Mark Karten

REALTOR®, Licensed Real Estate Broker

Languages: English

Over the last 12 years, Mark has helped hundreds of clients fulfill their real estate needs. Mark specializes in helping first time home buyers and distressed homeowners as well as property owners looking to sell for the highest price in the least amount of time.

In business, there are two types of customer service – transactional, where the agent disappears once the rental or sale is completed. The other method is relationship-based, which Mark embraces and encourages all agents to follow. Building a relationship includes actively listening versus multi-tasking and in turn, providing the information and service that’s requested. It is a relationship built on trust and respect, nothing is more important. If you’re tired of lip service with no follow through, contact Mark to have a conversation about how he can help you.
