In the past five years, we have bought two homes and sold one. In 2010, we decided to move out of DC and buy a home in Silver Spring. Then, late last year, we decided to sell our home and purchase a new one. For all three transactions, we have had the amazing Mark Meyerdirk as our real-estate agent. As anyone who has been through the process knows, buying and selling real estate can be stressful. For us, the easiest part was engaging Mark to represent us. Bringing him on board was the best decision we could have ever made.
Mark is one of the kindest, most committed, and most informed agents we have ever met. Throughout our real-estate transactional process, he offered us honest advice, responded at a moment’s notice to our questions, was ready and willing to show us properties whenever we were free (mainly evenings and weekends), and always provided us with realistic expectations founded in sound research and knowledge of the markets we were entering and exiting.
In the end, Mark spent many long hours with our whole family—escorting us, our parents, our daughter, and close friends—to and from the neighborhoods where we were looking to buy. He was extremely punctual, patient, and thorough in walking us through properties, never once making us feel in the least bit pressured into making a decision with which we were uncomfortable.
At a time of great unpredictability in the real-estate industry, Mark helped us pull off something seemingly impossible: finding our dream home and lining up a buyer for our outgoing home at the same time—and that too within a few short weeks of our initiating our search. He sold our property in record time, handled any issues that arose with extraordinary finesse, and expertly negotiated a tremendous deal on both our old and new homes.
At every turn, Mark was available to us to address our real-estate needs, bending over backwards and working around the clock to get our deals done. We simply could not have asked for better representation. Our only hope is that Mark is still brokering real estate in the area when we sell our home in thirty years and retire to the Caribbean!
