Mark Brawley was a great asset to me as I navigated through my first home-buying experience. Mark was referred to me by a friend after he helped her and her husband buy their first home. Prior to beginning my property search, I interviewed several agents; however, at the end of the day, I felt as though Mark was the most responsive. He acknowledged all of my questions in a way that made me feel confident that he understood my needs. He also seemed genuinely interested in assisting me. Throughout the process, Mark demonstrated great working knowledge of the Houston area and the real estate market. The individualized search portal he created for me allowed me to view properties online at my leisure and narrow down my property search. When I was ready to view properties, Mark made himself available for showings while always accommodating my work schedule. When it came time for me to make an offer, Mark guided me through the negotiation process, and was quick and efficient with the paperwork. Throughout the process, I felt as though Mark genuinely had my best interest at heart, especially when unexpected issues arose with the seller just prior to closing. He kept me well-informed, and also worked collaboratively with my lender and escrow officer. Mark’s knowledge, expertise, responsiveness, and patience are all qualities that left me without any hesitation to recommend his services to other first-time home buyers (or anyone else, for that matter).
