We hired Mark to assist in the sale of my father's condo, after my father was moved into a care facility. We do not live in Chilliwack, but Mark kept in touch with us via email and text. We were even able to sign some documents electronically, which really saved us the time and expense of travelling to Chilliwack. The condo market was slow at the time, but Mark did a great job of marketing and showing the condo to potential buyers, until it eventually sold. I would recommend Mark to sellers or buyers; he was a real pleasure to deal with.
Mark is not only a great Real Estate agent but also values family, friends and life. He has always taken the time, without any hesitation, to run over any questions that we may have and has made the home buying experience extremely smooth, enjoyable and rewarding! He and his team provide an extremely valuable service and we will and always do recommend him to anybody who is interested in real estate. Thanks for everything that you guys do and have done for us!
Mark Andersen is the best realtor we have ever had-bar none!!
Having said this, you should know we have moved 10 times in our 30 years together and have dealt with a variety of realtors-none as professional or as efficient as Mark Andersen. This purchase was our best experience by far. Mark made what was a high stress life change (due to the current conditions of the market here in the lower mainland) an easy stress free process. His knowledge of the area and his ability to read his clients needs are an asset when looking for a home, especially when we were new to Chilliwack from out of province.
We would enthusiastically recommend Mark to anyone looking to buy or sell their next home. He is trustworthy, professional, and very knowledgeable. Kelsey his assistant is a gem and so very helpful-they are a winning team!!
~Ken and Teresa
Recently we hired Mark Andersen to handle the sale of our home in Chilliwack. During the process, we had opportunity to meet many agents from several other local/national real estate companies. We found Mark to be very professional yet personable and approachable – understanding our individual needs, desires for selling as well as our expectations for the entire process. Having also, an understanding of the stresses of life involved in selling and relocating out of province, Mark was very supportive and encouraging – even after having settled in our new home after the move. Many of the other agents/companies we met, were impersonal, cold and some you could not tell if they were client or agent in dress and mannerisms. These would do themselves and their companies well to learn this type of professionalism and personalism from Mark. Mark was honest and up-front in every aspect of the sale and negotiations during the process. In addition to these characteristics, his partner, Kelsey, did a fabulous job with the photography and production involved for the most professional and high quality feature brochure we have ever seen. My only regret is that they were not a part of the purchase of our new home out of province. I know it would have been a much better experience that it turned out to be.
Mark and Kelsey, thank you both for the efforts you put forth to make our sale successful!
~Jacob & Robin
Mark Andersen was an excellent choice as my realtor. Though having several offers over the months it was on the market, Mark let me decide on the one I was comfortable with. He did not pressure me to respond to an offer that was too low.
Also the brochure and photographic presentation of my home was amazing. My home looked to it's best advantage.
Mark was always upbeat, always encouraging and professional. I recommend Mark and his team to sell your home. You deserve the best!
Choosing a good realtor is nearly as hard as finding your dream home. We were fortunate enough to have accomplished both working with Mark. From day one Mark was receptive to our needs as to the type of home we were looking for and the area that we wished to settle in. His knowledge of the local real estate market and his close ties to colleagues in the industry allowed us to look at homes that met our needs in an efficient and very well organized manner. This made the decision process in settling on our new home easy and with confidence that we had made the right choice. The lines of communication were always open with Mark from beginning until move in day and beyond. Mark is a true stand out in his profession and we cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed working with him through the process of finding and purchasing our new home.
~Brad & Heather
Mark was an excellent choice to sell my Mom’s home. He lives in the area and was able to price my Mom’s home fairly to achieve a sale and knew the features of living in that neighbourhood. I live out of town and Mark made it so easy to connect and do business together. He looked after everything including picking up and dropping off documents and keys for me. I would absolutely recommend Mark to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
We were coming from Manitoba to purchase a house in the Chilliwack area. We did not have much time to do this. We gave Mark a list of houses that we were interested in viewing. Mark lined up a great and efficient schedule for us. He listened to what we were looking for and understood the time line we had to complete this. We were getting worried as none of the houses seemed to be what we were looking for. Mark was patient and understanding and assured us we would keep looking until we found the house that suited us. Mark was friendly and easy going, very easy to talk to and share our concerns. In the end, we found a house that we were happy with and the process went smoothly. I would definitely use Mark again if the need arose, or recommend him to others.
