Without warning, we found ourselves either buying a home in less than 30 days or being homeless. I can't tell you how lucky we were to find Mark at an open house he was hosting for another realtor. He saved us from an incredibly trying position. Not only holding off pressure from our landlord who wanted us to buy their property for far more than it was worth, but also helping us find our new home. If we contacted Mark, no matter what time of day, he was there for us, often within minutes of us reaching out to him. His knowledge of the local area market and extensive contacts with inspectors, appraisers, title companies, vendors, and other professionals is incredible. And those he recommends have been consistently the most capable, professional, and helpful people we've known.
His insight and acumen about market prices were proven spot-on to us over and over again. And when we found the home we wanted, he managed to not only get us the price we wanted, but also the assurance we weren't getting any unpleasant surprises. Amazingly, he even got us moved into our new home before closing was completed. This almost unheard-of feat honestly saved us more in moving costs than he likely made in commission. Mark cares deeply about both his customers and his industry and takes pride in consistently providing nothing but the highest quality professional service. I cannot recommend him highly enough. And while I have no plans to move, I know that if I ever do, I will never make the mistake of working with anyone else.
We highly recommend Marc, knowledgeable, patient, extremely professional, and a first-class communicator, who listened to and understood our needs. He was an incredible support throughout the process always going above and beyond our expectations. A superb 'find' as a realtor.
Marc was and is phenomenal! When considering selling your home, or even buying, you’re often left With the uncertainty of who best to represent you as your agent. I floated the question on social media among my friends or colleagues and the one name to be referenced multiple times was Marc Cowan. With no exaggeration, Marc is a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. Marc was always a phone call away and always in constant contact giving updates and detailing his strategy for the next week.
From the introduction to sale, Marc worked tirelessly and effectively to sell my house – even getting his hands dirty to weed out my patio. Marc also understands the DMV market, how to best present home to get the best possible price and meet the seller's expectations. Marc's other asset is that he approaches his business as building a relationship, not a one-off interaction. I will definitely look for Marc to help me with my next home and will continue to be my endorsement for a realtor to all my friends and colleagues.
Marc was amazing to work with and helped us navigate the entire buying process. From meeting him at an open house to working together and eventually completing a purchase, he was very knowledgeable and very professional. We would highly recommend him!
From the moment we met, Marc was a consummate professional. He was friendly and engaging and got to know us as a couple to better understand the home we were looking for. My husband and I had experience buying a home, but it had been more than a decade and was in a very different market, so we appreciated Marc's guidance and expertise in the DC metro market. Marc made himself available at all hours of the day and night to answer our questions.
Our primary goal was to find a house with good bones that we could remodel to make it ours. Marc showed us several homes in the area and discussed remodel potential of several of them. When we found the one, Marc worked to get our many questions about the property answered by contacting the listing agent. Marc utilized his powerful negotiation skills to get us a great deal on the price and we couldn't be happier. He made the entire experience of house hunting and home buying a joy. Marc helped us find our perfect home and became our friend in the process.
Marc was a dream to work with! From the first impression to my closing, Marc was professional, dependable, responsive, and overall the total package. Additionally, Marc was very intuition about the DC market and sold my condo after only 1 open house and got a $30,000.00 over the list price. He's a professional, a gentleman and now I can say, friend! I would highly recommend using Marc to help you sell your home or find you a new one.
