to a conclusion. I would definitely recommend Mark as an agent that will give great customer service to his clients.
|Mark and Wendy and their team at the Lister Group did a fantastic job in helping me with the purchase of a new home and the sale of my previous home. Throughout both transactions, they were in constant communication, letting me know what the next steps would be.|
With the purchase of my new home, Mark successfully negotiated a back up offer so that when the original purchasers backed out, I was first in line. I never would have purchases my dream house if it was not for Mark's guidance and persistence.
And with the sale of my previous home, they did an even more impressive job, coordinating with contractors to get the home ready to list, marketing it to the surrounding neighborhood and beyond, and bringing in their own staging furniture to make the home really shine. As a result, I received a full priced offer the first weekend and closed in less than a month. The team went above and beyond what I ever expected a realtor to do.
I would not hesitate to hire Mark, Wendy, and their team again.
|My husband and I used Mark as an agent in purchasing a new home and it was a great experience. Although I was super excited to look for a house, it got a little nerve-racking with the market being as hot as it was and a lot of the houses we would look at were coming off the market faster than we could even get to go see them but Mark did a great job of keeping us informed all the time, making sure we saw all the houses that were coming on the market every day. He was always keeping us informed. He was always available anytime we needed him and he made the process a lot easier and smooth for us. We were in a situation where we had to sell our house in order to purchase another one so as soon as our house sold, time was of the essence and Mark really understood that and made sure that he was really clued in on all the things we really wanted in our new home and what we were looking for and made sure we were only seeing houses that fit our criteria and kept the process smooth, expedited quickly, and, again, was always available at any time. So I would highly recommend Mark to anybody who is looking to purchase a new home. Even if you are not sure what you are looking for or just need help, Mark is just a great resource as well as a great real estate agent.|