~Clayton & Laura
Is Mark a great realestate agent? Absolutely, and he is even better than that! Trust us and work with him. Mark came through for us; he will come through for you!
We were referred to Mark through a friend when we embarked upon our quest to find our retirement home in Chilliwack. We met him, talked about our needs and wants, and quickly developed a comfortable rapport with him, so we hired him, so to speak. Mark showed us houses in different neighbourhoods based on our budget. We narrowed it down to a few and then.... we let him do his job. The listings started to come in and one day... he found the home that exceeded our expectations. We offered, they countered, we... well, to make a long story short, Mark guided us through the process, and we got our dream home!
Like we did, let Mark help you find your dream home! You won't be sorry!
~Brian & Sheila
My wife and I found the Mark Andersen Team to be both thorough and professional in selling our home as well as finding us a new home. Their marketing strategy led to the expeditious sale of our existing home and allowed us to move just as quickly in our new purchase.
~Paul & Kendra
If you need to sell your home, Mark is definitely the one to call. I was beyond pleased with my experience! Mark was personable, pleasant, knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Mark worked very hard to sell my home and I would highly recommend him to friends and family. He was easy to talk to and listened to my needs. Thank you for the fantastic experience Mark.
Thank you to Mark (and Kelsey!) for helping through the hurdles, walking us newbies through the process of buying our very first home. We know you went to a lot of effort to make sure we felt comfortable and understood the ins and outs. We are very grateful, and are pleased as could be with our new place.
~Gabe & Molly
It is my pleasure to share my own personal experience with Mark Andersen as my realtor. I definitely made the right decision to not only to list my home with ReMax as my agency of choice, but more specifically have Mark Andersen as my realtor. I first have to say that my previous home had been listed for over two years when I changed realtors to Mark Andersen and he sold it in only a few months. His dedication and commitment to his clients is commendable. Seven months later I decided to buy my own home and it was no question with whom I would be listing it with. This was the first time I had purchased a home on my own and I had to put total trust in Mark to guide me through the process and I wasn't disappointed.
I found Mark to be a very up front and honest man and his actions supported his words! He was punctual for all our scheduled meetings or appointments and prepared to answer all my questions. Being this was my first purchasing experience I had several questions and I found him to be very knowledgeable in his field. Mark always responded to my phone calls or emails in a timely manner with the information I had requested. I had complete confidence that Mark would would assist me with this process until the final paperwork was done. Mark also made a home visit once I was settled in my new home to ensure I was satisfied with everything and ask if I had any questions.
Mark is a very friendly and personable man and I would not hesitate to have him assist me again in the future and I would highly recommend him and the services he provides. As a client, I felt that I mattered and my satisfaction and peace of mind was a priority.
Mark took very good care of us through the whole process. We were living out of province and were not able to come out to handle any of the details. Mark took care of everything and made sure we didn't have to worry about the details. We hadn't even seen the house we bought before we took possession but we trusted Mark when he told us it would be a good house for our family, and he was right. I couldn't recommend him enough, he took so much of the stress off in what was a stressful time for us.
~Ian & Rebecca
I have dealt with Mark on another home purchase and was so impressed by his personality and genuine nature that he was the only one I wanted to deal with on the sale of my home. Mark always goes the extra distance to make sure the process is stress free and seamless. He is the type of person who you would want as a friend as well as a realtor.
We were referred to Mark because of the positive reputation he has established in Chilliwack. Mark helped us buy and sell two homes with confidence. We were able to draw on Mark's knowledge of the city and his experience as a Realtor throughout the process. During our most recent home sale, we were so pleased with the photos Mark's assistant took for our listing that we almost reconsidered selling our house. Our Real Estate deals with Mark all went smoothly and we would recommend Mark to our mothers.
~Trevor and Joanna
Mark is definitely one of the top realtor professionals and we were very happy with his help. Mark's words are always followed by his actions.
~Jason & Crystal
Mark provided exceptional service as our realtor for the sale of our house. He advised, informed, counselled and reacted all in a friendly, courteous manner. We always felt he was on our side and was working in our best interests.
