Work with Marcus
I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. My parents both taught at the UW, and as a result, I learned what service to the community is at an early age. This service is central to what I do everyday. As a Realtor, my goal is pretty simple: to Serve My Clients. I do this by treating others how I'd want to be treated, by building trust. I don't believe in sales pitches or pressure, but I will let it be known when it's time to act. But I do believe that each real estate transaction is unique and requires open communication between all parties involved to get a great result.
Having worked with the public so long has taught me a couple important things: Listen to People and Ask Questions. I can't think of a more important place for this than real estate! Buying and selling a home is a big deal. You need someone who you trust and who appreciates your needs, understands the value of a dollar, and is working hard on your side.
Buying a Home
Helping people buy a home is an honor because a home is a sanctuary, a place where memories will be made with friends and family. Being a part of that and doing right by my clients is very powerful to me. This drives me when representing buyers, as my best effort is the minimum I can offer in return for this trust. That means I’m always monitoring what’s available so my clients don't miss their opportunity.
I don’t waste anyone’s time, but I always make time for my clients. We’ll meet and discuss your buying goals, and make a clear plan to get you into the home you want. You will see what is out there so you can clearly understand the market, and you won’t be left wondering what next steps are. The lenders I work with, and other vendors I recommend have been vetted by me, and share my drive for a smooth buying process and building relationships.
Selling a Home
Working with sellers is also an honor. Trust is of the utmost importance. This is a decision that could cost a seller real money and time if done willy- nilly. I understand. If I was thinking of selling my home, what would I look for? It would have to be someone who had my best interests in mind. And I would have to trust them, their process and market knowledge. These things form the basis of how I approach ALL of my clients.
We will go over the market and see how we can work together and reach your goals. There is a tug of war between buyers and sellers, but the concept of leaving memories and the emotion behind selling is also there, something a buyer doesn't see. This is where a straight forward and honest approach will work. If selling doesn’t make sense to us after formulating a plan, so be it. The relationship between my clients and me is far more important than any one transaction.
We will work together to realize your goals, whether it be buying or selling. Let's build a strategy that works best for you and your family. Contact me today to get started!
