Mark helped us find our first home in Smyrna. He is very patient and started by showing us a wide variety of homes in our price range and areas of interest, to better understand what we were looking for. Mark helped us get a feel for the value of some of the houses we were looking at by bringing research on comparable homes to our views of homes.
Once the process of buying the house started, Mark was able to explain the process to us so that we knew what to expect, at least so far as the stressful home buying process can be expected.
Mark is very personable and we did not feel pressured to purchase any particular home.
Mark was able to point out both pros and cons of nearly every property we looked at and was a big help in making us feel like we were making the right choices. He is a long time resident of Cobb County and knows the local areas really well, so he will be able to help you find some of the out of the way neighborhoods you might want to consider.
If we have any complaints, it is about the home listing tool used by Mark and Metro Brokers, which did not allow for the kind of granularity in home selections we wanted (i.e. no stucco) and we ended up looking through listings for homes that we had already disqualified based on some criteria we had already, so you may wish to have Mark review any listings before sending them to you if you have a similar set of 'No house with XXX' requirements.
Mark was able to meet with us an accommodate some shifting schedules near the end of the process, which really helped us make sure no deadlines were missed.