~Al & Elaine
Having Mark work for us as our real estate agent was awesome. Mark was so knowledgeable about the market and what we had to do to really make our home appealing to buysers. What I most appreciated about Mark was how he was willing to help us out whenever we needed his advise and his tips on the best way to stage our house for viewings. Mark took the time to actually go room by room with us and tell us what to put in storage and what to keep and I believe that made a huge difference in how fast we sold our home. I also appreciate how he understood where we wanted to list our home at and that he marketed it hard to try and get us close to our asking price. He was freindly and kind to our children and made sure they were also excited about the sell. This is the first time we have ever sold a home and Mark made this time a very smooth and stress free experience. I have already recommended Mark to many people and would do so in the future without hesitation.
~T.J. & Michelle
It was very refreshing to deal with a Realtor that sets such a high standard of Professionalism.
We noticed that Mark is well respected in the real-estate industry for his professionalism. On more than one occasion we heard other realtors asking him for his opinion on market evaluations. With his extensive knowledge of the market we were completely confident that he had the ability to give an accurate estimation of the current selling price of our property.
Mark helped us sell our unit in a difficult market and was able to help us make the best of our circumstances; the delicate situation of owning 2 properties. Mark is a super communicator and we had confidence dealing with him throughout our whole process and believe that if we didn’t have him working for us we would not be in our home today.
~Mike & Jackie
I have recently completed two purchases with Mark as my real estate agent.
I found Mark to be extremely conscientious in meeting my requests for issues outlined in the Contract of Purchase and Sale that needed to be addressed. In particular, Mark went the extra mile obtaining information from the City of Chilliwack, to ensure that my concerns were met relating to the prospective offers that I had on the properties.
I recently lost my husband and Mark was thoughtful in ensuring that I would not be meeting with anyone alone, always keeping my concerns foremost.
I would highly recommend Mark as a representative for both buying or selling real estate. He was thorough and his excellent interpersonal skills in dealing with the public made him a pleasure to do business with.
We are very picky buyer, and for two years my wife and I searched for our dream home in the Chilliwack Market. For the entire time Mark was patiently by our side. He contacted us when new listings came onto the market and consistently showed us homes that we both felt were possibilities. When we finally found our dream home, he negotiated a fair deal for us, and guided is through the home inspection and closing process with great skill.
Once our purchase was complete, Mark’s expertise as a realtor really came through. He supported us through listing and selling our own townhouse. This is where we can honestly say that without Mark’s knowledge and connections in the Chilliwack Market, we would probably still own that townhouse today. Again, Mark negotiated strongly for us to close the deal.
Mark is highly ethical, patient and we DO routinely recommend him to anyone that we know who needs a realtor.
~Brett & Shar
Due to the recent loss of a parent and the relocation of another, my parent's home of 20 years had to be sold. My emotions were understandably running high. I wasted a couple of months thinking that I could "do it myself" before acknowledging that I needed an actual real estate agent to get it done, and chose Mark Andersen for the job. Mark and I grew up in the same neighbourhood and went to the same schools, and although many years have come and gone since those days, I remembered Mark as a solid character and knew that he had strong community ties, so he seemed like the logical choice. Good call on my part!
Mark knows his stuff and offers an authentic service free from pressure or bogus promises. He is fair and honest and dependable. He kept us informed and faithfully followed through on everything he said he would do. What more could you ask for?Mark was very easy to work with and I appreciated leaving everything in his competent hands.... You will too.
~Betty & Simon
We would be lying if we said that buying our first home was the exciting and easy process that we had hoped for but Mark guided us through the entire process with honesty and dedication. He answered endless emails and questions that we had. Mark helped us through a very difficult deal and lined us up with great people to provide us with legal advice and to answer the questions that he could not. In no way was our purchase more difficult because of Mark, he did absolutely everything in his power for us and then gave some more. It is safe to say that we would not be in our new home if it was not for Mark Andersen, he is a wonderful, hardworking and dedicated realtor that you can trust. He gave everything to get us into our new home and we are forever grateful for that. I would not hesitate at all in referring him to family or friends.
~Cory & Nicole
We are very pleased to recommend Mark Anderson as a real estate agent. He was always extremely prompt at returning emails and at following up on telephone messages. We bought a custom-built house through Mark and during the whole process, he showed genuine care and concern. He was an excellent liaison at all levels and during the better part of a year, he took a personal interest in introducing us to the Chilliwack area giving freely of his time and expertise above and beyond what anyone could expect. We knew we could always rely on Mark and now realize that along the way, he has also become a friend.
