“Mark and Jenny are outstanding realtors. We have worked with Mark on a number of properties. He was amazing. Both in helping us sort through the various options, understanding what things we might need to consider – whether related to the neighborhood, the home itself or in relation to our goals. He really took the time to understand what we were looking for and helped us find the right house. Over the next few years we have referred multiple family members to Mark and he has helped all of them. Many were out of state and he took the time to help them understand the neighborhoods and overall the Salt Lake area and Utah market. He guided them through the transactions and made it very easy for them when looking for and buying a home from another state. He has been great in following up and is a great resource and friend. Mark is a great negotiator and very straight forward. He was able to help us and our family members navigate prices and negotiations with great aplomb. As physicians, we are limited on time and really appreciated Mark’s efficiency – he was able to find places for us to look at, screened through properties that were worthwhile to see, and was very flexible in accommodating our schedules and helping us find the right home. We have really appreciated Mark and Jenny’s help and cannot recommend them highly enough. They are simply fantastic!”

“Mark is a patient, honest, and highly skilled realtor. I felt comfortable trusting his judgement and recommendations on all aspects of the buying process. He was able to draw on his wide breadth of experience to get the best fit for me in the short and long term. Thanks to Mark, I now own a home in an area that I never thought would be in my price range.”

“Mark and Jenny are an excellent team with a thorough knowledge of the Salt Lake area and of the in’s and out’s of houses. They helped me buy a rental property last spring, guiding me to locations that would be best for the price range I wanted. We looked at a lot of homes, probably somewhere around 15, and they were always very patient, helping me through the process, from looking for the home to negotiating the details of the purchase to signing the papers at close. They are very prompt with responses to email and text, and I never felt rushed in asking questions or that my questions were bothering them. This was the fourth home I’ve purchased, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
— Chip Nakagawa, RN, Emergency Medicine, University of Utah
“Our experience was outstanding working with Mark and Jenny. Mark and Jenny’s knowledge of the real estate market is incredible. They know Utah like the back of their hand and are great at listening to your list of dreams and wishes for a home and then finding it! They are patient and don’t rush you in the process of finding the home you are looking for. They understand that it takes time! Mark and Jenny’s ability to negotiate is just right. They are organized and help you to be sure you have all you need throughout the paperwork, meetings and signing process. We are thrilled with our new home and would recommend Mark and Jenny to all of my friends and family when purchasing a home!”
— Matt Whooley, RN, Oncology, University of Utah
“My husband and I were referred to Mark and Jenny from close friends and we are so glad that they did. While we worked mostly worked with Mark, the MORE group brother and sister duo, are fabulous and made buying our first home an absolute breeze. Mark is extremely thorough, honest and knowledgeable. He was able to negotiate a very favorable price on our home as well as some other additional concessions which were much appreciated. Additionally, they are very well connected, if there is something you need done for your house or to be checked if it needs to be done they have someone for everything. And from our experience so far, everyone they have referred to us have been great. We highly recommend them and will for sure use them if we ever decide to sell our current home and purchase another.”
— Brittany Collins, Postdoctorate Fellow, University of Utah
“Mark is an outstanding realtor. He truly cares about his clients and it shows. He is prompt, professional and knowledgeable. We are definitely going to use him again for any future real estate needs and recommend everyone to use him, as well. We can’t say enough about how happy we are with our experience.”
— Traci Andreason, RN, BSN
“Even with the extreme buyers market of late 2020, Mark was able to help us locate a wonderful first home. We were in Switzerland for the entire process and not able to see any properties in person. However, we are very happy with the property Mark helped us purchase and could not have accomplished the process from abroad without his experience, knowledge, network, and diligence. We recommend Mark to other first time home buyers and seasoned real estate moguls alike.”