~Elizabeth & Doug
We could not be happier with how the sale of our first home went. Mark wasn't promising a sale of thirty thousand dollars above market price like other realtors . He accurately assessed and marketed our home to sell in this market. It didn't sit on the market for years and in little over a month it was sold! He was very professional and always available if we had any questions. We recommend Mark in all aspects of home buying/selling and will definitely use him again!
~Steven & Beth
When it came time to sell my condo and purchase a house, Mark was there to help me find the perfect house that would be perfect for me and my dog.
We have dealt with Mark on two occasions, selling and buying, both went very well. Will certainly be dealing with Mark again in the future. Highly recommend
~Tom & Grace
We met Mark through friends of ours as Mark had sold their homes and were very impressed as are we.
Mark did a very professional job for us and also gave us very wise and helpful suggestions while we were selling our home and getting ready for our new home. No question was a tough question for Mark & there were a lot of them. Mark also has been a great help in finding a new home for our son and family that have just moved here from Ottawa and has made this huge change in their lives much easier and definitely less stressful. We highly recommend Mark and his very professional & patient staff and will continue to do so.
~Dave & Jennifer
Our experience with Mark was excellent. He took care of us like we were family and took a personal interest in our satisfaction with the purchase our first home, even months after the deal was completed. I can't say enough how much Jess and I appreciate his service and work for us. I would, and do, recommend Mark to anyone requiring the services of a real-estate agent.
~Jesse & Jessica
We highly recommend Mark Andersen for your choice of realtor as he is courteous, professional and definitely a cut above the rest.
He has a wonderful calm and pleasant nature and displays honesty and integrity in his dealings with you and potential buyers. Every question was answered promptly and we were never left not knowing what was happening with our house sale. Mark was encouraging and positive through the whole process and went above and beyond, helping us out with things long after we moved to Vancouver.
~Mike & Glenda
Mark was a pleasure to work with to find a home in Chilliwack. He is truly a professional; making one feel like a friend as well as a client.
Moving from New Brunswick was not easy but would have been horrendous without Mark's help and knowledge.Never would have thought of purchasing a home online, but Mark made it easy with many many pictures and his honesty about homes that I had searched out online and inquired about.After many months of hard work on Mark's and his secretary Kelsey's part, we are now happily settling in and looking forward to discovering everything Chillwack has to offer.
My fiancé and I couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Mark. Being first time home buyers we expected it to be a stressful search but thanks to Mark he made it as stress free as possible. Mark was very professional and did a great job working on our behalf to get us our home for a great price. When we decide to sell we know who to call. I would recommend Mark to anyone requiring the services of a Real-Estate agent.
Mark was very helpful in the purchase and sale of our home in Chilliwack. We had never been to the area before and had limited time to make a purchase. Mark listened to what we wanted in a home so that no time was wasted on unsuitable properties. His extensive knowledge of the area and the local real estate market were invaluable tools in helping us make our decision to buy. Good marketing and proper pricing lead to a quick sale of our home when the time came as well. Mark was very easy to get along with and was always available to answer questions. We were dealing with a government move and Mark ensured that all requested paperwork was completed promptly and professionally. We would recommend Mark to anyone needing the services of a realtor.
~Russ & Kristen
Mark did a great job advertising and selling our home, he also made finding our new home a great and easy experience. He was truthful and did everything as promised from the beginning. We are very happy.
~Richard & Shara
We both thought that Mark did a great job selling our house. When we looked at the picture tour that was put together we both thought "wow", why are we selling, this house looks awesome. Mark was very professional in all his dealings with us, and as far as we both are concerned, we have made a great new friend.
~Dwight & Elsie
We greatly appreciate Marks help in finding us our first home! He was very reliable ... very quick with getting back to us regarding information. He went above and beyond just finding us a house... but found us a great home to raise our family. We will absolutely recommend Mark to our family and friends! Thank you for making buying our first home such a great experience!
~Cody & Jennifer
I greatly appreciated the way Mark kept me informed step by step in the sale of my home and the purchase of my new one. His professional knowledge, compassion and honesty really left a lasting impression and I would highly recommend his services to my friends and family.
We were pleased with the level and quality of service Mark provided in selling our home and helping us purchase another. He was positive and enthusiastic in his approach and professional in his manner.
~Don & Janice
Mark made an extremely stressful time in our life feel like a breeze. With moving several thousand miles from Ontario, not knowing anyone or anything about the lower mainland was a challenge for our family that I don't think would have been possible without the professional and courteous service which we received. Mark took the time to listen to our needs, understand our situation and find us a wonderful home in the perfect neighborhood. It's safe to say that our family's happiness in Chilliwack is largely related to the time and effort Mark took to ensure we found the right home. Not only was Mark a great real estate agent, he's become a great friend.
~Jamie & Sarah
This is the 3rd deal that Mark has completed with us. He is very professional and efficient, leaving no stone upturned when finding a property or finding a buyer. He works hard, he has integrity and he gets the job done. His clients interest is his top priority.
~Jarrett & Ashley
Mark made our home-buying experience a real pleasure. He found us our dream home, and then went to bat for us to get it at a price we could afford. His focus on what was important to us and personal attention to each client as individuals is what separates him from other realtors.
~ Danny & Kerri
Mark is incredibly knowledgeable about the Chilliwack area which was very helpful as we searched for a home. He was really patient with us when we changed the direction of our house shopping several times and always made time to answer questions. He was prompt in responding to us and even sought out additional information from his contacts that was useful in making a decision about what areas and homes would fit our needs.
~ Curtis & Pauline
We found Mark to be a very personable, honest and available realtor. His extensive knowledge of this business is an asset to his clients. We have no reservations in recommending him to our family and friends.
~ Paul & Joni
We have used Mark's services on two occasions for purchasing and selling homes. Mark is outstanding - friendly and reliable, and he made the process a simple and straightforward matter. On each occasion, we felt as if our best interests were his primary concern. We have recommended his services to many of our family and friends, and would not hesitate to do so again. Thanks again, Mark!
~ Scott & Andrea
On May 21st, 2010, I had realized a long-awaited dream of becoming a new home owner, after having been transferred to the beautiful community of Chilliwack, BC.
In my capacity as a public servant, relocating on a regular basis is the norm. The work is generally the same, but what keeps me grounded is having a place I can call “home”. It becomes my place of refuge and somewhere I can put my mind at ease from busy schedules.
I canvassed fellow co-workers before hand to find the best realtor possible, and the rave reviews I had of one in particular had me stop at the first recommendation…Mark ANDERSEN of RE/MAX Realty.
Mark’s personality shone through on our first meeting, and I knew I had the right person to help me find the grounding I was looking for. Not only did he give me the room to peruse numerous properties, but he provided excellent insight throughout the process. The time on the clock was never a factor, my questions were promptly answered, whether they be text messages or emails. He was definitely not a Monday to Friday individual. This was much appreciated as my schedule was just as varied.
The personal touches he brought to my home search, such as the new address cards for me to mail out had a picture of the front of my new home along with my new address imprinted within, made this THE best realtor experience I have had in over 10 years of several postings and home searches.
If and when I have to move again, this class act will be very difficult to surpass.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Mark…my home is “home” because of the imprint you have left.
Mark is the best realtor that we’ve ever dealt with. He helped us purchase our home in Chilliwack which included going out of his way to show us around Chilliwack seeing we were from Saskatchewan. Then 2 years later, things changed and we decided to move back to Saskatchewan to be close to our family. Once again, we had Mark as our realtor and this time he went above and beyond our expectations to sell our house. We moved to Saskatchewan for our jobs and were not able to sell our house before leaving since the market fell..so we rented it out, once we re listed the house 10 months later, Mark did the walk through and gave us an update on the condition of the house that our tenant was living in as we could not make the trip from Saskatoon to look after these things. In the end, Mark collected the keys from the renter, did the walk through for us to make sure our tenant did their job cleaning and passed the keys on to the new buyer for us. In our mind Mark went above and beyond our expectations of a realtor….I would recommend Mark Andersen to anyone looking for a great realtor and new friend…..It’s too bad he couldn’t help us out buying our house 2 provinces away. Go Roughriders!!!
